Quality Skincare Should Be Stress-Free

I always think myself is a super positive person, I love my life, I enjoy doing art, I laugh a lot, and I keep exploring… But this year makes me feel depressed a lot – why I can’t travel to visit my family, and why I have to wear masks to go anywhere. Although I didn’t say wearing masks isn’t right, I totally agree to keep safe for yourself and others by wearing the face coverings. I just feel stressful all the time, and realize a face – even I will still keep being positive, but I admit Life Is Not That Easy.

Because life is crazy enough, your skincare routine should be easy, quick, and effective. Life’s too short to waste time on multiple skincare products every morning and evening.

Clef’s revolutionary copper peptide mask combines the functions of nine different masks into ONE for a stress-free solution. This mask moisturizes, brightens, repairs, smoothes, tightens, nourishes, and heals your skin in one simple step.  Some great benefits you’ll see from these masks; fades acne scars, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation, visibly evens skin tone and improves texture and enhances skin for a luminous bare-faced glow. Use 2 boxes every month to achieve flawless skin!

COPPER PEPTIDE MASK (5 PIECES)

This super blend of nutrients offers fantastic benefits for the skin, including powerful anti-aging properties. For acne sufferers, it speeds up healing, helps to prevent scarring, and prevents future blemishes.

Clearly Basics Skincare Releases an Over the Counter Retinol in a New Formulation That Is 20% Stronger

If you have sensitive skin, it is very important to choose a nice skincare to take care of it. You may want to consider Clear Out + Protective Moisturizer as this moisturizer is designed to strengthen your skin and reduce potential irritation.

Clearly Basics, a specialty skincare line for acne-prone skin today announced the release of Clear Out Extra Strength, a new retinol solution that is 20% stronger in clearing clogs and improving skin texture. Clear Out Extra Strength combines retinol, salicylic acid and azelaic acid to flush out dead skin, calm redness and enhance skin texture. Customers with acne-prone skin now have a non-prescription option for outbreaks that are more difficult to get under control.

“Retinol is the dermatologist’s number one choice for fighting acne breakouts. We began our company with a balanced retinol product but found as we worked with thousands of acne-sufferers, that some simply needed more ingredient power to get clearer skin,” says Ron Kwok, CEO of Clearly Basics. “Balancing these three medical-grade ingredients in Clear Out Extra Strength brings a new capability to over-the-counter acne solutions.”

Features and benefits of Clear Out Extra Strength include:

  • Retinol–Flushes out dead skin cells, flattens bumpy skin, and boosts collagen.
  • Azelaic Acid–Naturally formed on the skin. AZA helps to calm redness, improves skin texture, and brightens the skin.
  • Salicylic Acid (BHA)—Reduces oily sheen, is an effective astringent and exfoliates the skin.

Clear Out Extra Strength will be available starting September 21, 2020 at $57.90. For more information on Clear Out Extra Strength visit https://tryclearly.com/shop/clearoutextrastrength/

Winter is coming and holiday is coming. It is the best timing to look for holiday gifts for your family, as well as for yourself. If you are struggling about men’s gifts, I would love to introduce the Sperry Legend Edit, a selection of John Legend’s favorite Sperry boat shoes, sneakers, and loafers.

Piff the Magic Dragon Theatre

 After seven months of sold-out virtual shows, Piff the Magic Dragon will be back for the real thing at Flamingo Las Vegas beginning Thursday, Oct. 29.
Piff has performed at the conveniently named “Piff the Magic Dragon Theatre” for the past five years, accompanied by his Las Vegas Showgirl partner Jade Simone and magic dog Mr. Piffles. All three are thrilled to be coming back to the Flamingo, this time in the larger Flamingo Showroom and will be able to accommodate an audience of 250 guests per show or less.
“This has been a tough time for all the great performers in Las Vegas,” says Piff, “Not to mention the audiences and the city itself. We’re going to follow applicable guidelines and take the recommended precautions, and if we can give people a good time and they leave a little bit happier than they arrived then I think it’ll be worth it. Also, the dog’s run up a huge gambling debt during lockdown so I have bills to pay.”
Piff has been busy the past few months working on brand new material that he will be unveiling alongside a selection of his favorite tricks as well as welcoming a fellow Las Vegas headliner as his special guest each night.
Piff will perform Thursday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, Oct. 29. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. PT at ticketmaster.com.
ABOUT PIFF THE MAGIC DRAGON:
Since breaking out on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and The CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us,” Piff the Magic Dragon has earned his rightful place as one of the greatest magic performing dragons currently working in Las Vegas today. With a dog.
Over the past few months, Piff vanished the Statue of Liberty with David Copperfield on NBC, taught tricks with Penn & Teller on “Try This At Home,” and emerged victorious from TBS’ comedy competition series, “Tournament of Laughs.” Yes. Somehow Piff prevailed against some of the biggest names in comedy including Jeff Ross, Margaret Cho, Gilbert Gottfried, Michael Rapaport, Jim Norton and Fortune Feimster.
It’s not just this year he’s been winning. In 2019, Piff was named one of the 10 Comics to Watch by Variety, won “Best Comedian,” “Best Magician” and “Best Headliner” in the Best of Las Vegas Awards AND was awarded the Casino Entertainment Award’s Casino Comedian of the Year. For an act that bills himself as The Loser of America’s Got Talent, this is getting awkward.
ABOUT FLAMINGO LAS VEGAS:
Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Flamingo Las Vegas is a true desert oasis. The center-Strip resort features more than 3,500 guest rooms and suites, including the recently renovated Flamingo Rooms and Suites, as well as new Bunk Bed Rooms and Suites. The historic hotel-casino is home to a sprawling 15-acre pool and wildlife habitat complete with waterfalls, mature island vegetation and tropical wildlife, distinctive pools including the adult GO Pool Dayclub, and several outdoor wedding gardens. Flamingo Las Vegas offers a variety of dining options with eateries such as Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville and Mexican hot spot Carlos ’n Charlie’s and the latest addition and the newly opened, vintage-inspired Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse. The resort also hosts an all-star line-up of entertainers including Piff the Magic Dragon, the late-night adult revue X Burlesque, An Evening with Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert and RuPaul’s Drag Race LIVE! Las Vegas. Flamingo Las Vegas is operated by a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR). For more information, please visit flamingolasvegas.com or the Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas media room. Find Flamingo Las Vegas on Facebook and follow on Twitter and Instagram.
