It’s official, I’m in love with PUR Attitude

pur-attitude-wild-durian-fruit-peel

I am FREAKING OBSESSED with these two products! I’ve been using them together for about three weeks now – and HELLO LOVELY! Love it! My skin is rejoicing…which says a lot, considering how freaking cold it is here. Seriously – it’s COLD! When I got up this morning it was 18 degrees! I know a lot of you deal with cold weather – but us Oregonians have it pretty easy. We don’t get major heat or cold. Lately – it’s been insanely cold. Like freeze your butt off before you get to the car, cold.

Anyway, my skin needs help. Enter PUR!

Introducing PUR’s new Energizing Oxygen Serum! Bio-active technology to stimulate cell renewal has been scientifically proven to breathe new life into dull skin. This new serum from PUR attitude increases cellular metabolism as much as 754% and naturally supports skin revitalization by 25% in just two weeks. This process can leave skin looking healthy and more radiant.

“Cellular respiration is a vital process in the acceleration of cell renewal and the overall health of your skin,” said PUR attitude Founder David Pollock. “As the chemist behind high-performing products developed during my career for so many brands, I’ve seen everything that actually works in skin care and studied the science behind it. Oxygenating your skin is one of the most important things you can do to give it the support it needs to stay younger-looking longer.”

Energizing Oxygen Serum is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. This serum also features algae extract, which works to nourish and firm the skin, ceramides to promote a synergistic effect with the skin, and a paraben-free preservative system.

Energizing Oxygen Serum is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of $75. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used twice daily). For more information, visit www.PURattitude.com.

Also, you must check out PUR’s Wild Durian Fruit Peel. The product is clinically proven to visibly even out skin tones, wipe away fine lines, and restore vitality and brightness for more youthful looking skin. Due to the activation of rare wild durian fruit, known for its pungent aroma and revered for its advanced anti-aging properties, this product is able to produce these powerful results on the skin without irritation.

“I first came across wild durian during my travels to Southeast Asia. I was so curious about the many health benefits the locals claimed about the fruit,” said Founder David Pollock. “Anyone who has been following my work in the world of beauty will know how strongly I have come to believe in the power of Mother Nature when it comes to skin care. As a chemist, I am constantly in awe at how the skin can be nourished by natural ingredients in a way that harsh chemicals simply cannot perform, long-term. PUR attitude’s Hyaluronix is the perfect natural agent to deliver these incredible ingredients into the skin.”

Wild Durian Fruit Peel is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. These natural ingredients are combined with pure glucosamine, ceramides, as well as extracts of orange, apple, and green tea to detoxify impurities, exfoliate lifeless skin, and unclog pores.

Wild Durian Fruit Peel is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of $75. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used twice daily). For more information, visit www.PURattitude.com.

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette

CYMERA_20131126_184521

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette is one of my favorite holiday palettes I have tried this season. It  includes twenty eye shadows, two blushes, two bronzers,  a full-sized Lip Injection Color Bomb, and a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara.

The 20 eye shadows are made up of 5 matte finish, and 15 metallic/shimmer shadows. I love the shadows in this palette they are super smooth and very pigmented. The shadows went on so easy and most wear for at least 8hrs.

The blushes and bronzers in this set are great. Really smooth and super pigmented I was impressed how long wearing they are.  The standouts to me are Melt into Spring a gorgeous soft pink and Sun Bunny #1 my new favorite bronzer.

On top of all the great shadows you also get two of their top sellers Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bee Sting a perfect pale pink and one of my faves Better Than Sex Mascara. All this and a matching travel bag, it would make the perfect Christmas gift!

Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum

CYMERA_20131125_162850

I have a few age spots that drive me nuts but the worst is the one on my nose. By the end of summer even with constant sunblock it was really dark. I was interested to see how well the Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum would work to reduce its appearance.

In the picture below on the top you can see before I started using the product. My age spot is much darker then the photo shoes but the age spot on my nose is quite noticeable even with makeup. I took the bottom picture 2 weeks after I had started using the Rapid Age Spot serum and as you can see my age spot is barely noticeable. Both photos are without any makeup or concealer I am so happy with the results!

I have also started to notice more freckles on my chest and the back of my hands so I started using a bit of the serum there as well and it works! If you are looking for a age spot treatment and don’t want to wait to see the results this is the serum for you.
