Hitting a grand slam with Erborian, EB5, and ESPA

Baseball on the field. New white ball on green grass

The day I’m writing this the weather turned into spring – 75 degrees with blue skies and sun all day. The perfect day to watch baseball, whether it’s the Detroit Tigers or Little League games. I’ve got 4 products that are also perfect for this kind of day that you’ll want to add to your warm weather routine.

eb5 Age Spot Treatment, eb5 Foot Treatment, ESPA Lip Balm, Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

ERBORIAN BAMBOO CREME FRAPPEE

This is a very fluffy gel that has the most unique texture. It’s almost like a slush and it’s wonderfully soft. It melts into skin almost immediately in order to moisturize and rehydrate. Sitting outside, even with great sunscreen on, dehydrates your skin. Bamboo Creme Frappee adds that moisture back so you feel comfortable.

Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

Korean skincare is having its moment and Erborian is one of the most highly rated lines. They’ve taken the fiber of bamboo stalks and blended it with bamboo sap to create a waterlock complex, this offers your skin extra moisture. The sap contains amino acid for hydration while the fibers contain proteins and lipids to help maintain your skin’s own moisture.

This light green gel is a wonderful picker-upper after a day outside. While it’s meant to be used on your face, it can be used on your body for that refreshing feeling. Like all Korean skincare that I’ve tried, it is fragranced with a sweetness to it. This is sold exclusively at Sephora (and Sephora.com) for $43.

eb5 AGE SPOT TREATMENT and FOOT TREATMENT

eb5 is a new company introduced to me and I’m loving their products as well as their site which is women owned. It’s a pleasure to support a brand run by women that is also free of paraben, fragrance, and gluten, is allergy tested, cruelty free, non-GMO, and vegan. As great as those attributes are it’s the products themselves that will sell you.

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream

eb5 Age Spot Treatment

eb5 Age Spot Treatment

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream is a product you can use day or night on any part of your body that you want to fade sunspots and discoloration. This contains 2% Hydroquinone to help lighten skin and fade the spots. It also contains Argan Oil for hydration and nourishment. 2% Hydroquinone is the highest percentage allowed without a prescription. It’s $24.99 for a big 6 oz tube at Target. I’ve been using this on my arms because I’m really tired of the spots and I’m hoping to see an improvement. Since hands show signs of aging quickly I’m fighting that with this fade cream. I’ve started using it on my upper lip since that always seems darker than the rest of my face and it’s working! I will be using this on the rest of my face once my derm appointments stop.

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment is my foot savior now. This wonderful, slightly minty smelling, cream gently exfoliates, refreshes and soothes my aching feet. I no longer have cracked feet after using this during February and March. I like taking it into the shower with me and applying it while I’m drying off, I also like using it once I get into bed. It contains anti-fungal eucalyptus, tea tree oil, vitamins, and a blend of ingredients (sugar cane, chamomile, and sandalwood). All of those work together to improve the texture of your feet and rejuvenate the monsters they became during the winter. Let me tell you my secret about eb5 Foot Treatment – I use it on my hands too! Oh yes I do. Sometimes my hands become scaly and rough since I wash them constantly. When that happens I reach for this and I find that it works almost instantly. Later I’ll use a hand cream for more softening but eb5 comes first. The Foot Treatment is only $9.99 at Target and well worth every penny.

ESPA MANDARIN LIP BALM

ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm

ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm

For some of us lip balm is a necessity – that includes me. I’m always slathering on lip balm for my dry and aging lips. I love all varieties of it but especially a piece of luxury like the ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm provides ($28). This beautiful small compact contains a balm that is lightly fragranced with a variety of oils and butters (Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil Expressed, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Irvingia Gabonensis Kernel Butter, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil,  Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil).

The formula is 100% natural and delightful to have on my lips. I don’t love that it’s a in a pot but the balm makes up for that inconvenience.

Enriched with a 100% natural formulation, derived from the finest ingredients including Mandarin Essential oil for a sweet citrus flavour and aroma, Wild Mango Butter to condition, soften and smooth, Pomegranate to increase hydration and Rosemary to protect against environmental damage which can lead to premature ageing. Our Mandarin Lip Balm is presented in a beautiful compact complete with integral mirror.

These 4 products have been my Grand Slam delights and I’m glad I finally got around to sharing these with you. Summer, fall, winter, or spring they’ll help you get the ball moving and your skin and lips in their best shape yet. What a way to start the season! — Marcia

ChapStick® Tropical Paradise Collection: Mango Sunrise and Aloha Coconut

ChapStick® Tropical Paradise Collection: Mango Sunrise and Aloha Coconut

Of course with the recently brutal winter days here in Michigan I have been longing for soft warm breezes, hot sand, and crisp ocean water. I adore the ChapStick® Tropical Paradise Collection because these balms not only make my lips summer soft, they also taste like a tropical vacation. While I love them both, I carry the Aloha Coconut flavor with me everywhere and I simply won’t be without it.

ChapStick® Sun Defense

ChapStick® Sun Defense

Even in winter it’s important to keep in mind that the sun can do damage to the fragile lip area. ChapStick® Sun Defense is super moisturizing plus it is a great multi-tasker, providing lips with SPF protection too.

ChapStick® Original and Medicated

ChapStick® Original and Medicated

How about that original formula? It really brings back memories of walking up to the town pharmacy to buy a tube…it was the very first beauty item that I ever bought. And when I end up with sore, chapped lips thanks to a cold, the ChapStick® Medicated is so soothing and healing.

ChapStick® Classic Range: Original, Strawberry, Cherry, and Spearmint

ChapStick® Classic Range: Original, Strawberry, Cherry, and Spearmint

There is a reason the classic ChapStick® has been around for so long and the Classic Range comes in great flavors that will really take you back – Strawberry, Cherry, and Spearmint. They are fantastic for defending lips from wind and cold weather and perfect for your coat pocket when out skiing, snowboarding, or snowmobiling.

ChapStick® Moisturizer Original

ChapStick® Moisturizer Raspberry Creme

ChapStick® Moisturizer: Raspberry Crème, Original, Green Apple, and Vanilla Mint

ChapStick® Moisturizer: Original, Green Apple, and Vanilla Mint

I am crazy about the ChapStick® Moisturizer range because nothing beats dry lips faster!  The formula has more than 7 moisturizing ingredients including aloe and vitamins, so you know one application will leave your pucker silky soft. Flavors include original, Green Apple, Vanilla Mint, and Raspberry Creme. I like them all but my favorite is Vanilla Mint. It smells delicious and tastes yummy and fresh.

ChapStick® Aloha Coconut

I’m never without my ChapStick® Aloha Coconut!

I think everyone should have a ChapStick® in their coat pocket, purse, and car – even when it gets crazy hot out I never have a problem with my car ChapStick® melting.

Ellovi – the “6 only” lip and body butter company

ellovi BUTTER and Tinted Lip Balm

ellovi BUTTER and Tinted Lip Balm

ELLOVI is a company that I’ve been using on and off for the last few years. It’s an all natural and vegan skincare company that is manufactured in California. Their philosophy is one that they are proud of and it’s obvious why.

Purity  Ingredients so pure you can eat them

Compassion  No animal testing or ingredients

Sustainability  Wildly harvested, reusable glass jar

pr samples

ellovi hand makes all their products. They are created in small batches, they are cruelty-free and sustainable, and the 6 ingredients used are so pure that they are edible.
 
ellovi BUTTER

ellovi BUTTER

 

ellovi uses exactly 6 ingredients in their body butter. There are 4 fragrances (original, vanilla, mint chocolate, and blossom) and I’ve tried two of them. I was sent the full size Vanilla BUTTER and a mini Original to test and it reminded me of why I used up my first jar of BUTTER.

INGREDIENTS:
Macadamia, Hawaiian coconut, shea, hemp seed, African marula, and non-GMO corn starch.

Macadamia Coconut Shea Hemp Seed Marula
The creators of Ellovi are obviously purists. Normally when we say something is a Butter we expect it to be a body butter but Ellovi’s BUTTER is more than that. According to Ellovi it’s also good as –
  • All-over body butter (great for massages)
  • Night-time facial moisturizer
  • Natural sunscreen (SPF 5 – 10)
  • Makeup remover (try it on a cotton ball)
  • Great for sensitive skin, eczema, and rosacea

    ellovi BUTTER

    ellovi BUTTER

When you open this jar you’ll see a product that looks solid.  But scoop some out and you’ll find that it softens to the point where it’s almost an oil. The ingredients are great: Macadamia nut oil is full of fatty acids to fade fine lines, while coconut oil is a time-tested moisturizer and hemp seed oil wards off pollutants. Ghanaian marula nut oil helps nourish aging skin, and shea butter deeply hydrates. The result: a rich, handcrafted cream with that won’t clog pores and is safe for sensitive skin. Bonus: The butter’s intrinsic sun-blocking abilities are equal to an SPF 10.
.
I like to apply this as soon as I get out of the shower to give my skin the chance to absorb the richness and protect my body from drying out. Scoop some out of your full size jar and keep it next to your bed so you can apply it to your feet to help keep them moisturized too. While I haven’t used it as a makeup remover that does sound pretty interesting.

ellovi Tinted Balm

ellovi Tinted Butter

There are 5 Lip Butters that Ellovi produces too. I have the Tinted Balm which you can see is looks like it’s tinted red. Individual Lip Butters are $5 each while the Collection ($18) has Tinted, Original, Vanilla, and Blossom plus it comes in a cute tin.

The Tinted Lip Butter lightly tints my lips with just a hint of red. It’s a very natural look that adds moisture with a small bit of color. The color is provided by a Mediterranean flower called Akanet. Here’s what you’ll find with Ellovi’s Lip Butter –
  • Intense lip moisturizer
  • Excellent for chapped lips
  • Soaks in deep and and lasts
  • Lead free color (so pure you can eat it)
  • Oval tube (comfortable in your pocket)

The tube is 0.15 ounces and will keep your lips intensely hydrated for months. They recommend using Lip Butter within 1 year. Just like the Butter it also contains just 6 ingredients: Sunflower, macadamia, Hawaiian coconut, shea, Alkanet root, and African marula.

Just think 6 and you’ll come up with ellovi, a natural, vegan company you can be proud to enjoyably use.  — Marcia

LISA’S SIDE:  ORGANIC COCONUT OIL SKIN FOOD ($14.99)

All Good Organic Coconut Oil Skin FoodI have such a hard time with dry skin and cuticles in the winter. Hangnails are the bane of my existence and I am a picker so I just can’t stay away from making them even worse. The All Good by Elemental Herbs Organic Coconut Oil Skin Food has absolutely saved my poor cuticles so far this season. Coconut oil skin care products are interesting – the oil actually hardens, but it melts immediately with body temperature, so I just rub my fingertips along the top of the hardened oil to get enough product for rubbing on my cuticles.

All Good Organic Coconut Oil Skin Food

It’s also a great multi-tasker, working as an eye cream, soothing dry patches on my arms, and smoothing fly-away and static-filled hair. This is completely all natural – you can even eat it if you want! It’s also great for babies, so if you have any little ones or grandbabies you will definitely want to consider this. It’s made from organic and sustainably sourced raw pressed, unrefined virgin coconut oil and is cruelty-free. It also comes scented – if you love essential oils you might want to consider the Lemongrass or Lavender scents. I am happy to be on the coconut oil bandwagon and even more happy to have found this great multi-tasking organic product!

MARCIA’S SIDE:  COCONUT CERTIFIED ORGANIC LIP BALM

My morning and night routine

My morning and night routine

There are certain things I do every single morning and evening without fail. Brush, floss, gargle and apply lip balm. With All Good Coconut Certified Organic Lip Balm my day is started and ended perfectly.

All Good Coconut Certified Organic Lip Balm

All Good Coconut Certified Organic Lip Balm

All Good by Elemental Herbs is a great company to turn to for your lip balm needs. Like our intro told you it’s an organic vegan brand that uses all natural ingredients. Beside the delicious Coconut Lip Balm this comes in several varieties. All Good not only has this lip balm in Coconut and Original but they also have balms with SPF 18 and SPF 20. The balms with sunscreen come in more flavors like Chai, Tangerine and Spearmint. All SPF flavors are oxybenzone free. A single lip balm only costs $3.50 plus they have a variety of sets.

All Good Coconut Lip Balm

All Good Coconut Lip Balm

What I love about this balm is it’s just soft enough to do the job without melting away. I prefer a lip balm in a wind up tube like this since it’s so easy to apply. The coconut is a wonderful scent that reminds me of a Mounds Bar. It is a pleasure to apply this. It lasts a good amount of time and it smells so good that I don’t mind reapplying when needed.

All Good Tinted Lip Balms

All Good Tinted Lip Balms

All Good also has Tinted Lip Balms in 6 different shades ($4.99 each). I’d love a little Alpine Pink in my life. The tinted balms are also gluten free, carmine free and use the safest sun production ingredient: pure, non-nano Zinc Oxide.  There’s obviously a lot to like about All Good’s Lip Balms and enough varieties to keep you from getting bored over the long winter.

We’re glad to have discovered this brand think you will be too. Check out the ALL GOOD by ELEMENTAL HERBS website to see what great, well priced items they have created.

Think Pink with Korres Mandarin Lip Butter

Think pink

Think pink

As soon as I received Korres’ new Mandarin Lip Butter Stick I started to “think pink”. Actually I’m thinking very light pink for this one. Korres has been known for their Lip Butter for quite a while and people love them BUT they come in a pot which isn’t always to everyone’s liking. Now though there’s a lip butter available using their hydrating and softening lip ingredients in stick form and it’s so easy to use.

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter

Four colors plus untinted are ready to conquer chapped lips and keep them away. The Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks are available in Rose, Purple (berry tint), Pink and Peach. The tint is very light on the Pink and I’m sure the Peach too. It gives my lips just the tiniest hint of color but it feels so good!

 

Description: cid:image001.jpg@01D105EA.03EF0FE0Description: cid:image003.jpg@01D105EA.03EF0FE0 Description: cid:image005.jpg@01D105EA.03EF0FE0

Let’s talk about these great ingredients:

*Mandarin Oil refreshes and soothes dry lips, especially chapped lips

*Shea Butter and Sunflower Wax deeply nourish your lips for long lasting comfort.

*Vitamin E is for healing and known for its advanced antioxidant properties

*There are no Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates,  and these aren’t tested on animals

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter in Pink

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter in Pink

At first I was going to call this a warm pink but the tint is actually too sheer to give my lips much color. It enhances my natural lip color so it’s perfect for wearing when I don’t want to wear lipstick. I’m healing my lips at all times when I wear this.

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter in Pink

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter in Pink

For me this is a great alternative to a regular lip balm. There is no fragrance or taste which is perfect for me personally. Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick isn’t sticky which equals happiness in my book. Each of the 5 Lip Butter Sticks have their own great packaging. My pink tube has found a permanent home in my cosmetic bag and brings a “smize” when I open and use it. If you are looking for softer lips and sheer color then Korres should be in your future. — Marcia

Why not let C.O. Bigelow take a shower with you?

C.O. Bigelow Grapefruit Body  Cleanser

C.O. Bigelow Grapefruit Body
Cleanser

I remember the first time I bought a shower gel. I was a latecomer to the world of bath and body products and basically just used an unscented bar of soap in the shower. When I learned I was missing out on a whole world of products I started shopping around but everything was too perfumey or artificial smelling for my nose. I finally came across C.O. Bigelow aka C.O. Bigelow Apothecary and realized I’d found a brand that I could tolerate. I don’t remember if the first Body Cleanser I bought was Lemon or Grapefruit but I know it was one of those.

When C.O. Bigelow offered to send a Grapefruit scented Body Wash I was absolutely thrilled to have this experience again. It woke up all my memories and my senses once I started using it in the shower after all these years.

C.O. Bigelow Grapefruit Body Cleanser

C.O. Bigelow Grapefruit Body Cleanser

This $12 bottle of cleanser has been living in my shower for a few weeks now and seems quite content there. My body is also content with using this. I am very happy that this is a more natural smelling shower gel without any of the artificialness I dislike. Instead it’s a zesty grapefruit scent that I love on my body. It even leaves my bathroom smelling so pleasant afterwards.

C.O. Bigelow Body Cleanser

C.O. Bigelow Body Cleanser

This lathers up beautifully and a little goes a long way when I’m using a shower pouf. If you aren’t a citrus fan there are other fragrances besides lemon and grapefruit like Lavender, Lime & Coriander, Mentha, Coconut, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary Mint. My skin feels nicely moisturized after my shower and I love that they use Aloe Vera Gel to produce this effect.

C.O. Bigelow Lip Balm

C.O. Bigelow Lip Balm

As the weather cools I’m finding that my C.O. Bigelow Lemon Lip Balm ($7.50) is getting more and more use. This contains Shea Butter which helps to nourish and condition lips. It also is Vitamin C rich and has a concentration of lemon oil and lemon extract to provide a dose of Vitamin C to my lips. I find this to be very soft and easy to apply. I mostly wear it alone but I’ve also used it as a base for a lip color or to add a little shine and moisture to a lipstick. It does contain sodium saccharin though so be aware of that.

A big surprise to me is that the official C.O. Bigelow site carries dozens of other brands besides their own so getting to free shipping will be easy! C.O. Bigelow products are cruelty free, reasonably priced and trustworthy.  Do you feel like jumping in the shower with C.O. Bigelow too?? — Marcia
