Last month we had our 4th annual Best Beauty Buys for Moms Event with Bump Club and Beyond, presented by Clarins, Phyto and Bath & Body Works. Moms and moms-to-be gathered at the Argent Restaurant for a night of beauty treatments (manicures, brow waxes, chair massages and micro-derm facials) powered by PrettyQuick, food, mocktails and cocktails, a presentation of my spring beauty must-haves, raffles prizes and gift bags galore. Everyone left with more than $200 worth of beauty products! To name a few: Cocktail Fragrance Bubble Bath, Jouer and Cargo lip glosses, Aveeno baby products, B. Kamins skincare, Rosebud lip salve, Bath & Body Works fragrance, Phyto hair de-frizzer, GoSwype antibacterial wipes, Clarins body oil and stretch mark control cream and the list goes on. Here are some photo highlights and a slideshow, courtesy of Tk Photography, showcasing the evening’s festivities.

Having an 18 month old and another on the way (I’m due May 11th!), I feel like I’ve been pregnant for the past two years. That said, I’m very selective with what I put on my skin. Clarins is a brand that I feel confident using because they’re devoted to working with plant extracts to create effective formulas. One of my new favorites is their Double Serum. It just launched in February but is 27 years in the making. Researchers had 200 different plant extracts at their fingertips and chose the 20 most powerful that work together to hydrate, protect and strengthen the skin. Green banana, burdock, kiwi, arnica and quinoa are some that made the cut. One pump distributes enough product for the entire face, and I love how the serum absorbs right in. Skin won’t feel tacky or wet — you can immediately follow with makeup or layer with a moisturizer or sunblock. Plus, its faint floral aroma is so soothing, I find myself going back for second and third sniffs. Or, maybe I should chalk that up to another weird pregnancy craving.
I’m giving 2 people the chance to win Double Serum — an $85 value! To enter to win this giveaway: comment on this post, like thebeautygirl.com on facebook or follow me on twitter and RT the message. Good luck!

Fragrance always seems top of mind around Valentine’s Day. So, I figured, why not give away a scent I love and that’s made in my backyard, Chicago.
Tru Blooms Chicago is a fresh floral. It’s no surprise it smells like a garden because it’s made with notes of rose, lavender, white oriental lily and violet that have been taken from local Chicago gardens. The overall effect is not too heavy, not too sweet but a light, crisp aroma anyone can wear day or night.
I’m giving 2 people the chance to win a bottle ($65).
