Have you started looking for a Mother's Day gift yet? If you want to give the gift of soft and amazing skin, the Certified Fabulous team recently tried a brand that makes some beautiful products called Premier by Dead Sea Premier that will do the trick.

The Dead Sea is a natural geographical phenomenon formed millions of years ago and is located at the lowest point on Earth. Today, the Dead Sea is still well regarded for all of the health benefits it has to offer. It has a high concentration of minerals, salts, water, and mud of the sea that provide incomparable skin benefits. The Premier Dead Sea has taken all the magic from the Dead Sea and the world's best skin care scientist to bottle up the wisdom of nature and advances of technology in order to deliver harmonious synergetic benefits to your skin and life.

The Dead Sea Aromatic Salt Scrub is easy to use and is formulated to be very effective on a variety of skin disorders. Premier claims that it takes the bad out of your skin and replaces it with the good, and it certainly lives up to that. When gently rubbing the product into your skin, you can feel the salt literally melting into your skin and doesn't flake off, which left me pleasantly surprised. The scrub its self is very effective as an exfoliator and left my hands smelling sweet and candy like. The fragrance smells amazingly exotic, however, if you are sensitive to fragrances, simply use a smaller amount of the scrub.

I am starting to see more and more organic products hit the selves in the beauty departments. I used to be totally against organic because I didn't feel like it would work as well as other products, but as I started to experience organic products and review them I realized I was way wrong! I now have a bunch of organic products I love and can't live without! I have been branching out to look into organic hair care so I can preserve my colored hair better. The only thing I was worried about was the organic hair products not cleaning my hair and it would feel greasy and dirty still.

That's when I discovered the brand Organic Doctor. Products made to utilize only the finest natural and organic raw materials wherever possible. Sourced from around the world, every single ingredient is rigorously tested to ensure it conforms to their strict quality guidelines. Combined with the latest scientific methods of extraction, Organic Doctor products ensure that all active compounds are retained to create products that are truly functional. They never use parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), phthalates or artificial colors!

Organic Doctor Virgin Olive Oil Gift Set ($34.96) – The gift set is a complete range to capture the intense natural nourishment of the Olea Europaea and the protective benefits of Oleic Acid, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. The collection is designed to feed dry or stressed skin back to radiant good health and includes all life’s little luxuries that are essential to looking and feeling naturally gorgeous from head-to-toe. It’s free from all harsh petro-chemicals and additives that can strip the skin of valuable moisture, including parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate. This set uses Pure organic Virgin Olive Oil which is a nutritious and deeply moisturizing fruit oil rich in Oleic Acid, an antioxidant.

Well now that it's August, it will soon be time to transition from summer to fall. Sad, but true. I will try to hold onto summer for as long as I can, (we still have a few solid weeks of summer left), but I will need to start focusing on transitioning my summer products to fall products. Summer skin care is about sun protection (with a little sun tanning), moisturizing, refreshing products, nourishing products, etc. But as we spend less time in the blazing sun, we will want different products for our skin/hair care.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub 8.1.13Scrubs are a great product to keep your skin healthy from summer to fall. When the beach tan starts to fade, a gentle scrub will be very handy! If you have sensitive skin, you might shy away from a scrub, but this week I have one that might just do the trick! Weleda Birch Body Scrub gently exfoliates and smooths your skin. Some key ingredients are: organic birch leaves, vegetable based cleansers (great for sensitive skin), natural plant wax pearls, and organic & natural plant oils. These are skin replenishing ingredients that will help renew your skin, leaving you with soft, radiant skin. Weleda products are "no synthetic anything" - no synthetic preservatives, fragrances, or chemicals. Not only is that great for sensitive skin, but you can really feel good about using Weleda products. I often find it frustrating to learn of all the chemicals, and preservatives that are put into food and skincare, so I really take interest in brands that are dedicated to promoting a healthy skincare lifestyle. 

As for the actual scrub itself, you can apply it with a loofah or your hands in the shower. I just used my hands and massaged in a circular motions. It's not too thick so it's really easy to work with and massage into your skin. The beads were gentle yet still effective to get rid of the dead skin. It was in no way irritating and my skin felt extremely fresh and renewed! I also loved the earthy scent (maybe with a hint of lemon?). I looked forward to using it again, even just for the scent :) Another good bonus, this scrub comes in a tube instead of a jar - which makes it quick and easy to apply in the shower!

This is a great natural body scrub option at $12.00!

Looking for another body scrub? I have't found many that come in a tube like Weleda's (which I find extremely helpful) but I did find an intriguing body scrub from Angel Face Botanicals - Double Love Body Scrub with Himalayan Salt & Organic Lavender Essential Oils at $24.00. This body scrub will help improve the texture and appearance of your skin while also helping you relax with the pleasing lavender esssential oils.

Exfoliating works great for my skin. Its a neccessity. Whether it is summer or winter, I have dry skin that I need to get rid of! I have used exfoliating gloves, moisturizing + exfoliating washes, scrubs, etc., but I never imagined myself exfoliating with a product that contains gold. Well my next product I have to tell you about, contains exactly that...OROGOLD 24K Golden Body Scrub.

Orogold 24K Golden Body Scrub 7.3.13

I have been using this product a number of times this summer and it works flawlessly! Apply this scrub on damp skin, massage into your skin (I usually massage in circular motions) and then rinse! TIP: don't have water running directly over you as the grains won't have a chance to exfoliate as well. But do make sure your skin is damp enough so that the grains do not feel too rough. I have relatively sensistive skin, but did not have any issues using this scrub. This scrub left my skin rejuvenated, nourished (it also contains herbal extracts), smooth, and radiant! It was not at all drying, instead left a moisturizing layer (felt like an oil), and effectivly elimated the dry skin spots. My skin felt fresh and renewed! My skin also looked glowing as the moisturizing qualities really enhanced the whole product! This scrub did extactly what it claimed to do and will be most beneficial this summer!! Glowing skin is always a plus :)

If you have any exfoliating favorites, I would love to hear about them! 

Stay classy,

If you have an office job you know that being a desk jockey involves sitting at a computer for the majority of your day. We are talking about 8 or more hours in one spot, shifting now and then or getting up for a cup of coffee or to heat up lunch and come right back to your desk. The only fitness I get in is if I have to buy lunch next door at the local cafe or if I decide to use my gym membership that keeps taking money out of my account despite my absence. If your anything like me, you hate working out before work because you're not a morning person and by time the end of your work day comes your computer eyes completely sucked up all your energy and you just want to go home... and I'm single, I can't image the working folks that have families and kids and additional responsibilities they have to do after work regardless of their energy level! Hmm... maybe that's why I'm still single? lol. 

Soap & Glory is an amazing brand that I have come to love as soon as I laid eyes on their packaging. First off its pink so that right away its eye catching among the sea of white and neutral toned skin care products. Then they have the most original and captivating product descriptions, such as "Sexy Mother Pucker" lip gloss, "One Night Tanned", "Night In Shinning Armour" cream. The brand is always interactive and consumer friendly which is always much appreciated from a buyers point of view. To me, it shows a company that loves what they do and what they make and keeps beauty fun (the way it is supposed to be)! 

Soap  Glory Flake Away Certified Fabulous 6.5.13

Soap & Glory attracted me with the packaging and fun product names but they definitely won me over as a loyal costumer once I tried the products and they worked! To help me get into bikini shape, yes I know you still need to work out, but to tighten and firm Soap & Glory has my back this summer with the products I grabbed to review! Exfoliation is crucial in the summer as the sun burns out old skin layers and leaves you dry and scaly, not to mention it is the first step to any routine before self tanning! The remedy? Soap & Glory: FLAKE AWAY body polish is defined by them as a "superhero strength skin smoothing body polish" that I found to work wonders to gentle exfoliate my skin and also leave it hydrated and silky smooth after I washed it off! Rubbing body scrub in circular motions also helps with blood circulation and healthy glow and firmness of skin. I scoop up a handful and rub around for a minute or so to properly wash away dirt, grim and dead skin cells and awaken my skin as it contains both salt and sugar! The scent is SO amazing and lingers even after the shower, as well as the softening effect of the shea butter that is also in it to leave you with a touch-worthy texture without the grease! This desk jockey has broken out the summer skirts and dresses to reveal radiant legs :)
