BUYER BEWARE

In love with a conditioner that leaves your hair silky smooth?  Can’t live without a lotion that
keeps your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom?  Before you declare a beauty match made in heaven, take a look at the list of ingredients.

If you find propylene glycol on the list, you’ve got a case of irreconcilable differencesPropylene glycol and humans should not mix and mingle.

Propylene glycol is an ingredient commonly used as a humectant in many beauty products.  It gives products the silky, moisturizing texture that we love.  The Medical Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) states that propylene glycol is toxic to humans and can cause irritation of skin and eyes.

Only small amounts are used in products which leads people to feel more comfortable with it being in their products.  However, using these small amounts in your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, etc. can turn into a large amount on a daily basis.

It is important to do your research and be aware of what is going into your personal care products because it ultimately ends up going into your body.

Lilikoi Looks has introduced Ms Toi FBI, who is steady on the case for unsuspecting consumers.  Click Here to see the pilot episode as she takes on propylene glycol.

 

Spring is in the air and summer is just around the corner. The change in season is definitely welcome.  However, the warmer temperatures and higher levels of humidity make it necessary to change some of the beauty products you are using.  Heavy creams and oily products can be retired and switched out for lighter products.   I recently went shopping with this very purpose.  Here are the must have beauty products that I picked up to better suit me in the spring and summer months.

  • Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé

This is the lightest body cream I’ve ever tried.  It completely absorbs into the skin immediately.  It leaves absolutely no oily residue on the skin surface.  It is free of mineral oil, artificial fragrance, and parabens.  The soft baby powder scent also doesn’t clash with any fragrance I wear.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.

  • Moom Sugar Based Hair Removal Kit

Sugaring is a natural, gentle alternative to removing unwanted body hair.  These ready-made kits are user-friendly.  It is organic.  The results are long lasting.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.

  • Waiora Refining Microderm Treatmant

Revive your skin’s natural healthy glow by exfoliating all of the dead cells away that have accumulated over the winter.  This is the gentlest facial exfoliator I have used.  A treatment twice a week keeps pores refined resulting in a porcelain-like complexion.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.
