Skincare Travel Kits: August Product Feature

 

oseaI’ve chosen our Tu’el and OSEA travel kits as our monthly product feature. That means when you purchase one of these kits you get double Rewards points to use toward a treatment Enhancement like lash tinting, a special peel during a facial, or extra attention during a massage.

TravelA compact kit is perfect for the gym or travel and are TSA certified!  Both Tu’el and OSEA  offer skin care packs for each skin type without suffering the repercussions of being away from your usual a.m. and p.m. products.
The best part about having a kit designed specifically for travel is that you won’t have to worry about some guard at the airport throwing away your precious moisturizer, cleanser, mask, or cream, or that your products won’t fit into your already bursting-at-the-seams luggage.
Even if it’s just an overnight getaway, you will most certainly need to take care of your skin.
See you at the spa!

Felicia’s Fabulous Finds – Absorb by Tu’el

Welcome guest blogger Kayla Felicia Gardener!

As a person who has long battled oily, acne-prone skin, oil control has been one of my biggest concerns in skin care. Whether its oil-free face primers, blotting sheets, setting powders, matte (powder and liquid) foundation, or even oil-controlling setting sprays, I have literally tried it all. But as you may imagine, the more I try to control oil, the more my body creates and overcompensates for it once the oil is finally gone with super dry flaky skin. So it’s a balancing act, to moisturize so that my skin healthy and glow-y, but also control the oil without over-drying.

This is where Linda at Star Brows came in with a great suggestion for me (as well as all those who suffer from oily skin) from Tu’el, called Absorb. This amazing facial serum, when applied before moisturizer and sunscreen, finally answers the call! Thanks to the amazing science of Sodium Hyaluronate, which is able to hold 1000 times its weight in water, the skin is kept moisturized without having to produce more oil! It also contains cinnamon extract, which helps clear any breakouts, and green tea extract, which reduces the appearance of redness.

Since I began using Absorb about two weeks ago, I have not once had to use a blotting sheet on my face, or even touch up with powder. Before, my makeup almost always seemed to slide right off my face by the end of the day, but thanks to Absorb I haven’t even had to think about it! This amazing serum works better than any facial primer I’ve ever used, beating out big department store brands, and that’s just one of its perks!

I use Absorb morning and night before my moisturizer (as I usually go to bed with a night cream but wake up super oily) and just let it soak in for a minute. It always leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and of course, oil free! So if you’re looking for a spa-like experience every day, with fewer touch-ups and no more oily shine, Absorb from Tu’el is a no-brainier!

Post-Wax Body Care Kit – August Product Feature 2011

Summer means showing more skin, and we want it smooth and hair-free, right?! But don’t go to the Spa and get a bikini or Brazilian wax unless you have a plan for after-care. Otherwise, you may end up miserable, with bumps and ingrown hairs – Ouch! Not pretty.

The Monthly Product Feature for August is the Post-Wax Body Care Kit which includes Tu’el Clear-It Blemish Control, Tu’el De-tox Bath Gel, and FREE Pumice Gloves. These products keep the skin exfoliated between waxing services, help prevent ingrown hair and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth.

If you’ve never had this service or would like a refresher course on how to get the best outcome, check out these two popular posts: Ladies: 10 Reasons Why Brazilian Waxing is Worth It and Post-Waxing Care for Brazilians and Bikinis.

Travel Packs by Tu’el

Travel Packs

This is the perfect travel companion, as well as a great way to try Tu’el.  It includes the A.M. (Gel or Milk Cleanser) and P.M. (Cleansing Oil and Herbalizer) cleansing systems as well our beloved

Hy-Drate in 1 oz. bottles.

Note: I refill these convenient travel sizes with my larger sized products to take to the gym.

Packaged for Dry, Combination, Oily, Impure and Dry-Reactive skin types as determined by your pore size (don’t count the nose!):

Vitamin Line
Dry Skin


This skin type is primarily characterized by small pores, is not product sensitive, lacks the ability to produce sebaceous oil and easily becomes dehydrated. It may have underlying congestion and may also be flaky. The Vitamin Family hydrates the skin, stimulates sebaceous oil production and seals in moisture. The moderately rich Vitamin Cream, Vitamin Essential Oil and the rich creamy Vitamin Hydrating Mask, adds needed nutrients to the skin, completing the cleansing system for treatments in the spa and for home care.

Azulene Line
Combination and Oily Skin


This skin type shows two different textures covering 1/3 to 1/2 of the face, and appears to have medium to large pores. It may be congested and dehydrated due to improper home care. It needs balancing of oil production without dehydration. The Azulene Family balances sebaceous oil production, hydrates and calms. For those with combination and oily skin and are also product-reactive, Azulene is a suitable ingredient for calming. Special ingredients in the Azulene Essential Oil and the Balancing Clay Mask complete the line.


Purifying Line
Impure Skin


Impure skin can be dry, combination or oily, and any age with visible and constant breakouts. Many times this skin is extremely dehydrated and irritated due to improper care or harsh ingredients. Home care and professional treatments along with diet counseling are an absolute necessity. The Purifying Family acts as a germicide to target impurities while keeping skin feeling and looking great. The Purifying Clay Mask and Purifying Essential Oil complete the line and are additional solutions to treat impure skin.

Chamomile Line
Dry-Reactive Skin


This skin has some of the same properties as dry skin – small pores, possibly congested, easily dehydrated and irritated and also reacts to products. This is the client that says, “Everything I use makes me breakout.” The Chamomile Line calms while gently improving, maintaining and enhancing the skin. The active ingredients in Chamomile Essential Oil and Chamomile Cream continue to calm and soothe.

Regenerative Line
Mature Skin


Mature skin is dry, combination, oily or dry-reactive that has aged. Tanned skin at any age is considered mature. Mature skin with impurities will use the Purifying Line. The Regenerative Line stimulates cell production, hydrates, nourishes and firms. To use this line, first analyze the skin, choose the appropriate cleansing line and then add Herbalizer from the Regenerative Line. Special nutrients from the Regeneration Cream, Regenerative Firming Mask, Regenerative Essential Oil and Glorious Gold™ Eye & Lip Gel are perfect additions to treat aging skin.

Glorious Gold Eye and Lip Gel

Tu’el’s Glorious Gold™ Eye & Lip Gel by Eva’s Esthetics

This is a light fragrance-free gel that diminishes dark circles, improves circulation, moisturizes, and reduces wrinkles around the eyes and lips. The Bearberry, Licorice and Blackberry are natural lighteners, so you can also spot-treat your age or sun spots.

Glorious Gold is formulated for aging skin, I suggest Eye Plus if you are under 30. 😉 Which ever product you choose, you NEED to use something special for the delicate skin around the eyes.
I suggest Hy-Drate first (maybe instead of “underwear” we should call this a “foundational garment”) lol, apply this as close to the eye as you feel comfortable, then Glorious Gold or Eye Plus Lotion.
What’s in it?
Purified Water, Glycerin, Arbutin, Wild Thyme Extract, Lupin Extract, Bearberry Extract, Blackberry Extract, Licorice Extract, Ginko Biloba Extract, Chamomile Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hyaluronic Acid, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate. 1oz. $80

Oil Free Essential Protection SPF 30

oil free spfDaily Protect Oil Free Essential Protection SPF 30

An oil-free, lightweight full spectrum sun block especially for oily or impure skin or for those in hot and/or humid climates.

SPF 30 can be worn all day, but is especially important when outside for prolonged periods, or near water.

Some of the ingredients include:

Chamomile Extract: Soothing, calming and  assists in healing.

Green Tea Extract: Powerful antioxidant, free radical scavenger and anti irritant.

Aloe Extract: Soothes and protects.

Sodium Hyaluronate: It is the cosmetic grade of Hyaluronic Acid. Extremely humectant, binds up to 1000 times it’s weight in water, supports collagen and elastin in the dermis where wrinkles form.

People are often confused about sunscreen formulations. Here is what is in this one:
  • Octyl Methoxycinnamate – UVB protection, waterproof, reduces the appearance of scars and is an organic compound.
  • Benzophenone 3 – It is an organic compound, broad spectrum protection photosynthesizing short wave UVA  and absorbs rays in the upper UVB, lower UVB range, where primary sundamage – i.e. burning, skin cancer and aging occur.
  • Octyl Salicylate – Adds emollient properties, is an organic compound and absorbs UVB.
  • Titanium Dioxide – Utra Violet physical block found naturally.
  • Avobenzone – Active, “broad spectrum” (this is an important key phrase, watch for it on labels) protection. It’s an organic sunscreen agent that has the ability to absorb ultraviolet light over a wide range of wavelengths.

*Price quoted for this product is valid up to one month after this post is published.
