UNDONE BEAUTY Has Done it Again

UNDONE BEAUTY has come up with this amazing idea of Holographic Mascara.  Great idea right?  The product is called UNDONE BEAUTY Light on Mascara which has light reflecting particles to make those lashes gleam.  UNDONE BEAUTY Holographic Mascara

UNDONE BEAUTY Light on Mascara also has conditioning caster oil to condition your lashes.  And, it’s ophthalmologist tested, so it’s safe for contact lens wearers too.

I tried it and loved it!  It went on with no clumps and gave both thickness and length to my lashes.  As a bonus, the light reflectors added just a hint of glam.  Its pretty much magic.

A Great Brow Product to Make You Look Younger

Do you draw on your brows or fill them in regularly?  If you are over 35 you should.  A study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology found that as we age, we have less contrast in our facial features, like our brows and our lips.   When researchers compared two pictures of the same woman, one with added contrast, 80% of the time the picture with more contrast was deemed the younger picture of the woman.

What does this mean for us? If you want to appear younger, add more contrast!  You can start with your brows.  As we age, our eyebrows thin out.  So, defining your brows is just one way you can appear younger.

Tattoo Studio
Maybelline Tattoo Studio

Here is a product I recommend that could make life a little easier for you!  Maybelline Tattoo Studio does last for days and was easy to apply!  Just make sure you get the right shade for you.  It’s ok to have a little darker brow.  Brows are what define our face, so go for it and enjoy this product!

An Empowering, All Natural Coffee Scrub

I’ll get to the reason why I used the word “empowering” in just a minute.  But first, I want to tell you about Body by Cordoba’s coffee scrubs. These 100% natural coffee scrubs for your face and body contain coffee and essential oils derived from plants to leave your skin feeling refreshed, moisturized and better than ever!

I tried Body by Cordoba’s Pink Himalayan Salt and Oat Oil Coffee Scrub.  As shown in the picture, the body scrub looks a lot like ground coffee.  It does have a coffee smell, but when I applied it to my face, the coffee smell was much weaker than I had originally thought and there was a pleasant, sweet aroma (maybe from the cinnamon, Himalayan salt, and coconut oil?).  I was grateful of this, because I applied the scrub too close to my mouth (okay, basically all over it) and realized that a bitter taste would not have been welcome.

I recommend that you follow the directions about applying the body scrub gently.  It was rougher once applied than I had expected.  I also applied a little too much at first, so I recommend starting with a small handful, then applying more if you need it.

 

I waited the five minutes and rinsed.  Even though the scrub was coarse, my skin not only felt smooth after rinsing, but it also felt moisturized.  In fact, I didn’t even apply my normal toner and serum regime afterwards because my skin felt so great.  I’m sold!  This will be joining my weekly skincare routine.  There are three other coffee scrubs worth trying as well.  And, if you go to their website www.bodybycordoba and sign up to receive email notifications, you can save 25% on your first order.

 

 

The combination of ground coffee, sugar and Dead Sea salt acts as a natural exfoliant, removing dead skin and revealing healthy, nourished skin. Plant based products such as argan oil, jojoba oil, and macadamia oils are used to soothe and moisturize. Our cruelty-free, handmade scrubs improve blood flow and circulation, and can even help treat skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, and cellulite. The result is healthy, glowing skin that you can feel good about! – www.bodybycordoba.com

 

And, here’s the best part…..drumroll please………not only are these products 100% natural, vegan, and cruelty-free, each purchase you make is invested back into women farmers who grow organic coffee beans.

Each and every BODY by Cordoba scrub is made with premium organic coffee beans. We proudly support the Café Femenino Movement, which ensures that women coffee farmers receive compensation and recognition for the exceptional beans that they produce. For every BODY by Cordoba product purchased, a donation is made to the Café Femenino Foundation.

Treat Yourself this Mother’s Day

We are coming in hot with Mothers Day next week! We already gave you some awesome ideas (checkout that post) but here are a few spa treatments that you should consider gifting to the amazing mom in your life (especially if that is you!)

Last week we visited Santos Salon & Spa  and were lucky enough to try out The Essential Facial and Dermablading.

The Essential Facial is a personalized facial designed to meet your specific skin care needs.  Promotes and maintains healthy skin with a thorough deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and a customized mask. And if that wasn’t enough, during your experience you will also receive a relaxing massage of the upper body, hands, and feet. Sixty minutes later my skin looked and felt great, and I felt relaxed and peaceful.  It was a great experience and felt like Mother’s Day came early:)

Dermablading is a procedure designed to exfoliate the top layer of skin as well as remove any and all peach fuzz on your face.  You are left with fresh skin that feels so soft. Your make-up will glide on easily and look better and over time after continually doing more dermablading you will start to see fine lines and dark spots disappear. So this is a no brainer if you are looking for those types of results. Sounds a bit crazy that this could be relaxing “a blade to the face?” but it is.

Threading – Threading I believe is better for you than waxing but people have their personal preference. My preference is threading for three reasons. Number one, I have the right girl ADITI! Number two, waxing over time can thin the skin and create wrinkles.  It also can cause pigmentation issues if you over wax. Number three, it is so precise, and I personally love that.  Do your research and find a good person and give threading a try instead of waxing. I mostly use threading for my brows but people use threading all over.

These treatments were given to Libby and I by one of their incredible aestheticians Aditi. Aditi is more than just an extremely knowledgable aesthetician, but also one sweet lady to boot! I have had the pleasure of going to her for eyebrow threading for the last 7 years.

If you are in the Cleveland area,  Santos Salon and Spa offers so many things, you should check it out and make sure you ask for Aditi. I know there are also many other wonderful people there but she has my heart. At Santos, they really want people to have an experience and they focus on educating the clients in the process so they understand why a service or a product is the right choice for you.

 

“I wanted to make my passion my profession” – Aditi.

 

 

 

 

Santos offers a huge range of things including: cut/style, color, make-up, airbrush tanning, mani/pedi, skin care (including many different facials), hair removal (including threading) and massage. They also have advanced skincare (including dermablading) and body care.  Santo Salon & Spa is located at 31100 Pinetree Rd, Pepper Pike,  Ohio 44124.  

So treat yourself this Mother’s Day and get to the spa!

DIY Mask for Depuffing and Exfoliating

Here’s a DIY Probiotic Power Mask for Depuffing and Exfoliating*

– 3 Tbsp plain Greek-style yogurt
– 2 Tbsp finely ground coffee
– 1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)

Combine ingredients, mixing until you have a paste.  Apply to clean skin using a gentle, circular cleansing motion.  Let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water and a soft washcloth.  Pat dry.

The beauty of this mask is that you can make it at home and probably already have the ingredients in your cabinets. Leading NY dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe explains in her book, The Beauty of Dirty Skin,  “The caffeine in coffee grounds helps to reduce swelling and puffiness.  The yogurt in addition to containing probiotics, acts as an emollient.  The coconut adds moisture.” 

So, what was our experience with the mask?

We felt less puffy and kinda tight!  I needed moisturizer after, but my daughter felt moisturized.  We both agreed that our skin looked fresh after! – Ashlee

*Recipe from The Beauty of Dirty Skin by Dr. Whitney Bowe (see related post here).

Salads Don’t Have to Be Boring

Continuing on with our week inspired by the book, The Beauty of Dirty Skin, Ashlee made one of the recipes from the book, a “Decadent Salad with Spinach, Chicken, Crushed Walnuts, and Sliced Strawberries”.  Not only is this salad beautiful and delicious, but it follows the “Bowe Glowe” food plan which focuses on aiding your gut.

Decadent Salad from the book The Beauty of Dirty Skin

This salad contains so many good things to help improve your gut and ultimately your skin; protein, healthful fats, prebiotics, and probiotics. See the ingredient list below:

Ingredients for the Decadent Salad with Spinach, Chicken, Crushed Walnuts, and Sliced Strawberries:

  • 1-2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2/3 cup raw dandelion greens
  • 3 ounces boneless skinless grilled chicken, diced
  • 1 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinaigrette (homemade dressing is preferred and provides even more prebiotics (shallots/onion and garlic) and probiotics (raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar).

This is a great salad you can enjoy while feeling great about what you are putting into your body 🙂  To order The Beauty of Dirty Skin from Amazon, click on the image below:
