Eucalyptus Essential Oil by UpNature



Eucalyptus Essential Oil is one of my favorite Essential Oils!  It's a very soothing and therapeutic Essential Oil.  I love to make my own Essential Oil blends and I love blending Eucalyptus, Lavender and Cedarwood to make a special blend that helps me relax and sleep better.  The key is to use quality Essential Oils like this Eucalyptus Essential Oil by UpNature.
This Eucalyptus Essential Oil by UpNature is 100% pure, natural and therapeutic grade.  It has an intense yet soothing Eucalyptus scent which means a little of this oil can go a long way.
I also like to use Eucalyptus Essential Oil when I have a cold or just feeling a little under the weather.  I place a small drop of oil just under my nose and inhale.  Not only does it help clear my sinuses but since it's such a soothing oil it also promotes a sense of well being.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil is also a great oil to use in cleaning.  It's a natural disinfectant and deodorizer so it's a great germ killer!  Just put about 5 drops into a spray bottle and add some hot water, you can also add Tea Tree Oil as well for a super disinfectant spray!
Using Essential Oils in lieu of medications and harmful cleaning chemicals is a much better option for you, your family and the environment!

You can find this great quality Eucalyptus Essential Oil by UpNature over on Amazon.com...

Cobalt Blue Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles by 2PM Essentials



I am bit of a Essential Oils nut and I am constantly creating my own blends and putting them in Roll On Bottles.  However, these Cobalt Blue Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles by 2PM Essentials take my creations to a whole new level.  
These Cobalt Blue Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles by 2PM Essentials have metal roller balls which make a world of difference,  The ones I usually get have plastic balls which can sometimes leak.  With the metal balls there is no leakage!  Plus, how beautiful is the Cobalt Blue color?!  I also like the aluminum cap, it just gives that added touch.
I don't sell any of my Essential Oil blends I just use them for myself, friends and family.  However, if I did these Cobalt Blue Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles would be the way to go!  They just have a touch of elegance about them that would add value to any Essential Oil or Perfume blend.  Plus, the 
Cobalt Blue is a deep rich that helps prevent light damage to sensitive oils.
If you are an Essential Oil lover like me and you like to create your blends I would highly recommend these beautiful Cobalt Blue Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles by 2PM Essentials!

SkinRise Bionic Tonic by Exuviance


Here is the other amazing Exuviance product that I have been testing out!  It's the SkinRise Bionic Tonic...I know, it even sounds cool!
Basically, just by using one smooth applicator pad over entire face as part of your morning skincare routine you are helping to renew, smooth and firm your skin.  Genius!
This SkinRise Bionic Tonic by Exuviance is made with some potent antioxidant and anti-aging ingredients like Gluconolactone, Glucoheptonolactone and Lactobionic Acid, Pro-Vitamins A, C and E, Green Tea and it's also infused with Cucumber and Eucalyptus.  All these ingredients work synergystically to help tone, protect stressed skin from free radicals, moisturize and refine your skin.  
I noticed that after just one week of use my skin just looks better overall.  It has better clarity, feels more smooth and looks more hydrated.
I recommend using in your morning skincare routine.  I like using one SkinRise Bionic Tonic applicator pad over entire face, down my neck and on my decollete.  Sometimes, when I feel like the pad still has some product left in it I also swipe it over the backs of my hands.  I usually give the product at least 3 minutes to soak into my skin before I apply my daily moisturizer.  I think taking a few minutes between each product layer really allows the skin to absorb each individual product which allows each product to work it's magic!  Plus, this SkinRise Bionic Tonic is so hydrating you almost don't even need a moisturizer.
If you are looking for clarified, hydrated and radiant skin then the SkinRise Bionic Tonic by Exuviance is for you!  Couple this with their Pigment Lifting Masque and your on your way to renewed, even toned and younger looking skin.


The SkinRise Bionic Tonic by Exuviance $45.00 but use your Ebates account to get 7.5% Cash Back!

Pigment Lifting Masque by Exuviance


If you follow my blog then you already know my love of all things by Exuviance so I'm a little biased but for good reason!  I have tested out several of their products and they always give me great results!  I've had the pleasure of testing out two more Exuviance products over the last several weeks and this Pigment Lifting Masque is one of them.  Combine my love of masks and it's a match made in heaven!  Since I am someone that struggles with hyperpigmentation issues this mask is right up my alley.
This Pigment Lifting Masque by Exuviance is a lift-off sheet mask that contains concentrated brighteners to diminish the look of dark spots for a more even skin tone.  It leaves skin looking luminous and feeling super hydrated.
How does it work you ask?  It contains their patented NeoGlucosamine® which exfoliates skin to help break up existing dark spots, creating more even pigment and skin tone.  It also contains one of my favorite skincare ingredients, Vitamin C, which amplifies the brightening process by helping diminish the look of dark spots that are already there and then also preventing new ones from forming.  The hydrating serum it contains is what gives skin that luminous look and leaves it feeling ultra moisturized.
For best results, I recommend using this Pigment Lifting Masque by Exuviance once or twice a week, right before bed and leave it on for about 15 minutes.  Then remove the mask and massage the leftover serum into skin and follow it up with your usual moisturizer.  By using it right before bed it gives your skin the chance to continue to put all those potent ingredients to work during the night when your skin naturally repairs itself and allows you to wake up with gorgeous skin!
Of course, I also recommend that you use an SPF during the day to help keep spots at bay.  You should already be applying an SPF daily but if you don't already then definitely use one after using these masks.  You don't want to undo all the work the Pigment Lifting Masque by Exuviance just did!
I have several stubborn Melasma spots and I have tried to lighten them up using countless products so when I noticed that those spots were finally starting to lighten up after using just 2 masks I was beyond happy!
Great product and great results!  It's yet another Exuviance product that I am happy to recommend!

The Pigment Lifting Masque by Exuviance retails for $65.00 and is worth every penny but you can get 7.5% Cash Back when you use your Ebates account!  Make sure you check out Exuviance.com for more detailed information on this and other products.

Pilates Ring by Go Sport-it Fitness



I love Pilates.  I think it's one of best workouts you can do, especially for women.  While this new Pilates Ring that I have been testing isn't going to give your the results that a full Pilates session will it does give thighs and arms a great little workout!
This Pilates Ring by Go Sport-it Fitness kind of reminds me of the old "Thigh Master" but only because it gives my thighs a similar workout.  The Pilates Ring goes above and beyond what a "Thigh Master" could ever do.  It's a strong but flexible 14 inch ring with foam-padded handles and it is made using ecological materials and processes.  It's well made, durable and built to last!
The fact that it's smaller in size and lightweight makes it perfect to take with you when you travel.  Now you can workout no matter where you are!  Even just 15 minutes a day worth of reps has helped me strengthen and tone my muscles.  It's an easy and inexpensive way to help you on your way to your new and better self!  #NewYearNewYou

Pro EM-1 Probiotic by TeraGanix, Inc.



One thing I try and take on a regular basis is a quality Probiotic like this one by TeraGanix, Inc.  Especially during flu season and this time of year since I tend to get just about every bug that comes along.
This Pro EM-1 Probiotic by TeraGanix, Inc. is a quality fermented liquid Probiotic made with organic ingredients and naturally-occurring microorganisms.  They never include freeze dried microbes and only live viable and active microbes to ensure the best quality.  It also contains all active metabolites produced during fermentation.  These metabolites include enzymes, co-enzymes, amino acids, organic acids, bacteriocins, and a variety of other bioavailable micronutrients.  This is by far one of the best Probiotics I've tried to date.
I like to add this Probiotic to my morning smoothie along with a couple other supplements.  For me, it's the perfect way to ensure I'm getting everything I need first thing in the morning so I'm good to go for the rest of the day.
Adding a quality Probiotic to your diet can help with more than just your immune system!  Probiotics also help support a healthy regular digestive system, weight loss and improves absorption of nutrients among other benefits.
Do you take Probiotics on a regular basis?  I highly recommend it, especially one in a liquid form like this one.  I don't think I would survive the flu season without it!  For more detailed information about this Pro EM-1 Probiotic by TeraGanix, Inc. please visit proem1.com.

Precision Body Check Bathroom Scale by EatSmart



Scales have come a long way in the last ten years!  Please tell me you do not still have the old school scale that when you step on it the little needle goes up?  If you do, it's definitely time to upgrade!
This Precision Body Check Bathroom Scale by EatSmart is a great option if you are looking to upgrade your scale.  Not only is this a great quality scale but it also allows you to measure your approximate BMI, % body fat, % body muscle, % body water, bone mass and estimated caloric intake.  How's that for an upgrade from your old school scale?
Having a scale that can help you track your BMI, % body fat, % body muscle, % body water, bone mass is a great tool.  It can be especially helpful if you are trying to loose weight.  I don't think it's helpful to weigh yourself everyday, your weight can fluctuate by a few pounds depending on a lot of factors.  To make sure you are tracking your weight correctly I recommend that you weigh yourself  just once a week and at the same time ever day.  Preferably, you should weigh yourself first thing in the morning before you have had anything to eat or drink to get the most accurate reading.
A scale like this is a small investment to make that can benefit your overall health!

Retinol 2.5% Serum by Applejack Life



At my age (42) Retinol is pretty much a staple in my everyday skincare routine.  Retinol just does amazing things for the skin.  Basically, Retinol encourages skin cells to turnover at a faster rate than they would on their own.  So, that means newer, fresher and healthier skin.  Using a Retinol Serum like this Retinol Serum by Applejack Life, especially because it contains 2.5% Retinol means you can maintain a more youthful and glowing complexion.
I only use my Retinol Serum as part of my evening skincare routine.  Since Retinol encourages faster cell turnover that means you have new skin and you don't want to be exposing that new skin to the Sun.  So, not only do I only use Retinol at night I also make sure to use a high SPF during the day to protect my fresh, new skin!
This Retinol 2.5% Serum by Applejack Life helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles, helps improve skin texture and also helps with hyperpigmentation issues which means you will also see a more even skin tone!  It also contains other anti-aging & antioxidant ingredients that help protect skin from free radicals and that can help regenerate and restore skin.
Overall, this is a great Retinol Serum that delivers great results and one that I would recommend to my readers!

Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Cream by Perfective Ceuticals



Next to face masks Eye Creams are my other big obsession.  I love it when I apply a good quality Eye Cream and the skin around my eyes looks and feels hydrated.  There is nothing that I hate more (ok, almost nothing) than a dehydrated feeling under eye area!  In fact, I tend to use an Eye Balm in the evening to ensure hydrated eyes all night long!
This Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Cream by Perfective Ceuticals really has everything I love and look for in an Eye Cream.  The texture is a little thicker than a normal Eye Cream, which I love because to me that means extra hydration!  And thankfully, that's exactly what this Eye Cream does, it provides extra hydration.  Just half a pump provides the entire Eye area with rich and creamy hydration.  It also reduces any puffiness and smooths out fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet!  #KillTheCrow #BestEyeCream!
The high quality ingredients like Epidermal Growth Factor, Matrixyl, Algae Extract, Argireline and Retinol ensure a younger looking Eye area.  With diminished fine lines and wrinkles, increased Collagen production and suppleness there is really nothing more than you can ask for!
I really love this Eye Cream and if you are as obsessed with Eye Creams even half as much as I am then I highly recommend you try this one out for yourself!
