Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub by First Botany Cosmeceuticals



I love a good scrub and this Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub by First Botany Cosmeceuticals is a great scrub!  First of all, you should know that I am allergic to coffee but thankfully only when I ingest it!  It's the weirdest thing ever, my eyes swell shut and the skin around my eyes will start to peel, super attractive.  Anyway, I absolutely love the smell of coffee and of all the scrubs I have tried I have yet to try a coffee scrub so I was excited to finally get to test one out!
 This scrub is now a top favorite of mine!  Not only does it smell amazing, like fresh brewed coffee..yum, but it also works amazingly well.  The organic coffee grounds combined with the organic coconut oil and dead sea salt makes for a soothing yet very effective scrub.  After just one use my skin felt super soft and smooth.  I've been using it for a couple weeks now and while I can't say that I've noticed any change in the appearance of my cellulite my skin definitely feels softer and smoother.  We all know that no cream or scrub can get rid of cellulite :( but some products can and do help to soften and smooth the skin so cellulite becomes less noticeable and I can definitely see this scrub making that happen!
Supposedly, you can also you this on your face but since I have very oily skin I have to be very careful about what foes on my face and since this Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub by First Botany Cosmeceuticals also has Shea Butter in it and Shea Butter tends to break me out I didn't try this on my face.  However, I did use it on my neck and decollete and love they way it left my skin gently exfoliated, soft and smooth!

Ultra Probiotic 50 Billion CFU by Life & Food



Probiotics are part of my everyday life.  I take Probiotics to help maintain the good bacteria in my gut which in turns helps me manage my weight, helps keep me from getting sick all the time and it also helps me keep my skin clear and bright.
This Ultra Probiotic 50 Billion CFU by Life & Food is a great option if you are looking for a good Probiotic to take.  Not all Probiotics are created equal and you want to take one that has at least 5 core species and that one contains a blend of 10!
If you are a consumer of a lot of sugar which ends up creating a lot of yeast in your gut and can wreak havoc on your system or if you get sick a lot I would highly recommend that you take a high CFU Probiotic like this Ultra Probiotic 50 Billion CFU by Life & Food.
Once you start introducing more good bacteria into your gut you will notice that your overall health will improve, your skin issues will clear up and you will even sleep better!

100% Pure Rosewater by Joyal Beauty



Rosewater has become a staple in my everyday skincare routine.  I love it and can't be without it.  If you have been wanting to try out Rosewater for yourself I would highly recommend this 100% Pure Rosewater by Joyal Beauty.  This Rosewater is the real deal.  All Rosewater is not created equal and this one is definitely a cut above the rest.  It's steam distilled from the unique Rose Damascena in Bulgaria Rose Valley.  Bulgaria Rose Valley is one of the best Rose areas in the world since it provides just right condition to cultivate this unique rose.  This Rosewater is all natural and organic, it's the first water from the Organic Rose Damascena rose petals.  There is no added artificial rose fragrance, no alcohol and no chemical residues.
I use my Rosewater several times a day depending on how my skin feels.  I like to spray my face, neck and decollete right after I use my toner to help prepare my skin for my moisturizer.  I like to apply my moisturizer while my skin is still damp, I think it helps my moisturizer absorbs easier.  Plus, I get the extra hydration from the Rosewater!  I also like to use it as a makeup setting spray and I will even spritz it on throughout the day as a makeup refresher.
Rosewater will not only hydrate and moisturize your skin but it will also help maintain skin's pH balance, calm and cool the skin and leave it feeling refreshed.  It can also help with hyperpigmentation issues and soften fine lines and wrinkles.  Rosewater is greatly beneficial to ALL skin types!

Alpaca Wool Blend Throw Blanket by Novica



A little bit of luxury all the way from Peru!  This is another beautiful piece from Novica!  Handcrafted by Jorge Priori in Peru and made with an Alpaca Wool blend this piece is not only beautiful to look at but very functional as well.  The blend of the dark chocolate and cream colors are neutral enough to combine with any type of home decor or style.

Derm-A-Renew by Vivant SkinCare



This has fast become one of my favorite skincare products!  This Derm-A-Renew by Vivant SkinCare is basically an all-in-one serum that takes care a multitude of issues.  A serious multi-tasking product that contains ingredients like Niacinamide, Lactic Acid, Kojic Acid, Retinyl Propionate and Oligopeptides.  Together these ingredients help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help stimulate skin cell production of elastin fibers which makes skin more firm and supple, helps improve skin tone and lighten hyperpigmentation and improves skin tone and texture.
I have been using this on my face, neck and decollete for about two weeks as part of my morning and evening skincare routines.  I have already noticed that some of my old blemish spots are becoming less noticeable and the texture of my skin looks and feels more smooth!  I have also noticed that my fine lines seem more plump and smoothed out.  Yay, #KillTheCrow!
I love a product that can treat a wide variety of issues.  I already have a very full skincare routine but I like to mix it up and if I can replace a couple of products with just use one that means I am saving time and money!
I have oily, blemish prone skin and this Derm-A-Renew by Vivant SkinCare works great for my skin type.  It has a gel/serum type texture that is instantly absorbed and wears well under moisturizer and makeup.  It's also very gentle and non-irritating so I think it would work well on any skin type.
I have tried other products by Vivant SkinCare that have all delivered great results.  I am always impressed with their products and they are definitely a brand that I have come to know and trust and one that I would highly recommend.

Eucalyptus Oil by The Essentials Co.



Eucalyptus Oil is something I like to use when I am feeling a bit under the weather.  For me, it's the natural way to fend off bacteria and infections.  This Eucalyptus Oil by The Essentials Co. recently helped me get over a cold that I felt coming on.  I simply placed a few drops in my Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier and Aroma Diffuser everyday for about 4 days.  I also intermittently placed a drop underneath my nose and inhaled the aroma of the Eucalyptus Oil.  I never ended up getting a full blown cold and I know I have the combination of inhaling the Eucalyptus Oil directly and putting it in my Diffuser to thank for it.
Since Eucalyptus Oil has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties it can also be used to treat minor 
 wounds, scrapes, burns and even bug bites and stings.  It can also help relieve pain and keep areas from becoming infected.

Magnetic Screen Door by Premium Choice Products



Obviously this is not a beauty or skincare product but I had to share this cool product with my readers!  I love this Magnetic Screen Door by Premium Choice Products.  Unfortunately we do not have screen door on our back door and come spring and summer our pets are constantly wanting in and out and the bugs are constantly wanting in.  The solution is this Magnetic Mesh Screen Door!  You get the best of both worlds, nice breeze, pets can go in and out as they please and the super strong magnets that are sewn into the seam helps keep it closed.
This is a great quality Magnetic Mesh Screen Door, don't make the same mistake that I did last year and buy the "As Seen On TV" one that they were selling at Walmart!  I ended up taking it back because the Magnets were on the outside of the screen and with the dogs and cats running in and out they inevitability just fell off.
This one is made with great quality materials and again, the Magnets are sewn into the seem which makes ALL the difference!

Organic Rosehip Oil by Skinfood New Zealand



This Organic Rosehip Oil is by Skinfood New Zealand is another keeper!  I recently tested out and reviewed their Organic Coco + Nut Oil and loved it so I was excited to try something else from them and I was equally impressed with this Rosehip Oil.
Unlike other Rosehip Oils that I've tried this one had a rather pleasant smell thanks to the added Sweet Orange Oil.  I've gotten used to oils not smelling the greatest and I don't really mind since they do such awesome things for my skin, however, this Rosehip Oil actually smelling good was a nice change.
100% pure and Organic, rich with powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids this oil absorbs nicely and leaves skin feeling soft and silky with a nice glow.  I like to apply Rosehip Oil to my neck, shoulders and decollete since it helps hydrate and even skin tone it's perfect to use on areas that have seen to much sun over the years.  Rosehip Oil can also help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks so it's also nice to use as an all over body moisturizer.
Love this oil, plus it's perfect for all skin types so my oily skin loves it too!

Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil by First Botany Cosmeceuticals



We use a TON of Lavender Oil in our house.  It's one Essential Oil that we use several times a day.  It's used in our Essential Oil Diffusers and we also use it to put on our Wool Dryer Balls and throw them in the dryer to help make our laundry smell fresh and clean.  Plus, I also like to rub some on before bed to help me relax or if I am just feeling a little stressed and need help chilling out.  Needless to say we go through it pretty fast!
I have tried several Essential Oils from First Botany Cosmeceuticals and I am always happy with the quality of the oils and their smell.  This Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil is no exception.   It has a lovely smell and texture and it also blends well with other Essential Oils.  I also love that it comes in a 4 oz. bottle since we go through it so fast.

Vitamin C Complex Serum by Beautiful U Skincare

Shatterproof Plastic Wine Glasses by Evino



I am really liking the Stemless Wine Glass trend and I love that I can take it one step further and get Shatterproof Plastic Wine Glasses like these by Evino.  Truth is I use my Shatterproof Plastic Wine Glasses for everything, not just wine.  Actually, everyone else in the house uses them too!
These glasses are BPA Free, just the way we all like them and are also great quality.  The plastic is so clear and smooth that they almost look like real glass.  They are perfect to use for outdoor BBQ's and to take camping.
They are also Dishwasher Safe in low temps so you don't have to worry about hand washing them, although, as with most plastic they will probably stay newer looking if you do.

You see how beautiful this Blue and Rose Mandalas Floral Shoulder Bag by Novica is just by looking at pictures of it.  But, what you can't see is the intricate detail and craftsmanship on this bag without seeing it in person.  To see it in real life and to touch and feel it makes you appreciate it all that much more.  It's a beautiful brilliant blue color with intricate embroidery detail and sequins comprised of complimentary vibrant colors.  It's the perfect size, it's even big enough to be used as a small tote bag and it looks great paired with any outfit.  I love this bag, it's almost too pretty for everyday use so it's reserved for special occasions!
