BugBand Review

BugBand is a maker of Made in the USA, Deet-Free natural bug repellents that are safe for the entire family. One of their products that I find especially convenient and useful is the BugBand Wristbands.

These Wristbands come in a 4 pack perfect the family, or in a single pack if you only need one. They come in a variety colors from black to pink so you can accessorize while you keep those pesky bugs far away. They even have a glow in the dark one that is great for overnight camping and could also double as a safety band when you are out for an evening stroll, like on Halloween! Made with plant based products that create an invisible shield keeping insects away, and they last for up to 120 hours! In fact it comes with a plastic pod to easily store away when not in use and preserve for a later time. BugBands can be worn loosely on your wrist on belt loops, fastened on backpacks or tents, attached to a baby stroller, and even on a pet collar to keep Fido pest free as well. Once these Wristbands are no loner active you can dispose of them safely in your plastic recycling bin. They sell for only $4.95 each and can be ordered online at

Bioderma Review

Bioderma cleansers and make-up removers from France, have been garnering attention  in the US. Models, make-up artists and celebrities swear by these products for  not only being effective, but also being safe for all skin types. Developed by skincare professionals, the ingredients are safe, natural, and are formulated without the use of parabens, alcohol or harsh chemicals. Instead these products were created to cleanse the skin, removing it of make-up, dirt and other impurities all while restoring the skins natural balance and pH level. 

I received three Bioderma products for review:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Bioderma Sebuim H2O, Bioderma Hydrabio H2O and Bioderma Sensibio H2O

All three products are cleansing and make-up removing waters, each designed to benefit a different skin type. Sebium is for combination, oily or blemished skin. It gently cleanses and removes make-up while regulating sebum quality. You simply soap a cotton pad with it and gently begin working it over your face, removing make-up and dirt from your face. It absorbs into your skin and dries quickly so there is no need to rinse off after. Your face is left feeling refreshed and bare. This product is great for someone like me that tends to have skin on the oilier side. It really removes all traces of makeup and your left with clean soft skin. I have also noticed that my skin is a lot less oily then usual since I started using this. This is a quality make-up remover that does what it says! Hydrabio is made for skin that is in need of some hydration.  This product can be used safely around your eyes to remove eye makeup as well. If you tend to have skin a little more on the dry side and need some added moisture then  I would suggest this product. I gifted a bottle to my mom and she loves it! Sensibio is made for those with sensitive skin that are prone to irritation. It removes make-up while soothing and clearing up sensitive skin. Fragrance free and hypoallergenic this stuff is safe for even the most sensitive skin. This one does not remove eye make-up as well as the other two, it does  however do a great job of removing other make-up. If you have sensitive skin that is easily irritated by other cleansers I would give this one a try. 

Aside from these cleanser/make-up removers Bioderma has other skincare products available. They are also now available for purchase in the states via

Junetics: Pure Energy Skincare Review

Junetics beauty and skincare company recently launched a new product line, the Junetics Pure Energy System. This skincare system is an array of products designed to work together to help you achieve more radiant, moisturized, firmer, more youthful looking skin. Created with a proprietary E24 Complex that you can read all about here .

Pure Energy Nourishing Cleanser is a lotion like cleanser that moisturizes as it cleans. It is ideal for all skin types but works especially well on dry skin. Right before I received this cleanser for review I was going through some major skin issues. I had recently washed my face with a bar soap I had never tried before and ended up having the worst allergic reaction to it. Something in the soap caused my face to puff up, turn red, itch like crazy, but even worse it actually dried my skin up so bad it started to flake off. It felt like sand paper! It looked like I had gone through some sort of chemical peel gone wrong. It was terrible! My skin had been dry and miserable for days, I was afraid to wash it with anything but water. When I received some Pure Energy products in the mail I was still fearful to try them. My skin was extra sensitive and I didn't want to further irritate it. Still I was in need of some major moisturizing and when I read that this Nourishing Cleanser was great for even the most sensitive skin and provided lots of moisture I decided to give it a shot. This cleanser is great! It immediately started healing my dry skin and felt softer and more nourished after just a couple of uses. 

Pure Energy Brightening Day Cream with SPF 50 is a day cream that not only offers moisture but it also protects your skin from the dangers of UV rays. I have been using this day cream on a daily basis underneath my makeup, especially around my eyes. I love that it is lightweight and non greasy and helps my makeup go on smoother. This cream can also be reapplied throughout the day if you are planning to be out in the sun and need extra protection. 

Pure Energy Night Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that works while you snooze. You apply it to your face and neck after cleansing and wake up with nourished skin. 

Their are several other products in the Junetics Pure Energy skin line to try. None of these products contain mineral oils, petroleum, pthalates, triclosan, nitrosamine and sulfates. They are not formulated with parabens or harmful ingredients and they are never tested on our furry friends. Purchase Junetics beauty and skincare products online

Green Goo Review

Green Goo is a family owned and operated company that provides all natural and environmentally friendly personal care products. They offer everything from first aid products, skin care products, sun protection products and even products for the fur babies in your home. All their products are made in the USA and made with 100% all natural herbs and oils. I was sent one of their Travel Packs for review, the Outdoor Travel Pack
The Outdoor Travel pack is the perfect size to throw in a backpack for your next hiking adventure or toss in your camping bag for your next wilderness sleepover. It includes two nourishing and soothing lip balms, Sweet Honey and Citrus Zest, one for yourself and one to share. I would recommend keeping the Sweet Honey for yourself, it was my favorite. It also contains two 1 oz. tins, First Aid and Pain Relief.  First Aid is perfect for dry and cracked hands and feet, insect bites, scrapes, cuts and even poison ivy. It is made with a variety of herbs and oils that create temporary relief from minor skin irritations. Pain Relief is a salve that contains Arnica to help relieve pain, inflammation and swelling. This is perfect to relieve muscles after a long day of trekking through the woods. Finally this travel pack contains a 1 oz. bottle of Bug Be Gone. This is my favorite product in this particular kit, because nobody wants to be bit by pesky little bugs and, because it absolutely works at keeping the pests away. Just spray it on and enjoy a  bug free day. It also smells really good unlike some bug sprays and it is totally safe for children and pets! I have been using this on my daughter anytime I know she will be out doors for a length of time. I am also planning to get this in the larger 4.5 oz. bottle for my husband who works in Alaska where mosquitoes are everywhere. This Outdoor Travel pack sells for $24.95. you can also find other travel packs online and check out some more of their products. Their Animal First Aid  is perfect for dry cracked doggy pads and calloused dog elbows.

Go Roll-On!

When I was a teenager living at home I used spray deodorant, mostly because it was what my mom bought, and all I knew. It wasn't until I moved away from home, when I was eighteen, that I purchased my first roll-on deodorant, and it's all I buy to this day.  My mom still uses the same spray deodorant and I know it sounds silly, but I cringe when I think about that cold, wet spray hitting my underarms and that overwhelming smell of baby powder, not to mention the white stains. Ugh, sorry mom. 

Ban-Roll-On Deodorant glides on smoothly, it is invisible so you don't have to worry about having white underarms or leaving white marks on your tops. It eliminates odor and wetness for up to 24 hours so you feel fresh and clean. Ban comes in several scents including:

-          Regular for a light and clean floral fragrance

-          Powder Fresh for a classic powder scent

-          Satin Breeze for a feminine touch with green and citrus notes

-          Fresh Cotton for a refreshing floral heart with a hint of fruit

-          Simply Clean for fresh and powdery amber notes with hint of peach nectar

-          Unscented for sensitive skin

My favorite of the bunch is Simply Clean. It is lightly floral with a hint of sweetness and not the least bit overwhelming. I am seriously thinking of purchasing several bottles for my mom in hopes that she puts down the spray can! You can purchase Ban Roll-On Deodorant at drug and mass retailers nationwide including CVS, Target and Safeway to name a few.
