I love learning about breakthrough skin care miracles that really work! Since I am getting older, I find myself getting obsessed with anti-aging products. I was excited to learn about Bratoxinsta Wrinkle Serum and to get the chance to try it out.
When it comes to banishing wrinkles and crow’s feet, an immediate result is where it’s at. Gone are the days of waiting 8 to 12 weeks for improvement. People want noticeable wrinkle fading within minutes. They want to feel it working and look in the mirror as the change is happening. Brazilian Skin’s line of creams and serums delivers exactly that. It combines science and ingredients from the Amazon rainforest to deliver dermatologist-approved topical age reversal with effects similar to Botulinum Toxin, aka…Botox.® Wrinkles are gone within minutes without needles. Brazilian Skin offers a type Botox result without the appointments, expense and needles. Dr. Vishal Kapoor, a Beverly Hills, CA Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Medical Advisor to Brazilian Skin explains how this skincare line really delivers results quickly.
Bratoxinsta® The 60 Second Smoother of Lines and Wrinkles
Within 60 seconds of application, the state-of-the-art minerals and antioxidants found in this serum gets to work fast to plump up skin, tighten and smooth out wrinkles. With clinically dosed concentrations of purified and refined clay, Peptides, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract, Perilla Frutescens (Chinese Extract), Acai Palm Tree Extract, Chinese Basil Plant’s Rosmarinic Acid, known for its ability to plump up tired skin; Bratoxinsta offers the immediate gratification that the countless other creams and serums are missing.
“Women are always telling me that they spend money on creams and serums that do nothing. They play the waiting game and get frustrated as they throw away another cream or serum. With Bratoxinsta, there’s no waiting. You’re getting the highest amounts of these key ingredients possible and when working in concert with one another results are instantaneous,” explains Dr. Kapoor.
The powerful combination of stem-cell, antioxidants from Açai and peptides help to improve long-term appearance of wrinkles and will address sun damage and other issues with skin texture and tone. Some of Bratoxinsta's ingredients will help to tighten the skin on the surface, helping to smooth fine expression lines and blur the appearance of wrinkles. Once applied, the powerful active ingredients will start working on getting your skin smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking with every use.
Simply dispense a small amount on your fingertip and gently feather it over any wrinkles and expressions lines. Apply to a clean face, allow 60 seconds for effects to begin before applying makeup. “A little goes a very long way with Bratoxinsta. One or two drops on the fingertip will do it. You can actually watch it working in the mirror. This is what sets it aside from other creams touting themselves as ‘Botox in a Bottle,’” says Dr. Kapoor.
Main Ingredients… A Deeper Look
Magnesium Aluminum is a naturally occurring mineral created purified and refined clay, that tightens and smooths the appearance of under-eye puffiness, sagging, and fine lines.
Peptide Complex works to smooth away the look of wrinkles and expression marks.
Stem Cell Complex (Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract, Perilla Frutescens (Chinese Extract). Native to the Amazon Rainforest, the Acai Palm Tree is renowned its ability to thrive in harsh conditions. The Chinese Basil Plant is rich in Rosmarinic Acid, which is known for its ability to plump up tired skin. These 3 antioxidants help to defend against oxidative stress by effectively disarming radicals.
“Stem cells slow down aging by defending skin against stress and serving as an internal repair system. Stem cells divide without limit allowing them to replenish other cells or migrate to damaged areas to repair tissue,” explains Dr. Kapoor.
Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract Also known as Irish Sea Moss, Chondrus Crispus contains a hydrating, nutrient-rich blend of vitamins and trace minerals such as sulfur, iodine, magnesium, and selenium.
The Bratoxinsta formula also contains stem cells from the Acai Palm Tree, Basil Plant, and White Oak Plant. In addition, 6 bioactive peptides help smooth the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles by supporting the proteins that weaken with age. These active ingredients work synergistically with the peptides to deliver vital phytonutrients and antioxidants.
What is the recommended age group for Bratoxinsta?
Bratoxinsta is suitable for all age groups. For more mature skin, its innovative formula can help reduce the existing signs of visible aging immediately, while for younger skin, it can help prevent and delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. “Women will see significant and rapid improvement to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. A woman in her 20’s and 30’s will be able to take a preventative approach to their skin care by maintaining tautness and wrinkle free texture longer,” says Dr. Kapoor.
Does it work?
I apply Bratoxinsta to the areas of my face where I see the wrinkles that I want to treat. Thankfully, I don't have that many! I apply a few drops around my lips and on my laugh lines. I dot a little onto my forehead as well. I love the tightening sensation that I feel as the product starts working to tighten my skin. In the day time, I use it before I apply my day creams/serums, and then follow with my foundation. I also use Bratoxinsta at night. I use it at night so that it can be working its wonders on my skin while I sleep. It works very well. My skin definitely looks years younger.

This Mother's Day, give your mom a gift that she will love. This year, I have chosen to give my own sweet mother Christie Brinkley's Authentic Skin Care for her Mother's Day gift. My mom deserves the very best, and Christie Brinkley's skin care is definitely the best! My mother is a beautiful woman. (Inside and out.) She has always taken very good care of her skin. She has tried many skin care regimens over the years and has spent a lot of money looking for 'that miracle product' that we have since learned, does not exist! But Christie Brinkley Authentic Skin Care comes pretty close!
Me and my beautiful mother
Below is a sneak peek of my mom's gifts that she is getting for Mother's day. I have listed each one along with a description and my thoughts of each product.
RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream~ This richly hydrating cream is the perfect daily moisturizer for use under your makeup or alone. My mom loves it because it keeps her skin supple and it has a very nice fragrance. My mother loves skin care products that have an uplifting scent.
COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash~ This gentle facial wash removes all traces of makeup, as well as eye makeup without irritating the eyes. It makes the skin clean and ready for the next facial product. I love how it keeps my skin from becoming oily and shiny.
RECAPTURE 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment~ What a richly penetrating night cream! This night cream absorbs perfectly and is not at all greasy or heavy. My skin is transformed upon wakening.
Refocus Eye + IR Defense~ Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatment with Bio-Copper Complex~ This formula is perfect for getting rid of dark circles and bags under my eyes.
Uplift Firming Neck and Decollete Treatment~ A luxurious, fast working cream that targets the décolleté and neck area with ingredients that help firm, smooth, brighten and rejuvenate the look of the delicate skin of the neck and chest. Uplift supports a firmer, smoother neckline. This is my mom's favorite product in this line.
Not only does Christie Brinkley have amazing skin care products, she has also recently created cosmetics that are beyond perfect! I was given the chance to review a gorgeous eye shadow palette, flawless foundation and richly hydrating lipstick.
FOREVER FLAWLESS Professional Finish Foundation - Its DNA damage-reducing formula contains Broad Spectrum SPF 40 protection. It’s powered by peptides and biomimetic ingredients that attract and bind moisture to the skin and infused with IR Defense.
This perfectly formulated foundation has skin care ingredients along with the most flawless, skin luminizing shades to enhance and beautify your face and neck.

Christie Brinkley is such a gorgeous woman! I hope that I can look as good as she does when I am her age!
I wanted to share with you, that on Monday July 24th Christie Brinkley will be appearing on HSN, with a limited time offer of Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare.
Christie will be offering a four piece kit including her signature Recapture Day Cream, Recapture 360 Night Cream, Refocus Eye Treatment and her latest product launch, The Thermal Detox Warming Cleaning Mask – all for $59.95. This is an incredible deal!
With these four essential products, they work together to protect and treat your skin all day and optimized repair at night. Christie’s latest product, Thermal Detox Warming Mask is a deep-cleansing , intensive, targeted heat-enhanced treatment developed to purify, nourish and leave skin feeling smooth.
I love Christy Brinkley's skincare! It is of the highest quality and makes my skin look and feel perfect. What is your favorite skin care line?
You have probably heard the expression, "Beauty is only skin deep." That is a very true statement in more ways than one. To keep your skin beautiful and youthful, you must take very good care of it. You can use all of the most expensive lotions and potions on the market, but none of it will really do you any good until you take care of what is below the surface of your skin. As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen. Collagen is an essential element to keeping the skin firm and wrinkle-free.
CORREXIKO's collagen supplement nourishes your skin from the inside out - so that your skin has everything it needs to stay firm, elastic and youthfully radiant.
Your Nutritional Target:
Boost your skin’s radiance and create dewy, plump and super soft skin with a blend that includes a Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Complex.
Correxiko Close Up Collagen Booster powder replaces the collagen lost through stress, natural aging and constant, intensive exercise. Collagen is an integral part of the skin and is a vital component of skin firmness, elasticity and the youthful glow. As collagen production decreases around the age of 18 and the effects of low collagen is visible by the age of 30, the Collagen Booster stands in the gap and provides the collagen your skin needs to feel fresher and look younger.
Your Daily Dose of Beauty:
The Collagen Booster enhances the look of aging skin by boosting collagen levels, improving elasticity, and preventing thinner skin as you age.
HIGH DOSE MARINE COLLAGEN
Our Hydrolysed Collagen is a more bioavailable form than Type 1 and Type 2 collagen powders, and is derived from 100% French Marine Collagen (with absolutely NO bovine or porcine collagen). You’re receiving all of the benefits of this doctor recommended, ground-breaking formula that includes a booster complex of skin healthy ingredients.
My Experience: I am thankful to say that I have been taking excellent care of my skin since I was in my twenties. And, being a beauty blogger, I am blessed to be able to experience the finest of skin care products to help me on my quest to look as youthful as I possibly can. I have been taking the Correxiko Collagen Booster supplement for a little over two weeks now. I blend it into my morning smoothie every day. It is a powder, and it does not have a taste. It easily blends with the fruit and ice in my blender.
I have definitely been noticing that my skin looks radiant and feels a lot firmer The crease between my brows has greatly diminished. I think that my skin tone has improved and my skin's hydration level has definitely increased.

Did you know that Vitamin C is good for your skin? It helps to repair collagen and to increase the synthesis of collagen, resulting in a firming effect for the skin. Vitamin C also brightens the skin, reduces wrinkles, and acts as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals and prevent future skin damage.
When it comes to keeping my skin looking as young and as radiant as possible, I use Vibriance Super C Serum.
Vibriance Super C Serum uses Acetyl Glucosamine, Synovea HR, Polyoprepolymer-2 and Ultra Filling Spheres™ to unlock the power of Vibriance's highly potent and stabilized Vitamin C.
Many C serums can dry out skin especially if your skin is sensitive, but unlike liquid Vitamin C serums sold in dropper bottles this serum will not dry out your skin. It should not give a tingling sensation (Vitamin C is not supposed to tingle. it's actually a sign of skin irritation if it's making your face tingle.)
Thankfully, Vibriance Super C feels amazing on my skin. I use it in the evening after I wash my face, (before I apply my night cream) and in the morning, alone under my foundation. (I wait for it to absorb into my skin first.) I am surprised that it gives me the perfect amount of moisture for daytime when I wear it under my makeup.
I have noticed after using this product for a few weeks that my skin looks very young and radiant. My fine lines are greatly diminished and my skin also looks firmer. I am really happy with this product and plan to be a lifelong customer!

Being a beauty blogger, I am blessed to be able to try out and test many different skin care products. Once in awhile, one will come along and I am thinking, "Wow!" Good Karma Skincare's Lux 7 All-in-One Face Cream is one of those products. It combines a day cream, night cream, refining serum and eye cream all in one jar! Plus, it really works wonders on my skin!
As a holistic practitioner with a demanding schedule, Cynthia Ransom was compelled to create much needed skincare products that are convenient, affordable, luxurious and truly natural….but most importantly, proven to yield genuine results.
Desiring an effective yet simple anti-aging routine, she began creating products using holistic ingredients and a few secret weapons. Her skin repairing arsenal included a mystical formula received from her client, a 68 year old Shaman that Cynthia will tell you has “amazing skin!”
The Shaman (or ‘medicine woman’) partnered with Good Karma to share her seven oil formula she received in meditation; thus Lux 7 was born. Using the oil as the foundation, Cynthia worked with bio-chemists for over two years to perfect her nutrient dense formulations. Once finalized, simplifying the beauty process was realized by taking four of her products; a daily moisturizer, a skin refining serum, an eye cream and a night cream and combining them into ONE JAR. Thus Lux 7 All-in-One Face Cream was born.
Using her holistic science knowledge and experience, Cynthia also helped to pioneer a new process used in all Good Karma products; Bio-Fresh™ is advanced homeopathy that helps to preserve the integrity of ingredients and direct the botanicals to work in synergy, creating beautiful complexions. And of course, they kept the original seven oil recipe as Lux 7 Rejuvenating Facial Oil.
Good Karma Skincare’s ingredients are derived from 100% natural and renewable resources. Cynthia’s Holistic background takes it even further, banning many unsafe natural and hidden ingredients commonly found in other products. Good Karma proudly boasts; “We don’t test on animals, we feed them”. As a matter of fact, a portion of every sale supports their program Beauty feeds the Beasts™, which provides a meal for an animal in a shelter. Now that’s Good Karma!
I received a sample of Lux 7 All-in-One Face Cream to review and I have been using it for two weeks straight, both morning and night. The first thing I noticed was the light, creamy texture. After cleansing, I apply it all over my face, neck and chest area. It absorbs completely and makes my skin feel nice and refreshed.
As the days went by, I noticed that my skin looks so much younger. Any lines I was worried about have been reduced significantly. I never get greasy looking during the day the way I do with other day creams. Lux 7 All-in-One Face Cream is the perfect day and night cream and I would definitely recommend it to busy moms who don't have a lot of time to pamper themselves. It is very affordable, too! It is so much cheaper to have just one cream that does it all instead of 3-4 different ones that take up space, plus your money.
Good Karma Face Cream makes my skin glow!
About Good Karma Skincare
Founded in 2013, Good Karma Skincare is based on holistic science and the wisdom of a Shaman. As a traditional Naturopath, our founder Cynthia Ransom believed it was possible to achieve real results using therapeutic dosages of nutrients instead of chemicals AND do it in a simplified manner. Taking her four top products and putting them in one jar took 2 years to prefect; Lux 7 Four in One Face Cream is a game changer in the beauty arena. Previously concentrating on local clientele, Good Karma is now ready to go national because Everyone Deserves Good Karma!

Beauty Bucket List 10 Unexpected Must Do Things
Want to look, feel and think more beautifully? We called upon several experts in dermatology, longevity, psychology and even plastic surgery to bring you 10 unexpected things to consider adding to your beauty bucket list. They are...
1. Only drink water for 30 days. Imagine the benefits to your skin, hair, nails and overall body when you cut out sugars, caffeine, alcohol, and anything artificial and go straight H20. Dr. Christopher Calapai D.O. anti aging and stem cell specialist says, "be sure to drink pure water and if it gets boring add lemon, lime, or blueberries. Within the first week you will notice skin that is plump, glowing, clear and soft. By the second week people will take notice asking what you have done. The difference, for those who stick to a water only beverage plan for 30 days is astounding."
2. Ditch all facial products for a month. Look at your bathroom countertop and drawers. Product overload is common. Perhaps you bought into the promises of one product then jumped to another and another. Clear the clutter and clear your skin. Dr. Kally Papantoniou a board certified dermatologist in New York urges people to get rid of old expired skincare products and get back to basics. Using a simple non comedogenic facial cleanser and a moisturizer with SPF each day for a month will allow the skin to heal itself and return to a natural state. After 2 weeks of a simplified skincare regimen you may see fewer and less intense breakouts, less dryness or less oil.
3. Change your hair color and style.
It's quite common for women to drastically change their hair after a break-up but why wait for an emotional upheaval? Have long hair? Try a pixie cut! Have a short brown bob? Go blonde! Dr. Sanam Hafeez, NYC based licensed neuropsychologist and teaching faculty member at the prestigious Columbia University Teacher’s College, explains that our hair is a huge part of our identity. "When we really want a change in our lives, the fastest way to shift your mind towards forward progression is to alter our appearance in a major way. The best part with experimenting with hair is that it can grow back and you can enjoy different styles during the grow out process."
4. Give the girls a lift or go smaller! Dr. John Zannis a board certified plastic surgeon from North Carolina, says that breast augmentation done to mothers who breastfed multiple children is a game changer. "These women come in to see me feeling as if their breasts don't match their zest for life. They want them lifted and fuller and back to what they were before breastfeeding." Further women whose smaller frame can't handle large breasts leading to back and neck strain and even nerve damage can benefit from breast reduction. "Breast reduction changes lives. I have seen it in my practice. Women feel free going from an F cup to a full B. No more neck aches and shoulder pain not to mention bra straps digging into skin."
5. Learn to meditate. Want to appear 5 - 10 years younger within a month? Start meditating. Studies have shown that people who meditate are more optimistic, more calm and able to remain focused. They seem to breathe more deeply and have this general vibe of self-awareness. People who meditate know how to declutter their minds of worrisome thoughts that only perpetuate accelerated aging and illness. Dr. Hafeez encourages her patients to meditate by engaging all 5 senses. "When we sit or lay still and focus on our breathing and immediate surroundings we become fully present."
6. Get a skin check up, head to toe by a pro. People mistakenly think that total body skin screenings are for the pale and cancer prone. This is not the case. Even people who never burn in the sun should have a check up. "There are places where precancerous moles like to hide such as in the scalp, behind ears, in-between toes and under nails," explains Dr. Papantoniou. "It's always good to be safe and get moles and other growths looked at as we age."
7. Get it "fixed." Maybe you broke your nose playing soccer at 14 and it never healed right affecting your breathing not to mention making a common cold a catastrophe. Now that you're an adult and your facial bones have settled into place consider a nose job. Dr. Zannis, warns that a broken nose can complicate breathing which can lead to sleep apnea and a host of other sinus issues. "Most of the time it's not only a cosmetic issue it goes deeper than that. It's important that the functionality of the nose is a priority. Many of my cases have experienced an injury to their nose which not only affected the appearance but their breathing."
8. Buy a luxurious bathrobe. Admit it those robes found at spas and 5 star hotels are comfortable, really really, really comfortable. It's amazing how something so simple can really make you feel so beautiful. "Adding a touch of luxury to your life is a kind way to pamper yourself. Women of all shapes and sizes have body issues so if it feels great to wrap your body in a plush terry cloth robe go for it!, offers Dr. Hafeez.
9. Go back to bedtime. When we sleep our body repairs itself. When we are overworked, over worried and sleep deprived our bodies don't have the time to regenerate. This leads to a slower metabolism, poor organ function and sallow, wrinkled skin. "As we age we need a set bedtime and wake-time. The sleep cycle is pivotal for cellular turnover. New mothers often see more wrinkles and a difference in skin texture and radiance because they are awakened several times during the night," offers Dr. Calapai. Ideally adults need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep each night.
10. Get those earlobes repaired! From the most simple ear lobe repair for a torn ear lobe, to the more complex repair of ear gauges, you can now have your ear lobe back. Dr. Papantoniou offers this procedure in office, with local anesthesia and stitches that are dissolvable. "The ear heals very quickly and scars are minimal. The ear can be re-pierced 2-3 months after having the repair surgery," she explains.
Regardless of where you are on your beauty journey of life know that how we feel matters most and feeling good from the inside always makes the outside more healthy, vibrant and beautiful.

I love it when I get the chance to review new skin care brands. With all of the scientific research and breakthroughs, I am always hoping that we are one step closer to discovering the fountain of youth, so that I can look young forever. (A girl can always dream, can't she?)
Alpha Blu Skin Care is the latest skin care line that I have had the pleasure of trying out. Alpha Blu is an advanced skin care system with cytokines, premium naturals and ingredients derived directly from ethically harvested stem cells. I am definitely intrigued!
I received a set of Alpha Blu's four new skin essentials to review which includes: Day Cream, Night Cream, Eye Cream and Skin Serum.
After cleansing my face at night using my favorite cleanser, I first apply the Skin Serum all over my face, neck and upper chest area. It feels amazing and completely absorbs into my skin without leaving any greasy residue. Next, I apply the Eye Cream and gently pat it until it absorbs into my skin. This eye cream is a miracle in itself! It takes away bagginess and fine lines seem to vanish.
Next, I apply the Night Cream, which is heavenly! I always awaken to skin that looks completely refreshed and rejuvenated. The next morning, I follow the same steps, except I use the Day Cream. I love it! It absorbs very nicely and all of my facial lines just plump out and disappear. On warmer days, I have skipped the day cream and used just the Skin Serum and it works perfectly as a makeup primer!
After using Alpha Blu skin care for about one week now, I have glowing skin that definitely appears younger, smoother, firmer and more hydrated. Just see for yourself in my photo below.
You can purchase the set of four Alpha Blu products as a one time purchase, or you can order it to be delivered to your door monthly. (I have a feeling that is what I might be doing in the near future!)
