Livia pure skin care is an Organic & wild crafted skincare company. The owner Stephanie uses the purest ingredients in their raw form, with no nasties, no parabens, and uses only natural methods for product preservation! Did I mention livia pure skin care is a system? Well, it is! I love this! What a lovely way to show your customers exactly how your products are supposed to be used. For instance, cleansers are Step 1. Makes sense to me. Incidentally, I am starting at Step 3 with the Cucumber Spirulina Gel Masque. This masque screams Summertime! Cooling cucumber, soothing Organic aloe vera, spirulina(a natural algae), and the gel consistency all align with warm weather vibes! This gel masque instantly transports me to a far off sunny beach. Since it is snowing outside, I could not be happier about this side effect.

The Cucumber Spirulina Gel Masque is packed with incredible nutrients for your skin. Vitamin A & E are included and work wonders. Vitamin A & E are full of skin-loving antioxidants and anti-aging properties. These vitamins are essential for beauty queen caliber skin! Want to hear something even more interesting? This product contains Chlorophyll. Did you know Chlorophyll has an incredible impact for our skin? Me neither. It has magnificent healing, cleansing, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. You will also find Organic chamomile oil, Organic lavender oil, and tangerine oil inside this gel masque gem! All of these oils our fabulous cleansers and contain calming properties to enhance our skin's natural beauty. I am impressed with the quality and purposeful use of the ingredients in this livia gel masque. The best products are the ones that are not just thrown together willy nilly. Livia products have ingredients that all serve a purpose when it comes to our skin's nutrition.

The scent of the Cucumber Spirulina Gel Masque is just as scrumptious as the ingredients within! Livia pure skin care has captured the delectable fresh scent of cucumber in this unusual gel face masque. It is incredibly refreshing and relaxing. I have never used a "gel masque" before. I love the texture and feel of the Cucumber Spirulina Gel Masque on my face. This is a powerful face masque full of wonderful ingredients(as previously mentioned). So powerful, you only leave it on your face for 5 to 10 minutes. My skin feels very very soft and incredibly moisturized after one use. You can use this face masque daily! I will be placing this livia gel masque in the refrigerator for an extra refreshing experience!!!

What do you say my little cucumbers? Are you ready for a Cucumber Spirulina Gel Masque Giveaway by livia pure skin care?!??!

These are carefully curated products that are 100% vegan, 100% natural, paraben-free, preservative-free, and GMO-free. The owner of BEING is the lovely Cynthia!

Cynthia has a separate section of her website just to list all the ingredients she uses! You get to see exactly WHY an ingredient was used....LOVE THIS! Miss Cynthia gave me the opportunity to try her Radiance Incarnate Facial Nectar. My first thoughts of the Facial Nectar were, "I bet Cleopatra would've loved this!"

Being For Skin & Soul has encapsulated the most beautiful ingredients into one tiny glass bottle. Radiance Incarnate combines multiple healing oils to include some of my favorites: rosehip seed oil and argan oil. There is also an oil Cynthia uses in her Facial Nectar I have never seen before: Meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil is a beneficial anti-aging oil loaded with antioxidants and fatty acids. It can also help protect your face from harmful UV rays. The Facial Nectar is recommended for use at bedtime. Night time use gives the ingredients all-night to heal and rejuvenate your perty face. What does it smell like?  A floral forest! The essential oil combination includes Frankincense, Myrrh, and Rose Otto.

The scent is not only stress-relieving and uplifting, but all of the essential oils involved work to reduce wrinkles! Sign me up!!! The oil is beautiful, light, and easily penetrates the skin. I am not sure if I have ever used a PM facial oil before, but I love it! The relaxing nature of the Facial Nectar is perfectly suitable to bedtime. It does not feel greasy at all. You can barely tell you put it on after a few minutes of application. A truly spectacular product. My highest compliment is, "I would buy it again."

Who is ready for a Radiance Incarnate Facial Nectar.....GIVEAWAY!?!?

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint: Kitchen Cabinet Maintenance


Recently, I received a YouTube comment under my popular "How to paint your kitchen cabinets with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint" video. The gentleman wanted to know how my cabinets were holding up after 2 years. Below you will see(via a NEW YouTube video) the full spectrum of kitchen cabinet damage over 2 years. The place that incurred the most damage was the cabinets immediately below the sink. However, if you do a thorough job painting(2 to 3 coats), seal with wax(2 thin coats and allowing to dry 12 hours between applications), and maintain the wax(when the clear wax appears dull you should apply another thin coat) you will never have to re-paint. Alas, I have two toddlers and the clear wax applications were missed. Now, I have to re-paint AND seal with clear wax. Maintaining your chalk paint projects is par for the course, especially if it sees a lot of use!

In my kitchen, there are 3 areas of differentiated wear and tear. (1.) Underneath the sink, it looks pretty shabby. I am going to thoroughly clean and allow the area to dry. I will then take my Napoleonic Blue and paint with two layers(allowing to dry in between coats). I always wax the same day. Especially, if that area is anywhere near water. If water gets on your chalk paint projects it will spot and you will have to re-paint the affected areas....again. Lightly wax your project before you go to sleep and when you wake up apply the second coat of wax. I never use the wax brush. I use a clean rag that I can throw away after I am finished. With a rag, you can feel the wax is getting where it needs to be. You also can buff as you go with the rag. Wear a mask and gloves.

(2.) The cabinets with all our pots and silverware(which we use daily) show moderate wear and tear. I may renew the area with 1 coat of Napoleonic Blue and seal with 2 coats of clear wax. I say "may", because I might just seal it with wax and paint it next year. The beauty of Annie Sloan chalk paint is you can see all the imperfections and flaws. The paint is not flat. It has life!

(3.) The third area to discuss is the very ends of the cabinets where people just walk by. These areas are in excellent condition. They need nothing...not even waxed. After painting the entire kitchen 2 year ago, I have to touch up six drawers. That is pretty miraculous. Sometimes, maintenance is over-rated! A few chips here and there simply add character. You can touch up your chalk paint projects if you desire or don't. You do not have to call a chalk paint specialist. You are the chalk paint specialist!

Good Luck and if you have any questions be sure to leave them below! Who knows? I may do a chalk paint video for your questions!
