Refresh-2

It’s small batch when it comes to Lone Star Botanicals. They ethically source the best herbs and spices from Organic farms all over the world. I have gotten into using their face scrubs and face masks this winter, and had great results. The Refresh Hydrating Green Tea Face Scrub exfoliates, hydrates, and brightens your skin. Soothe Moisturizing Shea Butter Pumice face Scrub moisturizes and smooths skin. I rarely like scrubs, because I find them to be too harsh. These allowed for a gentle, yet effective cleaning. I like all their Masks, though the Renew Rejuvenating Herbal Clay Mask was my favorite. It gave me a brighter, more awake looking complexion. So try out Lone Star botanicals, and get big results with just a little….

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….

accomplish more. That is the motto behind Swell Skin. They believe “a powerful foundation is necessary for powerful products. Our foundation relies on the abundance of antioxidants and omega fatty acids found in the powerful, rejuvenating oil of the sea buckthorn plant.”  Head over to their site to read about the many reasons why they love this powerful ingredient. My favorite products in the line are the Tight & Toned Radiant Pore Exfoliating Toner and the Dry Body Oil Moisturizer. The Toner uses Green Tea, Aloe, Chamomile, and Glycolic Acid to smooth, and reduce the appearance of pores. It exfoliates and brightens while balances skin’s PH. The Dry Body Oil hydrates and nourishes while absorbing fast. It has a fresh scent and is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. So do less, and relax into beautiful skin…

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…

be one, use it, learn about it. Beauty and Pinups is an inspiring brand that gives results, while bettering the world. They are all about “beauty with a purpose”. They use gentle, nourishing ingredients, and are free of sulfates, parabens and phthalates. A portion of all sales supports Best Buddies. I truly love the whole line, I will talk here about my favorite. Valor Superfine Hairspray is a must have. It’s similar to Loreal’s Elenett in regards to results and texture, but it smells much better. It’s made with Green Tea and Ginko Biloba Extracts. It’s lightweight and allows for layering with no buildup. There is a mild sunscreen to protect color. The pinup on the bottle is Gina Elise. She is the founder of Pin-Ups for Vets, a group dedicated to boosting veterans’ healthcare, hospitals and personal well-being. They are donating a portion of the proceeds of this product right back to her organization. So do something good for your hair, well you do good for the world…..

my sheet masks that is. I love these masks for many reasons. Not only do they provide major nutrients and hydration, their is no cleanup. You just peel it off your face and tap in the remaining product. They stick very well, so you can go about your business with whatever you’re doing around the house, no need to lay down. I love Talika’s Bio Enzymes Mask. It uses alpine herbs, sodium hyaluronate and hydrophilic sugars.

I’m also loving eco-conscious sheet masks from BioRepublic. They have witch hazel,water, licorice root, star anise, green tea extract and vitamin E, to deliver the necessities the skin needs to maintain a natural glow. The cucumber breeze is my favorite, because I love the smell. So get in my sheets, you’ll thank me….

but your foundation can be with Geri G. First apply the Transceutical Canvas. This aloe vera based cream conditions skin, hydrates, and creates a smooth canvas for makeup. It bonds with cosmetics to make them blend into the skin, for an immediate natural glowing finish. Next apply the Innocent foundation with the Canvas brush. It is best to gently buff the foundation on vs painting. It is water based and combines squalen oil, green tea, and white tea. It is weightless and very natural looking. It leaves you with a glowy look vs matte. So get flawless with Geri G, and fake that innocence…
