Simple Skincare Review and Giveaway

I recently started using three new products from Simple Skincare that I absolutely fell in love with. Simple provides quality products that contain no harsh chemicals, artificial perfumes or dyes that will upset your skin. I can certainly vouch for this because I have sensitive skin and these products did not irritate it at all. Read on for the details on each product and enter to win your own Simple products at the bottom of this post. The Simple Prize Pack also includes a gift card to Walmart so you can select another Simple product of your choosing!

Exfoliating Facial Wipes


These wipes are wonderful. Not only do they effectively remove makeup, they actually exfoliate your face! The textured cloths gently lift dead skin cells to leave your skin revived and revitalized. Love!

Revitalizing Eye Roll-On


The Revitalizing Eye Roll-On helps reduce puffiness and wakes up and revitalize tired eyes by instantly cooling and gently massaging the delicate eye area. Just roll on under the eye area and pat any excess into your skin with the pad of your finger. It’s like an instant eye lift.

Eye Makeup Remover


This eye makeup remover can get rid of even the most stubborn waterproof mascara. It is gentle, but gets the job done.

And now… the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Giveaway time! Don’t wait too long to enter for your chance to win – the giveaway ends on Wednesday, July 23. See  the giveaway widget below to enter! Good luck and get ready to enjoy the skin you’re in! 🙂

Share Your Best Beauty Secrets & Win


I’d say it’s about time for another giveaway, wouldn’t you?! This time, I’m giving away a one year supply (yes, you read that right!) of Gray Away AND a $100 Visa Gift Card.  Whaaaat!

I am totally guilty of letting my hair grow out too long (which is ridiculous especially since I color my own hair), but sometimes it’s just hard to work in the time to get your hair done! Gray Away is an awesome quick fix when you can’t make it to the salon. (Also, your natural hair doesn’t have to be gray for you to use it. Works just as well with regular old roots!) It’s a temporary spray (washes out) that does not contain dyes, but uses mineral derived pigments.

It’s one of those great tools to keep in your beauty arsenal when you’re in a pinch. We all have our own stash of beauty secrets – go-to quick fixes, money saving tips or unexpected solutions to beauty problems. Some we share with our besties, some we keep to ourselves (or if you’re me, you tell everyone who will listen). In honor of those enterprising women and their creative solutions, Gray Away is inviting women around the nation to let down the veil of secrecy and share their best kept beauty tips.

So, here’s where you come in. I want you to submit your top beauty secret to me! Tweets are preferred, but I like comments and emails too. The most creative and unique tip will win the prize. See the rafflecopter widget below for other entry options. And good luck! 🙂
