Several days a week I get a little extra shower time and when I do I’m always thrilled to relax a bit and use some favorite products. Two that I’ve been using are *SCALISI SKINCARE CLEANSER AND EXFOLIATOR and *AFTERSPA BODY SCRUB in Macadamia-Coconut. Both of these have the most marvelous textures and make me smooth from head to toe.

Scalisi’s Cleanser and Exfoliator is one of the most gentle exfoliating products that I’ve used. This doesn’t strip my skin of natural oils but it does gently exfoliate the dead skin cells with tiny micro-beads. It contains jojoba, macadamia nut and sunflower oils which help moisturize so that I leave my shower with cleansed skin that feels great. It also contains time released vitamins A, C and E to give my face antioxidant protection and extra nourishment.

This is gentle enough to use daily and even twice a day. I find it doesn’t take extra effort to remove the microbeads from my face which happens with a heavy exfoliant. I keep it in my shower and use it at least 5 days a week but for sure on my “spa” days. I massage it onto my face and inhale deeply. The fragrance is minimal but the results are maximum.

AFTERSPA BODY SCRUB (MACADAMIA-COCONUT)

AfterSpa is a brand new company that is under the umbrella of Daily Concepts. There are only a few products that are in creation and I was lucky enough to be sent two of them. There are two scents that their products will be available in Macadamia-Coconut and Honey-Mint. Happily I received Macadamia-Coconut and I love the mild yet intoxicating fragrance of it. It doesn’t interfere with any other product you put on after your shower but I wish it lingered longer (and that’s coming from a fragrance-phobe).

This very gentle and nourishing body scrub has the most unusual texture. It’s silky looking and feeling. With some shower scrubs I have a hard time removing it all if I forget to put a washcloth or shower scrubby in the shower. But AfterSpa doesn’t give me that problem nor does it get my shower floor slippery. I really love the feel of this and how perfectly and gently it exfoliates my body.

There’s only one bad thing about AfterSpa — it’s hard to find. At the current time it’s only sold at Ross stores, not online. I sure hope that gets corrected soon. But if you are a Ross shopper, be sure to check out all their special products knowing it’s made by an eco-friendly company that is keeping the consumer cost under control just like other Daily Concept products.  — Marcia

Get your beauty rest with Daily Options Sleep Mask

Daily Concepts Sleep Mask

Daily Concepts Sleep Mask

When this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask showed up in my mailbox one day I wondered what it was. It’s too small to be a bra so I kept thinking. Once I saw the Daily Concepts logo on it I had a clue. A Sleep Mask it was.

I’m not sure how the PR rep knew I have insomnia unless she reads the BIZ often but this is a great item for me.

“This soft and lightweight Sleep Mask blacks-out even the brightest room for restful sleep at home or on-the-go. Features contour design and adjustable strap for a super-comfortable fit.”

As you can see the inside is a dark black and it conquers the light that streams into my bedroom. The smallest things wake me up and light is one of the biggest culprits. On the nights I have trouble sleeping I’ll turn on a sleep app on my iPad, put on this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask and try to fall asleep. It usually works too.

It’s soft and comfortable and it’s easy to adjust. To clean it I wash it in the sink and let it air dry. I’d worry about the washing machine twisting it but they say it’s washable.

  • Soft and lightweight
  • Patented contour design
  • Will not smudge makeup
  • Adjustable strap
  • Washable

This is especially great if you travel. I have a lot of trouble when I’m not in my own bed and I believe this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask would make a world of difference. Since it’s only $12 it’s affordable. Now if I could only afford the airfare to get me away from winter!!

Have you ever used a sleep mask? This is new for me and feels like a luxury item but at a realistic price. — Marcia
