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.

Spring has sprung and it is time to purge all that has accumulated over the winter months. The Certified Fabulous team knows the importance of spring cleaning your home, but let us not forget to cleanup cosmetic products as well. We all have a basket of skin, body and hair care products in our bathrooms, or a makeup bag full of cosmetics. Unopened, well-formulated products can remain stable for a couple of years, if stored at room temperature. However, heat and humidity promote the growth of mold and bacteria, and since most of us store our cosmetics in the most convenient place in the house, the bathroom, even unopened products can be at risk for contamination. Once a product has been open and exposed to the air, the clock starts ticking.

Cosmetic products DO go bad. At best, they stop performing the way they used to, could evaporate, or the feel of the product may change. Do you know when to purge your makeup and skincare products?? The Cert FAB team is here to help. We will explain the when and why you should toss your cosmetic products.

Most cosmetic products will have either a PAO symbol or an expiration date denoted somewhere on the packaging. "PAO" stands for "period after opening" and is symbolized like this: PAO

The PAO symbol will also have a number followed by an "M" (M for month). The number indicates the number of months the product is guaranteed to be stable, after the product is open. For example, if you see a PAO symbol with 12M stamped on it, the company is telling you the product is good to use for 12 months after opening. This number is determined by testing performed on the preservatives used in the formula which keep the product from growing mold and bacteria.

The expiration date is simply a date printed somewhere on the cosmetic's packaging (usually on the bottom) which indicates when the product is due to expire. In some instances, a product may have a problem well before its PAO or expiration date. Cosmetic packaging that is warped, expanded or shows signs of deterioration is a definite sign that something is wrong with the formula and should be tossed. If it smells funny, or the texture of the formula has changed significantly, definitely toss it out as well.

The dry winter months are really doing a number on my skin, and I am not alone. Everyone who knows me, and who knows that I develop skincare for a living has asked me “what should I use to hydrate my dull, dry skin during the winter months?” Many products claim to hydrate and nourish, but when investing on a moisturizer, a product that does what it claims to do is preferable. Hydropeptide Power Lift Advanced Ultra-Rich Moisturizer is an amazing product which claims to “target visible signs of aging and quench dry skin”. We tested this product and experienced the following results.

After cleansing, a pea sized amount was applied to the face and neck. This moisturizer is incredibly thick and rich, and was instantly hydrating. It is important to use the recommended amount of this product. One of our testers used too much, and too much of a good thing is never good. After the first use, Hydropeptide Power Lift Advanced Ultra-Rich Moisturizer left our dry skin feeling “quenched”, nourished and thoroughly moisturized. We noticed an improvement in the tone and texture of skin as well after using for 2 weeks. Skin felt “hydrated” and there was the appearance of fine lines were visibly diminished after 2 weeks.

When I touched the bee to try the color it looked like pure gold...I was enchanted :) The colors go on light unless you wet an eyeshadow brush to enhance the pigment, which is perfect so you can control the look you want easier.

    OLAY Fresh Effects {S’wipe Out!} Refreshing Make-Up Removal Cloths

    Gentle everyday cleansing that’s on-the-go. Fresh and swift, these pre-moistened wipes are covered in cottony-soft cleansing pockets that lift away dirt and makeup—even Waterproof mascara!—in a flash.

    * Makeup removing cloths are a necessity in my opinion and these definitely bring some cleaning power to my face when I need to get clean at the end of the day! Olay has been a brand used by generations of women in my family and I, without a doubt, continue to use the brand because it has always (and still does) perfect the skin and protects it from aging. If you saw my grandmothers skin you would never guess her age...her secret is solely Olay! 

  • Clarisonic - Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing certified fabulous review
    Clarisonic: Mia

    What is it: It's your 60-second trip to the spa, every day. The Clarisonic Mia uses sonic technology that works with the natural elasticity of the skin. Oscillating back and forth at a sonic frequency that produces 300 movements per second, a flexing action is created between the outer and inner brushes that works deeply and gently to loosen dirt and oil, cleansing so effectively that skin-care products absorb better. Clinical results include six times more makeup removed than manual cleansing. It also works to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, and addresses oily areas, dry skin patches, and skin tone.

    Who is it for: Because not all skin is the same, neither are Clarisonic brush heads. The included deep pore cleansing brush head and sensitive brush head provide an easy introduction to sonic cleansing. But Clarisonic also makes a variety of interchangeable brush heads for specific facial skin types and conditions.

    Why is it different: Cleansing the skin more thoroughly removes impurities trapped in pores. Once those obstructions are removed, skin-care products can absorb better, making skin much more receptive to treatments, lotions, and serums.

    How do I use it: Traditional methods of cleansing don't get your skin as clean as you'd think. Using sonic technology, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System works with skin's natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind--leaving skin softer, smoother, and more beautiful.

    * You've seen it around, it's been out for a while now. Why haven't you bought one?! I attribute the improved (now nearly perfect) quality of my skin to this amazing invention! My skin completely cleared up and it smoothed out the texture so much! I tell everyone I know they need to own one, the benefits greatly outweigh the price...I would pay WAY more for it considering it made me feel better about myself and my skin forever!

    Clarifying + Brightening Peptides, Azelaic + Lactic Acid, Canadian Willowherb - These anti-aging skin clarifying toner pads reveal healthy skin with renewing alpha hydroxy acids and a pore-cleansing peptide that will help create a flawless complexion.

    * I LOVE this toner, especially since it comes already to used with pre-moistened pads that you can take out of the jar and apply easily and anywhere. Each pad, from the first to the last, had the perfect amount of toner saturation and I only needed to use one for my whole face and neck. These are my favorite morning products to use. I wake up and swipe my face with a pad before I apply my lotions and I am good!!!  An absolute must have that never dried out skin, but keeps it balanced and properly hydrated without a slimy feeling.

Do you ever feel like sometimes when you look in the mirror all you can see is your pores looking back at you? I sure do! I feel like my pores are always huge and I was starting to give up hope on a solution to this until I tried the Neutrogena Pore Refining products.   They are so confident that they can shrink your pores that Neutrogena has a “Pore No More” Challenge #PoreNoMore. It is a 7-day challenge and what they want you to do is Swap out your regular skincare routine for Neutrogena Pore refining collection, using it up to 2x a day for one week. After your 7-day test they challenge you to feel confident in your bare skin. 

Challenge accepted Neutrogena!

Neutrogena pore refining daily cleanserSo Neutrogena offers a Pore Refining daily cleanser, toner, exfoliating cleanser and moisturizer. They have my morning and night routine covered. The products are of course aimed to shrink the look of large pores.  They are formulated to penetrates deep into skin to remove dirt, oil & makeup that can clog enlarged pores then it sweeps away dead surface skin and smoothes over rough, uneven patches to tighten large pores.  Sounds like a lot to deliver right? I was really happy with my results after using all of these products for a short amount of time.neutrogena pore refining exfoliating cleanser

First I would usually start with the Pore Refining Daily cleanser. This cleanser will help the look of pores and refine skin’s tone and texture.  The cleanser feels really nice and left my skin feeling clean without drying it out which is always nice.  Neutrogena also offers a Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser which will also help reduce the look of pores and they say you should notice a difference within one week.  What makes this exfoliator work is micro beads that will help get rid of dead surface skin and also help even out skin tone. The alpha-hydroxy formula will penetrate deep into pores to remove dirt, oil and makeup.  I really enjoyed how this made my skin feel. I used it every over day in replace of the Daily cleanser but you can use it every day depending on your preference.

 I had never tried a detox before and I had the opportunity to try the East West Essentials 3 day Optimal Skin Detox.  I read a little about it and thought it sounded pretty good.  This detox is designed to eliminate toxins from the body, help reverse signs of premature aging, target saggy and aged skin and cellulite, and activate collagen keratin and elastin.   This detox combines targeted supplements, detox shakes, phytonutrients and essential oils.  This really works from the inside to give you the benefits outside of healthier and more youthful looking skin. There is a caution on the package as with anything If you have any major health concerns, check with your healthcare practitioner before use. Do not use if pregnant. Keep out of reach of children.

  The thing I really liked about this detox was that it is extremely easy to follow. It comes in a box that includes 1 bottle of Optimal Cleanse Powder (5 servings), 1 bottle of Optimal Nutrition (5 servings), 1 bottle of Optimal Fatty Acid (30 capsules), and 1 bottle of Optimal Beauty (10 capsules), specific instructions, shopping list, meal plan.  The book tells you when you what to take when and even gives you a meal guide.  I really liked this because I didn’t have to try to come up with things that I could eat, it was all spelled out for me exactly what I needed.  They also includes daily tips and things that you should avoid while doing your detox like alcohol, caffeine, dairy, soy, corn, wheat, sugar artificial sweetener or smoking on the program. So I had to prepare myself to behave for 3 days :)

 They have the daily guide & instructions which gives you the mixing instructions for the shakes and the supplement instructions.  To give you an idea the first day you will have breakfast , and take your 3 Optimal Fatty Acid Supplements and 1 Optimal Beauty Capsule. Then for a snack you have the optimal skin detox shake. Then you have lunch and your next snack is the Optimal nutrition shake, followed by dinner and 3 more optimal fatty acid supplements and 1 optimal beauty capsule.  It is a pretty easy routine to follow which great meals in between the supplement sand shakes they provide.

 The Optimal Skin Detox Shake you mix two scoops of the Optimal Skin Detox with 8-10 oz of water. You can mix it with a blender and use ice and you can add fruit, cinnamon, stevia and or organic vanilla for taste.   I usually mixed mine with fruit typically a banana and blueberries.  The Optimal Nutrition Shake you mix 5 teaspoons of the Optimal Nutrition in 8-10 oz of cold water and mix well.  This was a nice shake. The thing I like about these shakes is that they want you to have them as snack  in-between your meals. You don’t have to worry about skipping meals.  You do want to have healthy meals but they give you ideas like Oatmeal & Turkey bacon for breakfast and Romaine Avocado Salad for dinner, and the recipes are included in the book. They even give you a shopping list to follow for the week which is nice because when I am trying to follow a good diet sometimes I have a hard time deciding what to make and these recipes are great.

When it comes to skin care I feel like Palmer’s products are always a "go to" brand for me. They have an aray of products to choose from to help make your skin look and feel amazing. And of course they can help your hair as well. I had the pleasure of trying some of their Cocoa Butter Formula products recently and fell in love!

Palmers Cocoa Butter formula skin therapy oil


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil is a great product that can be used all over the body and can help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged skin, uneven skin ton, aging skin and fine line and wrinkles…. Long list of stuff! I have only been using this product for a few weeks now but my skin looks and feels healthier. I will have to do an update later in a month or so and let you know how it does on scars and stretch marks, which I have thanks to my amazing little boy :)  They also have the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin therapy Oil Face which will help with fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and ageing skin… another great long list!  This oil is packed with the good stuff from vitamin c, to retinol, and cocoa butter of course! There are 10 pure oils that will moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The great thing about both of these products is that they won’t leave you feeling slippery and greasy but they are hydrating and smell and feel great.

National Relaxation Day is upon us! If you didn’t know it is tomorrow (August 15th)! So prepare to get your relaxation on! I had the pleasure of trying some great products from Neutrogena to help me celebrate! Since I believe that pampering and relaxation go hand in hand; these products are great not only will they help keep your skin moisturized and glowing but it will also help keep your hair looking fabulous. So for all of you who don’t have the time or money to go to a spa here are a few products to help you relax for this holiday.

Neutrogena rainbath renewing shower gel


Neutrogena Rainbath® Renewing Shower and Bath Gel - Pear & Green Tea softens and conditions skin without a heavy leave-behind residue. This shower gel has a unique fragrance blend of pear and green tea which is absolutely delightful and relaxing. Not only does it smell great but it works to renew the look of your skin as well as feeling softer, smoother and truly renewed. Another great thing about this product is you can also use it for shaving! I love products that have multiple uses because my shower tends to get filled with multiple products and it is nice to have something that truly works great for both purposes that it says it will.

  • AOskin VitC BalancingToner lotion moisturizer certified fabulous review vitamin renewal serumAVALON ORGANICS: Vitamin C Renewal skincare collection

    Balancing Toner / Renewal Cream / Vitality Facial Serum / Moisture Plus Lotion - Broad Spectrum SPF 15

    The BEST skincare line to perfect skin tone and clarity! I absolutely LOVE this collection ever since researching Vitamin C skincare and I am very addicted. Vitamin C for brightening, renewing and perfecting. This is my primary night products and I even use the Moisture Plus lotion to apply in the morning before makeup. I will never go without Vitamin C on my face because of the results it has given me. #VitaminCaddict 
  • Bioré Blemish Fighting Astringent CHARCOAL CLEANSER one minute self heating mask certified fabulous reviewBIORÉ® SKINCARE


    I have been using and loving BIORÉ since I was a teenager, amazed at the gunk that came off on their pore strips :) This brand is the real deal and they have the products to prove it! I love using the Charcoal Cleanser after I wipe my makeup off with a makeup removing cloth. I apply the gel to my face then use my Clarisonic to deep scrub my face and draw out the imperfections. Chaorcoal is an amazing ingredient and I believe in it's amazing abilities to pull out deep grim in my skin. The Self Heating mask is incredible, feels amazing and is the ideal weekly treatment to keep my skin balance in check! Especially beneficial after flying to release your skin from the nasty multiple enviromental toxins you subjected yourself to. 

    The Blemish Fighting Astringent is my only product I use in the morning when I wake up to clean the oily surface the night has created and prep my face for lotion and makeup. It's refreshing, cooling and wakes me up! 
  • Nads natural hair removal nose wax body wax strips certified fabulous review
    Nad's Hair Removal 

    Nad’s Hair Removal Nose Wax for Men & Women / Nad's Hair Removal Body Wax Strips for Normal Skin

    You might of saw the YouTube video of me and Sara trying the Nad's Nose Wax kit for the first time, if not CLICK HERE. I happen to love this product because, yes let's admit it, women have nose hair too! The easiest and fastest way I like to get rid of it is the Nad's Nose Wax kit because it is simple to use and it gets rid of the hair immediately. It stings for a second, but don't be afraid, as intimidating as it seems it really isn't that bad and it works great!!! 

    The idea of waxing did frighten me and especially going to a salon to get waxing done, so I was thrilled to try the Nad's Wax Strips at home! The instructions and use was easy and not as painful as I thought. When I think of waxing I have flashbacks of my mother's using hot wax on her legs and screaming bloody murder when she had to rip it off...kind of traumatized my desire to wax. I always have trouble shaving the back of my thigh perfectly, so I just used the wax strips and I instantly had hairless thighs...waxing has come a long way since my mom tried it! Yay for technology..and Nad's! 
  • Boots Botanics Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz ionic clay mask shine away certified fabulous reviewBoots Botanics

    Boots Botanics Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz / Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask  

    I really enjoyed using a spritz toner to freshen up my face. I love using this when I don't wear makeup and need a mid-day cleaning booster! Cooling, refreshing and cleansing without drying out my skin. Plus I can't resist the scent of rose!!!!

    The Ionic Clay Mask is a mineral-rich oceanic clay mask containing a negative electrical charge which acts like a magnet, helping to draw deep-rooted impurities out of the skin without drying. With that definition who wouldn't want to try this product out?! This is a great summer mask because of the extra sweaty, oily skin I get with the ever changing living in a 2nd floor apartment really traps in the heat! One days I know I was pouring out sweat I love to relax and apply this mask to detox my skin while I cool down from the day. 
  • LOCCITANE candle foam face wash devine eyes almond body oil shower perfume certified fabulous reviewL'OCCITANE EN PROVENCE

    Angelica Lemon Ultra Foaming Cleanser / Divine Eyes / Fleur d'Or & Acacia Perfumed Candle / Almond Shower Oil / Verbena Eau de Toilette

    One of my FAVORITE brands! I have loved every single product I have tried from this brand and I think it is worth the splurge! Quality that works! The foam cleanser is luxurious and contants angelica extract which is well known for it's effectiveness on skin hydration and vitality with organic lemon essential oil for its notable astringent action. It stays in my shower so I can use it every time I'm getting clean :) While in there I adore the Almond Shower oil to wash with because it supplies immediate and long lasting hydration. This shower oil transforms, when in contact with water, into a delicate foam that gently cleanses the body and the scent is incredible! It is my favorite in-shower cleanser + hydrator! I can't express my love enough for this! 

    The Divine eye cream is a fresh, creamy eye gel that helps smooth fine lines and firms the fragile eye area by harnessing the unique anti-aging properties of the everlasting immortelle flower and a new botanitcal booster of 7 plant-derived active ingredients. It applies flawlessly and leaves my eyes youthful and bright! The Verbena perfume gives a fresh, easy-going scent that is the definition of me in the summer...the feelings I get when I smell the aroma is a very positive and happy feeling. Of course the candle smells just as scented and alluring as it fills my home with a fresh, floral aroma that everyone I have over comments.

    Brilliant and flawless products from a top brand. 
  • JOSIE MARAN Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment certified fabulous review beautyJOSIE MARAN Cosmetics

    Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment

    WOW...that's my first impression after using just ONE of these oil treatments! I once again underestimated a product and when I finally get around to trying it I am blown away and left wondering why I haven't been using it sooner. 

    Made Vitamin-E-rich with 100% Pure Argan Oil, one little tube packs in a ton of hair repair and strengthening powers!! It was a truly delightful and relaxing shower experience to apply to my hair and feel the immediate warming. After leaving it on for a few minutes I rinsed it and and my hair was already noticeably different. I could brush through it easily and it my color looked intensely shine and healthy. In fact, the next day when I went to work everyone was commenting on my hair and asking what I did! I have been trying to get my hair back to it's old self again after I tortured it in an over-bleaching situation last summer....I have found the secret! 
  • CloSYS all products toothpaste mouthwaste tounge teeth fresh mint certified fabulous review
    CloSYS oral health care

    CloSYS Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste / CloSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Rinse / CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray / Tongue Cleaner / Toothbrush

    The great thing about this brand? Their products do Not contain sulfates, triclosan or gluten. Another unique feature, the CloSYS Toothpastes are one of a few that DOES NOT contain the foaming agent, sodium lauryl sulfate(SLS) which is commonly used, but has been linked to canker sores. Plus, CloSYS Antiseptic Oral Rinse is ALCOHOL Free so there is no burning or drying. This is an oral care company that actually cares about your overall health and not just if you have white teeth no matter what risky ingredients are used to make that happen. 

    I found the collection to be very non-abrasive and had minimal taste. If you are a person that needs a strong burst of mint flavor in your oral products they also include a Flavor Control dropper to add in more mint...clever huh? So take your time and take care of you mouth...tongue included (if you use the scrapper! hah)

Staying hydrated is key in the summer and I’m not just talking about drinking water. Don’t forget to take care of your skin. I had the chance to try some amazing hydrating products from Seabuck Wonders. SeabuckWonders products are made of Seabuckthorn oil, if you are not familiar with sea buckthorn it is a berry with a history dating back to the time of Genghis Khan and Mythical Greece…so a long time ago. Known historically for it's health and beauty boosting properties, sea buckthorn was commonly fed to horses to increase their health and vigor and was noted for giving them shiny fur. Thus, Hippophae Rhamnoides, the botanical name for sea buckthorn, literally stands for "tree that makes horses shine". It is known for its health and beauty boosting properties.  SeabuckWonders is one of those companies that understands that people want products that are healthy and safe to use. All of SeabuckWonders products are USDA certified Organic . Vegan; Non – gmo, leaping bunny cruelty free.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion is an intense moisturizer that leaves skin feeling silky, smooth and nourished. This lotion has a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil which allows for superior moisture retention while protecting the skin from signs of aging. This lotion is filled with powerful antioxidants and contains more than 190 bioactive nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Used daily you can see your skin will feel much healthier and more youthful .

 SeabuckWonders body lotion

Another great product of theirs is the Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream. This cream has a high concentrated infusion of Omega 3,6,9 and 7 which offers unparalleled hydration and protection for radiant skin. This is a very hydrating formula yet it is lightweight and will absorb quickly. It’s really amazing how nice it feels. The facial cream will help minimize fine lines, while protecting your skin.

Let’s face it I’m not getting any younger and I realize I need to start taking better care of my skin. There are so many systems out there and it can be really overwhelming trying to find the right one. I recently tried Altchek MD preventive + corrective anti-aging skincare products.  These products where developed by Dr. Douglas Altchek MD, who is a Diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology and a Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Altchek all products

The Altchek MD Daily Exfoliating Cleanser Gentle Micro-Polish is great! This will help with any impurities as well as dullness and uneven texture and skin tone.  The nice thing about this exfoliating cleanser is its abrasive enough to feel effective without overdoing it. The Cleanser left my skin feeling soft and fresh.  Great way to start and end the day especially on these hot summer days
