You Can Be AcneFree

Posted on: August 19th, 2014


It’s about that time, Back to School, and just in time for AcneFree Clean Skin Treatments. They have recently introduced 3 new skincare products to their cleansing and treatment line. The “NEW” AcneFree Energizing Treatments include 3-in-1 Acne Wipes, Acne Wash & Scrub and Acne Cleanser. My children tell me that the 3-in-1 Acne Wipes are fabulous. They packed the wipes on a recent vacation and at the end of the day, when they felt that they needed a little extra cleansing, the wipes helped with the dirt and sweat that was built up from being outdoors all day. They like that the 3-in-1 Acne Wipes contain 0.5% Salicylic Acid. They also found that the AcneFree 3-in-1 Acne Wipes worked quite well alone and as a compliment to AcneFree Energizing Cleanser and Energizing Wash & Scrub.

My children enjoy using AcneFree Energizing Treatment products because they contain Benzoyl Peroxide and this formula works very well on their skin. AcneFree Energizing Acne Wash & Scrub contains 2.5% Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide as does the AcneFree Energizing Cleanser. Keep in mind that not everyone can use Benzoyl Peroxide, so please be sure to read the product ingredients before using AcneFree. These 2 products are also formulated with 3 essential ceramides which help repair your skin’s barrier. According to NYC Dermatologist, Joshua Zeichner, MD, “Dermatologists think about the skin barrier function when treating acne. Contrary to what some people might think, the skin of many acne patients is actually sensitive, because it is lacking ceramics.”

AcneFree Wash & Scrub has a thick consistency as AcneFree Cleanser is a light foam and is dispensed through a pump. What they like about these two products is that they both contain Exfoliating Microbeads which offer a light exfoliation therefore, unclogging their pores while cleaning their skin. You will enjoy the fresh invigorating scent of energizing Iced Orange & Mint and you will notice your skin tone improve with each use.  AcneFree Clean Skin Treatments work hard to eliminate impurities on your skin and helps reduce acne break-outs so you can be AcneFree. You can also find AcneFree at drugstores nationwide.

SMB Essentials Presents Lotus Moon and it’s Divine

Posted on: August 4th, 2014


SMB Essentials, Skin*Mind*Body has a line of skincare called Lotus Moon and it is Divine! Ranging from Skin Care to Hair Care, Lotus Moon is a beauty line not to be missed, especially Lotus Moon D20 Hydra Mist.



Being outdoors especially during the hot dry summer months, the weather  can be brutal on your skin. Your face  and neck usually suffers the most and D2o Hydra Mist is the perfect application for sun damaged dry skin. Lotus Moon’s D20 Hydra Mist will hydrate, soothe and heal your skin, bringing it back to life in no time. The fabulous feature of D2O Hydra Mist is that you can use it many different ways. During the hot summer days, I spritz on my face and neck for a cool refreshing feeling. I also spritz after cleansing and before applying my moisturizer.

D20 Hydra Mist can also be used to set your makeup. Seriously, D2o Hydra Mist does just about everything. Lake Louise, formulated D20 Hydra Mist with unique ingredients such as peptide and antioxidants like cactus stem and flower extract helping  you to achieve brighter and well hydrated skin.


Speaking of cleansing, Lotus Moon Lemon Poppy seed powder cleanse is a definite “Must Try”. I love the powder form because it reduces waste and you can use it as a cleanser by itself. Simply tap some powder in the palm of your hand, add water to it  and rub together to create a foam and then wash. You can also add a small amount to your favorite cleanser or toner. Remember to always follow the directions for maximum results.

Lotus Moon Lemon Poppy seed powder cleanse  has a beautiful fresh blend of Ground Corn Meal, Poppy seeds, lemon peel and jojoba beads which also creates a delicate exfoliation. As stated by their website: “SMB Essentials is an ecobeauty, skin care, grooming and nutritional supplements products company. We created the brands: Lotus Moon, Plain Jane Beauty, DetoxRx and SON to address the natural and organic skincare, grooming and wellness needs of women and men.
