Stay Dry in the sun Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF

I have some wonderful news for those of you, like myself, who need a little foundation in the summer months but don’t like the heavy feeling of liquid foundations.  Skin imperfections don’t disappear in the summer and lightly tinted foundation is often needed, at least for me it is.  Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF is the perfect solution for me, and maybe for you tooPowder-Me SPF is a foundation, concealer and sunscreen all in one.  Not only is this dry sunscreen chemical-free and water resistant, it is suitable for the face and body providing Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Whether I am swimming, exercising or just  relaxing outdoors, I don’t have to worry about reapplying for over an hour (60-80 minutes).

Powder-Me SPF dry sunscreen has some fabulous features, one being that it is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.  “Titanium Dioxide and a natural clay work to nourish and calm the skin and help soothe inflammation that may arise with too much sun exposure.”  Not only does  Powder-Me SPF act as a sunscreen and foundation for women but it  is also suitable for men and children, although children under 6 months should have a doctors permission before use. Powder-Me SPF  offers high protection against sunburn, doesn’t run while sweating and rinses off easily with water.

My 23 year old daughter is enjoying using this product: “I applied Powder-Me SPF dry sunscreen using the soft, sponge applicator on my face, neck and arms for instant sun protection and an even complexion (see photo below).  I like the light powdery feeling the dry sunscreen leaves on my face. Powder-Me dry SPF  is small enough that it  fits perfectly in any purse or bag I might be carrying.  I can apply it throughout the day without the mess that liquid foundations often cause.  Just pull it out of  your purse or beach bag and puff the powder on. I can apply it throughout the day leaving my hands clean and dry which isn’t the case when I use liquid sunscreen. It’s easy, clean and it works.”

The following is information provided by Jane Iredale The Skin Care Makeup: “When it comes to caring for the health and beauty of your skin, there really isn’t anything more important than protecting it from the damaging rays of the sun. Powder-Me SPF is a breakthrough dry sunscreen for face and body with a very water resistant  rating and UVB/UVA SPF 30 protection from Jane Iredale – The Skin Care Makeup.”  

Powder-Me SPF comes in three shades, translucent (clear), tanned (for a sunkissed glow) and  golden (ideal for medium skin tones).

We should all  pamper our skin, after all, it is the only skin we have, and we must protect it.  Pevonia Sun Care products have  got you covered.  Pevonia Botanica Sun Care offers “sun safe” products to enable you to soak up the rays, and still  have fun in the sun without damaging your skin. With Pevonia,  your skin will be protected and hydrated not just during the summer months but all year long.

Pevonia Botanica Sun Care Line  works to ” Protect, Hydrate and Restore your skin before and after Sun”.  Most of us are well aware of the dangers of sun damaged skin, but every once in a while, an unexpected sunburn does happen.  My 18 year old son recently experienced a painful  sunburn on his neck and back. Pevonia After Sun Soothing Gel actually relieved the pain from his sunburn. With a combination of  Water Lily extract and Proline, the gel actually desensitized his skin while offering a very cooling sensation.  My son felt relief almost immediately.

I hope he learned his lesson.  Just to be on the safe side he now applies Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 while outside, to protect him from future sunburns and from UVA and UVB rays.   Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 is rich in Vitamin E, C and B and suitable for the entire face and body.  My son likes the fact that it is not greasy and is  easy to apply.

My two favorite Pevonia Sun Care products are the “Self Tanning Emulsion”  and the “Phyto-aromatic Mist”.  Whether I am indoors or outdoors,  after  spritzing Pevonia Mist onto my skin, I am left with cool fresh feeling. It has a delightful blend of Chamomile, Calendula and French Rose. The combination of all three help restore moisture, sooth skin and help prevent irratation.

Now even I can have the look of being out in the sun while avoiding the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.  Pevonia Self Tanning Emulsion when applied properly,  ensures an even application for an even tan.   Please note: Follow instructions for application and spread evenly on your body.  If applied correctly, you will not be disappointed. Visit and view an extensive line of skin care products.  From “safe sun” to “anti-aging”, there is somethng for every skin’s needs. You only have one skin and Pevonia has it covered.

IT&LY Hairfashion Presents….the “Purity Design” Experience

I was recently introduced to IT&LY Hairfashions extensive and incredible line of hairstyling and finishing products called Purity Design. What makes Purity Design so unique? It was designed to “create personal styles while providing moisture and shine to hair.”

IT&LY Hairfashion states that their “labs have separated the purest active ingredients and created a new protection formula that characterizes the line “Desert Blend“. Desert Blend is a combination of vegetable extracts and proteins derived from the plants of arid zones.  “These ingredients ensure  the natural hydration and the right protection against damages to the hair from pollutant agents and UV rays; therefore preventing dryness and dullness.”

Now, let me tell you about the products themselves. I found IT&LY’s website to be very helpful in selecting the appropriate product for my hair type. IT&LY has created  products to treat the specific needs of their clients. I have curly hair and need a medium hold, so what products do I choose?

At’11-page(s).pdf, you will find a complete description of each product in the Purity Design line.  On  pages 10 and 11,  I found the ” hold factor key”  to be extremely helpful.  This easy to follow color coded chart helped me select the product I needed based ont the hold I wanted (there are 4 to choose from), I chose medium. Purity Design  products do exactly what they say they do, as long as the instructions are followed.

Purity Design Pure Shampoo and Pure Conditioner are perfect for both normal and dry hair.  While the Shampoo helps make your hair stonger and healtier, the conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft, silky  and looking shiny.

After Shampooing and Conditioning, I gave my hair the Pure Fluid Experience.  I applied a small amount of this creamy, silky fluid to my damp hair. Pure Fluid was  designed to give softness and shine to my hair and it did just that.

Pure Hair Eco,  is a medium hold hairspray I use when needed,  giving  my hair a great hold without the heaviness and stiffness some hairsprays can cause.

Everyone who uses hair products should know that ” IT&LY Hairfashion is committed to creating an eco-friendly corporate environment as well as the use of emerging green techiniques in the production of its extensive line of environmentally friendly products”.

visit and learn more about Purity Design Hairfashion and select the products that were specially designed for you.

Selena Gomez Dazzles Wearing AVON at the Teen Choice Awards

Celebrity makeup artist Karan Mitchell worked with young starlet Selena Gomez for last night’s Teen Choice Awards. Inspired by Selena’s hot pink D Squared dress, Karan gave Selena a fun, flirty look with lots of lashes and pink lip gloss.

Karan focused on Selena’s eyes, layering shadows, liner and applying false lashes. She kept her skin super dewy by applying foundation with a dampened sponge and adding concealer under her eyes and on the t-zone for extra brightness. To give her that sunkissed effect, Karan contoured her cheeks with bronzer under the cheek bones and applied blush to her cheekbones for a rosy glow.

Below are the products that were used to get Selena’s look–all are available on or through Avon representatives nationwide.

When your skin looks great you feel great.  Another nice feature about Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm is that it is non-greasy and absorbs rapidly into your skin. I use it several times a day, especially after washing my hands and we all know that hand washing especially hand sanitizers, are ia big culprit when it comes to dry hands.

How many of you are Gel Manicurs wearers?  According to SebamedThis dermatologist-recommended balm is a deep moisturizing treatment that will improve the look, feel and health of your hands and nails between each manicure”.

While using Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm, you will notice improvement in the elasticity of your skin for a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Brighten Your Day the KARUNA Way

Karuna, “The Mask Experts,” has designed seven unique one-step, no-rinse formula masks.  Featured here, is the  The Karuna Brightening Treatment Mask.  The Karuna Masks were created for women who wish to pamper themselves with the most unique delivery system.  As stated by Karuna, they use “highly specialized ingredients that are custom blended to deep condition your skin to deliver specific results through an innovative delivery system”. Karuna Skin Treatment Masks help to deliver instant results.

Karuna’s Brightening Treatment Masks contain Grapefruit Seed Extract, which shields your skin from environmental toxins, while  rare Asian plant extracts help to create a fresher-looking, smoother-feeling complexion. Karuna believes that after experiencing the mask just once, your skin will feel calmer, brighter and fully moisturized.

I had the pleasure of pampering myself with a Karuna Brightening Treatment Mask.  The directions were very clear and easy to follow.  As you can guess, the side of the mask that is applied to your face is the side with the specially blended beauty product on it. I spread out the Karuna Mask evenly on my face and although the directions stated to relax for 10 to 20 minutes, I strongly suggest relaxing for the full 20 minutes. By doing this,  you will get the most benefit from Karuna’s  paraben-free custom-blended beauty product.  After you peel the mask off, massage the remaining product into your neck and hands. You will find the Karuna Mask to be very soothing.

The mask itself is an  all-natural fiber cloth, retaining 50% more moisture than synthetics, the Karuna cloth is “green” being made from bio-degradable wood pulp.  Karuna has created  7 different kinds of masks for individuals with specific facial needs.  You can choose from Brightening, Clarifying, Age-Defying, Hydrating, Karma, Exfoliating and Eye Renewal.  The Karuna Masks are sold in 4-packs at and there, you can learn more about Karuna masks and watch a How-To video and see just how easy it is to use the Karuna  Masks.   You will also find Karuna on Facebook  at

Brighten Your Day the Karuna Way…Today!

Soap & Glory Original Pink Eau de Parfum just Sparkles

Original Pink Eau de Parfume is a delightfully fragrant perfume having Soap & Glory’s signature rose and bergamot scent.  I found Original Pink most appealing, mainly because liked the  sparkling fragrance of orange, lemon, peach and strawberries.   Soap & Glory Original Pink also picked up some scents of gardenia, rose and jasmine all of which created  a lovely subtle aroma.  Original Pink itsn’t  too fruity, and I would wear it day and night.  After misting Original Pink, I found the fragrance to last quite some time which is always a test whether or not I will continue to wear it, and this particular fragrance, I definitely will.

You can purchase Soap & Glory Original Pink Eau de Parfum at and if you like Original Pink Eau de Parfum, you will love Soap & Glory’s other fragrances as well as their Bath and Body and Skin Care Line.  They have a fun website so make sure you check it out.
