A perfect set for Valentine’s Day or any day you want to get close to your sweetie, the Teadora Rainforest Spa Love Ritual Set ($69, an $88 value), is exactly what the love doctor ordered.

Teadora Spa Love Ritual Set

This beautiful set includes a 6 oz Body Polish, a 2 oz Bath & Body Oil, and an 8 oz Body Butter…everything you need for clean, soft, pampered skin. All of the products include ingredients straight from the Amazon for an exotic and powerful experience.

Teadora Spa Love Ritual Set Exfoliant

The Body Polish is a huge tube of exfoliating mud that has Açaí Seeds and Amazonian White Clay. It gently exfoliates skin and has a raw, earthy scent that is very romantic.

Teadora Spa Love Ritual Set Bath and Body Oil

Follow this with the fantastic Bath & Body Oil that is infused with Teadora’s RainforestHydration ElixirTM, a nutritious rainforest serum with rich Amazon Superfruit oils. I have two friends who swear by this body oil and wear it every single day. It not only hydrates and gently scents the skin, it also makes for some killer massages!

Teadora Spa Love Ritual Set Body Butter

Finally, end by slathering one another with the Body Butter infused with Teadora’s exclusive RainforestRestoration ElixirTM + Argan Plant Stem Cells. This thick, beautiful body cream penetrates all the way to the skin’s middle layer, healing from the inside out. It melts into skin like butter and the results are pretty amazing.

Teadora Spa Love Ritual Set soaps

You get a Kayapo makeup bag, plus two travel-sized soaps, the Beauty Bar with Coffee Butter and  Patauá Oil and Exfoliating Bar with Açaí Seeds and Amazonian Clay.

Shades for a perfect nude lip

Nude lips 3The nude lip look is everywhere – it’s definitely not a trend that is going away any time soon!  I am always on the lookout for products that creat a perfect nude lip.  I have thin lips without much pigment, so I have to be careful the nude isn’t too white (makes me look like a zombie) or too brown (makes me look DOA).  Here are some products that were sent to the BIZ that together give a ton of different gorgeous nude lip looks.

Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter

Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter

1.  Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter ($15)  Are you surprised?  No, this doesn’t give lips a yellow cast…in fact, it doesn’t have any color at all. But this little pot is packed with antioxidants and vitamins, including Buriti, Brazil Nut, Andoriba, Maracuja, and Acai Oils, plus Cupaucu, Murumuru, and mango butters. This is a dual functioning lip treatment that can be used as either a light exfoliator or a lip moisturizer. It leaves lips healthy and flake-free, ready for liner and gloss. It comes in two flavors:  Laranja, a juicy citrus flavor, and Acai-Acu, berry chocolate.

Ecoconscious sensory beauty: Teadora Nourishing Bath and Body Oils

Teadora 4In Portuguese, “Teadora” means “adore you”.  Teadora Beauty not only adores you, it adores the earth with unique products that feature rainforest ingredients.  Teadora skin care products are created for ‘sensory beauty’, a complete immersion into lush ingredients and fragrance that  transport you to the Amazonian rainforest.  Teadora only uses sustainable organic ingredients so they can share Brazil while giving back to their community, as well as to the entire earth.

Teadora carries a range of body products from lip butters to body cleansers to hair products.  Every product sold supports rainforests deforestation, as well as the EARTH FOR YOU, YOU FOR EARTH movement which focuses on youth education, leadership development, and health. They sent the BIZ two beautiful Nourishing Bath and Body Oils to test, Rainforest at Dawn and Rainforest at Dusk.

Teadora Body Oils

Teadora Body Oils

I adore body oils in general.  They hydrate skin, leave a soft scent, and give skin a beautiful, luminous glow.  Not all body oils are alike, however, some are definitely better than others.  Teadora Nourishing Bath and Body Oils stand out because of their truly impressive Brazilian ingredients:

Buriti is an amazingly powerful ingredient. It contains the highest concentration of natural vitamin A among fruits and vegetables. It is also rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin C and antioxidants and has been used for generations as a natural UV ray protectant. Its amazing anti-inflammatory properties also help to promote skin healing.

Maracujá (or Passion Fruit) is known as the “Pure Miracle” in Brazil as it brightens, moisturizes, heals, and repairs skin and hair without feeling greasy or heavy. Good for all skin types-from dry to oily.

Brazil Nut is a light, sweet, and nutty oil that is wonderful for the entire body. It absorbs quickly, and provides powerful moisture and healing to the skin, hair, and face.

Babassu is made from the nuts of wild-growing Brazilian palm trees. It is also a more effective skin oil than coconut oil. It is high in essential acids to cool, sooth, protect, restore, and moisturize any skin type.

Plant Stem Cells, we use stem cells from the Argan tree to help rejuvenate your skin’s middle layer, where wrinkles start. It is known to protect dermal stem cells reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tighten and tone skin tissue and  increases skin firmness and density.

Teadora Bath and Body Oils have a ton of antioxidants to fight free radicals, plus tremendously hydrating ingredients that leave skin soft, supple, and healthy looking.  There are two scents from which to choose:  Rainforest at Dawn and Rainforest After Dark.

All the good stuff inside Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Body Oil

Rainforest at Dawn ($58) has a citrus scent with bergamot, lemon, woods, fresh florals, basil and eucalyptus.  The fresh, energizing scent makes this a great body oil to start the day.  I smooth it on after I shower, and I even run my hands through my wet hair for a subtle scent and to moisturize and eliminate fly-away hair.  This oil also makes a great treatment for dandruff and dry scalp.

Teadora Rainforest at Dusk Body Oil

Rainforest at Dusk ($58)  is more of a dusky, sensual floral scent with Rose Absolute and Geranium plus a hint of fruitiness.  I love this as a bath oil or as a massage oil…it is heavenly.

Teadora Nourishing Bath and Body Oils are 100% vegan with completely natural scents.  They are also free of parabens, synthetic fragrance, silicone, gluten, phthalate, sulfates and other harsh chemicals.  Teadora is a wonderful line with a great message that supports a fabulous cause.  It doesn’t get any better than this.  – Lisa
