Father’s Day is fast approaching and is a great day to remember and or appreciate your father and show them a little extra love. Sometimes it seems really hard to pick out the right gift. I usually find myself searching online for hours and at the end still not sure what I am going to buy. And it's not that I don't know my father well, he is the manly man kind of guy and it seems difficult sometimes finding things that he doesn't have that he would truly enjoy. I was excited when I came across this Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver because I am pretty sure my dad has the same electric razor that he has been using since the 90s…possibly the 80s!  I was certain that needed to be replaced. What a great idea something he will use a lot and enjoy!

Panasonic ES8243A shaverThe Panasonic ES8243A Men’s 4-Blade Wet/Dry Electric Shaver is a amazing gift.  Not only will this give a extremely close shave but it’s so simple to use and clean. The Panasonic ES8243A has a easy to read digital liquid crystal display that indicates battery charge level by 10 steps and has cleaning reminders. To clean you simply hold the razor under running water and activate the Turbo mode. The razor accelerates up to 17,000 RPM and vibrates off any remaining whiskers. This Panasonic Razor also comes equipped with a convenient travel case for the man on the go.

My dad was amazed how close of a shave the Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver gave him and the length of time the battery held a charge, you can expect about 45 mins of use. Nanotechnology is used to polish the industry’s sharpest 30-degree blades to give that close shave. It also operates at 13,000 rpm to cut through the thickest of beards…my Dads nick name is Fuzzy so if you can imagine the power of this shaver really came in handy. It is also a wet/dry shaver which allows you to use it in the shower as well which is a convenient feature. Overall my dad is extremely happy with this shaver and looks forward to using it for many years to come.

After I solved the dilemma of what to get my father, I then had to decide what to get the father of my little man. I thought why not stick with the same concept for him and give him the Boots No7 Men Calming Anti-friction Shave gel, Boots No7 Men Calming post shave Recovery, and Boots No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturizer. I am a huge fan of all the Boots products I have tried in the past and was pretty certain that Jake would enjoy the men's products as well. 
No7 Calming Anti friction shave gel

Boots No7 Men Calming Anti-friction Shave Gel is for sensitive skin and is hypo-allergenic and gives you a great hydrated smooth shave….and for the ladies who like to occasionally borrow their men’s things I can tell you this gives you a amazing hydrated feel to your legs too.  The Boots No7 Men Calming Post Shave Recovery Balm is also for sensitive skin and will help your skin stay hydrated.  I am sure that almost everyone has had a shave where they are wishing for a cooling balm because of razor burn. This will help cool and calm any irritation and keep your skin feeling hydrated all day. Jake has always had issues with getting dry skin and razor bumps so he usually just trimmed his beard and left the rest alone. He was pleasantly surprised by using this combination he didn't get any razor bumps which for him is unheard of. He is extremely happy to have a shaving routine in place that keeps his skin bump free. And I am happy that he doesn't look like the guys from Duck Dynasty all the time :) Then to keep that nice smooth face from wrinkling from the suns rays there is  Boots No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturiser It is a anti-aging moisturizer which combines the unique protecting and renewing ingredients found in their renowned protect and perfect intense anti-aging serum. This will help defend against premature ageing and from UVA and UVB rays.

To me, January is all about a new you as you make resolutions and unwind from the holiday craze. As holiday bills are being paid off that doesn't leave a whole lot left over to better myself and my well-bring. With that in mind I found 5 fabulous products that I am currently obsessing over that will surprisingly not break the bank and will leave you relaxed and beautified! New year, new you and a new start to saving while giving yourself an at-home mental holiday :)

No7 Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask 2 certified fabulous

1) Boots NO7: Beautiful Skin Purifying Mask is for people with oily skin or combination, like me. It's meant to open pores, draw out impurities and help balance your skin with tailored nutrition to reveal healthy, bright and beautiful skin. I mistakenly assumed this mask was like others I have tried before and didn't exactly rush home to try it when I received it. After a few days I found it in my bathroom and decided to try it out since I started to see signs of blemishes developing. I squeezed some of the product out and began to apply to my damp face and immediately felt an incredible warming sensation that really wowed me! As I massaged it around it easily moved over my face and maintained the delightful warm feeling that I loved. After it was applied all over my face I let it sit for a bit while I did some dishes. The mask never dried up or made my face feel tight at all! It dried flawlessly and I barely noticed I was wearing it, so comfortable! I washed it off and my skin was at a perfect moisture balance, not dried out like most masks made me feel, and not in any way greasy or oily. The next day when I woke up and looked in the mirror my first thought was "why does my skin look so good today?" then as I was thinking what I did different I remembered the mask! I LOVE this product! It is a beauty must in my opinion. I completely felt pampered and radiant like I just had a celebrity facial at a high end spa...but I did it at home, far below a spa price too. Impressive! us.boots.com

No7 Smooth   Improve Cellulite Treatment certified fabulous

2) Boots NO7: Smooth & Improve Cellulite Treatment was my next step in self improvement. Now that my face was in-check it was time to work on my body which just went through holiday overeating and gift spending stress and it was pretty obvious it took a toll on me considering my pants now felt tighter. Besides getting back to the gym to shape up this body for bikini season I also use my new found secret weapon provided by Boot NO7 :) This product paired with the awesome packaging made it fun and easy to apply as the 5 metal balls on the applicator massaged my thighs while dispensing cellulite treatment to areas needing more than a gym workout. The massaging applicator encourages the drainage of trapped fluid and is proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It cools, refreshes and hydrates all day long! Self-esteem is now in process of being restored the more I use this! Well, that along with diet and exercise of course. It's not a quick fix but it does work! Treatment results for firmer, visibly smoother and less dimpled looking skin in just 4 weeks! Who doesn't need a little "cheat" to help get toned?  us.boots.com

Boots No7 Men Energising Face Wash 11.1.13 Certified FabulousThe Boots No7 brand of men’s skin care is a unique approach to the modern mans skin care needs. They have done an excellent job tailoring individual products to treat specific issues. Issues like: black heads in the pores, razor burned skin, and even tired looking eyes. By working to solve each issue, they have produced a dynamic line of products that complement each other perfectly. 

Boots No7 Men’s Energising Face Wash

This face wash is a refreshing splash of silky excellence. The light scented lather was invigorating to my skin. I could feel the oils of the day being gently coaxed out of my pores leaving a cleansed surface behind. After daily use of the face wash, my skin was clearer and less greasy over all. The fine balance of ingredients in this wash seemed to fully nourish my skin while achieving a purified clean. Definitely a winner in my opinion.

Boots Men Energising Face Scrub 11.1.13 Certified FabulousBoots No7 Men’s Energising Face Scrub

The face washes tougher brother. This scrub is an interesting mix of cleansing and exfoliating. I tend to have more sensitive skin, so I was recommended to use this product once a week, but daily washing is advised for those of a more rough skin type. The fine grit of this wash did a great job of shucking off dead skin and grime that your skin accumulates over time. I would equate it to a scrubbing pad to a pan, great for removing stubborn grime without damaging the surface. Word of caution though, don’t get over zealous with the scrubbing, this product doesn't pull any punches.

Hello Fabulously Beautiful Followers!  Hope you are having a great Friday. I know this week has gone by super fast for me, hopefully it has for you too.

I never thought I would ever be talking about wrinkle fillers.  In fact, I've avoided them like the plague.  But for some reason I just thought I'd never get wrinkles. Like I'd be the one woman in the world that the magic

02222013 No 7 Instant Illusion Wrinkle Filler Boots Certified Fabulouswrinkle fairy would wave her wand over and POOF! No wrinkles for Beckie.  But unfortunately my hours of sun bathing in my younger years have caught up with me. 


So before I went to the pros, I thought that I would try an at-home treatment first.  Of course I did my 
research and checked out all the reviews and came across, No. 7's Instant Illusion from Boots.  It's a hypo-allergenic wrinkle filler and within my price point.  So why not try it right?  One of the first things that I noticed was their packaging.  It's simple and straight to the point.  There wasn't a lot of instructions I had to read or other "fluff" on the inner tube or even on the unit carton.  The product comes in a 1oz tube that resembles a needle with a directional tip.  Very cute!  I like using products in tubes because I control how much product

 I use at a time and I don't feel like I'm wasting any of it.  Then when I think I'm almost done, I cut the end off and scoop out what's left- yeah I'm that girl!

Well one more week of my favorite month friends.  Keep up the lovin' because really it's the best gift you can give.

Healthy, glowing skin...that is what everyone strives for! It is something celebrities and even the average consumer pays a lot to achieve for special occasions. What if I told you all you needed was one product to get the look?

02202013 No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm certifed fabulous boots

Boots No 7: Instant Radiance Beauty Balm gives tired skin and instant "pick-me-up" for irresistibly long-lasting radiance, leaving skin glowing and feeling deliciously soft! This lotion is light weight and leaves a moisturized, non-greasy feeling with is an ideal base for makeup application...or just to wear alone for that soft, perky, healthy skin look! 

The lotion is a pink-white pearlescent color that has the most beautiful and natural brightening power. My face was instantly glowing when I applied it! I even did an in-office test for everyone and put a dab on the back of my hand and blended it in, then held my two hand up side by side and showed them how dramatic of a difference it made! It looks even better when the sun hits it, the skin is stunningly luminous...truly beauty in a bottle. The scent is also INCREDIBLE! 

I usually use this every morning before I apply my makeup and it enhances my makeup beautifully. Usually all of my illuminating products are primers or products you put on-top of makeup...so this was a nice change to have a product give hydration with the glow :)

Hello everyone! I hope you are starting your week off well! I am well over winter and there’s still a long way to go :( But instead of focusing on the sad, I’ll write about something good… I have found my new favorite lotion! I thought I already had a favorite, but I was wrong! No7 Completely Quenched Moisturizing Body Lotion absolutely blew me away, and made me raise my lotion standards.

02192013 No7 Completely Quenching Moisturising Body Lotion boots certified fabulous

First off, this lotion did everything it claimed to do for me - “light airy and quickly absorbed, it vanishes into thirsty skin to quench and care all day long. Softens, smoothes and evens out texture to leave skin looking healthy and radiant.” Need I say more? Well this lotion actually pulls through. The scent is exactly what I like in a lotion; smells fresh, clean, and is not overpowering. The texture is not thick or greasy, instead it absorbs quickly into my skin (something I always look for in a lotion) and my skin stays moisturized all day. The really exciting thing about this lotion is that it smoothes out the texture of my skin. I have never used a body lotion that noticeably changed the texture of my skin, so I was quite surprised when my skin was the softest and smoothest it has ever been! On top of that my skin looks brighter and healthier! This lotion is also hypo-allergenic, so it’s great for those with sensitive skin. I can’t wait for this winter to end because I will be ready for those short shorts come spring/summer with this lotion as my weapon!

At $10.99 I will be buying this product again and again, but if you’re looking for a lower priced option, check out Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Hypoallergenic Lotion for $6.99 at a local CVS or $3.59 on amazon.com. 

Higher option - VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion - which also helps to achieve younger-looking skin. This lotion is priced at $45.
