Ask the Aesthetician….

I get a lot of skin care and beauty questions daily and I thought I should start a new series where you all can ask the questions and I'll do my best to give you the answers!  Some of you may not know but I began my career as an aesthetician.  I specialized in facials but also did waxing and makeup.  I worked for 10 years in spas cultivating a loyal clientele.  I loved working in the beauty industry.   Some skin care lines I've worked with are Murad, Guinot, Aveda, and Dermalogica.  I did … [Read more...]

Perfect your Pout with Tarte!

Finding the perfect lip gloss and lipstick is paramount, am I right?  How many times have you bought a lip gloss and it ends up being the wrong shade, too light, or no staying power?  For me it's often.  To be honest I'm always compromising my "beauty values" for lip products.  I know all the chemicals that are in most lipsticks but yet I still give in when I think I've found just the right color. Let me just say, compromising on quality when it comes to lip products is really a bad idea.  … [Read more...]

Skin Care Spotlight-Marula Oil

I love finding new skin care products that are pure and simple.  Recently I have discovered Marula Oil.  The benefits or this oil are endless.  Read on to find out why your skin could benefit from Marula oil.

bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

A few months ago I purchased Bare Mineral's liquid foundation, bareSkin.  I was SO EXCITED to try a liquid mineral foundation.  I had experimented with turning my mineral make up into a liquid with great results but I had to use oil to make is a liquid.  This proved to be a bit heavy for skin that wasn't dry.  I waited this long to share this review with you all because I really like to try out products before I jump the gun and tell you all to run out and buy something! Bare Mineral's liquid … [Read more...]

Eminence Willow Bark Serum

Last week I reviewed Eminence's Probiotic Cleanser-it's an absolute must if you are battling clogged skin.  Since the cleanser was working so well and I deal with a large amount of blackheads, I decided to give the Willow Bark Serum a go.  My hope was that I would have the same great experience with the serum that I did with the cleanser. The Willow Bark Serum comes in a 1 ounce glass dropper bottle.  It has a gel like consistency and a nice, subtle smell of melaleuca and licorice.  It goes … [Read more...]

The Amazing Aloe Vera Gel

With summer in full swing, my skin care cabinet would not be complete without my bottle of Mountain Rose Herb's Aloe Vera Gel.  I use this big bottle for everything from sunburns to treating IBS discomfort!   Did you know that aloe is fabulous for acne and anti aging? Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating … [Read more...]
