The gift of exfoliating is here...just in time for the summer! ☀️ What's your favorite pouf color? ❤️ 💛 💜 💙 💚 . . #cleanlogic #beauty #cleanlogicpoufs #cleanlogicbody #beautifulskin #healthyskin #exfoliation #bathandbody #skincare #selfcare #beautifulskin #bathgoals #skingoals #bathtime #summerskin #summerskincare #radiantskin #moisturize
When’s the last time you changed your shower pouf? Despite their immense potential to give you silky skin, a study published by the Journal of Clinical Microbiology notes that loofahs and shower poufs host a wide range of bacteria which has the potential to cause serious infections—and the potential to cause a majorly stinky odor. Fortunately for shower pouf lovers, there’s no need to abandon your fave spa accessory— Cleanlogic has a range of exfoliating bath products made with antimicrobial protection to prevent stain and odor-causing mold and bacteria. Of note, these products are available for purchase through Amazon and range in price between $5.99-9.99. Whether you’re a fan of bathing with a stretch wash cloth, loofah, exfoliating gloves, or a body scrubber, Cleanlogic has you covered. Unlike many shower poufs that simply move soap around on the body, Cleanlogic’s products are made with looped, nylon fibers to remove dead skin and leave you feeling squeaky clean. They also contain stretch fiber technology— a unique blend of materials which ensures a smooth, even exfoliating experience.
Banish is an amazing skincare company out of California and their Banish Starter Kit is one of my favorite things and is great for gift giving. The kit is exclusively sold on their website for and comes with the following products:
1. Banisher 2.0: $69
Experience a gold-infused facial with each use! Pure titanium grade bristles are coated with 24k gold. Its gold is antibacterial, & has skin firming and collagen increasing properties. You can now stimulate collagen and increase your product absorption more often! It helps diminish wrinkles and fine lines too! Creates less irritation with fine bristles for a faster repair process. Features a twist off cap which protects the banisher and doubles as a smaller cleaning container where only a small almont of rubbing alcohol is used. The new design will always keep your bristles protected and suspended so the fine bristles will last longer.
2. Activated Charcoal Clay Masque: $29
This mask is what you need if you have oily skin, blackheads, and large pores. It deep cleans your pores and draws out impurities. This clay masque is the best product to use because it only takes a day or 2 in a week to see amazing results! The activated charcoal will take out huge amounts of dirt oils that are found in other nasty stuff within the skin. Since the charcoal absorbs all the toxins, the skin won't reabsorb the bad stuff while the mask is on.
3. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask: $39
It is best for those who have dry skin and needs healing from any skin issues. It dries out the active acne (making it smaller and diminishes it size), reverses skin damage, and brightens the skin. This is commonly used by those who have acne and white/black heads on the skin. So you have an active zit and your event is tomorrow right? Then you can count on this mask that dries up acne in 2-3 days!
4. Vitamin C Beauty Elixir: $19
Get that refreshing feel with the added benefits of Vitamin C! Contains organic ingredients so you can use it daily to tone skin, prevent breakouts, reduces redness and dark spots. It's like water for the dehydrated skin. Instead of always washing the face and bringing a facial wash, this skin care is convenient, portable and easy to use.
5.Banish Oil: $49
Use this all natural vitamin c serum daily for brighter, smoother, and firmer skin. Use at night or pat on after a banisher session. It goes deep in the skin and absorbs all the other skincare products easier with its help. This is formulated without silicones, artificial fragrance, dyes, preservatives, or fillers. No animal derived ingredients and vegan-friendly. Made with the most potent form of vitamin c: L-ascorbic acid. This type of Vitamin C is proven to improve skin tone, radiance, and texture.
7.Vitamin C Creme: $39
A hydrating cream which will leave your skin feeling fresh, youthful, clear, and glowing! Absorbs quickly into skin for a nongreasy feel for people with oily or combination skin. This Vitamin C Cream is concentrated with 20% Vitamin C. You only need a small pea-sized dab for your whole face!

Oh my goodness 😍. My book launched on Tuesday (link in bio) and it went straight to number 14 bestseller across all books on Amazon and went to number 1 in the category of Yoga, number 1 in Beauty & Fashion and number 1 in Spirituality 💗. When I spent all those long days alone writing it (I actually did most of my writing in the local library or at my dressing table 😂) there was no way of knowing how my book would be received. So I am SO grateful to you all for being part of this journey 🙏. Oh and I am quite aware that my posts this week have been the exact opposite of what I usually like to post, they have been a bit ‘all about me’ which I usually actively avoid but sometimes it’s nice to share the good times 👍. Later today I will be posting a lovely Yoga video for YOU 😘. P.S. you may spot a little affirmation in the book in this picture. Throughout the book I encourage you to pause, take a breath and repeat the affirmation you see on the page, 3 times to yourself. Because a happy mind helps everything 💫. . . . . . #book #author #bestsellingauthor #DanielleCollinsFaceYoga #FaceYogaFam #FaceYogaExpert #Yoga #Pilates #FaceYoga #FaceFitness #skincare #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeveryday #yogaeverywhere #fitness #strength #yogateacher #wellbeing #inspire #relaxation #gratitude #beauty #collagen #skin #facialyoga #daniellecollins #faceexercise #yogainspiration #yogi
