Mission Skincare Giveaway

Top athletes have joined forces to create athlete-engineered skincare to support the performance of anyone active and to benefit charity at the same time. MISSION Skincare is co-founded, created and tested by tennis superstar Serena Williams, champion golfer Sergio Garcia, professional basketball player Steve Nash, Gold Medal skateboarder Ryan Sheckler, professional soccer player Mia Hamm, Gold Medal snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, Gold Medal swimmer Amanda Beard and professional basketball player Carmelo Anthony. Whether you’re a professional athlete, a weekend warrior or a busy mom on the go, MISSION has you covered.

This revolutionary line is the brainchild of ultra-endurance athlete Charlie Engle, who conceptualized the line after finishing two marathons a day for 111-day run last year across the Sahara Desert. MISSION Skincare also makes an impact off the field by proudly supporting the charities of its top professional athletes, including the World Waterparks Association, The Sheckler Foundation, The Steve Nash Foundation, The Mia Hamm Foundation and H2O Africa, among others. The MISSION Skincare starting lineup features a collection of all-star products to solve your every woe:

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Aquaphor

For the past week, I have been suffering with the WORST COLD EVER. At the apex of my illness, I was going through a box of tissues per day – and my poor nose was paying the ultimate price. Last Thursday, the skin around my nostrils was cracking and bleeding so badly that it was an exercise in agony every time I blew my nose. My schnoz was this close to Michael Jackson territory; I was just waiting for it to fall off altogether.

But then, a package arrived in the mail and I was introduced to my new BFF, Aquaphor. This miracle salve nursed my nose back to health. I told my cold, “You wanna be startin’ somethin’? Bring it…I’ve got Aquaphor!”

I don’t know what took me so long to get acquainted with Aquaphor. But I’ll tell you this: I’ll never be without it.

My Favorite Skin Care Products EVER: Amala

It’s really difficult to admit this, but I used to be very dismissive of natural and organic beauty products – particularly skin care. I used to believe that I needed to patronize products with harsh chemicals to get my problem skin to act like it had some sense. In fact, I would often joke that I didn’t care what damage a product did to my insides, as long as my outsides were looking good.

But I’ve done a complete 180 since discovering Amala, a luxurious collection of skin care and body care products with 100% natural formulas.

Earlier this month, I began testing Amala’s new Purify line – for Earth Day editorial consideration. Purify is a collection of products formulated for oily and acnegenic skin types. The products help control excess oil and shine, clear clogged pores, and prevent and heal blemishes and blackheads with treatments inspired by the healing plants and flowers of Eastern Asia.

So for three weeks, I’ve been religiously using the Purifying Gel Cleanser, Purifying Face Polish, Purifying Toner, and Purifying Moisturizer. And I have to say that besides feeling like I’m indulging in an extravagant spa treatment every time I use these citrus-scented products, my skin hasn’t looked this good in years.

My acne is now very mild, if not practically nonexistent. And my skin is so radiant that many of my friends have remarked about the drastic improvement in my complexion.

While Amala’s Purify price tag isn’t exactly recessionista-friendly (products range from $30 to $136), these products are, in my expert opinion, an absolute steal for the results you’ll see.

I am so enamored with the Purify line that I want to tell every person I meet about this brand. I would gladly be the company’s spokesperson and do commercials – because I feel so strongly about how the treatments have transformed my skin. Hell, I’d do it for free…in exchange for a lifetime supply of this stuff.

Amala is available at Barneys New York and
