If there’s one thing beauty lovers know (and, who are we kidding—beauty lovers know approximately everything), it’s that there are huge (like, Grand-Canyon-levels huge) discrepancies between American beauty products and foreign beauty products—specifically, the vast number of ingredients allowed in US formulations compared to the incredibly restricted formulations of beauty products overseas. And when it…

Since I was a little girl, I have been making beauty potions. Now that I’m older and as a beauty professional, I love to do them even more.
Hot and steamy weather calls for this!
This is one of my summer favorite beauty recipes for amazing skin treatments not found in a jar but down the aisles of Whole Foods Market or a market wherever you may shop and live! Your skin will LOVE the benefits from these recipes. You can make this recipe for yourself,with your daughter, your mom or even your sweetie.
My husband loves these spa at home recipes too!
½ cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
½ cup of plain creamy Greek yogurt
¼ cup of organic local Honey if possible
Rinse the berries and place in a blender. Add the honey and yogurt.
Blend until creamy. Using your clean fingers or a stiff fan mask brush apply the mask to your face and neck.
Allow it to rest on your face at least 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with luke warm water and a
Please note: If you are allergic to the above obviously do not try the recipe. In addition, these are made from scratch so the shelf life is a few days in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator. I suggest using them to the last drop and enjoy it all at once or in a couple of days.
I also like to use blueberries in a salad,over yogurt or freeze as ice cubes in lemonade.
Blueberries are like healthy candy for my body instead of a real candy bar. Honey is a natural moisturizer that locks in moisture. Your skin loves yogurt and all of the above are found in fabulous face and body creams sold on store shelves.

Happy 4th of July if you live in America!!!
If you don’t have a fab weekend and enjoy this recipe too.
Unlike me it seems every single girl or woman I meet love WEARING mascara. And many I meet are on the hunt for it!
Constantly on a quest for flirty,fabulous,longer lashed eyes!
The reason I say unlike me is that due to allergies I cannot wear many brand mascaras as well as enjoy fake eyelashes as the glue (no matter what brand) annoys my eyes. So, my go to fave product has always been lipstick!
However, if you are seeking that mascara of all mascaras! I received a package in the mail and had to share with you.
It is called Cherry Blooms…and like a cherry tree blooms from tiny flowers to cherries your lashes will bloom.There used to be a large cherry tree in the backyard of my grandmother’s home and I always admired their beautiful journey and blooms.
So, getting back to the mascara there is this saucy Aussie woman who loves to invent things and she came out with this mascara.
They call them lash extensions that you BRUSH ON. no fuss,no glue, no mess.
The mascara is a two step process which I first thought might be a long task especially on the go.
First you apply the gel from a wand, then you apply the black fibers (which are the lash magic to me) and then a coat of the gel to set.
On clean eyelashes with (no other mascara necessary) I couldn’t wait to try and see what volume of lashes I would see as my eyelashes have never been long looking nor defined. My husband’s lashes are what women would envy and he doesn’t even use an eyelash curler not fair.I also waited a few hours to see if my eyes would be allergic or puff up or itch after a coat of the mascara set.
Well, everything went well no swell,no itch no whining on my part.
Longer lashes in less than 60 seconds! My lashes looked AMAZING! I never had such full and beautiful lashes. Best of all they did not crunch. Do you know what I mean by that? You know the feel when you put on several coats of mascara and the layers feel like they are mini tree branches that will snap off? This mascara does not do that.
Great for ladies with allergies,who wear contacts and who want to look good without a TON of time and layered application. It is a really fast process.
The benefits of this product I read online are:
All non-toxic ingredients.Stimulates lash growth,as a good quality beeswax helps cells regenerate faster.Anti-bacterial properties so it doesn’t breed bacteria and has a longer shelf life. Moisturizes those lashes.Lasts longer then other pop up copy cat brands!
LASH LOVERS UNITE!
If you want to look like yourself only better and like the look of fuller,longer or false lashes…you NEED this! It is the bomb!
