Keeping Skin Youthful & Radiant | Pura Organics

How fortunate are we, bloggers, to be able to learn about new brands and try new products that we possibly wouldn't have heard about if we weren't apart of the blogosphere? The answer is VERY. The newest brand on my radar is Pura Organics. If you haven't heard about the brand, they're the first preventative anti-aging skincare line developed for women in their 20s and 30s, by women in their 20s and 30s. Their products are made from the highest quality of natural ingredients and are also cruelty-free.

To put it simply, we are not getting any younger and I'm sure we all know that our skin does not stay the way it is. However, there is a way that we can prevent (or at least slow down) the aging process.  And that is by taking care of your skin. So when Pura Organics got in touch, I jumped at the chance to try their products in hopes to preserve my youthful skin a little while longer. They were generous enough to send me two products of my choice, so I opted for their Rejuvenating Cleanser* and the Firming Night Moisturizer*.

The first product I picked out from them was the Rejuvenating Cleanser* for the sole reason that I was running low on my then-current cleanser. Talk about "killing two birds with one stone". First of all, can we please talk about packaging? All their products come in a frosted glass bottle/jar and they look & feel luxe. Another thing I like about the packaging is that this cleanser comes with a pump. Love

Anyways, when I first pumped out some of the cleanser onto my hand, I was a bit put off by the texture which turned out be on the milky side of the spectrum. Usually, cleansers with that consistency don't always cleanse my face of makeup/dirt compared to other cleansers. However, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed to see that this removed everything. Not a single trace of foundation was on the Nip+Fab Glycolic Pad that typically follows after I'm done with cleansing. Also, since it is that milky texture, it's really gentle feeling on the skin. 

One thing to note about this is the scent. It has a really sweet yet pleasant smell to it, that doesn't bother me, but if you're sensitive to that scents, that's something to be weary of. Of course, the scent doesn't linger after the cleanser is washed away. After using this consistently, I'm glad to report that my skin hasn't reacted negatively to it, instead it always feels clean and fresh after use, it doesn't dry or strip my skin, and, dare I say it, my skin even looks a tad more radiant. I'm super satisfied with this cleanser and will continue to use it!

The second one I picked out was their Firming Night Moisturizer*. I was very excited to give this one a try. As you can see in the photo above, it looks a little thick and I'd have to say it's not extremely thick, but it does have a thicker feel to it compared to my other moisturizers so I prefer to leave this one for my night time routine. When applying it onto the face, it feels so nice & smooth and you could instantly feel a shock of hydration penetrating your skin, which I very much appreciate after a long day. Again, this moisturizer has a light, but pleasant scent.

The claims for this guy is that it reduces and prevents the appearance of fine lines, provides noticeably firmer and tighter skin within days of use, and delivers nutrient-rich hydration. Now I can very much agree with the hydration part. I also notice that my skin looks a whole lot better and feels better after using this religiously. As for the fine lines claim, I can't say I do or don't notice a difference as I don't have them yet. However, I'm glad that I am using something that will prevent me from getting them.

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.

What lengths are you going to to prevent aging?
