Face Compost® Mask | Organic Superpower – Eco By Sonya Driver

organic face mask, superpower for you skin

Face Compost Mask | Organic Superpower for your face.

My mother is a natural beauty. Gentle in nature and strikingly elegant in looks. My earliest memories of ANY beauty products as a child was of my mum wearing a face mask once a week as she did the ironing, (ironing sucks, I don’t do it)!

I have always had the exact face mask I wanted to make in my brain for years and years. It took me this long because when it comes to product development, I heavily research ingredients and work with amazing chemists to pioneer something unique that has never been seen before. I wanted to put ingredients in this mask that actually do something and have a specific purpose.

This mask is TRULY unique. I have had the name Face Compost® for years as that was what I wanted it to be based on. Super organic greens, seeds, oils all the stinky chunky good stuff!

No toxic perfume to cover up the spinach, chlorella, spirulina smell. This mask is PACKED with skin benefits. White clay is the best out of the clays for all skin types. It is a great detoxifier and the Chia Seeds get right into the pores which SERIOUSLY leaves your skin feeling deeply cleaned. One of my GF’s said “Son, I feel like I’ve had a facial. This is brilliant!”

It’s my weekly ritual.

So what is it going to do to your gorgeous skin?

Eco By Sonya Driver Face Compost®  is not just any face mask; it is a phenomenal luxe mask for all skin types that will bring your skin to its next level. Smoothing, anti-acne, anti-ageing & nourishing properties. It will brighten and draw out impurities leaving your skin hydrated and drenched in green goodness. Created to clear, smooth and feed.

7 Super Ingredients. 7 Superpowers. 7 minutes…. Next level skin care! Face Compost Mask | Organic Superpower

Certified organic by the Organic food chain of Australia. So what does this mean you ask?

No GMO’s. No animal testing. Nothing!!! I mean nothing synthetic/ artificial. Auditing and strict transparency on every ingredient and process.

Yes, I could make cheaper natural products for you…. it’s not my calling to do that. Making money isn’t my love or the driving force. It’s creating the BEST incredible Aussie organic formulations. At the end of the day that’s all that matters when it comes to beauty products; the INGREDIENTS.

Get my green gunk on your face. X

You know GRATITUDE is the pop word at present. 

As Eco Tan becomes a global organic beauty empire, Sonya Driver Eco Tan Founder takes us back to when she was a single mum, mixing ingredients in her house

You know GRATITUDE is the pop word at present.

I have asked a few people what does it mean to them. Strangely enough it has a completely different meaning to each individual. This is what I know about gratitude…

IT’S A MAGNET FOR MIRACLES.

It’s a supernatural tool that once found will propel you and others into a space beaming with new revelations.

1. In every circumstance look for the gratitude

2. That becomes a habit

3. Habit begins to retrain the brain

4. Brain creates happy hormones (dopamine)

5. Pass on the happiness to others

Practice it. Create a GRATITUDE jar. I have noticed it changes the colours I wear, my posture, my smile, the lines on my face.

I sense people with GRATITUDE. They walk into a room and instantly the vibe shifts. It flows from them, just like dark energy does. It’s light to carry and will energise the owner. Seek it. Speak it.

So as I dig deeper into the mixed world of gratitude I uncover something about myself that leaves me glum. I realise I project so much love and gratitude for others and outward things that I never stopped to be grateful for myself.

I’m so critical of me. Fat arms, no dedication and discipline for exercise, swear too much, drink too much, stress too much, impatient and the list goes on. I struggle to believe a compliment and with all I have overcome and achieved (bucket loads) I have never stopped to think sh&$ you are brave.

So in this moment with you here, I acknowledge and proudly say to myself. I’m grateful for you Sonya.

Blessings- Sonya

DETOXIFY YOUR SPIRIT

Spiritual Detox

My Mental and Spiritual Detox Tips

Shutting my mind so my spirit can thrive

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not lacking in oodles of spirit! I move a mile a minute and my world is full on and exciting and full of beautiful people. Never once do I take any of it for granted, but every now and again, I catch myself caught up in a whirlwind. At this point, I know it’s time to stop and make sure I’m spiritually and emotionally in touch with my spirit and that it’s not being contaminated with toxic surroundings, situations, thoughts or people. This is my time for a mental and spiritual detox.

It’s Winter on the Gold Coast and My Skin Hates it!

Winter Skin Care with Eco Tan

Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver, shares her Winter Skin Care tips…

I thrive in the sunshine and worshipped the sun growing up (we all know how that turned out) and even though I am so grateful to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – even the Gold Coast gets cold in Winter and my skin hates it!

Last week I walked into the bathroom and caught my husband doing the unthinkable in the shower…… that’s right, exfoliating his dry itchy skin with our organic Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. I wondered why I was running out all the time! This product is seriously a must have. It’s a deep exfoliator with beautiful coconut oil and shea butter it creates a perfect drenching. This product is number 1 in my household, we all fight over it.

Beyond Disability

From the Founder

My focus this week… Practicing self care.

You know its not the crap that happens to us in life that defines us, its what we do with that crap. I always try to turn it into a positive. Ohhh… I feel the pain first and go through the emotions of whatever has smashed me and I strive to be an OVERCOMER!

There is no other option.

I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma cut out of my chest, 5 years later one from my forehead. Then recently a penetrating BCC from my nose. The mistake I made was the tiny spot that would bleed on my nose had been there 3 years. I did have it frozen off however it grew back. I recently learnt that freezing BCC only has a 30% success rate.

Transformation is not a solo journey

Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver, shares some insight into her organic company Eco Tan, and how she got to where she is today.

I had a moment today when I realised after 7 years of incredible growth in my organic company Eco Tan (that started out of my tiny kitchen) I still had my first 2 sales people!

As I looked at them, hugging hello to each other, I thought about their personal transformation and it has been truly monumental…

Not everyone comes along for the ride, but not everyone is supposed to… that had to be my hardest lesson knowing in my gut when to cut some people loose but also valuing and liking them at the same time.

Raw Organic Juicing = The Ultimate Superfood!

Eco Tan Loves_ Raw Organic juicing = The ultimate superfood.

Here is what I know: Raw Organic Juicing by Sonya Driver

Superfoods contain a high concentration of vitamins and minerals. Raw organic juicing of superfoods is a power packed way of optimising your health and vitality. I have found by just adding one small thing, what a big difference it can make. Raw organic juicing has changed my life and it will absolutely change yours too!

Do yourself a favour and watch “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”. I’m telling you, this documentary started a revolution. It follows Joe Cross, an Australian man, who regains his health by juicing fruit and vegetables. It truly inspired me.

Following My Calling – Romania Bound

Eco Tan | Founder Sonya Driver with Lonela in Romania

Following my Calling – Romania Bound – by Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver

Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver just returned to the Gold Coast after visiting a single mother and her 5 poverty stricken daughters in Romania. It’s a beautiful story, worth a read…

So last year a friend of mine who travels the world helping and feeding street people, came across a woman with five young daughters, living in a village in Romania.

My friend thought he had seen it all… But this time, his heart was broken and the videos he shared about how they were living horrified me. They were literally sleeping on piles of rags with mice and rats. No water, no food, no door, no window, no beds. Nothing.

Lonela, the mother, was digging in the dirt for worms for 13 hours a day so she could sell them to fisherman as bait. The family were always hungry and sick.
