The Marks of Motherhood ~Plus~ SkinMedica #Giveaway (9/30)

I am sure a variety of words come to mind when you think of your marks of motherhood like stretch marks, dark eye circles, and generous love handles. We all know the price our bodies pay for our little ones are worth it and if we knew exactly how it would change us we would still do it all over again. Yet, it can be frustrating. Very frustrating. I am still 20 pounds heavier than my pre-mommy days and sometimes it is frustrating to look in my closet or go through old clothing that I can’t even get over my hips let alone get 6 inches from buttoning. I won’t lie, the thought of a tummy tuck has crossed my mind a number of times. What “quick fix” have you entertained?

Nonetheless, even outside of the financial reasons I don’t think I would go to that drastic of measures at this point, yet, wouldn’t it be incredible to just snap your fingers and have your old body back? I have the opportunity to offer one lucky reader some SkinMedica products that are top-of-the-line skin care products regularly featured in the media. The first of the two options for the giveaway, TSN Line Refine and the TNS Lip Plump System (RV $130), are top picks by magazines and media for non-surgical alternatives to younger looking skin and the alternate prize choice includes Retinol Complex and Ultra Sheer Moisturizer (RV $110) which offer firmer, smoother skin.

I have no idea how much cosmetic surgery costs, but I do know that even the seemingly high retail value of the SkinMedica products are a mere fraction of the cost. And I would imagine they would work significantly better than over-the-counter alternatives and have seemed to get rave reviews in the media. Now they just need to come out with a fat melting lotion and I’d be all set! So go ahead an try your luck in the giveaway or check out the SkinMedica products to see if they would be a good compromise to otherwise drastic measures for you.

This giveaway is sponsored by La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre. I have not used the products offered in the giveaway, but I sure hope you enjoy them!
