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!

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!
