Rodan & Fields Giveaway

I was provided with a free Rodan & Fields mini-facial in return for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Hmm, you know how there are always those things that - no matter how out there you are with yourself, how transparent or bold you pride yourself on being - you still feel self-conscious about? Well, one of mine is my skin. 

I didn't have a horrible teen experience. I'm not having the worst breakouts ever as an adult. It's just been a steady pain in the butt and apparently my face feels the need to remember every issue it has ever had - in my opinion, the result is an uneven, bumpy looking complexion which annoys me in pictures take from the side. (Seriously, to the degree that you won't see any personal pictures of me in this post!)

Recently, I was asked to try out the Rodan & Fields mini-facial. I have to say I think it was very helpful in cleaning out the pores, smoothing out the skin and giving my skin a healthy-looking sheen. Obviously I didn't use it for an extended period of time so I can't tell you if the results would have continued to improve, but based on the results I did get, I would think they would have. 

The first step is the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste - it scrubs great but melts into soft feeling skin that makes you truly feel like you've had a facial. There's also a lip and full body version that I would love to try. Unfortunately, my bumpiness doesn't stop at my chin.

Following that you apply a Night Renewing Serum that seriously feels like you're rubbing a silk blanket against your skin. It comes in a small pod for the mini-facials and I squeezed out every last drop. It was too bad there wasn't enough for the rest of my skin. Ha!

Fair warning these products are not inexpensive and will probably be a splurge for some of you. But if you're going to splurge, this is one product I could recommend. If you think of it in comparison to a facial at a spa that lasts an hour . . . you could split the container of this product with a spouse or sibling and still make it last several months! In that sense, it becomes much more economical and long-lasting. 

Today, you have the opportunity to win a tub of this scrub for your very own facial experience.

There are two different ways to enter:

#1 - Take this survey and if you don't win the tub of Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, you will receive a sample of the mini-facial anyway!

#2 - Share this post through Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Google+ and receive an additional entry for each method. (Please tag @MelStuffBlog or MelissaStuff Blog so I can verify your entry.)

Leave a comment for each entry please. 

I'm super excited to see who wins . . . good luck!

This giveaway will end at midnight on July 26th. The winner will be notified by email and will have 24 hours to respond before the prize will be passed on to the next name chosen.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
