Nonie of Beverly Hills

Nonie products are Healthy Food for the Skin!  Our product line is easy to use – simply cleanse, tone, and select the Nonie moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.  All Nonie moisturizers contain AHAs – Alpha Hydroxy Acids from extracts of Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Maple Cane, Orange and Lemon Oils.  AHAs gently exfoliate the skin by loosening built-up dead skin, improve skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase cell renewal and help lighten age spots. Using our Cleanser, Tonic and Moisturizer, there’s no need for a separate make-up remover, eye cream or scrub.  The Nonie line does not contain any animal products and is never tested on animals, so it is excellent for vegans and vegetarians!

Amazing 20% Line Drive during May!

SKIN CLEANSER: A gentle cleansing lotion for all skin types which leaves the skin clean, soft and moist with closed pores. Is also an excellent eye and make-up remover. For best results, use without water!  Apply to dry face and neck using cotton pads.  Repeat until the cotton appears absolutely clean.  Follow with AHA! Skin Tonic & Moisturizer.  Continued use produces a more youthful appearing skin.  Will not burn eyes and safe to use for contact lens wearers.  Can also be used as a gentle shaving lotion.

SKIN TONIC: A dewy fluid that refreshes and tightens the pores, giving a smooth texture to the skin.  The main ingredient is Hamamelis water, which is a refined witch hazel. We only use grapefruit seed extract as the natural preservative. After cleansing the skin, apply to face and neck using cotton pads.  Is also an effective and soothing, non-stinging aftershave. Contains built-in natural bacterial protection to aid in preventing infections from nicks and cuts.  The light lemony scent is not a perfume but a combination of five different essential oils of citrus, so the scent will not linger.

BRILLIANT MOISTURIZER: This moisturizer is excellent for normal and combination skin . . . equally effective for the oily areas (i.e., T-Zone) as well as other areas. It contains 5% AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) in a moisturizing base of coconut oil, almond oil, and gluten-free wheat germ oil. Gentle enough to use around the delicate eye area.  Use day and night.  

PROTEIN MOISTURIZER: This moisturizer is wonderful for dry skin, mature skin, and vegans. It contains 5% AHA. This moisturizer also contains orchid oil, which acts as a buffer for the skin to absorb the AHA’s. Sometimes people with dry or mature skin are more sensitive, so the orchid oil helps soothe the skin. This cream is called Protein because of the protein from organic, non-GMO soy milk we use. It contains more gluten-free wheat germ oil, so it is richer but not heavier than the Brilliant Moisturizer.  Gentle enough to use around the delicate eye area.  Use day and night.  

NEW CONDITION: This moisturizer is great for those with oily or problem skin that is prone to breakouts. It has many essential oils beneficial to oily skin care such as tea tree, peppermint and eucalyptus. It contains 5% AHA. This cream can also be used around the eye area. Don’t let the tea tree oil scare you…. this also is a very gentle cream. The combination of the oil of seed of grapefruit and the essential oils help in clearing up breakouts and the AHA’s exfoliate the dead skin cells gently and microscopically without leaving any scars, which can happen if you use heavy scrubs on skin with breakouts.  Use day and night.  

BODY LOTION: You’ll find orchid oil in this fantastic body lotion. Easily absorbs into the skin imparting a wonderful sheen without being greasy. A little bit goes a long way. Has a light, lemony scent from the natural citrus oils that does not linger. Use after bathing or anytime your skin is feeling dry.  Excellent on feet, hands and the entire body!  Contains less than 2% AHA naturally forming from fruits so it is excellent for the entire family.  Can also be used on the face.

8 SPF MOISTURIZER: This is the same formula as our Brilliant Moisturizer, with the addition of orchid oil and micronized Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. They are natural, physical sun blockers.

15 SPF MOISTURIZER:  This is the same as our Body Lotion with the addition of orchid oil and micronized Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide.  They are natural, physical sun blockers.

10% AHA: This moisturizer is same formula as the Brilliant Moisturizer, with the addition of orchid oil and 10% AHA instead of 5%. The 10% AHA! should be used by those who have already been using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or receiving professional facial treatments.

HIS! Shave Cream:  A non-foaming cream that provides a close, comfortable shave for men and women!  Contains built-in natural bacterial protection from Hamamelis water, Tea Tree,  and Grapefruit Seed Extract to aid in preventing infections from nicks and cuts.  Gives a smooth texture to the skin.  Refreshes and tightens the pores.  Will not burn or sting and can be used around the eyes.

DIY Gifts for Your Favorite Foodies!

Dipping Oils and Flavored Vinegar

Written by Gayle

These gifts for foodies are so much fun to make and give! The vinegar takes about a month for the flavors to “marry”, so be sure to let your loved one know before they pop it open for a tasty salad!

Flavored Vinegar

easy+DIY+gifts, holiday+gifts, homemade+gifts, flavored+vinegar

Place your chosen flavorings in a quart-sized jar. For these three, I used
Raspberries and fresh mint leaves (I used champagne vinegar)
Slices of lemon peel, sliced garlic cloves, chopped fresh rosemary (I used white wine vinegar)
Fresh cranberries (I used rice vinegar)

Pour the vinegar over the items into the jars. Cover with a non-metal lid (or put a piece of plastic wrap between the lid and the jar). Refrigerate for about three to four weeks, swirling it around every day.

After a month or so, pour the contents through a strainer and then into your chosen bottles (with a funnel). Add a gift tag (mine were just printable business cards that I got at an office supply store) with a ribbon. Viola!

Italian Sun-Dried Tomato Dipping Oil

easy+DIY+gifts, holiday+gifts, homemade+gifts, italian+dipping+oil

I love to use dipping oil on bread when we eat Italian food. Here’s a simple recipe to do it yourself!

1/4 tsp each dried italian herbs–basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary
1 TBSP chopped sun-dried tomato (the kind that is packed in oil)
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly-ground pepper
1/2 TBSP chopped fresh organic parsley
3 TBSP grated organic parmesan cheese
2 cups Organic Extra-virgin Olive Oil

In a small pan, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil. add the herbs and the garlic, and just heat until softened.
Remove from the heat and let cool. Add the rest of the ingredients and the rest of the oil and then blend well. Pour into a bottle and allow to sit for several hours before serving. You can pour into gift bottles and spread a bit of your kitchen magic around to your friends and family! These should be used within about a week, or kept in the refrigerator.
