Mini Facial Kit

My Lovely Friend, Shayla invited me to give R+F mini facial a try. I'm all about trying out new facial products. I've seen her posts for a while now and have a few friends who are also consultants. She's the first to offer up this mini facial to me. So I said I would love to give it a try and write a review on these products. I want my followers to find out about this stuff too! I'm sure you've seen your friends posting on social media about but no one has offered you a mini facial kit to try it out.

If you are like me, you look at the price tag and look the other way. I'm all about supporting my friends and their businesses, but the price tag turned me away. (Remember, I'm an at home mom during the day and coach cheerleading in the evening. We live on a 1 adult income and it's not mine!) So don't take it personal and don't freak out when I say pricey. I have 2 kids (3 including the hubby) and 2 cats and we live on ONE income. So my pricey maybe different than your pricey! Now don't FREAK OUT! Don't judge a book by it's cover! Open the book and read the inside first.

Read my whole blog before you judge!

I'm also a Proactiv user and have been for years and years. I love Proactiv and that is made my the same company. I've always been happy with that. I love the 3 step system. Get it done in the morning and I'm set for the day. (yes, I know you are suppose to use it twice a day, but it works just fine using it once a day) So I've seen the posts and I've checked out the prices, I can't see myself spending that kind of money on something I don't know if it's really going to work or not. I'm a cheapy kind of person. Lets be honest! I'm a try it before you buy it kind of person!

However, I'm not in my teens and I'm not in my 20s anymore. I'm in my 30's! Yes, I'll be 36 next month. I'm pushing that 40 mark and it's coming on quickly. I need something that is going to work with my skin, the skin of a 30 something. I'm not a young adult anymore! I've got those fine line and wrinkles going on and I'm not happy. I've even been pulling those stray gray/white hairs out. I'm not ready to get old. I want to have young youthful skin and I want to look it too! So here is my mini facial. Keep reading to find out more!

Excuse my crazy hair. I took a lovely bath before my mini facial. The steam made my hair a bit crazy.

Step One - Micro-Dermabrasion paste

Step One Complete - My face feels nice and clean! A deep clean is a must!

Step 2 - Night Renewing Serum (I haven't even used it yet and my face is looking good)

Step 3 - REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum

Step 4 - The Eyes! YES! I need this!
(I've got on my Sparkly Slytherin shirt on that I made)

All done I'm looking good now! This is my happy face! No more dull, no life skin!

Before and After

WOW! is all I can say right now! My face feels like silk and it is already looking way better! I'm quite impressed and a total believer that this works! My skin and lips look good and my eyes don't look as tired and thats off just ONE mini facial! Say WHAT!

Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking...this isn't real or I used photoshop or whatever. Yes, I love me some photoshop for editing my photography photos, but this is real ladies and gents! These are real results with real products. No joking! I'm just as surprised as you! I can't even imagine what my skin will look like when I use the whole system for a month, at which I will do a review on!

I am in love and I'm super happy with the results! You can get these too!

Now back to the price tag thing I spoke about earlier. Is it worth the money! You can bet your bottom dollar it is and I'll be spending it too! I want to have youthful skin. Like I said before, I want to try it before I buy it. Specially when it's pricey. Don't look at the price, look at the results! It's worth investing in yourself and your skin! Spend the money and love your skin! When you buy cheap products, you get little or no results. It's worth the investment! I'm going to invest in myself and my skin! Are you?!

I'm sure if you are a follower of mine, you know that I have tried all kinds of skin products being a product reviewer. I have never had a product give me a result like this in just one use. NEVER! It usually takes a few weeks to even seen a little something and sometimes, I don't see any results at all. It's disappointing when you spend all that time trying out a product and not seeing any results or it literally take a month to see results. I am impatient! I want results now!

It doesn't matter how old you are, you really should be thinking about skin care in your teens. Don't wait until you start seeing those pesky crows feet and fine lines. Start as early as possible to prolong them. The sooner you start taking care of your skin, the longer it takes for those darn lines to start appearing. Don't think that age is something you need to wait around for to take care of your skin. Do it now! If I had known how important skin care was in my early 20s, I would have started then. Instead, I'm in my mid-30s talking about skin care and starting early!

Get up with Shayla and she'll help you get the right system for your skin type. Not all skin is created equally! Thats why Shayla is your skin professional and will help you get what you need. Spend the money and your skin will love you in return. After all, this is the only skin we get on this earth and we need to take really good care of it. Hit my girl up and she'll help you out! 

Take Care of Your Skin NOW!

Thank you so much Shayla for allowing me to review your products and write my blog! You've won me over and I'm sold! This is a must have for me and my skin!

R+F offers many products! You can use a whole system or pick and choose! Shayla will help you come up with the best items for your daily routine that you will actually use. You don't have to buy a whole system if you know you aren't going to use it all. You get what you want and use what you want!

Now get off my blog and find Shayla! Talk to her and get to know her and she'll do that same! Now you've got your consultant! Use her beautiful self to help you before even more beautiful than you already are!

I love this toner. I always use a gentle face scrub, then a toner, and then a moisturizer daily. This toner is lovely. It smells good and makes my skin feel so soft. I like that it doesn't dry out my skin. With the winter months approaching quickly, I need a toner that will keep my face from drying out. This is it.

Do you use a toner? I know I do! If you don't, you really should consider it. I'm 35 and I have to take care of my skin. I've got those fine lines going on. I want to prevent wrinkles for as long as possible! Love your skin!

I have been using instanatural products for about 2 years now and I'm a fan. Their product work and make your skin feel amazing! When your skin looks good, you feel good and you want to take those selfies with your kids!

My Review:
This is great! I can't stand sloppy posture. My daughter is 16 years old and has horrible posture. I am constantly telling her to stand up straight. This posture corrector is great! It allows her to stand tall and look lovely! It's really easy to put on and very comfortable.

Growing up, my dad was a US Marine and has perfect posture. At dinner, every night, he would walk past us kids and anyone who slouched, he would pull our shoulders back. Ever since, I've made sure that I stand with correct posture. Sure, I slouch every now and then, but having correct posture takes the strain off my lower back.

I've always felt that when you stand tall, you look more confident! I hate when I see models in magazine who are slouchers and have terrible posture. I just want to pull their shoulders back.

I coach tumbling for cheerleader. One of my cheerleaders has horrible posture. She looks so insecure. I constantly tell her to stand tall, shoulders back. Posture really matters. When she is tumbling with good posture, she does great. When she has poor posture, her tumbling suffers.

Overall, this is a must have for everyone! Having good posture will make you look better and you'll be more confident!

This waist trainer is really comfortable and easy to put on. I like that it's flexable and not stiff. I have tried other waist trainers and they are usually really stiff and not to comfortable. I was impressed how comfortable it was. I didn't feel like I was being squeezed to death. It looks nice under my clothes and you can't even tell that I'm wearing it. I posted this photo of my daughter and I at her football game. You can't even tell that I have a waist trainer on! I love it!

  • Vitamin E delivers powerful antioxidant benefits

My Review:
I love love love instanatural. They have been one of my favorite companies for the past few years. They really do offer amazing products. Check them out!

Ok, I just had to put that out there. So onward to my review. This cellulite cream is great. You do need to be strict with yourself because it needs to be applied twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. Sometimes I'll forget to do the morning one, but do manage to remember to do it in the evening since it's on my bookself next to my bed. I'm horrible about keeping up with things. BUT if you want results, you'll get it done!

After using this cream for the past 2 weeks, I love that I am starting to see less appearance of dimpling on my thighs and booty. I'm all about posting photos, but this is just something I'm not going to post photos for. I hope you all can understand.

Yes, it works great and has a nice floral scents that is very light. I'm not a floral kind of person. I like fruits, but this is light enough that I will actually use. Some of the creams smell horrible! I can't use them constantly when they smell bad. A little bit goes a long way! You can't need a lot to cover your thighs and booty.

Overall, yes it really works. It works even better when you have a work out routine and are on a healthy diet. You can see results quicker and lasting results. This is not a quick fix so you can wear that bikini. It will help you get the results to get that bikini, but you also have to do the work! Now go out and get some!

My Review:
I really love this case. I had a lifeproof case prior to using this one. Lifeproof just isn't what it use to be and their cases don't hold up. This case comes with everything you need. Works great and fits perfectly on my phone with no problems. It snaps on, but you do have to use some pressure to press it down firmly. My favorite part of the phone is the turn dial. It switches the ringer on and off so easily. The lifeproof case never catches and so I can never turn off my ringer.

Anywho, this is a really great case and is comparable to the name brand Lifeproof case and a fraction of the price. I definitely would recommend this to others and have! My sister, daughter, and mother all use this brand!

My Review:
I coach tumbling and competitive cheerleading. I do a lot of heavy spotting for the kids. Even when we are stunting, I'll do some work and step in to teach better. My shoulders and knees take a beating. I also drive 1 1/2 hrs to work and home. It has been so nice having a foam roller when I get home. I am stiff and knee to work it out so that I can sleep. If I don't, I wake up in the middle of the night because of my shoulders.

The best roll out is after I have my yoga class. I'm all stretched out and then use the roller. It helps so much with my shoulder. You have no idea.

If you have never used a foam roller, I highly recommend it. Before I injured my knee, I was running 3-4 times a week. I borrowed a foam roller from a friend because she said it was the best thing for after runs! YES, it is! I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review this one.

It does take some getting use to. You are rolling on a roller that has bumps and dips on it and at first, it doesn't feel that great or that it's working. Keep at it, it is working and you are working that deep tissue! Working my legs really helps my knees! Working my whole back helps with the neck and shoulders. It's awesome!

Connect with them!

About the Product:
  • Multiplication practice becomes cheesy and fun with this amazing fun for kids of all ages. Great tool to master multiplication tables

  • Builds 4 Key Life skills - Communication competence , Memorization , Hand eye coordination
  • Perfect gift for age 7+ and up. Builds skills that last a life time.
  • Game contains 8 types of cheese coins, play bags, bins, rule book and flicker

Inside the Box

My 8 year old son, My 16 year old daughter, and Myself had a blast!

My Review:
This game was a lot of fun! Be sure to read the instructions so that you understand how to play! All the disks are divided up evenly. You place them all inside your bag. No peaking! Everyone spins the spinner to see who goes first. The first person spins the spinner. It lands on 8. So you pull a number out of your bag. Lets say 81. 8 x ? = 81? Nothing, so you toss that disk into the picnic basket in the middle. Then it's the next persons turn. Who ever the first person to get the correct number wins all the disks in the basket. There are fun disks also that are special! You'll have to play the game to find out.

My son loves math and this game is perfect for him. We have played several time since we got it. You can use this as multiplication and division. Instead of 8x?=81, you can say how many times does 8 go into 81? My son is learning division because he's known his multiplication number since Kindergarten. So we are working at home on division since he won't learn that until halfway through the school year.

Overall, this game is awesome and if your child needs help with math, this game is perfect. My daughter tutors my nephew who is also 8 years and he loves to play. He struggles in math and this game has really helped him learn!

Get this game for your child. Also, check out their other games! They have a lot of learning games!
