    Snow Mushroom Water Serum

    Do you remember last summer when I shared a bunch of products from newly launched skincare company, Volition? The brand has so many good products and they’re all great for your skin and nice, clean products. They recently sent me their new product – the Snow Mushroom Water Serum. Snow mushrooms can hold up to 500 times their weight in water which is why this key ingredient in this serum helps hydrate your skin and keep that hydration in. The product is described as: “This cocktail of nutrient-rich ingredients leaves thirsty skin looking dewy, radiant, and healthy. Snow Mushrooms, nature’s sponges, can hold nearly 500 times their weight in water, delivering…

    Coola Dry Oil Mist

    I’m fairly new to self-tanners but since I don’t spend as much time at the beach and by pools as I did when I was younger, I really wanted to experiment with them so that my legs aren’t always pasty. Before the Coola Dry Oil Mist, the closest thing to self-tanner that I had used regularly is Jergen’s Natural Glow Moisturizer. The main things I wanted were something that was easy to use and buildable. I heard a few people talk about the Coola Dry Oil Mist on social media and it sounded great because instead of it being a thick mousse it’s just a fine mist, dries quickly, and…

    Softsoap – Earth Blends

    I love trying new soap and bath products so when I was sent some products from Softsoap’s new Earth Blends line I was excited to try them out! The Earth Blends line is new to the Softsoap brand. The products are dye-free, paraben free, and are made from biodegradable cleaning ingredients. I love knowing that the products I’m using are safe and gentle on the environment. I was sent the body wash in the scent “Pomegranate & Plum”, hand soap in “Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber”, and two bar soaps in “Coconut Fig”. The soaps are so fragrant and moisturizing. The body wash has a thin, liquidy consistency and does provide…

    #Iconic VoxBox

    A few weeks ago I was surprised with a Influenster VoxBox – the #Iconic VoxBox. Usually Influenster emails ahead of time to let me know I would be receiving a box and the app has it set up for me to check in my box once I receive it. I didn’t know if it was a mistake or if it was a surprise gift, but I did a quick search on Instagram using the #iconicvoxbox hashtag and found a bunch of people who had gotten it without knowing ahead of time as well. Within a few hours after receiving it the app was updated and I was able to check…

    Live Clean Body Wash & Lotion

    One of the great things about blogging is that I get to try out so many different things. Whether I am sent products or I’m off buying them myself because I’ve heard so much about them – it’s always fun for me to try out all different kinds of products and I, of course, like to report back my thoughts to all of you. Lately, I’ve been using a body wash and lotion from Live Clean that were sent to me. I got the Bali Body Wash and the Argan Oil Body Lotion. What’s great about Live Clean is that they produce eco-friendly, gentle products with naturally based ingredients. And…

    Aveeno 60-Second In-Shower Facial

    Happy Saturday! Yesterday was my first day back to work after two snow days and I felt all sorts of out of it. Being back at work was fine, but I just wasn’t in the best mood all day and for no particular reason. I guess it was just one of those days, but today’s a new day and hopefully it’s a good one! If you have been following me for a while, then you know I love skincare and I’m always trying to improve my skin and complexion. I don’t remember where I first heard about this Aveeno 60-Second In-Shower Facial – it may have been through another blogger, but I…

    L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum

    I’ve mentioned this a few times in posts the past few weeks, but my skin has been crazy since November/December. Every time I think it’s finally under control, another blemish crops up. It’s mostly on my cheeks and it’s really annoying because as soon as my breakout on one cheek is gone, a pimple pops up on the other cheek! Anyway, as my body figures itself out, I’ve just been trying to take the best care of my skin as I can. One item I’ve been using the past few weeks is the L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum. L’oreal describes the serum as: “L’Oréal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum contains…

    Desert Harvest – Aloe Vera Gele

    Aloe Vera is great for your skin and while many of us know it as a a skin soother after sunburn, but it can be used regularly for skin healing and as an anti-inflammatory. I’m always up for trying out skin products so when I received this Aloe Vera Gele from Desert Harvest I wanted to try it out. This Aloe Vera Gele is made from 80% pure aloe vera concentrate. Desert Harvest describes it as:  “a soothing, cold-processed gel formulated to relieve minor skin irritations. It contains all of the anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, and healing properties of the aloe plant in a high concentration. Desert Harvest Gelé contains the most therapeutic…

    NaturaBrasil Grand Opening

    I was fortunate enough to be invited to the opening of NaturaBrasil‘s first store in New Jersey and second flagship store in the US on Tuesday night. First, a little about the brand! “Natura is a billion-dollar natural and vegan beauty/grooming brand that works directly with community co-ops in the Amazon rainforest (educating these communities on best practices and business acumen) to sustainably source exotic Amazonian ingredients. Through this program and others NaturaBrasil has saved nearly 635,000 acres of rainforest. Natura is the first publicly traded company to be a B-corp and recently won a United Nations Champions of The Earth Award – not to mention, they just purchased The Body Shop.” The new store…

    Estée Lauder – Perfectly Clean

    Last year I stopped used makeup remover wipes (except for when I’m traveling – for convenience). I had read a lot about how those wipes can dry out your skin so I switched to oils and liquid removers. It’s better for your skin, plus it makes me feel like I’m helping the environment by not filling my garbage with wipes. Anyway, the two oils I’ve been using the past year are the Clinique’s Take the Day Off  and Mac’s Cleanse Off Oil. I wanted to switch things up when I was restocking recently and picked up the Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Triple Action/Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover.  First, let’s see how the product is…
