Do Your Products Have "Chirality"?


Beautystoredepot.com wants to know...

Are you using skin products with Chirality? 





Green and clean since 2002, Sircuit Skin Cosmeuticals are 100% fresh.  I was first attracted to their clever names, like “X-Trap” and “Cloud 9" but now, I am attracted to what these amazing cleansing and treatment formula's have done for my skin!  

The key to this extraordinary collection of skin treatment solutions is the extensive use of Chiral (molecular separation or purification) technology. 

Now, you’re probably wondering what this strange sounding word, "Chiral" or "Chirality," (pronounced kirul-it-tee) has to do with safe ingredients and effective skin care products.  And why, should we, lovers of quality and responsive products, want to put anything with “Chirality” on our skin?
There are many reasons, and it can sometimes get very scientific, but to put it simply "Chirally Correct" refers to the form in which the ingredient/nutrient is delivered to your skin, understanding that the absorption of that ingredient takes place ONLY for that portion of a nutrient that fits the cell receptor.

Chiral ingredients (that are put through a purification process to separate the molecules) are "made" in a lab. While many ingredients that are in our products are derived from natural ingredients, they cannot be considered to be purely natural because of the extra processing or purifying.


Still confused?  So was I, but then I used them and discovered that science and beauty really do go hand in hand!

All ingredients/nutrients are composed of molecules that are mirroring images of each other – like, for example… your hands, or your eyes or your feet are all identical opposites; biological examples of mirror images of each other. In virtually all aspects, the two "parts" are physically and chemically identical, except for one critical area: How they link up and interact, or more importantly, react, with other molecules in the body.
Enough of the science! Now let’s talk about the beauty and how using these products have made such a difference in my skin. 

Skin care professionals tout a daily regimen for beautiful skin, and I found “The 7 Essentials Collection” was the perfect way to get to know these innovative products.

A.M. Routine:

Step 1: X-Trap + - Splash face with warm water, apply a small amount to fingertips and massage in circular motions into a lather on face and neck. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Step 2: Molecular Mist + - Gently mist over your face and neck, avoiding contact with your eyes and press into skin. Let dry. Use any time after cleansing or as needed to refresh, protect and restore moisture balance.
Step 3: White Out + Put a tiny amount onto your finger (use your ring finger for less pressure and always in towards your nose) tapping gently around cleansed eye area in a circular motion following your bone structure.
Step 4: Day Care + - Pump a small amount onto your fingertips and gently apply over entire face (don't forget to include your neck!).  Day Care™+ is non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types.

P.M. Routine

Step 1:  X-Trap + Splash face with warm water, apply a small amount to fingertips and massage in circular motions into a lather on face and neck. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Step 2: Sircuit Addict + Use on clean skin before applying moisturizer. Dispense with dropper a pea size amount on the back of hand and apply to face with light tapping motions avoiding eye area.
Step 3: Molecular Mist + Gently mist over your face and neck, avoiding contact with your eyes and press into skin. Let dry. Use any time after cleansing or as needed to refresh, protect and restore moisture balance.
Step 4: Cloud 9 + Scoop out a small amount and apply to face and neck using gentle upward movements.

Treat your skin to extra special products: 
2-4 times per week: Sir Activ +: Splash clean, washed face with warm water and place a small amount into your hands. Smooth on with gentle circular motions. Leave on your skin for 3-5 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Follow with moisturizer. Can be used either morning or night and 2-4 times a week depending on skin condition.

As with any product, I encourage you to look at your labels, and understand what you are putting on your skin.  Simply put, I think we all can agree that idea of slathering chemical filled lotions on our bodies is probably not too good. 

This anti-aging regimen will satisfied any desire for quality and ground breaking skin care products.  Sircuit Skin Cosmeceuticals are always designed to be "body friendly" and to protect the moisture balance (pH balance) in your skin, with an extremely effective, simple "be good to yourself" approach.

Santa's Picks at Beautystoredepot.com!




The Beautystoredepot Staff 

Has Been Very Good This Year!

 What Products Top Their Gift Wish List?!




Mike's Wish List -  American Crew Fiber and Billy Jealousy LiquidSand

Mike likes American Crew Fiber to protect his hair against moisture loss and 
to mold and sculpt his shorter hair in any style. "It's like therapy for my hair when it looks dull and lifeless," said Mike, and I get a stylish look in just a few minutes!"

Mike has also added Billy Jealousy LiquidSand Facial Cleanser  to his daily routine. "Exfoliating daily actually makes shaving smoother," he said, rubbing his chin. "It's not as abrasive as a scrub, yet better than a face wash." It gently exfoliates and nourishes while removing any debris and dead cells.                 
Jade's Wish List - PÜR HydraGel Lift Under Eye Perfecting Primer and Phyto Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm 

Jade says she "Love, love, loves the PUR Hydragel Lift Primer!" Her concealer and eye makeup is wearing much longer throughout the day, with a lot less transfer and creasing. 

The trick is to apply with the ring finger, NOT swipe the tube over the entire eyes. Use the ring finger to rub the top of the stick a few times (to load a bit of product onto the finger) then quickly swipe the finger with the product over the undereye area, with a few quick taps to get the product all over the area up to the lash line. 

Jade also loves Phyto- Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm as it's "the best product ever for frizzy hair and humidity."  Achieve the perfect blow-out at home with this non-chemical straightening treatment that's heat-activated to hydrate and protect hair.



Jenna's Wish List - iS Clinical Active Serum and G.M. Collin A.G.E. Total Defense

Jenna's asked for iS Clinical Active Serum as "it's one of Beautystoredepot's best sellers, and now I know why!" Active Serum not only reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also addresses concerns such as uneven skin tone and acne. This serum is great for both women and men!

G.M. Collin AGE Total Defense is another of Jenna's favorites because she loves how it brightens and evens out her skin's tone and texture. Since this product combines 8 antioxidants and 5 peptides to combat all the visible signs of aging "it's ideal for active women and men of all ages, even with an urban lifestyle!"


Catherine's Wish List - Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation and Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Diamante Cristalli Liquidi Illuminating Serum

The Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation is Catherine's favorite foundation, as it smooths across her skin easily, and blends just right to give the look that she's actually wearing no foundation at all!  Her color choice is Naturalle, and it matches her skin tone exactly, giving a beautiful finish.


Catherine also wished for the  Alfaparf Diamond Cristalli Liquidi Illuminating Serum.  This product is a great finisher for hair as it's light, yet very rich and penetrating.  She says "the smell is so fresh and so clean! All in all, I'd say I feel very luxurious when I use it." 


Lilly's Wish List - Avène TriAcneal Night Smoothing Lotion  and Phyto Secret de Nuit Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream for hair

Lilly loves the Avène Line! "The Avene Triacneal Night Smoothing Lotion product is very pleasant and I use it nightly. My skin is definitely improving!" she says when speaking of this night lotion.  This intensive nighttime skin care reduces appearance of residual scarring and blemishes, soothes and refines skin texture and restores  radiance.  

She also raved about Phyto Secret De Nuit Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream for the hair.  Before going to bed, Lilly brushes her hair and then spreads a walnut sized amount of the product through her hands.  It's time-released for night-long intense hydration, nourishment and repair. 


Ted and Leroy chose Beautystoredepot.com Gift Certificates!

"I not really sure how to pick out products for my girl friend, so I'm going to play it safe and give her a gift certificate," says Ted. 

"My Mom hinted to me that she wanted to shop here, so what better gift for her than a gift certificate!" says Leroy.

From The Beautystoredepot.com Family To Yours...

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Pevonia Lips Don't Lie!


The other day, while driving in heavy rush-hour traffic, I glanced in the rear view mirror, and caught myself pursing my lips in an angry way and really noticed my lips lines!  One cause of lip lines is, unfortunately, using our lips!

Every time you purse your lips to drink through a straw or whistle a tune, you create folds in the skin. Over time, the repetition of this pursing motion can result in permanent creases and lines around your mouth.

Who doesn’t want younger looking lips!  Young skin benefits from an abundance of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and other natural factors that will keep them firm, supple, and elastic.  Aging is inevitable and avoidable, but with effective products and a conscious effort to change habits that can create lip lines, we can make our lips look more youthful and full.

Natural substances like collagen and elastin deplete over time, which causes our complexions to become drier, less elastic, and less able to retain their shape.  In addition, repetitive motions (smiling, frowning) begin to leave lasting impressions in the form of wrinkles—including lip lines.

One product I love is Pevonia LipRenew Plump and De-Age Treatment.  I can really feel this treatment working from the moment it’s applied!  It makes my lips look fabulous, and keeps them hydrated and voluminous for a fuller and more “pouty” appearance.   In addition, it offers intense hydration while blurring lines, wrinkles and other imperfections.  

Since my lips are thin and my mouth is smaller, this is my new go-to for my lips morning and night!

Apply this to the lips in the morning and night after cleansing and toning face with one of Pevonia’s wonderful array of products.


Start with a cleanser like Pevonia Botanica Power Repair Hydrating Cleanser, then tone with Pevonia Power Repair Age Correction Hydrating Toner.

These two power products together contain collagen and elastin to helps improve tone and texture. Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture, plumping skin and diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E provides antioxidant benefits to protect and nourish, plus licorice root extract works to even skin tone to reveal flawless-looking skin.

Adding the powerful LipRenew “lipo-filler” as a finishing touch will give lips and face an instant lift. I am thrilled with how the fine lines around my lip are now diminished to almost non-existent!

Here are some other tips to keep lip-lines from forming and diminishing them: 
  • Avoid smoking: Smoking is one of the best ways to ensure you’ll experience lip lines. In fact, lip lines are often referred to as “smoker’s lines.” The repetitive lip-puckering motion of smoking eventually becomes a part of your skin. Meanwhile, smoking also bombards you with free radicals, which destroy healthy cells, breaking down collagen and encouraging skin wrinkling.
  • Stay hydrated: Keeping lips moisturized during the day with an intensely hydrating lip product is also essential. 
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines: If you wear makeup, the lip product you use could make all the difference. First, use a lip liner to keep lipstick in place and to prevent lipstick bleeding. Second, choose softer, more neutral colors. These, along with a touch of gloss, will help lips appear fuller and more youthful.
  • Avoid tanning. Too much sun exposure is one of the worst things you can do for your skin in general; your lips are no exception!
Pevonia was launched in 1991 with cruelty-free formulas and post-consumer recyclable/reusable packaging.  They incorporate delicately extracted phyto-organic and natural ingredients to create earth and skin friendly products that are mother-nature approved.  Protecting the earth and maintaining an affinity with nature and its precious resources is an integral part of Pevonia's philosophy.  Pevonia International is a member of the Organic Trade Association.

The Joy of ENJOY Hair Care Products



I’ve had a career in the beauty industry for several years, so believe me when I say “I have seen numerous hair products come and go like the seasons.” 

Many of us are beauty product “junkies” and without a doubt, we will always want to try and buy the latest and greatest products to use on our hair, skin and body!  And that includes men, too!

Here at Beautystoredepot.com we get asked this question “What is the best shampoo for my hair type?" This may sound like a simple question for a product expert, but giving a simple answer to a customer can be much more complicated! 

Overall, I absolutely love the shampoos and conditioners, as well as the styling and finishing products. The cleansing and conditioning products are highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way.  Here’s an added bonus!  The conditioners can also be used for moisturizing the skin or shaving!


Founded in 2003, ENJOY line of shampoos,conditioners and styling aids focus on providing superior manageability without stripping your hair of its natural defenses.

ENJOY shampoos and conditioners gently cleanse, moisturize and smooth while relieving stressed out hair and scalp. My hair is medium thick and has a tendency to be wavy in the climate variations in Central Texas, and ENJOY’s products are perfect fit to smooth and control my sometimes persnickety hair behavior.

Since all ENJOY products are sulfate-free, and have an optimal pH of 5.0-6.0, those with color-treated or processed hair can quit worrying that their color will just wash down the drain with every shampoo.   Sulfate-free isn’t huge concern for me, as I don’t have color-treated hair, so I chose the 
ENJOY Hydrating Shampoo and its companion ENJOY Hydrating Conditioner to try first.

The Hydrating Shampoo did an excellent job of shampooing my roots to tip....without drying it out. I I found my hair smoother and softer, and interestingly enough it also stayed much cleaner between shampoos. 

And the Hydrating Conditioner provided excellent conditioning within just a minute or two, leaving my hair tangle-free and smelling great.

If you’re not familiar with why sulfates can be your beauty nemesis, here are a few reasons:

  • You have naturally coarse or dry hair: Sulfates can zap even more moisture from already parched strands and diminishing shine.
  • You color your hair: Sulfates may damage color. However, in this instance, it’s best to choose a sulfate-free shampoo coupled with a conditioner specifically designed for color treated hair. 
  • According to the American Academy of Dermatology, sulfates can cause skin irritation, so if you have sensitive skin—especially in cases of eczema—you may also benefit from sulfate-free products.
Today, my hair is full of body, not frizzy and manageable! All of the products smell fantastic, so what’s not to love!

Turn Over A New Leaf with Glytone


As the seasons change from fall to winter, your skin care regime should change as well, including some TLC for your face, arms and legs…basically, your entire body!  In the winter, it's not just your face and hands that need a little extra attention.

Consider taking the time during your daily shower to cleanse and soften the body with Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash which is designed to cleanse and soften while providing the exfoliating and revitalizing benefits of 8.8% Glycolic acid concentrate. 

Think of your body like a tree, covered in a layer of protective bark, and when you shower, your body cleansing should involve polishing away the oldest and loosest skin cells to reveal the living cells underneath.  This allows the freshly exfoliated skin to absorb the benefits of emollients when you slather on your moisturizing body lotion or cream. 

Gentle, yet effective, this amazingly cleansing body wash removes excess oils, debris and dirt, leaving the body feeling fresh and rejuvenated.  This unique gentle exfoliating wash softly helps in shedding old skin cells and awakening a rejuvenated new skin layer!  Skin is radiant, soft and healthy.

And speaking of moisturizing your body, it only makes sense to follow your a daily and diligent Glytone exfoliating regime with the Glytone Exfoliating Body Lotion. This richly-nourishing body lotion is especially formulated to moisturize and correct skin texture imperfections on the body, while softening and smoothing to reveal younger, more vibrant looking skin.


Dull skin cells need proper upkeep. Here are some points to consider:
  • Basic cleaning: Even dead skin needs a regular bath. If you leave your dry skin cells undisturbed, it will mix with sweat and dirt to form a very open platform for bacteria to live on your skin. Keeping up with a basic cleaning ritual is paramount for your best body skin. 
  • Moisturizing: Ordinary soaps are harsh and drying. They strip away the natural oils in your skin. Unfortunately, this dry skin loses its natural protection against bacteria, which can then slip in through cracks and fissures in your skin. To keep your defenses up, rub lotion on your hands when they become dry (for many people, that means after every washing), and use gentle cleansers on other parts of your body (like your face).
  • Exfoliation: Some people swear by special scrubs and brushes for removing dead skin cells. While exfoliation may improve the feel of your skin and temporarily enhance its appearance, over exfoliation can cause you to end up with dry, inflamed skin. So if you’re an exfoliating junkie, limit your sessions to twice a week, and moisturize your skin to replace the natural oils you’ve just scrubbed away.
The Glytone KP Kit contains the Exfoliating Body Wash and Exfoliating Body Lotion, as well as a body pouf.  It utilizes the benefits of Free Glycolic Acid to help reduce specific skin conditions, such as Keratosis Pilaris, red bumps, and rough, bumpy skin. Great for keratotic or dry skin.

Feel fresh and scrubbed with the entire line of Glytone products just in time for the Holiday Season!

Miracle of Avène Thermal Water Cold Cream



Who would have ever guessed that the main ingredient in Avène Cold Cream was discovered by a horse who was playing in the mountains of Avène, France!

Legend has it that in the South of France in 1736, a horse with a skin condition belonging to a local nobleman, was let free to roam the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France.  Every day the horse would drink and roll in the water from a natural spring.  Miraculously, the horses’ skin condition was completely cured! 

The microflora, called Aqua Dolomiae, makes this thermal spring water so effective. It comes from deep within the earth and produces the active substances found in the Avène Thermal Spring Water.  Used in all Avène products, this water gives these products its significant anti-itch, anti-inflammatory properties, helping to stimulate the skin’s natural protection.

The “miracle of Avène” water is special because of its mineral content and its quality, both of which are very consistent.  This remarkable biological property combined with the well-known mineral properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water ensures gentleness and tolerance, creating a unique double signature that does not exist anywhere else in the world.

If you’re looking for a great cold cream, Avène has entire collection of Cold Cream based skin products that are rich and moisturizing.  This Cold Cream formula combines Avène Thermal Spring Water, pure white beeswax and pharmaceutical grade paraffin oil to moisturize, nourish, and protect the skin from the drying effects of environmental aggressors that compromise the skins moisture barrier.

Start with Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Gel for the face, or the Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Bar for both face and body to gently cleanse the skin.  Follow with the Avène Cold Cream and Avène Cold Cream Nourishing Body Lotion to deeply nourish the skin.  Next apply the specialty products such as the concentrated Avène Cold Cream Hand Cream, Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm or Avène Cold Cream Lip Cream

Suitable for infants and children as well, these products are cool and soothing to the touch, and after about a week of use, the Avène Cold Cream Nourishing Body Lotion will stop your skin from flaking, all without staining your clothes or competing with your perfume.

Tales From Behind The Makeup Chair: Make-up Hacks - The Mascara Edition

Hack #1 

So, you have somewhere special to go – A special date, wedding, portraits, or an awesome party…you know what I mean. Or you just simply are getting ready for your daily grind. Either way, there is the occasional dreaded threat of the unintentional mascara smear. Getting rid of it quickly without having to start all over IS possible. It’s amazing so get ready….you simply wait for the mascara to dry. Once the mascara is COMPLETELY dry, you should be able to take a clean makeup brush and simply brush it or Q-tip it away! That’s it. This also works with waterproof versions of products, but may require a little more Q-tip power. Occasionally you might need to put a little more eye shadow or powder on once you’ve brushed it away, but that’s about the extent of work that needs to go into this correction. No need to start over and do massive reapplications! This trick also works with liquid eye liners.



Hack #2

You’ve finally found a mascara that is absolutely perfect (I adore the PUR Big Look Mascara as well as Revitalash Volumizing Mascara) and does everything you want it to do. Before you know it, it’s drying up well before its expiration time. Here’s something you may not realize and a possible hack to solve your problem. Every time the mascara wand is put back into the tube it brings in some air, which over time can dry your mascara out prematurely. As long as the mascara is NOT past its healthy use by time, you can add a drop or two of sterile eye saline solution to bring your mascara back to life. Voila!


Hack #3

This last mascara hack is a very old trick among many a make-up artist. If you are looking to had a bit more volume to your lashes, try applying baby powder to them - In moderation of course. After applying one layer of mascara, gently apply a slight amount of baby powder using either a Q tip or a clean eye shadow brush. I prefer the latter due to the risk of getting Q tip fibers in your eyes.  Afterwards, since your eyelashes will look pale, apply additional coats of mascara. If you aren’t a fan of using this technique there are a few wonderful mascara primers to help boost volume and length to your lashes. Not only do they help amplify your lashes, but they also help keep mascaras from flaking. I love the Revitalash Volumizing Primer, Blinc Black Eyelash Primer in Black, and Glo Skin Beauty Lash Thickener and Conditioner.
  

If you feel like your lashes are just lackluster and you would love to longer fuller lashes, I have had wonderful results with the Revitalash Advanced. I cannot speak highly enough of this product. I’ve never had lashes so long in my life. GrandeLASH is also very effective in helping eyelash growth and enhancement. 


Stay tuned for foundation and powder hacks in the next edition of “Tales From Behind the Make-Up Chair”. Until then – Happy Beautifying! 

XOXO

Osmosis Skincare: A Holistic Protocol for Dark Circles and Puffiness

This week's blog is courtesy of Osmosis Skincare.



Back-to-school season is upon us which means early alarm clocks, fast-paced mornings, and long, jam-packed days. We live for the hustle too, but sometimes the delicate skin under our eyes just can't keep up (we're all guilty of rocking the "indoor sunglasses" look). Luckily, we have just the tools you need to combat those dark circles and puffy eyes! Read on to discover the causes behind your "raccoon eyes" and which Osmosis products can help you can tackle mornings like a boss and go confidently without those shades all day long.

There are many more causes of dark circles and puffiness than just lack of sleep, and contrary to what you may think, excess caffeine can actually make it worse! So even though you may need multiple cups of coffee to make you feel more awake, it won't necessarily make you look as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. This common skin condition can also be caused by kidney strain, use of NSAIDs (a.k.a. aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.), anxiety, or heavy stress. So how in the world do we get rid of these pesky "bags"? Our super-simple protocol will do the trick!








Choose a Vitamin A Serum for your skin type.
Vitamin A will help firm and tighten loose or "puffy" skin and is gentle enough to use on the delicate skin around your eye. It increases nutrients, collagen production, and elasticity for overall healthier skin.










Reinforce with a specialty Eye Serum.
Refresh or Refresh PM will serve as back-up to your vitamin A, helping to firm and effectively reduce puffiness, lines, and dark circles. Refresh PM provides an intensely-moisturizing affect to help restore a healthy barrier to the skin around the eye.








Go Internal.
The next step to gaining long-term results and change with your dark circles and puffy eyes is to target the internal source. Inner Harmony helps to harmonize toxins in the organs, such as the kidneys, as well as brings balance to your overall internal functionality. Restore is another excellent tool targeting internal wellness that will repair and replace lost oxygen over time which contributes to those pesky dark circles and other signs of aging in the skin.



Pair these products with a mega increase in your water intake and watch those dark circles fade and the puff deflate! Shop your protocol HERE.

It's Time to Tan!

Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner!  As soon as the temperature starts to rise, I begin staring at my white legs and arms realizing it's TIME TO TAN!

  • Always exfoliate before tanning!

  • Always apply INSTANT tanners in small amounts and areas so you can be mindful of possible streaking
Until next time....stay beautiful!

Hello Lashes!

Have you ever wanted to wake up and have amazing lashes without any makeup?  Me too!!....but, I was always hesitant to purchase any product that I had to place anywhere close to my eyes.  With allergies and contacts, it can often be difficult just to get my contacts in much less add some mascara ontop of already red, dry, agitated eyes.  I did FINALLY give it a try and I am SO happy that I did!



I started using GrandeLASH about 2.5 months ago.  The application is incredibly easy!  You literally just take the brush out and apply it directly to your upper lash line once or twice a day.  Even better?  I haven't had any discomfort or additional eye issues with use....thank goodness!  I try to apply GrandeLASH everyday, but there have been a few times that I wasn't able to. Good news is that I am still seeing drastic results. Results will vary and I am a few months from 40, so it did take me longer to see results than what a younger gal may see (this is also advised in the product information).  I am thankful I didn't just give up on the product because I am very pleased with the results.




GrandLASH is now a permanent part of my daily regiment and I hope to continue to see more length and fullness.

Until next time....stay beautiful!
