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.
I know we have all been there; kids are like tiny ticking time bombs just waiting to explode. Children are also nasty little creatures who all love to share their germs and sickness with everyone. I may have the answer to your problems. Have you ever tried Essential Oils on your children? I’ll Show you how to combat everything from tantrums to seasonal sniffles.
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.
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
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.
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
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.

Do you enjoy drinking tea? Or are you a regular coffee drinker? I personally drink only tea and prefer non-caffeinated, if available. Other people, for example my mom, are huge coffee drinkers though Mom does love a cup of hot tea when she comes to visit me.
This past week has been nothing but sickness in our household. I never realized just how sick little ones can get once their immune system has been compromised. It has been tons of fluids and home made dinners with plenty of left overs since my son is not up to eating much! You need to really be on your organization and storage game when this happens. The last thing you want to do is clean up food and kitchen messes along with your taking care of your loved one.
Great things are meant to be shared with friends and you lovely readers! Today I dive into the depths of my secret body cleaning products form the natural spectrum. Let me introduce you to Beessentials an innovative personal care line that just might change your beauty regimen! I assume we all want clean, smooth and healthy skin without all the added chemical ingredients that may or may not be harmful ( the jury is still out on a lot of “ingredients”).
