Everyone wants to live a long, healthy life. And most of us wish we could do more to help the environment, as well. There’s seems to be almost too much information floating around about these issues. It can be downright daunting to make decisions about what we can easily and effectively do to better the health of our bodies and the world around us at the same time.

You could look at this from a glass half-full perspective and decide that there’s way too much information for you to ever adequately process it and make a truly informed decision. But, I propose a much more radical response. Take a step back and look at it from a glass half-full perspective.

Yes, there is tons of information available about how to live healthier lives and take better care of our bodies, homes, and the natural world all around us. The good news is that you don’t have to read or learn all of it to make a positive impact! [read more]

Products For Sensitive Skin
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Finding quality products for sensitive skin is always a struggle. Everything breaks me out, irritates my skin, and gives me a migraine. It looks me months before I figured out that my shampoo and conditioner were irritating my scalp and making my migraines worse. Even regular washcloths irritate my skin, and thankfully I’ve found washcloths for sensitive skin. After doing some research and seeing a dermatologist, I’ve found some great, affordable products for sensitive skin that really work for me.

Self-Care Is Totally Worth Your Time

Self-Care Is Totally Worth Your Time--Shir Organics-NaturaBrasil-Nature Lab Tokyo

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Personal care is important, not because it’s trendy but because we all are worth caring for, all of the time. In the hustle and bustle of daily life with all the exterior demands on our time and attention that being a woman entails it can be very easy to forget that. We often put everything and everyone else above ourselves in terms of importance, don’t we? Especially women, who care for everyone else — their parents, spouses, children, and friends — before giving their own needs more than a passing thought.

I’m certainly guilty of this passive and unthinking form of self-neglect at times. I mean, I apply sunscreen if I’m going to be out in the sun for long enough that I might get a sunburn. I apply lotion to my hands and arms pretty regularly. Though that’s mostly because my hands can get pretty rough from constantly washing them as I go through the average day during cleaning, meal prep, and caring for our various animals. I can’t even remember the last time I treated myself to something as simple as a hair cut, it’s probably been a year or more I’m sure.

There are a lot of different kinds of personal care products on the market to choose from. Products that address areas from skin care to hair care, internal health to physical fitness. Some are clearly better than others, but a large majority of what’s available is all very good and it can be a difficult task to weed through all of the advertising and information to make a choice about which brands to use.

The easiest area of personal care to address, I think, is taking care of one’s exterior, what others see when they look at us. That being our skin and hair. I mean, we all bathe and at least occasionally use nourishing bath products and perhaps apply body lotion afterward. These areas are where I’ve tried quite a few different products to support skin and hair care.

So, today I will be sharing the three most recent brands that I’ve been using and my thoughts on them. Since there are so many brands to choose from, it’s sometimes fun to share those that you might not find on the shelves of every pharmacy or mass merchandise retailer. Don’t you think?

And since I especially like trying new natural/organic products for personal care those will be what I share with you today. Brands you may not have heard of before like NaturaBrasil, Shira Esthetics, and NatureLab Tokyo. I hope you enjoy your introduction to these brands of skin and hair care and that you put yourself first and decide to try one (or more) of them for yourself. You deserve it! [read more]

I noticed that when I don’t eat as healthy as I should, my hair tends to suffer. I experience hair loss and breakage. I am pretty rough with my hair when it comes to combing through it after showering. It mostly has to do with my diet.

Give Hope with SoapBox

Give Hope with SoapBox

Beauty Brite Disclosure 

I bet you don’t give much thought to not having access to your shampoo, hand soap, or body wash. Like me, you probably take for granted you will always be able to have these products in your bathroom. It’s likely you don’t stress about just picking up more when they run out. For millions around the world, having access to something as simple as soap isn’t a given. This doesn’t have to be a reality thanks to Soapbox, a company giving hope with soap around the globe.

SoapBox with Mission

So how does Soapbox make a difference in the world? With every purchase of one of their products, Soapbox donates a bar of soap to those in need.

SoapBox Soaps Hope Code Locations

These bars of soap, made from recycled and sanitized hotel soaps, can help improve livelihoods and lives by teaching the importance of proper hygiene. In many places, life-threatening diseases can be spread because of lack of access to clean water and by not performing the simple act of handwashing.

To date, SoapBox has donated over 2 million bars of soaps to over 60 countries. You can actually see exactly where your bar of soap is heading because each SoapBox product comes with a Hope Code. I looked up all five of my Hope Codes on the website and was excited to learn I was helping families in Baltimore, Nepal, Cambodia, and India.

In addition to donating soap and employing hygiene ambassadors, purchasing Soapbox products also funds groundbreaking research. You can read more about all the good Soapbox is doing on their website.

SoapBox Soaps

SoapBox was kind of enough to send me their Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, Sea Minerals & Blue Iris Body Wash, and Citrus & Peach Rose Liquid Hand Soap and Bar Soap. Not only do these products smell amazing but they work amazingly well. I also really love that they are cruelty-free, made in the USA, and free of SLS, SLES, paraben, silicone and artificial colors.

SoapBox Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

Let’s start with my favorite products of my bundle, the Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I was a little apprehensive to use these at first because they are designed to nourish and moisturize. I have oily prone hair so many times moisturizing hair products don’t work in my hair.

This is not the case with Soapbox’s Coconut Oil line. My hair never felt or looked so amazing days after I washed it. I actually have to use less dry shampoo, which is a miracle. When I do use dry shampoo, it seems to work better because my hair is less oily.

Next up is the Sea Minerals & Blue Iris Body Wash. Infused with shea and aloe, the body wash helps to seal in hydration and leave my skin feeling lightly moisturized and clean. I really like the creamy, lightweight formulation and the addition of the sea minerals, which naturally detoxify my skin.

SoapBox Sea Minerals & Blue Iris Body Wash

Since I have dry skin, I’m curious to try SoapBox’s Coconut Milk & Sandalwood Body Wash, which is designed for deep moisture. I would recommend the Sea Minerals & Blue Iris Body Wash if you only need gentle moisture.

SoapBox Citrus & Peach Rose Hand and Bar Soap

Last, but certainly, not least is the SoapBox Citrus & Peach Rose Liquid Hand Soap and Bar Soap. These soaps smell amazing. Although I haven’t used the bar soap yet, I’m halfway through the liquid hand soap. This is how much I love it, plus I wash my hands a lot throughout the day.

Formulated with aloe, shea butter, and olive oil, these soaps are designed to provide much-needed moisture. I love that they remove dirt without stripping my skin of hydration. And even better, my hands smell incredible all day and all night.

I know I will be repurchasing everything I tried from SoapBox and trying more of their products again and again. It’s hard not to support brands who make amazing products and are on a mission to do good in the world.

Have you tried SoapBox products before? Which scent would you try first?
