self portrait challenge ~ bathroom

self portrait in my bathroom, canon digital rebel xti

I am taking this self portrait challenge opportunity to do a shameless plug for my favorite skin care product (yes, i was being sarcastic in that second pose). I took these photos a few minutes ago right out of the showa'.

I heart Mario Badescu. I even love saying his name.

My friend Letha introduced me to this product when I was visiting her in Seattle and I've been hooked every since. I couldn't believe how soft, clean and smooth my skin felt (my hubs loves it too), so I purchased a few products. A few months later, I was hanging out with my friend Stacie and noticed her skin looked and felt so soft that I wanted to pet her (and of course, i did). I asked this kitten what she used and she said Mario! No way. Prrrr kitty.

When my mom came to visit a few weeks ago, she tried it out and ended up ordering a whole face line. So girlies...and gents too, I promise you you'll dig this stuff. It's like butter.

Since this month's challenge is about the bathroom and this is the last one, I wanted to talk about something that I cherish in the bathroom every day. The time after my shower is such a sacred one for me. I do whatever I can to eat well and replenish my body with water and taking care of my skin is part of that yummy package.

If I am really crazy about something, I make sure to share the love here on my blog. I've never been one to go wild about skin care products but this one is too good to keep quiet.

Try the seaweed stuff. You'll feel like a mermaid (or merman).

Your so cute :D
Loving these photo's.

I've looked at the website, and it looks so yummy for the skin! A bit less yummy for my bank account though. But I know what I'm gonna ask for chirstmas :D

I wish I could try different products myself. Unfortunately I have to use Proactiv to keep my skin clear. I could use a new eye cream though - I'll check it out ;)

I've been looking for a moisturizer that is 1.) paraben free (no methyl-, propyl-, iso-) and 2.) doesn't make my skin break out. I've tried Burt's Bees and other all natural stuff but alas, I break out and then have to revert to the chemical stuff again. But it looks like some of these products are paraben free! Whoopee! ;o)


*parabens have been found in the tissues of women with breast cancer and are banned in the EU; they are in nearly every soap, shampoo, conditioner, makeup product, etc. used by women.

I've never used Mario, but I have heard fantastic things about his products. I may have to vacation from my Proactiv to give it a whirl.

You made me giggle! A LOT!

And I hope you're not jealous... Because Mario will be making his rounds to every one of our bathrooms now!

I check out your blog on a regular basis and totally dig it...
just wanted to tell you that the skincare line you mentioned contains parabens in the ingredients...
there has been a link between parabens and cancer...

this website explains...
