Aloe Soothing Gel makes the Skincool Ice Roller even Better

Skincool Ice Roller

I still use my ice roller! It’s a great product that hasn’t failed me yet. I love the convenience of taking the roller out of the freezer whenever I need it. It’s cold, dry and ready to go. I snap the roller on the handle and my hand is never cold as I roll the ice roller over my knee. You can read my feature on Hansderma Skincool ice roller here:

http://donnaraheb.itsaglamthing.com/?p=10049

Hansderma SkinCool Aloe Balm with Menthol 2 oz, Lavender, Tea Tree Oil, Arnica, Camphor Oil, Ginseng. Pain Relief, Soothing, Cooling, Calming

I’m happy to report the Hansderma has developed  Skincool Aloe Blam, an aloe soothing gel, to be used before ice rolling. Simply apply the Aloe soothing Gel to the area you will be ice rolling.  Aloe Soothing Gel contains menthol providing an added cooling effect before and after ice rolling. Aloe Soothing Gel also contains lavender (one of my favorite aromas) which aids in healing and tea tree oil which contains antibacterial, anti fungal, and antiviral properties. 

I have used the aloe balm separately for temporary relief for sore muscles after exercising and Aloe Soothing Gel provides its own aroma therapy, it is quite relaxing. Aloe Soothing Gel is formulated to reduce irritation while providing a nice cooling and soothing effect.  Aloe Soothing Gel is squeezed right from the bottle on to your sore areas and there is no mess involved. The gel also absorbs into your skin so there is no need to wipe excess off. Aloe Soothing Gel definitely enhanced my ice rolling treatment. My Skincool Ice roller (sold separately) is always in my freezer ready and waiting for me as is the Aloe Soothing Gel.

Vintage spring cleaning on Studio 10

With springtime right around the corner its time to start tackling those pesky household chores. Today I shared some tips on how to make those household chores quick, safe and can also help save money. So let’s get our “June Cleaver” on and start cleaning!

Studio 10

Studio 10

Watch the segment here: http://www.wtsp.com/videos/entertainment/2015/03/23/70328616/

First off you want to protect your hands from any loss of hydration with a skin shielding product like Gloves in a Bottle. One quick spray will help lock in moisture and take the place of Grandma’s Old Yellow gloves. Believe it or not the overuse of water can take away moisture in the hands.

Start your cleaning off with baking soda. Baking soda is a very versatile product that can be used indoors and out. Use it in your pool to help maintain the pH balance. For example: if your pH balance is 7.2 add 2-3 lbs of baking per 10,000 gallons of water. Not only can you use it for the pool but use it to clean your pots, pans your bathroom and so much more. It’s a safe and effective way to clean and will not harm your pets or your children.

Vinegar water is one of my favorite ways to clean my toilet bowl and the mirrors in my bathroom. Take vinegar of your choice Add 1/2 vinegar to 1/2 water and mix together. This will help clean mirrors in your bathroom without leaving streaks. For the toilet bowl, add some vinegar to your toilet bowl and let it set overnight. In the morning you will have streak free bowls. Also, vinegar can be used to help clean your shower head.

After cleaning your mirrors you can help eliminate steam buildup which will cause more dirt to your mirrors by using shaving cream. Take your shaving cream and shake it up. Apply a thin layer to your mirror and allow it to stay. While you are waiting for it to for it to do its job, try it out with a hot shower or allow steam into the room. This will help the shaving cream absorb unto the mirror for future use.

Now that we have cleaned let’s get organized. Take an extra jewelry organizer and instead of storing jewelry use it to organize all those cords we have from laptop, kindles, iPads, cell phones etc. Use a label maker to label which cord is which. Then also use the other side for little knick knacks such as pens, notepads, post its etc. This is also great in the kids room for Barbie’s shoes, accessories, and little parts to any toy boys or girls.

Last but not least organize your closet with a shoe organizer. Get a shoe organizer that hangs from the rod and use this to store notebooks, cards, remotes, you can also use it to store some of your hair tools, products etc. It’s another great small toy organizer and also can be used for those foam sandals we all seem to have so much of here in Florida but never quite know where to put them. The sections are big enough to store more than one thing but be sure not to exceed the weight limit of the rod in your closet.
