Favorite Things: The Amazing Beautifying Composition By Aveda

Posted on Updated on

20140117-144013.jpgOne of my Favorite things is this amazing beautifying composition by Aveda! I love the multi-use capabilities to its amazing scent; a balancing aroma featuring organic lavender, rosemary and bergamot. I just can’t get enough! Here are 8 of my favorite ways to use this amazing all over body oil, though I’m sure there are 100’s more:

  1. Use it as a leave in conditioning treatment: add a few drops to your scalp and comb through to remedy dry, parched hair. Let the oil soak in over night, and rinse out in the morning.
  2. To restore dry hands and feet: massage oil into hands and feet to relieve dryness and restore moisture.
  3. As a moisturizer booster: Add a few drops to your daily facial moisturizer or body lotion to leave skin feeling soft and supple.
  4. As a massage oil: use it as a massage oil for your scalp, neck and shoulders. The amazing blend of rosemary, lavender and bergamot will take you to relaxed bliss.
  5. Use it as a makeup remover: jojoba oil in beautifying composition helps to erase even the most stubborn traces of your waterproof mascara.
  6. As a cuticle oil: use it as a cuticle oil for at home manicures.
  7. As an eye treatment: substitute beautifying composition for your nightly eye cream to prevent dryness and wrinkles.
  8. Use it in your bath: add a few drops to your bath water for a soothing and nourishing bath.

Dollar Shave Club: “You Know What Feels Great? Changing My F**ken Blade Every Week.”

Posted on Updated on

I recently joined the Dollar Shave Club and is my newest favorite thing. I was totally lured in by the clever viral marketing video (above) talking about how inexpensive their shaving equipment is. They deliver great blades to me every month for just a few dollars. No more schlepping to the drugstore and no more overpriced, ridiculous shave tech that I don’t need.

20140109-154712.jpgIt’s very simple setup, select a blade, choose your plan and checkout. The first month of your service with Dollar Shave Club you get a handle and four heads from a selection of the three choices you pick from.

20140109-154723.jpgThe Razor Blades ship safely in a protective plastic cartridge.  You can quit any time without penalty or change the frequency of your delivery.

20140109-154742.jpgThe razor handle is ergonomically designed to feels good in your hand, but it’s relatively heavy. This is perfect for both genders, so you can share your subscription with someone. It’s does a great job for the face, legs, armpits, or anything else.

Nature Republic 100% Natural Jelly Cleansing Puff – Red Clay

Posted on Updated on

A friend first introduced another brand that was much more expensive and came in only one type. We came across a much cheaper brand and came it three types.

1. Red Clay – for oil control.
2. Charcoal – for deep cleansing and purify the skin.
3. Vegetable – balancing skin pH.

I was attracted by the description of this puff which is made of knojac (jelly) and natural Korean Red Clay which is eco-friendly and safe for the skin.

To use this puff, apply a small amount of your everyday face wash on the puff and let it bubble up. Then, just cleanse your face like usual. I like to use the flat part instead of the round part to cleanse my face since I can work with it better, but it’s up to you. Use the rounded side to cleanse your face near the eyes. This puff lasts about 3-4 months with frequent use.
