The Homebody's Cleansing OIls Review

I told you the reviews were coming and here is the first! I was fortunate enough to receive three sample size cleansing oils from The Homebody on Etsy.  I received a sample of her Aloe Cleansing Oil, Whitesky Shea Cleansing Oil, and Emu Facial Cleansing Oil.  I have been wanting to try the oil cleansing method for awhile now, but I have to admit that I was a total skeptic.  I have pretty severe combination skin (my forehead is greasy and my cheeks are dry and flaky) and although I thought that it would be nice for my cheeks, I was just sure that my forehead was going to have a major breakout.

So what happened?  The first time that I used it I was absolutely amazed at how my skin felt.  I didn't experience any greasiness on my face at all!  As a matter of fact, my skin felt soft and smooth and had a beautiful radiant glow (not an oily glow, just a youthful aura.)  Usually my skin feels very dry and taut after cleansing, sometimes even itchy when I get done cleaning it.  I even have prescription cleanser and moisturizer  for when my skin gets really bad.  You just can't believe how shocked I was when my skin actually felt good! As great as it all may seem, I was still skeptical that after a few days of use I was going to be a real-estate agent for "Break-Out City," which I new was going to form on my forehead.

A week goes by and guess what?  I have fewer blemishes than usual, the constant redness in my cheeks is improving, and my skin has never felt better or looked more radiant!  I am a true convert and will never go back to traditional soaps again!  Out of the three my personal favorite is the Aloe Cleansing Oil.  For one thing it smells absolutely divine, and it really calms down any irritation that I have on my sensitive face.  That is my personal experience but trust me, they are all good.  I suggest you try out her sampler pack so you can see for yourself which one works best for your skin type.  At only $4.00 for 3 0.5 oz bottles it is very affordable and the samples last a surprisingly long amount of time.

This product is sure to enhance your mineral makeup experience.  It quickly and easily removes all makeup with absolutely no irritation.  In combination with the healing properties of minerals your skin will look and feel better than it has in years!  For maximum benefit try using The Homebody's cleanising oil in combination with Providence and Grace Radiance Powders for maximum healing and rejuvenation of your skin!

New products in the works!

Now that everything has settled down from the holiday rush I'm back in my "lab" mixing up some new products for everyone to enjoy. I'm really interested in duochromes right now, so far I've come up with a gorgeous orange with green duochromes. It's one of those colors that you look at and say "OK, cool color - wait a minute! Did I see a flash of green there?" I think you guys will love it! I've also come up with a really neat green with blue duochrome. It reminds me of looking out on the ocean water, one minute it's blue and the next it's green, you can't really decide what color it is! This is definitely another on my "keepers" list. Although it's not a duochrome I also came up with a gorgeous fuschia pink color - nice and bright with complexity and depth, you're gonna love it!

Also in the works:

I'm working on a great new eyeshadow base to be used as an alternative to my eyeshadow primer. It gives a nice smooth base to apply your eyeshadows to and adds an amazing punch to your colors. I gave it the ultimate test last night, I slept in it and there wasn't any eyeshadow on my pillowcase, next to no creasing, and the colors were still bright and vibrant when I woke up this morning! If it can do that, it can do anything!

I have some new pencil colors coming out soon, Bronze, Antiqued Coper, Deep Navy Blue, Enchanted Forest green, Deep Brown, and Charcoal.

I'm doing a total revamp of my products and shop. It's slow and tedious but trust me, it's coming! Any suggestions (products, page layout, etc...) are always welcome, just leave me a comment. I will be holding a photo contest soon. I would like single color close-ups of my eyeshadows and lipsticks, and "create the look" close ups of your best combinations using Providence and Grace Cosmetics. By entering pictures you agree to allow Providence and Grace to edit the photos and to use the pictures at their discretion. Winners will receive store credit! Be sure and tell your friends so they can get some free products too!
