Christmas201400017

If there’s one brand you know you can count on these days – it’s Burt’s Bees*. Am I right? You see something from Burt’s Bees and you know you’re getting something you love, something you can trust, and something that WORKS. I’ve always loved Burt’s Bees. And with their entire line being affordable – you can really afford to stock up for the holidays and give them away as stocking stuffers! Please keep Burt’s Bees in mind this holiday season as you shop for your loved ones.

Here are just a couple of their MANY holiday offerings. I love them so much…need to buy doubles.

Burt’s Bees Holiday Gift Collection is full of natural, ‘no wrap needed’ personal care gift sets and stocking stuffers for everyone on your list this year. From the busy mom to the selfie obsessed teen, outdoorsy guy to your favorite teacher – they’ve got you covered. The best part, they’re all $5 to $15 and available at your local drugstore. Besides, who doesn’t love a little natural beauty?

Perfect for Winter! Try Pür Minerals M.M.C. Anti-Aging Moisture Complex!

Is your skin needing a little extra somethin’somethin’ this winter? Man, mine sure is.

About a month ago I was sent Pür Minerals M.M.C. Anti-Aging Moisture Complex to sample, and I am LOVING the results so far!

Feed your skin with anti-oxidants and protect it from free radicals. This anti-aging, hydrating cream has been shown to improve skin texture and tone in as little as 10 days. The M.M.C. Anti-Aging Moisture Complex is free of chemical dyes and contains key ingredients that detoxify, condition and renew the skin. ($38, PurMinerals.com)

I love the fact that it’s only $38. That’s pretty affordable for a high-end moisturizer. I think this is a great buy for anyone who wants to improve their skin.

Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser is refreshing!

To go along with my newly-purchased moisturizer (below) I also picked up Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser! I love this stuff. It is so invigorating, so refreshing! The soft, gentle cleanser has these little beads of citrus that just wake your skin up!

Patented antioxidant-rich cleanser using Vitamins A, C and E neutralize and rehydrate environmentally damaged skin by removing impurities and awakening the senses with a burst of citrus.

Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E neutralize free radicals and other environmental aggressors while Phospholipids bind moisture to the skin. Essential-C Cleanser establishes a well-hydrated foundation for application of a treatment product.

Massage a small amount over dampened face and neck. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, follow with Essential-C Toner and Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex during the day.

Like all of their products, a little goes a long way…. so $36 ain’t bad if you ask me!

Review: Murad’s Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30

IMG_4573

I’ve loved Murad’s products for as long as I can remember. I’ve used many of them – each with different benefits. After I ran out of my moisturizer last week, I headed to Ulta to find something new. I settled on Murad’s Essential-C Day Moisturizer, which is supposed to help clear up my sun-spots while moisturizing!

Shield and restore environmentally stressed skin with next generation Vitamin C and Murad’s patented Skin Repair System to improve radiance, firmness and elasticity while protecting skin from sun and free radical damage. Protects and strengthens skin against environmental aging.

Benefits:

  • Blocks UVA/UVB rays to prevent sun and free radical damage.
  • Improves skin’s barrier function to maintain optimal hydration
  • Powerful antioxidant-rich sunscreen shields and restores environmentally stressed skin.
  • Next generation Vitamin C and the patented Skin Repair System improve firmness and elasticity.

One of the main things I love about this moisturizer is it takes very little to cover your face and neck, PLUS it absorbs quickly!  It leaves your skin feeling refreshed and healthy!

Not bad, right??
