Murad Retinol Youth Renewal & Beauty Spray Launch

Probably one of the biggest perks of the job is getting to meet with some of our favorite brands and see products that aren’t even out yet! We’re big fans of Dr. Murad, and the skincare brand which is adding some new products to their powerhouse Resurgence collection! Thanks to their breakthrough Tri-Active technology, their new Retinol Youth Renewal products contain a fast-acting retinoid that accelerates anti-aging results by giving your cellular turnover a super boost. Allow me to decode: Basically its time released retinol that acts like a magnet to enhance your skin’s receptivity to the benefits of retinol. So not only are you getting a product formulated with retinol, you’re getting a product that helps your skin enhance the effects of it! And we’re all about Retinol at night so color us excited! The new launch includes a Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream and the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum, as well as a new one-of-a kind product.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Murad, read any of his books, or know anything about him (in addition to creating his incredible skincare line, Murad), you know his commitment to health and beauty runs inside and out. Today, I’m partnering with the brand in going EyesUp meaning I’ll be going dark this afternoon on social media for 24 hours with the intention of converting that time and energy to more meaningful things. Like playing with my dog, spending time with my mom while she’s in town without my phone in my hand (she gets in at 2pm so I’ll definitely be dark by then!), playing cards with my boyfriend instead of staring at a computer screen — and if we’re really getting crazy, maybe have that art night we’ve been planning for the last year.

I have always had skin that was on the oilier side (especially in my T-zone) and am constantly on the hunt for the best products to keep my skin feeling clean and my make up in place.  There is nothing worse than checking yourself out in the mirror halfway through the day to see most of your make up has slid off, especially in the warmer weather.  Here are some of current go tos!

Murad Launches Youth Builder Body Care line and More!


Last week, I had so much fun catching up with one of my favorite dermatologists, Dr. Howard Murad. Since our last encounter he’s written another book, as well as launched some new products and a body care line! Here’s what’s new:

Beauty Travel Essentials: 12 Products that Got me Through Africa

Let me tell you, when you spend 20 days traveling through dust and sand, while being unable to drink much less brush your teeth with tap water, it takes some solid beauty products to keep everything in check. And considering I was basically on the line of the equator for most of my trip efficatious SPF products were a must. While I didn’t pack any hair products that knocked my socks off (now that I’m home I need to bathe in leave-in conditioners), I made some outstanding face, body, mouth choices — and here are the products that stood out: 

Supergoop!, Crest 3d, Reach, Nivea

7 Great Gift Ideas for Dad + Win Taun Skincare for Him!

We’re keeping it simple this year and sticking to the basics since men are complicated enough to shop for. And while ties didn’t make our list, that’s mainly because that’s the one thing my dad says every year “no more ties”. (Under other circumstances I’d approve.) 7 great gifts for men:

1. A solid moisturizer – most men neglect a basic moisturizer as part of their daily routine. Not only is it great for their overall complexion, but also anti-aging. Which is why we’re giving away 2 bottles of Taun, specifically formulated for him!

Taun Facial Repair Formula ($79/1.7oz) is a household favorite in my humble abode. All dad needs to know is it feels good and helps hydrate his skin (he’ll like it, it absorbs quickly into skin and feels very refreshing). Why we love it: It’s dermatologist-approved, and packed with anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients to help keep him looking young. The special blend of 13 ingredients, including retinol, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin-C esters, peptides, jojoba oil, and apricot kernel oil, are designed to stimulate collagen production, neutralize free radicals (aka damage from the sun), even skin tone and color, and strengthen skin cell barrier.

WIN IT! We’re giving away 2 bottles of Taun 1 on this blog on 1 on twitter!
