Blissoma Mild Rice Facial Cleanser
More info: http://www.iriestar.com/fresh_mild_rice_cleanser.html
So, my skin is finally back to normal (almost), and this addition to my skincare regimen has been nothing but awesome. I received this as a sample and immediately fell in love. I don’t know how one can really love a cleanser, but this was just amazing. I immediately had to buy it full size.
Here is how it fits into my regimen.
At night I wash with Nelsons Pure and Clear Purifying Daily Face Wash with my Clarisonic Mia and then I slather on some prescription face stuff the name of which is too clinical but its benzol peroxide based. Then in the morning I use this to wash off the night and finish off with Nelsons Pure and Clear Moisturizer and Blissoma Adaptive Energy Tonique. I try not to use a traditional toner but a spritz of this is really nice and refreshing.
In the morning you do not need something as strong as you do at the end of the day, but I like the feeling of a clean face, so this cleanser fits the bill. Its amazing, the graininess is just barely there and the consistency really moisturizes. It makes your face feel so incredibly soft, like you just got a facial soft. Packed with Omega 3, 6 and 9 and vitamins A, B, C, D and E its no wonder it leaves your face feel so good.
My favorite thing about the face wash aside from the fact that it is made by hand in St. Louis is 100% Vegan and 100% Natural, is the smell. I have not pinpointed what the smell is but it is the most invigorating morning scent ever.
Overall, the Mild Rice facial cleanser leaves my face, clean but never tight, smooth without over-scrubbing and scented with the most perfect scent.

About a two months ago I was having a major skin freak out. Nothing made my skin normal and clear and everything made my face burn and breakout. A horrible combination, suddenly sensitive skin that is breaking out. This combo is the worst because, what you need to combat the acne is harsh so that made my face burn. I could do nothing. All I was looking for was something to calm my skin down and rein it in, you know, bring it back to a point where it was not burning. Read More

Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic Shampoo and Conditioner

Intelligent Nutrients is the brainchild of the former founder of Aveda. From the website “In 1978, Horst founded Aveda Corporation, a global plant-based cosmetic company, and ushered a new consciousness into the world of beauty. Nearly two decades later, he sold Aveda to Estee Lauder. He shifted focus to Intelligent Nutrients, a health and beauty company that lives to the highest standards of 100% food-based, safe, non-toxic and organic ingredients.” I was smitten with the idea of food based, safe, non toxic beauty products.
I could not wait for my product to arrive. When it did, let me tell you the results were amazing. My hair as I have mentioned before was just a wreck so I was looking for something anything really to get me out of a deep hair rut. This product changed my life really. I was using another shampoo and conditioner combo called Wonder Waves from Fructis but it was discontinued (and not so Green) and it was a great warm weather with humidity combo that kept my wavy, naturally limp hair basically awesome with just an air dry. Any product that allows me to do less and look awesome is something that I am always on the hunt for.
This product totally was a welcome and safe product replacement from my old discontinued standby. My hair is not frizzy, or limp even when I put conditioner up to my roots, something I have not been able to do. My hair is left shiny and bouncy and has brought back my hair. I do not know if there is a correlation but my hair is even thicker than it was too, a welcome added bonus.
If you are looking for a natural, safe everyday shampoo and conditioner that delivers some seirous results look no further, really I have found it with Intelligent Nutrients.

In my make up arsenal of toxic lip products I have about almost a dozen of various reds. On me if there is a lip that makes me look my best, it’s a slightly more than barely there red. I have been on the epic quest for this all the time. Even when I find it, I always think I can find something better and buy another, it’s a problem. Read More
