SPF 20 In The Winter With A Tint


What is hypoallergenic, Paraben Free, Ultra Sheer, Anti-Aging and smells great?  If you guess Coola Organic Sunscreen you are right!  I have been reading so many articles about how important it is to protect your face and skin year round, not just during the summer time.  I have been really adhering to these guidelines as I don’t want to age any faster than necessary(call if vanity if you want!) The sun shines bright in the winter and your face needs protected.  Here is how to shine back and to keep your skin in great condition.

The sun feels great against my skin, but I feel even better when the sun touches my skin and it is covered with an SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen!  I have been using COOLA FACE organic sunscreen, it is lightly Rose scented.  The ingredients in COOLA are 98% natural and include things like Organic Acai Oil, Vitamin B1, B2. B3 and antioxidants Vitamins C and E which are helpful in protecting against aging.  Organic Sunflower gives this blend what my skin needs o help with elasticity, and organic Linseed Oil which keeps the skin from turning red.

When you pump this dispenser you will note that what comes out is not white and it is not clear, rather there is a tint, but as you blend this mixture into your face it disappears.  It is not sticky, nor does it leave a residue.  The sunscreen is not heavy on your face.  The tint will give your face a little lift.  If you should choose to not wear makeup, while it won’t cover flaws, it does provide a nice light coverage of color.  I was very pleased with how it went on, and stayed on.  It is recommended to re-apply every 2 hours when you are sweating or swimming.

2 cheek bones up for this great product from COOLA.  This would be a great stocking stuffer for any lady on your list. This is available at  Resorts, Spas, and Specialty Boutiques and online at COOLA.

I start my morning running, literally and I don’t stop until I hit the pillow.  Does that sound familiar?  As any busy mom can tell you it is more a way of life and survival than a choice and it can be done, but beauty and primping is often put on hold.  I consistently feel the need to freshen up during the day as I feel my makeup and hair need to be tended to.  A splash of water will only ruin my make up so what I have found is really a Refreshing Herbal Mist, by NeoCell

This is great for refreshing hydration and it offers skin balancing herbs, collagen and vitamins.  Best of all it is Paraben Free.
This is a spray that actually mists a cool mist layer of herbs, soothing aloe vera and moisturizing collagen.  This is OIL FREE and there is no artificial fragrance.  In order to use this product, KEEP your EYES CLOSED, pump it spray bottle and mist over your face and hair.  Let it dry.  It takes seconds to dry remember it is a mist.  You can wear this on top of your make up, or on your moisturizer, with sunscreen and if you have dry skin no worries, it will nourish it! I love the cool soothing feel it has when it goes on~refreshing.
‘Penetrating new time release serum with Hyaluronic Acid’
Hyaluronic Acid is necessary in hydration of the cells. Hyaluronic Acid has even been shown to help with cell turnover. This is an excellent serum for DRY skin! You can apply this up to twice daily.  Place this on CLEAN facial and neck skin then use your daily moisturizer.  Avoid contact with eyes. A little will go a long way.  This dispensing method is a pump.
NeoCell Collagen Radiance Serum
If  you are wrinkle guarding your skin this NeoCell Collagen Serum is a must try.  The product offers the following claims: to enhance the skin’s firmness,elasticity, and moisture.  I have only used it for a month, but I must say that the moisture part is very true.  I had a very dry patch, small, but  I used this each day and I have found that it is softer, and no longer a dry area.  Yeah! This is a pump dispenser and a little goes a long way.  If you live in a city that is windy, or where you are exposed to the sun is great on your face,  or if you are exposed to drying elements, this product is calling your name! It feels like butter going on, and it smooths right on with no greasy after effect.  This is not a cream, it is  milky-like color consistency and is odorless.  It evaporates right into the skin.  A few drops is all you will need.  It is not sticky.

I love summer and the sun and the pool but it is really hard on kids, their skin and their hair and usually at the end of the day, I am left with little kids looking rather beat up from really full days!

We used Sunny Days Sport Mineral, non-chemical sunscreen today, we really believe it smelled like oranges.  The sun was blistering hot and we applied it.  The sunscreen is thick when it comes out, so a little goes a long way.  The color it comes out is white and it does not take long to RUB it in.  I felt it covered and the children did not burn.  The smell was really pleasant.


After a full day of swimming and LONG hair, my daughter’s hair is always in need of detangler.  We have been using this detangler.  It’s called Dancing Hair.  It is non-sticky and it does not build up in my daughter’s hair.  It is sprayed in after she showers and it makes hair combing a NON-Challenge.
