Any girl loves to try new makeup and I always find myself wandering down the health + beauty aisles in my local retail shops to find new products that are fast and easy to use since I have a busy, busy schedule with little time to apply make-up in the mornings.

I recently had the opportunity to test and review Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics, where founder and CEO, Jeannie Price, believes “beauty and health go hand in hand and Mia’s high performance products, formulated with the most natural ingredients available, help you achieve vibrant beauty and health inside and out”.


The Mia Mariu beauty line ranges from botanical cleansers and moisturizers to revealing your “perfect canvas” with lightweight concealers, foundations, mineral blush, eye shadows and eyeliner.  The minerals offer you lightweight, long-lasting, non-pore blocking, breathable foundation that match your natural skin tone and create a healthy appearance with 3 simple steps. STEP 1 – APPLY PRIMER, STEP 2 – APPLY CONCEALER, STEP 3 – APPLY FOUNDATION.

I first went to the Mia Mariu website to find my Perfect Shade. My complexion closely resembles the Light Shade Family and chose the Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Foundation in Vanilla (CCF01) as well as the Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer (CMP01) and Illuminating Magic Satin Blush (CCM02).


My full size samples arrived quickly and I was very excited to discover the difference between my traditional make-up versus the mineral ones from Mia Mariu. They even included a few samples of the moisturizer and cleansers to try, too. Look at all the goodies I was lucky to try out 😉

The Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer creates a smooth facial canvas allowing the foundation to glide on seamlessly, leaving a fresh natural lok that lasts all day. It is recommended to apply after moisturizer and before concealer/foundation. I only used a little amount (dime size) and applied to my face after moisturizing. It created a smooth feel to my face but very lightweight. It absorbed quickly into my skin and there was no shine at all.

Next, I applied the Perfecting Finish Foundation in Vanilla for Light skin types.  The foundation delivers an oil-free, luminous, all-day coverage while delivering the benefits of natural minerals and vitamins. The cream foundation went on smoothly and blended nicely into my skin with no noticeable streaks. It has a soft, velvet touch and matched nicely to my light skin tone.

The final touch for your makeup … Magic Satin! Give your skin a beautiful glow with Magic Satin; made with Oats and Shea Butter, it provides your skin with a calming effect while revealing a healthy look anytime. It can be used on cheekbones, as an eye shadow base, and over lips. I LOVE THIS! I added it to my cheekbones as a bronzer to give my skin a nice glow. This was my favorite product since I am always looking for a subtle blush or bronzer for the winter months when my skin is lighter..but this will be amazing during the summer months to show off my nice tan, too.

I was given the opportunity recently to review Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream. I received a 1.5 fl. oz. Noxicare™ cream formula as well as a nice t-shirt for the review {See below for what it looks like}.  Noxicare™ is specially formulated for joint, nerve, and musculoskeletal as a natural pain reliever.

{REVIEW} I started to use Noxicare™ about one week ago on my lower back and hand areas to truly test the product.  My husband and I purchased a camping trailer that we have been fixing up for the past few months and we are now putting on the finishing touches, such as painting. I have felt pain in my hand from holding the paintbrushes and rollers and I also have pain in my lower back from time to time and used Noxicare™ for these problem areas.

The cream is odorless so you do not have a medicated smell when using the product.  This is one of my favorite reasons to use Noxicare Natural Pain Relief cream since it is discrete.  The formula is non-greasy, fast acting and long-lasting.  I applied the cream generously to both my hands and lower back in the morning and at night before bed.  The bottle says to apply to the problem area 2-3 times per day.  I did notice the cream worked better on my back than hands but overall I was impressed with how quickly I felt relief as well as the natural ingredients. I do not like to take many medicines or use creams/lotions with chemicals or fragances.

{INGREDIENTS} Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream uses all natural ingredients including turmeric, willow bark, ginger, holy basil, rosemary extract, alpha lipoic acids, and boswellia extract.

I highly recommend trying Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream.  It is easy to use and keep you with at all times.  Fits nicely in your purse or bag.
