I always like to share when I find a great beauty product, even if its not one that I carry and sell at the Skin Klinic. This line is called Yes to Blueberries! It is sold over the counter at Walgreens, Target, and even the grocery store. The product is Yes to Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes. These pre-moistened facial towels cleanse and moisturize all in one. Although nothing beats cleansing your face with facial cleanser and water, and ideally using your Clarasonic facial brush. I have found these towelettes come in real handy when you are camping, at the lake, or you had a late night out and cant make it to the sink! I would not recommend using these in place of cleansing with a good cleanser and water, but are definitely better than going to sleep with makeup on! They are also great for a quick in between cleanse for the morning either before or after exercising, but then to wash regularly and apply serums and sunblocks before putting makeup on and going out for the day.
These brightening facial towelettes are Oil-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and Dermatologically & Opthalmologically Tested. Another thing that I love about them is that they are 99% Natural and Biodegradable & FSC Certified. They remove makeup, dirt, and oil with no need to rinse. The skin is left feeling clean, moisturized and bright.
The wipes contain Blueberries, rich in anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and Anthocyanins to help fight the formation of free radicals that can damage the skin’s microstructure; Apple, rich in powerful Polyphenol anti-oxidants and natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which help to refresh and brighten skin’s surface; Lemon Peel Naturally derived cleanser to help sweep away dirt and grime while smoothing and brightening skin’s surface.
30 pre-moistened towlelettes come in the package which is travel ready and cost about $7.99
Hope you try them and find them as useful and great as I do!

About 8 of of 10 women have cellulite, even women that are thin or work out often have cellulite. Some of hottest celebrities have cellulite, Pamela Anderson, Misha Baton, Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Beyonce have all been photographed with cellulite. Kim Kardashian has even had Velashape cellulite treatments on her show. VelaShape offers an effective solution for treating cellulite, which is probably why we have seen it on shows like Dr Phil, Rachel Ray and The Doctors.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the unsightly lumpy, dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’ appearance. Cellulite consists of fat deposits that appear mainly on the hips, thighs and buttocks. The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. The margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells increase in size and number. This phenomenon together with accumulation of localized edema, push the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ appearance, associated with cellulite.
VelaShape™ Cellulite Treatment
VelaShape™ features the unique elōs™ technology combination of Bi-polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to deploy targeted heat to adipose tissue. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The net result is gradual smoothening of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite. With VelaShape™ it is easy to enhance your body, improve your lifestyle and feel better about yourself!
