Hey ya’ll.

Back with another beauty snap blogpost. I’m breaking down some beauty items I’ve been sharing on my snap chat lately. =)

Himalayan Salt Lamp

 I’ve been a fan of these himalayan pink salt lamp for years. I used to own one back when we lived in our very first apartment, but I can’t remember what happened to it. I recently got a few for around the house. These lamps are said to: 1)reduce allergies 2) improved mood 3) cleaner indoor air.

Here’s some insight from an Article on WellnessMama.com

‘Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves.

Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.

The unique combination of salt and a light source in salt lamps are what cause the negative ions. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts water to its surface and this water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source (this is also why salt lamps tend to sweat and appear wet in humid climates). The negative ions are generated during the evaporation process.

Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.’

Moon Juice Products

I’ve been following this Instagram account and paying attention to these products for a while now. I don’t remember where I first heard about them, but I was dying to test them out and see if they worked. Huge thanks to the company for sending me a package to try out. They are not paying me to discuss these. I LOVE the Vanilla Mushroom Protein + it’s made with raw sprouted plant protein. The ‘happy making system regulator Mucuna Pruriens’ are added to the same protein smoothie I make after the gym. I noticed that this combo definitely increases my energy levels and makes me feel upbeat and in a great mood.

I was really curious about the Beauty Dust. First off, right off the bat, I think it’s super pricey for the amount you get. Although I don’t doubt it a fabulous product, I could see myself buying the protein over and over again, but the beauty dust seems a bit steep. The taste isn’t amazing, but it’s not bad at all. It contains Goji and other beautifying ingredients. It’s great with tea, and I will make a cup of tea with a small scoop. The jury is still out on this one, so I will keep you posted.

I LOVE the taste of this sprouted almond butter. I add it to bananas for Oliver, and I make sprouted toast, and add it on top for breakfast.

Nano Facial Steamer

I was sent this steamer to try out.  I was told that it was a much better quality version than the one I previously owned (which was one from the drugstore). Once again, not paid or required to post about it at all, but I was absolutely shocked when the amount of steam that came out  was significantly more than the one I currently had. This one is very similar to the professional steamers at the spa. These sell on line for all different prices, so I would try to find the best deal if you’re interested. The price is a bit steep in comparison to the steamers you can easily find in stores. It’s great to use right before applying a mask and I try to steam once a week. =)
