Pecha Kucha is back in Greenville

We are so excited to team up with some awesome people and bring PK Nights back to Greenville!

What is PechaKucha you say? Well, PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really, in a PechaKucha 20×20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds per slide).

Mark your calendars for June 7, 2019, come enjoy First Friday in the Village and then head over to Brains on Fire – see their new digs; meet some cool people; learn something fab and then head out for some fun or home for your comfy pjs!

Presenters are like a “Box of Chocolates” so you never know what you might be inspired by or learn.

Facial of the Month – Tropical Oasis Facial with an Added Twist

Since I am heading out to Hawaii June 15, I thought this facial was only fitting. This may be available in July as well but Skin Script has already sold out! So, what I have is what I have.

Tropical Oasis Facial

This Tropical Papaya Enzyme with either the Seaweed Mask or the Kukui & Macadamia Nourishing Mask combine this summer for a gentle and healing facial for dry, chapped, inflamed or irritated skin.

Papaya fruit, papaya seeds, and Perfection Peptide 3 are the exfoliating properties of this enzyme. They gently loosen and dissolve dull skin cells to reveal fresh, vibrant skin. 

Choose from one of two mask options:

The Seaweed mask provides lipids, proteins, minerals and vitamins which moisturize and nourish all skin types. Also contains chamomile for calming the skin after any treatment.

  • Chamomile is ideal to replenish and enrich dry or sensitive skin. Anti-itching and antiseptic properties also help refresh the skin and reduce inflammation.
  • Comfrey Leaf Extract is a well-known herb that heals blemishes.
  • Wakame (Seaweed) Extract is used to normalize, nourish, and hydrate the skin, as well as regenerate cells, detoxify, and provide suppleness.
  • Aloe Leaf Juice soothes and calms redness and inflammation, and it provides gentle hydration while protecting the skin from external aggression.
  • Allantoin soothes and calms the skin. It also relieves itching and irritation.
  • Tea Tree Oil provides antiseptic properties to reduce the spread of infectious material that encourages acne. It naturally reduces oil production without stripping the skin of protective barriers that prevent future breakouts.

The Kukui & Macadamia Nourishing Mask is packed with antioxidants, hydration and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

  • The kukui and macadamia nut oils (as well as hyaluronic acid) soften and heal dry, chapped skin.
  • The flowers chamomile, plumeria, and orchid moisturize and reduce inflammation.
  • Also packed full of Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) and Vitamin E (Tocopherol) for a surge of antioxidants for bright, glowing skin.

Product of the Month – Couleur Caramel

The #1 Organic Makeup In France

Something NEW and exciting for you at the shop! A healthy, natural makeup that takes care of your skin while respecting the environment!

Couleur Caramel Products

When I was at the tradeshow in March, I came across this booth and decided to give it a closer look. I bought a few pieces to bring home and try: Lipstick, Lip Liner, Eye Liner, Primer and Foundation. I have enjoyed using all of them so decided to bring some couleur (color) into the shop!

Out of the office:

  • June 15 to 29 â€“ Hawaii with Mom to do the Big Island and maybe Kauai
  • Aug 17-20 – PA for Nana’s Birthday

And as of right now that is it! LOL

Mom is officially retiring and June 14th is her last day at school.  Since this is her first year living in the States since 1990 she is already planning holiday stuff! First on the list is an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. It is too hot in Okinawa for that so she has been waiting for years to have one.

  • June 30
  • July 28
  • Aug 25
  • Sep 29
