Steph Says ~ Give Thanks

November is upon us. Thanksgiving with my family is very special to me. This is a great time of year to give thanks for all that we have. I also try to remember those less fortunate – here’s a reminder to all that Food Kitchens and Pantries are especially in need right now, so if you are able to make a donation, I encourage you to do so.

A perfect hostess gift for any dinner party can be a great bottle of Prosecco, cozy sweaters, or a special food item.

My favorite things this month:

Choosing the perfect Hostess Gift – I like to bring a bottle of Prosecco for the party and, to spoil my hostess, JAVA Skin Care products to enjoy the day after (we all know how stressful it can be to cook the turkey).

MACY’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City remains my family’s favorite holiday event. For years and years we have attended the parade… the kids are mesmerized by the floats. Truth be told, so am!

We are thrilled to be chosen again this year to participate in the Made on Honor Market Event for Narragansett Beer on Nov 23 & 24th. In an effort to include more businesses, they are moving this year’s event to the beautiful WaterFire Arts Center located at 475 Valley St. in Providence! The space is truly amazing and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Join us for two full days of holiday shopping, meet the people behind some of OUR favorite brands, and of course, we’ll be drinking plenty of beer. Best part? This is a FREE event and it is open to the public.

Our November Spotlight Product is the JAVA Discovery Collection.

The JAVA Discovery Collection is a four-part kit that includes mini sizes of our signature body care products: Body Serum, 1 oz.; Body Scrub, 2 oz.; Body Wash, 2 oz.; Body Bar, 1.5 oz.  

Together, this collection improves appearance of skin tone and fine lines, minimizes moisture loss, brightens and softens skin. This is perfect as an introduction to JAVA Skin Care or as a travel kit – all four products are TSA compliant.

Wishing you all a Healthy, Safe and Happy Thanksgiving



Steph Says: Looking Forward to Spring


Savannah St. Patrick's Day - SavSt.Pat _ Pipes and Drums.jpg

As we shake off winter here in New England and look towards Spring..March is filled with the optimism of new beginnings.

Some of my favorite things about March are:

St Patrick’s Day in Newport Rhode Island- we have the best parade ever and it has been named 1 of the Top 5 parades in the USA.  I have been attending this parade since I was a little girl and now I get to bring my girls. I’ll see you on Thames Street, March 16th Rain or Shine.

Spring Forward and set the clocks ahead…I know it can be tough the first few days after we switch the clocks but I do LOVE the extra daylight. The snow starts to melt and the crocuses start to peep out of the ground.  I have to agree with the New York Times article..let’s just skip all the confusion and stop the switching of the clocks. What do you think?

Full Moon in March is also a very auspicious time. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this full moon reaches its peak on the same day as the Spring Equinox, which also occurs on Mar. 20. The last time these two events coincided this closely was back in the year 2000, and the last time they occurred on the same date was back in 1981. So take some time to look up in the sky and enjoy.

I am also super excited about our March Spot Light Product…JAVA Illuminating Eye Serum is packed with antioxidants to gently correct the delicate skin around the eyes. We’ve blended some of nature’s most beautiful oils together to restore skin’s elasticity, reduce the look of dark circles and wrinkles, prevent moisture loss and protect skin from free-radical damage.

We are offering a FREE 5ml sample of Eye Serum with every purchase on our website of $50.00 or more. No code needed it will be included in your order. And as always because it is our spotlight product the eye serum is on sale o=for 10% off. Check it out at

Thanksgiving~ Planes,Cooking & Cold Weather…Oh my.

JAVA Tribe members are already posting their (or their visiting, inbound relatives) Thanksgiving travel pictures. This will only pick up in the coming days so we thought to touch upon some overlooked situations during the holiday that will take more of a toll than normal on your skin, and so you can prepare, or tell those visiting you to prepare, for the next 10 days.

Air travel – probably the number 1 assault on skin. The longer the flight, the worse. Dry air, confined quarters, dehydration from little being offered in drink during the flight – we assume most of us are flying economy!

airplane hell

JAVA solutions for Air Travel – before and after your flight: JAVA Eye Serum, JAVA Body Serum, JAVA Double-Body Shot Serum, JAVA Lip Balm.

Thanksgiving Day Cooking – the heat of the kitchen with the sudden cold of needing to go outside to throw out trash, then the food cooking and releasing microscopic oils, dust, and other particles into the air and onto the skin, and an occasional burnt finger, the price of a fabulous dinner is paid for by your skin!


Cold Weather – we have seen many posts from our Tribe who live in northern parts of the USA. Snow already from Colorado to Chicago to Washington DC!!! Snow also means dry air and cold temperature, each doing its part to crack skin and to make itchy, flaky skin. So if you live there full time, or are visiting, get prepared now!

A walk

Our solution to all of these Holiday Issues…JAVA Skin Care of course. Let our products sooth and comfort you all season long.

Shop with Free Shipping beginning November 25th!

MACY’s Day Parade in New York City remains my family’s favorite holiday event. For years and years we have attended the parade…the kids are memorized by the floats. Truth be told so am!

When is the last time you gave your body a really good scrubbing?

We recommend using JAVA Body Scrub everywhere from the neck down about twice a week.

Here are a few reasons why:

Instantly makes skin look more youthful and healthy
Helps to unclog pores, remove excess oil and helps prevent ingrown hairs
Helps moisturizers penetrate deeply instead of getting stuck in dead skin         buildup
Makes for a more even application of self tanner
Boost circulation and cell turn-over
Reduces the look of dark spots and other skin imperfections
It feels great!

Never forget this important step to keep your skin healthy and glowing.



Traveling to New England this week?

Make sure you bring your wellies, a good book, and some JAVA.

We’re expecting tropical storm José which will result in high surf, winds, and heavy rain along the shores of JAVA Skin Care HQ – our hometown of Narragansett, Rhode Island.
It’s a great excuse to do absolutely nothing! Sit back, brew a pot of coffee, and simply take care of yourself.


And, did you know:

World’s Best Surf Towns (photo #16)

Beauty Heroes Superhero Selection of the Month


June 2015 | Expert Selection

Double-Shot Body Serum

spa_heroes_delivery spa_heroes_delivery_2

“…on a mission to change the way you look at skin care and hair care and sun care and any other beauty product that touches your skin.”


Beauty Heroes offers a monthly beauty box subscription to first-run, super fresh products. All  selections are completely free and clear of ingredients that could be hazardous to your health. Instead, each one is packed with natural Superpower ingredients that activate your body’s very own beauty superpowers like cell regeneration, moisture retention, and the glow of good health.

Sarita Coren of says:

“Did you know that over 30 (yes, THIRTY!) experts evaluate the Beauty Heroes products before they’re hand-picked for the monthly delivery? That’s not all. I appreciate the FULL SIZED products that focus on ONE BRAND each month for only $39/month, and the company’s mission to USE LESS heart emoticon LOVE MORE. Plus, you get exclusive previews of products before they’re even launched–like I did with Laurel WPO’s amazing eye serum.

This is the most tasteful selection of products that I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing to date! So much so, that I’ve cancelled most of my other subscription boxes (tiny samples are SO not happening any more). Examples of previous boxes include expert selections from Laurel Whole Plant Organics, Bottega Organica, red flower,Mio Skincare, Spa Technologies, and now June’s box with JAVA Skin Care.

It certainly helps that Jeannie Jarnot is not only knowledgeable and discerning when it comes to clean ingredients and heroic spa-quality product picks, she’s also incredibly kind, generous, and likes to be called JJ (like my son smile emoticon ). What more could you ask for?

Oh! How about that they treat the companies that they work with fairly too? Yep. Lots of sample boxes request difficult to fulfill orders from small businesses and never pay those companies a dime for all their work and effort. Not so, Beauty Heroes. They PAY every specialized brand that they work with. I’d say that takes a lot of integrity.

Guess what? I’ve got a special code for you to save $10 off your first month’s box. Wait til you see what’s in store for you in the next few months! I’m jumping off the edge of my seat!! Hope you enjoy, my friends and family. I’m telling you, it is worth it, and the reason why I’m excited to partner with Beauty Heroes as their inaugural brand ambassador.”

Thank you Beauty Heroes


Love this…


Did you know that JAVA Skin Care is filled with green coffee and the benefits to the skin are wonderful…Reduces Effect Of Free Radicals:

Chlorogenic Acid present in green coffee beans can reduce the effects of free radicals in our body up to 10 times than regular green tea. As the beans are not roasted, there are some other antioxidative agents from the polyphenol family, Ferulic Acid, etc., which decelerate the ageing procedure and give us youthful skin.




Enhances Immune System:

These coffee beans are highly effective in enhancing our immune system. Due to the occurrence of potent free-radical busters, they can help our body eliminate all types of toxic and damaging elements. Consequently, we can get rid of dull and acne-prone skin.



Helps Slowing Down The Appearance Of Signs Of Ageing:

Green coffee beans are also known to retain high levels of volatile materials as they do not need to undergo the roasting procedure. Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Theophylline, Epigallocatechin Gallate, etc. are some of such ingredients that can help us maintain our skin health and avert the appearance of wrinkles.



Helps Moisturize Skin:

Apart from the antioxidant agents, green coffee beans are also rich in fatty acids and esters including Arahidic Acid, Linoleic Acid and Oleic Acid, which nourishes and moisturizes our skin to stop sagging, discoloration and other severe damage
