My Mary Kay Skin Care Favourites

I have been using Mary Kay makeup products for quite some time now and have shared some of the products that I love from the line on my blog before. From vibrant lipsticks to beautiful eye shadows, Mary Kay helps get my ready for both on air and everyday. Today though, I wanted to share a different side of Mary Kay, their skin care products. 

I have started to include quite a few Mary Kay skin products into my daily routine and I have noticed such a difference in my skin’s health and overall appearance. Wth a very busy schedule, that includes lots of travel it is sometimes hard to keep my routine consistent and my skin taken care of. However, these products are quick and easy to use. They also keep my skin moisturized, clean, and clear. Mary Kay’s skin care has become a habit for me both at home and on the road. I wanted to share with you some of their products that I absolutely love using.

My Mary Kay Favourites 

Timewise Replenishing Serum + C

This is my absolutely favourite skin product right now. I use it everyday, twice a day. The

antioxidant rich formula combined with high levels of vitamin c help keep existing collagen from breaking down. The rich botanicals also keep skin lifted and firm. Another aspect of this product that I love is that the pump bottle keeps air out, meaning the formula stays fresh. It is also clinically test for skin irritancy and allergy as well as dermatologist tested.

$65

Timewise Vitamin C Activating Squares

Use this with the Timewise Replenishing Serum for amazing results. In just a few weeks, my skin looked radiant, toned, and refreshed. The activating squares combined with the serum helps deliver put vitamin c to your skin. You mix the square with water and when it dissolves in your hand, you rub it on your face. It really leaves my skin refreshed and rejuvenated

$30

ClearProof Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask

I use this mask twice a week all over my face and neck. I leave it on for about 20 minutes and feel it cool all over. It really gives my skin a deep cleanse. the charcoal acts like a magnet to unclog my pores and absorb any excess oil. The mask is made with rosemary and peppermint and not only leaves your skin clean but awakens your senses.

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Cream

I use this eye cream twice daily and I absolutely love how it has helped the sensitive skin around my eye. It calms, cools and refreshes my eyes after a long day of work. The cream contains botanical extracts, like green tea and cucumber extract which help increase skin moisture by 130% percent. The team is also fragrance free and hypoallergenic making it perfect for sensitive skin.

Satin Lips Shea Suger Scrub

Get ready to pucker up after using this sugar scrub on your lips daily. It exfoliates, soften, smooths, and polishes lips. The scrub uses natural crystals combined with shea butter. The white tea and citrus flavours will also leave your lips shiny and fresh.

Foundation Primer SPF 15

As an on air reporter, I need to make sure my makeup goes the distance and so I use the Mary Kay Foundation Primer, which also has SPF in it (what a bonus). Besides helping extend your makeups life and add a layer of sun protection it also helps diminish the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. It provides a flawless finish time after time and helps me make sure I am game ready.

$22

Mary Kay Satin Body Revitalizing Shea Scrub

I know this isn’t technically skin care, but the satin body revitalizing shea scrub has really helped with how dry my skin gets in the winter months. The scrub is made with shea butter and sunflower oil. It is gentle enough to use daily, but exfoliates dry skin immediately. You will be left feeling moisturized and calm thanks to the scents of white than and citrus.

These are just a few of my favourite products on top of the makeup that I love to use on a daily basis. I hope these products can help you as much as they helped me.

Product Love: Smile Brilliant

 

“Smile,  it’s the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart” – Anthony J. D’Angelo 

I brush my teeth daily with whitening tooth paste, floss on the regular, and have even used white strips in the past, but nothing seems to last when it comes to keeping my teeth pearly white. Everything that I have tried so far has been an expensive temporary fix against red wine, berries, and coffee. I will sometimes look back at pictures or videos and literally cringe at how yellow my teeth look. Pretty embarrassing especially when it is part of your job to be looking your best on camera. I was on the search for a more permanent fix, and that is when I came across Smile Brilliant.

The Process 

Smile Brilliant is the #1 dentist recommended teeth whitening method. It  is basically an at home dentist. They create a customized professional whitening system. The Smile Brilliant team sends you a teeth whitening kit. You make your own teeth impressions and then mail it back to them to create the trays. By doing so, they insure that every single tooth is covered by their whitening gel. Once the trays are returned you start the whitening process. It takes on average seven to 14 days to start notice a difference in the smile.

I will be starting my teeth whitening experience and I am so excited to get my pearly whites back and wear a smile that I can truly be proud of. I will be updating this blog throughout the process but in the meantime, here is the dreaded, super close up before pics. I am pretty excited to share the progress with you over the next few weeks.

The Before

Deal of the Day 

The part I love most about Smile Brilliant is that it is affordable. While dentists can charge more than $500 for a teeth whitening service, Smile Brilliant is between $139-$169 depending on your teeth stains. But on top of that, you can get an extra 15% off by using the promo code “MIAWGORDON”. Just click on this link and getting whiter teeth my friends;

As a reporter and host I live in a world full of deadlines, travel, interviews, and on camera reporting. I am always on the go and trying to fit a million and one things into each day. I know in this day and age I am not the only one with a non-stop schedule. We live in a day and age where our lives consist of full time careers, side hustles, passion projects, families, friends, relationships, and if you’re lucky some down time. You need to be able to master the art of multitasking and balancing to have it all, am  I right ladies?

For me a typical work day will consist of catching a flight to a game, jumping off the plane, running to an interview, appearing on camera, editing the feature, a meal if I am lucky, and finally bed. I am always in search of clothes that are comfortable enough to let me take a nap on the plane, but are also stylish enough to go on air.

When I am focusing on my passion project aka my blog, I am usually out on an adventure taking pictures in the great outdoors. I need clothes and accessories  that are comfortable for a long hike, but will also look great in a picture.

Recently I partnered with MotoChic. Their clothing combines innovative design with high performance materials. They have managed to create stylish clothes and accessories and apparel that are perfect for the adventure loving, always on the go, modern day woman.

I love the original idea of MotoChic. The brand was originally inspired by the lack of options for women who ride motorcycles, but the brand has quickly turned into the perfect go to for stylish women on the move.

One of my absolute favourite products from MotoChic has to be the Lauren Bag. This bag quickly switches from a backpack to a tote bag. It makes it super easy to carry all my essentials while hiking or traveling for work, but then transforms to a stylish tote for pictures or meetings. It fits my laptop and has lots of storage space without looking bulky. I also love that it has reflective panels on the back so people can see me at night.

As an avid hiker I also love their Ladies Cooling Base Layer Top. Not only does it create a flattering shape, but it is also helps cool your body when hiking or biking. Added bonus, they worked with a physiotherapist to use true compression fabrics that helps reduce muscle soreness.

Motochic offers everything from t-shirts to keychains. They offer products that are both practical and stylish that are great for our busy lifestyles.

Now for the best part. You can get 10 % off your Motochic purchase by using the promo code “MIAWGORDON”. Just visit their site; https://dealspotr.com/go/SUYUk and get shopping, but you better hurry this code is only valid until April 21st.

Product Love: QLYX

 

23658474_1902890286707616_3766166520012031259_nMy name is Mia Gordon and I am directionally  challenged. Maps make zero sense to me, and I couldn’t tell you North from West if my life depended on it. Because of work I have to drive a lot. From  games, to interviews, to different radio and T.V stations. Since my GPS can never find a single or always needs a map update, I am relying on my phone to get me to where I need to go.

In the past, I would leave my phone on my passenger seat in hopes that the computer voice giving my directions would speak to me early enough to make a left turn. It wasn’t the most successful way to go. That is when I discovered QLYX.

This magnetic phone mount for my car makes it easy to follow directions while staying hands free. Perfect for the directional impaired like myself. It fits right on my vent and makes it so easy to punch in addresses and follow given directions without any distractions.

23722405_1904887469841231_2259469527671229818_n

I really love my experience with QLYX so far and after doing some more research I became even more impressed with this device. It is the first car wearable and smart mount for both iOS and Android phones meaning you can use it no matter what phone you have.

The QLYX is also extremely diverse. While I enjoy clipping it right on to my air vent, you can also put it on any flat surface and use it as an adhesive pad. I loved this aspect because when it is clipped to my air vent it never loses grip and falls down like my old GPS used to.

I was also extremely impressed at how strong the magnets of QLYX are. I always have a phone case on my phone since I always manage to drop it. Instead of having to take my case off so that it would stick to the device and then put it back on when I am leaving, it actually sticks right through the case.

The real kicker for me though was it has built in Bluetooth Low Energy module to connect to the phone and is able to auto launch my applications, meaning I don’t even have to use my hands to get to my map and it also helps me with traffic situations so that I can get to my final destination as easy as possible.

Aside from maps, it also opens up Apple and Google music, Uber, Waze, and Spotify to name a few must need apps so that way you can jam out to your tunes while following your route.  It is also programmed to auto-launch another app only at the beginning of a session in order not to spam you with push notifications.

Stylish, simple, easy. Customize your colour, clip it on,a and go. Making using your phone without any distractions that much easier.

Want to give this awesome device a try? Well you can now order it for 15% off by following this link; https://dealspotr.com/go/IiRvq

Hands free driving just got a lot easier.

My days are Busy with a capital B. I wake up in the mornings and start editing content, head out for interviews, film on camera segments and then when the day shift ends I head into Sportsnet to host the sports updates on the radio. That is just Monday through Friday. On Saturday’s you can catch me in the hockey arena or lacrosse field where I am hosting the games, interviewing players, and reporter live on the event. As I said, Busy.

Since I don’t really have time for a break during the day, I need to make sure the food I eat is fast, and that there is constantly coffee in my mug to keep me awake for my 9-5 and by that I mean 9-midnight shift.

I found myself spending way too much money on coffee and started looking for products that I can take with me on the run. That is when I came across Lean Joe Bean. Not only is it a great tasting instant coffee that dissolves in hot or cold liquids, but it also improves body composition helping you lose body weight, body fat, and improve energy overall. Could it get any better? A coffee that can keep up and also make me feel less guilty when I have to skip leg day because of a deadline.

Lean Joe Bean is honestly like no other supplement. It has taken seven years to develop this delicious coffee mix that is both safe and effective. What I love most is it is simple and quick to prepare and it really is tasty unlike other instant coffee mixes.

Lean Joe Bean’s secret weapon comes from its unique ingredients which includes dark roast coffee, green coffee bean, addolean, garcinia cambogia, green tea extracts, ginseng extracts and carnitine.

Want to give this delicious and convenient product a go? Well I have a deal for you. You can now try their 30 day supply for 20% off by using the promo code “MIAWGORDON” at checkout.
