Vivant Skin Care

OK, so you may know me as a makeup freak! But My makeup would never look as good as it does if I didn’t take care of my skin!
Ladies, most women wait until it’s too late to start taking care of their skin and then they invest in Botox and other things like it! Don’t follow this trend! If you start young, you have a great chance of having great looking skin when you are older!
I’m an Esthetician, I enrolled in school because “I liked to pop pimples” (gross I know! LOL) But when I started really learning I was hooked! and I love to help friends, family and , clients with their skin care issues!

With that said… When I heard that Vivant Skincare was looking for people to try their products, I was like “MEEEEEE!!!!” Unfortunately I wasn’t chosen! but later they emailed me and asked me if I would try their cleanser and I said “YES!!!” 
I’m glad I did! Their Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser is amazing! Wow what a feeling, It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, energize and so clean! I love that you only need a very small amount of product, it lathers just right and it gets the job done! 
I only wish they would have sent me other products to try! (I’m a serum junkie!)

I’ve been using it for a few days and I can already see my skin brighter and feeling softer! I think I’m officially hooked on this product!
A few facts about this cleanser : Is a universal cleanser with antioxidants, green tea, grape seed and kiwi extracts… yum!! (for my skin of course!)  and it helps to preserve the skins natural acid mantel! It’s great for all skin types! 
You  really couldn’t ask for a better product for the great price! 
They sent me the 2oz bottle which retails for $11.00
Their 8oz bottle is just $29.50 
and Their 16oz (wow) just $53.50
Check them out, you wont regret you did! And That’s my honest opinion!

Amazing before and after, thank God For L’Oreal

OK so about 4 weeks ago L’Oreal asked me to try some new products and in those was Youth Code, the day, night, eye and serum… 
Well I’m a skin care hog and I had to use it all, even tho I already have my regular regiment  I decided to stop it (been using it for 3 years) and I started using L’Oreal Youth Code and I was very happy with texture and feel of the product, not heavy not greasy, but a nice moisture feeling, I was happy.

                                         Before                                                                   After
I hardly take pictures of me without make up but on this day I wanted to do a before and after and when I saw the picture I was shocked to see how nice my skin looked! Now the picture on top you can see that Before my skin was dull and I had sooo many spots and uneven skin tone on the after picture my skin is bright and full of life and with less spots. I’m soo happy with the results! 
Then I thought to my self what about my lines??? well I looked at pictures and looked for my smile lines and again I was pleasantly surprised.
                                        Before                                                                     After
As you can see on my before my lines are deeper and I have many more than on my after.
Over all I’m extremely surprise that it worked so fast, and to be honest I’m not using it like I should, I use it every other night or day when I remember so I believe this is a great product!
I have to say that I was using a high end product before and Youth Code has showed me better results and the price cannot be beat!
For the Day/ Night Cream is 24.99 for 1.6oz
The Day Lotion is  24.99 for 1.7oz
The Serum is 24.99 1.0oz
The Eye cream is 24.00 for 0.5oz
The  Prices are great and the results are amazing as you can see! I give this product an A+++ .
Thank you for visiting Beauty addicts!!

Holy sunblock, L'Oreal!

Hello beauty addicts! I had the pleasure to be invited by L’Oreal to try one of their newest products.
These will be out in Florida in December first and later everywhere else, so us sun people here in Florida get to try it first. Woohoo!
If you know anything about skincare you know that the sun is the number one enemy to our skin and youth! If not protected correctly the damages could be horrific!
L’Oreal came out with a sun care line (which I love BTW) called Sublime Sun.
I love this!
They were smart enough to come up with a Face, a body, and also a spray in diferent sizes! Now as a mommy and a woman that does not like to feel gunk on her body, the spray it’s Fabulous!! It’s goes on smooth and silky and it dries fast and it’s water proof! (the bottle actually says Ultra water resistant) LOVE! The body and face lotion are great as well and the best part is that they come in 30 spf and 50 spf and they block UVB rays which are the ones that burn your skin and UVA which are higher wavelengths rays and both can cause skin cancer!
They get a thumbs up from me! I’m really enjoying this product!
They also Had Youth Code. OMG! My fave new product!
This product is also only available in Florida for now, but let me tell you it’s great!! I had heard it being advertise and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! In short its a new technology that works with your Genes to make your skin look brighter and younger! WOW!! I’ve been using it since i got it and I’m in love! I especially love the eye cream it comes with a silver applicator that I love! It feels cold on the skin and it makes the eyes areas look brighter and less tired! Their day lotion it’s fabulous to wear under makeup and it’s not heavy at all! They also have a night cream and a great serum!
Im a skin care junkie so i like to use all these steps! If you don’t personally like all these steps I at least recommend to always use an eye cream (to avoid those crow feet!) and a day cream with SPF and you can find it in this line and you can hardly feel you have it on!
I like to thank L’Oreal for inviting me to learn check out all these great products! They also gave me a great Cover it up By Emilio Sosa runner up of season 7 of project runway which I love it’s grey and yellow and it fits great! YAY! Also to Dr. Flor A. Mayoral for hosting this event, what a beautiful office and staff she has!
I don’t have anything bad to say about these products, I’m usually a Lancome user and their prices can be a little high, so to find sun and skin care this good and affordable it’s great in my book!
Until next time beauty addicts, don’t forget to protect your skin and moisturize! they will help your skin look beautiful!
