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.

An Esthetician’s Posh Journey

Five years ago when I opened my skin care practice, I had an account with an internationally respected skin care brand. It was a good product line, with a variety of cleansers, exfoliants, masks and moisturizers for all skin types. It was effective and I got results when I used these products during spa treatments.

However, a couple of years into my business ownership adventure I started to get bored with the products I was using. They still worked really well, but the packaging and scents were clinical (AKA a snoozefest), they could be purchased at many locations around town, and the price point was just high enough that it was a deterrent to people wanting to take a chance on an impulse buy. I needed to find a new addition to my product toolbox.

Along came Perfectly Posh. A esthetician friend of mine had started selling it, and I was drawn in by the fun packaging, clever names and moderate price point. This was a line that spoke to me, and because Posh also makes a wide array of body treatment products, all of the voids in my practice could be filled by opening just this one account.

And so I did! Two-and-a-half years later, I still find Perfectly Posh’s line to be effective, budget-friendly, and so much fun to use and sell in my skin care practice. My clients love the products and are thrilled to be able to use them at home too. Thank you, Posh!

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.

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

Perfectly Posh for Estheticians

Several esthetician friends of mine have been asking “Should I join Posh?”

The short answer is “YES.”

Adding Perfectly Posh to my skin care practice has changed things up in a big way. I explain more in this video (please watch!), but to be quick about it I am enjoying my work, selling more retail, and developing much more beneficial and unique spa treatments now that Posh is in my toolbox. Posh is affordable, effective and so. much. fun.

If you’d like to chat about adding Perfectly Posh to YOUR esthetics practice, please ask me anything! I’d love to have you join our team. 

 

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 😉

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! 🥂
