I love the look of long, thick eyelashes. Being a natural blondie with thin, fine lashes, I sought the assistance of lash extensions for several months. And they were magnificent - the length and volume I desired plus I didn't need mascara! "This is too good to be true!" I thought to myself. And, sadly, it was; my lashes melted off during exercise and hot yoga, meaning I had to return to the lash bar every 10-14 days for a refill. As gentle as my aesthetician was, my natural lashes suffered a toll. She recommended I take a break from the extensions every 3 or 4 months. When I did, it was torture - the extensions left my natural lashes short, broken, and even thinner than before I started. No amount of mascara could cover up the damage left by the lash extensions. My dermatologist gave me a prescription for a topical lash-growth. It turns out, this popular medication is actually an off-label glaucoma treatment with a raft of side effects; among other things, it can leave your eyelids red and irritated and may darken the color of your eyes (!!!!!) I knew the only thing for me to do was search for a natural solution; and find it, I did! Behold a natural lash growth serum with no side effects containing only a few ingredients that you likely already have in your medicine cabinet...Read More

Oh, skincare ingredients; I've tried so many, each claiming to be "it".

So, I bite: I try it, slather it on my face, say a prayer and.....nothing. So, I decided I would go back to what's worked for me previously: good old fashioned Vitamin C. It may not be a new ingredient, but there's a reason it's been around so long: it simply works. Whether you're a long time Vitamin C devotee, or fairly new to this ingredient, I've rounded up the top 7 ways including Vitamin C into your skincare routine will benefit you.Read More
