Pur Attitude Anti-aging Skincare Review

My first taste of Pur Attitude's skincare collection came about when I received their Face Lift Gel in a New Beauty TestTube mailing (I've been a subscriber for years). I loved the packaging because you can actually see the product inside and know how much you start off with and how much is left as you use it. I'm picky about things like this when it comes to skincare because it seems like a lot of brands try to hide their product behind fancy packaging. It's the product that should be speaking for itself, right? I emailed Pur Attitude and asked if they'd send me a few of their products I was most curious about. As you know, I'm always looking out for the best wellness products for you, especially when it comes to my Quarterly Box mailings, which ALWAYS include fit skincare. I really love how the Face Lift Gel I got from New Beauty's TestTube (great for applying before you do your makeup) made my face feel really tight upon application but I wanted to try some of their other...

LED Light Therapy: Look Younger, Better!

We've all heard of LED Lights and seen them as part of Christmas decorations and blinking signage. But did you know LED lights, originally developed by NASA, are doing lots of good in the beauty and health worlds? I'm so excited to bring you this report because this technology offers a relatively inexpensive way to look younger and get fitter. My favorite items are the anti-aging wands and mask but seriously all of them are wonderful and work well. Check out the video below... LED Lights are essentially wavelengths of colored light energy and each color does something different. Some colors are more therapeutic than others. The research is fun to do and I had a blast testing many devices on myself but I have to be honest and say I wish I could've tested even more colors and gadgets. If you happen to know of ones I don't mention here, please let me know in the comments section.  The LED light products you'll read about here are all under $100 and exceptionally easy to...

How I Treated My Frown Lines!

Yup, you may have never noticed but I had frown lines, and you better believe I had them taken care of and continue to do so. I won’t play coy with you and pretend like I’m above it because my looks matter to me. I always want to look my best for my self-esteem and for all the Instagram pictures I take! Just kidding! It’s not something I do for social media although I like looking good for my followers...who doesn’t? It comes from a desire to look as youthful as I feel. I’ve always been an energetic, on-the-go type of person, even during my advertising days when I used to write and art direct TV commercials. That’s actually when my frown lines started to appear, around 29 years old. At the time, I was working very long hours. Sometimes until 4am! I was working for the best advertising agency in the world so there was no other option than giving 500%.  I was definitely stressed and my work hours were aging me. Staring into a computer screen designing...

2 Steps to Clean Skin

My skin is everything to me.  I’ve always been obsessed with having clear skin. My good friends joke that I have the most skincare products they’ve ever seen. It’s all because I have fun testing out different products until I find what works. But I also believe that having great skin requires daily conditioning. Nope, not the kind of conditioner you put in your hair. I’m talking about the kind of conditioning you do at the gym…y’know, where you actually put some effort into it! Day to night maintenance—it’s a regimen I swear by. Just like I never miss my daily workout, I never skimp on my skincare routine. I never go to bed with makeup on and I always prep my face with nourishing serums, oils and moisturizers depending on the season. A lot goes into my skin-game but to keep it simple, I've partnered with Pulsaderm to share a couple of quick and easy steps for guaranteed younger looking, clear skin. I practice these steps every day without fault and...

My "Flat Stanley" Skincare Secret + A Giveaway!

You're like Flat Stanley, whaaaa? But yes, I have a FLAT approach to skincare that I want to share with you today that literally saves my life every time I travel. Maybe you're like me...maybe you're not, but I can't seem to avoid packing everything I own when preparing for a trip. I worry that I won't have what I need and as a frugalista, I don't want to buy what I already own while away from home. Does this sound familiar? Even if it doesn't (and if so, I'm jealous that you've mastered being a sane packer), I think this tip might come in handy. Also, it's worth the read considering I'm giving away some skincare swag. So here's my Flat Stanley Skincare Secret: I seek out skincare that's packaged flat and in single servings. I like the idea of using it then pitching it. The lighter my toiletries bag gets, the better! Fact of my life: my toiletry bag + makeup bag + hair dryer and roundbrushes = most of the weight in my suitcase. I know, I'm a sad, sad girl. But seriously, have...
