School is about to get back in session! Get ready with the best skincare and makeup tools to achieve that pulled-together look.

Mornings are busy and there is just so little time for makeup, which is why we’ve chosen some multi-tasking Merle Norman products that you need before Meet the Teacher Night.

Get an A+ look with these 5 products:

  1. Skin Refining CleanserFor all skin types. Cleanse and tone in one easy step! This formula polishes skin as it cleans. Rounded polybeads gently exfoliate leaving skin smoother and more refined while a special cleansing agent removes impurities. The water-soluble formula rinses off easily leaving skin clean and healthy-looking. 

  1. CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30. CC stands for complexion corrector, which is a multi-benefit complexion corrector that gives you the benefits of a skin care product, sunscreen and light foundation – all in one. After being in the sun all summer, you may need to update your foundation color. Our beauty experts can help you find the right foundation for your skintone.

  1. Lip Pencil Plus. Another 2-in-1 that we love is our versatile Lip Pencil Plush with ⅔ lip color and ⅓ lipliner. It provides full coverage and long-wearing color in a semi-matte finish.

  1. Lasting Cheekcolor. You need blush that lasts until the last bell rings right? This silky powder formula provides stay-true, fade-resistant color that glides on smoothly and blends easily.

  1. Wicked Lash Mascara. Oh the miracle of mascara! This is our award-winning mascara with an oversized brush for maximum impact leaving a beautiful curl with amazing volume.

Neck and shoulder pain can be related to a number of things such as sleeping positions, not stretching before a workout, excessive computer use, bad posture or stress. Some of our clients with chronic neck and shoulder pain have found relief from stress and migraines with the help of consistent massage therapy.
