Friday Fascinations: 5 Must Have Beauty Products

Look, we all know I am no beauty blogger!  But hey, guess what?  I was recently selected as a Top 30 Most Interesting Running Blog.  Yeah, I think they might have made a mistake too.  You can read the article here.

That said, I am telling you about my 5 MUST HAVE, cannot live without products I use on a daily basis.  I was not sent any of them for free.  They are completely purchased by me for cash money and I will continue buying them because I love them!

1.  Coola SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen in Fresh Mango

Okay, I started with this one because May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and second, because mangos are my favorite fruit and this one smells EXACTLY like a fresh mango.  It is not greasy or heavy and it is perfect on the skin.  I wear it on my face!  It is not cheap and retails at $32.  But there are codes out there.  You can get it at DermaStore for 20% off with code memorial.

2.  Native Deodorant (any scent)

I recently made the switch to Native deodorant because I was done with using heavy chemical and artificial ingredient laden deodorant.  And when my daughter is ready to wear deodorant, I want her to wear an all natural one like Native because of breast cancer in my husband's side of the family.  Ingredients like coconut oil and shea butter sound a heck of a lot better to me then paragons and aluminum.

3.  Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter

You all know how much I love my Trader Joe's.  Well, this is hands down my favorite Trader Joe's product.  It smells amazing and leaves your skin silky soft after a shower.  I keep saying I want to do a giveaway of my favorite TJ products and this would be at the top of my list!

4.  Trader Joe's Tea Tree Spa Face Wash

Another product I use every single day.  My face feels tingly and clean once I use this product.  Be careful though - DON'T get it in your eyes!  Danger!  I feel like it gets all the impurities out and it is pretty awesome!

5.  LOMA Shampoo & Conditioner

My hairdresser told me about this product after I complained about my dry thick hair for the 87 millionth time!  It smells fantastic and leaves your hair feeling soft.  It isn't very expensive and I order mine from Amazon.  A giant bottle is only $23!  I order everything from Amazon!  Haha!  Or Trader Joe's!

As always, I am linking up with MarCourtney and Cynthia - AKA the DC Trifecta, Nicole for Fit & Fashionable Friday and Jill for Fitness, Health & Happiness Link-Up! 

So tell me about your must have and can't live without beauty product!  Have you ever tried one of the above?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom

Try Out Thursdays Link Up: Santa Cruz Juice Review & #GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: I received this product from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program (greenmomsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.
Happy Thursday!  Where has the week gone?  It is almost time for that crazy #Fontana2SD thing I am doing two weekends from now.  Catch up on all the social chat about it here.  But first things first!  I want to tell you all about the Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca juices and give you a chance to win some too!

What is Agua Fresca?  They are a combination of fruits, cereals, flowers, or seeds blended with sugar and water to make light non-alcoholic beverages. They are popular in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and the United States.  Well, these juices are made with the same core ingredients such as organic fruit juice, sugar, and a hint of lemon juice. 

They are super refreshing and lightly sweetened and only 60 calories a serving. 

They are non-GMO and gluten free and come in 3 flavors: Mango Passion Fruit, Grapefruit and Pomegranate.  A 32 oz bottle retails for $3.20-$3.49 depending on where you buy it.

I have always loved their mango lemonade and hadn't yet tried the Agua Fresca line up and I am pleased to tell you I love these too.  Not too sweet and perfect as a mixer!  (Heard from a friend HAHA)

And my kids are loving their applesauce too.  All organic with the perfect amount of sweetness.  With the summer coming, it is a great way to get their hydration in!

I am giving away two bottles of the Agua Fresca to one lucky winner!  All you have to do is comment below with which flavor sounds the best to you!
