Drench Your Skin With Luxurious Natural Skin Care

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every single product I currently own has some sort of chemical that I can’t even pronounce. To top it off, I had spent a pretty penny on some of these ‘luxury‘ brands that made promises but no real results. I know I am not getting any younger; but my skin needs some TLC that is not loaded with chemicals. During my journey to discover the ‘best all natural skin care‘ I found something pretty amazing. The result, I am ready to toss my old skin care routine out the window, and drench myself in natural beauty.

My Favorite Anti-Aging CBD Beauty Routine

A couple of years ago, if someone would have told me that I would be using CBD beauty products in my daily routine, I would have looked at them weirdly. Now I can’t see my daily routine with anything else- just saying! 

I use Moon Mother Hemp products because they are high-quality and the purest CBD beauty products around!  It is organic and all about healing for the well-being of the body and mind. The older I get, the more issues I have with my skin.  Having a good skin/beauty routine will help with the wrinkles and aging process. 

Remember, CBD skincare won’t get you high because it doesn’t have the mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. Moon Mother Hemp products are made from USDA certified organic Colorado-grown hemp. That is all good, but does it WORK- is what you want to know, right? 

Quality care from Seed to Sale

Moon Mother Hemp Products= Anti Aging CBD Beauty

Weekly

Use the Nourish Hemp & Manuka Honey Mask.  I use it 2x a week, but you can use it daily too!  In the 4 fl oz, there is 500 MG CBD. The mask is a reparative, nourishing, and mineral-rich mask that will leave skin hydrated and glowing. 

Okay, I’m over 50 years old and when my husband told me the other day I was glowing- do you know that made me melt.  So I’m all in for this anti-aging mask that does wonders on my face! I tend to use the mask at night as a way to relax but also great for the morning before you get ready for your day.  

Every Morning

Use the Glow Skin Serum.  This had to come from Heaven!  Glow Skin Serum is a daily moisturizer for all skin types. This nourishing and balancing union of herbs infused in jojoba oil, Argan Oil, Rose, and our full-spectrum hemp extract provides a therapeutic and beneficial experience to help your skin GLOW!. 

If you have never used a skin serum, you are missing out!  This skin serum, though, is something special. I love how the serum makes my skin feel so soft and does glow. It takes away the redness and the puffiness I seem to get a lot of but lately just beautiful glowing skin! 

Every Night

Use the Renew Eye Serum before bedtime.  This eye serum works wonders for my bags in the morning.  I love to look in the mirror in the morning these days. The 35 fl oz 100 MG CBD is the bomb.  

The smile lines and puffiness disappear, so yes, I love the anti-aging serum—no more tired-looking eyes for me. I do have to say this is my favorite product, and I was super surprised how well this works.

CBD Beauty Products are IN! 

I know you want to know more and where you can buy these products so you can buy separately (above links) or buy 3 Part Beauty System Bundle, and you will be set! 

Why Use CBD Beauty Products?

  • Acne-Prone Skin
  • Wrinkles and Anti-Aging
  • Sensitive Skin

I’m over 50 now and I need as much help as I can with my skincare. My skin is in pretty good condition but I see my age creeping in so I want to slow down the process.

OKAY…with any CBD products, you should always do your research, and please read more about Moon Mother Hemp products.  Plus, I’m not a doctor, but I did try the products and use them daily, so I’m sharing how well it works for my needs.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life

healthier

Every once in a while I try out some new healthy food and drink options to see if they are something I could add to my everyday life. Recently, I have tried a new kombucha drink, healthy dark chocolates (because chocolate is life, am I right?), a new coconut oil for cooking healthier, and even a mushroom superfood drink powder.

I like variety and trying new products because it allows me to get out of my everyday rut when it comes to food and drink. So, here are my thoughts about the new items I’ve tried.

Om Mushrooms Superfood Drink Sticks

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

I might as well start with the one item that I was the most skeptical about. I mean, I like mushrooms … but as a drink? I was doubtful that I would like it, but intrigued enough to give it a shot.

I think it was pretty smart for Om to pair this superfood up with fruit flavors. Most people are used to enjoying drinks that have some degree of sweetness to them, and while mushrooms add a fantastic layer of savory flavor to many dishes they are not something I would sit down and eat just by themselves.

Varieties

Citrus Orange – Energy+

Lemon Lime – Energy+

Super Berry – Immune+

Mocha – Brain Fuel+

Strawberry Lemonade – Beauty+ (Hair, Skin, Nails)

I tend to like red fruits just in a general sense. So, it was really no surprise to me that I liked the taste of the Super Berry and Strawberry Lemonade flavors. I love chocolate and enjoy coffee, on occasion, so I was reasonably certain that I would enjoy the Mocha flavor (I added it to a few cups of coffee and really enjoyed that).

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

But, I’m not a huge fan of lemon lime or orange drinks. Which is a bummer, because I thought I might not like the Om versions, either, and I really wanted to since they were the two varieties which offer energy benefits. Lack of energy is something I’ve been struggling with as I get older. I tried both, and I think they both tasted great!

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

I like that Om Organic Mushroom Superfood Drink Sticks offer a variety of different types of flavors, to appeal to people who like different tastes. I love that the supplement powder is so portable and easy to carry with you everywhere. That makes it so easy to add into water or coffee or whatever you happen to be drinking for a healthy boost. And, it looks like these are good for just about everyone as they are gluten free and appropriate for popular dietary programs like Paleo and Keto.

Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

Speaking of health drinks, here is yet another variety of Kombucha that I’ve tried in the last year or so. Honestly, most kombucha drinks leave me wondering what all the hype is about. I get that they have health benefits, but I can’t generally get into the taste of some of them.

Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha is a bit different. First of all, these are canned drinks versus the other’s I’ve tried which were in glass bottles. I don’t know if that makes a difference in taste or whatever. But, I do know that this is the first kombucha that I have tried and liked well enough to consume the entire drink.

Second, though it is a healthy prebiotic drink, it comes in some definitely delicious sounding flavors: Apple Mint, Ginger Peach, Tropical Mango. I thought they each tasted pretty good, though the Apple Mint was my favorite overall. Not that I have to choose a favorite, but just in case you’re interested.

These drinks contain a certified organic, plant-based, prebiotic fiber called Xylooligosaccharides (XOS Fiber) which will nourish the probiotic bacteria that is naturally present in your gut, helping it to grow. 

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

While, the previous brands of Kombucha I’ve tasted have never made their way back into my home, I think Wonder Drink would be the one that I could see myself stocking in my fridge on a rotating basis with some other health foods that I like to have around.

Alter Eco Dark Chocolate

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

Chocolate.

Enough said.

It’s good. Buy these chocolates. You will not be sorry.

LOL — I don’t know what to say here. Chocolate is either good or bad, in my opinion. I’m not usually so black and white in my judgements. But, it’s true here.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

And these are good! Taste is everything when it comes to chocolate. I don’t care how healthy it’s made, if it doesn’t taste good I’m not going to eat it. Period.

Alter Eco uses dark chocolate (known to have health benefits), is organic and gluten free, and uses fair trade ingredients. All of these things make it even easier to enjoy one of my favorite snacks.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

My daughters are both interested in products that are healthy and that benefit people and communities over corporations, so they have both been interested in learning about the company behind these delicious chocolate bars and truffles and sampling the treats.

Salted caramel chocolates are my number one favorite overall. So, my personal favorite of the ones pictured here are the Salted Caramel Truffles. Of the chocolate bars, my fave would have to be the Crisp Mint.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

The chocolate in all of the products is smooth and very satisfying and the truffle centers literally just melt in your mouth! So, so good!!! You can’t really go wrong no matter which one you choose.

Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

I like to cook. Finding new and interesting recipes, ingredients, and stuff like that is a fun hobby for me. New cooking oils are something I have enjoyed exploring as they each have different tastes and health benefits.

One of the most recent new finds in our house is sesame oil. We love Asian foods, and the peanut-y flavor has made things like my daughter’s fried rice recipe a whole new dish!

Coconut oil is something I began seeing covered in the media a year or two ago and decided to try. I’m still experimenting and learning about different oils and what uses they have and benefits they offer.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil is the latest one to grace my pantry. It’s organic, non-GMO, and Keto certified and labelled as an organic superfood.

Small Changes To Make For A Healthier Life - Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha - Om Mushroom SuperDrink Sticks - Alter Eco Chocolate - Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil

I know, the other items listed are things you can eat or drink on their own, and coconut oil isn’t. But, I still wanted to mention it here since it’s a health food item that I’ve tried and have enjoyed using. I will, however, talk about it some more in another upcoming article about a new cookbook I’ve been dabbling in preparing recipes from.

It’s called Simply Real Eating by Sarah Adler. It’s all about using real food ingredients and preparing easy and healthy meals. One of the cooking oils talked about in her book is coconut oil, so I will be using this Nutiva Coconut Oil in preparing a recipe from Ms. Adler’s book to share with Beauty Brite readers. Keep a look out for that very soon!

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!

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?

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.

I don’t do holiday stockings for my pets every year. But, sometimes when I find cute stuff that I just can’t resist buying I’ve been known to do a gift bag or some kind of pet stocking for our cats and dogs. And, apparently I’m not alone. According to a 2015 Rover.com study, 95% of pet owners purchase holiday gifts for their animals.

I didn’t realize it was such a huge thing. But, I shouldn’t be surprised, I suppose. I mean, I buy things for my pets all the time — no holiday necessary.

Here are some great ideas for stocking stuffers or gifts to wrap for your four-legged fur babies, big or small.

And, while I’m at it, if you think the Christmas stocking featured here is cool you can make one of your very own. I made this Christmas stocking (along with a few others) for my kids several years ago with a free Red Heart crochet pattern. It was a lot of fun.
