Now here is a real treat. After tackling several different products for TOS this year, mostly those of the curriculum nature-it was refreshing (or should I say Laveshing?) to receive a couple products to awaken the scenses and rejuvie this weary traveler. BeeYoutiful is not just your average company of health and beauty aids-it is a company that strives to provide products that help You to Bee the best you can be naturally. That ole saying, "An ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure" seems to be their motto-and a good one at that-especially with the impending health care overhaul looming overhead.
Given a wide choice of products, my daughters and I decided upon the following 2 skin care goodies to try out. Overall, our experience was a great one, and I am longingly looking through their catalog and considering future purchases. I see they have something called Berry Well [which in hindsight, I should have requested since my husband has been battling several intestinal assaults due to flying across the country a lot as of late, and being exposed to poor food handling practices in restaurants] and the Tummy Tuneup [which helps restore good gut balance of yeasts and also helps to maintain it/prevent irritation] which sounds rather nice, since a few of us recently underwent the dreaded antibiotic treatments for sinus infections. I do know a few of my TOS mates did try these out, so be sure to pop over to our TOS Review Crew homepage to find out what they had to say about them (I certainly will be too).
Now, without further ado-here is what we thought of these products:
$12 (4 oz container)
Usually, I need to avoid this type of product because I have very sensitive skin. Most things will irritate or actually cause rashes or break outs...so I tend to be very leery of testing out such things. I was pleasantly surprised by this Laveshmint Lotion though. It was a bit too much for daily use, but I found that I could tolerate and enjoy the benefits of it by simply using a couple times per week. The peppermint, lavender and aloe vera left my skin so smooth and refreshed, and very soft. My main reason for requesting this lotion was for my 15 year old daughter. Her face tends to have it's typical teenage issues, and lo and behold it has really helped to reduce flare ups. She has used not only on her face, but her arms (which tend to be dry and splotchy) too, which have become much smoother and softer. So all in all-we both found the Laveshmint Daily Moisturizing Lotion to be a nice addition to our facial/body care routine. If you like those scents and your skin can tolerate the oils in it-you should really enjoy this lotion. Better yet, when you team it up with the Toner-you glean the "total package" of softness!
$14 (4 oz spray bottle)
I fell in love with this toner almost immediately. Not only does it contain the lavender, peppermint and aloe vera like the moisturizer, but it is designed to balance the PH level of your skin too. I spritz it on every morning after my shower and it leaves my face feeling very soft (yes, I am repeating that word a lot but that is exactly how it feels) and refreshed. It helps my face not feel "tight" like it usually will after cleaning it, and the smell alone helps to start my day right. I see they also listed it for helping relieve tension-and since that seems to dance around our home a lot (due to the usual life situations-not necessarily bad tension-but perhaps more of a busy tension?) I think I should be squirting this stuff on pretty much all day long! This definitely gets an A+ from me (my daughter has only been able to sneak a few spritz in here and there-as I have claimed this entirely for myself) and again-I certainly feel comfy recommending it to those who enjoy the scents, and appreciate soft, toned skin.
So, now we are all "lavished up" and ready to face (yes I mean that pun) the world. My only complaint would be that they don't sell these in drum barrel sizes~surely some us would appreciate the option to purchase in bulk considering all the stressful situations out there, as of late. Oh well, maybe another spritz of the toner will help ebb the worries of the day for now....
