Exfolimate – Review

Summer is right around the corner (wishful thinking), but I still need to help get my skin prepped and ready for the summer glow and to wear shorts.  When I was approached to do a review for this I was a little apprehensive, because I was always thought to believe that body scrubs were the answer.

Exfolimate helps clear the pores and smooth the skin’s surface for a more consistent, even sunless tanning application. Thoroughly moisten the skin in the shower or bath and simply use Exfolimate to help remove sunless tanning products or prepare for more consistent applications.
The application of sunless tans can block the pores, and new applications cannot be made until those blockages are cleared. Exfolimate achieves this without harsh treatments. One of the greatest problems in the tanning industry is removing a sunless tan as it fades. Now it can be removed quickly and easily in the shower or bath, by first soaking the skin, and using Exfolimate to remove the tanning products on the skin’s surface. For stubborn tans use your favorite cleanser or baby oil. It’s amazing.

Say G’day to ultra smooth skin and goodbye to dull, flakey skin. Introducing Exfolimate ™ – the ultimate tool to give you younger, fresher looking and feeling skin.

Designed in Australia – Exfolimate is your handy mate to instant exfoliation and pore clarification without the fuss of scrubs and loofahs that only rub the surface of your skin without actually removing the problem.
The secret is Exfolimate’s innovative micro-groove technology etched into the smooth metal edge. The micro-grooves gently lift and remove lingering skin cells and debris to unveil younger, fresher skin.

Exfolimate is made to gently exfoliate the face and body and is precision designed for daily exfoliation and naturally skin clearing results.
Exfolimate transforms the surface of your skin.

Exfolimate is a new breakthrough in Skincare technology. Using patented
Smooth edge micro groove technology, exfolimate gently releases dirt
And oil embedded beneath your skin’s surface. This radical deep-cleanse
Dramatically improves tone and texture, while reducing pore size, oily
Patches, dry areas and visible signs of ageing.
Use for a minute daily for fast rejuvenation or as part of your full beauty
Regime to transform your complexion. In addition to deeper cleansing,
Exfolimate offers users enhanced exfoliation and superior moisturisation by
Improving the absorption of Skincare products. It’s safe for all skin types
And leaves skin feeling softer and noticeably brighter and refreshed.
Each Exfolimate box set comes in a two-piece Face and Body combination. The smaller tool easy exfoliates the face and neck, reaching those small crevices around the nose (and even behind the ears!) While the larger body tool quickly exfoliates your arms, legs, chest and back for spray-tan prep or removal.
• Provides deeper cleansing, enhanced exfoliation and superior moisturisation
• Cleanses, refreshes and revives skin
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Leaves skin feeling softer and looking brighter
• Improves skin tone and texture
• Reduces dry spots and oily patches
• Increases the absorption of skin care products
• Safe for all skin types

In all I was pleasantly surprised, that this did an AWESOME job if not better job exfoliating my skin than standard body scrubs. Less mess, which is a huge factor and also the fact that you wont create a slippery tub (slipping hazard).  I definitely recommend anyone looking to try something new, worth it.

 

Happy Pampering!

  1. Nicka K New York Nail Color (Red) – A new product for me to try out and I am impressed. Great color, and super durable from chips (tends to happen to me alot, especially more these days with a 9 month old). Also DBP, Toluene and added formaldehyde free lacquer – for those trying to avoid unwanted chemicals like me.
  2. Organix Coconut Water Shampoo & Conditioner – A lightweight ultra hydrating boost for your hair. Lets face it the summer sun and stress from pools, can strip your hair of its natural moisture leaving it not so nice and manageable. This helps bring it back to life at the end of a hot summer day. Transform hair into shiny perfection with nutrient rich electrolytes. It is residue free & sulfate free formula.
  3. Glam Natural Mascara – A classic black mascara for those eco-conscious women. Its vegan, gluten, paraben & cruelty free. Also great for those with sensitive eyes. For me it was good for my bottom lashes but didn’t compare to my normal mascara on my top lashes.
  4. Eslor Introductory Collection Calming Kit – Specifically formulated with a selection of natural ingredients and botanical extracts known to calm inflammation while hydrating and restoring balance to the skin! 100% Free of Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES). I havent had a chance to give this a try yet, but love the concept of the company and its ingredients. Definitely worth a try.

Lush: Review & Giveaway

(This complimentary item was sent for review purposes. As always, all opinions are my own and no compensation was received.)

Memorial Day Weekend is just a few days away, and with that thoughts of BBQ, Pool Parties, Laying on the Beach all frequent everyone’s mind. Especially after the winter we’ve had, we open the summer with open arms and are ready for plenty of gatherings with friends and family. When it comes to parties its always a guessing game as to what to serve your guests, something that’s refreshing but fun – well have I found that answer to something new and for those who love their wine like me!

Lush is an all-natural and organic dry mix that you mix with your favorite type of wine, put it in the freezer and 6-8 hours later it’s a delicious, frozen, wine slush. Similar in consistency to a frozen margarita. Started by Owners Erin Rose Myers or Kelli Jennings, two sister-in-laws, at a holiday gathering. They wanted something different to serve at a party, that was fun and fit their wants of quality and pure/organic ingredients.  (Why didn’t someone think of this sooner – its genius!!!)

Lush currently comes in 2 options: Original and the Sangria. With 3 simple ingredients you’ve got yourself wine slushies (Lush Wine Mix, Your Favorite Bottle of Wine (Red, White, even Champagne) and Ice – that’s its! They do recommend the Sangria with a red wine, although it works well with a white too.One bag of Lush goes with 1 bottle of wine. You more than double your volume as each bag of Lush will yield 55 oz of wine slush. Your normal 750ml bottle of wine is just over 25 oz. You should get approximately 11 servings out of 1 bag of Lush. Also you can make it in the freezer ahead of time, or use a blender – depending on the quantity/demand of the guests. For those that don’t want an alcoholic beverage, you can make the this non-alcoholic as well with either sparking cider, ginger ale or juice (instructions available on their website). Lush gives a $1 of every bag purchased to help feed families struggling with hunger. Typically Lush gives back through Feeding America; however, they’ve also donated to local charities as well such as the Golden Backpack Program and Denver Rescue Mission. You can feel good drinking your Lush knowing that you helped provide a meal to a hungry family.


This past weekend I had the pleasure to share the Lush Wine Mix with my guests at my son’s baptism, and from what I heard – it was a BIG hit! I paired it with a white wine, light a fruity, and used the blender method which worked wonderfully to whip up a fresh batch when needed. I even have one more package that I am going to bring along for my cousins bachelorette party this coming weekend – can’t wait … yum!! I am BEYOND impressed with this product and the easy of use, this is a great alternative to parties and especially during the summer months. 

My good friends at Lush are extremely generous that they are not only offering one lucky winner a 2-pack of the Lush Wine Mix (One Sangria, and One Regular) but they are also offering a special discount code for my readers to help with their summer gatherings this year.
