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.

Getting bikini ready can be a very hairy situation.  Removing unwanted hair is a must when it comes to looking your best.  There are pros and cons to each method of temporary hair removal.  Shaving is fast and inexpensive, however, the stubbly regrowth can appear within hours.  While waxing may buy you more time before regrowth appears, the process is frankly a form of torture.  Depilatories are painless and effective, nevertheless, absorbing these harsh chemicals into your dermis on a regular basis can lead to detrimental skin damage.

So what’s a hairy girl to do?

Sugaring is an often overlooked hair removal technique.  This technique originated in ancient Egypt and can be used on all areas of the body.  A paste made of sugar is applied to the skin in a rolling motion.  When removed, it takes the unwanted hair with it.  Generally, sugaring results lasts between 4-6 weeks.  It is also less painful than waxing because the sugar only adheres to the hair and not the skin and is easily removed with water.  Therefore, there is no unnecessary tugging of the skin.  Best of all, it is all natural.

If you’ve ever checked out my YouTube channel you know that I’m always doing reviews on outstanding healthy beauty products.  One of my hobbies is to try out new beauty products, especially some of those that people seem to be raving over.  Once I get my hands on a product I’ll test it out for at least a few months.    From there, I will issue my thumbs up or thumbs down opinion.  From my tests and trials, I have found some products that I can’t live without now. 

I am extending myself to the Lilikoi Looks community.  Do you have a cosmetic item that you’ve been wanting to get the real scoop on?  Send me a comment and I’ll review it for you.  Before you go out and buy that hot new beauty item that you just keep hearing about consult with Ms Toi.  Let me review your cosmetic in question so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting when you make your purchase.

The hosts of the TODAY SHOW, Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford, faced the camera in the raw.  After taking a challenge from Rosie O’Donnell, the duo faced the cameras wearing absolutely no makeup. Kathy Lee expressed deep feelings of vunerability.  We, at Lilikoi Looks, think the ladies looked as beautiful as ever. 

Do you feel a sense of security and confidence with your makeup on?  Or are you able to go out makeup free with the same level of confidence?  Take our poll and give us your opinion.

In honor of Mother’s Day I’m  highlighting an age old cure-all that grandmother swore by:  Cod Liver Oil.  Some of us may even have memories of having to gulp a spoonful of this concoction every morning.  Grandmother knew that cod liver oil could keep you from catching a cold all winter long, but she probably didn’t realize that it could also help you achieve healthy glowing skin.

The average person’s diet is deficient in nutrients that support a healthy complexion.  Prior to recent times our ancestors consumed foods containing sufficient amounts of omega fatty acids.  Scientific evidence has shown that omega fatty acids can alleviate skin disorders such as acne, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions.  Cod liver oil is loaded with these skin loving omega fatty acids.

However, when it comes to consuming fish oils you have to be aware of its purity.  All fish oils are not created equal.  Nordic Naturals Artic Cod Liver Oil delivers the daily requirements of omega fatty acids without any toxic by products.  This is a highly purified pharmaceutical grade fish oil that has been clinically tested to be free of dangerous toxins such as mercury and lead.  Because of its purity, this product is three times more potent than any lower grade cod liver oil or typical fish oil found in health food stores. 

I have tested Nordic Naturals Artic Cod Liver Oil for several months now and the results are in.  This product had worked wonders for my complexion.  This cod liver oil has cleared up my blemishes and has prevented any more breakouts.  An added bonus is that this product even has a pleasant taste.  Go to to learn more about this amazing product.  

Follow grandmother’s example and take your daily dose of cod liver oil to achieve naturally healthy glowing skin.
