This mask sounds amazing I can’t wait to check it out!

Balanced Guru Creates One of the 1st Certified Organic Powder Face Masks with their Spiced Up Berries Antioxidant Masque

Powder facial mask for youthful, blemish-free, even toned skin with certified organic food-graded ingredients of Acai & Acerola Berries, Clove, Cinnamon, Oatmeal & Vitamin C

Powder Face Masque
As a certified organic, 100% natural, cruelty-free line of holistic aromatherapy skin, hair, and body care, Balanced Guru is proud to announce the launch of one of the first certified organic powder face masks on the market: Balaned Guru’s Spiced Up Berries Antioxidant Facial Masque. Activated by mixing with water, honey, greek yogurt or toner, create healthier, younger looking skin cells with this powder mask using Acai and Acerola Berries, Clove, Cinnamon, Oatmeal & Vitamin C for youthful, blemish-free and even toned skin. The Acerola Cherry packs more milligrams of Vitamin C than an orange, overflowing with collagen-building and acne fighting properties.

Directions: A single application will consist of about 1/6 oz of powder, adding your activator of choice (water, honey, greek yogurt or toner) based on the consistency you wish to achieve. The 4 oz jar has about 24 applications (enough for a 6 month supply used once weekly). Each jar comes with a spoon to scoop out the product and a spatula to help mix and apply. A brush is the preferred way to smooth over skin.

Fact: While young skin is full of Vitamin C, skin naturally loses this nutrient over time resulting in pre-mature signs of aging. Blemishes are also caused by a lack of Vitamin C in your skin.

All of Balanced Guru products are made with certified organic food-graded ingredients meaning all of their ingredients are safe enough to eat and extremely rich in nutrients, anti-oxidants and vitamins that will make you see and feel the physical benefits of using them on your skin. Colorful berries are a great way to feed skin with antioxidants, while clove and cinnamon are also loaded with antioxidants to fight free radicals like UV rays, pollution, and other lifestyle factors that prematurely age skin. Vitamin C will give this masque an extra boost to also help brighten your complexion.

L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Mask Review

loccitane hair mask

With naturally curly hair I have a real issue keeping my hair hydrated without weighing down my curls. I am always on the lookout for a great hair mask and L’Occitane has brought back their highly rated Aromachologie Repairing Mask. After my first use I can see why this has been a customer favorite.

The mask is a really thick texture and you don’t need much to coat all your hair. After towel drying, I apply the mask and work through to the ends. I like to  cover my hair with a shower cap and wrap my head in a towel to let the product really go to work. I leave it on about 15 minutes and rinse. The mask smells amazing and leaves my curls so hydrated without weighing them down. I love how soft and shiny my hair is after using the mask. A great holiday gift to yourself to keep your hair looking great all winter.

L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Mask
A hair mask that provides intensive nourishing and protective care. A natural complex of 5 essential oils – Angelica, Lavender, Geranium, Ylang-ylang and Patchouli – plus sunflower and wheat oils. Particularly recommended for color and chemically-treated hair, this hair mask nourishes and deeply restores capillary fiber. Repairing, stimulating and regenerating, it protects against the damaging effects of hair heat treatments (blow dryer, curling iron, hot rollers etc.) and environmental stresses (sun, pollution etc.). This rich and silky cream leaves your hair shiny, soft, and smooth.

Available for purchase at L’Occitane stores and online at usa.loccitane.com

Hourglass releases a gorgeous new product – check out the Ambient Lighting Palette!

mhu-reviews-1116-8

Ready for the chicest gift of the holiday season? New from Hourglass is Ambient Lighting Palette, a limited edition trio of their best-selling Ambient Lighting Powder collection in one portable and covetable palette. Introduced in spring, the Ambient collection proved an instant hit with clients who embraced the idea of cutting-edge finishing powders that cast you in the perfect light.

How beautiful is this Palette!? It’s beyond gorgeous! Combine the three together for a look you won’t believe. You can create so many gorgeous looks with just these three colors.

Ambient Lighting Palette builds on that success with its curated collection of flattering shades that imbue skin with a multi-dimensional glow. The palette includes one new limited edition shade, as well as two existing shades:

-NEW Incandescent Light: A pearlescent powder that highlights the cheekbones and brightens the complexion with a celestial, holiday glow.

-Dim Light: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with a balance of warm and cool tones.

-Radiant Light: A sun-kissed golden beige powder that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth.

Together, they’re just like having your own personal lighting technician, which is especially vital during the holiday season. The box also includes a bonus 5ml Veil Mineral Primer to create the perfect canvas.

Usage tips by Hourglass Makeup Artist Moani Lee:

“Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette infuses skin with a multi-dimensional luminescence that’s perfect for the party season. Using the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush, dust Dim Light all over the complexion but focus on the center of the face to soften imperfections. Follow by adding Radiant Light as a contour under the cheekbones, on the temples and on either side of the bridge of the nose to add a subtle warmth. Finish off with a light dusting of Incandescent Light on the tops of the cheekbones, under the brow, on the center of the eyelids, the bridge of the nose and the cupid’s bow to brighten the complexion and create a celestial glow. For deeper skin tones, it’s best to test the product on your skin and make adjustments by mixing Radiant Light to add warmth.”

The palette is currently available for $58 on HourglassCosmetics.com and Sephora.com.
