Monday, August 5, 2013 by Courtney K

We redid our floors to match our cat.Have you seen our blog post on 50 Ways To Use Coconut Oil? I haven't tried all of them, but I do love cooking with it and using it in smoothies. It does work as a shaving cream, but leaves a bit of a mess behind when you're done. The post lists both sunscreen and tanning oil as uses and both seemed to work: after 5 1/2 hours biking in the July sun, my legs weren't burnt, so that's cool.

Great. Well, you know what? I would be too if that were part of the demands of my job.

I recall the exact moment when the word “beauty” evolved into something far more important than simply having my hair done in the most posh style or maintaining a petite figure. I was staying with a...

I must admit that when I was asked to try Swanson Health Products’ new argan oil products, I was a bit skeptical. After all, I haven’t switched hair care or lotion brands in years and I wasn’t sure if my hair and skin would be okay with change (even though I knew it is good to rotate shampoos). I was given Swanson Premium’s Argan Oil shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner spray, night cream and hand lotion to try. Two of the products, the leave-in conditioner spray and the hand lotion, are...

Monday, November 12, 2012 by Tara Kessler

You may be familiar with the old wives tale about rotating shampoo brands periodically because hair gets “used to" one brand and it then becomes ineffective. While we all know that hair is not alive—and cannot remember the last shampoo we used—there is a valid reason for rotating brands.
