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!

The Best New Products For Women’s Health

The Best New Products For Women's Health
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s a brand new year and a chance to feel better than ever before! Because well-being and fitness are important to me, I love discovering new products that support women’s health.

I wear lots of hats as a wife, mom, daughter, and working mom. Most days leave me feeling drained and exhausted. It’s important that I have products in my life that help me look and feel my very best. 

I’m excited to share with some of my recent finds! Whether you’re a college student, stay-at-home mom, beloved Nana or a corporate mama, there’s something for every woman at every age.

For most of my life, I’ve struggled with the exact opposite of gorgeous hair. Naturally, I have very fine hair without much volume. After my son was born, I actually ended up losing a lot of hair! After that, I knew I needed to find a supplement that could help improve my hair.

I was really excited to check out Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies. I love the super cute heart shape, and the summer strawberry flavor is tasty! Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and contain zero artificial flavors. 

Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are comprised of a special blend of vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair, starting from the scalp and encouraging hair growth. Made of a power-packed blend of biotin, folic acid, B-5,6,12, Vitamin A,C, and E. These were incredibly gentle on my stomach and I could even take them on an empty stomach!

Low carb diets are very popular right now. Whether it’s Keto, South Beach, Paleo – many people are switching to a low carb way of life and reaping the benefits. My husband and I follow the Keto diet which can sometimes leave us feeling fatigued, especially when our electrolytes are out of whack. Ultima Replenisher has become a daily essential for me!

I can’t stress enough how well this product works! After a workout or a hot day, this is the perfect “pick me up,” as it replenishes electrolytes lost. Ultima Replenisher is vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, caffeine free, peanut/soy free, and sweetened with organic stevia. Simply add the packet to your bottled water, shake, and enjoy. I highly recommend the Cherry Pomegranate flavor, so delicious!

Rosebud Woman is a family-owned business that puts great care into the products they create. Every feminine health item they make is plant-based and gentle for skin. I also love that when I purchase from Rosebud Woman, a portion of their proceeds are donated to vetted non-profits who are supporting women and their families. 

I highly recommend Honor Regenerating Balm! It’s a great balm for women of any age, very gentle and nourishing for the most intimate skin. Honor Regenerating Balm improves skin resilience and accelerates skin repair. This has helped me greatly since becoming a mom. Applying Honor Regenerating Balm before baby helps reduce the risk of tearing during delivery. For current moms, it will promote faster healing after giving birth. For menopausal women, this will help greatly with frequent dryness. I recommend using this nightly to revitalize intimate skin, or it can also be used 10 minutes before a sensual encounter. 

Many of us need a little help getting our “groove” back after we’ve had children or reached a certain age. Arouse Stimulating Serum has definitely become one of my go-to products. If you’ve been feeling a lack of sensation, it will help enhance any sensual encounter. Using a natural stimulant, Spilanthes Acmella, it will deliver a gentle tingle to the most intimate areas. This luxurious serum stimulates, lubricates, plumps and tingles! 

These days, I’ve got plenty of aches and pains. I’d been searching for a natural source of pain relief instead of constantly reaching for the bottle of aspirin. I’ve heard wonderful feedback from friends that tried CBD products for pain relief. I loved getting to check out Muscle MX CBD Balm, it worked fantastic for me! Muscle MX CBD Balm is THC-free and made in the USA with all-natural ingredients.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate works at the start of your day, apply first thing when you wake up. Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate will help prevent any pain later in the day. I love to use this on the back of my calves and lower back.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Recovery is the perfect remedy for sore muscles. My husband swears by this stuff after a long day at work! It’s icy cool and feels so soothing anywhere I’m feeling tension or pain.

For additional muscle relief, the Rykr Roll is a unique handheld massager that gently applies accupressure to muscles. I love using Rykr Roll on my feet, calves, arms, back, and temples! Self massage is an effective method of pain relief that doesn’t involve costly pills or prescriptions with dangerous side effects.

Rykr Roll works on muscles to increase oxygen flow and improve blood circulation. In addition to relief for sore muscles, Rykr Roll also works to relieve symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these new and exciting women’s health products! Let’s make 2020 the year that we feel our best! What products have you been enjoying this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

Cleaning with LIVE BACTERIA?? Say Whaat!!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Probiotic Power To Restore Your Home’s Balance

So what exactly are probiotics?

Probiotics are living microorganisms that provide health benefits when used properly and enrich our environment.

When used in cleaning; probiotics are live bacteria that will attack only the harmful bacteria. This helps create a healthy balance between you and your home. Most cleaners claim to kill 99.9% of bacteria which can do more harm than good because it kills the good bacteria too.

One of the biggest benefits of cleaning with probiotics is that it is safe to use around children and animals. The cleaning strength is just as good as chemical based and are great on eliminating smells and even organic waste.

Think about it. When ingesting probiotics when you eat yogurt or kombucha, you are restoring the balance to your body. So why not do the same for your home?

A Truly Clean Beauty Line with  Young Girls in Mind
Beauty Brite Disclosure

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.

A Better Smile For A Better Future

A Better Smile For A Better Future
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When meeting someone for the first time your smile is the first thing they see. Sometimes though, that smile can be something that you want to hide. Dental health is so important, and now that I have children I’m looking to improve our whole dental health as a family. Now making a better smile for a better future. Keep reading to find out some great dental products that will keep your smile brighter and teeth healthier.

A Better Smile for a Better Future.

I’ll admit that up until recently I really hadn’t given much thought to my teeth or dental health. I’d brush them like I was supposed too but it wasn’t until my middle daughter had to have dental surgery at the age of 3 did I really start to reevaluate how I looked at my teeth and smile. I had always been so self-conscious about my smile because I used to get made fun of about my teeth. I want to be able to smile fully and not be afraid to show my smile now as I get older. That means taking extra care to keep my smile healthy.

Kansas Bonanno

My middle daughter was three when we first really noticed her issues with her teeth. Like my oldest daughter at the time, we brushed and flossed did everything we were supposed to but something just wasn’t right. She ended up having to have a tooth pulled and I swore that from that day we were going to invest in our dental health more and make sure that we were using great products to help keep our dental health up to top-notch.

Bamboo Toothbrush

The company I’d like to introduce is called TreeBird. TreeBird is a great company that works to make sustainable dental products. Created back in 2018, this company is changing the way we look at toothbrushes and floss. These bamboo toothbrushes are the perfect addition to any family. They have sturdy handles that are easy to grip, soft bristles that leave your teeth and gums feeling clean. Sized for both adults and children.

Silk Eco Floss

TreeBird also uses compostable silk floss instead of plastic floss. With the perfect hint of a minty taste, it has your breath feeling extremely fresh and clean. It comes in a glass jar that is refillable and even the packaging is biodegradable. These products by TreeBird are the perfect way to reduce your footprint and take better care of the planet. To get your amazing bamboo toothbrushes and floss check out their website, Facebook, or Instagram.

Which of these dental products do you think will be a perfect fit for your family?

Help The Men in Your Life Find Their Style

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every single morning, my sons and my husband roll out of bed, do their morning routine, and head out the door. Time and time again, I notice the one thing that they can care less to bother with is their hair. It’s almost as if none of the men in my life even bother to comb it!

Why is that? Is it only my boys? Can ANYONE else relate?

Maybe bedhead is in. (I really hope not)

I have purchased ‘gels’ and ‘styling creams’ but there is always a complaint about how sticky the products feel or ‘crusty’ their hair becomes. One of my sons came home from school upset one day because his hair turned white! Needless to say when this mommy asks him to style his hair, he is not having it. In regards to my husband, his answer is simply a ‘hat’.

:::sigh:::

Let’s set the record straight, the men in my life have great hair, especially my sons. Their mane is so thick and luscious, and to be honest, I am a bit jealous of their locks. I wanted to focus on my sons to help them find their own sense of style. They express themselves through their clothing, so why not their hair?

The Cut

First thing is first. The haircut. We were on a hunt for a barber that can style their hair based on face shape to give them a look they will love. The same buzz cut was getting old and to be honest my sons were not too thrilled with their haircut style.

We found the perfect barber who knew exactly what she’s doing. That’s right I said ‘SHE’. A rarity, but #LadyBarbers are starting to break that mold and leave their imprint on the barber scene. Natasha new exactly how to cut and style a young mans hair exactly suited to their face shape, wants & needs. Her credentials are astonishing, so she is a must visit if you are ever in the Waterbury, CT area.

My sons came out of the Gents BarberShop looking so handsome. They both had a nice low fade and their hairlines were cleaned up (FINALLY!). A perfect hairstyle for the winter. The best part, their hair was manageable so they can style it on their own. We just needed to find the right products to match their needs.

The Hair Product Hunt

As a family, we have tried so many products. There was always some issue. Whether the hold wasn’t there, hair felt stiff or a white cast was left behind; my sons wanted nothing to do with these type of products. It was something that was always an ‘uncomfortable’ concept for them.

BluMaan full size 2.5 oz hair products available in 5 different formulas for $21.50 USD each

This is where BluMaan came into our lives. I was not sure what to think about the pomades, creams and oils, but I thought let’s give it a try. First, I introduced BluMaan Discovery Styling Kit to my sons. They were curious as to what each product did. The packaging really had them intrigued, as did the hair product themselves. It was something they had never seen or used in their hair before.

Each container has .5oz of product.

BluMaan had five different formulas that came in a palm sized tub. Each served a different purpose for different types of hair. This was perfect to test and try to see which ones would be a good fit. I already knew my sons wanted something with a lighter hold, and BluMaan had products just for those needs.

The Five BluMaan Basics

The Original

The Original Styling Meraki was really unique. It wasn’t exactly a right fit for my boys at this point, but this stuff was real cool. It is a heavy, thick, creamy wax, that has a very strong hold and is not too shiny. This is perfect for longer and/or thicker mens hair that requires a little blow drying to style. As soon as baseball season hits, my younger son wants a ‘faux hawk’. The Meraki would be perfect to achieve that look.

Clay

The Hybrid and the Cavalier are both clays. The Hybrid is a favorite that my sons found easy to use. It did not leave their hair stiff and it looked so natural and perfectly styled. They were able to run the product through their own hair without my help. There were no complaints about stiffness or crunchy bits, which is exactly what we were looking for.

The Cavalier was a bit heavier and harder for my sons to work with. I recommend using this one while your hair is damp, if it’s dry, it will definitely tug at it. It had a super strong hold, but still had a natural look to it. If you have thick and/or curly hair, this would be perfect for you.

Clays in general are great to give your hair a fuller look and maintains any frizz you may have.

Paste

The Monarch, which is a paste, was another favorite. This product was creamier and easier to handle. It had a perfect hold that is great for school picture day. The Monarch was also perfect for combing back the hair. It did not look stiff, and you were still able to run your fingers through it.

Pomade

The final one is the Fifth Sample, which is a pomade. This one did not make it into the everyday wear category, but we had a lot of fun with it. The Fifth Sample not only held your slick back or mohawk in place, it also had this great shine to it. An interesting ingredient that sets this pomade apart from others, is that it’s water based.

My husband has used oil-based pomades in the past and it was tough to wash out. The Fifth Sample peaked his interest because of how different the ingredients were. He loved that this was so much easier to wash out compared to oil-based. A huge and unexpected win for the husband.

Pump Up the Volume

BluMann Ascend Volume Cream retails $23.00 USD

We decided to have a little fun with BluMaan Ascend Volume Cream. It came in an easy to pump bottle and has a great creamy consistency. We used about a dime size on damp hair, massaged it down to the roots and blow dried.

It required a little more work, but this was by far my favorite to use on my boys. Their hair had this gorgeous volume to it and looked completely natural. Best part, you could run your fingers through it.

Hair Health

My sons found their personal style, and some great products from BluMaan to go along with it. The one little teeny thing that I am always concerned about is if they really wash their hair well. BluMaan created an amazing product called Cloud Control, a hair oil, which can be perfect for this concern that I had.

Hair oils have been around for centuries and have some great properties. There have been claims that they can really slow down hair loss and help promote hair growth. They have also been known to condition, soften, and strengthen your hair. Personally, I adore hair oils. I use them often and love the nourishing look and protection it provides.

BluMaan Cloud Control Hair Oil retails $24.50

Cloud Control was extremely easy to use, and more importantly my boys did not fuss that there was ‘an extra step’. As soon as they came out of the shower, I added 4 drops to their hair and rubbed it in. THAT’S IT! My son’s hair has never felt softer and looked healthier. Not to mention their hair smelled incredible!

Routine

We are happy to say, we found a routine that our sons could get on board with. My husband and I think our boys finally appreciate the hair they have. It was a bit of work, but was worth it. First, we helped them find their style with the right barber (Barberess for our sons, thank you Natasha!). Then moved onto to finding hair products that worked for their needs and comfort. (Thankfully BluMaan gave us so much to choose from) Finally, we introduced a little extra ‘hair care‘ in their hygiene regimen. With some time and effort, my sons are finally discovering their unique selves.

Looking for the perfect gift for that special man in your life? Or need a gift for an aspiring barber or barberess? BluMaan has something for all mens styling needs and is perfect to keep in your barber kit.

Feel Good Products for 2020!

I want to use products that make me feel good and are good for me!  I look back over the last five years I wasted a lot of money, time, and space on products that weren’t worth it! I’ve been cleaning my home for the past month and feel good getting rid of just plain JUNK!  For 2020 I’m only going to use feel good products.

I felt like I needed to share with our readers on some products that are 2020 worthy!  

Inspirational Clothing-Feel good!

So there is this brand that I feel we all need to get behind in 2020. BRAVEHOODS- their mission is to give kids comfort and hope while they fight cancer. I love me some BraveHoods for many reasons, but the main one is for every item bought one is donated- so basically you are buying 2 for the price of 1.  

The hoodies are hecka comfy too! I’ve never been a pullover bulky hoodie girl, so I don’t own a lot of hoodies, BUT this brand I want them all.  Why…they are lightweight and super soft. I put mine on with jeans and boots then out the door I go. My daughter and I have matching ones, and OMG, we look cute.  When we wore them out one day, we had three people ask us where we got them. Of course, I shared who and why they need to get one too! 

People…in 2020, let’s try our hardest to GIVE BACK!  BraveHoods hoodies make a difference and are inspirational. By the way, they have donated 7,000 Bravehoods to kids all over the country. They are more than just a HOODIE! This is my go-to shirt any day! 

Feel Good and RELAX more in 2020!

2020 should be a chill year. There is so much chaos going on inside the home, and outside of our homes when I say chaos, I mean a lot going on! I have two teens, a grumpy hubby, and a spoiled pitbull.  

I know I need to relax more, so I choose the Social CBD Lavender CBD Hemp Extract All In One Vape Pen.  Now I’ve never tried a vape pen until now, and I love it. I take CBD oils on a regular to calm my anxiety, but this was a different experience that I enjoyed. 

It tasted like lavender- now don’t make that face- it tasted good. It was super easy to use- inhale, and the end lights up when you are using it. The vape pen holds up to 200 puffs – so this will last me a bit.  I take about two hits before bed, and my sleep has been amazing. Now there are more vape pens I think I need to look into like the- Focus (peppermint) and Revive (lemon or grapefruit)! 

Now let’s talk about my Harley- almost 3-year-old pit.  He is my cuddle buddy, but when we have company over, or I’m gone for hours, this guy gets super excited.  His anxiety level goes sky high sometimes, so even his VET suggested CBD drops, which has worked miracles with his jumping and barking. 

Harley LOVES bacon, so of course, I had to get the Pets Bacon Broad Spectrum CBD Drops for him. It is 100% hemp-derived Broad Spectrum CBD extract with fractionated coconut oil and all-natural herbs and spices. So no I’m not giving my dog anything that would harm him, it helps him- a couple drops in his food when I know I’ll be gone all day or when my kids’ friends are coming over- to ease the anxiety he feels- he is far more CHILLED with Social Pets. 

Bring In 2020 with a BANG!  Feel real GOOD!

Celebration of the New Year, we are cracking open a bottle of 9 Lives Wine! We had one bottle on Christmas Day, and oh my goodness, YUMMY! I’m not the biggest wine drinker, but on special occasions, I will take a sip or two. I prefer wines that cost under $20 because that’s just me, so 9 Lives fits in that price range- $9! 

  • 2017 9 Lives Reserve Sauvignon Blanc ($9.99)-This pale, straw yellow wine has a bouquet that boasts hints of grapefruit and peach. It is fresh and well balanced with attractive fruity notes.
  • 2017 9 Lives Reserve Malbec ($9.99)– Garnet red in color, with intense and fruity with subtle floral notes. Smooth tannins and a delicate, persistent finish.

In my area (Bay Area, Ca), I can get 9 Lives Wine at Total Wine & More, so do a search, and you will be able to pick up a bottle or two near you! 

So let’s bring in 2020 with brands that are amazing and inspire people! No more wasting your money on crappy products! The Beauty Brite team will suggest more feel good products in 2020!
