Get to Know the 3 P's of Self-Tanning

Have you heard of the 3 P’s of Self Tanners? Yup, it’s a thing, well at least I’m making it a thing right now, so learn more about each below. And while the formulas are getting better these days, I really wish there was more progress when it came to that darn tanner smell! Yes, some are able to mask it better than others but it's still there. 

In the meantime, let's check out the 3 P's!

Skinny-Tan-Tan-&-Tone-Kit

Primed - SKINNY TAN Tan & Tone Kit ($54.99 @ skinnytan.com) – if you are looking for the whole kit and caboodle, this might be your answer. This one includes an oil-free skin exfoliator, Pre-Tan Primer, so you get the smoothest application you can. And the 7-Day Tanner gives skin an instant bronze loo that develops into a tan shade in a few hours and sticks around for up to 7 days. And make sure you give a healthy helping of this on your backside as they didn’t put the name Skinny in the name for nothing.

This Is How I’m Enjoying #SoftFeetAllSummer #ad

The drugstore has to be one of my favorite places to visit. I mean, it has all kinds of cool stuff to look at and browse through. So when I was asked by Amopé® to pick up their Pedi Perfect™ Electoric Foot & Nail File at Walgreens for this campaign, I admit, I got a little excited! I blocked out 1 hour of the afternoon so I would have time to leisurely look around and put on my most comfortable shoes to do so. Yes, it’s a little adventure for me!. And I had a $15 off coupon for the device that you too can pick up @ coupon.com/amopé.

Now I can never have enough foot products on hand and I love trying new ones like this Pedi Perfect. I absolutely abhor dry cracked heels so I do whatever I can so that dry skin doesn’t appear on mine.

This useful tool has an ergonomically shaped spinning head to easily remove callused skin on the feet – use a course head for regular skin or choose the extra course head (shown here) for hard skin. Yup, I chose the one for hard skin!

The motorized wheel has finely ground Diamond crystals for maximum and smooth exfoliation. And the wheel moves at a nice speed, not too slow like some I’ve used. As far as the texture of the wheel Diamonds? Think of them like a really course nail file surface! And this really smooths out my heels sooo  nicely.

So bellying up to the payment counter, I presented my $15 off coupon I mentioned above andsince the Amopé was on sale already for $36.99 (down from the regular price of $49.99), I picked it up for $21.99 + tax! Now how’s that for a total bargain? I love getting a great deal on something, don’t you? Let me know if you end up using the coupon to get your own Pedi Perfect from Amopé.

Top 4 Favorite Beauty Gadgets

3-Favorite-Beauty-Gadgets


1. AMOPÉ Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File ($39.99 @ walgreens.com, ulta.com) – yucked-up feet are not sexy no matter what season it is, and believe me, we Los Angeleans wear sandals year ‘round so the bottoms (of our feet) have to look tops at all times. This one keeps feet smooth and callus-free without a lot of effort, thankfully.  

2. HARRY JOSH Pro Dryer 2000 ($300 @ dermstore.com) – I don’t really think of a hair dryer as a gadget, per say, but it does fall into this category because it’s electronic! Since my beloved T3 died late last year I’ve been on the hunt for its replacement and I think this is it. It’s the best way for the average person to get a good blowout. Besides the comfortable weight and quick drying time, the cool down button on this actually means c-o-o-l d-o-w-n. I've never met a cool down button that does much but this one totally does. 

3. CLARISONIC Mia Fit ($189 @ ulta.com) – still not convinced that these cleansing brushes really help the skin? Now I already have a Clarisonic and didn’t think I needed this one until I used it. The compact shape of this is, dare I say, is better than the original. It just fits better in my right hand. This has two speeds – a delicate and power and takes care of skin like all of them do. Choose from Blue, Pink and White.

4. COLOR ME Automatic Foundation Applicator Kit ($54 @ ulta.com) – this little battery-operated device is the latest to come along and to help apply your foundation flawlessly using 250 sonic taps per second! And this kit comes with a sponge to apply powder (both can be used for liquids) and a protective cover to keep it clean between uses.
