Product Review: JoJoba Antioxidant Hydrating Mist and CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

Hydrating, Antioxidant, Sensitive to Skin, Dermatologist Formulated…all of the words that describe JoJoba Mist and CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray.  I received both sprays in the mail for a product review.

My skin care regimen includes using a quality cleanser and moisturizer before bedtime.  I decided to replace my normal face lotion with the JoJoba Antioxidant Hydrating Mist.  Honestly, I can’t live without this product!  It’s a light face mist with an all natural scent.  My skin had a radiant glow with the appearance of leaving a spa appointment.

The CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray (just like the name) is 100% all natural ingredient.  I like to use this product on areas that need restoration such as the scar on my leg or the stretchmark on my thigh.  I’m still actively using this product for results and it’s the perfect after shower spray.

Pamper Mom on Mother’s Day – Epsom Salt Treatment

Moms deserve all the pampering in the world, and with Mother’s Day approaching, you might be interested in an inexpensive way to create an at-home spa for mom.

Just get some Epsom salt, and it will help give Mom a well-deserved break. Doctors say it might even improve her health!

Here’s how:

For pampering

Epsom Salt can be used to create the ultimate at-home spa, and it’s something several experts and celebrities recommend to help look and feel better. A relaxing bath or exfoliating treatment will leave your skin radiant and glowing.

Tips include:

  • Glowing skin exfoliating treatment: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.
  • Microdermabrasion Facial: Mix 1/2 TSP of Epsom Salt into cleansing cream for a deep-pore cleansing. Massage on skin. Rinse with cool water. Pat dry.
  • Bathtime Bliss: Add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub; soak for at least 12 minutes, three times weekly. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent.
  • Pedicure Perfection: Dissolve a half cup of Epsom Salt into two quarts of warm water. Pour the water into a container and soak your bare feet for fifteen to twenty minutes. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent. Massage the entire foot with Epsom Salt concentrating on the heels and ankles to remove any dry, rough spots. Then, rinse your feet off with clean tap water and dry them thoroughly.
  • Homemade bath crystals: Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 TSP of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.

After Exercising/Boosting Magnesium Levels

Tips include:

  • To ease muscle pain and fading bruises. Add two cups of Epsom Salt to warm water in a standard-sized bathtub (double the Epsom Salt for an oversized garden tub) and bathe three times weekly, soaking for at least 12 minutes.  Also can be used to make compresses.
  • To soothe feet aching from a tough workout or a long day, add a cup of Epsom Salt to a tub of warm water and soak them.

Those soaks could also boost your body’s level of magnesium – a nutrient that experts say helps your body produce its main source of energy and impacts at least 300 enzyme systems. Over the past century, experts say the amount of magnesium we consume in our diets has dropped by about 60 percent, but here are some tips from doctors and researchers who say soaking in Epsom salt can increase your body’s level of magnesium:

Carrie Dunham – One Handbag for Every Occasion

Carrie Dunham‘s stylish and functional line of handbags makes it effortless for today’s woman to be on-trend, remain versatile, while always giving a nod to classic style.

unnamed (42)

The Dunham Collection offers sophisticated, modernized versions of the Bermuda bag. The upgrades are plentiful all while maintaining that vintage Bermuda vibe. The differences lie in the Dunham Collection’s revolutionized design and broad use of materials for covers. The original Bermuda bag came with a limiting wood handle and a small white muslin base that required a cover, of which there were few cover options. – In contrast, both the Dunham clutch and Carrie clutch are stunning enough without having to use a cover, yet give the option of using a cover, therefore maximizing their versatility.

unnamed (41)

– The Dunham clutch comes with a leather handle and a base constructed from either soft suede or genuine Italian leather (choose from gold, brown, black or white).

– The Carrie clutch has no handle, but rather a stylish, -adjustable/removable chain. The Carrie base comes in leather and is firmer in structure for a sleek, sophisticated look. Both retail for $265.00.

– Choose one (or several) of the myriad of chic covers offered by the Dunham Collection that fit both the Dunham and Carrie clutches for a completely different look. The options are limitless: crisp linen, sexy snakeskin, modern sequined, metallic cork, burlap, suede, classic stripes or a monogrammed cover updated with crabs, anchors and more playful designs. There is a cover for every occasion no matter how casual or formal. In addition, there is no need to fumble with clunky buttons to fit your cover like with the Bermuda bag, simply put the cover over the Dunham bag and press the holes (in the cover) onto the studs for a brand new look. Since your base bag remains and you only change the cover, there is no more fussing with transferring the contents of your purse to another. Furthermore, Carrie Dunham has made it possible to travel with ONE handbag and multiple covers so every look is polished. Clutch covers range from $58.00-$84.00.

Motions Hair – Treat & Repair {Color Care} Products

Motions has launched a new collection of hair care products.  The brand focused on healthy color treated hair with a set of cleansers and conditioners.  For an intense treatment, ladies can also purchase the deep conditioning masque for all hair types.

Treat and Repair Color Care

From my experience with Motions Treat & Repair products, the shampoo helps to retain moisture without completely drying out my hair.  The conditioner works wonders (after washing) making my hair much softer than before.  I also want to share that both products smell great throughout my wash and a few days afterwards.  It was clear that a professional product was used on my tresses.

Wearing a turban to protect my tresses

That’s a tip we can’t forget; there’s a lot of hair products out there but are they professional or salon quality?  Trust me ladies, that makes a difference in the health, styling, and growth of your hair.  Although it’s easy to grab a $3 dollar masque while picking up medicine, love your hair and help it to look it’s best.

Motions products can be purchased at your local beauty supply store.

Hostess Gift Ideas and DIY Inspiration

How many times have you been invited to someone’s home and asked yourself, “what should I give the hostess?”  Proper etiquette states that we should gift something that “evokes a memory” but we want to be creative and thoughtful.

My first suggestion would be to consider the occassion.  Is this a housewarming party or game night?  Next, take inventory of small trinkets you already own.  Have you purchased a beautiful basket or set of mason jars?  Also, try to think of the interests or hobbies of the hostess.  Does she enjoy cooking or gardening?

Ultimately, giving the perfect gift can be delightful for both you and the hostess.  You’re adding a special touch to sincerely say, “thank you for having me at your home!”
