Can Ultrasound Improve the Look of Skin?

I'll be honest, I was not very familiar with the world of cosmetic ultrasound treatments when I decided to try the Mira-Skin Ultrasound device. Upon doing my research, I learned that ultrasound is a non-surgical/non-invasive treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultrasound uses the body's Read more

Eco-Beauty by La Fresh 100% Natural Massage Oils

Massages after a long day or after a few hours at the gym are just heaven. And just pure bliss if the massage oil being used is therapeutic and smells divine. EcoBeauty® by La Fresh have some amazing massage oils and I was lucky enough to be sent bottles of their Energize and Detox massage oils to use.

100% natural, these oils are a blend of olive, grape seed, jojoba, sesame and vitamin E; there is Chinese lemongrass essential oil for Detox and essential oil of Italian orange for Energize. Both smell heavenly! As a masseur wasn’t readily available to me, I used the Energize oil after a shower and yes, Energize it does! The orange aroma is invigorating and leaves a light refreshing scent on your skin that makes me sniff myself (not a good look in public), several times a day. I love that each bottle has a dropper so it’s easy to get the right amount of oil. These oils are so versatile; they can also be used in a diffuser or in your bath… Read more

Sensory Fusion from Aromafloria

If you love Aromafloria’s natural bath and body products, then you’ll love their Sensory Fusion line of organic body butters. This collection is a blend of ingredients to create fantastic scented lotions while soothing dry skin. I received Kiwi Coconut, Mango Ginger, Honey Papaya and Pomegranate.

Sticking to my staple summer sent, Kiwi Coconut was my favorite. I don’t know what it is about that coconut smell in warmer weather…it makes me feel like I’m living the island life here on the lake. These body butters are a mix of shea butter and aloe, so they are both hydrating as they are soothing. I used the Honey Papaya last summer and I cannot begin to tell you how lovely it made my skin feel on my sun parched skin. And yes, despite wearing sunscreen, I still managed to get a few sunburns (lesson learned to re-apply every 2 hours.) The whipped body butter felt so good on my skin as it melted it from the heat my skin generated from the sunburn.  Read more
