Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review

Is your skin really getting the hydration it needs?

On a daily basis the outer layer of our skin; which protects us from absorbing pathogens and toxins in the environment, is compromised. This has a negative effect on the skin by stripping it of well needed moisture. conventional moisturizers only temporally moisturize the top layer of your skin; temporally masking dryness.
To the rescue!  Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion bonds with your skin and locks in moisture penetrating the deeper layers of your skin. The results are long term hydrated skin.

The folks behind Skin MD really did their research in producing a product that  restores skin's natural ability to heal and protect itself from hash environmental elements.

I am very picky with what I put on my skin.  Skin MD Natural  is 93% natural, the other ingredients are of food-grade quality and on the FDA's most safe list. You will not find any colorants, parabens, fragrances, etc. Skin MD is Vegan and cruelty free. This is very important to me!

I use the shielding lotion at night as well as during the day. I apply it on damp skin; face and body, and I find that I need very little of the product. It's very lightweight and absorbs quickly into your skin and will not clog your pores.    Skin MD Natural is ideal for ALL skin types.

I love the radiant effect it gives my skin. This is a result of having truly hydrated skin.

You can purchase Skin MD products on their website. For the duration of this contest you can receive a discount if you use the code MMO; case sensitive, at checkout.  You may also be able to purchase these products locally. Check out Skin MD Naturals Store Locator.

ResVitale's Beauty Sleep Review

A good nights sleep is so essential for our body's to function properly, yet due to stress, environment, etc. many of us don't get the needed rest that our body's crave.

I am definitely one of those people that suffers with insomnia. On those nights when I do get the recommended eight hours of sleep I don't always feel that my sleep was restful. I have come to appreciate the importance of quality sleep.

I recently discovered a company called ResVitale that makes quality organic supplements containing Resvertrol. Resvertrol is a component in red wine that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and other anti-aging properties. ResVitale uses the strictest growing and farming techniques so that their products are high-quality and effective.

One of their products that I have benefited from is their Beauty Sleep. Two capsules of Beauty sleep contains 3 mg of Melatonin; this is the recommended dose, as well as L-Theanine or Suntheanine and Passion Flower. All of which contribute to a peaceful restful sleep.

 I also like that Beauty Sleep contains a liver tonic consisting of Milk Thistle, Turmeric extract and Artichoke extract. So while you sleep your liver is being cleansed of nasty toxins.

 Beauty Sleep is 100% Vegetarian.

 You can purchase ResVitale's products online and if you live in the states you can find them at your local GNC.

Stride Everyday Review

Close to 50% of women will suffer from urinary incontinence; UI, at some point in their lives. The fallacy is that this only plagues older woman. Due to various reasons woman in their 20s also suffer with this condition.

Wendy Spencer is the founder of Berkshire Axis Innovations and the innovator behind Stride Everyday panty. Wendy developed UI after giving birth and wanted a better solution to dealing with UI other than Panty liners. Wendy also desired something more environmentally friendly.

Stride Everyday is the perfect solution to a rather embarrassing problem.

Featured in Shape's Magazine editor's top pick, Stride Everyday contains patented fabric technology which is permanently and very discretely built into the panties gusset. This technology not only absorbs up to 1 oz of liquid, it naturally deodorizes. Another noteworthy feature of this technology is that it removes moisture from the top layer. Pantyliners do not remove moisture and this can cause problems such as yeast infections.

Stride Everyday comes in five different styles. I chose the Sport Bikini in black print. This may be the nicest undergarment I've ever owned. The top of the liner is made of cotton and is very comfortable as well as breathable. These are ideal for working out and they are very adorable.

Stride Everyday are reasonably priced,  and will save you an estimated $125 plus a year on liners and pads.

You can purchase Stride Everyday on the website . Free shipping for orders over $30.

Wen Hair Care Review

I can't remember the exact day or hour that I decided to live more frugally by cutting back on what I considered luxury items.  Among the things I would be eliminating was my cherished Wen Cleansing Conditioner. 

I couldn't fathom spending more than a dime on my unworthy hair.  So my hair would have to suffer for my new ascetic lifestyle.

During this time I searched and experimented with every sulfate and surfactant free alternatives available on the market.  It was indeed a grim time for my hair.

Eventually I came to my senses and vowed that even if I was completely destitute I will never again do without Wen. And now my hair is back to looking fantastic. During that time  I  also came to appreciate that Wen is actually an incredible value.

If your not familiar with Wen let me take a moment to fill you in on why it saved not just my hair but millions of other tresses.

Shampoo is actually very damaging to the hair.  Chaz Dean; the brilliant mind behind Wen, recognized this fact, thus he worked hard to create a product that was all natural and free of harsh ingredients.  The finished product would not only cleanse hair, but, leave it completely conditioned and healthy.

Here are some of the benefits of Wen:

·    Adds moisture, body, and shine.
·    Works great on straight, wavy, curly and ethnic hair.
·    Leaves hair soft, manageable and touchable.
·    Can be used before and after any chemical treatment or when hair has been stressed.
·    Strengthening action that repairs damage, renews elasticity, and reduces chemical stress of dry, extremely damaged hair.

It may take a while to get use to Wen because it is so different from your average shampoo.  But stick with it and you'll be glad you did.  Prior to Wen my hair was a fine and frizzy.  I use to pin it up and throw on hair pieces.  I stuck with Wen and a few months later my hair was transformed.  I now actually have really good hair and I no longer need or wear hair pieces .  However, when I stopped using Wen my hair suffered.

There is nothing comparable to Wen on the market!  This is one of my favorite products that I learned I can not live without. Wen not only eliminates the need for conditioner but it does away with the need to wash your hair as frequently.  So in the end this is really a good value.
