Beautifying from the inside

I love luxurious creams, masks, peels, scrubs, serums, you name it, I’ll try it. But, I have a new find that’s really making a difference.  How do I know?  Well, I haven’t told anyone about it, and I’m getting compliments on my skin even from my mother no less.

What is it you ask?  Yogi Skin Detox Tea.

I’ve been drinking it for about a month now.  I have a cup or two in the morning with breakfast.  I will tell you it has a fruity taste, but it’s not at all unpleasant.  Sometimes, I add a green tea bag to the teapot too if I’m not feeling fruity first thing in the morning.
I had read the reviews online rather skeptically, but was intrigued nonetheless.  So I gave it a try, and I do seem to be glowing, which is no small feat some days.

Let me know what you think if you try it.


In my bag now: MyChelle Little Kisses

When I find things I like, I just have to share.  Lately, I’ve been loving MyChelle’s Mineral Little Kisses in Beaujolais. It’s the perfect color for fall.

  MyChelle Minerals Little Kisses Beaujolais is a tube lipstick that goes beyond the tinted lip balm category. The color is a warm matte mauve with flirtatious pink undertones.
I love the way it seems to last on my lips, sort of like a stain.  It goes on a little dry unlike a true creamy lipstick, so sometimes I add a clear gloss over it or just rub my lips together a few times. It’s healthy, safe, petroleum and lead-free. And it contains natural ingredients like castor seed oil, beeswax, and passion fruit extract.

I like that I can tuck it in my bag and just dab it on when I want a little color, but not have the fuss of lipstick.

I got mine at the whole food store downtown, but I’ve seen it online for about $8.00.
Little kisses come in these colors too:

I’m going to get the garnet next.  Will let you know what I think.
