Papaya Pumpkin and Jalapenoyo’face–sounds like a tasty salad :)

Peaches Miracle Mask

Product Description: This special active enzyme mask reduces discoloration from age spots, scar tissue and sun damage, as well as removing dead skin cells – thus giving the skin a more youthful flawless look.

Wear as a spot treatment or mask. Can be worn overnight and as often as every day.  Always apply to clean skin.

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

Pumpkin and Papaya wonderful-ness all up in my face.  I love love love it.  I love the way it feels on my skin.  AND I LOVE THE RESULTS!  I’ve done the mask two nights in a row and am over the moon happy with the radiance. I like this mask for all you readers that hate the intense tightness that a lot of clay masks give you.  This goes on like a thick moisturizer and feels slightly tingly (all those anti-oxidants working so hard) and washes off like a cleanser.

In the last few days, I have had a lot of questions about my daily skin care regimen. So here it is 🙂

I start with the Blueberry and Coffee Exfoliant, then the Cleanser (with my Mia) then the Papaya Creme Enzyme Polish,  I usually don’t actually wash off between each product, I just apply over,  then I spray the toner.  I apply the mask with a brush, I let it sit and then wash of with warm water (only once a week).  Then I spray more toner and apply the Retinol Night Creme. In the morning, I do the same but instead of the Retinol I rotate in my Monistat (aka vag cream moisturizer).

It seems like a lot, but its a lot faster than one might think.  I switched to Peaches in Feb because I was worried about all the chemicals I was putting on my face EVERY SINGLE DAY.  It was a tough mental transition for me because I was used to paying between $50-$200 on EACH product.  I was also used to FANCY pants packaging and outstanding fear based marketing.

Peaches Skin Care is none of those things.

1.  Each product is under $30 because the owner believes everyone should be able to afford good skin.

2.  It seems they are able to do this because they don’t spend a lot of money on fancy pants packaging.  All of their products are packaged in a cute but simple way.  ALSO, they only produce small batches of the product, hence their ability to keep everything all natural.  “Organic, filled with anti aging antioxidants and pure penetrating food for the skin. YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE with your first wash. “-Peaches

3.  “I have never believed in oily or combination skin, I believe we all have normal skin but we damage it by using foundation, bad skin care products, smoking and not knowing how to care for it. “-Peaches  Clearly not fear based marketing 🙂

If you are looking for an all natural, organic, full of anti-oxidants check out this line:  PEACHES SKINCARE

If you are looking for a Starter product, consider the Blueberry and Coffee Exfoliatant, the Retinol Night Creme or the Pumpkin and Papaya Miracle Mask.  I have found these to be my “no matter what” products 🙂

Also, if you suffer from Acne, check out their testimonials.  They will BLOW YOUR MIND.  And, if you have acne and aren’t using Vag Creme (MONISTAT ONLY) on your face, you are BONKERS.

Best Text Msg Regarding VAG CREAM!

k:  “Few Things:  What is the name of your amazing lip gloss I tried at LIME (dinner)?  and I have vag cream on my face right now.”

m:  1.  BEST.MSG.EVER  2.  DIOR LIP GLOW 3.  Your face will thank you later:)

Confused?  GO HERE: I have VAG CREAM ON MY FACE!

What’s in my bag???

Oh, thanks for asking!  Its been a long time since I have been so consistent with what’s in my purse.

So ever since my first facial, I have cut back significantly on what I put on my face.  Thus cutting back the things I carry in my purse!

I am proud to say these are the only beauty products I keep in my purse currently:

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter:  You might remember this purchase from my Pre-Vacation post.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent!  It reminds me of my honeymoon:)  I love that its all natural and that its a good size for a hand lotion in my purse.

Boscia Blotting Papers:  Since my facial, my skin has been very different.  I could blame the vag cream on my face 🙂 but I love it too much:)  MONISTAT FOREVER!  That said, I have noticed that around 1 everyday my face gets really shiny.  REALLY REALLY SHINY (I think it may have something to do with having my heater on high under my desk).  I can go thru 3 papers in one blotting…that’s a lot for me.  These lil guys are a life saver.  I love them and I feel like they have lasted FOREVER.

One Love Organics Skin Savior:  This is the best BirchBox product yet!!!!  Granted its only my second box and I was super unimpressed with box one 🙂  STILL, I will likely purchase this after I finish this tub.  I use it on my hands, and my nails, and my lips.  Seriously, like everyday.  I love how fresh and light it smells.  LOVE IT.

Last but certainly not least….Dior Lip Glow.  I LOVE IT.  I get so many compliments about this product!  I LOOOOOVE IT.

Side Note, my SHH bought me that purse for my birthday 🙂 Kate Spade is my bestie.


Peaches Products!

I have been using my new Peaches products for about 30 days now.

I feel that 30 days is a fair amount of time to trial a product.  And in this case I am super happy with my results in such a short time:)

Everyday my skin care routine looks like this x2 morning and night:

“Because after almost 23 years in the skin care industry and after taking care of hundreds if not thousands of clients I have seen first hand what the RIGHT skin care products can do. Over the years we have developed two other skincare lines with Peaches as our third and the one we feel is a stand-out product.

Organic, filled with anti aging antioxidants and pure penetrating food for the skin. YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE with your first wash.

I have never believed in oily or combination skin, I believe we all have normal skin but we damage it by using foundation, bad skin care products, smoking and not knowing how to care for it.” Lisa – Owner, Peaches Skin Care

I know, I know, its a lot of products.  I usually get the first 3 products into 1 or 2 steps in the am to save time.  But at night, I make sure to do each step (including the Clarisonic with my AHA cleanser.)

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

My skin is 100% different!  I feel like my skin is as smooth as it is ever going to be.  I was worried about all the exfoliation at first but I am quite certain its the exfoliation that has made the biggest changes!

Everyday I can tell I am washing away dead skin.  I love the way the products feel on my skin and I love that they are ALL all natural!  I love the tingling sensation when I apply the toner, I love knowing that the product is working.  I especially love the Monistat.  I haven’t had a single breakout in 30 days.  NOT ONE!

One of the biggest obstacles for me to overcome was definitely the price.  I am used to paying $100 for a serum…admittedly, the more I spent the better I assumed the product was. Each of these products is UNDER $30!

I asked about this, I was told by Peaches that beauty should be attainable for ALL WOMEN!  Not just women who can afford to spend that much.  SOLD.  I am telling you that place is amazing.

My favorite product right now is the: Luminous Peptide Serum!  I love it.  I love the way it feels after exfoliating.  Its amazingly smooth going on and feels so light!
