Get That Sun Kissed Glow This Summer With Hard Candy



This summer is the perfect time to keep your skin looking great at great prices.  Hard Candy has tons of great options available, but I’m totally in love with their glowing skincare items.  Whether you’re looking to illuminate or add a little bronze, Hard Candy has perfect options that won’t break the bank.


This Hard Candy Sheer Glow All The Way is fabulous!  This pearly, luminizing highlighter brings radiance to all skin tones.  Apply the cream highlighter to your face and body for a luminous, pearlescent glow.  Every shade in the range is infused with real 24 karat gold, so your look will really sparkle.  The light, airy formula applies evenly to face and body without streaking, and dries onto skin so that it will not rub off on to clothes.  To use, simply apply a desired amount to the high points of your face: cheekbones, brow bone, and top of the nose.  On your body, apply as a highlighter to collarbone and shoulders; or apply as a bronzer to your entire body for a sun kissed glow no matter what season it is.  Glow All the Way is available in sheer, radiant, and tan shades. The Tropical Tan shade is formulated with a sunless self-tanner to gradually give you an all-over, lasting, bronzed glow.  I live in Arizona so during the summer my skin tone gets a few shades darker after spending so much time out at the pool.  I love the variety of shades offered in the Glow All The Way line…I can keep wearing my fave look all year long!


Glow All The Way is another fabulous line with great results you’ll love at a fraction of the department store prices.  Wear them the same way as the Sheer Glow All The Way for great looking skin all day long.  I really love the Doll Face (pink bottle), it highlights your skin tone with a hint of rosy color to create a beautiful, youthful skin tone.  As a tired, 30something year old mother of 3, I need all the help I can get and Hard Candy is my go-to fix for my tired skin.

Whether you’re looking for great skincare this summer or just plain fabulous eyes, lips, and nails, Hard Candy has everything you need to stay looking great all summer long.

Get Squeaky Clean This Holiday Season With Softsoap Limited Edition Body Washes #Review


Softsoap has long been a brand that I rely on to help keep my family clean.  When a company has been around as long as Softsoap, and has succeeded in the way that Softsoap has, you know they’re a company you can count on.  Needless to say, when I got the opportunity to try out some of the limited edition body washes for this holiday season I was so excited!  What a fun way to encourage my kids to wash thoroughly while still being able to enjoy the holiday scents for myself as well!


From now until February 2017 you can delight in these limited edition scents that will leave you feeling the holiday spirit all season long.  Rehydrate this winter with Softsoap and say bye-bye to dry, itchy skin!

The Vanilla Creme is my absolute favorite!  the scent is light but lasts all day and smells AMAZING!  I should’ve seen this one coming, but my kids took over the Peppermint Meringue bottle.  They can’t wait to hop in the shower in the morning and lather up so they can smell like a candy cane all day long.  Both of these limited edition scents are true to Softsoap fashion and will leave your skin feeling soft, silky, and luxurious.

With Softsoap by your side you can stop sweating the small stuff and worry about what really matters…quality time with friends and family this holiday season.

Flawless, Hair-Free Skin With Nair #Review


Since 1940, Nair has been a trusted hair removal option for many of us women.  With amazing product after amazing product being released all the time, I was super excited when I got to try out a few Nair products I hand’t tried before.


For those who don’t like waxing, Nair Nourish With Japanese Cherry Blossom & 100% Natural Rice Bran Oil has a couple great options.  The Nair Nourish Shower Power works while you shower so there’s no inconvenience of many extra steps and time consuming processes.  The application is easy, and the specially designed sponge helps with even coverage and little mess.  The look and feel of your skin improves after use, so say bye-bye to dry, dull skin and hello to flawless looking legs.  The Nair Nourish Sprays Away is another great wax-free hair removal option.  The spray allows you to cover the desired areas precisely with no mess.  Results last DAYS longer than shaving so you can spend more time enjoying life and less time removing hair.


Nair Wax Ready-Strips are by far the best wax strips I have tried.  These wax strips are the ONLY truly ready to use wax strips.  No need to warm with your hands before use, peel the strips apart, apply, and remove the hair…it’s that simple!  I really love the amount of strips included in one box.  The strips are reusable for multiple passes on your legs so you can really get the most out of them.  When previously using wax strips the box didn’t even contain enough to fully wax both legs.  With the Nair Wax Ready-Strips Body I was able to use only 1/3 of the box and both of my legs were fully waxed and silky smooth.  The Ready-Strips are available for Body and Face & Bikini so you can achieve hair free skin everywhere!

Care For Your Family With Puracy #Review


When taking care of a new baby, it’s only natural that you want to care for your little one as best as possible.  Puracy has a great line of products that are natural and organic.  Puracy’s products are not only effective, but good for you, and good for the environment.  How could it get any better than that?

Puracy (1).jpg

Puracy sent me a few products to try out and I’m so happy they did!

Puracy (2).jpg

The Natural Laundry Detergent was developed by top doctors for sensitive skin and allergy sufferers.  You wouldn’t think something like laundry detergent can be painful for those with sensitive skin, but as a mom to a toddler who has eczema, I can promise you, a good laundry detergent is essential.  When you’re taking care of a new baby (or busy household) you don’t want to waste time at the washing machine measuring out laundry detergent.  The pump top helps eliminate measuring, and helps you avoid those messy spills.  I live in a rural desert area where we do run graywater from our washer out to one of the trees.  The Puracy Natural Laundry Detergent is safe for graywater or septic tanks, making my life much more simple having to research whether I can use it on a graywater system or not.

Puracy (3).jpg

The Puracy Natrual Baby Shampoo & Body Wash is probably the most soothing clean your little one will ever experience.  It’s hypoallergenic and toxin-free so you can use it on baby without worrying if it will irritate their sensitive little skin.  Something you might not expect to see in the ingredients is sea salt.  Sea salt helps to naturally hydrate and keep baby’s skin balanced.  I tried the Natural Baby Shampoo & Body Wash on my toddler and her skin felt amazing.  No eczema flares after use, and her skin looked the best it has in a long time.

Puracy (4).jpg

What better way to follow up a bath with Puracy Natural Baby Shampoo & Body Wash than by using Puracy Organic Baby Lotion?  The Organic Baby Lotion was created by both doctors and trusted parents.  This lotion is enriched with Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and Shea Butter for deep moisturizing without residues or greasiness.  It is hypoallergenic so even the baby with the most sensitive of skin can feel the silky goodness of the Organic Baby Lotion.  The natural lavender and grapefruit essential oils help calm and relax baby so you two can enjoy your time bonding.

Puracy (5).jpg

It’s important for baby to be able to venture out into the big wide world, but like me, you’re probably worried about the creepy crawlies or flying pests that could possibly get to baby or any other family member.  The Puracy Natural Bug Spray is 100% DEET free.  This completely safe botanical blend will protect your family without causing anyone any immediate harm or lasting effects.  Unlike other bug sprays, the Puracy spray has a pleasant scent that you won’t mind wearing out in public, and even the most sensitive family members can stay protected.

If you’re looking for natural, effective products to help you care for your family in the best way you can, Puracy is definitely the way to go.

Easy And Effortless Hair Removal With Parissa #Review


Get rid of unwanted hair this summer with Parissa Wax Strips.  At home hair removal has never been so this easy!  Parissa is made of all natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals that will harm your skin.  Just gentle, effective hair removal that can be used anywhere.


Parissa sent me a couple of boxes of wax strips to try out and I’m so glad they did!  The wax strips for leg and body are a heaven send!  Effectively remove large areas of hair without hot wax, shaving, or irritation.  You can use them on legs, arms, or even your chest for those men who like to be soft and smooth.  Each area of hair was removed in one shot, no need to re-apply strips to the same area over and over.  The face and bikini wax strips are perfect for smaller areas.  I have never had such an easy time doing my eyebrows!  Also great for bikini zone so you can remain smooth and confident no matter where you are.  I assume these would also be great for upper lip or chin for women who suffer from facial hair, but I can only attest to the brows and bikini zone for sure.

Easy, effortless, long-lasting beauty with quality that can’t be matched.  Each box of wax strips also comes with Azulene Oil to help soothe, clean, and moisturize your skin immediately following your wax.  The Azulene Oil also helps relieve bumps, redness, and irritation should they occur (although for me, I had none of those issues arise).  I love the effectiveness of the ready to use wax strips, I can’t wait to try the Parissa Warm Wax in the near future!
