Ladies, seriously, can it get any hotter? We have hit the height of summer and these days, my face shines so much that people literally cross rooms to ask me what product I use to make is so “glowy”. Thanks. Thanks for noticing me from way over there. I’m all for sheen, but enough is enough! And how many of those blotting papers do I have to pull out? I feel like a freak!

Nurturing Force has come to my rescue. Their Refreshment For Your Face Hand Made Facial Blotting Paper is made from natural abaca and soft kraft pulp with Taiwanese spring water and essential oil (Lavender or Rose). You can use both sides of the paper and are left feeling either calmed by Lavender or uplifted by Rose. Gone are the days when you blind people with the shine from your forehead. And, very conveniently, the patented dispenser allows you to roll out however many inches, or feet, you need to blot everything up without feeling like you’re pulling 80 sheets out one at a time! The Duo Pack contains one of each scent and retails for $25. Each fragrance is also sold separately for $14. For the month of October, 20% of all sales of Refreshment For Your Face aromatherapy blotting tissues will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “We are putting our company name to the test,” said Linda Rothstein-Sosnick of Nurturing Force, “by becoming a real nurturing force not only in how women feel, look, and treat their skin with the launch of our new facial blotting tissue, but also by supporting breast cancer prevention.”
