     Murad became a leader in skincare science since its establishment in 1989 thanks to Dr Murad, hailed as "one of the country's best dermatologists" by Vogue magazine.
     I had one of the greatest opportunity to try the Resurgence Introductory kit  by Murad
Resurgence® Introductory Kit
I have to admit Im 40 years old and dont think I look old BUT..maybe thats just me. Im 40 so this was a great product for me to be invited to try and Im really really liking it. Ill be the first to admit my skin is far from being as firm as a teenager and I could use all the help I can get. 
     I received this and  did notice the "good housekeeping" symbol at the bottom that just means its a tried and true product, been tested and tested to make sure others agree with what is being promoted. 
     The Resurgence has been promoted on TV and Joan Lunden has been the product sponsor claiming the benefits from using this product. You can either order from a TV ad or just go to resurgence-30-day to order your very own. 
     The Resurgence kit comes with a 1) Cleanse and Tone Renewing cleansing Cream, 2) Treat/Repair Age Diffusing Serum & Renewing eye cream and finally a 3) Hydrate /Protect Age Balancing cream. Each step is numbered in the order that is recommended to get the most from the product.
Step 1 Renewing Cleansing cream:
Renewing Cleansing Cream I did shake mine before use otherwise the liquid was coming out and according to package it is a pearlized wash. You dampen your face and neck then massage it in, rinse with warm water then pat dry. I have admit it has a great smell, and the color is very shiny and pearly, it lathers nicely and feels nice on the skin almost as if your skin is smiling. A small amount is all you need as it lathers alot!
 Step 2 Age diffusing serum
After you cleanse with the cleanser you use the age diffusing serum. I did as it said and chose to use a "thin layer" THIN is key, a little goes a longgg way :) It spreads very nicely and has such a nice smell as well. You massage it over your entire face, but stay away from your eyes TRUST ME:) It states it increases firmness in 10 minutes and honestly(IMO) I did notice a considerable tightening feeling.
Step2 does have a second product Renewing Eye Cream and this one you dab around under eyes as well up to the brow line.
Renewing Eye Cream

 Step3  2 is applying the Age Balancing night(Day)cream. It does state for optimal performance you follow the serum with the cream. The cream provides maximum hydration to restore suppleness.
Age-Balancing Night Cream
I really like the way my skin feels after just using the products in the kit, the cleanser is so refreshing, the eye cream is so soft feeling, the serum is so silky, and the night cream is so moisturizing. If you are concerned about the signs of aging this is a great product to try, the price is reasonable and the quality is outstanding. 

I want to thank Murad for giving me the opportunity to try this GREAT Resurgence Pack. I offered to provide my honest feedback and was not compensated in any way besides receiving the products to review.

Murad Clarifying Cleanser..Thank you to Beautybar

     I had the chance to try out "Murad Clarifying Cleanser" in my BeautyBar box and I have to admit it is a remarkable product. When I originally looked at it I thought, "for acne?? I dont have acne!!", but let me tell you it is the most gentle cleanser i have ever used. Im 40 years old(ughh) and Ive never had any significant facial flaws, rarely get pimples and never had a problem as severe to need an acne cleanser. When I received this I thought Id give it a try what could it hurt, then I said "OMG that feels wonderful!!".
     I tried the product as a nightly regimine, I would massage it onto my face and neck nightly to remove excess oil and dirt I accrued through the day, do my teeth, then rinse it off. After it was rinsed off ,my face felt so clean and refreshed as if i had been cleansing and toning with the ease of just apply and rinse. The cleanser is so gentle and pure and I have really enjoyed using this product, as someone without acne it is a MUST have.
     Ingredients you ask?? The first ingredient is water, yep WATER!! Perfect for troubled skin!!

     Have you heard of gutzy gear?? I hadn't either till I participated in a Mommy Party and I received a box of items that I had no idea what it was.

      Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your backback, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies.

Book Review #2 Cancer on the brain by Jay Lefevers

     I received this book as a review and this was only my second time reviewing a book, so mind you "it can only get better".

     This book is a memoir written by the same person this book is about and what a miraculous story he tells. It starts off with alot many of us know about, the inept of our healthcare system but particularly some doctors. The auther had a true heart and his heart was very much involved in his writing from his first notices of a problem to not letting that problem get him down. I think with all that he accomplished and shared not only with his family and friends but the "troubled" kids he was involved with his true passion prevails. This book is a memoir so it tells of his struggles, his ups and downs, his hurt and happiness and the truth he was a "TRUE" fighter and wasnt going to let any illness get him down. His passion for the kids was awe inspiring, his ability to bring his company to a higher level was outstanding, being able to keep the family together and never giving up is something alot of us should follow.
     If you are looking for a true book on courage that will put a smile on your face and a smile in your heart look no further.

Woolite not just your moms detergent!! Crowdtap share

     I had the opportunity offered to me to review and share a Woolite campaign for Crowdtap. I received a box with samples and coupons and plenty of info to pass around of which I did while shopping. When I made a trip to Walmart I had a tendency to hang out in the detergent area till I was out of samples that I had on me that day, since I did want to be that obnoxious shopper bugging everyone I only carried 3 samples at a time.
     When I was growing up in the 70s and 80s i remember all the commercials Woolite used to show, always discussing gentle on your most gentle of garments. Boy, has Woolite changed over the years, it has grown from being only made or used for a specific fabric or material to be made to accompany ANY fabric(of course you do need to test your fabric first). The Woolite brand has been around for a long time and has been tested tried and true to consumers.
     Do you have dark clothes??jeans?? Well we have a Woolite for that!!
     Do you have a baby??delicate clothes?? You guessed it one for that as well!!
     Do you need a detergent for your general laundering routine?? Well need I say more!!!
     Woolite does not contain any harsh ingredients, its gentle on your laundry, and has an active ingredient to reduce the shrinking of your most favorite piece of clothing.

     Do you have questions regarding your laundry?? Woolite has the perfect website for you handy and easily accessible it answers all your questions you might have on those most pesky laundering issues, as well as provides you with some handy tips...WOOLITE tips

     Thank you crowdtap for this opportunity and look forward to working with you again!!

BookReview..The Dawn of Saudi..In Search for Freedom by Homa Pourasgari

I had the privilege of reading your book "The Dawn of Saudi" as being a Business2Blogger reader and writer. 
     When I first started reading the book i was very intrigued and captivated  by reading this fiction book. It started off being so realistic in the way it was written, very in depth writing that I had no problem following along with the story line. It was portrayed the main character, Sahar , as a very dominant figure in the book she was mentioned from beginning to end. When Dawn came into play and was mentioned I was curious how she tied into the story but as I was reading it was very apparent who "Dawn" was and why she had been mentioned but was not a key player at the beginning. I enjoyed the "Jason" character as he really didnt fit in with any of the characters, he was a businessmen and he was very open in relationships, he became the very caring and compassionate character. I thought, you, as the author really had a fantastic way of writing as I felt pulled into the story. This book started off as reading when i had that brief moment, to a cant put it down till I was finished. 
     It was very enjoyable reading, not enjoyable to the pain and hurt, but enjoyable as an eye opening of a different culture in recent time. The three characters really had a way of meshing through the book. 
     Thank you for allowing me to read and enjoy your writing, as well Thank you for signing my book:)
