Skin Vitality $10,000 10 Years Younger Contest: My Cinderella Story and Win Skin Vitality SWAG

Mid January I received a phone call that changed my life. I found out I was one of the 5 winners of the Skin Vitality $10,000 10 Years Younger Contest.  That was the first conversation of many that changed how I feel, how I look, and gave a the gift of youth that most women only dream of. Entry was only a recent photo and story as to why I deserved a makeover and judges made the decision (based on the info submitted).

How do I feel!! Fantastic, honoured, and still fuzzy. Maybe it was all the champagne last night. Honestly, I feel fantastic inside and out. Willy went to every appointment with me and documented the entire journey. I am so proud of myself, and I know Willy is proud of me. We really make quite the team. I am still struggling with the right words on how to describe my experience. I still pinch myself to make sure that it is me, and this really happened.

The Skin Vitality provided the most amazing treatments which included: Photofacial, Botox, Soft Lip, Skin Tightening, Fraxel,  and Chemical Peels. Minimized are the wrinkles. Broken capilliaries and discolourations are gone!! Included were hair, teeth, wardrobe, cosmetics, and photo shoots. I was treated to not one, but two days with David Clemmer from Style By Jury.   He provided fun, humorous, but constructive criticism providing tips how I should dress, and what I can wear.  I finally realize I can wear belts, and fitted garments and look fashionable, comfortable, and if I don’t mind saying so myself,  pretty darn hot!!  Hey, it’s not every day you get a man to dress you. I highly recommend it.

    Amazing results! A motivation to others to think of themselves at the same time of thinking of the ones near and dear to us. Most of us forget to take care of ourselves because we are so busy taking care of others. Looking at your pictures makes us realise how important we are to our loved ones.

    Thanks for sharing.
