Pretty Balm by Root Pretty
Root Pretty lip balm is the best balm I’ve ever met. Before I learned about Pretty Balm (from a friend) my lips were always dry, cracked and peeling with that embarrassing white line around my mouth. While I’ve always struggled with dryness due to allergy and asthma medications, chemotherapy treatments made it worse.
I tried everything I could think of to get rid of the ugly. Natural products and homemade concoctions worked but only temporarily. Desperately seeking a solution I kept going back to chemically charged products. They didn’t do anything but interrupt my peace of mind, because every time I ate or drank something while wearing it, I thought about all of those nasty chemicals I was consuming. But with Root Pretty lip balms (and glosses too!) I don’t have to compromise. My lips look better than they have in a long time and I don’t worry about toxicity.
Tip: I exfoliate with a toothbrush daily and then apply the balm . To make it easy for myself I shower, brush and exfoliate at the same time. If you have to take an extra step, you won’t do it. Just do it all in one shot. P.S. This balm is the last thing I put on before going to bed and the first thing I put on in the morning.
You might want to know. Root Pretty is 100 percent natural and vegan. The lip balm comes in a variety of colors like Scarlett, Punch Love, Paris and Doll Pretty. It’s the perfect gift for the young girl experimenting with makeup. I’m also recommending it for wedding party gifts in an upcoming guide. Pretty Balm price is $8.00.
Root Pretty also has a Gloss (see the above picture)
The Root Pretty gloss is for those days when you wanna up your game. It’s pretty, glossy, smells like baked goods and is chemical free. Root Pretty Gloss price is $16.00.
100 Percent Pure Primer
Primer is something I recently started using. And I am so glad I did! I recommend this product for women struggling with dry skin, aging skin, physical changes including menopause or for women who face harsh weather conditions. Pure offers two types of primer; a mattifying formula that minimizes shine and the luminous one that I use.
Tip: I use this on my hands and neck.

100 Percent Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Creme
This eye cream has a rating of 4.7 stars out of nearly 500 reviews! It targets dark circles and puffiness. It comes in two sizes so you can buy the small one if you’re not sure about it. My husband and I both use it. It smells a little like frosting and it’s so moisturizing you may want to lather yourself in it. If you live near a Pure store you can go in and try it out before buying it. Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Creme price $25.00.
Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant
Natural deodorant is so hard to find. They either don’t work or they aren’t truly as natural as they want you to believe. But this stuff really works. Pictured here is a jar sample I got in a kit. The jar product requires a little more work because the consistency is not very smooth, but, it’s worth the effort. Recently, a friend of mine bought the Schmidt’s deodorant stick and she loves it! I’m feeling like the stick is the way to go. Whatever you settle on, this a good product. Schmidt’s price right now is $8.99. You can save 10 percent using the Spring code “Spring 16”
Tip: Regularly moisturize your underarms with coconut oil. You’ll be surprised by the results.
There’s plenty more on the horizon so keep coming back!
