How to Waterproof Your Phone

How to waterproof your phone 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A few years ago, I had a very funny conversation with my sister while she was on a family trip. She was stuck at the hotel waiting for my brother-in-law to get back from the Apple store because my little nephew had dropped daddy’s phone in the toilet. Needless to say, no amount of rice could fix the damage. To survive my nephew’s penchant for reading in the bathroom, they would need to waterproof the phone.

Give Your Spring Cleaning a Natural Refresh

 Give Your Spring Cleaning a Natural Refresh

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Whether we like it or not, the ritual of spring cleaning has been around for centuries. I’ll be the first to admit, whenever I hear the term “spring cleaning”, I roll my eyes. I mean we clean our homes all the time, why do we need a huge seasonally related overhaul. I especially dread the overpowering aroma of chemical cleaning products. There must be a better way, which is why I’m giving my spring cleaning a natural refresh.

Get More from Your Cleansing Routine

Get more from your cleansing routine 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Growing up I never gave too much thought to the type of cleanser I used on my face. As long as my face was clean I was happy. However, as I got older I realized I needed more than clean skin. I wanted a product that refreshed, hydrated, and treated my skin to some beneficial ingredients.  I now have it all with Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

 

Founded in New Zealand, Snowberry is all about creating premium natural anti-aging skincare. Their products are designed to combat the effects of free radicals, dehydration, and discoloration, just to name of a few. Perhaps this is why they won the 2011 Discover Beauty Award at Cosmoprof USA.

One of my favorite aspects of the Snowberry skincare line is the fact their products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors, alcohols, or petrochemicals. Every product is also dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals. Snowberry is also the first skincare company in New Zealand to receive the carboNZeroCert™ certification. This means they have a low carbon footprint and strive to be a more environmentally sustainable company.

After reading about Snowberry, I was excited to try their Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Toner

When you have sensitive, dry skin like I do, you want a cleanser that is gentle and doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. The Gentle Cleanse & Tone does exactly what its name says, cleanses and tones.

This is thanks to ingredients like:

  • Plant saponins from the nut of the soap tree
  • Kiwi fruit, kumquat and green pea protein extracts
  • Naturally humectant vegetable glycerin, vitamin E and oil from the Andiroba tree nut

Snowberry Gentle Remineralising Toner Swatch

Each time I use the Gentle Cleanse & Tone my skin always feels hydrated, replenished, and nice and smooth. I never have to worry about any skin irritation or that dry, tight sensation some cleansers cause.

 

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser

I also tested out the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser. Known as “the supernatural cleanser and makeup remover,” by Snowberry insiders, this cleanser uses highly concentrated oils to cleanse and re-hydrate skin.

The cleanser features a blend of:

  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Indian neem oil
  • Inca Inchi oil
  • Lingonberry oil
  • Coenzyme Q10

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser Swatch

Even though the Instant Deep Cleanser is formulated with oils, it can be used on all skin types. It worked well on my dry skin. I only need a few pumps to remove all my makeup and get my skin nice and clean. But what I love most is how my skin feels after I use the product; soft and smooth. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes, which is especially nice when I need to remove my eye makeup.

After using the Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and the Instant Deep Cleanser, my skin is getting more from my cleansing routine. It no longer feels stripped of moisture or dulled after cleansing. Instead, my skin is soft and smooth and has a nice healthy glow.
