The Body Shop’s Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask is a great multitasker for your skincare shelf. You can use it as a face wash/scrub, or a mask.  It is designed to help with blemishes and excess oil. I used it as a mask and was surprised by how fresh my skin felt. It felt like I had a deep cleaning in 5 minutes. My pores were clean and my skin had a toned glow. Their organic tea tree oil is Community Trade from Kukoka Ardhini. So clean and mask your skin with this Body Shop treat, and check out the rest of their tea tree line.

for clean and soft skin. I’m on my third bottle of Formula 10.0.6 Smooth Me Over Moisturizing Body Wash in Grapefruit and Coconut. It smells amazing, and gives major lather. It is designed to not strip skin of natural moisture. The Grapefruit nourishes while the tropical coconut hydrates. This is from a great small company that has been in business for 87 years. It’s a very affordable line. I get it at Ulta, and you can shop their website as well. So get with Formula 10.0.6. and maybe share it with someone else ;)….

about Buzios? Buzios skincare is a Brazilian line that is all about the glow. They believe in a 2 step skincare ritual for plumped dewy akin. Step 1 is a cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating cream. Step 2 is a hydrating, moisturizing all over serum.  I have been using their cleanser, Bare Skin. For me I like it as my first step in my double cleanse routine. Therefore I use it a bit differently than directed. It has natural retinol, antioxidants, and 5 amazonian super foods in it. I love how it removes dirt and makeup while leaving my skin enriched. You can remove it with a cotton pad or damp microfiber towel. So get that Brazilian beauty glow, and go bare….

my new body scrub from Olive+M. “Olive+M was created from the belief what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body.” It is a clean beauty line, where every ingredient used plays a role in the efficacy of it. The plant based oils in their formulas work to balance out oil production without stripping skin of its protective barrier. Olive oil resembles the molecular makeup of our body’s natural oils therefore it penetrates quickly and to the deepest level. The Body Polish also uses mineral rich sea salt to detoxify and exfoliate. It has a subtle scent of sweet orange and geranium. So get you Olive on with Olive+M and be healthy inside and out…

loofah. I’ve upgraded my shower routine with my Bathorium Konjac Bamboo Charcoal Body Sponge. This sponge is so much more luxurious and exfoliating then the loofah’s I’ve been using in the past. It uses hand harvested Asian Konjac root which is naturally micro-antibacterial. So unlike a loofa it naturally fights off bacteria. The Bamboo charcoal helps draw out impurities. Simply add your body wash and luxuriate in major lather. I love that it comes on a string so you can hang it to dry. So upgrade your shower time with Bathorium, and keep it clean …. for now…

Pai Skincare is made in London and my Miami skin can not get enough of it! The line is created for sensitive skin, but benefits all types. Their Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil is quickly becoming one of my favorite oil cleansers. It removes all makeup, with no eye irritation. I love that when you rinse it off there is no oil residue left on the skin. I follow that with the Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic. It refreshes and rebalances skin and brings it to the correct pH. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Then comes the amazing Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. This oil gives your skin an immediate glow. Andean Rosehip oil is rich in Omegas 3,6,7, & 9. It has antioxidant carotenoids to repair and protect skin. This oil is “packed with twice the regenrative sterols and five times more carotenoids than your average cold pressed rosehip seed oil” So try out Pai products, and don’t be so sensitive ;)….

with Fountain of Truth age defying, clean beauty line. The line uses a Super Bio-Ferment Complex, which is their way of using effective fermented botanical ingredients. Fermented ingredients can be broken down into smaller molecules which can better penetrate the skin. Fountain of Truth was created by Giuliana Rancic after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted a completely clean line that would also effectively fight aging and other skin concerns. I received three of their products from influenster. I love the skin nutrition booster kit. It comes with three facial serums to treat your needs. B: Bright is for an outer glow and uses vitamin c, B: Hydrated is full of hydrating ingredients for softness, and B: Calm is to soothe stressed skin. I also love the Magic Wand Sculpting Eye Roller. It is a weightless eye cream that uses probiotic derived ingredients, caffeine, and green tea. The wand has cooling rollerballs to stimulate circulation. The Fresh Face Foaming cleanser will remove makeup and dirt, while keeping skin soft.  You can find the line at Ulta. So get with Fountain of Truth and let the magic of clean beauty be your truth…
