You’re checking your list. You’re checking it twice.
You’re planning gifts whether they’ve been naughty or nice. You’re busy with work/school/kids/home/pets/LIFE! You wonder, “How will I be able to do it all this holiday season?” You, my friend, you need an elf.
I give you permission to slow down. Take a breath. Sit quietly. Enjoy the moment. I’m the elf with a little something in my holiday gift sack to help you out with everybody on your list.
This year you can give the gift of safer, affordable, better-for-you products for you and your loved ones. Products that harness the power of nature to bring your skin exactly what it needs, without the use of those nasty ingredients like phthalates, parabens, DEA, sulfates, mineral oils, chemical sunscreens, and synthetic fragrances. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Here’s what I’ve got in my sack for you:
For the Grown-Up Ladies…
Now through November 19th at 11:59pm CT we are offering a free PARTNER IN TIME Age-Defying Serum with the purchase of a HY+5 Regimen. This gift with purchase is available for both one-time purchases or No-Brainer Replenishment orders. This is the gift that gives and gives. I use PARTNER IN TIME as part of my night-time routine. I also apply it to the backs of my hands every morning. Oh, how I wish I had taken before/after photos of my hands! It’s a guilty pleasure and the product we offer with the highest concentration of our HY+5 Complex™. Take that wrinkles and fine lines!
BORN TO GLOW Skin Elixir is another wonderful indulgent item that everyone’s skin loves! Use it after washing and before moisturizing to give your skin an extra boost of moisture. Use it on your cuticles, elbows, toes and heels – anywhere your skin could use a little extra TLC.
For the Grown-Up Men…
Yes! Men all across the land are Willing too! START FRESH Foaming Face Washis a favorite for shaving. In fact, some say they’ve never had a finer shave! Men are sneaking into their wives and kids stash of PEEL AWAY Charcoal Masks so they too can have soft, glowing skin. In fact, I know a fellow whose wife has had to limit him to using it only once a week, as he wanted to use it once a day! He loves feel of his skin after the mask. Many men are using the HY+5 and the willa regimens as part of their daily routine and begging their wives to keep them stocked up.
For the Teens and Tweens…
The willa line is perfect to get your child started with a good skin-care regimen. The Clear Skin Regimen is perfect for the child who battles breakouts. The Essentials Regimenworks well for the child who has only occasional breakouts. The ZERO SHINE Mattifying Moisturizer is well loved by my friend’s 15 year old who cares about his skin but prefers not to look like he cares about his skin. FACE THE DAY SPF 30 Tinted Protection is perfect for kids to use when learning the importance of protecting their skin from sun damage.
We have four-packs of all the favorites! Each are Buy 3 Get 1 Free, so they are easy on the gift giving budget. They make great stocking stuffers as well as hostess and thank you gifts this holiday season and beyond. Choose from the XO Lip Oil Mulit-Pack (2 original and 2 peppermint,) DAYDREAM Illuminating Day Moisturizer, PEAL AWAY Charcoal Mask and TAKE ACTION Acne Spot Treatment Pen(which I keep in my purse to use the moment I feel a blemish starting.) In packs of four, you can cover a lot of gifting ground!
Wait, There’s More!
All of our regimens purchased between November 1 and December 20 will ship in our gorgeous new holiday packaging. You don’t have to wrap it, just add a bow and a gift tag and you’re all set! And remember, between now and November 15, the HY+5 Regimen ships with a bonus PARTNER IN TIME.

It’s that time of year when parents purchase school supplies and the kidlets grab their backpacks and head back to school. It’s a time for new clothes, new notebooks, new shoes, new pencils and pens, new book covers (do kids still use book covers?) and the inevitable first day of school angst.
It’s tough to be a kid! Especially a kid on the first day of school. Choosing the perfect outfit, styling the coolest style, rockin’ the clear skin…Wait, how do you do that? How many of you got up excited on the first day of school only to find a new pimple had formed overnight? Or worse, it appeared on school picture day! What is a kid to do?
My first pimples arrived at age 12. I’d like to say they have gone away, but a few times a year, one pops up and reminds me that they are still out there, watching, waiting to ruin a perfectly good day. I had little to fight them except a horrible product that dried the offending area out so that it looked worse than when I started. I always ended up piling makeup and cover-up on to try to deflect from the issue. It didn’t work.
When this happens to a kid, it can be devastating. Enter the willa line of products from Willing Beauty. We offer a variety of better for you products to help tweens and teens get the upper-hand against pimples and blemishes while learning the importance of a good skin care regimen. The willa line is made to the same standards as the HY+5 Regimen, making it a kinder, safer approach to teen and tween skin care.
The Essentials Regimen is a gentle “starter set” to get kids going in their skin care regimen. This set is all about prevention and developing good habits. It is perfect for tweens as well as teens who have fewer issues with acne and blemishes. For the occasional blemish, the TAKE ACTION Acne Spot Treatment pen is a perfect companion. Kids (and adults) can keep one at home and one in their backpack (or purse) so they are always ready to stop blemishes in their tracks. I never leave home without mine!
The Clear Skin Regimen battles everything from blemishes to full-on acne. It was created especially for blemish-prone skin. It treats, soothes and protects leaving kids with healthier skin. Oh, how I wish I’d had that when I was 14!
What do you do if your kidlet isn’t into skin care? What if he or she doesn’t want to take a bath more than once a month, let alone wash their face twice a day? Everything in the willa line can be purchased ala cart. Find the product that they WILL use, and take baby steps with them. This too shall pass, really!
During the month of August 2017, we are offering a special on all of our regimens. You can choose either The Essentials Regimen or Clear Skin Regimen AND receive a FREE XO Lip Oil for just $48! That is a $32 savings! When you sign up for our No-Brainer Replenishment at the time of purchase, you will receive a special code in September to lock in the $48 price for the life of your replenishment. The last day to order is August 31, so don’t delay! The prices on the website are already marked down to make it easy. The free gift will automatically be added to your order. How awesome is that?
What happens when your kidlet starts using these products, falls in love with them, and starts telling all their friends about it? Kids 14 or older can become a willa Boy or a willa Girl! What a great way to share the better for you skin care love while earning money for things like class rings, car insurance, cool designer clothes that mom and dad don’t want to buy, school jackets, prom and college!
You may visit my website to learn more about willa the girl and product line (yes, she is a real girl!). Got questions about the products or how to become a willa Boy or a willa Girl? Contact me on Facebook. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have! If you’d like to hang out, join my Facebook Group, we have a lot of fun!
Here’s to a healthier, happier you!
I’m a busy girl. I’m rockin’ and rollin’ all day long, and when I get home at night I want nothing more than to change into my jammies, curl up and relax. I don’t want to be bogged down with a complicated skin care regimen. One of the things I love about Willing Beauty’s regimens is that they are SO simple to use! Three steps in the morning, three steps at night, and they take less than 5 minutes. I am more than willing to commit to that kind of routine! (See what I did there?)
HY+5 Regimen Morning
Step 1 is the cleansing. In the morning, I hop into the shower, wash my hair, apply conditioner, and then wash my face with DO OVER Nourishing Cleanser. I love this cleanser! When I was a kid, I was always told my skin wasn’t clean until it felt tight. No more! It smells so…clean, and it does not make my face feel tight after I’ve used it. In fact, the first day I used it, I washed my face twice because I thought maybe I didn’t use enough!
Step 2 is to moisturize with DAYDREAM Illuminating Day Moisturizer. This stuff is so yummy! It comes out of the tube thin, so you think, “I’m going to need a lot of this.” That is not the case. A little goes a long way. A pea size amount takes care of my face and my neck/chest (because we should always cleanse and moisturize there too!) It absorbs nicely and doesn’t leave any kind of “moisturizer feeling” behind.
Step 3 is the GET SET SPF 30 Tinted Primer. Again, a little goes a long way. Slightly tinted to help give a smooth appearance to your skin, this product has better for you SPF to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. You can use it alone or follow up with makeup.
Easy Peasy! Less than 5 minutes (not counting the shower time, because I take a seven-ten minute shower.)
HY+5 Regimen Evening
I don’t take an evening shower, usually, so we can skip the shower time. The evening routine is just as simple and just as effective.
Step 1 is cleansing my wash my face with DO OVER Nourishing Cleanser. It washes away the day and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.
Step 2 is to moisturize with PARTNER IN TIME Ave Defying Night Serum. Like the DAYDREAM, it out of the tube thin, but a little goes a long way and you immediately feel the difference. This product has a little extra oomph, so it works it’s magic while you sleep. Again, a pea size amount takes care of my face and my neck/chest. It too absorbs nicely and doesn’t leave any kind of “moisturizer feeling” behind.
Step 3 is my little secret weapon, the SLEEPOVER Replenishing Night Cream. Thicker and creamy feeling, it too does not require a lot. It seals in the PARTNER IN TIME goodness while giving yet another boost of HY+5 action. It absorbs nicely and doesn’t leave that icky “I’ve got thick moisturizer on my face” feeling.
Again, less than 5 minutes and super simple!
HY+5 Regimen Morning Modified
I have VERY dry skin. Even living in the humid state of Florida, you can look at my arms and legs and see that I could possibly be reptilian. I’m not, I just have dry, scaly skin! I have adjusted the daily HY+5 Regimen to accommodate my moisture needs. Thus, my personal regimen is 5 easy steps.
Step 1, cleanse with DO OVER.
Step 2, after cleansing I use the BORN TO GLOW Skin Elixir, a wonderful mix of luscious oils that gives my skin that extra attention it needs. A few drops go a long way. I use it around my eyes and mouth, my forehead, and neck.
Step 3 is DAYDREAM.
Step 4 is a tiny amount of SLEEPOVER Replenishing Night Cream. Honestly, the tiniest bit.
Step 5 is the GET SET SPF 30 Tinted Primer.
How did I come upon this combo? I played with the products and amounts for a couple days until I landed on the combination that left me feeling fresh and hydrated all day long. And it still takes me less than 5 minutes. Easy Peasy!!
