Everyone’s Skin Deserves To Be Babied – Nourish Organics

Ok you all know I’m obsessed with bath & beauty products.


Recently I had the opportunity to try out Nourish Organics.



They are an organic skin care line that is run right from the heart of the south, Franklin, Tennessee. Their ingredient list is not long or confusing. What they put in their products is simple but effective. The entire line contains 99% or higher certified organic ingredients that are 100% natural.


Organic Lavender Wash

Cleanse, soothe and hydrate your baby’s delicate skin with this Organic Lavender Wash. Great to use right before bedtime to quiet and calm little minds. Use all over even as a shampoo.

Ingredients: saponified organic oils of coconut, olive & jojoba, organic glycerin/vegetable gum extract, organic aloe vera, lavender essential oils, rosemary extract


I completely loved this body wash. I personally love lavender. Especially right before I go to bed. This body wash lathers great and it’s minus any harsh ingredients. Bonus! The scent is truly amazing and perfect to help you wind down after a long day.


Organic Sweet Orange Lip Balm

Nourish your lips with the crisp taste, smell and feel of sweet orange! Nourish Organics lip balm is made with pure, organic shea butter and organic beeswax and is formulated to leave your lips feeling glad and moist, without that dreaded needy feeling thirty minutes later. The moisture is real and the flavor is fantastic!


Can you say creamsicle? This seriously smells and tastes like a creamsicle. If the lip balm is this amazing I’m going to have to order the Sweet Orange skin care ASAP.

How I Love Clean & Clear Products!


I’ve been using the Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub for years.


But recently I had the opportunity to try their body wash BOOST w/ Mango & Papaya. Clean & Clear never ceases to amaze me. Every product I try is simply better than the next. This body wash was super moisturizing and is the perfect scent for summer. I always go to mango or orange in the summer. Plus it’s always nice and invigorating for a morning shower. Gets your senses going and wakes you up. I only had to use a drop of the body wash on my loofah to get the most amazing lather ever. Seriously… best lather EVER! I don’t know why I’m surprised; I’ve been using the face scrub since forever and love it.



If you haven’t tried Clean & Clear…. You are seriously missing out. They truly have the best products. I’ve been using them since I was in high school and am cough cough in my 30s now and still use them. I think they need a new older face for Clean & Clear don’t you? Hint hint.



See fewer blackheads in just two days! CLEAN & CLEAR® BLACKHEAD ERASER™Scrub has unique exfoliating multi-action beads that work to gently remove the trapped dirt, oil, and dead skin that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Three sizes of multi-action beads allow surface exfoliation and a deep down clean. Salicylic Acid, an acne fighting medicine, clears blackheads and helps prevent new ones from forming.


The scoop on CLEAN & CLEAR® BOOST w/ Mango & Papaya

Get Clean! Get energized! Get Going! New CLEAN & CLEAR® MORNING BURST®body wash is designed to help stimulate your senses and energize you all over. MORNING BURST® is the only body wash infused with BURSTING BEADS® that are suspended with exotic fruit extracts.

Take 2 – QVC’s Testube Beauty – Product Review

As you know from my previous post about  QVC‘s  and their New Beauty Testube as posted HERE, I love my quarterly testubes.


This time my New Beauty Testube consisted of Supersmile professional whitening toothpaste, Algenist anti-aging moisturizer, Perricone firming neck cream, Philosophy’s snow angel 3-in1 shower gel, Mally’s evercolor starlight eyeliner in black, Laura Geller’s baked eyeshadow in Sugar Sky/Blueberry, Josie Maran’s 100% pure argan oil, and WEN’s winter vanilla mint.


I was not a huge fan of the Supersmile toothpaste. I didn’t really like the flavor or feel like my teeth were getting cleaned. I also have very sensitive teeth and gums so that could be my problem. The Algenist, Perricone and Josie Maran products were all nice and went on well. But my faves and standouts are the following.

I loved the Philosophy snow angel body wash, but I’ve been a huge Philosophy fan for years so maybe I’m just biased. Who knows? Their 3-in-1’s always lather so well and rinse well too. Plus they all smell divine. I especially love their Strawberry Milkshake.

This was my first opportunity to try a Mally product and I was pleasantly surprised. Her eyeliner went on super smooth and easy. Sometimes with an eyeliner pencil I find them stiff and hard to work with. Her pencil was very easy to use and pliable. Love it!


I also really liked the Laura Geller eyeshadow. The colors look great seperate but I prefer to use the lighter blue as a base and highlighter and the darker blue on my lids to give more of a smokey eye look. The shadow stays on very well but I love the color options it comes in the most.

Ok so my fave fave fave product from this whole testube has to be hands down the WEN winter vanilla mint conditioner. First of all it smells like what I think heaven smells like. A little goes a long way and rinses out very nicely and doesn’t make you feel sticky or weighed down. It’s very light. But the smell is what gets me. I want to eat it! I was surprised but happy to find out that WEN is owned by Chaz Dean the fab hair stylist. Some of you may recall the name as he is a regular on “Flipping Out” on Bravo. I’m a fan of the show so when I saw this I was even more excited.


Stay tuned for my next edition. As soon as I receive my next testube I will let you know. In the meantime should you purchase any of these products let me know what you think.


While looking at the QVC site to get these links I noticed many of the products I mentioned are either having a great sale or are giving away a bonus with each purchase. So make sure to check out these great products on the QVC site for more deets.

Celebrate Cyber Monday with DermaLastyl

It’s Cyber Monday and I wanted to tell you about one of my absolute favorite new brands… DermaLastylâ„¢. I’ve been using their line for over a month now and love the results. My personal faves are the face scrub and the moisturizer. It’s a great alternative to Botox as it contains Elastatropin®. DermaLastylâ„¢ is the only skin care product that contains Elastatropin®, real human elastin synthesized in a Biotechnology laboratory. Elastin is a vital part of the skin and provides its smooth, youthful appearance, however elastin is lost as we age and wrinkles and loose skin appear as a result. DermaLastyl supplements elastin in the skin’s surface, reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and helps the onset of new wrinkles.


“Like” DermaLastylâ„¢ on Facebook HERE to get the deets on their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. Rumor is the sale will be extended til December 15th, but you have to “Like” them for the details. Also, the first 100 fans will be entered to win a full size product of their choice. Trust me this is a deal you don’t want to miss this season.


More about DermaLastyl:

DermaLastyl with Elastatropin has been Clinically Proven by noted anti-aging physician Dr. Steven Lamm in large scale Cinical Trials in New York City. More than 80% of the volunteers in this study experienced a significant reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles over a 12 week period. Dr. Lamm recommends DermaLastyl to all of his patients, both men and women.


More about Elastatropin®

Using a complex chain of 600 amino acids in a patented molecular delivery system, our synthesized form of elastin, Elastatropin®
restores elastic properties to the skin. Amino acids enable Elastatropinâ„¢, to penetrate the deepest parts of the epidermis where it converts into elastin and integrates itself with existing elastin and other proteins. This process expands the flexible backbone of the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of existing lines while preventing the onset of new wrinkles and diminishing the signs of aging.


The discovery of Elastatropinâ„¢ and its effectiveness in fighting wrinkles introduces a comfortable, casual alternative to traditional
age-defying procedures and ineffective creams and skincare products.


Additional Ingredients


Matrixyl – 3000® is a combination of matrikines including Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – 7, Matrixyl 3000® promotes collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Although fibroblasts never completely lose their ability to create more collagen, the levels dwindle with age and the skin dries
out and wrinkles.


In clinical trials, Matrixyl® 3000, a key ingredient in DermaLastyl®, achieved:


33% decrease in wrinkle density

23% decrease in the volume of wrinkles

20% decrease in the depth of wrinkles


Argireline® is a unique new peptide, called Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, that both reduces existing facial wrinkles and is effective against the development of new wrinkles. Studies with human volunteers show that argireline delivers superior anti-wrinkle results, with the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 17% after 15 days of treatment and up to 27% after 30 days of treatment. This represents a breakthrough in cosmetic science because of its remarkable speed in anti-wrinkle activity.


Argireline® also decreases the depth of facial wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles from facial expressions, especially near
the eyes and on the forehead. Botox® targets the same wrinkles, but Argireline® is safer and less expensive.


Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a complex carbohydrate that is distributed widely throughout the body in connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. One of the chief components of the Extracellular Matrix, HA contributes significantly to cell proliferation and migration, and is a unique moisturizing agent because of its ability to retain water more effectively than any other natural substance. By using one of the
highest concentration of HA of any skin care product on the market, Dermalastyl provides enhanced moisturizing effects and increases smoothness, softening and elasticity while decreasing facial wrinkles.


ProliSelâ„¢ Only Dermalastyl branded products contain ProliSelâ„¢, a formulation that acts as both an antioxidant and anti-carcinogen.


ProliSelâ„¢ contains a biologically active form of selenium that is extremely effective in preventing oxidation of the skin. Additionally,
ProliSelâ„¢ contains other skincare ingredients to slow down the process of aging by protecting against the effects of photooxidation and photodamage. Only DermaLastyl contains the unique combination of Oxidation Protective compounds found in ProliSelâ„¢.
