Certified Fabulous team member Grayce had the pleasure of trying a few of her products! 

KORA Cream Cleanser

Kora Cream Cleanser is enriched with Noni Extract, Aloe, and Sandalwood that is designed to cleanse and nourish the skin. "It was gentle yet effective leaving my skin feeling clean and hydrated." It is very easy to use, you just apply a small amount to damp skin and massage it in to your face then rinse it off with warm water. This cleanser also works beautifully with a gentle cleansing brush. This cream cleanser has a milky whitish color and is enriched with nutrients such as rose hips, avocado and macadamia nut oils. The Sandalwood gives it a wonderful warm scent. This cleanser was designed for all skin types. The Kora Cream Cleanser retails for $52.

  • Difference between “Natural” and “Organic” Products

    “Natural” products don’t have any regulation, so any company can name their products “natural” if they have a few ingredients that come from the earth. Natural products range from some pretty good companies trying to do the right thing to hundreds of personal care companies that are simply using the term “natural” for marketing purposes.
    However, “Organic” goes way beyond “Natural”.
    If a product is labeled Organic on the front of the package and sold in the State of California, which has extremely rigorous organic regulations, then the products must contain USDA certified organic ingredients from a farm that uses a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides or fertilizers.

    Did you know that: Your Skin Absorbs over 64% of what is placed on it.

    Think about it … physicians prescribe prescription “patches” that are readily absorbed through the skin … hmmm … but what about your moisturizer? Do you know that most conventional beauty products contain pesticides, methyl, butyl and propyl parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, petroleum, sulfates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, GMO, silicones, artificial dyes or fragrances, formaldehyde, and more. Do you really want all these on your skin?

    Juice Beauty

    I have been a fan of the Juice Beauty brand since I first tried the Blemish Clearing Serum. If you haven't tried that, you must!! When I heard they had a makeup line I was anxious to try it! If the facts of using organic products haven't convinced you then trying this makeup collection out for yourself will! You can feel the difference literally on your skin and feel better about putting this makeup on knowing it will improve skin's overall appearance.

Life is weird.  It just is, let’s face it.  I was speaking to my office mate Amy a few weeks ago about an interesting skin care regime her daughter was trying, using oils as a cleanser.  I was intrigued, and wondered how using oils could effectively cleanse your skin.  Although using oils would of course be the ultimate in all-natural skin care, would it leave my already shiny forehead a grease pit?? Could just oil effectively cleanse my skin, removing dirt and excess oil?? So funny that within the week I was introduced to the Boots Botanics line.  And now I am a believer.

Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm is the coolest, and most effective all natural facial cleanser I have tried to date.  Packaged in a 2oz jar, this product upon first view looks like refrigerated olive oil.  It is literally made of organic oils. Super simple ingredients such as Olive oil, Jojoba oil, Shea butter, Sweet almond oil, Rose seed oil, Geranium flower oil, Bergamot fruit oil and Lemon oil make up this great cleanser, which is 97% organic.  Included with your jar of fabulous cleanser, is a super handy muslin cloth.

Boots Botanics Organic Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm 4.14.14 Certified Fabulous 2

Directions state to massage the Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm all over your face and neck. I must say, at first this was a weird experience.  I am used to a foaming cleanser. Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm applies as solid oil, and initially the greasy feeling is quite bizarre, although not unpleasant.  Directions the tell you to soak the muslin cloth in warm water, and apply as a compress over face and neck to draw out impurities.  I must say, the sensation of the warm cloth over the oil was amazing; the fragrance of this balm is entirely soothing.  I was extremely impressed at the ease in removing the balm from my face.  Using the muslin cloth to massage the balm off helps to exfoliate the skin.  The directions then advise to soak the cloth in cool water and apply as a compress to close pores.  I was amazed at how soft and smooth my skin felt after completing this simple routine.  I noticed immediately my complexion appeared smoother and brighter.  I felt as though the oils were truly able to effectively cleanse my skin, removing dirt and oil, without drying my skin out.    I am sold, and am ditching my standard foaming cleanser which always seems to leave my face tight and dry.  Boots Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm left my skin feeling clean, but soft, supple and smooth.  Love it!!

Natural Ingredients are wonderful. With all of the toxins we are exposed to daily, it is nice to know that certain skin care companies are using only the best organic and natural ingredients in their products. It is important to consider the safety of products, not only for us, but for children as well. Two sisters, Jess and Whitney of Cashmere Washington have not only perfected the art of making wonderful, all natural skincare products, their products are affordable making them accessible to any consumer.

After struggling for years with acne and rosacea, older sister Jess developed an interest in making her own skincare after experiencing frustration with the high price of effective skincare. Younger sister Whitney worked for years as a skincare consultant, but found it difficult to find products which wouldn't flare up her eczema or cause severe allergic reactions. The two sisters turned to nature for help, and Moody Sisters Skincare was born. The two paired up, and developed an entire line of skincare and beauty products that are not only all-natural, but also completely chemical and paraben free.

I absolutely love the Moody Sisters: Tinted Lip Balm which is available in five different shades: Rose, Berry, Bronze, Coral (my favorite) and Pink. These lip balms come in a cool oval tube. I love the rustic packaging; it is really obvious that these products are handmade in small batches, allowing for a higher quality lip balm.  Made with simple ingredients: Beeswax, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Apricot Kernal Oil, Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Mica, Vitamin E and Essential Oils. This lip balm is so natural that I gave my 6-year old (going on 16 year-old) the pink as her “makeup.” These lip balms are tinted enough to tickle her making her believe it was her “lipstick.” These lip balms are perfect for everyday use, and are super moisturizing. I urge you to try, or at least pick one up for your little girl who is dying to wear makeup :)

Moody Sisters organic skincare tinted lip balm

I also had the pleasure of using the Moody Sisters: Heat Rub. It is no secret that I am a gym rat (a Crossfit addict to be specific), so I am no stranger to tired, sore, achy muscles. Many heat rubs are too harsh for my dry, sensitive skin. The Moody Sisters Heat rub is full of all natural warming and soothing essential oils. Unlike many other muscle rubs which have a medicinal fragrance, The Moody Sisters Heat Rub smells amazing. Made with arnica oil, a wonderful healing natural ingredient, as well as cinnamon, peppermint and juniper berry, this product worked wonders on my aches and pains. I applied it to my boyfriend’s back as well, and he found this heated rub to be extremely relaxing.

Josie Maran organic argan oil hair body beauty certified fabulous

Its no secret I love Argan Oil! My hair is so dry and frizzy, and Argan Oil is so readily absorbed.  So when I received Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light, I was thrilled to slather it through my hair. That is, until Jessica informed me that this product is to be used on my FACE, haha!! After feeling like a complete fool (although it worked wonders in my hair as well, FYI), I tried on my face and was delighted with the results. You really only need to use the barest amount of product, and it absorbed readily leaving my skin soft and silky. On the bottle it is indicated for use for everything from “cuticles to split ends.” What I loved most of all is that this amazing oil is 100% Organic!!

This Oil is produced by Moroccan women's co-ops. In 2002, the Moroccan government helped establish female cooperatives to manufacture Argan Oil. These programs provide women of rural Morocco with a steady income, a fair wage, good working conditions, as well as literacy and other education classes. Perhaps most importantly, the co-ops give women a keen sense of empowerment in this traditionally male-dominated society. I love that Josie Maran supports such a wonderful co-op, providing women with the opportunity to better themselves. So cool.

josie maran argan creamy concealer crayon beauty makeup certified fabulous

I loved the100% Pure Argan Oil Light for my hair and skin, so I was excited to also try Josie Maran’s Concealer Crayon. I use concealer every day to cover up my yucky (inherited) dark under eye circles. I love that this product is in a large crayon shaped tool which made application a snap.  I love that this concealer contains Sea Fennel Extract which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and lines and stimulates cellular renewal. The Buckwheat Seed Extract in this product decreased the look of skin puffiness. Josie Maran Concealer Crayon is creamy, blendable and luminous and comes self-sharpening in its twist up tube. This concealer doesn’t contain any parabens, sulfates or phthalates which is super important to me, especially when I am putting product on my face.  My only concern was I had to be very careful to no break the tip of this concealer crayon. The formula is so soft, silky and blendable, if youre not careful you could easily break the tip off of your crayon, meaning less wonderful product to enjoy, so be mindful, and enjoy!!

A cleanser is made to take off makeup, dirt, grime and anything else you don't want hanging around on your face while you sleep or get ready to apply makeup in the morning! I am very VERY obsessed with my skincare routine and I have never skipped any step to my process, yes even when I have got home at 2AM or stayed at a friends house unexpectedly. Cleaning your face is very important and I always tend to think of it as an artists canvas, I wouldn't want to paint on a dirty canvas or one that had paint on it already, so why would I want to layer more makeup on if my face wasn't clean? Not to mention the environmental toxins we encounter on a daily basis! Ewww. So the first step, and most basic step to skincare is cleanser. What will you put on your face to wash away the days build up?

Avalon Organics main purpose and mission statement is "to create an extraordinary range of truly effective personal care products that are inherently pure, safe and certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard for Personal Care Products Containing Organic Ingredients. Formulated without parabens, harsh preservatives, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, phthalates, or potentially harmful sulfates, our products are made with 100% vegetarian, science-based nutrients and natural botanicals, and are designed to reflect your need for a pure and effective line of personal care products." (source: www.avalonorganics.com

Their bottles are even made with 100% recycled materials!

I may have a strict skincare routine but when it comes to natural and organic product use, I have not really looked into it as much as I should. Although there are products that I can not give up that are not organic or natural, I know that it is important to incorporate them into my skincare routine in some way. Upon thinking about organic products and the safety of skincare in general I was excited to try out the Avalon Organics CoQ10 Repair TM Facial Cleansing Gel.

Weleda Skin Food 8.1.13WELEDA - Skin Food for Dry and Rough Skin

This product is food for your skin! It will crave this cream. The past few months have caused my skin to become very needy. I really like this product and I applied it to the rough dry patches on my skin.

I must share with you how great it felt - the treated areas on my face and skin were hydrated & smoothed. I have a tendency to get rough & dry patches occasionally on my heels and this product was amazing. It is ultra rich and very hydrating. It is recommended for stubborn dryness on your elbows, hands and feet. After using this product your skin will feel moisturized and conditioned.

The unique blend of essential fatty acids, vitamin E and organic sunflower seed oil will moisturize and hydrate your skin. Organic pansy is known for its mild antiseptic properties that calm dry irritation. Soothing rosemary leaf extract’s mild antiseptic properties, the anti-inflammatory properties of Biodynamic,® and organic calendula flower extract gently nourish and care for your skin.

This is a must have product! Apply a small amount of Skin Food to dry or rough skin as needed and massage into the skin until the cream is absorbed. To deeply nourish hard-working, dry hands, liberally apply the cream on the hands, cover with cotton gloves and leave on overnight.

When we hear the word hippie we tend to think of the people in the 1960's that had long hair, protested, and were obsessively into living a naturalist, environment friendly lifestyle. The surprising part is that those outcasts of that generation were way ahead of their time because now natural and organic living is a huge part of the norm in today's society. We may have shorter haircuts, shaved legs and prefer to wear shoes now, but us health conscious, earth friendly shoppers are considered a new age hippie! The once taboo title of granola-crunchy hippie is now a compliment more than an insult. More and more consumers are learning about the health benefits of natural and organic eating and now that frame of mind is expanding out to our skincare. People are educating themselves and reading labels to ensure they maintain health on the inside...and out. 

Weleda is one company maintaining their 100% certified natural claim since they started in 1921. They have very clear standards for their products:

  • No synthetic preservatives
  • No synthetic fragrances
  • No synthetic chemicals
  • No synthetic anything

It's that simple...and when they say "all natural" they mean all natural! 

Weleda's origins is a very interesting story:

"It all goes back to 1921 and something called anthroposophy. This movement, stemming from the teachings of philosopher Dr. Rudolf Steiner, encourages the individual to see his or her body, mind and spirit as intrinsically linked to our world; all part of one holistic system.

I have a brand to discuss today that you might not have heard of, but you'll want to know about! Cactus Skincare is an Australian brand that uses natural and organic ingredients all with cactus extracts. I was able to try some samples from their FABULOUS line of skincare, and let me tell you, I was impressed! Along with other benefits, Cactus Skincare offers products that suit your skin type/problems (dry, oily, combination, etc.), which helps in the selection process of what product to use. My skin tends to be more on the drier side, so I want to cover the products that focus on dry skin and how they worked for me.

Cactus Samples 7.21.13 Certified FabulousI'll start with the Intense Hydrating Creme. This cream is suitable for dry skin or to use as a night cream. I personally really like using a night cream, letting the product work while I sleep. After cleansing or exfoliating before bed, it is a great rich cream to apply and let it work its magic! This Intense Hydrating Creme was a great moisturizer and my skin felt radiant, nourished, and restored in the morning! It absorbs well and does not leave a greasy residue, however it does leave a protective hydrating barrier over the skin. It also smells absolutely divine! Fresh, natural, flowery and is in no way overly fragrant. 

Now for a day cream, I tried the Nature's Anti-Oxidant Creme for normal to dry skin. This is a lighter (yet still very moisturizing) cream that contains mineral sunscreen, great to put on in the morning before you walk out into the bright sun! It was easy to incorporate this cream into my morning skincare routine, as it absorbs really well and I can easily apply makeup afterwards. With vitamins and minerals to enrich and nourish skin, I felt good about using this product. Not only was it moisturizing, but I felt that it helpd improve my skin, leaving a smooth appearance and texture! This cream can also be used to help soothe sun damaged skin!

I also really liked the Lemon Myrtle Cleanser & Gentle Exfoliant (both suitable for all skin types). The cleanser smells especially fresh and the exfoliant was gentle enough on my skin and left a bright surface ready for the Intense Hydrating Cream!

When reading more about Cactus Skincare, I came across this description of the brand that says, "Cactus Skincare creates a healthy working environment for skin by retaining moisture and giving the skin the nurtrients it needs to repair itself." I think we often look for products to heal our skin on thier own, but I liked the idea of your skin being able to repair itself with the ingredients and environment created by the skincare product. This idea definelty came through in their products and if you are also intrigued by the skincare line, be sure to check them out on their website www.cactusskincare.com

Dark undereye circles truly are a drag.  Some only suffer from this unsightly problem when they are overtired, but not I. I was inherited my saggy bags from my mother, the dear.  So whenever a product comes through Certified Fabulous' door that claims to help with this problem, I am always all over it. This month the product is Orico London’s High Rise Rejuvenating Eye Elixir. I tried, I liked, and now Im going to tell you why.

Orico London Rejuvenating Eye Elixir 6.24The ingredient list for this product is what impressed me first and foremost. Orico uses high quality organic ingredients in this delightful under eye cream. Botanical Moringa proteins purify and pollution-proof skin for radiant glow. Rhodiola Rosea (Golden Root) extract from a plant that can only be found in cold regions of the world such as Serbia serves as the bioactive in this product which helps to energize and moisturize the eye area, reducing puffiness and dark circles. Aloe Vera provides the nice cooling sensation I experienced upon application. I love that most of the ingredients in this product have organic origins as well.

I also love how Orico clinically tests their bioactives in the products by independent labs through clinical trials. I think that when companies do this, it is a true testimony to the effectiveness of their product.  It is easy to claim that something is great, but when resources are placed into proving these claims, that’s a huge testimony to the brands integrity. In a 4 week in-vivo study of 17 females with under eye puffiness, the active was applied twice daily and the results were:

- 64% of panelists observed a reduced appearance of darkness under the eyes and also an improvement in overall appearance.

- 60% of panelists observed reduced under eye sag and improvements in skin radiance.

Beauty products have never been known for being earth friendly (I think we can all admit that the amount of Aqua Net used in the 80's caused its own hole in the Ozone) so it's refreshing to find some all natural products that really do help make you look your best!

First, lets talk about two amazing natural additions to bath time: Dorey Aromatherapy Message in a Bubble and Plum Hill Sugar Body Scrub. I don't take baths very often, but with wedding planning, work, preparing for graduate school, and life in general, I've been experiencing my fair share of stress lately, and what's a better all-natural cure for stress than a bath?

I filled my tub with hot water and sunk in for a relaxing mini getaway. The Dorey Aromatherapy Message in a Bubble04262013 Dorey Aromatherapy Bath Fizzie Certified Fabulous is a bath bomb that I simply dropped in the water and the ball burst with fizzy fury! In just seconds my entire bath was a spa retreat. The gentle massage of the fizz loosened up my tense muscles and the rich smell filled my bathroom. The ball lasted for several minutes and once completely dissolved, a small laminated message floated to the top of the water. My message was a quote on strength and fearlessness from Audre Lorde, a writer and civil rights activist. I put my inspirational quote aside and enjoyed my enriched bath. After I dried off, my skin felt soft and rejuvenated.

04262013 Plum Hill Body Sugar Cranberry OrangeMy next Earth friendly bath treat was Plum Hill Sugar Body Scrub. I have the Cranberry Orange scented scrub and it smells fantastic! The scrub also comes in Coconut Lime and Island Woods, all amazing scents! The natural oils mean that the scrub doesn't smell chemical or fake, plus the oils leave your skin baby soft! I used this in the shower and, unlike some scrubs that dissolve in your hand, this had a nice thick texture that lasted. The oils left my skin moisturized and the scrub harmlessly exfoliated.

Now let's go outside the bathtub/shower. I have dry frizzy hair that sometimes, with enough product, 04262013 Curl Up and Shine Creme Use Me Certified Fabulouscan have soft curls. But I hate piling chemicals on to my hair everyday, robbing it of it's natural beauty. Thankfully, the amazing people of Use Me have figured out a natural solution! Use Me's Curl Up & Shine Creme is a gentle cream that you apply to wet hair, working your way from ends to root. As I worked my way up, I scrunched the tips of my hair and gently separated my curls with my fingers. Then I just let my hair air dry and it looked great! Everyone noticed my hair looked less frizzy and my curls were allowed to spring, not weighed down with product.

How to keep frizzy hair under control

Hey everyone this is Claudia again. This week is all about hair. I love that topic. In General I am frizzy hair finalpretty happy with my hair. It is very blond and wavy and long. What I don’t like about it is that it is very frizzy. Now that the winter is getting closer and the temperatures are dropping I feel like it’s a real burden on my hair. When I go to the gym and blow dry my hair just a few minutes,

I look like this lady on the left... Primrose frozen hair final

 

Unfortunately with the temperatures being at freezing point or lower I cannot go outside without at least drying my hair a bit or I would probably look like that lady to the right...
