February: Daily Goodie Box

The newest Daily Goodie Box to come my way was for this month. I received the box a few days ago and I have to say that this has been one of my favorite boxes to date! Here is what was inside and how much I enjoyed it!!

 

Sprig – CBD-Infused Soda: This was a tasty beverage and since I don’t drink soda, the bubbles were a bit much at first, but the flavor was great and it made my body feel pretty good too!
Zest Tea – High Octane Tea: I love tea! I love tea with a caffeine kick even more! I was so happy to try these teas and the blueberry one is by far my favorite so far!
Bambo Nature – Skincare Essentials:With sensitive skin, it is tough for me to find the right products. I really did like these products because they are gentle enough for babies!
Undercover Chocolate Co – Crispy Quinoa Snacks: YUM YUM YUM! I was very very skeptical about these snacks at first. I ate the whole bag and still wanted more!
Dimension Nails – Premium Nail Lacquer: I was really excited to find a nail polish that uses ingredients that I can pronounce. I didn’t like this color so much, but it went on smooth and didn’t have a strong odor like most others.
AWSB – Organic Wild Bar Soaps: I make my own soap, but I always like to try other brands. This one is good. It made my skin smell delicious!
Flickable – Lollipop Lip Gloss: I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! I cannot get over how cute it is and how well it goes on. It’s not sticky like I thought it would be.
CURAD – Germ Shield Antimicrobial Wound Gel: Curad always has great products and as soon as I used this one, I was impressed, yet again!
If you all have a chance to check out these products, you should!!

Another Great Goodie Box

It’s that time again where I share another company that has been so good to me! The Daily Goodie Box. I received my box just a few days ago and I cannot believe the greatness in the box! Here is a list of the items and my honest opinion of them.

Daily-Goodie-Box-Review-Aug-2017-1024x683

The Grandpa Soap Co – Thylox Acne Treatment Soap
I loved the scent of this soap. It wasn’t overwhelming and it works really well. As someone who makes soap, I always like to try others and this one is great!
Organic OCHO Candy – Chocolate Covered Coconut Bars                                                            https://www.ochocandy.com/product/coconut/
YUM YUM YUM! I love everything about this bar! It was way too small, but I know it’s just a sample. Now I’m hooked!
The Original MakeUp Eraser – Sample Pack
Again, I wish this sample size was a full size because I loved the way this eraser works. It was smooth and gentle on my skin and all I had to do was wet it. There were not added chemicals that irritated my skin like other types of makeup removers.
Hyalogic – Vitamin D3 Gummies
First off, they are delicious! I love when I find vitamins that I enjoy taking. I’m not sure how long it takes to see and feel results, but so far, I like these.
Sprig – CBD-Infused Soda
This was actually not something I would try again. I didn’t like the flavor at all. I think they do have other flavors which could be better.
KiZE – Raw Energy Bars
The idea behind this bar is great, but the taste and texture were not for me! It was really dry and stuck to my mouth. It made me feel dehydrated.
Alcala San Diego – Deodorizing Body Wipes
My husband really likes using these. They smell good too!
Herbal Zap – Party Detox Herbal Supplement
This is not something I generally use, but I tried it and it was okay. I don’t know if I used it for what it was supposed to be for.
Chocolat Frey® – Milk & Dark Crunchy Nuts Bars
You can never go wrong with chocolate bars! This one is amazing!!!

BOMBS away! We still LOVE bathbombs!

Bathbombs are all the rage – and it isn’t any wonder why we all love them so.

Packed together dry with other ingredients, baking soda and citric acid are completely non-reactive. As soon as they are introduced to water, they dissolve and effervesce, releasing the other ingredients into the bath water.
At Passion Flower beauty, we use natural ingredients like organic shea butter, essential oils, sunflower oil and sea salt. Some contain dried flower petals and even glitter!
Our bath bombs are moisturizing to the skin, and invigorating to the senses. Aromatherapy has been known to help with everything from stress to the common cold – and the pure essential oils in our bathbombs can sooth tired muscles, as well as your   stuffy sinuses.

While the glitter used in some of these bath bombs is biodegradable, and considered safe and eco-friendly, we know that some of our friends are still concerned and would rather not use the glitter bombs. We have plenty to choose from.
Ninja bombs, Star Wars bombs, eucalyptus, calendula, chocolate mint, lemongrass, cucumber melon, sinus relief, stress relief, lavender, cuppa joe, blueberry, detox, lavender sage, oatmeal milk and honey, festival, tie dye, Moroccan vanilla, and lavender mint are all free of glitter, and full of relaxing ingredients- and a couple of them even have a toy inside!! (And they make great holiday gifts and stocking stuffers!)

We care about all of our friends. If you ever have any concerns or questions regarding our products, please contact us!

Sharing Some Love

Every few months or so, we like to share with our loyal fans some of the other products that we love. We work with Daily Goodie Box to help share some awesome products that came to us in the mail. Part of doing our part for our fans is to recommend some products that they could use in their daily lives too.

We recently received the November Goodie Box and we have really enjoyed the products in it. Here is an idea of what we received and our honest opinion on the products in the Daily Goodie Box.

Love Grown – Kids Cereal Cups
I was super excited to try a kid’s cereal again because I never do. I was slightly disappointed by the flavor of this one. I received the sea stars flavor and it was pretty tasteless, in my opinion. I love this company and their granola products, but I was slightly less thrilled with the kids stuff.
Rise Brewing Co – Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Blood Orange
Coffee!!! How could I not love it? I was so excited about the flavor of this cold brew too. It was delicious after being chilled for a few hours in the fridge! YUM!
Ecosafe – Vitamin C Gummies
The one great thing about these vitamins is that there is no gelatin in them! This is huge for me because I cannot eat it and it is so hard for me to find gummy vitamins that do not contain it. This is huge! I would highly recommend these!
Green Goo – 100% All Natural First Aid
This stuff works wonders! I am so impressed with how well it goes on the skin and how great it made my skin feel!!!
Softer Than Brittle – Cashew
I am now hooked on this stuff! I just wanted more! It was so tasty and was so soft!
My M&M’S® – Personalized M&M’S®
We got the happy birthday ones and they were absolutely perfect!!
Eat Your Coffee – Salted Caramel Macchiato Bars
I was not a big fan of the taste or texture of this bar. It has potential to be awesome.
Choice Organics Teas – Earl Grey Tea
You can never go wrong with Early Grey! I loved this brand of tea and it is probably one of my new favorites.
All Good – SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen Lotion
I like the way that this goes on so smooth. The odor was minimal and it gave me a lot of protection overall in this Colorado sunshine.

Eucalyptus to the rescue!

The seasons are changing!  There is a chill in the air that some of us have looked forward to!  The holiday season is approaching; And while some are so excited, others dread what comes with that cooler weather – COLD AND SINUS ISSUES!

Some struggle with stuffy noses and itchy sinuses the entire cold season.  It seems just when we start to feel better, something else gets stuffy or starts to bother us.  Enter, MAGICAL eucalyptus to the rescue!

For centuries, Eucalyptus has been known for its medicinal qualities.  Not only does the aroma help clear the sinuses, but the essential oils from the Eucalyptus may be effective in fighting viruses and bacteria that cause colds and sinus issues.

At Passion Flower Beauty, we have several products that include magical eucalyptus!  The Sinus Relief bath bomb, the Eucalyptus bath bomb, the shower steamers and the Stress Relief bath bomb all have this special plant to help all your aches and pains this cold season!

Anti-aging, anti-oxidant rich – Rooibos!

Rooibos, or “red bush” comes from South Africa.  The leaves of this herb can be used to make a rich, red tea that is caffeine free and full of anti-oxidants.  Consumed largely in South Africa for many years, it is now used all over the world, where it is fast becoming known for its amazing anti-oxidant properties.  We are excited about using it in our newest facial creme!

th

Rooibos possesses a large amount of minerals such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium and  magnesium, and also has polyphenols and alpha hydroxy acid.  What does all this mean for skin?  Well, we will tell you!!

Some of the rare anti-oxidants in rooibos have amazing anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and even anti-bacterial qualities.  This is great for people who have common skin problems, such as eczema, some types of acne, and other problem skin.  Some of these anti-oxidants are hard to find in other herbs, so using rooibos in our facial creme makes it unlike most you can find anywhere else.

Our new facial creme is an exfoliate.  It helps scrub away the dead skin cells so that new cells can be created.  Rooibos helps remove the dead skin cells, and then aids in promoting the production of healthy skin cells This creme leaves your skin feeling and looking clearer and healthier – because it actually is.

But that is not all there is to love about this amazing herb.  We know it fights common skin irritations, acne, and even bacterial infections; yet there is still another quality of this fantastic plant – ANTI-AGING!! The great and powerful rooibos helps combat and neutralize free radicals, which are a major culprit in causing the fine lines and wrinkles we all dread.  With regular use, it can even reduce the appearance of those wrinkles!

We are so excited about using rooibos in our products, and we hope you will give it a try.  You will be so glad you did!

Toxins be gone with Activated Charcoal!

When most people think about charcoal, it has to do with the grill – but activated charcoal is so much different than those little briquettes that glow with heat!

340262-5dc76917d88a4f3fb5cde6a89b57294a

Activated Charcoal is derived from many of the same things as charcoal briquettes.  Basically it is carbon that has been oxidized in order to increase its absorption properties.  The oxygen “activates” the charcoal, making it a powerful tool in the absorption of toxins and bacteria in the body, and on the body.

We here at Passion Flower Beauty use activated charcoal in many of our soaps and bath bombs.  Not only is it proven to detoxify, it can also aid in removal of dead skin cells, which allows faster and more efficient production of new ones!  It also can help with the appearance of large pores, acne issues, minor skin irritations and can even help balance oily skin.

340262-4f08a3434964439cba64e0b7481e6fa0

Activated charcoal helps draw the toxins and bacteria to the surface, and then binds to it, to pull it out and then simply wash away.  It leaves your skin feeling clean and invigorated!
