Once it’s officially spring, we tend to kick our bikini body fitness routine into overdrive. (Juice cleanse, treadmill workouts. Let’s kick it up a notch.) What if I told you that there’s a new product that is dedicated to speeding up the process? Heck yes! Enter Clarins Body Fit – a cellulite contouring cream formula that helps visibly reduce cellulite. Clarins is challenging me to test out their newest product to see if I can get firmer, toner looking skin just right in time for my next beach vacay!
Consider this product the extra step in your fitness routine that you never knew you needed. And after taking a few weeks off from my regular Tread BR classes due to travel, I’m definitely ready for a new jumpstart! I’ve already started using it, and it smells SO good you guys. I apply after dry brushing, and it’s almost like a luxurious spa appointment at home. Here’s one of those #treatyoself kind of moments while banishing cellulite – I think we can all get on board with that!
Have you guys tried any sort of home treatments for cellulite contouring or skin firmness? Would love to hear what you guys think. And of course, I’ll be sure to share some updates and results to this post later!

In case you missed my first juice cleanse review post, you can see it HERE + my post about why I first decided to try a juice cleanse HERE. In terms of online juice cleanses, I have tried Juice From the Raw twice now, and I have been happy with the fresh delivery and the juices both times! (Available on Amazon too.)
Before this past cleanse, I was drinking one to two juices a day to help transition into the full swing of things. My go-to daily juices that are pretty easy to work into any daily schedule are a sweet greens juice and a beet and/or carrot juice – normally called a root juice. My advice – start your cleanse on a weekday like Monday so that you aren’t faced with all of the weekend temptations!
Monday | Day One:
I always start my day off with a coffee, so starting off the morning with the Juice From The Raw Cashew Coffee is a delicious option. It’s not as strong as the coffee I normally drink, so I add my cold-brew to it so that I don’t crash later in the day. Juice two is always the hardest for me. It’s the spicy lemonade with cayenne pepper and maple syrup. I CANNOT make myself like this juice. I never finish a full bottle – always about half before I move on to my green juice.
The sweet greens juice is never hard for me to drink, but it’s also not quite as filling as my usual mid-morning snack. This is where I cheated and ate cashews and almonds. I figure they are raw, so it can’t be THAT bad, right? I was actually kind of excited because the Juice From the Raw Pineapple Mint juice is my FAVORITE. I also really like root juices that are beet based, so dinner time wasn’t that bad.
Around 8-9 pm, I was feeling hangry, but not the I-want-tacos kind of hangry. Just a little uneasy and wishing I could chew… anything. I ate some carrots and went to bed early – like 9 pm early because Jordan made dinner and the house smelled delicious. Day One was FAR easier this time around than my very first cleanse when I wanted to faceplant at 2 pm. I attribute it to getting used to integrating juice into my normal routine before starting – definitely made the transition easier.
My tip for Day 1 – If you have to cheat, make sure it’s an acceptable raw food.

Because this whole working-out-every-morning thing is so new to me – I’ve had a few things to learn along the way. One of them being – do NOT go run errands after spin class because you WILL see everyone you now in the process. Rookie mistake. To save face during errand runs and literally save my face from breakouts, I’ve come up with a list of my favorite post-workout beauty essentials. They fall into five different categories of gym bag beauty products for those days you want to go from barre to brunch.
From face-cleansing wipes to hair refresh sprays, you’ll also find a few necessary post-gym makeup essentials like light-coverage skin tints. Because the last thing you want to do after sweating is cake on a thick foundation. What are your gym bag heros? I’d love to get some suggestions and hear your favorite on-the-go favorites! #beautygamestrong

I’ve mentioned this before, but I love trying skincare products just as much as I love shopping for shoes. I’m a product hoarder of sorts, and my main vice? Face masks. I recently realized just how many that I’ve accumulated over the past year and thought – wait, I should post about this! So today, I’m sharing the best face masks in my skincare arsenal including WHEN and WHY you should use them.
The list ranges from oil-zapping to pore detoxing and sensitive skin friendly to just plain fun to apply. I’ve tested every single one and even made Jordan try a few of these too. Whoops, he probably won’t like that I’m sharing that haha.
I hope this list gives you an idea of where to start when it comes to finding face masks right for your skin!
