Purina Healthy Lifestyle Motivation

Image
I'm on the road to making healthy changes within my lifestyle such as eating better and exercising a lot more!

I joined a local Curves gym and have lost a total of 87 1/2 pounds within a years time!

Whenever I get the chance to take a walk I grab my iPod, my water bottle and run out the door, especially since it's summer time and we've been having beautiful weather on the daily.

I don't know what it is about walking but I love it, maybe it's the weather or the scenery.

So since I took the step in finding a healthier lifestyle Purina sent me this wonderful package for my family and I to take the challenge together!

Eclos skin care Klout perk

Image
I was sent some skin care products from Eclos skin care through Klout because I am an influencer and taking the challenge to go bare with flawless skin thanks to these wonderful products!
I was sent 3 products total for this perk and will tell you about each one of them!
Skin prep cleanser:
all you do is just squeeze a small amount of the face wash onto finger tips and rub onto your face then wash away with warm water.
Leaves a dry feeling but this was the first time I used it since I've received this perk so bare with me.
Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream:
Facial cream that puts the moisture right back into your skin!
It sort of had a stinging feeling at first but like I said before, it's my first time with these products.
What's great about these products is you can apply them morning and night.
Daily Hydraprimer :
Repairs, protects and primes your skin aka sunscreen!
