Summer Time Feet

Summer is just weeks away and it is time to get those feet sandal ready. For a really great leg/foot scrub, try VB Cosmetics' Brown Sugar Strawberry Gel Scrub or the Garden Sugar Scrub. Both smell fantastic and do the job. If you have stubborn calluses, I would recommend Be Silky Callus Spray with either Tea Tree Oil or Lemongrass Oil. Follow up with Heels and Elbows moisturizing cream to keep the feet and elbows soft and smooth.

Now that your feet are ready to show off, you need to add color to your nails. For a quick drying, long lasting pedicure or manicure Dazzle Dry Nail Products are a must. Base Coat for natural nails, many to choose from Nail Lacquers along with the Top Coat for shine and quick dry. What's great about the Dazzle Dry Nail Products, they are toluene, formaldehyde, phthalate and nitrocellulose free, what better way to show off your feet.

Go ahead and get those sandals you have been eyeing, your feet are ready to go out-on-the-town or beach or grocery store or anywhere you take them.

If you do your own pedicures or manicures at home, please read the labels and carefully follow directions. Better yet, take the products to your favorite nail technician and relax. For questions on these or any products either email or give us a call.

Fall Winter Glow

It's time to get your skin ready for fall and winter. Start by exfoliating summer skin to produce that fall skin glow. Abrioné has great body scrubs to help you get your glow back.

Looking for a sugar scrub? Brown Sugar Strawberry Gel Scrub or Garden Sugar Scrub, both great smelling and easy to use in the shower. For something a little more gentle, Abrioné has Sea Crystal Body Scrub. Clean fresh smell that leaves you feeling refreshed.

For those that like to relax in the tub; Fig Caramel Bath/Shower Gel. A delicious scent with great benefits from honey and fig leaving your skin silky smooth.

For the face: Abrioné Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub or you can use the Vita C Crystals with Clean Slate Facial Wash. I personally use the Vita C Crystals and Clean Slate every other day. Not only does vitamin C give you great anti-aging benefits, but also helps protect the skin against free radicals.

To help keep your skin feeling soft and smooth all winter long: Shea Butter Body Lotion! Light on the scent, heavy on the benefits! Stop dry winter skin before it even begins.

For more information on the products mentioned, visit or you can also contact me through the site.

Natural Skin Care Gifts

The holiday season is quickly coming upon us, so it's time to start thinking about what to get that special person. Abrioné natural skin care is the perfect gift for anyone. Know someone who might need an energy center balanced? Abrioné Chakra Masques would be the gift for them. Seven colors corresponding to each chakra conveniently packaged along with Cell Enhancer Hydrogel Moisturizer in a clear plastic tube for easy gift giving or as a great stocking stuffer.

How about Abrioné gift boxes? You can choose our Anti-Aging Gift Box or our Facial Care Gift Box. Each beautifully packaged (no need for wrapping) and containing four of our most popular facial products.

Abrioné has something for everyone, including that special man in your life. Like I have stated before, men need skin care too. How about Cell Enhancer Hydrogel Moisturizer for after shaving? My husband uses it. Handsomely packaged in a "manly" silver jar that would be a perfect stocking stuffer. No fragrance and no perfumes, just great benefits from the natural ingredients.

How about that person who loves to do their nails and their friends also! Then Dazzle Dry Quick Dry Nail System would be the gift for them. From a quick drying base coat for natural nails, to a fast drying top coat for all nails and beautiful nail polish colors to choose from. Who could ask for anything more.

For questions pertaining to Abrioné or Dazzle Dry products you can reach me through our website address.

Skin Care for Men

I have been reading alot lately on how men want good skin care. Women, it's not just about us any longer; men are starting to invade what was mostly our territory. But that's okay, now they can't complain about how much our skin care products cost.

Back to my main point (yes, I have one)! There are products for men and products for women. Most likely they are the same product with different scents. Myself personally, I don't like perfumes or fragrances in my facial care products. I like to feel fresh and clean. I don't want to smell a scent all day long and I also don't want to smell someone else's scent, which could lead to a headache. So for men and women who want great benefits and results from their facial care products without the perfumes or fragrances, then Abrioné is the one for you.

VB Cosmetics does not use any perfumes or fragrances in their facial care line. The scent comes from the combinations of essential oils, which do not have lingering effects. For normal to dry the predominant oil is lavender and for normal to oily it is peppermint. Abrioné has a complete line of facial care products; from facial washes to toners to Vanishing Point, which helps with problem skin. We also have moisturizers; Anti-Aging Moisturizer and Cell Enhancer Hydrogel Moisturizer for day time and for those that need deep hydration we have Night Time Recovery Cream.
Also Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub and for those that like facial masques: Hydrodynamic Facial Masque is one of my favorites and easy to use.

I know there are still alot of "manly men" out there that still think they don't need skin care. You are wrong. My husband, who is about as manly as you can get (hunting, fishing, camping, sports, golfing and just being outdoors) uses Cell Enhancer Hydrogel everyday and sometimes twice a day when he shaves in the evening. He was having problems with dry skin, especially with having to shave so much and I mentioned trying Cell Enhancer. He has been using ever since. He even has his own jar. So it's okay to be manly and use great skin care products, especially without any lingering scents.

Don't get me wrong. I like a nice scent once in awhile, but in a body spray, not in facial care. My son uses what he calls "Man Spray" and it does smell nice as long as it is not sprayed on too much. So there can be a happy medium with Abrioné skin care products. If you would like more information or just have a question regarding a product, you can reach me through our website email address. If I don't know the answer, I know someone who does.

Summer Skin

Summer is in full swing. That means alot of sun for most of us. By now you might be noticing your face is getting nice and tanned but also alittle dry and might be seeing some wrinkles (depending on your age). A really good hydration is what your skin needs. Abrioné Night Time Recovery Cream will help. With extracts of aloe vera, passionflower, pineapple, lavender and jasmine along with other beneficial ingredients your face will receive the deep hydration it needs to help keep you looking great all summer and even into the winter for that winter dry skin. Easy to use, just like the name, a night time cream.Learn more about Abrioné Night Time Recovery Cream by visiting our website

Vitamin C

Researching on the benefits of Vitamin C, I noticed all the articles basically stated the same thing. Vitamin C is a popular anti-aging ingredient in skin care and one of the most effective. Research says Vitamin C can help boost the production of collagen, which is essential in keeping our skin firm and toned (okay, I'm liking Vitamin C already). It is also a powerful anti-oxidant that helps fight the free radicals of our environment which includes; smoke, pollution and (with it being summer time) sun damage. Now even though I read it can help protect skin from UV damage, please still use sun screen. I cannot express the importance of sun screen.

This all sounded great to me, so I decided to start using Abrioné Vita C Crystals, which is 100% Vitamin C, with my Abrioné Clean Slate Facial Cleanser every other day during my shower. I would put a dime size of the facial cleanser along with almost the same amount of the crystals to make a facial scrub. I have been doing this for a couple of months when one day I looked in the mirror and for me, I actually saw a difference in the firmness and tone of my skin. Please don't take my word for it. I have been using Abrioné facial care products for awhile, with great results and I just decided to add the Vita C Crystals into my routine since I have read so much good about Vitamin C. Also remember not all skin types are the same, so results will vary. For me, I like my results. I am not ashamed to say I am in my forties, and even though I don't want to look like I am in my twenties (I have a daughter in her twenties, so that would be too weird), I do want to look great for who I am.

Do your own research and I know you will be convinced to give Abrioné Vita C Crystals a try. To order you may call VB Cosmetics directly or order through our website. Vita C Crystals come in a 1.8oz size bottle retailing for $28.00. If you have any questions, you may contact me through VB Cosmetics' website.
