Scrub-A-Dub Ives…

1 Nov

By Christabelle… @CBellesCloset (*Pure Editorial, Non-Paid Post*Sample provided for review)

#ScrubOff – November 1 is National Scrub Off Day

Halloween is sadly over – do you hear me sniffing through your computer?! Trust me, I am sitting in a post-Halloween blues tears, stuffing my face with candy corn and trying to get the fake blood off my neck and the faux stitches from my cheeks (not to mention the fake lashes that were part stuck to my eyeballs, part stuck to my pillow case this morning).

This girl needs a good SCRUB DOWN and lucky me –  St. Ives declared  the day after Halloween, November 1st, National Scrub Off Day to help take us all back to “natural” or in my case – take me from Chuckie back to CC.

Try any of the St. Ives scrubs with 100% natural exfoliants for a deep clean that can even penetrate through fake flesh wounds.

  • Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub – helps to invigorate dull skin
  • Blemish Control Apricot Scrub – fights unwanted blemishes
  • Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub – helps address unwanted blemishes and rednessSt. Ives scrub products are available at mass retailers, drugstores and supermarkets nationwide for $0.99 – $4.99.

And though this girl needs a shower in the worst way, I don’t want my oh-so-memorable costume to go down the drain forever! Now I can always remember (as can you) by sharing your Halloween look on @StIvesSkin Instagram using the hashtag #ScrubOff! Five lucky winners will be selected to win* a #ScrubOff prize pack including St. Ives facial scrubs and a $250 gift card. Not too shabby…

*No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. The St. Ives ScrubOff Contest is sponsored by Conopco, Inc., d/b/a Unilever.

Clean It Up with Clinique…

27 Oct

By Christabelle… @CBellesCloset (*Pure Editorial, Non-Paid Post,, Sample Provided*)

Need to clean it up in three days…37% clearer skin in just three days with Clinique.  I took the challenge and my skin agrees… 

Though I might like the fact that I still get carded for lottery tickets and liquor…I DO NOT love the fact that my skin sometimes thinks I am also that young.  My break-outs in my 30’s seem to trump those from my teens (thank you, skin Gods!).

Thankfully, with Clinique’s Acne Solutions Clear Skin System – my skin can get back on track in just three short days (just in time for my on-air appearances and personal appearances – whew!)

It is rooted in dermatological science, gentle and non-irritating. I use it twice a day with three simple steps, and I saw fewer blemishes, smaller looking pores and skin that was less oily and red. I had a blemish that earned its own zip code last week. There is no sign of it now – and good riddance. I am not interested in being that kind of mayor.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit

Acne Solutions Clear Skin System uses a 4-in-1 Clearing Complex to address acne:

  • Anti-blemish ingredients control the spread of blemish-causing agents.
  • Control oil to prevent clogged pores.
  • Non-irritating ingredients reduce irritation associated with breakouts.
  • Exfoliate and promote healthy cell turnover

Start the journey to clearer skin with Clinique’s Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit: S.R.P. $36.00

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam: S.R.P. $19.50

Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion: S.R.P. $15.00

Believe in Magic Makeup…

26 Oct

By Christabelle… @CBellesCloset (*Pure Editorial, Non-Paid Post,, Sample Provided*)

In one of my former lives, I was a publicist for Victoria’s Secret Beauty – which included working the most famous fashion show of all time. It was behind the scenes at this very show,  that I had the pleasure to meet Naomi Lowde-Priestley (yes, she is Brandon Walsh’s real life wife).  Her work was flawless, her artistry unique and her personality stunning.  I listened, watched and took notes as she created magic behind the scenes. I recall knowing this woman had a gift that went far beyond that of classes and practice.  She loved makeup – adored her work…and that made her one of my TOP experts.

Brooke Burke-Charvet and celebrity makeup artist Naomi Priestley love the remarkable new Sheer Cover Studio.

So it was no surprise, when I was sent a Sheer Cover kit to review that I discovered, she not only backs this mineral makeup, but is currently featured in the Sheer Cover Studio campaign (nationally) with Brooke Burke-Charvet and a host of other gorgeous women like Eva La Rue, Ali Fedotowsky, Nicky Whelan and Michelle Stafford.
