Snails safe nail polish giveaway

Snails (safe nails) sent me a mini  framboise collection gift set for my honest review (and giveaway) .
I am always on the lookout for safe ways for my daughter to enjoy nail polish without the toxic ingredients. Snail polish is all natural, non toxic, and washes away with soap! The little matching bows were a great touch

While my 5 year old prefers something with staying power this is a great option for weekend or temporary wear. My daughter isn’t able to wear polish to school so this has been a great solution for her to put on at night and its gone by school time. She still feels pampered and yet I don’t have to use toxic polish removers to get this off by school. It’s a win/win. There are three simply ingredients in their polish: Water, acrylic polymer, and non toxic color. The colors are soft and not neon which I like. I believe in letting children be children and not contributing to societal views in having them, girls especially, grow up before their time.

They now have nail art pens!! What a great idea!  

Dibutyle Phythalate (DBP), Toluene and Formaldehyde dominate many children’s nail polishes currently on the market. I have learned from their site that these and similar chemicals are banned in Europe due to their links with cancer, birth defects and other illness.
From Snails website
“Since 2011 we have been helping children enjoy imaginative play minus harmful chemicals. With uniquely safe nail polishes that are:
100% European-made: our kids nail polish satisfies the strictest cosmetics laws in the world
Non-toxic: no chemical substances in our natural children’s nail polish
Completely water based: simply wash off with soap and water — no harsh nail polish remover required
Packaged lead-free: only pure Italian glass bottles — custom designed for kids — bear our nail polish
Stain free: forget colorful blemishes on clothes, carpet or floors. SNAILS Kids nail polish is entirely soluble”

Egyptian Magic skin cream review and giveaway

Egyptian magic sent me a product to review for my honest opinion.

I found this product to be a bit heavy but I I found if I let it melt in my hands (similar to coconut oil) it went on better. It would be nice if they had a slightly lighter version maybe with slightly whipped in texture. I do like to use this on my elbows, around my eyes, and my neck/chest. I am showing a little age there due to sun exposure. This product kept my skin soft all day long.

This product is made of Olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, and bee propolis. This product has wonderful healing properties for people with eczema and psoriasis. I have used it on a rash that kept appearing and it was gone within 2 days. Now I apply once a week and it has not been back since. LOVE! Egyptian magic is a solidified oil based product. You can take a small amount in your hands to soften it to an oil state and then apply. Check out their site for many uses!

There are people trying to counterfeit the product so that might just be a testimony on how good it really is it. 

You can see who endorses it in Ebony, InStyle, BE (France), Eurowoman, People StyleWatch, Rachel Zoe’s Blog, London’s Metro Newspaper, O magazine, Elle (Norway), US Weekly, Vanity Fair, Better Nutrition, People Magazine, InStyle, and Harpers Bazaar (Australia) to name a few.
Their website states “Egyptian Magic is an all-natural skin cream made from six of nature's most powerful moisturizing and healing ingredients. For more than 20 years we have been blending these ingredients using our unique, proprietary process based on a formula that was created thousands of years ago in the land of the Pharaohs. The result is a luxurious cream with moisturizing and nourishing properties that are legendary among celebrities, the fashion industry, even doctors and hospitals. With that support, Egyptian Magic has grown exclusively through word-of-mouth to be one of the most popular and widely endorsed skin creams in the world.”
