Heaven + URTH Skincare’s Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm

 

Dry Skin

I am dreading the long, cold winter months. This year I have more reason to dread them. For the past 17+ years I’ve been a stay at home/work from home mom. Now I work part time out of the home. The idea of driving in snow and ice already worries me – and it’s still summer time!

I don’t mind the snow and cold as long as I don’t have to drive in it.

The #1 thing that bothers me the most about the cold weather months is how incredibly dry my skin gets from head to toe. No matter what I do I can’t avoid dry skin.

I’d like to consider myself a moisturizer “snob”. I have tired so many over the years that I know what what works and what doesn’t. I’ll try new products and new and improved products, but it takes a lot to impress me. I usually stick with the same few brands because I know they work and they help my dry, cracked, irritated skin.

I was sent to review an all natural skincare product from Heaven + URTH Skincare called Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm. According to the product’s press release;

Beelieve Facebook

The product was organically inspired out of the treatment rooms at A Little Touch of Heaven Skincare Spa & Boutique in Newport Beach, Calif., and is designed to renew and balance the skin leaving it with a soft, supple and glowing complexion with long-term benefits working to revitalize the skin over time.

Crystal Surmanian and Tanya Robertson, Beelieve product co-developers, were motivated to create the nourishing treatment balm after noticing an overwhelming trend toward their clients’ skin being overly dehydrated. After years of research, the two formulated a multi-purpose balm that fights free radicals and oxidative stress while deeply rehydrating the skin.

“Ninety percent of the people who came in through our spa doors had major skin dehydration problems,” says Surmanian. “Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm is formulated with oils that will help kill bacteria and hydrate the skin without clogging the pores. The oils we use are very similar to the sebum that our skin produces naturally.”

Beelieve balm is made up of nine all-natural ingredients including olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, vitamin E, calendula oil, beeswax, lavender oil and orange oil. The balm is esthetician-approved and free of parabens, fragrances and sulfates and is an environmentally-friendly product. The product can be used as treatment for the face, hands, feet, eyes and lips and acts as a moisturizer and makeup primer and remover.

“I’m obsessed with Beelieve!” says Real Housewives of Orange County star, Lizzie Rovsek, who is a loyal consumer of the balm. “I want a bathtub full of it so I can bathe in it!”

Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm can be purchased on www.etsy.com, www.amazon.com and at A Little Touch of Heaven Skincare Spa & Boutique at 3363 Via Lido, Newport Beach, CA 92663. It is available in a convenient travel-sized 2 oz. jar for $39.00 and the full-size 4 oz. jar retails for $73.00.

“We want to educate the public to not be afraid of an oil for the face. In fact, most of our clients’ skin is craving this type of moisture,” says Robertson. “Our clients have become obsessed with this niche product that gives you instant glow. Every jar has our heart and soul in it.”

I received a 2 ounce jar to review. It might sound like a small jar but let me tell you a little bit goes a long way. This jar will last me a long time.

The Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm comes in a burlap-type sack with a cute wooden spoon attached.

Beelieve

The balm looks like petroleum jelly as far as the look and color. The texture is not the same. It starts out “goopy” (for lack of a better description) but the moment you start to rub it on your skin it quickly “melts” and turns into an oil.

A teeny, tiny amount is enough to cover both hands which tend to be the driest area on my body.

Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm can be used on your face, hands, body – anywhere where you need extra moisture and hydration. You can use it to cover big areas (like your hands) or just dab a little on any dry patches you might have.

Uses

The product is oily when you apply it to your skin but it does appear to absorb quickly enough. If you find that you have a greasy residue on your skin most likely you applied too much or you didn’t rub it in well enough. That happened to me the first time I used it on my hands. I used way too much.

The product has a pleasant smell. I can’t pinpoint what it smells like to me, but my husband tells me it smells like citrus. He tells me it has a lemon-orange scent. I agree that it does have a bit of a citrus scent but it reminds me of something else that I can’t quite think of what it is. None the less it’s a pleasant scent.

So far I am really enjoying the product. I like that it leaves my hands feeling soft and smooth (and nice smelling!). My hands were really dry before I started to use the product on a regular basis. They are much better now. Even my cuticles seem softer.

I have used the balm on spots here and there too. I sometimes get dry patches on my face so I have dabbed a little of the balm on the spots and it has helped a lot. Because the product is made with natural ingredients I feel OK about applying it to my face.

Ingredients

 

I’ve used it to remove mascara. I don’t like waterproof mascara because it’s hard to remove. The mascara I have been using is NOT waterproof but it’s just as difficult to remove. The  Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm helps to remove it quickly and easily. I just dab a little on a cotton ball and gently rub it on to my lashes. An added bonus is that its moisturizing the delicate skin around my eyes too.

I might start applying this to the heels of my feet soon too so that I can avoid dry, cracked winter heels. I’ll put on cotton socks after application so that I don’t slide around on the tile floor or get the product all over the carpet.

If your skin needs help with moisture and hydration you should check out Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm. Visit www.BeelieveBalm.com. The company is currently offering free shipping with purchase.

Beelieve Balm can also be found on the various social media sites. The links are found on the brand’s home page.

Royal Revolution by Katy Perry

 

katy-perry-royal-revolution

I’m a big fan of scents. I love air freshners, oils, wax tarts, spray and perfumes. I never leave the house without wearing a spritz or two of perfume. I treat perfume like a fashion accessory. Your look is not complete without a lovely perfume.

Sometimes when I’m out and about someone will walk past me wearing a wonderful perfume or cologne. It makes me wonder what the scent is. It sometimes leaves a lasting impression. I hope I can have the same effect on someone with the perfume that I wear.

Funny story… when I was a teen I went to Paris with my family. All over Paris people were wearing a perfume that my mother couldn’t stand but I loved. I didn’t know what it was called. All I knew is that I loved the scent.

About a year later we were on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. There was no way we could afford anything sold there, but it was fun to window shop.

We came across a designers store. When we walked past the store I smelled the perfume that I had smelled in Paris. Sure enough I found the perfume! I had to buy a bottle (I could only afford a small bottle). I wore it every day until I finished the bottle. My mother was not too pleased since she didn’t like the scent.

I think it’s interesting that a lot of celebrities are coming out with their own perfumes. Some celebrity perfumes leave me scratching my head asking why and how this person was able to get their own perfume. For others it just makes sense that they had their own perfume because they have their own unique style. Katy Perry is such a person.

Katy has a new perfume that is beautiful as it is bold and as royal as it is rebellious – a lot like Katy herself.

The scent is called Royal Revolution.

“In some ways wearing fragrance is like putting on an invisible suit of luxurious armor. I want Royal Revolution to inspire women to make their own rules and embrace the idea that beauty and inner confidence can come together to become your secret weapon.” – Katy Perry

I have a hard time picking out the scents used to make perfumes. I couldn’t tell you a top note from a bottom note. LOL!

Royal Revolution Katy Perry

Here is a description of what Royal Revolution is made of.

Royal Revolution ($49, 1.7 oz.) is a tempting and irresistible floral fragrance with tantalizing top notes of pink freesia kissed by the nectar of ruby-red pomegranate captivate the senses. Middle notes of sandalwood balanced with sheer orange flower and velvety jasmine petals create a soft, delicate floral heart guarded by the Mystical Blackthorn. Sexy musk and soft vanilla orchid linger on the skin, ensuring an unrivaled and unforgettable dry-down.

Royal Revolution is a light and airy scent. I don’t find it strong at all. It’s a great “everyday” scent – one you can wear to work and on a night on the town.

I can sense the freesia and the jasmine. It has a light floral scent. With a name like Royal Revolution I would think this would have a strong scent, but it doesn’t. That is fine with me. I tend to lean towards light scents.

The bottle is beautiful! It’s very regal and fitting for the perfume. It looks like a jewel with a very royal looking cap. The only downside is that the bottle doesn’t stand up. Due to it’s shape it lies down flat on the counter.

The color of the bottle is beautiful too. I wish the photo did it justice.

Katy Perry’s Royal Revolution is available where most perfumes are sold.

This Killer Queen is destined to lead a Royal Revolution. The Scent of Victory!

Alurent Anti-Aging and Instant Erasure Serum

Alurent

When I think back to when I was a young girl I have to laugh. Back then I thought anyone over 30 was “old”. I was a silly kid. Of course 30 is not old. I don’t really consider anyone “old” until they are past retirement age and well in to their 70′s and 80′s. Then again, I know plenty of people who should be considered old to have more energy and life then people in their 30′s. My great-great uncle was bowling when he was in his 90′s and died at the ripe old age of 103.

I’m in my mid-40′s. I don’t feel like a forty something year old. I’m young at heart. I feel younger then I actually am. I have also had people tell me they were surprised to hear how old I am because I act much younger than my chronological age.

The only part I hate about getting older are the visible signs of aging – gray hair (or in my case gray, silver and white) and wrinkles. I can color my hair (and recently did), but it’s not always easy to cover up or rid yourself of fine lines and wrinkles, not without the help of anti-aging products.

I had the opportunity to try one such product to review. It’s called Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum. This new, patented skin care product helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and give you a smoother complexion in just 90 seconds. You read that correctly – 90 seconds.

Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Serum has a unique formula that tightens sagging skin and visibly smooths creases and tighten wrinkles.

I am grateful that I don’t have a lot of deep wrinkles (yet). So far I just have some sagging skin under my eyes and wrinkles around the outside of my eyes. I also have deep wrinkles around my mouth (“laugh lines”?).

Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Serum is easy to use. First you need me make sure your skin is clean and dry. Then take a small amount of the serum and GENTLY massage it on to the area you want to apply it to. Then stay still for a couple of minutes until the serum dries. The results are smoother skin.

It’s almost as if the serum “freezes” your skin so that wrinkles and creases can’t form. It doesn’t sting and it doesn’t feel tight or sticky. You skin feels “normal” and you can apply moisturizer and make up on it once it dries. It also washes off easily too.

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, mostly around my eyes.

I tried to take decent “before and after” photos. I have to use my cellphone because my regular camera doesn’t have a lense for close up photos (not yet anyway, I’m saving up to buy one). These are the best I could get with my phone. The “before” photos are to the left and the “after” are to the right.

Review Photos

I tried to take photos without makeup (top and bottom) and one with make up (center).

You can sort of make out how much smoother my under eye area looks in the “after” photos. The top photo is my right eye and the bottom photo is my left eye. I took them on different days.

With the center photo you can see the difference much clearer. I wore eye make up to look a bit better (I look horrible without a little mascara and eye liner). You can see how my eyes are less “puffy” underneath and look smoother.

Here are some other “before” and “after” photos taken by real people (with cellphone cameras too).

88642eb4-07ac-11e4-a504-22000af93a2d

I’m impressed.

I don’t always have time in the morning to have a “beauty routine”. Things are going to get more chaotic next month when my kids go back to school. We’ll have four people fighting for time in the bathroom. That is why I need products that work quickly and work well so that I am in/out of the bathroom quickly.

Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum has a combination of carefully chosen ingredients that not only give you instant results but also when used daily will help your skin have a younger, more radiant appearance over time.

Alurenat Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum is a temporary injection-free alternative to quickly, easily and effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’m all for remedies that don’t require surgery or injections.

Ready, Set, Glow with spa quality products from Conair

Cartoon

I was a stay at home/work from home mom for 17 years. I can give you a million reasons why I loved being at home with my kids and working from home. There are obvious reasons (being there for my family, not having to deal with traffic, get work done while still in my pajamas…). I have to admit one of my favorite reasons is not having to worry about doing my hair and make up if I didn’t want to. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t look like a fumpy old lady 24/7, but it was nice to just toss my hair up in a pony tail and slap on minimal make up. I always looked decent.

Now I have a job outside of the home. I have to get dressed up again. Not overly dressed up (thankfully) but a bit more than shorts or a pair of sweatpants.

Now that I am working in a professional environment I like to look my best too. I plan on purchasing nicer clothes once I have the money as well.

These days I need to do something a bit more with my hair than just throw it up in a ponytail. I can wear it in a ponytail if I want to. I would rather wear my hair down. I think my hair down makes me look better too.

I don’t have time to go to a salon to get my hair done. That’s OK with me, especially when I can use salon quality products at home and save time and money.

I was sent to review two products from Conair. Both can help me look my best with only a minimal time investment.

I have a lot of hair. My hair is very thick, course and long. Blow drying my hair normally takes forever that is why I find it easier to pull it back in a ponytail.

I was sent to review the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer. As hair dryers go, this is the “race car” model. LOL!

The Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer cuts drying time almost in half. That means it takes less time for me to blow dry my hair compared to other hair dryers.

Dry 1

Saving time is super important to me. Especially in the morning when I am rushing to get ready for work. Often I take a shower at night just so my hair has more time to dry. When I shower in the morning I often go to work with damp hair because I simply don’t have the time to devote to drying my hair fully with the hair dryer.

With the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer I can take showers in the morning again (which I prefer to do) because I can get my hair dried and styled in time so I’m not late for work or go into work with damp hair.

This is a salon quality hair dryer, something you would expect to see in a fancy (expensive!) hair salon.

With this being summer time humidity is a constant problem. I my thick, course hair is wavy and when the humidity is high my hair puffs up and gets really frizzy and dull looking. With the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer your hair will have 75% less frizz then it would with other dryers. In the summer time less frizz is a must!

I took a before/after photo of my hair using the Infiniti Pro hair dryer. The photo to the left is what my hair looked like from using my other hair dryer (I had taken a shower in the AM). The picture to the right is after I took a shower this evening an used the Conair dryer.

Hair

Notice how my hair on the right looks less frizzy and I was able to get it to blow try more straight than wavy like it is on the left.

I have to laugh when I hear about the Blow Out Bars that have been popping up all over the place. Why pay someone to blow dry your hair when you can do the same thing at home with the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer? You get the same exact salon quality results but in less time and it costing a lot less too.

I like that you can concentrate the air to specific spots on your head. This is great when you are styling your hair. I tend to focus airflow on the top and sides to style my hair. It helps get the job done quickly. I can get smooth hair – and even curls – with the hair dryer and a brush.

The hair dryer has an AC motor that delivers more powerful, fast, airflow for styling ease with rocker switches for heat and airflow control. The dryer is also guaranteed to have up to 3x longer life. Trust me, there is nothing worse than your dryer dying out on your in the middle of using it. I’ve had that happen before.

Dry 2

The Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance hair dryer is available at most mass retail and drug chain stores. The average price is $55.99. You can also check out the “Where to Buy” section on the Conair website -http://conair.com/where-to-buy-cn-15.html

Conair also sent me the Conair true glow™ Sonic Skincare Solution. I LOVE this product! My skin NEEDS this product.

The Conair true glow™ Sonic Skincare Solution is a facial scrub brush that really cleanses and cleans your skin. It comes with two different brushes – one for your face and one for your body. It’s been Dermatologist tested for deep cleaning your face and exfoliating your body.

My skin feels so fresh and clean after using it that I don’t even want to think about putting make up on – or moisturizer! I would rather leave my face feeling 100% clean for as long as I can. It’s a really nice feeling. It’s especially nice after a long, stressful day or after sweating from the sweltering heat.

TG1

The Conair true glow™ Sonic Skincare Solution facial brush helps to remove dry skin, dirt and oils from your skin – but in a gentle way. I have sensitive skin and I have not had an problems using this product. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.

I love that it’s rechargeable and it’s half the cost of similar skincare systems. I’m all for saving money. Plus the unit offers you 3 speeds operating at up to 300 oscillations/second so you can find the perfect setting for your skin or skin requirements.

You don’t need to dedicate a long time to using the facial scrub brush. In as little as 60 seconds you can fully clean your skin. I’m sure you have 60 seconds in the morning or evening to give your skin a fabulous cleaning. Plus the facial scrub brush beeps every 10 seconds to remind you to move to another part of your face or body.

The brush doesn’t really rotate but rather it vibrates to loosen up the dirt and debris logged in your pores leaving behind fresh, clean skin.

Why pay a spa big bucks to give your face a professional cleaning when you can do the same exact thing in the comfort of your own home?

I mentioned that the brush also scrubs your body. You can use it in the shower to scrub off dirt, dry skin and other stuff that could lead to clogged pores. I like using it on my elbows, arms and legs – especially after I shave them.

The device is small and compact and can easily sit on your counter top or tucked inside a drawer or the closet.

Face

I tried to get a before/after of my skin but none of the shots turned out good. Not only that it was hard to notice a difference. I know I can certainly feel the difference.

I can see myself using the Conair true glow™ Sonic Skincare Solution facial brush everyday.

Just like with the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 1875 Watt Salon Performance blow dryer you can find Conair true glow™ Sonic Skincare solution facial brush at most mass retailers and chain drug stores. The average retail price is $99.99. You can also look in the “Where to Buy” link (linked above).

For more information about these and other Conair products please visit www.TrueGlow.com and www.Conair.com. You can also find Conair on Facebook.

What do you think about these products? Do they sound like something you’d like to add to your beauty regimen?

MitoQ anti-aging facial skin care

 

Beauty

I’m in my mid-40′s now. Sigh… I feel “old”. Not all the time (thankfully) but there are those days where I have those little kinks and pains associated with getting older. My gray hair doesn’t help either (I need to color my hair again ASAP!). At least my personality is a lot younger than my biological age. Inside I think I’m still a kid at heart.

I always thought I would be able to fight off wrinkles and physical signs of aging for a very long time due to the excess “padding” (aka – fat) in my face. Being overweight means I carry some weight in my face. I figured that plumpness would prevent visible signs of aging on my face for many years to come. I was wrong.

Every day I seem to notice a new little wrinkle forming, and the ones I have around my mouth seem to be getting deeper. Ugh!

A wonderful “perk” to being a blogger is learning about products that I might otherwise never hear of. It’s also great to have the opportunity to review such products. Many times products I review become my new favorites and I purchase them again and again after my review.

A few weeks ago I was sent to review an anti-aging facial skin care product called MitoQ.

Here is a little more information about the product

MitoQ®, a patented anti-aging facial cream for skin rejuvenation. MitoQ® is a scientific breakthrough in anti-aging facial skincare, containing an antioxidant 1000 times more potent than CoQ (a co-enzyme, functional molecule present in every cell in the body).  It is the only topical cream proven to deliver ubiquinone (a molecule that keeps cells active and healthy) to mitochondria at levels shown to have an immense effect in rejuvenating the cells, encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin and leaving skin looking radiant with a lit-from-within glow.

MitoQ® is the brainchild of Dr. Rob Smith and Dr. Michael Murphy. Over a decade ago, they postulated that if they could successfully increase the level of CoQ in our cells, it could have a positive effect on a number of health conditions. Their work culminated in the revolutionary discovery of a targeted CoQ delivery system bringing CoQ straight to the source of free radical generation in the cell – the mitochondria. In essence, their discovery of MitoQ® restores CoQ to youthful levels and supports optimal health of the cell and its function, effectively rejuvenating the cell, improving energy synthesis and significantly reducing concentrations of damaging free radicals.

MitoQ® has been purposely designed to simplify your skincare regime. To truly rejuvenate your skin, simply apply MitoQ® in the morning and again at night after cleansing and toning. MitoQ® has a neutral fragrance, is hypoallergenic and is formulated to replace your moisturizer and deliver the antioxidant protection your skin requires to delay the skin aging process. With the daily use of MitoQ®, skin will become firmer as new and increased collagen reformats and strengthens the skin’s structure.

 

MitoQ Bottle

After reading this information I was thrilled for the opportunity to review it.

I wish I took a photo of the original packaging. It was interesting.

MitoQ comes in a fairly large bottle. A little bit also goes a long way.

It goes on very smoothly. It feels lightweight on my skin which is good because I don’t like the feeling of heavy stuff on my face (it makes me feel like I have to wash it off). It seemed to absorb fairy quickly too.

Please note that this product does not contain an SPF so you’ll need to make sure to apply some on your skin or keep out of the sun. Also, I have a hard time taking photos of my face – or even selfies for that matter. I couldn’t figure out how to take decent before and after photos. I can only do that on my cellphone and my cellphone doesn’t take the best photos (they tend to be grainy).

I wouldn’t say that I have sensitive skin but sometimes my skin does react to products. I had no reaction using MitoQ.

The very first time I used the product my skin felt very soft and smooth. I honestly didn’t want to put make up on after applying it.

After a few days my skin felt even softer. It appeared healthier looking too. I usually look “washed out”. My skin started to have a more healthier looking appearance.

MitoQ Box

I’ve been using the product for a few weeks now. My skin looks like it has more of a “glow” to it. The quality of my skin looks like that of a younger person.

I can’t really say much for the deep wrinkles around my mouth. They look to be about the same however the finer lines on my face appear less noticeable.

The tone of my skin looks better too. I have marks on my face (age spots? freckles?) and they appear less noticeable too. I also think that the pores on my cheeks look smaller.

So far I am pleased with the results. I am curious to see what my skin looks like a few more weeks from now after I’ve had more time to use the product.

If you would like to learn more about MitoQ visit www.MitoQ.com. There you can read up on the science behind this product and make a purchase. MitoQ retails for $119.00.

The only downside to the product is that it’s not “budget-friendly” and it doesn’t contain and SPF. You can remedy that with the addition of a sunscreen and/or avoid the sun.

Have you tried MitoQ before? If you have what did you think about the product? I always love to hear from readers.

Avocados: Not Just For Guacamole!

 

Avocado 2

Are you a fan of that odd looking fruit Avocado? I know a lot of people are crazy for guacamole.

My daughter likes fresh avocado spread on toast or crackers. I’ll eat it sometimes but I’m still not totally on board the “avocado bandwagon”.

I want to like avocado because it’s really good for you. Avocados have a lot of health benefits, not only for your insides but also your skin.

Avocados has anti-acne benefits too. As a mom to teenagers we know all too well about acne, which always seems to appear at the worse times, like class photos.

Several weeks ago we were sent to review a product called TURO SKIN™ Anti-Acne Spot Treatment. TURO SKIN contains an ingredient called 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 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

As an adult I do get breakouts from time to time, but not as often as my teenagers do. I let both my son and daughter try the product out for me. Each gets average breakouts – nothing too severe.

The product comes in a small tube. Since this is a spot treatment you only need to apply it directly to the pimple. It’s clear and seems to dry quickly enough so you or your child can apply it and head out the door without having to wash it off or wait for it to dry. It’s good for both men and women too (both my teen son and teen daughter use it).

Neither of my children had any complaints about the product as far as any weird sensations like burning or itching. Once they applied it they didn’t give it anymore thought. I know from past experiences that there are products that burn, tingle and dry out your skin.

Ingredients

I guess with any skin product there are a lot of factors in play that determine what will, or will not, work for each individual. Some products work great for some and not so great for others. That is the case with TURO SKIN and my kids. The product worked very well with my son. In fact his skin looks better then it has in a long time. He hasn’t had many outbreaks the past few weeks and when something does show up the TURO SKIN seems to take care of it quickly.

The product didn’t work as well with my daughter. Just recently she had to take her senior photos for school and broke that morning. She applied the product but the pimples were still big and red by the time we went for her pictures that afternoon. It’s NOT a “miracle” product and it does need time to work but in this case it didn’t help reduce the size or redness of the pimple. In fact those pimples took a couple of days before they finally started to dissipate.

The few times my daughter used the product it didn’t seem to work as well as it did with my son. I don’t know if hormones come into play or if it’s just that the results differ from each individual.

I would continue to get the product for my son since it worked well for him. For my daughter we’ll have to look for an alternative. It’s funny because my daughter is the one who likes avocados.

If you would like to learn more about the product visit www.TuroSkin.com. The product is available on the website ($22) and select physicians offices nationwide.
