Elemental Herbs - Helping My Lips Stay Beautiful! [Review + Giveaway]



I tend to get lazy about lip balm and forget to add this to my beauty bag. But recently I had an AWFUL experience with the EOS lip balm because my skin started to peel and it got weirdly sticky. I think it was just something in the EOS lip balm I was allergic too. So when that happened, I knew I had to find something different. I had the chance to try out lip balm by Elemental Herbs and I can't wait to tell you about it.

I tried out a five lip balms from them - 

Coconut Lip Balm 

Original Lip Balm (with SPF!) 

Spearmint Lip Balm 

Organic Original Lip Balm 

Tangerine Lip Balm

Honestly, I really liked all of them. I liked the Original Lip Balm with SPF, because it had SPF. I don't own a car and I am going to be out in the sun more when walking home. So, having a lip balm that has SPF is important to me. It's not super high (SPF 12) but it's not something I see too often with lip balms. So this was very awesome to me. I loved the Spearmint and Tangerine lip balm for during the day. The flavor was a nice little boost! I am a huge fan of organic and I am especially loving the coconut lip balm they offered. 

One thing I noticed about using it was that I just didn't have to use it a lot. I do wear makeup so I usually swipe some on before I put on lipstick. I immediately noticed how nice my lips responded to this lip balm. It wasn't something that I had to use too much of, I literally swiped some on about two or three times a day. My lips didn't peel at all. What a difference!

I also had the chance to try out some coconut oil by Elemental Herbs. I didn't get as much of a positive experience with the coconut oil. It didn't seem to blend into my skin as nicely as the one I do regularly use. But I know from my personal experience skin responds differently to coconut oil and so this is always something to consider.

I really liked they're pricing too. Each of the above lip balms run about $3.50 each. You might also spot these in stores too, so keep your eye out! Visit this link to find a store nearby. Also, be sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
