Devera Naturals Review

About Devera Naturals 
Devera Naturals is a woman-owned business created in 2008 by Linda Joffe as a result of a serious bout with breast cancer.  Linda is passionate about enhancing the beauty of every woman…naturally. Devera Naturals offers only those products that will benefit consumers according to the company’s uncompromisingly high standards, containing only natural and organic ingredients.

A portion of the proceeds is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation which helps provide mammograms and follow up care for disadvantaged women throughout the U.S.

I was sent two products from the Devera Naturals beauty skincare line, Snow Flower Creme and Miracle Eyes. The key ingredient in these and other Devera Natural products is a super flower called Edelweiss or known also as Snow Flower. 

This flower is said to contain powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and science has found a way to use Edelweiss plant stem cells in skin care to help prevent collagen loss, firm skin, prevent sun damage and even minimize wrinkles. You can read more about the benefits of the Snow Flower and Devera Naturals on their blog post.  

Now for my opinion...

Snow Flower Creme is an anti-aging cream that is meant to be used morning and night after cleansing your face. It contains the Edelweiss plant cells to help fight wrinkles as well as Goji Berry extract for soothing, lifting and firming. I have been using this product religiously for the last couple of months. I waited to write my review because one of the claims that is made about this product is that it can decrease wrinkles by up to 15% in 22 days. So I wanted to give it a fair try. I am soon to be out of my 30's and I have noticed that my skin is not as youthful as it once was. While I do not have noticeable wrinkles I have noticed that when I look very closely at my skin, it isn't as smooth as it used to be. Since using this cream I have noticed that my skin is softer and smoother. I love that it absorbs quickly and does not leave my face feeling greasy. You are told to use sparingly because it is a very rich cream, I found that 2 pumps is all I need to moisturize my skin. But seriously, my skin really does look better then it did prior to using Devera Naturals and I am not just saying this because I received a sample for review. In fact Girly Girl does sometimes receive products for review, that do not live up to their claims. Most of the time you won't hear about these as I try to only post about products I like. This cream is one of them! 

Miracle Eyes is an eye cream that contains Edelweiss plant cells, Goji Berry extract, hyaluronic acid and marine extracts to smooth and firm around your eyes. It also contains green tea and cucumber to reduce puffiness and dark circles. Prior to starting this eye cream I noticed that the area under my eyes was becoming really dry. This eye cream does a great job of moisturizing the delicate area around your eyes and smoothing out creases. I found that I need to use a teeny amount of this stuff, when I use more I notice the area under my eyes starts to tingle a bit. However I was assured that this was normal, and when I only use a small dab as suggested, I do not have the same sensation. This little jar goes a long way! I really have noticed positive results from this eye cream, the dryness under my eyes has gone, the creases are less noticeable and the dark circles are getting lighter!

Devera Naturals are now available on Amazon as well as their website. Be sure to like them on Facebook as well.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Products Review

I love the John Frieda Frizz Ease line of products. My hair tends to get frizzy when the weather is humid and I also suffer from major flyaways. However I have found that when I use certain Frizz Ease products prior to blow drying my hair, my hair is left smooth, straight and bouncy. Recently I was sent a couple of Frizz Ease products for review. 

The New Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner which I loved, leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable. I love how light weight it is since I have a problem with products weighing down my really fine hair. This is a great everyday shampoo and conditioner for fine hair as it tames the flyaways while leaving your hair with some body. 

The other product I received was Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air Dry Waves Styling Foam. Unfortunately my hair hates me, and as much as I would love for my hair to to look beach tousled with soft bouncy waves, these type of products never work for me. However my mom loves this stuff. She uses this foam on days when she hasn't the time or doesn't feel like blow drying her hair to create natural looking waves in her hair. It's funny because my mom also has fine hair but this stuff works great for her. Her hair has natural wave to it while mine is more on the straight side and I think this has a lot to do with why it doesn't work for me. Like I said, my hair hates me... According to my mom you simply put the foam in your hair while it's still wet. Scrunch your hair up a bit and let it air dry. What you are left with after it dries is natural wavy hair without the frizz. I did a bit of research on this product because it was driving me nuts that it didn't work for me. Apparently it works great for people that have all ready natural curls or wave in their hair. Leaving it bouncy and their curls free of the frizzies. 

These products can be purchased at food, drug and mass retailers nationwide.

*Stocking Stuffer Idea* Ice Chips Review

Not to long ago I received a package of Ice Chips for review. Initially upon seeing them, although intrigued with some of the flavors, I didn't think much of them. I assumed these were just your usual mints in a tin. However when I finally decided to open them up and try them I was pleasantly surprised. My first though "Ice Chips, Now I get it!" 

 Ice Chips are the "good for your" sugar free candy that actually looks like pieces of broken ice, but even more interesting, they are cool like ice. I don't know how they do it, but Ice Chips feel cold in your mouth when you bite into them. So refreshing! They come in a variety of flavors and most importantly are sugar free! Made with Birchwood Xylitol a natural sweetener that is recommended by dentists and good for your teeth. 

I received a 6 pack tin  for review which included 3 flavors included in their Holiday pack and 3 of their other flavors including: Cranberry, Egg Nog, Pumpkin Spice, Lemon, Juicy Berry Mix and Peppermint. My favorites are the Peppermint, Lemon and Egg Nog, which taste a little more buttercotch-y to me but that's okay, they are good either way.  A couple of the other flavors I am interesting in trying are Ginger and Licorice! 

These would make great stocking stuffers and they currently have some seasonal specials available. 

Check out these Moana Pineapple Coconut Ice Chips, adorable and delicious! You can purchase Ice Chips online and while you are there be sure to read the story behind Ice Chips. *Spoiler alert* It involves a garage, two grandmas, and the show Shark Tank!

SnapLaces Review

Do your shoe laces have a tendency of coming untied? Are your laces too long and cumbersome? Do they not allow for comfortable movement? Then I have the perfect solution for you, SnapLaces

SnapLaces are performance no-tie laces that provide the right tension on your feet with no effort lacing. You simply lace the stretchable laces into your shoes to your desired tension, snap together and start moving. 

My husband recently purchased a new pair of running shoes and we thought these would make the perfect trial run for SnapLaces. 

They were a breeze to get on and he was impressed at how comfortable they were. These are great for  athletes and people on the move. In addition because of the easy one handed lacing system these offer, they are gaining popularity with children and adults with Autism. Check it out here! How cool is that?!

SnapLaces come in a 4 pack which includes everything you need to lace up your favorite shoe. They come in 12 colors so you can find the perfect match, or be like my husband who likes to show off his laces. The one suggestion I would like to make to SnapLaces is to possibly make a smaller lace for little ones. My 8 year old daughter was in love with the idea of these laces but they were a little too large for her small feet. Of course these can be adjusted and cut to fit, but it just makes more sense to me to create to sizes for adults and children. Especially since these are great for kids whose laces have the tendency of coming undone often. 

You can purchase your set of SnapLaces online and also be sure to like them on Facebook for all the latest news.
