Meg here! It’s Sunday, Sunday evening to be exact and I, like the rest of you, are preparing for our upcoming week. I have the laundry going, had Prudence outside on day trips and play dates and am now getting my ducks in order for the busy week ahead.

On Sundays, I don’t just like to get my house in order, I like to get myself in order. It’s the day I pull out the big guns. It’s when I go into the arsenal and sort through the deep treatments. You know the ones that you’re really going to commit to every single day.

On my hair, I am treating myself to a Leonor Greyl Masque Flueurs De Jasmin (review to follow Wednesday) But it is my night’s skin care regimen I am going to be concentrating on for this piece.

I am extremely excited to tell you about a brand new company, Michael Todd True Organics I’m going to take you through this entire, amazing line. It has everybody talking about it right now. Really, Hollywood has been a buzzing. The Ellen Show had been alerted about this all natural, results oriented line and now it’s what the show has for all of it’s A-List guests in the Green Room. I mean, that makes sense. It is green and all.

The first thing I did was pull my har back and apply my Leonor Greyl Masque Flueurs De Jasmin to make sure my face was a clean canvass. After an afternoon outside I wanted to be sure I had zero grit, grime, sunscreen or excess makeup. Everything had to be completely off. My skin needed to be sand blasted, my pores were looking grim. My skin was looking dull. I was going for it. I was enlisting Megsroomie and she agreed. We were on a mission for fresh, glowing skin. We pulled out Michael Todd True Organic Pumpkin Nutrient Rich Facial Mask


Why was this my choice? The two main ingredients, Pumpkin and Glycolic Acid. Remember, we learned a few weeks back that Glycolic Acid is fruit sugar and natural. It’s also strong and effective. A lot of the time it’s stronger than the chemical ingredients on the market. The second season was the Pumpkin. Once, years back I had the most amazing Pumpkin facial. It was very effective. I could feel it really getting to work and forever I have been searching for a new mask that had pumpkins as it’s main ingredient.

Why does Pumpkin work so well on your skin? It’s chock full of antioxidants, minerals and loads of zinc. Antioxidants will eat away at your dead skin cells and the zinc soothes irritated skin. By combining tow of my top ingredients, I was a very eager guinea pig. I was sold on those, when I read the rest of what my Pumpkin Nutrient Mask contained, I was downright giddy! The list read like a who’s who of All Star skin players. This was the big league! Over 100 essential vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, and fatty acids. All natural, all exfoliating and hydrating. I couldn’t wait.

The first thing (as a package snob) I love how this dispenses. It’s easy, you can control the amount and you don’t have to keep sticking fingers in a jar or tub to get to the product. This is really great if you’re not the only one using it. It is also air tight so it’s going to keep and you don’t have to worry about air getting in there and compromising the effectiveness.

I went first, the consistency was definitey smooth but orange and almost real? little pumpkin bits in there. At first, (remember this is the strong, heavy hitter) it had a sting. I could feel like glycolics eatig away at the dead cells clogging my pores. It didn’t hurt but it was slightly uncomfortable for the first minute and then it quickly calmed down to where I didn’t even know I had it on. Honestly.

“OMG, this smells delish! I feel like a walking pumpkin pie!” Megsroomie was applying the mask in our powder room. Then I heard “Wow! This is no joke. Did it sting you?” I assured her “yes, but only for a minute. You’ll be fine!”

We spent the next fifteen minutes marinating in our pumpkin heaven and dreaming of our new, buff and fresh faces. The results? 

Megsroomie and I were left with soft and fresh skin. I tell the truth, after the first minute the burn is non, so non that there is no tell tale redness after we washed. We just felt clean and our skin looked healthy. It didn’t look or feel as though we had done a harsh treatment.

We were beyond happy with the results and I can’t wait to dive into more of their products. If they work as well and smell as fabulous as their Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask then we’re not surprised they have a home at The Ellen Show. I’m just glad they have a home in my ladiesroom!

This is a fabulous new entry into natural! Pumpkins are not just for Halloween, they’re making it into my Sunday night rituals as a staple.

Tell me! What is your favorite fruit or veggie beauty ingredient? You are what you eat, so it makes sense to not just ingest these nutrients but topically let them do their work restoring balance and health to your outside as well.
