What You Give When You Give AVEDA

“Each gift makes a difference in the world we live in, through cruelty-free,plant based products, wrapped in handmade paper from Nepal”-AVEDA

Some of our limited edition gifts this year really do give back, but it’s just not our limited edition items. Fandango Salon is an AVEDA concept salon because it believes in supporting a socially conscious brand. So, what does that mean?

Every time you buy an AVEDA product, whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, you can rest assured that the product is:

CRUELTY FREE: Body, hair, and skin care tested on people,not animals

NATURALLY DERIVED: Ingredients from plants, non-petroleum minerals or water

CERTIFIED ORGANIC: 90% of the essential oils in the aromas are certified organic.

WIND ENERGY: Manufactured in the USA

RECYCLED BOTTLES & TUBES: Made from 100% post consumer recycled materials


DID YOU KNOW: “Every AVEDA gift set not only brings joy to its recipient, it helps shape the future of mothers, daughters, families and wildlife in Nepal. In the spring of 2015, massive earthquakes shook Nepal, and millions lost their homes and livelihoods. Many emigrated away. 4,900* resilient papermakers have stayed, and our commitment to our partnership remains while they build their lives and community”-AVEDA

Back to School Skincare

In a perfect world, we cleanse, tone, treat, moisturize, and put on our eye cream every night and in the morning we exfoliate, cleanse, tone, treat, moisturize, and put our sunscreen on every morning. However,¬†school is back in session and many of us will eventually hit a point when we are too tired and too sleepy to keep up with these routines, and that’s ok! So this post goes out to our awesome teachers, students, parents, and anyone really short on time. We have our night owls who stay up late studying, preparing for the next day, catching up on the day, etc and we also have our early birds who prefer to get things done in the morning. Either way, the following multi benefit products will cut down on the time you spend cleansing your face while repairing, protecting, energizing, and brightening because time is of the essence with hectic school schedules!

This night time combo takes 3-5 minutes max to complete. Our first secret weapon is going to be a sleeping masque that goes to work on our skin while we sleep. Now we can literally get some beauty sleep. We will wake up with brighter moisturized skin that has been repairing overnight. Don’t worry, the sleeping masque seeps into the skin so there won’t be product left on the pillow while we sleep. To combat the look of tired dehydrated eyes, our secret weapon is going to be our nighttime eye creme that’s going to firm and brighten as we sleep.

Step 1: Cleanse- use a face cleanser tailored to your needs

Step 2: Apply Tulasara Overnight Sleeping Face Masque

Step 3: Apply Tulasara Overnight Sleeping Eye Masque

Step 4: Sleep!

Step 5: Wake up to beautiful skin!

The Tulasara Overnight Masque was inspired by the Haldi ceremony in India where a tumeric paste is applied to the bride and groom for glowing skin on their wedding day. AVEDA has taken that tradition and added their plant based science to create a super product! AVEDA’s overnight sleeping face and eye masques have plant stem cells to help repair and restore. They contain tumeric extract to help soothe and calm the look of skin and promote more even looking skin over time. AVEDA has also added organic apricot seed oil to work with the skin’s natural circadian rhythm to help support its natural overnight repair process. A medium creme texture with a light aroma of organic jasmine, chamomile, and grapefruit. Now that just sounds lovely to me ūüôā

Alright, moving on to our morning combo. Again, this will take 3-5 minutes at the most. For our morning, we are going to be using a multi benefit facial moisturizer that’s going to give you an instant glow with a power packed dose of anti-oxidants to take on the day. For our eyes, our secret weapon is going to be an eye creme that works like giving your eyes a shot of espresso in the morning.

Step 1: Cleanse- use a face cleanser tailored to your needs

Step 2: Apply Tulasara Morning Renew Creme to face

Step 3: Apply Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme

Step 4: Take on the day!

AVEDA calls their morning creme “yoga in a jar” because it will leave our skin glowing and ready for the day just like yoga! Licorice and molasses extracts help brighten. Anti-oxidants derived from rice bran, vitamin E, and ginger help strengthen our skin’s defense against environmental aggressors. Our dose of instant glow comes from mineral derived luminizers. Our eye creme helps diminish the look of our under eye circles with licorice extract, and coffee bean extract helps energize them!

With school back in session, we need efficiency. Simple to use, these products are back to school must haves! Can’t come into the store, no worries, check out the link below to have your beauty products shipped to you!

Tulasara Firm Concentrate


Up next on Tulasara skincare is all about FIRMING!!! Who doesn’t want a little firming action?!! Whether your’e in your 30’s or late 60’s, this firming concentrate is useful for both prevention and treatment.

Targeted Group: Those who want a facial treatment product that is naturally derived with high performance who want firmer looking skin! (Ages 35-65)


  • Instant tightening sensation
  • Visibly lifts and firms
  • Helps smooth appearance of fine dry lines
  • Non-Acnegic
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Suitable for all skin types and conditions


So what causes wrinkles?!!!!

As we age our body produces less collagen. The epidermis (skin) thins out and hence we are more prone to wrinkles. Take for example tissue paper vs. a regular 8×10 copy paper. The tissue paper is more thin and therefore much more susceptible to wrinkles, whereas the regular copy paper is more resilient. Not only do internal factors play a role in the aging process, but external factors such as environmental exposure like hot summer days, cold dry days, smog, etc. are culprits in the aging process. These external factors¬†can oxidize the skin, making it age as well.

So, to help bring your skin back to balance, Tulasara Firm will:

  • Promote the skin’s natural collagen production
  • Hydrate
  • Restores the skin’s protective lipid barrier


According to AVEDA, natural collagen production¬†is necessary to help¬†“lift and firm the look of the skin, reduce the look of lines and wrinkles” and it will help restore a more radiant, youthful appearance. Hydration is necessary to help plump the skin¬†and to”help smooth the appearance of fine, dry lines”. Finally, having a strong¬†protective lipid barrier helps defend¬†against environmental stressors trying to age you faster!

By using Tulasara Firm, your skin will increase it’s natural collagen production and at the same time reduce the degradation of collagen.

And now some of the key ingredients, for those who must know ;)….

  • Bio-Fermented peptide-promotes skin’s natural collagen production
  • Sigesbeckia- supports skin’s outer layer for a more lifted appearance and fewer visible lines and wrinkles
  • Sweet almond seed extract-tightening effect
  • Organic Ginger Extract- anti-oxidant
  • Safflower oleosomes-restorative effect


*Side Note….Peptides are small molecules that signal the body to produce more collagen*

AROMA: A blend of certified organic patchouli, vetiver, and ylang ylang

My favorite thing to do for the Earth buy organic/local
¬†After going through an entire bottle of Tulasara Firm Concentrate using it morning and night, I purchased my second about 2 weeks ago. Last week when I looked in the mirror was the first time I really noticed that a deep furrow I’ve had for YEARS in between my eyebrows is almost gone. Other deep wrinkles that have run horizontally across my forehead are visibly diminished. The little crows’ feet I was starting to get around my eyes are gone. I thought I’d need Botox to get rid of my forehead wrinkles and could not be more pleased about this product. I have been using in conjunction with the morning Oleation Oil ritual which may or may not have anything to do with the results; overall I’m very happy with how my skin looks. I’ll be sticking with this product for the long haul.¬†

¬†I received a sample over 2 weeks ago and tried it for a week. I was amazed at how quickly this works. I noticed how firm my face and neck felt and looked with the first application. I applied it before putting on my makeup and at night before my moisturizer. This product is amazing and smells so refreshing. I went back and bought the full size yesterday. Thanks Aveda for developing a truly wonderful product. This one’s a winner!¬†
