Happy Thursday! Whitney and I are so excited today to share a skincare refresh post! About 6-8 weeks ago we started using a new brand of skincare…and let us just say we are in love! We couldn’t wait to share the news with you all and introduce you to TULA! But first we will share some of our skincare history. Over the last 10 years we have really struggled with having oily combo skin that is breakout prone plus has a very red undertone (requiring a calming primer and lots of concealer). Due to history of cystic type breakouts, we have stayed with pretty basic skincare that didn’t provide any anti aging benefits.

But we have noticed the last few years as our kids became toddlers that we really needed to start taking care of our skin and think about anti aging. We had seen recently that some of our blogger friends were trying TULA with great results thanks to a new probiotic technology. TULA reached out to us about trying if for ourselves. After researching about their innovative probiotic technology and numerous benefits, we said yes!  We also were glad to see the line was free of parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, phthalates and propylene glycol. We started with the Discovery Kit that includes the cleanser, hydrating day and night cream, illuminating face serum and revitalizing eye cream, plus the Exfoliating Treatment Mask.

First off, we noticed a difference in skin texture (so soft!)  in just 24 hours. I called Whit the next day to tell her how great my skin was feeling and the redness I typically woke up was almost gone! The next night I tried the exfoliating mask and serum, and of course the revitalizing eye cream. I was so impressed with how much difference I saw in my skin just in the first week. We are now using the full line, and we’ll share those details with you. Keep reading for our full regime and a GIVEAWAY!

Our current TULA regime:

AM: purifying cleanser, hydrating day and night cream, revitalzing eye cream

PM: purifying cleanser, hydrating day and night cream, illuminating face serum, revitalizing eye cream

Plus, we use the exfoliating treatment mask at least 2 times per week.

We truly believe that TULA’s new approach to skin care makes a difference. It offers probiotic ingredients that promote the natural balance of the skin flora, supplying anti-inflammatory nutritive elements to our skin. We were always afraid that anti aging and moisturizing skin care would mean it would clog our pores or break us out. But, THIS LINE has done nothing like that. It’s so exciting to be able to use a full skin care line that is gentle yet effective and you don’t have to worry about breakouts.

We just ordered their NEW Urban Defense Hydrating Mist and can’t wait to try it! The other awesome thing about TULA is that you can sign up your email address to receive a code for 15% off your purchase plus free shipping. They also offer travel sizes which are a great an affordable way to try out new products. The checkout process is fast and easy too.

Last but not least, we have teamed up with TULA to offer one reader a $50 TULA gift card!! This giveaway is on our instagram HERE (live tonight 7/7 at 7pm cst!).

P.S. This is not a sponsored post. We want to thank TULA for sending us products to try. Additional products from this line were purchased by The Double Take Girls, LLC. All opinions are our own. 🙂
