I have decided to go after my dream of starting my own beauty consulting business. I love giving women advice on all things beauty. I used to be a Medical Administrator, but spent most hours at work giving my coworkers advice on skincare, makeup, nutrition and health. I remember being told by many people that I  should  start my own beauty consulting business. I was a Freelance Makeup Artist for years. I always wanted to be a Beauty Editor. I fantasized of having a little office at Allure Magazine that was filled with beauty products from floor to ceiling. In my fantasy I would scouring beauty magazines, my favorite past time by the way, researching the latest beauty trends and products. I would have my own column giving women all the beauty tips and knowledge I"ve learned through my research. I have decided to give women free beauty consulting for a month. I want to see if this is a good fit for me and in the process will be helping women. You could ask me anything beauty related. For example, what color blush is good for my skin tone, what are the best products for problem skin, how do I cover a pimple correctly. You could ask me to research something for you and I will draw you up your own personal beauty report. You could ask me for nutritional advice as well. Like what supplements are good for the acne, rosacea, dry skin and so on. I am here for you. Your own personal beauty consultant. Please send all questions to email address I will reply the same day. Again, I am doing this for free for a month. Anything you want to ask me, go for it. I hope to hear from you. Till then, Chau for now.

Sebamed Antibacterial Cleansing Foam Review-The best face wash ever!

I have found my holy grail skin care product. It's not some fancy $300.00 jar of face cream. It's a face wash! As a beauty blogger, I have tried numerous face washes. Most stripped my skin and left my skin dry, red and open to inflammation. When you strip your skin of it's natural PH , your skin puts out more oil. With more oil there is an over proliferation of bacteria. Antibacterial Cleansing Foam is adjusted to the skin’s natural pH value of 5.5 while killing bacteria. It has been a godsend to me. I like the fact that you can leave it on your skin for 5 minutes as a treatment. Since I have used this product my skin has been 100 percent clear!
Here is the description and what it claims to do:

Sebamed CLEAR FACE Antibacterial Cleansing Foam ensures the gentle and effective deep cleansing of the pores to combat pimples, blackheads and skin impurities. The mild soap and alkali free wash active substance removes excessive sebum, desquamation and dirt particles without drying the skin. The new coconut oil-based antibacterial active ingredient Montaline C40 combats bacteria and helps prevent the formation of new pimples. Vitamin B5 supports the natural regeneration of irritated skin. sebamed CLEAR FACE Antibacterial Cleansing Foam is adjusted to the skin’s natural pH value of 5.5, protecting and supporting the biological barrier function of the skin’s acid mantle to help prevent new pimples from forming.

Ingredients: Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Triticum vulgare starch, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Talc, Water, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance (parfum), Inulin, Lecithin, Cera alba, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycine, Magnesium Aspartate, Alanine, Lysine, Leucine, Cl 77891.


  1. Leaves my skin soft, supple and clean.

  2. Takes the red out of my skin

  3. Shrinks my pores

  4. Kills all the bacteria on my skin

  5. Keeps me pimple free

  6. Does not irritate my skin

  7. Can sit on the skin for 5 minutes without irritating

  8. Makes my skin glow.

A little pricey for a face wash at $19.99 This bottle has lasted me 2 months and is half empty, if that's any comfort. It is worth the price!

I absolutely recommend this product whole heartily to all my followers. This is the best face wash I have ever used in my entire life. I do not claim something is great because I received it for free. I do not get paid for my reviews. As you will see with my upcoming reviews, I don't like all products sent to me. You can trust me. I started this blog to help women not fool them. Check it out at
