Today, PUR attitude announced that it will donate $25 of for each Wild Durian Fruit Peel sold during the Month of October to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF). NBCF is an organization dedicated as much to the prevention of the disease, as it is to the cure, and holds excellent ratings with independent charity reviewers. PUR attitude chose to work with NBCF due to its alignment with PUR attitude’s own core mission to carry out responsible industry practices by providing carcinogen-free skincare.
“While PUR attitude is a clean beauty brand that focuses on healthy beauty science, October is a month to celebrate pink and everything that color has come to represent in the fight against breast cancer,” said PUR attitude Founder David Pollock. “Our delicately pink Wild Durian Fruit Peel will be a part of giving back to the cause this month.”
Wild Durian Fruit Peel is clinically proven to visibly even out skin tones, wipe away fine lines, and restore vitality and brightness for more youthful looking skin. Due to the activation of rare wild durian fruit, known for its pungent aroma and revered for its advanced anti-aging properties, this product is able to produce these powerful results on the skin without irritation. Wild Durian Fruit Peel is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. These natural ingredients are combined with pure glucosamine, ceramides, as well as extracts of orange, apple, and green tea to detoxify impurities, exfoliate lifeless skin, and unclog pores.
Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s philosophy of “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals and known carcinogens, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes. Further details and samples available upon request.

If you want to bring out the best in your hair, you must be careful when selecting the products that you use. Most hair care products that you buy off of the shelves at grocery or drug stores contain chemicals and other ingredients that actually destroy your hair. It is easy to just purchase a shampoo and/ or conditioner just because it smells amazing, or is on sale, but you get what you pay for!
Thankfully, Phillip Adam Inc. takes the hassle out of having to read labels. Phillip Adam sells products that are biodegradable, paraben free, gluten free, sulfate free, cruelty-free, vegan and safe for the entire family.
Their products are clean, healthy and free of any harsh chemicals. Phillip Adam has developed salon-quality hair care products that can be found in over 600 health food stores, including Whole Foods Markets and Your Good Health Stores etc.
I have always had problems with my hair being too dry and brittle. It always grows to a certain length and then breaks off and looks extremely frizzy. I have tried shampoos and conditioners before that have actually damaged my hair because of the unnatural chemicals in them.
I was given the chance to review Phillip Adam Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Conditioner. I was excited to try these products because apple cider vinegar is very good for the hair. It removes build up from styling products.
Phillip Adam shampoos are based on a refined Apple Cider Vinegar formula this shampoo will help you give your hair the natural care it deserves. Gentle and nourishing, the ACV Shampoos are suitable for fine to normal hair types including colored or virgin heads of hair. They add natural shine and help maintain a healthy pH balanced scalp. Family and pet friendly! Available in several different scents such as Green Apple, Verbena Sage, Orange Vanilla or Unscented as well as Peppermint found in our special Curly Hair Shampoo formula.
After the first wash, I noticed a difference in how my hair felt. It was actually squeaky clean, and so I knew that the build up residue was gone. Due to being free from product residue, my hair had incredible volume! You never realize how much your styling products weigh down your hair until you use a clarifying shampoo such as this one that really works, without stripping your hair of it's natural oils.
Formulated with all natural based ingredients, Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner will keep your hair healthy and well-nourished. Great for the whole family and everyday use, our conditioners gently condition and detangle, help with frizziness, maintain the pH balance and control static electricity to result in soft, shiny and healthy hair. They come in several different scents including Green Apple, Orange Vanilla, Verbena Sage, Unscented as well as the Minty scent found in our special Thirsty Hair Conditioner formula.
The conditioner makes my hair feel soft and silky. I love that. These products make my hair look and feel shiny, healthy and luxurious. I love how it brings my hair alive with radiance, shine and volume.

I have been learning so much about the important health benefits of probiotics. They are crucial to our body's well-being. But I had never really thought about how probiotics could be beneficial to our skin.
Just as probiotics taken internally work to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system, so do probiotics applied directly to the skin. Skin is bombarded daily with an excess of harsh pollutants, chemicals and free radicals, all of which put our skin – our body’s first line of defense – in a state of exhausted, constant crisis.
Live, active probiotics applied topically provide much needed reinforcements for the good bacteria in the skin’s microbiome while neutralizing the harmful bacteria. This allows the skin to find peace, rebalance and reset for an optimum level of health and vibrancy. It all makes sense, right?
LaFlore Skin Care uses the latest innovations in biotechnology to cultivate the power of probiotics, LaFlore™ ’s patent-pending Probiotic Technology delivers a suspended matrix of live, bioactive time released prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics which activate upon application to bolster skin health. and intuitively balance individual skin microbiome. LaFlore products incorporate an impressive combination of nutrient rich – anti-inflammatory ingredients which get to the root of a problem.
Most probiotic lines have one or two probiotic essences in their products. LaFlore™ uses a multitude of diversified flora within all three products. This matrix of actives is then cultivated into three unique cocktails and custom blended to produce results in three distinct phases of application: cleanse-recharge, treat-recover and moisturize -protect. The more variety of bio-available flora, the more opportunity there is for the skin to achieve a state of peace, balance and better skin health.
I was given the chance to review LaFlore Skin Care, and received the following products:
LaFlore® Probiotic Cleanser – Softens, brightens and balances all skin types. The Live- Active Probiotics has Pineapple extract (Bromelain), Spearmint essential oil and Aloe. I use this moisturizing cleanser in the evening to remove all of my makeup, even my eye makeup. (It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyelids at all. It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.
LaFlore® Probiotic Serum Concentrate – Calms, smooths fine lines and wrinkles and boosts the skin’s natural defense system. I apply this serum immediately after cleansing in the evening. This powerhouse serum includes Perilla Seed oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Vitamins A, D, K, E, and Beta Carotene, as well as Hemp Seed oil, Jojoba, Avocado and Squalene. This serum can also be used as a spot treatment for acne and rosacea. (Over a dozen probiotics in the LaFlore Live-Active Probiotic Serum!) It gives my skin that boost of nutrients that it needs.
LaFlore® Probiotic Daily Defense Moisturizer – An aloe-based moisturizer packed with active probiotics, botanical humectants, super-antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and vitamin D3. This moisturizer primes skin for a flawless makeup application while protecting the skin’s barrier function from the degenerative effects of environmental exposure. I use this as both my night and day cream.
For my daily routine, I actually don't even wash my face because the products from the night before are still on my skin, doing their job. Sometimes, I just rinse it with water, and then add the serum and moisturizer before applying my makeup. My skin never breaks out, is never oily, and looks radiant and young!

ANTI -AGING PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS: DON’T GET CREAMED BY FALSE HOPE IN A JAR.
SEPARATING THE SKINCARE HEROES FROM THE ZEROES
Here's what is certain: There are no firming or tightening products whose results can duplicate what you derive from in-office procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox, lasers, or cosmetic surgery. Board - Certified Denver plastic surgeon Manish Shah says, “There are anti- aging products or ingredients that do perform significantly better than others and can make a profound difference in the skin’s appearance while others are simply “false hope in a jar.”
Why don’t most products work the way they claim? Almost without exception, when you buy a product claiming to tighten skin, its effects, if any, are due to ingredients such as film-forming agents. Just like the name states, film-forming agents form a film on the skin, and that can make the skin "feel" tighter. The effect is temporary and you won't see a noticeable lifting of sagging skin, but the sensation is often enough to convince women that the product is working. Dr. Shah stresses that “Skin "feeling" tighter is not the same as making a real change for the better in the tone or laxity of your skin. Using what really works will get you closer to the results you want.”
Dr. Shah says, “Sunscreen SPF 30 or above is the best antiaging cream you can use. It prevents skin cancer as well as UVA rays that cause loss of collagen and wrinkles in the skin. Reapply every 2 hours, use a powder sun block and carry in your pocketbook for quick and easy sunscreen touchups. My favorite powder sunblock is Colorescience, and my favorite base sunscreens have titanium or zinc oxide in them as active ingredients.”
Retinoids work great to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help boost collagen production,” says Dr. Shah.” He adds, “Over the counter retinols are good, Neutrogena makes a good one or prescriptions such as Retin- A.”
Glycolic acid also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and helps fade pigmentary damage from the sun. “I often have patients alternate nights with retinoid and glycolic,” says Dr. Shah.
Vitamin C is a great antioxidant which reduces free radical damage and is great for anti-aging and helps brighten the skin. Dr. Shah often recommends it in the morning, underneath sunblock, or at night if patients are too sensitive to tolerate retinoids and glycolic acid.
Ceramides are a type of lipid found in the membrane of cells. Dr. Shah states that “They help hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and retains moisture. Ceramide levels decrease as we age which leads to loss of hydration, less skin turnover, and dryer, more damaged skin. Replenishing the skin's ceramide levels will help restore moisture and fortify the skin's natural barrier, helping skin look and feel younger.” So use a ceramide containing moisturizer for your whole body daily.
Hydroquinone works to even out sun spots, blotches, and mottled skin. A little hydroquinone goes a long way. "It's the most effective ingredient for bleaching skin," says Dr. Shah. Hydroquinone fades hyperpigmentation by blocking the enzyme that triggers melanin production in the skin.
Green Tea Extract is loaded with nutrients called polyphenols, which have been shown to fight free radicals. It is an amazing antioxidant. Studies have found that ingredients in green tea can reduce sun damage and may protect against skin cancer when applied topically. Dr. Shah offers that, “Using green tea extract under sunscreen can provide an extra dose of protection. Polyphenols in creams and lotions may help slow signs of aging, reduce sagging skin and decrease wrinkles.”
The majority of anti-aging creams are still based on moisturizers such as mineral oil. Wrinkles look worse when they are dry, so any kind of moisturizer helps, but it’s only temporary and doesn't address the root cause of the wrinkles such as collagen loss, free radical damage, sun damage, and environmental factors. Don't be fooled by the anti-aging labels. Unless there is an actual "active ingredient" such as retinol, the benefit is just moisture but nothing else.
B Vitamins Many forms of vitamin B (like B12) can only be absorbed in the small intestine, so no matter how much is loaded into your moisturizer or serum, it's not going to make a difference. "Vitamins like niacin can have an effect on the skin's texture and color, but your skin can't absorb them," Dr. Shah explains. If you really want to tap into the power of vitamin B to improve your skin's glow and appearance, stick to eating leafy greens like spinach, asparagus, beans, and peas.
Caffeine. Much like a Starbucks Latte for your brain, caffeine in skin creams can give a boost to your skin, too. Until it wears off. "Caffeine can temporarily reduce puffiness, especially around your eyes," explains Dr. Shah. "But don't expect permanent results."
Botanical extracts are ingredients extracted from plants (flowers, roots, stems, trees, etc.) for use in skin care for everything from healing blemishes to reducing fine wrinkles. They have been used for centuries and have anecdotal purposes in many cultures. The issue: Botanical extracts need to remain on your skin in order to work. Dr. Shah explains that “In cleansers, there is simply not enough contact time on your skin for any true anti-aging benefit to take place. Another issue is that most botanical extracts are water soluble, which means that the moment you wet your skin and begin to wash your face, they’re watered down and rendered useless.”
Collagen and elastin in anti-wrinkle products. Collagen and elastin in skin-care products can serve as good water-binding agents, but they cannot fuse with your skin's natural supply of these supportive elements. In most cases, the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate into the skin. But even when it is made small enough to be absorbed it cannot bind with the collagen existing in the skin, and there isn't any research indicating otherwise.

This has been such a beautiful and sunny Autumn here in the Pacific Northwest. I absolutely love taking my sweet little girl, Reylin (who is almost nine months old) out on walks where she gets to witness first hand the beauty of all of the breathtaking colors of fall.
We had a very warm summer, and my husband and I took Reylin on many hikes. We always carry her around in a baby carrier, because needless to say, you cannot maneuver a stroller out there in the woods, and a wiggly baby would make for very tired parental arms!
We have tried many types of baby carriers and slings, but most of them are not very good at keeping baby cool on warm days. Let's face it, both parents and baby can get kind of sweaty on long walks and hikes! Thankfully we came across the Ergobaby Mesh Baby Carrier.
We have found that there is no better baby carrier than the Ergobaby Mesh Baby Carrier for our adventures out in nature! The mesh fabric is completely breathable, keeping me (or my hubby) and our baby cool and comfortable even on the hottest, most humid days! It’s also lightweight, yet durable. Neither of us have experienced any shoulder or back strain, even as Reylin gets heavier. And the fact that this carrier grows with our baby means we can use it until she is at least four years old!
This carrier is also very stylish, and I love how my husband or I can each wear it and feel good in it. I also appreciate the detachable pouch that is has, in which we can keep baby essentials as well as our car keys and wallets safe and secure. Baby Reylin can easily face forward or backward, but I usually keep her facing me, because it makes it convenient for breastfeeding her right on the trail!
Mostly, we love how much our baby girl feels while she is in it! Our little one is always so happy and content when she is in her perfect element; snuggled up with her Mommy or Daddy, out in the woods or at the park, in her ErgoBaby Mesh Baby Carrier!

Road trips can be one of the best ways to take a vacation together as a family. But diving with your children elbowing each other and screaming in the backseat is hardly what dreams are made of. To make your first family road trip a success, a few easy steps to prepare for drive can go a long way.
Shorter Trial Trip
Before you even decide where you’re going, get a sense of what a realistic distance is for your family. You will want to go on shorter trips before a cross-country adventure. Think of it as research. Collect the data before locking down your itinerary so you can factor in time-sensitive issues like how long you can drive without needing to stop for bathroom breaks. This way, you can tailor your trip to fit your family’s needs and expectations.
Prepare Your Car
It is recommended to have your vehicle inspected before you hit the road. Needless to say, safety always comes first. The last thing you need when traveling with children is to break down on the side of the road.
Drafting an inventory of what you take with you is a great way to stay on top of things, especially in case of an emergency. Be sure to include jumper cables, a flashlight and a toolbox in your car. You will also want to have a first aid kit, flares, toilet paper, wipes, soap, chargers for the electronics, blankets in case of a temperature drop, and any weather-specific accessories like umbrellas or bug repellent.
Limit the Electronics
While apps are useful and save on space, it is a good idea to print out your itinerary so you can still navigate should your technology fail. Lots of areas do not have reception, especially places that are popular for family road trips like national parks or mountainous regions. Physical maps are always good to keep in the car too.
We may live in the age of screens, but consider taking this chance to show your kids the highlights of living off-the-grid. Pack games like cards and books to keep them occupied. If you choose to let them have their screen time, pick movies or TV shows appropriate for all ages that will not have extreme sounds that may spook the driver. Also make earbuds and noise-canceling headphones available for those who wish to sleep.
Screens aside, looking out the window can be entertaining and calming, especially if your kid is feeling nauseous. Car sickness in toddlers is especially challenging because they may not give you very much warning before it is too late. You should plan for motion sickness by stashing trash bags in your car.
Of course, prevention is always preferable. Acupressure bracelets can help those prone to motion sickness. Ginger is also said to be more effective than over-the-counter medication like Dramamine. Taking regular stops and fresh air also ease the urge, so make sure every one of your kids gets out of the car when you take stops.
Snacks and Water
Load up on water and on-the-road foods that do not call for refrigeration. You know your children, so pack what they like to eat to keep their blood sugar stable. Trail mix, fruit, crackers, and baked goods are always great in a pinch. Depending on the gas stations where you travel, food can get pricey and uninspiring, so think of stopping at a grocery store on your way out of town.
Tell someone back home where you are taking your family. Give them all the details and even your itinerary, if you should feel comfortable sharing it. Make sure to include when you will be coming back, so they don’t worry about you.
Consider asking this person or a friendly neighbor to check on your home while you are away. It is not fun to come home to a burglary that could have been avoided. Some people like to leave a light on inside to keep thieves away. If you are going away for a while, you may want to set up an alarm system so all you precious belongings will remain safe and sound while you head out on an adventure.
Get your Kids Involved
Like all of us, kids like to feel useful and productive. Share the itinerary with them in advance so they can get excited about the trip. Turn it into a game: encourage them to put together a list of what they would like to do or see in the places you are planning to go (it could be as simple as “spot a bird” and as site-specific as catching a glimpse of a unique roadside attraction). Letting your child in on the details of the trip can help curb the dreaded question of: “Are we there yet?”
As is always the case with parenting, planning is your best friend. Take care of everything in advance so you can fully enjoy the family fun as you explore the world together.
Halloween is right around the corner! Below you will find some of my favorite products for that spooky night from Streekers, Smashbox Cosmetics, Mamonde and Sun Bum that can take care of everything from nailing the perfect costume to taking it all off at the end of the night.
Add the most-have essentials for your costume with temporary hair color from Streekers. Available in 8 colorageous shades. Streekers lets you create the absolute look without the commitment of permanent color.
Make a statement with Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Liquid Metal Lipstick
Our studio pros infused the Be Legendary Liquid Metal with four new types of pearls for a never before-seen, fierce foil finish that gives lips killer color in a single coat!
Take it all off with Mamonde Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser
A cleansing oil and foamy cleanser in one super gentle, rose-infused formula.
Give your hair a break with Sun Bum Revitalizing Deep Conditioning Masque
This Deep Conditioning Masque was specifically formulated to restore essential hydration and enhance overall softness and smoothness to dry, damaged or over-processed hair. This most decadent treatment is infused with Amla and Bamboo Extract that helps strengthen our hair, making it resilient and more manageable.
Ever notice how the first day your hair is colored it’s vibrant, shiny and has lots of depth? But just like your favorite jeans, cleansing washes color out. No need to have that happen to your hair as the Rahua Color Full™ Hair Care System is formulated with a proprietary plant derived color complex made with Amazonian oils and minerals that protects and preserves all shades of color-treated hair.
Simply said, after hair is colored it has a negative charge due to the chemical process of opening the cuticle to deposit color pigment, leaving hair rough and vulnerable to fading. With Rahua’s new Color Full™ color protection complex, the negative charge leftover from color processing becomes highly attracted to the positive charge of the super fine Amazonian Rahua Oil omega 9 molecules. This attraction helps push color pigmentation molecules deeper into the hair shaft for more color-staying power.
The other factor is that over time color treated hair becomes porous. Amazonian Clay contains natural color pigments that restore hair’s porosity, further locking in the hair color. (Amazonian Lilac Clay reduces brassiness.) Amazonian Morete (Buriti) encapsulates each strand with a color-fading barrier by restoring color pigments deep in the hair shaft for color preservation.
All shades of color treated hair benefit from our singularly glorious formula made with Symbiotic® (rainforest grown) oils and natural, plant derived and organic ingredients. Our products are free of parabens, sulfates and gluten and are vegan.
I was given the chance to review the Rahua Color Full Hair Care System. (Shown below.)
The Rahua Color Full Hair Care System consists of the following products:
Rahua Color Full Shampoo~ Unlike anything else on the market, this singular color-preserving shampoo is formulated from pure, plant-based ingredients. This exclusive color protection complex—appropriate for all shades of color-treated and highlighted hair—enhances and extends color while Rahua and morete oils from the Amazon rainforest nourish and strengthen each strand. Scented with the exotic fragrance of gardenia flowers, this formula keeps color at its peak and hair and scalp healthy and hydrated.
Rahua Color Full Conditioner~ The perfect complement to the Color Full™ Shampoo, our Color Full™ Conditioner is formulated from pure, plant-based ingredients. Infused with the lush scent of gardenia, this rich and creamy conditioner—suitable for all shades of color-treated or highlighted hair—uses an exclusive color protection complex to prevent fading and protect your color investment. Amazonian lilac clay reduces brassiness and Rahua, morete and flaxseed oils nourish and strengthen each strand, leaving hair soft, lustrous, and manageable.
Rahua Color Full Hair Mask~ This deep-penetrating hair mask uses pure, plant-based ingredients to fortify all shades of color-treated and highlighted hair and extend its vibrancy. Professional-strength and designed to work like an in-salon treatment, this mask uses our exclusive color protection complex to enhance and protect color while Rahua and morete oils from the Amazon rainforest nourish and strengthen each strand. Scented with the intoxicating fragrances of gardenia flowers, this treatment leaves color-treated hair soft, strong, radiant, and shiny.
I love the The Rahua Color Full Hair Care System! The products smell heavenly, like gardenia flowers. My color-treated hair is very dry, and the Rahua Color Full Hair Care System has brought my hair back to life, leaving it perfectly hydrated, looking shiny, healthy and beautiful. My hair color stays looking as vibrant as the first day I had it done at the salon!
