Two John Masters Organics products I’m loving right now!

Embrace your inner green goddess and keep toxins out of your hair and off your skin with 100% organic beauty products from John Masters Organics. Not only are they held to an impressive self-imposed organic standard, these eight products are certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture, meaning that each product has met the strict USDA edible food standards to ensure that every ingredient is nothing short of incredibly organic.

I’ve tried the John Masters Organics Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil, and the Lip Calm. Oh dear God they are heavenly! The facial oil feels absolutely amazing on a freshly-washed face. I put on a couple drops, and smooth it over my face, and I feel like my skin takes a big huge sigh of relief. It just feels so amazing on!

Their Lip Calm is also an amazing product. There are SO MANY chapsticks out there that TASTE funky. You know the culprit’s. I am always nervous when I try a new chapstick – but this one was a huge relief! It’s slightly lemony, and smooth and cooling. It feels amazing, and I’m finding myself sticking it in my pocket to carry around with me all the time. I love it!

PICS: Kim Kardashian gets a “blood facial”

Kim Kardashian has taken her beauty routine to a whole new level! The reality star went to a crazy extreme to achieve good skin on Sunday’s episode of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’.

Taking her BFF Jonathan Cheban’s advice, the 32-year-old underwent a “blood facial.”

For the procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets, and then re-apply the blood to the skin via tiny needles.

For the out-there procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets and then apply the blood onto the via tiny needles. “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” the now-pregnant Kim reasoned.

The experience may not have been worth it, however. “Oh my god! I will never get a facelift if it feels like that.” On Sunday, she tweeted a pic from the experience. “Look what @jonathancheban did to me!”

Here’s more from Huff Po:

The made-for-horror movie cosmetic procedure is gaining popularity in the U.S. because it’s an “organic alternative to those that require chemical injections,” according to Dr. Sam Lam, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Dallas, Texas.

“The patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the skin preceded by a laser treatment and followed by a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes,” explains Dr. Lam. “The growth factors in the platelet rich plasma reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.”

On the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” she gives us an up-close view of the vampire facial. With her BFF Jonathan Cheban by her side, Kimmy can’t help but scream out over the agonizing buzzing of the laser: “Oww! That hurts so badly.”

Would you do a vampire facial??

Introducing Three Amazing Votre Vu Products!

Le Joli Crayon, Smudge & Set Soft Eye Liner:

Brigitte Bardot educated the world about the allure of eyeliner … and now Le Joli Crayon is here to teach you. Draw on the drama with this mistake-proof gel pencil that feels like a liquid liner, but allows you time to feather and smudge before it sets. Le Joli Crayon’s smart sponge blending tip wouldn’t dare tug or tear at your delicate eyelid. Rather, this budge-proof, smudge-proof and melt-proof liner is all about prevention and retention. Could this be the real French paradox? A pretty eyeliner that is so soft on your skin, yet strong enough to provide the intensity of a liquid liner in one simple stroke?

Rich in mineral pigments, anti-aging fruit extracts, and vitamin E, this super-conditioning, proprietary formula nourishes and hydrates the fragile eye area while treating it with healing free-radical fighters. Botanically harvested candelilla wax provides both an effortless glide and water-resistant layer that seals in the peeper pigment’s mineral-color blend. As easy to remove as it is to apply, this long-lasting, ophthalmologist-tested formula is the ultimate on-the-go liner.

I absolutely LOVE this eye liner. It glides on like a dream, seriously. It is beautiful, and it lasts forever. If I had a list of favorite eye-liners, this one would be on top. This really is an amazing product!!

Only $23!

Your skin takes center stage with a kick of color from Vu-On Rouge sheer moisture tint. Just a simple swish of this multi-tasking pop-up stick bestows a fetching and flirty flush to cheeks, lips, lids and facial contours.

Blended with hydrating shea and exotic antioxidant-rich mango seed butters, Vu’s ravishing rouge spreads smoothly over skin, creating a dewy luster and irresistible airbrushed finish. Without creasing or caking, this long-wearing plant-based pigment evokes renewed vitality to your visage and wouldn’t dare settle into fine lines. Skin-conditioning jojoba and castor seed oils step in for a finished formula that naturally flatters, stabilizes and protects.

Available in three shades to complement every complexion, Vu-On Rouge can be worn alone or over Love Me Deux tinted moisturizer. To set, dab on protective Belle Poudre for a look that wears long after the cabaret’s last dance.

‘Girls’ actress Allison Williams teams up with Simple Skincare!

How many of you ladies out there watch ‘Girls’? I have to admit I am obsessed with the show. I know it’s a bit out of my age range – the show definitely is for a different generation (girls born in the 90′s, not the 70′s, like me). But that doesn’t mean I enjoy it any less. One thing I will say with 100% certainty, is that I am SO HAPPY that I am NOT a single girl in NYC these days. It looks like hell, to me. Give me my sweats, suburbia, and a gorgeous husband that I love – any day!

Anyway, one of the girls of ‘Girls’ has just signed on with Simple Skincare. The gorgeous Allison Williams helps launch a new skincare line! “As a longtime fan of Simple skincare, I was so excited when they approached me about becoming their brand ambassador,” said Williams. “I love that their products keep my skin healthy-looking, without irritating it, because Simple is made for sensitive skin, like mine.”
