This time of year my lips take a beating and regardless of the amount of lip balm I use I still feel the capped, cracked lips. Just like the rest of your skin, the skin on and around your lips need exfoliation every so often.

UNi 100% Pure Morocco Argan Oil Review

 

Now a days you hear about Argan Oil most everywhere, especially in hair salons and beauty stores. But with all these different brands, and combinations of Argan treatments for hair – one can get confused on what the real difference is. Now, for me I like to get the best of the best when it comes to a product and doing ones research is the best. When it comes to any essential oil, you want to find one that is as pure and natural as possible – staying away from additives and extras. When you get the purest form of a product, the results tend to be the best (in my opinion). So when I was asked to review Uni 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil, I knew I was in good hands.

 

UNi Argan Oil is 100% pure organic made from Moroccan Argan Trees, and its naturally light nutty scented oil helps protect, hydrate, and restore elasticity to all hair types. Its large concentration of fatty acids and antioxidants such as, omega-3, omega-6, omega-9, vitamins E, vitamins B9, and folic acid help restore the appearance of dull skin, hair, body, scalp and hands. Reduces and removes frizzy and damaged hair. Excellent for cuticles – helps prevent cracking and peeling of nails. Can treat all skin types as well as be used on sensitive and non-sensitive skin to reduce age spots and boost skin tones. USDA and ECOCERT certification means high purity and authentic.

I myself loved the product, I was lightweight and non greasy. I myself use it mainly on my hair ends, and my cuticules – thought as mentioned above there are various uses from this product. I love to use this after I use a hot tool on my hair to help seal the hair folical, as well as helping my hair dryer faster when it air dries. All and all its a great product to have in your household and helps eliminate the need for all those various other hair products.

 

Stop on over to Amazon and pick up a bottle for yourself here.

Have you tried Argan Oils before? I’d love to know your thoughts.

Pure Shea Butter Review

 

When it comes to the products that I use in and on my body I do my research, so when it comes to finding products that moisturizer my skin and are good – and get elated! One such product that I love is Shea Butter, but better yet is finding a 100% Natural and Organic Pure Shea Butter, made with Hand Selected Finest Nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana, Africa.

Those unfamiliar with uses of Shea Butter are natural relief from dry skin, psoriasis dryness, eczema and acne as well as being excellent for Stretch Marks from Pregnancy. Shea Butter can be used straight out of the tub or used to create DIY lotions, soaps, body butter and more. Deep Moisturizer for Skin – Contains VITAMIN A, VITAMIN E AND VITAMIN F – DOES NOT CLOG PORES – Highly Moisturizing and Long Lasting – Beneficial for Hair & Skin Health and Beauty.

I have added lavender essential oil to my shea butter to create my very own body moisturizer. Also great as a homemade hair mask – just add a few other ingredients and help your summer hair’s end. This is not only a great product for yourself, but awesome as a gift – or to create some homemade products as gifts. Holidays are coming up soon, so stock up on some of this before its gone.

Stop on over to Amazon and get your very own Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter here.

 

 

Enjoy!!

Skincando Product Review: Bring Your Skin Back To Life Naturally

20140303-154939.jpg

love skin care products, so when I was approached by Skincando to do a review – I couldn’t wait!

Skincando was started back in 1998 by Sara Damelio, a college student, who found herself in a skin predicament. She had battled acne ever since high school. After working at a top luxury skin care boutique in Washington, she noticed that her skin problems were not getting better and made them even worse. Sara discovered that many common substances and preservatives used in commercial skin care products are toxic and contain petroleum byproducts and parabens. She deciding to devote herself to learning about natural beauty, she became a licensed esthetician and after several years, an organic beauty specialist. After experimenting with formulas at home, she had created a winning batch & Combat-Ready Balm was born. A cream that alleviating skin for purposes beyond simply moisturizing—eczema, sunburn, insect bites, diaper rash and blisters proved to be no match for the cream.

Skincando’s eco-beauty products are the result of 10 years of research focused on healing the skin naturally. Skincando is an earth-friendly company, using non-toxic cleaning agents in our production process, we recycle and use recycled and biodegradable materials. Their belief that it is just as important to protect the environment as it is to protect ourselves. Products are handcrafted in micro-batches from the highest quality natural + organic ingredients and are free from harmful synthetics such as parabens, petrochemicals, fragrances or dyes; plus their products are concentrated and last at least two times longer than commercial products. 

Skincando offers three lines of products: Combat-Ready, Skincando Luxe & Skincando Kids.

Skincando Luxe ( Miracle Cream & Brew Lip Balm)

Combat-Ready ( Balm for Kids, Lip Balm & Soap Bar)

As you can see from the above pictures I had the privilege to sample these products, and might I say that are simply amazing! From the ingredients to the packaging – these products were a hit!

My husband even helped out on this review, and tried the Combat-Ready Soap Bar and Lip Balm. He is very particular himself and liked both products – he noted that the lip balm wasnt “greasy” or left a filmy reside as some chapsticks/lip balms do and with the brutal winter we’ve had, it provided perfect moisture and relief from the elements.

As for the Combat-Ready Balm for Babies and Kids – this is an All in One item. Worked great on my son’s chapped skin for the harsh winter air, and healed it fast. I even used it on area of irritation/diaper rash and it cleared it up almost immediately. I cant wait to order the full size and use it for the other uses during the summer/spring months (scratches & bug bites).

Now saving the best for last was the Luxe line. First of all the Brew Lip Balm is my new favorite Lip Balm out of EVERYTHING I use. I have never used such a luxury lip balm product like this, that had Myrrh Essential Oil in it before. Royalty has been using Myrrh E.O. for centuries and I can clearly see why, and now I feel like part of the crowd!! The Miracle Cream is another product to rave about, it’s an intensive natural treatment moisturizer. It not only hydrates the skin, but also diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Ingredients include: vitamins a + e, organic rose geranium oil and essential fatty acids in this cold pressed cream.  Plus they offer a vegan version of this for those who are interested.

In all I was HIGHLY pleased with this company, and the products they offer – and can understandably see why they have been featured in Martha Stewart, O Magazine, Allure, EllE Hot List, and The Today Show – to name a few.

Stop on over to Skincando, and check out the products you will be happy you did!!

Happy Pampering!!
