Summer Must Haves for the Family and Giveaways!

Sunforgettable Brush

sunforgettable-brushIf you’re going to spend the day at the beach or a whole day in the sun, it makes sense to lather up the family with sun screen.  If you’re just going for a walk or hitting the park for half an hour, it’s tempting to just skip the sunscreen and save the time and effort.  Especially if you use “natural” sunscreens that are greasy or are a pain to rub in.

That’s why we love the Sunforgettable Brush!  We keep it in our purse all summer for quick applications or when we forget to put on sunscreen before heading out. It’s a brush-on powder sunscreen made with minerals and free of dyes, chemicals, colorants, and perfumes.  This means it can be used on adults, kids, and even family members with rosacea or eczema

Father’s Day Product Review: EO Products for Men

I’m a sucker for beauty products, and I usually stick with ones with plant based ingredients. EO Products have all the things I’m looking for: sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate free, no parabens, and pure essential oils.  I thought I’d review a couple of EO Products For Men just in time for Father’s Day.  The soap is a shampoo/shower/shave combo and the lotion is for hands/face/body and both come in a large pump.  So not only are they organic, but multi-use too!

I had my husband try out the EO Everyone Soap For Men so I could include a man’s perspective.  He said the scent was light enough that he didn’t notice it, and it got him clean enough.  He said that he had to use a lot of it, four pumps for his chin-length hair and three pumps for his body.  It wasn’t a deal breaker, but he only has to use one pump of the conventional soap and shampoo he normally uses. I tried it myself to see if I agreed, and I did have to use quite a bit more than my regular soap and shampoo.
