Sometimes, your skin can be frustrating—especially if you’re battling both acne and early signs of aging. To help battle this combo Murad has two brand new launches that they’ve added to their Anti-Aging Acne line, formulated to simultaneously target both hormonal acne and the visible signs of aging: Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer and Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum │SPF 30 PA+++. These two products, along with their best-selling Time Release Acne Cleanser, are a triple threat against acne and fine lines and wrinkles.

This cleanser is pure perfection for my skin. I always struggle to keep my skin clear this time of year. With the warmer weather my combo skin is very blemish prone. This gel cleanser is mild and has a very refreshing scent. It leaves my skin feeling clean without drying it out. The cooles part is its a time released formula, so it keeps fighting acne even after I rinse my face.

This is a huge bottle and a little goes a long way, definitely a great value.

Step 1: Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser
This high-performance, anti-aging acne cleanser featuring sustained-release Salicylic Acid helps clear skin and restore youthfulness. Solution continues to work even after rinsing.

This high-performance solution includes an innovative anti-acne treatment technology that continues to work even after you rinse it off. Proven to reduce acne while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Such a genius idea to combat adult acne and aging all in one tube. One of my favorites from this line. I have seen a huge improvement in clarity and the fine lines around my eyes and mouth have softened.

A very lightweight gel  its spreads easily and absorbs instantly leaving no residue or dryness. It works great and hasn’t caused any issues for my sensitive skin which is pretty amazing. Definitely a go to product in my daily routine from now on.

New! Kiehl’s Sun Protection in 3 new formulas

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly introduces 3 NEW sun-protection formulas, ensuring both face and body are fully protected until the sun sets! I’ve attached press releases for more details and hi-res images are in the links at the bottom of this e-mail, and the line-up includes skincare for daily use, for eye protection, and for active or beach use:

Super-Fluid-UV_125ml_RENO

A must have for summer. I love this ultra thin lotion it absorbs quickly, smells great and leaves a matte finish on my skin. Perfect for my combo skin this paraben free sunscreen doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I use this prior to my makeup everyday to create a great base that feels good and protects my skin from sun damage.

Super Fluid UV 50ml
First up, for daily use: an improved formula of Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, a lightweight paraben-free formula that’s silky, non-greasy and leaves a matte finish on the skin. This formula is made for daily use, and creates a matte base alone, or under makeup, and is an efficient addition to your morning skincare regimen, ensuring that you’re protected every day. $38-$61.

201502_Clearly-Corrective-Dark-Circle-Perfector-SPF30_lg

Keihl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector wears like a BB cream. The formula is super light and blends easily. The touch of color instantly brightens my under eye area. The caffeine helps reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Between long summer nights and allergies this has been a lifesaver. It’s a great concealer that leaves my eyes looking brighter and more awake and not made up. On top of all that it has SPF  30 to protect my skin from sun damage!

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30
Instantly brightens and perfects the delicate eye area, reduces discoloration, and protects against future damage with SPF 30. The pigmented formula instantly brightens your under-eye area while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Activated Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, while caffeine helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. $38.

Kiehls_AquaLotion_SPF30

I usually opt for spray sunscreens as I find a lot of lotions are so heavy and don’t absorb well. Kiehl’s has changed my opinion with their Activated Sun Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Lotion. Its so incredibly lightweight and true to its name feels more like water than a lotion.

The lotion is so thin and light it was a breeze to apply and didn’t leave any residue. And with Broad Spectrum SPF30 it provides unbeatable protection. I use this on my face and body its so lightweight and doesn’t cause breakouts or leave any sticky feeling. And along with protecting my skin it contains antioxidants to repair my skin while it protects. I won’t be heading outdoors this summer without this in my bag.

Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body
Formulated with an advanced combination of sun-filters to provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a unique water-like texture that feels weightless on skin. Antioxidant Vitamin E helps condition skin, as the formula transforms to a water-like, weightless texture on skin, leaving it smooth, refreshed and protected.

Review: HCF – Happy Calm Focused Brain Supplement

hcf

I was given the chance to try HCF for a month and went in with an open mind. I figured at best I might feel a bit better at worst I took a supplement for a month that at least gave me a vitamin boost. Well after the first 2 weeks I could really feel the difference. Now this isn’t the wham bam abrupt change like a caffeine supplement or similar would give you. This is a daily supplement that creates daily long term benefits not a temporary high then crash.

I’m a single full time mom to 3 kids 10 and under and am self employed. So you can say I know what it feel like to be stressed, cranky and unable to focus. I am really excited about how the great this pill worked to help deal with my daily stressors. There wasn’t a pill I took that made me feel like a new person but day by day as I took my supplement I found I was changing for the better. The first thing I noticed was I was much happier, even when I had a hard day I seemed to be able to stay positive and keep a grin on my face. I also was keeping calm, calm to the point where sometimes it made me smile that I didn’t get all frazzled by little issues. And last but not least Focused! I struggle with ADD and focus is always an issue for me. Especially having ADD and working on the internet for a living. So many rabbit holes!!

This pill won’t make you look 10 years younger or 20 lbs thinner overnight. But one of the things I love about this pill is that it doesn’t make crazy claims that are all smoke and mirrors. It’s not a magic bean but it has helped me stay happier, calmer and so much more focused throughout my day. And for this mom that feels a bit like magic some days. This will definitely be a supplement I keep as part of my daily regime.

HCF Happy Calm Focused Brain Supplement $39.95
HCF® Happy, Calm & Focused® is an original, pure and effective dietary supplement, considered one of the most exciting discoveries in brain supplementation in decades!*

The advantage HCF has over other brain supplements is that typical brain supplements rely on high dose ’50 ingredients-in-1′ glorified multi-vitamins or just herbs to artificially give your brain a lift, while HCF supports feeding your brain’s own neurotransmitters with what it is ‘suppose to have’ – F&Q amino acids. These two powerful key amino acids are found in whole-food proteins like fish, milk, cheese and turkey. F&Q works by supporting the increase of “feel good” neurotransmitter levels responsible for helping you feel happy, calm and focused every single day.

FQ-is-Different-small

Phenylalanine (F) is an amino acid of tremendous nutritional importance and a known nutritional precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline) and involved in the release of PEA, phenylethylamine which can sensitize endorphin receptors to endorphins. These neurotransmitters strongly support warm feelings of love, pleasure, happiness, alertness, energy, motivation, memory, attention, internal calmness, and sleep to name just a few.*

L-Glutamine (Q) is an amino acid and a major precursor for the neurotransmitter GABA, or gamma amino butyric acid. This crucial amino acid helps the mind relax and “tone down” unwanted “mind chatter” which can sharpen a person’s ability to focus and concentrate with more clarity.*

Associated Neuro-Nutrients are what make HCF so highly effective. These absolute, and precise levels of synergistic vitamins, minerals and other nutrients support the F&Q “key” amino-acids to pass through your BBB and finally nutritionally feed your brain.*
