There are many potential benefits of CBD Infused Natural Skin Care, #BotaSkin breaks it down for us:

THE MANY POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF CBD INFUSED NATURAL SKINCARE

“Switching to plant-based skincare products can refresh your skincare routine. You may even find you need fewer products to achieve better results.

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, a non-intoxicating cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis. The natural benefits of hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) create an ideal pairing with a variety of botanicals to help you look and feel your best. All skin types can benefit from the calming and nourishing properties of CBD.”

The brand also breaks down a #DayTime and #NightTime Routine and I’m thinking to myself; yes, I need a little guidance in my life. Please, tell me what to use and when to use it.

Two MAJOR things I struggle with is Life Balance & PMS so when I came across Blush Wellness, I was so happy!

I decided to start using #Blush and another product called Livia, which is a product used to help with the pain associated with my period. Well, these two products have changed my life. Not only am I able to keep my PMS Symptoms at bay and my pain managed, but I am also no longer tied to my bed for days at a time.

Laurel Angelica Myers, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Prima.

Prima’s hemp CBD skincare products now officially EWG VERIFIED™ are The Afterglow, Enlightenment Serum, R&R Cream, Bath Gem and Night Magic. 

“In a new and unregulated industry, EWG’s mark is critical in helping vulnerable consumers easily identify products that are non-toxic and healthier. This validation and verification furthers Prima’s industry-defining commitment to clean, science-driven, credible and transparent business practices, setting the bar even higher for the CBD industry at large,” said Christopher Gavigan, Founder and CEO of Prima.

The five Prima CBD products marks a first for the EWG VERIFIED™ program, and an important milestone for EWG, Prima and the skincare industry as a whole,” said Ken Cook, President and Co-Founder of the Environmental Working Group.

The EWG VERIFIED™ mark ensures that the product avoids EWG’s chemicals of concern (ingredients with health, ecotoxicity and/or contamination concerns), provides full ingredient transparency and disclosure, and is manufactured according to good manufacturing practices. 

“The CBD industry needs regulations and standards to protect consumer health and safety, and EWG’s rigorous independent verification process sets the bar high for CBD brands and the industry at large to follow our lead. We’re proud to have EWG’s support as we deepen our industry-defining standards,” said Jessica Assaf, Co-Founder and Chief Education Officer of Prima.

Bamboo is not only the strongest, fastest-growing plant in the world. It has the highest concentration of plant-based silica on the planet, silica is an essential mineral that has incredible benefits for our beauty and our health. While it’s been compared to collagen, it’s actually a collagen booster.

Its beauty benefits include: 

  • Nourishment and revitalization to hair, skin, and nails
  • Reduction of hair shedding
  • Improved skin tone/texture

Consuming bamboo silica has other positive effects on your health that include:

  • Immune system enhancement

What’s one of the best ways to experience the power of bamboo silica? Add Beautifully Bamboo’s Beauty Tea to your teatime ritual and treat yourself to some beauty from within. 

Each caffeine-free tea bag has a wonderfully mild flavor that tastes great even without sugar. In addition to this plant-based silica, it’s rich in minerals and antioxidants. 

For the non-tea drinkers looking to support healthy hair, skin, and nails, the Silica Supplements are another top-selling favorite.

That Purple Shampoo From Target Tho

That Purple Shampoo From Target Tho…

Hello, my blondie’s, I’ve stumbled across the BEST Purple Shampoo from Target and it’s TO. DIE. FOR.  Let me cut to the chase, this purple shampoo and conditioner is absolutely amazing and available at Target. ( as if we didn’t have enough reason to go there.)

It’s L’Oreal Paris EverPure Brass Toning Purple Shampoo and if you think that name is extra you’re completely right. L’Oreal, really? Who comes up with these product names? Anyway, seriously, you must try it. It’s inexpensive, smells great, and truly removes brass tones. L’Oreal is also known for their EverPure Sulfate-Free Shampoo’s which are great for anyone who’s had a Keratin Treatment for the summer.

Just Because Products Are Cheap Does Not Mean They Aren’t Good.

There is a HUGE misconception about getting shampoo and skin care in a department store and I wish so much that people would just stop. I am a licensed New York State Cosmetologist and I can assure you, It’s okay to get shampoo from Target or other type department stores. I wouldn’t say they are all good, definitely do some research but honestly, the L’Oreal EverPure brand is a good one.

Miracle Oil Does Exist:

Okay, this last Target steal is Aussie Miracle Moist Intense Hydration Oil. I’m not sure if you can see but, I’m almost finished with the bottle and my hair has never felt better. I was a little skeptical about this because getting oils from a department store is kind of a hit or miss. Most of them contain alcohols and don’t penetrate the hair. Aussie’s Miracle Moist Oil on the other hand really penetrates the hair and makes a huge difference. I wouldn’t recommend this product for someone who has thin hair because it is a little thick but for someone with dry hair could really benefit from this!
