Morning Pep Pure Birch Xylitol Sweetener Review with Recipe

Hello Pop Culture Shockers! Missed me? Oh, I missed you all soooo much and I am back. Back to share something amazing that I've just discovered! I am pretty partial to the taste of sugar. I just think it has a clean taste, it's sweet, and has no after taste. I have tried Stevia, Splenda, Equal, Sweet N Low, etc. in baked goods and never found one that I could tolerate.  Then along came Morning Pep Pure Birch Xylitol Sweetener! It has no aftertaste what-so-ever. I can literally eat a spoonful and it tastes just like sugar. I have used it in drinks, baked goods, and pretty much everything else that calls for sugar and it works great.

In doing a little research about MorningPep Pure Birch Xylitol Sweetener, I found out quite a few more impressive facts -- for example Morning Pep Pure Birch Xylitol Sweetener is lower on the Glycemic Index and has 1/3 the calories of sugar! Tell me that isn't something worth looking into? Along with this healthy fact comes another -- apparently Morning Pep Pure Birch Xylitol Sweetener is good for your oral and dental health as it reduces plaque, gingivitis and cavities!

Moroccanoil Body Collection Review

While many are familiar with the Moroccanoil brand for its superior hair care products, some may not be as familiar with the Moroccanoil Body Collection. The brand was at the forefront of introducing consumers to argan oil for our hair and later launched a line of body care products based with the same infusions.

Perusing a sampling from the line, I can share my experience with key products from the Moroccanoil Body Collection. Behold Moroccanoil Body Buff, which is made with naturally exfoliating orange peel; this is an energizing, daily-use scrub that gently polishes away dead skin cells. Body Buff is paraben-free and offers the added benefits of argan oil blended with Vitamin E and nourishing avocado, grape seed, safflower, sesame and sweet almond oils rejuvenate skin with intense moisture. Moroccanoil Body Buff is an essential as we go into the warmer months.

Moroccanoil Body Butter is a luxurious, concentrated body cream that absorbs quickly upon application without leaving behind a greasy residue. This too is paraben-free and offers antioxidant-rich argan oil, shea, cocoa and mango butters melt together to deliver nourishment, while avocado, olive, squalane and pomegranate oils instantly soften and nurture skin.

Moroccanoil offers Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil which can be used on the skin, nails and hair. The price point of this premium grade argan oil was quite pleasing and makes this luxe product easily affordable to all. The non-greasy oil provides multiple conditioning benefits for the face, body and hair making the multi-use product an intelligent investment. It glides on like silk and absorbs quickly for a head-to-toe moisturizing and pampering experience. And although Moroccanoil’s signature scent is delicious, Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil is fragrance-free for which works exceptionally well when dealing with sensitive skin.

New to Moroccanoil, and rather essential for the mind, the Moroccanoil Candle with Glass Vase. Moroccanoil Candle  is crafted in France using premium European wax to softly illuminate and fill the space with the fragrance beloved by so many, creating a warm and soothing ambiance. Many of us won’t be able to jet over to the Mediterranean at whim, but oh how this candle captures the pure essence of the sand, ocean and sky! The Moroccanoil Candle is well crafted, offers a cotton wick that burns for 50 hours and the beautiful double wall glass vase is perfect for storing small personal items once the candle has burned through.

Earthen InstantPeel Facial Review

The facial peels that you receive at the dermatologist or at a spa can be massively expensive and recovery time is at least a few days. My mother has had two and with her experience, albeit good results, I was slightly apprehensive about testing out the Earthen Instant Peel Natural Dead Skin Remover at home. Or rather, I should state that my cousin was slightly apprehensive.

Kirsten has spent way too much time in the sun and the sun damage is evident. She’s only 29! After I did a little research, with Kirsten at my side, we discovered that Earthen Instant Peel is a non-irritating exfoliating peel filled with skin-loving natural ingredients. Each Earthen Instant Peel box contains six single packets and is 10-minutes of well spent time. It is very simple to use – Kirsten used my facial steamer for five minutes (you can actually use this in the shower, I just happen to have a facial steamer that I love), you take one Earthen Instant Peel and apply product to your face. Earthen Instant Peel does the rest!

Small balls of dead skin began to form on Kirsten’s face and after about 15 minutes she rinsed off the Earthen Instant Peel with warm water. One application was like night and day for her skin! No irritation or redness, just lovely soft and rejuvenated skin. Kirsten still has a bit of work to do with more twice weekly applications (so, check back for an update)! Enclosed inside the box are easy and direct instructions, which actually state to use in the shower. Earthen Instant Peel Natural Dead Skin Remover is available online at Amazon!
