Seventh Generation Healthy Baby Home Party!

It was an honor to host the Healthy Baby Home Party from Seventh Generation! Not only did I personally learn so much. I am glad to have ladies over for the conversation. It is no surprise that all of us believe in getting rid of all these chemicals being used in life, and in every thing!

An although that may take some time. It is wonderful to know California pass the “Your Right To Know Act”. Which makes companies in that state label the ingredients. More knowledge more power for the people.

We watched the amazing video “The Healthy Child Healthy World’s Wake Up Story” that shows you just what we are living in today. Do we really need to fertilize our lawns? No, it really is cosmetic only. An when my neighbor did it growing up. My brother always got sick and had to stay inside. Do companies need to create genetically modified food? Not for me! The fact there is a University trying to create a Cocoa tree by 2050 because, all cocoa trees won’t be able to stand the global warming. Is a sad realization. I don’t want any genetically modified chocolate…ever!

So in other aspects be thankful for Companies who are gearing their products to be sustainable and Natural. Seventh Generation makes Products without harmful chemicals and uses Natural Ingredients. We looked over their disinfectant spray that can even be used on baby items. Let it dry and it’s good to go. Made with so many Natural oils it is definitely the new product I was introduced to.

Since all of us are mom’s or were at one point. We discussed the diaper delima. I have used SG diapers and love them. For our girl it is no leaks and absorbable. So I was happy to introduce to a mom who just had a baby four months ago the diapers and she won the wipes during our fun Bingo game! It was also discussed how they had feminine products an made us love the Company more. It not only focused on task women in the home are usually doing. They have Products for the woman’s Lifestyle. Guess we appreciate that! We played games, and tried out the Plum organics on the babies (not pictured) but, oh they ate it all! An the morning bar is simply delicious and snack for anyone.

The laundry detergent is safe for baby and our clothes. So no need to buy two different products anymore. An the dish soap comes in soft scents and still so powerful. Plus, when the kids wash their hands it is a chemical free soap!

Had I not been a part of the Generation Good Community I too may have not seen the #ComeClean act passed in California. An able to learn so much and why other states should follow suit. I was more than happy to share the “Wake Up Story”. We all had an eye opening experience. That led to a powerful and moving conversation. It is safe to say most mom’s care much about the chemicals in Products and wish for them to cease. Especially when they can soak right into our skin. If your breast feeding, do you know how many chemicals can penetrate? Join the Community today and make sure to share the video.

An after everyone left we recycled the box for some coloring fun! I highly recommend Seventh Generation Products. They do live in my home daily. I enjoy buying Products from a company who is creating Products safe for my kids and the future world they have to live in. A company who seems to think about my needs. An finally, a company who cares about this Earth and willing to give back.

Check out Seventh Generation today to learn more. An better yet, go try a product today!

Maca Powder, High Altitude Secret!

Thanks to Peruvian Naturals they sent a 1lb bag complimentary to try and review. An I gotta say I am grateful for what I have learned. An happy to add another raw ingredient into my plant based diet. I am a lover of spices and root foods. So to have another powder is a wonderful discovery.

Above I added it to my regular powdered protein shake and it didn’t distort the flavor at all. An to me the Maca smells like black tea. Which I love an have no problem with. It is said if you use to much it does have a flavor a little too strong for most. But, a teaspoon in your shake, sprinkle on ice cream, or added to smoothie taste fine to me. An there are tons of recipies to google that look delicious!

Natives to such lands that the Maca root grows have said for many years it has many health benefits. From fertility to giving you more energy. Exactly why it would be a good addition to before or after a workout. It will had carbs, fiber, and protein. All which you need for energy.

The Peruvian Naturals comes from high altitudes in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The root has been used for at least 2,000 years. The Spaniards used it to feed their livestock to reproduce faster. It is said to help stamina. It has a huge history for a plant. An this product is Vegan, raw, and gluten free. Definitely worth researching for yourself and adding it to your lifestyle.

AMG Naturally..Age More Gracefully!

Age More Gracefully is Not only a skincare line that cares just about it’s Products using natural ingredients. But, actually cares about your health! This is a Brand we can back with love. I just had my second child when I received this and reading about how skincare Ingredients can transfer through breast milk and skin on skin was a real eye opener!

After trying AMG Naturally for over a month now. An learning more about the company. It is pushing the message that what you put on your skin does transfer into your body and then where else? I bet like myself you’ve never even thought to much about the subject of how our skin soaks in chemicals from everyday life. Pollutants and ingredients. If all your skincare has chemicals and science to help skin issues. What will that do in the long run to our inside body health. Only makes since we need to gear our lives around nature and it’s natural ingredients that won’t do damage anywhere else. In a recycling and giving back to earth kinda way too. What we use for ingredients must be replenished.

Check out AMG Website (click) to learn more and get your new, chemical free skincare line Today!

I have been using the Papaya Foam Cleanser and absolutely love how it last longer than creams, gels, or lotion types. It doesn’t dry out my skin or leave it irritated

An once a week my Rosehip exfoliator. It has the perfect mix of exfoliation and oil for Hydration. Does not leave face dry or sensitive. This has become my favorite exfoliator!

Lovin the Rosehip!

I have been taking Rosehip oil in my daily vitamins lately Thanks to another great company VitaminPacks (click on name to go to website) who is all about Natural and high quality Ingredients as well! I loved my Personalized Vitamins. Check out their system called Sage. Take the test, and get your daily Vitamin regimen today! Unlike other Vitamins these did not once make me feel gross. Some Vitamins have upset my stomach but, not VitaminPacks. Goes to show their great quality Ingredients.

This is what Bean Styled is all about. Sprouting Healthy LifeStyle’s from the inside-out. To find the most Natural-Organic brands and Products. Not only help our health but, Mother Nature too!

First up, let’s talk NAILS! Mess No More– TOO EXCITED to let everyone know that the best new product in Nail beauty is a silicon peel! Put it on around your nails before your paint. An any polish that would normally get on skin, you can just peel right off. If you love to try and get creative with nails, but hate the clean up.This solves the extra on the skin around the nails, but also allows us to be a little more creative and try new things! An speaking of new things, thanks to Instagram nail art videos we had to find us a stamping set and give it a go. Essence nail art Stampy set is not the easiest to do ,but with practice it does become easier and fun. Just google search nail stamp art, and check out all the videos of How-to’s to learn all the tricks. Once we get better at it, you can expect a Bean Styled YouTube video.

Influenster Voxbox

Influenster Sprout Vox Box we received had some great products, and these one’s we particular favored! One is the Vichy LiftActiv Serum sample and LiftActiv Supreme. It is a great moisturizer and after a week you can start to tell the fine lines are seeming to diminish. This line is new to us, but they have skincare to beauty products. Focused on aging and how to prevent deep wrinkles and other signs of aging. A brand worth looking into especially if your at the age of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a great product to start at the first sign.Β  Eatsmarts Three bean tortilla chips is also another product new to my family. Always looking for non-gmo and natural product and here is one! Taste great, awesome with any salsa or dip. We tried the Garlic and hummus and they were delicious! Another household product we feel lucky to have been given free sample of is Ecos Laundry detergent. It has come to the conclusion that half our skin problems in this home is due to chemicals we are putting in our fabric. That stops today! Ecos is a great laundry detergent with natural products. It smells great, left our clothes clean and looking more bright than our normal detergent and this is the absolute truth! We were shocked at how the laundry seemed cleaner. The finale product I enjoyed most in the sprout voxbox was the Orgain Organic Protein Powder, plant based, organic vegan, gluten free, soy free, and Non-Gmo! For a plant based product we have tried a handful and found this to need an award. Non gritty and it dissolves better than even some whey protein powders. So if your looking for a gluten free protein powder, or one that mixes well give Orgain a try. It was great tasting and smooth!

Garnier SkinActive Free Thanks to Crowdtap

Crowdtap has sent out 3 of the Garnier Clearly Brighter line products. An absolutely loving them! First up, the Anti-Puff eye roller with vitamin C, caffeine, antioxidants, plus mint. The ingredients used help cool and tight blood vessels. Plus, the roller ball helps lightly massage the area to help products soak in and release any build up of fluid in the periorbital edema. Secondly, I received the over-night leave on peel. As someone who likes to have a glycolic peel facial this is an extremely gentle version. Again, someone who has sensitive skin may always want to test this type of product on a small area first. But, I suffer from sensitive skin, but with all the skin allergies I am having this season unlike any before this product alone has been a skin saver! In one use you will notice brighter skin, and reduced pore size! Two of us participated in a beauty night and woke up very impressed by Garnier’s leave on -peel. It has vitamin C, Algae extract, Castor oil, plus AHA, Alpha Hydroxyl Acid-which helps exfoliate the skin by removing old dead skin cells. Research has show that AHA is one of the best penetrating products for skin that also helps with wrinkles and fine line. Finally, we received the Anti-sun Damage Daily Moisturizer, helps reduce dark spots and sun damage with the power of vitamin C, vitamin E, and LHA-Lipo Hydroxyl Acid, which is a light exfoliate but also a antimicrobial so it helps remove that gunk in your pores as well as an anti-inflammatory so will help rid acne. If your one that thinks you can’t use a moisturizer because you have oily skin, this would be a great one to try. An the bonus is that this moisturizer doubles as sun protection with spf30! No applying extra products to skin.

 

us-vsl-0p25oz-rosylips_tcm2858-777556Vaseline lip Therapy Rosey Lips– Here is another favorite we have been using for some time now. Vaseline lip therapy in Rosey Lips gives the perfect amount of pink color to lips and enough shine that is not sticky and soaks right into lips leaving them smooth&Β  subtle.

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

Maybelline Dream velvet soft matte hydrating foundation.Β  I never buy over the counter foundation. I am a little stuck up when it comes to department store foundations. They are filled with chemicals and tend to dry out my skin and make problems worse. So I have a few more expensive brands I purchase from specialty online stores.Β  However, for the $10 it cost this is a great foundation for normal to dry skin. A great coverage, yet does not feel heavy on the skin and is extremely smooth. A little bit really goes a long way.

Yes To Coconut & E.L.F. products

Yes to Coconut Hydrate and Restore Eczema relief Spray, can’t say enough about this spray moisturizer. Maybe most would just use it on the body, but we tested this on the face as well and will never be getting rid of it. A new must in the beauty arsenal, but this not only relieved the dryness, it cooled and calmed the irritated skin. It seemed to heal the skin in just 48 hours. If you are one that suffers eczema, dry skin of any kind, this product did more for healing and protecting better than any facial moisturizer I have ever used. I could replace my daily moisturizer with this Yes To Coconut’s product it’s that good! But, as a suffer of such dry skin, you can feel the relief immediately reliving itch and/or dryness. Some great ingredients are in this product more than coconut oil it also has honeysuckle, soybean oil, and Tamanu oil (also known as Beauty leaf oil) from the Tamanu Tree. It is made up of different fatty acids so it is not only a good exfoliator for sensitive skin it will help hydrate. Can’t say enough about this Yes to product except if you suffer from any amount of dry skin, please try this.

 

Eyes.Lips.Face E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator – This is one of the best lip exfoliates that has ever been tested at Bean Styled. It is cute that it looks like lipstick, but we would still use this even if it came in a bigger jar. Hint Hint E.L.F. However, using once a week it will last you a good 30 days! It has vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape, and Jojoba oil, and of course sugar. Plus for the $3 price it is more luxurious than most lip scrubs in department stores.

eyes lips face concealer and highlighter

Β E.L.F. Under eye concealer and Highlighter– This is not a new product on our summer beauty list. It is just a favorite that is perfect all year, but with the added highlighter the possibilities of nude no make up look or pair it with your other eye shadow products to create great looks that will last. This concealer is a great primer for eye makeup, takes away dark circles, and has a dual highlighter to create highlighting effects, it is a must have in our beauty bag always and can find at Target stores.

Que Bella Facial Mask

 

 

Finally, the last product is Que Bella. From their line of facial mask, to other skincare products. The price on shelves on all their products range from $1.99 to $3.99 at my local target. So if you don’t have the time or money to hit up the spa, these products work wonders for us diy at home ladies! This wonderful replenishing mask did the trick and if your waking up with those puffy eyes.

Que Bella Gel Eye Mask

 

They have amazing little eye hydrating patches you can wear while getting ready, chasing the kids, or if you have 30 minutes to lay down and relax, we would recommend that one! Wish we had a before and after pic, but since we don’t take our word they are worth it, Bean Approved!

Cheeky Tints

Hard Candy Cheeky Tints in Ballerina. Scared of gel blush? Yeah, we were intimidated too until hard candy cheeky tints was discovered. A really sheer pink blush that when put on can barley be seen. It is a light gel, an feels great when applying.Β  More of a pink highlighter. Yet, has great build able coverage you can create a pinker cheek if needed. This is the perfect Doll Cheek, or as they say maybe a Ballerina who has been dancing for an hour flushed look, a perfect pink! An since we do not buy anything from Wally World (a.k.a. walmart) due to personal reasons, not being friendly to small businesses, and having a lawsuit settled out of court by immediate family member this is about one of the only times we will tell you to purchase at HardCandy.com online rather than locally. (You won’t hear us say this too often as we are a small business Fitness Studio!) However having been gifted this product, an realizing their website is not the greatest, you can’t search for products, and we have not been able to find this product on their website.

 

With so many great new products you will be able to keep that skin glowing beautifully this summer and staying healthy with some of the newest food and home products. Be sure to sign up for our email so you don’t miss out on great reviews like this one. Plus follow us on all Social media to keep you beautifully healthy and looking your beast!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Collection- If you suffer from sensitive skin or dry skin during the winter months this is a must try. A complete set put together by the wonderful Body Shop store. The cleanser is almost like a cream yet cleans. Unlike most cream/lotion like cleanser we have tried either get to oily, or do not even clean off the makeup. This cleanser is nothing short of magic. Leaves skin soft and smooth never tight or dull.Β  The toner also has an Oil consistency, yet some how goes on like a regular liquid toner, cleanses and moisturizes at the same time.Β  The moisturizer cream soaks in great and leaves skin looking smooth and healthy.

illuMask Light Therapy

illuMask– Photo-therapy, Red light and Infra-red light 15 minutes Facial. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles, helps skin tone and texture to help firm skin elasticity. HOOKED! That is the only word to describe this new technological beauty treatment you can do from your very own home. After you was your face, (we found bedtime routine was best) lay down put on the mask with built-in glasses, hit your button and you are ready to go. Pre-set with 30 uses for $30 you do the math, it’s beyond worth trying for $1.00 a use. I have a week left and I am off to buy my second. My skin texture is the most improved. Nothing can really improve elasticity in skin as we age but this gadget just may help prevent wrinkles and fine lines better than some skin care products offered. NO the light will not harm your skin, it is led and light infra-red rays that are completely safe. We had no side effects or problems using the illumask. Can easily say this will be a regular in the beauty routine and love this beauty gadget!

VoxBox

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future-Β  Powered by ceramide; protective protein. It helps keep moisture in and toxins out. Before moisturizer apply to also help create a smooth, highlighted finish. This product we found to be a great primer for your makeup.

Softlips Cube 5-1 lip care non greasy or sticky. Does not dry out your lips with a great formula made from shea butter, antioxidant vitamins A,C, and E to help repair lips with spf 15 to protect from sun damage. Love the cute new packaging, it’s in the gym bag everywhere I go.

St.Ives

 

 

 

St. Ives Oatmeal Scrub and Mask- Some where along the shopping adventures in the beauty aisle at target I got a free sample of this new face wash/mask. It softens and hydrates skin with 100% natural oatmeal which is known to lock in moisture. Use it as a great mask or face scrub. Put the mask on a clean face, so if you have to wash a little with the scrub it ‘s fine. Then pat dry, apply a thin layer of the cleanser and let dry for 10-15 minutes then use warm water to remove, use toner and your ready to go. Absolutely loved this product. An easy at use too. Just mash-up 1/4 cup of oatmeal and a few tablespoons of water or milk and apply to face and let dry. Oatmeal is one of the best natural moisturizer’s.
