The Olivia Pope Collection At The Limited

I know my fellow Scandalites are waiting breathlessly for the return of Scandal! Just in time for Fall wardrobe refreshing, comes the release of Kerry Washington's collaboration with The Limited for the Olivia Pope collection

 The pieces reflect Olivia Pope's classic style with it's fabric and color selections. I truly love that while Olivia's wardrobe is stocked with pricier, designer items, this moderately priced collection took cues from some of those pieces. The collection even offers petites!

I love their take on the famous white Burberry caped trench from last season and plan to add it to my wardrobe. Now all I need are some elbow length leather gloves to let my inner gladiator shine!

Product Review: illuMask Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask

I've been mulling over whether or not to give at home phototherapy treatments a try, but the high cost of the devices had me hesitant to move forward.  Light treatments have been used by top dermatologists, spas and skin clinics for decades.  I personally have had both red and blue light therapy at spas with facial treatments and liked both.  

When I came across illuMask Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask in an article, and saw it priced at $30.00 on for 30 treatments, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge.

This very Daft Punk looking device delivers phototherapy in a safe, convenient and easy mask treatment. Red light evens skin tone and reduces roughness. Infrared light reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

With illuMask, you can expect: visibly brighter, clearer, smoother, more radiant skin; reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; improved skin tone and texture. 

My biggest concern was that sometimes people of color will experience darkening of skin with these treatments. I experienced none.  It has no damaging UV lights and is safe for different skin tones and skin types.

I would put on my mask nightly for just 15 minutes. It has a controller (batteries included), turns itself off after 15 minutes and shows you how many treatments are left. Eye protection is built into the mask to reduce glare and increase comfort. I also took advantage of the time to listen to a 15 minute meditation session while beautify my skin.  

I was definitely impressed with this product. Especially in relation to the cost. My skin felt tighter and smoother and pores were diminished after 3 or 4 treatments.  I had a spot on my forehead from a recent pimple, and it faded in a quarter of the time it usually takes.  By the end of the 30 day treatment cycle, it was completely gone. 

Would I purchase again? Yes. The plus side is the low cost. Down side is you need to purchase a new unit after the 30 treatments....and keep purchasing a new device every month. It seems like a waste of materials.  Maybe one day they will come up with one that you can go to a retailer and recharge for a fee.  

I do feel more comfortable with making an investment in a high end phototherapy unit, though, knowing that I will get results.
