Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum

CYMERA_20131126_185014

After a month of using Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum my skin is feeling and looking fantastic. Within the first week of use my skin was noticeably smoother, brighter and just had a healthy glow. I have very pale skin and with the lack of sun in the Pacific NW this time of year I usually look like I live under a rock. But this serum has really saved my skin, it has helped with the random dry spots I get and I just love how bright and healthy my skin looks. As an avid user of foundation I am surprised I find myself going out with little or no foundation on now that my skin looks so much better.

The serum is ultra light and spreads really easy so you don’t need much for great coverage. The light floral scent is really pretty and my skin just drinks this stuff in. If you are looking for something to brighten and rejuvenate your skin this is your serum! On top of making my skin more radiant and drastically smoother it has helped with the fine lines around my eyes.

You’re going to want this fragrance, and not tell ANYONE what it is!

ellelaime

Part of me wants to keep this fragrance all to myself. I don’t want anyone to know, it’s my little secret!  You know when you find a perfume you love, you just want to keep it all to yourself? I’ve actually had it happen before, found a fragrance I love….then next thing I know people are asking what it is – then BOOM! We all smell the same. That’s no fun.

So I’m going to tell you about this so you can run out and get it before anyone else you know gets it…. and it can be ALL YOURS. If I know you and you’re reading this, you better not buy it – or I’ll cut you. Okay, I won’t cut you, but I will stop hanging out with you. I’m in love….don’t take this from me.

Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’Aime, meaning “she loves”, will let you discover what that is. Unlock the mystery within and enter a world that reveals the complexities and intricacies of the way women love. When you know Elle L’aime, you know what she loves. At once you understand what is precious, sensual and absolutely decadent.

Elle L’aime IS the scent of woman … her laugh, her zest for life, her desire, her soul. And like this very special woman, Elle L’aime too demands to be noticed; drawing you in, inviting a loved one to come close and be captivated.

This sophisticated, feminine, radiant floral scent has dazzling top notes of Bergamot, Neroli, and Lime, melded with an exotic, decadent Coco Essence heart, and warmed to a sumptuous close with luscious Vanilla and Sandalwood.

To experience Elle L’aime is to understand love’s mystery.

I’m not kidding you….. this is THE perfume for Christmas. Trust.

Okay let’s talk about my tacky Christmas cottage. I love this thing. When I was younger someone in my family, I believe my grandma, had this fiber-optic Christmas decoration, and I LOVED it. When my boys were really little, I found this fiber-optic Christmas village at Target. I snatched it up. Ever since then, it’s been the favorite Christmas decoration of my kids and nieces/nephews. I love the thing. You’re going to be seeing more of it. Get ready. :)

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.
