Novica: Artisan Holiday Gifts + Reader Giveaway

Sample Disclosure

novica

With the holidays approaching I have been scouring the Internet for gift ideas. As my girls get older and approaching the teenage years, it means I have to get more creative with my gift giving.  One daughter in particular, wants everything to be recycled or handmade.  The other daughter just prefers unique things, and not to be seen wearing the same earrings or clothes as her friends. It’s quite the list I need to come up with and how do I find a place where I can shop for both of them?  Thankfully I found Novica, an online resource that focuses not only on fair trade, but on handcrafted, unique items from all over the world. Best of all it has things that both of my daughters would love!

The first pair of earrings that caught my eye on the Novica site were these amazing hand crafted green beaded earrings.  Not only are the “Dzidzo” earrings handcrafted, and fair trade, they are GREEN, my daughter’s favorite color.

From the Novica website I was able to find gifts not only for both of my daughters, but for some hard to buy for friends as well.  We all know that as we age, our urge to simplify becomes stronger.  I try to respect that, and make careful, selective decisions when I buy gifts. I try to find things my friends will use often, and not just set on a shelf to collect dust. That means I focus a bit more on Jewelry and clothing.

Although my intent was to holiday shop, I saw this amazing scarf and decided it would be great for a friend’s birthday.  She needs something to brighten her day, plus the colors will go great with her dark hair.

Whoever you need to buy for on your holiday list, you’ll be sure to find something they’ll love at Novica!

Holiday Gift Guide: Le Mieux Skin Perfecter and TGF-B Booster + Giveaway!

Sample Disclosureunnamed (1)

Get the perks of professional facials at the convenience of home with the Skin Perfecter!  This year’s perfect beauty gift is a 4-in-1 At-Home Tool  that improves skin appearance, brightness, radiance, skin texture & smoothness.  Give the perks of professional facials at the convenience of home with the Skin Perfecter!

This non-invasive beauty tool combines four skin treatments into one tool to deep cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and infuse serums and other topical treatments for smoother, brighter, perfect-looking skin. It never requires any replacement brush, cartridge, or disc.

Professional-strength ultrasonic waves gently and visibly improve lines and wrinkles, pores, texture, clarity, and smoothness after every treatment. In clinical studies performed over a period of only two weeks, 100% of participants showed an immediate improvement in skin exfoliation, while 84% of participants saw improvement in overall skin appearance, 80% of participants saw immediate improvement in brightness, 69% of participants saw an immediate improvement in radiance, luminosity and healthier-looking skin, 65% of participants saw an improvement in the appearance of skin texture and smoothness, and 50% of participants saw an improvement in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

unnamed

Resonating at an amazing 28,000 vibrations per second, the Skin Perfecter gently glides over wet skin, producing ultrasonic waves that pulverize water, creating micronized particles that deep cleanse pores of excess oil and impurities, exfoliate cellular debris, extractimperfections, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and resurface lines and wrinkles. As an added benefit, its pulsating ultrasonic waves accelerate the absorption of serums and other skincare products, which is confirmed by the clinical study, producing far more effective results than massaging products into the skin by hand.

To perform effective deep cleansing, extraction and exfoliation, Luu recommends holding the unit with the tip of the spatula angled down. “Keep the skin wet, and always move the Skin Perfecter outward and upward,” she advises.  To infuse serums or skincare treatments, apply product to the face and neck. Hold the unit with the tip of the spatula flat against the skin. Gently glide the spatula outward and upward over the face and neck. After the treatment, turn off the unit, clean the spatula with an alcohol-saturated cotton pad, and store in a cool, dry place.

The Skin Perfecter features an easy-to-hold ergonomic design, 4 levels of intensity, a battery indicator that lights up when the device is charged, a rechargeable battery that allows more than 2 hours of operation, an automatic alarm and shut off after 10 minutes, and a DC power supply adapter. The device measures 6.85 x 2.05 x 0.75 inches (174 x 52 x 19mm) and weighs 3.88 ounces without the adapter (.11 kg).

Another great gift idea is the TGF-B Booster also from Le Mieux.  This silky, hydrating serum with 4 potent peptides, 5 revolutionary proteins, powerful antioxidants, and algae extracts  improves the appearance of facial contours, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restores a healthy glow. Boosts results when used with other skincare products. Features Superoxide Dismutase for extreme antioxidant benefits.

ScarAway Scar Repair Gel Review + Reader Giveaway

Sample DisclosureScarAway Scar Repair Gel sample

 

Many of us can find some sort of scar from a scrape, injury or mishap that has happened at one time or another.  It would be nice if we could get by without ever having injuries but usually at some point in life something is bound to happen… and leave a mark that we wish we didn’t have.

My husband has an adventurous story about when he raced my nephew up the ladder of a silo. He caught his arm on the metal ladder and it left a scar. Luckily there are amazing products like ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel that can help make scars so they are NOT the center of a conversation.

 

The first thing that we liked is that the Gel does not have a strong smell to it and is orderless.  We also liked that it does not have a color, ’cause who wants to look like they are covering up a scar and wearing makeup? More important is – who wants the Scar to be the first thing people notice?  If you have a scar and prefer it NOT to be the first impression people see for you, then try ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel.IMG_1257

ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel, featuring patented Kelo-cote® technology, carries the only patented, transparent, self-drying 100% silicone gel designed to improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation.

  • The elegant, transparent gel offers convenient application for custom scar prevention and treatment that can begin the moment a wound has healed or sutures are removed.
  • Results can be seen in as little as two to three weeks; full results may be seen in 60-90 for new scars and 90 days or more for older scars.
  • For the treatment and prevention of abnormal scars of various sizes and locations, including hypertrophic (red and raised) and keloid scars.
  • Effective on old and new scars.
