School of Wash Review

I was given the chance to do a review on School of  Wash Products.  I was super excited.  For those of that have not heard of SOW let me tell you a bit about them. They make a wide range of bath and body products.  They have a few her, kids, men and for pets line.  You can customize the scents you want.  OMG how fun is that you pick what you want your products to smell like. They only use the highest quality ingredients and make all our products at the time of ordering.  Their Products are – Paraben-free, Talc-free, SLS-free, Sulfate-free, Sodium Chloride-free, FRESHLY made when ordered and contain No Dyes.

I was given a body wash and a body scrub.  I chose the scents Rain and Orchid,  The scents were both very refreshing.  They were light and not overpowering.  It was like being outside and smelling the freshness of flowers and the rain in my own shower.  

The body wash lathered very nicely and the scent was amazing.   I want to go and get a ton more and try so many of their other scents.  

My second item was the body scrub.  This body scrub was a great exfoliate. It was not very harsh just enough to do its job.  I use this all the time now and really enjoy it.  

They have tons of scents to choose from here is a list of some of them. You will have to go to the site to see all the amazing scents they do have here is a short list just to give you an idea. 

 Absinthe = A balance of tonic with a touch of citrus, and a light flowery background.
Acai Berry = Sparkling citrus, raspberry, strawberry, cassis, red currant & melons mixed together on a bed of bubbles.
Almond = Bright, strong nutty almonds just like almond extract.

NAAT Treatment Curly Review

I was given a chance to do a review on NAAT Treatment for Curly hair.  I have natural curly hair.  I usually also make my hair straight.  I have very thick hair. The weight of my hair pulls out my curls and does not stay through out the day.  I was excited to to try these products.  Its much easier for me to have curly hair.  Less drying time and the time to straighten it.

I was given a total of 4 items to use.  I was given a shampoo and conditioner.  Leave in treatment and also a mask.  

The shampoo and conditioner were great.  The shampoo lathers nice and smells nice.  Its not overpowering.  It does have a coconut smell its light and airy.  The scent does last in my hair to make it smell fresh all day long.  The conditioner has the same scent.  Make my hair feel soft and its not freasy or heavy feeling, 

The leave in conditioner works well after my shower I use a little bit and rub in my palms and rub in my hair and comb through and let my hair air dry, 

The mask just gives a nice deep conditioning to my hair.  I put in my hair leave it in for 20 mins I will read a book or check emails and then rinse out.  My hair feels so soft.  I can't stop touching my after its so smooth and silky,

The benefits from these products.

• Tendinitis / Tennis Elbow

• Plantar Fasciitis

• Bursitis

• Sport Strains and Bruises

• Back Pain / Muscle Aches
 My Review:

I had broken my ankle a few years back.  I still have some pain from it.  I have mornings where it hurts to even walk on it.  I usually just deal with the pain and go on with my day.  Its worse on damp or rainy days.  I had started using Ateevia on my ankle and what a difference.  I can wake up not feel the pain that I have in the past,  I would put Ateevia on before bed and could tell a big difference in the morning.  You are to use the Ateevia twice a day.  At first I just did it at night.  I wanted to get the full experience and see if I would notice a difference between using more than once a day.  The first few days I was just using at night, then I started using before bed and in the morning.,  I hardly have any pain at all now.  I can go on with my day.  The only time I feel a bit of pain is still on damp days.  Nothing like it use to be.  I can barely even notice the pain even on the damp days.  

Ateevia is a light brownish color.  It comes in an easy to squeeze tube.  It does have a slight smell nothing horrible.  I can think of what it smells like.  It does not have a overbearing smell and does not have that medicine smell.  It goes on nice and smooth and rubs in easily.

Ateevia is less than $20.00 for a 3oz tube.  If you would like to purchase Ateevia please click here.  If you would like more information on Ateevia then click here.  

I would recommend Ateevia for anyone having any kind of pain.  I can see a big difference I will continue to use for all of my pain that I may have,

Are you a princess?

I was trying to think of a tittle for this OOTD.  On Christmas Eve we were at my boyfriends parents house.  His 3 year old Nephew wanted to see my pictures on my camera.  As we were going through them he saw the picture of my shoe and he says "Are you a pricess?".  I thought it was so cute.  So now he calls my shoes princess shoes.  Later on in the night he went over and got my shoes and as he was running to the door he said  I will go get your pricess shoes.  Then he brings them over and put them on me and then goes stand up.  So I did and then he says come on princess lets go upstairs I want to show you something.  That is how I came up with the tittle for my OOTD.
