Revolution Skincare


Brand Mission: To inspire and educate people who are concerned with the health and beauty of their skin to make healthy choices for better living.

Brand Vision: We envision a world in which people are free from the confines of the harsh chemically-based products that they've used in the past, so they can create a better environment for their skin to thrive in.

Take one moment to visualize every Esthetician standing up clapping. This is me, I am them.

Lets get into it. As your Esti Bestie it’s only right for me to let you know about a good deal. However, when it’s multiple good deals that produce results it’s my duty. The name revolution is fitting because they are revolutionizing the way we see skincare and who it’s being marketed too. What I’ve noticed is that young people are now taking more time into the care of their skin. Not only do they want to look good but they want to use products that are good to their skin.


Do you want a REVOLUTION? Well duh . We want paraben free products, vegan products, we want cruelty free products and we want success without side effects. Grab a pen and paper and take notes.


The above products caught my eye for various reasons. Hydration,Resurfacing, Inflammation calming, Blemish battling and Pore refinement .

The list goes on. Below you will see brief descriptions of the products detailing the reasons I ♥️them.

  1. Watermelon Mask- This mask smells amazing. Please do NOT try to consume. It may be vegan but it’s not for eaten. This product is a bit sticky, it’s filled with superfoods overall is great for dehydrated skin. I like to keep mine in the refrigerator for that extra cold rush when applying.

  2. Glycolic Acid Tonic- This tonic will remind you of nail polish remover when applying, that’s the drawback. However, it’s 5% glycolic with ginseng and aloe vera. One of my favorite ingredients has got to Ben glycolic. If I see that on any packaging I BUY ASAP. It’s kind of my thing. My love affair with glycolic is deep, skin deep . Glycolic is like the Beyoncé of exfoliators, by effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin. Products that contain Glycolic Acid are used often to treat scarring, skin discoloration and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. I love this product because it is a liquid exfoliator. Using products that contain texture are fine but I personally prefer the gentle approch. After cleansing use a cotton swab or a 4x4 and wipe your dead skin cells away .

  3. CBD Nourishing Essence Spray- No you won’t get high. Cbd this, Cbd that. It’s a go for me. Cbd has been proven to combat inflammation and help treat acne by soothing the skin. Simple and to the point. Great for those suffering from acne. This also contains calendula extract. Calendula  has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that might make it useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and relieving diaper rash.


I also urge you to check out the Hyaluronic hydrating spray and the replenishing essence spray , this wonderful spray contains ( blueberry extract). Blueberries are also rich in something called anthocyanin, an antioxidant-like substance that repairs damaged skin and promotes positive growth.


To sum it all up these items not only deliver the goods they are affordable. Please give me your full attention ……… Price points start at $6.00 and up. Yes that’s right. Having quality skincare doesn’t mean you have to pay and arm or a leg. Familiarize yourself with ingredients and what they do. I also highly recommend consulting with a skincare professional before starting a routine just to confirm your choices. People often make the mistake of thinking they know their skin type.

Ill continue to post items that were not discussed via my Instagram story/ feed.

Take Care Of Your Skin……. It’s going to be around for a while.


Facial Cupping


In 2016 Michael Phelps introduced me to cupping. Not personally like via television. Seeing him dominate in the water was amazing. However, my eyes focused more on the circular hickeys on his back. Like most I hit the internet and learned he had been using cupping as thereapy for his back. The swimmer used this ancient Chinese treatment to recover and heal affected muscles by drawing blood to the affected area, reducing soreness and expediting the healing time.


Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow.

Proponents also claim the suction helps facilitate the flow of “qi” in the body. Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force. A famous Taoist alchemist and herbalist, Ge Hong, reportedly first practiced cupping. He lived from A.D. 281 to 341.

Fast fwd 3 years , in 2019 we have become more familiar with this treatment. Cupping isn’t limited to just athletes, this technique is being used on “Everyday people” Nurses, construction workers, teacher etc. It was only a matter of time until the beauty industry got her greedy little hands on it. Yes greedy. We’re always looking for a way to slow down the aging process or simply preserve our sexy. Ladies and gents I give you FACIAL CUPPING! I love it. As you know I’m a licensed Esthetician and my job is to know about skincare advancements and this is definitely one of them. 


Facial cupping works to increase blood flow and circulation to leave you with glowing, radiant, decongested skin. Facial cupping uses small, specially designed suction cups to lift and massage facial tissue.  During cupping, fascia  is stretched while restoring fresh-skin tissues." Other benefits of cupping include lymphatic drainage, sinus relief, anxiety, fatigue and migraines .  


You may also experience sweating or nausea. After treatment, the skin around the rim of the cup may become irritated and bruised in a circular pattern. You may also have pain at incision sites or feel lightheaded or dizzy shortly after your session. Infection is always a risk after undergoing cupping therapy.


Like most Esthetician’s I’m my own model or test dummy ( the stories I could tell ya) . In this case it was a success, no one was injured during this process. After cleansing my skin with Image Skincare’s Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser I proceeded to pat my skin dry. I applied Farsali Volcanic Elixir to my face via dropper and began using my cupping apparatus to maneuver around my jawline. Word of advice keep the silicone or glass cupping device moving do not stay in a static postion allowing bruising to occur. By gently squeezing facial cups it applies a suction that feels great, almost like a facial massage . The product glided around my skin and was absorbed evenly and left me feeling refreshed. My skin was supple and glowing. Smaller cups are available for the undereye area. 








Eterno Skincare


May I have your attention please! Haven’t we all had moments we’d like to erase? Eterno Skincare has launched a product that will erase time from your face. If you or someone you know is dealing with fine lines and wrinkles , puffiness and  loose skin, I highly recommend purchasing The Time Eraser.

Eterno was kind enough to send over this product for review and what I found was I honestly loved it. Products that are inclusive to everyone will always have my full support. Ingredients are always a factor and the overall presentation was great.  

Before we get into the breakdown of ingredients and what they target this magical eyecream that’s in a gel like consistency comes in what appears to be an injectable vile. My take... Eliminate the middle man (Dermatologist,cosmetic surgeons) here’s a non-invasive healer that works and won’t cost you an arm in a leg.   I used the word HEALER because not only will your trouble spots be healed but the ingredients continue to work thereafter.

Peptides and Stem Cells ! Are you reading more intent now? Those are exciting words to an Esthetician like myself, almost spellbinding. I mean they are serving magic in a vile . 

Apply product on freshly cleansed skin. When deciding the amount think of yourself as dotting a lowercase i  . Allow to completely dry. You may feel tightening under or around the orbital bone after application ( have no fear) in 60 seconds your miracle will appear!



•Magnesium Aluminum Silicate

This is a naturally occurring mineral created from purified and refined clay. It tightensand smooths the appearance of puffiness, sagging, and fine lines.

•Peptide Complex

This Peptide Complex works to smooth away the look of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

•The Chinese Basil Stem Cells

The Chinese Basil Plant is rich in Omega-3 and Rosmarinic Acid, which is known for its ability to plump up tired skin.

•Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract

Also known as Irish Sea Moss, Chondrus Crispus contains a hydrating, nutrient-rich blend of vitamins and trace minerals such as sulfur, iodine, calcium, magnesium, and selenium.



In addition to The Time Eraser you’ll find a jade roller, facial massager and a dermaroller. A few tools of the trade.



 Jade rollers can  increase in circulation can also help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.  Most well-known benefit of using a jade roller is that it helps to reduce puffiness and inflammation in the face due to stagnation of the lymphatic system.

Facial massagers can increase collagen, stimulate face muscles, brings oxygen to the area.

Dermarollers are AWESOME! Remember that song Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke? That’s what this little gadget can due. Using a dermaroller can help soften fine lines, diminish stretchmarks and hyperpigmentation. 



The Culture of Beauty

The culture of beauty has evolved in many ways. The more things change, the more they stay the same. People want to look their best. Skincare has remained the most prevalent in the culture of beauty. 

No one wants to get older, let me rephrase that no one wants to look old. Let’s embark on a journey to Egypt. Egyptian men and women were equally concerned with beauty and skincare in their present life, as well as the after life. Mud mask, clay mask, rose oils ,donkey and goats milk are a few of the items Cleopatra used. The milk’s contained essential anti-oxidants and was great for Cell Renewal . The recipe below can help you get your Cleopatra Glow.


Cleopatra’s Milk Bath 

•1 liter of milk

•4 table spoons of honey

Allow honey to dissolve in warm bath water then add milk.

Knock! Knock! Who’s there? An Ancient North African tip that helps soothes damaged brittle hair. Argan Oil.Yes you heard me right! Fast forward to today and we are still in love and using Argan oil in abundance. Apply at root and work your way down .


Excuse me? What did you Shea? I’m having way to much fun with this. Shea butter! This lavish, luxurious butter can be found in lotions, soaps and of course body butters/whips. Shea butter has also been proven to reduce inflammation. Milk isn’t the only way to get VITAMIN D . While laying out is something to be cautious of a lot of African women do just that. (Fair complexions beware, melanin reduces the chance of skin cancer in darker complexions. )The benefits from sunlight can combat bacteria like eczema, acne . Remember always wear sunscreen when being exposed to sunlight ,even when it’s not that sunny out . Another way to receive benefits from light therapy is to contact your local Esthetician and see if they offer a service where using a blue light that treats acne by shrinking oil glands. FYI, several colors can be used and each have different purposes. Red is great for Anti-aging . Below you’ll find a link to your home-care treatment .

A woman without paint is like food without salt."- Roman philosopher, Plautus.

The women of India stand beautifully at the altar or special events with henna down to their feet. Henna was not only used to mark special occasions , it was also used to dye hair. Welcome to 2018, where henna can satisfy all your eyebrow dreams. No brows, no problem. Skin sensitivities are a real thing. All semi-permanent and permanent dyes aren’t created equal. Henna is plant based which reduces chances of irritation. In fact California has dubbed eyebrow and lash tinting illegal. Henna however can be applied. Henna brows last 4 to 6 weeks. It’s a noninvasive procedure that’s sure to please.


Lavender oils were used by ancient romans for bathing . Bathing in Rome was a communal activity . Bath houses can still be found throughout Europe, who could afford a private bath in their homes were able to experience their alone time like we do today. Lavender is the MUST have essential oil of them all. According to Dr.Axe , Lavender is the most used plant/flower in the world today. The benefits of lavender were actually discovered over 2,500 years ago. Because of its powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, sedative, calming and antidepressive properties, lavender oil benefits in large numbers and it’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically for centuries. It’s a no brainer why Belli Skincare added this superstar to their Pure & Pampered Body wash. With added ingredients such as  CHAMOMILE & Cucumber its a bonus. Chamomile helps to soothe aching muscles and promotes relaxation. Cucumber contains antioxidants and promotes hydration. I know you’ve seen spa day advertisements where someone is laying down in a vegetative state with cucumbers placed on their eyes ( now you know why) , the skin tissue under the eyes is very thin and can dehydrate rapidly. Dehydration can also cause darkening under the eyes . Belli offers a wonderful eye brightening cream that contains VITAMIN k, guess what also contains vitamin k? Cucumbers! 


Stay tuned as we travel in time to see the evolution of the culture of beauty!

It's the 80's baby


It’s the 80’s baby! Not really, but continuing with our blast from the past and the ever growing culture of beauty what’s old is new . 

Neon nails, side ponytails, bright eyeshadow and heavy foundation are some of the things we are currently seeing in 2018. Can you imagine if Instagram would have been around in the 80’s? Would some of the makeup inspiration be far fetched from today’s looks?

The first thing to remember when applying foundation is having a clean canvas. Having great skincare is the proper foundation for a smooth application. This goes out to my full coverage girls. 

Supplies Needed : Headband. Classic 80’s staple. Purpose keeps hair out of your face while going through your skincare/makeup routine .


Sponge: We love Beauty Blenders. This compact buoyant sponge gives the illusion of airbrushed makeup. Simply add water or your favorite setting spray and apply your foundation . For those suffering from acne we are going to suggest you buy yourself a pack of beauty wedges . These too can be used like a beauty blender but tossed away at the end of use. The reason being, we often don’t clean our tools the way we should, which allows bacteria to breed in our brushes. When you suffer from acne they must be cleaned EVERYDAY!

Cleanse- Belli Skincare Anti-Blemish Facial Cleanser. Wake up! Cleanse before makeup. Golden rule here . You need a clean slate before makeup application. Remove any oil, dirt and debris from your skin. This is also a great time to locate any breakouts, skin changes. Don’t be afraid to touch your face (incomes the soap) feel for any changes, dry patches, under-grounders (those evil guys who wait like a villain around the corner waiting to pop up and ruin your day).

*Helpful Hint* Vanilla Ice was on to something with his hit Ice, Ice baby! Feeling inflamed? Grab an ice cube. Apply on freshly cleansed skin and maneuver ice over you face. After 3 to 5 mins pat dry.

Treat - Using the Acne Control Spot Treatment add a dab to existing pustules (DO NOT apply to broken, open pustules.)

Hydrate - Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator . This lightweight rich moisturizer aids in great makeup application and can be applied in conjunction with your primer. 

Are you ready to slay the day away? Go big or go home! Grab your favorite full coverage foundation and Picasso your way to a great day.

Remember the removal of makeup is just as important as the application. Sleeping with makeup can cause irritation. Before you drift off, remove makeup with our Anti-Blemish Facial Cleanser. Double your fun with this dual product . After cleansing apply two quarter sized amounts of cleanser in the palm of your hand, or a small mixing bowl . Apply cleanser to your entire face with a fan brush, ( max time for masking 10 mins.) Rinse with Luke warm water, pat your face dry and apply serums, creams and mixing potions . This concludes your skincare devotion.


What is Basal Cell Carcinoma?

What is Basal Cell Carcinoma:


Very common

More than 3 million US cases per year.

Treatable by a medical professional.

Requires a medical diagnosis.

Lab tests or imaging often required.

Basal cells produce new skin cells as old ones die. Limiting sun exposure can help prevent these cells from becoming cancerous. This cancer typically appears as a white waxy lump or a brown scaly patch on sun-exposed areas, such as the face and neck.

Treatments include prescription creams or surgery to remove the cancer.

Ages affected

0-2 - Very rare 19-40 Rare

3-5 - Extremely rare . 41-60 - Common

6-13 - Extremely rare . 60+ Very Common

14-18 - Very rare (Data above provided by the Mayo Clinic)

Imagine being 38 years old hearing you have basal cell carcinoma. As the data shows that’s rare. Sean developed an odd shaped raised mole under his eye. Being an esthetician I was aware that there could be something wrong. During his first visit a biopsy was taken and within 3 days we were informed that it was in fact BASAL CELL CARCINOMA. Immediately we began thinking about the sun and all the damage it can do, did he wear enough sunblock, could he have prevented this? The answer is yes and no. BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) isn’t hereditary but is often found in those of fair complexions .


Below are guidelines that will assist in reducing the risk:

  • Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM.

  • Don’t get sunburned.

  • Avoid tanning and never use UV tanning beds.

  • Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.

  • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating.

The way BCC was removed was through a procedure called MOHS surgery. Mohs Micrographic surgery is considered the most effective technique for treating many basal cell carcinomas. What they do is inject area with a numbing agent and proceed to dig the tissue out. The surgeon cuts the tissue into sections, color codes them with dyes and draws a map of the surgical site. In the lab, a technician freezes the divided tissue, then cuts very thin horizontal slices like a layer cake. The slices are placed on microscope slides, stained and covered. This meticulous process takes time. Luckily for Sean he was one and done. His recovery was easy. Mild tenderness and an exterior scar that would heal over time.

BCC has left its imprint on Sean, he’s overly cautious about skin protection and realized that some of the damage could have occurred when he was younger. As youths we don’t really prioritize skincare protection. It’s imperative we educate EVERYONE about proper skincare and the importance of the use of sunscreen and how to correctly apply it.

Listed below are my top rated sunscreens:


Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector; Broad spectrum. Water resistance (80 mins)


Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport; (great for protecting skin from sunburn)


Equate Sunscreen; This SPF 50 sunscreen lotion gives your skin the UVA/UVB protection you need to help prevent sunburn. Equate's sunscreen is paraben-free so it's safe for the whole family to use.

Items that are a must:



•Serums/ Creams



All These things play a part in skincare never rely on just one thing.

When you exercise your body gets used to the workout and eventually you plateau, and have to add something NEW. The same can be said for your skin.

Cleansers strip the skin of all oil, dirt, and debris, allowing your serums or creams to do their job.

Let’s add this little gadget to the mix here.

Always consult with your Dr. if you’re dealing with serious skincare issues before adding devices.

How to use: 

Start with clean skin. Make sure Skin is dry before applying the gel that comes with the Titan. This gel is required to carry out your treatments. It is important that you apply a thin layer of gel to your skin before you start treatment.


Silk’n: Slider Gel

Without the gel, the device will not work. The water-based product not only moisturizes but also helps to guide the device. It ensures that Silk’n Titan moves easily over your skin and prevents it from overheating and reddening. (Per product instructions.)

Treatment areas include: 

•Forehead (including in between brows)
•Right Cheek (including around eyes)
•Left Cheek (including around the eyes)
•Right Lower Cheek (including nasolabial fold, or, laugh lines around the mouth, and jawline)
•Left Lower Cheek (including nasolabial fold and jawline)

Often people make the mistake of not including the neck and the décolleté when cleansing the skin (always include.) Young face/aged neck doesn’t flow well.

When treating the areas mentioned above give yourself 10/15 minutes in each zone. Hold the apparatus against the skin.

Wash your face as remove any residual gel, then apply facial lotion or a mask.

As the days become weeks your skin will THANK YOU!

Titan is available for purchase at or at a price point of $269.00
