  • Hey!!! You Have Any Menthols?

    We sure do!!! But not the smokable kind.  The kind that I am talking about this time is the kind that will help to cure what ails you.  Remember when your grandmother had that one salve that was go-to for whatever problem you had?  If you had a cold, she would rub that salve on it, give you a kiss & sent you off to bed.  If you fell down & skinned your knee, she would rub the same salve on it, give you a kiss & sent you off to bed.  If you were failing in school, she would rub that salve on your head.  If you had gotten your heart broken, she would rub salve on it & so on & so forth.

    In my family, that salve was Vick's vapor rub.  It seemed like every adult female member of my family had a secret stash and was already to rub its menthol vapor-ey goodness into child chests at the first sign of a cold, give a kiss & send us off to bed.  Then, almost magically by morning we would be cured (or so it seemed).

    Re| Store Bath Soak is inspired by that fond menthol memory.  It is chock full of the menthol that according to Livestrong, can relieve the symptoms of a wide variety of respiratory ailments pertaining to:

    • Congestion
    • Asthma
    • Colds
    • Flu
    • Bronchitis



    Menthol relieves the symptoms by thinning the mucous & expelling it right on out of there. The article also states that menthol can treat intestinal gas problems, alleviate headache pain.  So, maybe my grandmother was more ingenious than she was given credit for. 


    If you are looking for a cruelty-free, vegan option bath soak that is full of the congestion relieving menthol, then Re | Store Bath Soak is your only option.  It is also contains eucalyptus, ginger, & blue chammomile ( which will take your blues away & lull you off to sleep).

    (& we totally recommend this method ) eating lots of veggies such as avocadoes, apples, cruciferous veggies (steamed or raw), drinking lots of warm teas & consuming warming foods.  #govegan4life  #veganislife


    Take Supplements

    But you need to take electric whole food supplements such as:

    Dandelion  Liver Support

    Burdock  Uber Cleansing

    Acerola Berries Mega Anti-Aging just to name a few.

  • Sexy Summer Skin Tips!!!

    Summer's here and I aint been on the court yet.  So, Ill hustle to the mall to get me a short set. But, before you get that short set (or romper) ask yourself this question, "Is my skin ready?"  If yes, great!  Keep up the good work.  If no, keep reading to find the steps to get and keep your skin sexy & summer ready.

    Step 1:

    The first step in getting your skin summer ready is to find a moisturizing cleanser that will not strip away your skin's natural oils while ridding your skin of  dirt and grime. You will need to rid your skin of the dirt and grime because you cannot effectively treat dirty skin.  Your treatment will only get absorbed by that icky layer of dirt and none of it will actually reach your skin resulting in an #epicfail.  


    Step Two:

    The second step is to gently exfoliate your skin using a gentle exfoliant such as Apres Sun Body Polish.  It is made without any harsh abrasives because you want to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin to rid it of any skin dulling dead skin cells.  You almost MUST rid your body of its dead skin because when the sun sun hits your it immediately begins tanning your top skin layer. If the top skin layer is already dry and it will flake off and leave you with an uneven, blotchy tan.  #eeew


    Step Three:

    The third step is to rub in a good natural oil such as Apres Sun Body Oil you dont want your new younger layer of skin to dry out and age prematurely.  So, you must give it the nourishment that it needs because the thirst really is real, especially in the summer time.


    Step Four:

    The fourth step is to apply sunscreen.  No matter what, never forego your sunscreen.


    Step Five:

    The last and most important step is to lay back and enjoy yourself.


    If you follow these steps correctly you be able to turn yourself into a beautiful bronzed babe all summer.

  • Spring Skin Revival Tips

    Spring is here! But I’ll bet you didn’t take care of your skin last winter.  You didn’t, did you?  That’s okay, I’m not going to judge you (much).  But, what I am going to do is give you a few tips on how to get your skin ready for those short, skin showing, skirts and dresses that I know you have been dying to wear, ever since the thermometer dipped below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, last year.


    Soak In The Tub

    It’s important to soak in the tub because soaking softens the layers of dead skin. 



    Now that you have softened all those layers of dead skin, it’s time to slough them off.  The best way to do that is by using:


    • A Pumice Stone

    A pumice stone is used primarily for feet because it’s much too hardcore for the skin on the other parts of your body.


    • A Loofah

    Now, a loofah, on the other hand, is perfect for the skin on the other parts of your body.  Just add a little soap to it and scrub away those dead, lackluster, skin cells.


    • Scrub

    Just take a handful of our sugar scrub, girl.




    This is optional.  But, if you want to have the ultimate in healthy, glowing skin, use a light oil as a moisturize. But, you wont need to if you use our body exfoliants.




    Get out there and show off your softer, glowing skin.  You deserve the attention you’re gonna get.

  • Winter Skin Care Tips

    Baby its cold outside!  The cold, dry harsh weather is here and so are the holidays! Now, darling, Remember: When the winter months come in, you lose the moisture in your skin.  Also, when it gets colder outside you tend to wrap yourself in heavy layers of clothing that rob your natural skin of its natural moisturizers, leaving your skin a bit lackluster and dull. want to get closer & all of a sudden you are that much more cuddlier.  So, its important to keep your skin (and hair) kissable, touchable & huggably soft.  How do I do that, you ask?  Well keep reading & we will fill you in on how to keep your skin luminous & silky all winter long.


    Tip #1

    Soak in the tub

    Soaking in the tub will soften any dry, dead skin cells, allowing them to be able to be easily buffed away.  You should also add skin conditioning baths soaks such as, the Moon Luv Black Lava Salt Bath Soak. Its warm vanilla scent will calm you and put you in the seasonal mood as its enzymes work to soften & exfoliate your skin.


    Tip #2


    To prevent your skin from losing skin firming lipids and anti aging moisture, lock them in with a good body creme. You should use a body cream beacuse of all of the friction from all of the layers of clothing you wear while trying to keep your body warm. To help keep your skin moisturized, we recommend, Moon Luv Vanilla Black Rice Body Polish that serves as both, body exfoliant & body moisturizer.  Remember: Its important to use a moisturizer in the winter time because the weather is usually harsher & drier in the winter months and can wreak havoc on unprotected skin.


    Tip #3

    Get close to someone.

    Give someone a hug or a kiss & spread some good cheer.

  • The Importance Of Having A Skin Care Routine

    With everyone upping their "selfie game" with various color correcting, strobing, contouring and non-touring techniques, we are forgetting the first step in being beautiful.  Having a smooth, healthy, canvas to put all of that paint on. For all of you beauty new comers out there, let me break it down for you.


    In order for your make up to go on smooth and look it's sexy best, you must have smooth skin.  You can pile on the primers, heavy coverage, media filters etc.  But, you are actually exacerbating the problem.  To optimize your beauty filter's performance, you must filter all of the toxins out of your skin.  Be it whether the toxins manifest themselves in the form of acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc.  You must find a skin care regimen that works for your skin type.


    Most skin care regimens are made up of three main parts:

    • Cleanser
    • Toner
    • Moisturizer


    Now, when you go into the store to purchase these items, you will find that you have to choose from, not just the different brands, but also the different skin types.  The main skin types are:

    • Sensitive Skin - skin that can't tolerate a lot of different chemicals & breaks out easily.
    • Normal Skin - skin that doesn't generally have many issues, not too oily nor too dry.
    • Combination Skin - skin that is mostly oily around the nose, cheeks and/or forehead.
    • Oily Skin - skin that is acne prone, has blackheads, whiteheads, sebum overproduction etc.
    • Dry/Mature Skin - thirsty skin that can't get enough moisture.
