Pur Minerals CC Cream Review

Hey everyone!

I like to let my skin breath during the summer months, so I tend to never wear foundation in the summer. However, I would still love my skin to look more flawless during my outings. So when PUR Minerals sent me their CC Cream in the shade Medium, I was willing to give it a go! This CC Cream promises a good coverage with a matte finish. I found that this product did have a medium to full coverage, depending on how much product you used, and the finish was basically matte. I would still recommend that us girls with more oily skin apply some powder to set it. PUR Minerals CC Cream lasted most of the day on my skin, and did not seem to irritate it. Plus, the convenient pump style packaging and SPF 40 make this great for summer travel!

Here is what PUR Minerals has to say:

Your multitasking moisturizer, brightener, primer, concealer and SPF foundation! More than just another beauty balm, CC Cream with SPF 40 protects, corrects and perfects the skin’s appearance with clinically advanced plant-based ingredients, like DERMAPUR® HP—a clarifying corrective from meadowsweet—and CLARISKIN II®—a brightening powerhouse from wheat germ. Ideal for all skin types and concerns, this silicone-free formula works to erase brown spots, blemishes and fine lines from sight while balancing uneven skin tone.

How to Apply:

Smooth a small amount onto clean skin until evenly blended. CC Cream may be worn under 4-in-1 products for fuller coverage.

This product retails for $38.00 and can be purchased at!

Will you be trying this CC Cream for the summer?

L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Hand Cream

Hey everyone!

I always have hand cream floating around me, whether it's in my purse, in my bathroom, or next to my bed. I love when my hands look fresh and youthful, so you can imagine how excited I was when L'Occitane sent me a sample of their Immortelle Brightening Hand Cream!  This hand cream is excellent for those of us who are outdoors during the day, because it contains SPF 20. L'Occitane's Immortelle Hand Cream rubs in quickly, doesn't leave hands feeling greasy, and has a soft floral scent. A perfect addition to anyone's summer bag!

Here is what L'Occitane has to say:

The Brightening Hand Care SPF 20 is a triple-action formula that helps smooth hands, even out skin tone and protect against UV rays. Immortelle essential oil helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles and make the skin appear younger looking while Bellis perennis extract, combined with a mulberry-based plant complex, helps the hands appear more even toned. Hands are also protected with SPF 20 sunscreen.

L’OCCITANE’s Immortelle Brightening skin care line provides beauty benefits from the Mediterranean “flowers of light,” Immortelle and Bellis Perennis (Daisy).Immortelle is a flower with exceptional longevity: it never fades, even after it has been picked. Its essential oil is rich with unique anti-aging results. Bellis perennis, better known as the daisy, yields a brightening extract that helps regulate skin tone.

Lavanila The Healthy Body Wash - Vanilla Grapefruit

Hey everyone!

I love when my products can be used in different ways. So, when Lavanila sent me their Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave in the scent Vanilla Grapefruit, I was thrilled! This body wash is perfect to use all year round, because it leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized. I never have to apply lotion after my shower when I use this!  Plus, it works great to help you shave your legs. What more could a girl ask for? 

Vanilla Grapefruit
An Uplifting Citrus. This time-saving 2-in-1 blends sparkling pink grapefruit with a touch of warm Madagascar vanilla. 

Here is what Lavanila has to say:

This All-Natural Shower & Shave Wash delivers gentle cleansing and soft, silky shaving in one step. Hydrating Coconut & Rosehip Oils blend with Soothing Aloe & Calendula for a luxuriously lathering wash that deeply nourishes while you cleanse and prevents irritation as you shave. 

How to Use:

Squeeze a small amount onto wet puff, lather & rinse. Apply directly to skin to enjoy a soft, smooth shave. 
The Healthy Difference:
Traditional washes use sulfates and other harsh detergents that can cause skin irritations & contact dermatitis.

Traditional shaving products are typically formulated with numerous chemicals that can be more readily absorbed by open, freshly-shaven skin.

The Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 is a time-saving formula that luxuriously lathers while creating a soothing barrier for a close, non-irritating shave. Packed with nourishing ingredients that promote the development of healthy skin, this non-irritating wash soothes, cleans, and moisturizes!  

This product retails fro $14.00, and can be purchased at!

Mama Mio Get Waisted Body Shaper

Hey everyone!

Recently, I was given the chance to try out this Get Waisted Body Shaper from Mama Mio! This product claims to help you burn fat in 30 days, so that you are summer bikini ready. Needless to say, this product would have to be a miracle worker to get my body in bikini ready shape within 30 days! However, I do really love the formulation and concept of this product. The products comes out as a gel/cream consistency at first, but as you rub it into your skin it turns into a quick absorbing serum. It's super easy to use, and hopefully I will see some results after 30 days!

Here is what Mama Mio has to say:

Get a flatter, firmer, tighter tummy from proven fat-busters and toners in our body shaping cream that works beneath the skin's surface to increase the breakdown of fat. 

~clinically proven to help increase fat burning
~tightens and tones your skin so it feels smooth and taut
~works well on love handles, too

How to Use:

One pump is plenty – massage in for at least 30 seconds using large clockwise strokes (helping sluggish digestion, another cause of bloated bellies). Work all the way around your back. Use once a day for 30 days – no cheating! For maintenance, use once a day for as long as you wish. Feel free to get creative – if your arms are tubbier than your tummy, you can let them Get Waisted too.

How it Works:

Get Waisted works by increasing the energy levels within your skin, boosting firmness, tightness and increasing lipolysis. Lipolysis is the natural action that happens when your fat cells release the 'energy' within them - ie fat - to give your body fuel. Get Waisted has 7 ingredients that are designed to increase this natural action on the fat cells within your skin plus 2 skin firmers and tighteners. We want to be totally realistic on this - it is not going to remove large fat deposits, like adipose fat. That takes a combination of Get Waisted, exercise and eating well! But the combination of all these is going to give you a triple whammy result - smoother, firmer, tauter skin around your waist. This seriously is the best body shaper we could create. It has been tested independently by Weightwatchers and many publications like Daily Mail - Weightwatchers tester claimed 'I lost an inch in 30 days by simply using Get Waisted' and The Daily Mail gave Get Waisted the award of 5/5 Best Body Shaper against all the competition. This made us pretty happy, as you can imagine.

This product retails for $56.00, and can be purchased at!

Stay Safe With Jergens Natural Glow‏

Hey everyone!

There's no denying the evidence that tanning causes serious skin damage, including melanoma. Yet in spite of experts' warnings to stay out of the sun, wear SPF and skip tanning beds at all costs, countless Americans continue to go out in the sun without sunscreen. Most worryingly, even those who have been previously diagnosed with melanoma are disregarding warnings to be sun safe. According to research recently presented by Yale University researchers at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, more than a quarter of people who have had melanoma say they never use sunscreen. What's more, 2% admit they have used a tanning bed in the last year. These numbers aren't much better than the general population: just 17% of adults report always wearing sunscreen. 

That's some scary stuff people!

Clearly, many Americans aren't willing to give up tanning at any cost--even if the bad habit causes a life-threatening cancer. That's why it's imperative to educate the public about safe alternatives like Jergens Natural Glow, which is now reformulated with breakthrough odor-reducing technology, delivering the same signature color and benefits that have set it apart from the beginning. The formula delivers natural-looking, healthy color without exposure to harmful UV rays. People who are risking their lives in pursuit of a tan need to know that there are safer ways to get the same glow--in fact, it's a matter of life or death. 

 So, with Spring here and Summer right around the corner; Jergens sent me their Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer to try out! This product applies evenly without the streaks, and the scent is a lot less noticeable than other self tanners I've tried. Get ready to practice safe sun this year, and wear plenty of sunscreen with Jergens Natural Glow products!

Have you tried these products yet?
