Apply this face serum on clean skin before your moisturizer, AM and PM. Use one dropper. Smooth in gently all over face and throat.

Try Our Heart Ritual

Apply a full dropper of Advanced Night Repair to the palm of your hand.

Massage onto face in a heart shape: Using all fingers of both hands, start at the center of your face and move out to ears. Glide hands from sides of face down under chin.

Next, trace a larger heart from middle forehead out to temples. Glide down the sides of the face and close the heart again under your chin.

Finish the Heart Ritual by gently massaging onto neck in a downward motion.

Tree of Life Vitamin C Serum

Many Vitamin C Serums are like water or are similar to very thin gels, and this can result in over-application or loss due to spillage. Our Vitamin C Serum is a thick formula ensuring you have less waste and better application, and allowing you to have complete control over how much Vitamin C Serum you apply at any given time. Typically, only a few drops of any skincare will be enough to cover your face and décolleté, and with our Vitamin C Serum your bottle can last longer through proper application.

Vitamin C is considered an "ultra ingredient" when it comes to skin care, and it is consistently one of the most sought-after ingredients to help retain a youthful look and feel. While there is no "miracle cure" for wrinkles or aging skin, research shows that Vitamin C is one of the best ingredients available for long term use in skin care. 

Our Vitamin C Serum combines amazing ingredients in such a way that your face feels hydrated, smooth, and soothed the moment it touches your skin. Our ingredients help you achieve the vibrant feeling you have been looking for no matter your age, and whether your face is already showing signs of aging, or whether you are worried you might soon, our vitamin c serum is designed to need only 1 or 2 drops to cover your entire face making this serum is a must-have in any skin care regimen.

Lash Idôle Mascara


How Zendaya Uses Lash Idôle Mascara Creates the Look of Long, Lifted Eyelashes

Learn how to make your eyelashes look longer with Lash Idôle mascara. Our no-clump mascara creates lifted eyelashes and the look of lash extensions.

Lash Idole

Want to learn how to make your eyelashes look longer without lash extensions? You’re in the right place. Lash Idôle lash lifting and volumizing mascara can deliver lifted looking eyelashes and lasts up to 24 hours, offering a lash extension effect in just a few coats. With an innovative brush designed to reach every single lash and a lightweight gel formula, this mascara helps deliver the look of long, lifted and volumized lashes instantly — without any clumps or smudges. Keep reading to learn what makes Lash Idôle mascara stand out.

The Lash Idôle Formula

The Lash Idôle volumizing mascara formula was especially designed to be lightweight and comfortable. The lightweight gel formula easily glides onto lashes and has a buildable effect for a customizable look. It also keeps the look of lifted eyelashes; the formula is so lightweight and contains less wax than a traditional mascara, so it won’t weigh lashes down throughout the day. Infused with white tea extract, the lightweight gel formula also keeps lashes feeling soft and supple. Last but certainly not least, the formula makes for a no-clump mascara that also resists smudging throughout the day..

The Lash Idôle Mascara Wand

The Lash Idôle mascara wand is a curved brush that features 360 micro-bristles, which include 90 unique bristle sizes. Both the curved shape of the brush and this huge variation in bristles make it possible to coat every single lash, even the smallest ones and those along the bottom eyelid, from root to tip. Together with the formula, it helps create the look of long and lifted eyelashes.

How to Apply Lash Idôle

You can use Lash Idôle mascara to get the look of lifted eyelashes instantly, or even create a lash extension effect, depending on how many layers you apply. (Even better: The no-clump mascara makes extra coats easy to apply.) Here’s how to apply it:

  1. For fortified* lashes, apply Cils Booster Revitalizing Lash Serum.
  2. Prep with Cils Booster XL Eyelash Primer to help boost volume, length and curl.
  3. Hold Lash Idôle wand horizontally near lashes, with the curved side facing upwards.
  4. Apply mascara in an upward swiping motion for the top lashes and bottom swiping motion for bottom lashes.
  5. Layer as desired to achieve a lash extension effect at home.
    * Based on self-reported of 100 women in a consumer study.

The Lash Idôle Results

While Monsieur Big mascara gives fluffy volume and length and Hypnôse Drama volumizing mascara delivers buildable drama, Lash Idôle creates the look of lifted eyelashes instantly. Thanks to the innovative micro-bristles, it also builds out volume and length for an effect similar to lash extensions — no trip to the salon required.

Plus, the lightweight formula feels comfortable and resists both smudges and clumps — a must for a lengthening and volumizing mascara. Perfect for work and weekends alike, Lash Idôle is bound to become a staple in your makeup routine.

A Letter of Encouragement, Unity & Forgiveness

 


In light of a difficult year, I felt compelled to reach out to you with some words of encouragement. Little did we know what was coming this year, or that none of us could have anticipated the extent of the hardships we would endure.

 

Some of us lost our jobs, some lost businesses, but most sadly, some lost their lives. My heart goes out to anyone that lost a loved one. I have prayed for you even though I don't know you.

 

Upon reflection, I wish to remain hopeful even when times are rough. Faith is the belief in things not seen, even in the hardest of times. Yes, it's hard. Things will get better, and I believe each of have lessons we have learned through all of this.

 

So I ask you today, to understand the end of this rough time is in sight. We have almost made it through...Let's live like everyday is our last, love fully and forgive completely. No matter the color of our skin, or the gender we are, GOD LOVES YOU! He feels every tear we shed, he knows what our greatest fears are, and he sees us...in all our humanity...he sees us. The good, bad and ugly of our human nature.

 

That love is unconditional. The true, endless love only GOD has!

Every country, every nation, every religion, every single person he holds in his hand. He calls for us to love one another in unity. Not division, or judgement, but the togetherness we were made for. They will know we are christians by our love! As the song says, and I want you to know YOU ARE LOVED! YOU ARE ACCEPTED! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

 

As we start the new year, let's remember that we are all called to LOVE ONE ANOTHER..

 

As we embrace this CHRISTmas...let us remember the true meaning.

 

Let us get back to the natural, loving spirits we were intended to be.

 

I continue to pray for HEALING FOR CORONAVIRUS, UNITY FOR MANKIND, FORGIVENESS FOR OTHERS that have wronged us, and COMPASSION for those HURTING IN THIS WORLD.

 

And make the WORLD A BETTER PLACE!

 

Merry CHRISTMAS..From me to YOU!

 

May GOD BLESS YOU!

 

Kim
