Obtain PERFECT Oral pH with CBD Toothpaste & Mouthwash

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Natural, Organic, Safe & Effective

I need to be honest. I NEVER purchased natural and organic oral care products let alone using ones that contain CBD. I do have an eco-friendly toothbrush; but I use it with your basic brand name toothpaste. Sounds crazy & pretty backwards right? But it’s something I just started to look into. What I didn’t realize is that there are over 100 harmful and toxic ingredients in many of our oral care products.

Talk about an eye opener!

Have We Found the Perfect Lipstick Duo?

Swedish Jealousy Week - Weekend Lipstick Duo
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ll be the first to admit that I love when makeup products come in sets. It’s a great way to get multiple items at an excellent deal, and you’re getting the opportunity to try out a brand. So, of course, I jumped at the change to test out a lipstick duo that looked like the perfect pair for a day to night look.

About Swedish Jealousy

Swedish Jealousy is a new-to-me brand that created makeup for all skin tones. The duo who founded the company wanted to “bridge the gap usually found in makeup,” because they couldn’t share a tube of lipstick. They worked hard to create and test out dozens of lipstick formulas until they found the two perfect shades that looked incredible on both of them. 

The brand is Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, and Gluten-Free. Let’s take a look at the lipstick duo!

Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set

Not going to lie, I just about squealed when I opened this package and saw both of the lipstick shades. They’re wearable for both day and night looks and works well on all skin tones, which was important to the founders.

The Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set ($23.50) features Week, a nude rose pink, that you can apply to the lips without a mirror, and weekend, is a bold, yet wearable watermelon red. Both lipsticks are creamy and apply to the lips evenly. They’re highly moisturizing and will last throughout the day. However, if you do a lot of snacking and drink a lot of coffee or water throughout the day, you will need to re-apply, which is normal with lipsticks.

I wear Week a lot, and I have even received several compliments from people, even asking me where I got it. The price for these two lipsticks is reasonable and worth checking out if you’re shopping around for a new lipstick brand to test out.

A Truly Clean Beauty Line with Young Girls in Mind

A Truly Clean Beauty Line with  Young Girls in Mind

If your daughters are anything like mine, bath bombs have become a hit. Every time we walk passed the bath bombs at our local grocery stores, I know my girls are going to ask to buy one. And as a parent, I really want to tell the YES because this is something new and exciting for them. They have seen reviews on youtube that are partially to blame for this excitement. But I also know that not all bath bombs are made equally. At the ages of 3 and 5, I wanted peace of mind when I put them in the bathtub with a bath bomb included. I finally found a company that creates truly clean and cruelty-free beauty products with young girls in mind.

Fill Your Home With Clean and Safe Scents

Beauty Brite Disclosure

One of my favorite things to do is fill my home with some great smelling scents. It really sets the mood for whatever you had in store for that day. I love walking into a room that smells like cinnamon or fresh lemons. It can really encourage a more positive mindset. Not only for you, but for the others living under the same roof as well.

Yet here’s a thought. For years, I have been purchasing ‘big brand names‘ of candles, room sprays and other chemically created ‘air fresheners’ to fill my home. Not once did it ever occur to me that the ‘smells’ that I am filling my home with were toxic.

Have you ever thought about what’s in your air fresheners?

Are you ready to treat and heal your skin kindly? We’ve got a few products to suggest!

Is This Best of VOLITION Kit a Must Try?

VOLITION Best Of Kit Products

While I love being able to try new beauty products, I often hesitate when it comes to testing out new skincare products. Whether it’s a new or new-to-me brand, I’m wary about how my skin may react. When I find something that works, I remain loyal for a long time – or until something else comes along that works better. With that said, I couldn’t help but jump at the chance to test out some top products from the brand VOLITION

The Best of VOLITION Kit

The Best of VOLITION Kit is “nature’s gift for dewy, bright skin.” In the past, I ran like Forest Gump any time I saw the word dewy because my skin can get a little oily. Inside the kit are three full-size products:

  • Snow Mushroom Serum Water Serum for age-defying hydration
  • Celery Green Cream for pore minimizing moisture
  • Turmeric Brightening Polish for face and body

What’s helpful, the back of the box has information about the products, the ingredients, and how to use them. This comes helpful for people not familiar with the brand, products, or what’s in them. You should always be informed about the products you’re using.

Best of VOLITION Kit Review

I enjoyed using these products. The packaging is excellent, and I would place it on my vanity. The products do have a scent, but since it’s not the synthetic fragrance that I’m allergic to, I didn’t have any issues. If you’re like me and sensitive to scents, you should be okay with these.

Both the serum and cream are a thinner consistency that absorbs into the skin beautifully. After several uses, I noticed a little shine to my skin, we’re in winter so it’s a little on the dry side. The polish is your typical skin polish, except it’s not rough on the skin. I’ve used it a few times and not once did my skin get irritated because the grains were too harsh. I may have finally found a face and body polish that’s gentle to use on my ultra-sensitive skin!

I haven’t been using these a long time, but I do like how my skin’s reacting to them. Please note that no matter what brand I use, my skin doesn’t react as quickly to skincare products as others. It usually takes more than a month before I notice a difference.

If you’re in the market for new skincare to try, I do recommend this kit. It’s a great way to try the top-selling products at a discounted price. This kit retails for $70 ($100 value), and you can pick it up online or in stores at your local SEPHORA. If you sign up for e-mails on the brand’s website, you can get 15 percent off your first order, making this an even better deal!

Small, filler-type gifts are one of my favorite things about planning for birthdays and all the different holidays that we love to celebrate. Sometimes these small, inexpensive filler gifts will go into an overall gift basket. But, for Christmas they more often than not are destined for my kids’ Christmas stockings (unless they directly correlate with a larger gift).

For example, if I’m gifting a makeup organizer or beauty bag to one of my daughters, I might purchase bottles of nail polish/polish remover, nail files, eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow, makeup remover pads or other such items to put inside the organizer or bag before wrapping. However, if I’m not gifting a larger item like that, these smaller items will end up in their Christmas stockings along with the small treats or candies.

Some things I buy for stockings every year — a candy cane, chocolate candies like Hershey Kisses, a chocolate santa or reindeer, Christmas-themed suckers, etc. But, I truly thrive on finding totally unique items to also stick in there that I’ve never given before.

Here, I will be sharing some of the fun, unique items that are going into my kids’ stockings this year. They would also work great in gift baskets, too.

I can’t wait to see how they react! The first two items listed are snack foods. Since the holidays are inevitably full of sweet and high-calorie treats, I decided to share two snacks that are not only delicious and full of flavor but also healthy treat options! But, trust me, your loved ones won’t even know it because they will be so bowled over by the flavors.

Rudolph The Reindeer Poop Soap

I started volunteering in my son’s class a few weeks ago. I had no idea how much I would enjoy and appreciate helping out. This year, I am making an effort to be more involved. I already helped chaperone a field trip a few months ago and we had so much fun. I loved watching my son have so much fun running around! I plan on chaperoning any and all field trips I can! My son’s teacher and paraeducators are so appreciative of my help, which makes me feel good! Being in his class allows me to see and observe how and what they are teaching him. I recently made Rudolph The Reindeer Poop Soap and they turned out so cute! 

Rudolph The Reindeer Poop Soap

This year, I was looking for easy and affordable gift ideas for the holidays. I am so excited to share a fun recipe! The Rudolph The Reindeer Poop Soap is fun and makes a unique gift to give to friends, family, co-workers, teachers, and more!
