Out of This World Glow: I Dew Care Sugar Kitten and Space Kitten Peel-Off Masks

Hey beauty lovers, we have a question for you. What is your favorite beauty product? We don’t mean brand, we mean actual products. Is it something in the makeup, skincare, or haircare category. For us, it’s facial masks of all kinds. We love how clean, refreshed, and youthful our skin looks and feels after we treat ourselves to a mask. We love the way they purge the unwanted things that can leave your skin dull and unhealthy. Who can say no to glowing skin? We were recently introduced to the I Dew Care Sugar Kitten and Space Kitten Peel-Off Masks, and boy are we having fun with them.

Alberto VO5 Introduces Innovative Beauty Oil for Hair and Body

We were going to save this product for a spring skin renewal post but because this winter has been especially harsh on our skin, we needed to up the moisturizing ante. While we’re huge fans of thick body cremes and body butters, we found that devastating temperatures and frigid air still left our skin feeling and looking dry, flaky, and thirsty, so we decided to try the Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow, & Go Beauty Oil a bit early.
VO5-Shine-Glow-Go-Beauty-Oil-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

The Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil is a light, natural oil blend for BOTH hair and body that quickly helps replenish dry hair and skin. This blend of five essential vitamins (E, H, C, B5, and B3), and oils (Argan, macadamia, sunflower, Shea, Grapeseed, and coconut natural oils) helps nourish, moisturize and hydrate your hair and skin without clogging your pores, or stripping your skin of its natural oils. We love this fast-absorbing, after-shower spray for so many reasons. Unlike the body butters, which were no match for this winter, we only had to use VO5 Shine, Glow & Go once, for all day soft, moisturized skin. It’s light, sophisticated fragrance was instantly absorbed into our skin, without leaving any greasy residue. It was also the perfect, lightweight conditioner we needed to protect our hair from the cold (many people forget that like your skin, your hair needs protection from harsh elements as well). As you can see by the half-filled bottle, we’ve been using it with lots of vigor…..we may be a bit addicted to it.

This amazing conditioning oil contains NO mineral oils, parabens or dyes, and is a steal at under $5.00 per bottle (thank goodness because we’ll need a refill soon, especially if winter continues the way it has). We recommend stocking up on this innovative beauty oil at Walgreens, Kroger, Ralph’s, HEB, Publix, Winn-Dixie, Bi-Lo, Hannaford, Giant Eagle and many more. Visit www.vo5haircare.com to learn more.
