Cleaning Prayers Answered + FREE Caldrea Products for You

InteriorsLibby RasmussenComment

Earlier this month, I made a short list of things I wanted to accomplish in July.  One very important item was to start switching over to more natural and chemical-free cleaning supplies and it's almost as if Grove Collaborative read my mind.  I started using Grove Collaborative a few months ago when I became very frustrated with a lot of the grocery-store, chemical-heavy products.  I didn't feel like I was getting my money's worth. I hated wearing rubber gloves to clean (and save my manicure) and most importantly, I hated the smell. Grove makes it easy for me to get all of the natural products I want, delivered to my door, when I actually want them.  That means, you get your products when you run out or want more. No need to worry about stock-piling up on products. And I'm actually spending less on cleaning supplies than before and saving obnoxious (and expensive) trips to Target.

I first heard about Caldrea in one of Grove's newsletters - which I actually love and read because they have awesome cleaning tips like these:

Caldrea was actually started by the same owner of Mrs. Meyers and was designed to be the luxury line of cleaning products with the same healthy, chemical-free formula. Let me tell you, they smell amazing. And the best part - you can get their Summer Entertaining Kit here FOR FREE here.

While I love all four of the scents: Sea Salt Neroli, Pear Blossom Agave, Ginger Pomelo, and Tangelo Pal Fond, the Ginger Pomelo is my all time favorite. But hey, why just try one? Get them all!

You NEED to Start Ice Rolling Your Skin + Hansderma

Ice what? If you have a freezer, you can start ice rolling sooner than you think. (Make sure to check out my giveaway at the bottom!)
 
We all know what it's like to wake up in the morning with a puffy, red face.  Regardless of how many hours of sleep or martinis you racked up the night before, there really hasn't been a solution to instantly cool and firm your face after waking up, until now. Like so many women, I am no stranger to the old frozen wet spoons trick for my cheeks and under-eye circles.  Now, the first thing I do after getting out of the shower, is ice roll. 

Still confused? Let me break it down a bit more. 

Ice rollers are incredibly popular abroad and have only recently started to gain notoriety in the states.  Often found behind-the-scenes at photo shoots and runway shows, many make-up artists swear by ice rollers to calm the skin. Everything about ice rolling ice simple, right down to the actual roller.  The Hansderma SkinCool Ice Roller I love and use daily is an easy handheld device filled with water and gel.  All I do is take it out of the freezer, and gently roll and massage across my face.  Within seconds of using the ice roller, yes seconds, I can feel my skin tighten and the see the puffiness and redness dissipate. I especially love using it on my under eye circles. I've also started to apply a few drops of my favorite nutrient-rich Glossier serum, on my skin before ice rolling.  The ice roller then evenly spreads the serum on my face and feels absolutely amazing

Men have also found ice rolling beneficial, especially after a close shave to help eliminate razor burn and redness. I've also used my ice roller for the countless times I've bumped my knees on anything and everything in my apartment.  Bye bye bruising.   

I know what you're thinking, this seems completely unnecessary and a bit of a production. I can assure you, that once you try it, it will seem as crucial as brushing your teeth. If you're still skeptical, make sure to check out this article (number 3 could not be more true.) This YouTube Tutorial is also great! 

If you're ready to start your soon-to-be new favorite routine, make sure to snag an Hansderma Ice Roller, for only $30, also sold on Amazon
