It wasn't too long ago that I first heard about konjac facial sponges and wondered how they worked. I mean how beneficial can cleaning your face with a sponge be?

You can use the sponge with your favorite cleanser or use it with just water. It is suitable for all skin types and can even be used by all ages. It's gentle enough to be used on babies.

Oh and it's really squishy! (When it's not dried out)

Vita Nut Milk Bag Review & Giveaway

Vita Nut Milk Bag

Have you ever made or tried making homemade almond or coconut milk? It's fairly easy and you only need a few things - a blender, a nut milk bag,a large bowl, and your ingredients. 

I once made coconut milk at home and made a huge mess. I didn't have a nut milk bag at the time and ended up using cheese cloth. I learned my lesson!

Vita Nut Milk Bag
The Vita Nut Milk bag is made from excellent quality, fine mesh material. It is resistant to tears and has a round bottom which means less product is wasted.

The nut milk bag is useful for making:
  • fruit and vegetable juices
  • nut milks
  • Greek yogurt
  • bean sprouts

I'm sure you can use it for other things like certain homemade cheeses.

BALM! Baby Diaper Balm {and 1st Aid}

Disclaimer: I received this product from BALM! Baby. As a BALM! Baby blogger, I agreed to use this product and review it on my blog. All opinions are my own.

BALM! Baby

BALM! Baby Diaper Balm and First Aid
Being a mom, we know all too well the pain that comes with diaper rashes. They range from mild to severe and make for a very cranky baby. I've used a few different diaper rash creams before but none of them compare to this one!

BALM! Baby

BALM! Baby's Diaper Balm is organic and made with 100% natural ingredients. It's even safe to use with cloth diapers and gentle enough for newborns! This would make the perfect gift for new and expectant moms. I loooove the way it smells too. :)

It doubles as a first aid balm with its unique healing properties. What else can you use it for?
  • Eczema
  • Cuts & scrapes
  • Burns (including sunburns)
  • Cradle cap
  • Bug bites
  • Psoriasis
  • Dry skin
  • Skin rashes
  • Sores
  • Post-partum wounds
  • Bruises
  • Dry lips

diaper balm

The diaper balm container is made of glass which makes it very eco-friendly. No need to worry about BPA. You can recycle it or simply reuse the jar once the balm is used up.

The balm (which is made in Hawaii) is also vegan and cruelty-free.

So far I've used it on my 2-year old's diaper rash and a few scrapes. The healing time is fast - I saw great results within a few hours after application.

BALM! Baby Diaper Balm & 1st Aid can be purchased here.

Keomi Skincare Organic Handmade Soap

Keomi Skincare

I love everything that has to do with handmade soap - the ingredients, the process, the colors and fragrances. Nothing compares to handmade soap!

What's so special about Keomi Skincare soap?

  • Contains no sulfate, petro-chemicals, artificial colors or fragrance, or parabens
  • 100% Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Not tested on animals

Keomi Skincare

 "Infusions of Comfrey, Chamomile, Calendula, and Collagen-rich Horsetail & Green Tea are blended with extra Essential Fatty Acids, in a Sweet Orange/Herbal Blend of Essential Oils."

I had the privilege of trying the Green Tea Goddess soap and was really pleased. It smells amazing - an invigorating scent of herbs and oils. It reminded me of a luxurious spa. One thing I didn't like was how fast it was used up! I did receive a sample-size bar so that makes a difference.

Since there are no nasty ingredients, the soap left my skin feeling softer than ever. It was super sudsy and moisturizing. I even used it when bathing my two-year old. Take a look at the ingredient list:
