Review: Create Cosmetics Tea Tree Lotion + Giveaway


I have pretty crappy skin, so I was excited to try the Tea Tree Oil Acne Lotion from Create Cosmetics.  Since becoming pregnant, I am having breakouts like crazy, so I should have known something was different (It’s a girl!!).  I usually have really nice skin when I am pregnant, but not this time!! 

I really love tea tree oil on its own because it’s such a cure-all.  I have used it for many things that ail me (and my family), so I had high expectations of it.  I like to use the lotion after I shower and wash my face.  It’s a little tingly and makes my skin feel cool.  Tea Tree Oil is naturally anti-inflammatory, so it takes the red out of your face pretty quickly.  It’s also anti-bacterial so it helps to keep all the grimy germs that love to clog your pores at bay. 

The lotion is also full of great ingredients like Shea butter and Jojoba oil which nourish and moisturize your skin.  I noticed a really big difference after about two weeks of using the lotion.  I definitely continue to use it as a preventative because it’s such a great moisturizer for my skin.

Review: Clever Yoga Mat Strap + Giveaway


When I got my awesome Yoga Design Lab mat, it didn’t come with a strap.  I was pretty bummed about this because it’s hard to keep it rolled up on its own.  I thought about making a bag or something for it, but I am so bad about making things for myself.  Eventually, I came upon a review opportunity for the Clever Yoga Mat Strap. 

Life is SO much easier with a strap on your yoga mat.  It’s just a simple piece of 100% all natural cotton webbing with a loop on each end, but it has MANY uses!  Let me tell you about them…

Your strap keeps your mat from unrolling and falling all over the place.  They aren’t small when unrolled, so they can be a tripping hazard if unrolled. […] Continue reading »

Review: Organic Vanilla Bean Powder

I love to cook from scratch, so having high quality ingredients is a big deal.  I got to sample the Organic Vanilla Bean Powder from Sunny Day Organics and I’m pretty sure I will never go back to “regular” vanilla again!!  The Organic Vanilla Bean Powder is made from 100% raw and organic vanilla beans.  They are gluten free, vegan and loaded with antioxidants.  This vanilla powder also have trace amounts of minerals such as potassium and iron. 

The powder can be used in place of vanilla extract in pretty much any recipe.  It can also be added to coffee or smoothies.  It can be used to make a mosquito repellent, which I haven’t tried yet because I haven’t run out of my current bug spray.  It can also be used to add aromatherapy fragrance to many DIY beauty products!  I love it most in smoothies and baking!  I just LOVE the fresh, strong taste of the vanilla.
