New! Murad Rapid Resurfacing Peel

CYMERA_20160823_163221 (1)

Simply amazing! The box comes with 16 wipes that use 2-3 times per week. I have sensitive skin so I’m always a bit worried about the burn with peel products. After washing my face I opened the pack and thoroughly wiped my face, neck and chest. There was a bit of tingle but no burn. Right away my skin felt clean, refreshed and unbelievably soft. I spent the next hour touching my face marveling at the smoothness.

Two days later I used my 2nd wipe and my skin felt amazing and smooth again and I noticed the blotchy spots has lightened and my skin was brighter. And I had a few little spots that had been starting and now a few days later no trace. I love how easy this is just wipe and moisturize, but the best part is the Murad results. After one week I am sold, my skin was from red and spotty to clear and smooth as silk. Now if only Murad would make a cream that turns pizza tummy into six pack abs… that’s a thing right?

DIY Kool-Aid Lip Gloss

CYMERA_20160822_160251

My tween’s summer boredom led to me googling easy tween projects. I found quite a few great ones but most needed quite a few things we didn’t have. Since I am working from home and trying to find ways for her to entertain herself so I can get my work done. I finally stumbled across this great recipe for DIY Kool -Aid lip gloss on Adventures in All Things Food. It met all the qualifiers of being able to be created by my daughter and her friends without the stove or knives or  me being tied up in the kitchen. And the best part just 4 ingredients all of which I had at home.

And I love how simple this is and its natural, and what girl doesn’t love lipgloss? To start you need coconut oil, water, sugar and powdered Kool-Aid. We had two half packs left so we mixed them and it turned into a really pretty ruby red shade.

As you can see above the ruby red color is beautiful, while it looks very bright the gloss comes out very sheer on the lips. All the fun of gloss without too much color and great for girls of any age. Once you have your ingredients together, the gloss is as simple as these few steps.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 package of Kool- Aid (Powdered)
  • Water (enough to make a paste)
  • 1tsp of sugar

Start by softening the coconut oil just 5 to 8 seconds in the microwave should be enough to soften it without turning it into a liquid. In a small bowl or cup pour the Kool-Aid powder and just enough water to form a paste. You want to start with just a bit and work up to make sure you don’t add too much water. Then whisk in the sugar, you might like a little more or less it takes the edge of f the bitterness of the unsweetened Kool-Aid. Once you have a nice paste add the coconut oil a bit at a time and mix until you have the desired color and texture.

Then once your gloss is made spoon it into your pots. I found some great little ones at the dollar store but you could also find pots at the craft store. The gloss will be softer since it has warmed from being mixed, it will be easy to scoop into the pots. Once they are done pop on the lids and throw them in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes to solidify your coconut oil base.

My daughter and her friends loved making gloss and are already brainstorming different flavor and color combos. This is such a great idea and would make fun gifts for your daughter to give friends.

Another reason to love Avocados!

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 $30 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!

I have used a few sheets masks and when I first tried the Freeze 24-7 Radiance Brightening  Coconut Gel mask it seemed pretty similar but once I got it in place I realized how great of a sheet mask it is. The mask comes encased in two fabric pieces which are all covered in the serum, just peel back the backing and apply the mask to your face and position. The little sheets also had the serum on them so not wanting to waste I rubbed the serum on them onto my chest and arms. Can’t a girl be radiant all over? What I really liked was how once I set the mask it stayed put. I was able to sit and work at my computer without it slipping or moving. I left it on for 25 minutes and by that time it felt much drier, I removed it and most of the serum had absorbed into my skin. The bit that hadn’t I just gently massaged in. My skin has felt amazing all day soft, smooth and dare I say radiant!?
