An interesting way to get those pearly whites!

An interesting way to get those pearly whites!

I have partnered with BeLive to try out their Coco Charcoal Tooth Whitening Powder. When I first got this in the mail, MAN, I WAS EXCITED! I’ve always wanted to try out Charcoal teeth products and so has my boyfriend KC, so we were pumped to start using this powder.

A little bit of a background on charcoal and your teeth.
Activated charcoal is often used in emergency medicine to quickly absorb poison so it is not absorbed into the body.
Since activated charcoal is such an absorbent substance, it is able to asborb the acidic plaque on your teeth and remove stains.

 

 

Kc and I have been using this powder for about 3 weeks now. I really wish we would have taken before pictures because so far I have definitely seen a difference in the color of my teeth. We are only using it 2-3 times a week because there have not been substantial to know what negative effects to your enamel could come from daily use. We also do not replace our tooth paste with this, I will start with the whitening powder and brush for 3-5 minutes. Then I will rinse completely and brush with my normal toothpaste. This powder has little to no taste and makes your teeth feel extremely clean once you’re completely finished.  I will totally be repurchasing!

New HOLY GRAIL Face Mask!

New HOLY GRAIL Face Mask!


Recently I was given an opportunity to work with Vivo Per Le to try out their Mineral Clay Mud face mask at a discounted price!
I’ve been using it for a while and it is my face’s new BFF!!! It glides on super smooth, smells nice, and makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft without being oily at all! It has anti-aging properties in it as well which is pretty important to me , even though I’m in my early twenties. Its never too early to start preventing aging on your face , neck, and hands! Prevention is always better than trying to react and fix it once it happens!

 

This unique mask has three AMAZING ingredients to help it do all its magical things to your skin.
Bentonite Clay, Bamboo Charcoal, and Kaolin Clay.

Bentonite clay has healing properties that allow it to receive more oxygen, pull toxins from skin, and is even used to treat Eczema, Dermatitis, and Psoriasis.
Bamboo Charcoal dates all the way back to the Ming Dynasty. It is known for being able to draw out toxins and impurities, without being absorbed itself.
Kaolin Clay is most commonly used to cleanse the skin. It contains high content of silica that helps in removing dead skin while also keeping skin moisturized.

You can purchase this amazing mask here: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=me%3DA26Y1VZ91QJRCP&field-keywords=clay+mask
Vivo Per Le was also kind enough to offer 10% off to any of you that purchase by using the code  GETBRU10

 

Move over Lush, Bumble Road is killing the bath bomb game!

Move over Lush, Bumble Road is killing the bath bomb game!

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out Bumble Road Bath Bombs at a discounted rate in exchange for some feedback!
Let me just say, I was IMPRESSED! When I received the box from amazon, I could smell the yummy goodness inside before I even opened the box! My two favorites from the 4 pack are Really Rose and Luscious Lavender..  Really Rose smells like literal heaven. Its got an amazing rose scent with hints of a fruitiness to it, (not that grandma rose powdery scent). It has small pieces of rose pedals in it that float in the bath which makes these extra luxurious.
Luscious Lavender is great for bedtime. Researchers have found that Lavendar helps to relax you and decrease heart rate and blood pressure, which is perfect for right before your slumber. They fizz for a good 10+ minutes and they leave your skin super soft! The best part is the scent lingers on your skin for what seems like forever afterwards!  My favorite bath bombs I’ve tried so far!!
You can purchase these bath bombs on amazon at : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072C7ZP3W

Never using bottle shampoo again! – Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar

Never using bottle shampoo again! – Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar

I recently purchased my very first solid shampoo bar from my local lush and now I may never go back!

Heres the low down on the Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Honeycomb (Beeswax), Fair Trade Honey, Fragrance, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Bergamot Oil,Water (Aqua), *Limonene, *Linalool, Amyl Cinnamal,Citronellol, Lilial. *Occurs naturally in essential oils 

 

(ingredients list from lushusa.com)

They promise soft , bouncy, lightweight hair and Girl, let me tell you! They weren’t kidding!  My two main concerns going into a bar shampoo was that it wouldn’t lather up and also that I’d be left with a film on top of my hair, yuck! 

I am happy to report that it lathered up SO WELL, which for me is imperative to feel like my hair is actually being cleaned. There also is no left over film. Just soft hair that feels brand new. This smells just like the Honey I Washed the Kids soap , which is my personal favorite!

Lush recommends two ways that you can use the shampoo bar,  to lather up between your hands and than add to hair, or rub bar directly in hair. I feel it is easier to evenly spread the product to just rub it all over your scalp and than distribute through out.

Lush Cosmetics says it can last up to 80 washes (equal to 2 bottles of shampoo).
I haven’t had it long enough to test that claim.  I will update once I’ve used it up!

I will definitely be repurchasing!
