CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Preston Cosmetics North American Hemp Co. Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Nat­ural skin care is the care of the skin (the largest organ of the body) using naturally-derived ingre­di­ents (such as herbs, roots, essen­tial oils and flow­ers) com­bined with nat­u­rally occur­ring car­rier agents, preser­v­a­tives, sur­fac­tants, humec­tants and emul­si­fiers (every­thing from nat­ural soap to oils to pure water). The clas­sic def­i­n­i­tion of nat­ural skin care is based on using botan­i­cally sourced ingre­di­ents cur­rently exist­ing in or formed by nature, with­out the use of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, and man­u­fac­tured in such a way to pre­serve the integrity of the ingredients.

As a result of this def­i­n­i­tion, many peo­ple who use nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, turn to Pre­ston Cos­met­ics for their all-natural cos­met­ics and envi­ron­men­tally friendly per­sonal care products.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics cur­rently car­ries the ever pop­u­lar brand called “North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.” as to which all of these fan­tas­tic prod­ucts are cur­rently avail­able to pur­chase. High qual­ity cos­met­ics at unbe­liev­ably low prices!! North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. is the first all nat­ural per­sonal care prod­ucts made with cer­ti­fied organic hemp seed oil!

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics is thrilled to announce 2 won­der­ful brands launch­ing in the Spring/Summer of 2011 called “Hush” — the nat­ural evo­lu­tion of salon pro­fes­sional hair care, and “Boo Bam­boo” — Nature’s fastest grow­ing plant has been har­nessed into a col­lec­tion of hair prod­ucts that’s guar­enteed to make your hair strong and glo­ri­ously shiny in no time flat!!

In the Fall of 2011 be sure to watch for Pre­ston Cos­met­ics — prod­ucts that are renew­able, rare, exotic, and mirac­u­lous!! How exciting!!!

Cos­met­ics nowa­days are con­sid­ered for both men and women. Nat­ural and organic cos­met­ics are fast becom­ing a trend in the indus­try. “Going green” for the envi­ron­ment has influ­enced the lifestyle of many peo­ple includ­ing their choice of make up, cos­met­ics, and skin care products.

Ide­ally and in gen­eral, all-natural and organic cos­met­ics are not tested in ani­mals and they do not con­tain chem­i­cals. Con­stant use of chemical-based make up on the face or skin can be harm­ful. Nat­ural cos­met­ics con­tain plant oils and extracts, barks, spices and dif­fer­ent oils from flow­ers. Elim­i­na­tion of unnat­ural ele­ments from your face and body can improve your com­plex­ion and skin condition.

Organic cos­met­ics appear the same as chemically-based cos­met­ics. They also come in var­i­ous colours and can enhance a woman’s beauty. The advan­tages of using nat­ural make up include health­ier skin and bet­ter com­plex­ion. The dif­fer­ence will become notice­able as you con­tinue to use pure organic cos­met­ics. Do your own research and dis­cover the ben­e­fits of using nat­ural beauty prod­ucts for your face and body.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics was extremely kind and gen­er­ous in send­ing me a huge box filled with fab­u­lous prod­ucts from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.! I was ecsta­tic when it arrived and saw all of the great prod­ucts in that box!

Included was hemp hang­nail helper — hand & nail cream, linoleic line lift­ing face cream, area 369 hair serum, organic oil oasis scented body oil mist, smooth cleanse smooth­ing sham­poo, and smooth seal smooth­ing con­di­tioner, all in full size!!!!! Also included were many trial sized sam­ples of the sham­poo, con­di­tioner and area 369 hair serum to make trav­el­ling much eas­ier!! I was beyond impressed with the gen­er­ous amount they sent me to try, and the deliv­ery time and cus­tomer ser­vice skills were also outstanding!!

Hemp is one of the most ver­sa­tile plants known. It can be grown in most cli­mates, is drought resis­tant, requires lit­tle fer­tiliser, min­i­mal pes­ti­cides or her­bi­cides, and has a range of uses. The seeds can be used as food and fod­der, and can be processed to pro­duce hemp oil. The stalks pro­vide fibre for tex­tiles, cloth­ing, rope, paper and build­ing prod­ucts. The bulk of the woody stalks can be used for paper, ani­mal bed­ding, and plas­tics. The hemp plant bio­mass can be used to pro­duce fuel. Any­thing that trees/timber can be used to pro­duce, hemp can pro­duce and more, includ­ing house construction!!

I give Pre­ston Cos­met­ics a huge thumbs up, and defi­nately rec­om­mend them to everyone!

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Pre­ston Cos­met­ics have gra­ciously offered to give 1 VERY LUCKY Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the exact same box chock full of items from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. that I was sent to review! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Serf to Surf Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

 

What a sweet review and give­away here folks!! I recently stum­bled upon Serf to Surf which is a dynamic, pro­gres­sive, and rapidly grow­ing com­pany located in Van­cou­ver, British Colum­bia, Canada. This sweet com­pany cre­ates, man­u­fac­tures, and dis­trib­utes pre­mium hemp-based prod­ucts. Serf to Surf believes that eco­nomic well-being and sus­tain­abil­ity are not mutu­ally exclu­sive. By cre­at­ing a pros­per­ous, pro­gres­sive oper­a­tion, they’re able to pro­vide for our­selves and our com­mu­nity in ways that pro­mote healthy, con­scious lives.

 

Serf to Surf car­ries an exten­sive line of prod­ucts like Skin Care, Pro­duc­tion sup­plies, lip balms, body balms, T-Shirts, mints, won­der­ful gift packs, and more!!

 

They make great body balms in dozens of vari­a­tions tai­lored for spe­cific pur­poses rang­ing from heal­ing balms to insect repel­lent to mas­sage balms to gen­eral all-purpose body balms. They are pack­aged in metal con­tain­ers which are both recy­cleable and highly reusable. For exam­ple, we use the tins when they are empty to store loose change, screws, nuts, bolts, rub­ber bands, or what­ever else we need to keep orga­nized in our draw­ers or cab­i­nets. A great alter­na­tive to lotions which come in large plas­tic con­tain­ers and whose main ingre­di­ent is typ­i­cally water.

About Serf to Surf, a Blurb from their website:

“We believe that peo­ple flour­ish if given oppor­tu­ni­ties to develop their gifts and skills. We believe each per­son should dis­cover and per­fect their pur­pose in life, and as a com­pany we can help pro­vide the space, sup­port, and eco­nomic avenues to make that a real­ity. We’re strongly focused on prof­its, but choose cre­ative avenues of mak­ing it real.
       

We’re suc­cess­ful because we set trends. We’re suc­cess­ful because we know that suc­cess depends greatly on atti­tude, and that by com­bin­ing a pos­i­tive mind with strength, skill and busi­ness acu­men, one can move moun­tains. We’re suc­cess­ful because we’re on the cut­ting edge of busi­ness, not due to high tech­nol­ogy, but our com­mit­ment to the ful­fill­ment of human poten­tial. We believe that the cus­tomer, in many instances in today’s world, is taken for granted and that this should not be. Our suc­cess depends on you, the cus­tomer and as such we will always cher­ish our rela­tion­ship with each and every cus­tomer and will always ensure that they know it by actions, not promises. 
  
           
Hemp is the world’s most durable and use­ful plant.
Hemp oil is extremely good for human health. It has the same omega fatty acids as the human body, which means hemp oil is quickly assim­i­lated into your sys­tem. Hemp cloth­ing will out­last any fab­ric on the mar­ket, and it wears in amaz­ingly well. Grow­ing hemp uses no fer­til­iz­ers or pes­ti­cides, while it takes 2/3 cup of pes­ti­cides to grow enough cot­ton for 1 sin­gle t-shirt. So not only is hemp good for you, its good for the earth, and the peo­ple who till its soil.  
            

We use only cer­ti­fied organic hempseed oil, unre­fined shea nut but­ter and the finest, purest ingre­di­ents you can find. We’re tak­ing the stigma out of hemp by intro­duc­ing it to once alien, var­ied, and global mar­kets, in ways that cap­ture their atten­tion. We’re set­ting trends by man­u­fac­tur­ing the best in pre­mium skin care prod­ucts for every­day peo­ple that don’t com­pro­mise human or eco­log­i­cal health. We hope that you will sam­ple and enjoy our wares and join the hun­dreds of oth­ers from all points of the globe, who have become loyal cus­tomers and cher­ished friends.”

I had the extreme plea­sure of be able to review a sweet box chock right full of these AMAZING Serf to Surf prod­ucts and every­thing that was sent to me from their Hemp Body Balm to their Beach­sex tan­ning but­ter totally blew me away and exceeded my expec­ta­tions of this company!!

Not only are their prod­ucts the ulti­mate BEST, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills and deliv­ery time were absolutely outstanding!!

A huge Kudos to this great com­pany for their excel­lent line of prod­ucts all at extremely low, unbeat­able prices!!
