Cellulite Defense Gel Cream and Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Cellulite Defense Gel Cream

I will be honest I was skeptical when I received this product. I have fair skin and it was very hard to try and capture my cellulite on camera. So when I got this Cellulite Defense Gel Cream in the mail I read how it contains all of these organic ingredients and how it is free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates. Come to find out all of the products from #BodyMerry are free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

I took a shower that night and applied it from my upper thighs to above my knees. The initial aroma that came out of this little tub was strong. The only way I can describe the smell is if you have trouble breathing out of your nose this product can double as sinus opener! I personally enjoy the smell. I just see it as a bonus!!
Its texture is quite weird. It is like a cream and a gel, but when applied it is absorbed quickly. While it is being absorbed it tends to have a weird feeling. The best way to describe it is the feeling when you brush your teeth and inhale and you get that cold feeling in your mouth. That's what it felt like on my legs. I applied it for two days and my entire thigh areas felt like that  until it was absorbed and the smell went away with it. The third to the 5th day I came to realize that the "cooling sensation" wasn't being felt on the front of my thighs like it was on the back of them. As the days went on the area of sensation got a little smaller and a little smaller. Til it was mainly felt only on the back of my thighs. I was curious to see if it would have the same effect on a part of my body without any cellulite and so applied it to my arm. The result is that I had no "cooling sensation" at all where I applied it. It almost makes me think that this is a targeted formula? I dunno but as you use #BodyMerry Cellulite Defense Gel Cream you will see and feel a difference. I do recommend this product.
Here is a link to the product on Amazon

Here is the product description:
Combat cellulite with our unique Caffeine + Retinol + Seaweed formula. This gel-cream has a strong caffeine content with the optimum level of retinol (0.4%), as recommended by experts. For good measure, we’ve also added potent natural and organic ingredients such as algae extract, kelp, coconut oil, japanese green tea leaf extract and cayenne. Like all our products, it is free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

The gel-cream consistency is designed to spread over large areas and it absorbs quickly into your skin. The cream is infused with a refreshing 100% natural ‘mint - green tea - lime’ fragrance, that barely leaves a trace once fully absorbed.

In a nutshell, Body Merry’s Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream is your ticket to visibly reducing the appearance of unwanted bumps and lumps and getting skin that feels and looks tighter, smoother and younger!
*BodyMerry has provided me with a sample of Cellulite Defense Gel Cream in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my  own.
Hyaluronic Acid Serum

I was a little confused about this Hyaluronic Acid Serum by #BodyMerry. It comes in a glass bottle with a glass dropper attached to the lid.  So I had a little trouble trying to figure out how much I needed to use at a time. When I first used it I was really surprised at how quickly it absorbed into my skin. I did get the hang of it by the 3rd or 4th time and had it down to a science. It is a very easy product to apply and it doesn't leave your skin oily. Once it absorbs in it feels so soft and supple, almost like a baby's skin.

It contains a lot of natural anti-aging ingredients like Vitamin C, Green Tea and Organin Jojoba oil. Nothing is better for your skin than organic. It's from nature for us. #BodyMerry just managed to get it all together and put it in one awesome little glass jar ready to be used. It has replaced my daily moisturizer from my routine, because the serum doesn't affect my makeup. It absorbs that quickly without the layer that is left after rubbing in many typical moisturizers. I do recommend this product. I do believe that this would help many people who need a moisturizer/ anti-aging serum who have the dry or combination skin.
To find it online here is the link to it on Amazon where you can see more reviews on this product.  Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Here is the product description:
  • DEWY RADIANCE: Nurture your skin with this superior hydrating serum and your skin will respond with an almost instant glow (minus the oily 'shine'). Made for those who are looking to rejuvenate their skin and give it a fresh start!
  • NOT JUST HYDRATION: This professional grade VEGAN hyaluronic acid serum not only moisturizes and nourishes your skin, but also provides superior anti-aging benefits by tackling wrinkles and fine lines head on. Body Merry's Hyaluronic Dew Serum is the perfect anti-aging moisture rich product - formulated for all skin types, free of any potential irritants.
  • NATURAL & ORGANIC: Plant derived Hyaluronic Acid is cushioned and supported by powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Green Tea and Organic Jojoba Oil, to give your skin a youthful, bright and even complexion. Free from harsh chemicals such as Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. No fragrances or alcohol.
  • MADE IN USA + CRUELTY FREE: The serum is made in the USA in an FDA registered and GMP compliant facility. It is not tested on animals.
  • MANUFACTURER GUARANTEE: Body Merry's products are backed with a 90 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don't like this serum, just contact us and get a full refund. You don't even need to return the bottle.

Poppy Austin Eye Cream

Poppy Austin Revitalizing Eye Cream

So I have had the privilege to try an amazing under eye cream by #PoppyAustin. When I received this item I was curious of its ingredients. Here they are straight off the bottle.
 I pulled some of the ingredients and did a little research on them and this is what I found.

Organic Babadensis Leaf (aloe vera)- Aloe Vera protects the skin from UV rays up to 30%
Aloe protects the skin from UV damage. The herb contains aloin, which can block up to 30 percent of the ultraviolet rays when applied to the skin’s surface. - See more at: http://rg-cell.com/aloe-barbadensis/#sthash.0nwJMFRd.dpuf

Jojoba Esters- A natural way to thicken the product without having to us wax
Grapeseed oil- Good for sensitive skin and skin that doesn't absorb well
Wildcrafted Camelia Sinensis (Green Tea)- Protects from the sun
Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra (licorice)- Can be used as an anti-inflammatory for skin conditions.
Evening Primrose Oil- Helps with aging, sagging, dry/rough skin, and skin discoloration
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (vitamin C)- Helps in anti-aging
Wildcrafted Euphrasia Officinalis (eyebright)- Not only good for the skin but great in general Read Here
Tamanu oil- Heals damaged skin. Its benefits are notable for the treatment for scarring, stretch marks, minor cuts and abrasions, rashes, sores and much more.
Wildcrafted Mahonia Aquifolium (Oregon Grape)- Antimicrobial but does help with skin problems like psoriasis.
Helichrysum Essential Oil- Helps with scars and helps to retain moisture and antimicrobial
Organic Rosehip seed oil-Helps with wrinkles and premature aging and dehydrated skin
Jojoba oil- Also makes a great scalp cleanser for the hair, and is equally wonderful for the skin because it has absorption properties that are similar to our skin’s own sebum.
Squalane- Increases skin's water retention
Palm oil- Used for anti aging
and many more!
This eye cream is very light and a little bit goes a long way. I only had to use an amount that was the size of a hole on a belt. Sometimes that was even too much! But no need to think you have wasted it... it can be used as an all over face moisturizer as well.

#PoppyAustin 's eye cream is very low in fragrance and is not irritating to the skin. I used it twice a day. Once in the morning and before I went to bed. It was very easy to add to my skin routine.
I personally can see a difference in my before and after pictures. I no longer have my dark circles. The puffiness around my eyes have drastically diminished. This product started working around the 1 1/2 to 2 week mark for myself. Either way I am so happy with the results.

 I am super happy with the results and I plan on continuing to use #PoppyAustin Revitalizing Eye Cream.
If you would like to try this product check it out on Amazon.com. I recommend it completely!!

Purex Power Shot Review and Giveaway!!!

Purex PowerShot is a concentrated detergent in a new easy-to-use bottle. It measures the perfect amount every load every time.

With this new bottled there's no measuring no pouring no "I just need a little extra because I think this load is a little bit dirtier". I have always fallen pray to the open lid that you poured your detergent into. You always think "well there's a couple articles of clothing I just need a little bit more" and then you end up using all of your detergent before you're 45 loads are up. This detergent smells amazing and you really only need the amount that is already portioned out for you. This is a money-saving bottle because you don't end up pouring a little extra in your loads. 
This is super simple to use:
1. Fill your washing machine

 These are my boys' clothes

2. Get your Purex PowerShot bottle and open it.

3. Tip upside down and pour it out

4. Tip right side up and close the lid now you're ready for your next load!!

This is super easy to use and I would recommend it to anybody who just wanted to get their laundry done little bit quicker was a little less headache.

A Little Behind.....

Ok so I have gotten a little behind.....it has been one stressful year but I do plan on picking back up!
So to get myself back on track I need to give a little shout out to a couple products that I received and tried but did not get to write my review on.

Cane Expressions
These are cute fabric covers that you can slip on to any cane just to give it a little bit of personality and if you are just one of those people who really like to match EVERYTHING than this is something for you!
Our fabric cane covers come in a variety of colors and designs.  They slip over the shaft of a cane with elastic holding the cover up.  The stretchy fabric makes it easy to use and fits most canes.  Machine wash and air dry

Soap Making Made Easy:learn how to make soap at home! Complete ebook guide

This is an ebook that is just as it states.... easy to learn how to make soap at home. Its great because it is an ebook and you don't have to worry about flipping pages while trying to make soap! These are step by step and even has pictures!!

 A friendly and stylish to-do app for iphone

When is its name  and it is pretty easy to use. I truly believe that I am personally not busy enough for this app but there are people out there that are constantly on the go. I would totally recommend this app for those whose on always on the go.

 "When" is a friendly and stylish task manager that looks like a clock.

A day is embodied in the clock and tasks are icons on the clock dial. You can create new tasks, change their time or delete them with a single touch.

Moreover, "When" groups your tasks under the place of action. Tasks created in the same location will have the same color. And unique icon will be assign to each task automatically.

The application officially supports Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish.

 Immortal Energy
This is not an instant energy enhancer!! It doesn't bring you up and make you crash later. This actually was a steady energy booster. I didn't feel the boost till around the 2nd week of taking it. If you are looking for that instant shot of energy don't try Immortal Energy. If you want a steady and more natural feeling way of getting energy then you might want to try it.

 FIRST:  If you want to review a product that is similar to the typical energy drinks or energy pills currently on the market, this is NOT the product for you.  This product will not give you the gittery/caffine/sugar rush that is often associated with these drinks and pills.

Trial sample of 12 pills (will last the typicall person 3-4 days)

Immortal Energy was designed for those that are needing that extra push for energy and clarity during their day, without having the side effects of the energy drinks and energy pills currently on the market.  It is best taken when you are starting to become fatigued or mentally drained and need that extra boost to push thru your day.

Immortal Energy assists with muscular strength and endurance, increases in concentration and memory, has anti-inflammatory properties, regulates metabolism, enhances the immune system and wards off infections by assisting the skin to eliminate toxins.

Formulated With Only the Finest Ingredients


Deer antler is widely used in Asia, and now throughout the world, to strengthen adrenal, reproductive and brain functions. It is mainly used as a rejuvenating agent. Short term use is believed to quickly build strength and power, while consistent long-term use is believed to re-build deep life force, preserve youthfulness and to enhance longevity.
Numerous studies done in China, Japan and Korea have shown that the pantocrine in deer antler increases work capacity, decreases muscular and mental fatigue, and improves sleep and appetite. Deer antler has been shown to increase the oxygen intake of the brain, liver and kidneys in laboratory animals. It also significantly increases red and white blood cell production in laboratory animals, with the effects improving as dosage is increased.
Deer antler extract provides minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients including the insulin-like growth factor IGF-1.
Clinical trials have shown that IGF-1 may:
Enhance immune functions
Increase muscular strength and endurance
Possess anti-inflammatory properties
Possess growth-stimulating properties
Help regulate low and high blood pressure
Help promote sounder, more refreshing sleep
Improve eyesight, including night vision
Help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides
IGF-1 is also an important supplement for people interested in reducing the signs of aging and for those people interested in living the longest, healthiest, and most active life possible.


For centuries people have used astragalus root to enhance strength and regulate metabolism. The herb has only recently gained popularity among herbalists and practitioners of alternative medicine in the West. Chinese medicine uses astragalus root to enhance the body’s energy, known as “qi”. Astragalus root is a mild diuretic, and it can help to reduce perspiration as well. In traditional Chinese Medicine, all of these uses are attributed to the ability of astragalus root to replenish “qi”, so a person who is ill can regain strength and immunity. Astragalus root is also been shown to protect the adrenal cortex, the gland that produces hormones related to stress. It may also help allergy sufferers by strengthening the immune system’s response to allergens in the environment.


Ginseng is used for improving thinking, concentration, memory, work efficiency, physical stamina, and athletic endurance which have a significant impact on our energy levels.
The nutritional and medicinal benefits of goji berries are legendary. Goji berries are very high in antioxidants and have great anti-inflammatory properties.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine goji is used as a blood and immune system tonic. It supports vision, is a mood elevator, and is known as “the happy fruit.” One of the most famous herbs in Asia to promote beautiful skin. It can improve memory, and increase libido.


Schizandra is known as the five-flavor fruit; it has each of the five flavors (sweet, spicy, sour, salty, and acidic).  It’s one of the most famous herbs used in Chinese medicine. This herb is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to sharpen concentration, improve memory, and increase alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, schizandra does not produce nervousness when increasing energy. In fact, some people consider schizandra mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and improved focus.

 Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by KissMe Organics
This is a green tea powder that you can add to anything....and I mean....ANYTHING!! Make your morning smoothie and a little green tea powder. Make some coffee at home....and some green tea powder. You can add it to breads, cakes, etc. It might give it a little bit of a green color but its healthy for you. I actually was able to add a little to dinner one night and no one knew it was in there. Add just a little or add a lot.




Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way.


Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expediture.


​Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.


Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.

This product smells good, feels good, and makes you look good. I didn't see any noticeable difference until around week 2-3. Just like anything in life good results take time, but the results do last. This product is pretty true to its word and I would recommend it.

Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash Review and Giveaway!!

Can I first just say that...this stuff smells amazing!!! I am one of those people that, I don't care how good it is for you, if it doesn't smell good I do not want it. When I got this in the mail you better believe that the first thing I did was open it up and smelled it....YUMMY!!
Ok, so with that being said, I put it in my kids bath tub. I told my 2 oldest boys (7 and 6) that they are to use this when they take their next shower and to tell me what they think of it. I chose to use it on them first because they are getting to the age already where they are starting to smell like.....boys. So, that night they took a shower and used it. When they got out and I already knew I liked it!! I smelled the soap and not them! :) **Happy Mommy**
They exclaimed how much they liked it! They liked the smell, they liked the color, and they liked how it made them feel more grown up (they were still using baby soap before this).Well it is still in their bathroom, but even though they think it is theirs, I totally use it when I take a bath. It makes my kids smell less like male kids and it draws in moisture to keep my skin hydrated.

This particular body wash I got is lotion infused and has vitamin B in it. Vitamin B is a natural humectant that helps draw in the moisture. This is great news to me since I unfortunately have eczema  and so does my oldest son. It seems like we use lotion a hundred times a day to help fight off our dry skin, but now that we are using a body wash made with vitamin B it doesn't seem like we apply lotion quite as much. I hope that with more time of using it we will only use our lotion less and less each day.

I really do like this product. If you would like to try it for free please enter into the giveaway below for a chance to win a coupon for a free product!
-2 coupons for free Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash
-1 coupon for free Dial for Men Power Scrub Body Wash

The first person drawn will get first pick at the Power Scrub or the Vitamin Boost.

Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze Review and Giveaway

I have always been a fan of Purex Crystals. I started out using Fresh Spring Waters (the blue) then to Lavender Blossom (the purple - love this one!), but since I have tried Fresh Mountain Breeze (green)  I believe I have found my new love!! I make my own laundry soap and it doesn't have a smell that would be left on my clothes. So when I started making my soap I had tried the Gain form of these. Well not only is Gain more expensive I found small particles (of their product ) in like the pockets and nooks  and crannys of things I was washing. So that is when I switched! I don't even have to use the whole amount indicated for the size of load that I wash to have them smelling like they have been sitting on the mountain side drying. I recommend these to anyone and everyone.

Here is the description from Walmart

Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze Laundry Enhancer is the more natural way to get laundry that stays fresh for weeks, not days. It's safe for all loads, including towels, activewear, and children's sleepwear.
Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze Laundry Enhancer:
  • Long-lasting freshness

Fels Naptha Review

This bar is an inexpensive way to remove stains in clothes. If you have the armpit stains or food fell on your shirt this product is simple to use!

     When I had my first son, I went all out and bought the expensive detergent and the expensive stain removers and all of the gadgets that went along with them. Now that I am now in the final weeks of baby #5 I am looking for inexpensive, quick and easy ways to get my kids' laundry clean.

I know that where I live I can buy this bar for right around $1 and it lasts for quite a while. I have also teamed up laundry detergent made with this bar to get those stains that i missed when pretreating their clothes.

Here is my own personal  recipe for my laundry soap. I have tweeked it to meet my households needs.

I personally make my own laundry soap and I have gotten 3 other family households using it as well. This recipe is really simple and is really only needed to be made about 1 time every 4-8 weeks,or longer, depending on how much laundry you do. There are soon to be 7 people in our household and I can go through the entire batch in about 4-6 weeks. I originally got my recipe for this laundry soap from the Duggars (19 kids and counting). The link to their recipe is HERE. I have since modified it to my household and you can do that to.
1- Fels Naptha
1- Cup of Borax
1- Cup of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (not baking soda!)
1- 5 Gallon Bucket and Lid
Hot Water

-Take the Fels Naptha and grate it (i use a cheese grater only used for the Fels Naptha).
-You will need to have a pot of water (about 3/4 filled with water) on the stove. I usually put the heat on around medium. You want the water to be hot but not boiling.
-Once it is grated slowly add it to the pot of water on the stove and stir frequently to constantly until all the soap is dissolved in the water.
-You can (while waiting for the soap to dissolve) fill your 5 Gallon bucket half way with HOT water ( I just use my tap water). Then add the 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of the Washing Soda. Stir till dissolved.
-When the soap is dissolved pour into the 5 gallon bucket (with the borax and washing soda already dissolved) and stir.
-Finish filling the bucket with hot water and stir.
-Put the lid on tightly and let it sit overnight.
This is your concentrate.

The next day you will open the bucket and it will be in a huge glob. It will need to be mixed again. If you have the paint mixing extension for a drill you can use that. I use my arm because I don't have one. Lol
When it is all mixed up and no longer in a blob, it is time to put in an old detergent bottle or reusable container. It is suppose to be 1/2 concentrate and 1/2 water.
I put a little more soap in my container because I have too many kids and my husband drives a semi. They are dirty!!

This recipe yields 10 gallons if you do 1/2 concentrate and 1/2 water.

To use in the washer this is what the Duggars recommend:
Top Load Machine- 5/8 Cup per load (Approx. 180 loads)
Front Load Machines- ¼ Cup per load (Approx. 640 loads)

If you make your own laundry soap what is your recipe? If you have never made it before and this is your first time, How did you like it?

*I was given a sample of Fels Naptha in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.*

Beltane: Ten Tales Of Witchcraft Ebook Review

This is a collection of 10 different stories all about Witchcraft. Each of these authors bring their own element to their story and make it their own. Some stories have a "I've heard something like this before" bit to it, but still have something that the author brings to the story that is different. Some of these are completely new and different and really intriguing to read. I don't recommend this for people who have issues with witchcraft or with anything pagan. I am Christian but I read this for entertainment only. I do not believe or promote witchcraft in anyway.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

TruMoo Review

YUM! Chocolate and WHAT???!!! Vanilla flavored milk? Oh heck yea! My kids always begged for chocolate milk and we only got it for special occasions. Now you can get vanilla!! It is so nice be able to change it up once in a while.

Now when you make milk shakes you can add vanilla or chocolate milk to give it a new twist.
Another awesome thing is putting the vanilla milk in your cereal.  Mmmmm......

I love to give my children their flavored milk for snack time. It gives them a little special feeling and keeps them looking forward to their snack. Its still good for them and I like to keep everything I give to them that way. Its a smooth texture and goes down A LOT easier than powdered or syrup flavoring. You can always guarantee that it will always taste the same when you get it already made!

Qoileez!! Review


When I first received these in the mail I was unsure of what to really do with them. I went to the Qoileez website to see what ways I could use these myself. They have so many cute ideas such as putting them on pencils and pens. Qoileez can be used in so many cute hairstyles or on your clothing to be used as accents. They come in so many different colors and patterns that you can add flair to any outfit, hairstyle, and your school or office supplies. I was even playing around one day and I had put one on the bridge between the lenses on my glasses. It reminded me of how people put the tape on the bridge. Lol

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
