you get to know this brand. Kovo Essentials! This Clean line uses Probiotics and Cannabinoids to restore clarity and radiance to your skin, while fighting the age and environmental damage. The products have the highest level of potency to work quickly and effectively.  The Cannabidiol Oil is derived from Hemp. It soothes irritation and counteracts free radical damage. The Probiotics balance the flora of the skin and provide antibacterial benefits. I have been using the Illuminating Booster Serum 33. It quickly hydrates my skin and improves the overall appearance. It has 500 mg of Broad Spectrum CBD that gives a dewy glow. It also uses Arnica to stimulate cell turnover and fight inflammation. The serum feels luxurious, and substantial. So up your skincare game with Kovo, and keep it natural, but keep it good…

I’m caring for my skin this spring with 2 cucumber products I can’t get enough of from Azaki Organics. Azaki is a small batch, clean, skincare company with “results driven products”. I use the Cucumber + Niacinamide Toner to calm and soothe skin after cleansing. It helps to prevent environmental damage, and acne. The Niacinaminde helps to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, and uneven tone. Twice a week I use the Cucumber + AHA Jelly Mask. This mask cools and hydrates to revive tired skin. It is designed to exfoliate and soften. It helps to stimulate collagen production as well. So check out Azaki Organics if you want simple, clean, products that do what they promise, can’t say the same for your dates….

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…

new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows. 

3 steps to be exact. I’m crazy about Naisture’s 3 step skincare kits. These are perfect for travel, an overnight, or any evening you want to pamper. I have used both the Exfoliating and Recharging lines. The exfoliating one comes with a cleanser, a peeling pad, and sleeping mask moisturizer.  The cleanser deep cleans, the peeling pad uses AHA’s, Tiger Cica Extract, and Blueberry Extract to remove dead skin and any left over grime. The sleeping mask plumps and nourishes to get you ready for your glow up by morning. The Recharging packet has a cleanser, sheet mask, and moisturizer. The cleanser uses Rice, Grapefruit, and Licorice Extracts. The sheet mask has cactus, Tiger Cica, and Honey Extract. They Hydro Moisturizer deeply moisturizes with Allantoin, Camellia Extract and Pine tree extract. So get with Naisture’s 3 step kits for better skin, by tomorrow.

with some new faves. Lets start with skincare. I’m loving Algenist Skincare’s AA Barrier Serum. This antioxidant rich serum is designed to defent the skin barrier against pollutants and environmental aggressors. It uses Alguronic Acid, Niacinamide, Phloretin, and Ergothioneine. It improves skins appearance and uneveness. I love the texture of it. It feels luxurious and absorbs well.

My new makeup finds start with a cult favorite foundation. I now understand why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is so popular. This 24 hour wear, full coverage, Matte foundation really delivers. It leaves skin looking fresh and flawless yet somehow remains lightweight on the skin. It is heat resistant, and waterproof. There are over 55 shades to choose from.

Taking things to the ever important brows. For the last few years I’ve stuck with NYX’s micro brow pencil. I think it’s better than its expensive competitors. I’m now following it with their Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. It is a clear gel that tames brows and gives a fuller effect. It’s not sticky and stays comfortable all day. So play with some new finds for 2021, I won’t tell last year’s products you’re cheating 😉 

whatever it is let Curology work on the cure. I am extremely happy with my skin at the moment. I have been using Curology’s face wash, customized serum, moisturizer, and body wash. It is a very simple service to use. They develop customizable serums to fight whatever your individual concerns are. The ingredients are medical grade and at your needed level. You just snap a few pics on your cell and answer some questions on their site. They use your pictures, lifestyle, and goals to create exactly what you need. If you are not satisfied with your current routine, I recommend trying this system out. So get a unique formula from Curology, because you’re not like anybody else ;)…

for Moon Juice’s Acid Potion. This resurfacing exfoliator is strong and effective. I found it because I was looking for a less expensive more natural substitute for my P50 addiction. Many people have said it’s comparable if not better. I had to see for myself. The owner created the company becuase she had an auto immune disorder that she was driven to put in remission. “Moon Juice bridges the world of alchemy and biology for functional benefits.” The Acid Potion is designed to be used like a toner. It actively resurfaces skin with 5 acids and many botanicals. It is 25% AHA+BHA. It also has Niacinamide, Tocotrienols, Lactic Acid,Salicylic Acid, and adaptogenic Reishi. I definitely noticed smaller pores and fresher skin.  So get with Moon Juice, and get over ineffective products…

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 ;)…
