We take multivitamins for body functions, but what about our skin? This natural Ultimate Jojoba (ho-ho-ba) is a multivitamin for the skin. It contains so many natural oils that do wonders for our skin from providing moisture and anti-aging properties.
This Ultimate Jojoba smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a pleasant linden blossom scent. With the added oils, you get Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6 and 9. The jojoba oil carries the vitamins and nutrients deep into your skin for a healthy glow and process. It leaves a small bit of oil after I put it on and within minutes it is absorbed. On some cases it is absorbed within seconds and there is no residue left. I apply a small amount at night after washing my face and in the morning before my makeup.
The Australians know a bit about sun-related aging in their climate and Jojoba is an Australian company. If uneven skin tone is not your issue, then see what other natural products Jojoba Company has to offer. See my recent review of Jojoba Pigmentation oil.
Only recently have I had a better interest in using oils both for skincare and around my home. I have oils I use when sick or my son has an upset stomach and oils that make my home smell good as well as oils that improve my skin. The skin care serums from Eden’s Semilla bring oils you apply to any affected area at a great price.
The 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil is cold pressed and unrefined. Jojoba is a great benefit all over the body from skin to hair. It helps to guard against skin irritation, inflammation, acne, dryness and chapped skin and I love how non-greasy it is and dries fast too. It really leaves your skin or hands and nails so soft. It smells fantastic too-like a citrus scent.
Eden’s Semilla Vitamin E oil is at a 35,000 IU strength and is made with added organic rosehip and jojoba oil blend (used as the carrier oil for the Vitamin E). It is all natural and 100% Extracted from plants. Vitamin E helps repair damaged skin, provides hydration for dry skin and provides relief for skin irritation and sunburn.
I have featured EverydayHappy products in the past and was excited to feature them again in this years holiday gift guide. From those posts you learned about the brand and how their bundle packages work. EverydayHappy has eco-friendly and safe baby and family care products and it can all be bundled so you save and have it delivered to your door!
Some of the newest editions are the nourishing Oatmeal Soap and Foaming Hand soap. The Oatmeal Soap bar includes oatmeal for soft skin and coconut oil for dry skin. Like all their products, the soap is natural and made without parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, heavy metals, dyes, and phosphates. It is organic and animal cruelty free. You can buy the bar at an individual price of $3.95 or bundle it with other EverydayHappy products and save.
Besides the bundle and save offers from EverydayHappy, my favorite thing abut the brand is the ingredients in their products. The foaming hand soap includes lily and mint extracts for a great scent and is nontoxic. It lathers very well and is made with sugar-based surfactants.
Have a family that could use some safe and natural clean for baby, family or home? Send them an EverydayHappy bundle. It will be the most useful gift to arrive at their door especially over the holidays. Have a student away at college-sending a bundle is an easy care package to gift.
Three Bridges is known for their pre-made, gourmet and refrigerated pastas and sauces. And now their newest addition is the refrigerated Mac & Cheese. It conveniently stores in the refrigerator and cooks up in minutes. You don’t even have to wait for pasta to boil. Then eat it as is or dress it up by adding meats or vegetables.
Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese Kit is made with natural, clean ingredients and nothing artificial whatsoever. No mystery cheese sauce or powder in this dish. Three Bridges uses rBST-free, fresh cheddar cheese and partially cooked elbow macaroni for pasta food that tastes great.
Cooking it takes about 3 simple minutes: simmer your favorite milk, add in the cheese and ready-cooked elbow macaroni, then stir, serve and enjoy.
Three Bridges pasta dishes are available at grocers near you. Visit the Three Bridges website to see all of the products.
Finally a safer way to clean. Actually, it just might be the safest of all. Force of Nature cleans using only salt, water and vinegar. When electrolyzed together it becomes more powerful than bleach. The reason we don’t use this safe clean in our homes is that not everyone has the ability to electrolyze ingredients in there homes. Force of Nature has found a way to bring this technology to us and now we can clean safely without the chemicals. Here is how it all works and why you need to clean this way….
How it works
This slim machine from Force of Nature electrolyzes water. It comes with pre-measured activator capsules of salt, water and vinegar. When you combine water, the capsule and electricity you get a safe, all-purpose cleaner and natural disinfectant. The low level of electricity changes the salt and water solutions composition.
When you add vinegar, the pH is regulated and you get 2 gentle yet powerful ingredients: sodium hydroxide and hypocholorous acid. There is a mild fresh scent that you get as well. I personally love scents in my cleaners but I don’t like the chemicals. I remedy that by burning my essential oil diffuser in my home while I clean with my Force of Nature.
Using Force of Nature kills 99.99% of germs including MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. You also won’t get antibiotic resistant bacteria left behind. There are no dangerous chemicals and eliminates germs, odors, mold, mildew, grease and grime. It also works on any surface.
It is also very cost effective. In the long run you will save about $70 just in the first year. Average safe-labeled cleaners cost .19-.36 cents an ounce and using Force of Nature will cost you .07 cents an ounce. The starter unit will cost you about $80-$90 and you get 5 activator capsules to start. When you make a full bottle solution it is good for 2 weeks. Refill capsules are well under $1 each. PLUS I was just at their website and had a pop up that said if you join there newsletter in that pop up you can get $30 off and free shipping. I’d hurry because I am not sure how long that lasts.
How am I using my Force of Nature?
I have been using my Force of Nature cleaner and disinfectant all over my home.

New just this month are the In a Cup Instant Meals from Revolution Foods. What makes these unique is they have kids in mind with the flavor choices and there is no water or heating involved. My son likes to take his lunches to school and I like to switch his lunch up so he will eat it. I remember getting lunches that seemed to be the same thing over and over and I would eat less simply because I was burnt out on some lunch foods. However, some days when I need to change his lunch a bit I may be in a hurry. How do you get creative in a rush?
In a cup has 3 flavors
Sesame Noodles: Just shake it to make it and eat!
Spaghetti Marinara: Can eat hot or cold. To eat cold, just shake it to make it and eat.
Thai-Style Satay Rice Noodles (gluten + peanut-free): Ready to eat. Shake it to make it.
By saying you shake it to make it requires opening the lid, opening and emptying all packets inside into the bowl, leave out the fork (of course) and replace the lids. Give it a good shake and it is ready to eat. I loved the sesame noodles-it had no spice to it so most kids should love the taste. It was like a cold noodle salad. My son went for the spaghetti marinara and I challenged him to eat cold as if he were at school where he can’t heat it up. See below as he can make this noodle cup by himself for school lunches.
All In a Cup noodle meals have real vegetables inside and 8 grams of whole grains. They do not contain any artificial colors or flavors. The In a Cup Noodles are gluten free and the Thai is peanut free. They are truly fresh and all natural and sure to be a hit at the lunch table. IN the video above I did not show my son his ahead of time nor did I tell him anything about the concept. I simply video taped his raw reaction to opening his lunchbox for such a meal option. As with all Revolution Foods products, one percent of retail sales will be donated back to schools through the company’s “Feeding Good Fund” which provides grants to schools who need equipment to serve freshly prepared meals to their students.
