Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review

**disclosure: The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex Cystals Aromatherapy in exchange for a product review. However all the opinions expressed here are my own 


I'm a member of Purex Insiders and had the opportunity to try Purex Crystals Aromatherapy in wash scent booster.  Scented with floral and citrus that have been infused with aromatherapy oils to permeate your clothing with stimulating aromas that enliven your spirit.

You add the crystals right in your washer at the start of the cycle allowing the crystals to freshen your clothes, and not only for days but weeks.


The new scents are:
Well Being brightens any mood with the happy fragrance of fresh blossoms
Energy helps you tackle any day with the stimulating power of citrus
Serenity keeps you calm all day long with the gentle scent of water-lilies

I received the Well Being scent, and it smells like fresh cut flowers.  I love adding scent booster in the laundry because knowing my clothes have that extra kick of freshness makes me feel good about wearing them.

**disclosure: "The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own"


I'm always looking for moisturizing body washes that also hydrate and nourish my skin.  I believe I found it in the new Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash. It's the latest member of the Dial Coconut water line and the first to contain coconut water and energizing mango.  

Coconut water is a leading trend known to be rich in antioxidants and electrolytes that help provide replenishing hydration.

I am a member of Purex Insiders and had the opportunity to try this new body wash.  First thing I did when I received it was open it up to smell it.  The scent is fresh and clean.  And with the great scent of  mango, it reminds me of the tropics.   Although I've never been in the tropics I can close my eyes and pretend.  

This is a great body wash for the whole family leaving your skin feeling nourished and moisturized without over drying.  

The new Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash is now available at your local retailer.

ONE reader will win TWO coupons to try Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango for FREE.  Expiration of the coupons is 9/30/2014.  Enter below via the rafflecopter form.  Giveaway ends 8/29/14

Adovia Facial Lift and Firm Serum with Dead Sea Minerals and Vitamin C Review

I had the opportunity to try the Adovia Facial Lift and Firm Serum with Dead Sea Minerals and Vitamin C.   Being in my 40's, I'm always searching for the "next best thing" when it comes to anti-wrinkle creams.

With the use of the product you can  Achieve An Instant Lift and Anti Aging Effects on Your Skin and Delivers Anti Wrinkle Results Over Time.  It contains a High Concentration of Vitamin C for Anti Wrinkle Antioxidant Skin Protection and Formulated with a High Concentration of Dead Sea Minerals and Salt - 21 Minerals Essential for Skin Health and Beauty.

I have been using this product for about 3 1/2 weeks now although I haven't noticed any huge changes yet I do love how light it feels going on.  I normally use this in the A.M. underneath my other creams that I use to combat the signs of aging and it didn't feel heavy at all.  One or two pumps covers completely and evenly.  Even though I haven't seen any changes in my skin since using this product I know the benefits of the Vitamin C and the Dead Sea Minerals and Salts is beneficial for healing and beautifying my skin. 

                                                                          Picture courtesy of

Only issue I had was the dispenser of the bottle.  After using it for about 2 weeks I noticed it wasn't pumping.  I opened it up and found the tube that dispenses the lotion was too long for the bottle and snapped so now I have to unscrew the cap to get to the product.  Other than that, I will continue to use the product in my search for a more youthful appearance!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Valentia’s Even Glow Vitamin C Serum Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I'm always searching for products that will reduce the signs of aging.  I'm in my 40's and don't want to look it either.  When I was asked to review the Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum I wasn't going to say no.

Vitamin C has been found to lessen the effects of sun damaged skin including sunburn, sun spots, redness, and wrinkles.  Along with reducing the signs of aging, Vitamin C is necessary for everyday maintenance to smooth and strengthen the skin as well as balancing free radicals before any damage can be done.

The ingredients in the Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum is 98% natural ingredients to strengthen and support the Vitamin C efficacy. These include:

Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness.  These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C
Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.
Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion
Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

As soon as I received the product, I immediately started using it during my nightly routine.  After washing, a small amount of the serum goes on first.  The consistency of the serum isn't very thin nor thick and it has a nice orange-y smell.

Once applied you need to wait until it's absorbed to finishing applying your other nightly creams. It also is not oily at all, your skin soaks it right up.   I've been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I must say it has corrected the unevenness of my skin tone.  My 15 year old daughter and I recently had our picture taken together and the compliments that we both look like sister made me feel really good.  So maybe I can say Thanks to the Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum for helping me achieve what I have been searching for.....youthfulness!
