REVIEW: Gillette Venus Spa Breeze 2 in 1 Razor Plus Shave Gel Bars

This razor comes with: Built-in Shave Gel Bars with white tea scent 3-blade cartridge for a close shave Interchangeable Blade Refill Cartridges Shaving Compact for in-shower refill storage Soft grip handle for no-slip control I agree that the handle made for easy holding while shaving and I really liked the scent of the shave gel bars! This razor makes an excellent option for travelling! No need for shaving cream, very convenient. Shaving was a breeze (no pun intended, of course) with this razor, although I do have to say that I did nick myself a few times and I usually … Continue reading

REVIEW: Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion for Face, Body and Hands

I received a 4 oz bottle of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion for review right before Christmas. I have been using it my elbows, knees and hands on a daily basis for just over a month now. Skin MD Natural has: No Greasy Residue No Fragraces No Parabens No Petrochemicals No Dyes I love how it really isn’t greasy at all. In fact, it has a very unique feeling going on and once you rub it into your skin, it truly does disappear and makes your skin feel velvety soft! My knees have a rare skin condition on them and … Continue reading

Are you getting ready to go out somewhere special on New Year’s Eve? If so, you might enjoy buying some new makeup from Cover Girl to help you get ready for your special event. Cover Girl Smokey Shadow Blast & Liquiline Blast This year, we are staying in with the kids, but I used my Cover Girl Smokey Shadow Blast and Liquiline Blast on Christmas Day to dress up a bit more than I usually do and I loved how they work! I love the look of a thin line of eye liner, but I don’t use it all that … Continue reading

Product Review: Burts Bees Sunscreen

With the kids going back to school in another week, we can’t forget about re-stocking our sunscreen products. I don’t know about your children, but my daughter heads out for lunchtime recess for approximately 40 minutes every school day right at prime sun time. During September and the spring months, I lather her with sunscreen before I send her off to school. I continue to sample various sunscreens in search for the perfect one for our family. One of the latest natural ones that we tried out this summer was Burt’s Bee’s Sunscreen that comes in both 15 and 30 … Continue reading

REVIEW: Arbonne Skincare

I’m always happy to find another product that is made without Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, PABA, Petrolatum, Paraffin, Diethanolamine or Animal-Derived Ingredients! Arbonne products have this commitment behind them along with many other benefits as well! I recently had the opportunity to try out some small samples of their skin care and make up products. I was rather impressed with how smoothe my skin felt after only a few days of using them! My favourite product that I tried was the Lip Polish! It works like it claims–it glides on smoothly with no sticky feeling! It also stayed … Continue reading

(closed) Valentine’s REVIEW and GIVEAWAY: Upper Canada Body Truffles

Contest is now closed. Winner will be contacted via email. I received a bottle of Chocolate Strawberry Body Creme from the Upper Canada Soap Body Truffles product line to try out. I actually had to get my hubby’s help to open the bottle pump (I think this was a fluke)! Once he got it working for me, I lathered it on all over–my skin just soaked the stuff up as though it was so thirsty and I had never given it moisturizer before. I LOVE the way this body creme felt on my body and it certainly does make your … Continue reading

Green Beaver Skin Products

I have enjoyed a few Green Beaver products and I am sad to say that I have found the first one that I really don’t like. There aren’t many skin care products that I refuse to use, but the Green Beaver Apre-Ski Winter Body Lotion truly smells terrible. I wish I could get past the smell. I really did try because I truly believe that the product itself would work really well! Maybe if you aren’t as sensitive to smell as I am, you would like to try this out yourself?The Apre-Ski Winter Body Lotion has highly moisturizing botanical emollients … Continue reading

Upper Canada Body Butter

Upper Canada Warm Honey Nectar Body Butter I love Body Butter, especially at this time of year when my skin can get so dry. I have extreme dry patches on my knees and elbows and this Upper Canada Warm Honey Nectar Body Butter has helped to do the trick. Upper Canada Warm Honey Body Butter is rich in natural antioxidants to smooth, moisturize and protect the skin. What I do love about Upper Canada products is that they are free of parabens, mineral oils and synthetic dyes and they use all natural ingredients. Mmmm….body butter! Oh, and don’t forget to … Continue reading

Product Review: Dove

Did you know that body washes can be very drying to your skin? Dove has come up with a Body Wash NutriumMoisture™ in order to combat skin dryness. NutriumMoisture body wash products actually nourish and protect your skin in order to prevent excessive drying. It is available in three kinds: Deep Moisture, Sensitive Skin and Gentle Exfoliating. My favourite one was the Exfoliating one simply because I like the feel of exfoliating beads on my skin. However, all three body washes cleaned really well, formed a nice lather and had a nice, light scent to them. I definitely found that … Continue reading
