What You Do Daily Really Matters

Recently, I have had experiences in Che Sguardo which prompts me to post this.


The importance of a skincare routine.  I have come to believe that people think that their cleansers and moisturizers are magical.  This is far from the truth!!!  A customer came in the other day and complained about her moisturizer not working, but she doesn't exfoliate AT ALL. It doesn't work that way.  You need to pay attention daily to the needs of your skin.  These needs can change daily.

You have spent gobs of money on very important ingredients for yourself.  Some of you spend more than $250.00 on moisturizing routines.  

For most of you this is going on top of dry, dead skin.  I'm sorry to say that. The epidermis(the outermost layers of cells compacted upon each other) is the boundary between our living cells and the external environment.  This layer must be kept healthy and smooth which is not accomplished by a moisturizer alone, but by your exfoliation(very gentle) and cleansing routine along with diet, water intake, exercise, etc.

Reviderm Skintelligence is definitely intelligent in the way you care for your skin day to day.  Cleansing gently, but thoroughly.  Exfoliating gently, but thoroughly.  Exercising your skin with a cinnamon-based mask, and using serums to deeply work on issues that you have with your skin.  THEN, and only then, comes the moisturizer.  AND, will work!!!!!!!!!  If you stop in, I will gladly give you samples to try out a real plan for younger and healthier skin.  


A Kiss from Che Sguardo/makeupstudio

The Kissing Kit

I must admit to an obsession


Let's agree, the creator of lips should be immensely commended, a pat on the back for a job well done.

So in honor of all the kissing that is destined to be done,

May we proudly announce Che Sguardo's "KISSING KIT".

included in this kit are 5 lip pencils to play, color, and enhance your lips/3 lip glosses including nude, pink, and a fun shimmer for each part of every day/1 RED lipstick that every girl needs and a lip brush

To round out these must haves, ladies, my new lip necessities-THE SMOOTHERS

Apply LIPJAO by Jao after a first kiss to keep those lips plump, moist, beautiful, and begging for more!  You may even wish to apply twice after a Valentines Day that you and he, will never forget.  But please, don't stop there.  Right before closing dreary eyes if wearing nothing else, don't forget your HYDRASTICK by Mustela.  Filled with moisturizing conditioners it's the perfect finale for flawlessly kissable lips after sunrise.  Every week take special care with Reviderm's Enzyme products to keep dry skin totally away.

These items are available in our beautiful HOLD ME bag for $170.00.  Everything you need for your lip wardrobe!


One of the best powder puffs you will find

Did you know that our Cinema Secrets Powder Puffs are made with a memory foam and are washable?

A powder puff is one of the finest tools of make-up application.  Sprinkle a little loose powder into the puff, and then rub the powder into the puff.  When you have folded the powder into the puff correctly, you won't be able to have any powder leave the puff when turned upside down.  Apply loose powder to the face in a kneading or rolling motion around the entire face and neck area(don't forget the ears). Remove the excess powder with a powder brush.  And there you have a very natural matte finish to your face.  Men can use this tip also as you don't look as if you have powder on at all, just a matte look to the skin.


Tangerines and Peaches

I'm just saying that we have the best array of tangerine to peaches and apricots for the summer.  Lips in beautiful tones to compliment the sun's passionate warmth.  Stop in, and I'll make you some samples to take with and try at your home.


Alzheimer's Association upcoming benefit

My family is a long-time supporter of the Alzheimer's Association in Chicago.  They are working hard to help the rising number of people suffering from this dreadful disease.  I encourage everyone to help any way possible with a donation or perhaps attend their annual benefit. The next one, the 24th Annual Rita Hayworth Gala, will take place on Saturday May 7, 2011 at the Hilton Chicago.
