Product Rave: Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream

  • Very affordable
  • You get a lot of product in a weighty glass jar
  • Easy to smooth on
  • Refreshing, cooling sensation
  • Moisturizes skin instantly
  • Absorbs quickly and doesn't oil up
  • Keeps skin feeling hydrated, soft, & smooth
  • Works fine under makeup

  • Some people might not like that it's in jar
  • The cooling sensation might be a little strong for some people

Overall, I love this stuff! It leaves a very light feeling on your skin and absorbs fairly quickly. I found this to be comparable to the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, but with a more reasonable price tag. My skin doesn't feel as oily through out the day as it would with regular oil-free moisturizers. I think this is great for use during the summer season, but I know this will be my year round product. In fact you can go here and print $1 off coupon.

Swimsuits for All

It's the beginning of summer as like every one else I am excited to take the lil munchkin to the beach and the pool this season. I have been on shopping around to see if I find a perfect, yet flattering bathing suit since I am a full figured girl. I ran into this site called Swimsuitsforall while on a bloggers page, it  offers swimwear and related apparel & accessories that work for real women sizes 8 & up.  It's been about 2-3 years since I have bought a bathing suit and I wanted to get a one piece that would be somewhat slimming and flattering at the same time and wanted to take advantage that the site was having an extra 20% off on already reduced swimwear. 

This is what I ended up getting....

Blue Sarong Front Swimsuit by Penbrooke          

After shipping and the percentage taken off the total was $29, which wasn't bad at all! It was shipped via USPS and arrived about 4 days after shipping. To tell you the truth I was surprised at how cute the bathing suit actually looked on. I was so happy with my purchase that I know I am going to get another one, since I received a postcard that said that on July 4 there will be a huge sale. Have you shopped at Swimsuitsforall yet?
