Skincare Products by Swell Skin

Don’t neglect your skincare routine during bath time so make sure you incorporate the Sea Buckthorn Berry, the nutrient dense ingredient in all of Swell Skin’s products. The oil derived from this miracle berry moisturizes with nutrients that leave skin vibrant, fortified and smooth to achieve the look of renewed & youthful skin.  

Author’s review: My name is Amanda, and I have problem skin. I get hormonal, cystic acne; I also can’t resist popping my pimples. This combination leaves me with red, angry skin. In the past I have tried expensive, chemical filled products to try to fix my issues… but they never worked. Ever. I have also filled acne cream prescriptions that dried my skin out and left my face feeling like leather. I have to be truly honest that I was skeptical of the Swell Skin skincare line, mostly because nothing has worked in the past. The bar leaves my skin feeling matte and clean- not overly dry, no residue left behind- more like a truly clean face.The toner is fresh scented leaves my face feeling night and tight. There are 2 serums that really hydrate the skin and make it feel super soft. The Sea buckhorn oil is my favorite of the face products- I use it overnight and it softens any acne scabs I have and I feel like this is the miracle product that has filled some of my fine lines. It plumps the skin and leaves it looking dewy and gorgeous. Swell Skin also has a decadent dry body oil that gave my dry summer skin some shine without having it feel greasy. I still have hormones, so I do still get some zits that pop up, but the overall health and condition of my skin has HUGELY improved. I absolutely will be using Swell Skin as my everyday skincare routine. It works.

Bath Bombs by Lifearound2angels

Transform your bath time experience with these luxurious bath bombs made from the freshest, non-toxic ingredients. There are a variety of bath bombs available that will either take you to a tropical island with scents of pineapple, grapefruit, and orange or to an enchanting garden with the aroma of fresh cut roses with notes of amber musk.

Author’s review: I love variety, so it’s awesome to try out different bath bomb scents depending on what I am in the mood for- something bright to wake me up or something floral to relax me. My kids were drawn to the colors, so they snuck a few bath bombs from my box… which I was okay with because the ingredients are non-toxic.

Starting at $3.99

Premium Coconut Oil Hair Care by NIUCOCO

Author’s Review: I always have an excuse as to why my hair is out of control- it’s summer and the heat makes it go wild, it’s rainy or it’s winter and the air is dry. NIUCOCO coconut oil shampoo and conditioner helped make my hair manageable and the hair serum left my hair incredibly soft. My hair smelled beachy and looked wonderful, too!
