Aquation Skincare Delivers All Day Moisture

This post is powered by BrandBacker, but all opinions are 100% my own.

We all want hydrated skin. Now it is as easy as a simple Aquation. Available exclusively at Walmart stores, Aquation Skincare is powered by Hydro Balance. It is enriched with ceramides and hyaluronic acid, as well as restores and fortifies your skin’s natural water balance for hydrated, healthy skin.

Just as we need plenty of water, healthy foods, and plenty of sleep to feel our best - these same habits are essential for great skin. If you wake up feeling dull and lackluster, chances are you need a boost. It can be hard to find skincare that protects, restores, and fortifies. You also want that added benefit of moisture you can feel. Aquation is the perfect balance between gentle cleansing and hydration. 

Gently cleanse away dirt, oil, and makeup while also infusing moisture and revealing fresh skin. Aquation Gentle Moisturizing Cleanser won’t over dry or strip your skin, and you can use it on both your face and body! Your skin feels hydrated and soft after use. It is fragrance free, so practically anyone can use it. Start by wetting your skin with lukewarm water. Then gently massage cleanser into skin. Finally, rinse and pat dry.

Aquation Moisturizing Cream is an ultra rich formula that penetrates deeply for 24 hour hydration. It helps to relieve dryness, soften skin, and sooth the itch and irritation associated with moisture loss. It is quick absorbing, non greasy, fragrance free, and non-comedogenic. Just apply liberally as often as needed or as directed by a physician. I love using this on my legs, feet, and heels!

Looking for something a little lighter? Replenish moisture daily with Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This lightweight lotion is also quick absorbing and provides all day hydration. It has the same benefits as Aquation Moisturizing Cream, it is just in lotion form. I like using this formula after showering.

One of my favorite features is the easy to use pumps. These are large bottles and jars, so I love the pump. So easy to place in your shower or other convenient space. 100% of women in clinical trials saw more hydrated skin, even up to 24 hours. 93% experienced instant hydration, and 93% found it non-irritating. Aquation delivers clinically proven results you can see, and moisture balance technology you can count on. It's the perfect Aquation for hydrated + healthy skin.

Dry Cleaning vs. Dryel | How Much Can You Save?

I first told you about Dryel back in March. It can keep your clothes looking newer for longer with no shrinking, no fading, no stretching, and no trips to the dry cleaner! I am back to share how much you can save by using Dryel at home. 

Let's face it. There are some things you just can't throw into the washer. Most coats for example, have a care tag that reads dry clean only. Or is it? Dryel is an at-home dry cleaning process that is easy to use. You can quickly refresh and renew your clothes just by using Dryel and a dryer. Dryel safely and thoroughly cleans clothes, protects colors and preserves shapes without any harsh chemicals. The alternative? Take it to the dry cleaners.

Dry cleaning is expensive. You have to pay per garment. Garments range from a few dollars each to a much as $15 or more, which is what you can expect to pay to dry clean a coat. No to mention you have to have the gas money to drive to and from the dry cleaners. What a waste of time and money.

Now the cost of using Dryel. You will need a Dryel Starter Kit which includes 4 Ultra Cleaning Cloths, 1 Booster Spray and 1 Fabric Protection Bag. You will use one cleaning cloth per load. However, you can add up to five garments into one load! Once you have the kit, you will just purchase refills. So in the end, it could cost you as little as 25¢ per garment.

You can save even more money by stopping stains before they set in. We are not always home when stains happen. In fact, most of the time we are out! Just carry the new Dryel On-the-Go Stain Remover with you. They work great on wools, silks, rayons, linens, cottons, and other special care fabrics. They're even safe on dry clean-only clothes, delicates, and hand washables. I love the soft touch applicator! This goes with me everywhere.

See how much you can save? Dryel is more convenient and less costly than a trip to the dry cleaners! Dryel can clean your dry clean only and special care clothing for as little as 25¢ per garment. Plus it avoids the harsh chemicals of the dry cleaners. No need for special expensive machines, Dryel works right in your own dryer.

Heal Dry Lips with Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Rite Aid.

Has the summer sun wreaked havoc on your lips? I feel like a lot of lip balms just mask the issue. However, Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins are clinically proven to help heal dry lips. Yes that is right, heal. The non-sticky formulas of Vaseline tins are invitingly soft and melt onto lips. The non-sticky, non-greasy formula spreads on smoothly and gives lips a natural, glossy shine. They are the perfect choice year round to keep your lips soft and hydrated.

The lip tins are so cute! The premium steel tin fits neatly in your pocket or purse, so you can hydrate on-the-go. I like to leave them all over the house in addition to my purse, my tote bag, and my pocket. The color of the tin depends on the formula you choose. There are four formulas to choose from: Original, Cocoa Butter, Aloe, and Rosy Lips.

The original formula is an everyday essential for healthy-looking lips. It is made with 100% pure Vaseline Jelly, just like all Vaseline lip products. Vaseline Jelly is the original wonder jelly that has been helping to heal dry skin since 1870, and now you can get all its benefits in a product exclusively designed for lips.

The Vaseline cocoa butter lip balm is infused with rich cocoa butter. It glides onto lips to help leave them smooth and glossy. The non-sticky formula has an appealing cocoa and vanilla scent.

The Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe Tin is made with aloe vera, known to help calm and soothe irritated skin. With its fresh fragrance, Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe delights your senses and helps leave a natural shine on your lips.

Finally, my favorite, rosy lips. Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips helps moisturize, while also bringing out the natural rosy tones of our lips. This tinted lip moisturizer helps provide a glossy look with a hint of pink. The scent of this one is great. It has elements of rose, vanilla, and red berry.

As you can see, the consistency is slightly thick. So it will really get into those dry areas and begin the healing. You can also see the slight tint of the rosy lips tin. Its just the slightest perfect pink. Love this one.

Remember, the top, protective layer of skin on your lips is thinner than on the rest of your body, so it needs a moisturizing lip balm that doesn’t just sit on the surface. A lip moisturizer like a Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin actually penetrates the skin on lips. These formulas help support the natural recovery of your dry lips by locking in moisture.

The elements can be hard on your lips, so it’s essential to keep them moisturized. Vaseline Lip Therapy Original Tins are great for safeguarding against dryness caused by weather, so you can be confident that your lips are ready to face the outdoors. These pocket-sized petroleum jelly lip balms can be carried easily, so you can use it whenever your lips feel dry. Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins are available at your local Rite Aid.

Rebel Fall 2016 Collection from China Glaze

It's official! The 90s are back! So grab your choker and prepare to Rage Against the Manicure. Nearly 25 years after grunge exploded onto the music and fashion scene with names like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Courtney Love, comes Rebel, a new collection from China Glaze that brings you the quintessential juxtaposition of the 90s. 

Rebel is a 12 piece collection that includes flirty and feminine pinks and pearls alongside gritty, deep purples, blues and grays, reminiscent of a flirty baby doll dress paired with a well-worn, vintage leather jacket and combat boots with fishnet tights, or ravaged jeans, a flannel and Mary Janes. The 90s attitude was to wear what you want and forget the rest. Pink isn’t just for girls and combat boots aren’t just for boys, so this fall live loud, mix it up and set your inner Rebel free.

Holo At Ya Girl! | green-gold holographic glitter
Jagged Little Teal | vampy teal crème 
Combat Blue-ts | bad ass matte blue 
Blue-Ya! | sapphire blue shimmer 
Teen Spirit | deep inky blue-black with metallic flecks
Purple Fiction | royal metallic plum

Y’all Ready for This? | red shimmer 
Heroine Chic | sultry chocolate crème with flecks of red shimmer 
Dope Taupe | almond taupe crème 
Fresh Princess | baby doll dress pink crème 
Pearl Jammin’ | chic gray opalescent
Don’t Mesh with Me | lavender shimmer

What do you think of the Rebel Collection? The shades and especially the names take me back. I was in high school and college during the 90s, so it was a very formative part of my life. I was baby doll grungy and into indie alternative, so this collection really resonates with me! My favorites are the gorgeous matte blue satin (Combat Blue-ts) and the metallic inky blue-black (Teen Spirit).
