Check out Davines Authentic Replenishing Butter!

More and more often I’m finding hair products that allow you to apply them to your hair before you even step into the shower. I really like this idea, because who has 10-15 minutes to spare waiting INSIDE the shower while your deep-conditioner goes to work? (Please tell me I’m not the only one…)

Davines has developed an amazing Authentic Replenishing Butter that’s so amazing – so heavenly – you can apply it to your face, hair OR body! A 3-in-1 product! Love it!

This sensuous butter contains 98% natural origin ingredients and organically grown safflower oil. The butter is free from parabens, silicones, artificial colours and PEG. The hair is soft, shiny, silky and easy to control, the face and body skin, like the hands, is nourished and velvety.

This product really is truly perfect. And the jar is so pretty! Just stick a bow on it – and call it good for Christmas!

HOW TO USE:

Hair: Apply on dry hair before shampoo, leave on for at least 5 minutes. Rinse and proceed with shampoo. Face And body: Apply until fully absorbed.

NATURAL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:

  • Organic Carthame oil - for anti-oxidant action and skin regeneration
  • Organic Jojoba oil - polishes and softnes and soothes;
  • Organic Sesame oil - rich in proteins and aminoacids, with replanishing action.

Introducing 100% Pure products!

100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.

100% Pure products are 100% animal-cruelty FREE!

We love animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals which is why none of our formulas are ever tested on animals (everything we use is food grade and does not require testing, whereas chemical ingredients must be tested). All our makeup brushes are from synthetic fibers. No animals were hurt for their fur and no animals were hurt for any of our ingredients (the only animal ingredient we use is cruelty free honey).

Their products are naturally fragranced!

Perfumes and fragrances are synthetic chemicals that do not have any medicinal or aroma therapeutic value. 100% Pure products smell delicious because what you smell is real. The wonderful aromas in 100% Pure products are from real fruits, pure essential oils, and pure absolutes. There are never any synthetic fragrances or anything artificial in 100% Pure products.

100% Pure’s products are based on antioxidants!

Every moment, we are slowly deteriorating. Free radicals such as the sun, smog, smoke, cigarettes, etc. attack us, causing aging, wrinkles, and cancer. ONLY Antioxidants protect us, fighting off the damaging free radicals. Sun block is important because it blocks up to 80% of UV rays, but sun blocks DO NOT protect against other free radicals. Your skin needs antioxidants for sun protection and protection against all damaging free radicals.

What does 100% Pure mean?

There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. 100% Pure products are truly 100% Pure. That means there are no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins. Truly health food for your skin.

I’ve been able to get my hands on a couple products, and I absolutely love them! I’m shocked how full of fragrance they are, and naturally! I love the body wash. It’s thin, so you’ll want a sponge – but you won’t be sorry. It smells and feels heavenly!

100% Pure Key Lime Hydrating Body Wash:  Hydrating body wash leaves you sparkling clean and refreshed while nourishing your skin with vitamins, antioxidants and skin brightening fruits. No harsh detergents, no synthetic chemicals, no artificial fragrances or any other toxins that can strip, irritate or dehydrate your delicate skin. Truly, 100% Pure. $15

I love the body cream. It feels really amazing on your skin, and it absorbs completely. Your skin doesn’t have a heavy feeling after you use it. You can almost feel the antioxidants kicking in when you use it. It’s really fantastic.

Strawberry Lemonade Nourishing Body Cream: Highly nourishing, luxurious cream concentrated with potent anti-aging antioxidants, vitamins, skin softening fruit oils and moisturizing cocoa and avocado butters. Delicious smelling body cream will immediately hydrate, soften and feed your skin nutrients for a healthy, glowing complexion. Truly, 100% Pure – never any artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, toxic preservatives, or any other unsafe ingredients. Made only with the highest quality, organic nutrients for your skin. $15

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BODY SCRUB. I don’t know what it is – maybe the coffee in it? It just puts you in a good mood. You feel so amazing after you try it, seriously – you are gonna die. LOVE THIS STUFF. It feels amazing!

Delicious Cocoa Kona Coffee body scrub instantly makes your skin soft, smooth, healthy, glowing and vibrant. Highly concentrated with skin nourishing ingredients and powerful anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins. Organic rosehip and apricot oils deeply moisturize and nourish. Truly, 100% Pure- no synthetic chemicals, no artificial fragrances, no preservatives, no alcohol or any other toxins. $25

Palmer’s, the skin tone experts behind Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula facial care products, is helping women everywhere to achieve a flawless complexion with the launch of two new skin care items – the Cocoa Butter Formula® Eventone® BB Cream and Cocoa Butter Formula® Eventone® Dark Spot Corrector. Both products feature Palmer’s exclusive Tone Enhancing Complex, an advanced blend of tone perfecting ingredients including Cocoa Butter, Niacinamide, Soy, Licorice Extract, Synovea and Vitamin C.

The Tone Enhancing Complex, combined with mineral pigment, moisturizes, primes, evens skin tone and provides SPF 15 sun protection, all in one convenient tube. The result is skin that is flawlessly beautiful, with a bright, radiant glow. Available in two universally flattering shades, light/fair and medium/dark, the formula also can be used as a primer for foundation or on its own for lightweight coverage.

The Dark Spot Corrector ($15) is a pigment-perfecting concentrate that delivers a dose of key active skin-lightening ingredients to even tone and reveal a more radiant complexion. The result is healthy, luminous skin with that gorgeous lit-from-within look. This powerful complex, combined with the pigment-perfecting Japanese Songyi Mushroom Extract, keeps skin looking brighter and more radiant. Age spots, dark spots, post-acne scars and sun damage are visibly diminished to reveal an even more beautiful you!

For yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeears I have used Palmer’s Cocoa Butter. I love their products, especially their cocoa butter lotion. I have used it for so many years, started back when I was pregnant with my sons (awesome!). I was so excited to get these products, and give them a try. I love the natural ingredients they use – and so far I can tell that I love the way my skin feels when I use it! I have sun spots on my cheeks and I’m hoping this lotion really helps even out my skin tone. So far so good!

NEW CONTEST! Five winners will win a Joey New York product!

Hey all! I wanted to introduce you to 20 year skincare veteran Joey Chancis, founder of Joey New York Beauty, who will be appearing on ShopNBC this week to introduce to millions of viewers the new, all-natural Joey New York Beauty collection.

Joey will be on ShopNBC TODAY at 3:30PM and 8:30PM!

Joey New York, which Joey Chancis co-founded with her mother in 1994, took a brief hiatus from the market in order to undergo all-natural reformulations. Now Joey New York has returned to the beauty market with this formidable lineup of instant skin care fixes – all enhanced with the natural anti-aging benefits of Young Green Coconut Water:

Bye Bye Blackheads ($28): This powerful gel formula banishes blackheads and breakouts in just 60 seconds. Coconut water replenishes necessary nutrients to the skin, Salicylic Acid provides gentle exfoliating benefits, while antioxidant vitamin E restores skin’s suppleness.

Young Coconut Water Complex Day Gel & Night Cream Eye Duo ($44): This eye duo is an around-the-clock anti-aging system that targets puffiness and dark circles. Lift-Up Day Eye Gel is a cooling, energizing eye area firmer that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and Firm and Tone Night Eye Cream has two uses: either apply to cleansed skin before bed and use as an anti-aging night treatment, or layer on top of the Day Gel for a quick-fix if you feel you are drooping at the end of the day.

Correct-A-Line for Face And Eyes ($36): An all-natural instant line filler that diminishes the appearance of imperfections while offering lush hydration. The multi-tasking formula revitalizes tired, dull skin and doubles as a primer to provide a shine-free finish.

Keep It Up ($42): This ultra-lightweight, protein-rich serum utilizes Green Coconut Water, stimulating Indian Ginseng Extract and peptides to lift and firm skin.

Line Up ($36): An advanced firming formulation that is developed with hydrolyzed collagen, which tightens skin and increases its suppleness, as well as restorative Young Green Coconut Water and luxurious Indian Ginseng Extract.

PEEL-Off Masque ($28): This powerful peel digs deep to remove dirt, debris and other deep-seeded impurities beneath the skin’s surface while smoothing wrinkles at the same time. Green Coconut Water and Indian Ginseng refresh and restore tired, dull skin, while calming vitamin E soothes any redness or irritation. It’s easy (and fun!) to peel off this luxe masque in one piece to reveal a newly revitalized complexion.
