NEW NAIL EXPERIENCE AT BEAUTY NEST 

Nail Tech: Tanaria 

This place is clean and cute. One of the unique things I saw was a cotton candy machine that staff was distributing to both children and adults. A heated neck pillow was placed on my neck during the manicure. My nails were in excellent condition when I left. A basic manicure was 26 not including gel.

How castile soap saved my face

My face has been a mess for the past two years. I have been trying several different face washes. They work the first two weeks and then I go back to having breakouts with scaring.

One Thanksgiving break I left my face wash home and used my aunt's eucalyptus soap. To my dismay my skin was clear all weekend, but really dry because I did not dilute the soap. I also started using the soap to clean my make- up brushes.

After a few months I started to explore other herbs ( colors, scents)  because the Eucalypts was too strong. My skin was dry and itchy. I tried citrus (yellow bottle) and it was too weak, the bumps were coming back. Then I tried tea tree (orange bottle) and it seemed to be a better fit. When I ran out of the tea tree castile , I decided to try the tea tree sugar soap and it was perfect! As I suspected it is made a differently than the castile soaps and the ingredients do not leave my skin dry. 

INGREDIENTS

Organic Sucrose*, Organic White Grape Juice, Organic Coconut Oil*, Organic Palm Kernel Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Tea Tree Oil, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol

I currently use the Tea Tree sugar soap for my face and body. Followed by Neutrogena Naturals brightening Moisturizer for my face. This moisturizer has lemon in it which works well with tea tree. Also leaves my face matter and ready for make up.  I use Nivea Essentially enriched lotion for my body. Best combination lotion for dry skin ever!

DEVA CUP, TAMPONS and Organic Sanitary Napkins 

As a teen used always pads and as an adult I opted to use o.b. ob tampons are small require no applicator and and absorb for long periods of time. It was not until 5 years ago that a friend mentioned something called a Deva Cup to me. I did not take the extra step of reading up about them like I intended back then.

Organic everything has swept the nation. After so many years of being uninformed I wanted to get informed and make a change. On my quest for organic cotton tap on and pads I spotted Deva Cup on the shelf! I was nervous and certainly had no plans to spend 30 dollars but I am interested in visiting the option in the near future.
