Old School Lip 👄 Beauty!

There’s a beautiful product that you may not know about. It is an old school apothecary beauty product invented and created in 1895. I have enjoyed it for years! I use it in my makeup kit for makeup assignments. I also even carry it on my beauty shelves in my studio.

Love 💕 love 💕 love!

It is called Rosebud 🌹 Salve. Make-up Artists, esthetician’s, fashion magazines and Celebrities consider it their number one #1. lip balm. It is also a popular staple in hairstylists kit and makeup artists kits. As it not only conditions the lips it is great for hair flyaways.

It comes in a simple round tin. No fancy packaging, It is quite the multi-tasker!

It is also a mommy and family favorite used to aid on the relief of dry skin, diaper rash and the company says for detergent burns. Nail techs love to use it on cuticles and dry knuckles,and elbows as well.

Another version is Rosebud Mentholated balm with skin loving ingredients formulated by G.F.Smith’s grandson Allen R.Smith Jr.. it helps with not only the skin but bug bites, allergies, sore red itchy noses from the cold and other minor skin ailments.

Even the great granddaughter got involved and formulated and designed the newer lip product Smiths 🍓 Strawberry lip balm. Smells like Strawberry Shortcake!

All of the above lip formulas are very emollient!

If you ❤️ love all things beauty and fashion like I do… You gotta try this wonderful lip balm.

Oh by the way, if you’re a fan of mini tube like packaging you’ll love their new small but mighty squeeze tubes.

But my favorite is Rosebud Salve in the tin!

A Berry Beautiful … Multi–tasking Face Mask

My skin is hot and cold and slightly dehydrated . From New York to Florida to back to NY and now in Chicago Illinois.

It’s still not spring in Chicago! It snowed here on Friday. So, multi-masking is always a good idea.

What I whipped up for my skin:

2 tablespoons of Greek plain yogurt

1/2 cup of fresh blackberries or you can use frozen mixed berries

2 tablespoons of local honey 🍯

Next blend the above ingredients in a bowl and pour into a blender.

*Or use a frother (you know like you use to make coffee, chai tea or cream foam)

Apply this DIY kitchen mask on a clean freshly washed face and also apply it to your neck and decolette.

Leave mask on at least 10mins.

Rinse well. Apply your favorite moisturizer.

This mask is rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins! The fresh yogurt kisses dead skin “Goodbye” and the honey makes your skin baby soft.

You’ll want to eat this yummy mask. You can but don’t.

My husband wanted this mask too so I made a bit more. By adding more blackberries.

Then I applied 👁 a gel eye mask to our eyes and we listened to music and enjoyed how wonderful our skin felt and eye area refreshed.

A delicious anti/aging mask!
