CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Caprina By Canus Body Lotion And Hand Soap Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

 

Canus is a won­der­ful Cana­dian com­pany that offers a wide range of body prod­ucts for the entire fam­ily. What is so dif­fer­ent about Canus com­pared to many other body prod­uct com­pa­nies is that their prod­ucts are made with fresh goat’s milk. All of Canus’ soaps and body washes are phos­phate free and biodegrad­able. Their body lotions con­tain no parabens. Their entire line of prod­ucts can very con­ve­niently be pur­chased at major retail­ers, gro­cery stores and phar­ma­cies near you. 

Fresh Goat’s milk:

Hydrates, Regen­er­ates
and Protects

Goat’s milk has unique prop­er­ties which are acclaimed across the world. Since its mol­e­c­u­lar struc­ture is sim­ple and short, it facil­i­tates the cream’s absorp­tion by the skin, con­tribut­ing to a deep and extended hydra­tion. It enables the restruc­tura­tion of the hydroli­pidic film giv­ing it back its sup­ple­ness and its elasticity

I have found since enter­ing my 40’s my skin does not stay as soft or sup­ple as it did  in my younger years. Liv­ing in Canada with the dry, cold win­ters does not do much to help your skin either. I have learned that you need great prod­ucts keep your skin healthy and glow­ing. When Canus offered to let me try out a few of the Fresh Goat’s Milk prod­ucts I totally jumped at the chance. I tested the orig­i­nal for­mula, olive and wheat pro­tein, shea but­ter and orchid oil in both the body lotion and the hand soap.

 Nor­mally I do not use a bar soap because the major­ity leave my skin feel­ing very dry, I opt for liq­uid soaps instead.  After using the Cap­rina soaps for only a few short weeks I am totally sold because my skin feels so soft after using it. I have very dry, cracked skin on my elbows and my hands always feel so dehy­drated and flaky. I was look­ing for­ward to try­ing out the Cap­rina body lotions to see if it would work on those two major prob­lem areas. The body lotions were not greasy or oily and left my skin feel­ing per­fectly mois­tur­ized and hydrated all day long. I did not have to keep apply­ing the body lotion which means a lit­tle goes a long way….and who does not want to get the most for their money! I am happy to report that this is the best body lotion and hand soap that I have used in a very long time. I can’t wait to go to my local retailer so I can pur­chase a few of the other Cap­rina Fresh Goat’s Milk prod­ucts and try them out as well.

Make sure you check out their entire range of prod­ucts includ­ing;  Mois­tur­iz­ing Clay Masks, Body­Wash, Foam­ing Milk BathAntibac­te­r­ial Liq­uid Hand Soap, Lip Balm and Ultra Mois­tur­iz­ing Wipes to name just a few. You can also get Cap­rina Fresh Goat’s Milk prod­ucts on Well.ca, the pric­ing is rea­son­able with the Cap­rina by Canus Fresh Goat’s Milk Body Lotion in the 75ml (the size I reviewed) for only 4.39 each and the Cap­rina By Canus Goat’s Milk Soap for only 1.99 each. You can’t go wrong with the qual­ity of this prod­uct or the price!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Dandrea Margaret Review and Giveaway!!

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

 

 

Dolce Mia is one of those online beauty shops that one grows to love imme­di­ately after try­ing their amaz­ing skin care prod­ucts. You can find lus­cious smelling soaps, hand cleansersbody wash, shampoo’s and con­di­tion­ers, all in an exten­sive array of deli­cious scents!!

 

 

 

 

Based in Sebastopol, CA, Dolce Mia Designs is a family-run busi­ness spe­cial­iz­ing in high-end gifts and dec­o­ra­tive acces­sories. “We offer a wide range of prod­ucts and styles. We are known for our fun, vin­tage designs and the qual­ity of our prod­uct. Jenny’s back­ground is in museum edu­ca­tion, Alex’s is in physics. This busi­ness began in 1991 as Jenny’s hobby.”

 

“Our bar soap:  Our bar soap is con­sid­ered “pure soap” which means that there are no deter­gents, no sul­fates and no alco­hol.   So real and pure is our bar soap, the FDA does not require that the ingre­di­ents be listed on the label.  Many bars on the mar­ket are actu­ally deter­gents, and not soaps at all. They are called “syn­det bars”, or syn­thetic deter­gent bars. They are made from syn­the­sized chem­i­cals (pow­dered deter­gent) and are typ­i­cally much harsher than soap. True soap, like ours, is made from nat­ural oils and is gen­tle –much more mild than detergents.

Glyc­er­ine is good!  And our bar soap con­tains a high amount of nat­ural veg­etable glyc­er­ine.   A nat­ural humec­tant, glyc­er­ine attracts mois­ture to the skin.  Glyc­erin soaps are known to have a mild ph and are gen­tle, mois­tur­iz­ing and soft­en­ing.  A high glyc­er­ine soap is espe­cially good for sen­si­tive and del­i­cate skin, and for children.”

 

 

 

 

 

As many of you know, I am always encour­ag­ing every­one to go green and use nat­ural prod­ucts. When I say nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, I mean using prod­ucts that will not leave a foot­print on mother earth. Choose awe­some nat­ural skin­care prod­ucts like those from Dolce Mia.

 

One of the main rea­sons it is so impor­tant to use the best nat­ural skin care prod­ucts when you can is because about 60% of what you apply to your skin will be absorbed into your body and into your blood­stream. This is great news for those nutri­ents and ingre­di­ents that are healthy for us, but it is bad news for those chem­i­cals that we do not want inside our bodies.

 

 

 

 

Dolce Mia sent me one of their hot sell­ing gift sets from their “Spread the Love col­lec­tion”. Included in this phe­nom­e­nal gift set is:

♥Guest Bar in Trop­i­cal Citrus

♥2 oz. Body Wash in Trop­i­cal Citrus

♥1/2 oz. Lotion in Trop­i­cal Citrus

♥1 oz. Hand San­i­tizer in Mango Tangerine

 

Dolce Mia donates 10% of prof­its from Spread the Love prod­ucts to Becom­ing Independent’s Fam­ily Resource and Advo­cacy Cen­ter which pro­vides infor­ma­tion and assis­tance to fam­i­lies and chil­dren with chil­dren with all types of dis­abil­i­ties through edu­ca­tion, sup­port, and a vari­ety of direct services.

 

 

 

 

I give Dolce Mia a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend their awe­some prod­ucts to everyone!!

CoolCanucks Review of OrganicaPure!!

Friday, December 16th, 2011

 

 

As many of you know, I am always encour­ag­ing every­one to go green and use organic prod­ucts. When I say organic skin care prod­ucts, I mean using prod­ucts that will not leave a foot­print on mother earth. Choose awe­some organic skin­care prod­ucts like those from Organ­i­ca­Pure.

One of the main rea­sons it is so impor­tant to use organic skin care prod­ucts when you can is because about 60% of what you apply to your skin will be absorbed into your body and into your blood­stream. This is great news for those nutri­ents and ingre­di­ents that are healthy for us, but it is bad news for those chem­i­cals that we do not want inside our bodies.

 

 

Organ­i­ca­Pure car­ries an exten­sive array of phe­nom­e­nal prod­ucts, such as the 2 that I was sent to review!

The Cocoa & Honey Stretch Mark Pre­ven­tion Lotion works beau­ti­fully! I have been review­ing this for awhile now, and the smell is heav­enly! This left my skin soft and sup­ple, and faded some of my lines which impressed me!!

 

 

I was also able to review the awe­some Cocoa & Honey Body Wash which I am now sold on! Again it has such a heav­enly scent, it lath­ers beau­ti­fully, and it also leaves your skin feel­ing clean and refreshed!!

 

 

 

In my per­sonal opin­ion, I think that Organ­i­ca­Pure sells the very best organic skin care prod­ucts out there and I rec­om­mend this great com­pany to everyone!

You can ‘like’ the Organ­i­ca­Pure face­book page to keep on top of any new prod­ucts and/or pro­mos and be sure to also fol­low @OrganicaPure on twitter!

 

 

 

I would like to thank Organ­i­ca­Pure for let­ting me review their won­der­ful organic skin­care products!!
