Resurfacing Your Skin At Home

Roads aren’t the only things that need periodic resurfacing. If you, like us, have the need to lose a little extra baggage in the form of dead skin cells but find your pocketbook lacking the $100+ for a visit to the dermatologist, StriVectin has created an at-home alternative to making your regenerated skin dreams a reality.

StriVectin LABS, the new line of professional strength treatments from the anti-aging specialists, has come out with an at-home 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel.  This two-step resurfacing treatment is filled with the highest concentration of actives that you can purchase without a prescription (cha-ching!).  For $89 and five minutes of your time, you can walk away with weekly improvements in pore size, skin luminosity, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

We have been using this peel for over a month now and have reached the point of unhealthy obsession. Although at first blush the thought of doing a glycolic peel at home was a bit nerve wracking, the product is easy to use (meaning our visions of turning ourselves into The Hound by using a beauty treatment are slim to not gonna happen) and the effects are immediate. Here’s how it works:

STEP 1: Apply a quarter-sized amount of the Detoxifying Primer Step 1 to the face and leave it on for 1 minute. Do not rinse.
STEP 2: Apply a quarter-sized amount of the Activator Step 2 directly over the Detoxifying Primer and leave on for 3 to 5 minutes. Then remove with a lukewarm towel.

Annnnnd that’s it. Told you it was easy.

**TIP: If you have dry skin, we suggest using this product every two weeks instead of every week and switching off between it and a moisturizing mask so as to avoid dry patches.

We aren’t that good at keeping secrets. When we have good news, be it ours or someone else’s, it’s very rare that we are able to make it very far without spilling the proverbial beans. We know our limits, so when approached us about collaborating on an eyewear line, keeping the whole process under wraps was harder than going back to yoga after a week spent eating hot-dogs and hamburgers at the Texas State Fair. But taking a cue from Nike we just did it, and the time has come to officially share what it is that we have been up to.

The Sorella + TOMBOY KC collection has officially launched, as we speak, on Aside from being easy on the eyes (pun most definitely intended), the collection is inspired by the most daring women we know. Women who are unconventional and complicated, and not just when it comes to fashion. They are inspiring because they dare to be themselves – thoughtful, inventive and more supportive than the entire lingerie department at Saks - and have encouraged us to stay true to who we are even when society tells us that it doesn’t like our sneakers. They are women who celebrate differences and revel in individuality. They are the kind of women we want to be. And presumably, because you are reading this, the kind of woman you want to be.

We can hardly wrap these women up into a single over-worded paragraph, so reducing their essence into a pair of frames took some work. Thanks to the killer team at, the Sorella + TOMBOY KC collection turned into the celebration of confident women we envisioned, with colors and shapes as varied and exciting as the ladies they were named for.

So if you are interested in having four eyes instead of two, we have the eyewear collection for you. Be sure and checkout the Sorella + TOMBOY KC collection on and stay tuned for the unveiling and naming of the 14th frame, a task we’ve put on you. Don’t freak out. Trust us, this isn’t the last you’ve heard about this. In the meantime, drop a note in the comment section and let us know which pair are your favs.
