The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin Review

I am not very good when it comes to skin care, you can tell just by looking at the condition of my face. In the past few years I have tried products but haven't really stuck with them. Some have worked and others, well not so much. So when I read a little bit about The Skin Regime I was intrigued. I didn't expect to learn so much. I couldn't put this little book of information down!

The book's author Dana Ramos was generous enough to send me her book, The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin and The Skin Regime 1-4-All Peel. Once I started reading about how to take care of skin, I was amazed. This book is one little gem, so much insight about skin and the products to use and what to avoid. Like I said before I really didn't take good care of my skin, as a teenager and in my 20's I didn't do much except for the occasional moisturizer and a home mud mask. In my late 20's I noticed a change. My face started to breakout, it was dry and oily, uneven tone, and then the dark spots came. This is when I decided to start trying various products, but I needed something that was simple. This book shares a way to do just this, a simple skin regime that anyone can do. 
I haven't finished my 10-12 weeks of using The Skin Regime just yet. This amount of time may seem long, but the change doesn't happen overnight (like we all wished it would). But I still plan on sharing once I finish. I am telling you all do not hesitate in purchasing this book. You will be pleasantly surprised. There isn't a certain product being pushed on you, everything is explained, sometimes with a bit of humor that makes you smile. 

Lastly, I want to share one tidbit of info that I had never heard of before. Within the last year or so I started to have this blotchy light brown coloring near my cheekbones and one BIG almost circular spot in the middle of my forehead. While reading about Dana's own skin story she shared that she had this same experience. The discoloration is called melasma. I couldn't believe what I was reading, I had never known anyone else to have the same thing. Especially when she mentioned it being on her forehead, I have been so embarrassed about this. So I thank you Dana Ramos for sharing this, it opened my eyes and made me realize I am not alone. I love the book, The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin, and the 1-4-All Peel, and I believe you all will too.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio-
Perfect Cup of Coffee Every Time

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, 
and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As an avid coffee drinker I have tried many coffees, many claim to be the "best" or "greatest" coffee. What they don't claim is being able to brew a cup of coffee in a minute or less, or being made with only high quality ingredients! The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto does both of those and brews 19 different hot AND cold beverages. You can have your hot cappuccino in the morning and an iced cappuccino in the afternoon, from the same machine! I was fortunate to receive a NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio machine and I love it. The Genio is so easy to use with little to no clean up other than throwing away the capsules needed to make the greatest cup of coffee!  I love the ability to decide the strength, temperature and size of my coffee all in one machine.

The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto really does prepare your drink of choice in a minute or less. The Genio, pictured above, makes 3 cups with a 21 ounce reservoir that easily fills and slides on the back. Making your drink is so effortless, just add your drink capsule and make your own paradise in a cup. Every capsule is airtight making sure they are fresh each and every time. The coffee beans used are grown on NESCAFÉ farms, roasted to perfection and then finely ground to each specific drink. I was surprised to learn that the coffee capsules are good for up to a year! For the milk-based drinks there is a 2 capsule system, using a separate milk capsule that are filled with natural whole or skim milk that is preservative and hormone free.

Okay, so I admit I am not the best at making videos, but I had to share with you all how easy it is to brew a cup of Dolce Gusto coffee. I forgot to mention that the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is designed with a professional 15-bar pressure system, that works by very quickly dispensing the water evenly over the grinds creating a bold, full flavor. I personally LOVE the Morning Blend/Light Roast, every cup is heavenly! My family is enjoying the Dolce Gusto Genio as well, my husband is a bold, dark roast kind of guy, and my kids are thrilled to be able to make their own iced cappuccinos. The next flavors to try are Caramel Latte Macchiato, Chai Tea Latte and the Latte Macchiato (below).

I just have to share that the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio is a recipient of the 2014 Consumer Reports Award and the 2014 Gold Edison Award. You can get your own award winning NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto at select California Target locations, on the Target website, and select California Costco locations.
