For the moisturizer part of my tinted moisturizer, I decided to use Embroylisse Lait-Crème Concentrè, it seems to be in the kit of every makeup artist I’ve worked with and I love how moisturizing and soothing it is on my skin. For the “tinted” portion of my tinted moisturizer I used Aveda Liquid Foundation, because it is one of the lightest feeling foundations I have found and I do not need to mix it with a different colored foundation to match my skin tone (which I tend to have to do with a lot of other brands), however I’m not sure that Aveda still carries this foundation.

Here’s another combo of beauty products I’ve been pairing lately that someone really should create into it’s own unique product: Neil George Indian Gooseberry Treatment Oil and wholearth Bamboo Body Scrub. The Indian Gooseberry Treatment Oil works wonders for your hair (which is what it is meant for) and the coconut fragrance is so heavenly and divine, that it made me wonder if it would work great as a body oil as well.Â If you have this staple in your bathroom already for your unruly hair, then you know exactly what I’m talking about!
wholearth Bamboo Body Scrub has it’s own unique scent as well, which is difficult to describe. It’s one part green grass, another fresh water…it’s just a nice clean type of fragrance. This scrub is comprised of bamboo powder and crushed walnut shells to exfoliate the driest of skins.
I pumped the Indian Gooseberry Treatment Oil into the palm of my hand (about 4 pumps) and then mixed in a pinch of the Bamboo Body Scrub (this had to be repeated for each leg and arm.) I rubbed it on my skin in circular motions, paying the most attention to my elbows and knees (as it’s that time of year when they tend to get the driest–or at least the most noticeable in shorts and short sleeves!) Rinse off well, but be careful of any of the oil on the bathtub floor so that you don’t slip.
My skin felt lovely and silky smooth and while the overall scent didn’t last on my skin, the scent while I showered smelled great. You can find Neil George Indian Gooseberry Treatment Oil (which really does work well on your hair) at www.neilgeorgesalon.com and wholearth Bamboo Body Scrub at www.wholearthbeauty.com.
