Product Review: Social Soap by Soap.com

If you're like me who obsess about natural soaps, then this post is for you. I was recently approved to review Social Soap by Soap.com. I chose the Oats and Orange Bar.





Product Description

Energy-boosting orange is complemented by soothing, restorative oatmeal in our handmade Oats’n’Orange luxury soap. Enjoy the uplifting, sweet citrus aroma as you lather up for nourished, pampered skin.

Soap is our passion. We only offer premium quality bath & body soap aged up to 6 weeks. Each bar is made fresh with pure natural & organic ingredients that will stimulate your senses. Our secret…old-fashioned cold process soap making. Every product is made by hand, starting from stirring the recipe, cutting the bars and even packaging each individual bar. You will notice the soft gentle lather that feels like lotion instead of rough sharp edges that scratch and irritate your skin.

Cold process soap making helps enhance the scent of our essential oils & fragrances. Many of our scents provide the same properties used in aromatherapy and wellness programs. Feel the guilt free, sensual indulgence of our soap.

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Hemp Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Water, and Essentials Oil/Fragrance

My Thoughts

As expected, the soap smells heavenly. If you love the delicious scent of orange, you will love this soap. It lathers up nicely and they are right with the description. The soap's lather feels like lotion on the skin. After toweling off, I can feel that my skin is soft and well moisturized. It's probably because of the oatmeal and the essential oils in the ingredients.

I love this soap and I would love to try all their other soaps. Now, if you're wondering where to get this awesome soap, you can click here to see the variety of handmade soaps they have on their website.

Identify Yourself

Your name identifies you to others. However, there's more to you than just a name. You have a unique personality and an individualized style that gives people a glimpse into your world. Monogrammed accessories are a fun and fantastic way to brighten up your wardrobe and your life.

Taking Tech Gadgets With You

Most people carry at least one, and often more than one, technological gadget with them everywhere they go. You can separate yourself from the unimaginative crowd with items such as a monogrammed iphone case, personalized ipad cases, monogrammed laptop and cell phone skins and numerous other personalized accessories for your tech supplies. In addition to the monogrammed feature, you can express your vibrant personality with visually exciting covers and cases that feature bold, bright colors and quirky patterns.

Keep the monogram theme going

Another factor that separates you from everyone else is your passion for specific causes and your individual interest in certain hobbies and sports. Tote bags and laptop cases have almost become a standard accessory. Adding a monogram to either of these makes them a little more special.

You can let your fun side shine through in your vacation, weekend or leisure time clothing and accessories. Luggage, garment bags, hats and even flip flops can be monogrammed. Wearing bight colors can liven up your mood and also lift the spirit of those you come in contact with. You can develop your own signature style with colorful clothing and accessories that feature your initials.

Around the house

There's an almost limitless list of home decor and houseware items that can be monogrammed. Mix some of those into your decor and your home will have an additional personal touch that would otherwise be missing. You can personalize items such as coffee mugs, glasses and placemats for your kitchen, linens for your bedroom or bathroom and numerous other indoor and outdoor decor items.

Personalizing items both with your initials and with your choice of colors and patterns is a wonderful form of self expression. It gives you an opportunity to reveal your uniqueness to others.

Product Review: Cellular Hyaluronic Acid Nutri Serum by LaNouvel

One thing I love about Hyaluronic Acid is it keeps my skin well hydrated. Today's review is about the Cellular Hyaluronic Acid Nutri Serum by LaNouvel.





Product Description

This luxury serum delivers impressive hydration in a bioavailable solution directly into your skin cells. Botanical solvents drive moisture repair ingredients directly into the heart of your skin cells. Hyaluronic Acid makes up fifty percent of this high quality formulation. Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin, there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the world market today. Non-comedogenic, penetrates deeply, and activates collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, brighter complexion. Loaded with potent antioxidants, peptides, amino acids and free radical defenders, this miracle serum will give you the boost, lift and smoother, happier and truly vibrant skin.

My Thoughts

I am already in my late forties and except for my crow's feet, I only have a few fine lines under my eyes. My skin is on the oily side, too, so I try to stay away from products that will add more shine to it.

The Hyaluronic acid serum by LaNouvel came in a pretty bottle. It comes with a glass dropper, so you can control the amount you need. It has a nice rose scent, it has a thick consistency, unlike other serums that I've used, but it is not sticky. The serum is easy to work on the skin, spreads easily and absorbed quickly, so you don't really need a lot to cover your face and neck area.

I love how it makes my skin feels soft and smooth. It also looks plump and stays hydrated for hours. I also like that it doesn't leave my skin looking shiny. I have been using it for three weeks now and there's a slight improvement on my fine lines. They are less visible now and even my enlarged pores have reduced a bit.

Overall, this is a wonderful product and I love what it does to my skin. If you are looking for a product to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, I recommend this.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Cellular Hyaluronic Acid Nutri Serum by LaNouve through Amazon.

Product Review: NEW Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant by Oz Natural

While it's true that our skin gets rid of dead skin cells naturally, most of the time they don't fall off right away. We still need to slough them off for skin care products to get absorbed and do its wonders. That is why I make it a point to exfoliate once in a while. And yes, that is what this post is all about. I was recently given the opportunity to review the NEW Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant by Oz Natural.





About the Product

* OZ Naturals FACE SCRUB EXFOLIANT utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping.
* FINALLY A FACIAL SCRUB THAT contains lactic acid and alpha lipoic acid to further help the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
* ANOTHER KEY INGREDIENT, green tea extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as tone and protect the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.
* THE PRO-VITAMIN B5 IN OUR scrub is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin
* SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and free of harmful ingredients.

My Thoughts

The exfoliant is very gritty and you will definitely feel the exfoliation. I have to warn you to be very, very gentle when rubbing this on your face.



I love the results, though, because as soon as I washed it off, my face felt very soft and smooth. The blackheads on my T zone (the nose especially) are gone. Aside from that, my skin felt very clean and refreshed.

This should be done 2 to 3 times a week to get the best results and I would do just that especially that I love what it did to my skin.

Overall, this is a great exfoliant. It cleanses and rids skin of dead skin cells and leaves it silky smooth. If you are looking for a product to help slough off dead skin cells, grits and grime, this is a great product to try.

Where to buy?

Baking is one of our favorite things to do, especially when the kids are on vacation. The kids love helping out, especially when I give them the go to measure the ingredients, make the batter and scoop and place them onto the baking sheet.

I recently received a set of pretty measuring spoons for evaluation purposes.

My Thoughts

I love that the spoons come in different colors because it makes you easily remember what to use. The spoons are made of stainless steel and unlike other measuring spoons that I have used, the measurements (metric and non metric) are engraved on each spoon. The handles are made of silicone, making them easier to grip.

A metal ring that easily opens and closes holds all the spoons. You can easily take out one spoon that you often use or just keep them all together. Storage is easy as well because you can just simply hang them using the ring or store in your cabinet.

Where to buy?

Three Things To Look For In A Uniform Company

These days, business owners and individuals are constantly looking for great uniforms that will optimize their appearance and increase the professionalism of their companies. If you're currently looking for the ideal company from which to purchase your uniforms, it's important to note that the best businesses will typically possess the following three attributes:

1. Experience In The Uniform Industry.

Whether you're looking for polo shirt uniforms, kitchen uniforms, or some other type, you want to work with a company that has extensive experience in the industry. Doing so is important for many reasons, including the fact that experienced business owners typically possess the extensive knowledge and "know-how" necessary to help you attain the perfect uniform quickly. When you start looking for the ideal uniform company, keep Averill's Sharper Uniforms in mind. This company has been in operation for over a decade and places great primacy on ensuring the customer's 100% satisfaction.

2. A Great Reputation.

Another factor you should look for in a uniform company is a great reputation. Reputation is important because it functions as a form of proof that the company is known for providing customers with the high quality uniforms and personalized services they need and deserve. To determine whether a uniform company has a great reputation, go online and see whether it has obtained a favorable rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also take time to read online reviews left about the uniform company.

3. Reasonable Rates.

If you're like most people, you're on a budget and don't want to "break the bank" to get the great uniform you want. With this idea in mind, be sure that you're looking for a uniform company that offers reasonable rates. To get an idea of what the going rates are, you'll need to shop around and do a comparison/contrast before making your final decision. By taking this route, you'll be able to get the most cost-effective prices on the block.

Conclusion

If you're interested in getting an aesthetically appealing, durable uniform for work, remember that finding a reputable retailer from which to make the purchase is important. To ensure that you find a uniform company that will offer you the excellent products and customized care you deserve, make sure that the retailer possesses all of the attributes listed here. Good luck!

Tips for Buying Boys' Clothes

Children grow so fast and whether they are getting ready for summer, going back to school or getting ready for the cold months, they will usually need new clothes having outgrown the ones you bought a few months ago. For me, it's easier to shop for girls' clothes than boys'. Aside from the fact that almost all children's stores offer a wide variety of styles and designs for girls, they are more patient when it comes to shopping and trying on clothes.

Most boys don't really care about their clothes. So long as they have something to wear and they are comfortable, they're okay. If you are shopping for them and you have them in tow, that could be a real challenge. Boys don't have the patience to visit several stores, so you better have those measurements and sizes ready. That way, you won't have to spend a long time in the store. Also make sure that you have a list of what you need, so you can easily check the items as you shop.





While it's a good idea to buy clothes that are a size bigger, don't risk it with seasonal items. Like for example, you want to buy a pair of boots for winter because it is on sale; you have to keep in mind that boys grow at unpredictable rates and there is a great chance those boots won't fit come winter time.

Nowadays, many people are preferring to shop online because of convenience. Aside from saving their sanity from having to deal with impatient boys, there are no traffic and parking problems to think about. ZALORA is my go to shop when it comes to clothing. They offer a wide range of clothing for children that are stylish and affordable. You can check out their collection here.

My Thoughts

The shampoo has an earthy and fresh scent. It's hard to describe, but I really like it. The conditioner also smells great. It's lavender and vanilla - you'll fall in love with the scent.

The husband has thinning hair, so I made him use the shampoo. It's only been a few days and albeit no new hair has grown (yet), he says he can feel that his hair is stronger and there is less hair fall. His hair also looks healthier. He also loves the earthy/fresh scent.

I was the one who tried the conditioner. Aside from the lovely scent, I love how it deeply moisturizes. My hair stayed soft and smooth all day. I've got thick and wavy hair, but the conditioner tamed the curls.

Overall, we love the products. They are paraben free and only organic ingredients were used to make them. If you are looking for a product to prevent hair loss, bring back the shine and tame the frizz, these two are worth giving a try.

Radha Beauty's Clearing Serum {Review}


Ever since I started reviewing products more than a year ago, I often have the opportunity to test and review beauty products complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. Today's beauty product is the Clearing Serum by Radha Beauty. I am not new to this brand and to tell you honestly, I love their products.





Product Description

The Radha Beauty Professional Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum will help reverse the signs of aging while improving blemished skin and hyperpigmentation. In this powerful serum sulfur penetrates and creates elasticity while Niacinamide takes the red out and prevents inflammation that underlies all troubled skin issues. 20% Vitamin C repairs micro scarring, reverses sun damage, provides significant natural sun protection and rapidly creates smooth supple glowing skin. Stealthy superior retinol and salicylic acid unclog pores, heal acne, speed cellular turnover, and undo the signs of aging skin.

My Thoughts

The serum has a very strong herbal scent that is similar to tea tree oil. There is also a light floral smell that mixes with the herbal scent. The scent is rather strong, but it is not offensive. I kind of like the smell actually.

The serum has a nice consistency and it is not sticky. It is absorbed quickly and it dries fast. It is gentle on the skin, it is not drying and I did not break out. Although my skin is not really sensitive, there are a few products that I've tried that had me breaking out. This one didn't. In fact, I love how it keeps my skin moisturized and supple.

It's only been a few days and I'm already in love with this product. I can't believe that my enlarged pores appear smaller! The fine lines around my eyes have softened as well. I am so sure this serum will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Overall, this is one great beauty product and it definitely deserves a spot in my skincare regimen. If you are wanting to combat the early signs of aging and bring back the glow of your skin, this serum by Radha is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Clearing Serum through the Radha Beauty website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $22.89.

Wearing Black and White?

Stick with solids because it whittles the middle. Blouses with busy textures like lace can blur the outline of the waist, causing the middle to look thick. 



Whereas a solid white top creates the illusion of a more defined silhouette, which highlights the dip in at the waist, so it looks thinner.
