new york and surthrival pine pollen capsules!

life in blush review of surthrival's pine pollen capsules

Hello lovelies! Today I’m flying to New York for a girl’s weekend getaway combined with a very special bachelorette party

and in addition to my staple green beauty skincare and makeup products I also like to travel with my “rewilding supplements” –the SurThrival chaga tincture (click here for review), elk antler tincture (click here for review) and pine pollen capsules.

Apart from the excitement I feel collecting my own spring water, pine pollen capsules is one of the few wellness items that can get me equally as jazzed. Why? For one, it’s been the only nutrient that’s helped me maintain hard nails and has noticeably protected me against colds this past winter.

But there’s so much more to pine pollen than that. Revered in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years as a health restorative, longevity tonic, and anti-aging nutrient, the benefits of pine pollen include:

  • nourishing the brain
  • improving metabolism and regulating weight
  • regulating and strengthening the immune system
  • protecting the cardiovascular system and increase superoxide dismutase levels (potent antioxidant) in the heart, blood, liver, and brain
  • enhancing metabolic function of the skin and nourish the hair at its roots

For the next 24 hours you can get 10% off any pine pollen product from SurThrival. Just use the code “PINE10” at checkout. Offer ends 9am EST on June 21st.

Ladies, you can take pine pollen in capsule or powder form, but I would do a HARD reject of the tincture formulation as that’s meant for the gents who need a little help boosting their testosterone levels.

Happy Friday blushers! Don’t forget that tomorrow marks the start of the Summer Solstice which also means that my review of Odacité’s  ‘A Summer in Hossegor’ private collection serum will be up!

  • Fun! I love this, so many benefits! Yay! Good to know about the tincture, too! Have an awesome trip, friend! I used to live in NYC, the only piece of wisdom I want to impart on you is don’t wear sandals while walking around in the city in the summah! Your feet will be covered in black and other general goo that’s unavoidable! Have so much fun at the bachelorette party! :0)

    • haha all I brought were flips so setting aside time to scrub my feet became part of the daily routine. hope you had an awesome weekend! xo
