{#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)

By Night: About AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Brightens and evens skin tone
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Reduces skin dullness and improves luminosity
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Helps banish Brown Spots
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Proven concentration of Active Naturals Total Soy Complex boosted with tone-evening vitamin B3

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!

I'm Getting Positvely Radiant with Aveeno®! #AVEENOActiveNaturals

When your use of a brand spans your entire lifetime to date, you know it's a brand you can trust. While my memory doesn't go back that far, Mama Butterfly tells me I suffered from severe heat rash even as an infant, and when she checked with the doctor about what to do, instead of a prescription for something chemicals laden and bad for any skin, nevertheless an infant's, the Doctor recommended she use Aveeno® products on my skin and she tried it and it worked like a charm. So my first introduction to the brand goes back a long way!

She was impressed with how well my skin responded to the products then, and it still works just as well for me now, my skin thankfully is not as sensitive now as it was then, but it is acne prone and like most skin, reflects bad habits like lack of sleep, poor eating habits, or sensitivity since I test out a wide variety of products. But my Doctor's advice then, still holds true now, use products on your skin that you can pronounce ALL the ingredients for.

I just got introduced to some new products from Aveeno®, and before I even started putting them to the test, I was impressed with the ingredients list for Aveeno® Active Naturals products:

Moisture: OAT - Colloidal Oatmeal, a rich mixture of components found in Oat Seed

Skin Tone: SOY - Soy Complex helps to naturally even out skin tone and texture

Redness: FEVERFEW - has anti-irritant and anti-oxidant abilities,  improves the appearance of redness and calms irritated skin

Nourish: WHEAT - Helps to replenish moisture

Youthfulness: SHITAKE - Works in harmony with  your skin's unique chemistry

Softness: SEAWEED - is rich is VITAMINS (ahem some very pricey beauty products contain this ingredient at 10 times or more the price! Just saying!)

Antioxidant: SOUTHERNWOOD - fortifies your skin's moisture barrier

Botanical: LUPINE - essential amino acids are found in this plant!

Water Repellant: LOTUS - in this instance the use of Lotus repelling water is a GOOD thing, it helps the sunscreen formulas to adhere to your skin even when it's wet so you have continuous sun protection.

Sometimes it's what NOT in a product that speaks volumes! Natural ingredients soothe your skin so you end up feeling not only softer and smoother, but you can combat redness, irritation and protect your skin's moisture barrier!

Here is a picture of the products I have been testing out:

Aveeno Active Naturals and Positively Radiant Moisturizers/Lotions for Face and Body

What I tried:


My Take:

This is where science meets nature to make products that are good for your skin! You know how much I love sharing affirmations and meditations, so today repeat after me 'I affirm that I deserve and have beautiful, youthful and healthy skin!'. I start with the Skin Brightening Cleanser in the morning and then the apply the Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 (as I lost my Auntie Butterfly to skin cancer, products that protect from the harmful UVA/UVB rays is incredibly important to me!), at night I remove any makeup with the Cleansing Pads (one side is gently textured so it will help to mildly exfoliate your skin, and the other is soft and has foaming skin cleansers and natural soy extract), and then on alternating nights in addition to removing makeup with the pads I will also use the skin brightening daily scrub. (Cleansing Pad Tip: I like to take along a few of the cleansing pads in a clear plastic bag, they are great pre gym workout to help you remove any foundation so you don't sweat the makeup into your eyes which burns!). Do something good for your skin each and every day and trust me when I tell you that you use less makeup when you have a good skin regimen in place!
