Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum

 I am a huge proponent of anti aging serums. I have written about the benefits of serums in previous anti aging posts because I sincerely believe they work. I have been using anti aging serums for a couple of years now and my skin looks and feels wonderful. At first I thought maybe it was just myself who noticed a difference in the texture and clarity of my skin, but lately I have been receiving lots and lots of compliments from friends and people in the beauty industry! ...more

Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-aging Serum: My Thoughts (and a giveaway!)

It’s like my face decided this year that it was going to start acting its age; though I am 40 and spent more time in college in a tanning bed or on a beach sans sunscreen than in a lecture hall, I’ve had pretty great skin. However lines are starting to be more pronounced and I’m getting little lines around the eyes and mouth. I have sun damage; a brown spot on my left cheek that arrived a decade ago and far more freckles than I had as a child. I’m the poster child for PREVAGE® and was thrilled to be able to try it....more

PREVAGE® Skincare

For me, trying new skincare products brings a level of excitement comparable to Christmas morning. As an aesthetician, I love the whole experience of testing out skincare: judging the consistency, smell, feel and effectiveness of a product is a rush!  Elizabeth Arden’s PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum did not disappoint. This product does it all: reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and (my personal favorite) reduces the appearance of sun damage!...more

Anti-aging Skincare for Faces Over 40

Do you remember your 20-something skin? I do, and boy would I give anything to go back and appreciate it more. Great skin was easy; I just rolled out of bed (without very little sleep, I might add), washed my face and put on a little makeup. My skin tone was so even that I didn't even wear foundation back then! Sadly, I didn't wear sunscreen either and if I'm being totally honest, I spent more time in tanning beds in college than I want to admit....more

LBS Beauty Review: Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum

Earlier this year I turned the big 2-8. Yes, your girl is 28 years old, hence my Year of 28 PJ party bash. I hardly tell my age people because they're normally either appalled that I'm not younger (based on my appearance) or surprised that I'm not older (based on my personality). I don't know which one is worse! Anyhow, now that I've put my age on the table, let's talk about it. I have a confession to make. I have this weird fear of getting old....more

Tips for Investing in Your Skin

Making sure that I’m getting enough sleep and drinking enough water has really become a priority for me now. I used to get away with staying up ‘til all hours of the night [I’d say I was ‘creative’ and I ‘worked better at night’ when really, I was just unorganized and I would procrastinate and not plan. I’m even more creative now and I get up early and function on a business schedule. Night owls of the world, you can change!]....more

Skin Win: PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum

Speaking serum is something I’ve done with fluency only within the past two or three years, when maintaining my skin’s luminosity and elasticity became a priority. Basically, I want to fossilize my skin as it is now. In my 20s, I’d use serums sporadically, mostly in lieu of heavier creams in the warmer months. But now, as I careen into my *ahem* mid-thirties, I’m incorporating the information I’ve gleaned from dermatologists, scientists and product development executives after attending multiple skin-care launches where I’ve discussed many a peptide. ...more

Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-aging Daily Serum

Ever since having baby Cohen, my skin has been in need of a major makeover. Before getting pregnant, I had very dry skin but then it became more oily during my pregnancy. Now with getting less sleep and my hormones all mixed up I have needed a change up in my everyday skincare. This anti-aging serum is exactly what I have been looking for. I have read that getting less than 8 hours of sleep can cause your skin to look more tired resulting in looking older....more

4 Ways to Wear Ballet Flats

I truly believe in investing in some key pieces that are essential to a complete wardrobe. Ballet flats are one of those items. They can be worn many ways (as I am going to show you), are nicer than just wearing flip flops and if you get a good quality pair, they are comfortable! So today I am going to show you how to style this staple with 4 ways to wear ballet flats!...more
