Grab Green*

This one is super out of the norm for me because to be perfectly honest up until my mom broke her shoulder in January. Once she broke her shoulder she gave us a speech of how we really had to step up our game and help her out because lets be honest I don’t think my house would be standing without this woman. (Shout out to queen Lor)! GrabGreen, which is a company that I met at Expo West wanted to send me four household products to review. So lets get into it!

Here is a little background of Grab Green! “The Grab Green team has spent years developing formulas with just the right balance of naturally-derived plant and mineral ingredients to create non-toxic products that actually work. In fact, Grab Green home cleaning and laundry care solutions are even more effective than the leading conventional brands while remaining gentle on our planet!”

So the company sent me 3 in 1 Laundry Detergent Pods inGardenia, Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Pods in Thyme with Fig Leaf, Cookware& Bakeware Cleaner Pods in Tangerine with Lemongrass and Stoneworks LaundryDetergent Pods in Oak Tree. I have to say I was way more excited about the laundry pods then any of the cookware and dishwashing pods because I hate anything to do with dishes. How the hell am I ever going to live on my own?

So let me start off this review by letting you know I am very skeptical of products that aren’t Tide or Finish. But I was very surprised by all of these products! They washed my dishes and my clothes perfectly! The detergent pods didn’t smell perfume like and left my clothes with a very slight smell after the drying process. They are all extremely convenient and would be perfect for someone living on their own or in college, you just toss one in and your done! For the detergent pods, I cant say if they give a deep clean because I don’t get dirty and no one in my house has like dirt stains or anything on there clothing but they did work for just us average people.

I would say if you are looking for a natural laundry detergent, natural dishwashing detergent or cookwear and bakewear cleaning pods you now know where to go, TO GRAB GREEN'S WEBSITE!! Everything is very affordably priced and can be bought on the Grab Green website or through Amazon! To sweeten this deal I have a coupon code for you!! 
You can get 25% off your purchase until May 7th with the code "Earth25"

Mellisa B Naturally*

Today I have my last Expo West beauty related review for you babes! This review is on the company Mellisa B Naturally! They sent me two products for me to test out and let you know my thoughts on. They are the TriPotency Peptide Serum and the Moisturize and More!

Here is a little back-story for Mellisa B Naturally. “The story of Mellisa B Naturally includes a fondness for fitness, health & wellness, natural skincare, and even love. It began early in the life of our co-founder and namesake, Mellisa. Her family and upbringing was grounded in health; eating healthy and keeping active was expected. Fruits and vegetables and fresh foods were staples – in fact, Mellisa was a teenager before she tasted a soft drink. After two years in development, and countless test versions and seemingly endless reformulating, Mellisa B Naturally’s first eight products were ready to debut. In 2016, Mellisa B Naturally introduced their line of anti-aging products that balance the potency of nature with modern cosmeceutical ingredients. Fruit and plant extracts work alongside peptides and antioxidants to create deep nurturing natural skincare.”

Now onto the products! The Moisturize and More had to be my favorite out of the two because I love trying out different moisturizers. I love different formulas and consistencies and think every single moisturizer is great but different in their own way. This one has been my go to night moisturizer for my super dry spots like my eyebrows, I know weird, and that weird part between my upper lip and my nose. This for me is the perfect thick moisturizer without it feeling thick and heavy on the skin. It really gets the job done, moisturizes the crap out of your face and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy and one huge plus it kind of smells like nothing! Sometimes when I use a night moisturizer for any part of my body my sheets will still smell like that the next morning and this leaves no scent trace which I truly appreciate! I also want to mention that this contains collagen and hyaluronic acid!!  YAYYY!!

Being only 20 and not really being super into all kinds of serums for my teenager hormonal skin I actually have a new appreciation for serums because of the Tri Potency Peptide Serum! It wont just help with fine lines and wrinkles but it helps with overall skin tone and skin texture! And I absolutely did notice that happening when I used this. I saw that some of my acne scars, which haven’t come into a full blown acne scar yet but are just dark marks on my face really liked this product, I think the marks have actually changed in tone!  I cant say I look any younger since I already look like I am 15 years old but I sure do feel better about these ugly marks on my face since using this product!

Mellisa B Naturally also has a ton of other products I am dying to check out like the Microdermabrasion Scrub and the Pumpkin & Coconut Exfoliating Mask (basically two of my favorite things put into a face mask!) Check out Mellisa B Naturally if you are in the market for any new skincare products! You wont be let down!

I have another amazing review from another amazing company that had a booth at this years Expo West & I had to share it with you! The company is called ATZEN & they sent me their Purify Calm & Clear Cleansing Gel which claims it clears pores and has a gentle lather!

Before I get reviewing let me first tell you a little more about ATZEN. “ATZEN starts with the premise that everyone deserves to have healthy skin. We understand the importance of great skin and how it gives one the extra confidence to succeed in life, love, and career. For over two decades, we have been working with industry experts and professionals along with end consumers to make having healthy skin a reality for everyone. Our products are the culmination of decades of research, field experiences, and customer feedback. Our latest reformulation of the entire line was inspired and made possible by recent scientific breakthroughs, ingredients, and advanced technology. We are excited to share them with you!”

At first I was surprised at the cleanser it came out kind of foamy and bubbly where I was totally expecting a super gel like cleanser. (Below is a photo so you can understand what I mean a little more about the consistency.) This completely worked in their favor and ultimately what made the product so great in my opinion! It lathered up so nicely and truly made my skin and pores feel very clean and smooth. It actually reminded me of washing my hands with a foaming soap but of course I was washing my face. This cleanser did all the right things for my skin which were, not making it feel dry, actually giving my skin a nice deep clean without being harsh, and it made my skin feel so soft and gave it the nicest subtle glow! It also didn’t break me out YAYYYY!!! I also have a bonus tip for you, which may be kind of weird! But if you apply this cleanser to a cotton pad and remove your face makeup it all comes off so easily! I was kind of just playing around with it and found out that this worked and was an extra added bonus!

All I can say is if you are in the market for a new cleanser you should absolutely check out ATZEN! You know when you try one product from a brand and know you will not be let down by other products by them? Well, this is one of those brands. I am already eyeing which products I want to try next (I am totally going to be purchasing the Breakout Remedy ASAP!!!!)
