Ahhhhh....relief with Curel Intensive Healing Cream! #review #imabzzagent

I was recently invited to join the Curel Intensive Healing Cream campaign through BzzAgent. I was extremely excited since my skin could use a major overhaul!  As I said in my last Curel post, I work with my hands daily with harsh chemicals and cleaners. I've been forever on the lookout for a lotion or cream that can actually keep up with all of the abuse I give my skin.

Here is a photo before I tried Curel Intensive Healing Cream for the first time.  Dry, cracked, itchy, irritated. Not words you want associated with you skin. Unfortunately, those words describe the skin on my hands perfectly. Not cool. Especially as the weather gets colder, and the air gets dryer. My skin is torture!



Now, for the good part.  I started using Curel Intensive Healing Cream every day.  My skin is bad every day.  I noticed right away that my skin felt better.  I felt instant relief from the dryness and itching!  The cream goes on a bit greasy, but within a minute or so, was completely absorbed and my skin was transformed!  I was absolutely amazed!   Here is an after photo, after using it for a couple weeks.
Amaze-balls, right?  I wish you could see the difference better in the photos.  But take my word for it, I've never felt relief from a hand cream, quite like this before...ever!  Now, Curel states that if you use the cream daily, after a few weeks, your skin will heal and retain its moisture much better than before.  Being that I still have to subject my skin to those harsh cleaners every day, I didn't notice a big difference in the actual 'health' of my skin.  But I'm telling you, I know that at the end of a long day, my hands will feel instant relief from all the irritants with just a little swipe of the Curel Intensive Healing Cream!  I stand behind this product and any and all of its claims.  It has worked wonders for my hands and I will continue to use it as long as I can find it!



Just a little heads up, I've also used it on my elbows and knees, and have noticed a big difference!  Not only are those dry patches moisturized and healthy now, some of the lines and wrinkles in those areas have smoothed out too!  I'll continue to use it on other problem areas too!

Here's a quick rundown of Curel Intensive Healing Cream's benefits!
  • Spreads easily, non-greasy and absorbs quickly
  • Provides immediate healing relief and revitalizes ceramide levels  (find out how important ceramides are!)
  • Clinically-proven to help chapping and chafing caused by dryness
  • Fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic
  • 9 out of 10 dermatologists recommend using it
  • Pediatrician tested: suitable for children 6 months and older
  • Excellent for dry skin associated with diabetes — Curél® is a proud partner of the American Diabetes Association
You can purchase Curel Intensive Healing Cream at local retailers, or online!

Dry, cracked, itchy skin...oh my! #review #imabzzagent

Okay. No one likes to show off a part of their body they don't like. One part of my body that bothers me are my hands. I feel like the state of your hands can be deceiving to your age. Dry, cracked hands can age you, and I'm not quite ready for that yet!

The problem is, I clean houses part time, and spend a lot of time with my hands in a bucket of water, or coming in contact with a bunch of chemicals that are really tough on my skin. And it shows on my skin and nails!  And hate letting people look closely.

So here goes...


Ick. That is not a pretty hand.

But hopefully, all of that is about to change!  I'm a member of BzzAgent, and was lucky enough to be included in the Curel Intensive Healing campaign.  I've been giving it a try and can't wait to update on my progress! 


So just a little info on this luscious product.  Here are a couple of highlights!
  • Spreads easily, non-greasy and absorbs quickly
  • Provides immediate healing relief and revitalizes ceramide levels for long-lasting hydration
  • Clinically-proven to help chapping and chafing caused by dryness
  • Fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic
  • 9 out of 10 dermatologists recommend using it
  • Pediatrician tested: suitable for children 6 months and older
  • Excellent for dry skin associated with diabetes — Curél® is a proud partner of the American Diabetes Association
I have sensitive, dry, cracked, and itchy skin.  I'm hoping the serious hydration and non-greasy formula will be able to turn my skin around!  And we'll see if my sensitive skin reacts at all being that it's fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic!  Stay tuned!

A close call (well, a close shave anyway) with the Schick Hydro Silk razor! #imabzzagent




I've been shaving my legs for somewhere around 20 years now. You think I'd be used to it. Nope. I hate it. It's such a chore. And from sudsing, to shaving, rinsing, drying, moisturizing, moisturizing, moisturizing, I usually have to dedicate an extra 10-15 minutes just to my legs! Makes me want to wear pants all year round!

Well say good bye to wasted time and effort and multiple lotion applications with the Schick Hydro Silk razor!


  • 5 Curve Sensing Blades
  • Moisturizing Serum
  • Unique Skin Guards
  • Compact Oval Cartridge
  • Soft Touch Handle

Shaving with the Schick Hydro Silk razor is smooth and comfortable! I used just a bit of soap, but in a pinch, you could actually shave with the razor and no soap, thanks to the moisturizing serum. It was a quick and easy shave. No shaving from different angles or shaving over two or three times to try and get the closest shave. One smooth swipe and I was smooth as a baby's bottom! It's a little hard to tell in the photo below, but my right leg is freshly shaved with the Schick Hydro Silk razor. It was softer, smoother, and even almost a bit brighter than the other leg. Fantastic!


After shaving, I didn't have to rush to get dried off and then apply moisturizer before my skin dried out. The moisturizing serum kept it silky and smooth for about an hour before I got around to applying a little lotion.



The package comes with the razor and blade, and extra refill, and a suction cup holder for your tub or shower. I have a matte finish, tile shower and the suction cup wouldn't hold. But any smooth shower surface would work great, and the razor would be up out of the way and convenient to grab!

Like Schick Hydro Silk on Facebook where you can also print a $4.00 off coupon!

The Schick Hydro Silk is listed on Drugstore.com for $11.49.

COVERGIRL blastflipstick Campaign featuring Sofia Vergara! #GotItFree #imabzzagent



"Lip color blending is key backstage because it gives me the power to sedign unique, high-fashion looks to complement any style. I love that Covergirl Blastflipstick empowers everyone to create their own signature look every day." - Pat McGrath, COVERGIRL Global Creative Design Directory and make-up artist extraordinaire, share her thoughs on the new blastflipstick.

Well, not all of us are make-up artists or runway models, but we all love to look great for a great price, right?  Enter COVERGIRL's new blastflipstick!  It won CEW Awards Best New Lip Product!  The dual-sided stick is creamy, smooth color on one end, and a shimmery shade on the other.  It truly goes on smooth as silk.  And you control the amount of shimmer!  Maybe start with the creamy lip color for day, and swipe on a quick layer of shimmer for night - all in one stick!  These truly take the guess work out of complementary shades, for the not-so-makeup-savvy (like myself).  I tried out the Stunner, Vixen and Minx.  And by looking at them, I never thought the color combinations worked together.  But I was pleasantly surprised at how well they complemented each other!  Shows how much I know...  If you're like me, and don't even know where to begin with lip color, or are just curious about what looks best on you, GET COLORMATCHED, on the COVERGIRL site!


There are 13 complementary shade duos, with cream and shimmers for a kaleidoscope of colors.
