The Summer of Skin Perfection with my new little secrets and tips #VLBlurfection @SheSpeaksUp @LOrealParisUSA

I am a nut about skincare if you haven't already figured that one out. I love the spring and summer but I am a fanatic about protecting my skin.  My momma is 80+ and she could pass for 55 in a heartbeat.  Why?  Years of careful tending to her skin from her head to her toes.  I learned from the ultimate teacher early.  One of things she always taught me is to protect and moisturize. If you are on a budget I have a quick trick for post shower moisturization.  You can simply put olive or safflower oil in a small spray bottle and spritz on your body. Easy and effective.  My mom prefers to use a thin layer of petroleum jelly but that is too heavy for me. Her skin is gorgeous though so it is something to consider.

Neither of us ever neglect the sunscreen on our face and body either.  Even when I am working I make sure my face is protected. There are so many products out there though and I don't have time for multiple steps.  I was excited to hear about a new product from L'Oréal Paris that does triple duty. Perfect for a busy working mom or anyone really.  My mom thought it was a winner too!  

L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation SPF 18 is the first makeup with exclusive "blur technology" formulated to instantly blur lines and wrinkles.  Up until now I was using a separate blur product under my foundation. Plus the separate SPF facial product. It took extra time that I don't really have every day between work, making lunches and getting the kids ready. When I was rushed I would forget or just forego a step. Oops...not good.  Before L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation SPF 18 I was using 3 products to get the results and protection I needed. I love that signs of aging disappear as Visible Lift Blur Foundation hides my annoying little dark spots and large pores. It also smooths any uneven texture all I see is a flawless finish that feels light and natural. 

L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation is super easy to use and blends into my skin in a flash...which is about what I have for time! I like to apply my foundation or base with my fingertips, blending in an outward motion as needed. Some of my friends swear by brushes or cosmetic wedges. Just make sure you keep your tools clean and wash and air dry them regularly.  The finish is light and the coverage is similar to a CC cream in my personal experience. It provides good coverage for everyday use.

You can follow L'Oreal on all your fave social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  If you want to get all the scoop on the colors and detailed information you can check out the
Visible Lift Blur Foundation SPF 18 on the L'Oreal website too.

L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation contains SPF 18 and is available in 12 shades. I bet you can find the shade that is perfect for your skin tone. It retails for approximately $14.99 for 1.4 fl oz. and is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide starting July 2014.
