PUR ATTITUDE™ LAUNCHES PURENERGIZER™ COMPLETE ANTI-AGING KIT
With Handheld Nano Solutions Skin Infuser that Uses Ultrasonic Nanotechnology to Moisturize Skin
And 3 Targeted Nano Solutions: MAX Defense Lift & Firm, Moisture Magnet Anti-Aging, and MAX Brightening
This season, PUR attitude™ announced the release of its PURenergizer™ Complete Anti-Aging Kit. The kit features the Nano Solutions Skin Infuser a handheld device that harnesses ultrasonic nanotechnology to transform targeted serums into a potent “nano-vapor” that can penetrate more deeply into the skin. This process creates fresh liposomes on the skin at the time of application, which enables improved delivery of key ingredients. The process works synergistically with the skin’s natural lipid barrier; the experience is therefore personalized for every user’s unique skin type.
“The PUR attitude brand is always on the cutting edge of advanced technology using safe ingredients,” said Jerry Rayman, President of PUR attitude. “Because we are an independent high-science beauty brand, we are nimble enough to disrupt the marketplace with innovation, while safely delivering results in a nontoxic way. The new PURenergizer™ product with the handheld Nano Solutions Skin Infuser is beyond the cutting edge of skin care technology. We’ve ventured into new performance territory.”
The PURenergizer™ Complete Anti-Aging Kit uses a waterless natural polymer system found in almost every cell of the human body. By linking these natural polymers with phospholipids, ceramides, and sphingolipids, the ultrasonic technology creates liposomes of 7.0 – 10.0 microns, which allows for the improved absorption of key ingredients through the skin’s defense wall. This process plumps the skin and softens the look of wrinkles with technology that is safe and natural.
“While the major component of most moisturizers is water, these molecules attract each other, associating themselves through hydrogen bonding, creating a disorderly, chaotic cluster that can impede absorption and actually dry the skin,” said beauty industry chemist David Pollock, PUR attitude’s formulator, of the science behind the innovation. “Liposomes were once thought to solve this problem, providing transdermal delivery of actives for pharmaceutical and cosmetic brands. However, traditional formulations containing emulsifiers, or binding agents, were found to damage the liposomes, making them unstable over time.”
The PURenergizer™ Complete Anti-Aging Kit transforms vital nutrition for the skin using a nano-solution vapor that allows key ingredients to penetrate more deeply. The kit includes one bottle each of the new serums: MAX Defense Lift & Firm Nano Solution, Moisture Magnet Anti-Aging Nano Solution, and MAX Brightening Nano Solution. These serums are intended to be used together to visibly improve skin firmness, elasticity, radiance and overall skin tone. The rechargeable Nano Solutions Skin Infuser is designed for daily use, and the entire process takes just minutes to complete.
MAX Defense Lift & Firm Nano Solution is an age-defying complex that delivers a powerful combination of antioxidants for broad-spectrum defense against oxidative damage. It also provides nutrients to enhance natural skin recovery and minimize the signs of aging. MAX Defense is available in 1 fl. oz.at a retail price of $45. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily.) Key performance features include:
- Watermelon extract protects skin deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) against free radicals.
- While most products protect against just one form of free radical damage, this serum fights both reactive nitrogen species (RNS) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) free radical damage.
- Probiotics increase skin energy.
Moisture Magnet Anti-Aging Nano Solution is formulated to invigorate the skin’s natural barriers to help it retain moisture, increase hydration, and deliver necessary electrolytes. Moisture Magnet is available in 1 fl. oz. at a retail price of $45. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily.) Key performance features include:
- Natural polymer acts as a moisture magnet, binding hydration to the skin.
- Sea Kelp replenishes the skin’s electrolyte balance.
- Lipids replenish the skin’s natural barrier.
- Treats dry skin by nearly doubling hydration and delivering essential electrolytes.
- Leaves skin feeling cool, refreshed and more radiant.
MAX Brightening Nano Solution was created to improve the skin’s overall firmness and lighten dark aging spots. The solution contains an active form of vitamin C that improves collagen synthesis. Max Brightener is available in 1 fl. oz. at a retail price of $45. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily.) Key performance features include:
- Significantly lightens age spots.
- Combats hyperpigmentation.
- Evens out skin tone and texture.
- Improves skin elasticity.
When comparing the performance of these serums used on their own to application of the same serum with the Nano Solutions Skin Infuser, liposomal nano-vapor demonstrated that it was 150 percent more effective in skin moisturization, 150 percent more effective in smoothing skin texture, and 30 percent more effective in overall skin care results.
Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s standards for “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.
The PURenergizer™ Complete Anti-Aging Kit is available at a retail price of $80. The kit includes one PURenergizer™ Nano Solution Skin Infuser and one bottle each of MAX Defense Lift & Firm Nano Solution, Moisture Magnet Anti-Aging Nano Solution, and MAX Brightening Nano Solution. Serums can be replenished individually.
I have been using my PURenergizer Complete Anti-Aging Kit for about six weeks now. I use it in the morning after cleansing my skin, and then in the evening as well. It is very simple to use. I mix together the MAX Defense Lift & Firm and Moisture Magnet Anti-Aging solutions and apply them to my entire face, neck and upper chest area. It is such a soothing experience. I hold the device about one inch from my skin and move it slowly across the areas that I want to treat. After I am finished, I allow the product to sink into my skin, and air dry before I proceed with my regular moisturizer or night cream.
I had never thought about the fact that the way I apply skin care could make a difference. It makes sense that vaporizing a skin care product can help it absorb into my skin more efficiently. My results are stunning! My skin was usually very dry, but seems to be much more hydrated and firmer on my jaw line and neck.

Many people do not realize the significance of gut health and how it relates to the well being of the entire body. Gut Health is another term for the healthy balance of good bacteria in our digestive system. (Otherwise know as microbiome) I have been learning so much about the importance of gut health and how it can prevent disease.
The gut microbiome plays a very important role in your health by helping control digestion and benefiting your immune system and many other aspects of health. An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may result in many health issues as well as serious diseases.
When your gut health is compromised, the bad bacteria in your gut can grow and result in infections such as helicobacter pylori. This nasty bacteria lives exclusively in the human stomach and is the only known bacteria able to survive and grow in such an acid environment.
Helicobacter pylori induces a range of symptoms such as fatigue and constant stomach pain and discomfort. It also causes stomach ulcers and can also lead to deadly diseases such as stomach cancer. In fact, it is responsible for 60-90% of gastric cancers. Given these estimates, it is possible that Helicobacter pylori claims more lives each year than car accidents. That is extremely scary!
Migraines, Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular problems and certain immune diseases have also been linked to Helicobacter pylori infection.
This infection responds poorly to antibiotics, but thankfully, there are supplements available for helicobacter pylori treatment. Infections such as this one can be prevented by taking precautions, such as the proper nutritional supplements.
There are natural supplements that you can take daily to help prevent these types of dangerous infections. One of these recommended supplements is a natural product which has been used since ancient times as an antiseptic and remedy for a range of stomach ailments: mastic gum (pistacia lentiscus).
Several clinical studies have shown that mastic gum inhibits or eliminates H.pylori as well as other bacteria and fungal infections. Mastic gum is a safe, effective and natural nutritional supplement, free from side-effects.
There is so much to learn about gut health and how it ties into the way our entire body functions! It is all very interesting to me, and I plan to keep researching ways to keep myself and my family as healthy as possible!
Do you find yourself waking up in the morning and feeling you need to go back to sleep for a few more hours? Getting a good night’s sleep is important for your health and wellbeing, but so many of us don’t get what we need. The recommended amount is between 7 and 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. If you regularly manage only 4 or 5, have you thought it might be your diet that’s keeping you awake at night? There are a number of different ways you can improve your sleep patterns, and changing your diet is one of them.
The Best Foods to Eat Before You go to Sleep
- Almonds – contain melatonin, a sleep-regulating hormone
- Turkey – contains the amino acid tryptophan which increases the production of melatonin
- Chamomile tea – contains apigenin which is an antioxidant that binds to receptors that promote sleep and reduce insomnia
- Tart cherry juice – contains high amounts of melatonin
- White rice – it has a high glycemic index that may help improve sleep quality
- Kiwi fruit – contain serotonin, a chemical that regulates your sleep cycle
- Fatty fish – contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D which increase the production of serotonin
- Walnuts – a great source of melatonin
- Passionflower tea – its calming properties may promote sleepiness
A number of other foods are thought to have sleep-promoting properties, but little research has been done as to their effectiveness. These include milk, cottage cheese, bananas and oatmeal.
Other Ways to Improve Your Sleep Patterns
Enjoying a healthy sleep pattern can have an enormous effect on your health. There are a number of things you can do to improve your sleep habits. For example, sticking to the same sleep schedule helps you to regulate your body clock. A relaxing bedtime ritual will also be very beneficial. If you’re in the habit of taking naps during the day, you might find it easier to fall asleep at bedtime if you cut these out. Sleeping on a comfortable mattress will also make a big difference. You want a mattress that is supportive. Serta Posturepedic is a very popular brand at the moment. The environment that you sleep in should be cool, preferably between 60 and 67 degrees, as well as being free from any noise and light. If there is little you can do to cut these levels, possibly because your partner is a snorer, try ear plugs, eye shades, and blackout curtains. It has also been shown that regular exercise, preferably vigorous, can have a profound effect on your sleep patterns.
There are a number of myths associated with getting a good night’s sleep. For example, many people consider it beneficial to fall asleep with the TV playing in the background. This can, in fact, be very detrimental as can blue light from electronic devices such as mobile phones.
Without a good night’s sleep, we really don’t function very well. There are people who can perform normally on just four or five hours sleep, but the majority of us need much more. Sleep problems affects millions of people on a regular basis but changing your diet can make a big difference.

I received my last Degustabox of the summer! It is bittersweet because I love summer, but Fall has its perks, too. I just hate everything back-to-school related! (I wish summer break was never ending!)
This month's box has been a lot of fun! With "Campout" as the theme, there are plenty of tasty snack foods that are perfect for taking with you on your next camping trip! This box was my favorite one so far!
Below, you will see what I found in my August 2018 Degustabox:
Country Archer Sweet Pork BBQ/ Uncured Bacon
Truth be told, I never got to taste this snack. I thought it looked good, and so I put it aside, thinking my husband or son would enjoy it, but it did vanish, and I am not certain who ate it. It is one of those little mysteries that happen around my house from time to time.
Amazon Pepper Sweet Chili Sauce
Look at this cut little bottle of chile sauce! It contains a blend of cayenne pepper and tropical spices. I haven't used it yet, but I am sure I will love it, because I love myself a good, sweet chile sauce. I will probably use it for dipping egg rolls or perhaps, shrimp? Yum!
Popcorn, Indiana Original Movie Theater Popcorn
This popcorn is made with the finest popcorn, real butter, and salt. My daughter works in a movie theater, so I get all of the free movie theater popcorn that I want, so to tell you the truth, this little popcorn sample did not thrill me that much.
The Good Crisp Company Chips
These snacking crisps were pretty good. I probably would have enjoyed the flavored ones a bit more, but these were nice and crispy. They tasted a little bit like Pringles, but a healthier version.
Ready Water All-Natural Protein Water
Ready Water delivers 15 grams of High Quality 100% Whey Protein Isolate, absolutely No Sugar and 5g of Electrolytes without any Artificial Ingredients. I immediately put this beverage into the freezer so that I could enjoy it slushy (because the weather was hot that day.) Then, I forgot about it until it was solidly frozen. Dang it. So I took it out of the freezer to thaw it out, and then forgot about it again. It thawed to the point of being a little tepid. No problem, I drank it anyway. It was pretty good.
Wise BRAVOS® Stadium Nacho flavor Tortilla Chips
BRAVOS are crispy and light, with bold taste to satisfy your real cheese cravings. Think creamy cheese taste with a hint of pickled
jalapenos piled on crispy, whole grain tortillas. I don't really enjoy tortilla chips, so I didn't try these out. I am not sure where they went, to be honest. I think someone ate them because now that I think about it, they did disappear!
Chocolate Peanut Butter PR Bar
These all-natural protein bars are certified gluten-free and packed with the perfect blend of carbs and vitamins to boost energy and endurance when you need it most. Each bar contains the PR Bar tri-blend protein mixture, including three different proteins for maximum absorption and optimal recovery.
I loved this delicious bar, and ate it rather quickly. I would buy these if I found them in a store!
Colombina Mixed Berry flavored Breakfast Biscuits
I love these delicious breakfast biscuits. What a perfect idea for a quick and easy breakfast to start out your day, especially if you don't have time to eat. They are flavorful, and give me a nutritious boost of energy for on-the-go. I just now, in fact, ate a few of them, because writing this post reminded me that I had some left, and I remembered that I loved them, so I guess that means that they are also the perfect night time snack! (Much healthier than a late night bowl of ice cream!)
HIGH BREW COFFEE Double Espresso
High Brew Coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans that are cold brewed over time, not heat. The cold brew process creates two times the natural caffeine and lower acidity than traditionally brewed coffee, with way less sugar.
I have never been a coffee drinker, until I discovered McDonald's Caramel Frappes. I am addicted to those, but this? Not so much. I just don't really like cold coffee beverages. My husband drank it, and said he liked it, so that is good.
Sahale Maple Pecans Glazed snack mix
This delightful snack mix was my favorite treat in this month's Degustabox! Warm and comforting - pecans, cherries, and apple lightly glazed with maple then finished with a touch of cinnamon. Each 150-calorie serving has 2g protein and 1g fiber from heart-healthy nuts and fruit. Every bite was so delicious and satisfying! I will be looking for these in stores!
Post Shredded Wheat Frosted Chocolate Strawberry Shredded Wheat
The wholesomeness of shredded wheat biscuits combined with delicious strawberry flavored frosting and a burst of
chocolate goodness in the middle. These would be amazing if I was a person who enjoyed shredded wheat, but I don't, so even though this cereal has chocolate centers, I can't get into it.
Prince of Peace Ginger Chews in Lemon flavor
I love these yummy ginger chews! I did not know how much I loved them until I realized I had almost eaten them all in a day and a half. Now I am craving them again! I love how chewy, zesty and lemony they are. The only complaint I have is opening the packets. I needed scissors to open each one! And then they are hard to pry out of the wrapper. That may have been because it was very warm in my house, but still, they are very difficult to open.

*Product received. All opinions are my own.
Did you know that acid reflux can occur when your gut health is out of balance? This is something that I have only recently learned. My husband has suffered from acid reflux for most of his adult life. I always assumed it was just from overeating, and/or eating too much, which is definitely a part of the problem.
Acid reflux is directly linked to your gastrointestinal tract. It occurs when the acid from your stomach comes back up your esophagus. This can cause great discomfort, and it can damage your esophagus if it happens often enough.
To get relief from his acid refux, my husband always gobbles down antacids and heartburn medications. He has tried every brand and formula on the market. The one thing we had never thought of for acid reflux relief is probiotics.
I take a daily gut health supplement for my own health because I seem to get recurrent urinary tract infections and digestion problems, and they have really helped to combat my problems, but my husband had never tried any form of probiotics until his doctor suggested it.
My husband's doctor suggested that my husband needed to change his diet by eliminating soda, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, certain juices & sauces, and spicy foods, and start taking probiotic supplements.
The doctor explained that that heartburn (or acid reflux) may be a symptom of an unbalanced gut bacteria. He also suggested that over-the-counter acid reflux medications and antacids could actually cause an imbalance of gut microflora (the good bacteria that our bodies need.)
Antacids and heartburn medications may be wiping out the good bacteria in your body in their effort to make up for the absence of acid in the stomach. It all started to make sense to my husband. We immediately ordered a few bottles of the highly recommended anti-acid reflux formula probiotics that the doctor suggested.
After about one week of taking these probiotics and changing his diet, my husband has definitely noticed a difference. He has not needed any antacids or heartburn medications at all. I am thankful that we have an educated doctor who took the time to explain the link between gut health and heartburn!

There are countless skin care products that promise to firm your skin, smooth out wrinkles, brighten your complexion and make you look younger. But who can you believe? What products really provide these kinds of results?
Being a beauty blogger, I have had the opportunity to review hundreds of beauty products as well as beauty supplements over the past ten years, and I have definitely learned a thing or two about what truly works and what is all hype.
I do know this: no topical skin care serum, lotion or cream can change your skin by themselves. These products are helpful, yes they are, but truly healthy and ageless skin starts from with the proper nutritional supplements. Beauty and youth is also more than just our skin! The proper nutritional supplements can rejuvenate your entire being!
I was given the chance to review what I consider some of the most effective anti-aging supplements on the market from SuperSmart.com.
Below are the supplements that I have chosen, and information to let you know what they are and why I believe they have anti-aging properties.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide 98% ~ I have been taking two of these supplements every day for about three weeks. I have noticed that I have not been hungry for sugar, and my weight has gone down by four pounds.
- May improve the metabolic response to ageing.
- Contributes to the benefits of calorie restriction.
- May reverse vascular ageing.
Stem Cells Activator~ Since taking these supplements daily for almost a month, I have noticed that I have increased endurance while exercising. I have not felt any aches and/or pains that I normally feel when I am finished running on my treadmill.
• May increase average lifespan and quality of life, as a direct result of enhanced capacity for cell replication ;
• May decrease ithe decline in immune function that increases susceptibility to infection, chronic inflammatory attacks and degenerative diseases;
• May improve the condition and pain associated with degenerative complaints.
Astragaloside IV 98%~ What I have noticed the most after taking these supplements (two capsules each day) is that my immune system is definitely stronger. I was exposed to a cold that my family has been passing around, and I have not caught the bug at all, when normally I would have by now.
- Antioxidant, immune-stimulant and anti-inflammatory properties.
- May protect the skin from UV-related damage.
- Recognised for its potential to slow down telomere-shortening. (Shortening of telomers is associated with cellular ageing and the development of age-related diseases.)
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG~ I normally get frequent UTIs, and in the month that I have been taking these supplements, I have not had one at all. I also feel that my digestive system is running more smoothly, and I have not suffered any nausea that I normally feel every single day.
- One of the most widely-studied probiotic strains;
- Helps maintain healthy intestinal and vaginal flora;
- Provides 10 billion beneficial micro-organisms a day.
In addition to the health benefits that I have noted above, I have also noticed that my skin is much softer, less dry and that I have less fine lines! I am excited to see the long term effects that taking these supplements will have on my body. I am less fatigued, I sleep more peacefully at night, I have increased energy, and my mood has been stable. I plan to order additional supplements from SuperSmart in the near future, because they have numerous health benefits that I would love to take advantage of.
What if I can slow down my aging process? I don't plan to live to be one hundred, but I would love to look as young as possible, and feel as young as possible for many more years.
Take a look at all of the amazing health and nutritional supplements from SuperSmart. Which ones would you be interested in trying out?

Having little ones is an adventure! You never know what each day is going to bring. Along with all of the good stuff, there are going to be days of bumps, bruises, aches and pains, fevers and sickness. Such is life as a parent!
When a child is sick or gets injured, it is never easy to calm them down! Simple ice packs and heating pads can be intimidating to children. With
Children love stuffed animals and these products help parents try to comfort their children by giving them an animal that also acts as an ice pack or heating pad.
There are a wide range of animals and various colors of bears to choose from, ensuring that every child has a product they are happy with and comforted by.
The animals can be cooled in the freezer and heated in the microwave, allowing parents to use the animal for any form of injury or illness. Unlike usual therapeutic treatments that become smelly and old, the animals are made of natural cotton, and contain a heating/cooling element composed of a specially treated and processed corn product that eliminates molds, fungi and odors. The animals are also washable, allowing parents to use them as often as needed.
I have several of these animals. They are adorable! My eleven year-old son, Braxton is always getting bumps and bruises, so these animals are perfect to have on hand. Most recently, Braxton was sunburned at the beach, and we placed his frozen monkey pal, JoJo on his back while he slept, and it was the perfect solution to cool his sunburn. He adores his monkey!
My sweet little seven month-old granddaughter is teething. She loves to chew on her little Thermal-Aid elephant, Ellie after I have had it in the freezer. Baby Reylin enjoys cuddling with her cooled down Thermal-Aid animals on these hot summer days!
I can imagine that these animals will also be perfect during the cold winter months, too. Maybe we can put one in the microwave and warm it up to place in her car seat with her before traveling.
Thermal Aid animals are perfect for soothing:
Sprains,Strains, Muscle Soreness: Start with cold to reduce inflammation and swelling, After 48 hours, alternate hot and cold.
Headaches/Migraines: Alternate hot/cold Thermal-Aid animals on child's forehead.
Growing Pains & Leg Cramps: Lay a warm Thermal-Aid animal on the child's legs at bedtime.
Babies with Colic: A warm, not hot Thermal-Aid animal placed alongside baby's back or tummy can help soothe baby for a restful night's sleep.
Earaches: Place a warm Thermal-Aid animal on the child's ears, neck, or head.
Bug Bites/Bee Stings: A cold Thermal-Aid animal will decrease swelling and inflammation.
Flu Symptoms: Reduce fevers with cold Thermal-Aid animals, or offer comfort with warm.
