Natural cold remedies and tips!

11 Oct

I am sick right now, and this goodie popped into my email today.  I haven’t heard of any of these products before,  but I am really intrigued!

All this info came from http://www.thedetoxmarket.com/

KUSMI Ginger Lemon Tea
Our LA store manager Katherine relies on ginger for all her healing needs. And lemon is uber-cleansing!

Florame Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Eucalyptus oil is known for its powerful pulmonary decongestant properties. To help fight chest infections and colds, blend 3 drops with 5ml of an organic jojoba oil and massage into your chest twice daily.

Urban Moonshine Immune Tonic
Strengthen your immune system with these herbal magicians: astragalus, eleuthero, maitake, red reishi & ginger!

CleanWell All-Natural Hand Sanitizer
You can cough into your elbow and avoid public door knobs at all costs, but why not go the extra mile by eliminating germs on the go?

Virus Zero Portable Air Sterilizer
Sterilize the air in your bedroom, office or car (it comes with an adapter)! Bacteria, viruses, allergens, mold, smoke and volatile organic compounds don’t stand a chance against this sterilizer.

HEALTH TIP 
Now is the time to consume even more antioxidants and nutrients — so your body stays well nourished and happy.
Try incorporating a smoothie every day packed with 1 cup spinach, 1 cup kale,  1 cup blueberries, 1 banana, 1 cup almond/coconut milk and 2 tbsp ground flax seeds.

New Fave and Dupe: Suave Naturals Body Wash! Bath and Body Works Dupe!

17 Sep

I’m so crazy about this scent right now!!  It’s from the Suave Naturals line.  This retails for under $4.00 USD.

The scent reminds me of the Sweet Pea from Bath and Body Works.  I only used the BBW lotion, not the wash so I can’t compare its staying power.  However, the scents are very similar out of the bottle.  Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Shower Gel is $11.00 USD.

It smells so fresh and summery!  It will probably be my last summer scent I use for the Season. Sort of sad because I love summer so much, but it’s also fun to try new products.

Why I like it:

1) fragrance is so nice

2) it lathers really well

3) it’s very inexpensive

4) it can be used for shaving

Have you used any Suave bath products?  What did you think?

7 May

Oh Beautyblender, you have such a silly name !  But seriously dear Lovelies, Beautyblender came on the market and created a craze!  There are so many tutorials and reviews for this product it made our head spin, and it made us way curious.

What the heck is a Beautyblender? – in a nutshell, it’s a funny, sort of egg shaped beauty sponge.  The kind of sponge you use to put on your foundation.  What?  You don’t use a sponge to put on your foundation.  Yeah, neither did we…and then I tried it and Kassi said “I NEED THIS”.  Go get you some!
