Review: John Masters Reconstructing Shampoo



I finally had a chance to try out the highly coveted John Masters Reconstructing Shampoo ($25.95). I started using this shampoo about a month ago, and there was not a tinge of disappoint after using this product. I love that it doesn't dry out my hair and that it makes it feel soft after using it. My hair is strong and healthier than ever. My hair is also shinier and thicker than I've ever seen it. This shampoo might be a bit steep in price, but it is well worth if great quality is what you're aiming for. It is an excellent daily shampoo for dry, damaged, color-treated or permed hair.

Linolenic and hyaluronic acids, found in abundance in young hair, are combined with soy, rice & oat proteins to renew and reconstruct damaged hair - fortifying and strengthening with each wash. Honey & hibiscus extracts and 9 other certified-organic extracts and plant oils penetrate the hair with nutrients and provide a great scent. Does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate.

Review: Treasured Earth Gardenia & Rose Moisture Cream



The Gardenia & Rose Moisture Cream ($39.95) is a top notch moisturizer. It is made with Certified Organic oils & butters, natural vitamin E and extracts of Blackcurrant for Vitamin C, Watercress for moisture regulation & Ginseng for its rejuvenating, strengthening and elasticizing properties. Additional therapeutic benefits are gained from the precious essential oils of gardenia, rose otto, lavender & cypress. This moisturizer is lightweight, non-greasy and easily absorbed day and night cream for normal to oily skin. The smell is quite pleasant. It also makes a wonderful (and healthy) makeup base. I use a tiny amount and work it all the way down to my decollete. I would buy this product with a resounding yes!

Review: Tilvee Botanical Rejuvenating Oil

Meet Kristie McNamara: Kristie, Tilvee founder, received her degree in Botany and Organic Chemistry in 1997 from Michigan State University. She worked in a local natural market during and after college which linked her education and fascination with plants, their uses in the formulation of and niche for natural and organic skin care. She began formulating and opened the skin care company Body Botanicals in 2000 which has been sold nationwide. In the past few years, Kristie's extensive research into the benefits of antioxidants in skin care planted a seed. She began formulating new products that were in line with this vision which became Tilvee eco-ethical skin care company. With Tilvee she has created a socially and environmentally responsible company that offers luxurious, safe, innovative organic products. Kristie is also passionate about green business practices, consumer education and being involved in the community of eco conscious individuals and businesses.



Tilvee Botanical Rejuvenating Oil is a product that can be treated on scars, dry patches and burns. It can also can be used an anti-aging treatment since this product has ingredients that provide EFA’s to support cell regeneration, elasticity and tissue repair while decreasing visible signs of aging.
It contains 92% organic ingredients. Therefore, this product is not only safe to use, but it also provides good nourishment for the skin.

I decided to give the Tilvee Botanical Rejuvenating Oil ($24.99) a try since I have a few minor scars here and there. I use this oil and massage twice a day, and I've noticed that since I've been product that my scars aren't as noticeable. It may be a bit pricey, but it is well worth it, especially if you're looking for a great scar treatment for minor scars without shelling thousands of dollars on laser scar removal.

Temptu Airbrush Makeup Backstage at Max Azria Spring 2010 Collection



Temptu, the leader in professional makeup, was backstage at New York Fashion Week’s Spring 2010 Shows, leading the way with trendsetting beauty and revolutionary new makeup techniques. Backstage at Max Azria’s highly anticipated Spring Collection at the Tent at Bryant Park, Makeup Artist extraordinaire Lisa Butler led the Temptu Pro Team in a simplistic look that captured the essence of beauty in an elegant, minimalistic way.

For Spring 2010, Max Azria introduced a clean and sleek collection of elegance that incorporated neutral, solid colors with post-modern touches. Lisa Butler’s approach to the makeup was to create a soft, subdued, and fresh look to complement the collection’s uncomplicated sophistication, “We wanted the girls to look as fresh and natural as possible,” said Butler.



To achieve this level of minimalistic elegance, Butler used the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System, with the AIR Pod Highlighter in Champagne to add light and sheer accents underneath the brow bone, around the sides of the eyes, on top of the cheeks, and on the lips with a touch of clear mascara to lift the eyebrows. The simplicity of this look saw no other additional makeup. “Using airbrushing as an application technique really pulled the essence of natural beauty together,” said Butler. “It provides light, natural-looking coverage while adding dimension to the face.”

Venus Goes Pink to Get Closer to the Cause

Did you know that every three minutes in the U.S., a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer? At Venus, we recognize that in some fashion, breast cancer has touched all of us – so this October, in honor of whoever that person is in your life – we’re going pink to Get Closer to the Cause.

On September 27, P&G will distribute ‘Give Hope’ brandSAVER coupons to over 52.5 million households. For every coupon redeemed, P&G will make a donation to help drive awareness and find a cure. Both the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Foundation will be recipients of donations to support this important cause. For every Venus fan out there, this is an easy and “smooth” way to Get Closer to the Cause – you purchase, we donate, we all get one step closer to the tools and resources that save women’s lives.



The new pink Venus Embrace will be accessorized with a breast self-exam “how-to” booklet. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, self-exams should be performed monthly (around the same time the average woman changes her razor blade). So, it’s a good idea to work them into your shaving routine; conveniently before or after shaving your underarms.
