Hairstylists always say the same thing to me, “your hair is thin, but you have a lot of it!” Ok, thanks for that. But what’s the benefit of having a lot of hair if it’s still thin and flat? It takes a lot to get any volume into my skinny blonde strands so when I find a great volumizing product, I must share it.
Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray
Holy hair gods, this stuff pumps up my style instantly! Here’s how I use it: I part my hair to either side, take sections of hair and gently backcomb, then mist Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray on each section. Next, I use a soft bristle brush to smooth out any crazy looking knots and finish with another mist of spray all over. Voila, volume! The texturizing spray smells good, but the scent is strong at first (I always sneeze while spraying lol). Unfortunately gorgeous hair comes at a hefty price tag.
Skincare is the most competitive market in the beauty industry. Between my beauty box subscriptions to Birchbox and TestTube and the gift bags I receive at beauty events, I can’t tell you how many different skincare samples I receive every month. I try to use each sample I get at least once and to be honest, there are few brands that stand out. Visit this website

When I met Jennifer Yen at the NewBeauty store opening at Fred Segal last month, I was instantly drawn to her energetic personality and passion for her skincare line, Pur~Lisse. “Pur~Lisse is French for pure and smooth and allows time-tested Chinese beauty rituals to embrace today’s French skin know-how for an inspirational marriage of nature and science.” Proven Chinese beauty secrets mixed with French sciences? Ok, I’m interested. I picked up the Bright & Beautiful Jet Set Starter Kit to give the line a try and I am very glad that I did! The products are amazing. The Starter Kit includes a cleanser, brightening serum, moisturizer, moisturizer with SPF, and eye serum.
My favorite products from the Starter Kit are the moisturizer, eye serum, and brightening serum. These fab products have graduated from samples to staples for my nightly skincare routine. Here’s a breakdown of my three favorites:
Pur~Lisse Ultra Skin Brightening Serum
Brightening serums always seem to have that astringent effect making my skin feel tight and overly shiny. Thankfully, Pur~Lisse’s brightening serum is different! It feels like a moisturizer but somehow, someway, it actually brightens my skin. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my complexion since I started using it a few weeks ago. According to Pur~Lisse, the magic ingredient is an exclusive peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5. What does that mean, you ask? I don’t know, and I don’t care. Bottom line: It works. Best of all, the Pur~Lisse products are so lightweight that you can apply the moisturizer over the serum without your skin feeling heavy or greasy.
