Spring is here and warmer longer days are fast approaching. Many of us may have been prisoners of long pants, long sleeve shirts and no sunlight.

Detoxify Your Face

Published on by

During these warm summer months, vacations and travel time are a must! It’s easy to lose track of time and routine during these relaxing times and fall off the skincare regimen bandwagon.

Traveling in the heat on long road trips or flights can cause your skin to become stressed and dehydrated. A lack of oxygen will tire your skin and cause a decline in skin energy. There is help for your skin that doesn’t require more then one bottle. Here is a list of some detoxifying masks or treatments that you can use a few times a week and within only a few minutes to get back that pep your skin needs to remain radiant.

  • Dermelect Detoxifying Oxygen Facial Commission-  can be used as a cleanser to clean out the pores, dissolve makeup and other impurities or as deep cleansing, skin-soothing masque to provide a fresher, younger-looking face.
  • Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask- is a fast acting mask that only takes about 5 minutes to re-hydrate and rejuvenate damaged skin.
  • Dr. Brandt Detoxygen Experience- a quick two step system that works synergistically to detoxify, clarify and purify the skin.
  • Peter Thomas Roth Radiance Oxygenating Serum- Can be applied and left on the skin for a boost of oxygen and to soften fine lines or wrinkles

Don’t leave for your scheduled time away without one of these or you can be left looking less than 100% once you arrive at your getaway destination!

Summer-Time Shaving

Published on by

Summer is in full swing and it’s hot, hot, hot. The shorts and mini skirts are making their summer time debut and that means women are looking to get their legs ready for their center stage performance. Shaving can sometimes be a drag, as well as time consuming and sometimes painful. Here are few products to help keep the stubble to a minimum.

Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream- Just because this product is defined as a “Men’s” product, does not mean its hands off for women. This sulfate free, silky gel provides an incredible shaving barrier for both men and women. The natural fruit oils condition and skin and the dimethicone eliminate friction irritation.

Shaveworks The Cool Fix- Apply after shaving or waxing to calm razor burn and prevent ingrown hairs. The instant cooling sensation is soothing and relaxes any form of irritation.

Whish Pomegranate Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel- This fast absorbing gel, repairs any nicks or minor cuts and will help to soothe the skin with natural antiseptics including aloe, sage, and lemon extract. The best part is while using the product over time it will help to slow the hair growth and extend the life time of your smooth silky gams.


Shimmering Tans!

Published on by

We all know that there is no such thing as a healthy tan. And instead of wasting our time soaking up the sun by the pool we’re doing more productive things, like trying out hundreds of different self tanners!

The new NUXE Soleil Prodigieux Self Tanning Body Lotion hit a sweet spot for us, because it’s not only a self tanner that gives a beautiful deep and rich brown tan (no orange!!!)) it also has SHIMMER!  We’re not talking about glitter you’ll find in your daughters playtime makeup though, NUXE utilizes light-reflecting micro-pearls which give the skin a subtle sheen that look absolutely amazing on legs, shoulders, and the décolleté, so skin looks glowy, healthy, and tan!

Because this self-tanner is buildable you can gauge just how tan you want to be (a hint of sun or a full-fledged Bora Bora glow, all up to you), the Frangipani flower extract ensures you’ll smell yummy, too!

Heat and Skin Care

Published on by

When the temperatures begin to rise, we often have concerned customers calling in about their products arriving hot to the touch and how this may or may not affect their efficacy.

All products undergo a heat/cool and freeze/thaw test in order to make it to the consumer market. Products are tested under extreme temperature changes for extended periods of time. These tests ensure that the active ingredients and overall product composition are not compromised even under extreme temperatures.

Rest assured that if your products are exposed to heat while on the delivery truck or left on the porch, the efficacy of the product is not compromised. Simply, bring the product inside and let the product go back to room temperature by storing it in a cool, dark place. Make sure to let the product go back to room temperature before using it. Some products have to be shaken or stirred before use if the ingredients separated. Natural products may also change in color, but the efficacy will remain the same.

We hope this information is helpful, enjoy your summer!
