Everyone needs a good nights rest, especially this mommy of a three year old daughter that finds every excuse under the sun (or moon) not to go to bed. I had the opportunity to review Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask that comes with ear plugs and a convenient carry case.

 The eye mask is a solid design, comfortable to wear and does not fall off when sleeping. Unlike a typical eye mask this one contours to your head not letting a single ray of light come in and the head strap is adjustable. The added bonus of the ear plugs were perfect since my husband tends to snore quite a bit during the night. I’m a light sleeper and the combination of the sleep mask and ear plugs, I finally had a great, full night of sleep last night.

Here’s some additional instructions to ensure that you get the most out of the sleep mask:

    • Put the mask over your eyes and ensure it feels comfortable
    • Adjust the strap so that the mask is firm and won’t slide around, but not too tight that it’s uncomfortable
    • Store the mask in a dry place when not in use
    • Hand-wash the mask if it gets dirty and lay it flat to dry, to maintain its shape and prevent deterioration
    • Do not insert earplugs deep in to the ear canal, improper fitting can result in injury or hearing loss
    • Always keep the earplugs away from infants and small children as they are potentially a choking hazard or may interfere with breathing
    • Do not use earplugs when operating machinery or dangerous equipment

Thank you to our friends at Bedtime Bliss for allowing us to review your sleep mask and ear plugs. I have truly enjoyed using them the past few nights and they now have a permanent spot on my night stand.

If you didn’t know, I LOVE Cupcakes! And what better review to have is from the Marshmallow Soap Company where I had the opportunity to test and review some of their great health and beauty products – including super cute “cupcake” soaps.

Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 4.58.24 PM

I received an overflowing box of goodies from our friends at Marshmallow Soap Company and we (my daughter and I) had so much fun trying out the different lathering soaps and lotions. Some of the items I received include: Black Amber & Lavender soap, Pink Rock Candy soap, Candy Land and Cotton Candy cupcake soap, Blueberry Delight cupcake soap, Kitchen Coffee 4 pack soap, plus Avocado & Shea Butter lotion. They were very generous by upgrading some my samples to full sized items since my online shop and blog are all about cupcakes 😉

The Marshmallow Soap Company has some pretty cute soaps that are Eco Friendly, Cruelty Free, and Vegetable Derived. They contain no paraben, phthalate and nitro musk.

{FROM THE COMPANY} Are you tired of the same old soap? Are you looking for a unique product to offer your clients, customers, or guests? Marshmallow Soap Co. has transformed soap from a necessary, if boring, product, into something that is fun as well as functional. Our floating marshmallow soaps offer the indulgence of a marshmallow without the calories! These adorable floating soaps dry after use, allowing you to enjoy them again and again.

Natural Soap is very different than a detergent based soap you purchase at a local grocery store. Natural soap is rich in natural butter and oils which need to naturally absorb into the skin and dry to feel the real softness they lend to the skin. Everybody is different so we do encourage you to allow your skin to dry completely before making an assessment on the marshmallow; once these dry your skin turns as soft as silk. It is a Truly Unique Experience!

My favorite item out of the products are the “cupcakes”! The Cotton Candy was my daughter’s favorite. It was more than just pink fluff, it has vanilla notes mixed with hints of cherry. These are so cute to keep around the bathroom as decorations but also easy to use. An oh-so-yummy Soapy Cupcake topped with a whipped soap frosting to pamper you and your baby’s skin and leave it feeling silky soft. It’s bunches of fun, and definitely promotes more mommy tickles and tummy kisses too. And, the aroma is a temptation in itself with a fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musk’s. it’s a real Sweet Surprise! www.MarshmallowSoapCo.com to view more flavors!

Known Benefits of Glycerin/Soapy Cupcakes:
• Provides Moisture to the skin; Leaving you feeling hydrated for hours
• Glycerin Soaps creates the foundation for healthy skin

I had the opportunity to try a new and different natural sponge called the Konjac Sponge to cleanse your face. It is made by the konjac root plant by steaming the edible fiber. It is unbelievably soft and gentle plus it is ideal for deep cleansing, detoxifying, and hydrating while it balances pH levels. Daily usage brings back the natural glow and softness of the skin!

{MY REVIEW}

I have to admit when I first saw the sponge in the packaging, it was a little strange. It was rock hard and it literally looked like a rock – but boy was I surprised after following the instructions. To use the sponge, you must first soak it in water until it’s fully soft. I used this sponge to clean my face in the shower with my normal cleanser in the morning and it worked nicely. I usually do not use a loofah on my face but it was soft and gentle on my sensitive skin. Plus, it comes with a convenient suction cup holder so it can dry properly. I highly recommend trying the Konjac facial sponge with added Bamboo Charcoal. It’s natural, eco-friendly, biodegradable and chemical free. Also, you should replace it every 2-3 months and when you do, it can be composted.

You find pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge at their Amazon Store

470dade110f8560c3fea72cbba94b2cc47763c33

How to Use

  • When you receive the sponge it will be hard and dry like a loofah. You first need to soak the sponge for several minutes until it is fully soft. Please never try to use your sponge when it is hard.
  • Gently massage your face with or without your favorite cleanser. Should you choose to use a cleanser, apply only a fraction of your usual amount, as the sponge will generate more bubbles!
  • After use, rinse your Konjac Sponge and press it gently with two hands. Never wring the sponge as it will damage the fibers and won’t last as long!
  • Hang your pureSOL Konjac Sponge on the enclosed hook in a well-ventalated space. We recommend to replace your Konjac Sponge every 2-3 months or when it starts to break down. Your sponge may dry out between uses, it’s ok! All you need to do is soak the sponge again!

Tips & Tricks

  • If you live in a hot and humid climate we recommend storing your Konjac Sponge in the refrigerator in sealed container to extend the life. Please remember Konjac is a vegetable fiber and the sponge is completely natural with no preservatives or chemicals!
  • You can sterilize you sponge every few weeks by boiling it in water or popping it in the microwave for a minute.
  • Your Konjac Sponge is biodegradable and can be composted after use! You can alway feel good about using your pureSOL Konjac Sponge!

  • IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE: pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge gently exfoliates while deep cleansing and removing any toxins and impurities, leaving you with a radiant complexion. It is extremely soft and gentle for everyday skin care. Great for all skin types.
  • BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN: The natural woven fibers of the sponge gently massage the skin and stimulate blood flow. It detoxifies and encourages skin renewal while balancing the skins pH, leaving your skin extremely clean and refreshed!
  • PREVENTS SPOTS, BLACKHEADS AND BREAKOUTS: The added BAMBOO CHARCOAL contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins and other harmful chemicals from your skin. You will see your pores getting smaller, tightening and brightening your skin.
  • 100% NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY: Why compromise your health with products that contain harsh chemicals and additives on your skin? pureSOL Konjac Sponge is completely natural, eco-friendly and free of parabens, sulphates & chemicals.

{MY REVIEW}
I treated my hair to a great shampoo where it has a light, clean, fresh scent and my hair/scalp felt amazing. At first, I thought… who in their right mind would use mud to wash their hair clean? It actually has healing properties and made with pure and natural dead sea mud. The shampoo also contains olive oil, shea butter, vitamin E and chamomile for a natural formula that gets results. I used the shampoo this mooring and could automatically notice a difference with my hair in the shower. After drying my hair, my split ends were less noticeable and my hair felt thicker. You only need a small amount of shampoo so the bottle will go a long way. I know the suds of a shampoo does not necessarily mean the shampoo isn’t work but it didn’t suds up as much as I am used to with other shampoos. Overall, it was a great find and I would highly recommend spending a little money on yourself to buy this shampoo. I am recommending my husband to use this shampoo, too since he has issues with dandruff and dry scalp from using hair products for work.

I had the opportunity to test and review Detangling Brush by Crave Naturals. It is a detangling brush which works to minimize breakage, prevent split ends, and detangle hair with little effort.

Box_render_3_medium

Detangling Brush For Kids & Adults

Both children and adults will notice the benefits of this brush on the first use. Children love how it will not cause pain or tears. Adults love the brush because it is gentle and does not cause pulling or breakage.

Does Your Current Hair Brush Cause Breakage And Damage?

We guess that you probably are, that’s why we are excited to offer you the Glide Thru Detangling Brush Risk Free. The brush was designed to minimize breakage and split ends while it tackles knots and tangles effortlessly.

No More Tears or Pain For You Or Your Little Ones

Many of us are no strangers to the whining, pouting and screaming that little ones make while getting their hair brushed. This detangling brush is very gentle on children’s hair while also treating the scalp in a delicate manner.

Hairbrush_final_5_focus_medium

{MY REVIEW}

I was excited to try this detangling brush not only for my own hair but more importantly for my daughter’s hair. It is a constant battle to get a brush through her hair because she has fine, curly hair that is easily prone to tangles. The brush can be used on wet or dry hair so it was nice to be able to use the same brush at different times of the day (morning to get her hair ready for school and at night after her bath). It gently glided through my daughter’s hair after her bath and she wasn even surprised that it didn’t hurt. We are always battling to brush her hair because it always hurts her scalp but now I have a child that comes to me with the new detangling brush to “make her hair look pretty”. This puts a big smile on my face since now I’m not the bad guy when I have to brush my child’s hair in the morning before school.

You Can’t Beat the Features and Benefits Of This Detangling Brush

  • Can be used on wet or dry hair – Great for the beach
  • Use on wigs or extensions without causing damage
  • Pain free and tear free so little ones do not get upset
  • No more breakage and pulling that you old brush used to do
  • Has a handle and can be used while blow drying your hair

 

Thank you to Crave Naturals for letting me test and review this great detangling brush and I’m excited to see what other new products you will have in the future! Until next time, have a SWEET day!

Hello gorgeous! I just received the best product review ever! I received my first VoxBox from Influenster this past week and boy am I excited. This review included new products from Mary Kay! I am a newbie to Influenster so this was my very first review. This box is full of great products to brighten my spring look and get ready for the summer! It included a wide assortment of this season’s on-trend shades including warm and sun-kissed tones, soft peachy pinks and bold corals.

986689_10203041306825349_1372660483_n

WOW! So many goodies. The #MKGLAM VoxBox included:

  • Lash Love Mascara
  • Cream Eye Color Apricot Twist
  • Mineral Cheek Color Shy Blush
  • Translucent Loose Powder
  • Gel Eyeline with expandable Brush Applicator
  • Bronzing Powder
  • NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango
  • Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
  • Powder Brush

 

First I am amazed by how many products I get to try – a total of 9 items. This can’t be real! I tried all of the products together to create a look that reminds me of springtime. We had a really harsh and cold winter here in NJ so these bright colors are a warm welcome to my makeup collection. All of the products were easy to use.

I really can’t choose just one product to call my favorite since I liked all of them. What girl doesn’t like makeup? But if I had to choose, I would say that I liked the cream eye color in apricot twist since it was a soft, creamy long-wearing (up to 10 hours) eye shadow. It had a subtle sparkle to it that caught the sunlight and it created a natural looking glow. This is a great shadow for anytime. Work, school, time with friends and the list goes on.

My other favorite that I could use to dress up an outfit would be the NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. This lip gloss is a rich, intense, long-wearing shade that is a little too bright for my everyday outfits but would look super cute for a nice summer dress or night out with the hubby. I don’t wear much makeup so it was a nice change to try these great products and shades I normally wouldn’t purchase.

{MY REVIEW} 

I have been using Nature’s Best Vitamin C serum for the past week and I can honestly say that it is a great addition to my skin care regimen. I am in my early 30s and I did not take care of my skin like I should have in my teens and 20s. I’ve tried many different types of cleansers, moisturizers, etc over the past few years and I never saw a difference in my skin’s appearance. I have combination dry/oily skin with the occasional breakout. I can finally see my skin improving because of Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum.

The lightweight and non-greasy formula is 98% naturally derived and goes on smoothly when I apply it in the morning after washing my face. It absorbs quickly into the skin so I can then use my moisturizer and make-up. I do not use a lot of make-up so it is nice to use the serum without looking shiny. It is gentle enough to use daily and it is even suggested to use in the morning as well as at night. My skin looks healthier, it has a nice glow and even my dark circles under my eyes and sun spots have seemed to lighten too. Overall, I highly recommend this product to my family and friends since I have had such great results with it so far.
