Why Try A New Skincare? Meet PCA Skin

Hi ya Gorgeous!Happy Monday! I love a Monday! I get so much accomplished on a Monday! Today is no different! I’m busy prepping for the American Film Market with several new projects that are ripe for distribution and then a product launch on a pet side project! Woot!

Today I have a skin care introduction to you for Arizona’s own skincare brand, PCA Skin.

Why try a new skincare? Because I think the skin, like the hair, can build up a memory and tolerance to products and stop working as well as they did in the beginning. So, I’m testing a new serum, retinol and moisturizer from PCA Skin.

I found the product recommendations for my skin using the consultation tool on the website – but – felt like their recommendation for a moisturizer would be too light for me, so I got the heavier product in their line. Even that is light compared to what I am used to!

I’ve got a video for you too! Enjoy!  So far, I’m loving how active the products feel on my skin meaning the retinol has me a bit pink and the serum gives a tightening feel.  Get your own to try by visiting their website: http://pcaskin.com

FACE atelier Ultra Skin – My Review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Say hello and welcome to the month of August! This year, 2017, is now officially more than half over and Christmas is only 146 days away.

With that in mind and upcoming holiday events and photos – it may be time to try a new face product, so meet FACE atelier Ultra skin foundation.

Many many thanks to them for sending me a sample in the color 6.  I love the lightweight feel and  texture. The finish is beautiful and dries down to a soft powder that can be built up from sheer to full coverage. I really like the look and  feel, though, I experienced a series of pimples and breakouts along my lower cheeks and jawline.

Gack! I really like the product but won’t be able to continue using it because it took a full week to heal the breakout and I had to work like crazy during that time and I can’t risk another breakout. I know for me, when I saw that the silicone was a major ingredient in this PETA approved product, I knew right then that I was risking a pimple or two.

It’s worth a try, and a sample can be purchased from their website so you can try it before committing to the $50.00 full size price.

Meet Ultra Skin – the ultimate lightweight foundation!  Its
silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin
finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflé-like
texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a
foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising
performance.  Ultra Skin’s 11 shades cover the lightest to richest
complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation.
There are three new shades – .5, 8.5,11.5 – that can be also used to
adjust Ultra Foundation shades.
No primer needed!  It’s built into Ultra Skin’s
sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing
the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn’t
need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it’s ideal
for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Read more about silicones.
Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the
FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s
beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube
make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types,
water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid
and arid climates.

3 Ways to Renew Your Tired Summer Self with Arbonne Rescue & Renew

Hi ya Gorgeous,I am in Arizona, and though it is hot and  feels every bit of  summer, the school year has begun and as   a Mom, the family schedule really revolves around the school year so we are back on a stricter schedule. Sigh.

This summer has been fun and epic with adventures and travel, college courses for my cub and making new friends.

I just received  some samples of the new Arbonne Rescue & Renew products made for rejuvenating   one self in at home spa treatments that are simple to  work into daily life.

First, the Detox Bath Soak. I do not take baths, like ever because it’s a vaginal yeast infection waiting to happen. If you do take baths, enjoy! Or if you are a bath taker and in a hurry, no time for all that tub filling, simply plug that tub up while you are showering and put a shake or two of these salts infused with grapefruit, tangerine, lavender juniper berry, ginger, orange and rosemary.

The water will fill around your feet and give you the aromatherapy on rising steam from a shower. Bada boom bada bing – a quick refreshing!

For the shower, use the Rescue & Renew detox wash infused with orange and grapefruit.  This has a light lather and rinses clean on the skin. It has a fresh and invigorating scent to it.

I like the product and love that Arbonne is vegan, natural, recycles and helps women builds businesses from their homes!  To get Arbonne, you either need to register on the website as a client or find a representative near you to order through.

Finally, I got a box of samples of the Rescue & Renew Detox gelee. Truth. I didn’t know what these were when I opened them.

The back of the box instructions said to apply regularly morning  and evening or after sports, exercise or sun exposure. So I opened a tube up and rubbed it all over my face. Talk about tingly. Really tingly. Don’t get this near your eyes and I definitely do not think that this is an anti-aging treatment to “rescue & renew” signs of aging.  In fact, I think it more of a sport muscle rub?

I like the light gel, and the scent, and after my next  run I will rub some on and see how that works versus trying to use it as a face serum!

Thank you Arbonne for the samples and remember to get yours from your local Arbonne independent consultant! Find one at www.arbonne.com

Microdermabrasion : the benefits and how it works!

Hey Gorgeous!

I’ve got to tell you about the value and benefit of microdermabrasion plus a great place to get your treatments such as Sk:N!

Read more….

Microdermabrasion: The Benefits And How It Works

There are numerous benefits to microdermabrasion and this article looks at what it is and how it works – read on and get an idea if it could help you.

Microdermabrasion Benefits

When it comes to improving the look and feel of skin, microdermabrasion delivers stunning result, but does depend on the aesthetician’s skill. To get the best results, book your appointment with someone who comes highly recommended.

It takes time to get great results, so plan on undergoing treatments in series. The number required will depend upon the condition of your skin and your skin type. Typically, treatment plans include six treatments scheduled two weeks apart.



The machine used for microdermabrasion can be fine-tuned, which means that having sensitive skin isn’t a problem. When it comes to this procedure, more is not necessarily better. Doctors with large practices might have bigger machines, but they are absolutely necessary.

Now let’s look at what is microdermabrasion

Typical pricing for a single treatment runs from $100 to $150. Some spas offer a special: With five treatments, you can often get the sixth one for free. There is no recovery period required after your treatment which typically take a half of an hour from start to finish. It’s easy to pop out from work, get your “lunchtime peel,” and then immediately resume your day.

On a cautionary note, it’s important to remember that the skin’s outer layer has one main job: To protect your underlying skin. That’s why you’ll want to stay out of the sun for a while. Vigorous exercise shortly after the procedure is not recommended. Even when the weather is cloudy, be prepared to put on a gentle sunscreen for further protection.

Home microdermabrasion kits work more like a skin scrub, so you shouldn’t expect to get the same results as you would from a professional. With these kits, it’s easy to irritate your skin if you overdo it.

How Microdermabrasion Is Done

The microdermabrasion machine uses a compressor to draw air in through the attached wand. A vacuum is created when the wand makes skin contact. Corundum crystals (aluminum oxide) are second in hardness only to diamonds. These crystals literally pick up dead skin cells as they are blasted across the surface of the skin. Finally, both crystals and dead skin are pulled up and away through a separate tube within the wand to be disposed of.

The aesthetician determines how deep the exfoliation should be. To control this aspect, both the crystal flow and the vacuum strength can be adjusted. Most of the time, only two passes are needed. However, an additional one may be used when scars or brown spots are treated.

The process of microdermabrasion with crystals is not painful, but it can be uncomfortable. Sensitive tissue of the nose or mouth regions might present a problem. Throughout the entire treatment, your aesthetician will monitor your pain levels. Be sure to tell her if you experience pain during the procedure.




After the treatment, your face will appear to be red. This is because trace amounts of the crystal will be left behind and change the appearance of your face tone. To prevent damage to your eyes during the process, they should be shielded.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is similar to the crystal method in some ways. The hand-held wand uses a vacuum. However, there are no crystals moving through the want and removing dead skin cells. Instead, the tip itself does the exfoliation while the vacuum pulls the skin cells away once they are removed. Tips come with different roughness grades and the best one for your skin type will be chosen.

Many people find that the diamond-tip tool is more comfortable than the crystal method. Both achieve similar results. In general, for people with sensitive skin, the diamond-tip tool is the tool of choice.

It’s recommended by dermatologists, pediatricians and physicians for the care of skin conditions.
Yes, I showered with it and it was a nice lather, not too foamy yet not flat either. I suppose if you have rosacea, eczema and other dermal issues that this would be a good fit for you. There are many posts online with reviews about the product so Google if you would like specific information.
As for me, it was a good wash and I’m glad to have tried it.

As you can see in the photo, the new studio is still under construction and I’m working from a temporary space. Oy the lighting!
