The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of the Secret Fresh Collection, Fade-Resistant Scent Technology, and Secret Fresh Scents Deodorant

One of the most important things that an Everyday Starlet can do is find a signature scent.  One that defines your personality and personal style.  It can be a long and time consuming process.  However, did you know that your nose can grow accustomed to your favorite scents?  Whether it be your signature perfume, your favorite scented candle, or even your deodorant…

The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

 

Secret has decided to take on nose blindness head on.  After extensive research, they have discovered that 70% of women switch deodorants because they believe they are not as effective because they don’t smell them as well as they did when they started using them. 

That’s why Secret has launched its Fresh Collection with Fade Resistant Scent Technology, to combat nose-blindness and they are designed to keep you fresh for up to 48 hours. The sweat-activated technology is meant to capture odor and release fragrance. Because you work hard, your deodorant should too!

The new Secret Fresh Collection includes scents in both Clear Gel and Invisible Solid forms – with a brand new Cool Waterlily fragrance designed to evoke a floral spa-like feeling… so there is bound to be a signature scent that fits your personality. 

.. and because a Starlet’s life is not always glitz & glamour, I have 4 ways to de stress after a difficult day.   

Treat yourself

Take a shower

I love showering at the end of the day.  It really washes my stress away.  I know some women only shave when they think someone may touch their legs, but I shave my legs for me.  Nothing feels quite as luxurious as a freshly shaven leg slipping into silk pajamas.  I have been loving the Tree Hut Bare Moisturizing Shave Oil.  It smells like a beach vacation and helps you get your legs silky smooth… I’m actually on my second bottle!

Try some Essential Oils

Scent can be so powerful.  21 Drops has a Detox Essential Oil Blend that’s a pre-blended solution with distinct essential oils that come together in organic jojoba oil to uniquely treat a particular concern or aspiration. The Detox Essential Oil Blend uses Cardamom, Geranium, Juniper, and Lavender for a relaxing and purifying combination.

How do you destress after a difficult day?

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

I’d like to introduce you to the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Pinning is Glamorous!

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Like many other people, my teen years were.. well, let’s just say awkward.  I suffered from acne, and even though I realize now that most other teens were also, at the time it felt like it was just happening to me.  While teens nowadays have more access than ever to department stores and beauty shops, back then the drugstore was the place to find your skin care.

Neutrogena has always been a skin care brand name that I associate with being a big help during my acne years. 

But now I’m getting older and my skin concerns are different.  Okay, I do still get acne, but I also want my skin to stay firm and I want to prevent those dreaded wrinkles. 

Enter a new favorite from a trusted friend….

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Neutrogena has just introduced their Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream.  With it’s sleek packaging, this retinol product is designed to leave skin fresh, nourished, and plumped. 

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Neutrogena designed this cream for people of all skin types, even those who have never used a retinol before. 

The Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream is designed so that you will see results in as little as one week.  So you’ll be feeling like a teenage again in no time…. hopefully without the awkwardness!

Belle De Jour Inspired Makeup Look

I’ve been watching some classic films lately to get some Starlet inspiration.  I watched the classic French film, Belle De Jour, years ago but I decided to re-watch it with fresh eyes.  The film is a bit bizarre, but the fashion is unbelievable!  I know everyone gushes, and rightfully so, over Catherine Deneuve.  However, I became fixated on French actress Maria Latour.  With her big hair, dramatic winged liner, and sexy trench coat, she reminded me of a red headed Brigitte Bardot.  I was so inspired by her hair and makeup that I decided to created this Belle De Jour Inspired Makeup Look… just in time for Valentine’s Day!

It Cosmetics CC Cream Review

With so many new makeup products launching everyday, it can be overwhelming for any Starlet to figure out what will work for her and what won’t.  It took me a while to jump on the BB Cream bandwagon, and I’m not even fully on.  So when CC Creams started gaining popularity I was skeptical.  However, I was tempted by the hype and had to give one a try.  So I’m sharing with you my full It Cosmetics CC Cream Review…
