Get your skin in tip-top summer shape with Bioelements, one of my favorite skincare lines. (1) blog follower will be randomly chosen to win a Bioelements skincare wardrobe worth $250. The lucky winner will speak one-on-one with a Bioelements Esthetician about his/her skintype, skincare concerns and select their ideal skincare wardrobe.

To kick things off, let me share my favorite beauty tip of the moment. I've been looking for ways to add volume to my thin brows so a friend recently shared her brow-perfecting secret: apply brow powder in 2 different natural shades to add dimensions and natural bulk to brows. Now I know why many brow enhancers often come in 2 complimentary shades (thanks, Susan!).

Hi! I follow your blog and a super stoked about this giveaway!! I am keeping my fingers AND toes crossed that I win! :)

My beauty secret(s), although it is a bit cliche, is: drink a gallon of water each day! I also love to exfoliate with sugar and Bragg's (Mother) Apple Cider Vinegar. These two things, coupled with a healthy diet, keeps my skin glowing year round!

Does it count if I'll become a US resident starting from the end of June?

Well, in any case, I'm still going to share my favorite beauty secret I'm using as of late. To perk your skin up on those days when you wish you could swap skins with someone, dab some honey all over and keep it on for as long as you want and then wash off with lukewarm water. Somehow it always helps my skin to look less stressed and irritated than it is! xxx

Hi ladies,

Great tips, thank you so much for sharing! I love drinking apple cider vinegar spiked water :D

Rocaille,
Oh goodie, you're moving to the U.S.! How exciting!! I'm going to check with my contact about end of June, but if you have an U.S. address that you can use (friends, family, etc), it would work too :D Let me know if you have that set-up, thanks!

Hi Farmgirl!

This is my first comment, though I've been following your blog for a while. I just couldn't resist the opportunity of increasing my chances for the give-away. :-)

My beauty secret isn't much of a secret; it's my favorite moisturizer, Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. I have acne-prone combination skin and this provides a nice moisture balance and helps with the break-outs.

Hi Tabatha!

Thank you for sharing your favorite moisturizer :D I'm sure many with the same skintype would appreciate the heads-up!

I've been following for awhile, though this is my first comment. I could really use the skincare makeover, 30 with acne is not what I signed up for!

My beauty secret is hair related:
Don't wash it too often! I shampoo my long hair about once a week. I've always had healthy hair this way, plus you save on shampoo and conditioner use, plus shorter showers means less water waste. If you're oily scalped, there's great dry shampoos out there that can help squeeze a few more days between shampooings.

Thanks!

Rocaille said...

Thanks for replying, sweetie, yes I do have a US address :) Yipee! xxx

Good morning! I would love to try out Bioelements - thanks for introducing me to this line through your fantastic blog!

My favorite beauty secret (not sure how secret it is anymore) is the asprin mask! All you do is crush 3-5 uncoated asprin , then combine with water and pure honey (which is very anti-bacterial) and apply. This works best for me as a spot treatment instead of a traditional mask, and I've also heard of people dissolving asprin in water to use as a toner. You can't really mess the recipe up, which is the best part - so play around with it!

The treatment works because asprin contails salicylic acid (common in acne treatments). If you tend to be oily, asprin + water + honey works well. If salicylic acid tends to dry you out, try adding jojoba oil.

My beauty secret is exfoliate, exfoliate. It truly does make a huge difference in your skin, especially the older you get. I absolutely love Bioelements what a giveaway. I am also a follower.

Brilliant Farmgirl's Beauty Secrets™ said...

Wow, thanks ladies for all your inputs! These are great tips :D

I love your blog, and would love to share a few tips!

I mix honey and organic plain yogurt to calm my skin down. I also use green tea and tea tree oil as toner.

Pure coconut oil is perfect for making summer legs shiny and sexy! Also great as a deep conditioner for hair pre-shampooing.

I've heard great things about bioelements and would love to try it out!

My beauty/skin tip - I was terrible about washing my face every evening until a few years ago when I noticed crows feet around my eyes. I recently started using Source naturals Skin Eternal Hyaluronic Serum before bed and when I get up (after washing my face!!) I've noticed that the crows feet are barely noticeable and my pores are not nearly as noticeable.

I've been a follower of your blog for a while now, I love it :-)!!!

My latest beauty secret is raw organic manuka honey. Not only is delicious and good for you but it's also a great mask, cleanser and/or spot treatment.

I've never tried their products before.

My beauty tip:
Get layers! You can never go wrong with layering your hair a bit :)
It takes a bit of weight off your shoulders ;)
