    Fall In Love With Tammy Fender!

    If you haven’t experienced the beautiful skincare range of Tammy Fender, you better go check it out—right now!

    Simply put, the Tammy Fender range combines holistic skincare with custom blended formulations in a range of nourishing lotions, oils, cleansers and more that have physical benefits, as well as emotional and spiritual benefits (and goodness knows I need help with the latter!). It’s not like any other skincare line out there, nowhere near.

    I was lucky enough to try out the Rose Geranium & Tangerine Body Lotion as well as the Bulgarian Rose Water.

    The Bulgarian Rose Water: I didn’t know it at the time of using this delightful and fragrant water, but a single drop of this stuff requires more than 7,000 petals. That’s a lot of flowers, people. And no wonder they go to great lengths extracting this stuff—it’s rejuvenating and refreshes the skin. And it smells divine, too. It’s made to “strengthen the center of one’s emotional being” while also strengthening and toning up the skin tissue. Grab some of this and dab it over your face and neck in the morning and evening—you’ll notice a difference almost immediately. Add in 20 minutes of meditation and you’re all set for a renewal like no other.


    The Rose Geranium & Tangerine Body Lotion: Here’s how the Tammy Fender website described this lotion—“The nourishing power of a crème with the delicacy of a lotion offering total ‘beauty & luxury in a bottle.’” And yep, that’s pretty much what this lotion is—nourishing power. The physical benefits of this sweet lotion include a boosting of the immune system, restoring moisture balance, and of course, leaving skin feeling soft, supple and nourished. Apply it to slightly damp skin in the morning of evening. Add it to your beauty routine after a soak in the tub and you’re laughing. Laughing with super soft and supple skin, that is.

    Naturally @CherlynSkincare

    Vancouver skincare line Cherlyn is doing something different. A natural blend means all the ingredients are on a ‘need’ basis and all harsh chemical preservatives are eliminated in the products in this line.

    Wit the 3 products, Purifying Cleanser, Clarifying Serum and Bio-Restore Cream, these all natural products will make a huge difference in your skincare routine. I recently received the 3 products in their sample size package in the mail for review and here is what I thought.

    Cherlyn Purifying Cleanser with Malic & Tartaric Acid from Citrus Fruits – I liked the smell of this the best and it is fresh and recognizable. The cleanser got off all my makeup but not my mascara. You only need to use a tiny bit because it suds up a lot. I will use for a week and see how my skin reacts!

    Step 2: Cherlyn Clarifying Serum with Alpha Hydroxy Acids from Bilberry – This was a bit more watery than I expected but I don’t have a ton of experience with serums. I know that generally they feel a bit sticky if you use too much. It is obvious that Cherlyn put a ton of research and effort into each and everyone of these products.

    Step 3: Cherlyn Bio-Restore Cream with Beta Hydroxy Acid from Willow Bark – This reminds me a bit of my favorite Burt’s Bees Night Cream. I think it is the Willow Bark ingredient they both have. I am not a fan of the smell of this but I like the texture, the weight and the quick absorption.

    Overall, I like the full-size airless pumps. It looks sleek, high end but also natural. I love the overarching message of this brand which is “love for the self brings us joy, peace and happiness”.

    All products are formulated using The Cherlyn Blend containing fruit-derived Alpha Hydroxy Acids from bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon, as well as Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), the nutrient form of sulfur.
