With Love From Lemongrass Spa

We salute all of you who are kicking cancer to the curb! Your bravery inspires us beyond what words can describe. This month we received the most heartwarming, awe-inspiring stories of courageous people all over the country who are undergoing a variety of treatments.

When you or someone you love is going through cancer treatment there are so many emotional and physical changes that go along with it. During the month of October we asked our sales consultants to nominate men, women and children in their communities undergoing cancer treatment who could benefit from the healing products in our Loving Care Gift Set. The set includes three of our most hydrating items: Healing Elements, Nail Balm and Ultra Hydrating Body Crème. Over 700 sets were gifted throughout the month and we thought you’d adore hearing some of their astonishing stories.

“So it seems I may have been bragging on feeling so well a little early. I've felt really tired and awful for the past two days and today my hair literally came out in handfuls! So I have an emergency appointment with Kelly and her clippers at 2:30 tomorrow! I'm not risking being patchy! I've been pretty bummed out about it all day but there's no getting around it. It's not as if I didn't know it was going to happen and besides buzz cuts are cool as someone told me today - I certainly hope so!! Anyway I'll post pictures tomorrow after I figure out what the heck to do with a bald head!

On a far more positive note I got a really nice gift set in the mail from Lemongrass Spa because it's breast cancer awareness month. Thank you Sarah B-Wellpup for thinking of me. It's really cheered me up and I'm looking forward to using it all!!”

Loving_Care_Set.jpg
Lemongrass Spa Products promotes a culture of serving  others and assists consultants throughout the year with charitable endeavors through the Lemongrass Spa Giving Back Fund. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness during October, Lemongrass Spa offered two corporate-sponsored initiatives, the Think Pink Blending Brush donation and Loving Care Gift Set giveaway, to help bring attention to the role of potentially-dangerous chemicals in personal care products.

Who doesn’t love a little splurge knowing a portion of one’s purchase goes to a noble cause? In October, Lemongrass Spa Products presented the Limited Edition Think Pink Blending Brush with a promise to donate $1 from the sale of each brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation. Providing safe and affordable skin care and mineral makeup is Lemongrass Spa’s primary objective, and the key to making smarter skincare choices is through education. Heidi Leist, Founder and CEO of Lemongrass Spa, chose to donate proceeds from the sale of the Think Pink Blending Brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation because these two organizations are passionate about educating the public about the dangers of toxic chemicals. In November, Heidi wrote each organization a check for $500 thanks to Lemongrass Spa’s loyal customers.

Customers often seek out products that Lemongrass Spa offers after they’ve witnessed the devastating effects of cancer treatment. These women and men look to limit exposure to ingredients suspected to contribute to the body’s cancer development. During the month of October, Lemongrass Spa sought to provide fifty women undergoing cancer treatment with a little relief by sending them a Loving Care Gift Set for dry and damaged skin. Suggested by Samantha Meyer, a consultant in Oklahoma, after witnessing “first-hand how incredibly hard these kinds of treatments are on the body, and how important the integrity of the skin can be when the immune system is so completely compromised," this trio of healing products includes Healing Elements Balm, Organic Nail Balm and a jar of Ultra Hydrating Body Crème.

Nominations for women, men and children poured in from friends and family wanting to acknowledge their loved ones’ strength and courage through their cancer journey. Each story exemplified a brave individual’s story and exceptional fight while highlighting the unending support from loved ones. Rebecca, nominating her friend Jeanette, exclaimed “She has served our country as a Marine and continues to serve as a Marine Spouse all while fighting cancer TWICE now!” Cherie, who nominated a grandmother in Michigan, said “Even though the treatments are tough at times, she is always glowing.”

Think Pink Blending Brush: Great Contouring and a Great Cause

Have you gotten your limited edition Think Pink Blending Brush? For the month of October, Lemongrass is donating $1 from the sale of this brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation, an indulgence you can feel good about!  I love this brush!  It is lightweight, cruelty free and…well…PINK!!!

It is the perfect brush for buffing in your Sheer Minerals powders to warm them and create a flawless, well-blended look.

We get a lot of questions about contouring and highlighting: how to contour/highlight, what colors to use, and what effects can be achieved with contouring.  The Think Pink brush is the perfect tool for blending in light and shadow wherever you desire.

The best rule of thumb with contouring is that light will appear to bring things forward and dark will make them appear to recede.

Let’s begin with the light. I add a little Matte Veil to a small dot of Mineral Makeup Primer or face crèmeuntil it is a creamy consistency. The eye is naturally drawn to the light, so any feature you want to draw attention to or illuminate, you can bring it out with highlighting.
