Allantoin is natural chemical compound that moisturizes and soothes irritated skin and stimulates new skin growth. Allantoin is also an effective anti-inflammatory, can reduce redness and flaking, and is commonly used to treat burns, scars, and similar wounds.

Aloe reduces flaking, restores moisture to dry or damaged skin, improves healing, and helps reduce skin inflammation. It contains minerals, enzymes, antimicrobials, and amino acids. Antioxidants help the body repel free radicals and reduce skin damage.

Apricot oil is pressed from the seed or kernel and composed primarily of oleic and linoleic acids creating an unsaturated fat. It’s used in many hair and skin products because it absorbs easily, leaves no greasy residue, and has exceptional moisturizing qualities.

Argan oil is a skin conditioner rich in vitamin E, phenolic acid, carotenes, and essential fatty acids including omega-9 oleic acid and omega-6 linolenic acid. Argan oil is excellent for managing dry, irritated, sunburned, or acne-prone skin.

Beeswax is moisturizing, antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory. It won’t clog pores and functions as a humectant, attracting and retaining water on and in skin. It’s a good source of vitamin A and can help reduce itching associated with dry skin.

Caffeine is a naturally occurring compound found in plants that can reduce redness and tighten skin. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps protect against sun damage.

Cucumber fruit extract is a skin conditioning agent and emollient. It reduces inflammation, tightens, brightens, and moisturizes.

Eucalyptus oil is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibacterial. The oil is also a skin-conditioning agent used to treat skin infections and help alleviate skin irritation.

Glycerin is a “skin identical” ingredient, naturally found in and easily absorbed by the skin. It’s also a potent humectant, drawing water from the air into our skin to help retain its moisture levels.

It’s an effective hair moisturizer and conditioner, and helps protect the skin’s collagen and elastin. It’s also an astringent that helps tighten and tone skin, and it’s very gentle on skin.

Honey is a moisturizing and skin-conditioning ingredient that functions as a humectant. Honey also has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties, providing some protection against UV rays. Honey absorbs impurities and is an ideal cleansing agent.

Jojoba oil is a skin-conditioning agent and emollient with skin-softening properties. It can minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It’s non-greasy and non-tacky. It also benefits oily skin by regulating oil production, and helps hair growth by eliminating sebum plugs.

Kaolin is a very absorbent, naturally occurring clay mineral that can be used to soothe dry skin as well as pull oils and dirt out of skin.

Lavender oil is known for its uses in aromatherapy or as a fragrance, but it is also used as a skin care ingredient. Lavender oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and can soothe minor burns and insect bites.

Macadamia oil is derrived from the macadamia nut. The lightweight oil is high in phytosterols and palmitoleic acid, so it offers anti-aging qualities and easily penetrates the skin, reducing inflammation and irritation.

Mango seed butter is similar to cocoa and shea butter. It’s rich in antioxidants and vitamins A & E. It aids in cellular regeneration and is excellent for treating sunburns or moisturizing sensitive skin.

Orange oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been shown to promote the production of collagen. The oil can soothe dry or irritated skin and soften calluses.

Panthenol is quickly oxidized by the body to pantothenate and is naturally converted into vitamin B5 in the skin. Primarily an emollient or moisturizer for the skin, it has humectant properties and also functions as a conditioner for hair. It can also help reduce the itching and inflammation associated with dry or irritated skin.

Peppermint oil is used to relieve skin irritation, itchiness, and redness where inflammation is present. The menthol content of the oil is also known to allow blood vessels to relax and improve circulation.

Sea salt contains sodium, chloride, sulfate, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. They work together to exfoliate, clean, and soften skin by removing dead skin cells.

Spearmint oil contains less menthol than peppermint oil so it is gentler on the skin. It has potent antibacterial and antifungal properties and can help improve circulation.

Why I Joined Perfectly Posh…

     Mentally, I’m a mess so I’ll try to keep this post simple before my brain short circuits. Physically, I haven’t felt well for a very long time. Still unsure which diagnosis is contributing to it and on a roller coaster ride from hell called the doctor shuffle. Here is why & how I decided to give perfectly posh a try…

     I have had sensitive skin since childhood. I react to chemicals, cheap perfumes, artificial ingredients, bug bites, grass and even dust cause me to break out in a variety of rashes.  The cycle starts small with a flare that usually spreads into something larger. This lands me a trip to the doctor where I’m prescribed standard antibiotics and prescription cremes. Medication starts a chain reaction and symptoms that I once had under control will surface with a vengeance. In the beginning it worked some, until my body decided to go rogue a few years ago. These flares left behind nasty dark scares that eventually covered my entire body. 

    Just like others with similar stories as mine, one thing I decided to do was look into better skin care products.  This is only a piece of a larger puzzle I’m putting together.  I’m trying to get on the path to healing and feeling better.  Changing up my old routine, eating right, and taking better care of my body (especially my skin).

     I need something to focus my mind on. I deal with a number of different things on a daily basis which includes chronic pain. I’m limited on things I can do.  I needed to find something I can do from home.  No serious committed schedule because I never know when my hips will go out of place or the pain will be too unbearable for that day.  It’s not really about making money but of course if it takes off that’s awesome. I love the products I’ve tried so far, and never been one to hold back my opinion.  This is something I can try to do at my own pace.

    Im taking back my life, and accepting the challenges I’ve been delt. No one really sees me go through my neuro or heart symptoms other than Mark.  I’ve learned to slap on a pretty face and act like everything is awesome.  I occasionally get out and do things with my kids, family, and friends but majority of my time is spent inside…. resting with heating pads and ice packs, or taking detox baths. And for now I’m ok with that. I’ve accepted this is part of the process.  What has helped the most is being a part of Lyme patient groups on social media and interacting with others who understand and relate to what I’m going through.  I’ve made so many new friends! My Lyme family consist of the most badass warriors ever.  Without them, I would be so lost 💚.

     A couple of years ago I added a new fb friend and Lymie, Samantha May. Over 300 common friends and following her post you realize she is a total rockstar warrior and such an inspiration.  She kick started her Perfectly Posh adventure a little less than a year ago and goes on FB Live to tell everyone about her journey. Wanted to show support and watching her videos explaining the products is how I stumbled across Perfectly Posh. 

     One video caught my attention during my cup of morning joe.  She was seeing how many uses you can get out of the BFF Facewash.  Stuck on the couch with 2 heating pads on my hips I sat and cheered her on lol.  She ended up getting 200 out of that bottle.  TWO HUNDRED. Sent her a “Hell yeah” message and she sent me some samples.  That one sample pack lasted me over a week. She also sent a mask and mini pedi that I absolutely loved.  You will definitely your $$ worth out of this product. To see her video take a look here.

     This got me digging into researching the ingredients and other products they had to offer.  Immediately the things that stood out the most were:

  1. Natural based products. No harsh chemicals.
  2. Paraben Free, No sulfates,  No Fillers, No toxins 
  3. Cruelty Free
  4. High quality & affordable with all products under $25.
  5. Made in the U.S.A.

     I’m usually a sceptical about MLM and Direct sales companies. I have seen too many stories about pyramid schemes and people loosing tons invested into their businesses. Listening to the other consultants stories I realized that’s not the case and made me even more interested in learning more about the company.  

   With the rollout of the Spring / Summer 2017 starter kit I did what anyone who loves a deal on awesome stuff would do…. I decided to kitnap.  For $99 I received $250 worth of goodies in my starter kit. If I stay I get perks & discounts on my future orders. Between the Healer stick, Cackle Spackle,  and Gender Bender I knew I couple keep myself as an active consultant on my personal sales alone. If I changed my mind, at least some friends and family would get some really sweet treats for birthdays and holidays, right?  

    My sponsor / up line is Samantha as well.  After some motivational fb messages from her and Mark I pumped myself up enough to give it a try for at least 90 days. She sent me happy mail FULL of samples that didn’t come in my starter kit so I could give those a try. She also included a pricing guide, ingredients guide and some thank you cards to get my posh hustle up and going.  Thank you Sam!!

   These products are safe to use on your entire family and my daughter is already found her favorites.  She wants to help do my unboxing videos so this will give us something to enjoy together. My family has been supportive through it all.  With these products I won’t have to worry about what’s in it, how it’s made, or where it’s made. Things like this are important to me because not only so I have skin issues but she has them as well. 

   So with me personally I’m not getting too overwhelmed with selling and throwing parties.  I’m going to go at a slower pace, just trying things out myself and giving my personal opinions about things and keep it fun. I have tons of free samples to share with anyone who is interested though just let me know &  I’ll send you freebies in the mail. 

(I have sensitive skin but that should NOT be used as a guide that if the product works for me it will work for you. Make sure you check out the ingredients for yourself and if you have questions regarding the product contact me, or if you have any questions or concerns regarding the safety of you using the product consult your dermatologist.)
