Mineral Silk Blemish Buster Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin

Having issues with break outs, blackheads or cystic acne?

Our Blemish Buster Cleansing Gel
will help remove dead skin cells letting your skin rejuvenate faster! This gel cleanser is sulfate free and paraben free. It is a black viscous foaming gel cleanser that has great slip. It is packed with ingredients that are perfect for acne prone and oily skin. Blemish prone skin needs to have the dead skin cells removed from the surface of the skin to prevent future blackheads, pimples or cysts. Washing your face more than twice a day is not necessary and can actually lead to more problems. You simply want to remove the surface impurities and the dead skin which is blocking the pores. Treating the acne prone skin harshly and over cleansing the skin will only make an already oily face produce more oil. Stop stripping your skin of its natural oils and start treating it gently; you'll love the end results!

Three of my favorite ingredients in this product that help with acne and inflammation-

Activated Charcoal
draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Be sure to give all new skin care products at least 2 to 3 weeks to start working. Changing what you use on your skin can sometimes cause flare ups. But, the good news is this cleanser is going to help slough skin and start cleaning out those nasty pores!
Roman Chamomile Distillate is a wonderful skincare ingredient for calming rashes, sensitivities, rosacea, acne, heat rash, and redness. It is anti-inflammatory as well as being a good anti-oxidant, anti-irritant and wound healer. It may also ameliorate the look of UV damaged skin and reduce stinging and irritation.

Tea tree oil has skin-soothing properties and is also an antioxidant.

This product took about 3 weeks to really kick in but now that I'm seeing results it's totally worth the wait! I love all the natural ingredients. My sensitive skin does NOT react well to harsh chemicals. It can be a little drying but I just combine organic jojoba oil with it & it takes care of it.Plus a toner & lotion will even things out.

Reviewer: Gloria Foster from Lawton, OK United States

I'm a first-time user of this product, and so far I'm very pleased.  It leaves my skin cleansed of excess oil without leaving my face dry and taught.

Time to stock up on Finishing Powders!

The Holiday Season is in full swing!

It's here, the start of the holiday season.  How does the song go...It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but let’s be honest–it can also be the most stressful!

Holidays are meant to be fun. Especially the Christmas season. But more often than not, juggling home, work and holiday preparation is a mountain most people would rather not climb. And every year, these same people probably vow that next year will be different. Well, believe it or not, the holidays can be stress-free. But even that requires a little work. Here are some tips to help you cruise into Christmas.

1 Be organized

Make lists for groceries, people to shop for, cards or letters to write, decorations to buy. Sit down with a calendar and give yourself target dates for getting things done. It will make a manic month more sane. To make sure you don't forget anything or anyone, you can even find suggested holiday planning guides online.

2 Less is always more
This doesn't mean skimp. But simple decorations can speak volumes more than a room crowded with all kinds of knick-knacks. When it comes to menu-planning, don't get too ambitious. Choose recipes that are tried and true to avoid the stress of an uncertain outcome. And given that most people complain about overeating during the holidays, a small selection of quality eats will likely be perfect.

3 Leave the cooking to someone else
When you're cooking for a crowd, it's not only time-consuming, but often pretty pricey. Alternatively, look into catering services. A caterer may cost the same as buying all the ingredients yourself. And even if it's a little more expensive, it may be worth the time and headache you save.

4 Share holiday hosting responsibilities
Given the abundance of holiday parties and the inevitable conflicts in peoples' schedules, co-host a party with a friend. It's one engagement for your friends instead of two, and it'll cut your stress in half.

5 Make things ahead of time
Choose menu items that can be frozen until the day you need them. This will cut down on the number of things you need to do on the day of your event.

6 The infamous cookie exchange

Organize a group of friends and have everyone make two to three dozen of their favorite holiday cookies, bars or squares. Then get together and swap so everyone has a little of each. It saves you hours in the kitchen and comes in handy when people drop by unexpectedly. A few samples wrapped in cellophane also make great hostess gifts.

7 Festive-colored potpourri
It's an easy design accent and can make the house smell like someone's always baking. If you're not into potpourri, scented candles, oils or incense will do the same. And when you feel the holiday stress taking hold, stop and take a deep breath. Warm scents like lavender or cinnamon will relax you.

8 Easy decorations
You'll find an abundance of Christmas decorations in the stores. But often the most elegant and effective are those you make yourself. And you can get the kids to help. Use branches, leaves, acorns and berries from your backyard to create centerpieces or festive confetti that can be strewn across mantles and tables.

9 Colorful creations
Buy a few yards of fabric in rich colors or textures and use them as table runners or chair covers. Patterned ribbons are also an inexpensive way to dress up candle holders and serving utensils. Or use them as festive napkin holders.

10 Get help with the housework
If you haven't got one already, the holiday season is a good time for a cleaning service. If you do have one, you may want to book them for an extra visit.

11 Involve the kids
They can help decorate -- everything from rooms to cookies. So even if they're in the way, they're helping you get the job done.

Micellar Water Wins My Vote!

I am at the age where I am typically not swayed by company claims of greatness or magical cures when it deals with my skincare or even house hold cleaners.  But, for the first time in years I was tempted to try a product called Micellar Water. 

I'm not sure why I was so interested in trying out something that seemed like regular old tap water? It certainly wasn't the scientific information listed of how the little ball shaped molecules have lipophilic ends that cling to dirt and oil and hydrophilic ends that cling to water. Scientific claims don't always interest me, and actually confuse me. Just look at the photo above, not exactly an exciting picture for selling skin care! So that is why I test things out, as it is the proof that interests me.

While having lunch with a friend whom I had not seen for a few months, I could not get past how her skin looked so healthy and dare I say....glowing.  She wears my powder foundation, Cashmere to be exact. But, something had changed in her skin. It was as if she wasn't wearing as much foundation as she used to, I could actually see some freckles I never noticed before.

The conversation quickly ended about kids, family blah blah blah......and quickly turned to whats up with her skin? Those of you who know me personally, know I don't typically talk about work or my makeup line unless directly asked.  I need a break from work too!  She smiled at me and said "I have been using this water stuff and love it." She said she even uses it before bed! I have told her for years to wash her makeup off before bed, even if its a quick swipe of cleanser or toner. When she told me what she was using I was skeptical but, her face wasn't lying!  As soon as I got home I ordered up some samples and am happy to say after just a week, my skin has never looked better!

Not only does my skin have a more even skin tone, but I have had these raised acne dry patches on my chin for years.  They would flair up every month during my period and then just be lumpy, dry and flaky for the rest of the month. Yep, it is true one is totally gone and the other has just about disappeared. I wish I would have taken a before and after to prove it.  I would say within the next week, the one on the left is a goner! I don't want to get carried away with claims, but I think my pores may even be smaller!

So, I of course decided to source out some different manufactures of Micellar and was shocked at the price difference in some of them. One was actually $150.00 per 2oz. Yeah not testing out that one!  The lowest was $7 but that contained a lot of witch hazel and added chemicals and the other one I refused to try contained castor oil! Um no, I will pass on that one too! 

After a few weeks of research and testing I have found a great company that sells it with the purest ingredients I could find.  So its time for you to check it out and see for yourself. Lets us know how Micellar Cleansing Water improves your skin!
