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.

$26

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.

$22

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.

$16

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.

$22

 

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.

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.

Finally a coffee that can be ready on the go for those of us that are always on the go.

Product Love: Jewel On Fire

_White_1112018122413197_Large

Working on T.V. has its challenges. I have to write scripts, remember my lines, come up with creative interview questions, engage the audience, and try and look my best in the process. Just the other day I was watching back one of my reports when I realized something was missing, I looked well, blah. I had no colour or pop to my outfit. It was in that moment that I was on a mission to find some jewelry that would stand out, but not overshadow. That would compliment my outfit, but not break the bank. High expectations right? Well not actually because I stumbled upon Jewel On Fire.

About Jewel On Fire 

I was really impressed when I started to do my research on the company. After working as jewelry manufacturers for over 50 years, they realized how much stores would mark up the cost of diamonds and gems. UP TO 500% (no wonder diamonds are so unaffordable). Their concept is that regular people like you and me should be able to afford high quality jewelry and so they cut out the middle man. You are able to buy directly from the craftsmen and manufacturers at 90% off retail pricing. Sounds pretty good right? Well it gets better because you can do it from your couch. In fact I am looking at the next piece I want to buy right now.

Just take a look at some of the amazing pieces available on the site. All low cost but real diamonds and gems;

Whether you are looking for jewelry from a night on the town, your wedding, a gift, or just something to dress up your every day look you can find it here at an affordable price.

Product Love: Garnier Face Care

IMG_6447

If you have been following my blog you know that I use Garnier shampoo and conditioner for my hair. Well I recently discovered their skin care products and quickly became addicted to them. What I love about these products is how moisturizing they are. As an on air reporter and host who travels a lot for work, I am always dealing with changing conditions and climates and need a product that will keep my skin healthy. I wanted to share my routine and some of my must have’s with you.

 My face routine

Step 1 

Clean_MicellarWater_Shake_100ml_New

Micellar Water All-in-1 Cleansing Water

I start with this cleanser day and night because it just leaves my skin feeling and looking so clean. I use a cotton ball to remove al my makeup. It lifts all my oil and makeup while not leaving my skin feeling dry. I also love that it is really gentle on my eyes.

Step 2

Clearly-Brighter-Hydratant-Quotidien-Radiant-et-Lissant-SPF15 - big

Skin Active Clearly Brighter SPF 15 Brightening and Smoothing Daily Moisturizer

My next step in the day time is my moisturizer and I love this SkinActive Clearly Brighter moisturizer. It contains an antioxidant complex of Vitamin C and E so it helps my skin look more alive no matter how much sleep I got the night before. It also evens out my skin tone and it absorbs fast which is great for someone on the go. The best part it contains SPF so I never forget to protect my skin.

Step 3 

Moisture Bomb - Super Hydratant oxydant crème_new_New

Moisture Bomb Gel Cream 
At night I use a different moisturizer, the Moisture Bomb Gel Cream because it helps repair my skin overnight. I love this cream because it is rich in vitamins and antioxidants like Goji Berry extracts. It really helps my skin recover and hydrate while I am sleeping. I wake up with smoother and healthy skin. The really neat thing about this cream is that it helps renew, restore, and nourish the epidermis meaning a more radiant glow.

Step 4

 Garner Skinactive Clearly Brighter Dark Spots Corrector

I finish my routine with this dark spots corrector that has a high level of Vitamin C and exfoliating ingredients which helps eliminate skin surface dead cells. the corrector helps even out my skin town and leaves my skin looking flawless. I have truly noticed a difference.

I have truly noticed a difference in the quality of my skin since I started using these products. My skin is brighter, softer, smoother, and my hydrate. It really helps with the changing conditions when I travel and helps make being on camera a lot easier.
