As a child, my grandmother used to cure all my season-round sicknesses with old Indian remedies, many of them including honey. One that really works for sore throats is a blend of honey and turmeric. So, since I’ve experienced the powers of honey personally, I’m to excited share the the benefits that Sarah McNamara, owner of Miracle Skin Transformer, an Australian skin care brand, has used in the products, using the healing powers of honey as well.
The new ingredient for healthy glowing summer skin is Manuka Honey from Australia. It is made from bees that drink nectar from the Manuka Bush native to New Zeeland and southern Australia. Miracle Skin Transformer is the company bottling this unique ingredient in the form of a healing balm and a cleanser. Unless you live in Australia, this is probably the best way to get your dose of Manuka Honey. Manuka honey has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties 100 times stronger than all other honeys. It also has health benefits like no other honey. It not only has digestive benefits but also topical benefits: healing wounds, burns, acne, athlete’s foot, sunburn, chapped or cracked lips, sores, and skin irritations.
This honey is available by the bottle as well. However, most of the ones I found are at least $40+. Miracle Skin Transformer is incorporating this fantastic honey into a HydroActive Cleanser and Heal Everything Balm, both for under $30. According to the brand the Heal Everything Balm (shown above) is perfect for this summer. It can be used after Sun exposure, irritated skincaused by waxing, shaving, or other treatment, to alleviate irritation from bug-bites, burns, or stings, and to reduce irritation and redness caused by chaffing and other sports related activities. It is especially great for sensitive skin. This product will be available starting August for $26 at Sephora stores nationwide & Sephora Online, Bergdorf Goodman, NY, Nordstrom Online, and the company website.
The next product that has the powerful, Manuka Honey is the NewHydroActive Cleanser(shown above) which retails for $24 and is available on the Home Shopping Network online, Sephora online and the company website. The cleanser effectively removes oils, makeup, and dirt while still maintaining the skins natural moisture levels.Theproduct has a whipped texture but when mixed with water turns into a soothing foamy texture. The cleanser is infused with M3 Complex, Manuka Honey, Vitamins, and EcoPhysalis.
I’d never used anything by Burt’s Bees, but after trying their facial cleansing towelettes, it’s safe to say that I’m a die-hard fan! My face just feels sooooo GOOD during and after using them, that I end up using like two or three at time just to pro-long that fresh and clean feeling! The pre-moistened towelettes are infused with powerful antioxidant White Tea Extract that removes dirt, oil and make-up, no rinsing required! It’s also non-comedogenic, petrochemical free, phthalates free, paraben and sodium lauryl free, and it’s not tested on animals… WINNER!
For my early birthday present, my girl Amanada hooked me up with a Clarisonic Mia. I had no idea what this was even though I have seen it in Sephora and in magazines. I have never really had problems with my skin but the New York city summer heat coupled with my impromptu sleep over at his place definitely created more blemishes than I like.
Beauty products are no longer just lipstick, powder and paint! Technology like the Clarisonic has taking cleansing to a whole new level. This is a hand held deep pore cleanser that is RECHARGEABLE, WATER PROOF and reveals beautiful skin in 1 minute. How you ask? Well the smart people who made Sonicare toothbrush invented this to remove makeup, and minimize pores and improve tone and texture.
I’m in love with my Clarisonic! How will I ever go back to a muslin cloth or a lil scrubby loofah?
Here are some fun facts
1. 6x more makeup removal than manual cleansing
2. 61% greater absorption of Vitamin C after use
3. moves over 300x per second (woah!)
Like it hand held mini car wash ha ha
This is a beauty must have for everyone! Check it out at Sephora or @clarisonic on Twitter 🙂
