Keeping it light + bright for summer’s end : my first (and only) beauty product list

I’m keeping it a bit light for the summer’s end…here’s my love list of (surface) beauty products — for one time only.


: Renee Rouleau Cleanser. No nasty preservatives. One bottle lasts about a year.

: Renee Rouleau Mint Buffing Beads

: Renee Rouleau Ginseng Toner. I put it in a small spray bottle and use it post cleansing and pre-moisturizing. I also spritz it after I put on my make up to set ma’face and get a glow.

: Escents’ Blemish B’Gone. Best zit-zapper, ever.

: Eminence Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. This stuff munches dead skins cells.

: Dermalogica Sebum Mask. Magic gunk remover.

: Clarisonic cleansing gizmo, If it’s good enough Gwyneth Paltrow, for it’s good enough for us. Deep, buzzy clean.

: Moroccan Oil size of a dime on dry hair = sexy sheen.

: Tweezermans. Must have professional pluckers and lock pickers.

: SonicCare toothbrush. These are pricey but they go on sale often. So worth it.

: Young Living Essential Oils. The best of the best. I use a few drops in my bath and in my air diffuser. I also wear the Frankincense as perfume once and a while. High vibe.

: Voluminous Mascara, L’Oreal. I’ve conducted an extensive experiment and survey for the best mascara. Lancome’s Defincils is a close runner up. Same goes for my search for the best black eyeliner, which is from MAC.

: Lorac’s Bronze Vixen Collection is all that.

: The Body Shop’s Lip Liner in Beech is the best natural lippy shade. Top it with gloss.

: Marcelle eye-makeup remover is just as effective as the pricey stuff.

: Hemp Hand Protector from The Body Shop. Intense yum.

: Kiss My Face Peaceful Patchouli Body Lotion, is just the right kinda earthy. Second best: olive oil — skin, hair, everywhere.


: Crazy Sexy Diet, by Kris Carr is my lifestyle, all good things come from this.

: Emergence C. Jet lag, bugs, fatigue — slam it back.

: E-3 Live BrainOn is light for your brain.

More important than all the potions to your outer glow is getting sleep, regular lovin’, smiling, and veggies.

Philosophical depth and penetrating insight will resume shortly.
