Hello Beauties! I am so excited to share a new skincare line I got to try for review. Bloom Skincare The ingredients are amazing. And I am trying this year to go more clean and green products for my skin.  So many chemicals in skincare and makeup that can effect your hormones and just not good for your skin. I am guilty for loving some global brands. But I don’t like that they test on animals and the chemicals are just outrageous that is in them. I mean some ingredients have over a hundred. Crazy. ( Click on any of the highlighted words and it will lead you to one of their sites. Instagram, Facebook or Amazon.) So lets talk about this brand.  I received 5 products. Almost the whole line. I did not get the body lotions because I am still testing for a panel at this time. But  they are cruelty free and honey is in their ingredients along with some beautiful essential oils. This is their Facial Cleansing Mousse.  All the jars are plastic. Nothing fancy. The bottle for this product is ve…

The Best Oil for Your Skin-Prickly Pear

Hello Beauties!
I have a deep love for essential oils. They are my skincare life. I incorporate many for a double cleanse,masks and as treatments. I use different ones for how my skin is doing. More rosehip and almond with a splash of castor oil for my dry dry days.  I have tested and reviewed many many. I came across Sunia K on Instagram and was so impressed with all the follows and love for this product. I was amazed! I had to get me a bottle and test it out. I have to say it is worth every dime. And as we age we want our skin to look the up most best. Plant based and good fats is another way for great skin. YOu know I have to throw that it in. Diet is important.

The Glowing Green Smoothie

Drinking the Glowing Green Smoothie ® (GGS) is a great way to incorporate tremendous amounts of greens into your diet – far more than just eating your veggies. A serving of the GGS contains over 3 cups of dark leafy green vegetables, which is more than many people get in a week!
Greens have more valuable nutrients than any other food group on the planet. You might be surprised to learn that greens even have high-quality, easily-assimilated amino acids – enough to build the protein that supports the muscle mass of the mighty, greens-eating gorilla, which pound-for-pound is the strongest animal on earth! Blending helps make greens’ full spectrum of nutrition readily available to the body.

Nutrients are encased inside plant cells and getting their benefits requires these cells’ walls to be ruptured. Greens need to be worked down to a creamy consistency, but most people simply don’t chew that much! Blending addresses this problem, helping your body absorb the maximum amount of nutrition …

The Best Mascaras 2017

The 30-Second Review A quick flick of even a so-so mascara can make a big impact, but the best mascara goes the extra mile to add that one crucial millimeter of length. After hours of research sorting through the hundreds of mascaras out there, I found that the hype for my top picks is here. Now some I have used and tried and true. Some are ones that have been all the rage that I have not tried. After all this research, it was clear why some mascaras have a cult following — the best options can seriously upgrade your natural eyelashes and still leave you in complete control over how minimalist or maximalist you want your look to be. Here are the 7 best mascaras: Benefit Cosmetics They're Real!
