Beautiful eye-lashes are just a few strokes away with CLAUDIO RIAZ Instant Lash Touch Mascara. This fabulous mascara was formulated to condition your lashes while giving them a fuller, longer and softer lash. Instant Lash Touch Mascara features Hyaluronic Acid twhich helps to improve the condition of your lashes.  As you can see from my daughter’s photo below, her lashes look stunning.

She said that she was excited to try CLAUDIO RIAZ Instant Lash Touch Mascara. My daughter also said, “The application was fast and easy. It took a little longer to dry than most mascaras I use but once it dried, CLAUDIO RIAZ Instant Lash Touch Mascara lasted the longest. There was no need to touch up, the application lasted throughout the day.  I like that feature in a mascara.”

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.

Skindinivia Makeup Primer Spray, Does it Work? It DOES!

Posted on: July 25th, 2014


I was recently given a lesson on makeup primers by my 18 year old daughter. She is extremely passionate about her primers. That’s probably why her make-up always looks fantastic. She uses Skindinavia’s No More Shine Makeup Finish and was excited to learn about their newest formulas, Makeup Primer Spray and Makeup Primer Spray Oil Control. 

I told my daughter I was going to put Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray to the test. I recently had an outdoor event and wanted to use a little make-up. I Sprayed the ultra fine mist (just a few pumps) onto my face and a few minutes later applied a bit of foundation and a little loose powder. I was amazed at the results. I might have felt warm from the sun but my face looked and felt great. Skindinavia’s ultra-fine mist really does control shine for up to 16 hours and absorbs excess oil. My face remained dry throughout the day. Skindinavia’s award-winning formula is designed to keep your makeup dry and flawless.

Skindinavia’s Flawless Facts: 90% of users said their “makeup stayed looking matte for the entire day”;  85% of users prefer The Makeup Finishing Spray – Oil Control over powder; Skindinavia’s own patented Temperature Control Technology ® helps prevent the appearance of shine.

Skindinavia Makeup Primers are Silicone-free helping to create a breathable barrier between skin and makeup. All SKINDINAVIA products are oil, paraben and sulfate-free. Each product is tested for sensitive skin. Skindinivia’s NEW Makup Primer Spray has been approved in my house, try it…you wil love it!




SEBAMED…It Sounds Medicinal but it’s Truly Magical

Posted on: July 23rd, 2014


I know so many people who have sensitive skin. It seems like the list is growing. Many people I have talked to tell me their skin is getting more sensitive and drier as they get older. I recommend Sebamed Moistuizing Face Cream. This face cream is completely formulated for sensitive and dry skin.

I already use Sebamed Hand and Nail Balm and find the face cream equally hydrating if not, more so. Sebamed Moistuizing Face Cream is slightly richer than face creams I have used in the past but it spreads easily, is not greasy and absorbs quickly. I apply the face cream at night after cleansing and I can still feel the softness of my skin in the morning.

Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream was developed by dermatologists  and is hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. Sebamed Moistuizing Face Cream is the perect choice for sensitive skin sufferers. Sebamed Moistuizing Face Cream is formulated with vitamin E which will naturally guard against free radicals which can cause premature aging.


While I am enjoying the Sebamed Moistuizing Face Cream, my oldest daughter is enjoying Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam. Why wouldn’t she? I even tried it myself and I love the silky soft foam that gently glides onto your face and neck. Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam is an antibacterial alkali free foam, designed to deeply cleanse pores helping to reduce pimples, blackheads and other skin irritations without drying your skin.

Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam is “adjusted to the skin?s natural pH value of 5.5, protecting and supporting the biological barrier function of the skin?s acid mantle to help prevent new pimples from forming.” My daughter says her face and skin feel clean and refreshed.

Yu-Be Cream is the Ultimate for Achieving Soft and Silky Skin

Posted on: July 16th, 2014


You will have the ultimate skin softening experience with Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. Yu-Be offers some amazing skincare products including Foaming Skin Polish, Lip Balm Heel and Elbow Repair Kit. I am loving Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream which is Japan’s best-selling skincare product. This amazing cream is formulated with vitamin E, vitamin B2 and Camphor. Try massaging some of Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream onto your elbows, shins (that’s where I need it the most) and hands. Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream is sure to soothe dry, chapped and damaged skin anywhere on your body.

As stated by Yu-Be it was “Invented in 1957, its all-natural, non-petroleum formula makes it ideal for all skin types, protecting against harmful conditions like extreme cold, wind and heat that can irritate and damage the skin. Yu-Be is so effective against these harsh conditions that it’s even trusted by world-class mountain climbers. It even protects against conditions like diaper rash and frost bite.”

The ingredients in Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream that give your skin the ultimate in softmess is the combination of Glycerin and all-natural ingredients like Vitamin E and B2. Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream is the perfect solution for dry skin anywhere on your body, face, lips, arms, legs, feet, really anywhere. Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream has a fabulous camphor scent that is quite exhilerating and disappears quickly into your skin without leaving a greasy residue.


Celebrity nail artist for the likes of Katy Perry, Pink, Rachael Ray and Allison Williams, Pattie Yankee’s go-to hand and cuticle moisturizer is Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream. “I love how hydrating it is,” says Pattie, “not only does it instantly replenish moisture, it is silky and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.” Yu-Be’s Moisturizing Cream is a concentrated glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with vitamin E and B2, sodium hyaluronate and camphor. Yu-Be’s ultra-healing capabilities are largely due to is high glycerin content which helps skin attract and retain moisture.

In order to keep cuticles in check, Pattie also recommends the following:

1. After showering, using your fingers, push cuticles back when they are still wet. This will train them to stay back.

2. Apply a high glycerin based cream, like Yu-Be’s, to hands and cuticles throughout the day, especially after showering and before bed.

3. Never cut cuticles as this will cause the skin to grow back thicker and harder – cuticles also seal in moisture and block germs out of the body. Cuticle cutting is actually illegal in salons in some states, including New York as it is considered a medical procedure.
