I am back from Hawaii! We started off a little rocky – poor Mom, her flight in Okinawa was cancelled because of the weather. She had to get a hotel and fly the next day so we had to juggle some stuff around. After a very exhausting last few months of closing out her classroom, having her house all packed up and loaded onto a ship, she was ready for some good Hawaiian Aloha.
We have done some super fun things – we love Botanical Gardens and Farm Tours. We visited the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens and the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden on the Big Island, and did a Big Island Bees Tour. We loved the Organic Noni Farm Tour we did on Kauai.
Raspberry Moon has a new look!
You may have noticed a bit of a different design to this email. As of last week, Raspberry Moon Skin Therapy has a new look!
Vanessa Lindo with VR Design created an awesome new logo, and my web lady Stephanie Hobbs with Pixel & Paper Designs gave the website and newsletter makeovers to complement the new look.
Please visit the new website and let me know what you think! New business cards and other marketing pieces are coming soon!
Facial of the Month – Summer Refresher Facial with Pineapple and Lychee
Since I was in the land of pineapple (or former land of pineapple really), I thought it only fitting to have a tropical themed facial treatment this month! So here it is – Pineapple Enzyme with Lychee Mask! So yummy and for those that can handle a little boost we can add some punch to it!
As we spend our lazy summer days basking in the warm sun, UV rays go to work robbing our skin of much-needed moisture and prematurely aging our skin. This is the time for a hefty dose of Vitamin C found in our Summer Refresher Pineapple/Lychee facial. Both products in this special duo set drench the skin with potent amounts of Vitamin C and hydration. This gentle facial is perfect for treating summer skin as it contains a Summer Complex of SymCalmin®, that reduces heat rash, Vitamin C which addresses dark spots and Dermasyr10™ to help manage breakouts. This duo set is also vegan friendly. Great for normal and sensitive skin.
Pineapple Enzyme: With its distinctive prickly skin, spiky green leaves and sweet yellow flesh, the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality as well as a tasty treat. Like many fruits and vegetables, it can be just as nourishing on the body as in the body. Pineapple contains bromelain, a naturally occurring enzyme, which provides a gentle softening and brightening exfoliation. High amounts of Vitamin C quench your skin with age-correcting antioxidants which are vital to overall skin health. Vitamin C also offers another layer of protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Lychee Nourishing Mask: This delightfully rich and sweet creamy mask contains Lychee a tropical fruit native to low elevation lands of China, Taiwan and Southeast Asia. Lychee which means “gift for loyal life” surely lives up to its name. Lychee benefits have been tried and proven in countries such as China and India and have also been well documented in ancient Chinese books. The Lychee Nourishing Mask also contains a Summer Complex of SymCalmin®, to reduce heat rash, Vitamin C to address dark spots, and Dermasyr10™ to manage breakouts.
1 Hour Treatment – $70

Lychees from A to Z
Lychees are a yummy fruit grown on the islands of Hawaii. When we were in Hawaii last month we didn’t get to do a tour that was just about lychee but we did see a few trees that were full of beautiful fruit.
It’s summer so it’s the perfect time to enjoy these little bursts of flavor.
