Lotion YonKa, It's a toner.

Let's talk about one of my favorite skin care products, Lotion YonKa. πŸ’–It's a magic potion!!!
Yon Ka lotion
It's not a lotion at all. It is an alcohol free healing mist used as a toner after cleansing your face. Spray it on after cleansing your face and lightly massage or pat it in. Apply your moisturizer right over it. The smell is divine! Clean and fresh, not perfumy. It is extremely soothing and balances skin conditions.

There are two formulas, one for normal to oily skin or combination skin (it's white) and one for dry and sensitive skin (it's pink). Both contain YonKa's signature blend of essential oils which are lavender, geranium, rosemary, cypress and thyme. 


Essential oils are oils extracted by distillation or cold pressing from various parts of a plant, the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, seeds or peels. The oils are aromatic and retain the chemical composition of the plant. The healing plant chemicals in the oils have various properties such as, anti inflammatory, anti oxidant, and anti bacterial. 


Essential oils are used in many cosmetic products and are often used for massage. Oily skin people, don't be afraid that the essential oils will make you more oily. They won't. Some have astringent properties that actually help control oil. 

Let's look at some of the properties of the oils in Lotion YonKa to see why the product is so healing and balancing. All of the oils listed are healing.


Lavender- reviving, regenerative, soothing, anti microbial

 Lavender is excellent for healing burns.

Geranium- anti inflammatory, antiseptic, regenerative


Rosemary- antiseptic, antimicrobial, regenerative


Cypress- tonic, astringent, antiseptic 

Cypress is great for oily skin.

Thyme- anti microbial, antiseptic, stimulates circulation 


There are many other ways to use Lotion YonKa besides using it as a toner:


Freshen your skin 

Freshen your face throughout the day to remove excess oil or add moisture. Oily skin: mist your face and pat it dry with cotton or a tissue to blot  away excess oil. Dry skin: mist your face and let it air dry.

Set your makeup

Give your freshly applied makeup a quick mist to set your it and give it a dewy look. Use either formula according to your skin type.

Freshen makeup 

Freshen up makeup that has gotten dry looking after hours of wear with a quick mist. Use either formula according to your skin type.

Use it on sunburn

Spray YonKa Lotion directly on the sunburn or spray it on a cotton pad to use as a compress. Either formula is beneficial but the glycerin in the sensitive formula maybe extra beneficial for sunburn treatment. Apply repeatedly throughout the day.

Spray it on bug bites and stings 

The healing soothing properties of YonKa Lotion are perfect to soothe, speed healing and reduce itch. You can also make a Lotion compress for bug bites. Spray the Lotion on a cotton pad and apply to the bite or sting. Use either formula for insect bites and stings. I prefer the oily skin formula for bug bites due to the slightly higher concentration of essential oils.

Use it to soothe skin irritations

You can spray it or make a compress to sooth rashes, eczema and other skin irritations. Use either formula according to your skin type.

Fall Nail Colors 2019: The Zoya Sensual Collection, Swatches and Review

I always look forward to the next season's nail polish colors and am excited to open my box of Zoya nail polish when it arrives on my doorstep. Once again, Zoya has created another sensational collection of nail colors for the 2019 fall season. 


It is the Sensual Collection. 
zoya sensual
There is a nice variety of 12 rich pigmented colors in cream, metallic and glitter finishes from soft pink to deep shimmering gray. The richness of the colors represents well the rich warm colors of autumn and truly gratifies the senses. 


The Nail Trends for Fall
Colors
Purples and blues remain trendy for fall 2019 along with nudes, neutrals, reds and glitter. We love our glitter!πŸ’œ 
Zoya is right on trend as usual!

Artsy Style

Nails polished in ombre using deep colors and half moons boldly polished or decked out in glitter continue to be all the rage. An emerging nail art trend is letters painted on the nails. It can be as simple as your initial on one nail or it can be an actual word spelled out on the nails.
cat nail design

Nail Shape
Shape your short or medium length nails in a round or classic oval shape. Shape your long nails in a more pointed almond, coffin or stiletto shape. My favorite squoval shape isn't the in trend but I still like it anyway!

Natural Mosquito Repellents & Mosquito Bite Remedy

My daughter just returned from a lovely vacation in Topsail Island, North Carolina. It looks so serene and that water is so gorgeous with hints of turquoise blue. 

Topsail Island, NC

It reminds a little bit of the water in the Caribbean and my favorite vacation place Jamaica where the water is aqua, turquoise and deep blue green.


She said it was wonderful except for all nasty the mosquitoes. They were really biting!
mosquito
They were biting during the day around the pool and were even worse in the evening which was quite inconvenient when it was time for them to make s'mores! 
 jill's beautycounter link
Not only do mosquitoes cause those itchy bite welts that we are all familiar with, they can carry diseases including West Nile Virus and the Zika Virus. 

Some people are allergic to the proteins in the mosquito saliva and have a severe reaction which creates large red swollen areas that are hot to the touch and take a long time to heal. I remember one time in Sea Isle City, NJ, my little nephew was actually so disfigured, from the mosquito bites he got on his face, that people passing by stared at him like something was seriously wrong with him.

We have to take precautions spending time outside when there are biting mosquitoes. I don't know about you, but I hate spraying chemicals like DEET on my skin and worry about putting DEET on children. I know products like OFF! work, but I'm a bit paranoid about certain chemicals. I like to take a more natural approach when ever possible.

I'm also paranoid about companies, such as Mosquito Shield, who spray entire properties with undisclosed chemicals. I recently received some great new info about Mosquito Shield's chemicals and added what I learned to my Mosquito Shield post.

Read: Are the Mosquito Shield chemicals safe?

Let's look at some safer natural ways to repel mosquitoes. 

Natural Ways to help keep the Mosquitoes away.

Essential Oils

Apply lavender essential oil to your pulse points. Lavender is one of my favorite soothing, healing, multi purpose essential oils that is safe to use undiluted on the skin.

Other mosquito repelling essential oils are Basil, Cedarwood, Citronella, Juniper, Lemon, Myrrh, Palmarosa, Pine, Geranium and Rosemary. A few drops of any of these oils need to be diluted in water or a carrier oil (olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, etc.) before applying to the skin.

Mix up a little essential oil concoction to repel them! Here are some easy recipes:

Recipe #1
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender essential oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
10 drops of lemon eucalypus oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

Recipe #2
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

Recipe #3
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup lemon juice
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

Check your Clothes
Wear light colored clothing. Mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors. I always forget which they are attracted to light or dark, so I think mosquitoes come out more at night when it's dark!

Burn a candle 
Light a candle but don't put it near you. The carbon dioxide it gives off will attract mosquitoes away from you. 

Blow them Away
Have a fan blowing near you. If the mosquito can't land on you due to the breeze, it can't bite you. This works great! I was outside on a friend's patio and there was a fan blowing. I got no mosquito bites that night!
  
More Topical Remedies
Put Listerine in a spray bottle and spray it around you and/or on you.

Mix a 50/50 ratio of Listerine and vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it on you and/or around you.

Apply a little Vicks Vaporub.

Apply vanilla extract to the pulse points.


There are some commercial, cruelty free, natural repellents that you can try.

All Terrain Herbal Armor. This DEET free natural repellent contains 6 oils that repel  insects. There is a great kids specific spray.

Jason Quit Bugging Me. This repellent contains Geranium, Soybean and Coconut oils. 

Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellent contains Rosemary, Lemongrass, Cedar, Peppermint, Citronella, Clove and Geranium oils to repel. 

Read More on Natural Repellents: 
20 Natural Mosquito Repellent Tips & Recipes- Natural Bug Control from my friend Joan at Tips Bulletin!


Mosquito Bite Remedy
So you tried to repel them but they bit you anyway!

My favorite remedy for a mosquito bite is a facial mask containing mud and/or clay. Apply a thick layer of mask to a new bite. It seems to lessen the allergic reaction. I feel the clay or mud draws out some of the mosquito saliva and it helps calm the histamine reaction. Carry one with you in your bag when you are outside and apply it as soon as you are bitten. I find it really helps! 

My favorite YonKa Masque 105 contains three types of clay, montmorillonite, bentonite and kaolin along with castor oil and the healing essential oils lavender, rosemary, thyme, geranium and cypress to help calm and heal the bite faster.

This works great on wasp and bees stings as well! Read about my wasp sting!

What is Clean Beauty?: Beautycounter Makeup Review

You may have been hearing the buzz phase "clean beauty" a lot lately. So what exactly is clean beauty, you ask? Like clean eating, clean beauty is being focused on the health of our bodies along with being mindful of our environment. Clean beauty is using beauty products from companies who strive to create products that are free from proven toxic chemicals, use ethically sourced chemicals, are not tested on animals, and use recyclable packaging. 

Many clean beauty companies are fighting for better regulation of the ingredients the go into cosmetic products. You may not realize it, but the FDA has very little regulation of cosmetics. Other countries are very strict about what goes into beauty products and have banned the use of many toxic, cancer causing, hormone disrupting chemicals.

Clean beauty includes all types of cosmetic products: body lotion and other body care products, facial skin care products, children's products, hair care products and makeup. The ingredients can be natural and organic but they don't have to be. There are many synthetic ingredients the are perfectly safe in cosmetic products. Those with allergies are usually better off with synthetic ingredients rather than botanically derived ingredients that they could react to.

It's something I've been doing for more than 35 years so I'm absolutely thrilled over the clean beauty movement!!! Finding beauty products I feel good about using on myself and my daughters has gotten a lot easier over the years, especially now. Life for me as a vegetarian has also gotten easier with the clean eating movement. Restaurants offer so many options now. Thirty years ago eating out was always difficult. I'm so happy about the clean eating and clean beauty movements!😁

There are lots of clean beauty brands. Some you may have heard of like Goop, some you probably haven't heard of. Let's talk about some of my favorite high performing clean makeup brands since I'm going to review some products from the clean beauty brand Beautycounter for you. 
 jill's beautycounter link
Quite often, a clean beauty makeup brand is a mineral makeup brand. I'm sure you've heard of Bare Minerals which started as a boutique brand in 1995. It was an early clean beauty brand as was Jane Iredale which began in 1994. There is also Youngblood which formed in 1996. Pur minerals is another mineral makeup brand I like.

Some clean beauty brands are organic like Juice Beauty which began in 2005. Vapour, which has signed The Campaign for Safer Cosmetics, is also organic. The organic, botanical and synthetic brand Ilia is a clean brand. RMS is another organic and mineral brand. W3ll People uses natural and organic ingredients.

I also like the natural herbal brand Honeybee Gardens, founded in 1995 and the way they donate to animal shelters. Then there is my beloved Aveda, which I began using in the back in the 80's.

Let's get to the Beautycounter products.

Beautycounter Makeup Review

Beautycounter uses a mix of clean, safe ingredients that are synthetic, botanical, and natural with some organic. The products are high performing quality and luxurious. This is a direct marketing company which sells it's products through consultants and through retail partnerships. They have skin care, body care, hair, and makeup products.

The products I am going to review are the  Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion, the Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation, the Touchup Concealer Pen, the Color Outline Eye Pencil, the Lengthening Mascara, the Satin Powder Blush, the Brow Gel, the Sheer Lipstick and the Lip Gloss. All of these products will create my Easy Summer Makeup Look with Beautycounter  makeup. I did a video on youtube so you can see how the products looks and how to apply them.

Click here to watch my Easy Summer Makeup Look Video!!!

The Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion
beautycounter adaptive moisture lotion
This is a light feeling, hydrating lotion that helps the skin look a bit more radiant. I find it to be perfect under makeup. It a has a light barely there fragrance and works well for sensitive, dry skin and combination skin types. It is packaged in a pump tube to keep the product fresh. This lotion has a light fresh scent. I have not had any irritation or breakout with my sensitive, combination skin and my skin looks great!

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion

The Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation
beautycounter foundation
I tried this foundation in the color Sand. The color blends very nicely with my skin. It is a light feeling moisturizing foundation with a dewy finish and barely a scent. It gives sheer to light coverage. I like more of a medium coverage to hide the redness my skin has in some spots so I build this foundation up with layers. 

I find it wears pretty well. There is no creasing through the day but it does fade a little bit for me. I experience fading with many makeup products so that is not unusually. It doesn't get oily and shiny looking as the day goes on which is good for me.

It's packaged in a soft plastic tube that has a tapered end. It is easy to squeeze out the just right amount so no product gets wasted. This product also travels really well in a purse or makeup bag.

The Tint Skin contains sodium hyaluronate which is a great ingredient for adding moisture to the skin plumping it up and making to look younger. I need as much plumping as I can get!!! I have to say, my skin does look really good since I started using it. It looks clearer and more even toned.  

I just wish it had a little more coverage. I find the Tint Skin also works great as a primer under a fuller coverage foundation. If you like a lightweight, natural feeling foundation, you will love this one! 

There are ten very blendable colors to choose from Porcelain, Linen, Sand, Honey, Golden, Tan, Chestnut, Mocha, Cocoa, and Espresso. $42.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation

The Touchup Concealer Pen
beautycounter concealer
I used this concealer in the color Medium 1. The packaging of the Touchup Concealer Pen makes it perfect for carrying in your purse or makeup bag to use for makeup touchup throughout the day. It is a pen that you click from the base to push the product into the attached applicator brush. 

Like the foundation, I find the coverage to be on the medium to light side. I typically like heavier coverage to hide my dark circles. I do find it to resists creasing and is not drying or irritating at all. There is barely any scent.

There are 6 colors to choose from Fair, Light, Medium 1, Medium 2, Dark and Deep. $33.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Touch Concealer Pen

The Color Outline Eye Pencil

beautycounter eye pencil
I got this eye liner pencil in Black. It's a nice dark black. This is the kind of eye liner pencil that you sharpen with a pencil sharpener which is my favorite kind of eye liner pencil. It has a sponge tip on the opposite side of the pencil for blending and smudging.

I find this pencil has just the right creaminess to go on smooth and easy. It stays on very well for me with just a bit of fading at the outer corners at the very end of the day. I have no smudging or migrating or irritation.

I love this pencil and will order it again and again!!! It comes in 4 colors. Black, Violet, Navy, and Brown. $24.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Color Outline Eye Pencil

The Lengthening Mascara
beautycounter mascara
I am a bit of a mascara snob. I'm very picky about it. It needs to be very black, lengthening, non clumping, non flaking, non fading, keep my lashes curled, be easy to work with for daily application and make my lashes look bold and simply amazing! I'm sorry to say, the Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara did not excite me, at all.😞 It's a nice mascara if you are looking for a very natural look, which many of you are.

To start with, the mascara tube is very skinny which makes it impossible to use the disposable mascara wands I use when I do makeup application on a client. I know this isn't a deterrent for most people. It's just a negative makeup artists. I find the this mascara goes on smoothly and even with no clumping. It takes many, many coats to build it up to a bold look. It stayed on well with no flaking and just a little fading. My straight lashes (curled with a lash curler) lashes did not stay curled. It removed with not much fuss. It just didn't do enough to make my lashes look fabulous.

Like I said, it's a nice mascara for a natural look. I want bold. There is also a Volumizing Mascara I haven't tried.

It comes in Black. $29.00

I give it ⭐ It's doesn't do enough for my lashes.
Shop for Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara

The Brilliant Brow Gel
beautycounter brow gel
To get back to positive, I love this one!!! I tried the brow gel in Medium. It's a good brown for me. It's packaged in a small tube with an applicator brush. This brow gel is great for darkening brow hairs, covering gray brows hairs and making the brows look fuller. It can be applied to the skin along with the brow hairs to create a filled in brow look.  

I find it stays on beautifully all day and feels soft on the brows. I've had no irritation and it removes easily. This product is available in four colors, Light which is a neutral beige, Medium which is a neutral medium brown, Dark which is a neutral dark brown, Soft Black which is a soft, cool black and clear. $24.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Brilliant Brow Gel

The Satin Powder Blush
beautycounter blush guava
Let me tell you how I feel about blush so you know where I'm coming from in my review. I'm not a huge fan of blush. I just think the streak of blush color on the cheekbones can be very unnatural looking. I prefer the look of a bronzer and highlighter on the cheeks instead a blush. If I wear blush, I wear is very soft and blended. That being said, let's get to it!

I got the Satin Powder Blush in the color Guava, a bright, matte, happy pink that looks like will work well for many skin tones. This pink looks very bright in the pan but not as bright and when applied to my medium beige skin. The application smooth and easy, and the blush stay on fairly well and doesn't get muddy or blotchy. I find it blends well for a soft look. I had a small amount of fading by the end of the day. It has a soft powdery barely there scent.

It's packaging is a heavy cardboard with will recycle easily.
There are seven colors: Melon, Nectar, Guava, Passionfruit, Raspberry, Sorbet and Date. $30.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Shop for Beautycounter Satin Powder Blush

The Sheer Lipstick
beautycounter lipstick lily
I purchased the sheer lipstick in Lily, a luminous neutral pink. It's a medium light color that has a nice satin glossy finish that I really like. It is natural looking and will look great on many skin tones. When you shop for lipstick on the Beautycounter site, they have an image of lipstick swatches with all the colors on the arms of models with three different skin colors. I find it quite helpful for choosing a color.  

This lipstick is very smooth feeling and moisturizing on the lips. It has a light vanilla scent. It gives your lips an easy natural glossy look. Because of it's super moisturizing quality, it is not a long wearing lipstick. I really like that I don't need to worry about there being any unsafe ingredients when I unintentionally eat the lipstick off of my lips while eating food!

If you are looking for bold color, this is not the lipstick for you. It's a sheer lipstick. You will prefer the Color Intense Lipstick. I prefer a bold pigmented lipstick myself. 

Read my Color Intense Lipstick Review

This is a good lipstick if you like a sheer wash of shiny color. This product is also a two for one product. You can also use this lipstick on your cheeks as a sheer cream blush. It has nice high quality packaging. This lipstick tube won't be cracking and falling apart! The Sheer Lipstick comes in 11 colors. $32.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐ It's too sheer for me.
Shop for Beautycounter Sheer Lipstick

The Lip Gloss
beautycounter lip gloss
Let me start by saying I'm not a fan of lip gloss so it's hard for me to review it. I like it's shiny look but I don't like how it feels, how my hair sticks to it and how quickly it wears off.  I do think lips that have a moist shine look fuller and younger that matte lips. 

Some people love lip gloss, though. That's why I purchased it. I know some of my clients will love it. In fact, the Beautycounter Lip Gloss is one of my client's favorite products!

I purchased the Lip Gloss in Bare Shimmer. It's a neutral to warm pink with a gold shimmer, a peachy pink nude. It's a nice color. This product also has a soft vanilla scent. It adds a lot of shine with a soft gold shimmer and looks nice over the Lily Sheer Lipstick.

For me, this gloss has a thick feel on my lips, as almost all glosses do for me. Again, I really like that I don't need to worry about there being any unsafe ingredients when I unintentionally eat the gloss off of my lips while eating food! It comes in twelve colors. $29.00

I give it ⭐⭐⭐ I'm not a lip gloss girl.
