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 ;)…


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….
