The new school year is just around the corner and your kids aren't the only ones who need to get ready. It can be stressful going from a laid-back summer vacay to a jam-packed, busy school schedule and with all those free-radicals out there, the dog days of summer can take major toll on your perfectly tanned skin. Thankfully, we've put together a back-to-school list just for you, moms. I know as ladies we looove to be pampered, but because we are always running this one to ballet and taking that one to soccer, we have limited time to indulge. Luckily, the folks at
Proactiv and BlissSpa
have taken that into consideration.
When the school year begins, books, supplies and food can really add up. Proactiv has an exclusive Back2School offer of $5 off any product on the website on up to 5 products. Stock up on the essentials so your skin is the last thing on your mind this fall.
non-members can save up to $25 on Proactiv's top blamish-blasting acne products, such as:
- Rejuvenating Refining Mask with antibacterial sulfur for clear, radiant skin
- Advanced Blemish Treatment to erase problem pimples fast (this is a dab and go product-perfect for busy moms)
- Medicated Cleansing Bar which gently washes away pore-clogging impurities and excess oil

Now that we've got out skin covered, let's not forget something that usually takes a back seat: our lips. Usually a little scrub here and a smudge of gloss there is all I really need for my lips. I was totally wrong. At BlissSpa's Fabulips event in NYC, I got a serious wake up call. Our lips are one of the defining features of our face and more often than not we don't tend to them properly. The stars of ABC's The Bachelorette showed me how 5 minutes a few times a week can land me on national TV...well, not really, but I can at least look the part.
With 4 easy steps you can be pouting seductively at your potential (or current) suitor--and may even get a rose out of it.
The first part of the treatment includes a bubbly cleanser. After you let it foam for a minute, rinse and dry. Then retexturize with the sugar lip scrub- exfoliate with all natural ingredients and oils. Next it's time to rejuvinate as you add an instant limp plumper made from cork tree extract. Lastly, replenish your lips with a conditioning lip balm and you've got a pucker ready for action. Get it for $45 or as an added bonus to your facial for $35. Your lips, and anyone in contact with them, will thank you.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a Fabulips kit to keep our smackers smooth.
