Kicking It Old School

It works. It actually, really works.

Shea Butter Body Cream

What am I talking about? Using Shea Butter Body Cream to remove makeup. Yes. It’s an old school method but it works!

I mentioned it previously how Joni, our founder and CEO, uses this method to remove her makeup. I was a little skeptical at first, especially about removing our very waterproof mascara. Boy, was I wrong!

It removes EVERYTHING. This is now my go to method of removing makeup. I need to invest in more wash cloths for wiping the cream off my face haha.

So, not only am I cleansing my face, I’m moisturising it and massaging it, too.

I place a hot, damp wash cloth on my face for a few seconds and then wipe gently. Rinse and repeat until the Shea Butter Body Cream has been removed.

My current nighttime routine includes the Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment, followed by Nangai oil and then the evening moisturizer. And then hopefully at least 4 hours of sleep haha.

In other news, I’ve kicked off my SeneBlends, that’s the SeneGence makeup artistry certification. I need to practice 58 different techniques on 58 different faces. 5 down, 53 to go and I’m excited! I’m having a lot of fun helping women look good and feel great and learning at the same time. So, if you’re in Melbourne, I may call on you for your beautiful face! I’m getting better at apply eyeliner but it still needs some work. Same goes for mascara; OMG that’s so hard to do!

I’ve realised that I need a proper, portable makeup chair or else my back will get angry. Thankfully, I have a great osteopath to keep me tuned up hehe

On a personal note, I’ve been looking at getting into powerlifting! I’m not one for a conventional gym (thanks anxiety!). I am predisposed to osteoporosis and need to build up my bone density and of course, get my strength back. I was considering pilates for a while but I need to build up my muscles again and lose inches while I’m at it. Wish me luck it happens and I stick to it!

Makes Sense

The Original Foundation that is.

Hands down the best foundation I have ever used, and I have used a lot of different leading brands over my many years.

What makes this foundation stand out from the rest. It will not melt off your face in the heat when you sweat, it will not streak when you cry. It just stays put. I have personally tested both. It also comes in an airless pump bottle which means you get every last drop of the product. One pump is enough for full face coverage and if used every day, will last you up to 4 months. My winter shade is Tan, bless my Greek genes.

Suited to all skin types and provides a mechanical shield when applied after SeneDerm DayTime Moisturizer or over the Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturizer. Each shade can be used on a multitude of skin tones as it adapts to your skin pigmentation.

Not only all that, it also contains the SenePlex Complex in it, making it an anti-aging foundation! So your make up goes to work while you wear it!

MakeSense Foundation with SenePlex formulations is:

  • Non-smearing, long-lasting coverage.
  • Oil free– can be used on any skin type.
  • Non-comedogenic– does not clog pores.
  • Adapts to skin pigmentation– versatile in that one skin colour may be able to use a range of up to three different shades (or vice-versa for tanning) because of the way the colour pigments adapt to skin tones.
  • Helps to reduce moisture loss.
  • Provides another layer of SenePlex Complex.
  • Water-resistant.

The MakeSense Pearlizer, is a sheer MakeSense Foundation formula containing natural light reflecting minerals for a gorgeous luminescent glow that works on all skin tones.

It gives you the option of creating an even more amazing, soft focus luminescent finish to your look. Simply mix a drop of Pearlizer into your MakeSense Foundation or lightly brush onto the top of ShadowSense or BlushSense shades as a finishing touch. For another look, smooth this stunning pearlescent finish on top of your MakeSense Foundation for a soft focus luminescence. Light-reflecting pigments highlight your facial features, giving you a natural vibrancy. Ka-chow!

Both the MakeSense Foundation and Pearlizer also come in an Advanced Anti-Aging range.

They are made for drier, and mature skin that need a hydration boost throughout the day on top of your DayTime Moisturizer. It is slightly lighter in terms of coverage but provides you with twice the SenePlex Complex. Also comes in a broader range of colours.

To help create a good feeling, Joni Rogers-Kante, Founder, CEO and Chairwoman of SeneGence has set up the charitable Make SenseFoundation. This foundation is a non- profit organization dedicated to helping women in crisis. A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of The Make Sense Foundation makeup will be donated to this needed charity. In this way, our Distributors, customers, and employees join together to make a difference in the lives of others. And that’s something to feel good about!
