Burts Bees Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash

Hey Everyone!

I have been busy testing so many products in the past few weeks but do not worry I have found one defiantly worth mentioning! This one is from Burts Bees . It is  called Burts Bee’s Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash! This stuff is AMAZING it is 99.2% natural and will not dry out your skin. You will want to use every single day and you probably could because it makes your skin feel so clean and fresh. It has a very light scent that does not over power in anyway. It feels very creamy and is GENTLE. I use it at least three or four times a week. It works on you feet and I recommend using it for sure if you are going to be applying any type of sunless tanner. I can’t say enough about it and honestly you have to try it out for yourself.

 Follow me on Pintrest @ http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltandsand/boards/ you will find out my beauty loves and beauty busts!
You can find this for around $8.00 in most drug stores and some grocery stores. Also visit www.burtsbees.com

As you can see I have it in all sizes so I am never without it!

Renpure Originals Argan Oil Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment

Attention anyone with a scalp! If you have long, medium or short hair or even stuble on your head for hair then your going to want to read my review on Renpure Originals Argan Oil Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment! I have been using the Renpure Shampoo for a while and is still have to determine its potential so be on the look out for a review however after just two uses of the Renpure Originals Argan Oil Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment I am HOOKED! This stuff ROCKS! I use it as directed after I get out of the shower and I kept my hair in a towel for about 5-8 minutes. I use it even if I’ve used a different brand of shampoo and conditioner and if I skipped conditioning that day. I take my hair out of the towel brush it and then take a good couple of drops (I have very long hair, you will figure out after just one or two uses how much is right for you) rub it together in my hands and then into my hair from top to bottom. The I use what ever else and style as usual. But a couple of times I only use this and nothing else and just used a dryer. My hair never felt softer and smoother. It repaired any damage that I had and smoothed the cuticles in my hair. It added no wait or residue. My hair felt light and looked amazing. It also moistures your hair in this harsh cold winter that we are currently in. It also controlled those awful fly ends and helped with any static you might be experiencing. I cannot express enough how much I ADORE this treatment. The fact that it is versatile and can be used with any other shampoo/conditioner that you may be using is AMAZING! It protects hair from heat styling and even UV rays! I GIVE THIS A 5 $$$$$ ON QUILTY. THE RENPURE ORIGINALS ARGAN OIL DEEP PENETRATING OIL TREATMENT IS THE PERFECT PRODUCT FOR ANY HAIR TYPE OR LENGTH IT LEAVE HAIR SOFT AND SILKY! IT IS COLOR SAFE & FREE OF SODIUM CHLORIDE,SALT, DYES,SULFATES,PARABENS AND GLUTEN!

It costs around $6.00 for 3.75 Ounces and can be found at www.renpure.com but do check your local organic section of drug stores and grocery stores to avoid any shipping costs! Renpure.com with help you locate a store near you to purchase this product. Either way you wont regret it!

Kiss My Face Honey and Calendula Moisturizer

Hello again everyone, I was just going through all of my beauty products and wanted to share something with you. I bought not to long ago a Body Lotion called Kiss My Face. Well after applying just a few time I gave up on Kiss My Face and told it to Kiss My A**! I bought it thinking that it looked good it had natural ingredients. Like anyone I was excited to test the Kiss My Face Honey & Calendula  Moisturizer. Brought it home and tested it out only to be so SERVERLY DISAPPOINTED! I took some put it on my legs and it was just this white film sitting there! I rubbed and rubbed and the stuff did not absorb easily into my skin. It was white and filmy and besides that it SMELLED AWFUL. I gave it several days and when my skin was still dry and I had to reapply several time I gave up! I GIVE IT A 1 $ RATING ON POOR QUALITY AND A WASTE OF MONEY! I SAY NO TO KISS MY FACE HONEY & CALENDULA MOISTERIZER!

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Daily Moisture Body Lotion

So I know we have ALL been there and the THERE I am talking about is the quest for the PERFECT body lotion. The one you go to all year round, the one that you can use from your neck all the way down to your feet. The body lotion that absorbs in quickly without feeling greasy but doesn’t require you to reapply multiple times. Well after try some of the worst I finally found the best and it only took a year.

The only lotion I use!
THE ONE I am speaking of is Yes to Carrots Nourishing Daily moisture Body Lotion. It is paraben-free and 99% Natural! This stuff is a miracle worker in a bottle. It feels great smells great and above all moisturizes without feeling greasy you can put it on wait just a minute and get dressed. It leaves your skin silky and soft Its also amazing after you have shaved your legs you can put it on immediately and it doesn’t sting. I like the smell its light and lingers for just the right about of time around 6-8 hours.

 I love it and I GIVE IT A 5 $$$$$ ON EFFECTIVENESS! You will pay more for YES TO CARROTS NOURSHING DAILY MOISTURE BODY LOTION but its worth it. I paid $12.99 for the largest bottle 12 ounces but it really isn’t that bad when you see and feel what it does for you skin. I have used for about a year and have no regrets. The large bottles are found on the Yes to Carrots website and I have found the smaller 6 ounce bottles at Target stores and Target.com.
The Large 12oz Bottle is found on www.yestocarrots.com Follow me on pintrest @ http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltandsand/boards/

Aveeno Ultra Caling Daily Moisturizer w/ SPF 15

It's winter time and my face has had it! So I went searching for a new moisturizer. Looking up and down the aisles I was confused but I know I wanted something that would give my face moister, have SPF 15 in it and calm redness that is winter related with going in and out of warm buildings and then into the cold wind. After reading labels to a bunch of different ones I finally decided on Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15. This one is from the Active Naturals Line by Aveeno. I was skeptical but After less than a week my skin felt GREAT! It was soft, moisturized and didn’t feel greasy. My skin immediately absorbed it and was ready to either apply any other face treatment and then make-up or just the Aveeno moisturizer and go! It was quick and simple at a great price!  In fact I GIVE AVEENO ULTRA CALMING DAILY MOISTURIZER w/ SPF 15 A 5 $$$$$  not only on value around 15 dollars for 4 ounces but it does what it says it does and it feels great on the skin. This moisturizer is a MUST have in your beauty bag.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) Lip Balm

I just tried the latest from EOS Lip Balm. I have used it for three weeks now and it is by far the BEST yet. So you know exactly which one it is I am going to tell you. I searched high and low to find it but luckly I found it at my local Target of all places. It is the EOS Pomegrante Raspberry Lip Balm Smooth Spear. It glides on clear, feels smooth and not tacky. The taste is not over powering and after its on your lips for just a few minutes you can apply a lipstick gloss or whatever you like on top with no problems. You can wear it alone and it lasts about four hours before you feel the need to apply more. This lip balm is a WINNER in my book and I GIVE EOS POMEGRANTE RASPBERRY LIP BALM SMOOTH SPEAR 5 $$$$$ and a renounded Yes on value. You get your moneys worth and then some. The benfits of healthy, beautiful and tasty lips are a must have in your Beauty Bag!

On a side note as I mentioned earlier this particular flavor was difficult to find but I did find it at Target but in the lip balm aisle it was as you check out from the store while waiting in line.

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

To make it fair to Simple as I mentioned in the earlier posting I also tested the Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel and here are my findings.

The Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. I used this for seven days as well. I used it while wearing make-up to see if it got it off. It gets the make-up just as well as the wipes however you need to take extra time around the eyes in order to remove it all off. It does not irritate the eyes and did not make my face red or even feel dry. For me this was the clear WINNER in the Simple Wipes Versus Simple Gel Cleanser. It had everything I look for in a cleanser. No irritation effective, cleaning but a little extra time to get the make-up off of your eye area. I GIVE SIMPLE REFRESHING FACIAL WASH GEL 4.5 $$$$ on Yes you will get your moneys worth if you don't mind taking the extra time around the eye area to remove your make-up!

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

I tested the latest facial cleansers from a company who call themselves "SIMPLE" Sensitive Skin Experts. I am sure you have seen the commercials on TV and I was curious so I went out and bought the Cleansing Facial Wipes and the Refreshing Facial Wash Gel.

 I used both first the wipes for seven days all Seven days I was wearing a full face of make-up and YES they did do the job with just one wipe all the make-up came off but here is the catch. The wipes left my face feeling dry and a little red. So if you have very sensitive skin or even slightly sensitive skin I don't suggest you use the wipes on a daily basis may just to get heavy make-up off. It was sensitive enought to get eyeliner and mascara off without irritation which gor me is a huge plus! I GIVE THE SIMPLE CLEANSING FACIAL WIPES 3.5 $$$ on Yes you will get your moneys worth if your skin is not sensative!
