Summer is here again and that can only mean one thing, Sunscreen! With the days getting longer and the sun getting brighter we tend to spend a lot more time outside in the sun, and you don't want to forget to protect your skin. The best way to protect yourself from strong UV rays is by applying sunscreen to any exposed areas and be sure to repeat. There are two different kinds of sun screens that are hitting the headlines with much debate: Chemical and Physical. The Certified FABULOUS team has made it our mission to test many different brands out there and we wanted to give you some nice examples of physical sunscreens and chemical sunscreens. Here is what our team has found:physicalspf

 

Physical sunscreens work by deflecting the UV rays off of the skin by using all natural ingredients such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Typically, physical sunscreens are not absorbed through the skin, do not irritate the skin, and do not cause allergies.

Do you ever feel like sometimes when you look in the mirror all you can see is your pores looking back at you? I sure do! I feel like my pores are always huge and I was starting to give up hope on a solution to this until I tried the Neutrogena Pore Refining products.   They are so confident that they can shrink your pores that Neutrogena has a “Pore No More” Challenge #PoreNoMore. It is a 7-day challenge and what they want you to do is Swap out your regular skincare routine for Neutrogena Pore refining collection, using it up to 2x a day for one week. After your 7-day test they challenge you to feel confident in your bare skin. 

Challenge accepted Neutrogena!

Neutrogena pore refining daily cleanserSo Neutrogena offers a Pore Refining daily cleanser, toner, exfoliating cleanser and moisturizer. They have my morning and night routine covered. The products are of course aimed to shrink the look of large pores.  They are formulated to penetrates deep into skin to remove dirt, oil & makeup that can clog enlarged pores then it sweeps away dead surface skin and smoothes over rough, uneven patches to tighten large pores.  Sounds like a lot to deliver right? I was really happy with my results after using all of these products for a short amount of time.neutrogena pore refining exfoliating cleanser

First I would usually start with the Pore Refining Daily cleanser. This cleanser will help the look of pores and refine skin’s tone and texture.  The cleanser feels really nice and left my skin feeling clean without drying it out which is always nice.  Neutrogena also offers a Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser which will also help reduce the look of pores and they say you should notice a difference within one week.  What makes this exfoliator work is micro beads that will help get rid of dead surface skin and also help even out skin tone. The alpha-hydroxy formula will penetrate deep into pores to remove dirt, oil and makeup.  I really enjoyed how this made my skin feel. I used it every over day in replace of the Daily cleanser but you can use it every day depending on your preference.

So for all of you who don’t have the time or money to go to a spa here are a few products to help you relax for this holiday.

Neutrogena rainbath renewing shower gel

 

Neutrogena Rainbath® Renewing Shower and Bath Gel - Pear & Green Tea softens and conditions skin without a heavy leave-behind residue. This shower gel has a unique fragrance blend of pear and green tea which is absolutely delightful and relaxing. Not only does it smell great but it works to renew the look of your skin as well as feeling softer, smoother and truly renewed. Another great thing about this product is you can also use it for shaving! I love products that have multiple uses because my shower tends to get filled with multiple products and it is nice to have something that truly works great for both purposes that it says it will.

You might be quite familar with Neutrogena but these next few products may be a part of Neutrogena that you haven't discovered yet. That is Neutrogena Naturals. This naturals line offers Neutrogena products with no harsh chemicals, sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, or phthalates. This line uses "pure, safe ingredients that are naturally derived" (naturals.neutrogena.com). From their formulas, packaging, even to their website, Neutrogena takes into account the many aspects of a skincare line and how to make it as naturally derived as they can. I particullarly found it pretty cool that they took into account their website and how to use nature to power it - the "Green Saver" is a "self-sustainable, sun-feuled and wind-powered server that only uses renewable energy to keep [their] website running" (naturals.neutrogena.com). But what about the products? We'll here's my experience with a few that I tried out. Neutrogena Naturals Makeup remover and cleanser


Neutrogena Naturals: Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover

This hypoallergenic cleanser gently cleanses and removes makeup in one step. Your skin will not be left feeling stripped or dry, instead feels fresh, hydrated and soft. I was also able to use this to remove my eye makeup without any irritation. This product is 86% naturally derived - the remaining percentage of ingredients are necessary to "maintain effectiveness" (Neutrogena) and was not tested on animals. The bottle contains up to 50% post consumer recycled material.

Neutrogena Naturals Acne Foaming ScrubNeutrogena Naturals: Acne Foaming Scrub

This Neutrogena naturals product also has the added benefits of salicylic acid acne treatment to help treat and prevent breakouts. This is a great product to add to your skincare routine for clear skin! As a foaming scrub, I found it to be quite gentle while the microbeads effectively renewed and cleared dead skin cells for softer skin. My skin did not feel dried out or irritated after using this scrub. This product is 93% naturally derived and was not tested on animals.

IT'S NATIONAL BUBBLE BATH DAY! 

That's right, it's time to unwind, uplift and refresh your mood with a steamy hot bath! A bath is boring without bubbles so indulge all you want, you deserve it...plus I don't know where you live but it's about negative ten here in the east-coast! 

While you are soaking and thawing out while enjoying your bubbles you can wipes your winter blues away with uplifting scents surrounding you. One of my favorite brands, NEUTROGENA, has an amazing product called Rainbath that works as a shower and bath gel! A rich, conditioning lather with ingredients that leave skin feeling irresistibly clean, smooth and refreshed. This special formula rinses clean, without any heavy residue. Rainbath can even be applied as a skin-softening shaving gel for legs, helping save time and money on unnecessary products! So you can have you cake and eat it too :)

Happy Holidays!

I hope you are enjoying being with friends and family during this season and hopefully enjoying some time off of work!

Now that the holidays are winding down though we are going to need help to breath, relax and actually get some rest! Our bodies need to recuperate and adjust back to a normal eating routine, we need to repair our stressed skin and work on renewing our energy and getting back to a normal sleep cycle! I have found the best products to help with all of that! Here are my top 8 picks for getting back to a balanced life once again :)

1) Neutrogena: Microdermabrasion System

I love this system! It absolutely cleaned by skin, got rid of dead skin cells, rough and dull skin and left a new brightness and radiance to my complexion! It's a win/ win with this facial cleaning tool...and it won't break the bank! It comes with 12 single use pads AND batteries! Yay! Each puff is pre-dosed with ultra-fine crystals and mild purifiers for the perfect degree of gentle exfoliation. What's more, the massaging micro-vibrations boost surface cell turnover for firmer, younger-looking skin. This is the perfect way to rejuvenate your skin after a stressful, junk food festivities filled holiday. You can use daily or once a week depending on skin sensitivitywww.neutrogena.com

Are you meeting your significant other's parents this holiday season? Not sure what to wear? Getting all wound up about it? Depending on the setting, whether its a fancy gathering or a casual dinner, you'll want to choose an appropriate outfit. For the more casual meetings, a nice blouse and stylish pants should do the trick. For Jessica's meet the parents look, she chose a patterned blouse with black pants and simple pearl earrings. Don't go overboard with your outfit, but don't shy away from showing your unique and lovely style! 

Highlight Item:

Royal Print Sweater from Wizards of the West

Soft Beauty to Meet the Parents - Polite Posh

Quick makeup tips: The main thing to remember is to keep your makeup light! You don't want to look too sexy or trashy, so the key is to look like a nice and sweet "Girl Next Door" type...whether you are or not, you don't want to put it all out there on the first introduction. Plus, second chances are rare! Neutrogena has all you need for a clean, light and polished makeup look...it's their specialty :)

I like to take care of my face, and one of my must have products is a good facial cleanser. I've tried a lot of facial cleansers and many of them have major drawbacks. Some leave my skin too tight, some leave my face red and blotchy, some don't clean enough, I've even had one that made me break out! I didn't think that was possible!!

So when I find a cleanser I like, I tend to stick with it for awhile.

Neutrogena is a brand I trust and so I didn't hesitate at all to try their Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser. And I was right, which I usually am (just ask my husband). The cleanser turns into a gentle foam that doesn't over dry my skin. My skin feels fresh and clean afterwards, but not tight or stripped.

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser 11.3.13 Certified Fabulous

Because of its gentleness, it's my favorite cleanser to use after I exercise. When I come home from the gym or a run, my face is red and sensitive. I find my normal cleansers are too harsh for my skin in this fragile state and, even though these cleansers work perfectly any other time, they make my face redder and sometimes even sting a bit.

This Summer my husband and I went on a road trip from Maine to Georgia for my brother's wedding. It took us 26 hours total to get from one end of the eastern coast to the other (thanks to stops, traffic, and diverting from course to see the Chesapeake Bay Bridge). I've found when I tell people that we decided to drive instead of fly, I get reactions of disgust and sympathy. But I have no idea why, it was amazing!

We love road trips and we try to take one every other summer. So why do so many people think of a road trip with dread? Well, my theory is that it's because they aren't preparing the right way (also the fact that we don't have kids yet may help...). Make sure you have your GPS and charger (if you have one), your maps (yes, even if you have the GPS as well). Always make sure to have a good old fashioned atlas in the backseat (just in case), a first aid kit, snacks, water, and good music. I also always splurge for a good audio book to help me drive through the night.

But while all that is necessary, you need to ensure you can remain comfortably locked in a moving metal cage for hours (or days) on end. Here is my beauty product checklist to make you comfortable throughout the trip:

1. La Roche-Posay Thermal Water. This soothing water is a fine mist spray that's perfect for La Roche Posay thermal spray waterrefreshing your face at rest areas or when stopping for food. It tones and refreshes skin, perfect for after spending hours in the car. It's like a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer in a super quick spray!

Bath and Body Works PocketBacs2. Bath & Body Works PocketBac Hand Sanitizers. Not surprisingly, on the road means a limited supply of sinks and hand soap. I'm sure I don't need to convince you of the importance of hand sanitizer however, let me recommend Bath & Body Works mini PocketBacs! They smell great, come in super convenient sizes, and they're cheap! I had one in my purse, my suitcase, my car, my pocket, everywhere.

Who doesn't want soft, silky hair during the winter months?  With Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave-In Cream, we get what we want! Moisture is so important during the cold, dry season and since we can't just sit in a steam room all day, we need assistance.   I have curly, frizzy, color-treated but otherwise healthy hair and this cream is great at keeping the flyaways... well, away.

The triple moisture system comes from naturally derived extracts like olive, meadowfoam seed and sweet almond. Olive penetrates to the center of the hair strand while meadowfoam seed brings the moisture to the silky hairmiddle and sweet almond covers the surface.  With daily use, I've really noticed a difference in the humidity level of my hair.

You only need a small amount spread evenly through-out hair and it immediately gets absorbed and starts to protect your hair, especially the dry ends.  It's lightweight, non-greasy and smooth!  I simply style as usual after applying and my hair is soft, silky and my natural curls stay manageable all day.

I love the added benefit of UV filters to this leave-in treatment as well.  I don't have to worry about sun damage.

So remember to moisturize your hair this season but more importantly, take care of yourself.
