No B.S. When It Comes to Skin Care

No B.S. When It Comes to Skin Care
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s Earth Week and it’s time to clean out my skin care drawer. Everyday there’s a new ad, with new products promising to do right by my skin. Promising to meet the needs of each issue I am facing AND I am all for it. But I am ready to cut out some of the toxic components that really aren’t needed. Here are some of the products I have found myself reaching for these days.

A Different Kind of Electric Toothbrush? We’re In.

A Different Type of Toothbrush? We're In.
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve been using my current style toothbrush for several years now. Just buying a new one every few months to replace it. Lately, I haven’t been as thrilled with how “clean” this style is getting my teeth. So I went on a search for something that could truly clean my teeth and leave me pain-free from sensitive gums in the process. I found a toothbrush that competes with well-known competitors AND partners with A Reason to Smile, a nonprofit organization that supports dental health in Africa. Are you ready to kick your toothbrush to the curb yet?

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.

Fill Your Home With Clean and Safe Scents

Beauty Brite Disclosure

One of my favorite things to do is fill my home with some great smelling scents. It really sets the mood for whatever you had in store for that day. I love walking into a room that smells like cinnamon or fresh lemons. It can really encourage a more positive mindset. Not only for you, but for the others living under the same roof as well.

Yet here’s a thought. For years, I have been purchasing ‘big brand names‘ of candles, room sprays and other chemically created ‘air fresheners’ to fill my home. Not once did it ever occur to me that the ‘smells’ that I am filling my home with were toxic.

Have you ever thought about what’s in your air fresheners?

Gift Ideas For Your Favorite Guy

Gift Ideas For Your Favorite Guy-Molton Brown's Tobacco Absolute Collection-Coby CMB-102-BLK Over The Ear Headphones with Built-In Microphone and Bluetooth Speaker

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Why is buying a gift for a guy so darn hard? I’ve been married for over twenty years now and for most gift-giving occasions that include my husband, I am stumped and have to wrack my brain for a gift idea. You’d think the longer and better you know someone that gift giving would get easier.

True, there are the go-to gifts that I will get him: a bag of Snickers, beef jerky, BBQ-related items, Star Wars stuff, University of Kentucky Wildcats fan merchandise, gift cards to restaurants or Best Buy. But, I can’t get him that stuff for every holiday! I quit buying him clothing long ago because he prefers to buy pants himself to make sure he gets the fit he wants, shirts I’ve bought him have hung in the closet unworn. I’m pretty much relegated to getting him new tshirts, underwear and socks at this point, and the occasional new bath robe or hoodie.

It’s not that he’s too picky, per se, or hard to please — it’s more that he has everything he wants and when something new comes out he often gets it for himself. This year, I found the perfect rocking chair at a local garden store and snatched it up for a Father’s Day gift for the hubby for this year. He’s been talking about getting one for several years but not done it yet. I had to hide it in my daughter’s closet so he wouldn’t stumble across it! I also got him some new BBQ tools and a few other little odds and ends (including some Bourbon infused beef jerky). He does love his bourbon!

This year I’m also adding in these two gems I found from COBY® and Molton Brown. The hubby is in the media business and can always use a good pair of bluetooth headphones. And, while not super crazy about it, he cares about his appearance so I thought some nice masculine-smelling bath and shower gel would be fun to stick in his gift bag for Father’s Day this year….

Fresh and Sparkling Cruelty-Free Makeup

Fresh and Sparkling Cruelty-Free Makeup

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As a makeup user, I’ve become familiar with plenty of brands–but as any simple trip to Sephora or Ulta will tell you, there are always more to find and explore! One brand that I’ve recently come across is Mally Beauty, a line whose creator has been a professional makeup artist for years (and worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez). Mally–the founder and namesake of the brand–promises that her brand is cruelty-free and “high-performance” for women on the go (of which there are many!).

When it comes to the beautifying process, a lot can be involved. Makeup, skincare, fashion…those are all key players in the stylish persona that is you.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Confession: I’m not much for the gym on a day-to-day basis. More often than not, my intentions to complete a workout have fallen flat before I’ve even stepped towards my sneakers! That being said, I do get myself up and out for the occasional exercise–and when I do, I like to be ready for the aftermath. Post-workout is also usually pre-workday for me, which means that I’ll be refreshed, sweaty, and not even remotely presentable. So what’s a girl to do? Turns out, YUNI has the answer!
