Snow Bunny Beauty

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

From day one my Adventuress Skin Care Collection was designed with an active lifestyle in mind. After four years interviewing labs all over the country to help me formulate this exciting product line I met Masoomeh, a world-traveling biochemist with more than 20 years experience developing technologies for brands like L’Oreal, Estee Lauder and Procter & Gamble to name a few.

With Masoomeh’s connections and knowledge of raw materials together we created this naturally derived collection with vital ingredients designed for varying degrees of skin sensitivities and allergies. With Adventuress you get an arsenal of products to protect and nourish,including moisturizer, sunscreen, skin purifier, face cleanser and EnviroBalm™.

And since your active lifestyle doesn’t allow for a lot of extra baggage, it was all specifically created with “on-the-go” in mind. So whether your adventures lead you to the slopes, beach, on the trail or out on the highways, I have two words for you…Go There!

Poetry In Your Tub!

Monday, August 13th, 2012

A rubber ducky is fun if you’re Ernie or Bert,

But your bath needs more when you’re stressing or hurt.

Bubbles can help if your bath is a bore,

But doesn’t help much if your muscles are sore.

A loofah is nice if you want to scrub a dub a dub dub,

But won’t relax you much — like (seed) will in your tub.

With (seed) body oil blends, baths help mind, body and more,

All natural soothing, from outside to core.

Seed Body Oil in Therapeutic and Relaxing Blend, $12 Each

Deeply moisturizing. Soothes and relaxes. 100% Natural. Enjoy healthy, silky smooth skin, with stress-relieving aromatherapy, through a generous blend of seed-based ingredients containing abundant antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Our fast absorbing, indulgent body oil will nourish your skin and soothe your mind. Experience the benefits of seedology®.

Carmelite Monks Launch Easeamine Skin Care With Patented Adenosine Technology

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Brother Dennis Wyrzykowski, founder and chairman of Carmel Laboratories Inc., launched the Easeamine® Skin Care Collection, featuring the exclusive Hydroxyzome™ transdermal delivery system of patented Adenosine Skin Technology™. Targeting women 35 to 65-plus, the anti-aging skin care line has five complementary products, including day, night and eye crèmes, a cleanser and a toner. Retail prices range from $26 to $138.

Easeamine Skincare Collection

Cornerstones of the collection are the Easeamine Day Crème (1 oz., $76) and Easeamine Night Crème (1.7 oz., $138), which deliver adenosine, hydrators and moisturizers, and are enriched with antioxidants Vitamins A, C and E. Easeamine Eye Crème (.5 oz., $98) delivers adenosine and antioxidants to reduce puffiness, diminish the appearance of dark circles, reduce crow’s feet, and give the sensation of tighter skin. It is used twice daily, under the Day and Night Crème. Rounding out the collection are Easeamine Cleanser (3.3 fl. oz., $26) and Easeamine Revitalizing Toner (3.3 fl. oz., $29), each with adenosine, aloe leaf juice, and honeysuckle, marshmallow and grapefruit extracts.

Developed and patented by renowned scientist James G. Dobson Jr., PhD. while conducting cardiovascular research at University of Massachusetts Medical School, Adenosine Skin Technology has been clinically proven to have a marked effect on skin repair. The technology delivers adenosine – a naturally occurring, anti-inflammatory biochemical compound – to the dermis, where it increases the production of the dermal fibroblast proteins collagen and elastin; increases blood flow to the outer layers of the skin; and increases cell size, giving skin a fuller, smoother appearance. In clinical trials, Easeamine showed improvements of as much as 48% in skin firmness, softness and elasticity, as well as improvement of fine lines and wrinkles.*

University of Massachusetts Medical School licenses Adenosine Skin Technology exclusively to Carmel Labs, providing for its charitable work benefiting the underprivileged through educational and outreach programs.

“This next generation of Easeamine products has unique formulations, is easy to use, and is extremely effective. We at the monastery call it ‘divine intervention for your skin,” related Wyrzykowski. “And while radically transforming your skin, you are also providing opportunities to transform the lives of the less fortunate in a positive way.”

The products have been completely reformulated from early versions by chemist Renato “Rene” Jose – who has developed products for the likes of Helena Rubenstein, Parlux, Calvin Klein, Elizabeth Arden and Liz Claiborne – with the exclusive Hydroxyzome transdermal delivery system and additional beneficial ingredients. The new, five-SKU line features luxe, ruby-red packaging emblazoned with the shield of the Teresian Carmelites.

Easeamine products are free of parabens, preservatives, mineral oils, artificial fragrances, artificial colors and artificial dyes.

The Easeamine Skin Care Collection is available online at

Skincare Tips to Go: Expert Advice on Caring for Your Skin While Traveling from Margot Grant Witz

7 Simple Skincare Tips for Traveling

Spring fever is in the air, and the desire to leave the cold winter for a tropical beach has never been stronger! Yet before you depart, be sure to remember these 7 simple skincare tips from Elizabeth Grant’s Beauty Director Margot Grant Witz:

1) Know the liquid rules! Nothing is worse than not being able to travel with your fave products. Make sure all your products are 100ml’s or less. Also, no sharp objects allowed, so make sure you are well groomed before embarking on your journey.

2) Make sure you travel with your basic routine: this should include a cleanser, moisturizer (ideally with SPF) lip balm, serum and hand cream. Don’t be afraid to use them often in flight. Why? Air travel can dry skin out pretty quickly – you don’t want to look worn out before landing. Bringing your favorite products with you on your flight allows for easy application before departing the plane.

3) Consider your destination when choosing your skin care essentials. Going somewhere hot and sunny – make sure SPF is in your bag, after sun care, and light – if any – moisturizer. Traveling somewhere cold and balmy – bring heavy-duty body lotions and a heavier facial moisturizer.

4) You want your skin to be able to breathe (this includes your eyelashes) – board the plane with clean and hydrated skin. Use a tinted moisturizer as opposed to pore-clogging foundations, and if you have oily skin, bring blotters to help soak up the oil during flight (this will also allow your skin to breathe with ease).

5) For long trips, bring eye drops to hydrate and soothe your eyes. When you land, put some crushed ice cubes under your eyes to reduce puffiness that result from changes in air pressure in the cabin.

6) Are you a fan of taking ‘cat’ naps during the flight? Before you doze off, apply an eye moisturizer and eye mask – both of these not only help you rest, but will give you a look that is fresh and relaxed when you wake up.

7) Remember to keep your hands off your face to help minimize breakouts. Although this seems simple enough, no one really pays attention in flight about how often ones’ hands find their way to the face. There is A LOT of bacteria 10, 000 feet up in the air: so many people forget about the simple things, such as the importance of WASHING ONES HANDS before applying skin care or make-up.

Safe travels!
