Brunchin’ with SkinCeuticals!

I’m obsessed with skincare, and one of my favorite lines is SkinCeuticals.  I was thrilled to be invited to a luncheon hosted by SkinCeuticals, where we got to learn more about their clinical research on Atmospheric Skin Aging, which was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.

It’s no secret why SkinCeuticals is so popular with dermatologists, doctors and aestheticians everywhere – they stand out in a sea of skincare brands because their science is solid.  Every single one of their products reflects the research, science and technology they have mastered. SkinCeuticals has been researching atmospheric aggressors for over 30 years, and the aging associated with it, Atmospheric Skin Aging, is caused by basically everything around us – UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation (IR), visible light (even your kitchen lights!), air pollution, ozone pollution, particulate matter, and cigarette smoke!! Ahhhh! So what does this really mean for our skin!? All of these aggressors cause cellular damage which triggers contributes to skin again! Nobody wants that!

Through years of research, SkinCeuticals discovered that certain combinations of antioxidants perform better together and brings about better results then they do individually. Their antioxidants neutralize the free radicals induced by ozone pollution exposure to help reduce all this damage that has been caused by the exposure to ozone pollution! One of my favorites and one of their most popular products C E Ferulic, which is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that give you 8 times the protection that your skin has naturally. It’s a breakthrough antioxidant that is a combination of L-ascorbic acid and alpha tocopherol, combined with ferulic acid, which doubles the performance and protects against UV rays, free radicals, and cellular damage that causes premature skin aging! Research has shown a 96% reduction of sunburn cells in TV irradiated skin!

My skin is super dry, super sensitive, and is prone to hyperpigmentation, so this product is a miracle worker. After just using the product for two weeks, I’ve seen such an improvement in the tone and texture of my skin!! I love trying new products, but when I find one that works, I keep it in rotation, and this one is going to stay in my routine. It’s perfect for all skin types and also improves the appearance of wrinkles of loss of firmness!

If your skin is more oily/combination, then Phloretin CF is perfect for you! It’s formulated with l-ascorbic acid and ferulic acid, as well as phloretin, which helps improve cell turnovers neutralizes damaging free radicals, which will improve the overall appearance of your skin and help with discoloration, without being overly nourishing for already oily skin.

Another one of my favorites is the H.A. Intensifier!!!! If you have dry skin like me, this is the perfect product for you. Hyaluronic acid is a super important to maintaining your skin’s natural biomechanical properties, and it helps regulate moisture levels in kin. This product helps to renew plumpness, elasticity, and firmness. The appearance of crows feet, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines are reduced and it even refines your skin’s complexion!

The most important step in my skincare routine is to WEAR SPF!!!!!! It is so important especially when you are out in the sun, but a lot of people don’t realize that even if you spend most of your time indoors, you still need it! I absolutely love SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50!! This product is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen that is formulated with oil-absorbing aerated silica technology which leaves a smooth and mattified finish with the broad spectrum UV protection you need! No one ever wants to look oily, so this product is perfect, especially for those hot and humid days!

I am so  grateful to have been a part of this super informative luncheon with SkinCeuticals, and can’t wait to add more of their amazing products to my skincare routine now that I know I have to protect my skin against Atmospheric Skin Aging! Cheers to beautiful and protected skin! XOXO

In Sponsorship with SkinCeuticals and all opinions are my own! Obsessed!

Papyrus X Judith Leiber Couture Collaboration

As you all know by now, Papyrus is my favorite card company and the only place I get my cards! And, as you may have observed in my posts, Judith Leiber is my favorite special occasion (and really any occasion!) bag to use! So, when I heard about the collaboration between Papyrus and Judith Leiber, I was more then excited because it is a match made in heaven!!!

Judith Leiber Couture bags are known for their extravagant and embellished gems, which translates perfectly when combined with Papyrus’ beautiful cards. This year, Judith Leiber joins Papyrus’ Designer Collaboration Series, which debuted in 2016 with renowned designers Zang Toi and Lela Rose. This was the first collaboration of its kind in the greeting card industry, which makes it even more special and unique.

I absolutely LOVE sweets and anything multi-colored/colorful so this ice cream cone card basically has all of my favorite things in one place. It’s so adorable and will definitely brighten your and the special someone who receives this card’s day! Buy The Ice Cream Cone Birthday Card here!

Continuing with the sweets theme, I am also obsessed with this cupcake card, which is perfect for a birthday or any occasion that you want to add some whimsy to! Who doesn’t love a cupcake?! Buy The Pink Cupcake Birthday Card here!

The detail in each and every Papyrus is always done perfectly and that’s what makes them so special. I love the unicorn because it’s so playful and fun! This card is the perfect way to make someone feel special, and its works for practically every occasion! Buy The Gemmed Unicorn Card here!

I don’t even have words for this card – look at these details!! HUNDREDS of shimmering gems were lovingly applied to this handcrafted card. Everyone needs this card in their life, it’s so special. Buy The Black and Blue Butterfly Card here!

This is another one of my favorites from this collection because of my love for flowers. This card is so beautiful and simple at the same time. It’s amazing because on the back of every card you’ll find a photo of each original Judith Leiber Couture bag, which is the inspiration for all of the cards!! Buy The Pink Orchid Thank You Card here!

Another stunner. So gorgeous and elegant. I recently used this swan bag at a wedding I attended, and people were dying over it! Buy The Gemmed Swan Card here!

I mean, how gorgeous is this whole collection? Complete perfection, if you ask me!! I’ve highlighted just a few of my favorite cards from the collaboration – there are so many more beautiful cards to choose from!
