{#Beauty Review} My daytime/night-time #skincare one-two punch! @PURattitude + #RadiantwithAVEENO #SleepoverInfluenster

I've been using a skincare regimen that's been really showing positive results for me and I just had to share it with you!

I'm a big fan of serums and have been using PUR Attitude's 'Fountain of Youth' Serum during the day and in the evening after removing makeup I have been using Aveeno's Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream and  I can tell you this combination has been a major one/two punch for my skin, they have been doing so much for my skin that even family and friends have noticed a difference, and what I love is how quickly I noticed the difference using them.

By Day: About PUR Attitude 'Fountain of Youth Serum':

This non-toxic, anti-aging serum combines peptide science with an exclusive blend of Hyaluronix technology to visibly increase the collagen and elastin matrix for firmer skin and less visible wrinkles. It's dubbed as a Botox alternative and much like the Fountain of Youth of Lore, is said to be able to 'turn back the hands of time'!

Dramatic Results Include:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - a 754% Increase in skin oxygenation
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - a 128% Boost in collagen
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - a 90% Increase in skin hydration
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - an 85% Increase in cell renewal
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - a 56% Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles

A 1 fl oz bottle is equal to a 6 to 8 week supply! (I am so happy I got a chance to meet the team behind this fantastic brand at Beauty Press Spotlight Day last year, you can see our original coverage of it HERE)

My Take:

I normally like to let each product have it's own day in the sun and feature them seperately, but because they have worked so well for me using them daily in tandem, I had to share them with you together. The day serum isn't cheap at $90 for the 1 fl oz, but for me price isn't nearly as important as efficacy is. This product works, and I noticed a difference immediately, and on the few days that I don't use it, I notice it and that says alot because I'm using quality cosmetics. So if on a day I don't use the serum I can still notice a difference made up, then that's proof in the pudding it's doing what it says it does! What I love is that a very little goes a long way with this. My skin is oil/acne prone and this did not clog my pores and just makes my skin feel incredible and the firming properties are really noticeable!

As you guys know I have been testing Aveeno Active Naturals before receiving this wonderful bundle of love from Influenster (which included a sleep mask, how cute is that?), you can read HERE for our previous coverage of the line, but I can tell you that despite using such a phenomenal serum by day, after I wash off my makeup when I go to put my Aveeno Active Naturals Intensive Night Cream on, my skin literally drinks it in! I love the scent and even make sure to put it on my neck and decolletage at night too! It makes my face feel softer and smoother and in a very short time I noticed a difference in brown spots and my skin's luminosity. I have a lot of brown spots and acne scars which I normally cover up with makeup if I get enough time before running out the door in the morning. With  this night cream I actually feel like I'm addressing the problem in a way that makes a more permanent difference than makeup can alone. And at $16.99 for the 17 oz jar this one is definitely a steal!

These are both working very well as a skin 'tag team' of sorts! And considering my skin is oily/acne prone, I love that neither one clog my pores, nor do they make my skin feel greasy in any way. On days where time is crazy and I forget to use either one I do see a difference and it's a great reminder to stick to this effective skin care routine!

  1. I have tried Aveeno day cream and I really like it. It really moisturizes my skin and I love that it also has spf sun protection.
