Finally, a Tinea Versicolor Treatment That Works!

Who has heard of Tinea Versicolor?  Unfortunately, me.  I first remember these ugly little splotches popping up when I was a teenager…most prominent on my back/chest.  While mine is not as severe as these photos I found online, and it sometimes goes away for months and/or years,  it’s just as annoying!!!  For those of you blessed enough not to make Mr. Versicolor’s acquaintance, here’s some info:

Tinea versicolor: Overview

Also called pityriasis versicolor

We all have yeast living on our skin. When the yeast grow out of control, a person can get a skin disease called tinea versicolor.

Your dermatologist may tell you that you have a fungal infection on your skin. Yeast is a type of fungus.

Many people get tinea versicolor. It is one of the most common skin diseases in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. People who live in tropical areas may have tinea versicolor year-round.

Tinea versicolor: Signs and symptoms

The first sign of tinea versicolor is often spots on the skin. The other signs and symptoms are:

  • The spots are lighter (sometimes darker) than the surrounding skin. The color of the spots can be white, pink, salmon, red, tan, or brown.
  • The spots can appear anywhere on the body.
  • Spots can be dry and scaly.
  • Skin may itch where the spots appear.
  • Spots become more noticeable as the skin tans. The yeast prevents the skin from tanning.
  • Spots grow slowly.
  • As the yeast grows, the spots can combine and form patches of lighter (or darker) skin.
  • The spots may disappear when the temperature drops and return in the spring or summer when the air gets warm and humid.


Fun stuff huh?  Did I go to a dermatologist?  Nope.  I’m a self-diagnoser, and I’m not afraid to admit it because I’m usually correct (90% of the time anyway).  Additionally, I’m more confident in my “diagnoses” because it’s been supported by 2 doctors–I went there for random things (an allergist and a GP for a checkup) and they both noticed, commented, and called it by name.


Now to the treatment, man, this crap is hard to get rid of.  It acts up more when I’m hot and sweaty which is a lot since I workout quite a bit, and live a pretty active lifestyle in the super hot Midwest.  The most common treatment is:

Medicine applied to the skin: There are anti-fungal shampoos, soaps, creams, and lotions that can keep the yeast under control. The active ingredient in these medicines is often selenium sulfide, ketoconazole, or pyrithione zinc. 

This has been my go-to.  I’ve done Selsuin Blue (yes, the dandruff shampoo, contains selenium sulfide), which consists of letting this shampoo sit on your skin for an allotted amount of time, and then showering it off.  The downfall is that this sometimes burns my skin, and has occasionally left a bit of a scar.  I’ve even done Monistat 7 (no, it’s not just for hoo-has).  All of these treatments are time-consuming and expensive.  I’ve done more things than I can even go into on this blog post.  Some worked but took 5000 years, some didn’t work at all, and some kept it from getting worse.  None of them worked very well.  I was tempted to try anti-fungal pills (which I despise taking and putting weird things into my body) but I was getting desperate.

Anti-fungal pills: A dermatologist may prescribe these pills if the tinea versicolor covers a large area of the body, is thick, or often returns after it is treated. These pills are taken for a short time. But anti-fungal pills can cause unwanted side effects. They can interfere with other medicine that you take. A dermatologist will monitor a patient who takes this medicine.  Umm…no ma’am!

I was honored with the opportunity to try TVT Sensitive from Elk Haven Herbals complimentary in exchange for my honest review.  I had low expectations honestly, but boy did this stuff make my life!

tvt sensitiveI’m not going to lie, when I first received it and opened it, it scared me!  To me, it had a faint bleach smell.  Yes, you heard me, bleach!  I thought, there’s no way in hell I’m putting that on my skin.  Now, let’s keep this in perspective, I have a REALLY sensitive nose.  No, it didn’t smell like bleach super bad, like I was getting ready to wash a load of whites…it was just faint.  And, the ingredients are ALL NATURAL.  But still, I’m a chicken.  So I put this stuff up on my shelf and thought, no way!  I left it for about 2-3 weeks.

In those weeks, my versicolor roared…rejecting the outside bike rides my husband and I were taking in 90 degree weather.  It spread from one little friendly spot on my back, to all over my entire back.  No, I didn’t take pics, because I don’t like looking at it nor showing it off. 😦 But trust me, it was bad!  I’m blessed enough to where it doesn’t much spread beyond my back and it’s mostly covered, but I do enjoy wearing tank tops etc and it makes me self-conscience for sure.  I thought, screw it.  What do I have to lose?

I tested it for a day or 2 on a small part of my body.  Then I braved up, and put it all over myself every night before bed as the directions instructed.  I was diligent, I did not miss a day.  A week goes by and it still looks the same.  On that second week, I thought I noticed some SLIGHT improvement. Honey, by week 3, I was a fan!  There was no disputing that this stuff was killing the ugly fungus, and restoring my skin to normal!  After about 5-6 weeks, the versicolor was completely gone!

Needless to say, I am a fan for life!  I will ALWAYS have this stuff in my cabinet, and I’m still using it periodically for maintenance.  It’s all natural, and I experienced no skin irritation or ugly side effects.  The price point isn’t bad (it’s a thin liquid that goes a long way), and truly, for great ,clear skin, isn’t it worth it?

Our Tinea Versicolor Treatment for sensitive skin at Elk Haven Herbals provides the necessary concentration of nitrogenous compounds to eliminate an often incurable tinea infection. By combining the nitrogenous compounds with a base of aloe vera, this product reduces the risk of reaction for those with skin sensitivies. Our eight ounce bottle should last on average two months with daily treatment.


So, do you have Versicolor or know someone that does?  What has been your experience?  Hi-Five, dap, head-nod and a twirl to Fashionably clear skin!



Organic Skincare for Sunny Spring Days

We know the drill–use sun protection, use sun protection, use sun protection!  So what could be better than a company that can provide us with organic suncare?  Winning the lottery?  Sure! Random, yes.  Since the odds are not ever in our favor for doing that, let’s take care of what we CAN control!

coola unscentedYou may have guessed that I’m a tad picky on scents (see previous post regarding DevaCurl products).  So, when I was sent 2 products from Coola Suncare for free in exchange for my honest review, I was super happy that one of them was unscented…yay me! 

The application of this product is great, it has a little bit of a sheen to it which I love but it isn’t greasy at all!  It is truly unscented–no super strong funky sunblock scent, yes the scent you can STILL smell with unscented sunblock (I guess maybe it’s the chemicals?!).  Well, no worries with this product.  Although I could smell that I applied SOMETHING to my skin, it wasn’t super strong, and it dissipated fairly quickly.  Also, big bonus, it didn’t turn my chocolate skin chalky/white!  Yes, I want to be protected from the sun, but I also don’t want to look like someone has thrown powder sugar all over me.  And, it has an SPF 50, which is well above the minimum recommendation.  This is important to me as I’m outside a lot this time of the year.  Winning!

This high performance and non-greasy lotion is unscented and contains 70%+ certified organic ingredients that protect and repair sun damaged skin.

Ipsy: Illamasqua & Manna Kadar Beauty Plus a Skin Win!


Ipsy has been serving up some real winners lately!  My bag had a sweet hodge-podge of goodies, but I wanted to chat about a couple of items that I’m currently holding near and dear to my heart!



Fantasy_compactFantasy 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow is pretty dang sweet!  I won’t be using this as a blush as it won’t match my skin tone, but I used it as an eyeshadow and I LOVED the results.  The sparkle was rich and pigmented, without being cheesy!  It blended with the other colors very easily–I can’t wait to try it as a highlighter.  It’s a little on the pricey side to me if not included with Ipsy, but if you’re game, it’s worth a try!

Our Fantasy 3-in-1 is a pearlized powder blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. It has a special light and velvet-like texture which glides on smoothly and evenly to provide the perfect amount of color for a healthy glow on your eyes, cheeks or desired areas for highlighting. 

  • Available in 1 Shade- Fantasy (Nude Blush Pink) to complement all skin tones
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Pearlized Powder for a shimmer appearance
  • Lighweight and applies smoothly
  • Pigment-Rich
  • Screw off pot  CLICK HERE FOR FOR FANTASY 3-IN-1
precision ink
Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss is quickly becoming one of my new faves.  In my previous post Everyday Makeup Checklist, I told you that Elf’s black eyeliner is at the top of my list.  This still remains true, but what I am enjoying about this eyeliner (also black) is that it isn’t as shiny as Elf’s Another item of note is that the applicator isn’t flexible, and I personally enjoy liquid eyeliners that have a bit of a flexible end–it makes for an easier wing (for me).  This one is a bank-breaker in my opinion–I mean not really, but certainly on the higher end ($28).  Just another reminder how good of a bargain Ipsy truly is (maybe the one on Illamasqua’s site is bigger?)!
Create looks with attitude that no one can ignore with Precision Ink in Abyss. Precision Ink’s fine tip allows for defined application. Long-lasting and waterproof it’s perfect for use anywhere on the face and body to bring out your bold side. You can even use it as an nail art pen; simply seal with Illamasqua Top Coat


rise n shine

Time to search back in your memory banks…remember months ago we talked about Rise ‘N Shine Online?  I used their Bentonite Clay on my tootsies!  Softville (see previous post)

Well, I received their Whipped Shea Butter Scented with Lavendar.  One word, impressed!  Okay, so if I’m required to use more than one word, let me just say this…Shea Butter has a unique stinky smell.  I don’t care from which company, it’s just an acquired smell.  I love Shea Butter, it makes my skin fabulous, and the benefits outweigh the funk. Additionally, the scent dissipates fast.  

Rise ‘N Shine did something grand when they added the lavender to this!  I am not even a lavender fan, it’s just not a scent that tickles my britches.  But this is great, light and still feels wonderfully soothing to the skin, providing lasting hydration. 

Side note:  I recently used their Bentonite Clay again mixed with organic Apple Cider Vinegar for some skin issues that I have, and it made a REMARKABLE improvement in simply one use…no lie!  They also have great prices, check out their site for some of their other organic products!

**I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review



So what did you receive in your Ipsy this month that you’re in love with?  And, are you a Shea Butter or clay fan?  Will you be trying Rise ‘N Shine Online?

Melt Cosmetics & Christina Moss’ Organic Soap

It’s been coveted for a long time…watched from afar.  Drooled over–it made my heart skip a beat.  I wrote its name in hearts, and often dreamt of the day when we would be united.  I have been in love with twins, not identical, but fraternal.  Yes, it’s freaky, don’t judge me!  I love them both the same.  And on Valentine’s Day, my world was rocked when I received them both, courtesy of my husband!  Melt Cosmetics’ Love Sick and Dark Matter Stack!  LOL!  What else could I have been talking about?  Get your mind out of the gutter!

If you’ve followed me, you know that I’ve had a major thing for Melt Cosmetics.  I’ve tried their lipstick and loved, and have really wanted the eyeshadows…but I’m such a drugstore girl, I’ve had a hard time finding the desire of coming off of $48 for 4 shades.

See previous post regarding Melt Cosmetics

But baaaaaby, thank goodness for holidays and gifts! Let’s discuss!


melt lovesick

The Love Sick Stack!

PROMISCUOUS- a beautiful color changing violet-blue! Use it alone, or combine it with black to reveal a completely different shade!

FIXATED – a gorgeous matte grey inspired by one of our favorite lipsticks, Space Cake, so pigmented and cool you have to see to believe 

AMELIE- a perfectly peachy gold, you’ll want to add it all over Cheeks! Highlight! Eyes! It glistens and glides on with ease

LOVE SICK- a beautiful ultra-matte burgundy-red …inspired by our most popular lipstick 6six6! 

dark matter stack 1.jpg

Dark Matter Stack!

BLURR- a soft beautiful blending/eraser shadow

UNSEEN- a cool-medium delicious caramel brown

ENIGMA- a beautiful rusted red-brown

DARK MATTER- the most pigmented pitch-black

Okay, so both stacks are equally as awesome!  Prior to purchase, I showed SLIGHT favoritism to Dark Matter.  But, all of these shades compliment each other, and I’ve had so much fun mixing and matching.  It is true, they’re VERY highly pigmented and deliver great color that lasts all day without creasing, fallout and have are so easy to blend!  Amelie, of the Lovesick Stack, is such an original color, and so bright!  I’ve enjoyed putting this on my brow bone, as well as well as my bottom lash line (and truly every where else in between 😉 ).  Promiscuous is one of the brightest, most unique shades of purple that I own!  Love Sick contains the most sparkly colors.

Dark Matter is team captain of the matte crew.  It oftentimes is difficult to get matte eyeshadow that’s highly pigmented, especially for dark skin like mine.  Dark Matter is the truth, shows up so well on my skin and does not fade throughout the day.  Enigma, is amazing–I would say these collections are highly moving to the top of my favorite list!!!!  They’ve recently added Radioactive, which I’m not yet a super fan of and have not yet purchased.  We’ll see how that plays out…


At the end of the day, after dabbling in all that makeup, it’s great to have something organic to wash and cleanse your face and body!  Do you remember in my previous post when we touched on some of the great products from Christina Moss Naturals? 

organic soapNo, this is not a roast!  (or maybe it is just me, I’m pretty imaginative).  This, is the organic, all-natural Glycerin Bath Bar! It lathered well, yet was very gentle on my skin, and I was able to even use this on my face!  It’s a smooth and silky consistency, and I didn’t experience any skin tightness which is great.  It comes with 2 bars and it won’t break the bank.  Here’s a little about the product:

  •  PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. HYPOALLERGENIC. ESPECIALLY GREAT FOR THOSE WITH VERY SENSITIVE, DRY OR OILY SKIN: NO harmful chemicals (no SLS, SLES, PG, PG derivatives, parabens, sulfates, dyes or synthetic fragrance). Greatly improves condition of the skin. Please note color may slightly vary from bar to bar.
  • ORGANIC & 100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS: Satisfaction Guaranteed. Our products are prepared fresh on a regular basis to ensure they are at their optimum best when you receive them. We even go one step further and guarantee purity and freshness for 6 months after your purchase date. Should anything appear unsatisfactory to you within that time, simply return it for a replacement or full refund.
  • CRUELTY FREE – NO ANIMAL TESTING. VEGAN FORMULA: Environmentally friendly. TWO BAR SET. Gently & thoroughly cleanses your skin without stripping, drying out your skin or leaving build-up. Baby safe! Our soap does not contain any toxic anesthetizing ingredients (tear duct numbing agents). Tip: When washing baby’s hands or face area, rinse them right away to avoid baby getting soap in eyes.

These Boots Are Made for…Faces?

Top of the morning!  I’ve got the scoop on more healthy skin care–#teamorganic!  Have you ever heard of Boots?  Sure you have.  But have you heard of Boots Botanics?  Well, never fear–I received products for free in exchange for my honest review.  And being the kind girl I am, I’m so happy to share with you what I’ve learned ;).  Let’s get started!

boots balm

The first thing I used was Boots Botanics Organic Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm.  This gets an A+ for uniqueness at the very least, I’ve never used something like this before!  The consistency is similar to Chapstick or Carmex and it also smelled AMAZING.  Very natural, very light.  It contains Jojoba  Oil, Shea Butter and Rose Hip, so it didn’t leave my skin dry at all.

“Massage balm over face and neck.  Soak the cloth in warm water and use as a gentel compress to draw out impurities.  Remove remaining Balm.  Finish by soaking the cloth in cold water and press gently over face to close pores.”  Ok? Done!

boots day cream I was provided with the opportunity to try Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream which I also loved.  It too smelled amazeballs USA!  It has a really creamy lotion-like consistency which I enjoy!  It’s on the thicker side, but not at all too heavy for the face.  I also love day creams that have an SPF!  I’ll likely add a stronger one on top of this when I plan to be outside more, but SPF 15 is a great start!  It also contains hibiscus which is said to brighten the skin tone, and Hyaluronic acid to boost moisture levels.  Remember when we discussed the perks of Hyaluronic Acid in my previous post?


boots night cream

Boots Botanics Hydrating Night Cream has a great consistency to it as well.  To be honest, it has a little bit more of a perfumy scent than what I enjoy–a scent very different than the other 2 products.  But as I’m sure you’ve noticed, and as I’ve said, I’m really sensitive to scent and very picky!  My skin felt great when using this overnight, and I woke up to really soft skin!

Some key points about Boots:

-Included in each product is a unique key extract, selected to target a specific need

All products are free of parabens, mineral oils, paraffin waxes, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (doesn’t this sound like the name of twin girls?!), replacing with man-made chemicals and natural ingredients when possible

Not tested on animals

Packaging uses recycled materials where possible

The best part is the easy availability and the price points, as you can buy these products at Tarjay aka Target.  Winning!  Click here for Boots Botanics


What do you think, have you tried these products?  And if so, was it a win for you?  Will you incorporate Boots into your skincare regimen?


Cheers to fashionable skin,









Butter Me Up: Keeping Your Skin Soft


Good Ole Paula Dean!  LOL.  Whooooo makes these?  Have I got your attention?  Good.  No, I’m not talking about stick butter, although wouldn’t that be interesting as hell?  I know someone (me, me, me) would jump on the bandwagon with a quickness if I read a good article listing the benefits of slathering my skin with some kitchen butter!  But I’ve got one better for you, as I was sent some products free in exchange for my honest review.  Let’s chat…


BUTTERelixir-baby-600x600BUTTERelixir was created by 3 yogis who wanted something moisturizing for their skin after they practiced yoga.  Fast forward, and BUTTERElixir was created!  And of course it’s my fave–all de naturale (okay, you caught me, so I’m not bi-lingual)…

The smell?  Light and citrusy!  I smelled oranges when I first opened it which honestly isn’t my favorite smell for skin, but it wasn’t off-putting at all.  After my shower while my skin was still wet, I used Butter Elixir Baby all over (this sounds like the beginning of a naughty movie, I’ve revised this sentence like 3 times).  LOL!

It really felt great on my skin.  It’s light yet moisturizing.  And the smell dissipated very quickly but the soft sheen remained…my skin felt great the rest of the night! This would be a great one for summer time!

Light and ingenuous, BUTTERelixir baby is a concise and delicate formula that was designed to be gentle enough for the skin of everyone, including little ones. A trifecta of skin soothers work in tandem to soften, and invigorate the skin and the senses. Avocado Oil, embedded with a high ratio of proteins, fats, sterolin, lecithin and potassium, is a powerful carrier of hydration and stimulation that liberally supplies nutrients topically. The oil from this fruit is absorbed by the skins derma layer and is capable of penetrating much deeper than the surface. A powerful oil on its own, when paired with Calendula oil it tenderly addresses the skin and scalp with its comforting touch. Together the dynamic duo of Avocado oil and Calendula oil are pious enough to envelope the skin of oneself and those we love the most. The enlivening notes of tangerine dance subtly in the divine formula to uplift the spirit and senses. The scent of citrus rounds out the spirit leaving the skin not only refreshed and hydrated, but happy. The soothing qualities of the oil will pay off for both parent and child… Especially around nap time. BUTTERelixir baby is for all, without exception.

Ingredients: Avocado oil, Calendula oil, Tangerine essential oil.

Have you heard of BUTTERelixir?  If you’re into essential oils, this is a good pick, although a little pricey!  And you can’t beat the great skin, no harmful chemicals combo.  What do you think?

Fashionably Yours,








Organic Anti-Aging with Amara!


In my quest to become like Benjamin Button (so my husband says), I stumbled upon Amara Organics! 

benjamin button


Since I’m deep into my dirty-thirties, I feel like I better do something to maintain my skin and like we talked about my previous post, I’ve recently started a regimen which I hope will support my quest!  I’ve started using these products along with my Christina Moss Naturals.  So, let’s talk about the products I received for free in exchange for my honest review!

I’ve said many times that I really love organic products!  Therefore, I’m happy my new skin-care routine doesn’t contain a bunch of harmful chemicals.  This is a total win in my book:

Amara Organics is committed to using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients in our skin care products.

Here is a list of ingredients that are NOT found in our products:

  • No Petrochemicals
  • No Parabens
  • No Artificial colors
  • No Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates
  • No DMDM Hydantoin/Diazonial Urea
  • No EDTA
  • No TEA, DEA, or MEA
  • No Phthalates
  • No Methylisothiazolinone


Vitamin C Cream for FaceThis has a great consistency.  It may be a tad thick for my face, but I’ve continued to use it occasionally and sparingly.  I love that it doesn’t have a smell and it’s super creamy and smooth!

-Stimulates collagen to restore elasticity and erase fine lines and wrinkles
– Neutralizes free radicals to reverse UV and environmental damage
– Protects against further UV damage
– Improves skin texture for a smoother, brighter complexion
– Fades age spots and discoloration

Advanced Age-Defying MoisturizerI didn’t love the smell of this, but it wasn’t rank.  It’s thinner than the Vitamin C Cream, and felt great/soaked into the skin well.  So I’ll keep using this occasionally too!

 Long-lasting hydration for soft, supple skin
– Sooths and nourishes dry, damaged, and irritated skin
– Plumps and fills in fine lines and wrinkles
– Antioxidant protection against environmental damage and free radicals
– Lightweight formula won’t clog pores or leave skin feeling greasy or oily

I’ve also had the privilege of trying the Anti-Aging Serums…winning!  I’ve had no adverse reactions so far, and they all feel super light and great on the skin.  Additionally, they’re all unscented which I love!  I’ve used the retinol every couple of days or so to avoid irritation.  I also try to use this at night, and always wear sunblock on my face during the day–I’ve read that hyperpigmentation can occur if the skin is left unprotected when using retinol.


Retinol Serum 2.5% with Hylaronic Acid & Vitamin E

  • Repairs skin on a molecular level to erase fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulates collagen for firmer, smoother skin
  • Speeds up skin cell turnover to fade brown spots, discoloration, and acne scars
  • Improves texture and tone for a smoother, softer, more radiant complexion
  • Unclogs pores to clear up acne and prevent future breakouts


Vitamin C Serum for Face with Hylaronic Acid & Vitamin E

  • Increases the production of collagen to bring back skin’s natural elasticity and counteract fine lines and wrinkles
  • Powerful antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals to reverse damage caused by the sun, pollutants, and cigarette smoke
  • Protects your skin from UV damage such as age spots, discoloration, and fine lines
  • Improves skin texture to give you a smoother, brighter complexion
  • Combined with Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid for extra powerful anti-aging effects


Hyalronic Acid Serum for Skin with Vitamins C&E

-Plumps and hydrates skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles
– Locks in moisture, giving skin a dewy, supple glow
– Boosts collagen production, restoring skin’s natural elasticity
– Softens and smooths for a more even skin tone
– Leaves skin looking radiant and youthful

I hope to report back after a couple of months and let you know of any changes that occurred!  I’m so new to the serum world, and I was honestly scared to put all this stuff on my face, LOL!  I tested it all first for several days on my collarbone to see if I turned into a lizard.  Luckily, I did not. 

So, who’s a serum girl?  What can you share with us about these top of products–good and bad?  And, have you tried Amara Organics?  I feel like their prices are reasonable too, as a little goes a long way!

Fashionably Young,
