My biotiful bag is the result of a desire to create a sustainable organic accessory for eco-friendly, stylish shoppers. The handbags are made from certified organic cotton and dyes that are free of heavy metals. The company strives to raise awareness for organic cotton and its positive impact on people and the planet. Their bags are sustainable from the inside out.

My Biotiful Bag Review:
I was offered the chance to review one of these bags and they are not only nice bags they are really well made. I chose the Workout Bag in Deep Red. I love the size for the gym or quick overnight trips.

First thing I noticed was the quality of the bag. Its made a really nice durable cotton and had a bunch of great features from a shoulder strap, double zipper to interior pocket to keep valuables and small items safe.

I have used this bag for the gym and a few beach trips and I love it. The double zipper and snaps keeps my stuff in place and its the perfect size, not too big but enough room to fit all the necessities. I really love the color of this bag, the red is so vibrant I can’t get enough.

This will be so handy all summer long, I am so impressed with this line. On top of making great bags I love that the line is eco-friendly. And they have so many styles and colors to choose from any of these bags would make a great gift.

Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

large_23_self-tanning-mousse-5.7-cart-large

In a word…. genius! Two of my Spring/Summer necessities rolled into one great product. I am very fair and love to use self tanners or bronzers to keep my skin from looking paper white. One issue is always using self tanner during the day then adding sunscreen on top. It can get thick and sticky quick.

Supergood has combined both self-tanner, moisturizer and sunscreen in one great mousse. The product is thick and mousse is the best way to describe the texture. It doesn’t have any strange self tanner smell and applies really easily. Within two days use my skin has a great healthy glow all while stay protected from sun damage. A great product for those of us who want a bit of color but want to avoid skin damage. This will be a summer staple for me!

Supergoop Gradual Self-Tanning Mousse SPF 20 $38
