Intensive Eyelash Tint www.intensivelashandbrow.com
This lash tint was recommended to me about 7 years ago by a fellow esthetician who has been using it for years. This long lasting eyelash dye is formulated specifically for the eye area with natural ingredients. It produces consistent and beautiful results. I love love love this product. I could not live without it (and neither could my clients)!
Filthy Farm Girl Soaps, Lip Balms & Body Lotion www.filthyfarmgirl.com
I discovered Filthy Farm Girl years ago at a lovely little farmers market in Hilo, Hawaii. My girlfriends and I instantly fell in love with their packaging & amazing smelling soaps. These soaps are 100% natural and vegan friendly. There are no detergents, surfactants, sulfates, artificial scents, colorizers, or petroleum products of any kind in their products. I believe they are infused with the Aloha of the magical islands of Hawaii. And let's face it, we could all use way more Aloha in our life.
