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.

in my skincare. My current daytime moisturizer is so luxurious. I am using Chantecaille’s Flower Harmonizing Cream. It is “a unique and rich assortment of essential oils, botanicals, seaweed, and vitamins nourishes and soothes skin promoting a more youthful looking complexion.” It is designed to prevent loss of moisture. Chantecaille is made in Switzerland. The moisturizer is 95% natural and has a rosewater base. So get with Chantecaille, and buy your own flowers ;)…


better skin. Every 24 hours a new layer of dead skin makes it’s way to the surface says Dr. Dennis Gross. So I tried his Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel. His peels are said to give you smaller looking pores, fewer wrinkles, radiance, and clear and even complexion. The 2 step daily peels are individually wrapped. They are packed with 5 AHA/BHA’s, antioxidants, and vitamins. The peels are designed for daily use, so don’t worry about sensitivity. The steps are simple. Step 1 exfoliate with the packaged cloth. Wait 2 minutes. Then wipe with the 2nd cloth which delivers powerful antioxidants and antiaging actives. Your skin is then prepped to absorb your serums and moisturizers. So reveal better skin with Dr Gross, and reveal some more…

I usually like full coverage, matte, foundation. When I want to go a step less than full, with a little luminosity I use Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation. It is stated to give a right after facial glow, and I think that is the perfect description. It uses light diffusing minerals to brighten and minimize pores while resisting oiliness. It is very lightweight and breathable. It contains lots of good for you ingredients to improve your skins texture and health. So lighten up your foundation this summer with Koh Gen Do, and take something off….

and approved. Not all cbd/hemp products are created equal. Kiskanu is family owned and operated. The family has worked in the cannabis industry for over 20 years. All their products are small batch, sustainable, and hand crafted. They use premium organic whole plant extracts in a base of cold pressed, virgin, organic oils. The line is lab tested and all hemp CBD is sourced within the US. “Rather than isolates or concentrates, we believe in the effectiveness of whole plant medicine to imbue healing qualities into our products that are palpable.” I love the Hemp CBD Face Oil. I use it as a serum, but it can also be used as a makeup remover or body oil. It offers major hydration, and absorbs quickly. Rose Geranium is used to soothe inflammation. The oil is anti-bacterial, antifungal, and loaded with antioxidants. So get with Kiskanu for your face, and while you’re there check out their Hemp CBD Intimacy Oil, because omg….

and so is my foundation. I am using Loreal Paris’s Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Lightweight Foundation. Gone are the days of spending big bucks to get a foundation that looks and feels luxurious. Drug store brands have stepped up in a major way. This one lasts with a Matte finish all day and night. It is breathable, waterproof, transfer resistant, and has spf protection. The coverage says medium to full. I find it so be a healthy looking full coverage. It has oil absorbers to resist sweat and water. It comes in 30 shades, so go get your Infallible coverage, and let it last all night….
Setting_Mist_US_AUS_2
with Morphe Cosmetics Continuous Setting Mist. This is my new go-to for setting spray. It is a continuous air powered spray that delivers even & controlled coverage. This micro-fine mist sets makeup while preventing caking and fading. It is infused with Vitamin E, B5, and fruit extracts. I noticed with pump setting sprays you can get a splatter effect, and a wetness. Morphe is so light and easy to use, you can’t mess it up. So get with Morphe, and don’t stop…

you need better skincare. I have been loving Truth Treatment Systems Retinol Spot Treatment and Omega 6 Healing Cream. The line is created by Benjamin Knight Fuchs, who is a pharmacist, nutritionist, and skin care chemist. The products are designed to work with your skin’s biochemistry. They are made with 100% active and functional ingredients. The Retinol Spot Treatment treats and prevents blemishes, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. It has Retinol, Salicylic Acid, and Vitamins C & E. It can also be used to prevent ingrown hairs and relieve pain from bug bites. I love that it has a rollerball applicator for direct application. I am amazed by the Omega 6 Healing Cream. It regenrates skin’s own healing abilities while speeding recovery from damage. It uses “Premium lipophilic Vitamin C and Omega 6 fats work synergistically to soften and improve skin elasticity, balance, and function. Refines texture, helps smooth scars, lines, and wrinkles.” I used it on a cut and it healed in two days. So get Truth Treatments for your skin concerns, and you won’t have to lie about why you look so good….

to use. A Method skincare by Tina Alster MD. The line uses “scientifically-proven ingredients at optimal concentrations to deliver visible skin improvement. Each product is formulated with ingredients that have an excellent safety profile and are stabilized without sacrificing efficacy.” I have been using the Brighten Eyes eye cream and H2 Biome moisturizer. The eye cream is lightweight and soothing. It softens lines with a non irritating micro-encapsulated all-trans retinol. Rosemary, green tea, and ellagic acid provide protection to the sensitive eye area skin. H2 Biome is a probiotic, hydrating cream that balances skin and reduce inflammation. So get with A Method, it’s Doctor’s orders….
