 Affiliate Link Press Sample

New from Scentbird: 
Healing Crystal and Gemstone-Inspired Facial Masks!

You all many know Scentbird as a luxury fragrance monthly subscription service? Well, this past month, they released their NEW “Healing Crystal/ Gemstone Collection.” As you could imagine, I was highly intrigued. Scentbird is totally my go-to fragrance subscription. So, I had to check out these cute gem-inspired masks! 

This adorably packaged collection features five masks with the natural healing powers of Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Citrine, Moonstone, and Black Onyx. These masks soothe, refresh and revive the skin. Scentbirds Healing Crystal Mask Collection is designed to harness the unique holistic properties of gemstones, and target a variety of skin conditions, from anti-aging to inflammation. Whether looking for a moisturizing and nourishing treatment, cooling and calming or a warming skin detox, the Scentbird “Healing Crystal/ Gemstone Collection” offers a range of benefits and textures to personalize anyone’s skincare routine.

Here is the scoop from Scentbird on each mask:

Rose Quartz Nourishing Youth Mask -- Rosehip Seed Oil provides intense nourishment, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while honey locks in moisture for a soft & smooth complexion.

Amethyst Calming Cooling Mask -- A tranquil treat for tired skin, infused with calming amethyst. Powered by Centella Asiatica, a super-soothing white tea extract that helps to calm skin and reduce inflammation, our cooling mask offers sweet relief to sensitive and stressed skin.

Citrine Brightening Peel-Off Mask -- Banish imperfections and boost brilliance with radiant citrine. Energizing turmeric and Vitamin C help revitalize the appearance of dull & uneven skin, unveiling a more refined, refreshed and radiant complexion.

Moonstone Hydrating Sleeping Mask -- Ethereal moonstone imparts dreamy, dewy skin, infused with light. The lightweight, pillow-proof formula boasts Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture to the skin, for a luminous, lit-from-within glow.

Black Onyx Warming Detox Mask -- Your ultimate skin protector, black onyx strips away pore-clogging dirt, oil and pollution to purify skin. Black silt helps reduce the look of pores & keeps oil at bay, all without stripping skin of essential moisture.

You all know that I love doing weekly mask treatments. I just love my home "spa" nights! So, I am in the process of rotating these adorable Scentbird masks depending on what my skin needs at the moment. Right now, I am gravitating more towards the Amethyst Calming Cooling Mask to combat the effects of a busy Summer schedule and more sun exposure to my face. This mask is so soothing to my somewhat sensitive skin. I just love using it!

Essential Oil Remedies with Oilogic Roll Ons

 Affiliate Link Press Samples

You guys know that I am all about my essential oils, right? Well, I am always on the look out for great essential oil remedies. Recently, I tried these roll-ons from Oilogic and I just love them! Pre-made roll-ons are fantastic because they are such a time saver. No mixing needed. Oilogic Essential Oils are already blended and diluted so there’s no mixing involved, it’s easy to use and ready to go. Plus, the roll on bottles and carrying case are just so cute!

Oilogic’s convenient Essential Oils are clear of synthetics and impurities, making the products safe and effective natural remedy for adults, children and babies. I got to try out both the Baby/Toddler formulas as well as the adult formulas. I am using the Baby/Toddler versions on my kids (My kids are not babies nor toddlers, but they are little kids and need a lower concentration of essential oils.)

Oilogic uses 26 different Essential Oils, sourced from over 13 countries where plants are indigenous. With its line of Essential Oil Roll-Ons, Oilogic makes it easy to apply, absorb and provide solutions to common troubles.

Adult Formulas:
I got to try out Oilogic’s Rest & Sleep Roll On, Cough & Cold, and Itch Relief Roll On. Now, I haven't had any coughs nor colds since my product testing. So, I haven't tried that one as a remedy yet. However, I can tell you that the Itch Relief is soothing on Mosquito bites and that I love applying the Rest & Sleep to my wrists right before I go to bed for that soothing lavendar scent. 

For Kids/Babies & Toddlers:
As the demand for essential oils continues to rise with more people leaning toward natural methods of care, Oilogic has made it safe and impactful for babies and toddlers. Clear of synthetics and impurities, Oilogic’s fool-proof and convenient essential oils help calm and soothe children’s skin, stomach, mood and sleep for natural parenting support. 

I got to try out the set for kids that included a cute 3-roll-on bottle carrying case! The kit contained Stuffy Nose & Cough, Slumber & Sleep, and Cranky & Fussy roll-on bottles. My daughter especially loves the sleep formula.

Essential Oils are extracted from plants, fruits, herbs, barks, flowers and seeds and have been utilized by people since ancient times. Oilogic is made with 100% pure essential oils that are sourced from around the world, with each blend containing the right concentration of soothing oils, diluted appropriately with a carrier oil to create a safe, yet effective formula for kids and babies. 

Oilogic is available on, Target and Buy Buy Baby.

Smooth Perfected Skin with Osmosis Stem Factor Serum and Clear Plus+ Hydrating Mist

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Smooth Perfected Skin with Osmosis Stem Factor Serum and Clear Plus+ Hydrating Mist

Every once in awhile I stumble across a product or products that really just blow me away. Let me tell ya'll, I am so impressed with Osmosis and their Stem Factor Serum! 

Have you heard of Osmosis Skincare? It is a "medical grade" skincare line that is sold in spas and dermatologist's offices and online on sites that specialize in medical grade skincare. Osmosis has a different approach to treating your skin. Rather than attacking aging and breakouts with powerful ingredients that irritate (like most lines do), it targets your skin with healing ingredients that support the health of your skin. 

Honestly, when I started testing out the Stem Factor serum by Osmosis, I did expect it to be good. However, I didn't expect the results to be that noticable...but they were! I have been using the Stem Factor Serum plus the Clear Plus+ Activating Mist for about 2 months and absolutely love the results! My skin has a smooth, clear, even toned, and almost poreless look. It is hydrated and firm and just looks so healthy. It is almost hard to describe. However, it is noticable! I have continued to use my Rx Retin-A during my product testing a few nights a week (as I get fantastic results from that as well). What I think is happening is that they Osmois Stem Factor is healing any dryness, redness, and irritation that is secondary to Retin-A use. My skin has a healthy and plumped look. I feel that my fine lines are smoothed and the tone of my skin is so even and clear. Honestly, I have not had a breakout in forever since using this. Also, my pores are diminished.

My only minor critique is that the packaging is not very luxe for the price. However, since my product testing started, Osmosis has updated their packaging! So, the new packaging is apparently much nicer. I know that packaging is just packaging...however, it I am paying that much for a product, I do expect the packaging to be nice. 

Osmosis Stem Factor:
According to Osmosis, they use advanced technology utilizing exosomes that encapsulate the growth factors and proteins increasing penetration, stability and activating more receptors to enhance results. Over 150 different skin growth factors derived from adult stem cells create this magical serum that improves all aspects of skin aging and skin damage. It gently restores the repair process and stimulates new cells to build collagen and elastin, heal hyperpigmentation and reverse aging.

With the packaging and product makeover, Osmosis Stem Factor will now be called Osmosis +Skincare Growth Factor Serum. From Osmosis: The 'fountain of youth' in a bottle. This one-of-a-kind serum is powered by over 150 different growth factors with advanced technology to rejuvenate, heal, and protect for visibly younger-looking skin after just one use.

This mist is to be used immediately after Osmosis Serums to enhance penetration of the product and to boost hydration. I just spray into my hands and then pat it onto my face. I do find it to be very soothing to use. According to Osmosis, this product refreshes your complexion to maintain a balanced level of hydration. The spray quickly penetrates the outer dermis of your skin to firm, soothe and moisturize your texture. Hyaluronic acid is the key ingredient in this product.

Clear Plus is being replaced by a product called Osmosis +MD Boost Peptide Activating Mist. Since it is in the MD line, it will only be available by purchasing it through a licensed spa professional/salon.

How I Use Stem Factor and Clear Plus+:
I use these products together to maximize my results. After gently cleansing and washing my face, I apply one pump of Stem Factor in the evening. Immediately after, I spray the Clear Plus+ onto my hands and then pat it on my face. As soon as the products dry down, I top off with a moisturizer. I use these products on "nights off" of using my Retin-a treatment. 

Here is the new packaging:

Honestly, I love these products so much that I am sad that I am almost out of the Stem Factor serum! The product does go quickly and it is very expensive. Stem Factor retails for $130 and Clear Plus+ retails for $30 (I still have a ton of Clear Plus+ left). I am excited about the packaging and brand redesign and relaunch. I am hoping to get to try out the newly launched products and upgraded packaging. I will certainly update this post and give social media updates once I have tried the new products and packaging! :) I think it will certainly be a change for the better. The products themselves are fantastic. So, better packaging would just be the icing on the cake! :) 

Overall, I adore the Osmosis Stem Factor Serum used with the Clear Plus+ Activating Mist and I highly recommend them!

Smooth Your Summer Skin with Tree Hut

Smooth Your Summer Skin with Tree Hut:

Summer is in full swing! That means the weather is hot and shorts, swimwear, sandals, and sundresses are a weekly staple. Skin is exposed to the sun and the water. It is time to pamper your skin so that you can look your best in your summer wear.

Tree Hut can meet all of your smoothing and moisturizing needs with their popular Shea Sugar Scrubs and fantastic Body Lotions and Butters to keep your skin exfoliated, hydrated and romper-ready all summer long. The exfoliators are infused with Certified Shea Butter, and an array of natural oils, including Evening Primrose, Safflower Seed, Sweet Almond, Avocado, and Orange Oil.

I have long been a fan of Tree Hut's Body Butters and Body Lotions. Tree Hut's Coconut Lime Body Butter is seriously one of my favorite body butters ever! Today, I am going to dive into more details about their scrubs in particular. I do not always use scrubs. However, in the summer, a good body scrub is a necessity for me. Not only do I want smooth skin because of my bare attire. I also want a good body scrub to properly prep my skin and to maintain my skin for self-tanning. As anyone who self-tans knows, manual exfoliation is a MUST for good results.

Here is the scoop on Tree Hut Scrub Scents:

Coco Colada:
This new Tree Hut scent will have you dreaming of your next vacation! Coconut to make your skin feel moisturized and Pineapple bringing you much needed Vitamin C to help you prep for your next beach day.  

Matcha Mojito:
Craving a warm weather drink? Well, how about a body scrub that smells like one?! Infused with Green Tea, Mint and Lime Extracts, this scrub will leave your skin looking brighter and feeling smoother.

Tropical Mango:
Who doesn’t love summer in the Tropics?! Start your summer off with the Tropical Mango Shea Sugar Scrub. It is infused with Mango Puree that is packed with Vitamins and Minerals along with Orange Oil which is great for soothing dry, irritated skin.

Coconut Lime:
Exfoliate your skin with a fan- favorite from Tree Hut! Coconut Lime will fill your bathroom with the scents of summer and leave your skin glowing. Coconut Extract helps rejuvenate the skin and Lime Extract helps get rid of blemishes.

Honestly, the scents are all fantastic. So, it is hard to pick a favorite...but I do still think that the Coconut Lime is still my favorite for Summer. If you seriously want to treat your skin, pick up one of these amazing scrubs and pair it with Tree Hut's Body Lotions or Body Butters. You will be left with luxuriously soft and smooth skin, I promise!

There are so many products that I want to try from this line! Tree Hut has full line of bath and body products. I can't wait to explore this line further!!!
