DIY or BUY Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

This week I posted about infusing oil with coffee to make an effective ingredient for fading dark circles and de-puffing eyes as well as reducing the appearance of cellulite.  Today I've prepared a recipe that I adapted from 100% Pure's Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream.  First let me say, I haven't tried this actual eye cream but I believe, according to what I know of this company and the ingredients, that it's a great eye cream and is very reasonably priced so if you're not interested in making … [Read more...]

Create An At Home Facial

I used to be a facialist and prided myself on creating an "experience" for my clients.  It was important for me to not only improve the client's skin-I also wanted to thoroughly relax them.  My facials consisted of lots of steam, massage, exfoliation and nourishment with little to no extractions.  Since I no longer work at a spa, and I'm such a DIYer, an at-home spa is the only way to go!  I thought it might be fun to give you an inside look from a former aethetician and learn how to re-create a … [Read more...]
