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 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!

New! Freeze 24-7 Premium Coconut Gel Face Masks



Freeze 24-7®, the leaders in innovative anti-aging skincare, are introducing a new collection featuring premium coconut gel face masks for three kinds of common skincare concerns.

Anti-Gravity Lifting, Radiance Brightening and Intense Hydrating Face Masks are the latest additions to the Freeze 24-7® portfolio. The three unique formulas give skin a boost by delivering effective and intense skincare treatments normally serviced at the spa to your home.

These premium coconut gel face masks are made from all-natural fermented coconut juice, containing Vitamins B and C with natural soothing and hydrating properties. Each mask uses flexible material, adhering perfectly to fit all face shapes while containing 10 times more fluid than generic non-woven fabric. The new collection is made from 100% natural fabric with hypoallergenic material, causing no irritation.


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!?



Anti-Gravity Lifting Face Mask
Active lifting ingredients help to strengthen skin elasticity and restore skin density for firmer, younger looking skin.
· Adenosine: Improves appearance of wrinkles.
· Serilesine: Adds density to skin tissues increasing skin elasticity. Relieves existing fine lines and wrinkles while preventing future ones.
· Mushroom Complex extract with enriched β-glucan: Supplies moisturizing care and nutrition to the skin.


Radiance Brightening Face Mask
Brightening and skin tone improving ingredients work together to help skin regain luminosity and restore vitality; effectively alleviate dullness.
· Diffuporine: accelerates the synthesis of water channel which helps supply abundant moisture to skin from inside & outside.
· Amino Acid Complex: helps skin cell’s growth and cure, skin hydration and elasticity.


Intense Hydrating Face Mask
Moisturizing peptides penetrate deeply into the skin to give it a boost of instant hydration. Amino-acids reinforce the skin’s natural barrier to seal in moisture for a long-lasting hydrating effect.
· White Power Telangyn™: brightens and evens skin tone while preventing redness and blemishes.
· Brightening Complex: protects from harmful environments, making skin bright and healthy. It also helps moisturize and soften the skin to keep the skin tone radiant and stable.

Usage: Gently unfold mask peeling off the protective paper from one side of the mask. Apply the mask to cleansed, dry skin, fitting it to the curves around the eyes, nose and mouth. Once fully applied, remove the protective film from the outside of the mask. Leave on for 20-25 minutes. Gently remove and pat the face with clean fingertips until remaining serum is fully absorbed – no need to rinse. Use 2-3 times a week.

Price: $60.00 (8 masks per box)

Coola Sport SPF 45 Mango Moisturizer


One of my summer favorites! While I tend to go for the ease of spray sunscreen I always come back to the Coola Sport sunscreen. The Fresh Mango scent is amazing and the lotion is lightweight and absorbs quickly without any greasy or sticky residue. And I love that its organic and safe to use on my skin and myself without worrying about what we are slathering on.

A great protection I can be out swimming or hiking and the Coola Sport keeps my skin protected and burn free. And I can even use it on my face without any breakouts. If you haven’t tried Coola sun care products before be sure to check them out.
