Dr. Woods Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter for Beautiful Skin

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.


I am a sucker for wanting to try new natural products, especially ones that I have never tried before. I have heard of the multiple uses for Black Soap, so I wanted to try it out myself. Dr. Woods Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter is ideal for skin care but can also be used as Shampoo and for general cleaning. Black soap can exfoliate dead skin cells and can help prevent premature facial lines and clear up blemishes.


Dr. Woods Shea Vision Pure Black Soap ~ Ideal for Skin Care



Dr. Woods Black Soap is made with organic Shea Butter which is a moisturizer that penetrates and revitalizes skin.  Shea Butter naturally contains vitamins A and E. These essential elements give skin improved elasticity and prevent dryness. I have been using this to wash my face for over a week and I love the results. I love the way it smells and a little goes a long way. It suds nicely and leaves my face feeling clean and fresh. I look forward to continuing to wash my face with this pure black soap.

Dr. Woods Shea Vision can be purchased  in three sizes: 8 oz., 16 oz. and 32 oz. and in 5 scents: Peppermint, Almond, Tea Tree, Lavender and Baby Mild.

Time to Upgrade to Polly Pocket ~ My Daughter’s Growing Up!

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion. 


My daughter just turned 4! She loves playing with her Little People doll house, but my husband and I figured it was time to move her up to an older toy. There are Polly Pocket toys at our church, so my daughter has played with those and enjoyed them. Needless to say, she was more than happy to push aside the Little People to play with Polly! When I opened the packages, my daughter instantly fell in love! Both of my kids played with Polly Pockets all day on the first and second day we had them. Now they are a part of their daily play! My daughter was given some money for her birthday and now she wants to go buy some Polly accessories or another doll so Polly can have a friend!


Polly Pocket ~ Perfect Toy to Spark Imaginative Play

This tree house is part of a wall series, so it is meant to be mounted on the wall.

Since we are moving in a few weeks, I figured I should wait to mount it in our new home.


I was sent the and the . Polly is a great doll for my daughter to play with because she inspires imaginative play. I can always hear my daughter making up stories and scenarios with her dolls and even though they sometimes sound bizarre, I am glad that she is having fun. These Polly Pocket playsets were easy to assemble and my kids take them all over the house.


Polly Pocket ~ Perfect Toy to Spark Imaginative Play

If you look closely, you can see Polly zip-lining down!

This is also made to hold water so Polly can zip line into the water!


If you are looking to upgrade to Polly Pocket, check out the links below where you can purchase them on Amazon’s Social Store. It’s that simple! My daughter would love the . It would be a great addition to the playsets she has.


Who would you buy a Polly Pocket for?

Natural Mineral Makeup for Full Coverage {Review}

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.

I use a moderate amount of makeup on a daily basis including powder foundation, blush and mascara. Sometimes I wear eyeshadow and on special occasions I put on eyeliner. I am not a big fan of liquid foundation; I prefer either pressed or loose powder. Advanced Mineral Makeup offers foundation in three forms including liquid, pressed powder and loose powder, along with other natural makeup products. Their makeup line has no dyes, perfumes or talc. The products are all paraben free and 100% vegan. Even better, this makeup has been used on the set of Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS because it’s so camera-friendly! It gives the skin a youthful look and works well with sensitive skin.

Advanced Mineral Makeup


One of the fun parts about picking out foundation through Advanced Mineral Makeup is that you get to match your skin to a Celebrity. Using their Shade Finder, you match your skin tone to celebrities including Taylor, Angelina, Eva and Halle. Once you pick the celebrity that best matches your skin tone, it lists the different foundations that would work with your skin. There are 4 different Pressed Powders, one for each celebrity, but for the Liquid Foundation, there are multiple options for each celebrity so that you can better identify your perfect match.


I was given the opportunity to try out their Pressed Powder Compact. My skin type matched Angelina, especially since it is summer and my face already has some coloring! This mineral foundation offers full coverage for most skin types as well SPF protection with its natural zinc and titanium dioxide ingredients. The pressed powder stays on all day and is transfer-proof. It will not settle into fine lines and wrinkles which can look tacky, but will smooth over your skin giving it a natural glow. This powder can be used as foundation and concealer, as well as a touch-up powder, all while providing natural SPF protection. If your skin isn’t perfect, this foundation may still work for you. It can cover acne, hyper pigmentation, and rosacea, all while repelling shine and hiding redness.


I really liked this compact because the foundation was light enough to be used as a touch up powder throughout the day, but gave me full coverage in the morning when I first did my makeup. I appreciate that it also provides a layer of SPF protection. I try to layer as many SPF products on my face everyday to protect my skin from the sun. The semi-matte finish also makes my skin look and feel smooth. This makeup is lightweight and I don’t feel like my face is being weighed down. I will probably keep this compact in my purse to do touch-ups throughout the day.


Natural Advanced Mineral Makeup for Youthful Looking Skin


Your skin will look naturally beautiful with this mineral makeup! The lightweight coverage will protect and give your skin a natural glow. You can buy the Pressed Powder Compact online for $38.50. Advanced Mineral Makeup also offers a variety of natural products on their site as well, including blush, eyeshadow, and makeup brushes.
