Treat And Heal Your Skin Kindly

I never thought I would have so many breakouts as an adult, but it happens. As a single mom, I feel like my breakouts could be a result of stress and other factors. It’s just another reason to take better care of myself and focus on my health! When the seasons change, it is a great reminder to evaluate your skincare products too! Are you ready to treat and heal your skin kindly? We’ve got a few products to suggest!

When it comes to skincare tools, many people often wonder if they’re worth purchasing. Not because they’re expensive, but it’s whether or not they work. We’re all a little tighter with our money, and the products we’re buying must be worth it. I’ve never been one for using body brushes, so of course, I had to test out some of the brushes from Rengora to see if the hype is real.

Care For Common Skin Issues Care For Common Skin Issues Care For Common Skin Issues

Humans are a very diverse species. There are so many ways we are different from each other and an infinite number of ways to understand and address those issues.

One thing about us that is extremely interesting to me is how many different issues we have with caring for our facial skin. I didn’t realize until I got older myself and started having skin issues (resulting in researching the topic and reading about other women’s perspectives) how many different kinds of products there are and how many services can be utilized. It’s pretty mind boggling, honestly.

So, I won’t try to tell you which products are the best for each skin issue. You will have to do the research on different products for yourself based on your individual needs. My purpose here is to provide information on a few products that are new to me that you may be interested in looking into for your own personal use.

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!

Manufactured in Texas from ethically sourced wood, they are beautiful and morally-made. WHITL Woodworking also donates jewelry to the Women’s Job Corp that assists homeless women with finding employment. I love that because it’s a gift that’s fun to give and makes a difference!

WHITL-Wood-Working-earrings

For fall and the Christmas season, I enjoy wearing the Buffalo Plaid and Antler Earrings. Buffalo plaid is so popular now and the added little antler is the perfect compliment. From October through December, these earrings have been a great accessory because they’re so cute! They’re perfect for holiday dinners, bonfires, and Christmas parties.

The Leopard Print and Cross Earrings are one of my year-round favs! These are so sassy and girly, I just adore them! I proudly rock these at church, work, and even date nights!

For a bohemian look, the Maple Leaf Wood Earrings are a great accessory. These definitely attract attention because of the artistic and sophisticated look of them! In addition, the warm rust color is beautiful and pairs well with many of my black shirts and dresses.

In conclusion, I hope you’ve enjoyed some of these fun and unique gift ideas! They are trendy and should please any fashionista on your Christmas gift. Also, these options make a great present for yourself!

Essential Oils come to the Rescue with Healing Benefits

Must Have Products for Healing and Wellness

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I don’t hide my love for essential oils and all things ‘hippy’ and ‘crunchy granola’. If it’s natural or plant-based, it’s for me. At any given time, you can find a diffuser or two going full blast in my home; trying to knock out foul germs.

As someone who lives with Fibromyalgia, I constantly search for other natural products I can incorporate that won’t interact with my prescription medication. It takes very little for me to get sick but will take weeks for me to get better.
