Gift Guide for your Girlfriends : SCRUBZ - CLOSED -

Thursday, February 25, 2010


This product would be a perfect gift for your mom, your friend or your cousin.
As part of a woman's beauty regime Exfoliation is one of the key to healthy younger looking skin. It becomes important as you age. Since exfoliation increases cell turnover, the skin appears and feels tighter and more polished. How do you exfoliate? why, by scrubbing of course!
Scrub function by removing old cells to produce a smooth and refreshed skin surface. I like scrubs and have been using scrub in alternate with my all-natural soaps. I've tried salt scrubs before, I've also tried scrubs made from natural buffers such as oatmeal or coffee but one thing I've always curious is what would Sugar Scrub feels like? I've heard about sugar scrubs before but never had the experience to try it. So when Scrubz sent me one of their sugar scrubs I just can't wait to try it.

I'm so happy when I received this package from Scrubz:

Scrubz is a sugar scrub with no preservatives, no color additives, and no alcohol. It's all natural sugar scrub so it's safe enough to use everyday.
Inside the parcel they sent me my choice of Scrubz and they also include a mini jar of their Whipped Body Butter called Butterz. Scrubz body scrub is packed with refined sugar as natural exfoliant which has been known to help refine, tone and tighten skin as well. Other essentials and natural oils that are packed-in with the refined sugar are:

  • Coconut-Supreme oil which helps to keep skin tissue strong and supple and aids in the prevention of wrinkling and sagging. It also has anti-oxidant properties.
  • Olive oil which help prevent dry skin conditions and eczema, and is a mild anti bacterial agent. It also contains natural Vitamin E and other anti-oxidants.
  • Vitamin E oil which help decrease the effects of psoriasis, erythema, and may help in reducing the risk of skin cancer. It also helps reduce scarring from wounds and the appearance of stretchmarks.
  • Canola oil which offer skin barrier-repair and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Jojoba oil which helps unclog pores and lifts grime and embedded impurities. It also helps to control acne.
  • Aloe Vera oil which aids in the healing of wounds and treatment of sunburn. It also used to help relieve arthritis pain, improve blood circulation, reduce scarring, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Grapeseed oil which has mild astringent qualities to help tighten and tone. It also has regenerating and restructuring properties as well.
  • Soybean oil has revitalizing and emollient properties as well as anti-oxidants that helps in preventing premature aging. It also have the properties to give back the flexibility and elasticity of the skin.
  • Shea Butter which helps in moisturizing dry skin, reducing the appearance and condition of eczema, psoriasis, soothing sunburns and rashes, reducing inflammation, helps control acne & other skin blemishes.
  • Essentials and Fragrance oil, either or both are used for scenting. The scent oils all meet or exceed RIFM standards and are of the highest grade and finest available.
Now with all those benefits who wouldn't want to try one? After looking on their many options of scents I finally chose the Chocolate Dreamz. This one is from their Seasonal and Holiday selections.

What I notice immediately is how wonderful the scent is. I love the scent! It's not overwhelming but it's enough to make you want to take a bath immediately ^o^
The scent is more of a sweet chocolate cake and it's so wonderful I declare it my most favorite scent right now :)


What I like most about sugar scrub is it doesn't feel harsh on your skin like salt scrub or coffee scrub but instead it feels very smooth against the skin and it dissolves quickly so there's no need to harshly rub your skin to get the oils out like some of the scrubs I've tried before. I also love that it comes with a little spoon to scoop the sugar scrubs in the jar. Most of the scrubs offered in the market doesn't come with mini spoon or a scoop which makes it a little bit harder for us to scoop it with our wet hands while in the shower, so the mixing scoop is a plus here.

What else do I like about Scrubz? Well, Scrubz is actually a 4 body products in one! Other than as a body scrub it also can be used for facial scrub, as a pre-shave shaving oil and as a moisturizer! You see, when the sugar is washed away, the remaining natural oils are left as a moisturizer. I also tried it as a shaving oil. I used it pre-shave and it does allow me to have a very smooth shave, i have never experienced a smooth shave like that before. Apparently it helps the hair follicle to stand away from the skin surface to allow for a closer shave, and the remaining natural oils that was left after washing the sugar are automatically used as a shaving oil, this is so much better that using a traditional shaving cream.

As for the Citrus Butterz by Scrubs which was also sent to me, it's made from pure shea butter whipped with special blend of natural oils for a silky skin loving cream. I love the texture of the body butter, it sinks right in and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. It also makes my hands feel smooth and the scent lasts for a long time. But since I'm not a fan of Citrus so i don't use this often, but i still carry it everywhere because I like to remove unwanted odor (like after eating crabs or seafood using hands) by just applying it after washing my hands (citrus is known to eliminate odor).

There are also a lot of scent variant to choose from on their website, from woodsy & minty to unscented. The price? Their 2 oz. Oilz retail for $8 while their 4 oz. Scrubz is $9.


SWEET DEALS:
Enjoy a good 15% OFF at their website with code "TIGERLILY".

Gift Guide for Kids: SPREAD HEADS

Tuesday, February 16, 2010




I never thought that eating could be this fun! All the kids would definitely love it. Heck, even a grown-up like myself couldn't help having fun with it ;p This is a perfect gift idea for your kids or for the little ones in your life (your niece, nephews, your friend's kids, etc) because you'll know they'll love it.

I'm talking about Spread Heads. Before you ask what's Spread Heads is I will tell you about Charlie, Marvin, Oscar and Pete who will be your kids best friends. Charlie, Marvin, Oscar and Pete comes from The Black Lab Products. They're a total fun, hilarious, colorful, cool and awesome, and would make meal time and brushing teeth more merrier. Let's meet them now, shall we?

Say hello to:

Mustard Marvin & Ketchup Charlie


Toothpaste Pete & Toothpaste Oscar

There they are and what do you think of them? Cute and awesome, don't you think? Let's not forget that they come with "special abilities" that would make the kids (or your inner child) smile widely or laughing heartily ;p Do you want to know what their "special abilities" are? Well, here's the amazing things they can do:

Ketchup Charlie has the ability to pump red blood ketchup from his nose:


Mustard Marvin is capable of puking squeezing mustard out of his mouth:


While Toothpaste Oscar and Toothpaste Pete have a "special power" of excreting toothpaste from their tongue:


Now that you have met them don't you wanna have them in your house too? :)
Spread Heads are toppers for your condiment bottles and toothpaste tubes. You just simply attach them to the bottles/toothpaste head for added fun in your daily routines. Just remember to replace the condiment bottle toppers with the original bottle cap for storage to prevent contamination. Spread Heads have been featured in several of US TV shows, including one of my fave TV show "Rachael Ray"!
The Spread Heads would add fun and lots of smiles in your household, Ketchup Charlie and Mustard Marvin would be a great addition for burger or hotdog time while the Toothpaste Heads (Oscar & Pete) would be great to encourage kids to brush their teeth (you know how sometimes kids hate brushing teeth). The Spread Heads are easy to clean too and fits most toothpaste and US ketchup/mustard bottles.

So if you're looking for a perfect gift for kids or for a family that have little children then opt for Spread Heads. Oh, and cool goofy grown-ups might love it too ;)



GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
One of you very lucky reader will get all 4 Spread Heads just like mine above!
That includes: One Ketchup Charlie, one Mustard Marvin, one Toothpaste Oscar & Toothpaste Pete!

Gift Guide for Your Family: BORED.Inc

Thursday, February 11, 2010




Bored Inc.

Doesn't the name intrigue you? I received a cute parcel a week ago from Bored Inc. I think it was the cutest parcel I've ever received! Because it's not just another ordinary white envelope bag but it's covered with cute marker drawings all over! It also had cute stickers adorning the envelope! I love this kind of personal touch, I recommend you shop at Bored Inc especially when you're shopping for gifts because the person who receive it will definitely get an extra smile from this:



Bored Inc is a mother & daughter team from Los Angeles. Their goal with Bored Inc is to create products that make your everyday life a little bit cuter. And most of their art is inspired by their love of super kawaii Japanese character art (kawaii means cute in japanese). That explains why I love their designs so much, because I myself is a fan of japanese kawaii characters.

Bored Inc has many unique items to choose from, you can shop for your whole family there. They have cute onesies, kids & youth tees, men & women tees, purse & tote bags, jewelry, magnets, wall decals, cards, etc... The designs they offer are also unique and awesome, a bit edgy and whimsical but looks very cool and awesome :D
I was lucky enough to review one of the many wall decals they offered at their site. This one is called "Mod Flowers - Large Gold":


Not only they make the parcel looks cute on the outside, but inside they also include a sweet note on a pink paper adorned with cute monkey pics. They also include two colorful Bored Inc cards.

I actually had a hard time choosing an item to review from their website because there are several things that I covet there but then my hubby came in and when I asked him to choose he chose this mod Flowers wall decals for our bedroom. Good choice hubby, because it match the yellow, green & brown color theme in our bedroom. It also match our sheets and bedcover flower print.
And when we saw the decals, it actually surprised us because it exceed our expectation. We were surprised with the very good quality of it. The size is very generous (I thought it would be medium-small but it's medium-big! I love it!) and the color is beautiful, it's bright and bold not pale and cheapy (cheapy?is that a word?;p). It looks very lively! We love it!

The material is of good quality too. It's thick (but not that thick) with a smooth surface and it comes with a detailed instructions. The set include 3 large flowers, 3 sets of leaves & 4 stems. You can arrange for how tall you want the stems to stand or how you would place the flowers and leaves, it's up to your imagination. I put mine in a shorter to taller order, I got the inspiration from the website:



Bored Inc is a perfect place to shop for gifts for your family, you could buy your husband a cool tee, a cute cool jewelry for your teenage girl, a "poop" totebag for yourself or a colorful wall decals for your kid's room. As I mentioned above they have many wonderful decals to choose from, they even have many decals-set options too. If you're decorating your kid's room there are plenty of colorful decals-set to choose from. And here are some of my fave things from Bored Inc:





Fab wall decals:





The shopping experience at Bored Inc has been fun. From browsing and picking the items to fast action and attentive emails from the lovely Courtney, the daughter of the mother-daughter duo of Bored Inc. She represents what a good customer service should be. She's also very kind in offering a giveaway for my lovely readers! Yeay!


GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
Win a free item of your choice! Pick any item on their store!
Thanks so much to Courtney who has offered this prize to one very lucky TB reader.

Gift Guide for Sisters or Besties: SWEET LEAF BATH Co - CLOSED -

Tuesday, February 9, 2010


Here we go, the third post of Tigerlily's Book Guide to "Gifts For Your Loved Ones". This is my first blog event so make sure you subscribe or follow my blog to follow this event.


We cover Gift Idea for the men in your life last week and gift idea for the besties or sister on the previous post. Realizing that you might have more than one sister or bestfriends then this time I have another Gift Idea that might be perfect for them.



It's a mother-daughter company from Canada who started first in a kitchen where they would create for family and friends to test body scrubs, butters and bath soaks and then much to their excitement, everyone raved. Today the girls still handcraft everything in small batches, continuing to design new products using pure essential oils, botanicals and fair trade ingredients which is certified by TransFair Canada.

Their products range from handmade soaps, body butter, body scrubs, bath soaks, bath balms & lip balms. But right now I want to specifically talk about one of their body balm product which is Foot Butter.

Okay, let's face it, we used our foot everyday and without realizing that they might be tired of all those walking, running or sports. That makes me realize that my foot might long for those treat (and yours might need it too ;p). I'm so blessed to have a husband that is so kind and attentive whose willing to massage my feet & foot sometimes when I feel so tired but when he's not around or when he's too tired himself I thought I could use some simple at-home-spa for my feet. Waking up with gorgeous foot is what I sometimes dreamed of ;)

Luckily for me, Sweet Leaf Bath sent me their Sweet Relief Foot Butter to review. And it comes with a Moisturizing Spa Socks. Perfection!



The ingredients of this Foot Butter is: Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Tapioca Starch, Vitamin E, Essential Oils of Fennel, Peppermint & Spearmint.
Hmm, my kind of favorite ingredients! I'm loving all natural & organic skincare (not only skincare but everything else) these days because I think now it's the right time to turn your habit to a more healthier lifestyle, and what more is saving the environment.

As I mentioned above, all Sweet Leaf Bath products are FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED which means a promise to sustainable livelihoods and opportunities for people in the poorest countries in the world. This also means that the products were made by people whose rights are protected.
I prefer to shop in these kind of stores, what I mean is stores that gives back to the world whether through donation, eco-friendly ingredients/manufacturing, ethically produced or Fair Trade Certified. I hope you follow my footsteps too. And Sweet Leaf Bath is one of those shops that you must visit (and shop from).

So back to my experience, I used the Sweet Relief Foot Butter every day at night before I go to sleep. The texture is buttery and was absorbed quickly by my skin. I massage it on my foot and then put on the cotton socks provided. The scent has a subtle mint to it, my hubby loves the smell and he's even wondering if he would ever get the chance to try it too (because right now I'm hogging the Foot Butter & Spa Socks every night) ;p. Sorry hubby, you'll get your chance soon honey ^__^

I have been satisfied with the result of using it every night because when the morning comes my foot would feel so moist and smooth & soft to the touch. Since I always have a problem with dry & un-appealing foot so this Foot Butter & cotton Spa socks have been my savior. I love the feel of my foot now and the socks is quite comfortable to wear too.

So if you have any best friend or sister that walks a lot or always seems to have a busy day or have a dry foot, etc you might wanna get them this Foot Butter set. And if you wanna get them something else you can also find other handmade body care products in Sweet Leaf Bath website. Or if you wanna get yourself a prize why don't you award yourself with one or two (or a handful!) of Sweet Leaf Bath products? You know you'll feel good about your body afterward ^o^


GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
The lovely Stacey (daughter of the mother-daughter duo of Sweet Leaf Bath Co) has generously offer one lucky TTT readers a Free Sweet Relief Foot Butter with moisturizing Spa Socks - just like mine! :D
