#Body Merry Super C-22 Daily Toner ~ #Review

Body Merry is a brand of products that I've tried in the past and am always impressed with their quality. They also have great customer service, which is another big plus.

So when I was approached to try out the Body Merry Super C-22 Daily Toner, I was very excited. This toner comes in a brown glass bottle with 4 fluid ounces of product and comes with a screw top.

When I opened the bottle I had to take a "sniff" test and loved the light scent of citrus, which was very appealing but not overwhelming. The toner contains a large 22% of Vitamin C which is something you don't see with a lot of other skin care products. It also includes Witch Hazel and is free of alcohol, so there is no drying of your skin. Another effective ingredient is MSM, which helps to revive skin and texture. On top of that, it includes organic Aloe Vera which helps to soothe your skin.

Here are more of the ingredients you will find in the Body Merry Super C-33:

Grapefruit Seed, Rosemary Seed Extract, Camu Camu Berry, Tamanu Oil, Noni, Lemon Essential Oil, Green Tea, Chamomile Essential Oil, Arnica, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Propolis, Carrot Oil and Vitamin E - all add their goodness to ensure that your pores are no longer clogged and your skin's pH levels are balanced.

After cleansing my face, I apply the toner with a cotton ball and gently go over my face and neck. After applying I let it dry, then apply my usual moisturizer. I've been using it in the morning and evening. So far, it's been about a week now and I'm happy with how it's working for me. My face feels more thoroughly cleansed of all the makeup and impurities that you don't get by just cleansing. I haven't had any irritation and my skin feels tighter and looks a little brighter.

The Body Merry Super C-22 is great in that it's made in the USA and doesn't include any parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or artificial fragrances. You will also be happy to know that if you aren't 100% satisfied with their product, they have a 90 day manufacturer guarantee.

You can get it for yourself at the link on Amazon below:

Vitabath Orchid Intrigue Everyday Set (Lotion, Gelee, Pouf) Review + A GIVEAWAY!

Summer is quickly passing by and it seems like it just started! I've enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine and the long days with picnics, beaches, and family gatherings. It's starting to feel like Fall  here in Michigan. Some kids have already started school and are getting back to their hectic routine.

 After a long day I love to soak and indulge in a nice relaxing bath with some amazing smelling products from Vitabath. If you have never heard of Vitabath before, they have been in business for more than 55 years and offer wonderful skin cleansing and conditioning products. The Vitabath Fragrance Collection products are made of quality ingredients which nourish your skin with vitamins such as A, B3, B5, C and E. Additionally, they include an antioxidant superfruit blend.

Recently I had the pleasure to receive the Orchid Intrigue Everyday Set from Vitabath which includes a generous 10 oz. bottle of gelee, a 10 oz. bottle of lotion, plus a large fluffy pouf. I couldn't wait to try these but first opened the bottles to smell the alluring fragrance.

I could detect the sugared musk scent right away, which was really appealing to my olfactory senses. It is also intertwined with the alluring fragrances of amber velvet, amethyst orchid, and night blooming sambac jasmine. Believe me, it smells as good as it sounds,

Since I couldn't wait any longer, I decided to take a nice relaxing bath to sample my gelee, lotion, and puff. The gelee lathers up very nicely with rich thick suds that thoroughly cleanses my skin, without leaving it feeling dry. I loved using the pouf, which is so soft and gentle on my skin also. My skin felt  moisturized and fresh feeling afterwards. The wonderful fragrance permeated throughout the whole bathroom.

Afterwards, I applied the lotion which was just as great. It goes on smoothly and immediately made my skin feel softer and smell fabulous! It was like getting a spa-like treatment in my own home and made me feel so pampered indeed.

I enjoyed trying out the Vitabath Orchid Intrique Everyday Set. You can purchase it for only $19.95 at Vitabath. Besides having high quality products, they also have top-notch customer service.

Guess what! The generous folks from Vitabath want to give one lucky winner the same Orchid Intrigue Everyday Set that I have tried out! Just enter the form below for your chance to win. Ages 18 or older in the US only. All entries will be verified. Giveaway ends 9/19.

My Daughter's Claw Machine Stash

My daughter has a new hobbie.....or thing she does. One day she was looking in one of those claw machines you see in stores and saw some prizes she liked. They were monsters like Frankenstein's Bride, Frankenstein, Chuckie, Freddie Kreuger, and more. Well, Karissa (who is 26) got the idea to start trying her luck at the claw machine because she wants to get the whole collection.

She's only been trying her luck about 4 or 5 times and she's won some stuffed animals and even got some of the monsters that she wants to collect. Of course you can't win every time but she's off to a nice start.

When she won the Freddie Kreuger doll shown above a lady in the store said it reminded her of somebody she knew. Poor guy!
