Pür Minerals NEW CC Cream with SPF 40 ~ Plus Review

Bye-Bye BB, Say Hello to Pür Mineral’s Newest Launch – The Broad Spectrum SPF 40 CC Cream!

Pür Minerals introduces their new CC Cream with SPF 40. Pür’s CC protects, corrects and perfects skin’s appearance with clinically advanced, plant based ingredients. This silicone-free formula works to erase brown spots, blemishes, redness and fine lines while balancing uneven skin tone.
Pür’s CC Cream is formulated with two unique ingredients:

DERMAPUR HP - a special complex extracted from meadowsweet that’s rich in clarifying phenolic acids.

CLARISKIN II - a unique agent made from wheat germ that targets the look of discoloration with key antioxidants.

Available in four shades:

With summer here, I want my face to be clear now more than ever. I want the brown spots, blemishes, redness and fine lines to be much less noticeable. With little ones, it seems like we always want to take day trips in the summer. We love to go to the zoo, the Aquarium, parks, fairs, amusement parks, water parks and more. The problem is with it being summer these places are super hot so your makeup sometimes does not want to last the whole day. When your makeup starts to fade then your little skin imperfections do start to become more noticeable. Luckily, for me the Pur Minerals CC Cream with SPF 40 has come to the rescue for not only imperfections but also protection from the sun. 


This product works amazing. It goes onto your skin very easily and blends in with ease. My face has not broken out, gotten red or had any issues from using this product. The results however are very nice. When we go on our day trips I have noticed when my makeup starts to fade, my face does not have as many issues that are noticeable. I do not think about going to the restroom and trying to do a quick touchup so that my blemishes are not showing. They simply are not as noticeable with using this product. I love the results that this product is offering me and can see myself continuing to use this product for these results. I also am happy that my face is being protected from the sun. 

Pür Minerals is available at ULTA Stores nationwide, professional spas and physician offices and online via www.purminerals.com for $38.

Kimberly Snyder’s Quinoa, Avocado and Corn Salad

With Memorial Day around the corner, New York Times best selling author of The Beauty Detox Foods and celebrity nutritionist, Kimberly Snyder, thought it would be useful to supply you with this yummy and super healthy dish that is easy to pack for that summer kickoff party. Indulge in this yummy Quinoa, Avocado and Corn Salad recipe!

Kimberly Snyder’s Quinoa, Avocado and Corn Salad
The only pre-prep with this dish is to be sure to soak the quinoa overnight. Finalize the rest of the recipe in the morning or early afternoon.  It tastes great at room temperature, so it’s perfect to bring to the barbeque, pool party, park or beach!
Ingredients:
3 cups water
1 ½ cups dry quinoa
Raw kernels or 2 ears of organic corn (preferably white, if available), shaved right from the cob
2 avocados, sliced and cut into 1-inch pieces
3 Tbs. finely chopped red onion

Dressing Ingredients:
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. Bragg Liquid Aminos or low-sodium tamari
1 Tbs. brown rice vinegar

Directions:
*Be sure to soak the quinoa overnight in water and rinse well before using.

In a saucepan bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat, add quinoa and simmer until the water is absorbed and the grains become translucent and soft (about 10 to 15 minutes). Pour the quinoa through a strainer and set it to the side in a bowl.

Blend all the dressing ingredients together in a blender until smooth, or simply add them to a small bowl and whisk well with a fork.

Add the kernels of corn to the quinoa, along with the avocado and chopped onion. Mix well. Pour the dressing on top of the mixture and mix well again.
