My Top Five Beauty Products From Whole Foods

The only department in Whole Foods that I normally skip is the beauty department. It's true. I guess I've always just felt that the Whole Foods beauty department contained products that would be of little or no interest to me due to them smelling weird or my assumption that they were ineffective. Well we Read more

Clean George Chill Out Stick Review

clean-george-chill-out-stickI very much appreciate beauty products that are conveniently packaged, meaning that it’s easy for me to carry them around with me in my purse or gym bag and they are TSA approved for my carry-on.  I also love beauty products that contain ingredients, which are both organic and responsible.

Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter Review

Nourish #Organic Raw Shea ButterSince moving to California, my skin has faced its share of challenges trying to acclimate to a much drier climate than I was used to in Miami.  My usual moisturizers have just not been able to live up to the challenge, even the moisturizers that got me through the driest winters in Minnesota have fallen short.  Not wanting to go through summer with dry, scaly skin I opted to give pure shea butter a try.  Normally I would not use pure shea butter on my skin in the summer. Even in winter I tend to only use it on my feet, elbows and knees, but nothing else seems to be working so it was definitely worth a try.  That said, for the past week I have been relying on Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter to remedy my dry skin issues.
