Rainbow Bandz Organiziation Box Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Wow, those rainbow looms have been a hot ticket for a while now with kids of all ages. The biggest challenge is keeping all those teeny, tiny colored bands organized. A big box with compartments is one of the best options. It sure makes it easier for the kids to craft but I find it keeps my house so much tidier!
The Rainbow Bandz Organization Box is the perfect clear plastic organizer case for rainbow loom and rubber bands with adjustable compartments. It has plenty of room to fit the rainbow loom kit and other connectors. You can personalize it with paint pens from the craft store too. That is what we did. It makes it easy to create cute crafts like the owl above.
Each compartment is 2 inches wide x 1.9 inches deep and is 13 1/2 inches long in maximum. Perfect to organize all your components and keep them off he floor!

Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale with Large Backlit LCD and Weightless Technology(c) Review and discount coupon

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I don't know where you are on your journey to good health. Perhaps you have already found a great route or maybe you are still working your way there. If you are looking for a good tool I have one for you.  I have been working out for years and mostly have my eating (I don't like to call it a diet but you know what I mean) in a good place. It can be a challenge though. You need some help to get to a good place and stay me. It is not magic as some celebrity people might want you to believe.

A good way to stay true to the plan is with a scale. This is 2014 though and now you have some high tech, but easy to use options that keep you on track even on the go. The Weight Gurus scale comes with a free smartphone app that works with iOS and Android.  The Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale was specifically designed to encourage weight loss. The Free Weight Gurus smartphone App (iOS and Android) tracks progress and chart progress to help you reach your goal (smartphone not required for scale use). Weightless technology lets you manage your weight by how much you've lost instead of how much you weigh. With Weightless, you decide how to view your weight: by the number or weightlessly by weight change. This scale includes easy-to-read extra-large, extra-bright backlit display. A perfect option even if you are close to needing glasses like me!
Some key information about th Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale, Large Backlit LCD and :
  • Extra-large (4.3"), extra-bright backlit display
  • 400-lb capacity with +/- 0.1-lb resolution 
  • Non-slip, scratch-resistant feet
  • Connects with iOS and Android Devices (smartphone not required for scale use)
  • Free Weight Gurus smartphone App (iOS and Android)
  • Weightless technology lets you track weight by how much you weigh (e.g. 173.4 lbs) or by how much you've lost (e.g. -12 lbs)
  • Durable tempered glass construction
  • 4 AAA batteries required (included)
  • Supports up to 8 users

I like that the Weight Gurus scale was easy to set up and the app was easy to download on our iphones. It was great because my hubby and I both downloaded it to our iphones and we both can use it.  It is easy and I feel like we can be accountable even when we re out and about. I even had my mom download the app to her iphone.  She was here this past week and totally loved using the app and the Weight Gurus scale.  Now when she comes to visit she can use it and track her weight too. She is thinking about buying her own she loved the idea so much and found it easy to use. Now my mom is one amazing lady if you are wondering...she is no spring chicken (but hey, neither am I) but she looks totally amazing. She follows a healthy eating plan and exercises vigorously between the gym, walking, jogging, weights and yoga she looks 20 years younger. She always laughs because the staff at any doctors office she goes to takes a look at her chart and DOB and then looks at her and seems confused. One new technician even asked her...."Ummm, this must be an error with your date of birth...." She just laughed. If my mom you can use the Weight Gurus scale and the app then you can do it too! 

You can get more information by taking a peek at their website Weight Gurus and you can also follow them for the latest social networking updates on Facebook and Twitter

Become Gurus has even shared a special discount coupon for my readers and followers that is an awesome discount that's good until the end of June!  Use Coupon Code GETGURUS for an additional $10 off Amazon sale price.

Dead Sea Salt Deep Hair Conditioner Review #hairconditioner

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I have heard and tried a variety of Dead Sea products over the years and been really pleased with the skin care results but I never knew there were hair products too like shampoo and conditioners. Dead Sea Mud has been known for centuries for it's healing properties as you probably know. People travel from all over the world to come and experience the amazing results at the Dead Sea.  You probably are familiar with Dead Sea Salts and Mud since they have been featured in numerous magazines and on those high profile day time shows and even in nationally known newspapers. Dead Sea Mud truly contains the highest concentration of minerals found in mud anywhere in the world. It is pretty exciting that the benefits of Dead Sea mud and salt are now available in shampoos and even deep conditioners too.

Adovia's Dead Sea Deep Hair Conditioner is specially formulated with natural ingredients including 21 Minerals essential to proper skin and hair function.  It really leaves your hair looking super hydrated and healthy with that silky feel that we all love. Regular use helps to reduce the appearance of dandruff and dry, flaky scalp. It also has aloe vera to further nourish the scalp and hair.  I think it works best when you use it with the Dead Sea Salt Shampoo.  That is what I did.

Dead Sea Salt contains more than 21 skin and hair rebuilding minerals such as magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. All of these special ingredients bring deep hydration and moisture to the scalp.  This is an excellent option to help relieve itching and flakiness. Think about how all these essential minerals aid in proper skin function and help to regulate moisture retention and hydration.

My thoughts and experiences:  I did use the Dead Sea Salt Deep Hair Conditioner following the Dead Sea Salt Shampoo. I was surprised at how nicely this conditioner softened my hair and helped it dry without frizz.  My scalp felt good and I noticed my head did not feel dry anymore. My hair was super easy to style and as I continued to use it I noticed my scalp felt healthier with the combination. The winter was so long and dry I actually was experiencing flaking which was unusual for me. I noticed the flaking has stopped and my scalp looks good. I will continue to use both the shampoo and conditioner since it works well for me.

100% Organic Argan Oil Review #VoilaVeSkinCare

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
My hair can be a real challenge to care for with all my issues. I try not to wash it too much...maybe 2 times a week.  I use a gentle, sulfate free shampoo and conditioner but it still looks dull and I feel guilty every time I use my hot brush or blow dryer. I have been moving more towards natural products though.  The timing was perfect when I heard from VoilaVe about trying out their organic, natural Argan Oil for hair and skin. They shared with me that VoilaVe™ Organic Argan Oil can bring back dry, weak, and lifeless hair. It can even impart fresh life into dry cracked skin and cure hard brittle nails.  Since I suffer from all three issues I was the perfect person to try it.

My hands are always so dry and of course my nails and cuticles. I have to say I don't help the cause. I will wash dishes with no gloves instead of just throwing them in the dishwasher.  If the bath needs a touch up between the visits from the housekeeper I am always too lazy to use gloves. I know. I have bad, really bad habits that don't help the cause. My mom always tells me. But at least I know there is something that can help my dry hands and nails now that I know about VoilaVe™ Organic Argan Oil.
The company calls this an Incredible Miracle Oil in a Bottle.  I have to say it is pretty close. I love that VoilaVe™ is 100% Certified Organic Moroccan Argan Oil.  I have been using a few drops on my damp hair after my shower and then styling my hair as usual. It looks much healthier and shinier. I also like that I can just rub it into my hands and cuticles anytime of the day to moisturize them. I like to use it on my hands and nails at night too....I notice they look so much better in the morning and it lasts all day..even with my poor hand care habits.  VoilaVe™ Organics 4oz Argan Oil is 100% CERTIFIED Organic and completely ECO and USDA Certified which is very comforting. I can use it on my hands and not worry about slicing up an apple and eating it for example. No worries!

I was happy to hear that  VoilaVe™ Organic Argan Oil is available on Amazon since that is where I buy much of my health and beauty these days. I really like that this is 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil. It makes me feel more comfortable about using it on my skin.

VoilaVe™ Argan Oil can provide some of these amazing benefits:
  • Strengthened, Vibrant Hair
  • Stronger Roots
  • Brilliant, Hydrated Skin
  • Stronger Nails and Cuticles

Organic Morocco Argan Oil Hair Treatment Mask Review #purearganoil

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
My hair tends to be dry and definitely has some damage from hot tools. I can't help it. It is frizzy and I color it (gotta cover those grays!) and then there is those twice a year keratin treatments too. Not the best recipe for healthy looking hair. I need some options to help it look and feel softer and smoother.  I use conditioner every time I wash it and I have tried a bunch of deep conditioners with various results but nothing stellar. I just would like to see some shine and reduce the frizz.

I had the opportunity recently to check out an organic option for hair care which I was excited about.  Organic Morocco Argan Oil Hair Treatment Mask is a a natural option that the company tells me will get your hair looking and feeling better fast. They shared with me that this is an intense, hydrating hair mask that helps to restore and soften dry and overworked hair.  It can bring dull, tired hair back to life without weird chemicals or funny ingredients that make you worry.  A great solution I was thinking to myself.
It was super easy to special equipment required. After washing and rinsing your hair, do like I did and just apply a generous amount of this pleasant smelling treatment to your hair from roots to ends and leave it in for 10-15 minutes while you relax in the tub or read a book.  I took the opportunity to do both. Rinse it off and style as usual.  I noticed my hair was softer and shinier right away. After I dried it and styled it there was a definite difference. Even my husband commented that my hair looked great. I would keep using this great hair treatment especially in the summer months with the beach and sun....keep my hair looking beautiful.

Pure Organic Argan Oil for skin care review #arganalchemy

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I really prefer organic and natural beauty products these days. It used to be a real challenge to find good organic beauty care but with Amazon, it makes it so much easier! I recently had the opportunity to try out a wonderful skin care product from Argan Alchemy that is USDA organic and works beautifully. Who knows what is in so many of those drugstore products out there?  I like that with Argan Alchemy I know that I am getting a 100% pure and organic Argan oil imported from Morocco, the native land of the Argan tree.

One of the things that is also important to consider is who benefits from the beauty products you buy.  I love that Argan Alchemy organic Argan oil is produced in women-run cooperatives, and is hand pressed in the traditional way. There are no added chemicals or fragrances, just pure and natural Argan oil.  That makes me feel good about using it everyday to keep my skin moisturized and beautiful.  It is easy to use too....I just squeeze a few drops out morning and night and gently blend into my face and neck. I wake up in the morning looking fresh and dewy.

My family and friends have been more interested in natural beauty care since I have introduced them to the fact that it is an option that can really benefit all of us.  The beautifully labeled bottle Argan Alchemy contains 2 ounces of the oil, and comes with a dropper.  My mom and sister love beauty gifts and this would be a lovely gift or part of a super beauty gift basket for anyone. It is already on my list for gifts!

The elegant package makes a great gift idea, or a treat to yourself. You can purchase this wonderful and pure organic argan oil on Amazon as well. There is even a $5.00 off coupon when you use discount code GLFV45YX

Wella Brilliance Treatment for Fine to Normal, Colored Hair Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

My hair gets so dry sometimes and I don't know what to do with it. I color it, highlight it, use keratin twice a know the whole routine. It isn't so easy on my poor hair. I didn't even mention the hot tools yet either. There are some good options out there to help your hair look and feel softer, shinier and keep the color fresh. I recently had the opportunity to try out one of them from a well known and time-tested brand that we all know and love. Wella Brilliance Treatment is a specialized option to repair fine to normal colored hair.

My hair is actually fine to normal...sometimes a little more on the fine side but pretty average in thickness.  One of the issues I often encounter is that my color fades quickly even though I only wash it 2-3 times a week. I was hoping that I would see my hair color looking fresher in addition to making it softer and shinier as Wella had suggested. 

It was very easy to use. I shampooed it as usual with my gentle color safe shampoo and then applied the Wella Brilliance Treatment. I left it in for 5 minutes as the directions suggested. I rinsed it out and styled it as usual with my round brush and a blow dryer. I liked how the Wella Brilliance Treatment quickly made my hair more vibrant. The color just looked fresh and definitely more vibrant after using it.  It felt soft and had the pretty flowing kind of curl at the bottom that I really like but don't always get even after a good blow dry.  I would use Wella Brilliance Treatment for Fine to Normal, Colored Hair with Diamond Dust on a regular basis to keep my hair soft and the color fresh.

It comes in a 5.07oz container.

Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Silicone Quaternium-22, Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Bis-PEG-4 Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, PEG-4 Dilaurate, PEG-4 Laurate, C12-13 Pareth-23, C12-13 Pareth-3, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, PEG-4, Diamond Powder.

Konjac Facial Sponge w/ Bamboo Charcoal I love that it is 100% Natural & Eco-friendly {Review}

Whether you are 16 or 56 it is always a good practice to take excellent care of your skin. How can you do that naturally though? We all know you need to exfoliate the skin gently but how is the best way to do that while trying to remain eco-friendly?  I recently had the opportunity to try something new that truly gently cleans the skin and leaves it refreshed. This special something is the pureSOL Konjac Sponge.  Konjac is actually a moisture rich, naturally akaline plant fiber. A very cool plant sponge cleanser! A perfect cleansing tool to balance the natural acidity of the skin's impurities and oils. The pureSOL Konjac Sponge has a unique net like structure which gently massages the skin, breaks down dirt.  In turn, this action stimulates blood flow and the new growth of fresh skin cells. I found it to be an easy and simple way to get my skin super clean and refreshed after a long day or work and a workout.

I love that the pureSOL Konjac Sponge is unbelievably soft and gentle. My skin can be fussy and sometimes sensitive but the Konjac Sponge was really gentle. It is effective and gently cleans all skin types! It is made of 100% pure vegetable fiber and processed without any coloring or additives. This really makes it great for hypersensitive skin.

The pureSOL Konjac Sponge offers so many benefits:

IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE: pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge gently exfoliates while deep cleansing and removing any toxins and impurities, leaving you with a radiant complexion. It is extremely soft and gentle for everyday skin care. Great for all skin types.

BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN: The natural woven fibers of the sponge gently massage the skin and stimulate blood flow. It detoxifies and encourages skin renewal while balancing the skins pH, leaving your skin extremely clean and refreshed.

PREVENTS SPOTS, BLACKHEADS AND BREAKOUTS: The added BAMBOO CHARCOAL contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins and other harmful chemicals from your skin. You will see your pores getting smaller, tightening and brightening your skin.

100% NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY: Why compromise your health with products that contain harsh chemicals and additives on your skin? pureSOL Konjac Sponge is completely natural, eco-friendly and free of parabens, sulphates and chemicals. It is biodegrade, cruelty free and vegan. After use, you can compost the sponge and feel good about the environment....even better add it to your flower pots or your garden! At pureSOL even their packaging is 90% compostable.

EASY-TO- HANG SUCTION HOOK: A must have for you Konjac Sponge.  Perfect for hanging in a well-ventilated space so it's dry and ready for you to use the following day. No more searching for something to hang your pureSOL Konjac Sponge on!

A review of Gold Elements Nail Care Supreme Kit

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I recently heard about the luxurious line of skin care treatments from the Gold Elements line.  Gold Elements offers an amazing array of advanced and effective cosmetic treatments and even customized facials.  The line provides you with over all treatments to the skin and now even the nails. I appreciate how the Gold Elements facial care products aids the reduction of wrinkles and helps brighten the complexion. This is a complete line that was  inspired by advanced cosmetic research. All the products contain effective age defying ingredients combined with trace elements of actual gold to give a youthful appearance to the skin.  I think that is totally novel in skincare to include real gold to enhance the skin.

I recently had the opportunity to try out their new Gold Elements Nail Care Supreme.  
The Golden Nail Kit Supreme provided a totally stimulating beauty treatment for the nails

My nails look amazing after using the kit for the past week. I see a big improvement in how they look. My hands look moisturizing and youthful. Before using the kit my hands looked so dry and my nails were constantly brittle. My cuticles were always a problem but now they look really nice. I have been faithful with using the cream and oil and it has made a huge difference in how smooth my hands look and feel.

These are all the items included in the Gold Elements Nail Care Supreme Kit:

1. Hand and Nail Cream:
   A gentle, protective and soothing hand cream to protect
   your skin.

2. Cuticle Oil:
   Deeply soothe, moisturize and nourish the cuticles. Ideal
   when buffing your nails, your cuticles will be softer and
   your nails stronger looking.

3. Nail File:
   To smooth away rough nail edges and shape your nail
   faster and easier.

4. Buffing Block:
   A fantastic buffer which grants a beautiful gleam to your nails
   and assists in stimulating the blood circulation underneath
   your nails, which encourages healthy growth.

Try it out for yourself and see the difference it makes in your hands and nails. I am a business professional and it really is important to look the part every single day. I don't always have time for that mani-pedi but with Gold Elements I can treat yourself anytime I like and feel like I am in luxury.  It is important to take care of your skin and nails..people notice.  This is an easy way to give yourself some luxury.

Beauty Box 5 May Subscription Box Unboxing Event @beautybox5 #bb5fave

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
I really like trying new beauty products from lipsticks to creams and washes and even scent.  Sometimes I look at a product in the store but just can't pull the trigger because I worry it might not be for me and I don't want to spend all that money if I don't know that I really like it.  Every once in a while you get lucky and the store has a sample or perhaps a beauty company sends you a sample and you get to try it first. The ideal solution for all of us. Beauty Box 5 understands that and that is why they created their great sampling box program. Beauty Box 5 is an amazing subscription beauty box sampler that is delivered right to your doorstep (or mailbox) filled with a combination of 5 brand new cosmetic samples monthly, quarterly or annually. You can start out at just $12 a month or save more by getting a longer subscription. Signing up to receive Beauty Box 5 each month is a great new way for anyone from teens to moms to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you.  Each month they include tips and tricks for the products on the back of this little card below to help you get the most out of your beauty samples each month.

Beauty Box 5 shared with me that they are always looking for the inside scoop on hot new items to make the best matches for your own personal taste and lifestyle.  The prices are reasonable too. You can get a Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 or annually for just $99.  Shipping is always free.  A fun way to check out lots of the new beauty stuff out there without a whole lot of $$ investment. The great part is that if you like something, you can just up and buy the full size item, right?  Much better than buying a full size you-know-what-beauty-item and paying a fortune and then it sits in the makeup bag gathering dust because it doesn't work for you.

Beauty Box 5 mixes it up with their brands and keeps things adventurous. They source from a mix of niche, luxe, regular drugstore, vegan and eco-conscious brands.  One month you might get hair care, nail care, makeup, skin care, fragrances or even beauty accessories or a mix of any of the above.  I love the suspense!  You will get a carefully curated blend of travel, full-size and deluxe samples from their most current collection.
I just received the May Fresh and Focused Box this week.  The team at Beauty Box 5 knows that sometimes we all need a little beauty boost. Perhaps we are daydreaming about the beach and summer fun or pinning our summer outfits on our Pinterest boards but we need to stay in the zone at least to get through the workday! Beauty Box 5 is here with a few pick-me-ups to keep you going.  Here is the scoop on the fresh goodies that were in this cute little box:

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths are just what I need to stash in my purse post-gym or anytime I need a to feel a little more confident. Those HOT spring days when I am working and running all over?  Already here and I tried Ban Total Refresh and they are so cool and refreshing. My skin feels clean and fresh after using these. After my yoga class they worked well enough so I could run to the grocery store and not feel confident. Sometimes I love to get together with friends after work and it is a challenge to freshen up and I see these as a good solution. Right in the purse or tote bag for me! Retail:  $2.97 for 10 cloths

The next product in the box totally new to me and perfect for spring...Harvey Prince Hello is a really pretty floral fragrance that kind of made me go, "Aaaaah, yes!" A really light citrus scent with some of my fave fruits and flowers:  mandarin, grapefruit, forsythia and plumeria all suggest spring in a friendly and sweet way.  The cute little sample size I received is perfect for traveling and will be toted on my upcoming business trip. I will be looking for the full size bottle of this fresh spring scent because at $55.00 for 5.7oz it is an excellent deal. 

H20 Plus Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel is the perfect way to deep clean your skin and get it really clean. I love the scent and the fact that it is totally oil free. It got all my makeup off including the long wear lipstick. One huge benefit is that this cleanser also gently exfoliates while cleaning all the impurities off your skin. I feel good about using products with marine botanicals and sea salts. It makes my skin feel and look super clean after a warm day. It is  $18.00 for 120ml.

CATTIVA Precisione Eye Liner is a waterproof eye liner that totally made my eyes pop. It went on super smooth and I love how it retracts so there is minimal issue with getting squished when you close it. I have used it with a light touch for day time and added more for a more smokey evening eye kind of look. My husband thought I looked amazing so it worked for me.  It has some serious staying power even through a few drinks and a long dinner. Bonus is that it contains no parabens. $20.00 for 0.012oz .
The last item in this exciting May box for a little bit of extra fun is the MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask. If you have never tried this before you are in for a total treat. You can squeeze this baby in during lunch or before a big night out. I used it before a big date night with my hubby. Totally paraben free, vegan friendly and easy to use. They are even biodegradeable. I LOVE this. You open it up, apply it to a clean face and smooth it on. It looks silly but feels delicious. Leave it on 10-20 minutes and you look so refreshed like you just had a facial. $5.99 for 1 mask

Another amazing box full of beauty fun from BeautyBox5. Don't forget to join Beauty Box 5 and get in on the fun.  You can spread the news on Instagram and have an opportunity to win full-size versions of these products too! Don't forget to tag @beautybox5 and #bb5fave so they know who was spreading the love!

Moroccan Rose Water For Face, Skin & Hair

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I love to try new beauty products. I recently heard about Moroccan Rose Water.  It is an excellent product for your face since it works for all kinds of skin. My skin is sometimes on the dry side so I like that this works as a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and even replenishes the skin.  It is 100% pure and natural rose water which naturally balances the pH level of the skin.  instaNatural shares with me that Moroccan Rose WAter can actually increase the strength of skin cells.  I have noticed how it can calm skin irritations too

After working in the garden all day yesterday I used the Moroccan Rose Water and my skin calmed right down.  It can even replenish your skin if you spent too much time outdoors in the sun. Of course you should always remember your sunscreen but you can always miss a spot here and there. You can dab the rose water on it to help with the sunburn.  

I was also excited to hear that it can help make the hair soft and shiny too. A great all around product to add to your skin care arsenal. You can find instaNatural Moroccan Rose Water on Amazon too. By the way, if you are looking for a new moisturizer I have also found that Niacinamide Cream 5% Vitamin B3 Serum works really well along with the rose water.
