The Perfect Summer Scent – Cali Blue Parfum Oil

 

Beach

When you think about the summer, what comes to mind? Barbecues? Lounging by the pool? Vacationing with your family?

When you think about the SCENTS of summer, what do you think of? Flowers? Salty ocean air? Sunscreen? Roasted marshmallows?

Isn’t it amazing how a certain scent can transport your mind to another place and time? Take for example Coppertone sunscreen. It could be the dead of winter and if I get one whiff of Coppertone I instantly think of the beach, even if it’s snowing outside. My husband is the same way. In fact my husband has been known to rub a little Coppertone on his wrist just so he can smell it from time to time. He loves how it reminds him of the beach and he finds the scent relaxing like a lazy summer day on the beach.

There is another scent that also makes me think of the beach. It’s called Cali Blue. It’s made by Aroma Earth.

Cali Blu

According to the Aroma Earth website;

Cali Blue has a citrus medley of natural lemon, orange, mandarin and bergamot in the top-note, a floral bouquet of lily, lavender, rose and a whisper of night blooming jasmine in the middle, and an ambery, vanilla, musky sage-like base-note. The combination is a clean, beachy fragrance, reminiscent of spending vacations at the shore…

Its sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?

Aroma Earth was kind enough to send me one of their Cali Blue Parfum Oil in an easy to use roll on bottle. I like the roll on dispenser. It’s small and easy enough to carry around in a purse or tote bag. You also don’t have to worry about any spilling out since the roller ball keeps the liquid in place.

When I initially put Cali Blue on it didn’t remind of of the beach, but it does have a pleasant scent. After about a minute the scent changes. When it changes it DOES remind me of the beach. I even asked my husband to smell it and let me know what he thought about it. Without knowing the scent he said it reminded him of the beach or like something you’d smell in the clothing store Hollister. It’s kind of funny that he mentioned that store specifically. If I’m not mistaken Hollister is supposed to be inspired by life in Southern California.

Don’t get me wrong – the scent does not smell like Hollister cologne – my husband simply implied that is smells like a scent you’d find in such a store.

The scent lasts a long time on your skin too. You can also smell it around you. Some scents you have to practically put your nose on it to smell it. Not Cali Blue. People around you can smell it with no problem.

In addition to Cali Blue I also received to review Aroma Earth’s scent Faithful and another scent called Summer Bliss.

Faithful

 

As per the Aroma Earth website in regards to the Faithful Essential Oil Perfume;

Our beautiful new perfume made with natural essential oils!  A lovely blend of lemon, bergamot, orange, ylang ylang, with a base of vanilla. Blended with sweet almond oil and vitamin e.

This scent was just OK. I wasn’t overwhelmed by it. It’s not a bad scent. It’s just an OK scent for me. I prefer Cali Blue much more than this scent.

Faithful reminds me of something but I have yet to pinpoint what the scent reminds me of. The scent also doesn’t seem to last as long as Cali Blue does.

Summer Bliss

I also received Summer Bliss to try out and review.

Our beautiful new perfume made with natural essential oils!  A lovely blend of lemon, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, bergamot, with a base of vanilla. Blended with sweet almond oil and vitamin e. 

I asked my husband to tell me the first thing that came to mind when he smelled Summer Bliss. The first words out of his mouth was “Creamsicle”. He said the perfume reminds him of that classic summer time treat – orange Creamsicles.

After my husband told me that I smelled the perfume again and sure enough, that is exactly what it smells like. Its probably because it’s made with orange and vanilla.

Summer Bliss is a fun scent. I think teens would like this scent just as much as adults. There is a “youthfulness” about it.

Aroma Earth sells the roll ons for $17.50. In terms of perfumes and fragrances this is a great price. Not only that the roll ons last a very long time because you only need a few rolls on your pulse points.

Aroma Earth sells other products including skin care, pet products, jewelry and bath & body products.

Give yourself a flawless look with Magic Minerals makeup

 

Makeup Collage

When I was younger I would NEVER leave my home without being fully made up. I would be dressed nice, have on matching jewelry and my hair and make up would look perfect. I would spend well over an hour in the bathroom just to get ready for school. Looking back on it now I realize just how silly it all was. I honestly wasn’t vain – I just wanted to make sure that I looked good.

Fast forward 20+ years. I wear whatever is comfortable and nice looking. I don’t wear jewelry often. My hair is normally air dried and in a pony tail and my make up is as minimal as possible. Dare I even say that I will leave the house without make up on and go days without wearing any? Even though I think I look horrible without at least mascara and eye liner, my hubby things I look beautiful natural looking (no makeup).

When I was younger I used liquid foundation, concealer, powder, and blush on my face (not including eye makeup). I always hated how weighed down my skin felt and how gross it felt on a hot and humid day. I could not wait to wash it all off. It’s funny to think I’d spend an hour putting it on only to count down until I could take it all off.

I have not used foundation or concealer in many years. I prefer to use mineral makeup on my skin. It’s lightweight and doesn’t make me want to wash it off the moment I get home.

I have tried several mineral makeups over the years. Some are decent, others are not worth the money I paid for them.

The downside to mineral make is that it tends to get everywhere. Since it’s a lose powder when you put it on your face it gets all over your clothes and counter top. I make sure to put my makeup on before I get dressed just so I don’t mess up my clothes.

Makeup

I received to review a makeup product from legendary makeup artist Jerome Alexander. He developed a pressed ultra-fine mineral makeup powder that comes in a compact. It’s called Magic Minerals. The new Magic Minerals is now enhanced with nourishing antioxidants vitamin E and vitamin C in a proprietary formula.

Magic Minerals came with a brush and a small sponge for blending (if you chose to do so – I have yet to do that).

The product is the same size as most other makeup compacts and fits perfectly in a purse or your makeup bag.

The brush is really nice. I plan on keeping it after my Magic Minerals runs out. It would make a great blush brush.

The very first thing I noticed about the product is that it was speckled with different colors - pink, mint, lavender and yellow. At first I thought this was done just to make it look pretty. After reading the packaging I realized that the different colors help correct different skin conditions.

  • Pink – Gives your skin a healthy glow and brightness.
  • Mint – Helps to make redness disappear. Good for covering up a red pimple or Rosacea.
  • Lavender – Corrects yellow skin.
  • Yellow – Lightens dark mark like the dark circles under your eyes.

At first I wasn’t sure how to get the colors that I needed in the areas that I needed them most. Another words, how was I going to get the yellow bits on the brush to help correct the dark circles under my eyes without grabbing the other colors too. Then I realized the colorful bits are meant to go over your entire face, so you don’t need to worry about where to put them. The makeup does that all for you.

MM

In addition, Magic Minerals is hypoallergenic, adjusts to your skin color and can last for up to 12 hours. Magic Minerals is also free of fragrance and talc, doesn’t contain any irritants and has a natural SPF (I would still recommend using a sunscreen on your face just to be on the safe side).

To use Magic Minerals all I do is swirl the brush around on the powered compact and then apply it to my face in the same swirling motion. There may be other ways to apply it but that is how I do it.

The makeup goes on easily and does a wonderful job at covering up my “flaws”. It also doesn’t make a big mess like lose mineral makeup does.

I really like how this one step process makes my face look wonderful without having to worry about additional products to fix the flaws. It looks natural too. It doesn’t make me look like I caked on makeup. My skin looks closer to natural than overly made up.

I love how lightweight this makeup feels too. I don’t want to race home to wash my face. There have been a few times I almost forgot to wash my face before bed.

Magic Minerals does a much better – and neater – job at making my face look good after it’s applied (my other makeup gets all over the place).

The makeup came with a mascara. I haven’t tried the mascara yet because I recently opened a brand new mascara and I don’t want to waste it. I am holding on to the one that came with Magic Minerals to use after the current one needs to be tossed out.

To learn more about Magic Minerals visit www.MagicMinerals.com. It retails for $19.99 (plus S/H).

Alluring new scents from bodycology

 

bodycology

I have to start this post by saying that I LOVE bodycology products (the brand is spelled with a lower case “b”). I have several bodycology products in my bathroom as I type this. I love the beautiful scents and lotions. I also love that they are very “budget friendly” allowing you to pickup several fragrances for the price of just one of their competitors products.

I was sent a few of the new scents to try out.

Sheer Innocence

bodycology Sheer Innocence Collection ($3.99 each, Walmart)

The fresh scent of citrus mingled with peony petals and vanilla crème delights your senses. This light fragrance will give you feelings of heavenly desire. Top notes of Pink Grapefruit, Dewy Greens, and Honey leading into mid tones of Tender Rose, Jasmine, and Peony Petal, ending with dry notes of Sheer Musk, White Amber, and Vanilla. Sheer Innocence is available in Frangrance Mist and Moisturizing Body Cream.

Sweet Seduction

bodycology Sweet Seduction Collection ($3.99 each, Walmart)

Sweet Seduction is an enticing scent with a succulent blend of fresh petals and apple. With both floral and fruity undertones this fragrance will captivate your senses. Top notes of Juicy Orange, Crisp Apple, Melon Water, and Red Plum open this intriguing scent, leading with mid notes of Red Currant, Muguet Petals, Rose, and Sweet Freesia, ending with dry notes of Creamy Sandalwood, and Sheer Musk. Sweet Seduction is available in Frangrance Mist and Moisturizing Body Cream.

Instant Attraction

bodycology Instant Attraction Collection ($3.99 each, Walmart)

Instant Attraction will electrify your senses with its hints of dark orchid and sparkling pear. Starting off with top notes of Fresh Ozone, Watery Pear, and Pink Peppercorn leading into the heart notes of Romantic Rose, and Sensual Ylang, and ending with the overall base notes of White Amber, Blonde Woods, and Addictive Musk. This fragrance is known to captivate your senses leaving you with an everlasting scent of intriguing floral. Instant Attraction is available in Frangrance Mist and Moisturizing Body Cream.

Playful Romance

bodycology Playful Romance Collection ($3.99 each, Walmart)

Turn heads with Playful Romance’s sweet blend of juicy berries and amber crème.  With undertones of oriental floral this fragrance will entice anyone who lets it hit their senses. Top notes of Apple Blossom, Peach, and Blackberry give a fruity base, leading into mid notes of  Frosted Freesia, Jasmine, and Orris Butter, ending with dry notes of Whipped Amber Crème, Sandalwood, and Vanilla Musk, resulting in a scent that will be forever be desirable.

I enjoy all four scents but if I had to pick my top favorite it would be the Sheer Innocence body spray.

I like the body sprays over the lotions because they are great to “grab and spray” when you are rushing out the door where as the lotion needs to be applied and you need to wash your hands afterwards. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the lotions too! It’s just that I prefer the convenience of the spray.

Each scent is distinctly different. Some are a bit lighter than others. Some seem more like perfumes then body sprays which is great considering how much a bottle of quality perfume would cost you. For $3.99 (Walmart’s price) you can’t go wrong with any of these sprays or lotions.

I enjoy using a different scent each day. I received some compliments on the scents too. I’m sorry that I can’t recall the specific scents that people commented on. Some days I forget what I put on until I get home.

My teen daughter loves these too. She’s uses them frequently too.

Both the lotions and the sprays make great gifts too. Keep these in mind for stocking stuffers and gift basket fillers.

Have you ever tried a bodycology product before? If so, do you have a favorite product or scent? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Indulge Yourself in Fat Free, Sugar Free, Calorie Free Fabulous Chocolate

 

Chocolate

I’d like to think that the title for this post caught some people’s attention.

Most people love chocolate. A little piece of real dark chocolate daily can actually be good for you. I’m referring to read cocoa (like 90% cocoa) not the inexpensive chocolates you find at your grocer’s checkout. Sadly we can’t indulge in a lot of chocolate because it does contain fat, calories and sugar. All the delicious things usually do.

What if there was a way to enjoy chocolate that was fat free, sugar free and calorie free? You are probably thinking that such a chocolate would taste kind of gross. It probably would if I was referring to the kind of chocolate you eat. I’m actually talking about chocolate you can enjoy in the shower.

Eating chocolate in the shower?

Don’t worry… I don’t mean you can enjoy your chocolate in the shower by eating it but rather using it to scrub your body and nourish your skin.

Natura Culina sent me their Spa Day Dynamic Duo of Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub and Organic Lavender Shea Butter to review.

I LOVE bath and body products and I always enjoy trying out new products.

Products came together in this nice little bag.

Products came together in this nice little bag.

As a busy woman and mom I always seem to be on the go-go-go. Between running around with the kids, working on my blog, looking for a job, caring for our mini-z00, keeping the home clean and my family well fed doesn’t leave me a lot of “me time”. Taking some time for yourself doesn’t make you selfish – it makes you human. Everyone needs and deserves a little time to themselves to enjoy the peace and quiet, indulge in something that makes you happy, and decompress and unwind after a busy day.

I try to steal a few moments here and there. It’s a bit easier when my kids are in school. Sometimes the only time I get is when I’m in the shower. That is why I like to enjoy that time as much as possible. Spoiling myself with spa-quality bath and beauty products and filling the bathroom with aromatic scents is something I enjoy doing.

I love body scrubs. I think they are essential for keeping your skin looking healthy. Scrubs remove dry skin and add moisture leaving your skin with a healthy looking glow.

I have tried many body scrubs over the years. Some are great, some are not worth the money I spent on them. Some leave your skin looking beautiful and others leave you – and the shower – with an oily mess.

I was super excited to try the Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub from Natura Culina. It looks like chocolate and it smells like chocolate. It kind of smells like a Tootsie Roll. I honestly did want to lick it but I knew it would taste gross. LOL.

Chocolate Body Scrub

Chocolate Body Scrub

When I used it for the first time in the shower it looked kind of weird. It looked like I had smeared chocolate syrup all over my body. The scrub is brown and therefore it looks brown on your skin when you use it. Don’t worry – it doesn’t stain your skin. In fact the scrub washes off easily and leaves your skin feeling very soft. The scrub also coats your skin in a moisture “barrier” (for lack of a better description) to keep your skin hydrated. You can see this by the way water beads up on your skin after you wash the scrub off. It’s the same way water beads up and rolls off your car after you wax it.

Natura Culina uses organic Cocoa along with some of natures best super oils to help nourish your skin.

Unlike other scrubs I have used in the past the Natura Culina scrub rinses out of your tub and doesn’t leave a slick film behind that can cause you to slip and fall. I have actually thrown out scrubs that left the tub with a oily residue on it. That is a safety issue regardless of how well the scrub worked. The Natura Culina scrub rinsed out of my tub and didn’t leave anything behind.

The scrub alone does wonders for your skin. If you want to give your skin even more moisturizer the Natura Culina Lavender Shea Butter is a great choice.

Shea Butter does amazing things for your skin. It’s like the “queen” of moisturizing products. A little goes a long way too.

Lavender Shea Butter

Lavender Shea Butter

I find that Shea Butter is applied best when you first get out of the shower when your skin is still damp. It makes application easier. Otherwise you might find it hard to spread around.

The Natura Culina Lavender Shea Butter not only left my skin super soft but also smelled wonderful too. Lavender is known for it’s ability to help people to relax. You can use this Shea Butter any time of day but I think right before bedtime is the best because the scent will help lull you to sleep.

I love the scent of Lavender so I can enjoy this product anytime.

It’s especially great on elbows, knees and anywhere you have some rough patches on your skin.

Remember that a little goes a long way. I accidentally put too much on the first time I used the product and it seemed like it would never absorb in my skin so I had to wipe some off. You just need a little bit to enjoy it’s benefits.

Both products get a “two thumbs up” from me.

The Spa Day Dynamic Duo of Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub and Organic Lavender Shea Butter sells for $40 on the Natura Culina website. They also have other combinations such as Lemon & Mint, Orange Blossom, Eucalyptus and a sweet sounding Vanilla & Lavender. Each product is also available individually.

In addition Natura Culina sells face products, body products, soaps, products for men and more.

Natura Culina supports several charities, which I like. The donate a portion of their sales to certain charities. You can read more about it on their website.

They also use natural ingredients in their products and their products are made fresh to order which means the products you receive are made fresh just for you. You don’t have to worry about products that have been sitting on shelves in a storage room for months or years.

New José Eber Beauté Cheveux Hair Care Products Available at HSN.com

 

PHOTO SOURCE: HSN.com

PHOTO SOURCE: HSN.com

When I was a young girl I had a head of hair so thick that my hair dresser referred to it as a “lion’s mane”. I had A LOT of hair. It was beautiful hair too. Sadly time, age and an insane amount of styling, perming, coloring and products have made my hair look pretty bad. The gray, silvery and white hairs popping up all over doesn’t help either.

Back when my hair was lush and beautiful I had always dreamed of having a professional make over and having someone style my hair to make me look glamorous. The one person I always had in mind was famed hair stylist José Eber. I had seen him on television many times in my youth and I always wanted him to style my hair. The man knows hair care.

José Eber is still around and he’s still very involved in the hair care industry. He recently released a new line of hair care products too which are available at HSN.com.

I don’t like to “cut and paste” information about products but sometimes I feel there is a need to so as not to miss any important information.

Here is more information about the products.

The NEW José Eber Beauté Cheveux hair care line has a unique, neo-molecular delivery system which allows micro-molecules to penetrate the root sheath and into the cuticle for moisture-rich and environmental damage blocking ingredients to delve deeper into the follicle for long-lasting results.

The unique foam-based formula is dispensed via aerosol cans, which contain the most advance dispensing technology, preventing oxidation and insuring that the precise amount of product is distributed without waste. The proprietary blend of ingredients includes:

Laminaria digitata
Extracts from brown seaweed, ogliosaccharides, help to increase hair’s tensile strength and resilience. Its unique delivery system is able to drive nutrients deep into each strand. Studies of this material have shown its anti-microbial activity helps to keep the scalp healthy which, in turn, keeps hair healthy at the root. Hair returns to its youthful radiance.

  • Protects hair from smog, chemicals and free radical damage
  • Moisturizes while helping reduce serum production
  • Remains on the hair even after rinsing to provide continual effects

Chorella vulgaris

This micro-molecule is extracted from micro algae to infuse hair with substantive moisture. It functions by delivering immediate relief to help create a luxurious feel. Its long term effects create hair that is youthfully enriched and protected.

  • Mimics absorption into skin by penetrating into hair
  • Holds moisture in hair
  • Maintains body and a luxurious feel

Opuntia ficus-indica

Extracted from the prickly flat paddle cacti of Napol, this ingredient is enriched with low molecular weight peptides, carbohydrates and other bound minerals to infuse hair with supple strength and fortitude. When hair becomes ravaged by too much exposure to chemicals, over-styling, the environment or even natural aging, this extract works to smooth any frayed cuticles.

  • Replenishes lost moisture and helps hair to retain rich hydration
  • Repels toxins to create a renewed environment
  • Soothes away damage

Silene uniflora

Extracted from the waters of the French Atlantic, this ingredient flourishes even with excessive UV exposure and high salt content, preserving its own natural beauty with powerful antioxidants that repel attacking free radicals.

  • Protects the hair from environmental exposure and toxins
  • Helps repair healthy cell visibility for a healthier scalp
  • Demonstrated ability to fight free radical damage
  • Softens and smoothes hands

José Eber Beauté Cheveux The Shampoo

Formulated with José Eber’s exclusive luxury blend of French marine botanicals, minerals and other high-performance ingredients, The Shampoo transformer hair with a creamy, rich lather and protects with each wash. Its neo-molecular delivery system is packed with potent nutrients to lock in moisturizing ingredients, keep hair silky and smooth even after the foam is rinsed away.

José Eber Beauté Cheveux The Conditioner

This technologically advanced, feather-light formula provides radiant shine and incredible protection from harsh styling and environmental factors. The José Eber exclusive luxury formulation is combined with powerful antioxidants to keep hair smooth, moisturized and protected throughout the day.

All formulas are free of sulfates and parabens. 

Hair Care Group

I was sent the José Eber Beauté Cheveux “The Shampoo” to review.

The shampoo is in the form of a mousse. It’s very rich, thick and creamy. It’s hard to believe that it’s a shampoo. It seemed more like cream you’d find on top of a gourmet cupcake. :-)

I wasn’t sure how much to use. I sprayed a few handfuls and applied it to my hair.

The shampoo didn’t lather up as much as other shampoos I use. I know that the ingredient that makes things lather is not really good for you (sodium lauryl sulfate or ammonium lauryl sulfate). I looked at the ingredients in the shampoo and didn’t see either of these mentioned, so that might be why it didn’t later that much. 

The shampoo rinse off pretty well.

I had to follow it with a conditioner. There would have been no way I could have combed my hair without it. Maybe it would be OK for people with thin hair, but if you have thick, course and long hair like me you’ll most likely require a conditioner after using this shampoo. There is a conditioner available that goes with this shampoo, but I only received the shampoo to review. I had to use my own conditioner.

So far I haven’t noticed any difference in the quality of my hair. It feels clean and its soft when it’s dry. That is fine with me.

I’m “on the fence” with this shampoo. Maybe combined with the conditioner it might make a difference. I’m not sure. The shampoo is nice. Being in mousse form is cool. It washes and rinses well. It is over $20 when you factor in shipping, but then again I can easily spend that on a hair care product I purchase from the salon.

Honestly I think this might be better suited for people with regular or thin hair, so for people very thick and course hair like me.

The shampoo retails for $17.50 on HSN.com. You can find other José Eber products on his HSN product page.

Three must-try DIY beauty recipes with five ingredients or less

 

DIY-Hair-Treatment-Salad-Dressing

I’m all for products that you can make yourself. The cost of beauty products is crazy sometimes. For example mascara remover. Why pay upwards of $10 a bottle when I can just go “old school” and use some soap and water or Vaseline?

The same applies to exfoliates. Why pay a small fortune when you can just use a little sugar and olive oil?

Here are a few recipes, compliments of Whole Foods Market, for quick, easy and affordable DIY beauty products.

If you don’t have a Whole Foods Market near you (please visit www.WholeFoodsMarket.com for store locations) you can substitute the products for something similar.

Makeup Remover

Eye Makeup Remover

Made with plant-based ingredients, this gentle eye makeup remover will dissolve even the most stubborn mascara.

Ingredients:

1 small glass jar with a lid

3 tablespoons Aubrey Organics Pure Aloe Vera gel

1 tablespoon Aura Cacia Jojoba Oil

1 tablespoon 365 Everyday Value® Organic Coconut Oil 

Directions:

Warm a clean saucepan on very low heat for 60 seconds, then remove from heat and add the coconut oil. Stir until the oil is liquefied. Next, add all ingredients to a clean jar and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate to preserve freshness.

To use, scoop out a bit, rub between your hands to liquefy and gently massage into the skin. Wipe away makeup and follow with your regular cleanser.

Exfoliant

Smoothing hand scrub

Exfoliation is the key to keeping your hands smooth and supple in every season.

Ingredients:

1 ½ teaspoons 365 Everyday Value® Organic Coconut Oil

½ teaspoon Aura Cacia Sweet Almond Oil

½ teaspoon Aura Cacia Jojoba Oil

3 drops essential oil (For calming and pampering, try jasmine, lavender or geranium. For energizing, try lemon, grapefruit or orange.)

1 heaping teaspoon 365 Everyday Value® Turbinado Raw Sugar

Directions:

Mix the oils in a small glass bowl or jar until fully combined. Add sugar and mix just enough to blend evenly into the oils. Scoop the scrub into the palms of your hands (best done over a sink) and work it into the skin. Allow the mixture to rest on the hands for 2 minutes, and then spend another minute scrubbing, with particular emphasis on dry and calloused areas. Rinse with water and use a towel to pat dry and remove excess oil. Do not follow with soap.

Lips

Lip scrub

Here’s an easy, 5-minute fix for chapped lips. 

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon 365 Everyday Value® Organic Coconut Oil

1 teaspoon of raw honey

1 ½ teaspoon 365 Everyday Value® Turbinado Raw Sugar

½ lemon

Directions:

Mix ingredients in a small bowl to make a sugary paste. Use a small toothbrush (a baby’s toothbrush works well) to dip into scrub. Use soft circular motions across your lips to exfoliate. Rinse with water. Don’t forget to apply lip balm afterward to seal in moisture and shine.
