SEPTEMBER 2015 | THE BEAUTY ROOM | Queen Bee Facial

September has arrived and I got one thing on my mind! National Honey Month! 

September | National Honey Month

Talking to you Queen Bee!!!Soap Solutions & I talk the beauty that is Honey and National Honey Month

Posted by The Beauty Room on Thursday, September 3, 2015

You've heard it before, but I am here to reiterate how magical honey is.
So many benefits: Full of enzymes, mineral, vitamins , It has anti- inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which are great topically and internally. My favorite aspect of it is that is high in gluconic acid, which helps dissolve the glue that holds the dead skin cells together on top of your skin. So it is great for a mild yet effective deep cleanse. It is also a natural humectant so it helps draw moisture to your skin. Basically, if you want fabulous skin you need to get you some RAW honey! So now that I have shared why it's so amazing here is the special for this month!


Queen Bee Facial 

Live like royalty with this facial fit for a Queen...Bee that is. This completely natural  facial uses honey to give your skin a deep cleanse, a relaxing yet effective massage to increase circulation and royal jelly masque to get your skin glowing. $50


SWEET ON THESE PRODUCTS...

This Brand I picked up at LiveWell in Newburgh. They have a really knowledgeable staff to help you choose some natural wellness alternatives to incorporate into your lifestyle.

It is inexpensive, "unheated, unfiltered and unprocessed straight-from-the-hive honey". Which is exactly what you want when you are thinking about taking it internally. I like having a good raw honey on hand to add to my clay mask or dab some right on my breakouts. The anti- bacterial and anti - inflammatory  properties help you notice a difference right away!  I also keep some in my kitchen for my morning tea!


The Beauty Room & Soap Solutions teamed up for a facial care line and this is one of our staples. The cleansing grains are gentle way to exfoliate the skin and soothe it simultaneously. We have incorporated powdered honey into this for those who aren't necessarily a fan of the sticky feel that comes with honey. You still get all the benefits just in a dry powdered form!


I absolutely love Laurel Whole Plant Organics & I am happy to announce I will be carrying the line in very soon at The Beauty Room. I love this pre-mixed mask has the added benefits of Strawberry, royal jelly and Grapefruit all super great ingredients for brightening your skin and your spirit!


I'll meet you at The Beauty Room for your honey fix!

The Season of Giving Continues | January Special | The Beauty Room

NEW is the hot word for January. Whether it be a new workout regimen, new clothes from holiday gifts or a new job. January is the big reboot month for everyone. 
Getting new things can be good for a change of pace. I mean, who doesn't love werk'in it in a new skirt that hugs them just right or wearing a new lipstick shade that brings life to their face? We all do.

As we get all of this new stuff, how are you making room for it? There are so many things that I bet aren't serving you anymore. As I was going through my clothes last night and cleaning out my makeup this morning I realized how much stuff I haven't worn in ages or haven't used at all.

I participated in a photo shoot last month (that will be featured in Love IT! Evv Magazine, yippie!) called Reuse, Repurpose, Reimagine. We used vintage dresses and some upcycled jewelry to dress the models. One of the former owners of the dresses was so thrilled to let us use the dresses, because although beautiful they weren't serving her anymore.
I want us all to use this concept this month and really all year! Instead of holding on to things we don't use why don't we pass them on to those who can enjoy them & put them to use!

I found a great local non- profit organization called the House of Bread & Peace. They help women get back on their feet and find jobs and homes. I think this is amazing. I am donating new & unused makeup and also gently worn business casual clothes to this organization to help these women have the same feeling that I have when I get dressed, and that's the power to take on the world.
If you would like to join me in donating, bring your gently worn business casual clothing, unused and sealed makeup, boxes of tampons or pads, deodorant, really just anything that a woman would need to get ready for her day. I will give you $10 to use towards your appointment with me! You give, I give, we all give!! And guess what? We all WIN too!! 

So here's to a fabulous 2015 & let the giving season continue!


Other Happenings for January 2015

Products you may want to try this month are : 

SKINCARE: Soap Solutions Perfectly Polished - It's still dry skin season. If you're wondering why the extra moisture you're putting on isn't soaking in, 9 times out of 10 you have flaky dead layers of skin blocking your healthy tissue. The best way to remedy that is with an exfoliator. This all natural mix of herbs & clay is perfect for gently removing dead cells.

MAKEUP : BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed good lord it is one of the most beautiful highlighters I have EVER used! I am obsessed! Give this a good swipe on the top of your cheekbones, right under your brows & on the in corners of your eyes. Be light handed as it is very pigmented! A little goes a long way!


The winner of Makeover Monday is Katie Slepsky!!
You too can enter to WIN a FREE facial or Makeup Lesson HERE! It will be announced the first Monday of each month!


When To Let Go | Tip Tuesday | The Beauty Room

I am a huge advocate for making room for new things. You can't allow more of anything into your life if your cluttering it with things that aren't serving you.

You can apply this to your makeup bag as well. As the holidays approach the people who love you will be getting you skincare & makeup products (fingers crossed). That means you need to let go of those products that aren't serving you anymore! Take a look over this list and make room for your new goodies that are on the way!

Kana Brown Makeup Artist

Keep in mind these will vary. Especially if you use more natural products that have little to no preservatives. This is just a reference. Always double check your packaging!
