Beurre Shea Butter Cream-A Review

shea butterLoving this shea butter cream! Being a natural skin care advocate and blogger, I receive many invitations throughout the year to try new, all natural skin products. Even though I receive these products for free, I only review those that I find are truly natural and truly beneficial to our skin and our bodies.

I recently had the pleasure of trying several samples of Beurre Shea Butter Cream. In my opinion, this is by far the best body butter I have ever used. Not only did it make my skin glow but it managed to keep it hydrated for the entire day. Not many skin lotions and potions can do that especially those that are filled with chemicals.

It is 100% pure, containing over 80% unrefined shea butter and infused with grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, and aromatic scents. Scents of lemongrass, vanilla, lavender and my personal favorite, white amber, will have you addicted to this product in no time.

The healing and conditioning benefits of shea butter have been known for centuries in Africa and Europe to protect and rejuvenate skin and hair. Elevate your skin to it’s original state of beauty. A natural skin treatment for any of the following skin conditions, has it in the bag! Twenty bucks gets you a 4 oz. jar. You can’t beat it.

  • It can help heal scars, burns and stretchmarks.
  • It prevents dry skin, chapping and rashes.
  • It helps dry skin, dermatitis, eczema, sunburn, and athlete’s foot.
  • It rejuvenates pores and adds elasticity to skin.
  • It helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and acne.

This is the one skin care product that can dramatically improve all of your skin problems and I personally don’t know how I got along without it. Love, love, love this!

Never heard of a sugar scrub that smells like angel food cake either. Angelically Delicious Angel Food Cake Scrub is said to smell like the real thing. OMG! Made with Babassu Oil to moisturize, they say you will want to eat it right out of the jar and I believe it.

For those that love to bathe in luxury, the Nirvana Milk & Mango Luxe Bath Soak with Cocoa Butter may be just what you’re looking for. With ingredients like Passionflowers, Lemongrass, Rose Petals, Mango and Cocoa Butter bits, how can it not leave your skin soft, smooth and supple?

Best anti aging treatment on the planet

Kozzi-apples-being-weighed-588 X 883What is the best anti-aging treatment on the planet? Food. Of course. How can we not know this now after watching episodes of the Biggest Loser. Yes, these people lose weight, stop taking their meds, and that’s important. In addition, has anyone really noticed how their skin looks? How beautiful they have become on the outside? These people have amazing skin! They have a radiant glow!

I just finished reading the book “Dr. Denese’s Secrets For Ageless Skin” by Adrienne Denese, M.D, another physician who believes that the health of your skin begins on the inside. There are many, many books on the market about reducing wrinkles and even preventing them, and almost every one of them is sending the same message. Diet plays a huge role in maintaining younger looking skin. It is the best natural anti aging treatment in existence. How could so many professionals be wrong?

I for one, agree with the diet role, as I am just shy of 50 and told the other day while I was in line for the bathroom at Riverfest, that I look like I am in my 30’s! I wear no makeup, even though if I did, I would only wear natural mineral makeup, I see a personal trainer, and I eat a healthy diet. When I look back at pics from my thirties, I look older than I do now! Shocking but many of my readers would probably say the same about themselves 10 or even 20 years later. When you change your diet, exercise and remain diligent about what you put on your skin, you will see dramatic results.

The fact is most traditional skin care products give you traditional results which are well, traditionally minimal. While advances in topical skin care can now help to reverse and prevent aging skin, accepting that there are far more steps involved in addition to slapping on the anti aging cream, is the only way to truly change your look.

Is Natox The New Natural Alternative To Botox?


Sue Moxley named as face of richibrown Organic NATOX
| beauty | beauty launch | DIARY feature |

Sue Moxley has been announced as the face and contact for South African anti-ageing product richibrown Organic NATOX, which has just become available in the UK. Instead of using a chemically induced reaction, the new product uses electro-magnetic fields and high energy discharges to create resonating molecular crystals. These microscopic crystals give off a specific frequency that disrupts the synapse between the nerve ending and the muscle, resulting in a relaxation of facial lines. This chemical free alternative to botox is priced £89 for a bottle that last approximately four months and is available nationwide. Sue Moxley, who claims to have stopped using botox since using the richibrown Organic NATOX, comments: “I have tried many products over the years without any great changes to the skin this one really does make a difference.”

Could this be the best anti aging cream? If what the company claims is true, we no longer have to pay $300 every few months for botox. This could be huge! I don’t know who Sue Moxley is nor do I understand the science but I certainly understand the Natox claims…

My Favorite Honey Face Mask

I love, love, love to use face masks! My favorite ingredient is honey for many reasons but most importantly, it’s well known that honey is beneficial to skin. Throughout the ages, honey was the best antibacterial choice for treating wounds.

Honey is found in many age-old recipes for beautiful, healthy skin. It is known to nourish and promote tissue re-growth, aid in the treatment of various skin disorders such as eczema, and minimizes scarring.

While all honey has health benefits, Manuka Honey benefits are enhanced because of its higher antibacterial potency. While you can make a honey face mask at home, there are many natural skin products coming to market containing Manuka Honey today as the demand for natural skin products continues to grow. Personally I don’t have the patience to make dinner recipes let alone skin care recipes.

Here is my favorite natural honey mask:

Manuka Marine Mask by ManukaSea Magic

Get Rid Of Oily Skin

You think it sucks having oily skin? Think again. You may hate it now, but according to Kat James, author of the Truth About Beauty, oily skin actually ages slower. Yes, you read that right; your oily skin will be a blessing to you some day when you look 10 years younger than everyone else your age. So, what can you do to get rid of oily skin until you can truly appreciate it?

First and foremost, many oily skin care products on the market today contain synthetic ingredients that can strip your skin of the natural oils it needs for optimum skin health. You will know these products when they leave your skin tight and dehydrated. Of course, most people would assume that it is a good thing however, it may cause your oil glands to work overtime creating the oily skin you so wish to get rid of.

It is extremely important to balance the skin by using only natural skin products without known skin irritants which can make it worse. (more…)

Men Skin Care-It’s Time To Turn Him On

It’s time ladies: time to turn your man on to skin care for men including anti aging creams, cleansers and a good SPF cream. After all, you don’t want him to be a wrinkled mess at 50 when you look 20ish! Men skin care products will help reverse some of the damage done and daily SPF moisturizers will protect him from additional skin damage from the sun.

When we think of men skin care products, we think of shaving cream, soap, and my husband’s favorite…body wash/shampoo. Yes that’s both body wash and shampoo together! There’s no hope for him, however things are changing for many others.

Today, more men, especially younger men, are receiving skin care treatments at spas and physician offices. I hear many of my friends complaining that their anti aging skin products are disappearing faster than normal and many men are starting to ask questions. My brother in law uses the entire men’s Arbonne line and my best friends husband is hooked on her night cream.

While many men skin care products on the market today more than likely contain similar if not identical ingredients as our own, it just wouldn’t feel right for him to buy anything but “skin care for men.” According to Yum Gourmet skincare for men, a man’s skin is approximately 15% thicker than a woman’s, and is generally firmer, showing signs of aging less rapidly. However, once the aging process begins, typically around the age of 40, collagen and elastin production decreases dramatically causing the skin to show rapid and visible signs of aging with the emergence of deep wrinkles.

Effective skin care can slow and reduce aging, restoring firmness and elasticity to the skin. So here’s the thing…it’s Christmas time and what better way to introduce a man to skin care and anti aging creams made especially for him? I even found some natural skin products for your man. Here is a sampling…. (more…)
