Baby Yourself with BabyIt and DreamBelly Butter

Making gift baskets is a hobby of mine. I don’t sell them, I make them to give to others for special occasions. My favorite gift basket making occasions are “Baby Showers”. My kids will tell you how much I love baby showers. When I have the opportunity to make a baby shower or baby basket, it has to be just right. I always ask family members and women I know who recently had a baby what the popular gift items are. I also want to know what type of gifts they would like to receive.

Besides the usual baby accessories like onesies, adorable sleepers and blankets,  “Mommy Skincare” was on the top of the list. After all, mommies need pampering too and what better time than after giving birth. Two items that I am placing in a gift basket I am making, is BabyIt and DreamBelly Butter. Both are especially made for “MOM”.

BabyIt is a 2-in-1 before and after childbirth necessity. BabyIt is the winner of the 2017 Baby Maternity Magazine Top Choice award and the 2016 Cribsie Awards Academy Star award, BabyIt is a must have for all pregnant moms! Doctor-formulated and paraben free BabyIt is a multipurpose gel that can be used to sooth and heal sensitive areas as well as to moisturize baby’s delicate skin.  I am told that BabyIt is very soothing and  provides much needed relief after giving birth.

You can purchase BabyIt and learn more about it online at www.MyIsoLove.com

 

Women also wanted relief from the dry skin they succumb to during their pregnancy. As their belly grows, the skin stretches causing itchiness, dryness and irritation. DreamBelly Butter by Fairhaven is designed to help protect and nourish your skin as it stretches to accommodate your growing belly during your pregnancy. How I wish I had this product when I was having children. DreamBelly Butter is formulated with rosehip oil, aloe vera, honeysuckle and grapefruit, all of which help protect and regenerate your skin and provides soothing relief from the itchiness. The  natural butters and oils are non greasy and has a gentle scent of milk and honey. DreamBelly Butter contains no petroleum products, parabens, artificial colors or artificial preservatives

Sometimes our skin just needs a little lava magik

Sometimes our skin just needs a little Lava Magik.  Let me introduce you to my latest find. If you love Mirakle Cream (which I do), The Better Skin Company’s Lava Magik  will do for your face what Mirakle Cream does for your skin.

Lava Magik is a luscious scented facial scrub that looks like sorbet and smells like oranges. It’s fabulous food for your skin. Lava Magik is a Cleanser, Scrub and Mask all in one.  I’ve used Lava Magik as a Cleanser, Mask and Facial Scrub and I can tell you that my skin is left soft and glowing every time. My husband even uses it, seriously!

This Skin cleansing volcanic lava from France is enriched with nourishing calendula, sweet orange and grapeseed oils, cucumber, parsley, and chamomile.  This mask contains all the ingriedients needed for healthy glowing skin.

To use as a cleanser, you will only need a tiny amount of Lava Magik, mix with water and apply to your wet skin and gently rinse off.

As a scrub, apply Lava Magik to your wet skin and massage the desired areas in a circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds and rinse off. Use as a scrub twice a week for maximum results. This non abrasive formula will have you looking forward to your next treatment.

Use Lava Magik once or twice a week for an amazing mask. Simply apply to wet or dry skin (as preferred), leave on 3 to 6 minutes. For additional exfoliation, moisten fingertips and massage in a circular motion while removing. Adjust Lava Magik to water ratio based on skin type. Use a little more Lava Magik for combination or normal to oily skin and less for dry, sensitive skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

You will notice that Lava Magik buffs away dead skin cells creating the appearance of a more youthful glowing skin and minimizes appearance of pores

Lava Magik is Paraben-free, Gluten-free and Vegan and  suitable for all skin types and both Women and Men can enjoy its benefits.  Visit Ulta.com and find more skin care products from The Better Skin Company.

natura brasil is beautiful skincare for all seasons

If you are not familiar with the skincare line natura Brasil, you certainly will be now. I am loving the skincare products, mainly their exfoliating soap and dry Body Oil. Of course, I always have to share my finding with my daughter and she is loving the restorative hair mask.

natura Brasil Skincare is not your average skincare and they make perfect gifts. Weather your skin is dry from the winter weather or dry from the hot summer sun, nutura Brasil has a skincare line that will satsify any skin concern any time of year.

The exfoliating soap is fabulous and both my husband and I use it. The Maracuja seeds found in the soap delivers a non abrasive, natural exfoliation and has a nice delicate fragrance. The exfoliating soaps are vegetable based soap made in the Amazon containing a blend of pure Brazilian oils including soothing Maracuja oil. This soap feels fabulous on your skin and the Vitamin E helps to keep your skin healthy and glowing.   Natura Brasil’s Expert Tip when using the soap:  Follow with Maracujá Triple Phase Shower Oil to lock in moisture.

View the collection of vegan soaps which are sustainably made in the Amazon: Castanha, Maracuja, Acai, Cacau and Copaiba at Natura Brasil
One of my favorites from the Natura Brasil skincare line is the Dry Body Oil. I absolutely love it.  I have never used a dry oil that quickly absorbs into the skin and dries so fast. Simply spritz the oil onto your skin (adding extra oil to really dry skin) and gently rub in the oil. The oil drys so fast you never feel oily or greasy and your skin will feel so soft immediately. It’s my favorite and I love using it. The Dry Body Oil is formulated with nourishing castanha oil from Brazil and natural almond, olive and borage oils.

Natura Brasil’s Expert Tip: Massage into cuticles to instantly soften them and to leave nails with a healthy sheen.

My daughter tells me the MURUMURU Reconstructive Hair Mask is “Awesome”.  She has very thick hair and the mask adds a softness to it making her hair feel silky and shiny. You only apply a small amount to clean wet hair, massage in and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing out. Gone are the days when hair masks need 15 to 20 minutes or longer to work their magic.

MURUMURU Reconstructive Hair Mask  helps repair dry, damaged and over processed hair. It is also perfect for textured or curly hair. It is formulated with Brazilian murumuru butter to deeply penetrate and repair hair fibers and sealing split ends.

nutra Brasil Skincare is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petroleum, triclosan, DEA and animal ingredients.    naturabrasil.com

Natura’s mission, since 1969,  has been to help build a better world through our commitment to transparency, sustainability and well-being.
