THE ONLY TAN APPLICATION MITT YOU’LL EVER NEED AGAIN!

The only tan application mitt you’ll ever NEED again! It does it all. Introducing our New luxurious double sided tan applicator mitt.

You all know we have never had an application mitt. Until now ….

The reason behind that was because we don’t contain food colouring or synthetic dyes so you don’t make a huge staining mess with our tans.

Yes, your palms will tan if you don’t wash them after application.

So we now have creams, mousse, waters as tans so a double sided application mitt has you covered. There are so many of our customers that love to use a mitt to apply our tans so we CAVED!

Our unique mitt was developed and created by us for OUR tans. One side is for our tanning waters the other side is for our mousse and creams.

The other awesome thing is it is washable and reusable. Simply, pop it in a wash bag on the gentle cycle or hand wash it in the shower. Whatever tickles your fancy.

 

 

 

 

 

We all fell in love with our new dual application mitt in the office. Can’t wait to hear what you all think. X

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are pore size products making you poor?

Pores! The ever-growing market of products “claiming” to shrink pores may actually make you poor. I mean seriously, the market is filled with products making claims, not just for pores but everything under the sun! So are pore size products making you poor?

So how do we make sure we know what to look for?

What even are pores? Pores are all over your body, two types; sweat pores and oil pores. They are small openings in the skin under your hair follicle, which your glands beneath can pass through particles. Pore’s can be larger in certain areas of your body, especially the face; forehead and nose are problem areas for most. Like the rest of your body, each part plays an important role, so like them or not, your pores are here to help your body push oil to the surface and protect your skin.

Pore size is largely due to genetics, we all have them and we all need them, but what affects the size of them? And can we shrink them? I mean really shrink them?

Put simple, anything that affects the collagen of your skin is going to weaken the elasticity and support of your glands. Culprits for the appearance of pores or the damaging of skin sebaceous glands (under the pores) are sometimes small easy things we can avoid, however not a lot of people know these easy avoidances. So yes, science says you can’t actually shrink pore size, however you can make then appear smaller

However, (We all love that word after bad news right) there is hope! To really change the ‘appearance’ of pores; the key to keeping them small is keeping them clear. This may be the reason why brands claim that their product shrinks pores, when in actual fact it clears them.

Yet you really need to make sure what you are using is really clearing them with natural ingredients, rather than artificial synthetic ingredients that strip the skin of it’s natural oils.

During the day be sure to wear as light a possible coverage with SPF ingredients that actually work, numero uno – Zinc! So here you go, secrets out; avoid the sun if you can, if you can’t which lets face it, if you live in Australia like me it’s pretty hard to avoid. UV rays, squeezing pimples, dead skin cells and trapped sebum all contribute to damaging and /or widening pores.

SO, be very wary of “false claims” that a product shrinks pores and stick to natural products that:

A: exfoliate, reducing the amount of dead skin cells and

B: really give your skin a good clean naturally without stripping the natural sebum under your pores.

Make sure to cleanse before bed, washing away a days worth of dirt and oil build up in the pores is really important before beauty sleep.

If I have been at all successful in sharing my number one message with you all, you will all know and understand what damage the sun does to our skin. It’s causes early signs of aging, pigmentation and most importantly, nasty skin cancers. This is why I am so passionate about creating products to both combat and prevent this damage.

My Global multi Award Winning, game changer, ECO TAN Face Tan Water™, is one product that has claimed cult status amongst faux tan lovers and industry professionals world-wide.

The very first of its kind, actuallyFace Tan Water™ is the only one of its kind and with people all over the world revelling in this revolutionary all natural and organic product, it has certainly upped the tanning game since its release back in September of 2015.

I kept hearing people say that self tanning their face causes them to break out. So that’s why I developed the world first certified organic Face Tan! Our brilliant formulation has oodles of phenomenal organic actives such as hyaluronic acid which is an anti-ageing miracle ingredient, plus orange peel extract to fight acne. It’s non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores.

A perfume called ‘HEADACHE’ – by Sonya Driver

 

Have you ever sprayed some perfume on, or sat near someone that is wearing a strong perfume and suddenly you have a headache and feel queasy?

 

If you researched the toxicity in perfume you would flip. The EWG found that most products that contained synthetic fragrances, such as perfumes, lotions, washes etc contain a hormone disruptor chemical called Phthalates. They are linked to many health conditions such as breast and liver cancer, reproductive malformations, diabetes and so much more.

 

Allergy and intolerance rates are rising due to the amount of chemicals we come into contact with daily. It is near impossible to escape them; from the couch to the dishwasher, personal care products, food, water…. So minimising the dangerous invisible toxic chemicals is the only thing we can do. If I’m going to wear perfume, I just dab a tiny bit of pure frankincense on my clothing.

This year it was ‘revelation’. Now, I’m still exploring the full meaning of the word as it unfolds in my life.

Super Acai Exfoliator is different and unique. (Just the way I like things).

Let’s face it there are so many scrubs on the market, it’s hard to know what’s what.

We do have an incredible Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub that contains beautiful Lemongrass which is incredible on the face too.

But the difference in our Eco By Sonya Driver Skin Compost Skincare Range I really wanted to collect all of nature’s colourful vibrancy and life….

SUPER CITRUS CLEANSER | Organic and amazing!

SUPER CITRUS CLEANSER | Organic and amazing!

I know exactly what I like in a cleanser for my face.

I hate creams on it. I love ingredients such as lemon, lime, grapefruit all the citrus, let’s face it we want a super clean face. That’s what a cleanser is supposed to do. I hate residue left behind.

So my family were the test models. They are normally my biggest critic.

This cleanser is an extraordinary super blend of Certified Organic Aloe, Lemongrass & Caviar Lime to really get in and deeply cleanse and helps regenerate the skin for a smoother and more even complexion and is absolutely PERFECT for my skin (50+) and a big plus for my teenage daughters with their breakout and oily skin. Exquisite!

ORGANIC SKINCARE – Feed your face

SKIN COMPOST 3 STEP SKINCARE SYSTEM

ORGANIC SKIN CARE – FEED YOUR FACE… SKIN COMPOST

The skin care market is so saturated, and the truth of what’s really good gets buried by who can market it the best. Who can get it into the right hands. Who can get the best packaging and on and on… The show begins; ‘stuff’ the ‘actual’ ingredients, let’s not look at that; too tricky, ‘time-poor’. Blah blah blah

I know all this, because I was unaware of this trap years ago too. I now grab a bottle and read the ingredients. Not as difficult as it sounds! You will start seeing the usual bad guys.

That’s why I wanted my SMALL skin care range to be certified by the Australian Organic Food Chain. I buy and support certified organic brands. Whether it’s food or cosmetics. Because I know how hard it is to get certification! It pi$&@s” me off when I hear people say “yes, but is it really organic?” If a product is certified by an Australian Certifier, it HAS BEEN through the wringer!

Face Compost SOLD OUT first week.

Face Compost SOLD OUT first week. It’s a vulnerable thing to create and offer a product in the market. I know I suffered from insomnia before the launch (a bit edgy too, apologies to the folk I live with) there is always a little bit of doubt whether people will love it as much as you do.

So when we SOLD OUT in the first week, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

Bloody grateful woman right here. I gave a few Face Compost Masks to a couple of tough critics in my life. When they came back with feedback like this, I knew it was a Divine appointment, assignment, creation! Face Compost SOLD OUT first week.
