Keep Your Chest Looking Youthful with SioBeauty

SioBeauty Review by iliketotalkblogThere’s no doubt about it, taking care of our skin as we age is a necessity if we want it to look good for years to come. That means cleansing, exfoliating, treatment and prevention in order to keep it at it’s healthiest state. While we spend a whole lot of time working on our complexions, we sometimes forget that our décolleté can show our age as well. The thin skin of our chest gets just as much sun as our face, and is prone to deep wrinkles due to father time, and just the plain ol’ way we sleep. There is something on the market that can keep your chest looking youthful, and that’s with SioBeauty.  SioBeauty’s three part system works to renew, smooth, and hydrate your décolleté overnight and works especially well for us side-sleepers.

The SioBeauty kit utilizes three easy steps that you can work into your nighttime and morning routine. First is the décolleté cleansing wipes which gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin with glycolic and lactic acids to prepare the skin for the overnight. I usually did this right after my evening shower. After allowing my skin to fully dry, you then apply the silicone skin pad that does the real smoothing magic. These washable and reusable pads stick to your chest preventing new wrinkles from forming while you sleep while increases skin hydration levels by creating a micro-climate that draws moisture to the skin. No need to worry about adhesives that could cause irritation to the skin — these are FDA cleared, and clinically and allergy tested.

In the morning you peel off the pad, rinse it under water with oil free soap so it cleans off any oils and regenerates the stickiness for the following evening. The kit contains two pads with each pad lasting two weeks. I found that the edges kinda lost their stick when fuzz from my top or sheets got stuck to it and that made my baby girl want to peel at it — but stays on well. Not to mention they are comfortable to wear and you forget they are there for the most part.

I love this serum, and it’s lasted long after the rest of the kit was used up. It made my chest feel silky smooth and didn’t clog my skin at all.

SioBeauty Review by iliketotalkblog

I was pretty impressed with how well this system worked. You will really notice a difference on the first morning after you take off the pad and touch your skin. I only wish the pad reached up higher up to work on the deep creases I get from sleeping with my arm up.  I don’t think I could use this on the regular because it’s a bit out of my ongoing beauty budget, but I could see this being useful in prepping for a big day like your wedding or another special occasion.

You can find out more about SioBeauty by visiting their website and see some fabulous before and afters that I wasn’t able to capture myself with an iPhone. I also didn’t have as deep of wrinkles but I can attest to the fact that this system works! You can also follow them on Facebook or Instagram for more details on how SioBeauty can work for you.


Moisturize Your Skin With MultiVitaSkin

multivitaskin review by iliketotalkblogEven though I don’t deal with icy weather living in Southern California, I still need to make sure my skin is properly moisturized during the winter months. Indoor heat and sometimes windy weather can leave skin feeling tight and parched. There is only so much water can do before some skincare intervention is needed, and lately MultiVitaSkin has been my go to moisturizer for the past 5 weeks.

MultiVitaSkin prides itself on a few key points. For one, it’s formulated with quality, all natural ingredients and includes a unique Omega 3-6-9 oil blend that nourishes the skin promoting a smoother, more youthful appearance. This cream also uses the powerhouse ingredient resveratrol, a known polyphenol, that acts as an antioxidant fighting the signs of again, along with a combination of vitamins to keep the skin healthy and supple. I can detect the scent of cocoa butter in the formula, which I like and enjoyed using when I was pregnant and had a gigantic belly to soothe. Now that I’m a nursing mama, clean ingredients are important to me because anything I am using will come into contact with her. I suspect this would have been a great belly lotion to have handy during those months when your skin is stretching and starts to itch.

multivitaskin review by iliketotalkblogThe second thing that sets this brand apart is how affordable it is. It comes in a large no frills four ounce tub for just under $40. You guys, I’ve been using this moisturizing cream morning and night everyday for five weeks and I’ve only used about a quarter of the tub. I’ve also been applying it to the top of my hands each night and love how smooth they’ve been feeling since using this. I can expect this tub to last me anywhere from 4-5 months with the amount of usage I’m used to. And while the packaging is pretty basic, you can safely assume that less of what you spend is put into packaging and more into the ingredients and formulation of the actual product.

multivitaskin review by iliketotalkblogI’m always a bit leary of new moisturizers, especially from brands I am unfamiliar with, but MultiVitaSkin has impressed me thus far. Not only does it moisturize my skin well, my hands feel smoother, and it caused me no break outs which is always a concern with new products. There is no doubt that I am a sucker for pretty packaging, but if a product works well then really why am I worried about what the tub looks like. It works!

Get Glowing Skin at SkinXFive

** I was invited to have a complimentary facial for my honest review**

This past weekend I got a much deserved facial at the recently opened skin spa, SkinXFive created by board certified Dr. Ava Shamban.  It was a treat I was very much looking forward to since this mama hasn’t done much for herself since baby Zoe has arrived nine months ago. Yes, you read that right. Nine months! Actually longer than that because I refrained from a lot of things during my pregnancy as well. So you can imagine that I had that day marked on my calendar with alarms and emojis to commemorate the day!

SkinXFive focuses on providing the best skin renewing treatments available today that have little to no downtime. Perfect for those who want an effective skin treatment during their lunch hour or the day before a special occasion.

Dr. Ava Shamban chose the top five treatments that correct, offer preventative care and improve the skin in a modern, bright setting. Those five treatments include microdermabrasion, peels, injections, laser treatments, and radiofrequency treatments.

I was signed up for The Infuser and The Refresher, a combination of an infusing microdermabrasion treatment followed by a light chemical peel. When I arrived I had a full face of makeup on from taking family photos earlier that day and was given an opportunity to wash my face and given a quick consultation to determine what was needed for my skin.  We agreed that my skin was on the dry side, but with a oily T zone, can flush easily, and had some congestion.

The Infuser was unlike any microdermabrasion treatment I’ve done before. In the past, I remember it feeling like sandpaper on my skin, and sometimes even leaving scratch marks on my face!  This was completely different in that it was gentle and comfortable and I didn’t have to contort my face or stretch my skin out in any way, I just got to relax. The products that they used afterwards smelled delicious (in my case a lemony product was used)! We even joked about how “tasty” they could be because they were all fruity! Before moving onto The Refresher I got a quick feel of my skin and it felt smoother already!

The Refresher truly was a light, comfortable peel. I’ve had pretty strong peels before where your face feels like its burning but this was just a mild tingle. It helped further remove any excess dead skin cells and smooth the skin for a healthy glow. Because I flush easily, I was warned I might be a bit pink afterwards but that it would go away quickly, and it did. The last step of this treatment was getting hyaluronic acid infused into the deeper wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes to plump them up a bit.

I looked in the mirror after my treatments and I was a bit pink, but holy moly my skin looked a million times better! My pores were refined and markedly looked smaller, my skin just looked healthier overall.  Not to mention it felt incredibly smooth afterwards! By the time I made it downstairs to meet my husband the redness had already gone away and we could move onto lunch instead of hiding in the house as I usually would do after a facial.

After reviewing their menu again I’d love to see how The Spotless treatment would work for me since this combination made some wonderful improvements already! It’s now four days later and I still feel how smooth my skin feels and know that my serums and moisturizers are absorbing better. I haven’t worn makeup since that day, but haven’t felt the need to either.
