Nature’s Face Lift

Have you ever tried Aloe Vera gel?

It has 75 different nutrients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes which are all great for your skin. Sometimes I use this instead of lotion & it leaves my skin extremely moisturized & not greasy.  Of course using the raw plant would be better but since I don’t have this plant I’ll do the next best thing & use this gel. IMG_1592

Beauty Tip : Mix this with oatmeal & you have yourself an amazing exfoliator

Everyday Coconut From Whole Foods

I’ve always been very careful about what goes on my daughter’s skin. I try researching all the ingredients in all the products she uses. It’s really scary how many chemicals you can find in baby products!  Below I’ve listed all the ingredients in this bubble bath, it’s much better/safer than most baby products out there. 

 Ingredients in Everyday Coconut Bubble Bath: 

Yarrow Extract– The essential oil of Yarrow holds the secret to smoother and younger skin with a balanced amount of moisture in it.

Decyl polyglucose-An effective gentle cleaner that is extremely mild compared to others surfactants

Lauryl glucoside– is derived from Coconut and has an excellent and stable foam

Coconut water – clear liquid inside young green coconuts

Coconut Oil– edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts

Coconut extract – below are only some of the many benefits

• Helps to prevent infections when applied topically to the skin.• Helps to reduce symptoms of psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.

 Chamomile Extract– has been used since Ancient times for their calming and anti-inflammatory properties

Phenoxyethanol– common cosmetic preservative that is considered one of the least irritating to use in formulations. It does not release formaldehyde

The reason for this post is because I wanted to share my newest find which is called Everyday Coconut Bubble Bath. I love the ingredients & I love how soft my baby’s skin is after bath time. It’s pricey ($10.99 – 32 oz. bottle) but I don’t mind paying a little extra for something that’s much safer & natural for my little girl.

 

I highly recommend this for all you mommies out there! Or if you know any mommies you can get this for them & I’m almost positive they would love it. 

 There is just so many chemicals in everything these days, it gets tough. (sigh)

 Made with Certified Fair-Trade coconut oil.  Fair trade is an organized social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability. Members of the movement advocate the payment of higher prices to exporters, as well as higher social and environmental standards.

Natural Mane

unnamedI usually blow dry my hair straight but lately I’ve been embracing my natural waves. I’ve been using the Deva Curl No Poo hair cleanser. I feel like it really cleans my hair without stripping it. My hair feels really clean & hydrated afterwards, without the lather!  I also use the Deva Curl gel, it dissolves quickly into my hair and doesn’t leave a sticky, heavy feel. 

If you know of any other products that work great for wavy/curly  hair please let me know! s1509611-main-hero-300 s1509561-main-hero-300
