The Game-Changing At-Home Beauty Device That’s Racking Up 5-Star Rave Reviews

You’d jump at the chance to have those new skin treatments that will help get rid of the “age spots” on your cheeks and crow’s feet around your eyes, but you simply can’t afford them.  As it is, you’ve invested in costly creams and serums that include high-quality ingredients, like retinol and hyaluronic acid, to treat your skin concerns. But realistically you know they can just do so much!  Ladies, now you can get affordable skincare tools to use at home that operate on the identical technology as the expensive machines used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and medi spas.

Using MicrodermMD for the first time

The man behind these innovative beauty devices is Imran Karim, who owned one of the most successful medi spas in Dallas, TX  “Our skin treatments transformed the way thousands of clients looked and how they felt, so I knew the technology worked, but only a limited portion of the population could afford them,” Imran told me. “So I thought, how can we take this very effective technology, scale it down and allow it to be affordable and convenient for more people?”

After a couple of years of research, development and rigorous testing with doctors, scientists and product engineers, Imran launched Trophy Skin. Each of its three professional-grade skin care tools-MicrodermMD, RejuvaliteMD and Jenu Plus–have been clinically proven to do exactly what they promise to do, including revitalizing our skin, reducing wrinkles and furrows, sun damage and age spots.  “We met with the same manufacturers who produced the equipment for my medi spa to determine how to create at-home products that didn’t have to be used by doctors and trained professionals,” Imran explained. “They may not be as powerful as the professional machines, but we work with doctors on our clinical studies to ensure that each device is correctly tested and is highly effective. We also have FDA clearance when it’s required.”

Today, I’m introducing you to MicrodermMD Home Microdermabrasion System, the company’s best seller.  A beautifully designed tool, it smoothes, brightens and revitalizes rough, crepey, dry skin as well as reduces pitting, pockmarks and light acne scarring.

A diamond particle encrusted tip and a pore extraction tip restore radiance to the skin by gently but deeply exfoliating dead skin cells and suctioning away the dirt, oil and makeup residue that cause the skin to look dull, aged and lifeless.  MicrodermMD also reduces or eliminates enlarged pores and buffs away fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. It can be used on the neck and body too.

The device features Auto Mode that directs you through the process on an LCD screen and automatically adjusts the suction level for each section of your face. Sensitive Mode provides gentler suction levels, and Manual Mode lets you create a custom treatment. Skin can be treated up to twice a week. “You’ll immediately feel softer, smoother skin after the first five-minute treatment, but when you remove the filter you’ll be surprised to see the amount of dirt and oil that came off your face. You’ll be left with smooth, soft, perfectly clean and bright skin,” Imran explained.  

An infusion tip included with the MicrodermMD kit is designed to be used after your treatment to help gently push the active ingredients in your creams and serums deeper into the skin. The suction motor on the device opens your pores so products can more effectively be infused into the skin.

Trophy Skin has custom-developed Argan Stem Cell Serum especially for use after microdermabrasion because your skin will be a little pinkish red, which actually is the sign of a good treatment. Soothing and gentle, Argan has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, algae and mugwort extracts to hydrate, protect, calm and renew skin from the inside out.  When used consistently, Argan Stem Cell Serum reduces fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes age spots, increases skin firmness, tightens and refines pores, and supports collagen and elastin production.

Look at these superb results from a 6-week Trophy Skin clinical study, not to mention the extraordinary before-and-after images:

6 weeks after starting MicroDermMD

80%  SAW DECREASED PORE SIZE

80%  EXPERIENCED DECREASED WRINKLE DEPTH

95%  HAD SOFTER, MORE HYDRATED AND REFRESHED SKIN

100% WOULD RECOMMEND MICRODERM MD  TO THEIR FAMILY & FRIENDS

The Trophy Skin reviews are phenomenal, from women of all ages.

The Best Skin Care Investment!!!

“Love Love the MicrodermMD!!!! The first two sessions I set the mode for sensitive skin, the 3rd session and after I stepped out of my comfort zone and set the mode on manual. I have sensitive skin and I could tolerate the suction. I am not saying that this would be a good idea for everyone but OMG my pores are starting to disappear, my skin is soft like a baby’s behind, and I’m slowly noticing the age spots fading and the wrinkles are not so prominent. Skin looks brighter as well. I use the MicrodermMD twice a week and I do not regret the purchase.”50-something Mary K.

Magic in a wand

“This has been quite the experience for me. I never realized what a filthy face I walked around with until I started using MicrodermMD…lol. I haven’t had it for very long but I can say I love how easy it is to use and how well it does, just like it’s advertised. I’ll be ordering a couple of other things as I’d like to do more than just my face. Thank you so much for selling a product that does what you say it does.” –50-something Tammy L

Thicker–And Fuller-Looking–Hair At Last!

This is a “sponsored post.” Volaire compensated FOF with an advertising sponsorship to write it. Regardless, we only recommend products or services that we believe will be helpful for our readers. All insights and expressed opinions are our own.

My body and my hair have taken dramatically different directions as I’ve aged: The former is fuller and thicker, the latter thinner and flatter. Woe is me! I’ve tried countless volumizing products and even bought an expensive custom hair piece to give me fullness up top. The products coated my hair strands to make them thicker, but only weighed down my already pancake-like style. Worse, they made my hair look and feel dirtier! As for the hairpiece, it became a nuisance to maintain.

Now, a revolutionary Hair Volumizing System called VOLAIRE has come into my life, and my tresses (and I) are doing a happy dance.

So are millions of women, including actress Kristin Davis. “My hair was full when I was young, then one day I went to put it in a ponytail and it wasn’t there. It had become thinner, drier and damaged,” the 54-year-old actress remembered.

Kristin became an instant Volaire fan the first time she tried it, after hearing a stylist rave about how well it worked on his clients’ hair. “VOLAIRE makes my hair move with natural, beautiful, weightless volume once again! It looks as good as it did when I played Charlotte on Sex And The City,” she said.  Kristin is so pleased with the results, she’s become the VOLAIRE brand ambassador.

Unlike all those traditional, heavy products, VOLAIRE exclusive AIRWEIGHT TECHNOLOGY blends nourishing ingredients with unique microspheres to give lift and volume to my thinning and lifeless hair. These positively charged microspheres literally attach to each negatively charged hair shaft to create more space between individual strands for weightless volume.  It’s not magic. It’s science. And, it works!

Three products make up the VOLAIRE Hair Volumizing System with proprietary AirWeight Technology:

WEIGHTLESS VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO

An aerated dispenser releases a pillowy and rich foam lather that I easily work throughout my hair, leaving it feeling soft, silky and lifted. The shampoo is free of sulfates and parabens, can safely be used on my color-treated hair, and infuses it with nutrient-rich ingredients, such as avocado oil, kelp and algae extracts, and chamomile. Coconut-derived surfactants make my hair feel clean, but don’t rob it of essential oils.

WEIGHTLESS FORTIFYING CONDITIONER

I need to use only a small amount of this wonderfully rich, nourishing and hydrating conditioner to help prevent breakage, without adding weight to my hair. I leave it on for two minutes, and, after rinsing it out, my hair is touchable and soft, but never heavy or sticky. Ingredients include oat protein, which softens and smoothes my hair, and panthenol, which helps reduce dryness, dullness and breakage. My hair is finer than it’s ever been, but this conditioner treats it richly, without weighing it down and making it feel lifeless.

UPLIFT VOLUMIZING MIST

After towel drying my hair, I spray on this ultra-light mist, which is formulated to lock onto my hair roots and strands to pump up the volume without making my hair stiff, sticky or tacky. Restorative extracts actually nourish the roots and scalp. When I use the mist on my wet hair, it adds body, smoothness and bounce, whether I blow it dry or let it air dry. It also includes natural sea salt, so when I apply it on my dry hair, it refreshes my naturally curly hair, and gives me a full-bodied texture. I only have to shampoo and style every few days.

Besides giving my hair immediate fullness and body, The VOLAIRE Hair Volumizing System makes it shinier and healthier because it’s formulated with essential fatty acids and vitamins. What’s more, the volume lasts all day!

VOLAIRE  has put together an introductory set so you can try these innovative products for 50% savings over buying each product separately. And, the company is so confident you’ll become a VOLAIRE fan, it’s offering a 60-day money back guarantee on everything!

Plus, you’ll love our free gift, a $30 value: A pretty and practical drawstring bag–with heat-resistant liner–to store and carry up to three hot styling tools whether you’re out and about or home.

Lip Service

   Geri sans lipstick

I’ve been obsessed for quite some time with finding a lipstick color that flatters my face. Like many women, I’ve tossed out tube after tube throughout my adult life, falling out of love with shades faster than Artie Shaw and Mickey Rooney fell out of love with their wives. When red was all the rage, I thought I’d try it, but felt self conscious the minute it hit my lips. Bright coral looked good in the store, but too pink once I got outside. Pale shades made me look like Casper, but dark tones turned me into Cruella. Whenever I see a flattering color on a woman’s lips I wonder why I can never find a single one I like for mine!  My lips seem to provoke a chemical reaction that transforms tones that look beautiful in the tube into hideous shades once they’re applied.

My quest for the perfect lipstick took a fortuitous turn last week when I spotted a cool shop in Soho called Lip Lab by Bite that looked like it blended custom lip colors.  I had some time before my next appointment, and time is a dangerous thing for me if I’m near almost any kind of store, but as I entered I rationalized that I’ve been looking my whole life for a lipstick color I could love.  As luck would have it, only one other customer was in the shop so I could meet with a “color artist” right away, even though I didn’t have an appointment.

Inviting me to sit down in front of a tray filled with dozens of little pots of pigment, Jennifer explained I could either choose a pre-existing shade (Lip Lab actually offers 200 pigments, but the little pots represent the most popular colors), or she could create a completely custom shade. I applied five stock colors using cue tips, but none appealed to me, so I told Jennifer I’d prefer to take the custom route.  (My lips were feeling a bit chapped after applying and removing the five colors, but I forged on, determined to walk out with a signature Geri Brin lipstick.)

     Creating custom colors

Although I wanted Jennifer to tell me which shade would suit me best, she stressed that choosing lipstick is totally personal.  “I might think you look great in a color, but you shouldn’t buy it if it makes you feel uncomfortable. Buy what you like,” Jennifer said.

After asking which family of colors I like best (“oranges, but not too bright or dark,” I answered) and the finish I preferred (“slightly shiny”), Jennifer began scooping out little bits of creamy pigments, blended them on a piece of paper and handed me one cue tip applicator after another topped with a different hue.

Pouring the ingredients into a mold

A spectrum of colors looked good on the paper and on my lips under the indoor fluorescent lighting, but they were way too red, pink or rose when I carried the hand-held mirror outside to see how they looked in natural lighting. I must have communicated how overwhelmed I felt at this point, because Jennifer said I needn’t feel obligated to choose anything. But she wasn’t giving up and started blending teams of new colors. At last, her artistry paid off, and I fell madly in love with a color that’s a combination of apricot, nude, coral and yellow. The Lip Lab Bespoke Lip Service included a second tube in the same or different color, so I asked Jennifer to create a darker shade, and she came up with another winner, this one combining apricot, yellow and brown.

Primo (left) and Geri

Colors chosen, the next step was to select the scent for each of my lipsticks, created by infusing essential oil into the color formula.  I picked fresh citrus for the darker lipstick and violet for the lighter shade. Other scents included vanilla, mint and citrus mango. Jennifer then poured the liquid concoctions of “all-natural” ingredients into metal, lipstick-shaped molds, which she set atop a freezing unit for about seven minutes until they solidified. Finally, she used lipstick tubes to gingerly extract the solid columns of color from the molds.  I also got to name my new lipsticks, so I chose Geri for one and Primo for the other, after my six-year-old grandson. Jennifer imprinted the names in silver type on the tops of the elegant gray tubes. Voila!  My custom lipsticks were ready. Besides the tubes of lipstick, my Bespoke kit included a mini whipped cherry lip scrub, mini agave lip mask and mini line & define lip primer, which is supposed to make the color last longer.  

     Wearing Geri

Lip Lab, based in Toronto, Canada, also has a shop there, as well as in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  You can buy its stock shades online, but can only enjoy the custom experience in person. The Bespoke Lip Service is $150.  Certainly not drug store prices, but these lipsticks are certainly not drug store colors or quality.

PS I bought Mac lip pencil in chicory to complement both new lipstick colors.

Using The Power Of Nature On Your Skin

        Dr. Kavita Beri

When I visit Dr. Kavita Beri’s medispa near the New Jersey shore, I feel more peaceful just being around her. Intelligent and beautiful, she moves and speaks gently and with grace. After she treats my skin to an Alma laser procedure, I feel as if I’ve been away for a long weekend. A  board-certified physician and scientist in the fields of regenerative medicine and dermal research, Dr. Beri also is a registered yoga teacher and founder of BE MIND BODY SKIN, an “integrative aesthetics and wellness spa.” She is guided by the belief that how we feel on the inside reflects how we look on the outside, and in the power of nature to emotionally and physically heal us.

“Being out in nature can enhance the energy that we have in our bodies,” Dr. Beri asserts. “This energy inside of us also is a part of everything that we see outside of us. When we do things that connect us with our surroundings, it makes us more comfortable with who we are. So the trees, the plants, the flowers, the clouds, the sky and every other beautiful thing we see make us feel good about ourselves,” she says.

We feel good when we go to the beach and see the ocean, Dr. Beri explains. “Something changes within us. We start feeling relaxed. We’re in a better mood. We begin thinking about the better things in life. We feel a connection with everything that’s beautiful!”

When we seek the beauty of nature, we’re really seeking a balance in ourselves to help us appreciate who we are, Dr. Beri believes. “Everything that’s natural has the inherent ability to alter the chemicals in our brains and make us feel better.” The same thing happens when we eat a healthy meal, like a salad full of greens, Dr. Beri adds. When we do something positive for our bodies, like going off carbs, we start feeling good about ourselves, and our bodies start responding better. “That is all happening through our gut,” she says.  

The Philosophy of ‘Vibrational Cosmetics’

Our skin responds to everything that’s in our brain and in our gut, Dr. Beri emphasizes. It’s a mirror of what we are from the inside. “Nature has so much power on our gut and on our mind; why can’t we use the power of nature on our skin?” Dr. Beri reasoned, as she set out to develop a line of beauty products made “purely and directly from nature, without added chemicals to make it smell better, last longer or be a certain color.” Think about the difference between eating farm fresh vegetables and overly processed frozen food, she suggests.

Dr. Beri named her collection KYVTA, which she classifies as “vibrational cosmetics,” because they’re created according to centuries-old practices that use the sound vibration of sacred ritualistic chants to “harmonize the energy in matter with its surroundings.” Plants have matter, and the herbs in Dr. Beri’s KYVTA formulas have been harvested from land that is blessed by nature, at a precise time during their circadian cycle.

“They don’t just go out and pluck the plants and put them together in a concoction,” Dr. Beri explains. “The ritualistic process is used throughout the creation of each beauty product, so it can harness the fullness of nature’s life force to caress and heal your skin. Ancient medicine didn’t have MRIs and CT scans. They used plants to heal the brain, skin and gut.”

KYVTA Scalp & Hair Tonic includes a blend of seasonally-picked, potent herbs from a small village in southern India. The farmers chant, pray and recite mantras when they’re extracting the herbs, after which the herbs are ground and combined with a coconut oil base. When the plants are chanted upon with powerful mantras, they’re receiving a blessing, a positive vibration, a prayer of gratitude, which increases their potency.

“After the people in the village get up in the morning, they pray, they go out into to the fields, they chant to the plants, they pluck the plants, then they put the oil together with mantras. It’s not like someone working a 9 to 5 job putting chemicals in a little bottle,” Dr. Beri says. Her tonic helps prevent hair loss, thinning and greying, she claims.

The KYVTA Tonics feature natural essential oil aromas from flowers that calm down the skin and the mind. The Aloe Sandalwood tonic, for example, nourishes the skin and heals conditions such as acne and rosacea, Dr. Beri says.

The Juniper Rosehip Tumeric Facial Cleansing Oil is one of the best sellers at Dr. Beri’s spa. A healing blend of rosehip and juniper berry essential oil with turmeric also acts as a moisturizer to even skin tone and prevent acne.

All of the products in the KYVTA line are 100 percent plant based and cruelty free.

A Derm Treatment in a Bottle

You’re trying on dresses for an important event. “That looks darling on you,” the saleswoman gushes about a style that makes your tummy and boobs look bigger than they are! Now, think about beauty products. Whether you have facial redness, uneven tone, or crow’s feet, saleswomen always seem to have just the products for you. Unfortunately, you trust them more than the woman in the dress department because you can’t tell what the moisturizer or serum are going to do for your skin. So you decide to give them a try.

  Dr. Karyn Grossman

Here’s the truth: Even if you buy high-priced skincare products from the ritziest stores in town, don’t kid yourself into thinking that you’re getting the best advice on which are best for your skincare concerns. Salespeople are trained to vigorously push the brands they represent, not to deal with each of our unique needs.

“Every day, my patients come to see me with arms full of products, trying to find solutions for their skincare issues. Considering the overwhelming number of creams and serums in the stores, it’s becoming more and more confusing for them know which ones will address their specific concerns. In our office, we use a scientifically-based system to select products for each patient,” said Dr. Karyn Grossman, an LA and New York-based, board-certified dermatologist who developed a passion for treating skin when she was a second year medical student at Boston University.

A Derm Treatment In a Bottle  

But, you don’t have to fly to Santa Monica, CA, or Park Avenue to personally consult with Dr. Grossman (Gwyneth Paltrow and models Linda Evangelista and Molly Sims are patients), because she’s created an eponymous skincare collection to deal with many of our most pressing skincare issues, she says confidently. KARYNG (“caring for yourself and the world,” Dr. Grossman notes) is a precisely curated collection of six products with “active, high-performance ingredients that target the key signs of aging–fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven pigmentation, inflammation, and dullness–to help give us a fresh appearance,” the doctor explains.

Inspired to develop her own line after working with some of the biggest names in skin care, such as Estee Lauder, Dr. Grossman’s wanted to thwart “the long-term effects of skin inflammation” that she repeatedly saw as her patients aged. “Inflammation is the root of many skin concerns,” she explains. Produced with rich antioxidants that help repair and restructure our skin, each of the six KARYNG products features “Pro-Verte Technology,” a proprietary and patented formula designed to maximize anti-aging and anti-inflammatory results.

Responding also to her patients’ increasing concerns about the “safety of their skincare products,” Dr. Grossman wanted her own collection to be as natural as possible, without sacrificing anti-aging benefits. As a dermatologist offering comprehensive cosmetic treatments, from lasers to fillers, liposuction to thread lifts, she is known for her deep commitment to giving her patients natural-looking, refreshed results. The KARYNG line is produced with the same guiding principles.

Manufactured in the United States, and packed in sustainable cartons, KARYNG features 90 percent “safe and gentle, yet potent, natural ingredients,” with 10 percent bioengineered ingredients, such as peptides. “It’s the best of both worlds,”  Dr. Grossman says. “It’s super elegant and a super-easy program to follow to get results, as opposed to the 26 products you use or have sitting on your bathroom shelf.” A single, working mother of two, Dr. Grossman believes our skincare routines should be as effortless as possible.

The Cleanser

Healthy skin begins with clean skin, but you’ll want to gently deep clean, without stripping your skin, Dr.Grossman advises. KARYNG Replenishing Cleanser, fueled by the exclusive, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory Pro-Verte formula, includes super moisturizing coconut oil and coconut fatty acid, and glycerin, to help maintain the outer barrier of the skin and prevent dryness.  The cleanser can be used night and day on any skin type, removes makeup, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

The Morning Product

Wishing to formulate an “all-in-one morning product that provides antioxidants, hydration and sunblock proved difficult, but we finally got it,” Dr. Grossman reports. KARYNG Complete Broad Spectrum SPF50 contains protective echinacea to help prevent age spots and make skincells more resilient to stress and environmental aggressors that cause wrinkles and fine lines. It also has coconut oil, glycerin,and the patented Pro-Verte Complex, so it’s an emollient moisturizer, anti-aging powerhouse, makeup primer and SPF shield. Available in two shades, it “evens out your skin and reduces redness, and it’s effective on all skin types,” Dr. Grossman says.

“As a dermatologist, I must convince my patients that they need to wear sunscreen every single day, both from a health issue as well as to combat the redness, acne and pigmentation that come with aging. Statistically, one in three caucasians gets skin cancer; one in five people of all skin colors gets skin cancer; one person dies every hour from skin cancer. There are more skin cancers in a single year than all cancers combined in a three-year period,” Dr. Grossman reports.“You don’t die at 60 anymore, so you need to start taking care of your skin even if you didn’t in the past. Having healthy skin isn’t optional.  You want to hold down the risk of something happening.”

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that we use a minimum of 30 SPF, but Dr. Grossman says that most people don’t apply enough sunscreen to get the proper protection, plus people often take medications or use skin products, like retinol, that make them sensitive to the sun. “It’s often difficult to get patients to use sunscreen because they don’t like the way it feels and smells, so my challenge was to find a sunscreen that people would actually wear every day,” Dr. Grossman adds. Complete Broad Spectrum SPF50 has become a “hero product,” she says. It works on light to dark skin tones.

The Evening Product

We need hydration and correction at night, Dr. Grossman stresses. KARYNG Restructuring Night Cream is a “very rich, but light, moisturizer,” with ingredients including hyaluronic acid; coconut oil; shea butter; sunflower seed and olive oil; watermelon rind, lentil and apple extract, and the exclusive Pro-Verte complex. It helps repair the skin’s protective barrier, promote collagen production, boost energy production in the skin, increase cell turnover, reduce inflammation, and promote luminescence and noticeable firmness.  

The Eyes Have It

“For women who want to add eye cream to their morning skincare routine, KARYNG Revitalizing Eye Cream works on dark circles, lines and wrinkles, and puffiness. It firms, tones and contours the entire eye area, and absorbs really well into the skin so you can put your makeup over it,” Dr. Grossman says. The energizing cream is formulated with ingredients including antioxidant soybean extract, rich shea butter, glycerin, and the proprietary Pro-Verte Complex.

Anti-aging Gold Standard

Dermatologists consider retinol, also known as Vitamin A1, as the “gold standard” for anti-aging, because it can help speed skin renewal and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine line and age spots for firmer, smoother and more evenly-toned skin, Dr. Grossman explains. She decided not to include it her day or night cream, however, since “some people are sensitive to it.”

Dr. Grossman instead formulated a separate Retinol Renewing Serum with extra ingredients, including licorice, apple and lentil seed extract, plus coconut oil, so it’s not only effective, but can be tolerated by all skin types without causing redness and irritation. It reportedly reduces fine lines after two hours, and decreases pore size.

All six products in the premier KARYNG collection do not have parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, BPA’s,PEG’s, TEA, DEA, GMO, glutens, or synthetic fragrances.

A Potent Skincare System At Palatable Prices. About Time!

This post is sponsored by goPure Beauty

Whether you buy a $10 eye cream at Walgreens or a $120 moisturizer at Macy’s, you can bet that the  pretty packaging and the glitzy advertising account for a big chunk of the price. Mass and class beauty brands spend oodles on bottles and boxes beckoning you to buy them, and on ads designed to lure you into the store in the first place. These over-the-top expenses are part of the price tag.  That’s a deep, dark beauty industry secret!

It’s about time someone formulated an exceptional skincare collection with the most potent, active ingredients for aging skin, minus the snazzy packaging and gargantuan advertising budgets. And, at the lowest possible prices. Someone has! Erin Driess sold big brand beauty products online for years, but wanted to satisfy her customers’ repeated requests for a high-quality skincare line, at super affordable prices. goPure Beauty was born, and women from Florida to Oregon are loving what its serums, moisturizers, creams, and gels are doing for their skin, at prices they can’t believe!

“I have had this system for only a few weeks and am already seeing a difference in my skin. I am 54 and nobody can believe it. The appearance of fine lines on my forehead and between my eyes are diminishing. I have had discoloration on my neck and I am already seeing a change in how that looks as well.  You have a devoted customer now,” wrote Linda from Allentown, PA.

Complete Anti-Wrinkle Power Trio

The goPure Beauty “system” Linda adores features skincare serums with some of the most powerful ingredients in the industry: Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.  Its Vitamin C Serum includes an extract of the rare Kakadu plum, from Northern Australia, that contains more than 100 times the Vitamin C of an average orange.  Its Hyaluronic Acid Serum is designed to deeply hydrate these skin, and contains a plant-derived extract that mimics the effects of Hyaluronic Acid naturally produced in our tissues. And, the main ingredient in the goPure Retinol Serum is a Retinoid that has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and is far less prone to cause irritation than traditional Retinol.

Although Erin explains that each woman will experience different results, she says that “together, these serums are a complete skin care power trio for women over 40, created by one of the top independent professional laboratories in the business that formulates for some of the best known, prestige skin care brands and dermatologists.” Erin asked the U.S. lab to develop highly effective formulas, with proven active ingredients, and she made sure to eliminate unnecessary expenses by using simple, but sturdy, packaging that still keeps the products stable. When you buy goPure products directly online, you’re paying the same price stores would pay, but without their exorbitant 100 percent markup. That’s right. The department store paid about $75 for a serum they sell to you for $150.  

Other exceptional products in the goPure collection include Microdermabrasion Resurfacing Exfoliator Cream with natural enzymes to lift dead skin cells and reveal beautiful, glowing skin; All Day Facial Moisturizing Cream with Vitamin C to infuse your skin with nutrient rich Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Green Tea and keep it deeply hydrated throughout the day, and Pure Vitamin C Cleanser, a natural and gentle formula with nourishing herbal and antioxidant ingredients to remove pore-clogging toxins and leave your skin feeling hydrated and fresh.

It’s Called goPure Because It Is  

What’s more, the goPure beauty line absolutely doesn’t have parabens, artificial fragrances, propylene glycol, hydroquinone, formaldehyde, SLS, or dyes. “We guarantee that our products are the highest purity possible,” Erin stresses. 

Erin also wants to make it easy for every woman to choose the best products for her skin, so she’s put together sets of complementary products that work well together.  But whatever you choose, from a single product to the most comprehensive Premium Youth Glow Skin Care System featuring 10 products, you’ll be astounded and thrilled by the sensible prices. Plus, you order when you want. goPure never autoships or autobills.

“I ordered the kit with Vitamin C Cleanser, Serum and Moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid and Eye Gel. I am on my second order now and I added the Retinol Duo.  I have NEVER been happier!

My Hair–And I–Are Doing A Happy Dance!

Braided in the fifties. Teased through the sixties. Straightened in the seventies. Curly through the eighties and nineties. And, pretty much diminishing after that! My hair has been right there with me, through thick and THIN! But, it looked pretty much like it was going to leave me permanently, and I’d never have a good hair day ever again.

I tried one volumizing product after another, and even had an expensive hair piece made to give me fullness up top. The products just weighed down my already pancake-like style (if you could even call it a style), and it became a nuisance to maintain the piece.

Now, a revolutionary Hair Volumizing System called VOLAIRE has come into my life, and my tresses (and I) are doing a happy dance.

So are millions of women, including actress Kristin Davis. “My hair was full when I was young, then one day I went to put it in a ponytail and it wasn’t there. It had become thinner, drier and damaged,” the 51-year-old actress remembered. (more…)

Banish These Three Words From Your Vocabulary

This post is sponsored by RoC

Yay for Ellen Degeneres! When she brought up actress Helen Mirren’s age during an interview earlier this year (Helen will be 73 in July, and doesn’t hesitate to say it), Ellen gushed to Helen, “You look GREAT!”

Ellen left off three little words from her statement to Helen, that too many of us would fail to omit if we were lucky enough to have a conversation with the great actress. Those three words are: “…for your age.” Undoubtedly, Helen, like countless other women, has gotten the backhanded compliment, “You look great for your age,” countless times over the years. I sure have!

Now in her 50s, Ellen well might have paid close attention to an exceptional consciousness-raising campaign by RoC Skincare, called #ForYourAge, that aims to get us all to think twice before ever again using the expression with a compliment. As women age, this seeming praise can have a far greater impact on a woman’s self image and how she defines her beauty than can be seen on the surface.

A whopping 82 percent of women aged 40+ have been told they look great “for their age” in the last year, according to the nationwide RoC #ForYourAge survey. In fact, women received this backhanded compliment an average of every six weeks in the past year, the survey revealed.

         Thandie Newton

A majority of women surveyed said they’d rather not get a compliment at all than hear one paired with the three little words “for your age”;  nearly one in four women feel it would be worse to admit their age to everyone they know than their salary, and 87 percent of women agree that society expects women to act their age, but look younger.

Thandie Newton, the award-winning British actress and RoC campaign ambassador, reported she’s heard “for your age” many times as she’s been getting older, and she’s almost three decades younger than Helen. “It’s made me feel disappointed and I hate it,”  said Thandie, who appears in Westworld, the popular science fiction series. “When you say ‘you look good for your age,’ you’re immediately boxing someone in. We should instead be liberating each other. Let’s give a compliment fully,” Thandie stressed.

I encourage you to watch Thandie’s short, inspirational video for RoC, and to join the #ForYourAge movement by vowing to think twice before using the expression again. Also, make sure to gently tell anyone who uses it with you that you’d prefer they didn’t!

 

A Potent Skincare System At Palatable Prices. About Time!

This post is sponsored by goPure Beauty

Whether you buy a $10 eye cream at Walgreens or a $120 moisturizer at Macy’s, you can bet that the  pretty packaging and the glitzy advertising account for a big chunk of the price. Mass and class beauty brands spend oodles on bottles and boxes beckoning you to buy them, and on ads designed to lure you into the store in the first place. These over-the-top expenses are part of the price tag.  That’s a deep, dark beauty industry secret!

It’s about time someone formulated an exceptional skincare collection with the most potent, active ingredients for aging skin, minus the snazzy packaging and gargantuan advertising budgets. And, at the lowest possible prices. Someone has! Erin Driess sold big brand beauty products online for years, but wanted to satisfy her customers’ repeated requests for a high-quality skincare line, at super affordable prices. goPure Beauty was born, and women from Florida to Oregon are loving what its serums, moisturizers, creams, and gels are doing for their skin, at prices they can’t believe!

“I have had this system for only a few weeks and am already seeing a difference in my skin. I am 54 and nobody can believe it. The appearance of fine lines on my forehead and between my eyes are diminishing. I have had discoloration on my neck and I am already seeing a change in how that looks as well.  You have a devoted customer now,” wrote Linda from Allentown, PA.

Complete Anti-Wrinkle Power Trio

The goPure Beauty “system” Linda adores features skincare serums with some of the most powerful ingredients in the industry: Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.  Its Vitamin C Serum includes an extract of the rare Kakadu plum, from Northern Australia, that contains more than 100 times the Vitamin C of an average orange.  Its Hyaluronic Acid Serum is designed to deeply hydrate these skin, and contains a plant-derived extract that mimics the effects of Hyaluronic Acid naturally produced in our tissues. And, the main ingredient in the goPure Retinol Serum is a Retinoid that has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and is far less prone to cause irritation than traditional Retinol.

Although Erin explains that each woman will experience different results, she says that “together, these serums are a complete skin care power trio for women over 40, created by one of the top independent professional laboratories in the business that formulates for some of the best known, prestige skin care brands and dermatologists.” Erin asked the U.S. lab to develop highly effective formulas, with proven active ingredients, and she made sure to eliminate unnecessary expenses by using simple, but sturdy, packaging that still keeps the products stable. When you buy goPure products directly online, you’re paying the same price stores would pay, but without their exorbitant 100 percent markup. That’s right. The department store paid about $75 for a serum they sell to you for $150.  

Other exceptional products in the goPure collection include Microdermabrasion Resurfacing Exfoliator Cream with natural enzymes to lift dead skin cells and reveal beautiful, glowing skin; All Day Facial Moisturizing Cream with Vitamin C to infuse your skin with nutrient rich Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Green Tea and keep it deeply hydrated throughout the day, and Pure Vitamin C Cleanser, a natural and gentle formula with nourishing herbal and antioxidant ingredients to remove pore-clogging toxins and leave your skin feeling hydrated and fresh.

It’s Called goPure Because It Is  

What’s more, the goPure beauty line absolutely doesn’t have parabens, artificial fragrances, propylene glycol, hydroquinone, formaldehyde, SLS, or dyes. “We guarantee that our products are the highest purity possible,” Erin stresses. 

Erin also wants to make it easy for every woman to choose the best products for her skin, so she’s put together sets of complementary products that work well together.  But whatever you choose, from a single product to the most comprehensive Premium Youth Glow Skin Care System featuring 10 products, you’ll be astounded and thrilled by the sensible prices. Plus, you order when you want. goPure never autoships or autobills.

“I ordered the kit with Vitamin C Cleanser, Serum and Moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid and Eye Gel. I am on my second order now and I added the Retinol Duo.  I have NEVER been happier! As an aesthetician, I have used soooooo much in my life, from the cheapest to the most expensive, and believe me when I say this product delivers!!!” wrote Michelle Herrera from Texas.
