Morning & A Giveaway

October 17, 2014

12 Can’t wait for the weekend: a slow(er) morning means that there’s time to catch up on the little things that were sacrificed during a busy workweek (like magazines!). And there’s no excuse for skipping steps in my skincare routine so I always start the week feeling refreshed & brighter. This weekend is definitely going to be devoted to some re-energizing.

And a Giveaway! I’ve partnered up with Japanese skincare brand Equitance to celebrate the launch of their line in the US (catch up on my first and second posts with them here and here)! After 18 years of brightening research, Equitance discovered that linoleic acid, a natural ingredient that is extracted from safflower seed oil and purified, had a measurable effect on skin brightening and minimizing the appearance of dark spots. They also patented a microcapsule technology that maximizes the delivery of the linoleic acid onto the skin. After seeing my skin endure what I can only say was a wild (and wildly disheartening) roller-coaster ride post-pregnancy, I’m so happy with the results so far – it looks brighter than its been in a long, long time.  I would love to have you take Equitance for a test drive too! We’ll send the full-size brightening collection to one lucky winner and five runner-ups will receive the skin care trial kit. To enter, visit and leave a comment here with your email address by October 24 I’ll contact the winners next week!
