whish_sugar_scrub_pomegranate

Have dry, itchy winter skin? Let the Whish Three Wishes Sugar Scrub help you buff your way to soft, smooth skin in one shower. I am a fan of Whish  they have so many great bath and body products that smell great and work even better. Their Three Wishes Sugar Scrub does not disappoint.

Three Wishes sugar scrub features a moisturizing base of organic beeswax and shea butter., whipped to become a soft solid.  Brown sugar, raspberry seed, and bamboo powder do the heavy lifting, to exfoliate, while organic shea butter, organic, antioxidant raspberry butter and organic aloe moisturize, and Vitamin E extract, and organic avocado oil, renew your skin. I just scoop out a small amount and the product is thick and stays right where I need it without getting runny. The scrub has just the right amount of grit to buff my skin without irritating. I love how emollient the product is, my skin felt incredibly soft and smooth after just the first use. The Whish sugar scrubs use essential oils so their products smell amazing and are  natural and organic..

EOS-Blueberry-Acai-Smooth-Sphere-Lip-Balm

I am hooked on the eos lip balms. I love how the shape is easy to find in my purse no matter how packed I have it. The balm feels so great on my lips, especially in this cold winter weather. The new Blueberry Acai balm smells and heck tastes delicious. It has a great blueberry scent with a hint of acai. It tastes like a summer cocktail and is definitely one my favorite eos balms.

eos Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere $3.29
The eos Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere is a must have for moms-to-be to keep their lips smooth and moisturized.  It has the delicious flavor of blueberries with the same love, delight and moisturization you always get from eos. This revolutionary smooth sphere applies directly on lips, so it’s more hygienic than pot lip balms. The lip balm not only tastes good, it includes anti-oxidant filled blueberry and acai berry extracts to keep you smiling.

Availability: Target, Walmart, Walgreens

In the winter its easy to forget to include skincare in your daily routine. But the damaging effects of the sun can affect you on even the cloudiest, cool winter day. And if you like hitting the slopes you need to make sure your skin is protected. The amazing COOLA sunscreen line is organic and safe for pregnant moms or kids. I am a big fan of the Unscented Sunscreen line from COOLA for Body and Face. I like how sheer the product is, I can apply it without worry of feeling sticky or oily. COOLA sunscreen not only protects my skin from environmental damages and premature aging it also has antioxidant protection that rejuvenates and moisturizes my skin.

Yogalosophy: 28 Days to the Ultimate Mind-Body Makeover by Mandy Ingber ($20)
This is a New York Times Best Seller written by yoga and fitness instructor to the stars Mandy Ingber. Her clients include Jennifer Aniston, Kate Beckinsale, Brooke Shields and Helen Hunt. The book has an easy to follow day to day guide gives you inspiration, workouts, shopping lists and recipes, and more. I found this book very engaging to read and I have been having fun learning some new yoga moves and perfecting some of my old favorites.

Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream (Deluxe sample, valued at $10)
This is a really rich lotion that is specially formulated using Apothederm’s patented technology to help reduce the appearance of both red and silver stretch marks. The cream is really rich and you just need a bit for coverage. Within the first few uses I could see a definite improvement in my skin tone and texture.

Amala Detoxifying Body Butter (Sample packet, valued at $2.70)
Amala sources their ingredients from global fair trade partners and uses a custom distill method to ensure their organic plant ingredients retain their full value. This rich body butter is made with Myrtle, Fig, and Olive Oil. The inclusion of Myrtle is what gives it the detoxifying property that helps remove impurities from skin while it heals, softens, and protects.

REN Glyco Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask (Delux sample, valued at $19)
Using Natural Fruit Acids and Papain, this peel mask works to diminish fine lines and improve skin tone. It’s even won an award for best instant brightening! All their products are made without synthetics and use 100% plant and mineral derived ingredients.

Acure Organics Cell Stimulating Body Wash (Deluxe sample, valued at $4)
Made with Moroccan Argan Stem Cells, Organic Argan Oil, CoQ10, Sea Buckthorn Oil, and Pumpkin Seed Oil it smells fantastic! Acure is a great family-owned company that has a wide selection of organic, fair trade, and natural beauty and personal products. I love how great this body wash smells and it feels fantastic on my skin.

Daily Concepts Body Scrubber ($10)
The body scrubber has a little tag on it with a message that fades away over time, signifying time for it to be replaced. Its packaging is multi-purpose, too! You store the scrubber in the packaging using the included suction cup. It does a great job of exfoliating my skin without irritating it.

Nature’s Dynamics Body Boost Bone & Calcium Gummy ($30)
I got the Bone & Calcium version, these gummies include spinach, kale, broccoli, and parsley! With all the greens included I thought the taste might be off putting but they actually taste great. Such an easy and yummy way to add vitamins to my diet.
