Certified Organic & 100% Natural Seaweed Powder by InstaNatural-Review



Two thumbs up for another great product from InstaNatural!  InstaNatural sent me their Certified Organic & 100% Natural Seaweed Powder a few weeks ago to review for them and it's been fun making up different recipes for masks & body scrubs.  Seaweed is excellent at improving skin tone & texture and it's also perfect for drawing out all the impurities from your skin.
Here are two of my favorite recipes that will not only detoxify your skin but leave it feeling super soft, clean and smooth!

Detox Scrub
3 tbsp Certified Organic & 100% Natural Seaweed Powder by InstaNatural
1/4 cup sea salt
1/4 cup olive oil
Drop of essential oil of choice (I used Tea Tree Oil for the full Detox effect)

This scrub also works great as a cellulite scrub.  Massage scrub into skin before showering then rinse off.


Seaweed Detox & Exfoliating Mask
1 tbs Certified Organic & 100% Natural Seaweed Powder by InstaNatural
1/2 tbsp Aloe Vera gel
1 tbsp of honey

This mask will cleanse, detoxify & exfoliate your skin and will help clear up any blemishes, lighten dark spots and even help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  Leave on until for 10-20 min. then rinse off.


I have tried A LOT of InstaNatural products and they have all been fantastic so make sure you check out the other reviews on my blog.  (You can use the search feature and search for InstaNatural to find them).
For more information and to purchase the Certified Organic & 100% Natural Seaweed Powder by InstaNatural go to InstaNatural.com.  You can also purchase it on Amazon.com as well.

Cellulite Cream by InstaNatural-Review



If you follow my blog then you already know that I love all things InstaNatural.  I have been lucky enough to try a lot of their products and I have yet to be disappointed! (You can use the search feature on my blog to find all my InstaNatural product reviews).  This Cellulite Cream that InstaNatural sent me to test out & review for them is another great product that I can add to the list.  (My teenage daughter keeps stealing it from me, like she needs to worry about Cellulite at her age!)
The Cellulite Cream by InstaNatural really helps firm the skin and make the appearance of Cellulite less noticeable.  It also contains Retinol which helps even out skin tone and smooth the skin and making it more supple,which of course also helps make the Cellulite less noticeable.

The really great thing about InstaNatural is that they offer a Lifetime Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee, no matter where you buy their products.  If you are not satisfied, simply contact them and get a full refund!  So, there really is no reason not to try it out!  Go to InstaNatural.com for more information on this Cellulite Cream and all their other products.  You can also purchase it on Amazon.com.

The Perfect Probiotic by Hyperbiotics-Review



Probiotics are something that I take on a regular basis because of all the health benefits I get.  Not only are Probiotics necessary for gut health & wellness but they can also help improve moods & energy levels.  Did you know that approximately 80% of your immune system is in your gut?  I wasn't even aware it was that high!  Anytime I get sick my doctor always tells me to make sure that I am taking Probiotics.  That's why I decided I would just start taking them on a more regular basis.  I do think it helps tremendously.  We had a nasty little cold/flu thing going around our office and I was sick almost half the time everybody else was.  I really think taking the Perfect Probiotic that Hyperbiotics sent me to test out and review for them helped make that possible!  I would highly recommend this supplement.

You can get more info and purchase the Perfect Probiotic by Hyperbiotics on Amazon.com!

#MaskMonday-Ole Henriksen Power Peel


Happy #MaskMonday!  I have to tell you, I'm pretty excited about my pick for this week!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Ole Henriksen Power Peel!  It's called a peel but it's basically 3 masks.  This three step treatment is designed to enhance and renew the skin.  The 1st step is an Almond polish that emulates the benefits of a microdermabrasion with oat kernel flour, bamboo stem powder, honey, orange peel and almond to refine skin to smooth perfection.  Step 2 is a Lemon strip emulates the benefits of an acid peel with lactic and glycolic acid, orange and lemon extracts to reveal a refreshed and refined complexion.  Step 3 is a Chamomile comfort that is put directly over Step 2 and soothes the skin after the more active treatment steps with bisabolol, borage seed and evening primrose oils.  You only need to do this once a week and I promise you will see an improvement in your skin after just one use!  It's that good!  It helps with everything from fading hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone to reducing the appearance of fine lines!  Yes, after just one use!! OMG, it's fabulous!
You can buy the kit above for $95.00 and it will give you about 11 treatments.  Or you can buy the kit below that comes in individual packets for $45.00 and will give you 6 treatments.  If you want to try it out for yourself I recommend getting the kit with the individual packets (these are also perfect for traveling!) and you can get those at Dermstore.com.

Jet Lag & Sleep Aid by Ching Chi-Review



If you follow my blog then you already know that I have some major issues when it comes to sleeping which means I am always lacking in the sleep department.  The only thing that really works is a prescription that I get from my doctor which I only take if I have gone a few days without sleep.  Not the most ideal plan but it is what it is!  However, I am always on the hunt for supplements that claim to help with sleeping issues and some of them do work but usually only for a short period of time.  
Ching Chi sent me some of their Jet Lag & Sleep Aid to test out and review for them.  Jet Lag & Sleep Aid is made up of a blend of natural ingredients traditionally used in ancient cultures.  The special formulation is supposed to harmonize with your body to help with jet lag and sleep issues.
I have to say I was really impressed with the Jet Lag & Sleep Aid!  It really did help me fall asleep faster and stay asleep a lot longer than I normally do.  I am continuing to use it as needed and it has even helped me cut down on the number of times I would normally need to use my prescription sleep aid.  So, this product is a win for me!!  (BTW, it does smell a little strange but the benefits are well worth it!).

Go to Amazon.com for more information & to purchase the Jet Lag & Sleep Aid.

Azure Naturals Ultimate Lime Infused Organic Retinol Moisturizer with 2.5% Retinol-Review



Retinol is one of my favorite skincare ingredients so I was more than a little excited when Azure Naturals sent me their new Ultimate Lime Infused Organic Retinol Moisturizer with 2.5% Retinol to test out and review for them.  Retinol is one of the most effective ingredients for fighting off fine lines & wrinkles and it also works extremely well at improving hyperpigmentation, skin texture and it even increases skin hydration levels.  All that in one little ingredient and at 2.5% you don't even need a prescription to enjoy the benefits!
