She {hearts} Jenuinely Pure

 jp_emailsignature_heidi

After switching my family over to natural foods (from our overly processed diet) several years ago, my next priority was our healthy and beauty products.  To be honest, it’s hard to walk into a “big box” store and find body and skin care items that are safe and natural for the whole family!  I discovered Jenuinely Pure, a great company that produces handmade, all-natural, and organic skin care items for everyone in my family!

My daughters and I battle eczema, so we have to be very careful what we put on our skin.  Jenuinely Pure’s products are safe and affordable, with no “questionable” or GMO ingredients.  I was able to try out the Body Travel & Sample Set, which has a little bit of everything!  (It’s a great kit to buy if you’re new to Jenuinely Pure so you can learn what products you love the most!)  I can’t get over how awesome all of the products smell (all without artificial fragrances… just natural essential oils)!  The pink grapefruit bar soap is particularly invigorating, as is the lemon & grapefruit body wash.  The vanilla body cream smells like a dessert and leaves my skin feeling so soft (I think this might be my favorite item from the kit)!  The sugar & spice body scrub is also wonderful, fun to use, and leaves skin soft & smooth.  The coconut body oil is great for moisturizing your legs after a shave!

Jenuinely Pure also offers many other items as well, including natural face care products, natural products for your baby, and safe cleaners for your home.

She {hearts} Carmex Lotion

carmex-logoI know I’ve mentioned this before, but I have really dry hands, especially during the cooler months. This year has been especially bad, so I’m thankful I’ve had a great lotion from Carmex to keep my hands hydrated and soft!

I have used both the Carmex Healing Cream (with lanolin, among other ingredients) and the Carmex Hydrating Lotion (with aloe vera and Vitamin E).  Both of these lotions are thick but not greasy.  The Hydrating Lotion is especially great.  I like to put it on my hands before I go to bed so I wake up with softer, smoother hands!

She (still) {hearts} nourish organics

 

Just about a year ago, I reviewed Nourish Organics here on She {hearts} It and I love this company so much that I’m back at it again.  Nourish Organics is an organic skincare company owned and operated by sweet Olivia, who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for a few years now. Her passion for chemical-free, safe, 100% natural, nourishing skin care is so inspiring, especially to a momma of little ones.

As I’ve said before, I’ve tried just about every product in Nourish Organics‘ line and am hooked. My favorite products are the sweet orange sugar scrub (so moisturizing and smells delicious), the organic peppermint wash (so invigorating) and organic peppermint lip balm (I love the peppermint flavor and the non-waxy, moisturizing formula). I use the organic coconut balm to soothe my sensitive skinned-kids’ eczema and diaper rash.

 

I was elated when Olivia offered to let me try the new organic grapefruit wash. I am a sucker for anything citrusy, and the refreshing scent of this wash is delightful. Made with renewable, organic oils, the formula is super moisturizing and perfect for spring (who am I kidding, it’s perfect for all year long). This wash tops my list of favorite body products, and it is a daily treat to use it in the shower.

{heart} It

Check out Nourish Organics‘ line of super-moisturizing, organic, amazing-smelling washes, scrubs, balms, and oils.  This skin-loving line is all natural, providing peace of mind in the care of your skin, and your babies’ skin, too.

She {hearts} Rock Deodorant

 

rock logoOur family has been on an au naturel path.  The food we eat is additive, preservative, chemical free and we also eat as organic as we can. We grow much of our food, preserve it ourselves, cook from scratch, buy beef and pork from a farmer right around the corner from our house, and grow our own herbs.  While it may seem like a lot of work, I don’t feel like it is and the health benefits are amazing.

The next step is converting the things we use on our bodies.  I’ve been using Crystal Deodorant for years now. Phil and Zane have been using mine so I was a little giddy to find Rock for the boys!

We’re all very sensitive to overly perfume-y scents. Rock totally won us over. Colbalt Sky, Granite Rain, and Onyx Storm are manly yet not headache inducing.  (I stole the unscented for myself!)

One of Phil’s main concerns was weather or not it would hold up to his man-sweat-stink.  It does. He’s totally happy with it! It lasted 24 hours like advertised with no funky b.o.

WHAT’S IN IT?
ROCK takes a simple formula of purified water, natural mineral salts and natural fragrances from nature to block odor causing bacteria from formulating under arms and anywhere on the body.

ROCK is a natural deodorant that neutralizes body odor. Unlike leading deodorants and antiperspirants, ROCK takes ingredients from nature to prevent your body from emitting unwanted odor without the use of harmful synthetic chemicals.

WHERE CAN YOU USE IT?
Mainly used for underarms – ROCK can be used any where on the body, neck or chest and will not clog your pores. The easy to use pump-spray comes in ecofriendly, recyclable aluminum packaging – keeping your odorless adventures free from harming Mother Nature.

She {hearts} Baby Magic and Tree Hut’s Lavender and Chamomile

baby boom virtual shower

The Baby Magic brand has been around for a very long time… since the 1950’s. What I didn’t know is how gentle they are compared to other brands. Baby Magic doesn’t use 1,4-dioxane in their manufacturing process. Nor do their products contain parabens or DMDM. They are cruelty free, hypoallergenic and made in the U.S. It’s nice to know that I have another choice in baby bath products that I can grab at the local supermarket.

When I think bath time, I think calm and soothing. Lavender and Chamomile are two ingredients that support that. Baby Magic’s Lavender and Chamomile Calming Baby Bath and Calming Baby Lotion are perfect for nightly baths. The scents together are very tranquil and as Jayden would say, “licious”. The bath doesn’t create tons of bubbles, but that is not why we use it. The lotion is moisturizing… just right, not too watery, not too thick.

You know what else I didn’t know? That Baby Magic had a sister brand… Tree Hut. Tree Hut is a skin care and body care line that includes includes lotions, shower washes, body butters and sugar scrubs. Tree Hut products are made with 100% certified organic Shea butter and also include other natural extracts and oils. As a lover of shea butter, I was happy to receive products from Tree Hut. Sticking withe the Lavender and Chamomile, I chose the Body Butter and Shower Wash. Both products smell divine. The body butter is so creamy smooth. I keep it in my purse and use it when my feet look a little dry and when Jayden needs a moisture replenish. The shower wash is sadly all gone. I used it with the quickness. I love how fresh and clean it made me feel.

Baby Magic and Tree Hut products are affordable priced and can be found on Amazon and brick and motars such as Target, Walmart, and Kroger.

She {hearts} Earth Mama Angel Baby

baby boom virtual shower

There’s nothing like a little pampering to a pregnant mama. As beautiful and wonderful pregnancy can be, often a pregnant mama can physically feel anything but beautiful and wonderful. Stretch marks, dry skin, and morning sickness can take a toll on a pregnant mama’s changing body.

Being 22 weeks pregnant with my third baby (it’s a girl!), I can say that a little pampering goes a long way in how I’m feeling. Also, I am really concerned with what I put in/on my body, especially when I am pregnant. It’s scary to think how the chemicals and toxins that are in so many body products could possibly negatively affect my baby.

Enter Earth Mama Angel Baby. They use the highest-quality, certified-organic or organically grown herbs and oils for their products. Their products are free of toxins, cruelty-free, vegan, and contain no artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. They offer so many products to pamper and soothe a tired, uncomfortable pregnant mama!

Earth Mama Angel Baby sent me their “pocket full of pampering” set to try- the A Little Something For Mama-To-Be gift set. This set contains their Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash, Happy Mama Spray, Earth Mama Body Butter, Natural Stretch Oil, and Organic Morning Wellness Tea.

My favorites in this set are the Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash and the Earth Mama Body Butter. The Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash is self-foaming (that means no artificial foaming agents) and smells AMAZING with the help of fresh ginger (which can naturally ease morning sickness), organic lime and organic pink grapefruit essential oils. The Earth Mama Body Butter is a luxurious lotion that soothes dry skin and stretched bellies (and more!), thanks to organic borage oil and neroli pure essential oil with rich shea butter. For me, a bonus favorite is the Happy Mama Spray. My nose has been super, super sensitive this time around (I couldn’t even bear to open my fridge for months!), and this uplifting spray has brought me through plenty of queasy moments. It can be spritzed again and again for instant relief, thanks to lime and ginger pure essential oils. Bliss!

Earth Mama Angel Baby provides pure, safe, natural products not only for pregnancy, but also for postpartum, breastfeeding, baby, and even baby loss comfort. It is a company that truly cares for each facet of growing a miracle!
