First, a little about SIRCUIT® Skin if you aren’t familiar. They are a decade old company based out of Los Angeles, committed to being green, fresh and using only the best ingredients. Their products are paraben, sulfate and cruelty free always. And they never use fillers, artificial colors, artificial preservatives or artificial fragrances. Everything is produced in small batches and this boutique approach translates into exceptional customer care.
I’ve been hooked on their cleanser and lip treatment for about a year so I’m not surprised another one of their products made it into my regular lineup. Unlike the baby oil and almond oil I have used before, Lavish™ | multi-use therapeutic dry oil is incredibly lightweight and absorbs quickly into my skin. I’m not left greasy, but glowing. Nine oils help heal my skin, improving the appearance of scars.
Grape Seed Oil – Rich in linoleic acid, acts as an emollient and lubricant, antioxidant.
Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil (aka Kukui Nut Oil) – excellent source of gamma linoleic acid, smoothes skin while moisturizing and protecting, used to treat dry, chapped, and irritated skin.
Organic Borage Oil – high concentration of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acid (EFA), anti-irritant, soothing.
Arctic Cranberry Oil – provides essential fatty acids and tocotrienols, for nourishing, moisturizing, and protecting skin.
Cloudberry Oil – unique combination of energy and nutrition, rich in skin essential linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, and UV protecting carotenoids, as well as membrane strengthening phytosterols, antioxidant rich.
Bitter Almond Oil – high levels of oleic acid, unsaturated triglycerides provide moisture, easily absorbed in skin.
Macadamia Nut Oil (Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil) – high in essential fatty acids, its natural affinity to human sebum makes it an excellent skin care ingredient. Is often used to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

Frankly, I wasn’t really feeling the holiday spirit. Halloween was basically a non-event, having forgot to buy candy (and it isn’t exactly my favorite holiday). Yesterday it was 88 degrees here in Austin – I’m not complaining, but it certainly doesn’t feel like November. But after a blissful hour with Carrie from Carrie Berry Skincare I could have belted out a holiday tune.
Carrie Berry Skincare is located at Bella SALON & Spa in downtown Austin. The salon staff were very welcoming and the spa, in typical Austin fashion, was casual and cozy. Carrie has that friendly, nurturing way about her (she’s a natural with that Oklahoma background). Plus, she finally validated me by conclusively confirming that I do indeed have dry skin, perfectly suited for the fall facial featuring Youth Accelerator Pumpkin Enzyme Peel by SircuitSkin. Actually quite a deal at $75.
SircuitSkin is one of those skincare lines you can’t help but love. They have been in business for almost a decade and I am shocked that more people haven’t heard of them. They have been “green” since inception with focus on pure, fresh ingredients and cutting-edge technology. Products are cold processed and formulated in small batches. And I love they are always cruelty-free and have absolutely no fillers, artificial colors, artificial preservatives or artificial fragrances.
The pumpkin enzyme peel was incredibly gentle – my skin felt hydrated and clean. The peel actually never tingled, which is rarity for me. But I could sense it was active. Pumpkin enzymes naturally remove dead skin cells and deep clean pores while nourishing with Beta Carotene and other nutrients. The fragrance was definitely pumpkin but not in an overly sweet way. I will admit, I had to stop for a Starbucks Pumpkin Latte on the way home.
And it is worth mentioning, I discovered my new favorite cleanser. SircuitSkin X-trap is a super gentle cleanser (can even be used on post-laser/surgery skin and those with rosacea.) But it still has that gratifying foaming action. Smells amazing and works perfectly with the Clarisonic.
Who doesn’t have dry lips in the summer? And more importantly, who doesn’t want moisturized, pouty and youthful pucker. I was recently introduced to this charmer of a skin care line based in Southern California and I am smitten. One of their best sellers has earned a spot on my nightstand, permanently.
Suggah isn’t a lip balm, but rather a treatment that can be used morning and night. In my opinion, it does everything a lip balm does and more. Plus the smell is pleasant, natural and vaguely sweet.
The consistancy is a super-rich and emollient balm that can, literally overnight, change the appearance of my lips. They become ultra-smooth and hydrated. SircuitSkin achives this by using Shea butter, rather than wax or petroleum. Suggah also contains Maxi Lip™, adding a monster dose of moisture that makes lips look fuller.
No surprise this rockstar is on their bestseller list.
