Dr. Hana's Nasopure Nasal Wash System Review




I had something very similar to this in the past when I was younger I believe it was called the neddi pot or something like that. That was blue in color and it was solid in color. This Nasopure Nasal is really nice and basically I love it better it has a better angle and you can see the liquid in it so you know when it's getting close to the end. It comes with this salt mixture that is sure to fix your nasal passages and sinuses. 














Since 2001, we've been committed to keeping the world healthy one nose at a time. Through our comfortable, efficient design and carefully crafted salt mixture, our nasal wash systems have helped tens of thousands maintain nasal and sinus health naturally. 

Dr. Hana's Nasopure® Nasal Wash System allows for a neutral head and neck position while washing and easy control of pressure and solution flow.

Natra Care Makeup Wipes Review




I want to tell you about the natracare organic & natural makeup wipes these wipes are really nice and they are chemical free and are the first all natural and chemical free wipe to remove waterproof makeup. I used these and they do just that they remove so much makeup it's crazy. I wasn't sure about them at first but if you are looking for a natural makeup face wipe remover then this one is the one for you.




Strip down to your natural beauty with the world’s first COSMOS (Cosmetics Organic Standard) certified Organic Cleansing Make-Up Removal Wipe from Natracare, a leading brand in organic and natural personal healthcare. Natracare launches a new make-up removal wipe like no other – Organically formulated and free from harmful chemicals, they gently and effectively remove waterproof and regular make up, while moisturizing skin, leaving it clean and soft. A standard like no other, the COSMOS stamp of approval assures women that this product adheres to the highest organic standards.

Made from all natural ingredients, Natracare’s Organic Cleansing Make-Up Removal Wipes are free from formaldehyde releasing preservatives, synthetics, chemicals, parabens, and sulfates that are commonly found in conventional make-up removers.  Dermatologically and opthamalogically tested for all skin types, they are non-irritating and formulated for sensitive skin. Beyond their natural properties, they work two-fold; the wipes remove even the most stubborn make-up from face, eyes and lips without rubbing, as well as soothe the skin.

“Now women can get a hold of a fantastic make-up wipe that is completely different from anything else they have been using,” says Susie Hewson, Founder, Owner and Developer of Natracare.  “We are not just providing women with a make-up removing product that is easy and effective, but also the purist of its kind, removing any doubt in their minds about what they are using on their face.”

After 25 years of ensuring women’s feminine wellness, including organic feminine hygiene products and baby wipes, Natracare is excited to provide women with their most essential beauty product – a cleansing make-up removal wipe that is effective and healthier for their skin. Natracare spent two years formulating a unique product, free from all types of ingredients women have ever been concerned about putting on their skin.



“With the use of questionable synthetic chemicals, many leading make-up removers may lead to clogged pores, dry or greasy skin caused by chemical residuals and even damaged and irritated skin,” explains Susie Hewson. “But, unlike conventional make-up removers, Natracare’s high quality and organic credentials guarantee full traceability from the natural raw plant ingredients, through processing and into the pack, just as you would expect for certified organic food. This ensures that women have the most natural and best possible certified organic product to remove their makeup and cleanse their skin.”

I love any kind of cream that is going to help with scaring or stretch marks. Ive had two kids and I do have some stretch marks not a bunch but some now scarring is what I do have and that was left from the chicken pox that I had back when I was younger. This cream has helped with that now I haven't used this very long so can't say if it will be gone for good but it has helped.





Looking for a highly effective natural and organic solution for those pesky stretch marks and scars?

Body Merry’s Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream is just that - a natural and organic formula consisting of organic cocoa butter and shea butter, alongside lots of pure plant oils and vitamins. This cream provides intense moisturization and nourishes your skin to help visibly reduce the appearance of existing marks and scars, whatever be the cause. Not only that, it effectively prevents the formation of new ones.  Like all our products, it is free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

: New all-natural, restorative hair care product for review! Just featured on The Doctors and Extra!



BioMethod Launches Scientifically-Advanced, All-Natural Restorative Hair Care Line

A revolution is happening in how we understand and care for our hair. Based on 12 years of studying 

trichology, the science of hair and scalp biology, celebrity hairdresser Shann Christen understands that 

hair needs to be cared for as part of the living body and not treated as “dead”. This is why he created 

the scientifically-advanced, all-natural restorative hair care line BioMethod, which not only creates 

healthy and beautiful hair for all hair types, but can also restore hair for people who struggle with 

alopecia (thinning hair, balding, and hair loss).

Known as the “Hollywood Hair Doctor”, Shann was recently featured on an episode of Extra! and the 

popular TV show The Doctors where he corrects hair care fallacies and provides proper, safe, and 

effective hair care tips.

Understanding that the body puts the nutritional needs of the hair last, BioMethod puts the nutritional 

needs of the hair first and is formulated with hundreds of vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and natural 

“living” ingredients including fatty-acid extracts from coconut, natural complex sugars, vegetable 

lipoproteins, and soy proteins.

Unlike traditional hair treatments--which view hair as dead, treating it cosmetically with synthetic and 

artificial formulas to make it look healthy, BioMethod provides safe, all natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, 

non-allergenic, and cruelty free cleansers and treatments in three initial products.

Énergisant Pro is a cleansing treatment that focuses on the health care needs of the scalp. It is an 

anti-aging cleansing treatment formulated to create stronger hair for people who have experienced hair 

loss and seborrhea. This formula regulates sebaceous secretions, protects against the main causes of 

anomalous hair loss, improves the silicone levels of keratin, and fortifies and rebuilds the hair shaft.

Fortifiant + is a cleansing treatment that focuses on the nutritional needs of the hair. It fights against 

dehydration, increases keratin production, repairs dry brittle hair, and restores beautiful thick hair.

Minéralisante is an intensive trace-elements treatment for all hair types that hydrates, repairs, nourishes, 

and restores lifeless, brittle, and fine hair. Stored in individual ampoules to maintain freshness rather than 

with chemicals, Minéralisante gives deep hydration to the hair and scalp, restores the hair’s hydro saline 

balance and ability to retain moisture, and thickens hair. It can replace cosmetics gels, mousses and 

lotions.

Summing up his hair care philosophy, Christen says, “If you realize your hair is alive, and change 

the way you care for it by feeding it nutrients, you’ll get fuller, healthier looking hair and new hair 

growth.”

BioMethod’s Énergistant Pro, Fortifiant, and Minéralisante are available for purchase online at

www.biomethod.net with more products introduced in the coming months.

About Shann Christen

Shann Christen is a celebrity hair stylist in Beverly Hills, who after facing his own hair loss became 

frustrated with the endless onslaught of chemical solutions. He eventually had a meeting with a 

trichologist who solved his hair loss issues and inspired Christen to study Trichology for 12 years, 

graduating with a degree in Trichology in Italy. This education became the foundation of his treatment 

for hundreds of men and women suffering from alopecia, thinning hair, hair loss, and poor hair and scalp 

health and resulted in the development of BioMethod, his scientifically advanced hair care line based on 

the understanding that hair is alive and puts the nutrition of the hair first.

Easy@Home branded 100 Ovulation (LH) and 20 Pregnancy (HCG) Tests Review + Giveaway




I am really excited to tell you about the Easy Home Brand of Ovulation Strips and Home Pregnancy Tests. Me and my husband are trying for baby number three and were super excited when I had the chance to review this company. This box came with exactly what they said it will come with the 100 ovulation strips and the 20 pregnancy ones and for me I generally know exactly when I am ovulating so I didn't have to use that many strips to test. I did however have a miscarriage and it was suggested to wait three months before trying again. We have waited and so glad we did we don't want to go through something like that again. And I don't wish that on anyone.



About Easy@Home One Step HCG Pregnancy Test Strips: 

Detects the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin ("HCG"), which appears in urine very early in pregnancy. Regardless of the technical language, this test works just like most other pregnancy tests out there. It measures the levels of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in your urine. This hormone is produced by the cells of the embryo that will later form the placenta. The level of HCG starts to increase from its basal level of less than 5 mIU/mL directly after implantation, and doubles about each 48 hours during the first weeks of pregnancy. 

Features:
- All tests FDA approved and over 99.8% accuracy 
- Easy to use 
- Will work 5 days before your missed period 
- Earliest detection, greatest sensitivity level - 25 mIU/mL
About Easy@Home One Step LH Ovulation Test Strips: 

The LH (Luteinizing Hormone) which is in the urine of normal women will increase dramatically in the middle of the menstrual cycle. The LH increase triggers ovulation which is when the egg is released periodically from Normal fertile women. WHO experts state that LH testing is a reliable way to detect ovulation. Ovulation will occur after 24-48 hours following a positive test. One Step Ovulation Urine Test is a qualitative test used to predict when there is a LH surge, and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate. 




Features:

- Most reliable & reputable ovulation test on the market 
- All tests FDA approved and over 99.8% accuracy 
- Easy to use 
- Quick 5 minute results 
- Earliest detection, greatest sensitivity level - 25 mIU/mL
