Celebs Love Tracie Martyn

Published on by

Her line has been featured in Vanity Fair, InStyle, Vogue, teenVogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, and other famous publications. Kate Winslet’s skin glows thanks to her line, so does Susan Sarandon’s and Miranda Kerr’s. Cyndi Lauper is a fan too!

Tracie Martyn has been in the beauty industry since the 80’s, and having worked with models and celebrities as a make-up artist, she figured out exactly what they all wanted in their skincare….pure, natural ingredients and no-fuss products that delivered real results. Using the best anti-aging technologies, while simultaneously creating treatments that are restorative, pampering and holistic, Tracie has pioneered a skin care concept that is both effective and results oriented.

One of the most popular products in the Tracie Martyn line is the Tracie Martyn Enzyme Exfoliant which contains enzymes, botanical skin lighteners and balanced fruit acids. It exfoliates, brightens, lightens, minimizes fine lines as well as wrinkles and pores, revitalizes lackluster complexions, reduces redness, eliminates breakouts, stimulates cell renewal and nourishes the skin. Susan Sarandon has reported to People Magazine that it leaves her skin glowing. This miracle in a jar has been voted ‘best product’ by More Magazine and continues to receive praise.

The Tracie Martyn Firming Serum is the ultimate anti-aging secret. The Powerful antioxidants, exotic botanicals, rejuvenating epidermal growth factors and essential vitamins combine in a synergistic formula aimed to counteract the thinning of skin due to aging and environmental factors. Cyndi Lauper has said to People Magazine “…I use the serum every day, it makes a world of difference, it’s really healing. You see the difference right away.”  The active ingredients in this product lift and firm, strengthen the collagen network, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and hydrate the skin by minimizing water loss and replenishing moisture, calm and soothe, reduce redness and irritation, improve texture, gently lighten hyperpigmentation and brighten lackluster skin.

Tracie Martyn Amla Purifying Cleanser is another star product. Miranda Kerr has reported to Teen Vogue that “The Tracie Martyn Amla Purifying Cleanser deep-cleans without dryness.” Combining breakthrough technology with ancient Ayurvedic knowledge, this extraordinary concentrate gently but efficiently purifies and resurfaces the skin, restoring its youthful vitality and radiance. Unique botanicals, resurfacing enzymes and powerful antioxidants protect, exfoliate and repair the skin while removing residue, dirt, oils and make-up in one single step.

Stars love this line, loves this line, and we’re sure you will too! Treat yourself like a celebrity and try the Tracie Martyn line for yourself.

Detox and Refresh Your Skin with FarmHouse Fresh

Published on by

The warmer weather is here so it’s time to shed your dull winter skin and get it in shape for Spring. We think the FarmHouse Fresh Spendid Dirt Mud Mask will do just the trick. It is a nutrient mud mask with organic pumpkin puree that will refresh and revitalize your dull tired skin. It will address red, sensitive and blotchy skin by helping to calm and soothe while removing impurities. It also contains live yogurt cultures which will help to boost your skin’s radiance and deep cleanse your pores.

If you suffer from redness and broken capillaries, this mask will help to lessen the appearance and even out skin tone, by using Ho Wood Essential Oil to calm the skin and reduce redness. Splendid Dirt is nutrient rich in Llite and Bentonite clays to nourish and purify the skin by deep cleansing pores and improving circulation.

As you use the Splendid Dirt Mud Mask you will notice a mild tingling sensation which is oxygenating the skin and increasing circulation, and as the mask dries your skin will be smooth and skin blotchiness will be reduced.  The Splendid Dirt Mud Mask is ideal for sensitive, dehydrated, fragile or acne prone skin types, and can be used 2-3 times per week for best results.

The Splendid Dirt Mud Mask is 99.6% natural, gluten free and like all FarmHouse Fresh products is paraben and sulfate free. It also would make a perfect gift for anyone who wants to detox and refresh their skin.

Calendula, also known as English Marigold has been used to heal injuries, relieve dry chapped skin, and reduce inflammation for centuries. People in ancient Rome also used it as a fever reducer. In modern day skincare the oil extracted from the flower petal is thought to have detoxifying properties and act as an antiseptic. Calendula treats a variety of skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and even sunburns. Even the most sensitive skin can benefit from its healing properties as it comforts and calms dry irritated skin.

A continual sensitive skin customer favorite is Jurlique Calendula Cream. It’s a soothing, non-greasy cream is rich in Calendula and Witch Hazel to restore and condition delicate skin. It’s ideal for the most sensitive skin and leaves the skin feeling comfortable and refreshed.

If you have more problematic skin, we love Kerstin Florian Clarifying Vita-Marine Masque. It deep cleanses to eliminate impurities, refines and brightens the skin. Key ingredient Calendula calms and soothes redness and reduces inflammation.

Pur~Lisse: Pure & Smooth

Published on by

Pure, smooth, glowing skin is something everyone dreams about, but Pur~Lisse makes gorgeous, resilient skin a reality! Just ask Jennifer Yen, the founder of Pur~Lisse Skincare! As an actress in Hollywood, Jennifer found her skin in less than perfect condition due to hot lights and heavy makeup, and that’s when she set out on a quest to find skincare solutions that soothe and smooth. As an ode to her Chinese heritage, Jennifer incorporated tried and true ingredients and ancient remedies into her renewed formulations. Accordingly, Pur~lisse blends traditional Chinese beauty rituals with today’s French skincare technology so ingredients like blue lotus, white tea, and soy proteins in combination with lupine peptides and seasilk create efficacious, yet gentle formulations.

Pur~Lisse products are free of harsh ingredients like petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, synthetic coloring agents, and proplyne glycols. Pur~Lisse is also paraben-free and free of animal by-products. By keeping the formulas simple and clean there is a minimized risk of unwanted skin irritation, so even the most delicate skin types can use Pur~Lisse.

The Pur~Lisse product selection is impressive, it may seem like a small collection with only six full products and two travel trial kits, but it’s surely mighty as all of the products are suitable for all skin types, all ages, and all concerns. The Pur-Delicate Cleanser is our favorite; its milky formula rinses away makeup and debris and leaves a fresh, clean feeling. Another favorites, Pur-Bright, is great for lightening up stubborn hyper pigmentation without irritation, and our hot-selling Pur-Moist is a delicate hydrating moisturizer that leaves the skin dewy and supple.
