Y’OUR Personalized Skin Care Review

Skincare has become more important to my beauty routine as the years go by. Now that I am wiser, and know there is more to keeping the skin I have been blessed with healthy than moisturizing, I want to develop a routine that works for me. For a while, that was not so easy. With so many products, regimens, promises and advertising aimed at my age group, I honestly had no idea where to begin.

Then I heard about Y’our and I started developing a routine that works for my skin and life magically lost a lot of guesswork. Instead of shelling out big bucks to get lackluster results, I started by taking a quiz about my skin and found a 4 part regime that is perfect for my lifestyle and unique skin.

The Y’our approach factors in environmental, age, lifestyle and stress in your daily life and pairs natural and effective products to give you the best results. Each Y’our skincare set includes a cleanser, a day cream, a night cream and a serum selected with you in mind. 

Offering a unique and fabulous approach to skincare that beats the one product fits most packaging that is all too common in the market for healthy skin. This 4 product set has a value of $195 and provides priceless results. 

Being a busy mom of three boys I rarely have time to spend in the bathroom but I wanted to make time to use Yo

Frownies Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream


Cellulite is one of those things that we normally don’t talk about except for maybe with our best of friends. I am about to introduce to you Frownies’ Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream. You may not know that cellulite can form on multiple parts of the body including legs, hips and even your underarms. Anywhere that skin gets loose with age can become cellulite, but now you can fight it with the Frownies’ Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream.


The cream combines pure therapeutic essential oils with natural caffeine and plankton. This combination will help improve the look of cellulite on your hips, thighs, belly and even your underarms. With continued use your dimples from the cellulite will look more and more smooth.

Understanding where cellulite comes from will help you not feel as bad for having it. All that happens is that pockets of fat and fluids that are trapped strain against your skin. Cellulite is just fat storage and even though you may be troubled by it because you think it looks bad, cellulite can happen on any body type. You are not alone.

Even if you exercise regularly, there can be skin that will not budge no matter how much you work at it with diet and working out. Surface dimpling can occur for multiple reasons. It may never go away completely but can be made to look less noticeable with the Frownies’ Aroma Therapy Cream. Don’t stop exercising because that will add even greater results than just with the cream alone.

Apply Frownies’ Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream twice daily to those areas that you want to firm, tone and smooth out. Most of the time these places include the ones that I listed above. Give the product 30 days to show you results before judging how the cream is working for you.

The ingredients in the Frownies’ are what makes you get results. The plankton extract helps improve body tone, redefine your silhouette and will help with arm sagginess. Long story short, the plankton will mimic the effect of endurance training that are going to be increased with other physical activity that you do on your own. The therapeutic essential oils blend will assist in breaking down stored fat that form cellulite to begin with. MSM is a natural beauty mineral that will keep your skin smooth and looking more youthful. Caffeine is included in this mix because it enhances circulation and reduces water retention in the tissues of your skin.

The Skin Conditioners inside the Frownies’ Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream will definitely pull it all together as they soften and smooth the appearance of your skin. Frownies’ will help make you feel better about yourself and put your cellulite to shame. It will never use anything artificial including fragrances and is free from synthetic chemicals and preservatives that can be toxic.

LegsHere is my before and after photo. I have been using Frownies Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream for about 4 weeks now and so far I can see an improvement in my skin and the cellulite is disappearing. I still have a ways to go so I will continue to use. It is very easy to apply and doesn’t feel greasy while wearing.

You will get the best for your skin while showing cellulite that you may have acquired over the years who’s boss. Frownies’ will always stand behind it’s products that they are the highest quality and best nutrients for your skin.

TriDerma Skin Care Products


Magento Commerce

TriDerma is made with Certified Genuine Virgin Organic Aloe, moisturizers, and other carefully selected botanicals to target and help heal a wide variety of skin problems. Today I tested the Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream, Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum and Last Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer.

I received TriDerma’s Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream, Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum and Last Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer for review. We all know busy moms tend to put their needs last and sometimes that means our beauty. With TriDerma products it only takes for few seconds to apply and a few weeks to start noticing the results. No need to go to the spa for treatments, try TriDerma. 

pore reducing anti-age serum

Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum: For Every Day Oil Control – Transform skin without harsh chemicals, peels or procedures. This creamy serum works like a skin primer but does more than just “fill-in” pores. With each use, exclusive RefinaPore™ helps change and visibly reduce the look of pores. The dual action formula instantly hides imperfections. Pore-Reducing Anti-Age Serum instantly provides smoother, more refined skin. Daily use helps improve overall skin texture and helps control excess oil leaving skin feeling silky soft. It seems I have a face of a teenage with raging hormones. My pores have gotten bigger and noticeable and I tend to have facial outbreaks. I have tried lots of products for pore reducers but they seem to work right then and they sneak back up, never really going away. I have been searching for a pore reducer because the pores can really take away from appearance in my opinion. With the Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum it is not greasy and doesn’t clog my pores or make my face feel or look oily. I haven’t been using this product that long but hope to see results really soon. 

spot & wrinkle erasing cream

Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream: For A Flawless Face – This medical strength anti-aging complex provides results like those from a dermatologist from the comfort of your home. The premium, spot-reducing and non-greasy cream contains a unique combination of clinically proven rich botanicals, anti-oxidants, anti-irritants and five specialized brightening ingredients that work to resurface skin naturally for a more radiant, wrinkle and spot-free complexion. Unlike Hydroquinone, Retin A or Alpha Hydroxy Acid, this fast-acting formula helps erase brown spots, age spots, and acne scars while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I struggle with oily skin without applying any creams or lotions to my face. If it is not oily then it is really dry. There is no in between. I am starting to notice my wrinkles in the corner of my eyes and forehead even more and I haven’t even turned thirty which is really concerning. I’ve tried many over the counter products and none that I’ve used has helped to minimize the wrinkles. Since using the Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream my wrinkles are not that noticeable now. I never had the deep skin wrinkles but with this cream I can minimize the wrinkles before they start to deepen. 

Last sensitive skin healing moisturizer

Last Sensitive Skin Moisturizer: For Light and Non-Greasy Coverage – This is the perfect skin healing moisturizer for delicate, sensitive or oily skin. From blemishes, teenage or adult acne, to razor burn, hormonal breakouts or for use after skin resurfacing procedures, Last Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer is a lightweight cream that leaves your skin soft all day. Its natural anti-inflammatory and natural antibacterial properties help fight bacteria to improve skin tone, moisturize and help control oil production to leave skin silky soft. During the winter months my skin tends to stay dry and finding a cream or lotion that last and is not oily is a headache. With the Last Sensitive Skin Moisturizer I now do not have to worry about trying to find the right product. It leaves my skin feeling softer with no oiliness.

Stay protected with Poise® Thin-Shape Pads and #RecycleYourPeriodPad

Summer is right around the corner, and that means swimsuits, dresses, skirts and shorts! As moms who have children we know our bodies are never going to be like it was before kids. Our body changes and with those changes we may experience LBL also known as light bladder leakage. Come on, you can admit it. It’s normal nothing to be ashamed of.


What is LBL? That’s a good question. One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage, little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.

  • Weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Pregnancy
  • childbirth
  • weight gain

Those are just a few LBL contributors.

What causes LBL?

Just as no two women are the same, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:

  • Physical change from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
  • Being overweight
  • Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s Disease.
  • Bladder or UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
  • Badder irritants (certain foods or beverages)

Find the perfect product:

Poise® Pads and Liners are designed specifically for Light Bladder Leakage. They are super absorbent and have a thin-flex design for extraordinary protection that still 3x drier than period pads to help you take care of leaks with confidence. Women deserve the best options for managing LBL and Poise® has designed the Thin-Shape pads that are 40% thinner than the original Poise® pads that has a trusted absorbency of Poise® brand.

I recently started working out again and when I’m moving around a lot, sweating I know I can experience an accidentally LBL. With the Poise® Thin-Shape Pads I don’t have to worry, I can move around feeling confident that I can continue my daily exercises without running to the restroom. When I used to wear the other period pads they would bunch up or feel like you were wearing a diaper. I am glad to have found a product that is more discreet in protection. Even though I have other period pads taking up space in my cabinet I can use them instead of just throwing them out.

Here are a few ways I can use them:

Cleaning my windows, dusting my furniture or ceiling fans, wiping off my counters. Using them as coasters to place my drinks on my desk. I know having three kids there are always those bumps and bruises that sometimes a little something with cool effect will help their boo-boos. Try wetting the period pad and placing in the freezer for a bit until it feels a little stiff. These help and are great for the kids to use instead of the big ice packs or bags of ice that leak water . There are so many ways to #RecycleYourPeriodPad. How will you #RecycleyYourPeriodPad? Be creative.

Struggle with Acne? Try AcneFree 24 Hour Clearing System


It’s a common misconception that Acne ends when your teens do. So many teenagers dread going into those essential years for many reasons but the fear of acne is often at the top of the list. As adults we assure our teens that acne only last for a few years, supply them with helpful tips to help combat the skin condition and spend a fortune in acne medication throughout those tumultuous teenage years. What we don’t always tell our children is that acne can crop up at any time, even after high school has come and gone. As adults who suffer from the occasional outbreak of acne it’s important to know which products we can trust to help take care of the problem which is why when Life of a Southern Mom was chosen to work with AcneFree we simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity.


At AcneFree they know that Acne affections between 40-50 million people in the US and that it can be a nightmare to manage, in any of its 4 phases. This is why they’ve made it their mission to create products that range in application modes and active ingredient levels as well as systems that provide those who suffer from the condition a complete regime of moisturizers, cleansing, and treatment products. AcneFree also carries medications that contain a range of dermatologist-recommended effective acne treatment ingredients such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc. to adjust to the different needs of each acne sufferer.

For my review I was sent the AcneFree 24 Hour Acne Clearing System.

The AcneFree 24 Hour Acne Clearing System is clinically proven to be as effective as the popular acne brand, Proactive’s, 3 step program. The 3 Step Kit includes:

  • Oil-Free Purifying Cleanser, 
  • Renewing Toner
  •  Repair Lotion. 
In just 3 simple steps, 2 times a day, the user can experience cleaner skin with results in as little as 1-3 days. For people who suffer from acne and dread going out in public, this is the system to try. It contains an advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide formula that is designed to work faster and penetrate deep into pores.
