Avocado’s aren’t just for guacamole anymore!

IMG_2026

While avocados are the key ingredient in the delicious Mexican dip, did you know that the fruit has major anti-acne benefits? It’s true: TURO SKIN’s Anti-Acne Spot Treatment contains Avocutine, which is derived from avocados and aids in oil control and reduces dead skin cell accumulation. Additionally, the Spot Treatment minimizes breakouts while accelerating the healing process while reducing scarring and hyperpigmentation.

TURO SKIN™ Anti-Acne Spot Treatment (SRP $22 at turoskin.com and at select physicians’ offices nationwide) is a potent, fast-acting treatment that can be applied as needed to targeted areas in order to minimize breakouts and clear acne-riddled skin. It accelerates the healing process while reducing scarring and hyperpigmentation. Key benefits include:

  • Potent and fast-acting
  • Reduces post-acne scarring
  • Non-oily, transparent, matte finish

I have an almost-14-year-old son, and acne is a big concern of mine and his. He’s been using this product for a month or so, and as his mom – I’ve noticed positive results! Acne breakouts seem fewer and far between! This works great!

The soap that beats all soaps – from Pacifica!

I have died and gone to heaven! I am absolutely OBSESSED with Pacifica’s Hydrating Handmade Natural Soaps. I’ve tried several now, and I’m telling you – one you try them – you will NEVER go back! I’ll give you several reasons. For one, your skin feels absolutely renewed! Second, the scent is ridiculous. It is so strong – and throughout the WHOLE bar of soap. It doesn’t just smell amazing at first – it smells amazing the entire time. Third, this bar of soap lasts FOREVER. I’m not kidding. I end up opening another one, just so I can try a new scent! I’m going on month 3 of using one bar, it’s still going strong! This bar of soap lasts forever!

Trust me when I say – it’s the best $10 you’ll ever spend on soap.

Their Indian Coconut Nectar Hydrating Bar Soap is moisturizing, rich-lathering, sulfate-free and bio-degradable, Pacifica Natural Soaps are handmade with a proprietary vegetable glycerin, vegetable oils and herbs.
