    Arbonne Products: Pure, Safe, Beneficial

    Hakuna Matata

    It means no worries! And that’s just what Arbonne does. It gives you absolutely nothing to worry about! If you haven’t heard of Arbonne, you’ve been missing out. Arbonne is a toxin-free beauty and wellness company that has been around for forever.

    I was introduced to Arbonne by one of my besties (and my Matron of Honor!), Lydia, who became an Arbonne Consultant after falling in love with the company, its mission and its products.

    Where to Start?

    If you’ve ever been to an Arbonne party or if you’ve ever dug around on their website, you’ll know that there are a TON of products to choose from. From skincare to makeup, protein powders to supplements, mens products to baby products…your life can almost completely function on Arbonne!

    After attending my first Arbonne party, and then soon after hosting one for Lydia, I decided to try three products for Certifiably Obsessed:

    Arbonne RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Cream

    Arbonne Skincare

    Finding a good eye cream is TOUGH. I feel like it’s a product that absolutely everyone needs, but no one can find their perfect match…am I right?! Well, the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Cream might just be my perfect match. The key ingredients are worth every penny:

    • Sustainable orange stem cells: improves skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture!
    • Stabilized vitamin C: gives a youthful glow! (You know we’re all about our Vitamin C serums lately!)
    • Brown algae extract: moisturizes the skin’s outer layer…diminishing fine lines and wrinkles!
    • Peptides: enhance smoothness and skin tone!
    • Caffeine: reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles!
    • Olive squalane: contains omega-3 and -6 fatty acids that support moisturization!
    • Niacinamide: supports skin’s moisture barrier while brightening the skin!

    This cream goes on so lightly and can be worn both day and night. It’s totally nourishing and instantly depuffs and brightens…can’t beat that! Honestly, the greatest thing about it is that it’s effective and totally free from anything you don’t want to be putting on your face! I was SO sad when I ran out of this eye cream…I would totally buy more, but blogger duty calls! Onto the next eye cream.

    Arbonne RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum

    Arbonne Serum

    Okay, okay so between the two skincare products I tried, this one is my favorite! It’s an all around great serum! I like to think of it as a one-stop-shop when it comes to facial serums. Instead of buying multiple that have different uses, just go with the RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum and you’ll be good to go! The ingredients that make this oh-so-stellar are:

    • Sustainable orange stem cells: improves skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture!
    • Stabilized vitamin C: gives a youthful glow! (Gotta love that Vitamin C!)
    • Brown algae extract: moisturizes the skin’s outer layer…diminishing fine lines and wrinkles!
    • Sea buckthorn ceramide: rich in omega fatty acids…which hold in moisture!
    • Peptides: enhance smoothness and skin tone!
    • Alpha hydroxy acids: smooth and refine skin texture!
    • Niacinamide: supports skin’s moisture barrier while brightening the skin!
    • Beech tree bud extract: smooths texture with hydration!
    • Marine lavender extract: moisturizes to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles!

    After using this serum for about a month, I noticed a BIG difference in my overall brightness and texture. My face became much smoother and my skin tone really started to even out! Best part of it all? Again, it’s free of all those nasty ingredients!

    Arbonne Energy Fizz Sticks

    These little sticks are a total game changer if you lead a busy life…which we all do! With all I have going on lately…work, blog, wedding, life, etc., I need all the boosts of energy I can get! Instead of reaching for another coffee, sometimes I want something else and these fizz sticks do just the trick! These little packs contain 55 mg of naturally derived caffeine from green tea and guarana…yes please!

    The other key ingredients/benefits you should know about are:

    • Guarana supports energy
    • Chromium helps support healthy blood sugar levels
    • Taurine supports energy
    • Ginseng root supports physical capacity and performance
    • Coenzyme Q10, an antioxidant, helps support energy
    • Riboflavin helps metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins to provide energy
    • Niacin helps support energy-yielding metabolism of macronutrients

    My favorite thing about this is how easy it is to take them on-the-go! I always have one or two in my bag nowadays. All you have to do is mix it into 8 oz. of water and you’re on your way to sustainable energy without the crazy crash!

     

    Arbonne Fizz Sticks 1Arbonne Fizz Sticks 3Arbonne Fizz Sticks 4

    All in all, the best thing about Arbonne is that you can find just about anything you need with this company and trust that it’s 100% clean of anything you don’t want in your life! Not only that, but the company makes tons of efforts to be healthy for the earth as well.

    For being an all around safe, effective and overall perfect brand…Arbonne totally deserves my CO Stamp of Approval!

    If you haven’t hopped on the Arbonne train yet, I suggest you get started! I can’t wait to keep trying more and more…Lydia has loved almost everything she’s tried so far! Next on my list is the lip gloss. I tried it at the last party and LOVED it!

    100% Pure Vitamin C Serum: Natural Glow and Happy Wallets

    100% Pure Vitamin C Serum: Natural Glow and Happy Wallets

    Got Another Vitamin C Serum for Ya!

    As you guys know, Sam and I have been on the hunt for the PERFECT vitamin c serum for quite some time now. It’s a total must-have for a glowy complexion, but we’ve found that most are just outrageously priced…and our wallets were not having it!

    But I also noticed that the really cheap ones either made my skin congested and led to unnecessary breakouts, or just simply didn’t work. No glow, no go!

    Basically, the goal was to find a vitamin C serum that gave us that coveted healthy glow but didn’t break the bank. Let the scavenger hunt begin!

    Finding the Perfect Serum

    About a month ago, I went to my favorite local natural beauty store and saw that they had the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum for 50% off! So of course, I HAD to try it. (And it’s originally only $41 to behind with…jackpot!)

    Not to mention, the 100% Pure brand is known for making skincare and beauty products with all-natural ingredients. They don’t use water, synthetics, fillers or toxins. Sounds too good to be true right??

    Check out my experiment with the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum below!

    Product: 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum

    Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Organic Aloe Gel)*, Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate), Loofah Cylindrica (Vegetable Cellulose), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Xanthan Gum, Pyrus Malus Fruit (Green Apple) Extract, Vitis Vinifera Fruit (Grape) Extract, Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), Superoxide Dismutase (Antioxidant), Alpha Lipoic Acid, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax Seed) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Canadian Salix Alba Bark (Willow Bark) Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana Water (Witch Hazel), Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin * Certified Organic

    Price: $41

    Where to buy: 100% Pure website

    Time Used: 1 month

    Perks: Vegan | No Toxins | No Fillers | No Synthetics| No Water | All-Natural | Organic Ingredients | Cold Pressed | Budget Friendly

    How I Use the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum

    As soon as I got this bad boy home, I started applying it every night before bed.

    My routine for the past month went a little like this:

    1. Take off eye makeup with good ole TJ’s coconut oil…it’s magical!
    2. Wash my face with First Aid Cleanser
    3. Apply one or two pumps of 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum all over face
    4. Moisturize the heck out of my skin with the First Aid Ultra Repair Moisturizer
    5. Finish it off with a little Dr. Bronners lip balm

    The first time I used the serum, I noticed that it was MUCH lighter than any other serum I had tried before. The Sunday Riley C.E.O. Serum, for example, is super heavy and leaves you EXTRA glowy in the morning…sometime too glowy. It also felt like my skin was getting a little clogged up.

    The 100% Pure serum, on the other hand, was a lot easier on the skin. And it absorbs so quickly that I sometimes even like to use it in the morning. I could never do that with the Sunday Riley serum! I would look like an oily mess if I did lol

    The Texture

    If you’re wondering about the texture and feel of this vitamin c serum, basically picture the feeling of putting aloe on your face! Organic aloe gel is the first ingredient on the list…so no surprises there!

    It glides easily, feels really refreshing and absorbs very fast. The gel-like consistency makes it super easy to spread around. And a little goes a long way! On days where I feel extra dry, I apply two pumps. But generally, one pump is plenty!

    The Smell

    You know I’m all about the smells people! But guess what? This one has NO smell.

    Most vitamin C serums smell like citrus, which means they have added fragrances and perfumes in the formula. (Vitamin C shouldn’t have a citrus a scent!) The 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum, however, is committed to staying away from any ingredient that is chemically processed. So naturally, it has almost no scent.

    The Results

    What I love most about the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum is that it leaves my skin feeling really natural. Other serums I’ve tried in the past make me look soooo oily because the don’t absorb well. This one absorbs almost immediately yet still gives my skin a natural glow.

    After a month of using this serum every night, I’ve noticed that…

    • My skin looks brighter and more freshed
    • My makeup stays on better throughout the day
    • Breakouts are remain at bay and don’t ever really surface because my skin is so moisturized

    Is 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum Worth Buying?

    Abso-freakin-lutely! If you’re looking for a lightweight serum that will give you a healthy glow but won’t cost you an arm and a leg, then the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum is perfect for you.

    I honestly think it’s worth the $41. It’s really hard to find a formula with such high quality ingredients at this price! Usually, these serums are up in the $80+ range…so take advantage people! This one is a STEAL.

    And with that my friends, I give the 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum my official CO Stamp of Approval.

    5 Ways to Make Your Life Healthier

    5 Ways to Make Your Life Healthier

    Getting healthy doesn’t have to be difficult!

    I absolutely LOVE that being healthy is so trendy now a days. Not to say being healthy wasn’t important or talked about before, but it seems like everywhere you look now everyone’s talking about how to get healthy or make better choices. I love it!

    The one problem is that there’s SO much information that sometimes it can be hard to digest it all and turn it into something applicable for your life. Honestly, it can be overwhelming! If you start to really take a hard look at everything in your life, the list of ways to make it healthier can add up real fast.

    Cue: Certifiably Obsessed

    Good news is, we’re here to make it easier. After experimenting left and right, we’ve started to get a pretty good handle around the decisions in which we feel are important to a healthy lifestyle! So, we’ve gathered our top 5 ways to make your life healthier…and we hope you love them as much as we do!

     

    1. Refresh Your Workout Routine

    I would guess that a lot of people fail at sticking to a workout routine simply because they just end up bored! Even though I have my favorite way to workout (classes at my local studio, Nafas), I still like to switch things up every now and then just to keep things interesting! Sometimes I like to do Tone It Up videos in my living room, yoga in the backyard with Asana Rebel, or even quick Blogilates videos paired with a walk or jog.

    If you really want to mix things up, Claudia’s latest workout obsession is P.volve. Believe it or not, this program involves ZERO CARDIO! What?! How is it possible?! You’ll just have to read her full review to find out!

     

    2. Use Clean Beauty Products

    Cocokind SkincareOkay, let me preface this one with this can be totally daunting when you start to realize how many bad ingredients are in SO many of our normal beauty products! Sulfates, parabens, phthalates, etc., the list of toxins goes on and on! So before you start to dump your entire bathroom into the dumpster, start with the products you use the most!

    If you want to get to the bare bones, straight outta nature products, we would most definitely recommend Cocokind! Cocokind products are so simple and so clean…sometimes it’s hard to believe how well they work. (They also recently added a makeup line that we’ve been dying to try!) Honestly, we can’t just pick one brand when we have a list of very clean beauty products we’ve reviewed in the past:

     

    3. Eat a Balanced Diet

    Body Love FeatureSo I’m the queen of everything in moderation! I’m not going to stop myself from eating a cookie or that bread at dinner just because others do…I truly believe if you eat everything in moderation, everything will be just fine! Now, that’s just me, and everyone gets to say and do whatever works best for them!

    Claudia and I have found the principles that Kelly LeVeque outlines in her book, Body Love, make total sense when it comes to learning about and achieving that perfect balanced diet! If you haven’t read the book (or Claudia’s review), you totally should. Kelly makes it super easy to understand what our body’s need, why they need it, and how we should fuel it everyday! Not to mention, the Fab Four Smoothies are DELISH.

    4. Find A Clean Protein Powder

    Naked Pea Protein Vanilla PowderSpeaking of smoothies… You’ve picked up a healthier, more balanced eating routine, but you haven’t thought twice about those scoops of protein powder you’re throwing into the blender. (Or maybe you have!) Protein powders can be sneaky little devils…something seemingly so healthy and important can be chock full of ingredients you definitely never thought you wanted. SO frustrating!

    If you’ve experimented with protein powders in the past, you know it can be so hard to find one that tastes good and doesn’t turn everything it touches into chalk…am I right?! Thankfully, Claudia and I have found our one true love when it comes to protein powders…only three ingredients and tastes like a freakin’ dream. Say hello to Naked.

    5. Incorporate a Multivitamin or Supplement

    Ritual Vitamins ExperimentationI don’t know about you guys, but even on my healthiest of days I’m not sure I could ever get absolutely every nutrient I need via food everyday. Not to mention, my fridge would have to be jam packed! You know what, nix that. I’d have to just live in Whole Foods!

    Since I can’t live in Whole Foods (bummer, right?!), I’ve found the perfect way to supplement my eating is with a multivitamin and supplements. Honestly, it took awhile for me to jump on the vitamin/supplement wagon solely because I was convinced I could manage without them. After over a year of taking my women’s multivitamin, Ritual, I now know I can’t live without it! And Claudia and I both take different Hum supplements everyday that we also couldn’t do without!

    It’s Your Health Journey

    Just remember, everyone’s different and everyone needs to take their own path to making healthier choices. Even Claudia and I have taken (and still do) different paths to define our healthy lifestyles! We use different clean beauty products, different workout routines…heck, just about the only thing that’s absolutely the same for us right now on a regular basis is using Naked protein!

    So, maybe you just pick one thing to change or maybe you do it all! Or maybe you just decide none of this is for you. Ultimately, you do you girl!

    Maintaining your luscious locks can be anything but affordable. Correction: maintaining can usually be affordable, but looking your absolute best without breaking the bank? It can be seemingly impossible. But hey, that’s what we’re here for!

    From shampoos and conditioners to sprays and serums, it can be impossible to know what products you absolutely need and which you can do without. I’m someone who uses every product option possible, but I’m not someone that’s going to spend an arm and a leg to do it!

    Cleo & Coco: Charcoal Deodorant Giveaway!

    Cleo & Coco: Charcoal Deodorant Giveaway!

    A Delicious, New Charcoal Deodorant

    You might think we talk about aluminum-free deodorants all the time…and that’s because WE DO! We’re obsessed with trying to find the latest and greatest natural deodorants to ensure our little pits don’t absorb any unnecessary toxins. Because…gross.

    So when Cleo & Coco reached out to us to see if we would try their latest line of charcoal deodorants, we were like “Heck yeah!” Even though I was totally in love with my Primally Pure and Sam was super happy with Kai, we couldn’t resist the chance to try a new brand.

    Detoxing with Cleo & Coco Charcoal Deodorant

    Cleo & Coco was started by Suzannah Raff, a total #bossbabe, who wanted to create a natural deodorant brand that actually kept her odor free the ENTIRE day. And let me tell ya, that’s a tough challenge to take on. Most natural deodorants fail you at around 2-3pm.

    But she knew she could find the magical formula to not only keep you odor-free but to also detox your precious pits. And so, Cleo & Coco was born!

    Cleo & Coco uses activated charcoal to absorb odors, toxins, bacteria, oil, and water. It also supports your body’s daily natural detox process. In other words, this stuff works!

    Check out our experiments with Cleo & Coco below!

    Product:  Cleo & Coco Charcoal Deodorant (Grapefruit Bergamot & Lavender Vanilla)

    Grapefruit Bergamot Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal, Sodium Bicarbonate, Arrowroot, Orange, Grapefruit and Bergamot Oils.

    Lavender Vanilla Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal, Sodium Bicarbonate, Arrowroot Powder, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit, Lavender Oil, Orange Oil.

    Price: $18

    Where to buy: Cleo & Coco website or enter our GIVEAWAY on Instagram for a chance to win one for free!

    Time Used: 1 month

    Perks: Aluminum Free | No Preservatives | All Natural Ingredients | Parabens Free | Sulfite Free | Cruelty Free | Gluten Free | Woman Owned

    Cleo & Coco 1

    The Best Smelling Deodorant EVER

    Okay guys, you know I’m all about scents. And these deodorants smell AMAZING. The Cleo & Coco charcoal deodorant has essential oils that create the perfect blend of sweet and relaxing. Not to mention, these oils have healing properties that help keep the skin calm and protected.

    • The vanilla oil acts as a mild antidepressant and is also anti-inflammatory and contains antioxidant properties. Amazing right?!
    • The lavender oil is an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiseptic, antibacterial and antimicrobial. Talk about a powerhouse!
    • The orange oil is also antiseptic and antibacterial, meaning it helps clear away oils and toxins. And the scent is totally energizing!

    Lucky for us, Sam loves lavender and I love citrus. So we each got to experiment with our favorite scents!

    Let’s Talk Texture

    Sam and I both agree that this is our least favorite part of the Cleo & Coco charcoal deodorant. Unlike our Primally Pure and Kai, this one doesn’t glide as easily.

    However, we do have a few tips to help with that!

    1. Hold the deodorant under your armpit for a few seconds to warm it up and soften the texture.
    2. Apply to warm damp skin after you shower for best results.

    Once you get the hang of it, you’ll notice a nice layer of deodorant on your pretty little pits. It might be a little sticky at first, but it all absorbs quickly.

    Sooo, Does it Last?

    I think Suzannah achieved her goal! Whenever I wear this deodorant, I feel like I smell like a fresh grapefruit all day long. It did take about a week for my body to adjust though!

    I tested this sucker out during all my workouts and even on 90+ degree days, and it kept me pretty much odor-free. There was a bit more sweating than usual, but again, that’s because it takes some time for the body to adjust. Even though I was using a natural deodorant prior to this, different ingredients provide different results.

    I think the two things we love the most about this deodorant are the ingredients and the scent. The ingredients are just so simple and clean and don’t irritate our skin whatsoever. And don’t get us started on those scents!! So yummy and fresh! Just what you need in a deodorant, right?!

    Alright G I V E A W A Y time!!! Here’s what you need to do for a chance to win your very own Cleo & Coco charcoal deodorant.

    1. Follow us on Instagram (@certifiablyobsessed)
    2. Follow Cleo & Coco on Instagram (@cleoandcoconatural)
    3. Comment on our latest pic of Cleo & Coco and let us know why you want to try this deodorant
    4. Tag a natural deodorant-loving friend in the comments

    We are beyond excited to share this deodorant with you guys and definitely give it our CO Stamp of Approval!

    Foreo Luna Fofo: Step Up Your Cleansing Game

    Foreo Luna Fofo: Step Up Your Cleansing Game

    Must-Have Beauty Gadget

    Alright friends, it’s time to step up our facial cleansing game. You’ve got your favorite face washes, your favorite scrubs, your favorite masks…but what about your favorite cleansing gadget??

    When it comes to my skincare, I’m one for simplicity. Even though I loooove to try the latest and greatest trends, I tend to always fall back to my same old routine with my same old, #COapproved products. So I obviously never thought about trying a facial cleansing brush because I honestly never thought I needed one! (Not to mention, these little gadgets are not the most affordable…I’m talking to you, Clarisonic.)

    But when Sam told me about her experience with the Foreo Luna, I was veeeery intrigued. She said her face felt softer and smoother after every use!

    Lucky for me, FabFitFun came through to save the day…as per usual…and included the Foreo Luna Fofo in our summer box!

    Say Hello to my Little Friend…Foreo Luna Fofo

    The brand Foreo (a.k.a “For Every One”) wants to bring professional-level cleansing treatments to people like you and me! You know, the ones who don’t want to spend $150 on a facial cleansing brush.

    They’ve got an entire line of facial cleansing gadgets that are completely taking over the beauty industry. Some are a little pricer than others, but their latest (and our personal fav…the Fofo!) is a reasonably priced and comes with an app!

    Now, the app seemed enticing at first because it gives you an evaluation of your skin type with a personalized face washing routine that is guided by the vibrating sensations of the Fofo. But Sam and I both tried the app and agreed that it wasn’t all that fab…but the Fofo on its own is AMAZING!

    Check out a video of me using my new little beauty gadget friend below!

    Product: Fore Luna Fofo

    Price: $89

    Foreo Luna Fofo Review

    I’ve been using my Foreo Luna Fofo for about a month now and have to say…I’m in love!! My little Fofo is so useful and seriously does such a great job at removing all my makeup at the end of the night. I use it about 3 times a week with either my First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser or my Kate Somerville Scrub. And, no matter what, my face is so soft and bright afterwards! But what I love most is that it is still gentle enough on my skin that it doesn’t irritate it.

    Check out the video below to see how I use my Foreo Luna Fofo!

    Foreo Luna Fofo Cleansing Gadget Review

    Besides the fact the Foreo Luna Fofo is amazing at cleaning my face…my actual Aha! Moment happened when I realized I could use this little guy as a facial massager.

    Ummm yes friends. If you add a little pressure, you can use your Fofo to give yourself a nice massage and help to drain out your lymphatic system…without, again, having to pay hundreds for an actual facial massager! Anyone else with me?? Lol

    Sam and I both agree that the Fore Luna Fofo deserves our CO Stamp of Approval! It cleans, it massages and it doesn’t irritate our skin. That’s one powerful little beauty gadget if you ask me!

    This is what I do pretty much every day and I’ve gotten it down to an easy 10-minute routine. Check out the rundown below for the list of products I use! You’ll notice LOTS of #COApproved favs in there like First Aid Beauty and Glossier…duh.

    HUM Nutrition: Our New Favorite Supplements

    HUM Nutrition: Our New Favorite Supplements

    Humming From the Inside Out

    I think we can all agree that no matter how many eye creams or face serums or hair oils you use, true health and beauty starts from within. Everything from what you eat, to how much water you drink, to your quality of sleep, to the amount of sunlight you get…you name it…affects how glowy your skin is, how strong your hair feels, how stable (or unstable) your moods are and most importantly, how balanced your gut is.

    Fun Fact: Did you know that about 80% of your mental state, well-being, and happiness is controlled by your gut?

    That’s right friends! Taking care of our insides is the key to a happy and healthy outside. And that’s exactly what HUM Nutrition is all about! We heard about this magical company from some of our favorite podcasters and knew right away we had to give it a go.

    HUM Nutrition…Probiotics, Vitamins, Herbs and MORE!

    Warning: You will most definitely be tempted to buy all HUM Nutrition products as soon as you get on their website. I went on there looking for a probiotic and ended up with a probiotic and like five other products in my cart! Lol (and eventually in my pantry…hehe)

    The colors, the product names, the ingredients…#LOVE! Everything about HUM is just great and oh-so tempting! They offer everything from probiotics to hair and skin supplements to stress relieving herbs to weight-loss products. It’s like a one-stop-shop for all things beauty and health!

    With so many options to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to know exactly what you should spend your precious mulah on. But lucky for all of us, HUM offers a quick 3-minute quiz that helps their registered dietitians provide personalized recommendations for each and everyone of their customers. It’s amazing!

    So with all these fun supplements to choose from, Sam and I decided to each try a few different ones so we could give you a pretty good idea of which products are worth buying.

    Keep scrolling to check out our all-time HUM Nutrition favs! (And sorry in advance for the super long post! This one’s a good one though!)

    HUM Nutrition Supplements Review

    Happy Gut, Happy Life

    Like I said earlier, if your gut is in bad shape, you better believe your digestion, skin, mood and stress levels will be all out of whack too! And let me tell you, for the past six or seven years, my gut has been out of whack. (I’ll get more into why I think that is below!)

    So I was in desperate need of a good probiotic. I had been taking Pearls probiotics for YEARS! But I felt like they weren’t really doing too much to help with my digestive issues (and if you do your probiotic research, you’ll find that Pearls don’t stand high on the must-buy list.) After hearing about HUM for quite some time, I figured why not give their Gut Instinct probiotic a go?

    HUM Nutrition’s Gut Instinct:

    • Has 25 billion probiotic organisms…wowzaaa!
    • Is made up of a 10-strain combination of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium that helps to promote a healthy, happy gut.
    • Doesn’t have to be refrigerated (major plus for people like me who travel a lot!)
    • And only costs $25! Most probiotics of this quality cost at least $30 or more.

    My Experiment with Gut Instinct

    HUM Nutrition Gut Instinct Review

    I’ve been taking Gut Instinct for 3 months now and I absolutely LOVE it! I take one pill every morning on an empty stomach, and I honestly think it has regulated out my system sooo much. (a.k.a emergency trips to the bathroom have diminished…greatly lol.) And I feel like foods just sit better with me! FINALLY!! My skin is looking pretty glowy lately too…it’s a win, win, win!

    One thing to note: About a month or so after I started taking Gut Instinct, I stopped taking my birth control pills, which I think were one of the main culprits behind my annoying digestive issues the past six or seven years. UGH! I’ll save my post-birth control journey for another blog post, but I feel 100000x better!!*

    *Keep in mind, this is just my own personal experience so please consult with a doctor if you’re thinking about taking any of these supplements or stopping your birth control! K, thaaanks!

    If you’re looking for a probiotic, I highly recommend you give HUM’s Gut Instinct a try! It’s completely changed my digestion and that’s something I never thought I’d be able to say.

    Flatter Me Please!

    HUM Nutrition Flatter Me Review

    Alright, so even when your gut is totally humming and feeling mighty fine, your digestive system might need a little extra help when it comes to breaking down certain foods. And when I placed my first HUM order, I was experiencing terrible bloat. Like the kind where you wake up feeling like your belly weighs 100 pounds.

    I was eating all the right foods and drinking lots of water but for whatever reason, my stomach was not having it. So I decided to give HUM’s Flatter Me a try! This is their version of a digestive enzyme which is designed to optimize protein, carb, fiber and fats breakdown while also helping with nutrient absorption and providing relief from indigestion and bloating. I mean, does it really get it any better?? Not to mention, it’s made with all sorts of amazing ingredients!

    I started taking Flatter Me twice a day with lunch and dinner, since those are typically my larger meals. I also brought it with me on a several trips because restaurant food is typically KILLER on my stomach! And guess what?? It worked freaking wonders. Seriously, I felt like I could eat out without having to worry about running to a bathroom 5 minutes later. And the bloating definitely went down…not 100% but it got MUCH better.

    Definitely stocking up on this guy!!

    Take a Chill Pill Man

    HUM Nutrition Big Chill Review

    Not but really though! I think after Gut Instinct, Big Chill is my next favorite HUM product. This little magic pill is made of just ONE ingredient!

    Friends, let me introduce you to the beautiful herb, Rhodiola. This powerhouse adaptogen, found in the highest altitudes and coldest areas of Europe and Asia, is known to increase your body’s capacity to adapt to stressful situations.

    “Ommmmmmmm…”

    I started taking one Big Chill pill every morning after breakfast and I’ve found that it helps me keep a clear, level head throughout the entire day…no matter what life throws at me! With the wedding, the move to our new apartment, work AND the blog, I needed a little boost of energy and a way to keep my thoughts in order. And I can say with complete confidence that Big Chill has done all of this and more! I feel stable, focused and energized all. damn. day.

    Oh and as if that wasn’t enough, this supplement is only $15! THIS ONE’S A MUST PEOPLE!

    Moody Little Bird

    HUM Nutrition Moody Bird Review

    You’re probably thinking, “Okay, Claudia. You’re telling me all of these are a MUST! How is that possible??” Sorry guys, I’m just overly excited about all the results I’ve seen so far and I seriously think you guys might benefit from adding a little HUM into your lives 🙂

    Okay, but in all honesty, my birth control pills made me all sorts of moody for about two of the four weeks in a month. Like really? What a pain in the BUTT. So naturally, as soon as I saw that Moody Bird was going to be my “monthly ally versus PSM”, I was like heck yeaa!! Add to cart please.

    Funny thing is that since I stopped taking my birth control, my moods completely calmed down lol (Always go to the root of the problem peeps!) And my period was MIA for a few months so I didn’t need to take Moody Bird at all. But, my period finally came back this week!

    No mood swings this time around so I’ll have to keep you guys posted on this one…

    Red Carpet Ready

    HUM Nutrition Red Carpet Review

    Sam jumped on the HUM bandwagon as soon as she heard I was giving their supplements a try…because #twinsies. And it worked out perfectly because she purchased different products than me so we have MORE to talk about!

    She decided to give Red Carpet and Daily Cleanse a go, which are two of the most popular HUM products. And it turns out, she fell in love with one but not the other! Can you guess which one’s the winner??

    If you guessed Red Carpet, then you’re correct!! Sam takes this little beauty pill every day and has rarely missed a day since she got them…#dedication. They say Red Carpet leaves you with glowy skin and shiny, fuller hair in just 6 weeks. And, let me tell ya, after those 6 weeks, she could definitely see a difference in the health of her hair and skin. Her hair was actually growing so much faster that even her hairdresser was amazed…that’s when you know my friends!

    Even though Red Carpet won over Sam’s heart (and hair and skin!), the Daily Cleanse wasn’t exactly her fav. But it was hard for her to see the full results because she had to stop taking it when she got a weird skin virus (not caused by HUM!). She never picked it back up though because it did seem to cause more breakouts in general on her body. Can’t risk that with wedding events coming up this year!

    I mean, there’s like a zillion here right?? Healthier guts, less bloating, chill minds, glowy skin and longer hair…I don’t think it gets any better than that people! Not to mention, HUM offers a subscription service and they send you your favorite supplements on a monthly basis so you don’t even have to think about ordering your next bottle. It’s so easy!

    Even though Moody Bird and Daily Cleanse didn’t quite pass the test, we can for sure give Gut Instinct, Flatter Me, Big Chill and Red Carpet our CO Stamp of Approval!

    Sooo what are you waiting for?? Go take your HUM quiz to find out what you’ll be adding to your supplement regime! And don’t forget to use our code “123366” for $10 off 🙂

    Seasonal Beauty: Season-Sync Your Routine

    Seasonal Beauty: Season-Sync Your Routine

    Another Seasonal Rule?

    I know, I know…there can’t possibly be any more seasonal rules. I mean “only wear white after Labor Day” is more than enough right? Wrong! You can season-sync your diet, workouts, style…just about anything! For us, seasonal beauty is oh-so important!

    Born and raised in Michigan, I’m a true seasonal girl. I love my seasons. (Ask me again in the middle of February and I might have a different response!) Seasons keep things new and exciting for me! I love finally breaking out those sandals in May…and there’s really nothing better than cozy pjs during a white Christmas in December!

    Season-Sync Your Beauty Routine

    The truth is syncing your beauty routine with the seasons has SO many benefits. The varying seasons bring varying temperatures, humidity levels, etc. (I’m no meteorologist…lol) and with all those variables, your hair and skin can totally freak out if not treated the right way!

    For me, when it comes to season-syncing, the biggest thing is listening to my body. No, my skin doesn’t literally tell me what it needs (obvi), but I take note of minor changes in my skin and hair and if I don’t mix things up I can totally see the difference…whichever season it is! So, let’s get to it…season by season.

    seasonal beauty spring

    Spring Skin

    As the flowers start to bloom and life gets a little less gloomy, the thing I usually look forward to the most is breaking out my dresses! There’s nothing like letting those legs loose after a long winter. The only problem is a big problem…I’m usually pale as a ghost. So the first thing I turn to is sunless tanner! It’s a TOTAL lifesaver. For whole body, Claudia and I always turn to our favorite Vita Liberata products. For the face, my favorite is the Coola Sunless Tan Anti-Aging Face Serum. Both of those brands are mostly organic and so moisturizing, yet so effective!

    Vita Liberata Tanning Products

    Spring Hair

    Since springtime weather is forever unpredictable, we wake up never really knowing whether it’s going to be a good or a bad hair day! Oh, Michigan, we love you and your bipolar weather. We’ve learned when weather is unpredictable, it’s best to have a solid set of styling and maintenance products! When it comes to styling, we LOVE Virtue Labs. For those humid days, the Polish Un-Frizz Cream is trusty and reliable! In general, we always rely on the Virtue Finale Shaping Spray…no matter the weather!

    seasonal beauty summer

    Summer Skin

    When the temps and humidity start to jump out of control, my skin needs three things: less moisture, less makeup, and ALL the SPF. Lucky for us, there’s an all-in-one product that solves all three summertime needs for us! Say hello to the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer. This triple-threat product can be used alone as a moisturizer, makeup, and SPF…yep, summer skincare woes SOLVED.

    Summer Hair

    I don’t know about you guys, but my hair always needs some soothing in the summer. Between high humidity and varying temperatures, my hair is desperate to be smoothed out. For that, I turn to the OUAI Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner set. First of all, this stuff smells amazing!! Second, it just has a way of making my hair feel like I just stepped out of the salon. There’s nothing better!!

    OUAI feature

    seasonal beauty fall

    Fall Skin

    Since Fall in Michigan can be 80 degrees one day and 40 degrees the next, it’s good to have a set of emergency face masks to rely on depending on your needs that day. If you haven’t tried them already, you need to get yourself a set of I Dew Care Mini Masks. For just $20 you can get five masks (that last for 2-3 masks each) that are good for moisture, cleansing, detoxing, brightening, etc.! All of these masks serve a big purpose in a mini container and we’re totally in love!

    I Dew Care Mini Mask Review

    Fall Hair

    After a summer of sun, my hair is always in need of some R&R by the time the leaves start to fall. To treat my hair, but not weigh it down, I reach for my Virtue Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner set. This stuff smells delish and makes my hair angel soft! Plus, this shampoo has real human keratin in it (sounds gross, but it’s so good you guys!), which is so nurturing and helpful for my recovering locks!

    Virtue Labs Recovery Shampoo Review

    seasonal beauty winter

    Winter Skin

    When the air is dry and frigid, I reach for moisture in my skin routine in every way possible. I mean seriously, give me ALL the moisture. This isn’t always as easy as just upping your moisturizer or lotion game, though. So many of us often forget to change our cleanser too! That’s why Claudia and i recently started turning toward cream cleansers, more specifically the Grown Alchemist Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser. WIth squeaky clean ingredients, this stuff is nothing but nurturing for your skin!

    Winter Hair

    Just like my skin, in the winter you can catch me grabbing ALL the hair moisture products. For shampoo and conditioner, I usually stick to the Virtue Recovery Set (just like during Fall!). But when it comes to extreme moisture, I leave it to the dpHue Restoring Hair Masque. This mask keeps our hair having summertime moisture levels in the dead of winter!

    dpHUE Renew Hair Masque Test

    The lesson to be learned here? If you live in a place that has seasons, listen to your body and find what your skin and hair needs for each season! I promise you, if you make little changes here and there, you’ll gradually feel more balanced and refreshed with what each season brings!

    Do you have seasonal beauty routines?! What changes for you? Share below! We can always learn from each other!

    Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure: Say Goodbye to Wintery Feet

    Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure: Say Goodbye to Wintery Feet

    It’s Sandal Season…

    …are your feet ready? If you live in a winter-plagued climate, your poor feet have probably been in hibernation for about 9 months! And the thought of wearing sandals after boot-season might make you shudder. Calloused, dry feet anyone? Ugh, it’s the worst! But Sam and I were on a mission to quickly rejuvenate our feet and get them ready for the glorious, summer months ahead.

    Which is exactly why we reached out to our friends over at Patchology to see if we could try their Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure for our next CO Group Experiment. Because, let’s face it, most of our feet could use a little extra TLC!

    Lucky for us, Patchology agreed and sent over 15 sets of their PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure for all of us to try. So we shipped out the sets to our chosen #Certifiers and put them to werk! Meanwhile, Sam and I put these babies to the test as well. I wanted my feet to look perfect for my bachelorette trip to Turks and Caicos, and Sam wanted to get her feet in tip-top shape for her bridal shower!

    And so, the experimentations with the Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure began…

    Don’t miss the results below!

    How To Use the Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cure

    Sam and I must admit, we were a bit scared of using this product at first. (And some of our Certifiers were too!) We had never done any sort of foot mask before, but we had definitely heard of some horror stories about massive foot peeling and leaving trails of skin behind for days…gross right?!

    Either way, we set our fears aside and gave these Patchology foot peels a try! And we quickly found out that they are super easy to use…

    1. Soak your feet for 15 minutes (you can do this while you’re showering to make it easier!)
    2. Dry your feet and pour the Patchology Activating Essence into each booty
    3. Put your booties on girl
    4. Relax and watch some Netflix for an hour while your feetsies soak in the essence
    5. Rinse off well after 60 minutes

    That’s it! Now all you have to do is wait for the peeling magic to begin.

    Pretty Feet, Here We Come!

    How To Use Patchology PoshPeel Pedi Cure

    Alright, now onto the peeling process. On average, the peeling starts about 4 days after the treatment and can last for up to 7 days. For Sam and some of our other Certifiers, the peeling didn’t start until about day six! We both thought that something had gone wrong with the experiment, or she just didn’t have anything to peel off. She even tried soaking her feet again and using a pumice stone to encourage the peeling but NOTHING.

    Really, we just had to be patient! Lol

    The only big bummer for her was that between doing the mask and actually peeling, her feet felt super leathery and weird. But as soon as the peeling started, it was like a whole layer of skin was coming off! (I realize this post isn’t exactly the most pleasant, but us Certifiers have to do what we have to do…#sorrynotsorry)

    For me, the peeling started about 4 days after the treatment. I first noticed it in my heels, which are typically the driest part of my feet. Coincidentally, I had a pedicure scheduled when I was about two days into the peeling, which helped A TON! I felt really bad for the lady doing my feet (#actuallysorry) but she definitely helped expedite the peeling process.

    So in the end, both of our feet shed a nice layer of skin leaving smooth baby feet behind. However, I did notice that it does not remove big calluses! It just kind of rejuvenates your feet and makes them a little softer.  

    What Our Certifiers Thought

    Patchology PoshPeel Pedi Cure Review Sam

    Let me just start off by saying that our Certifiers for this experiment were absolutely AMAZING!! They gave us such great feedback, and I think you guys will love to hear how all of these experiments went. So let’s get into it!

    Q: Tell us about your experiment! How did it go?

    “It was definitely interesting to use, I’ve never used anything like it before. It took about 6 days for my feet to start peeling. Once my feet started to peel, my feet felt extremely soft and smooth. The peeling can look pretty gross looking but it works!”

    “It went well! It took the full 6/7 days for me to see results as far as the peeling process. So far, no pain, no itchiness. I am not done peeling yet so I can’t speak to how my skin feels overall, but the product is effective because it is helping me she’d my dry skin. The parts of the skin that remain after the peeling so far look a little smoother and take to lotion pretty well. It looks promising.”

    “My feet started feeling after about 5 days and continued up to now (day 10) in the last few tiny spots. It was most noticeable after a shower, so I had to take an extra minute to brush away flaked skin before wearing my cute heeled sandals to an event! The mask also totally dried the skin on my feet out after the first day, and they absorb even the thickest lotions now pretty fast. The skin is much softer but it absolutely craves moisture!”

    “I was apprehensive about trying the product but finally dedicated an hour on a Sunday to putting on the slippers. The process was easy and painless. It took 3 days to start the peeling process. Once the process started it was over really quickly. The shedding wasn’t painful and happened pretty quickly. However, I didn’t notice that big of a change in the texture of my feet.”

    Q: What did you like or not like about the experiment?

    “I liked that it wasn’t something I had to keep wearing or applying. It was a one time, 60-minute treatment and once I rinsed it off and soaked, I could go about my day without issue. I did feel that the solution was stinging on my ankles where I had shaved recently so just something I wish I had read up on!”

    “I didn’t like how long the peeling took to actually happen, it took about 5 days and I was going on vacation so I had peeling feet on vacation haha! Luckily the sand from the beach helped to get rid of the peeling (sorry beach goers) I loved that the process wasn’t too messy. It’s the first product I use that actually helps my calluses. They’re not gone, but it definitely helped!”

    “It was fun to put the socks on and feel like I’m at a spa, it did take my nail polish off but that’s my fault!”

    “I like the convenience of having an at-home spa kit for my feet. What I didn’t like was the burning/tingling sensation of the peel in the beginning. But I do have sensitive skin and this was using exfoliating acids.”

    “I didn’t really like how long the flakiness has lasted. It’s been almost a week, and my feet are still flaking a ton. I’d appreciate some more tips on how to help the exfoliation process along.”

    Q: Would you guys purchase these Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cures again?

    “As much as I liked the product, I don’t think I would realistically buy it again because of the convenience aspect (takes a while to work) and price.”

    “Yes! It’s simple to use, I am seeing results and want to see if my feet improve with each use!”

    “My feet are SO soft! And I did see an improvement on my calluses. I think that I keep doing treatments that I will actually see a significant improvement.”

    “No because I’d rather just get a pedicure and get the dead skin off that way.”

    “Not for a long time…but it did end up working. I would probably do it earlier in the spring next time so I won’t feel limited to not wear sandals.”

    So all in all, it looks like the majority of our Certifiers enjoyed the process (even though it took a little longer than expected) and are happy with the results. YAY!

    I think everyone’s aha moment began when their feet finally started to peel! We got tons of messages from our Certifiers letting us know that at first, they didn’t think the peel was working and then 4-7 days later, the magic began!

    But the ultimate aha moment is the super soft, baby feet these Patchology PoshPeel™ Pedi Cures leave behind. Some of you might experience more peeling than others, but either way, this PoshPeel Pedi Cure is a great way to get those feet summer and sandal-ready!

    Out of the 17 of us that experimented with the Patchology PoshPeel Pedi Cures, 15 of us gave it the official CO Stamp of Approval!

    This product is effective and does exactly what it’s meant to do! Even though not all of us will purchase it again, most of us were super happy with the end result. So good job Patchology team!
