Fab Gifts for Mother’s Day (+ More) at Beauty Collection ! #Video #Podcast!

Shopping for Mother’s Day,bridal showers, graduation and Father’s Day can be really hard. Unless you have a registry or a wish list, how do you find a great gift that the recipient will want. While we all know that they will thank you and love you for the thought, if you are like most people, you want them to love the actual gift.

That’s what I am here for– to help you out. I was able to review some top -notch products from Beauty Collection stores & beautycollection.com.

Here’s a video I did on the products listed below.

Great gifts like

NUFACE Trinity
nuface trinity

This is a great device to use because it takes only 15 minutes a day and a small amount of primer on each section of your face you want to use it on. Based on the effects of electrical current has the face (*or body part), there is a cumulative lifting effect. It does require consistent usage every night for a good while (that’s more than 30 days) to see significant results but you will see results (depending your age, health status and your usage) in a 30 day period. This is FDA approved so there’s no question that it does deliver. However that said, just like trying to lose 25 pounds in one week is impossible (unless you had a baby or surgery or both), turning back time is also takes time.

From the site:

Microcurrent is known to:
– Increase product penetration by 47% – so you will love your NuFACE serums even more.
– Increases ATP (new cell growth) by 500%, which means good for acne skin, rosacea, and hydration.
– Increases collagen and elastin to reduce crow’s feet, dark circles and brings back the “bounce” to your skin.
– Medical offices often use after a peel or microdermabrasion to reduce redness.
– Recently written up in Elle Magazine, Microcurrent is “Botox’s New Best Friend”.

The system includes:
NuFACE® Trinity Facial Toning Device
Microcurrent Treatment Head
NuFACE® Gel Primer
Charging Cradle
User Manual and Quick Start Card

Clarisonic Pedi Kit

cla pedi
This kit is not interchangeable with other Clarisonic devices. The kit provides everything you need to treat your feet better than most pedicures — with less cost over the long run. Example: if you were getting a pedicure once a month at a cost of $44.00 (before or after tip – it makes no difference in the calculations), the Clarisonic Pedi kit would pay for itself in less than 5 visits. What a steal of a deal.

The actual process is rather luxurious if you into products that smell good, feel good and happen to do what they say they will do. It’s my idea of heaven!

Clarisonic Pedi System – White includes:
Pedi Smoothing Disc
Pedi Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head
Pedi-Buff (6 oz.)
Pedi-Balm (3.5 oz.)
Pedi-Boost (1 oz.)
USB-Enabled Universal Voltage pLink Charger

Goldfaden Skincare products

I had one product already from Goldfaden that I adored. I have to go find the container since I kept it to be able to replace it. Goldfaden is actually the brainchild of a dermatologist who used natural ingredients to deliver powerful results with his skincare. This is a medical grade skincare line and expect results because you will get them!

pure start detoxifying facial cleanser $35.00

Dr. Goldfaden’s multi-tasking hypo-allergenic, ph-balanced cleanser dissolves impurities and removes dead skin cells and makeup in one simple step. Formulated with Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein to increase skin firmness and retain moisture, and potent botanical extracts to gently cleanse and balance skin without irritation or dryness. Skin is left clean, clear, smooth, and energized. Good for all skin types.

Great cleanser that will remove grit, grime, dirt and pollution from your skin!

doctors scrub ruby crystal microderm exfoliator $75.00

A little of this crystalline exfoliator goes a LONG way. Use it in “small” bites so that you don’t irritate skin. It’s amazing what your skin will feel like!

Formulated with line-filling Hyaluronic Acid to deliver long-lasting hydration while nourishing Seaweed and Organic Red Tea Extract provide antioxidant protection. Daily use improves the appearance of fine lines, reduces pore size, and leaves healthy, radiant skin. Good for all skin types.


wake up call overnight regenerative facial treatment – $80.00
This is one amazing product. I tried it one evening and the next morning I woke up with skin that I didn’t recognize. It was soft, smooth, and felt hydrated. I don’t get that feeling often unless I layer on products. I use just this one product. It can do amazing things for dehydrated skin, tired skin and irritated skin.

Powerful skin rejuvenating and firming ingredients such as CoQ10, DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Retinol, and Organic Red Tea help to renew skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, while nourishing and restorative vitamin E, Avocado and Grapeseed Oils deliver intense hydration and long-lasting skin soothing benefits. Skin is left supple, plump and firm. Ideal for normal to dry skin.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish. –what’s not to love from the one of the biggest innovators in nail polish?

From all the basics to the colorful polishes that one could covet, you can find it all here at Beauty Collection stores!

Find your local Beauty Collection store at
Calabasas Commons
Malibu Country Mart,
West Hollywood
Corona del Mar.

(Most of these items were give to me by Beauty Collection but that in no way impedes my ability to give you a fair and unbiased opinion!)
While some items are pricey, other’s don’t cost as much as you would think they could. All work pretty darn well. However it’s easier to see the Pedi tool from Clarisonic achieve its results in 1 treatment versus the NUFACE Trinity which really needs me to keep going over 2 months. (1 month was great. now it’s keep doing this every night!)
