From the moment I opened the packaging and caught the smell of the PurErb Clarity Brightening Bar Soap I was hooked on the scent and super excited about using it.

Earthy, soothing, calming- and this bar smells absolutely divine.

It’s also packed with 38 transformative, brightening plant extracts like Ginseng, Mulberry, and Bearberry (to name just a few), all in a sleek black bar.

Not only did my skin feel fresh, purified and clean- it felt balanced and not dried out, which is super rare in a bar soap.

PurErb is an Herbology Based brand that has a mind blowing collection of 100% pure botanical based products produced in line with Meridien Principles and Theory.

May Lindstrom Skin.

Saturday, February 27th, 2016


Everyone I am working with these days has extraordinarily sensitized, parched faces- both skin and lips. It’s a constant struggle on set and so I searched and discovered a solution from a favorite natural line. Meet The Blue Cocoon from high performance, all organic May Lindstrom Skin.

One of my favorite brands, I’ve written about May Lindstrom Skin here before….and here as well.

So, you have to guess that this is a new favorite of mine. This sublime, highly concentrated beauty balm-to-fluid concentrate is the antidote to super dry, parched skin. The Blue Cocoon envelops and treats skin with a blend that contains ultra-calming and soothing Blue Tansy and other plant-powered ingredients like Frankincense, Marula and Camelia Oil. Your skin will thank you.

Laurel Whole Plant Organics is a favorite all natural skincare brand of mine. They are one of the first brands that comes to my mind when clients tell me they aspire to go “green” with their beauty routine and ask me what they should buy.

Inspiring on every level, the latest magic produced by this Sausalito based brand is their new Blemish Treatment.

This 100% Whole Plant Organic formulation targets and treats acne and inflammation. It contains powerful ingredients like Black Cumin, Tamanu and Thyme, and the soothing, calming properties of Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Lavender.

Explore this line if you haven’t done so already. Prepare to fall in love with Laurel Whole Plant Organics! Visit their website to learn more HERE.

The stick does away with the need to use a small cosmetic spatula or your fingers for application. The same all day, non greasy, all natural protection remains. Aluminum free, Paraben free, Phthalate free, Gluten free and certified Vegan.

Osea is one of my favorite brands and Osea Black Algae Mask is one of my favorite products in their line up. Black Algae Mask is a granular detoxifying mask that deeply exfoliates and increases circulation. Black jojoba “spheres” exfoliate and enzymes deep cleanse your skin leaving it glowing.

I was first introduced to Osea when I was in Esthetics school, completing requirements for my Esthetician license. I fell in love with everything about the line immediately. The name Osea comes from Ocean, Sun, Earth, Atmosphere. Osea products are all organic, gluten free, vegan and all natural in every way so if you are unfamiliar with Osea you simply must explore their website to learn more about them and their high performance natural line.

If you’re not yet familiar- Hyaluronic Acid is known as “Nature’s Moisturizer” because this Hydrophilic molecule occurs naturally within the tissues of our skin.

Over time, with age, we lose Hyaluronic Acid as the body produces less and less of the molecule. This paraben free, fragrance free, Pure Hyaluronic Serum from Pestle & Mortar hydrates, plumps, smooths fine lines and restores skin’s radiance and elasticity.

This formula is super lightweight, suitable for all skin types (even the oiliest) and absorbs instantly- providing skin with a perfect platform for further treatment or makeup. Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum is cruelty free and contains no animal ingredients.
