I decided to give Aveeno’s Positively Ageless line a try, so I picked up the Youth Perfecting Moisturizer SPF 30 and Resurfacing Scrub. I love them both. The moisturizer is thick, but it didn’t feel heavy on my skin. It melted right in. The scrub was nice too – very gentle with a nice fragrance. The moisturizer has a light fragrance too, but the scent doesn’t linger on your skin. Thanks Aveeno!

Lately I’ve been oding on pumpkin! I mean it’s been pumpkin coffee, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin this and pumpkin that! If it comes in pumpkin flavor, I’m ordering it! So naturally, after seeing this news report about all the different pumpkin facials spas are offering, I decided I wanted to try a pumpkin facial right now!
Then I thought, how could I make a homemade version? And that’s when I went to my pantry and started mixing up a recipe! Pumpkin spa day here I come!
I mixed some Libby’s pumpkin puree (about 1/8 cup) with 1 tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. You could also go the super old fashioned way and boil down pumpkin and water to create your own puree. The pumpkin alone has tons of benefits for your skin. It’s loaded with vitamins A, C, and E, which have been proven to improve the appearance of skin. Pumpkins also have carotenoids that help fight free radicals and wrinkles. Cinnamon helps plump your skin and gets rid of acne by bringing blood and oxygen to the surface of your skin. Sugar, of course, is a great natural exfoliator.
After exfoliating my skin, I applied a pumpkin face mask. I used equal parts pumpkin puree and facial moisturizer. I worked it in and soaked up all the vitamins for about 20 minutes. I rinsed and re applied moisturizer. My skin felt great afterwards and it gave me a nice glow! Now I’m off to go get me a pumpkin latte, I just can’t get enough!
Happy Thanksgiving Beauties! Gobble Gobble!

This is the ultimate gentle cleanser. It’s pH balanced, so it doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. It’s clear and fragrance free, and also has anti-aging properties , because it’s formulated with Green Tea and Cucumber which are both anti-inflammatory. It also contains Resveratrol to help fight off free-radicals. It easily removes makeup and impurities, leaving your skin in the perfect condition to apply the anti aging cream.
I love the applicator cooling tip. It glides on smoothly while cooling and applying the eye cream evenly. This white fragrance free cream targets under eye wrinkles and bags. The cooling tip helps ward off puffiness and reduces tugging around the under eye area. It’s formulated with Vitamin C Ester, DMAE, and Retinol to aid in its anti-aging properties.
This treatment is lightweight, fragrance free and hypoallergenic. It has a yellowish tint to it with a powdery finish. It leaves your skin like a perfect blank canvas for your makeup application. It can be used all over – under eye, lips, neck and even your décolleté. Ingredients include, Clinical-strength DMAE, Retinol and Vitamin C Ester, CoQ10, and Shea Butter. These ingredients work together to hydrate, build collagen to firm and sculpt your skin. Click here to learn more about these ingredients.
I enjoyed using this trio to combat the signs of aging. Since I’m still in my twenties, I have minimal signs of aging and I contribute that to starting a skin routine early on in life; however, I really enjoyed the quality of these products – especially the cleanser! I like to use it with my Clarisonic from time to time. All three products contain ingredients proven to improve the look and feel of your skin.
Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash is great for dry skin. It’s gentle on your skin and not harsh like some body washes that are soapy and overly scented. It has a white creamy consistency and lathers up well. It’s lightly scented with lavender and chamomile extracts help sooth and calm you as you wash the day away. It was nice to switch it up a bit – since I have dry skin I always stick to one kind of body wash, but this one did the trick!
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is a best seller because it’s good stuff! I don’t even have to say much about this lotion because it’s been tried and true. It feels light, but moisturizes like a heavy weight. It contains oatmeal to help nourish your skin and keep it supple.
Using both products together has greatly improved my skin. Sometimes we need to shake up our beauty routine to see better results.
Samples of both products will be available in this month’s Beauty Box!

Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Typically when you think of makeup remover pads or wipes, you think of pre-moistened wipes or cotton pads that you soak with a solution; but these are different. They are dry cotton pads that you simply add a few drops of water to, and poof – you’ve got yourself a handy-dandy makeup remover pad! These are perfect for travel, because it eliminates the need to carry liquids and they don’t dry out like regular makeup remover wipes. Each pad also contains aloe and vitamin E to keep your skin feeling silky soft.
When I tested these out, I ended up needing two pads to completely remove my makeup. To be fair, my makeup was rather fresh. That morning I applied; primer, concealer, Nars tinited moisturizer, blush, bronzer, and mascara. It was a minimal look, but only two hours had passed since then. There is a big difference between removing fresh makeup and 8 hours old makeup! The pad glided nicely against my skin and felt extra luxurious compared to my usual makeup remover wipes. The extra cushy cotton pad was very nice. I did have a harder time removing my mascara, but then again it was really fresh!
Every Beauty has partnered with Beauty Box 5 this month and is offering 30% of the entire site. Just enter promo code BB5 – offer ends October 15th 2013. Beauty Box Five is a monthly beauty sample subscription box. Each box contains 4 – 5 samples of makeup, skincare and anything else beauty related. Click here to check out my Beauty Box 5 review.
