My 3 musts for May or any time #farmhousefresh #ageloc #shickintuition

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Tonic, Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor, NuSkin LumiSpa Treatment Cleanser

As we are closing out the month of May I wanted you to know about 3 products that are getting a ton of love in my house. I sometimes forget when I use a product constantly that I should be sharing so I’m remedying that right now with three favorites.

ageLOC LumiSpa

I reviewed the ageLOC LumiSpa from Nu Skin months ago but at the time I didn’t have the cleanser. The company graciously sent it to me so I can see why these two go together like mac & cheese or Harry & Meghan. Once I received the Treatment Cleanser my experience with the ageLOC LumiSpa went from great to awesome. The “brush” on the LumiSpa is unlike other cleansing machines so having this cleanser that’s included in the system makes my skin smoother and my pores cleaner.

The cleanser is included in the kit and also can be purchased separately. There are five different types (sensitive, normal/combo, dry, acne, and oily) so that all skin types are covered by ageLOC. They are formulated to cushion your skin while the LumiSpa does it dual action job but they work well without the machine. This is a great addition to your skincare routine.

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner

As you can see from my recent photo of FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner, it’s gotten a lot of use! In spite of the fact that I moan about fragrance in products, FarmHouse Fresh is the exception to the rule. Whenever FHF comes our way Lisa and I have to argue over who gets to review the products and happily I won this time. What sold me on this is the catchphrase: “Poof! go your pores.” As a teen I had very oily skin and awful blackheads. As an adult I’m glad that I had the oily skin since I’ve aged better because of it but the blackheads led to large pores that have plagued me all my life. So any time a product promises to help with pores I’m going to want to try it.

What makes this toner stand out is that it’s an alcohol-free toner that will smoothe skin while helping with moisture. It uses U.S. grown organic aronia berries which is one of the highest antioxidant fruits ever. It helps reduce the look of fine lines too. Now we all know that the pores aren’t going away so the best we can hope for is that they appear like they aren’t there. It contains Rose Water, Aronia Berry Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside.

Rose water – the steamed distillate of Rosa Damascena flower – hydrating, anti-inflammatory, and calming.

Aronia Berry extract – Contains the highest recorded antioxidant concentration of any fruit or vegetable.

Sodium Hyaluronate – the salt form of skin-identical hyaluronic acid – which can help boost skin’s moisture content and prevent moisture loss.

Ascorbyl Glucoside – a stable form of vitamin C and glucose – a combination that functions as an antioxidant to help skin preserve key substances needed to look younger and brighter.

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner

The smell is really delightful. I don’t care for rose so at first I was hesitant but it’s the berry that comes through. While you can spray it on during the day I like to use it on a cotton pad in the morning before moisturizer. FarmHouse Fresh is a brand that I totally trust, one that is 99% NATURAL | VEGAN | GLUTEN-FREE | NO PARABENS | NO SULFATES | NO PHTHALATES. Yes, you want this and need it!

Schick Intuition f.a.b.

Now the last is the Schick® Intuition® f.a.b.™. I don’t know how I lived without this. I received it and put it aside for a while since a razor is a razor is a razor. But this has two completely different blades in it so the concept of shaving has been turned on its head.

The unique razor head shaves both forwards and backwards. For someone who wasn’t encouraged to shave I never really knew if I was doing it right. But now I know and this head is the bomb. If you don’t want to buy the whole razor you’ll find that the razor head fits Venus razors too. I’ve already ordered refill blades.

Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor

The bi-directional blades allow you to shave either up or down without even lifting the razor. I admit that I have to shave certain areas on my face. I have dark, thick hairs that make me feel like people are staring at me. So about three times a week I shave those hairs. To get close to my nose I can now shave up! You don’t know how easy it makes it for me now.

The Schick® Intuition® f.a.b.™ razor makes shaving everywhere easier and almost enjoyable. No woman wants to shave legs, underarms or face but most of us need to. Might as well use a unique razor that was made with us in mind.

What are your May musts? I’m sure all 3 of these will be June musts for me too.  —  Marcia

The Tree Hut Bare collection is going to change your bath time

We’re fairly new to the Tree Hut family of products but we think we’ll be sticking around for a while. Tree Hut’s representatives sent us a package of their BARE products to get to know the brand and we’ve been busy using them. We’re excited about sharing these so that you can become a part of the family too.

Marcia is sharing 2 Tree Hut Bare products that are making her smooth as can be

Tree Hut Bare Shave Prep and Hair Remover

Tree Hut Bare Shave Prep and Hair Remover

TREE HUT SHAVE PREP SUGAR SCRUB ($9.99)

This tub friendly scrub is helping me shave my legs and underarms. I like this much better than a shaving cream because it’s a double duty product. It exfoliates my legs and at the same time lifts the hair so that I can get a closer shave.

Tree Hut Shave Prep Sugar Scrub

Tree Hut Shave Prep Sugar Scrub

The fragrance of this delicious and makes me wish I had a bigger hot water tank so I could enjoy exfoliating my legs longer. It softens my skin and leaves it lightly scented after. I use an unscented body lotion after shaving my legs so that the lightly fragrance of almond/coconut aroma sticks around longer.

It’s formulated with Oat Kernel which helps soothe and relieve skin irritation. There’s Avocado Oil in it and sugar and those help exfoliate and moisturize. Coconut Extract is a natural product that contains the necessary proteins for tissue repair. Put them all together with your favorite razor and you have soft sleek skin.

TREE HUT BARE HAIR REMOVING SUGAR WAX KIT ($14.99)

Tree Hut Bare Hair Removing Sugar Wax Kit

Tree Hut Bare Hair Removing Sugar Wax Kit

This is a new type of product for me. I’ve never waxed by myself before so this was a paradigm change for me. I have only tried it on my legs but I’m anxious to try it on my face since it’s good for removing hair on your legs, body, and face.

To use you remove the cap and heat the jar in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and reheat in 15 second intervals if needed. What you want is the consistency of honey. With one of the sticks in the kit apply the wax on clean skin in the direction of hair growth. Make sure that the amount you apply is smaller than the size of the strip. While warm smooth the strip over the product and rub in the same direction. Now comes the scary part  –  hold your skin taut and remove the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. It’s best if you hair is about 1/4″ long before use which is why I haven’t tried it on my face yet.

The kit contains 8 oz. of Hair Removing Sugar Wax, 10 wax strips, and 3 wooden applicators. It’s not a one time deal since you can use it again by just heating up the jar.

Ingredients: Honey, Sucrose, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylexylglycerin

TREE HUT BARE MOISTURIZING SHAVE OIL  ($11.99)

Wow, is this stuff amazing!! I typically just reach for some soap when I am shaving my legs or under my arms, but not anymore. I adore this deliciously scented shaving oil. It smells fantastic…like tropical freshness. Smooth it onto wet skin and even a dull razor just glides across skin. It leaves your skin with the closest shave imaginable and the softest skin ever.  This is a real keeper.

TREE HUT BARE HAIR MINIMIZING BODY BUTTER ($9.99)

Another super smelling product!! This is a thick, creamy body butter that gradually reduces hair growth. You have to use it for a month before seeing noticeable results. I used it for five weeks and did notice a difference. I’m sure that if I continued with it, I would have even better results, but since I’m not a very hairy person to begin with and I have so many body products to try I probably won’t.

My daughter, however, is really excited about this and is already bugging me to stop by Ulta to get another jar. I will probably just use it as a body butter from time to time because it does a fabulous job of softening skin and it smells tropical and fresh.

If you want to freshen up your hair removal routine, we recommend checking out the Tree Hut…the BIZ gives it high marks and we can’t wait to try other products from this excellent line. You can find Tree Hut products online at Amazon and at Ulta stores.

HeadBlade ATX – the best gift for BCA you’d never know about

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

Shave for a Cure is the slogan for this amazing HeadBlade ATX-Pink razor. I’m in awe with it’s cuteness and the incredible cause it was made for. I’m in awe in general with this company that sent me the ATX-Pink but has many other colors available. I’ll tell you right now, it would make a unique stocking stuffer for both men and women.

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, HeadBlade created a limited edition pink version with 30% of the proceeds for October to be donated to Bright Pink. Bright Pink is a national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in your women. Their mission is to save lives and empower women proactively at a young age. Founded in 2007, Bright Pink strives to reach 52 million women in the US between the ages of 18 and 45 with life saving education.

Why do you want the ATX-Pink besides the fact that it has such a mighty mission?

🙂  It provides a great shave for heads, legs and body. ATX stands for All-Terrain so that makes sense!

🙂  It has a distinctive finger ring and suspension that allows for easy shaving and added stability. It’s great to use in the bath/shower.

🙂  The blade is suspended in the back by a unique spring-action device to reduce nicks and cuts.

🙂  The actual shaving head has a multi-blade technology that features a flow-through design for easy and efficient cleaning.

This is the HB4 edition, there is also a HB6 version.

HeadBlade is an interesting company with many shaving products. I’m sure I’d never have learned about them if I hadn’t wanted to promote their Shave for a Cure cause but now that I know about HeadBlade I think it’s going to help in gift giving. They sell individual razors in a variety of colors, blades, shaving creams, and complete sets. For ATX-Pink the set includes ATX LE Pink HeadBlade, one HB4 refill kit, and one 5 oz. bottle of our award winning HeadSlick shave cream.

I hope you’ll consider this over the next week to help contribute to Bright Pink and get a great shaving tool. The razor alone (in any color) is $15 while the kit is $29.97. Razor refills are $9.97 for 4 blades and the adaptor. Imagine the surprise when someone finds this in their stocking or as a gift. We are always looking for items that our friends and family don’t already have and this is THAT gift. Help yourself look smoother while helping others in their quest for health.  —  Marcia

p.s. Even men like pink but there are many colors to choose from.

p.p.s. Obviously this needs to be kept away from young children.
