5 Stars: Whozzu Full Face Swimming Set

Image
I have always used the cheap dollar store goggles and replaced them every year. I've started swimming as a workout and needed some good quality swim goggles. These goggles by Whozzu come with a hard case, cleaning towel, nose plugs and 2 types of ear plugs. It's basically the swimming starter kit. 

Inside the case, there are felt stickers covering any metal pieces from the zipper that could possible scratch the lens. 


The goggles themselves have a mirror finish on the outside, so they are like wearing sunglasses when you have them on. 


They have a really cool closure in the back that makes it easy to pull them on and off and I don't have to worry about the rubber straps pulling my hair when it's wet. 


The lens provide a great seal around the eyes - in fact, they kind of form a vacuum around your eyes. I now see why a good pair of goggles are important.

5 Stars: Calily Life Organic Coconut Milk Scrub with Dead Sea Minerals, 24 Oz.

Image
I own several Calily products and they have never let me down. I love their organic, all natural ingredients and I have yet to be disappointed with any of their products.  Right now, this scrub is $14.95 on Amazon
This scrub contains 5 different types of oils and dead sea salt. 

This scrubs needs to be stirred before using it as some of the oil starts to separate and "float" on the top. 


This scrub smells like Hawaiian Tropics sunscreen or as I call it - summer.. After I used this scrub, my skin was shiny and smooth. I like to use it before I shave my legs so I get a closer shave and the oils left on my skin mean I don't need to use shave gel. The only downside is that this will leave the bathtub or shower floor oily. A quick rinsing with hot water helped clear this up, so it wasn't a difficult issue to deal with. I use this about once a week and a jar this size lasts me several months.

5 Stars: Calily Life Organic Anti Fungal Tea Tree Body and Foot Scrub with Dead Sea Minerals, 24 Oz. – Exfoliating, Powerful Cleansing and Moisturizing

Image
I am a huge fan of Calily products. I love their organic, all natural ingredients and I have yet to be disappointed with any of their products. 
This scrub contains 3 different types of oils, dead sea salt and tea tree oil. Tea Tree oil is noted for it's anti-microbial and healing properties. 

This scrubs needs to be stirred before using it as some of the oil starts to separate and "float" on the top. 

This scrub has a piney, floral smell but isn't too overwhelming. After I used this scrub, my skin was shiny and smooth.

5 Stars: Calily Life Organic Tea Tree Oil Foot Soak with Natural Dead Sea Minerals , 17.5 Oz. - Foot Bath Eliminates Odors, Fights Fungus, Softens and Refreshes Feet

Image
I love this foot soak from Calily.  These bath salts are infused with tea tree oil which makes them smell floral and piney.  Tea Tree oil is noted for it's anti-microbial and decongestant properties.  Using this foot soak can help treat or prevent common foot issues like athlete's foot.  It is also great for encouraging healing of the skin, so if you have blisters or abrasions on your feet, this will help those things heal.  The dead sea salt helps pull toxins from the body.  
The ingredients list is short - dead sea salt, tea tree oil and fragrance.  I am allergic to many man-made chemicals that go into beauty products, so I love the purity of Calily's stuff.  The salts are very easy to use - just put 3 tablespoons into a hot foot bath and soak your feet in it for about 20 minutes.  

Afterwards, my feet were really soft and many of my calluses were starting to slough off.  I used some of the soak as a scrub to get the rest of the calluses off.  The bottle is just shy of 16 …

5 Stars: Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Salt with Eucalyptus, 32 Oz. – Luxurious and Therapeutic Bath Salt Soak – Rejuvenates, Relaxes and Soothes Mind and Body

Image
I love these bath salts from Calily.  Normally, I use Epsom salts once a week in my baths.  I have found a great replacement!  
These bath salts are infused with eucalyptus oil which makes them smell kind of citrusy.  Eucalyptus is noted for it's anti-inflammatory, stimulating and decongestant properties.  If you are starting to feel sick, this feels great in a hot bath and can help flush toxins out of your body.  The ingredients list is short - dead sea salt, eucalyptus oil and fragrance.  I am allergic to many man-made chemicals that go into beauty products, so I love the purity of Calily's stuff.  

The salts are very easy to use - just dump some in your bath while the water is running so that the salt can dissolve; step into the bath and relax.  Afterwards, my skin was really soft and I smelled amazing (according to my husband).  The bottle is just shy of 32 ounces (about the size of a yeti-style cup or a large soft drink cup) so it's a bargain at $14.95 on Amazon.

5 Stars: Mr. Pen- Assorted Binder Clips, Paper Clips and Rubber Bands, Binder Clips (5 Large, 10 Medium, 10 Small), Paper Clips (100 Jumbo, 100 Regular), Rubber Bands (+100 Size #18, +50 Size #33)

Image
I am a sucker for office supplies. I can't explain it, but I love shopping for them. This package from Mr. Pen has everything you need to either set-up an office or restock your office. It retails for $9.99 right now on Amazon.
The package contains 100 medium width rubber bands and 100 small width rubber bands, 100 jumbo and 100 regular paperclips, and 5 large, 10 medium and 10 small binder clips. I'm allergic to rubber bands, so I couldn't test their strength and durability. 


The jumbo paperclips are about 2 inches long while the regular ones are about 1.25 inches long. 


The jumbo binder clips are 4 inches long, the mediums are 2 inches and the smalls are 1.5 inches long.

 All of the paper clips and binder clips are of the typical office quality. For the price, this is a great bargain. Buying all these items separately would cost almost twice as much. 

The box also comes with a mustache sticker. I ended up putting mine on the jar I keep rubber bands in.

5 Stars: 100% Natural Arabica Coffee Body Scrub 12 oz with Organic Ingredients

Image
As I've gotten older, I've started turning to more organic and natural products.  I've struggled with various allergies all my life.  I used to have to change my deodorant and laundry detergent every month to avoid rashes.  I came across this coffee scrub on Amazon for $14.95.  It is advertised to help minimize stretch marks.  I have tons of stretch marks on my stomach and thighs and thought it couldn't hurt to give it a try.
First off, this stuff smells amazing!  If you love coffee, you'll love this scrub.  It smells like fresh ground coffee.  The ingredient are all organic and it contains coffee, dead sea salt, cacao, sweet almond oil, olive oil, grape seed oil and coconut.  I was very encouraged by the fact that I knew what each of the ingredients are and that there wasn't anything artificial hiding in the mix.
The directions are easy to follow.  Spread on the targeted area.  Massage in a circular pattern on the skin.  Allow to dry for 5 to 10 minutes (I did 1…

5 Stars: CalilyLife Organic Argan Face Cream with Dead Sea Minerals, 1.7 Oz.

Image
I've tried Calily Life products previously and I loved them.  I use a light moisturizer during the day with SPF and at night I use a thicker face cream to really moisturize my skin.  I'm convinced that is why I look 15 years younger than I actually am (I turned 37 in August 2016).
The cream has a thick consistency and a lightly floral scent.   It rubbed in quickly and left my skin feeling immediately soft and supple.  This has replaced my current night cream which has a chemical smell to it even though it's supposed to be all natural and organic.  I have really sensitive skin and this cream didn't cause any reaction on my skin.

One of my favorite things about this lotion is that it contains all natural, organic ingredients.
