My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI

massage envy spa My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI Now that I am closing in on my 30′s, I have began to pay closer attention to the products that I am using on my skin. Days without sunscreen, anti-aging lotions, and hats are a thing of the past. I guess you could say pretty much anything that can be damaging to my skin is off limits. Thankfully, I am blessed to have good genetics in the skin department and have pretty healthy skin thus far.

Over the years I have heard how awesome spa facials can be for the skin, body, and soul. I have admittedly never had one done by a licensed esthetician until recently. It was on my “before thirty bucket list”, and actually got checked off this past weekend when I made the trip to my local Massage Envy Spa in East Providence, RI.

massage envy spa RI My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI Through advertisements, and magazine stories I have only heard great things about Massage Envy. In light of the Spa for Ma event which is currently taking place, I received the opportunity to get a 1 hour Murad Facial, and I even received an extra gift for one lucky local reader to get a 1 hour massage! Right from the start, each of the folks I dealt with at Massage Envy were very accommodating and generous to provide such great services for our event.

When I arrived at my local Massage Envy Spa located at 5 Catamore Blvd. East Providence, RI 02914, I was immediately greeted by the reception. Inside, the spa was very clean, and relaxing. The walls neatly displayed the spa’s signature products which included the Murad line of facial product, specifically formulated for Massage Envy. Giant plush chairs, mints, and water welcomed guests to a full experience of total bliss.

inside massage envy  My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI After checking in, I was led to a room with amazing ambience to wait for my facial. The very dimly lit room boasted flickering candles, a faux fire place, comfortable chairs, and fruit infused water. It was very peaceful, and extremely relaxing. My wait was so short that I only got to spend a few minutes unwinding and anticipating my spa treatment.

When my esthetician arrived to lead me to my room, she was extremely personable, and friendly. She was also very relatable and down to earth which helped me to relax and unwind. Her name was Sarah, and I totally would recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable skin care expert. She gave me a black light skin care analysis, and showed me around the spa room, and told me what to expect which was great!

After getting comfortable in the plush, and heated spa bed, Sarah came back in and began my 1 hour facial. She set up her products, wrapped a protective head band around me, and began to go over my treatment. Since my skin was very healthy, and average with a slightly overactive t-zone she recommend the Murad Vitamin C Facial, which I received.

massage envy specials  My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI I have to say, the entire one hour experience was very relaxing, and had me almost falling asleep. My face was massage so incredible that I could feel the tension melting away. She also massaged my neck, and upper shoulder area which was so amazing. I loved that she explained every step of the way, and made sure I was comfortable–which I was! I am surprised that I waited so long to experience a Massage Envy facial because it was so blissful, and a real treat for my skin.

After my facial, my skin felt smooth, silky, and looked rejuvenated. There were no more lackluster skin patches, or gunky pores which was great! Even the following days, my skin is still amazing and looks even better!! The best part is, there are no excuses as to why you cannot get a Murad facial! They have specially formulated facial kits for all skin types.

Normally, a 1 hour facial at Massage Envy is $109.99 but I have to say it is worth every penny. By becoming a member you can also take advantage of amazing benefits which include your choice of one free 1 hour massage, or facial each month–your choice!  I can see myself heading back to Massage Envy East Providence because the place is clean, relaxing, and the staff is friendly!

massage envy gc My Murad Vitamin C Facial Experience at Massage Envy East Providence RI The folks at Massage Envy Spa located at 5 Catamore Blvd. East Providence, RI 02914 gave us an extra gift card for a 1 hour massage to give away to one LOCAL reader.

Puritan’s Pride: Nourishing Our Immune Systems For the Back to School Season

Puritan’s Pride: Nourishing Our Immune Systems For the Back to School Season

Puritans Pride Supplements  Puritans Pride: Nourishing Our Immune Systems For the Back to School SeasonI have to confess, I love the whole feel of the back to school seasons for many reasons. Getting new school supplies for my kids, picking out new wardrobes, and helping them prepare for new life chapters of learning all make my heart smile. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your child eagerly counting down until school begins. The only thing I dread about my kids going back to school is the increase in germs they will be exposed to.

Honestly, it seems it never fails that my kids are the first to bring nasty germs home, and I seem to always be the first to catch them. My immune system used to be so poor that I would seemingly get sick every month with something new. I was getting my rest, exercise, and water, but I was lacking one of the biggest key factors to nourishing my immune system–vitamins!

I must be one of the worst people ever when it comes to remembering to take my vitamins. My diligence at taking them was awful, but my intentions were good. Thankfully, I have learned from my lack of organization, and have been on a 6 month regimen that is working. I take a woman’s multi vitamin, along with several other tailored all natural supplements. Some are for my hair, skin, and nails, others for my joints, and mood. They are most definitely working, and I have companies like Puritan’s Pride to thank for that.

About Puritan’s Pride:

Puritan’s Pride began over 40 years ago, with the mission of making the finest quality nutritional supplements available at the best value to their customers. Today, the company remains true to its original commitment and serves millions of loyal customers. Puritan’s Pride manufactures thousands of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutritional supplements in their state-of-the art facilities located throughout the U.S. As part of the company’s commitment to quality, Puritan’s Pride only uses ingredients from suppliers worldwide that meet their Quality Assurance Standards, as well as Good Manufacturing Practices food quality standards.

My experience:

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to review a great selection of Puritan’s Pride supplements these past couple of weeks. We will be entering week 3 soon, and are very impressed with our energy levels, and overall quality of life. My skin, hair, nails, mood, and digestive system are all in sync, and I just feel great about life! Before taking supplements I honestly felt like a slug, and lacked motivation to get things done. Now that my iron deficiency is satisfied thanks to taking my Puritan’s Pride Women’s One Daily Multivitamins; I feel amazing!

B-12 vitamins and woman’s supplements

I really have no idea why I waited years to start taking supplements tailored to being a woman! The Puritan’s Pride Women’s One Daily Multivitamins provide my body with every nutrient I need. The vitamin size is pretty standard and easy to swallow with a beverage. I have also bee taking the Vitamin B-12 500 mcg, and the Omega-3 Fish Oil 100 mg. I have to say, I am happy with Puritan’s Pride because it is not extra fishy like other brands.

  • Women’s One Daily Multivitamins: This multivitamin is tailor-made for women. Once-daily formula provides a valuable array of vitamins and minerals. Includes 1000 IU of Vitamin D to support bone and immune system health.*
  • One Daily Men’s MultivitaminThis multivitamin is tailor-made for men. Once-daily formula provides a comprehensive array of vitamins and minerals. Includes 700 IU of Vitamin D to support bone and immune system health, and 100% of the Daily Value of Zinc to aid with energy metabolism and male reproductive health.*
  • Vitamin B-12 500 mcgB-12 Ener-B® formula delivers the essential B vitamin B-12 to support energy metabolism in the body.* Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the normal formation of blood cells, contributes to the health of the nervous system, and helps maintain circulatory health.*
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil 100 mgProvides 300 mg of active Omega-3.Supports heart health.* Purified to eliminate mercury. This Ester-Omega® Fish Oil provides 300mg of total omega-3 fatty acids, comprising of EPA, DHA and other fatty acids.

Men’s supplements and fish oil

Altogether, this cocktail of supplements have all been working together to “well oil” my machine, and provide me with nutrients that I do not always get from the foods I consume. My husband is very happy with his One Daily Men’s Multivitamin as well. We hope that our Puritan’s Pride Supplements will help keep our immune system strong for all the germs the back to school seasons graciously presents us with.

With all the hundreds of vitamin companies on the market, you would be crazy not to shop at Puritan’s Pride. They have the most amazing discounts at up to 85% off and even plenty of options for FREE shipping. Through September 1st (Labor Day) you can get up to 85% off and FREE shipping!!

Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen Supplements

Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen Supplements

youtheory coconut Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen SupplementsBrittle, dry, peeling, and cracked nails were something that I thought I would just have to live with. There is nothing more frustrating than owning over one hundred beautiful nail polishes and not being able to use them. My finger nails were so incredibly weak that they’d even bend backwards, and that folks is NOT a good feeling.

Things I’ve tried to strengthen my nails:

I read online that increasing my water intake would help. After drinking close to one gallon a day the past year that wasn’t working. I certainly flushed out my kidneys though!

I read eating fruits and veggies would help-honestly, I saw no change at all!

I increased my proteins…nada

Started taking a very basic multivitamin–that helped, but the strength was not there that I wanted..they still peeled, chipped, and bent.

joint collagen coconut Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen SupplementsHonestly, I did all of the above for close to one year and the strong, diamond strength nails I yearened for just weren’t happening. Then I requested two bottles of supplements from the company called Youtheory. They were eager to be an official sponsor for the Spa for Ma event, so I obliged. I chose the Coconut and Joint Collagen Supplements to try out. I walk 4-5 miles per day so I figured this would help my bones and the Coconut could possibly help my skin? I really had no idea what to expect.

healthy nails  Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen SupplementsBy coincidence, each product requires a 2 capsule serving per day. So that is what I have been taking the last week. Yup, that is right..I have just been taking these for one week! However, the differences in my body are already VERY apparent. I am sooo darn excited that my nails are growing in strong, and resisting bending. Plus, my joint pain from walking is starting to feel much better. Sometimes, I think we psychologically believe things are working for us, but I actually see, and feel results. I just wish I has known about these supplements years earlier!

youtheory supplements  Healthy Nails and Body thanks to Youtheory: Coconut & Joint Collagen SupplementsYoutheory sells a variety of supplements that can beautify you from the inside out at any age. They sells a variety of collagen blends, coconut, green coffee bean, and even resveratrol supplements. Their products can be purchased online, and at stores like CVS, GNC, and Walgreens.

Do b∙lēve Anti-Aging Facial Care Products Really Work?

bleve facecare Do b∙lēve Anti Aging Facial Care Products Really Work?In exactly one month I will enter a new chapter of my life because I will be entering my 30′s! My 20′s were full of firsts and included getting married, getting my degree, having kids, and buying a home. Their were plenty of ups, and even a few downs, but I am looking forward to entering a new chapter of blessed life!

Physically, I feel better than ever, but I have to say that I recently had a little meltdown.. I noticed that when I do not get a well rested sleep, in shows under my eyes. Now, I don’t see any major wrinkles yet *thank God* but I am not a fan of puffy under eyes!! I have been using facial anti-aging creams for the past 14 years so I’d like to think I am on track with keeping a youthful appearance, but the whole puffy eye thing is for the birds.

beleve face products  Do b∙lēve Anti Aging Facial Care Products Really Work?I have never used targeted under eye products in the past, but have accepted that now is the time to start! I recently received two products in from the b∙lēve Anti-Aging Facial Care that are specifically targeted for help combat aging. These products are both derived from natural drape extract technology and they are VERY compatible with my skin type! I am actually very impressed with them!

Here is what I received:

b-bright Eye Roll-on

b-youthful Face and Eye Serum

bleve eye roller  Do b∙lēve Anti Aging Facial Care Products Really Work?Ok, so first things first: If you are looking for skin care products that you can actually AFFORD then this line is EXACTLY what you want to try! I have tested various skin care creams in the past that were priced well into the hundreds, but really only boasted high end packaging. The creams were irritating and fell short of what I was looking for. The b∙lēve b-youthful Face and Eye Serum is actually very gentle on my skin, and is very silkening. It leaves my face feeling hydrated, supple, and soft. The product weights is 2 ounces but a little seems to go a long way.

Before the eye roller

The star of the show for me had to be the b-bright Eye Roll-on. I was amazed by how cold the metal ball was, and how fast the product shrunk my tired, puffy under eyes! Ok, so I didn’t have HUGE bags, but there was a little fluid buildup from not getting those Zzzzs. One pass under each eye, and a few minutes later my eyes were vibrant, and well rested. At just $14.99, I can totally dig the price, and results.

amy30 Do b∙lēve Anti Aging Facial Care Products Really Work?

After! No puffs!

Overall, the price, results, and feel of b∙lēve Anti-Aging Facial Care Products are just right! They are my two latest go to products for a youthful, refreshed look. In fact, they are part of my new beauty routine. These two products in conjunction with some mascara, and gloss, and we are good to go. These products are sold is grocery retailers, and can be purchased online.

Want to try these products for yourself? We will be giving away a set of them to one lucky reader during our Spa for Ma HUGE giveaway event starting September 1st!!

Learn Why You Should be on the Qwikword Social Media Site: Your Word, Your World! #onewordrevolution

Qwikword  Learn Why You Should be on the Qwikword Social Media Site: Your Word, Your World!This day in age, I think it is safe to say that we all enjoy social media from time to time. For me, social media is a way to express myself with the entire world. I can’t say that even just 15 years ago, I would have thought social media would have came this far, but I am glad it has! I recently became acquainted with a new social media site that is similar to other social media platforms in that it has the ability to connect people from around the globe in seconds. It is called Qwikword and it is definitely a new social media site that you want to be on!

Qwikword sign in Learn Why You Should be on the Qwikword Social Media Site: Your Word, Your World!When I first signed up for the Beta version of Qwikword, I found it to be very easy to navigate. Basically, it thrives on user uploading really awesome pictures or articles. Then, you add a one work description to the picture. You may choose the words sexy, yummy, or even colorful to describe your photo. This allows other users to interact with your image by searching for that particular word. Think of it like Instagram with a twist for connecting with others.

qwikword spark dashboard Learn Why You Should be on the Qwikword Social Media Site: Your Word, Your World!With Qwikword, you can also choose your “Spark Flow”. There will be certain pictures that allow you to like them. Sparks can be private, or shared with the world. I found everything from colorful lizards, to precious newborn babies. Like every social media site, there is a place to build a friends list, connect with people of similar interest, and search the most influential people on the site. Since I am enjoying Qwikword, I thought these features were great so I can share the good news about the platform.

spark on qwikword Learn Why You Should be on the Qwikword Social Media Site: Your Word, Your World!I really think that Qwikword has a great edge for businesses too because unlike Instagram, it allows users to link to their pictures from their blogs, or urls. For me, it is invaluable because if I add a visually appealing recipe Spark, it has the potential to really get noticed with the right descriptive word. Hopefully, users would want to see how I made the recipe to recreate it themselves, therefore generating traffic to my site.

Overall, I think the Beta version of Qwikword is pretty sweet. I urge you all to check it out and start adding some Sparks. I have, and enjoy going on a visually stimulating journey when I search for certain words.  I honestly do think Qwikword has the potential to be huge, and engaging for all ages. Qwikword will be officially launched later this September.
