Treat Acne with Silk'n Blue Acne System #SilknProducts #sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Silk’n Blue. I received products to facilitate this review to thank me for participating.

Silk ‘n’ Blue is a unique at home acne treatment device that aims to kill acne bacteria at the source. It destroys the bacteria that causes acne, reduces the appearance of new pimples and helps in the quick healing of existing pimples.

It helps to get rid of mild to moderate acne with the dual technology of natural blue light and dermal heating. The blue light destroys existing acne-causing bacteria residing beneath the skin’s surface.

The Silk ‘n’ Blue has a built-in safeguard to protect your skin, ensuring the skin’s surface will not exceed 41 degrees Celsius or 106 degrees Fahrenheit. Silk ‘n’ Blue Acne Treatment Device can be used in any area with acne problems on the face and body. It’s normal to experience a sensation of warmth during your Blue session. This is completely normal and should disappear within an hour after the session. Some mild redness might also occur, but again this is normal and should fade within an hour or two. Best results can be expected in 3 to 7 weeks after completing the recommended course of treatment.

Silk’n Blue Features

  • Hand-held light device for home treatment of acne 
  • Gentle synergistic power of fractional blue light (same as what is used in dermatologists offices) 
  • Possesses built-in temperature sensor (prevents the device from exceeding 41°C / 106°F)

Silk’n Blue Benefits

  • Starts neutralizing bacteria immediately; prevents future breakouts
  • Fast and visible results – get best results of clear, beautiful skin in 3-7 weeks
  • Clinically proven and dermatologist-recommended
  • Natural, drug free solution (avoid harmful effects of Accutane, avoid drying out skin like some skin cleansers)
  • Dual-energy for bacteria destruction and acne prevention
  • FDA-approved and Health Canada-cleared

How often should you use the Silk’n Blue?

• Use daily for best results (you can use twice a day)
• Place applicator for 3-5 minutes on each spot with acne (full face may take up to 20 minutes) 

The Silk’n Blue should not be treated on:

• Eczema, psoriasis, lesions, open wounds.
• Active infections such as cold sores.
• Abnormal skin conditions.

If your are currently using a physician prescribed AHA, BHA, Reitn-A, topical retinoids or azelaic acid, have been treated with Accutane (isotretinoiin) within the past 6 months or have a history of herpes outbreaks in the area of treatment - please consult a physician before using The Silk’n Blue.

keep momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

The relationship that exists between mothers and daughters is unlike any other. It has many unique moments, memories, and yes, even challenges along the way. The relationship dynamic can be even trickier when your daughter is in those tween-age years. What can be even more difficult is when some people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub,, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

Don’t miss Holly’s message about the keep momming initiative, and be sure to check out the website at
