Today is EARTH DAY : an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.
We strive to do things daily in our home that are good for the Earth, we compost, hang our laundry to dry when the weather allows, recycle (on occasion) , cloth diaper (on the good days) and more. I know that one person can't change the world, but together we can make a difference.
Recently I was introduced to the company Paula's Choice. This is a corporation that is dedicated to being environmentally conscious. Whenever possible they use recycled and recyclable materials for their product packaging and shipping materials.
I was thrilled to have the chance to review some products from Paula's Choice. The first item I received was the Sunkissed Custom Color Bronzer, I really think every girl needs a little color to her cheeks , chin and forehead...blush doesn't work well for me but I LOVE a good bronzer. Really, there are good bronzers and there are one's you should simply stay away from.
The Sunkissed Bronzer by Paula's Choice is by far the best I have used! This offers the "glow" I want, without making me all shimmery. I love that I can blend the two colors to create the perfect shade for me. With a sticker price of just $16 I would definitely recommend adding this to your daily routine.
I also received the Brighten Up 2 minute-teeth whitener, I was super excited to try this product out! I am a lover of coffee...so my teeth aren't as white as they once were. I'm pretty blessed not to have bad teeth, but they could be better too ;-) This teeth whitener comes in a tube, just like a lip gloss would be found in.
First, I have to say I do think this product works! I have been using it semi regularly (I keep it in my purse so I use it more when I am out) for about 2 weeks and I think my teeth are a little whiter. For me the best part of this though is the minty smell, after a coffee it really freshens up my breath! The downside to this product is the stick actually fell out of the tube after just a few uses, so I have to be careful and just dab my finger on it to use. SO, I love the product I just wish there was better packaging.
Lastly, I received the Earth Sourced Kit. This retails for $61 and includes the Earth Sourced Cleanser, Earth Sourced Toner & Earth Sourced Moisturizer. If you have been following long , you might know that I make my own face cleanser; however I have skin that quickly adapts to the products I use and I need an occasional switch up. The Earth Sourced Cleanser is just what I needed.
I have been using the Earth Sourced system for a couple of weeks now and my skin looks and feels great! I also love that these products are gentle enough to use on babies. Sweet Pea occasionally climbs in the shower with me and I always think I'd love to just wash her off while she is in there, but the baby products are in the other bathroom. A few days after I received the Earth Sourced products, Sweet Pea climbed in and I used the cleanser on her body and even her hair. It worked wonderfully & she smelled great.
