We are smack dab in the middle of winter and boy oh boy is my body really taking a beating. I’m just thankful and lucky that I have a list of favorite products that are my go-to when we’re experiencing dry, cold weather. Lately, I’ve noticed a decrease in the plumpness of my lips, whether it be the cold or just the fact that I’m getting older. So, I’m glad that the PMD Kiss is to the rescue.
Over the last month and a half (maybe longer), I’ve been using the PMD Kiss device. The PMD Kiss is a smart anti-aging lip plumping treatment that uses pulsating vacuum technology to create a fuller appearance of lip volume. It also restores the youthfulness to your lips and with daily use, the PMD Kiss will boost collagen and create a long-lasting plumped result.
This week I’ll be turning 38 and I noticed that after having my children, my very plump lips (at one time) have shrunk a bit. Having worked for a plastic surgeon, I wasn’t too keen on lip injections or fillers and when I was given the opportunity to try another PMD product (a brand I know and love), I couldn’t have been more excited. As we age, our lips basically lose volume and color (I’ve definitely lost a lot of pigmentation in my lips) and we begin to see more lip lines and wrinkles. The PMD Kiss is to the rescue to help us get youthful, sexy lips.
“I love that my lips look plumper, have fewer wrinkles and lines and have more of its original color to them while still looking natural and sexy.”
The PMD Kiss safely plumps your lips in a matter of minutes and provides you with visible results that literally last for hours. With continued use (I use mine daily), the PMD Kiss helps to boosts your collagen in the lips which increases the look of fullness and fades the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles. I especially love that it revitalizes my natural lip color that I’ve lost over the years.
After the first time using the PMD Kiss, I noticed immediately the change in my natural lip. My lips felt softer and looked much plumper than before but the process itself didn’t leave my lips bruised. Furthermore, it was basically pain-free to do. Simply apply the device to the six sections of your lip (a guideline/diagram is included in your package) and use daily or as needed. Just a minute or two of time each day and you will notice results that are definitely lasting.
How to use: Apply PMD Kiss Smart Lip Plumping Serum onto your clean, dry lips. Power on the PMD Kiss and place the plumping tip firmly and directly onto your lip making sure you are creating a tight seal for suction. Use the PMD in the 6 sections outlined in the diagram (you’ll hear and feel the device working). Allow PMD Kiss to pulse 15-20 times on each section of your lips.
In the package, you will receive the following products: The PMD Kiss and a Smart Lip Plumping Serum. A total retail value of $139.00 for both.

After using this device and serum for more than a month, I am absolutely loving it and it has easily become one of my favorite skincare devices. I love that my lips look plumper, have fewer wrinkles and lines and have more of its original color to them while still looking natural and sexy. If there is anything I’m not a fan of, it’s overdone or fake lips and this product definitely gives me the right amount of lip love.

Can you believe it’s already been a month since I’ve started using the PMD Personal Microderm Device again? I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by but I’m extremely excited to share my results with all of you. After using this device for a month (4 weeks), I am definitely looking forward to sharing with all of you how it’s worked for me.
Read all about my initial thoughts and first impressions of the PMD here.
The PMD Personal Microderm is an at-home device that allows you to bring the same type of results as that from a professional treatment, at the tip of your fingertips and comfort of your own home. PMD’s patented spinning discs are embedded with aluminum oxide crystals that exfoliate the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The device basically gives you the benefits of a professional treatment, while helping to prep your skin to take in all the skin care that we love to treat ourselves with. After the process of treating your skin with the PMD, your skin is left feeling… well, great! Firmer, fresher and radiant!
I started off using the PMD with the gray disk (read all about the discs here) for the first few tries but then moved my way up to the blue disk (for sensitive skin) as my use progressed. Since I have naturally sensitive skin, I continued to use the blue discs and probably will stick with that when using this device. Using the PMD is easy and while it may take a little practice (especially in how you hold it and run it against your skin), once you get the hang of it, it will be an easy step in your beauty regimen. After using the PMD I applied the PMD Recovery Collagen Sheet Masks as apart of my treatment. These masks help to replenish and hydrate my skin while soothing it. It’s perfect as part of the process because my dry sensitive skin needs the extra moisture.
Now, let’s talk about results after a month of using the PMD. PMD encourages that you’ll see maximum results after 8-12 weeks of use and I’ve only been using it for 4 weeks, so please keep that in mind when reading. As you can see from my before photo, I had uneven skin tone throughout my face and discoloration in various areas.
In the photo below, I share with you my after results. Of course, as I always say – Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can see where my skin is starting to really brighten and look much fresher than before. I also noticed that some of my fine lines are diminishing and not as prominent as they were prior to using the PMD Personal Microderm. My pores on my cheeks are also softer and not as defined and my sun spots (while still visible) are not as noticeable. Since I do not really use foundation, it’s important for my skin to look good.
Because of my sensitive skin, I used the PMD at its bare minimum required so that I would not have an eczema flare-up. But immediately after using the device for just a week, I noticed that my skin had already started to get brighter and felt much smoother. The discolored areas on my face had begun to lighten dramatically and my skin looks much more vibrant than the dull it had looked before. My nose had looked darker in comparison to other parts of my skin before using PMD because I got a lot of sun this summer, but the PMD helped in to even the skin tone in most of the places I had used it. I would have liked to really lighten my acne scars on and near my cheekbones but while it did not get rid of it completely, it did lighten how drastic they appeared on my face.
I’m excited to use the PMD on a long-term basis and compare my photographs to see the difference. I look forward to using the PMD Personal Microderm Device and can’t wait to see how it improves my skin overall. After using it just a month, I did notice a measurable difference in how my skin looks and feels. Since I’m creeping up on my 40s, I am excited to see how it will continue to help me.

When it comes to skincare products and gadgets, I’m always super duper excited to try them and share my thoughts with you. If you’ve been a long time follower of my original YouTube channel, you may have watched videos where I have raved about my first PMD device (about 8 to 10 years ago). Since it’s been a few years since I’ve used the PMD Personal Microderm, I was extremely excited to get the opportunity to share my thoughts with all of you once again. Microdermabrasion in the comforts of your own home? I say… YES! I was given the chance to try out the PMD and I can’t wait to share my results with all of you.
So, this will be a two-part sponsored post. For today, I’ll be sharing my first impressions (well sort of, since I’ve used this before) and the details on the product itself. I’ll also be sharing my before photo. In the second post, you’ll get my experience after using the product for a month.
I’ve used this particular device twice already (prior to writing this for you) so I’m excited to share my results with you in about 30 days or so.
Let’s talk about what Microdermabrasion. What is Microdermabrasion? Basically, Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Once the process is done, you reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. The PMD Personal Microderm is an at-home skincare tool that provides the same brilliant results as a professional, in-office treatment, but without the price tag. The PMD combines a Patented Spinning Disc technology with Perfectly Calibrated Vacuum Suction to leave the skin looking fresh and radiant. The claim is that you can see results after your 1st session and maximum results will be seen after 8-12 weekly sessions.
PMD’s patented spinning discs are embedded with aluminum oxide crystals that exfoliate the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The calibrated vacuum suction works by increasing circulation and triggering the skin’s natural healing process, which helps to boost collagen and elastin. After the entire process of treating your skin with PMD, your skin is left feeling firmer, looking fresh and radiant and basically glowing.

The Classic PMD utilizes one speed and comes with classic caps for the face and body. The treatment takes just 3 minutes to do and one treatment each week is all that is needed. I definitely recommend watching the video tutorial on how to use the device prior to using it for the first time.
Cleanse and dry your skin thoroughly
Start with the training disc (white disc). Practice on your leg or arm before using it on your face
Pull the skin tight to help the device to glide smoothly over the skin
Do not apply any pressure and do not stop or remain in one area. Move the device quickly across the skin in an upward motion.
Make sure you only do one pass per area
Following treatment, apply toner and moisturizer
Wash the cap and filter after each use.
There are different levels of discs and colors for each level so you know the intensity you are applying to your skin.
White Disc – Ultra Sensitive (training disc)
Grey Disc – Very Sensitive
Blue Disc – Sensitive
Green Disc – Moderate
Each disc will last 3-4 uses and most treatments last about three to five minutes. Everyone’s skin is different and some sensitive skin types may never need to increase their exfoliation level by moving to a different disc color. Some may have more coarse skin and may need to move to a higher disc level. Ultimately, the disc color used depends on your treatment goals and skin sensitivity overall. There are other discs available on the PMD website that can be used for Body, etc. You can check those out here.
It’s been a few years since I’ve used a PMD on my face. I stopped using it because my original device went missing. But, I’ve already started using this cute pink one now and have had two treatments. I’ve included my “before” photo below. This photo was taken prior to any treatments using this PMD unit.
As you can see from the photo above, I have uneven skin tone, discoloration in certain areas and a bit of scarring from old acne breakouts. I’m 37 years old and while I don’t have many wrinkles, my PCOS has contributed to taken a toll on my skin the last year. I’m excited to share with all of you my after photos in mid-November.
Definitely, check out PMD’s FAQs and get a look at some of the before and after photos on their website. I have been a huge fan of PMD over the years and it’s great to see that this company has continued to help many people with their skin issues. I’m excited to share my results with all of you!

Oh – when it comes to skin care devices and products that state heavy claims on how they can tone my skin, make it look youthful and help with anti-aging, I’m always excited to try them out. I’m said it many times before, but I’m almost 40 (36 to be exact) and over the years I have always believed that proper skin care is the best way to prevent the signs of aging. So, when I read about and watch late night commercials (yes, I am a late night commercial person), I tend to really gravitate to the products to see if they really are what they claim. While up late a few months ago, I came across an infomercial regarding the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System. To say I was interested to not only test it out but to see how it worked on my skin, was an understatement, I was definitely intrigued. I was absolutely ecstatic when the PR Company for Conture reached out to me a few days later asking me to review and test out their product and I couldn’t wait till it arrived so I could test it out for myself.
Now, if you’ve been on my site before – you know that when it comes to skin care, I have tried my fair share of products, gadgets and everything in between… you name it – I have probably tried it. But, this is the first of its kind. The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System is the first of its kind type of Anti-Aging device that brings the Professional Medical Spa technology to consumers in a safe, painless and affordable way. Having worked in the plastic surgery industry and seeing these types of treatments first hand, I was very excited to see how it would live up to its claims and I couldn’t wait to try out the system for myself.
So what is the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System?
It’s an anti-aging device (as I stated earilier) that you can use in the comforts of your own home. It’s a non-invasive revolutionary preventative and anti-aging cosmetic device that you can use at home. The Conture utilizes a unique combination of Ultra-Low Sonic Vibrations combined with Isometric Copressions (Vacuum) to safely, gently and easily stimulate the skin. It’s similar to Pro Services that can cost hundreds or more per visit and that require 10 visits or more to sometimes see results.
The Conture is clinically shown to dramatically increase skin radiance, smoothness, lift and texture while decreasing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles. In just one use you can immediately see noticeable results and you literally only need to use the unit for about 2 minutes per treatment. When I first heard all of this information, I’ll be honest, I didn’t think that it would even be possible, let alone effective enough to see results in one treatment without hurting my already sensitive skin.
So, what do I think about this product?
Since I’ve given you the break down on the claims for the Conture, after using this unit for about 2 weeks, here’s what I think. First of all, let me tell you what I thought after the first use. I didn’t expect to see results at all after the first session of using Conture, but I did and I really was pleased with what I saw. I don’t really have much wrinkles, but do have lines from weight loss and weight gain as well as some minor crows feed and fine lines and wrinkles that are from smiling, wearing my glasses and rubbing my eyes from my allergies. All of which I have been able to keep under control with daily use of serums and my favorite skin care. After the first use of using Conture, I noticed that my smile lines had decreased quite a bit. The Conture literally added life to them, with it’s vacuum like suction I felt it plumped those lines up so that it was not as visible as it had been prior to the treatment.
“The system utilizes a unique combination of isometric compression, which gently lifts and releases targeted skin areas, and low sonic frequency vibrations which together safely, and gentle stimulate and tone dull, aged looking skin. The device safely stimulates the skin from a sluggish state by gently lifting and releasing targeted skin zones using a gentle vacuum, resulting in clinically visible enhancements to skin appearance, absorption, and overall skin health.”
After using the unit on my forehead, I also noticed that the fine lines on my forehead seemed like they were plumped up and not as noticeable too. It is such a relief when you are using a product and notice just a few minutes later how much it has made a difference. My jaw line also seemed to have shrunk some, or at least looked like I was not as chunky in that area as I had been before I had started the treatment. All of these results I am talking about happened within a 2-3 minute time period and I noticed immediately after the treatment using the Conture for the first time.
I continued using the product 2x a day for the last two weeks. I noticed over the course of the last two weeks how the texture of my face had improved. My skin looks brighter, is much more even in tone and feels smoother than before. It feels like my skin is much more accepting to my skin care products, and skin absorption is better than it had been in a long time. Since I naturally have dry skin, I layer on several types of skin care products as a part of my daily regimen and I started noticing that the absorption of the products was taking longer than it normally did to drink up my serums. With the first week and into the second week of using the Conture, I noticed my absorption of my skin care serums was quick and fast… like my skin was drinking up the greatness once again.

Some cons of using this product are not necessarily cons because my skin tends to freak out some at the beginning of a new skin care add on. I noticed a few days after using the Conture on my face that I started breaking out. But do not fear, because my skin has done this each and every time I have tried something new. I tend to consider it my… “skin has to get worst before it gets better phase” and while it’s a con now, I am already noticing some improvement in the whole treatment process. I break out a lot when I start new treatments and it can proceed well into a month before I notice that my skin is actually just cleansing itself. It happens with masques or new products, so I do not contest that it has to do with the product itself. After just two short weeks, I noticed such a huge difference in how my skin feels – I know that the Conture is working for my skin.
My Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System included: The Conture Device, Kinetic Treatment Serum, AM Ignition Lotion, PM Recovery Creme and US Charging Cord and Adapter. I have been using the Kinetic Treatment Serum prior to each Conture treatment to help prep my skin and to allow the device to glide across my skin easily. I use the AM Ignition Lotion in the morning after my Conture treatment along with my morning AM skin care regimen and serums and then the PM Recovery Creme in the evening after the Conture treatment along with my PM skin care regimen. I use different products in the AM and PM already. My skin care products I currently use and have been using seem to work okay with those that came with my Conture.
I have been using the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System on the Mild setting for my face the first week but have since started using the “Face” setting after using the system for a week. I haven’t had any sensitivity issues at all using this product which is a huge plus. Being Eczema prone and having such sensitive skin, I have had so many products cause flare ups and I haven’t had any problems with the Conture. What I love the most is that Conture is developed by a brand that I have know and love – Luminess Air. Luminess Air is a brand I have used for years and as a makeup artist, it is one I have stocked in my kit to do bridal work and shows for years on clients. I knew that the Luminess Air brand was a favorite, but now after trying Conture for 2 short weeks, I have found that they are great at taking care of my skin.
This post is just my first impressions. In about 3 weeks I’ll be sharing with you my full review after using this product for just over a month. You’ll be seeing before and after pictures as well as a full review on the product and whether or not it lived up to the hype over the month. Overall – having used this product for two weeks, I can honestly say – it’s wonderful and I love it so much I’m looking into getting one for my mom. She’s a skin care lover like myself and I know she’ll just love it.
Want to see before and after photos? Come back in a month for a full reveal and review!
Have you tried this product before? If not, are you like me and stay up late to watch infomercials and have seen the Conture featured? Stay tuned in the next few weeks for a full review with before and after photos of my results after using the Conture for just a month.
If you asked me 5 years ago “Are you happy with where your skin is?” I would probably answer you with a big fat NO! Five years ago I used foundation and concealer to hide my imperfections and having turned 30 then, my skin was freaking out on me. I found out later that I had severe Eczema and that after having my twins, my skin needed a little more finesse. It’s funny when I think back at everything I had been doing to my poor face then. I had just had my twins and my face really did have it’s fair share of break outs. After changing up my skin care routine, adding and removing certain products from my skin care regimen and knowing what works and what doesn’t, my skin has come a VERY long way. Recently I have added the Foreo Luna to my cleansing arsenal. I have tried many different cleansing brushes in the past, (some were fails, some worked well, some were too harsh), I had hoped the Luna would be a product I would love and let me tell you, it is!
Cleansing my skin has always been an important part of who I am and my entire skin routine, but I didn’t realize that harsh products both for cleansing, treating and even tools were causing my skin to have my Eczema flare ups. Having added the Foreo Luna to my cleansing regimen, I have found that it will now be a product I can’t live without. I have been using this product consistently for several weeks and have found that even with my severely sensitive skin – I’ve been able to get great results from this tool. Like any other cleansing tool, I’m unable to use it daily for I will get a reaction, but I find that I can use it every other day unlike some of my favorite cleansing brushes like the Soniclear, which I am only able to use once a week.
The LUNA is a cleansing and anti-aging device with a breakthrough approach to skin care. It’s T-Sonic pulsations are sent through the ultra-soft and smooth silicone touch points to deeply clean, but gently remove dirt, oil and makeup residue. After one use I immediately noticed my skin looked radiant and brighter and my skin looked healthier. After one use, I fell in love with this product instantly. The unit I have is specifically designed for Sensitive / Normal skin however, there are options available for Combination skin and Ultra Sensitive skin types too.
The Luna has soft “rounded” silicone touch points which mean there are no abrasive surfaces on the unit resulting in a gentler clean then sharp oscillating brushes that you get from your standard facial cleansing devices. The ultra-hygienic silicone design is nonporous to resist bacteria buildup making it up to 35x more hygienic than bristled brushes and since the Luna’s silicone brushes are so durable, they don’t require replacing. While the Luna is definitely an investment in your skin, it will also save you money in the long run in having to purchase replacement heads as you would for the traditional facial-cleansing brushes.
I use my Foreo Luna for just two minutes at night when cleansing – every other day (since my skin is too sensitive to use daily). Since I have sensitive skin, I also use my very gentle Cetaphil cleanser as it cleanses gently with the unit and makes my cleaning experience feel like I’m getting a facial. Using the product is so simple – simply apply your cleanser, wet your Luna and then turn it on and use it on your face. After I cleansed (1 minute), I then use the back side of the unit (the Anti-Aging mode) and apply to the wrinkle-prone areas that I would normally treat with wrinkle creams. In just a matter of a few days I noticed a dramatic change in how bright and radiant my skin looked.
Besides the awesome gentle cleansing I get from this unit, I love how easy it is to not only use but charge. This cool little device is charged once and will last up to 450 uses for each full charge. The Luna is waterproof, which means I can use it in the shower and not worry about a thing and like I mentioned previously you don’t have to change out a brush head like you would other products. While I do enjoy my Soniclear – that is one thing I didn’t like and the Luna is much gentler on my skin than any brush I have used on my face. You have several different levels of power on the device so you can adjust the settings to fit your sensitivities and the unit has a built in light in the base that will illuminate to let you know when to move around on your face to get the best possible clean in the time allotted. This is perfect for those on the go or moms like me who are busy and have their hands full with mommy stuff. Just two minutes a day (two minutes every other day for me) and you have a great cleanse and an anti-aging regimen all in one.
I have spent hundreds of dollars on skin care products and tools over the years and I’m glad to have the Foreo Luna in my life. It has definitely made waves of positive changes for me and my skin.
