For my first favorite product from Avon Cosmetics, I must say that I am highly obsessed with their Anew line! A variety of amazing products to keep your skin healthy and long lasting! No matter what age I am, I will still always use anti-aging products to this day…even if I am only in my twenties.
Perfect skin is flawless skin, and it’s better to start early then later right?
My first go-to product that I use every morning and right before bed, Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel.
Steps to perfect flawless skin:
Step 1: Make sure that your face is clear of all oils, make-up and whatever else you may have on. Rinse your face for a few seconds to make sure you are not leaving behind any dirts or oils.
Step 2: Take one peel wipe and in a circular motion, sweep the wipe across your face in circles.
Step 3: When your done sweeping the wipe across your face, then proceed to let your face air dry.
I can be very, very picky about what products I use on my skin. They’re either too oily, too artificial, or contain ingredients I can’t pronounce. Sometimes I just want somebody, somewhere to make skincare products that are all natural, and gentle on my skin! And finally, it seems like the Jacqueline Evans skin care line has answered my calls!
This Australian based skincare line launched in 2008 and is getting very popular. Featured in Italian Vogue and Australian Lifestyle Magazine,Jacqueline Evans is breaking ground fast.
Their products, and philosophy are right up my ally. Their products are founded on naturopathic philosophies, and they use only natural and pure certified organic ingredients. And while other major companies may market themselves as “natural,” Jacqueline Evans truly believes in her philosophies. In fact, her whole line is founded on writings of Hippocrates, the father of medicine…
First Do No Harm – Primum No Nocere
Healing Power of Nature – Vis Mediatrix Naturae
Identify and Treat the Cause – Tolle Causam
Heal the Whole Person – Tolle Totum
Physician as Teacher – Docere
Prevention is the Best Cure
Their cleansers, toners, serums and scrubs contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial colors, fragrances, or perfumes and no pesticide or herbicide residues. If you have ever read the ingredients off of your favorite cosmetic products you’d be shocked as to what actually goes into them.
Jacqueline Evans prides themselves on leaving your skin fresh, bright and glowing with your natural radiance! I highly, highly recommend looking at their products! Here are some of my favorites!
Rooibos Facial Toner – Rosewater, Aloe and Rooibos Tea?! This will definitely soothe and restore skin.
Argan & Rosehip Moisturizing Cream – Suitable for all skin types and contains sandalwood and rosehip seed.
Chamomile & Walnut Scrub – Encourages the absorption of creams, and removes dead skin cells. You had me at Chamomile and Walnut.
Not only do I truly believe in Jacqueline Evan’s philosophy but I also believe that every woman should use skincare products that contain ingredients that are natural and not chemically made. Your skin ages the fastest, and you should want to treat it gently and carefully!
I absolutely love this line of skincare and Jacqueline Evans does a fabulous job of combining products that everyone wants and needs with philosophies that are so valuable and important and lie within everyone.
When I opened my mailbox the other night, I stumbled upon a small package that held the new perfume Foliem!
Being recently introduced to this brand, I never knew what to think on how any of these perfumes were actually going to smell.
I always seem to get somewhat scared when a perfume can seem too strong, or barely even there at all.
The good news is….
I loved every single scent!
If your new to the Foliem brand, here is a little bit about them:
Foliem is a company based out of Denver,Colorado, and the women behind the creation are exotic perfume professionals!
Foliem ( the latin word for leaf ) launched their em perfume line in March of 2012 and they overall created four distinct scents that are exclusive and especially rare.
This brand is precise perfume extraction from a plant that has never been explored fully by modern science.
The women behind Foliem have the ability to allow each perfume to be specific to a women’s characteristics.
Besides every single one of the scents smelling utterly natural & feeling as though you are out in the wilderness, I give this brand a double thumbs up!
The favorite scent of the four you may ask:
This scent left my skin smelling natural and it still managed to stay long lasting!
To Shop Foliem:
There is nothing more that I love then having a fresh face right before bed, especially when it is coming from an all natural facial cleanser.
I’m a big fan on everything natural and organic, so one of my favorite facial “go-to’s” is homemade facial cleanser.
Here is one of my favorite recipes, Lavendar Facial Cleanser that you can make in the comfort of your very own home!
6 tablespoons of grape seed oil
10 drops of lavender essential oil
5 drops of geranium essential oils
5 drops of rose essential oils
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
Instead of having the worry to use exfoliation body wash and a simple razor, one of my favorite ways to exfoliate on a daily basis is to use my Le Edge exfoliation tool. When I was first introduced to Le Edge I thought that it was really neat how the tool provided a non-slip grip for shower use and that the stainless steel edge wasn’t even sharp. I am one of those individuals that cannot stand razor cuts, and i’m sure you feel the same.
The steps to use Le Edge are also so so simple, all you have to do is use Le Edge in the shower when your skin is pre-moistened and this allows the tool to not only make your skin feel super soft, but collect dead skin cells in the process. I seriously use this tool on a daily basis in the shower and it puts my skin to perfection!
I love it and there is nothing I would rather use.

If you’re like me I hate waking up to under the eye circles. I am not a fan of dark lines around the eyes and a look that comes off as if you haven’t slept for days. One of my new favorite things is to come across anything that is a home remedy, or therefore other as being all natural ingredients for your skin.
One of the best remedies for the under the eye circles….
Cocoa Butter Eye Cream
O Mix ingredients in a small bowl.
O Gently heat in microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring between each.
O Pour into a clean glass container and cool completely.
O Use nightly around your eyes.
There is nothing more that I love then the freshness of a body exfoliating scrub and the all natural minerals that make your skin feel as soft as possible.
One of my favorite recipes on how to make your very own exfoliating scrub is the cinnamon and ginger sea salt scrub recipe.
With just a few simple ingreidients you can treat yourself to the ultimate spa experience.
O 1 cup of sea salt
O ½ tbsp of ground ginger or 1 tbsp of fresh grated ginger
O ½ tbsp of ground cinnamon 1 cup of olive or almond oil.
O Mix all ingredients and scoop out a small amount and rub into dry areas of your body ( use this before you shower or during )
Who ever thought that food could actually be your best kept beauty secret?
I do know that for me my favorite way to keep my skin in shape is by keeping it all natural. Who needs surgery when you actually should never need it?
One of my most favorite bed time routines, the oatmeal face mask.
O Take 5 – 6 tablespoons of ground oatmeal in a bowl and add water to make a thick and smooth paste.
O Spread the mixture on the face evenly and let it dry.
O Then Rinse it with cold water. You can also add milk instead of water to make your facial skin more nourished.
The best oatmeal to use that I have used in the past would be Quaker Oatmeal, very simple and basic.
Also, don’t forget to add your two sliced cucumbers for the under the eye circles!
