Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck Enchanted, You Can’t Help But Love It!

 Unknown

Although I don’t like to admit it because it’s cliché, I am one of those girls who spends a good chuck of their summer driving to the beach with my friends screaming Taylor Swift lyrics while her music blasts. Taylor Swift’s songs are so peppy and catchy they instantly put you in a better mood and her perfume has the same effect.

Because perfumes are so expensive, I like to have one or two quality scents. The perfume I used before Taylor Swift’s was quite musty and I hated wearing it in the spring/summer. So once I smelt Wonderstruck Enchanted it knew it was time to make it my signature scent for warm weather! The light, sweet and feminine floral scent is simple and perfect for any and every occasion. I wear it to work, I wear it to go out with friends, at the beach and I can even wear it to go shopping. What makes Wonderstruck Enchanted even better is that the perfume is long lasting, I only have to apply it once and I am ready for the day! Wonderstruck Enchanted has been nothing but flawless and versatile. I am not the only one that loves it, I have gotten at least a handful of compliments about how I smell whenever I am wearing the perfume!

In addition, Wonderstruck Enchanted comes it the cutest reddish purple round bottle with four charms attached to it—a flower, a leaf, a crystal, and a bird. I love the way the perfume looks sitting, ready to use, on my vanity table. Overall, Wonderstruck Enchanted perfume is just like a Taylor Swifts song, so catchy, sweet, and beautiful that you can’t help but love it and other people will too—even if they are a Taylor Swift fan!

Of course, something sweet always does the trick. BUT THE CALORIES! You could reach for a fruit, but it doesn’t seem to quite cut it. Put on the kettle and pour yourself a cup of GOOD EARTH CAFFEINE FREE SWEET & SPICY TEA.

24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum from the PRAI Premium Collection !

This was my first opportunity to try a skin care product from “PRAI Beauty, known as one of the most progressive proprietary luxury skin care brands in the world.”

I have a passion for skin care, and am always fascinated by the “story” of a company that has attained “Global” recognition as PRAI has.

Before I share the luxurious 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Serum with you, I’d like to introduce you to the woman behind PRAI Beauty, and mention a little more about the company and their well developed extensive line of products.

Cathy Kangas is the founder of PRAI. This multi dimensional “beauty expert”, is also an “entrepreneur”, “on-air personality”, and creator of “Beauty with a Cause” which helps animal protection causes worldwide.”

Cathy Kangas - Founder of PRAI Beauty

Cathy Kangas – Founder of PRAI Beauty

It was on one of her travels that Cathy discovered what would become the “exclusive” ingredient of the PRAI products called “PRAI Extract”, that through history was reserved for use by the ROYAL household of Thailand.”

The “signature PRAI Extract has numerous benefits and is harvested only every two years.” What really caught my attention about the extract is it’s ability to “improve the skin’s elasticity for smoothing, restorative, and anti-aging skin benefits!”

I couldn’t wait to open up the package when my PRAI 24KT Gold Cavier Wrinkle Repair Serum arrived. The product is beautifully contained in a very nice sized elegant gold pump dispenser, as you can see below!!

PRAI CORE: Anti-Wrinkle Regimen: Wrinkle Repair Creme, 24K Gold Eye Wrinkle Repair Cream, and the product I used, 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

PRAI CORE Anti-Wrinkle Regimen:
Wrinkle Repair Creme, 24K Gold Eye Wrinkle Repair Cream, and the product I received, 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

The information that came with the product said, “the Anti-Wrinkle 24K Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum has “wrinkle-fighting peptides, Linefactor, and luxe 24K Gold that jumpstart the rejuvenation process and supercharge the skin’s luminosity.” It also stated this serum,“is clinically proven to take 10 years off your skin’s appearance.” Wow, now I was really anxious to try it!

I started using the PRAI 24K Wrinkle Repair Serum that evening !

Following the instructions for application, I applied the PRAI to clean and toned skin, avoiding direct contact with my eyes. Over the years, I’ve always applied any products I use on my face and neck in an “up and outward” direction. (Gravity doesn’t need any extra help!)

I like to start under my jaw line and apply up and out around the back of my ears. Remember….always be gentle when working on your face ! I then continue moving upward along the sides of my face, in front of my ears, up to my temples , over my nose working upward between my eyebrows, and finally sweeping up and out around my forehead. It’s very energizing!

The 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Serum glides on your face with ease, has a nice silky feel, and you need to use very little product. You’ll use this product in the morning and evening.

You’re going to notice, after you apply your makeup that your skin will maintain a nice, natural, healthy, yet finished appearance! I like the way it feels, and how my face looks all day long! And, yes….I must say it does impart an “inner” glow to the skin, and I never experienced a flat or dry look on my face throughout the day.

I suggest that you visit their website where you’ll be able to learn more about PRAI’s products, and be able to purchase them, as well: http://www.praibeauty.com

PRAI’s website is very user friendly, and I genuinely appreciate the way it’s categorized! When you arrive on the “Home Page”, “Click” the “SKINCARE” box and you will be taken to a page that allows you to determine your particular skin and product needs from the following options below! It’s very well presented, giving you choices that allow you to zero in on just the product you are looking for, customize products for your needs, or synergistically find a collection that will provide a nice regimen for your skin requirements!

(Quoting the website) You’ll be able to:

• Shop by “CONCERN” : ( EG:What are your skin’s needs?)
• Shop by “BENEFIT” : ( EG:What benefits are you looking to address?
• Shop by –“CATAGORY”: (What type of product are you looking for?
• Shop by –“COLLECTION”: (This is a great way to check out the various collection of products, for example: 24K, PLATINUM, AGELESS, FRAGRANCE, etc.! )
• Shop by – “ALL”: Here you’ll find “all” of PRAI’s terrific products.
I found this an extremely educational website!

“Globally sold in 5 countries and in all 18 countries of the Middle East on the Global Network Channels”, in the USA you can also find PRAI on: HSN: http://www.hsn.com/shop/prai/7115?rid=2950&query=PRAI&isSuggested=True

No PRAI products are ever tested on animals!

No PRAI products are ever tested on animals!

The 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Serum is a terrific wrinkle repair serum from a well developed line of products that compliment each other and target a wonderful range of your specific skin care needs.

As the PRAI packaging says: “The most beautiul skin in the world wears PRAI….”
