Fall Facial Favorite

This semester (& year!) are flying by!
I've been doing every little thing I can do in my spare time to try to relax and cut some of the stress out of my life...but y'all know how hard that can be!

I've talked about facials and skin treatments time and time again on my blog & I've mentioned some of my favorites.
Taking just a few minutes at the end of my day to relax, use a facial, and to soak in the day really does help me dial down and sleep better at night.

Today I want to mention one of my newest discoveries, Exuviance Bionic Facial Mask.
This stuff is golden & will totally change how you feel about your tired, dull, sad skin.

When I saw that this product was advertised as a fix for stressed skin that will help prevent premature aging, boost skin suppleness, and plump cells all with spa quality. . . but I could use it at home, I knew it was for me.

Now the price tag is no joke, it's $65 for 3.5 ounces which is steep-but it's worth every single penny for every single drop. Because of the price tag & because I'm on a college-girl/newlywed budget I don't use this product every single day. But it's great to keep on hand for special occasions (all these weddings I've been to!) and for days when I've had really early mornings and my skin is showing serious signs of exhaustion.

Basically how you use this facial is like this: 

Dampen your face and message a generous, even layer over your skin.
Wait five minutes until a thick frothy foam forms and then disappears.
Then rinse your skin & use a skin treatment or moisturizer (Exuviance has great options!) 

I know I like to spend my evening taking a bubble bath and sipping on chamomile tea while listening to some "Country Coffee House" radio (check it out-it's so good!), oh & you've gotta have your latest Bath & Body Works fall candle burning ;)

But even if you can't manage that amount of time in your busy schedule you still have time to use this facial! Five minutes before bed and you're good & done-you'll wake up the next morning and your skin will be glowing so bright you'll probably be able to skip your highlight. Hashtag natural highlight on fleek!

Let's recap: 

The Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial is made for the everyday girl who wants a splurgey beauty item, an item that can turn her from her tired, stressed skin into a beautiful, glowing complexion.
It takes just a few minutes at the end of the night and it will make you feel oh-so-much better.

It's health benefits include. . .
-Detoxifies and eliminates aging dullness
-Stimulates vital cell energy
-Provides essential support for optimal collagen levels
-PHA/Bionic Blend adds extra youth-promoting benefits to restore radiance and suppleness

I know those are lots of big, fancy words, but they're all good things-pinky promise!

The detox is what draws out all of the nastiness from your pores and opens them up to receive the oxygenated foam.
The stimulated cell energy is what brightens your skin and gives you that "natural highlight" I talked about.
The essential support for collagen levels is what gives your skin that boost and plumps it up. This will prevent fine lines and wrinkles from setting in.
And the PHA/Bionic Blend will just add more "good stuff" into your skin that will keep it bright & firm!

I hope I've intrigued you a little bit, enough to try out this product that I've come to love!
Anything that keeps my students from asking, "Mrs. Upchurch, why do you look so tired?" and I'll be willing to spend almost any amount!

What makes you willing to spend money on beauty products?
What are your splurge items?

Let me know!

Until next time. . .
