Keep Friends Close, but BFF Closer

BFF

Good friends are hard to come by, just like good face washes.

You may not realize you’ve met your BFF (like, an actual friend-person) when you first meet them, but you’ll know right away they’re someone special – maybe someone weird, but a weird that makes you feel good and inspires you both to enjoy your collective weirdness together.

Well, BFF (the face wash) is not weird like your best friend, it’s just outright fantastic. It is the bonafide OG of Poshy face washes. It’s so good you’ll wash your face again IMMEDIATELY just to wash its fresh, pepperminty goodness over you.

Like a good friend, BFF has your back. BFF will invigorate you when you’re weary with peppermint and grapefruit oils, soothe (and moisturize – like that extra weird friend) your skin with aloe vera, and scrub away those flaky, dry patches you’ve kept around but no longer serve you. So don’t wait until you lose it (or it gets stolen in the locker room like mine did) to realize what you have – appreciate it now! Don’t take it for granted! Just don’t do it!

Just like good friends, good face washes are hard to replace. But unlike Drake, we like new friends, we’re okay with new friends, and Posh has other face wash-friends for us to hang out with while our BFF is off galavanting with some friend-thief.

Keep your friends close and your face wash closer, my friends.

Basic Facial Steps for a DIY Facial

Of course I reference Perfectly Posh products in this video, but you could use pretty much any complete skin care line for similar results.

https://youtu.be/zt_6Y8BAbFM

Watching the video above is the sexiest way to learn about these steps, but the express version consists of this:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Exfoliate
  3. Tone (if you want to, or after cleansing if you want to, or really anywhere that makes sense for you)
  4. Massage
  5. Extractions (only if you’re trained to do them safely!)
  6. Mask
  7. Treat
  8. Moisturize/SPF

Queen Routine

Today I want to talk about something very near and dear to my heart: Sleep.

Getting out of bed is hard, guys. It really is. Especially when you’ve been stretched to the ends of the earth for days or weeks on end, and your body is just, almost literally, dying for some relief. Some relaxation. A break. Exhibit A: Me last week.

Well, let me tell you something. This morning I awoke blissfully undisturbed by the muffled alarms beneath my pillow. I silenced each and every one (because I need help), stretched my arms wide and tall, and literally floated out of bed. Well, pretty literally. I felt rested, relaxed and just… at ease.

So, how is this possible? BECAUSE – I made time for myself to relax, unwind, and do NOTHING except care for myself last night before I went to sleep. Thus, I have emerged from my worn-out state as queen-ruler of my universe. I feel so good that I wanted to share my luxurious home self-treatment with you guys.

Without further adieu, here she is:

MY QUEEN ROUTINE
Time: 30-60 min

  1. Cue the music: I threw on “Evening Acoustic” on Spotify and let the voices of Iron & Wine and Joseph serenade me while I warmed up the shower.
  2. Rub a dub, baby: I took my time washing my hair, making sure to massage every bit of my scalp – sooo good, you guys. So good.
  3. Hop out, fill the tub up: While I filled the tub with hot water, my vibrant red Overtone conditioner sat & worked its magic on my hair (if you have colored hair, you NEED Overtone in your life – just sayin’. It has this wonderful peppermint smell that stimulates your scalp while depositing hues that extend the life of your hair color!).
  4. Add a cup or two of epsom salt: PP has some awesome epsom salt formulas (Muscle Through and Sleepy Sleep are my favorites!) I used Muscle Through this time because I feelin’ the rosemary – Sleepy Sleep is infused with lavender, which is just lovely and calming. I became one with my bath for about 20 minutes – but really, that’s just an estimate because I felt timeless in that tub.
  5. Wash up: After soaking, I washed up with my Milkin’ It chunk, and exfoliated my fresh and clean skin with my favorite Snarky, Fauxpology. I just adore its smell – So much so that I got the perfume crayon in its scent!!!
  6. Face time: My face needed a little loving, so I exfoliated with BFF, patted dry, and followed up with my go-to mask, Cackle Spackle. I love using these two together – my face felt SO smooth, and the little red patches around my nose really calmed down. I washed up, then did the thing with Moisturize 911.
  7. Finishing touches: I lathered up neck-to-toe with Hard Daze Night, which is a yummy, fragrant, hemp-scented body butter.
  8. Time to get comfy (comfy): This is the best part. Grab your PJs & get COMFY! Your restful, well-deserved night of sleep awaits. Your favorite body butter will soak into your skin throughout the night, so you’ll wake up with soft, supple skin all over.

And there you have it! Like magic, you’ll awaken rejuvenated with a brand new mission.

This little routine is for all you queens, kings and mystical beauties reading. I really went in, so feel free to modify time or steps to your liking!

It really feels like an at-home spa treatment, guys. If I had planned it a little better, I would have added a pedicure… next time 😉

Gotta have your Posh? Grab it here!

Oh the Heals! 

Cuts, bruises, redness, oh my!

Did you just get a pimple out of nowhere? What about that papercut from filing papers? Or if you’re like me and have a husband who works with dangerous equipment and comes home with some burns from time to time 😓 None of these things are fun, and getting rid of them fast seems too good to be true. 

That kind of thinking seems like a distant nightmare now, thanks to my Healer Skin Stick 😍 since discovering Perfectly Posh and these things that I like to call magic, (or as close to it as I can possibly explain) small blemishes, cuts, and bruises are nothing of concern anymore! This shea butter, beeswax, essential oil loaded skin stick of convenience helps to calm irritations in a matter of hours! 😱😱😱 

Skin Sticks have been a life changer for me and I couldn’t be more serious when I tell you that if you apply Healer to a pimple before you go to bed, the redness and swelling will be reduced the very next day. You can actually see my personal experience in the pictures below, I have a 3 month old kitten who doesn’t know how to use his claws properly yet, and you can see the damage he did on my arm 🤕 the first applocation was 2 or 3 days after the initial attack on me (LOL) the second picture is about 5-7 days, and the third one is from today! I haven’t experienced healing this fast before using Healer 😍

Skin Sticks Rule.

Sip, Sip, Hooray! 

Hi my name is Mariah and I like to drink as I get my face mask on 🤗 

One of my absolute favorite things to do for myself since I’ve starting using Perfectly Posh, are face masks! ❤ I discovered how beneficial they can be for my skin, like how the Cackle Spackle, with its charcoal and kaolin clay, draws impurities from my pores, or how Hot & Gold, with its colloidal gold, gives my skin that brighter appearance 😍 

These two are a only a couple of my favorite face masks, if not for their fun colors! I love the way I feel after doing my own facial, it just feels so clean washing my face then applying an “off” mask to get all that gunk out, then an “on” mask to replenish all those good oils back into my face! If you hadn’t tried a face masking yet, I totally recommend it, especially if you’re looking for a relaxing day in! Let’s face it, we females do quite a lot, we deserve a glass of wine with a bubble bath and face mask every now and then 😘

CHEERS! 🥂

Posh, Mon Pourquoi

My why.

Life started getting monotonous for me, then I discovered Perfectly Posh.

The love affair started with a simple lip scrub, hand creme, and eye lash serum; I was hooked! Now my collection has grown and is now a crazy addiction that I can’t keep away from! My skin is softer and so much more clear 😁 no more clogged pores or an oily face. I finally found a product that I could have fun using (that’s good for me!) and while doing so, earning an a little extra income, this brand I can feel good and confident about. 

In addition to the fabulous scents, great ingredients, and fun  packaging, have you ever worked with people you thought were out to get you?! It’s not very fun, right now I’m in a spot in my work where I don’t feel excited around my coworkers and I get put down, I go to work, do my job, go home, repeat, and I feel like work should be so much more than that! I’m trying to get back into the groove of things with my Posh business and get my name out to the public, so hopefully one day I can advance and work in an environment where I don’t feel like I’m walking on eggshells, and these ladies in Perfectly Posh want everyone to succeed and do whatever they can to help you do so, and that, my friends, is what a real team should be, helping one another advance and cheering each other on through their high points. What more in a job could you ask for? ❤

Perk Up, Buttercup!

Hello Loveies!

Today we are going to talk about one of my new FAVORITE Posh products: the Perk Skin Stick!

Why Perk? You can Perk at work, Perk on a train, Perk in/on/at *insert here* – you name it, the Perk Stick is ready for action.

Lately with the change in weather in Chicago, I have had some pressure headaches (you know, the ones that squeeze your face and head all over) and it really just bogs me down. If you’re like me, any sign of sickness is just game-over. It’s the worst. It also makes simple tasks like paying attention a real chore.

So, what do you do when your body’s fighting off something yucky? Perk! It has peppermint essential oils to boost your mood, refresh your senses, and give you that crisp, cool, cleansing feeling. One swipe each way around my nose and cheekbones clears my sinuses right up – perfect for those head colds and stuffy noses. I even use it on and around my nose when I’ve handled a few too many Kleenexes: It is loaded with shea butter and beeswax to lock in hydration, which keeps that sensitive skin soft and hydrated.

Have a headache? Apply a bit to your temples and forehead to cool you down. Neck ache? Mind your hair and rub some where the back of your head meets your neck.

As if the Perk didn’t do enough to help you out, it has a wee bit of caffeine in it, so if you’re missing your usual mid-afternoon pick-me-up, you can apply a bit of magic to your wrists and temples for a quick boost.

Did I mention you can use it on your lips as chapstick, too?! Amazing. At about 3.5 times the size of your typical chapstick tube, this versatile skin stick is in it for the long-haul.

Where I go, Perk goes. Go get yours here!
