Michael Todd Grape Seed Cleansing Oil

Michael Todd Grape Seed Cleansing Oil

Michael Todd Grape Seed Cleansing Oil

Until now, facial cleansing oils have scared me.  I try so hard to keep oil off of my face and out of my pores. Why would I want to put oil on my face and why is everyone so obsessed with it? Can people who have oily skin use the product? Why doesn’t the oil clog our pores? Are they safe for those with acne prone skin (me!)

The past couple of weeks info on oil facial cleansers has been crossing my desk more often than usual.  I got to thinking that maybe facial cleansing oils are a good thing.  I asked IAGT team member Donna Raheb if she had come across any facial oils that I could try out.  Donna is a huge fan of the Michael Todd brand so she hand delivered to me the Michael Todd Grape Seed Cleansing Oil.  The first thing I did was squirt it on my hands, a squirt here and a squirt there.  The scent is subtle but very nice.  I massaged it in, washed my hands and patted them dry, after which there was no oily residue. But the try test will be tonight. I’ll be cleansing my face with it this evening.  I will post the results to my Facebook page.

Here’s the scoop on the Michael Todd Grape Seed Cleansing Oil taken right from the pretty purple container. It removes dirt, oil and makeup completely. Rinses thoroughly. Hydrates and nourishes skin.  It won’t strip the skin of it’s natural moisture balance. And, Grape Seed Oil is indeed it’s primary ingredient!

Spring, a time for rebirth with ABC Home

uma oils

Spring….a time for rebirth, renewal and regrowth….we see it in nature and we also see it in ourselves. It is a time when we want to move more, we feel our senses come alive to the sights, sounds and smells of the season. We feel lighter, rediscover ourselves and we too like the flowers about to bud, reconnect with the spirit within. We awaken from winter’s hibernation and appreciate the beauty of the world around us.

The beauty is not just in the outside world, it is in our own selves as well. “All beings are flowers blossoming  in a blossoming universe” Soen Nakagawa. It was fitting then, on one of the first sunny, warm days in NYC that ABC Home, known for helping discover a world of inspiration and beauty for the home, turned the focus into finding a day to find our home within; a day to rediscover and treasure your unique beauty, by incorporating the beauty, wellness and wisdom of the season.

The day started off in Deepak Homebase , which is magical in its own right. It sets up a serene, tranquil and accepting environment which would be the backdrop for a day of bliss, self love and connection; a day of engaging with our greatest eco-brands and their founders; a day to set your intention in learning from masters.

The day started with insightful talks on astrology, yoga, lifestyle medicine, food, creating a peaceful economy and getting in touch with your intuition.  We learned from Spiritual Astrologer Demitra Vassiliadis that this spring the planets are lining up in order to get us to return to the deepest sense of value, what we love about ourselves and may have forgotten along the way. All of the topics discussed reinforced the importance of self love, acceptance and embracing your own uniqueness. To be united with the beauty we see.

The afternoon was a session for the senses. Flowering arranging with ABC Bloom, smudging with Incausa, aromatherapy with Palermo Body and Rahua. We discovered  wonderful ways to reconnect with your body such as aline your spine Alexander technique and healing tonics and elixirs such as Bija Bhar turmeric lattes, Four Sigmatic’s mushroom coffee, Moon Juice’s beauty dust lattes, Olivia Clementine tea sampling, salad dressings by Organic Culinary Argan Oil by Victoria Akkari, digestive bitters by Urban Moonshine, water sampling by Water Talk, and Welly Bottle  water infusions, beauty treatments such as Dr. Alkaitis reiki facials, Tracie Martyn hand and eye treatments, NUORI moisturizing masks, Rahua scalp massages, sampling of innovative products by Erbaviva, Indie Lee, Intelligent Nutrients, Kahina, Osea, tenoverten and UMA Oils helped stimulate the senses. And with hair styling by Yarok , the re discovering of ones inner beauty has begun!

Spring is the time of new beginnings…..

“The beautiful spring came; and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also” Harriet Ann Jacobs

Produce in skin care products. What you need to know.

pretty lady eating apple

Fruits and vegetables have beneficial antioxidant compounds that truly benefit the body when consumed alone, with your breakfast cereal, in your favorite smoothie or any way you choose to get your daily dose of produce.

Although fruits and vegetables may be great taken by mouth, that doesn’t mean they are going to be great when you put them in a topical skin care product. Topical skin care products need to be formulated to ensure that the ingredients remain active, penetrate the skin and do not lose their benefits when mixed with other ingredients and you must have enough of the fruit or vegetable ingredient to get any benefit out of it.

Here’s a look at three skin care brands with fruit and vegetable ingredients that are worth seeking out and that do it right.

The PURA D’OR brand of hair care formulas include a number of premium organic and natural fruit and vegetable ingredients such as Avocado, Carrot, Cherry, Coconut, Cucumber, Grape, Lemon, Mango, Olive, Orange, Papaya, and Pomegranate.

The formulations of the newly launched Nyakio skin care products are inspired by the family recipes of Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, a first generation American of Kenyan descent. The range of ingredients include but are not limited to: Avocado, Grape, Cucumber, Tomato and Papaya.

The Petal Fresh Pure line of bath, body and hair products uses Mandarin, Mango, Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Cucumber, Lemon, Olive and more in their product formulations.

A Pretty Shabby Chic Jewelry Organizer to hang on your wall

Shabby Chic Jewelry Display

Shabby Chic Jewelry Display Organizer

I found this idea for a jewelry display organizer online. It is easy to make yourself or you can purchase this one and others here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/513961681/shabby-chic-jewelry-keeper-jewelry?ref=related-4 . All you need is screen, a distressed (or not) wooden photo frame, hooks and for the actual wall hanging, I suggest Hang-O-Matic, All-In-One Wall Décor Hanging Tool. You can get it online at Bed Bath & Beyond, or online at Lowes.com  and at Homedepot.com . Use the Hang-O-Matic to hang it straight the first time. You won’t need to mess up the wall with extra nail holes. Even though the “mistake” holes can sometimes be hidden, it drives me crazy knowing they are there!
