Throwing elbows: Simon and Tom Elbow Treatment Cream

Simon and Tom Elbow Treatment Cream

Simon and Tom Elbow Treatment Cream

The Moroccan Treatment Oil is good stuff, but my I think most favorite product from Simon & Tom is their Elbow Treatment Cream. This moisturizing cream also has Argan oil, that magical healing and softening ingredient which is nutrient rich in Vitamin E, antioxidants, and fatty acids that skin just loves.

I am not sure why my elbows get so dry and rough in the winter…does this happen to you too? Maybe I just exfoliate more in the summertime, but whatever the reason once I notice the problem it’s usually at the crisis stage. The Elbow Treatment Cream gives instant gratification with immediate softening of the area, and with regular use – and I mean just once a day – hard, dry, rough skin heals and becomes smooth. Use it after showering because it actually forms a barrier over your skin, keeping the area hydrated and protected.

I also find that it works wonders on knees and on hands, too. I wash my hands constantly and while I use non-drying hand soap at home, I never know what I am going to get when I’m out on the go. I actually wasn’t using this on my hands on purpose, but hey, I need to use them to apply the moisturizer to my elbows, right?? I saw a difference in my hands very quickly, so now I am a little more generous when I apply the elbow cream and smooth the extra on my knees and into my hands. It’s especially great for those tiny cracks that I get on my fingertips from the cold weather and drying indoor heat.  

I know that you, your elbows, your hands and knees will love the Elbow Treatment Cream from Simon & Tom.  Don’t be shy, throw some elbows and get a tube of this thick creamy goodness for yourself.  – Lisa

The magic of Argan oil: Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum

Argan oil…it seems like it is a magic elixir that cures all ills. I’ve recently tried a few products from the Simon & Tom line in which every product features the magical Argan oil. There are a few products in particular that I think are standouts, including the Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum ($34.99). As soon as it gets colder outside I start having two issues – dry, brittle hair and dry skin, especially on my elbows and knees. Simon & Tom has Argan oil products that help with any sort of dryness issues from hair to skin.                       PR sample

My hair is extremely fine and often hair oils are too heavy for me. While hair oils keep my hair from getting crunchy, they also steal all of my volume. The Simon & Tom Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum is a beautiful glass bottle full of great hair days. I love the pump that is included – usually this type of oil doesn’t have a pump dispenser so I end up wasting a bunch pouring too much into my hand. That said, I have to be careful to only do half a pump – more than that is too much product for my type of hair. Yes, those of us with fine hair walk a fine line with hair products!

The Argan oil in the Moroccan Treatment Hair Serum gets rid of frizz while it gives hair major shine. It also doesn’t build up over time, which makes hair dull. The oil smells wonderful, with a sweet, nutty fragrance. Soft, shiny, frizz-free hair that smells fabulous…you can’t really ask for more than that. Simon & Tom is the line to check out for Argan oil-based products. They make my hair look great, and just wait until I tell you about their Elbow Treatment Cream that is the answer for dry, rough skin.  – Lisa

Emtage Argan Oil Rollerballs help you on the go

Emtage Beauty is a company that wasn’t on my radar at all until they reached out to see if I’d like to try their products. I found some things about them that I instantly liked: they are an organic company that uses all natural ingredients, the were developed by a woman entrepeneur named Robin Emtage, and they are fair traded and sustainably produced by women co-operatives of the Argan forest. I was intrigued and decided to try these out. That was a great decision on my part.

Emtage Beauty Argan Oil Rollerballs

Emtage Beauty Argan Oil Rollerballs

There are two different rollerballs made by Emtage Beauty. ARGAN OIL ROLLERBALL is made of 100% Pure Argan Oil with the goal to Target & Revjuvenate Skin, Hair & Nails. ARGAN OIL ROSE HIP ROLLERBALL also is to Target & Rejuvenate but this one is aimed towards eyes, wrinkles, and dry skin.

The two rollerballs are purse and travel friendly since they fit in the palm of my hand with ease. I was all set to have Lisa review them if they had a fragrance but they are fragrance free so they are mine, mine, mine!! The prices are reasonable ($12 and $15) and they can be found at Whole Foods as well as bought online.

Emtage Beauty Rollerball

Emtage Beauty Argan Oil Rollerball is a clear not greasy oil that I especially love for my hands. Being in a rollerball form allows you to target exactly where you want this to be used. I’ll roll it over my cuticles and then massage in. It can be used on split ends to tame them from the Split End Monster. And it excels at protecting scars from hardening and skin from becoming too dry.

Target and Rejuvenate Skin, Hair, Nails

• Nourish and hydrate dry spots on face and body
• Brighten skin’s appearance
• Soften eyebrows and dry lashes
• Improve scars, stretch marks and sun spots
• Smooth split ends and rough edges
• Perfect for dry itchy scalp!
• Soothe damaged cuticles
• Moisturize dry nails
• Metal rollerball to increase circulation
• No spilling, no wasting
• Perfect for travel!
• Rejuvenate On The GO!
• Great for all skin types!

Emtage 100% Argan Oil

EMTAGE BEAUTY ARGAN OIL ROSE HIP OIL adds to the Argan Oil with Rose Hip Oil that’s also infused with Geranium essential oil “to provide instant hydration and age defying benefits to dehydrated, dry skin, wrinkles, fine lines and discoloration.” This oil starts with a light golden color that disappears as you roll it on. I like it because it helps with both dark circles and under eye puffiness. It’s also good for dry skin and to soften fine lines.

Not only are these two Argan Oil Rollerballs good for your skin but they are helpful to the earth and to women. As Ermtage Beauty told me “Emtage’s Argan oil is organic, virgin, cold pressed, expeller pressed, hexane free, NON GMO, fair traded and sustainably produced by women co-operatives of the Argan forest. Emtage Beauty is committed to women’s empowerment causes through out the world. They support fair trade women’s co-ops and charities that provide women’s advancement opportunities.”  Everything about this company and these products are what I want when looking for items I’m happy to review and recommend.

Have you heard of Emtage Beauty? They have a great line for hair, skin and nails so maybe it’s time to look. — Marcia

Defend your hair from the polar vortex with Mark Hill Salon Professional

If you want to tackle the hazards of winter hair, Mark Hill is your go-to guy.

Mark Hill

Mark Hill

The UK hair stylist Mark Hill won both ‘British Hairdresser of the Year’ and ‘International Hairdresser of the Year’ not just once – but twice each! He is known as the ‘Master of Sexy, Wearable Hair.’ Lucky for us, he also has a fantastic and affordable  hair care line, Mark Hill Salon Professional that takes care of dry, static-filled winter hair.

For super dry hair, I recommend the MiracOilicious products. They leave my hair incredibly soft and moistened, but not flat and limp.

Mark Hill MiracOilicious 2 Minute Treatment

Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Treatment

The Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment ($11.99) is a hair mask that I use once a week to save my ends from indoor heat and outdoor frigid air. I like to put this on the entire length of my hair, although if you have oily roots you might want to just concentrate on lower half. It makes my hair so happy – I am extremely impressed with the way it repairs dry ends and leaves my hair wonderfully shiny.

Mark Hill MiracOilicious Moroccan Argan Oil

Mark Hill MiracOILicious Moroccan Argan Oil

The Mark Hill MiracOILicious Argan Oil ($11.99) is terrific on damp hair. It moisturizes, repairs, and even speeds up dry time. I love, love, love this oil and it’s a great price for an argan oil.

Now, if frizz is your main enemy, I would advise you try the Defrizz-ilicious products.

Mark Hill Defrizzilicious

The Mark Hill Defrizz-ilicious Oh So Smooth De-Frizz Conditioner ($9.99) is a big tube of conditioning goodness for hair. The secret ingredient is something called Sea Silk. I am not sure what that is, but it definitely leaves my hair silky soft and free of frizz.

Some real hair magic - Mark Hill Magic Drops

Some real hair magic – Mark Hill Magic Drops

I think the Mark Hill Defrizz-ilicious Magic Drops Rescue and Repair Treatment ($11.99) has a perfect name because this leave-in treatment is magical for dry hair. I have great results on my hair, but the ultimate test was on my youngest daughter’s hair. She wears a knit hat and you know how baby fine hair goes like this once the hat is off:

Well, when I smooth some Magic Drops into her damp hair, she can wear her knit hat knowing she won’t become the fly-away queen.

The magic ingredients include Micro Wheat Proteins & Keravis, which create some sort of alchemy that make this leave-in treatment pretty miraculous.

My Mark Hill hair - look ma, no frizz!

My Mark Hill hair – look ma, no frizz!

My  hair is very fine, so moisturizing products that tackle frizz often leave it so weighed down I can’t get a curl. Mark Hill Salon Professional products give me soft, conditioned, volumized hair with no static or frizz, even in the middle of a polar vortex. This is a TERRIFIC hair care line and I highly recommend it!

You can find Mark Hill Salon Professional internationally at Boots stores and in the US at Walgreens and Ulta.  – Lisa
