Eco Lips Review & Giveaway!

About Eco Lips

The Story: It all started with Andrea Danielson, who would make natural lip balms in her kitchen. She passed one along to Steve Shriver (who would later become her hubby, cute) and they ended up developing Eco Lips. 

The Products: Eco Lips contains organic products such as: organic beeswax, organic plant oils and organic essential oils. It is handcrafted at low temperatures to keep nutrients from deteriorating. They pledge 1% of profits to environmentally focused organizations. 

The Packaging: The Eco Lips lip containers are 40% recycled. The Eco Clips to hold the Eco Lips are also recycled aluminum. They also use 100% post-consumer recycled displays and biodegradable packaging peanuts. 

My Eco Lips Review
[I received 4 Eco Lips balms for review and I'm going to share my thoughts about each of them individually]

Eco Lips Gold
Order it here!

Look & Feel: The texture is a little creamier and thicker so it would be nice to use if you have chapped or damaged lips since it will give them more protection from the elements. It'd be perfect for those that live in climates that get below-zero weather like here in Minnesota!

Scent: It is unscented and unflavored which was a little disappointing to me but would be good for someone that was sensitive to smells. It'd also be good for men that shy away from lip balms because of a 'girly' scent. 

Benefits: It is USDA certified organic and is made with organic jojoba oil. If you're trying to be more 'green' then this is a good product for you. For the review, I also received mine with an Eco Clip which you can clip to your purse to easily find it. 

Eco Tints Sugar Plum
Order it here!

Look & Feel: This one feels nice but has a little grit to it because of the shimmer in it. Its not rough though, and it feels like a mix between lipsticks and lip balm. Its a tint so it adds color to your lips in a nice subtle look. 

Scent: I picked sugar plum which pertains to the color, not the scent. It smells just like a tube of lipstick. 

Benefits: If you like the color you get from lipstick but it dries out your lips, this is perfect for you. Its also nice to have in your purse in case you're running and need to dress it up a bit. It'd be good for younger girls that aren't quite ready for lipstick yet too. 

Eco Lips Medicinal Lip Balm
Order it here!

Look & Feel: It looks yellow in the tube but goes on clear. Its a little thicker than your normal lip balm because it is medicinal and meant for use with cold sores. It feels nice on your lips which is great if you get cold sores like I do! 

Scent: The scent is nice and soothing and relaxes you a bit. Its not overpowering at all. 

Benefits: This lip balm contains organic tea tree oil, camphor, lemon balm, calendula and L-Lysine are known to aid in the healing of cold sores. Cold sores are such a pain to being with so having something that will help heal and soothe your lips is great. 

Dagoba Roseberry
Order it here!

Look & Feel: I love this one! It feels nice and smooth and gives your lips a slight chocolate colored tint. 

Scent: The smell of this one is so great! You put it on and get a nice scent of a chocolate covered berry. I found myself pursing my lips just to smell it from time to time, lol

Benefits: Its USDA certified organic lip balm with cocoa powder, raspberry flavor and rosehip oil. If you like chocolate, then you'll be putting this on all the time. 

The lovely people at Eco Lips are giving away their Eco Lips Gold lip balm with an Eco Clip!

*Attention: Adult Content {18+}* Finally get some foreplay w/ EdenFantasys!

[This is my 1st EdenFantasys post and I'm going to be completely honest and upfront with you because I don't think there's anything to be ashamed about when it comes to sex. Sex is meant to be enjoyed!]

I headed to EdenFantasys and my boyfriend and I both looked around at all the fun stuff they have. By the way, unless its a surprise gift, have your man join you on EdenFantasys, he'll love that you're even thinking about ordering. You can pick out stuff together since you'll be enjoying it together ;)

One thing I desire more in my relationship is foreplay. Its the exciting prelude! And I know I'm not alone in this! It helps to be 'warmed up', it makes everything much more intense. Touch is such a strong sense and can give you the shivers and tingles that make getting to the sex so much more fun. For me, I enjoy the time spent enjoying each others bodies and getting a momentum built up- it adds to the excitement. 

There is more than one 'g-spot' on your body- and foreplay can help you discover all the spots on your body that work for you. You and your lover can both find out new things about each others bodies and that's the way to have a great sex life. 

Foreplay for is a way of saying, 'I'm so excited to be with you and I want to take the time to appreciate alllll of you' - what better way to indulge in pleasure than taking your time to pay attention to every inch? 

I wanted to share with you the great sex toys that I found that could help with making the foreplay go on and on.. 

On To The Fun!!

Body Dust Powder
If you're looking for some romantic foreplay that makes you feel gorgeous, try the Honey Dust Powder! This soft and delicate powder is made from pure honey. Bring in the romance with the included feather applicator. The applicator can also bring in the tickling aspect if you're into that. Its completely edible and comes in 4 yummy flavors to try. 

Body Paint
You can also be playful and creative and try their Chocolate Body Paint! You can turn your lover into your own (delicious) work of art. You can try all 3 flavors (I'd love to try chocolate/raspberry) of chocolate variations. I think it would make it so much fun to do some finger painting!

Body Souffle
The name alone intrigued me because it sounds so sensual and decadent. If you want an product that does double duty as a moisturizer and an edible cream then try the Body Souffle! It comes in 4 different flavors and if you're looking for a more rich and creamy texture, this is it! 

I already have some tattoos, but this is a fun offbeat way to get some foreplay going. If you've ever played around with the idea of getting a tattoo, then try the Tastee Tattoos! These edible tattoo shapes stick to your body for your lover to nibble off. You get 40 of them per box in a bunch of fun flavors. These could be a lot of fun! 

Try a Kit!
They also have a bunch of sex kits! Perfect if you want to have a sexy weekend or getaway as they include a couple of items to try. A couple of kits are also really romantic and would be perfect for an anniversary or wedding night! 

I love EdenFantasys- its a great sex shop to make foreplay the exciting playtime before you get to your fireworks. And if you're not getting fireworks, EdenFantasys can help you with that too! Happy shopping ;)

Prefense Hand Sanitizer Review & Giveaway!

I've never been a 'germ-a-phob' until I worked as a CNA. I constantly worked hands-on with people which meant that you had to have good hygiene. I was constantly washing my hands, putting on sanitizer and then hand lotion because it would dry my hands out so badly. I disliked using the hand sanitizer because it smelled so bad, made my hands so wet that I had to stand there and fan them and left a film that made them feel not so clean. 

I no longer work as a CNA but that experience turned me off of hand sanitizer. When I had a chance to review the Prefense hand sanitizer I was more than a little skeptical that it would impress me. Working as a CNA, I used all different brands and kinds of hand sanitizer and none of them were different than the next. 

My Prefense Hand Sanitizer Review

Texture: The first thing I noticed is that it was dispensed from a pump, liquid turning into a foam; not like the normal gel that you squirt out. I love that the foam sticks in your hand instead of running everywhere. The dispenser gives you just the right amount. It did not leave a sticky feeling on my hands, it felt as if nothing was on my hands and I didn't have to wait for it to dry. 

Scent: The scent on the bottle says, 'fresh citrus' but its not at all overpowering. Its a very subtle orange scent. You basically need to touch your nose to your hand to smell it. That's a nice feature because it won't overpower your perfume. 

Safety: The other thing I love is that it is water based and non-toxic which is great because Remy, my dog, is a hand licker. I didn't have to worry about him getting it in his mouth. 

Convenience: I loved that it does not wash off and moisturizes your hands. Just one application lasts through 10 hand washings! That means it will last longer and will save you money by not having to re-apply as often as other hand sanitizer.

About Prefense
Prefense is a new hand sanitizer that protects you from just one application a day. Prefense dries into an invisible, protective film that guards against pathogens in your everyday life. If you encounter germs, Prefense actively slices the cell wall of pathogens while keeping your hands soft and hydrated with the silica complex it contains. 

Prefense vs. Traditional Hand Sanitizers
Traditional hand sanitizers contain alcohol which work by dehydrating the cell walls of certain germs on contact. Once the alcohol based product has evaporated and dried, its anti-bacterial abilities are useless. 

Want to order? 
Head over to the Prefense Website to look at all their products and get some info. You can also visit them on Amazon which is a good deal if you use the 'free super saver shipping'!
