Yes it’s true….live clean has expanded their coconut line to include a moisturizing body wash, moisturizing hand soap, and moisturizing lotion.  Right now I can only speak for the body wash, which is creamy, lightly scented, and absolutely luxurious.

LeEdge-The next generation in Exfoliation. A review and giveaway for Canadians!

Sunday evenings are my night to indulge in all my skin treatments-to include masks, hand & foot care, deep conditioning, and most definitely exfoliation.  I am what I would call a ‘traditional’ exfoliator.  I get my apricot scrub, get in the shower, scrub my body from head to toe, spend time rinsing it all off, and away I go.

I was scrolling through my twitter timeline not too long ago and came upon the LeEdge exfoliation tool.  It looks like this:

And another angle:

Here’s what the website says:

The Le Edge exfoliation tool has a patented “higher than surgical grade” stainless steel gentle edge that removes the top layer of dead skin revealing the younger vibrant living skin beneath. Design based on the ancient skin care tool, the strigil, Le Edge recalls a time when skin care was all natural without the use of chemicals

Ergonomically designed for easy use by all hand sizes, the handle of the Le Edge exfoliator comes with a rubber grip for “non-slip” use in shower or bath. Use Le Edge as a pre-shave to lift ingrown hairs away from the skin, to help with tie rash and other shaving conditions. Use Le Edge to remove your old instant tan application and to exfoliate in preparation for your new tanning session. Exfoliating before waxing or shaving your body helps to even out the skin’s surface allowing for a smoother shave. Use Le Edge exfoliating tool as part of your pedicure routine to maintain clean and beautiful feet.

 

I have used LeEdge for approximately 2 weeks.  I use it mainly before shaving my legs, as I have ingrown hairs.  LeEdge takes care of all of that without me having to apply an exfoliating scrub, and rinse it off.  I find that I have a smoother shave with longer lasting results.  I have also used it on my heels to get rid of my rough dry skin-but I prefer to use my foot file on my feed in the shower.

LeEdge is definitely an interesting tool.  I like the idea of  being able to skip the scrub, and this definitely works to lift the ingrown hairs.  Of course it’s pain free.  It’s in my shower and has gotten into my ‘treatment day’ rotation.  Granted, I still use my scrub but I don’t use it if I am going to shave immediately after.  LeEdge takes care of that for me and produces similar results.

LeEdge has generously offered me an exfoliating tool for one lucky Canadian reader to try!  Please complete the Rafflecopter widget in order to enter. Canadian residents only!

From the Blue House with Love- Green Tea, Lime & Lemongrass natural, handmade soap.

I am not a fan of soap.

When I think of soap, I think of the bars that were dried up and broken into little pieces in the shower.  I would only use bar soap when I was out of my softly scented, luxurious body wash-and would curse it later as I scratched my itchy post-soap skin.

So when my b-i-l gave me these two bars of soap as a gift, I wasn’t overwhelmed with joy about using them.  He mentioned that he knew the person that made the soap-and that she was local, so I thought I would give them a try.

My 2 lovely soaps "From the Blue House with Love"

The soap that I decided to try was the Green Tea, Lime & Lemongrass. It’s a decent piece of soap with a light fragrance that is quite pleasant!

A huge plus for me is the list of ingredients:

A giant PLUS-I can pronounce the ingredients and know what they are!

So I did use the soap this morning and I was pleased with the results! The soap lathered up nicely and wasn’t heavily fragranced.  It rinsed off easily and didn’t leave my skin dry and itchy.  I like that there are 4 different types of oils in the soap AND essential oils!

I stand corrected-a gift I thought I would never used is now in its own soap dish ready for the morning shower!  Good stuff
