For beauty buffs on a budget, drugstore products are the holy grail. Though luxury products are known for high-quality ingredients, drug store formulations can be just as effective, especially if they have gone through clinical trials and testing.
Since wandering up and down the aisle at the pharmacy can be tedious, I’ve highlighted a few BRAND NEW affordable drugstore beauty buys with unique ingredients ( crystal drops and gold) below. Manuka Doctor’s Drops of Crystal line just launched in January. I love it!
Beautifying Bi-Phase Oil: This nourishing, yet easily absorbed facial oil contains a botanically derived lightening blend. Purified Bee Venom (PBVTM) and Manuka honey help promote skin’s elasticity and restore skin’s natural radiance, while precious oil extracted from crystal drops collected from the Pistacia Lentiscus tree help plump and firm skin. Skin is left looking brighter and luminous. ($39.99)
Cashmere Touch Cream : A silky soft age-defying formula that melts into skin and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles with a fusion of sublime oils, the highest performing ingredients from the hive, and plant stem cell technologies. Skin is left feeling supple, luxuriously nourished, and divinely restored. ($39.99)
Cashmere Touch Serum: This unique age-defying facial serum contains botanically derived instant firming actives which help to plump and smooth skin’s surface so fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced. Precious oil extracted from crystal drops collected from the Pistacia Lentiscus tree have been combined with powerful ingredients from the hive, Purified Bee Venom (PBVTM) and Manuka honey, to help boost skin’s elasticity for a rejuvenated complexion. Skin appears lifted and radiance is restored. ($39.99)
Gold Dust Firming Serum: A powerful combination of ingredients from the hive, infused with plant extracts and colloidal gold. Together they work to help diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as regulate discoloration. Skin is left looking revitalized, illuminated, and younger-looking. ($34.99)
I have been using these products for about three weeks now, and my skin looks and feels fabulous! You would never know that the Manuka Doctor Drops of Crystal line is not one of those hugely expensive brands that you can only buy in boutiques!

When I drink bottled water, I like it to taste fresh and crisp, not like the plastic bottle it comes in. Out of all of the bottled water brands I have tried, 1907Water is definitely my favorite. It tastes clean, smooth and completely refreshing. Another thing to think about is, do we really know where our bottled water is coming from?
1907Water is sourced 680 feet deep at the foot of New Zealand’s Kaimanawa Ranges, resulting in pure, uncontaminated water. The lower mineral content of 1907Water naturally alkalized water ensures a smooth finish.
Last year the New Zealand water company 1907Water is launched its line of naturally sourced alkaline water to the US market. Now in 2016, 1907Water is available in retailers nationwide and they recently launched a new 10 L Bag in Box water with with easy to pour spout.
The new 1907Water’s 10 L Bag in Box water is made of 100% recycled BPA-free PET and are 100% recyclable. This box of water is great product to store in the fridge or pantry, take camping, on boats, picnics etc. 1907Wate is also available in 3 attractive sizes (MSRP 2 Liter $3.99, 1 liter $2.19, 500ml: $1.29).
When I drink 1907Water, I am never worried about where it comes from. I am thankful to know that it comes from completely natural resources and not just recycled sewage water. I Just one sip and I know the difference!

Looking your best and keeping up with the latest and greatest beauty routines unfortunately can be harmful to your health and even to your appearance. Here's why it is important to take a break from...
With the heavy weight of faux hairs in addition to sticky adhesives holding semi-permanent lashes for a full month, it's important to let your natural lashes breathe and show them some TLC. Skip a month and apply a lash strengthening serum like Hydropeptide LASH ($96) which improves the appearance of lashes by strengthening them for a fuller, longer, less brittle appearance.
Having hair extensions can pull on natural hair follicles leading to thinning and breakage. Take two capsules of NeoCell's Keratin Hair Volumizer ($20) daily to provide your hair with all-natural beauty nutrients it needs. It is clinically proven to enhance hair strength and give you the thick and lustrous locks you are craving.
My hair gets fuller, thicker and longer when I take this supplement. It seems so much healthier and has less breakage.
Getting your latest gel manicure removed can damage and weaken nails. Take a break from gel manicures every couple of weeks and add biotin to your daily routine. NeoCell's Biotin Bursts ($15) deliver 10,000 MCG of biotin in a yummy soft chew to promote nail growth, and maintain healthy skin and strong hair! Keep a bag of these on your desk or in your car to ensure you get your daily dose of beauty each day.
I love Biotin Bursts! They taste just like delicious tangy, fuity candy, so I have no problem taking them every day. When I take them on a daily basis, my nails grow so fast that I find that I need to stash nail clippers in my purse to keep up with them.
Wearing makeup can lead to clogged pores, redness, and uneven texture. Apply a masque like Arbonne's RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Masque ($65) twice a week before bed. This masque gently exfoliates to visibly improve the appearance of skin tone and texture, minimize the size of pores and provide you with a radiant glow from within.
Arbonne's RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Masque is the greatest! I use it twice each week, and it literally leaves my skin glowing and as soft as silk.
Going overboard with unsafe teeth whitening products can be extremely harmful. Instead, opt for Supersmile's Professional Whitening Toothpaste ($21) that will gently lifts stains and rebuild enamel that may have been already damaged.
I love Supersmile's Professional Whitening Toothpaste! I have been using it for only about a week now, and my teeth are already looking so much whiter!

Scarology™ Offers a Three-Step Topical Approach to Scar Healing:
Changes in Scar Appearance After Just Three Days
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound results in some degree of scarring. Skin is a seamless organ, like a fine cloth protecting valuable assets. Imagine a piece of silk. Just one small tear can make a big difference in how it looks. And it's the same with skin. Any burn, injury, or other trauma, such as surgery, can cause a scar.
Dr. Michael Connor and Dr. Jeanmarie Connor are a husband and wife team with twenty years of medical expertise specializing in plastic and reconstructive surgery and pediatrics. Together they have created Scarology.™ This new product is a safe and effective three-step at home scar treatment. Exfoliation procedures such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing have been shown to be effective in improving the appearance of a scar but can cost thousands of dollars and can be associated with significant down time.
Scarology can be used on both adults and children to help fade a plethora of scars:
- acne scars
- facial scars
- burn scars
- wound scars
- stretch marks
- C section scars
The proprietary scar treatment system combines ingredients that have, until now, only been available in medical settings. These key ingredients have been shown to nourish the healing scar with hydration, and reduce inflammation in the scar tissue.
Scarology’s unique 3-part system can be used on any skin type and on any scar once the skin has completely healed from the initial injury. The regimen is designed to target different phases of scarring. The kit includes a gentle exfoliator, simple scar cream and self-adhesive silicone sheets to be worn at night during sleep. Changes in scar appearance have been reported as early as 3 days following initial application.
Products & Use:
Step One: Natural Fruit Acid Exfoliator: In the morning, spread a thin layer of Natural Fruit Acid Exfoliator over the healed scar and onto dry, residue-free skin. Massage into scar for 1-3 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Slow, controlled exfoliation allows removal of the unhealthy skin cells overlying the scar and stimulates the healthy surrounding tissue to replicate and replace the top layer of skin.
Step Two: Ultimate Scar Cream: Apply the Ultimate Scar Cream twice daily. Following Step 1, massage cream onto scar and leave on skin throughout the day. In the evening, apply Ultimate Scar Cream again. Scarology’s™ innovative scar cream formula contains ingredients that have been shown to reduce inflammation and hydrate all layers of the wound.
Step Three: Silicone Scar Sheet: At night, apply the self-adhesive Silicone Scar Sheet to skin. Remove sheet in the morning and store sheet with protective liner for repeated uses. The third component of the system is designed to help provide compression and nourishment to the scar throughout the night. Scarology’s ™ self adhesive silicone sheet uses advanced patented silicone technology currently used in hospitals.
For best results, it is recommended that Scarology’s™ 3-step Ultimate Scar System is used for a minimum of 3 months with continued use for as long as the scar shows signs of improvement. Older scars may require 6-12 months of continuous therapy.
Does Scarology™ Work on Old Scars?
Scars from several years ago are the most difficult to treat and most likely will not change in appearance with topical silicone or onion extract alone. However, Scarology’s™ 3 part system is different. Scarology is the only commercially available product for scars that may enhance the appearance of old scars.
Can Scarology™ be Used on Pigmented Skin?
Scarology can be used on all skin types. Children with scars can benefit as well. Scarology does not recommend using the fruit exfoliator, Step 1, in children under 2 years of age.
The three phases of wound healing
Phase 1: Initiation
This first phase begins immediately after the injury and is completed within a few hours. During this phase, there is the formation of a blood clot. In addition, proteins in the body, called fibrin, create a matrix for reparative cells to enter the site and start the healing process.
Phase 2: Inflammatory
This phase begins soon after and new cells start to grow in order to cover the wound surface. Granulation tissue (early scar tissue) begins to form and new blood vessels start to sprout in order to nourish the reparative cells. A collagen matrix replaces the fibrin matrix and inflammatory cells enter along the wound’s new scaffold. Altering the inflammatory cells during this phase can dramatically improve the appearance of a scar.
Phase 3: Remodeling
This is the last phase of wound healing. A strong type of collagen slowly replaces the blood vessels and reparative cells. Specific cells, called myofibroblasts, remain in this collagen matrix and contract, which ultimately leads to a decrease in the size of the scar. Reparative cells continue to enter and survey the scar for months and even years after the injury, which is why scars tend to look better at 1 year than at 1 month. The wound environment changes dramatically during the course of healing and the formation and appearance of a scar is directly related to the events described above.
Scarology™ Ultimate Scar Treatment System for Average Size Scars: $89.00
Scarology™ Ultimate Scar Treatment System for C-Sections & Large Scars: $119.00
Scarology™ Ultimate Scar Treatment Cream: $60.00
Scarology™ Natural Fruit Acid Skin Exfoliator: $45.00
The History of Scarology ™
Scarology ™ was created in Palm Beach, Florida, by two physicians -- a husband and wife team: Dr. Michael Connor and Dr. Jeanmarie Connor. They have a combined twenty years of medical expertise specializing in plastic and reconstructive surgery in the face and neck as well as pediatrics.
For years, patients asked them for a safe and effective at home scar treatment that could be used on both adults and children that helps fade acne scars, facial scars, burn scars, keloids, wound scars, stretch marks and more. Unfortunately neither could make a recommendation.
As physicians they knew that they needed to have more informed answers for their patients. Over the course of the next few months they extensively researched available scar creams on the market along with consuming as much data on scar treatment published in medical journals. They were surprised to find that no single scar cream examined made a significant difference at 1 year.
Seeing the emotional & physical impact scarring had on their patients, they knew there had to be a better way. They initially developed a simple scar cream formula and would recommend patients purchase self-adhesive silicone sheets along with a gentle exfoliator to improve the final appearance of a scar. All of the patients who followed this regimen were satisfied with the final appearance of their scar, without exception.
As they witnessed that the final appearance of a scar can be greatly improved with daily use of these 3 simple steps, they decided to make the system available to the world. So in 2014 the 3 step kit and Scarology™ was born.
