Help Santa remember Treats your Furry Friends this Year!

dog treats

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Our pets are treated as children and a huge part of our family. Currently, we have a Jack Russel named Sophie and a kitten named Trisha. I am unashamed to say that they both get wrapped presents from Santa and they both have a stocking on our fireplace. Sometimes, though, I have a hard time finding treats with natural ingredients to benefit their health. Personally, I have taken to using Hemp Oil and CBD Oil as natural alternatives to prescription medication and chemical packed salves. I wanted to incorporate this into my dog’s health as she has terrible allergies and itchy skin.

Moms: Self-Care Is Important too

Moms Self-Care Is Important too

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I am that type of mom who never takes a moment for herself. My to-do list is a mile long and I don’t know if I will ever meet the end of it. Self-care is certainly not on that list anywhere. Somedays feel like they are never going to end. Add 4 toddlers into the mix and it is a daunting task to accomplish even the simplest of things. As moms, we forget to tend to our self-care needs. You know the needs that extend beyond a quick shower, the leftovers our children didn’t eat from their lunch plate, and our for the third time reheated cup of coffee.

Another issue with being the Mom is that in every single aspect we put ourselves last. We forget about ourselves and how crucial self-care can be when it comes to those around and especially when it comes to spending money on ourselves. If you are anything at all like me, it takes 5 seconds to convince myself that it is perfectly acceptable to spend $10 on my children’s baby wash but it takes me days to convince myself that it is acceptable to spend $5 on my own body wash. I have the money. I am not lacking, I just prefer to save where ever I can which means cutting corners on the items I actually need or want. Clearance Rack? That’s me. Mega Sales Event? You’ll find me there and probably with a coupon if possible. 7th Heaven, however, makes it possible to treat yourself to a little bit of luxury while on the go AND without spending a lot of money in the process.

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.

Well, World Coconut Day (Sept. 2nd) may be over for this year, but I don’t know anyone who feels beholden to enjoy coconut-infused products only one day a year. Do you?

Coconut is a sweet ingredient that can be worked into everything from snacks and drinks to side dishes and entrees. And it has some pretty beneficial health benefits, too. Coconuts are full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, calcium, magnesium, potassium and amino acids. [read more]

Beauty Brite DisclosureI do love my coffee, and I’m always trying new flavored creamers. However, during the hot summer months, I don’t drink as much coffee as I do in the fall and winter.
