Zakia’s Morocco: Moroccan Hammam Home Spa Kit Review

Zakia’s Morocco: Moroccan Hammam Home Spa Kit and Shea Butter – Review & Giveaway

There is nothing like the spa experience, the feeling of being freshed and ready for what ever comes next. The downside to spa days is the cost, often times they are expensive and once they are over, they are over.

One of the best gift I ever received was a “spa at home kit” which brought the spa experience home. I love trying new spa treatments, and giving myself an excuse to decompress  without feeling guilty.  When I received an email about a traditional Moroccan Home Spa Kit from Zakia’s Morocco, I knew I wanted to give it a try.

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and Protectant Wipes Review

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and Protectant Wipes Review

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and WipesWhen we are young we do not consider that the hands, hair and body we have is the only one we are given, and this must make it last in the best condition possible.

I am a crafter, and as a crafter I end up washing my hands many times, and this can cause them to dry and crack. It also happens when I do not drink enough water. As I have approached the age I am currently (almost 6 months into 40) I realize that keeping my skin and hands healthy is paramount next to my internal health.

I have done previous reviews for Shoplet in the past and each time I discover a useful item and this product review is no different.

I was sent Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Protectant Barrier Cream Cloths and Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Cream – Moisturizer.

The Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Protectant Barrier Cream Cloths are thick and soft clothes. The clothes come  or pre-moistened but that they are not sopping wet, but rather nicely moistened. The clothes leave skin feeling clean and moisturized and the cloths are non-irritating, non-sensitizing and have been pediatrician and dermatologist tested. The only precaution is that these are NOT flushable, so keep that in mind when using them. Each package has 8 thick pre-moistened cloths per package.

The Beehive by Infusion Organique Review

The Beehive Candle and Lotion Review and Giveaway

The Beehive Lotion and Candle by Cosmetix WestOne of my favorite scents is Lemon, well not just scent but also lemon flavor anything. I went on a chain of meals that consisted of lemon chicken and nothing else. I felt bad for my husband Jason that his pallet was not receiving any sort of flavor stimulation. Flavor aside, I love the freshness of a good lemon scent and will usually purchase the item in question.

Back in July I had the opportunity to review Infusion Organique by Cosmetix West. The candle that I reviewed remains one of my favorite candles, and is only burned on special occasions. When I was doing my research for that review I saw that they had a couple different brands under the Cosmetix West umbrella – one of them being “The Beehive“.

Anatomicals Hand Soap and Lotion Review

5 products AnatomicalsI have mentioned before that I did not grow up a girly girl. I avoided make-up other than special occasions, really never got the appeal of heels (this may be in part to being 5’7 and not wanting to over tower people). I never really collected or used scented lotions or body scrubs either. Then there was a shift that occurred and all of a sudden it became an enjoyable activity to collect and use these scented products and I began my collection.

Since this discovery I enjoy soaps, body lotions, and everything in between. I have discovered that I like the fruit smells over the floral, but love the floral scents and could not choose a true favorite. The fruit combinations are not only fragrant smelling but the fruits that are used have benefits are also included. I love when I discover a company who uses this combination to create quality body products – enter Anatomicals products.

Anatomicals was launched in New Zealand and whose products are all paraben free. The reason that the products being paraben free is a good thing is because parabens are the preservatives included in many beauty products. Parabens are used in shampoos, conditioners, shaving gels, personal lubricants, make-up, toothpaste as well as many other beauty products. Without the parabens included you end up with a much more natural product.
