Reviews


The Pick and Mix Bath Taffy Bag is a great way to try out 6 different fragrances of these fun bath taffies. I mean, it doesn’t get much cuter than this! These little guys turn into a taffy/play dough like consistency that you can play with as you fill your bathtub with warm running water. It turns your bathwater into fun colors with light scents and low to medium bubbles. I noticed that small pieces of the bath taffy remained in the tub once I was finished and let the bath water drain, but nothing a quick rinse couldn’t handle.

The Kiss Me Now Bath Bomb is super cute with bright yellow, pink, and orange coloring. It even has heart sprinkles on top… The scent is a fun, fruity, and floral blend of raspberry, watermelon, cantaloupe, jasmine, violet, grapefruit, and kumquat (whew!). This bath bomb dances around the bathtub creating fizzy bubbles and leaving behind vibrantly colored bath water that is fantastically fragranced. This one is perfect for summer and is currently on sale!

The Birthday Cake Bath Bomb has a very sweet vanilla fragrance that lingers on your skin and in your bathroom long after your bath is over with! It creates fizz and bubbles as soon as you drop it in and creates a beautifully hued pink and vanilla candy scented bathing water.

The Bottom Line

The Bath Taffies are as cute as can be and smell absolutely delicious. The Pick and Mix Bag is the perfect way to try them out, and I would recommend them! The bath bombs are also of great quality and the scents are fantastic. With prices between $6.50 – $7.60, they make a delightful treat that will have you looking forward to bath time!

Review

The Illuminating Face Wash with Vitamin C ($42.00 USD) is a clear liquid cleanser that has a clean, fresh scent. It easily works into a nice light lather between your hands. One pump is enough to remove all of my make up. It leaves my skin feeling thoroughly clean and healthy, never tight or dried out. I actually look forward to washing my face wth this! I’ve never thought or made this statement before, so that’s saying something!

The Illuminating Face Serum has a fresh herbal scent and the consistency of a light oil. The top ingredients are Rosehip Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Sunflower Seed Oil. In the AM and PM, I use 1 pump for my entire face, or 2 pumps for my face, neck, and chest area.

This serum leaves the skin feeling dewy with a subtle glow, but is not heavy or greasy. It is so effective that I skipped my moisturizer all together. It absorbs completely in 5-10 minutes and made my foundation go on much easier. This serum sells for $89.00 USD and is definitely worth the price.

The sleek, sophisticated and absolutely beautiful packaging of these products is just another plus when it comes to this line of skin care. I usually try to put my products in a drawer to remain out of sight, but these products are so pretty, I just have to leave them out on my bathroom counter! I mean, look at them!

Bottom Line: These products have significantly benefited my skin. My face is noticeably moisturized, less red, and the texture is improving. I would absolutely recommend Orenda Skin Care to my friend and followers, and will purchase these items and more in the future!

Thank you, Orenda Skin Care, for providing these items for me to try and review!

Miz Magickal – Whipped Body Butter & Lip Balm Review

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to bring on the summer! This includes longer days, more time outside, and of course, summer scented body products!

It’s not enough that a product smells great. It also has to get the job done, which is why I’m so happy to have tried out some products from Miz Magickal! Lisa, the owner, was kind enough to send me her Whipped Body Butter and Lip Balm to review.

Miz Magickal is a new company based on positive energy, meditation, peace and serenity. All products are free of emulsifiers, parabens, and phthalates, and the lip balms are beeswax free! YESSS! Save the bees!


I chose the Whipped Body Butter in the Sweet Orange and Vanilla Scent (2 oz.). This product hits your nose with notes of sweet citrus and leaves behind the scent of vanilla and cocoa butter, along with a subtle sheen/glow on the skin. It is the consistency of a thick mousse and is easily worked into the skin!

So… this body butter passed the fragrance test, but did it actually work?? For the ultimate test, I used this on my legs right after shaving and on my always dry, and not so cute, footsies. I am happy to report that my legs are as soft and smooth as (body) buttah!! My feet look and feel wayyyyyy better after just a few uses!


The Orange Lip Balm (.15 oz.) comes in the CUTEST bright pink tube and I absolutely love it! It has a very similar scent to the Body Butter, with sweet notes of citrus, organic coconut oil, and cocoa butter. This balm glides on easily and leaves behind a subtle shine, perfect for when you don’t want to fuss or when when you want to pull a look together. It is not sticky or tacky in the slightest, so you don’t have to worry about your hair getting stuck in it on a windy day (Hooray!). I put this on before bedtime, and my lips were noticeably softer. It’s a winner in my book!

So, if you’re looking for vegan and cruelty-free products that are effective and made from good people, give Miz Magickal a try! Check out her newly launched website to see all of her available products, and follow her on Instagram @mizmagickal!

 

Simple and Delicious Tofu Scrambles

Just a little food porn for ya… 

Tofu scramble with sautéed spinach and onions, with garlic, salt, pepper, and turmeric! I love to eat this with Light Foods Fakin’ Bacon for delicious, healthy “Bacon and Eggs.” It’s absolutely delicious and no animals had to die! It’s also packed with protein!

Do you make tofu scrambles? What’s your favorite recipe?
