The LANEIGE Mineral Water-Based Skincare is available at Target #TimelessSkin

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LANEIGE. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


Have you seen the new mineral water-based skincare products at Target? LANEIGE (Lan-Ej) uses a patented Advanced Water Science ™ Technology to tackle all of you skin concerns from hydration to sun protection and age prevention. Because this brand is exclusive to and many Target stores, you can now buy quality and gentle skincare products at an affordable price.

I was sent a variety of products from this line and I will tell you about each one and how I use them myself!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask: Delivers intense doses of moisture to stressed and dehydrated skin. I use 1-2 times a week and I love the scent that comes from the orange flower, rose and sandalwood with the blend of apricot and chestnut extracts. I apply this after using the toner and emulsion.

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream: This is a richly-texturized moisture cream that brings 24 hours of moisture. The skin protection comes from using mango butter extract. This leaves my skin so smooth and I have to stop myself from touching my face after using-but is feels so soft! I apply this on the nights when I'm not using the Water Sleeping Mask. 

Laneige Water Bank Serum: This also gives 24 hours worth of moisture as the serum allows for a deeper moisturizing, maximizing the nutrients deep within the skin. I apply this at night after the emulsion.

Laneige Multi-Cleanser: I keep this one in the shower and use everyday to remove makeup and get the exfoliating my skin needs from the papaya used.

Laneige Power Essential Skin Toner: After cleansing my face and before any other products, I use this toner to help rid my skin of remaining dead skin cells and give my skin some nutrients it needs. I get a dose of Vitamin B3 and protection from oily-prone skin using this toner.

Laneige Balancing Emulsion: After the toner, I use the emulsion to treat uneven skin tone and dark spots. It gives the restoration ingredients my skin needs and smells great too!

Laneige BB Cushion: After using any of the above products, I use the tinted BB Cushion. This 5-in-1 BB formula provides my skin with SPF 50 protection, reduces dark spots, cools and hydrates skin and offers a tint that comes in light, medium or medium-dark shades. 

There are a few more LANEIGE products available at Target including kits that make great gifts!

Tips for outdoor enthusiasts to stay protected from harmful UV radiation

This is a promotional post for Coolibar

When the sun is out, we love to get outside and explore! With summer coming our days will be full of chalk drawings on the sidewalk, bike rides, swimming, camping and many other outdoor activities. We make sure to grab a bottle of sunscreen then focus on food, gas and toys for the days adventure. Our mind is on so many things so we have all we need for the day, but what if I told you that the clothing your family is wearing for the day can result in harm? Those UV rays are stubborn and in many fabrics can travel right through them to your skin! Simply throwing any old shirt on them and using sunscreen on the exposed skin is not the correct way to protect and we know know that today! 

Tips for outdoor enthusiasts to stay protected from harmful UV radiation:
  • Wear lightweight moisture wicking sun-protective clothing. T-shirts are NOT adequate protection against UV rays. Along with the UPF 50+ rating in your clothing, it¹s important to wear moisture wicking clothing so you don¹t overheat.
  • wide-brim hat is a must for golfers, walkers and spectators and provides extra coverage to the neck and shoulders, areas that often get more sun exposure. Every inch of hat brim can lower your lifetime risk of skin cancer by 10%. For runners, choose lightweight hats that cover the top of the head and neck.
  • When possible, avoid outdoor activity between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun¹s UV radiation is most intense.
  • Keep sunscreen and a hat in your sports/gym bag so they are always available. Use a golf umbrella for shade when walking or waiting.
  • Remember to reapply your sunscreen every every two hours, or more often if sweating or swimming. Use sport sunscreen so it doesn't run and irritate your eyes.
  • Wear sunglasses. In addition to protecting eyes from UV exposure, another cancer risk, the right sunglasses offer impact protection, and reduce reflection on the road, field or course.

The tips above are courtesy of Coolibar who makes it their commitment to provide consumers with clothing that safe for the entire family. Perhaps you have seen them-twice -on the Oprah's Favorite Things list! I am wearing the Cool Quarter Zip Up fitness jacket that is perfect for a cool evening run or to throw on while boating when the sun goes down and the chill sets in. Whether I wear it morning, noon or night, I know I am fully protected underneath from UV rays. as it is rated at UPF 50+.

I worked in the cardiology field for several years as a surgery scheduler before my opportunity to be a SAHM. Many of our patients came to us for tastings and treatments to their hearts and vascular system before or after cancer treatments. I have seen cancer sitting in front of my at my desk-these are Dad's, Mom's, Grandparents, Friends who never imagined to be hit with this devastating disease. The best stories come from those who once had cancer and now live cancer-free and because they caught it early enough! We need the men in our lives-we need Dad, husband and our son's! At 240,000 diagnosis' a year, encouraging early detection is not only necessary but also easier than ever thanks to Polaris.

Prolaris is a genetic test from Myriad Genetics Laboratory that uses a molecular assessment with risk factors to measure how fast prostate cancer cells are dividing. For someone diagnosed with prostate cancer, this test is used to find the best treatment option for them. Now Prolaris is being featured as a reminder to talk to your doctor about prostate cancer testing. Early detection is the best chance for survival and recovery.
