Beautiful White Tea

Posted on October 20, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

Many of us are familiar with the health benefits of green tea. But did you know that white tea is even more powerful than green tea? It also contains significantly less caffeine. No wonder everyone from Oprah to Dr. Oz to Alima’s own Kate have been spreading good cheer about this healing and salubrious natural treat.

Alima’s Half Moon Brush Has Arrived

Posted on October 20, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

Alima Pure Half Moon Brush

Alima is tickled to announce our new Half Moon Brush. This adorable little brush has an exquisite feel to it; dense, silky, smooth…it’s truly a pleasure to glide over  your face. Because it’s so soft and gentle, all skin types can use it, even those with sensitive or Rosacea-prone skin. Plus, it fits effortlessly into your purse or handbag.

The Half Moon Brush boasts a uniquely wide, flat design with a small, manageable handle, making it ideal for blending, highlighting or contouring. It quickly, easily, applies a sheer application of bronzers, luminous shimmer powders, finishing powders, primer powders, and is fabulous for blending or touching up mineral foundation.

I’ve found it works beautifully under my eyes and have been using it there, as well, for spot application. Another bonus: the Half Moon Brush’s slender arc of bristles is especially easy to clean and air-dry.

We’re offering our new brush right now at a special introductory price of $20.00 (see details on Alima’s Home Page). You will also receive, for a limited time, a sample of Autumn Glow Luminous Shimmer Powders; perfect to replicate the burnished, late day glow of the season.

We think you’ll be as pleased with the Half Moon Brush as we are and invite you, as always, to share any questions, comments or experiences.

Happy autumn to all of you!

“Less is more.” We’ve all heard this phrase. Most of us know the importance of preserving natural resources, of avoiding waste wherever possible. But this idea also has widespread value in other areas--even in the realm of cosmetics and skin care, where excess often reigns. In fact, many skin problems can simply be resolved by limiting the number of products we use and the amount of ingredients to be found within each product.

Oil as moisturizer

Many of us have been frightened away from using facial oil, but in fact it can be marvelously nourishing and protective. In the summertime my skin seems to be fine without it, but as the weather changes I find it's the perfect natural moisturizer.

There must be a rainbow somewhere outside right now--it's raining, but the sun is glaringly bright off of the wet pavement. We're easing into the Portland rainy season. As the seasons change, maybe it's time to change up your eyeshadow routine just a bit--add a little drama to go with the sweaters and scarves.
