Rub-a-dub-dub, my skin is in love! For those looking for smooth, healthy skin (and who isn’t?), this rejuvenating natural exfoliant is the perfect place to start. Helping to gently slough off dead skin cells and remove excess oils and dirt particles, it will take your skin from nitty gritty to oh so pretty!


I LOVE this Nitty Gritty almond seed scrub from The Organic Skin Co! It’s such a gentle exfoliant for my sensitive skin. There are no icky plastic microbeads in this formula. Just a natural combination of organic ingredients like almond seed, licorice, rosemary and honeysuckle extracts

After the first use, my skin is smooth and glowing. I also love that the packaging is recyclable and the company will plant a tree for every product you purchase. Such a great way to take care of our skin and our planet.

Thank you The Organic Skin Co for giving me a chance to try this product!

Rembrandt 1 Week Whitening Kit Review

*A sample was provided in exchange for an honest review.*

Rembrandt, the iconic teeth whitening brand, has recently launched a 1 Week Whitening kit to brighten your smile with professional-level results in the comfort of home.

The kit retails for $24.99 and packs two weeks’ worth of powerful whitening into just seven days.

I was thrilled to try the kit out before my vacation. I didn’t have much time before my trip and the idea that I could improve my smile in just one week was very appealing.

Before trying the kit

The whitening strips were easy to apply and stayed put but I found them a bit thick and bulky. Compared to other strips I’ve tried, I noticed a difference with how they fit.

I have sensitive teeth and I was happy that the strips didn’t cause discomfort. I applied them daily for a week and noticed a brighter smile.

After one week of use

I recommend pairing the kit with Rembrandt’s whitening toothpaste to amplify the results.

If you are short on time, consider the 3 day REMBRANDT Whitening Boost Kit that retails for $6.99.

Rembrandt products are available in stores at Walmart and online at

Beetology Organic Cold-Pressed Beet Juice Review


*Samples were received in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this post.*

Beetologys new line of sweet, organic, cold-pressed juices are made from nothing but beets and a handful of other 100% natural, good-for-you ingredients like ginger, veggies, and fruit.

Every grab-and-go bottle of Beetology is 100% non-GMO, U.S.D.A. Certified Organic, and Certified Fair Trade. Each variety is non-soy, non-dairy, and certified kosher, with no preservatives, additives, artificial colors, or flavors.

Delicious, refreshing Beetology comes in five tantalizing blends:

Beet + Lemon + Ginger – A sweet and tart juice. Ginger and beets did not dominate the taste at all. I liked that there are only 4 ingredients, without any extras or preservatives.

Beet + Veggie – There’s a hint of green apple taste that brought out a bit of sweetness. The tiny particles of ground up veggies reinforced that I was consuming a healthy drink. It reminded me of a homemade juice or smoothie.

Beet + Tropical Fruit – If you love coconut, this is the juice for you! It tastes like the healthiest pina colada you can ever find. Be sure to shake it well and enjoy.

Beet + Berry – Simply yummy! This one was my favorite. It has such a refreshing taste. Definitely sweeter compared to the other varieties.

Beet + Cherry – I thought this one would be sugary and tart but that wasn’t the case. I would describe it as pleasantly sweet. My husband and I agreed that it tastes just like a cherry pie.

Find Beetology in the refrigerated section at health food, specialty, grocery, and kosher food markets.
