Blue Lagoon Anti-Aging Day Cream Review and Giveaway

>> Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Well, I just heard about the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa located in Iceland and I must say, it sounds fabulous! The Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater is a part of an ecocycle where nature and science work in harmony. The geothermal seawater comes into contact with cooling magmatic intrusions and captures the earth’s minerals, resulting in this unique natural source known for its healing power and actives. The readers of “Conde Nast Traveller” voted Blue Lagoon as the best medical spa worldwide!

For those of us that can't visit the Blue Lagoon Spa at the moment, they have created a line of Blue Lagoon skin care products that are designed to provide you with the energy of the geothermal seawater and its active ingredients: minerals, silica and algae. They offer a variety of face and skin care ranging from Silica Mud Mask to Mineral Intensive Cream.

"Blue Lagoon Iceland skin care, a true naturceutical brand, provides a perfect harmony between nature and scienceThe Blue Lagoon natural ingredients and products are both in- vitro and in- vivo tested to prove their results they are designed to deliver. The production methods are green and environmentally friendly. Our high-performance formulations pamper all the senses and make your daily skin care regime a joyful Icelandic experience."

I was lucky enough to get to try Blue Lagoon Anti-Aging Day Cream. This intensive collagen care day cream is enriched with patent-pending natural Blue Lagoon deep-penetrating complex and Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater. Blue Lagoon Anti-Aging Day Cream helps boost skin’s natural defense system and prevent UV-induced collagen degradation. This innovative formula is designed to help prevent premature skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles. It contains SPF 15. I found that it went on nicely and sunk right in without leaving an oily feeling or appearance and yet it did leave my very dry skin feeling moisturized. I enjoy using the Blue Lagoon Anti-Aging Day Cream. Of course, my daughter wanted to see what all the fuss was about too!

One lucky reader will receive the 50ml Blue Lagoon Anti-Aging Day Cream- daily care moisturizing and nourishing cream enriched with patent-pending natural Blue Lagoon bl_m5 complex² and Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater. ($145 value)

Reducing Paper Consumption and Recycling Paper Makes a Huge Difference- Some Statistics that Remind You Why You Should Be Green

According to Wiki Answers, the average business uses about 1 pound of paper per day per employee! Do you think you could use less paper? How about your office or school?

Once you reduce your paper consumption as much as you can, the next step is recycling. Wiki Answers suggests that recycling one ton of paper saves:
* approximately 13 trees
* 2.5 barrels of oil
* 4100 Kilowatt hours of Electricity
* 4 cubic meters of landfill, 141 cubic feet
* 31,780 liters of water, or 8,395 gallons
* 60 pounds less of air pollution

StunningPaper Recycling Facts (from
* If all our newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year!
* The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years if we recycled it all!
* In 1993, U.S. paper recovery saved more than 90,000,000 cubic yards of landfill space.

I hope these statistics inspire you to reduce, reuse, and recycle all the paper you are responsible for and maybe even to help get paper recycling into your office and/ or schools!

Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub Review and a 5 Winner Giveaway

Everyone is familiar with Tiger Balm right? It has always been in my household since I was little and remember stealing wiffs of it as a kid. In my family, we always used as a topical pain reliever for neck and shoulder tightness. It feels great with a massage!

Well, now Tiger Balm has a new product- Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub. It provides fast, soothing relief for neck and shoulder pain and the aches caused by work stress, tension, and sitting at a desk for long periods of time. I thought that was what the old Tiger Balm did for me so I wondered what the difference was. However, as soon as I got a tube of the Neck and Shoulder Rub and squeezed some out on my fingers I could see the difference. The Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub looks like a thick white lotion. The water-based blend of camphor and menthol gives Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub a clean, non-greasy feel while the vanishing scent makes it practical for any social or office situation! And it still feels just has amazing! I had a headache the other day and I am pregnant so I am not taking any pain relievers. My muscles in my neck were super tight and I thought of the Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub. I pulled it out and rubbed in on my neck and it felt really nice. Then a minute later it felt really great! It gave me a warming sensation that helped loosen my neck muscles up and I really loved the fast relief!

For over 100 years:
"Tiger Balm's time-proven blend of herbal ingredients provides safe and effective topical pain relief without the pills for sore muscles, arthritis, neck and shoulder stiffness, and just about any other aches and pains that may come your way."

The New Generation Lunch Box Helps Green Your School Lunches and Saves You Money!

>> Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The New Generation Lunch Box by BrightBin helps you pack a more environmentally friendly waste-free lunch and saves you money! BrightBin estimates that using the New Generation Lunch Box will allow you to purchase 1000 less plastic bags each year with a savings of $60 on plastic bags!

The New Generation Waste-Free Lunch box can be used on its own as a lunch box or can be inserted inside any insulated lunch bag. The New Generation Lunch Box replaces plastic bags, reusable bags, and small food storage containers. The New Generation Lunch Box has an advantage over using individual food containers because:

1. Kids tend to lose the lids of containers when parents try to pack a waste-free lunch. Replacing the lost lids is costly. The New Generation Lunch Box has a lid that is attached so there are no separate pieces to get lost.

2. Looking for mis-matched lids is time consuming, especially when in a hurry to get off to work or take the kids to school. The New Generation Lunch Box offers ease and convenience because parents will not have to waste time looking for lids.

Another nifty thing about the The New Generation Waste-Free Lunch Box is that the divided compartments serve to help kids learn about healthy portions. “Super sized” is not HEALTHY and this lunch box helps kids pack healthy amounts.

Of course, when packing a waste-free "green" lunch, having a lunch box free from BPA, lead, phthalates, and PVC is paramount to ensure our children's health and the health of the environment. That is why third party safety testing is conducted to ensure that the New Generation Lunch Boxes are made of a pure polypropylene plastic that is completely safe for kids- free of BPA, lead, phthalates, and PVC.

Reasons to check out BrightBin for waste-free lunch box options:
1. Easy to Use
2. Non-Toxic
3. Waste Free
4. Save Money
5. Save Time
6. Save the Environment- Read more about plastic bags staggering facts and statistics.


Ozone Designer Fashion Socks Review and Giveaway

Ozone Design is devoted entirely to putting fashion and fun into socks and tights... to bring spirit and passion to one of the most intimate and neglected parts of our wardrobe.

Who knew socks could be so exciting and fun right? I ran across Ozone socks and I knew I wanted some. All my socks were boring. So I picked out some cute numbers to jazz things up a little and give some fun to my winter wardrobe. I have to tell you that something totally unexpected happened- I got a compliment from my husband! For those of you that think this is no big deal, he is not the type that gives them out very frequently! He actually saw me wearing my Ozone short socks and said, "I like your socks" as he was walking by. No solicitation at all. I was impressed. If my husband noticed my socks, I can't wait to show them off to fashion forward people!

I also got a pair of fun Ozone knee high socks. These are super cute and fun for wearing with a skirt and still keeping my legs warm or wearing on a snowy day under my pants to stay extra toasty warm.

I love all of the different pattens Ozone has to choose from- just endless! They also have over the knee socks, tights and men's socks too!

One lucky reader will receive two pairs of Ozone socks. (Winner gets to chose socks up to a $70 value.)

Teatulia 100% Organic Tea Review and Giveaway

>> Friday, December 10, 2010

I love tea. I suppose it is the English blood in me! I recently discovered Teatulia- 100% organic, ultra premium, hand-picked, single estate tea. Sounds good right? I thought so too! They offer a line of nine different varieties of organic teas and herbal infusions including Teatulia Black, Teatulia Green, Teatulia White, Earl of Bengal, Bengal Breakfast, Neem Nectar, Tulsi Infusion, Lemongrass Herbal Infusion, and Ginger Herbal Infusion. No pesticides, machinery or unnatural irrigation are used in the cultivation of Teatulia tea. I also love Teatulia's sustainable packaging which consists of compostable tubes, labels made from post-consumer paper, water-based inks and dyes, and biodegradable silken pyramid tea bags.

While ongoing research is being conducted on the health benefits of tea, studies
suggest a relationship between regular tea consumption and:
Reduced risk of heart disease, heart attack and stroke
Reduced risk of certain cancers
The prevention of blood clots
Lowered cholesterol
Improved oral health
Improved bone health and reduced risk of osteoporosis
Strengthened immune system
Decreased risk of developing kidney stones

I love all tea but since I am pregnant, I am trying to stick to herbal infusions or white and green tea which are naturally super low in caffeine. I was able to try Teatulia's Caffeine-Free Ginger Herbal Infusion which was a loose leaf mix of small, delicate ginger bits with broken Vasaka leaf.
"Bold, broad spiciness. Initial sips are a lovely intense pronounced flavor, spicy and peppery with sweet overtones. Mellows after three minutes in the cup with just the right amount of heat. Nice any time, but especially after a meal."
I found it to be very nice and well balanced without too much spice or pungency but with plenty of flavor.

I also tried Teatulia 100% Organic White Tea in the pyramid tea bags with white tea half-inch needles.
"Delicately rich with a hint of peach. Excellent choice for starting off a hot summer day or relaxing in the early evening. Also a perfect choice for those new to tea-- the sweet, subtle flavor is a lovely introduction to the world of tea."
I found the white tea to be extremely rich in flavor compared to many white teas I have tried. It was really lovely and I actually used each tea bag for three brews. They were just so full of flavor I couldn't waste any!

Teatulia's Organic Green Tea is some of the best I have had.
"Medium body with a grassy, fresh, slightly vegetal flavor. Slightly astringent finish with a refreshing cooling quality. Perfect any time of day for green tea lovers."
I loved the flavor of this green tea. It was very full bodied and again so full of flavor that I got three brewings out of a single bag. I think the Teatulia tea is so full of flavor because it is so fresh. There is no middle man, no bulk buying tea warehouses so it comes directly to the customer in a very fresh state. The result is really lovely, full flavor on all the teas I tried.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS: Teatulia will provide one lucky reader with THREE canisters of organic Teatulia Tea (16 tea bags in each canister) The winner will be able to select the teas. (Approximate retail value $30.)

Giveaway Dates: December 10- December 27, 2010 Midnight CST

Enfusia and Cocoon Organic Skincare Products

>> Thursday, December 9, 2010

My skin always gets really dry in the winter, especially my hands so I love a good quality lotion that really protects and heals. That is why I was pleased to discover Enfusia's line of organic bath and body products as well as Cocoon, their organic bath and body care for kids.

"Enfusia’s® line of bath and body products are made with organic and natural botanical ingredients and extracts. For centuries, plants, herbs, and essential oils have been used for the vitamins and nutrients they deliver to the skin. We fragrance with 100% pure essential oils. Essential oils have aromatherapeutic properties that benefit the body, mind, and soul. All of our products are sulfate, paraben & wax free. Our line of luxurious and soothing organic products has expanded to address the special needs of the most precious and sensitive skin of all… a child’s. The Cocoon line of organic products includes a hair and body wash, a gentle moisturizing lotion, and soothing massage oil."

Enfusia organic bath and body care for women includes Organic Body Lotion in 8 different concoctions, Organic Body Wash in 6 different scents, Spa Bars, Dead Sea Salts & Scrub, Pink Ribon Collection and Fizz & Foam Bath Bombs. I find a nice warm bath so relaxing and great for taking off the winter chill. I was able to try the pink grapfruit Fizz & Foam Bath Bomb. It comes wrapped like a present in a fancy patterned cellophane. My daughter spotted it right away. "Ooohh...What's this mama?" "That's for me!" I told her! It is huge and I broke it into two parts. The bath bomb is really fun for bathing because not only does it have a lovely relaxing scent but it effervesces while you bath and little tiny bubbles collect on your skin! Then of course, your skin gets to soak up all the good essential oils that are in the bath bombs while you enjoy the treat. My daughter ended up getting to enjoy the rest of the bomb since she kept requesting it! She loved the way it fizzed and I was glad she got so much enjoyment out of it even though I didn't really want to part with it! Enfusia's Organic Fizz & Foam Bath Bombs come in 12 different scents and they make excellent gifts.

My kids also enjoyed getting to sample Cocoon Organic Baby Moisturizing Body Lotion and Cocoon Organic Baby Body & Hair Wash. I love that Cocoon products are not only organic but also paraben, phthalate and sulfate free. The gentle body and hair wash is enriched with organic oils and herbal extracts. Cocoon is glucose based and is formulated for eczema and dermatitis which is great for my son's sensitive skin. Cocoon's delicious scent - a combination of organic chamomile, lavender and lemongrass organic essential oils - was picked by kids and my kids really liked the smell of it too! I loved that the Cocoon moisturizer has organic unrefined shea butter butter and aloe. Cocoon's moisturizer not only aides the skin in moisture retention but helps protect it from the environmental elements. It is great for helping to prevent my son's mild eczema. I also really enjoyed the way it felt on my hands as well as the scent of the organic pure chamomile, lavender and lemongrass organic essential oils.

Enfusia didn't forget Men either! They have a complete organic men's bath and body care line too! Now is a great time to check out Enfusia because they have a special offer going on. Free Shipping on your order of $25 or more on now through December 17, 2010.

Holiday Sale! - Save 20% on everything! You can even save an additional 20% off already reduced sale and clearance items!! (Sale ends midnight 12/13/10 PST)

I love For Your Bug-A-Boo Organic Baby Products Shop because they only have healthy choices. It is easy to find just what you want and you don't have to spend time weeding out the undesirable because she does that for you and only offers great healthy choices. Of course, I am excited to let you know about For Your Bug-A-Boo's 20% off Holiday Sale but I also have some more exciting news.

For Your Bug-a-Boo now has a "wish list" feature! This is a great option to have just before the holidays and it will be great for baby showers and birthdays! I have a third baby on the way in May and though I have most things I need already, I will be happy to make use of the wish list feature for my remaining baby needs! I know that I will need some of their Imse Vimse Organic Cotton Nursing Pads,
Under the Nile Newborn Organic Cloth Diapers, and flushable diaper liners.

One last new feature I saw at For Your Bug-A-Boo is e-gift cards! Being able to buy (or receive) gift certificates is also wonderful! Head over to For Your Bug-A-Boo and check out their natural and organic selection of baby care products and adorable organic cotton layette and save 20% until 12/13!
