Don't you just love the summer? It is like being in a soft rain, enveloping truth and what is most important in our lives, setting priorities, being ourselves.

August is a month of promise and love. The air is soft with summer breeze and simply suggests all the mysterious allure Peridot can offer.  Birthstone for August lovelies, here in all its glory, to be revered in all its powerful esteem!

"Wear a Peridot or for thee,
                                                            No conjugal fidelity,
            The August born without this stone,
         Tis said, must live unloved alone."

The Peridot speaks of love and fidelity, of truth and faithfulness. 

It is considered to be the birthstone for the Zodiac Leo (the Lion), and metaphysical properties relate to fame, dignity and protection. Click here for colorful research on this gem!

Be fully aware of the peridot powers, and wear this stone if it is yours borne of the month of August and you will have a) companionship and b) love.
And, more history on the Peridot, the national gemstone of Egypt!

The August Peridot, truly "august" as it holds its own in fascination and stalwart truth.

Seven days certainly go by fast, so here we are, what are our REN Skincare results?

First impression, my skin feels tighter, more cared for. I notice firmness around the major areas of the face~ forehead, lifted cheeks, related jaw line, neck area. I can tell subtle improvements with more even skin tone and brightness, with greater definition and tightening. 

REN once again delivers on a quality product~

at REN, Supercharge your skin with water!
 The Flash Hydro-Boost contains~
  • Hyaluronic Acid, which boosts water in your cells to optimize levels, plumping form within
  • Peptides, which allow the transport and circulation of water throughout the skin
  • Xylitol, which promotes the capturing of water form the environment
  • Ceramides, fatty acids and phospholipids, which create the ultimate barrier against water loss 
Yes, we all age, and the first symptom of aging is loss of hydration. Beauty comes from within as they say, and REN gets below the surface for continued long term prevention of water loss and the inevitable fine lines and wrinkles. 

Slow that process!

Stick with the program! 

Seven days, no moisturizer, no makeup except for eyes and lip color. ONLY the Flash Hydro-Boost!

Here are my results~

Overall general impression? My entire face looks lifted! Just as REN Flash Hydro-Boost does, it acts as a mask using hydration and quality ingredients as its formula for success. 

Thank you, REN Skincare! 

This is a great product! See for yourself!

August is here! Hot nights, soft breezes, dry earth, warm ocean! A very paper sun, blue skies are NOW! The air is warm! Hot! Birds are chirping merrily, very early in the AM. The 'dog days of summer' are upon us, there is no turning back! Take this time to reflect, to re-charge, to appreciate the quiet times. To plan for events yet to unfold, stay tuned! And relax :)
