Hello, my beauties...I'm baaack...and look at how I've turned back the clock with the latest anti-aging cream!!!! Can you believe it? I'm positively elementary...lol! Not really, that's my 6 year old Ruby Mae. And I have to say I've gotten way too much color myself this summer at the pool. Funny though, I'm sure there's a new lotion or potion out there to rescue me....

Good to be back...If you're reading this, I hope this summer finds you happy and healthy.

Good For You Beauty: Wembe Amazonian Soul Soap

Posted By Josi ~ Apr 20, 2010 2:15PM

logoEarth Day's coming up and like it or not, there's a lot of scary crap in our cosmetics...So I thought I'd try out some more earth-friendly natural alternatives to my usual petro-chemical filled beauty staples. Last night I took my makeup off with Wembe Clean Face Makeup Remover ($7.95).

11 Not a real fan of natural bar soaps I was pleasantly surprised.....This little Vegan bad-boy did a great job taking it all off. It turns out olive oil and cocoa butter really agree with the Clarisonic! If you haven't heard of Wembe Soap Company, their mission is:

"To satiate the human thirst for nature; infusing our products with the purest ingredients from natural sources, certified organic when possible, using our knowledge of the power of the rainforest plants and fruits and the magic of aromatherapy, respecting our environment. Helping our community and always respect other beings."

Self-tanning for Perfectionists.......

Posted By Josi ~ Apr 20, 2010 1:58PM

perfectionist Are you a perfectionist like moi? One of the blessings of self-awareness ( a curse on a bad day) is that I have been shocked to realized how much it impacts my life (and others...). Obviously it has a lot to do with why I ended up in the " image business". Hey! If it looks good it IS good, right? (wrong). Beauty companies know this.

Enter Kymaro Sunless Tanning System ($39.95). Nothing bugs my perfectionist-self like self tanner streaks and missed spots...so the Kymaro System comes with a light wand that you scan over your body to see EXACTLY where you've applied.

kymaro_sunless_tanning_system_productThe really nice thing is since you use the light they don't have to stuff thier tanning formula with a bunch of dye that can stain your clothes.  But does it work? I don't know yet. Things have been nutso at my place so I'm waiting for the perfect time....

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow: Confessions of a LAZY girl.....

Posted By Josi ~ Apr 14, 2010 1:17PM

natalie-portman-with-a-shaved-head-looks-splendid-265x300Happy Humpday my beauties! Unfortunately, I don't think I would look quite as cute as Natalie with a shaved head.  Maybe it's my weak arms, but I am so over this long hair thing. I can't wait until it gets super hot and my 9 tons of hair can airdry on it's own in less than 9 hours.  I know I "should" only shampoo every other day, but after gym-hair just totally grosses me out.


So I was happy someone sent me a bottle of Salon Graphixs Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo ($8) to try because it got me through yesterday blow-dry free! Invisible Dry left my hair feeling  fresh and soaked up the greasies just as well as some of the other expensive ones I've tried. I'll be keeping it in rotation.

Still can't wait to wash my hair after the gym today...lol!

Spring Beauty: The Weekly Top 5.....

Posted By Josi ~ Apr 13, 2010 1:03AM


Oh, I'm thinkin' on it....Just need one FULL week of FULL-ON sun! I know I'll curse myself for saying it in few months when it's a bazillion degrees here in Texas but my mood seems to be following the weather patterns....So I'm going to cultivate an attitude of beauty gratitude and give you a  Spring Top 5!

_60393171. Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream ($18). SUPER moisturizing and makes fine lines say, Buh-bye! Bonus, it doesn't give me milia like so many other heavy eye creams....

z08572. Ahava Dermud Intensive Nourishing Body Cream ($32). Sunny, spring days = a lot more leg-shavin' and itchy, irritated gams for moi.....GONE. There's a reason this won this years CEW award...

73193. Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF30 ($40). This luxurious moisturizer thinks it's a sunscreen. None of that annoying rubbing, rubbing, rubbing....

319nz266uil_sl500_aa300_4. ZO Skin Health Oclipse Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 ($65).  I've gushed on this one before. Not only do I not have to worry about my blackheads showing if it's a no-makeup day (been a lot of those lately), but I don't have to worry about more sun damage (I'm already damaged enough as it is...).

lipstain15. Nothing says spring like berry-stained lips..love me some Palladio Lip Stain ($6). Just as good as prestige and the CHEAPEST masstige price of all (even Cover Girl). Check 'em out at Ulta next trip...

So there's some list love for ya. Anything new in your beauty universe I need to embrace? Do tell....

Drugstore Beauty: Body Beauty for Less...

Posted By Josi ~ Apr 12, 2010 2:25AM

Want a cheap beauty thrill for under $10? Try Tree Hut body products...You've seen them at Walmart, Kroger and Ulta (like I have)...and if you are like me thought, "eh, can't be THAT great at THAT price". Well I was WRONG... Turns out Tree Hut puts Certified Organic Shea Butter products into every product! Tree Hut's Shea Butter Body Lotion in Coconut Lime left my skin feeling just as moisturized as more expensive brands and left me smelling totally delish.


I gave my skin a spring slough with Tree Hut Body Scrub in Original Shea...the decadent formula left me smooth and ready for shorts (well, almost...I need to get this jello to the gym)! But seriously, total luxury on the cheap. Because I don't care how tight your budget is...a girl's gotta scrub and this feels RICH.

Be sure to check it out next trip out to your everything store!
