Soap.Club Review by Simplysamples.blogspot.com

Who loves handmade natural artisan soap that smells great? ME!!!!

So, I received this product to sample and review. It's a subscription service for soap. Not just any soap though. These products are handmade and cold pressed. The scent lasts the entire time they do. I happened to choose Plumeria Island Escape to try out.

 They offer multiple subscription plans, too.

 This is the normal packaging you would receive on your soap, they call it "Pretty Packaging". Mine since it was a free sample came in black basic packaging that you can see in the video. I love the colorful packaging.

They offer free shipping when you purchase 3 or more too!

Below is my Youtube video review.

The ingredients and their benefits

• Vitamin C - for improving overall skin complexion and smoothness

My Opinion of the product: 
I have used it a few times, as I tend to have large pores and oily skin (not a good combination). It was one of the better smelling natural mud masks that I have used. It does shrink your pores and my skin feels tighten after using. Only drawback is that even with the aloe my skin dried out very quickly and was not smooth but dry and flaky.

My Opinion
This product is great for my health and my life. I'm a chronic stress case. Everything in my life puts me on edge. Yes, Xanax helps, but that is not what I prefer to fill my body with. I would rather eat dirt if it helped! This product is made with many natural products to reduce stress and increase serotonin production. Which is your natural happy juice. Since using the product I have been more at ease with things that happen which I can not control. Also, I feel more energetic due to the naturally supplied vitamins and minerals from this product, which my body loves! Great Product!

Glow2Go Self Tanning Towelettes Review

Super excited I found this product and got the chance to try it out. I received a box of 20 tanning towelettes, they retail for $16.99.

So, are they worth it? YES

It took me about 2 towelettes per application, I am 5'1" and about 110 lbs.

The tan lasted about a week with no re-application and 1 application was all I needed. (p.s. I'm a pasty workaholic who spends her free time entertaining her kids and writing this blog).

Here is me: Completely makeup free (OK, apparently whatever was left over that I didn't get off before bed) and tired!!! (before and after)

Reminder that this is 1 application.

Directions are:
Exfoliate your skin the day before you apply.
Unfold towelette and wipe over skin (be extremely cautious about putting too much on near elbows, knees, and ankles).
Wait ten minutes before putting clothing back on.
Wash hands immediately after applying.
Avoid contact with eye area.
You should see results in about 4 hours. 

I applied before bed and woke up TAN! My only issue with this product is that it wipes on clear. So I wasn't able to see where I had applied it. There were a few visible streaks the next morning but after a quick shower it was all blended. I also love the little dispenser box and that all towlettes are individually wrapped.

This product was given to me courtesy of Tomson.com however, all opinions on product are my own.

Review of Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C

This anti-aging moisturizer is made by HEALTHY DIRECTIONS,LLC. Normally I try not to write about products which can include parabens and other man-made ingredients, however, this moisturizer contains a huge amount of vitamins and natural oils.

So what is natural in this product?

What the product will do for you?
It can be used on the entire face and neck to reduce wrinkles, increase tightness of skin and decrease pore size. It hydrates and leaves your skin feeling nourished with vitamins and minerals and let's your complexion glow.

Pro's about this product:
Works- No, it really does. My skin felt lifted and tightened within 2 weeks. The product also smells great which is nice being that it's on my face.

Con's about the product:
Again, it is not all natural. Also, the price is a big deal breaker for future purchases even with the coupon they offer through email when you sign up.

Reader Discount: 20% Off
Reader Discount Code: SAVERETC

Note: Save 20% off your first purchase of Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C sold by Healthy Directions on Amazon.com. Promotion code expires 12/31/15

OZ NATURALS- Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant

Another company that is great for producing naturally made products is OZ NATURALS. The company is located in sunny West Palm Beach, Fl. Their goal is to make products so that everyone can have healthy skin naturally.

Why I love the brand:
  1.  An American company, not that I don't love other countries, but I love the fact that small businesses can profit here in America.
  2. Natural Products 
  3. Not tested on animals
  4. They make products in small batches, so at the most your product is 7 days old when you receive it.
  5. They have a complete line of skincare products 
  6. Works on all skin types, including sensitive
  7. They offer many coupons, discounts and free samples

Here are all the products they offer and coupon codes!!!

Now how about the Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant?

Great product. It is simple to use and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth. It's a very fine ground rice powder that is very gentle on the skin. I also love products that have bamboo in them, as it is great for skin appearance and tightening of pores (refer to KONJAC SPONGE post). The price was also great, you can really get your money's worth. I have used this product 2-3 times per week and I am pleased with the results. This is a great product and so is the entire skin care line offered by OZ NATURALS.
