Goji Berry (lycium barbarum) is a rich source of skin-protecting antioxidants - contains more vitamin C than oranges and more beta-carotene than carrots!
Over 3000 years ago, the father of Chinese medicine, Shen Nong, praised the humble goji berry for it's miraculous properties. Today this delicious fruit has the highest antioxidant count of all the superfruits!
You can find goji berries in your local health food store ... and also featured in my contour treatment mask! Eat them & wear them!
I thought I had seen it all!
I am a "professional" Google researcher, and I'm frequently googling other skin care lines just to see what's out there - since I know you are, too! Mind you, I've sold one form of product line or another since I was a wee teenager - I think even before I was of driving age, so like around 13 or so. I've either used, sold, or known everything from the Mary Kay's and NuSkin crowd, to the department store brands, to what was referred to as "Professional's Only" back in the 1990's when we actually had a profession - a time before the internet came along and watered down and destroyed everything we had worked so hard to build. (But isn't that for another blog post?) As I was "googling" the other day I came across yet ANOTHER skin care line who's claims just stopped me in my tracks!
On their beautiful website, next to the lady who looks very excited to be free of whatever ailment this product has "cured", they claim: "The secret to our dramatic results lies in this holographic energy conductor"!!!
They put a metallic silver graphic on their plastic bottle and THAT'S the reason why the product works so miraculously - not the INGREDIENTS???
I then went on to read what the actual working ingredients were and found that not only was this product "vegan and gluten free", but it was also free of NEGATIVITY!!!
I thought green-washing had hit it's limit by now, but I see I was wrong.
The marketing ploys continue.
P.S. - I don't know if there is any "negativity" in my products or not, I only know that they WORK because of the SCIENCE of skin biology & INGREDIENTS that create RESULTS!
Can I get an "OH-BOY" for that one!

The one I’ve chosen is a local charity that helps spay and neuter feral cats!
SOS :: Spay Our Strays
And for anyone who wants some Good Karma points, SOS needs helping hands! They need man (or woman) power to help place cages and then nurture for one night after spay or neuter surgery.
