Repair Your Hair with L'Occitane's NEW Aromachologie Collection ~ Plus Review

As women, our hair endures so much. From blow-dryers and curling irons to being pulled into an elastic – just our daily grooming routine can cause breakage and frizz. That’s why L’Occitane (alongside celebrity hairstylist, Laini Reeves) is introducing their NEW Aromachologie Repairing Collection.

Specially formulated with essential oils; Geranium, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Sweet Orange and Angelica, the collection helps to repair, strengthen and protect dry, weakened and brittle hair.
L’Occitane’s Aromachologie Repairing Collection includes:

Repairing Shampoo ($20): This silicone-free shampoo cleanses and helps to smooth hair scales – repairing even the most weakened hair.

Repairing Conditioner ($20): Enriched with sweet almond oil, the melt-in texture of the conditioner helps fill gaps in the hair shaft and delicately coat the hair fiber, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

Repairing Mask ($32): With its creamy, generous texture, enriched with sweet almond oil and shea butter, the Repairing Mask helps repair hair from root to tip.

Repairing Oil ($26): The Repairing Oil takes excellent care of your hair. A few drops are all you need for beautiful locks!

I am so happy I had the chance to review the Repairing Oil. This product has come at the perfect time with summer ending. With all of the humidity, heat, pool water and more, my hair was not looking that good. This product is so easy to use simply use a few drops and it does the job. You can tell immediately tell the difference of how your hair feels and looks when you use this product.

I like that I can use this product three different ways to get my hair looking great. You can either use it before shampooing to help nourish and soften your hair. You can use it before blow-drying to help with tangles and heat damage. You can also simply use the product on dry hair to help protect from the sun, help with flyaway’s and to soften your hair. I have tried it all different ways because I wanted to see how well this product worked. This is my go to item when my hair simply needs some help for the day.

Mama Mio for Moms Review

Back to school doesn’t just mean a new routine for your kiddoes. Knowing your children are in trusted hands throughout the day allows more time to concentrate on YOU.

Even if it’s a brief break between the school bus pick-up and your drive to work, 4 minutes is all you need with Mama Mio’s Bootcamp Kits.

Mama Mio’s Bootcamp systems are designed to tone the body and your skin with minimal commitment –  in just 4 minutes only!
Bootcamp for Butts: Exfoliate, tighten and tone with Mama Mio’s OMega Body Buff, Skin Tight and Shrink-to-fit to insure a great outcome.

Bootcamp for Arms: OMega Body Buff exfoliates, Skin Tight lifts sagging skin and tricep and shoulder exercises give you the right to bare arms.

Bootcamp for Boobs: By applying Mama Mio’s Boob Tube and Skin Tight daily, along with a short bust-perking program, you’re sure to get results! 

As you, all know I recently had a precious little baby girl who just turned 1 month old today. Since, I had her I have been trying to get my body back to where it was before I got pregnant. Of course, I know I cannot just snap my fingers and I back to normal although that would be great. However, an amazing item has helped me in getting my arms back into shape. I had the chance to do a review on the Mama Mio Bootcamp for my arms. This is a Skincare & Exercise System that will help you get your arms looking amazing in just 30 days for only 4 minutes a day. 

I love how easy the system is to use and how it lets you know what item is to be used when. This really helps in making sure you achieve the best results. The complete system comes with:
Step 1 ~ Omega Body Buff
Step 2~ Double Buff Glove
Step 3~ Skin Tight Toning Serum
Step 4~ Exercise System 

The Omega Body Buff is amazing and really helps your skin look healthier. It helps make sure your skin is smooth and takes care of the dry skin that you may have. You only have to use this product 3 times a week before you shower. 

The Double Buff Glove has really helped with the appearance of my arms. I only have to use the glove once a day for about a minute a day on each arm. I simply rub my arms in a circular motion and it really exfoliates my arms and offers a healthier glow to them. 

The Skin Tight Toning Serum really helps with the slight sagginess that has appeared after having Lillian. Within the last 30 days I can really see the results and feel the results.

The last step 4 minutes a day exercise system is just that. You only have to do the arm exercise one time a day for four minutes and then you are done until the next day. The exercise is simple and fast yet very effective.


I really love how great my arms look and feel. Before I got pregnant, I am not sure my arms looked this amazing. I am very happy with the results and with my busy life; I love that I can get these results for only 4 minutes a day. 

Where to purchase: Mama Mio’s Bootcamps retail for $75.00-$99.00 and can be purchased at http://www.mamamio.com

Then to find something that will actually work can be hard. This is where Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub comes in. This face scrub is amazing and works deep down in my skin. When I use this product to clean my face and I can tell immediately after washing my face that this product worked. The beads offer an exfoliating experience that leaves your skin smooth and clean.
