It’s officially award season and who isn’t swooning over your favorite celebrity’s dress or their perfectly glowing skin?!  I don’t know about you, but I want all of their star-studded style secrets!  Today, I’m going to let you in on a few TOP brands so you can be red carpet ready for your next event!  Plus, there are some major discounts on some of these products! Scroll down to find out which ones!

Babble Boxx - Star Studded Secrets- Red Carpet Ready Babble Boxx - Star Studded Secrets- Red Carpet Ready- Derma E - Clear Eyes - Winky Luxe - Kerastase Red Carpet Ready- Luma RX - Clear Eyes - Winky Lux - Kerastase - Derma E Babble Boxx - Star Studded Secrets- Red Carpet Ready - Luma Rx - IPL Hair Remover

Get red carpet (and bikini) ready with the Luma Rx Full Body Device!  This little device uses LumaRx® technology that emits light energy to penetrate deep into the skin to reach the hair root.  This heat stuns the hair follicles which disrupts the hair cycle to help prevent further growth.  This option is so much more affordable than actually having laser hair removal done at a spa with very similar results!  I cannot wait to put beauty to the test.

Skin, skin, skin… seems to be the topic of discussion lately.  Honestly, I cannot stress how important it is to have a good skincare routine!  We all know those celebrities pay the best of the best for their routines, but since most of us don’t have that exclusive access, it’s important to find the right products for our individual skin needs!

Obviously, the older I get the more important it is to use products with anti-aging components.  Now that Baby P is on the way, I need to avoid using products with a common anti-aging ingredient: Retinol. So, I’ve opted to use Vitamin C skincare as an amazing alternative!  I’ve been so excited to try DERMA E because it’s a brand that is vegan, cruelty and paraben free, and uses as much organic ingredients when they can!  The DERMA E Concentrated Serum and the DERMA E Renewing Moisturizer are the perfect combination to radiant, hydrated skin.  This combination will boost collagen health and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles all while correcting past damage and preventing new damage to the skin!

We covered skin and face so next on the list are those beautiful locks of hair!

Because my hair tends to get very dry in the winter months, I need to start prepping them for Spring by doing some damage control.  I use a deep conditioner once a week, but I also tried out Kérastase Ciment Thermique.  This treatment is going to protect your hair from the heat (blow drying, curling irons, and flat irons), keeping your hair soft, smooth, and shiny!  I love how smooth and soft it makes my hair.  If you have any breakage, you will notice a difference in your hair right away!

Toss in your bag essentials:

Clear Eyes Pure Relief® Multi-Symptom and Winky Lux: Flower Balm & Stella Marina Lipstick are two essentials I’ve been carrying in my bag since I’ve tried these products out!

I tend to get dry eyes from time to time since I’ve had Lasik surgery.  I was thrilled that Clear Eyes came out with the first preservative free eye drops in a multi-dose bottle at retail in the US.!  Other similar preservative free products I used in the past required you to toss the little tubes away after only one dose! I cringed every single time.

I also never go anywhere without 3 tubes of lip balm in my purse.  There is nothing worse than chapped lips, especially before applying lipstick.  I keep the Winky Lux: Flower Balm & Stella Marina Lipstick combo in my purse at all times.

Now for the good stuff….discounts!
