ZSKIN COSMETICS | COFFEE FACE SCRUB ($37)
Rise and shine! Awaken your senses and treat dry, winter-ridden skin with this rejuvenating Coffee Face Scrub from ZSkin Cosmetics. Made with 100% organic ingredients, this Coffee Face Scrub combines real coffee grounds to reveal your vibrant skin + coconut oil, avocado oil and grapeseed oil to help clear out dirt while retaining moisture. Infused with eucalyptus and citrus oils, this coffee scrub sloughs off dry, dead skin cells during the exfoliating process, helps increase circulation while reducing the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles + it keeps the skin looking awake and refreshed all day long! Invigorate your senses and indulge your skin. Wash away yesterday’s worries while you rise up to a new day’s challenge!
I like to use a face scrub once a week (sometimes twice) so this will definitely come in handy. I love that it is made with coffee. It will be the perfect little wake-me-up in the morning. I love the smell of coffee so not only will it leave my skin feeling refreshed but I will get to enjoy the amazing scent while I use it.
SUGARBEARHAIR | WOMEN’S MULTI- VITAMIN GUMMIES ($29.99)
Elevate your beauty regime from the inside out! Beauty isn’t simply skin deep – the body is a vessel for the nutrients our skin receives and ensuring that it functions optimally is one of the best ways to foster a healthier lifestyle this new decade. SugarBearHair’s Women’s Multi-Vitamin gummies are an easy-to-use, scientifically formulated, vegan vitamin complex designed for women! Featuring a highly concentrated mix of Vitamins B-12, C, D-2, E and more, these tasty beauty bears also contain vegan sourced amino acids which can help in collagen production. These gummies also contain Omega 3 — the total unsung hero in skincare which also does wonders for both your brain and heart! Fuel your mornings with this ultimate one stop shop Multi- vitamin for a healthier skin, hair, nails and body!
Since becoming pregnant, vitamins have been an important part of my life. I take quite a few each day and will continue to do some after baby arrives. But…..with that being said, I also want to point out that I really don’t like the idea of pills. I’ve had issues in the past with vitamins making me feel sick and that sometimes make them difficult to swallow. Gummy vitamins are way easier to tolerate, and the fact that this one is vegan and has a highly concentrated mix of Vitamins B-12 makes me very happy.
MANNA KADAR BEAUTY | CHAMPAGNE CHARCOAL BODY SCRUB ($18.00)
The largest part of our skin is found on our bodies and if your current routine stops at body wash and lotion – we’ll make your morning showers a whole lot better! Manna Kadar’s Champagne Charcoal Body Scrub is a luxe champagne scented body scrub that contains charcoal to remove dirt and build up, leaving the skin polished, hydrated, and refreshed. Not only does it exfoliate the skin to reveal that smoother look and feel, this scrub definitely adds an extra layering of pampering so you can begin your day with a relaxed and worry-free aura!
I just received the most beautiful jar of Manna Kadar body butter and this champagne charcoal body scrub is going to complement it perfectly. I’m actually quite excited about it. I love to use products from the same brand back to back. I can use this scrub in the shower and the body butter afterwards.
AFTERSPA | DETOX BRUSH WITH MASSAGE NODULES ($16)
Ever heard of dry brushing? Dry brushing has traveled across time- from an ancient pre-bath ritual to a modern pre-bath trend for celebrities & beauty junkies globally. Its devotees swear by its ability to exfoliate, reduce the appearance of cellulite & aid lymphatic drainage for more swift removal of toxins. Dry brushing is a combination of exfoliation + massage that involves taking a dry brush and moving it over your pre-shower body in slow, circular motions and the Afterspa Detox Brush with Massage Nodules is here to help you maximize the benefits of dry brushing! The natural bristle brush and plastic nodules has been clinically tested and helps stimulates blood circulation accompanied by a good massage. Use this to awaken the senses in the morning or to melt the dirt and stresses on your body after a long day.
TO USE: Gently but firmly brush your dry skin in long strokes toward your heart, going over each area 2-3 times. At your belly, brush in a clockwise motion. Be sure to follow up with a vitamin-rich moisturizer. Use 2x a week as a dry brush pre-shower. For sensitive skins, moisten the brush & add shower gel for a more gentle daily exfoliation instead of dry-brushing. Replace the unit every 60 days.
I’m not sure how I feel about dry brushing so I am going to use this as more of a shower exfoliator. I will apply my favorite body wash and get my scrub on.
THE HAPPY SHOPPE | SELF-CARE TO DO STICKY NOTES ($7.99)
In the hustle and bustle of daily life, its all-too-easy to forget to take a little bit of time to look after yourself. Self-care are like little love notes for the body and this Therabox exclusive, the Self-Care Sticky-Notes, is the perfect little reminder that you always need to carve out some time to be kind to yourself. Use it as a token to help keep you on track for self-care this year– simply write yourself a loving, caring message or an affirmation and stick it in a visible spot to remind you to take some time out for yourself. It’s the perfect desk-buddy. Breathe, pause, and allow yourself to rise up — come back to your body feeling refreshed and relaxed, whenever you need that little self-care push!
How adorable are these little sticky notes?! I especially like the ones that say “Things I’m Loving”. I can see myself using that one often. I also like the ones that say “Next Week’s Self-Care Is”. This will make for a nice little reminder to do something for yourself each week.
FOX CORPORATION | I’M IN LOVE ROSE-HEART DEEP MOISTURIZING PINK MASK ($4.99)
Say hello to fresh winter mornings with illuminated complexion and glowing skin! The I’m In Love Rose-Heart Deep Moisturizing Pink Mask is a 2-step premium skincare face mask and serum that harnesses natural ingredients, botanicals and vitamins to help hydrate and care for the skin — leaving it looking bright and beautifully youthful. Ingredients include revitalizing Ginseng, Hawthorn and Allantoin + enriching vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, C & E that aim to moisturize, maintain and protect the skin. This Brightening Pink Mask also features single-use cotton microfiber slips plus a deep caring serum that is enough for 5 uses! Delicate and gentle on the skin with its smooth texture and light rose scent so you can sit back and relax after a long tiring day! TIP: Use it before sleeping or after a warm shower to reveal fresh-looking skin!
This fun little mask is a 2-step process and will be the perfect ending to a long day. I like to use face masks before bed so that’s what I will do with this one. First you apply the pink sheet mask, leave on for 10-20 minutes, then you apply step 2 cream and massage in to skin. It sounds heavenly.
AMINNAH SKINCARE | UNICORN LIP PLUMPING MASK ($14.99)
Pucker up! This Unicorn Lip Plumping Mask from Aminnah Skin-care is the the ultimate hydrating, lip plumping mask that goes on like silk and gives your lips that extra oomph! It is infused with natural ingredients to rejuvenate the lip skin surface and penetrate deep below to lock-in the good stuff to prevent dryness. This unicorn colored, magical lip plumping mask delivers that much needed healthy drink of ultra-hydrating ingredients for dewy, plump and glowing lips. Plus, it smells so good that you might almost want to eat it (but don’t, please). This rainbow colored lip mask is here to deliver you luscious, moisturized lips throughout this new decade!
The lip mask is so darn cute and it smells amazing! I love the whipped texture and the pastel colors. The scent is a mixture of pink sugar, raspberry, blackberry, bubblegum, cotton candy and vanilla. I want a body lotion and body scrub made with the same scent!
SUGARBEARHAIR | EXCLUSIVE LUXURY SHOWER CAP ($15)
I enjoy washing & drying my hair daily- said no one ever. Made with a high-quality waterproof exterior & plush lining on the inside, this exclusive luxury shower cap from SugarBearHair features a terry lining that absorbs any damaging humidity or steam so your hair stays tangle-free & moisturized for those days where your hair needs a breather from the washing + drying. Made with a comfortable elastic band that actually stays in place, you can use it to protect your precious locks while you shower or even while you sleep to wake up tangle free. Or, use this versatile cap as a deep conditioning treatment tool whenever you’re needing a little hair TLC during this brittle hair season! Simply flip the cap inside out, put on your favorite leave-in hair mask/conditioner and place the glossy side of the cap on your head, exposing the terry lining and drift off to bed! Wake up the next morning and rinse off the leave-in conditioner for amazing silky-smooth hair.
BASECAMP CARD CO. | BASECAMP CARDS: SECOND EDITION ($10.60)
Every day, we’re spending more and more of our lives glued to screens while the real world passes us by. Social media has practically taken over everything – it has become one of the most efficient ways of communicating with each other but also became the most addicting platform in the world. The “attention economy,” is a dangerously addictive digital stimuli that always seeks for limited attention and it often leaves us frazzled, burned-out and less creative than ever.
Taking a step back from technology might seem a little counterintuitive for some of us– our businesses relies on it, there are important messages that cannot be missed, we develop the fear of missing out and so on. Because we’re always behind our screens, we start to lose the magic of meaningful connections. We compare ourselves with others and forget what we have to offer. We lose ourselves online and lessen our real life personal connections.
This month’s happiness boosting activity comes in the form of a deck of cards. It’s such a fun idea. Use as a regular deck of cards, or make note of the thought-provoking, conversation-starting questions on each card and use them as a way to make lasting connections with family and friends.
TheraBox Review January 2020 – Final Thoughts
The January TheraBox was a pleasure to unbox….as was the December box. It is packed full of useful products and it has a total retail value of $150+. It feels a little skincare heavy this month, but I totally don’t mind because I will get use out of everything. The theme this month is Rise & Shine so the skincare focused products make sense. I have everything I need to start my day off right – I will apply the mask before bed, make up in the morning and use the face scrub, body scrub and detox brush in the shower. I will take a multivitamin with my morning glass of water, pick a card from my Basecamp deck and use it as a way to get to know myself a little bit better each day. I see a new morning routine in my future……
