Nurysh Lyft | 7-Function Anti-Aging Skincare Device

5:27 AM 0 Comments


Our skincare week continues as I try out the Lyft, a 7-function anti-aging device by Nurysh. When I reviewed the Clarisonic device many years ago many of you found my extended reviews helpful. Today's review is similar to that, but I'm trying out this new technology.



Today's video is sponsored by Nurysh. They sent me the Lyft to try and I used it over a period of three weeks, which I catalog in today's post.

I've been generally happy with my skin lately. As I mentioned in yesterday's skincare review, my skin is the best it's ever been! I used to suffer from acne and unevenness, but with the combination of natural skincare, and taking better care of my skin, I am finally seeing great results. Even though I have been pleased with my skin, I was still interested to see if the Lyft could do anything for me.



The Lyft is a really unique device. It has seven different functions and many of the functions can be combined. Here are the functions: Cleanser, deep cleanse, nutrition, nutrition plus, anti-aging, anti-acne, and face lifting. My favorite functions are the cleanser, and the face lifting massage. The Anti-aging function was what I used when treating my dark spot (see below).



Here is more information from their website.

๐ŸŒธ PROFESSIONAL RESULTS AT HOME
Combines 7 technologies into 1 device for a powerful, painless and effective method of stimulating dermal activity that is easy to use.

๐ŸŒธ BREAKTHROUGH BIOWAVE TECHNOLOGY
Helps to penetrate waves deep into your skin to stimulate dermal activity by increasing new collagen production and tightening collagen fibers to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. LYFT tackles your skin concerns from the inside out.

๐ŸŒธ SAFE AND EASY TO USE
Our FDA registered LYFT device is painless and suitable for use on the face, neck and hands. Safe for all skin types and colors. Not intended for medical use or to professionally treat acne.

๐ŸŒธ GALVANIC FUNCTIONS
You can rest assured your skin is the cleanest it can be. The ION+ function will pull dirt and other debris out from deep within your pores while the ION- function pushes active ingredients found in your skin care moisturizers and serums deep into your skin, thereby improving the effectiveness of your favorite products.

๐ŸŒธ RED, BLUE AND GREEN LIGHT THERAPY
Red light: Increases blood circulation to diminish wrinkles, tighten skin and encourage production of new skin cells. Blue light: Diminishes inflammation, kills bacteria from within while preventing future acne breakouts. Green light: Calms and balances the skin tone and encourages even pigment production which will leave the skin even and bright.

What is Galvanic Technology?
Galvanic technology is a microcurrent that works to improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage in the areas it is applied on. Microcurrent originated as a spa treatment for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin.

Most remarkably, I noticed that the Lyft has started to break up a dark spot I've been dealing with on my cheek bone. See the before and after from a period of using the Lyft for three weeks.



All in all, I really enjoy using the Lyft and continue to use it on a regular basis. If you have the budget for it and are interested in at-home anti-aging skin treatments, definitely consider the Lyft.

Have a wonderful weekend. I'll see you tomorrow for a Chic February Assignment check-in :)

Natural Skincare Reviews 2019 | Natural Home with Jennifer

6:23 AM 0 Comments


Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Welcome to the skincare weekend on The Daily Connoisseur. Today, I'm reviewing four different natural skincare lines for you and tomorrow I test out a new technology anti-aging skincare device.



I have been working on this skincare feature for the past few months, trying out different natural skincare lines to share with you. The lines I'm featuring today have different price points, and different features. All are natural, some more than others. Two lines are organic and three of the lines feature anti-aging benefits. I have used each of the lines for a minimum of three weeks straight (I started this back in November) to be able to report my findings to you.

Let's get started. Below, I am sharing pictures and information on the products from the manufacturers. For my opinions and insight, be sure to watch today's video.

From the lightweight cleanser to the French-inspired cleansing water, each product is professionally formulated for reactive skin types. No parabens or sulfates.

Comment of the Week
On Saturday's special video on social media and perfection, Kim from Free to Family wrote, "Hey Friend! I totally feel this way many times. While we like to share tips and help other women, it by no means insinuates that we are perfect. While I like my channel to have quality content and nice videos, I also want people to know I am real too..and a work in progress:) People do create a perfect picture in their mind of us many times based on the 5% we share...we are all NORMAL REAL people! thanks for this message and HERE is to ENJOYING the process!!! xoxo"

Hi Kim, I agree! When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable by showing our real life situations, it can encourage others to know that they aren't alone. It's OK to be normal and real :)

Thank you for joining me for today's interview. I hope you enjoyed it! Be sure to enter the giveaway for Fiona's lovely book.

Rebound with Me February 2019 | Jennifer L. Scott

4:34 AM 4 Comments



Join me for my monthly rebound with me series. My aim was to jump on the rebounder every day in January, but I didn't quite get to that and the month seemed to fly by. I have the goal of dong 5 minutes a day now in February. I hope you enjoy jumping with me in today's video.



This is the rebounder I use for exercise.

And linked here are the jogger pants I'm exercising in, as well as my Daily Connoisseur workout sweatshirt.

I hope you enjoy jumping with me in today's video. I shot this last week and have been jumping to this same routine each night. It's been fun listening to the music and jumping along! I hope you have fun too.

Please note: this video is for entertainment purposes only. Please consult a health professional before embarking on rebounding.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you on Monday for an interview with author, Fiona Ferris!

Extreme Junk Drawer Declutter | Jennifer L. Scott

5:03 AM 3 Comments


Today I have some much needed junk drawer therapy for you. Clear your junk drawer (or drawers as in my case) along with me and let's get organized.



I find that my junk drawers form when I'm tidying quickly and/or trying to keep things out of my children's reach. I can have a bad habit of stuffing items in drawers so they are temporarily out of sight. This has resulted in three junk drawers in our home (or drunk drawers as I keep calling them. I can't talk in today's video! :) My children also are in the habit of putting things in our junk drawers as you will see. I find some crazy things in there!

Today's video is a collaboration with the lovely Robin from Faith and Flour. Robin has such a great YouTube channel! She has a lovely manner about her and her videos are so pleasing to watch. Show Robin some love and check out her video after you watch mine. Make sure you tell her I say hello and subscribe as well!



A few things I mention in my video today:

Rainy Day Classics This is a great classical music album, great for anyone looking for a comprehensive collection.

La Bonne Cuisine de Madame E Saint Ange is a classic French cookbook my parents gave me. I have a great idea for a series surrounding this book. Stay tuned!

I clean my drawers with my e-cloth. I love the e-cloth! It cleans with just water and picks up so much with its tightly woven bristles.

Comment of the Week
From last week's Etiquette post on YouTube, Maria writes, "I see that people unawareness is the same all over the world, people don't enjoy the moment they are living but rather put filters between them and what they are doing: instead of enjoying a concert, a play at the theatre, a conversation with friends or a dinner, they are worried about what is 'other' than that moment. So, they take photos instead of watching, they video instead of listening, they check socials instead of socializing. This is the symptom of lack of self-knowledge and profound ignorance. Is there a cure? I doubt there is...
A hug from Italy, dear Jennifer. I love your books, they are on my bed-side table."


Hi Maria, I really liked your comment and thought it was spot-on. I have noticed this too and it's a shame. Ben and I will be shooting a part 2 to the etiquette video so stay tuned!

Thank you for joining me today. I would love to clear your junk drawers along with me. Let me know how you did!

Chic February Assignment | A New Monthly Challenge | Jennifer L. Scott

6:22 AM 14 Comments


I'm starting a new monthly series called, The Chic Assignment. In this series, I will present four assignments that will better your month. Everything I present will be free and readily accessible to everyone. Let's get started with the month of February.



๐ŸŽตListen to 10. Sonata No. 8 in C minor, op. 13 (Pathรฉtique) I: Grave - Allegro di molto e con brio (BEETHOVEN) Try listening to this masterpiece while cleaning your kitchen or making breakfast. Your daily routine will be elevated to new levels.



๐Ÿ‘—Ten-Item Wardrobe Assess your wardrobe and come up with one item that you absolutely love and one item you realize you could do without. Donate the item that isn't working for you. It's good to get in the habit of constantly assessing your wardrobe in this way.

๐ŸŒฟNatural Home Replace something you use in your home or beauty routine with a more natural product. It can be anything from a cleaning solution to a makeup product. Even if you just switch to cleaning with vinegar, you will sense a shift in the home.

๐Ÿ“– Read (or listen to) one book this month. We can get so busy. Life gets in the way and so do other forms of entertainment. This month, choose a new book and aim to read it within the month. Or listen to an audiobook. You can rent them from the library or if you have an audible subscription, you can easily find something good... Right now I'm reading book 4 in the Amory Ames series, An Act of Villainy.


I hope you will take on this challenge with me presented in today's video.

Comment of the Week
On last week's Blow Dry tutorial, Lauren C. writes on YouTube, "I am a professional hair stylist and you did amazing !! I am going to refer my clients to this ! It is actually a great example blowing out your own hair is very difficult to explain !"

Lauren, I was amazed at your comment. I was completely convinced that I had no idea what I was doing when blow drying my hair (I just knew it worked for me). Thank you for giving me the professional thumbs up!

Thank you for joining me today. I look forward to doing the Chic Assignment with you. Check back with us and let us know how you did!

Natural & Organic Makeup Tutorial | Natural Home with Jennifer

6:45 AM 5 Comments


On today's Natural Home with Jennifer, I'm doing a le no makeup look tutorial using mostly natural and organic makeup. Today, I'm featuring Elina organics makeup.



Elina Organics makeup products are 100% natural, contain Pearl Powder and Zinc Oxide for all day sun protection. Products are free of Talc and other toxic chemicals. They contain very minimal ingredients, making it perfect for even the most sensitive complexion.

The makeup will not accentuate or clog your pores. It will infuse your skin with skin nourishing and protecting amino acids, vitamins, and probiotics. You are able to achieve different levels of coverage from almost translucent to complete concealing.


Here are links to the makeup used:





Sun Shelter tinted moisturizer, crushed pearl powder foundation (I used medium), anti-wrinkle eyeshadow in espresso, anti-wrinkle eyeshadow in raspberry latte, and all natural mascara.



The tinted moisturizer goes on sheer, but still has great coverage. It feels light on the skin and moisturizes well. It is truly the star of the show.

I love the eyeshadows too. They start off as a cream and finish as a powder and last all day. I even used them without applying primer first and they last all day without creasing. The crushed pearl powder foundation works beautifully and I was very pleasantly surprised by the mascara. All in all, this is an excellent organic makeup line.

Elina organics also sent me the natural lash growth serum with peptides, which reportedly aides in lash growth. I haven't used this long enough to comment on whether or not it works. I can come back and let you know.

Other makeup used in the video (not organic)
bareMinerals concealer
Mac mineralize blush in warm soul
bareMinerals lipgloss in hype (I use this over the Elina organics lip color, which is too light for me)

I hope you enjoy the tutorial in today's video. If you have any requests for future Natural Home with Jennifer videos, please let me know. If you have a great natural and organic makeup line you use, please share in the comments. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
