FALL in Love


The subtle changes of crisper air, sporting boots rather than flip flops, and less time spent in the sunlight…all these things point that FALL has arrived! This time of the year is a little bitter sweet for me, I love sunshine! But it’s nice to give my skin a break and enjoy the benefits of bronzer. There are so many AMAZING items that have/will be hitting the shelves of Riversong Spa…these are items you won’t want to miss out on!

First up Glo Minerals Lip Crayons!!! I love this product because of it’s intense long lasting colour! Most of the colours shown are bold statement colours, but can be toned down simply by adding a sheer gloss. 

Lip Crayon in Bombshell topped with peach gloss

Finish off and refresh your look with Jane Iredales Smell the Roses Hydrating Spray. I love this product not only because it smells wonderful, but also because it benefits and hydrates your skin with each application. This limited edition product is one you most definitely will not want to miss out on. 

Another fantastic element to add to Fall is an intense eye! Glo Minerals just put out a great variety of Fall eye shadows that can be taken from a light every day eye to intense sultry eye. I’m lusting over the potential of these long lasting color options!! To get the most versatility, purchase all four! 

One of the most important items to consider is skin care by Eminence, since using all Eminence my skin has changed drastically! Recently they released Exfoliating Peels; with four options best suited for your skin type. See amazing results in the vibrance and resurfacing of your skin in two weeks. Trust me when I say…this is a game changer for your face!!

Don’t forget the “Tools to the Trade..” How you apply your products is just as important as what your product is. Proper tools can polish your application, leaving the product more blended and even. Both Jane Iredale and Glo Minerals have amazing brushes for a flawless application, especially when it comes to foundation and concealer. 

Set the ambience of your environment  with Root Legacy Candles. With a wide selection of amazing and unique scents, these candles set the tone for any occasion. Really there a nice addition to every room to add “smell goods” and relaxation to the air.

The Fountain of Truth


Want the secret to longer lasting youthful looking skin?

The beautiful Sophia Loren who gracefully aged

The answer is simpler than you think, it breaks down to  2-factors: How hard you live (lifestyle), and What you put in your body. This all sounds very cliché, however, when I was taking a Theatrical Make-up Class in college we really focused on the aging process. Basically the 2-factors listed above can affect how you age and how it will ultimately affect your skin. Sun-lovers,stress, alcohol, smoking, sleep, and genetics all play a big part in the breakdown of your skin. Here are some tips and tricks to aid in slowing down the aging process and possibly even reversing some of the damage


I cannot stress enough the major role water plays in the appearance of your skin. It not only hydrates and provides necessary nutrients, but is also acts as a plumping and glow agent to your skin. We all loathe cellulite…water also helps diminish the appearance of dimpling. Aim for at least 1oz per pound. So for example if you weigh 150lbs, aim to drink 150oz. This can be a challenging task, a great way to start is by purchasing a water bottle that holds 48oz or more, and partially freezing it so it stays cold. Add lemon, lime, mint, or cucumber for a little zest. This will ease the hassle of ensuring your getting in your daily need.



We all get tired and lazy, but washing your face 2-3x a day (depending on your PH balance & lifestyle) is crucial to removing sweat and make-up which can clog pores. Washing your face should be like brushing your teeth..a must! On a daily basis upon waking, after working out, before bed these are times which are most definitely necessary. There are so many cleansers on the market, perhaps you don’t know which one is right for you.

The protective antioxidants in our Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser will energize your skin’s look and feel. The secret ingredient is our exclusive Youth Shield Antioxidant Complex, which hydrates and invigorates skin to give it that look of elasticity. Tea tree oil helps prevent the look of breakouts and finely ground olive seed gently exfoliates for revitalized and fresher looking skin.

For those with even the most sensitive skin, our Stone Crop Gel Wash washes away impurities without drying out the skin. The oil-free extracts help even skin tone and minimize the appearance of blemishes to leave a healthy complexion.


Brighten the appearance of skin and reduce the signs of aging with the help of our Bright Skin Cleanser. For normal to dry skin types, this cleanser uses two actives – Gigawhite and a Natural Hydroquinone Alternative – to give skin the appearance of being brighter and younger looking.


At a younger age I would just wash my face, it wasn’t until I started repping for a cosmetic company that I fully understood how import it is to use toner and moisturize daily. Toner removes all the dirt, oil, and grime that your face wash didn’t get.  Followed by properly moisturzing. Why is a moisturizer so important? Using moisturizer has proven benefits for the skin over the long haul. Hydration is what allows skin to function at peak performance. Skin cells in this condition can rapidly repair themselves and turnover fresh cells, which means huge anti-aging benefits down the road. In this study from the British Journal of Dermatology, those who used moisturizer were found to develop wrinkles at a fraction of the rate of those with dry skin (birchbox).  There are so many varieties on the market. Sometimes because our skin changes throughout seasons, aging, exposure, etc..trial of different kinds can be beneficial to finding out what works the best for your skin.

Glo minerals has a wide variety of toners for every skin type



30minutes of donating a little sweat to the fitness gods can pay off more than one way. Sure, most of exercise to stay fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle, but getting the blood pumping can seriously benefit your complexion. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. “Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin,” says Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman’s Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. So go ahead and don’t be afraid to sweat a little.

The colors and names alone will grab your attention! Eminence has a wide abudance of AMAZING moisturizes. My personal fav is the Rose Hips Whip Moisturizer



There’s nothing I love better than a good detoxifying mask! Once a week after a workout I, when my pores are open, I’ll wash my face with warm water and cleanser than apply Eminence’s Balancing Masque Duo. The best thing about this mask is, I can actually feel it working. It has two sides: Charcoal T-Zone Purifier and Eminence Pomelo Cheek Treatment. This masque duo was formulated to mattify the oily t-zone while drawing out deep down impurities and leaving skin refreshed, clear and hydrated.

Eminence Balancing Duo Masque leaves your skin glowing, feeling bright and clean!


Get regular facials! Not only will it relax you, but also good to “rebalance” your skin one to two times a month. Discuss your aging conerns with both your Esthetician and your Dermatologist, they can guide in the right direction to minimize your aging ales.

Get your Zzzz’s! Those who are well rested are less stressed, more energetic, and more positive, playing a huge part on dark circles,and fine lines and wrinkles.

Relax! Aging is a part of life, but you can do it gracefully or you can panic!!! Gracefully is a lot more serene.
