Disclosure: Mia Mariu provided me with a sample of Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser in exchange for a product review, However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Mia Mariu’s Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser Review #MiaMariu + Giveaway





Product Description for Mia Mariu’s Refreshing Foaming Cleanser 

 New and Improved anti-inflammatory formula with 8 natural botanicals!  Aloe, marigold, sea kelp, sea lettuce, plus nourishing essential oils: orange peel, lemon, lime and grapefruit are at the heart of this soft pampering cleanser.  This improved formula has increased levels of Aloe along with the addition of anti-inflammatory Sea Lettuce and essential oils making it an extra gentle cleanser.  Suitable for all skin types, non-irritating, paraben-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free.

It you are like me you want to take care of your skin and keep it the youngest looking and feeling that you possibly can. As I have gotten older I tend to be more more concerned about this. I want to put products on my skin that have wonderful and healthy ingredients included and not harmful chemicals.

 Recently I had the pleasure to try out a new product from Mia Mariu which is their Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser. I received a bottle of Mia Mariu's Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleaner which comes in a 4 fl. oz. size.



The first thing I noticed with this cleanser was the divine fragrance of it, which to me was a citrus scent. I really liked it a lot! Mia Mariu is especially effective for sensitive skin including rosacea, maturing and even dry skin types. Since I would say I have maturing skin I was pleased to try this product out.

I loved how the Mia Foaming Cleanser gently cleansed my face with it's silky foam. It left my face feeling soft and refreshed. Also it did not dry out my skin like some other products that I have used before. My skin felt nice and hydrated. 

The Mia Mariu's Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser sells for $21 and you can get it on their website. They have many other skin care and makeup products for you to choose from! Mia Mariu also offers entrepreneurial opportunities for you to sell their products and make money for yourself and family.

Thank you to the folks at Mia Mariu for allowing me to try out their delightful product!

Apothecary Extracts Australian Tea Tree Oil - Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. All opinions are my own and yours may differ.



Apothecary Extracts Australian Tea Tree Oil #teatreeoil - Review






I didn't know what Tea Tree Oil was before but I have learned quite a lot. Tea Tree Oil is extracted from the Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf. The Tea Tree is a small tree or shrub with needle like leaves. It can grow up to 7 meters (20 feet) in height and thrives in marshy areas, although it is now cultivated in plantations. The Tea Tree is very robust; it is ready for cutting only two years after its' previous harvest.

 The Austrailian Tea Tree Oil is a pure essential oil which is 100% undiluted and without impurities. There are no fillers, additives, bases or carriers added. I learned that all Tea Tree Oil is not equal. Many suppliers add other substances to their oil to cut costs, increase shelf life or enhance their aroma. The only way to know how pure your tea tree oil is to ask the supplier for a copy of their gas chromatography report and to compare it to the ISO standards found at http://www.teatree.org.au/standards.php.

I received a large 4 fluid ounce bottle of Apothecary Extracts Austrailian Tea Tree Oil which came in securely package and came in a brown glass bottle. The brown bottle keeps it from light and air exposure and keeps it as close to its natural state. It also comes with a free recipe guide that you can download that tells many uses and benefits of Tea Tree Oil.

I learned from the recipe guide to first test out to see if you are one of the small percentage who is allergic to tea tree oil before you use it. You can do that by rubbing some oil on a nickel size spot on your arm or leg. If you are one of the small percentages who have a negative reaction such as irritation you may want to try mixing it with coconut oil or almond oil to dilute.

It was interesting  to learn from the recipe guide that this Austrailian Tea Tree Oil has 53 uses! Wow! There are recipes from making shampoo to a foot scrub. You can also use it for making a soak for sore muscles, making a refreshing potpourri mix, cleaning, acne and so much more! In my opinion, I thought the Tea Tree Oil has a fresh and clean scent. My husband, on the other hand, didn't especially care for it.

I've used the Tea Tree Oil guide to make my own All Purpose Tea Tree Oil Cleaner and liked using an all natural product with no harmful chemicals! In the future I'm planning on trying the recipe for the laundry detergent.

If you are interested the Apothecary Extracts Austrailian Tea Tree Oil you can purchase it on Amazon right now for $19.99.

Toilet Tree Storage & Travel Case for the Face & Body Brush System - Review

Disclosure: I received complimentary product in exchange for a product review. All opinions are my own and yours may differ.


Toilet Tree Storage & Travel Case for the Face & Body Brush System - Review



Last winter I had the pleasure to try out the Toilet Tree Professional Skin Care System and I love it! (Here is my review of it if you would like to check it out). It really helps clean my facial skin from all the impurities and buildup of makeup, dirt, and dead skin cells. My face feels and looks so much better after using it and it's tons cheaper than going to a spa. On top of that, the attachment for a body exfoliator is great to get your skin stimulated and the pumice stone attachment sheds the dry skin on my dry and cracked heels.



I was thrilled when the folks from Toilet Tree asked me to review their Storage and Travel Case for the Face and Body Brush System. This is a wonderful case that conveniently stores your system. Since it is summer time and lots of people are vacationing, this case would be great for traveling. It's got all the tools you need and a place just for them.



The case includes 4 replacement heads including 1 Body Brush Head, 1 Soft Face Brush Head, 1 Medium Face Brush Head and 1 Pumice Stone Head. It has a place for your Face and Body Brush System also (not included with the case, I just put mine in the spot where it goes to show you below).



This case could also be used at home to store your whole system so you have everything in a nice neat place. It measures 8 inches by 6 inches by 2 inches. Also the Face Brush String hangs through the case for easy carrying, which is a nice convenience.

I'm so happy to have been able to get this awesome Toilet Tree Storage & Travel Case for my Face & Brush System! If you would like to get one for yourself just go to Amazon. It is selling as of this date for $17.95 (regular price is $21.95).
