Healthy Skin with Garnier SkinActive®


I have been feeling kind of old lately. Before anyone goes and gets mad at me about feeling old while I am still in my 20’s, let me explain. It wasn’t until just recently that it really hit me that I will be 30 before I know it. It kind of seems like my 20’s have gone by in a big blur so far. There has been a lot that has happened and a lot more that can happen in the next 2 years before I turn 30. My hair hasn’t shown any signs of aging yet, but I can definitely see it in my skin. It just wasn’t looking as youthful as it used to. My skin looked tired!

I wouldn’t necessarily feel tired but if I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I instantly felt a little more exhausted. I wanted to address the problem and treat my skin with something that would help it look brighter, so I could feel confident with my skin again. I did just that, with the help of Garnier SkinActive®.

I took the Clearly Brighter Challenge and started using the Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 every day for two weeks. It is clinically proven daily moisturizer that works quickly to even out tone and texture for brighter, smoother skin. It has antioxidants like Vitamin C to help give smoother, brighter skin in just one week.* It is a lightweight moisturizer that is oil-free, so it won’t clog pores either!

I can’t even believe how much better my skin looks after using this product for just two weeks! I still look like the makeup free me, but a much less tired looking version. My skin is so much brighter than it was before! I knew there were going to be some changes, but it wasn’t until actually looking at the before and after picture that I realized just how much of a change there was.

This product is definitely one that will continue to be a part of my daily routine. You can try it out for yourself and take the Clearly Brighter Challenge to see what a difference it can make in your skin too! Garnier SkinActive® products are available at CVS, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and Rite Aid.

 

Now I can completely agree with the brand’s tagline, “The active way to visibly healthier skin” because I have experienced it firsthand. My skin is visibly healthier than it was two weeks ago, thanks to Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

Life is an Adventure

I wouldn’t ever call myself the adventurous type. I like safety and I like the security of knowing what is going on around me. That applies is basically all parts of my life except for my love of roller coasters. Roller coasters are one of the few places I feel like I can let go a little bit and enjoy the adventure. I thought that I could pretty much control the way my life worked… then I became a mom.

Being a mother has completely made me rethink the way I have to “plan” my life. Although Harper was totally planned, she decided to join our family by surprise when she came four weeks early! She literally started her life by surprising us and hasn’t stopped since. She forces me to [Read more…]

Preschool Favorites with Mabel’s Labels Giveaway!

I know it sounds incredibly cliche, but I just can’t believe I have a kid in school. I know it is just preschool, but it is crazy to me to think that she has that independence twice a week. Her preschool didn’t require many school supplies, just a box of crayons, a package of baby wipes, and a box of markers, but I wanted to make her feel like she was officially a school kid.

Easy Bright Confetti Pumpkins Halloween Decor

I have realized as I decorate for holidays that I really like non traditional holiday decor. If there are Halloween decorations in a store that are made with colors besides just orange and black, I always find myself gravitated to them. I love the different perspective that non traditional colors can bring to a holiday. This year is the first year that I have had the opportunity to decorate for Halloween in our current home because we moved almost exactly a year ago and the last thing I was about to do was decorate for Halloween when I was just trying to get my life out of boxes. It has been really fun to decorate this year and to take out old decor that I forgot that I even owned! One spot in my house that I knew I wouldn’t have decor for was my coffee table. We have a tray that goes on there that usually has succulents in it but I wanted something a little more festive for Halloween. I knew that I didn’t want it to be totally traditional because my living room is such a bright and cheery space.

The perfect solution was to make these adorable confetti pumpkins!

I love how much color these pumpkins bring to my Halloween decor but I think the best part about these is the fact that they are INSANELY easy to make! They are so easy to make, my four year old helped me with most of it! [Read more…]

Bringing a Bold Touch to an Unfinished Room

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™

As I was finishing up our fun mermaid bathroom makeover, I realized that there are exactly three rooms in my house that I haven’t done an ounce of decorating in. One of those is the guest bedroom that will become a baby nursery and the others are the two other bathrooms in my house. I feel like bathrooms are some of the easiest spaces to decorate because of how small they are,  yet the bathroom that visitors see most often and the bathroom that I see most often aren’t decorated at all! I will definitely be adding both of them on my list of things to do. Until then, the best I can do is just keep them nice and clean!

Making Heels Comfortable on www.girllovesglam.com

Have you ever purchased a pair of shoes that you just absolutely could not live without? Have you ever purchased those shoes only to find out that they are the most uncomfortable things you have ever put on your feet? That is exactly what happened to me when I purchased my beloved black and white striped heels.  [Read more…]

Getting an Immunity Boost on the Go

I’m sharing #Ricola  in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

If you have followed along on social media, you probably know that I have been at a maker summit for the past few days. It has been such a neat experience and has been really fun to be able to experience it with some of my closest friends.

Traveling can be such a hard thing on our bodies, especially when you have to wake up so early to travel. I knew that I wanted to keep on top of any chances of getting sick, so I came prepared with my Ricola Herbal Immunity Lozenges. [Read more…]

Carissa Miss modest dresses with major heart

I can’t even tell you how much I LOOOOOVE it when I learn about shops who do what they can to make a difference. I love it even more when that shop is started by a friend and their shop supports something I believe in so much. That is exactly what happened when Carissa Miss started her shop.

Carissa Miss Modest Dress Maternity on www.girllovesglam.com

The Carissa Miss shop is full of modest dresses that Carissa designed herself. Every piece is perfect. I own two dresses and they are both absolute favorites of mine. I am wearing her Kellie Baseball Tee dress as I write this very post! Each piece is handmade and very high quality as well. You can customize the dresses if you need to as well by ordering them as a custom listing. If you are really tall or really short and need a custom length, that is totally something she can do. She also offers nursing friendly dresses! Guys, let’s just take a moment for THAT! [Read more…]

Cleansing Your Face Just Got Personalized

Tracking Pixel

I experienced using Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub as part of a sponsored campaign. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As you probably all know, I have tried out many different facial cleansers in my lifetime. You may be the same way. It is rare that I find one that is so much different than the other cleansers I have tried in my life but I did when I gave Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub a try.

Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub on www.girllovesglam.com

What sets Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub apart from the rest is the fact that I was able to completely control how much or how little exfoliation my face got. The scrub is dry when it is in the package and it is activated by adding a little water to the product in your hand. You can add a very small amount of water for the most exfoliation or more water for a very gentle exfoliation. [Read more…]

First Try: BareMinerals Gen Nude Collection

Before any of you start thinking I am a pro at everything, let me tell you a little story. I am not a pro at everything (shocker)! I was so excited to bring to you a new video series I will be doing once a month. It is called First Try and I will be trying new products for the first time on camera and sharing my opinion of those products and seeing how user friendly they are on the first try. Well the first one is coming to you today… sort of.

First Try: BareMinerals Gen Nude Collection

As you can see, I filmed my video and tried the products. The problem is that when I went to go edit the video, there was no sound. NO SOUND! This is just a happy reminder that not all bloggers can afford to pay for a film crew and have to rely on their own knowledge to do just about everything. Sadly, that came back to bite me this time around and I honestly have no idea why it did that! The good news is that I did try these products and really liked them and would love to still give you the info about them so you can go give them a try too! [Read more…]
