What would you do if your dermatologist suggested that you put Crisco on a burn?  One woman, Gloria Vanderlaan, reacted to that recommendation by turning to a more scientific approach towards healing.  As a result, TriDerma was born.  Initially, the line of specialized skin products was sold to doctors, estheticians, plastic surgeons, and medical supply stores; today, TriDerma has more than one hundred products and incorporates only Certified Genuine Virgin Organic Aloe, moisturizers, and other carefully selected botanicals (and it doesn’t include steroids, cortisone, or dangerous parabens).  Two of TriDerma’s hero skincare products are the Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum and Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Scrub.  The creamy Serum does more than fill pores, it helps visibly reduce their appearance and other imperfections while controlling excess oil production.  The anti-aging Scrub contains Precision Diamond Crystal Complex™ that gently exfoliates dead skin cells to help stimulate collagen, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  This duo is the one-two punch your skin has been looking for!

TriDerma is offering thirty Subscribers an opportunity to win its Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum and Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Scrub (retail $49.98), simply by liking them on Facebook and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks.




We enlisted the help of the astrologer Zoe Moon to find out what we all have in store for September of 2014.

We enter this fall month with Virgo New Moon energy still propelling us forward in areas of work, organizing, health, animals, services, co-workers, and people we hire. This energy is strong up until the 8th.  Mercury moves into Libra on the 2nd and will tour her through the 27th of September so our talks, agreements, meetings, writing, sales, short trips, and decisions will strongly focus on partners, agents, attorneys, specialists, clients, opponents, and other key relationships. We will also engage more over balance, justice and higher esthetics.

Venus is moving into Virgo on the 5th and will tour here through the 29th, lending her charms to those work, health, paperwork, pets, co-workers, and hired help situations. This is a great time for adding some beauty to your world in these areas, for women showing up who can help you, for aiming part of what you are doing at women, and for seeing the money flow and love expressing through your efforts here.

Jupiter is making two major aspects this month, one on the 5th as he adjusts to Pluto and one on the 25th when he trines Uranus. Since we are all experiencing his growth potential for the first time in 12 years in the sign of Leo and our creative projects, fun, with our kids, or over true love, these dates are important because they will move you along in the direction you need to go. Jupiter inconjunt Pluto on the 5th is about making adjustments over goals, career, authority figures, and any controlling interests, financially shared situations, mortality issues, sexual needs, divorce proceedings, or third party matters. Jupiter’s trine to Uranus on the 25th is about jumping into something and freeing yourself to be who you are, express your originality, try something different, and shake things up.

Last week we followed the Japanese trend of misting our faces on-the-go with the imiy Handy Mist.  Several Undercover Agents asked us to source a similar device that is readily available in the US.  After some comparison (and a few failed attempts), we discovered the sleek and elegant Facial Nano Steamer, from  Measurable Difference.  This clever product helped transform our dull, dry complexion into glowing, healthy-looking skin in fewer than thirty seconds.  Utilizing 140 kHz technology, water is broken down into an ultra-fine, silky, mist that can be instantly absorbed, plumping the skin, minimizing pores, and reducing the appearance of fine lines.  We have been using it twice daily (first to set our makeup and later to freshen it up), and are thrilled with our dewier, more radiant appearance!

The Facial Nano Steamer retails for $100.  However, Measurable Difference is offering a limited number of Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SCORE (please read carefully before proceeding) it.  Shipping to valid US mailing addresses is anticipated within 4 weeks of this SCORE ALERT.  This SCORE is limited to two units per mailing address.  **We’re sorry but this SCORE is completely fulfilled.
