~Pinterest DIY Beauty~ How To Make Your Own Satin Hands Scrub.....

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I love Mary Kay Satin Hands...but I don't love Mary Kay representives. lol! No shade, but they are a pushy bunch. However, Satin Hands is an awesome product. I haven't owned it in years due to my avoidance of reps. *shrugs*

When I saw this pin...I immediately pinned it under my DIYs. DIY hand scrub ala Satin Hands?? Yes!!

The pin is from One Good Thing By Jillee and she calls it "Gardener's Scrub"

 You will need:
-a container of your choice. I used a short Mason or Ball jar.
-dish detergent. She's suggests Dawn with Olay Beauty Hand Renewal. Wal-mart has a generic brand of it. I didn't know that!
-a spoon
 I filled the jar half way with sugar....
 Then I filled the jar 1/4 up with detergent. I wanted my scrub to be pastey but it was a bit liquidy. Use less detergent and more sugar to get the pastey consistency.
 Stir with your spoon....
 And you are done!

I used my scrub with Lumene Sensitive Touch SOS Cream. I put the scrub on then topped it with the cream, rubbed my hands together and rinsed. Just like you do Satin Hands. My hands felt AMAZING! You can tell I haven't given them a treatment like that in a while!!

Cool DIY, eh? Will you be trying this? Let me know!

Next week.....DIY Nail Polish with old eye shadow. Whoooaaaaa....LOL!

~ National Domestic Violence Month & mark. cosmetics~ m.powerment Lipclick Luxe Lipstick and Mirror Compact set ......

Hey Everyone!!
October is traditionally known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I wanted share with you a beautiful set that mark. cosmetics is offering in light of Domestic Violence Awareness called m.powerment Lipclick Luxe Lipstick and Mirror Compact.
I grew up in a domestic violence situation. My mother would leave my father in the middle of the night with me in tow, often going to my grandmother's house. She and I had some where to go, but there are women all over this country who are in similar and even worse situations who see no way out and endure the abuse.

m.powerment is part of Avon's bigger philantropic mission and 100% of the proceeds of this set go towards breaking the cycle of dating abuse. 

 This set includes a mirror and Lipclick Luxe Lipstick in m.powerment petal. Its only $24 for the whole set.
 m.powerment. petal in natural light, no flash
 swatch of m. powerment petal. Its a gorgeous mauve-y pink. :)
 Don't mind my light foundation( its a no go, trying it out for potential review. womp.)......
Purchase your set HERE. A little goes a long way for someone who may be in a situation and not know what to do. Even the information on where to go in their area could make a huge difference.:)
