Give the gift of Baby Foot, the revolutionary, all-natural, foot exfoliant that makes your feet as smooth and softer than ever. Its unique formula, which includes 17 types of natural extracts, allows feet to exfoliate naturally, leaving them healthy looking and beautiful.

The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid, which is very gentle. It penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes, which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged and peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. After peeling, your feet are reborn just like a baby’s foot.

Once your friends or loved ones try Baby Foot, they’ll be hooked; $25, www.BabyFoot.com.

img_6260

I recently acquired a pair of earrings from Beth Quinn Designs (shown above). They are beautiful and sparkle like crazy when worn. I wore them on Thanksgiving and received many compliments. Everyone asked me where I got them. They are unique and you won’t find them browsing through a department store which is why jewelry from Beth Quinn Designs will make the perfect addition to everyone’s jewelry box. These particular earrings called “Pink Sparkle” are vintage light pink rhinestones dangling from sterling earwires . I especially love that a portion of the proceeds of “Pink Sparkle” go to fight breast cancer and the Susan G Komen Foundation . I just love it!

Sustain your youth with “Sustainable Youth”

·   unnamed-3

During the past year, I have discovered some pretty amazing face creams, serums, and eye treatments. I try many types of skincare and some just don’t work out. Sustainable Youth Skincare, Anytime Lift Eye Treatment and Super Boost Night Serum, in particular, are working out great for me.

To familiarize you with Sustainable Youth, the line carries a face cream, firming serum and cleansing lotion along with the eye treatment and night serum. All Sustainable Youth Skincare products contain alasta.  Alasta is the unique ingredient that is derived from Aloe. If you don’t already know this, Aloe is a remarkable substance that heals burns and moisturizes skin. I have an Aloe plant myself and occasionally apply the gel contained inside the leaf  to my skin. alasta®, however, is not derived from the gel but from the rind of the aloe vera leaf.. pretty amazing!

alasta®  also enhances your immune systems performance, so the stronger your immune system is more it will help resist inflammation, free radical damage and collagen fiber degradation which are two major contributors to aging skin.

Basically, if you like the gel you get an Aloe plant and you want great skincare with tremendous moisturizing and anti-aging properties, you get Sustainable Youth.smallest

Anytime Lift Eye Treatment™  is a lightweight eye cream that minimizes dark circles and under eye puffiness while helping to lessen the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. The smallest amount is needed for both eyes which I use morning and night. You will feel a light tightening almost immediately. If used consistently, you will have great results. Anytime Lift Eye Treatment™ is formulated with “natural gums and polymers providing a visible lifting effect.” *  Natural plant herbs, Vegetable Proteins, natural extracts, Humectants and emollients all work together to help your skin look younger, fresher, softer and brighter.

Super Boost Night Serum™ has a beautiful botanical scent and when applied, dries very quickly leaving your skin cool and dry. I use the serum on my face and neck and the cooling feeling is quite refreshing. The night Serum also is formulated with Vegetable Proteins, natural extracts, Humectants and emollients offering the same results.

According to Sustainable Youth: Sustainable Youth and alasta®?

Sustainable Youth and alasta® aids in:

  • Overall skin improvement in just 1 week of use
  • Shown to visibly increase skin elasticity and firmness up to 72% when used topically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosts the immune system’s overall performance to help the skin better resist inflammation and combat free radical damage and collagen fiber degradation
  • Formulated with natural ingredients
  • Free of parabens and chemicals
  • Proprietary blend of organically grown natural extracts, including cucumber, white mulberry, green tea, licorice root, and fig provide soothing and calming relief

 

The collection is available online at SustainableYouth.com

Perfect Stocking Stuffers & Gift Sets for “HIM” from Schulz & Malley

If you are looking for a fabulous gift for a “guy”, and you are stuck, consider Schulz & Malley. My husband is loving the face wash among their our men’s grooming products,and told me he wouldn’t mind getting another bottle or two. With that being said, It must be a winner:  check out my previous post below and have a fabulous holiday. Check out Schulz & Malley first, of course.

unnamed-3

Schulz & Malley Trading Company has just introduced a fabulous grooming set specifically designed for men. I am bestowing their newest Regiment Gift Set to each of my two sons this holiday season. I am hoping that this gift will be an incentive for them to shave off their excess facial hair so “mom” can see those handsome baby faces. Seriously, even if they just use the products to feel better, that’s the most important thing. My husband thinks that they will really like the “shave set” as he calls it because he is enjoying his own Regiment Gift Set.

My husband is very fussy about the products he uses on his face and won’t use anything with a strong scent. Schulz & Malley Trading Company’s Regiment has the perfect scent. It’s light and mild but definitely masculine. The scent is perfect for those who don’t want to smell like a strong scent of cologne after using their shaving products.

The Regiment includes a Cleansing Face Wash, Pre-Shave Oil, Brushless Shave Cream and After Shave BalmSchulz & Malley products are made with proprietary blends of natural ingredients, including essential oils, antioxidant vitamins, humectants, peptides and algae extracts. The products work quite well, if they didn’t, my husband wouldn’t still be using them.

  • The Cleansing Face Wash is a mild formula that can be used both day and night It won’t dry or irritate the skin.
  • The Brushless Shave Cream will give you the closest shave ever. Softens Hair. It contains Aloe Vera leaving your skin soft and ready for shaving.
  • Pre-Shave Oil is rich in botanicals and provides slip and glide for a friction‐free, effortless shave. Have a tough or stubborn beard? Pre Shave Oil will prepare his beard by softening stubborn hair for a clean, close shave. My husband also points out that the Brushless shave cream is very convenient for traveling.
  • Lastly,  the After Shave Balm soothes and  moisturizes skin. With a blend of Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Extract, Cooling Menthol, Chamomile Extract and Oat Kernel Extract he will feel so good he will want to shave again. He will smell fantastic too!

To learn more about Schulz & Malley Trading Company please visit www.schulzmalley.com. The products are also available on QVC.coma nd other retailers across the country.

The Mane Choice Haircare is my Main Choice

I love my latest find in hair care. It’s called The Mane Choice. I was intrigued by the fact that the line claims to “nourish, grow and retain hair”. Yes!!! You read correctly, Retain Hair! I really need this particular feature in a shampoo right now. Each time I wash my hair I notice more and more strands falling out…Yikes!

The Mane Choice Haircare Line  was created by a Physician and Registered Nurse duo (who are also husband and wife!)  offering solutions to common hair problems.

unnamed-2

What makes The Mane Choice line so unique is that it is infused with vitamins and essential nutrients including Biotin, Vitamin A, B, C, D, & E. After the first use, I felt my hair soft, silky and bouncy. I have very curly hair so I am quite fussy about the haircare products I use and The Mane Choice is a keeper.

Easy On The CURLS Detangling Hydration Shampoo worked beautifully for me. My hair is very dry so I do not wash it every day.  Easy On The CURLS Detangling Hydration Shampoo kept my hair hydrated until the next washing. The shampoo also aids in eliminating knots and tangles, which for me, is a huge reason my I lose hair in the shower. Easy On The CURLS Detangling Hydration Shampoo is infused with Biotin and Vitamin E which adds to the healthiness in your hair which I noticed after the first shampoo.

Compliment your hair washing routine with Soft As Can Be Revitalize & Refresh 3-in-1 Co-Wash, Leave-In, Detangler. This is a 3 in 1 conditioner that is a conditioner, a leave-in conditioner, and detangler. I found that the shampoo and conditioner worked so well I didn’t need to “leave-in” the conditioner but it is a good feature to have.

Applying hair masks is definitely something I need to do more of.  It was when I used the Green Tea & Carrot Deep Strengthening & Restore Mask Treatment that I realized I need to use this product as recommended about every 1 to 2 weeks. After using the mask I immediately felt my hair having a softer texture. Green Tea & Carrot Deep Strengthening & Restore Mask Treatment is enriched with biotin, green tea, and carrot oil and the mask will immediately begin to repair and restore dry and damaged strands.

You only need an extra 15 minutes (with heat) or 1 hour (without heat) every week or so. This may seem like a lot of time especially if you don’t have a dryer like myself, but it is definitely worth it.  After shampooing, apply a generous amount from root to end and massage gently into  your hair. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and sit under a dryer for 15 minutes or leave on with a plastic cap (I used a shower cap) for up to 1 hour without heat. Rinse thoroughly and style as usual. The mask works great for natural, relaxed, permed, and colored treated hair. My 20-year-old daughter is using the mask too and loves it.

If you want to add a supplement to your hair care routine, consider Metabolism Plus. This is a daily complete dietary supplement formulated to grow hair on the scalp longer, thicker, faster and healthier.

The Mane Choice Haircare line contains an array pf products ranging from shampoos, conditioners,  an Ancient Egyptian line, Hair tools, and vitamins. You can find The Mane Choice Hair Care line at  www.themanechoice.com or at Target, Sally’s Beauty, Rite Aid and CVS Pharmacy.

Hynt Beauty Skin Prep will keep your skin looking perfect

hynt-skin-prep_large

 

If you have the opportunity to test Hynt Beauty’s Bioactive Marine Complex Skin Prep Serum you really should. If you want to see how quickly this serum works, test a small amount on the top of one of your hands. I noticed immediately, after applying a small amount how velvety soft and slightly firm my skin became. The scent of it was quite unique as it had a refreshing light botanical scent.

Bioactive Marine Complex Skin Prep Serum worked just as well on my face. I have been using serums for a few years now and this one I highly rate. Less than one pump is all I needed for  full coverage on my neck and face. I use Skin Prep Serum daily after cleansing my face. The serum dries quicky and smells delightful.  It’s the perfect serum to use before applying your make up as Skin Prep Serum is also a primer. I never experienced a heavy or oily feeling and loved how my skin felt throughout the day which was dry and smooth.

What makes Bioactive Marine Complex Skin Prep Serum so unique? It is a “seawater based that is formulated only with multiple types of organic algae extracts and selectively handpicked organic plant and flower extracts known to resurface, firm and rewind the skin to its original perfection.” according to  Hynt Beauty.

Some of the organic plant and flower extracts found in the serum are Organic Grapefruit Seed, Organic Rosemary Leaf, Organic Clary Sage Oil, Organic Lavender Oil, Organic Tea Tree Leaf Oil and  more.

Other qualities that make Skin Prep Serum so appealing is that it is, Vegan, Organics-based, PETA Approved, Gluten-free and Non-Comedogenic and perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin.  Skin Prep Serum is also free of Toxins, Petrochemicals, Parabens, Nano-particles, Bismuth Oxychloride, Talc, Silicones, Mineral Oil, GMO’s, FD&C dyes, Carmine and Phthalates. Find Skin Prep Serum as well as an array of cosmetics, accessories and skincare at www.HyntBeauty.com
