Skin Deep

blog_beauty1aI’ve tried every skin care product out there, from the pricey and unimpressive to drug store brands, and everything in between. I’ve got oily, sensitive, sometimes combination, occasionally acne-prone, and soon-to-be maturing skin. It’s a real blast. One day I’ve got a zit, another day flaky skin, a fine line here, an age spot there. For years, my skin has looked like a mess. In my search for the perfect solution to my skin care concerns, I finally stumbled upon what has been my across-the-board cure-all—Mario Badescu. Since using the brand full-time for the last four months, my cystic acne has ceased, my whiteheads are few and far between, my dry patches took a hike and even the small fine lines around my eyes seem to be on hiatus. I found a skincare line that works—and it works wonders. (By the way, no one is paying me to write this review. I’m speaking purely from my own experience.) I originally got started with the line by filling out an extensive online questionnaire at mariobadesu.com where someone got back to me within two weeks and sent me a bundle of samples to try. They were all perfect. Shortly blog_beauty1bafterwards, I discovered that the Beauty 360 in Santa Cruz (a new store adjacent to CVS on Mission Street) also sells the line. The staff at Santa Cruz’s CVS are specialized in the line and know it well. They’ll spend extensive time with you to ensure that you find what you’re looking for to solve your skin woes, and they’ll also send you home with a bunch of samples to try. (In future blogs, I’ll spotlight specific Mario Badescu products, including their effective acne line.) Mario Badescu offers a multitude of products including cleaners, moisturizers, serums, masks, scrubs and much more. It’s time to get skin deep.

 


Check out Mariobadescu.com or visit Beauty 360 (next door to CVS) at 1700 Mission St., Santa Cruz, 457-2560.

I'm obsessed with Mario Badescu products too, not only because they work so well but also because they're affordable. Thanks for spreading the word!

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
