a Seacret from us to you

Growing up as cute little girls we were taught to stay away from anything gross… (bugs, messy food, dirt, and MUD). As we grow older, the beauty industry tells us Mud is a good thing. One of the biggest contradictions of life! Ha kidding. If you are like us, you have tried almost every facial product that is on the market. We have found ones we loathe and ones we love. Here’s a mud mask that has won over our hearts. Never again will we be searching for a different brand; we introduce you to Seacret.

If you haven’t heard, they use minerals from the Dead Sea. The exact same sea that Cleopatra had her husband fight for because she couldn’t go without these minerals to keep herself looking beautiful.

Here’s how they describe this particular product:

SEACRET Mineral-Rich Clarifying Mud Mask is based on an advanced formula composed of Dead Sea Minerals from the Dead Sea Mud that gently purifies and cleans clogged pores. The Mud Mask is a Dead Sea Cosmetics product that combines herbal complexes of Aloe Vera, Chamomile Extract, Vitamin A, Sunflower Seed and Jojoba Oils. SEACRET’s unique Dead Sea mud mask nourishes the skin, leaving it smooth and fresh.

 

The retail cost is $94.95 and worth every last penny. Go ahead and thank us later! We promise you won’t regret this.

XO,

Do you Groupon?

OK, so we may be a little late on reviewing our thoughts on this but better late than never right?

groupon      So, with all the buying and selling websites these days: Ebay, Amazon, Etsy, Wanelo, etc. also came a few websites that feature the selling of products, getaways, goods and services. All of this at a discounted price. Seems legit:

    Groupon, Inc. offers online retail services. The Company provides daily deal on the stuff to do, eat, see and buy in more than 500 markets in 44 countries. It has offices across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and other parts of the world. The Company provides an online service that lets groups of people create campaigns to pool resources, including money and personal commitments to take action. It allows users to sell products and transact business online.” –CNBC

If you care enough to research it before you whip out that shiny AMEX, you may find some negative talk about the website. However, we are not here to debate what’s right and what’s wrong. We happen to love Groupon and have definitely bought our share of goods.

You can get anything from a an hour massage for $29 dollars at your local salon to a six-night Ireland vacation with airfare, accommodations and rental car for $999. Worth it! They also offer things like hair and car services, jewelry, clothes, electronics and so much more.

Check it out Betties..but don’t blame us if you get addicted. This is your warning, shop with caution.
