Campaign 14 is Live

Campaign 14 is here.  If you’ve been needing eye shadow, this campaign is for you.

We Introduce the NEW Eye Shadow Quads, in 10 exciting color palettes, The NEW Longwear Gel Eye Liners, and Longwear Gel Eyeshadows (My FAVORITE). One caution to remember, the Longwear Gels do NOT came with an applicator, so you’ll need an eye shadow brush.

Not sure of a color .. TRY IT ON – before you order.

I’m really liking this “try it on” tool.  I’ve taken a “selfie” of my face without any makeup and saved it to my phone, then I simply follow the directions and upload my photo as I “try on” different colors.   If you need help using the “try it on” tool let me know.

The winner of the Monthly Drawing for May is Betty Mader. Congratulations.

You can watch the video on the Beauty and Bluejeans Facebook Page.

What are ceramides?

There’s been quite a bit of talk about needing ceramides for your skin lately, but what are they exactly?

Ceramides make up over 50% of our skin’s composition in the form of lipids (fats). They are concentrated in the uppermost layers of skin–epidermis layer–and their roles are crucial for your skin’s health. Think of ceramides as the glue of your skin. This glue acts as a protective layer that holds our skin cells together.  Ceramides help limit moisture loss and protect against pollutants in our environment.

Ceramides have also been shown to effectively treat  childhood atopic dermatitis issues. Ceramides are naturally occurring and can be found in many food sources, especially in plants called Phytoceramides.   

Because ceramides are in the uppermost layer of your skin, they are also the most susceptible to our surrounding environments. Sun damages, environmental pollutants, and aging all reduce the effectiveness and amount of ceramides in your skin.

So how can you tell if your skin needs ceramides? Look for the signs. Envision a piece of paper that is held together by glue.  If the glue melts away you’ll see  dry, flaky pieces of paper. The same concept can be seen in your skin, without ceramides you might see dehydration, roughness, wrinkles, irritations, redness, and dryness.

But, don’t fear, Because ceramides are concentrated in the uppermost layers of skin–epidermis layer– applying skin care creams, lotions and serums that contain ceramides can be used effectively.  The ceramides are absorbed through the skin.

Check the ingredient list on your favorite lotion, cream or serum, does it contain ceramides?  If not, you can easily find one that does.  Remember, ceramides make up over 50% of our skin’s composition in the form of lipids (fats), and are an important factor in the health of your skin.

Campaign 13 is live!

Campaign 13 is here!  It’s all about the launch of more Vitamin C products.  A lip scrub, lip treatment mask, and body serum.

Did you know?  Vitamin C – Also known as ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant that helps recover the appearance of  skin that’s become dull over.  With consistent use, it can help to brighten your skin and visibly even skin tone.

And don’t forget about the Monthly Drawing, for anyone that places an order with me. (Direct Delivery, or Pick Up in Cottonwood).

Plus … A WOW deal you need to check out

8 Common Laundry Mistakes You Might Be Making

As an Avon Representative, I receive weekly discounts from major brands and helpful emails as a part of our Avon Perks programs.   Last week the email included an interesting article

“8 Common Laundry Mistakes You Might Be Making”

For some, laundry is the best chore of the week. For others, it’s a frustrating and never-ending cycle of washing, drying, and folding that often gets put off for days. No matter how you feel about a good spin cycle, your laundry is an essential part of your chore routine. Yet, you may be committing some common mistakes that could be harming your clothes. Keep reading to learn how to avoid these classic slip-ups.

 

Mishandling Stains

The only thing worse than getting a stain is allowing a stain to set in, which can effectively ruin your clothes. Tackle it right away and avoid scrubbing at the new stain—this can cause it to spread and can also wear down the fabric of your garment. Gently blot and work at it from the outside, which will help contain it. Finally, when you wash it, avoid immediately drying without checking the stain’s condition. Once it’s dried, the heat will set the stain and make it much more difficult to remove.

Adding Too Much Detergent

Extra detergent means extra clean clothes, right? Wrong! Be sure to follow the instructions of your preferred detergent and keep a close eye on the line as you pour. Excess detergent can cause an accumulation of soap, leaving residue on your clothes and allowing for a potential build-up of bacteria.

 Incorrectly Preparing Clothes

As you load the washing machine, give each piece of clothing a once over. Any items with zippers should be zipped up, as the zipper teeth can snag other clothing as they move around in the washer. Keep buttoned shirts unbuttoned, sleeves included to protect the buttonholes. Finally, be sure to check any pockets for pens, lipsticks, and other items that can cause a nasty mess in the washing machine.

Ignoring the Dry-Clean Only Tag

Not all clothes can handle the washing machine. Check your clothing tags for “Dry-Clean Only” and don’t ignore this important instruction! They may seem fine, but a rough spin cycle can eventually damage certain materials, including leather, suede, silk, and items with embellishments

Forgetting To Clean Your Dryer

It’s common practice to clean out the lint filter after each dry, but when is the last time you cleaned out your dryer duct? Like the filter, lack of cleaning can be a serious fire hazard in your home. At least once a year, tackle your dryer duct by detaching the hose from the back and clearing out any lint or build-up.

Over Drying Your Clothes

You might be shocked to learn just how damaging over-drying your clothing can be! If possible, air-dry your clothes to preserve the materials that are often worn down as they’re dried over and over again and help keep their shape.

Incorrectly Sorting

How do you sort your laundry loads? Many opt for a simple light and dark clothing split, but the truth is, it’s best to go a few steps further. Sort by materials as well to get the best clean on all of your clothes. For example, make one load for heavy items like denim, one for lighter items like blouses and delicates, and one for bulky bedding and towels.

Leaving Your Clothes in the Machines

Laundry is a great “set it and forget it” chore but forgetting for too long can have consequences for your clothing. Leaving a load in the washing machine will eventually cause it to smell or even accumulate mold! As for the dryer, though mold isn’t an issue, the longer clothes are left, the wrinklier they’ll be when you finally take them out.

Whether laundry is a quick and easy chore or a necessary evil is still up for debate. But no matter your opinion on it, it’s important to do it right, for the sake of your favorite jeans, best work shirt, that perfectly worn-in sweater, and the rest of your wardrobe! Next time it’s laundry day, be sure to avoid these  common laundry mistakes.”

How many of the mistakes are you guilty of?   I’m guilty of at least half of them.- Incorrectly Preparing Clothes, Over Drying Your Clothes,  Incorrectly Sorting,  and Leaving Your Clothes in the Machines.

Farm RX Trial Kit

As Promised, My Review of our New Vegan Skin Care. I took the opportunity to Try our Newest skin care line with a 2 week trial kit, and I am SO impressed.

The Vegan Skin Care Collection, Farm Rx is created with natural plant-based ingredients for healthy skin. it utilizes an innovative Slow Herb Complex™, that has a blend of botanicals. Botanicals (plants) that thrive in dry conditions and are then slowly cold-brewed to extract antioxidants for peak efficacy. In addition to using Over 85 % Overall Natural Ingredients, it uses Safe synthetic ingredients to preserve the formulas. (Without those the skin creams and serums would mold and/or grow bacteria)

I was really interested in trying the Bakuchiol. WHY? I really like (Love) the line & wrinkle reducing properties of Retinol, but NOT the photosensitivity Retinol can cause. I am prone to sunburn already, and Retinol can increase my chances of getting sunburned.

What you get in the Farm Rx Trial Kit?

A 2 week (or longer) supply of the 4 Newest Vegan Skin Care Products  *Farm Rx Super Greens Cooling Gel, .33 fl. oz.
* Farm Rx Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream, .33 fl. oz.
*Farm Rx Bakuchiol Serum, .17 fl. oz.
* Farm Rx Bakuchiol Eye Cream, .17 fl. oz

During my 2 week trial, I used the Bakuchiol Serum, then the Bakuchiol Eye Cream, then the Super Greens Cooling Gel, and Finished with the Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream. I followed the routine both morning and night. And my results impressed Even me.

Before on the Left — and — 15 Days Later on the Right.

Over the 15 day trial, I noticed improvements in my skin daily. The first thing I noticed was the decrease in the Fine Lines above my mouth, That was followed by a decrease in the dark circles under my eyes. The Final thing that caught my eye was the decrease in lines at the corners of my eyes. Over the 2 weeks, another thing I noticed, was that my skin felt smoother when I touched it, even in the morning when I woke up. It also seemed like my makeup went on smoother.

Bottom Line, I am going to order the full size of the Farm Rx products. The Bakuchiol actually worked better than the Retinol Line Eraser that I’ve depended on for quite some time. (Well After I Finish the skin care line I was using before. I am also interested in what will happen if I stop using the Farm Rx for a couple weeks, and will let you know) In the mean time if you want to give it a try and let me know what your results are you can get it direct or message me and I’ll get it in my next order.

Campaign 7 is Live

I’m impressed with our new addition, FarmRx – A Vegan Skin Care Line.  Making its appearance in Campaign 7.  

I’ll be sharing more this week about Vegan Skin Care in Blog Posts, and share my personal experience, complete with before and after pictures.

And, I’m continuing to work on the website beautyandbluejeans.com,.  With so many changes and challenges in social media (facebook, instagram, etc…) I’ve been working harder on the website to ensure I get information to you.  

As Always, contact me if you have any questions..

Basic Hair Care

With the discontinuation of some (most) of the Advanced Techniques hair care, many are asking me what we still have available for your Hair Care

We actually have several options.  The CHI  hair care shampoo and conditioner lineup was created exclusively for Avon with our partnership with CHI, a professional Salon hair care company.  Which means these two products are only available from Avon.  These happen to be my personal favorites.

Another option is our Elastine Branded products.  Under the Elastine umbrella, we have many options.  Our Botanicals shampoo and conditioners have been created from Natural plant-derived ingredients. We have 3 formulas available, moisturizing, volumizing and anti frizz. These are our lowest prices options, at under $5.

Also under the Elastine umbrella is our PropoliThera Shampoo and Conditioners, and even some styling products.  These are all created with a Beeswax, honey and royal jelly (what bees eat) blend that supplies vitamins and amino acids. These Include  a volumizing and a damage repair shampoo and conditioner. These are mid priced, but the bottles are larger making them a better overall value.

We have just recently introduced the HempharmX shampoo and conditioner.  It’s created from hemp oil, which contains omegas that are know to help moisturize and repair damaged hair.  These are among our higher priced shampoos and conditioners, but in a much larger bottle.

And for those with thinning hair, were offer Dr. Groot a shampoo designed to help restore your scalp and hair follicles resulting in thicker hair.

Campaign 6 is live!

I’m so excited about the newest addition to our portfolio in Campaign 6 .  

Our popular belif lineup celebrates 1 year with Avon.  And did you know, even though you can find belif at other stores (such as “Sephora”) you can only get the special pricing through an AVON REPRESENTATIVE.  It’s just one more way, we are saving you money.

… I’m so super excited about the progress on

www.beautyandbluejeans.com. I’ve been updating, organizing products, and blog posts from the past couple years.  All in an effort to make it easier for you to find what your looking for.

AND.. (as if this message isn’t long enough already)…..

What I’ve Changed Since Wearing a Face Mask

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve been having problems with my makeup, especially my eye makeup, smearing when my glasses steam up from my mask. Yes, I’ve tried several tricks to keep my glasses from steaming up, but none really worked that great. So I started trying different makeup techniques to see if that would help, and this is what I came up with.

I First Start with a Primer, the Magix Prime Face Perfector was just what I was looking for. And, If you know me well, the added benefit of the SPF 20 was right up my alley. The Face Perfector helps to visibly minimize pores and my fine experience lines (as I like to call them). It just seems to blurr them away. I also noticed that it helps my pores tighten up, especially around my nose, due to the Rose Extract. My face also feels silky smooth with the added moisturizing benefits of Fleece Flower Extract.

I Follow the Primer with a Tinted Moisturizer, Yes you read that right, a Tinted Moisturizer. Never thought you’d hear me say that, but I like the lightweight feel, it’s sheer and I can build, or add more if I need more coverage. With a face mask on, the Tinted Moisturizer doesn’t feel as heavy as a thicker foundation did. I also like the fact that it helps keep my skin hydrated with Vitamin E and B5. Plus, it’s Infused with passion fruit, Chia seed and Sunflower Seed.

I finish up with a Powder. But not just any powder. I’ve shied away from powders the last several years, because they just seem to settle in lines & wrinkles, making them worse. But, the Magix Dust Finishing Powder doesn’t seem to do that. It’s a pure mineral powder with ultrafine minerals and gems – tourmaline, powder ruby and rose quartz. It also has green tea extract to smooth skin and enhance my natural complexion. And the fact it’s 100% naturally derived was a plus in my book.

With the latest information that we may be wearing face masks for the foreseeable future, Changing up my makeup seemed like a necessary evil. I mean, when you have something you like, it’s really hard to give it up. Going lighter with foundation, starting with a primer and finding a powder that didn’t enhance my “experience” lines has been a Change for the better.
