Win these ICU Sunglasses!

Eco-Chic Sunglasses – ICU Sunglass Review and Giveaway! OVER- Congrats Cecily from Texas!!!!

Win these ICU Sunglasses!

Win these ICU Sunglasses and one other Tortoise shell frame pair! ICU has gifted me with 2 pairs to giveaway to my followers!

Cute sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection are a must-have fashion accessory for the skin and sun savvy girl on the go! Sunglasses protect our eyes from damaging rays that can cause eye health issues and of course they also protect the vulnerable skin around the eyes as well. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body and lacks oil glands so this skin is easily damaged and usually the first area of the face to show premature aging. The muscles between the eyes are called the corrugator and this is the most common area that men and women get Botox injections since when we squint these muscles come together and eventually make the lines commonly referred to as the “11” by our dermatologist and plastic surgeon friends. This is so common that the company that distributes Botox  has created a whole advertising campaign about the “11” lines. We can stave off the development of these lines by avoiding squinting when possible- good sunglasses will help immensely!  Pigmentation issues can pop up around the eyes too so protect your peepers with sunglasses that offer both UVA/UVB protection. Remember that UVA rays penetrate through glass so when we are driving we aren’t protected from the sun.

I recently discovered a wonderful brand called ICU Eyewear that not only offer UVA/UVB protective lenses but are stylish, eco-friendly and affordable – yes affordable! Sometimes “eco-anything” denotes a higher price tag but the folks at ICU eyewear in Hollister, CA want everyone to have gorgeously protective sunglasses so they are priced just right – you may want to buy several pairs for different outfits, events, moods, hair colors (you know who you are! etc.) You are sure to find a pair that will reflect your own personal style! ICU was the first sunglass company in the U.S. to make designs with reclaimed plastic, recycled metal and sustainable bamboo. They are fashion-forward and some even incorporate sparkle and really fashionable designs – there are some very sophisticated designs and pink and sparkly too which works for me! They are sold online and in many stores including Whole Foods. The good folks at ICU Eyewear donate 1000’s of pairs of their reading glasses every year to charity! They have the cutest reading glasses and an online chart on their site which can tell you what percentage of magnification you need so there is no guessing games there. Also, it is interesting to note that studies say 73% of adults wear sunglasses and that only 58% of adults make their children wear sunglasses. I think it’s great that ICU has cute and affordable sunglasses for children too!

I have two different pairs to give away to one lucky reader!  Just comment on this post and share it on social media for a chance to win! The winner will be contacted Sept 20th and announced on my blog. This contest is only open to U.S. residents.

Cristophe Argan Oil Treatment for Hair- Review and Giveaway! – Winner Melissa from AZ!!



Cristophe is a famous Beverly Hills Hairstylist who keeps A-list celebs looking their best. He saw a gap in the haircare market and he wanted to create high end innovative formulas for his celeb clientele. We all love that just fresh from the salon look but it’s almost impossible to “mane”tain isn’t it!  He also wanted this impeccable line to be accessible to everyone but still have that high-end salon quality so he created Cristophe Professional.

I just tried the Argan Oil Treatment. I put two small drops in my hair before flat ironing it. It really brought my lifeless “unexpressive” hair as Cristophe would say back to life – with more shine and luster and it didn’t weigh it down the way some serums do. I could also have applied it on wet hair before styling and I also think it would be a great deep conditioning treatment if applied liberally and allowed to stay on – even better with a cap on and applying some heat to really repair the hair or overnight.  That’s what I’m going to try next! I want to add that this serum smells pleasant and light – it’s not super fragrant which I like and it doesn’t smell bad which some shine serums do in my experience.

I think what really sets this serum apart is that it contains a proprietary cocktail of “Vital Energy Complex” – which contains stem cells of a rare red flesh grape which is very protective to our hair.  It also contains Adenosine Tri Phosphate, and Phospholipids which treat your scalp with anti-aging, moisturizing and revitalizing properties. These ingredients are equivalent to ingredients you find in the best skincare which as an Esthetician I find outstanding!

All of Cristophe’s products are salon developed and approved. Color safe. Paraben free and Cruelty free. They are not tested on animals – only celebrities!

Now for the giveaway!! I’m trying Rafflecopter for the first time. Good Luck! U.S. Only.

Soi Candle Company

The Soi Candle Company Giveaway – Winners Melissa and Morgan!!!

I’ve enjoyed and shared these gorgeous and wonderful smelling candles for years. When I had my skincare clinic in San Francisco these were a very popular item with women and men and I had customers come in and buy several at a time because they never wanted to be without them and they freaked out a little when I was out of stock!  I would always order the little votives for nice little thank you gifts for my customers and they burn for 28 – 30 hours and I was able to customize them with my own business logo. The Soi Candle Company is also just staffed with the nicest people and even though I was just a small business they always made me feel important – they are just a great team of people with amazing customer service. I remember once a few of my little votives arrived cracked and they sent me out a whole new supply! My most popular selling scent was Red Currant but they were all good!

My first of many giveaways will be Soi Candles! I actually have two to give away to two lucky winners!  They are also have a 30% off special for everything storewide until the end of May. You must use coupon code LUVMOM2014

Why do I love these candles? Yes, they do come beautifully packaged and perfect for any gift giving occasion and a great hostess gift – along with a bottle of wine but you know you’re usually going to drink it with them so a candle is a thoughtful gift for after the party is over.  It’s what’s inside these candles that really sets them apart. These made in the USA candles are 100% FDA approved and made from Kosher soy oil.  Soy oil is naturally rich in skin-loving Vitamin E, Essential Fatty Acids and Lecithin.  You can actually use the “melt pool” as a skin moisturizer on yourself or with a friend! These clean burning soy cancels burn 40% longer than traditional wax candles and do not emit any harmful toxins into your space!  They are also 100% gluten free! They are great in the bathroom, living room and the bedroom. A candle is the perfect way to set a mood with illumination and of course with the amazing aromatherapy scents. The Soi Co has a wide array of scents from savory to sweet to everything in-between. There is something for everyone and they aren’t intrusive scents – they are light and fresh.

I’m giving away two of my favorites! They burn for 90-100 soot-free hours! There are in a High-Ball jar and 13/5 oz and packaged in a beautiful ribbon-adorned box perfect for gift giving to yourself or someone special. They retail for $27 each. Who doesn’t want to bring a tranquil spa-like feel to their home with a delicious scent and skin-calming and moisturizing ingredients?

Cherry Blossom is a clean and fresh scent with notes of Asian pears, plums, Japanese cherry blossom with hints of warm Oakmoss.



The Red Currant is a delightful blend of crisp red currant berries and sweet swirls of vanilla –  photo-30
