Say goodbye to dry and dull winter skin while supporting an important cause with this locally-based body polish business.

Thirsty Skin Body Polish wants to take your dry, wintry skin from drab to fab. 

“Thirsty Skin Body Polish is a coconut oil based sugar scrub kissed with 100 percent pure essential oils,” says owner Brigott Dawn. “The scrub helps to buff away and remove dead skin cells all while hydrating, moisturizing, and reinvigorating your skin.”

Not only does the scrub remove dead skin cells, but it also encourages cell turnover, moisturizes your skin, and can even help to eliminate skin conditions such as keratosis pilaris and eczema. 

Dawn says the scrub is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin everyday, as it’s personally formulated to exfoliate and moisturize skin.

Currently, there are three scents available from Thirsty Skin, including Lemongrass, Lavender, and Eucalyptus. 

Not only does Thirsty Skin help to make your skin better, but the business also aims to help animals in search of homes. 

Because the business finds inspiration in Dawn’s 3-legged rescue dog Ruby, $1 from every scrub sold is donated to a hand-selected Animal Shelter of the Month.

“We are actively working on expanding our scents as well as expanding our products to include lips,face, and feet,” says Dawn. “Stay tuned!”

She’s a former makeup artist turned natural beauty product guru and advocate for the world’s pollinators. Keep reading for all the buzz.

Emily Hoskins has a vision of making the world a more beautiful place. From better skin through her eco-friendly lifestyle brand with vegan skincare and all-natural cosmetic products, to a brighter future for the world’s pollinators that her business supports.

Her business, Green Bee, was launched after she learned about the thin line between insects and humans. “I was touched by the story of the Monarch butterfly and its incredible migration,” she explains. “Unfortunately, scientists have observed a significant decline in the species in recent years and I wanted to do what I could to help.”

That way of helping came in the form of beauty products. With 16 years of experience as a makeup artist, she knew she could create a product that not only helped her clients look and feel better but also helped a cause close to her heart.

Emily Hoskins, founder of Green Bee

Through the sale of Green Bee’s skincare products, Hoskins is able to raise funds to establish protected habitats for all pollinators. 

“I help individual and commercial gardens apply for registration on national protected habitat maps,” says Hoskins. “The certifications come from the Cincinnati Zoo’s POLLENation program as well as the Monarch Watch program from the University of Kansas.”

Hoskins says that her efforts are not only helping to protect Monarch butterflies but similar pollinating species such as honeybees, moths, birds, and bats, 

When she launched her business, Hoskins set a goal for herself. She wanted to raise $1,000 in her first year of business to go toward pollinator habitat conservation. With less than 9 months into her business venture, Hoskins reached her goal.

With a new decade on the horizon, Hoskins has a lot in the works for Green Bee. “In addition to two newly launched CBD products, we hope to expand to include more eco-friendly lifestyle products,” she says. “In 2020, you can look forward to reusable water bottles, bamboo straws and cutlery sets, organic cotton clothing, upcycled fashion accessories, and even some fun kitchen items.”

Microblading is one of the hottest beauty trends. Learn about the local expert who has been providing services to Dayton and now has a studio in OTR.

Erica Kidder, who has worked in the beauty industry since 2008, has focused on hair, waxing, and event style hair do’s. But now, Kidder is shifting her focus, and is making women all over the Tri-State feel beautiful and empowered. 

Kidder started in 2008 at Square One Salon and Spa, in Centerville, Ohio, and has since expanded her horizons. Keeping up with all the new beauty trends, Kidder has decided to open a salon of her own, that holds a focus on microblading as early as May 2. “After five years, I left to explore a career as a small business owner- the past three years I’ve worked within Salon Lofts. Last year, my passion for the industry expanded into permanent makeup, and with the addition of microblading, I quickly outgrew my loft. I made the decision to focus almost exclusively on microblading and I am now leaving Salon Lofts and opening my first salon.”

Microblading is a newer concept, which is rapidly making its debut to the Greater Cincinnati area. “When I discovered microblading, it was only popular in bigger cities,” explains Kidder. “I knew it was only a matter of time before it reached the Midwest. The service fascinated me. I love that there is an alternative to traditional permanent makeup, that typically leaves clients with a solid filled in eyebrow. Microblading offers the most natural result.”

When someone talks about microblading, it can come off as a foreign concept. Microblading in short, is a non-permanent tattoo that fills and adds shape to one’s eyebrow, and Kidder understands just how important eyebrows are to women. “This luxury of a permanent makeup service replicates hair strokes in the eyebrow, creating fullness, definition and balance,” explains Kidder. “While microblading is deemed ‘semi-permanent,’ it is still in the ‘tattoo’ family. Due to the pigment being placed under the skin more superficially than a traditional tattoo, naturally it fades faster. Fading is considered a positive characteristic in microblading, as it allows for updates in shape, color and provides the ability to work with changes in aging skin.”

During a microblading appointment, Kidder says, you can expect to spend up to three hours at your initial appointment. During the first part of this session, she collaborates on a shape that is perfect for you. “We will take time to choose the appropriate pigment color based on your skin tone, and existing brow hair,” she says. “Once you approve your template, we will outline the brow and then provide anesthetics for comfort.” 

The microblading is done with a small hand tool with sterile, disposable needles to implant pigment into the skin. The second appointment, which is included in the package price, will take place no sooner than four weeks of your initial appointment, and no later than 12 weeks after. “This is a touch up appointment and is absolutely imperative to your results,” Kidder says. “Without it, your results will not be optimal, as the service is only half done. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes and it finishes the process.”

Since this new concept can generate many questions for the client, Kidder offers one-on-one consultations for $25. “During a consultation, I will cover every question a guest has, but most importantly I address expectations,” says Kidder. “We will talk shape, color, healing, pre-and post care, etc.”

Since microblading isn’t a permanent tattoo, it does require regular touch ups, fill ins, and a bit of TLC from the client after the session is finished. “For a tattoo,” says Kidder. “A machine is used to implant the pigment deep into the skin, versus microblading, a disposable manual hand tool with sterile one-time use needles is used to deposit pigment into the upper dermal layer of the skin. This superficial placement allows for natural fading with the exfoliation of skin.” 

Depending on skin type, lifestyle, aftercare, and environmental factors, every guest will retain pigment differently, according to Kidder. For example, she says, if you have oily skin, you are a smoker, or you swim, or tan regularly, you will require more touch ups. “Some guests however will require more sessions without any of these factors applying to them,” she adds. “If you want to maintain your brow, you must touch them up. They are designed to fade. Yearly touch ups are typical, and are $250. I offer a ‘perfecting session’ for guests who want to supplement their initial two appointments for $150. If you don’t need a third visit, a yearly touch up is sufficient.”

Kidder has an appreciation for microblading for many reasons, but her favorite is the empowerment the women have when they leave her salon. “Having the power to improve someone’s self-confidence is by far the most rewarding part of microblading,” says Kidder. “At the end of every service when I show my guest their new brows, I feel overwhelmed with the same amount of joy that they do. It’s truly incredible to see someone smile ear to ear because of something you did. Last October, breast cancer awareness month, I had a very eye opening experience. I chose to do a giveaway on social media for breast cancer survivors who lost their brow hair due to treatment. I chose four winners during the month. The time I was able to spend with each survivor was incredible, and it proved to me that microblading is so much more than aesthetic. It’s life changing. To give back a part of someone’s womanhood is truly a humbling experience. To this day, I still think about how thankful I am to be able to add to their stories.”

Kidder says she is thankful for her business growing quicker than she can keep up with, as she is booking clients into August. “I’m happy to see this service is gaining exposure.” says Kidder. Currently, Kidder is with Salon Lofts in Washington Park Plaza, and her microblading sessions are $500. Her first available opening is at the end of July 2020.

Want to look put together but don’t have the time or know-how (or just want a really great gift idea)? We found just the beauty pro for the job.

We all have that forgotten drawer full of cosmetics and skincare we have no idea how to use. What if there was a simplified, curated combo of products that’s easy to use and take on the go? There is, and it’s called Woosh Beauty.

Andrea Abraham, Founder and CEO of Woosh Beauty

“I created Woosh for the women we affectionately call the ‘makeup underachiever.’ She likes makeup, wants to look good, but doesn’t have a lot of time as she is busy doing things that are more important to her, like family, work, fitness…you name it. While some women enjoy watching YouTube makeup tutorials and following the latest trend, many women don’t have the time or patience,” says Andrea Abraham, Founder and CEO of Woosh Beauty. “Rather, they want a natural face or to do a little more with their makeup, like perfect their eyeliner, contour their face, fill in their brow and enjoy a natural eye shadow look without having to watch social media and buy 20 items. Our curated product line offers women easy makeup and tools so they can get their makeup on effortlessly and beautifully and get on with their life!”

With the help of a team of 10 people plus agency help for about five years, Woosh Beauty is making a name for themselves. The inspiration behind starting the business came from Abraham’s passion for makeup and wanting to make high quality products. “I wanted to put everything I loved into one place to make life easier. Makeup palettes are always just eye shadows or just blush and lip gloss and I wanted a palette that had everything for a full face of makeup and to put it in a slim book that I could take with me in my purse easily vs. a bulky makeup bag -so we named it the ‘Fold Out Face,’ as the book folds out to have s generous-sized mirror and 13 full-size pans of makeup,” she says. “This led to developing application tools to help women get their eye makeup on flawless- my favorite is our Corner Brush Eye Stamper where you can just stamp on your eye shadow and line your eyes in three easy steps.”

The name, Woosh, was inspired by the way they want people to do their makeup. “You can do your face in under five minutes with our Fold Out Face and woosh! You’re done,” Abraham says. “You can stamp on your eye shadow and woosh! You’re done!”

There are a variety of products offered through Woosh and they include:

• Fold Out Face Palette: Comes with six shades that match every skin tone. 
• Corner Brush Eye Stamper: “Dual-ended to provide gorgeous eye looks that you can just stamp, blend and line all-in-one brush,” she says.
• Even Eye Stencils: “Made of medical grade silicone to be gentle under eyes to capture eye shadow fall out and line eyes perfectly,” Abraham says. 
• Spin-On Lip Glosses: “We made them in eight perfect nude shades so they provide a pop of color that is never sticky, since we formulated them with shea butter to glide on and moisturize. And they are vegan as well,” she says.
• Flex and Curl Mascara: “Has a bendable wand that helps you coat each and every lash,” Abraham says. 
The Woosh Beauty “Fold Out Face” is designed to be easy to take on the go.

There are also deals that Woosh Beauty has for the holiday season. “On our website,, we have some amazing holiday bundles at a great value, as well as fun stocking stuffers like our Secret Brush Set (four brushes that nest together and fit into your purse easily), or our Mascara Shield(so that you never end up with smudged mascara on your lids),” she says. “We are also doing a fun daily giveaway of these bundles from 12/2-12/8, on our Instagram.”

For the holidays, there are new products that Woosh Beauty are going to be offering. 

“One of my favorites is called The Minimalist, as we all have a friend or family member who is a makeup minimalist and just wants the basics -in this bundle, we sell our Fold Out Face Palette, Mascara and Lip Gloss, so that you can give the perfect gift to the woman in your life seeking simplicity,” Abraham says. “She can throw those three items in her purse, suitcase, makeup bag and be done! Our Bloss Gloss set is an amazing value as well, featuring all eight shades of our Spin-On Lip Gloss at 25 percent discount.”

A product that Abraham suggests are the Spin-On Lip Gloss shades. “They look beautiful over lipstick to provide a little shine and moisture and they are gorgeous alone, providing a nice pop of color. My favorite shade is Glam Peach, but I also like to mix it with Pink Natural too…makes a rich pinky peach,” she says. “Our Fold Out Face is a great gift as it’s a unique gift, since no other palette has coverage and color and people get hooked by the amazing coverage of our concealers and the rich and smooth pigments of our shadows and blushes.”

The Fold Out Face comes in six shades

Woosh Beauty is different from other brands out there. “Woosh is different as we created never before seen items — Most are patented or patent-pending — that exist to help women with makeup, not scare or complicate things. Each of our products come with simple to understand instructions and tutorials,” Abraham says. “Unlike most brands, we launch new products constantly with very little differentiation , which leads to consumer confusion, we curated our line to be simple and understandable.”

Abraham says she loves that the product makes lives easier. “We hope to bring people more time to do what’s important to them and to not stress when they travel or go to the gym, that they forgot one piece of their makeup routine – the Fold Out Face has everything you need in one place so you’ll never forget anything,” she says. “You can focus on what is really important each day and less on makeup.”

What gets Abraham to come back to work every day is the fun she gets to have. “Our work is really fun, so I am always psyched to come back to work each day. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial drive to me and I like solving problems (and there always seems to be a challenge or two with a small business), so I find I’m constantly challenged in that way,” she says. “I also really like the creative side of the business and enjoy developing new ad campaigns and videos for our website.”

If you want to keep up with what’s going on with Woosh Beauty, follow them on FacebookInstagram and you can subscribe to their emails on their website. “We are very choiceful about when and what we email to our subscribers, so I promise you, no spam,” Abraham says.

From eyelashes and waxing to a hydro vacuum facial and detox sauna therapy, learn about the Tri-State’s newest beauty mecca.

Jonae Tye, owner of The Beauty Lounge

Whether you just need a quick pick-me-up last lift or a full-blown spa day, a new local beauty studio offers an array of options.

“The Beauty Lounge is a full-service salon where upscale meets beauty,” says owner Jonae Tye, adding that her idea behind the concept is to offer every client who walks through its doors a seat in any chair that offers nothing but the best service. 

“We want clients to unwind and relax while receiving the highest quality of service and indulge in the most up-to-date products that promise glamorous results,” says Tye.

Hair, skin, and beauty services are available from the Beauty Lounge and range from eyelashes and waxing to microdermabrasion and even a detox sauna therapy.

“The sauna blanket uses radiant heat to reach fat deposits and break them up,” explains Tye. “Sweating then occurs from the sauna blanket helps remove fatty waste from the body.”

Tye says that the most effective way to remove fat and cellulite is through diet and exercise, but the sauna blanket is a way to help fat loss occur faster. 

There are also a variety of eyelash services available from the Beauty Lounge including full sets, mink sets, and hybrid sets. 

One of the more popular services is the lash lift. “The lash lift is an eyelash procedure that curls, lifts, and shapes natural lashes,” says Tye. “Your lashes are extended upward from root to tip, creating a longer lifted appearance that opens up the eyes if you are lucky enough to have a good number of eyelashes that lengthen easily with mascara. If this is the case, it may be that you don’t actually need lash extensions.”

Other services include a hydro vacuum facial and extractions to help clear out pores and brighten your skin. 

In addition to these beauty services, the Beauty Lounge offers classes on microblading and eyelashes. 

The Beauty Lounge is located at 9880 Springfield Pike in Cincinnati. To learn more, visit You can also check out special offers and last-minute availabilities on Facebook and Instagram.

Give the gift of wellness this holiday season with a locally based apothecary that offers herbal and homeopathic products.

What is now Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary is a story that goes back to 2012 and what was known as Phoenix BodyWork & Apothecary, launched by Lindsay Hastings. 

She started her business in 2012 after becoming a licensed massage therapist. Then, in 2018, she received her practitioner certification in BowenWork, a bodywork modality she uses for rehabilitation, pain management for Ehlers Danos and connective tissue disorders, and sports injuries. 

“Since then, I’ve branched out into herbalism and started my formal education with the Science and Art of Herbalism with Rosemary Gladstar,” she explains. 

Now, she’s branching out the brand that was Phoenix BodyWork & Apothecary into Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary. 

“Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary will be launching in 2020, now that we have acquired our property to grow our herbalism and heirloom produce business,” Hastings explains. 

The inspiration for Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary date back to way before 2012. Hasting’s mother is a holistic practitioner now, but as a child Hastings learned, along with her siblings after her sister became seriously ill, how to care for their bodies in a complementary way. 

“We focused on diet, homeopathics, herbs, emotional wellness, and bodywork,” she says. “We found this to be highly beneficial and as people who love education and teaching others it was a natural fit to become a practitioner myself and then an herbalist.”

Hastings gets help running Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary from her family, as they all play a part in creating products, growing the homestead, and offering general support. 

All of the products offered from Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary are made by Hastings and her family. 

“We create personal care products such as tinctures, balms, salves, and flower essence blends; personal adornment in the form of gemstone therapy jewelry and hand-crocheted items; heirloom produce grown without toxic chemicals and using sustainable practices coming in 2020; and cottage foods such as elderberry syrup and fire cider,” Hastings says.

In addition to the new launch coming up for Green Feather Homestead, there is an Herbal Community Supported Agriculture coming in 2020. While there was a soft launch in 2019, Hastings says she plans to grow the CSA in the coming year. 

“An Herbal CSA works similarly to a farm CSA, but instead of a weekly produce share you receive a seasonal herbal share,” explains Hastings. “Green Feather Homestead + Apothecary offers a box every season to support, nourish, and help you transition from one season to the next with good health as the goal.”

Learn about a local makeup artist who provides on-location makeup for brides with special occasions, makeup lessons, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions.

Natalie Ramirez is a freelance makeup artist specializing in traditional makeup, on-location makeup for brides, special occasions, production, and makeup lessons, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions. 

Her story, she says, began about 30 years ago. “Ever since I was a little girl I have always had a love for makeup,” she says. “I got my first makeup palette when I was 6 years old. It was $2.99 from Walgreens. It had the brightest blue and green eye glitter shadows and deepest orange blush. I painted my face over and over again and my little brother’s too.”

As Ramirez grew older, she says that she was always doing makeup for herself and her friends as they turned into teenagers. In high school, she did her makeup before school and applied makeup to her friends in the bathroom between classes. “I loved having a brush in my hand but more than that I liked making other girls feel beautiful,” she says. “Although, let me be clear, as I tell all my students: makeup is simply here to enhance our own natural beauty.” 

Ramirez spent several years in retail before traveling an an artist and climbing the corporate ladder to become an executive in the cosmetic world. Then, last year, she decided that she wanted to go back to her artistry roots and launched Natalie Ramirez Makeup Artist.

Currently, makeup offerings include on-location for bridal and special occasion, makeup lessons for groups and individuals, eyelash extensions, and permanent cosmetic makeup. 

Ramirez says that to her, what makes her business feel unique is the versatility in her artistry skills. She can offer traditional and permanent makeup. “I am essentially a one-stop-shop,” she says. “I pride myself on taking the time to educate my clients, listen to their concerns, and eliminate any worry they may have, all while giving them the perfect look.”

She also wants to put her skills to use as she plans to launch a non-profit artistry organization to provide permanent brows and lash extensions to cancer survivors while also preparing to announce a collaboration project with local photographer Steph Keller Photography.
