I learned many years ago at a health food store that people should be just as concerned about their personal care products as with their food. People should be very careful about the ingredients one uses on their skin: it absorbs and excretes nutrients. If you've been traveling and your skin is showing the effects, it's time to pamper yourself.
That is why I was so happy to be hosted to experience Clairvoyant Beauty! Clairvoyant Beauty features natural and organic ingredients from the purest and most powerful wild-crafted botanicals. Formulas are developed in small batches to ensure the highest quality and eliminate the need for extraneous chemical preservatives.

French Clay Cleanser with DMAE: I first tried a French clay cleansing soap when I was a teenager, in a very unrefined format. Skincare has come a long way since then. With a combination of pink and green clays, it's good for both oily and combination skin. It's definitely terrific for deep cleansing men's skin! It's a crème-gel formulation. It's not as astringent as a gel alone would be, yet more thorough cleaning than most crèmes. DMAE is mentioned by WebMD.com as being potentially helpful for aging, sagging skin.
Refreshing Cucumber Toner is a modern style of toner. If all you remember are the SeaBreeze type alcoholic toners of your teens, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the natural salt, enzymes and vitamins in cucumber. The 100% natural scent from real cucumbers is perfect for men and women. There are lots of uses for cucumber toner aside from being the 2'd step in cleansing: put the plastic bottle in the fridge, use it as a refresher after working out, cleaning the house -- keep dust out of your pores -- soak on a washcloth when you have a headache and lie down, etc.
Balancing Rosehips Serum is a modern treatment formulation. Rosehips are the fruity parts of a rose, the part with all the vitamins. They're often made into nutritious teas. Serums are not moisturizers -- they're highly concentrated, silky treatment applications that make everything you use work better. This is the information they provide about it:
Rosehip Oil is a rich source of potent essential fatty acids (EFA) omega-3, omega-6 and Vitamin F, and its Vitamin C is high in gamma linoliec acid (GLA). Hibiscus, with its natural astringent and antioxidant properties, blends perfectly with the Rosehip Oil creating a synergistic combination for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Energizing B Vitamins, anti-aging DMAE and MSM, and nourishing Essential Oils make this Serum an excellent choice to keep your skin beautifully balanced and in ultimate healthy condition.
Depuffing Eye Gel: You ever hear about those old-timey beauty books that advise to use cucumber slices to get rid of puffy eyes? Well, take it from me -- if you do try that, you'd better make sure you're using cucumbers at the peak of freshness, organic and clean. If you don't, you can get some mighty crappy allergic reactions, like I did! Stop messing around and let the pros get extract the very best ingredients, including cranberry seed oil. Clairvoyant makes an eye gel that's suitable for all skin types -- if you have dry skin, also use an eye cream. It's light and doesn't seem to affect my ability to apply makeup over it. Another good product to keep in the fridge!
Soothing Lavender Lip Balm is neither waxy nor oily. I find it to be the perfect lip primer before applying cosmetics -- its texture is a perfect light coat, smooth and non-interfering.
Blue-Green Algae Body Polish: After a summer in the sun, on planes, on boats, body skin can get itchy and scaly. Also, if you have any thoughts of using a self-tanner, they only work well on freshly exfoliated on skin. You can tell that one of the main ingredients in this polish -- smooth in application -- is shea butter. The buttery, rich feel of your skin is one only achieved with the best scrubs and lotions using shea butter.
