Malibu Beach Beauty Tea

Malibu Beach Beauty Tea

malibu beach beauty tea

Summer is almost here and that means spending more time socializing with others.  I want my skin to look it’s absolute best.  Sometimes your skin needs a good detox.  Especially after a very harsh winter.  That’s why I was excited to try Newport Skinny Tea’s Malibu Beach Beauty Tea.

I was given a sample of the tea from Newport Skinny Tea to try for a couple of weeks. Malibu Beach Beauty Tea helps to stimulate the skin and detox your system.  It can balance hormones that cause break outs and stimulate the production of collagen with an herb called gotu kola.

Malibu Beauty Beach Tea

I drink two cups of Malibu Beach Beauty Tea a day.  I have notice that my skin is smoother and clearer.  The tea has a pleasant taste and I don’t add any sweetener to it.  I would drink a cup in the morning and one before bed.

Instructions: Steep 1 Tbsp of tea per 1 cup of boiling water for 3 minutes, adjust strength as needed.

Malibu Beach Beauty Tea

I can recommend Malibu Beach Beauty Tea and will continue to drink it.   It helps to keep my skin smooth and clear.  Also, because I’m going through peri-menopause, it helps to regulate my hormones.  I have noticed that my peri-menopause symptoms have disappeared.

You can find out more about Malibu Beach Beauty Tea from their website, Newport Skinny Tea.

Subtle Green Vienne Regenerative and Restorative Lotion Review

Subtle Green 1

For the past few weeks I have been using Subtle Green’s Vienne Regenerative and Restorative Lotion.  I was immediately impressed with it at the beginning.  The scent is heavenly, it’s very lightweight and absorbs easily into the skin.

Subtle Green 2

I’ve noticed that skin is smoother, my skin tone is more even and my acne that I have been struggling with has almost disappeared.  Subtle Green’s Vienne Regenerative and Restorative Lotion increases circulation and helps to even out skin tone.


subtle Green 3

The ingredients are all natural.  Notice the first ingredient is aqua or water. My bottle has an expiry date of December 2015.  The dark colored glass bottle helps to preserve the lotion and limit its exposure to light.

I am very impressed with this product and highly recommend it to everyone!  To find out more about Subtle Green’s Vienne Regenerative and Restorative Lotion go to their website

Summer In The Chi: Beauty Products

So I’ve decided to take a break from talking about working out and weight loss to tell you about some of my favorite beauty products I discovered in Chicago.  If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that part of my workout regimen during my eight weeks in Chicago was walking in the sun and the heat. Well, I didn’t have the proper sun protection on my skin.  As a result my nose got sunburned.  I heard about Beauty Balms and decided to try one to help protect my skin from any further damage.
 Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Medium/Deep 1.0 Fl oz

A Beauty Balm helps to protect the skin.  It also hydrates, brightens and evens out skin tone.  I had a problem finding one in the right shade for me.  Luckily I found Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream. There are 5 shades from light to deep.  I really like the cream.  It goes on easily, has great coverage and is not heavy.  I wish it came in a bigger tube.  It’s kind of small.  I made sure to buy another tube before leaving Chicago.  It’s available at Target, Walgreens, and

Not only did my nose get sunburned, my lips did as well. They were dry and peeling.  I always wear lipstick on my lips, but that wasn’t enough of course.  I needed something to help heal my lips.  I found Neosporin Overnight Renewal Therapy
 Neosporin® Lip Health™ overnight renewal therapy

I put it on my lips every night and noticed within a few days my lips stopped peeling and were soft again.  To protect my lips from the sun I now use Neosporin Daily Hydration Therapy.  It locks in moisture and has a SPF 20 to protect against sunburn. Available at Walgreens and find out more about these products at

Neosporin® Lip Health™ daily hydration therapy
Whenever I’m at Target I always find a new product to try.  I was in the new Target on State Street and saw Target’s Up & Up Exfoliating Cucumber Cleansing Towelettes.  Not only does it clean and exfoliate with cucumber, but it also has aloe and green tea.  Skin feels clean and smooth after using the towelettes.  It removes all of the dirt and make-up without leaving any residue.  You don’t have to rinse your skin after using it.

Finally while at my salon I was reading a magazine. My hairdresser and I became mesmerized by this new lip gloss shade by Estee Lauder.  It’s called Chaotic Current from the Pure Color line. It’s a limited edition color.Estee Lauder Violet Underground Pure Color Gloss CHAOTIC CURRANT

A beautiful deep burgundy shade. I tried it on at Nordstrom before buying.  Loved the way it looked on me. It’s not sticky but did stay on all night even after eating dinner. It will be my signature color for Fall. Go to to find the right shade for you!
