Sugar Sisters Body Scrubs – Review

 

Body Butter ~ Lip Scrubs ~ Body Butter ~ Body Mists and More

 

Let me introduce you to the Sugar Sisters.  The Women behind these products – Michel, Rachel, Leah and Lauren have over 30 years of experience in the cosmetic and beauty products industry.  The Sugar sisters offer all natural scrubs, body butters, body mists, lip scrub balms, organic body washes and room deodorizers.  The scrubs are paraben, phthalate, formaldehyde and nitrate musk free.  They never use petroleum or fillers of any sort in their handcrafted products. The products are not tested on animals, are safe on sensitive skin, environmentally safe and maintain a shelf life of 1-2 years.

I tried Sugar Sisters scrub in Bare Truth.  Their website describes this scent as honeydew, strawberries, with a hint of coconut.  It’s bright and fresh and tropical to my nose.  This scrub gave off the most heavenly scent in the shower.  I did have to mix it around a little with my finger to distribute the oils, but the scrub exfoliated my tough shins with just the right amount of scrub and left my skin truly feeling soft and not sticky at all.  Unlike other scrubs I’ve used in the past, this kept my skin feeling soft all day.  The scrub is 6.7 oz. and retails for $26.00.

 

Sugar Sisters Sugar Scrub Contains:

  • Grape Seed Oil – boosts skin’s regenerative properties
  • Coconut Oil – allows skin to maintain moisture naturally
  • Sweet Almond Oil – rich in omegas, Vitamin E and nutrient rich lipids
  • Meadowfoam Seed Oil – repairs and hydrates the skin naturally

I chose to review the Body Butter in Pink Teddy, a soft feminine sweet raspberry inspired scent.  The body butter smelled good enough to eat!  Oh my goodness I loved this!  It was a pleasure to use, making my skin felt, soft, smooth and moisturized and glowing. The scent lasted a good long while, so you may want to keep that in mind if you were planning to wear perfume on the same day. Sugar Sisters Body Butter is 6.7 oz. and retails for $24.

Body Butter contains:

  • Jojoba Oil – non-greasy, quick absorbing oil that hydrates the skin naturally
  • Hemp Oil – allows skin to retain moisture, glow and naturally shine.
  • Borage Seed Oil – restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin

 

I also tried Sugar Sisters Organic Body Wash in Daydreaming, a warm vanilla and pure lavender scent enriched with aloe.  The website claims this is a low sudsing body wash, and I would agree with that.  I wasn’t as wowed with this product and I was with the scrub and body butter.  My personal preference is a body wash with more sudsing action.  Yes, it did get me clean, but I didn’t find it to be very moisturizing on my skin.  The bottle I received also had a packaging flaw that made using the body wash a frustrating experience.  The cap was mis-aligned making it difficult to dispense the product.  I’ve included a picture below.  Overall, this wasn’t my favorite Sugar Sisters product.  The body wash is 8 oz. and retails for $16.

Hard Candy Blooming Lip Oil Review

HARD CANDY BLOOMING LIP OIL REVIEW

Color changing products are extremely popular right now, so when I was given the opportunity to review Hard Candy’s new Blooming Lip Oils, I said “Bring it on!”

The lip oils are packed with 10+ essential oils and are one of those magical color changing lip products that react with the PH of your lips to produce a hue that is unique to you.  The lip gloss is easy to apply due to its doe foot applicator.

 

 

Available in three colors:

Black Rose – transforms from black to a bright pink tint

Calming Peach – transforms from clear to coral

Zen Strawberry – transforms from clear to rosy pink

The first color I tried was Black Rose.  To be honest, I was horrified at my black lips…for about 20 seconds.  Right before my eyes, the scary black color morphed into the loveliest shade of pink.  Black Rose was the only color I received to review, but I was so impressed with it, I went to Walmart and purchased the other two colors so I could do a proper, more in depth review.

These lip oils are silky and smooth.  The gloss stays around for about 3 hours, but what you are left with is beautifully hydrated lips and a gentle stain.  This stuff really lives up to the claims of hydrating for up to 8 hours.

Here is what Hard Candy has to say about their product:

Blooming Lip Oil is a hydrating oil-gel lip treatment that quenches and hydrates dry, chapped lips for up to 8 hours. This formula instantly melts onto the lips, coating them in a blend of hydrating oils. The result is an extremely shiny finish in a shade that adjusts to your body chemistry. By interacting with your body’s pH levels, you will see a uniquely adjusted shade every time. The shades adjust to translucent and natural hues that tint lips for hours so you never need to re-apply. This lip oil-gel formula is fully packed with more than 10 essential oils that penetrate deep beneath the surface to nourish your lips. The oils repair and heal dry, parched lips and protect them from chapping.

If you’re a lip gloss lover, it really is worth checking these out!  Available for $6 exclusively at Wal-Mart.

3 Business Ideas for Busy Moms

It isn’t easy being a mother and we all know that it’s a full-time job. However, once those initial years are gone, you may just find a little more time on your hands than you are used to by now. If you are thinking about going back to your job but worried at the same time about restarting your career after such a long break, then know that you may not really have to go through those grueling hours ever again. Instead, you can start a business from home to work according to your own convenience, while never really being away from your family. It would help though if you had a bit more knowledge about business and marketing in general, and you can do that from the convenience of your home too. Just get an online MSM degree from the highly praised New England College and at the end of the course, you should be able to turn any venture into a profitable business in no time.

Blogging

It is a somewhat saturated field but nevertheless, blogging continues to be one of the prime sources of income for stay-at-home moms. Choose a topic that you have both knowledge and interest in and post content to your blog regularly. Once the blog begins to pick up, your earnings will come via affiliate marketing, advertisements, and product promotions primarily. However, in order for it to pick up in an extremely competitive market, SEO optimization, social media marketing, guest posting and other forms of content marketing might be necessary.

Virtual Assistant

The job of a VA is to provide assistance to businesses primarily in terms of marketing, technical support and running administration. This is one of those jobs where you will get the best opportunities if you complete an online master of science in marketing management and put it on your CV. The advantage of being a VA is that instead of being tied down to a full-time job for just one person or company, you will have the opportunity to work for multiple companies and get paid for every hour that you provide them with your services; not to mention, you will be doing all that from the comfort of your home and your own laptop.

Food Business

This one requires a lot more funding than the two ideas above and getting a food license for operating a food business from home can be a tricky affair. However, once you acquaint yourself well with the rules and regulations that govern the prerequisites of getting the license and manage to invest some money into your business, a bakery or something similar can be a very profitable business, especially if you are good at cooking. When the business starts to see some profits, you can hire someone to help you so that you can get even more time for yourself.

In case you would like some more options, don’t worry because there are plenty! You could be opening up a child day care facility if you have sufficient spare space in your house. If creativity is your forte, then you could use your artistic skills to make and sell unique gift items or art online.
