Skin care tip: Do you have Psoriasis or Eczema? Try Maxasorb B12 in a Cream

I don’t mention it all that often, but some of you might know that I suffer from Eczema. I have been for years. Eczema is a term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. I have Atopic Eczema, which is a skin condition that causes intense itching and then a red, raised rash. Luckily, it’s not contagious and also it’s not constant. It comes in flares: sometimes it’s extremely itchy, sometimes I can hardly tell it’s there. I was prescribed a steroid cream by my dermatologist, which I use during flare-ups. On...

Beauty from within: Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea

​​ I’m continuing my Beauty from Within series with my favorite tea at the moment. When you first think of Dandelion Root Tea (paardebloem wortel in Dutch), you don’t think of anything special. At least I didn’t. Until I received it in the mail and I looked up its properties. Its medicinal benefits is what attracted me to this tea, along with the fact that it’s caffeine-free (caffeine makes me jittery!). I could drink this tea all day long! Dandelion root has been used throughout history for its medicinal and dietary properties. These days, dandelion root tea is used as...

Review: my experience with the VOLOOM Hair Volumizing Iron

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! Have you heard of VOLOOM, a styling tool? Well, neither had I. That is, until a few weeks ago when I was introduced to VOLOOM and had the chance to test it out. Warning: this post contains a lot of pictures! I want you show you the tool as best as I can, since it’s pretty much one of a kind. Also, I want to show you what it does to my hair. Scroll down for my review. 🙂 ​ ​​ ​​​What it is:​​​​​​ ​ ​ VOLOOM is the first hair volumizing...

Review: Youth Glow Eye Gel by goPURE Naturals

Today I have an eye cream for you that’s a little more affordable than the previous eye cream I reviewed. 😀 I’ve been alternating between the two, because hey…the other one is expensive, try to use it sparingly. The one I’m reviewing today is by GoPURE Naturals and it’s the Youth Glow Eye Gel. The Youth Glow Eye Gel is said to relieve eye puffiness, dark circles, crow’s feet and wrinkles. It has natural ingredients and is paraben free. GoPURE Naturals is a new brand, it was started by a new mom, who was shocked to discover how many products...

Beauty tool you need: the Cassani FOGLESS Shower Mirror

There are some beauty tools that you thought you would never need, until you get them. For me, it’s the Clarisonic Plus, Sigma’s Beauty Dry’n Shape, the Tweezerman tweezer and my Derma Roller. I also thought I didn’t need a mirror in the shower, until I actually got one! Oh man, where has this thing been all my life? It’s so handy! :-D​​ ​​​ My hubby uses it to shave: there’s NO messy clean-up afterward and the steam softens his skin, which gives him a closer shave. We both use it to check for soap residue when we’re done showering....

Giveaway! Win a $20 Walmart Gift Card, courtesy of the new Gillette Venus Swirl razor #NewVenusSwirl

Spring is here! It’s time to shave those legs, ladies! 😀 I’m sure I’m not the only one who ‘forgets’ to shave their legs in the colder months. I’m one of those people who have to shave their legs every day and if I’m wearing jeans on a daily basis, why bother? Now that Spring is here, I really don’t have any excuse not to shave my legs. I don’t know about you, but I love wearing dresses in the Spring and Summer (they’re easy to throw on and you really go wrong with a cute dress!), so shaved legs...

Beauty from within: Beauty & Biotin Bursts supplements by Neocell

I’ve been slacking on my skin care, because of the traveling lately. When I left for LA and Hawaii I only packed the absolute essentials as far as skin care goes, because I didn’t want to pack stuff I eventually wouldn’t use. So no scrubs, masks, peels, supplements etc. Unfortunately, my skin was really acting up during my trip and I wish I would have brought all of my skin care and supplements. The supplements for skin/hair/nails I had been taking prior were clearly working for me! A few weeks before my trip I had started taking beauty supplements by...

‘No Makeup’ Makeup using Victoria Jackson Cosmetics

I had never heard of Victoria Jackson Cosmetics until a few weeks ago, when I was contacted to try a few of their products. Because I would never say ‘no’ to new makeup (and neither should you!), I happily started using four of their bestsellers: the Foundation Duo, a Perfect Everyday Blush, the Lush Mascara and the Gentle Eye & Face Make Up Remover. 😀 One of the slogans behind the brand is ‘let your natural beauty shine through‘ and ‘this is not a mask. This is make up‘, both things I can really relate to. I don’t wear makeup...

Review: Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron (+ before & after pics of my sister-in-law!)

I’m back from Hawaii! How do you get your hair so straight? That’s a question that I get A LOT during my trip. I have naturally curly hair, but I mostly wear it straight. It has become my signature hair style. For me, it’s just easier than having to keep my curls look good/frizz-free between washes. The way I get my hair straight is to blow dry it after every wash and then straighten it with a good flat iron. The flat iron I’ve been using lately is the Diamond flat iron by Irresistible Me. You might know Irresistible Me...

Review: Scentbird, a monthly perfume subscription service (+ coupon code)

Today I have something to share with you that has been very convenient to me during my stay here in Hawaii! 🙂 A few weeks before my trip I was contacted by a company called Scentbird. Scentbird is a new luxury fragrance subscription service and if you sign up, each month you’ll receive a 30-day supply of a luxury perfume of your choice. It’s a personalized subscription and you will only receive perfumes you want to try.

Review: NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy

Confession: I’m getting older and I hate it! Even though I think I’m still 20 years old, the truth is…I’m not. I will be 36 years old in August, which means I’ll be closer to 40 than to 30. Yikes! I know that I’m getting older because of the grey hairs I sometimes get (I pluck them as soon as I spot them!) and the increasing fine lines around my eyes. 🙁 I don’t mind the grey hairs as much as I can always start dying my hair once it gets out of hand. I do mind the fine lines...

Mommy review: SoCozy 3 in 1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash

It’s been a few days, huh? I’m actually writing this from Hawaii! 🙂 We left on Monday and we’ll be here for the next two weeks for my brother-in-law’s wedding.

So today I’d like to share a new line of salon quality hair products for kids that I’ve been using on my toddler’s hair, called SoCozy Professional Hair Care for Children. You can find SoCozy on SoCozy.com and their products are also available at Target. ​ ​​​​​ This is the first ever professional line of hair care products made with...
