Tulasara Calm Concentrate


So here is the first of three concentrates, Tulasara Calm! According to AVEDA these concentrates have been designed to “help accelerate the skin’s natural ability to restore itself.”

Targeted Group: Those who want a facial treatment product that is naturally derived with high performance who want to get rid of irritation and physical redness


  • Instantly calms and soothes
  • Hydrates
  • Reduces visible redness over time
  • Dermatologist Tested
  • Non-acnegeic


So what causes all this irritation, sensitivity, and redness?!!

  • genetics
  • environmental exposure
  • excess heat
  • excess cold
  • smoke
  • pollution
  • lifestyle
  • diet
  • stress


All these factors can lead to inflation, and therefore compromising your lovely skin’s barrier. When the skin has been compromised, too much water is let out and hence loss of hydration. This also allows for irritants to have too much access to the internal parts of your skin, which can lead to irritation.

So, to help restore your skin back to balance, Tulasara Calm will:

  • strengthen
  • protect
  • soothe


By using Tulsara Calm, the skin’s protective barrier will be strengthened and will be restored over time to help improve its resilience.

ANNNDDDD why do we want resilience?!

One, it will help keep moisture in to help keep the skin healthy because hydration is important for restoration.

Two, it will help keep irritants out or not have them permeate your skin as easily.

Some of the key ingredients, if you really must know…..

  • Red Marine Algea- soothing and calming effect
  • Pomegranate- anti-oxidant properties and anti-inflamatory
  • Caffeine- anti-irritant and helps take up water to maintain hydration
  • Ginger- helps soothe and it has anti-oxidant properties
  • Red Raspberry Stem Cells- nourishing and restorative properties and anti-oxidant effect


*Side note….the Red Raspberry Stem Cells are the master cells of the plant that allow it to respond to its environment by providing to the plant anytime it needs something. This is how plants regenerate after being budded. This is also why plants will start growing after being cut and put in water, the stem cells are responding to its environment.*

AROMA: A blend of certified organic Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, and Neroli.

 I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I was really skeptical because of the price and the amount of product so I first just tried a sample. And after using it one day.. WOW. I have oily/sensitive skin and some acne with acne marks and it soothed everything. The more I used it, the better my skin looked and felt. I am now planning on going back to Aveda to buy one because I am so impressed. 
Yes, I recommend this product.

Tulasara Skin Concentrates


Hello wonderful people!

Who is ready for some more plant and flower power to help nourish your lovely faces?!!!!

In the previous posts, we introduced the Radiant Awakening Ritual that you can do at home in the mornings to help exfoliate dead surface skin cells and to help nourish your skin with a blend of six 100% certified organic oils, to help reveal a natural glow to your complexion.

Now, we are following up with these powerful concentrates.

So what are they?

Well they are not face cleansers, or lotions, or masques. According to AVEDA, Tulasara  concentrates are treatment serums formulated to help target several concerns in order to help “accelerate the skins natural ability to restore and rehydrate itself”

Who are these for?

This is for anyone trying to significantly increase their skin regime’s results/potency. The concentrates have three targeted formulas-Calm, Bright, and Firm. From the names you can get and idea of what each one has to offer. We will be going into further details in upcoming posts about each of the three concentrates.

How do you use it?

It is to be used after you cleanse your face, before you moisturize. It can be done up to two times a day, morning and night, and the more it is used, the greater the effects.

You are always welcomed to come in and experience these wonderful serums to see what they can do for you! Don’t forget it’s still September and we are doing free mini hand facials to help you experience Tulasara Skincare!

Stay tuned!

Radiant Awakening Ritual


AND here it is folks! If you have been following the recent posts, then we want to welcome you to one of the great new additions to AVEDA’s skincare line.

So what is it?!

It is a 2 step morning ritual to bring out your natural radiance!

So how does it do that?

First, the facial dry brush helps exfoliate the face to bring about a more smooth and refined complexion. The circular motions that you do while you dry brush, help stimulate blood flow to the face as well. The brush is made with ultra-soft nylon bristles and it fits in the palm of the hand for great control. You want to start at/near the décolleté area and work your way up towards the face. You will use the dry brush in an outward and upward circular motion from the middle of the face and work your way out. You will continue to do this on the other side. After a minute or two of gentle exfoliation, the face is now prepped to receive some nourishment.

You do not need to wash your brush everyday. You wash your brush once a month with a gentle cleanser and let air dry.

Second, you will follow by emulsifying 4 pumps of the Oleation Oil into your hands. Working in a back and forth motion from your décolleté to your forehead, you will smell a wonderful light aroma of organic rose, jasmine, and geranium. The Oleation Oil is 100% certified organic. It contains a blend of Rose Hip, Apricot Kernel, Sunflower, Jojoba, Sesame, and Sweet Almond Oil. According to AVEDA, this blend creates a “luxurious feel and slip for effortless self-massage”. This blend will help nourish the skin after exfoliation. Let it sit for at least 4 min, while you go prep some coffee, brush your teeth, read a book, etc. Follow with your normal skincare routine.

So when do you use it?

This is meant to be used in the morning upon wakening. Before you wash your face. Daily use.

Why should I use it?

It’s a great way to start your day by bringing out your natural radiance, and helping your skin restore its balance!


Available at Fandango for $89
