A Skin Enhancing Drink : All Beauty Water Review

I came across All Beauty Water while doing some research for work and had to to try them out.  As someone who believes that we truly “are what we eat”, I think it’s important to take a look at what we eat and drink and how it affects the appearance of our skin.  I am a big tea drinker, and as I get older I am more aware of what I eat and what the consequences are.  I’ve also stopped smoking which was a big thing to pull off, but worth it in so many ways.

All Beauty Water contains 8 different skin vitamins, 7 skin nutrients and is the equivalent of two glasses of water in each bottle (16 oz) Formulated to nourish and hydrate the skin all at the same time, while adding some flavor to your day. It is vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free (sweetened with stevia, an all natural sugar substitute), and free of GMO’s.

8 SkinVitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B3, Biotin

7 SkinNutrients: Selenium, Green Tea extract, Magnesium, Manganese, Calcium, Potassium, Zinc

What I loved about All Beauty Water was that it came in tasty, flavorful versions unlike some beauty teas I’ve tried in the past. You know the ones…..they just taste so ‘earthy” and like dirt, but you drink it anyways because you know it’s good for you? These zero-calorie drinks come in three flavors: Strawberry Acai, Pomegranate Rose, and Cucumber Aloe and they all taste great, but I did have my favorites.

Strawberry Acai topped the list. I had this with dinner one night and it has the perfect flavor or strawberry and sweetness to it that I could have easily drank a second bottle in one sitting. I don’t know what acai tastes like on it’s own, but whatever the combination is in this drink, it’s a winner!

Pomegranate Rose was my second favorite. Pomegranate has some tarteness to it, but you get the taste of rose at the end of each sip which was really soothing. I’ve tried rose water ice cream before and loved the beautiful scent and delicate taste of the flower and it brought me back to that memory.

Cucumber Aloe was the last flavor I tried and while it was tasty, I thought the scent of cucumber in the drink was little strong for me. It’s not artificially flavored in any way, but somehow I think of cucumber being the most delicate, light scent/flavor and it was the strongest out of the three.

I really hope these water’s will become available in places I usually shop at (hint, hint: Ralphs in Orange County, CA) because I would buy a pack of these when I hit the market for our shopping.  Currently, these skincare drinks are available via amazon, or in stores located in New York where the brand originates. At around $3 per bottle, I say this is on par with most individual drinks you’d pick up at a convenient store (aside from cheaper, sugary sodas) but has so many vitamins in it that it makes it the true winner out of them all!

Keep an eye out for this brand because it’s starting to gain momentum and I can see this easily coming to California at one point.

If you’d like to find out more about the brand you should follow All Beauty Water on Facebook and Twitter to get updates. I see they also post coupon codes so you can save on your orders and I love that!  You can also check out their reviews on amazon and see what other people are saying about the brand…I think you’ll see I’m not the only one loving this skincare drink brand!

 

 

Teadora Nourishing Body Polish

iliketotalkalot iliketotalkblog reviewWhen I got a chance to review a body scrub I didn’t waste anytime signing up.  With winter here I can already feel my skin getting drier and needing a little bit more help to look healthy and moisturized.  Teadora Beauty is a natural and organic body care line that uses nourishing ingredients sourced from the Amazon rainforest.  The entire line is vegan, cruelty-free, and free of parabens, silicones, phthalates or sulfates.

Teadora is also a community conscience company that makes sure to use ingredients that are fair-trade sourced, and also gives back by giving some of its profits to Tiny Purple Fishes, a   non-profit organization that betters living communities in Brazil and the U.S through a partnership.

The product I was given to try was Teadora Nourishing Body Polish which can be used on wet or dry skin.  I opted to use it only in the shower when my skin was wet and ready to be polished.  During the winter I tend to get more ingrowns on my calves no matter how much lotion I slather on so extra exfoliation is definitely needed.  I found that the polish is fine-grained and not too rough.  It’s definitely worthwhile to take a few minutes per leg and really work it into the skin with small circular motions.  I also used this on my chest that needed some polishing and found no irritation occurred.

The consistency of the scrub is like a clay mask. When I looked at the ingredients I discovered that it has Brazilian white clay in it which is known to draw out impurities and is non-abrasive as it polishes the skin.  I think the little grit you do feel is the ground Acai seeds which makes you feel like you are getting some scrubbing in.

I’m a pretty aggressive scrubber for most parts of my body except my face, neck and chest,  and like a good sized grain to feel the scrub, but I did feel like this did the trick.  It is labeled as a polish instead of a scrub which makes sense that it has a more refined feel to it.

You can find Teadora online at their website, ShopHQ.com, and BeautyKind.com and you can also follow them on their social media.
