MOTIVATION MONDAY

Welp Beauties, it’s MONDAY! For some, that means we have to put on our work clothes, uniforms, scrubs, what ever it is that you put on to leave our comfortable beds and pillows. Booooooo.

Yesterday I was getting my MOTIVATION on at the gym. As well as again today. When it comes to me going to the gym, running near the beach, doing yoga at home, working out at home, there’s one person I envision on how I want my body and fitness energy.

This woman right here!

Seriously, this woman is in her 40s and has rock hard abs! Jealous right now, YES!

Yesterday, I was working out with my work-out friends. My Sole-Sister Joanna and her husband.

Normally we just focus on one body part, like upper body, lower body, leg days, or arm days. But naw, yesterday was a full body workout. What da hell was we thinking?!

I’ve said it once before and I’ll say it again, I’m not an upper body work out kind of gal.

I know I have to do it though. Urg.

I’ll keep doing it even if I don’t want. That’s why I need Joanna to go with me to do arms. She’s the arms type of guy.

If Jennifer Lopez can do it in her 40s, this 30s something girl will keep on.

So until I get to where I want to be, I’ll keep rockin’ on at the gym, doing my yoga at home, running along the water, and working out at home.

WHO IS YOUR MOTIVATIONAL MAVEN?

Until next time Beauties

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream

♥PR Sample♥

What Tatcha has to say about the Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream:

WHAT IT IS:

Rich in anti-inflammatory Indigo, liquid Silk and Squalane, TATCHA’s INDIGO Soothing Silk Hand Moisturizer Cream softens and soothes irritated skin.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT IT:

The stems, leaves and petals of the Indigo plant are steeped in water and fermented to make a concentrated botanical extract. Tryptanthrin and indirubin actives help reduce irritation and promote skin’s natural healing abilities. The natural blue hue disappears upon application. Due to the natural botanical extract, the shade of Indigo may vary; the efficacy of the formulation remains the same.

WHAT SKIN TYPE CAN USE IT:

Any skin type, especially sensitive, inflamed or irritated skin consistent with symptoms of dermatitis, eczema and rosacea.

What I have to say on Tatcha’s Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream:

First off let’s talk about the packaging.

Tatcha soothing hand silk cream

Tatcha has the HANDS DOWN, in my opinion BEST luxury beauty packaging that I’ve encountered. Each product that I’ve received is always beautifully packaged. Along with PR samples and the Tatcha products that I’ve bought, they always come with a hand written note. I don’t know of another company that takes the time to do that with each order. That right there tells me that they really do appreciate us as clients and enjoy what they do.

Color of the cream.

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream

As Wikipedia states: Indigo is a color that is traditionally regarded as a color on the visible spectrum, as well as one of the seven colors of the rainbow: the color between blue and violet.

The Japanese Indigo plant is where it gets its blueish hue from.

Tatcha Indigo

Don’t get discouraged by the color though, it won’t dye your hands. The color disappears as you rub your hands together and massage it in.

The feel/consistency:

It comes out of the beautifully packaged tube smoothly, it’s a semi-thick cream. As the name has silk in the name, it literally melts into your skin as you massage it on your hands and the indigo color dissolves.

Your skin will feel so silky and smooth. With me ALWAYS having my fingernails painted and manicured up, my hands needs to be smooth, nourished, and healthy looking. I also use this to massage into my cuticles.

You only need a little cream to apply. With all of Tatcha’s skin care products, a little goes a long way. Which is great considering the price tag that goes along with it.

Price:

Tatcha 60ml’s of heavenly goodness for $38

Tatcha 10ml’s travel size for $8

Again, this is a luxury skin care line but I don’t mind it because the products are definitely worth it and it comes packaged beautifully.

Tatcha Soothing Silk Hand Cream

Scent:

There is no artificial scents included in any of Tatcha’s products but it does have a soft scented spa-like aroma to them. I love it but my nose can’t figure out what it exactly smells alike too.

OVERALL VERDICT:

HANDS DOWN the most nourishing and soothing hand cream that I own. Even though I received this for free, I would definitely order more of this, as I have with Tatcha’s other products.

With me working in a clinic setting, I’m having to use hospital hand sanitizers throughout the day that’s loaded with drying alcohol in it. Having my handy Tatcha Soothing Silk Hand Cream always soothes my hands.

If you’re on the fence on ordering this, they have a travel size that you can test out first before you order the full size.

HAVE YOU TRIED ANY OF TATCHA’S SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SO FAR?

Until next time,

Konjac facial sponge

100% natural Original Pure Konjac Facial Sponge

konjac facial sponge

MY Konjac Sponge are made exclusively with the konjac fiber, a pure vegetable fiber taken from the root of the Amorphophallus Konjac plant.
Konjac plant, also known as konnyaku potato or elephant yam, is a plant that is native to eastern Asia.
Konjac root is rich in minerals, vitamins, and it has been traditionally used as a beauty treatment for a long time in eastern Asia.

This year Konjac sponges have been all the rage.

But once you pick one up and open it, it first comes as this hard piece of weird looking thing. You wonder, “They expect me to use this on my skin?”

Worry not! These bad boys turn into the softest yet firm piece of material. It just soaks the water up!

What you’re going to do when you open up the package is get it soaked into some water. It starts to expand into a nice sponge. Not your typical sponge though. It’s almost hard to explain how it feels. It’s almost like a very smooth & soft rubbery feel. In a good way.

You can use it by itself with no cleanser or with cleanser. It’s all up to you.

It’s great as an exfoliate. It helps with clearing out your pores and getting that gunk out. It’s cleans your skin so good that your moisturizer just soaks into your skin afterwards.

It’s gentle enough for your whole face and the one I’m using here fits perfectly in my hand to where I can cup it and move it around my face and around my eyes and nose.

Konjac sponge

Excuse my breakouts and close-ups.

About MY Konjac:

  • 100% Natural Sponge + 100% Coloring & Additive Free + 100% Biodegradable
  • Extra Soft + Hypoallergenic & Fragrance Free. Safe for any ages
  • Naturally Sustainable, Leaping Bunny (cruelty free) certified
  • Gently Exfoliates Skin & Cleanses Skin Pores
  • Promotes New Growth of Skin Cells & Naturally Moisturizing

Have you tried Konjac sponges yet?

 Zoya Blair Nail Polish

Blair by Zoya

If you’re looking for some great Fall shades to dress up your fingernails, than Blair by Zoya is one you should pick up.

Blair by Zoya can be best described as a blackened red wine with a satiny smooth metallic shimmer. This cool-toned, vampy shade has a undeniably mesmerizing depth!

The picture above is without the camera flash.

I always tend to apply two coats of nail polish, that way I get the true to bottle color.

After my two coats of Zoya Blair, I applied my Seche Vite top coat. Seriously, if you don’t have Seche Vite top coat, you are definitely wasting time sitting pretty while you wait for your nails to dry. I’m jus’ sayin’!

Below is with the camera flash and you can see the shimmer in the Blair nail polish.

You can purchase Zoya’s Blair at Zoya online, your local Ulta, or at Amazon.

 

What Fall colors are y’all gonna be rockin’ this season?

ABOUT ZOYA NAIL POLISH & TREATMENT

Art of Beauty was founded in 1986 by Zoya and Michael Reyzis. They had a shared vision, which evolved from a small nail salon into a spa focusing on natural nails, skin care and alternative European herbal treatments. Today, the company has grown to become a manufacturer of the most innovative professional beauty products ever created. Our brands include Zoya, Qtica, Smart Spa and Zoom.

Zoya, originally a classical pianist in Russia, earned her Cosmetology license in 1979 when she and her husband Michael immigrated to the United States. While pianist jobs were limited, the world of cosmetology offered a new profession and a means by which to build a new career. Through Zoya’s hard work, and a demand for quality and healthy, natural ingredients for her clients, it became evident that there was a need for the perfect products. Responding to his wife’s requests. Michael, an advanced chemist, developed and patented unique products such as anti-wrinkle treatments and shampoo and conditioning treatments for the salon & spa. He also created the first working fast drying topcoat and the longest wearing, toxin free natural nail polish, revolutionizing the nail industry.

Today, Zoya, Michael and everyone at Art of Beauty focus on creating the highest quality products available to professional salons and spas. Through brands like ZOYA Nail Lacquers, QTICA Treatments and QTICA SMART SPA, Art of Beauty offers salons and spas superior quality, convenience and incredible value. As the first to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) from its formulations, Art of Beauty maintains its focus on the health and well being of salons, spas and consumers.
