Natural and Affordable Beauty Products from Oz Naturals

Sample sent for feature

As a Blogger who aims to bring you products that are safe and natural it is important for me to be selective. Many products are safe, but also contain unnecessary ingredients that can actually enhance skin issues or damage skin. Some contain all natural ingredients but cost a fortune. Then there are the products that don’t keep the environment or social responsibility in mind especially when it comes to food or beauty products. Oz Naturals is a brand I can say has all you want in beauty products.

Oz Naturals uses safe and natural ingredients, keeps the environment in mind and is cost effective. I have been using the Oz Naturals Super Youth 2.5 Retinol Moisturizer. It has the clinically-proven ingredient of retinol for anti-aging and youthful skin with a moisturizer containing antioxidants and Vitamin A for the wrinkles and fine lines you want to diminish. This is a great last step in your beauty routing as a moisturizer before applying your make up. The price? Under $30 and you can get the Oz Naturals product line on Amazon and is a Prime qualifier. 

Oz Naturals prides itself on such natural ingredients that are so effective and don’t cost a fortune. You can count on the following from their products:
  • Natural and plant-based
  • Cruelty Free – no animal testing!
  • Alcohol Free
  • Sulfate Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Paraben Free – no toxic or synthetic chemicals!
  • Made in the USA in an FDA registered facility

Head on over to Oz Naturals website and take a look. You can find sunscreen, face masks, serums, cleansers and more of natural and environmentally-safe beauty products.

So Cozy Cinch Safe and Effective Kids Hair Care

Samples sent for feature

Happy Back to School! Depending on your household that’s either a good thing or a bad thing. I work at the High School so back to school for the boys means back to work for me. Now this year is a bit more simple for me in a few ways. Our oldest lives on his own and works. The middle son is done with primary school and we take him across state to college next month so I am sadly left with one boy in the home heading into 3rd grade. That is a pretty independent age so my mornings are typically smooth. The other little plus is with boys I never have hair issues-no tangles in the morning or braids to do or undo. No tears when running brushes through the hair. I remember all those moments when I was younger with my long, fine hair. 

The So Cozy Cinch collection takes care of the hair so you can focus on the rest of your morning routine. How does it take care of the hair? It uses safe and effective ingredients you feel good about using on your family and it is effective. I gave my detangler and conditioner to a friend who’s daughter is almost 3 and hair is wild. It tames her mane with ease and smells so good too. Because it’s available at Target, Buy Buy Baby, Bed Bath and Beyond, CVS and online retailers you can actually locate this product and get it into your home on your next set of errands. 
  1. 3 in 1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash: does it all. It has a blend of mango, mandarin and kiwi leaves with a burst of peach and wild musk with keratin, soy protein, silk amino acids, kiwi fruit extract and other fruit complexes that cleans and conditions hair and skin
  2. 2 in 1 Shampoo + Body Wash: this combines a twist of pink guava and tropical greens with passion flower and pineapple. It has the same key ingredients as the 3 in 1 only it uses hops extract and arnica flower instead of the citrus complexes.
  3. Super Hydrating Conditioner: It is very lightweight and nourishing with ripe berry and a hint of vanilla with jojoba oil and lemon, orange and pure sugar cane
  4. Detangler + Leave-In Conditioner: this is for those tangle-free mornings you dream of. you spray, comb in and head out the door. it has fruit blends and jasmine and vanilla for a great aroma. 
So Cozy products have no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol, formaldehyde, gluten, wheat, peanut OR tree nuts. How is that for a list of no-no’s respected within these products? Make sure to visit for more collections and visit them on Facebook and Instagram.

Cilio keeps you cool anywhere you go

Sample sent for feature

On those hot days anything to cool you down is a blessing from the heat. We have large portable A/C units in our home-one upstairs and one downstairs- but it only keeps a general area cool. The other bedrooms upstairs get so hot and we use fans but sometimes it is still too hot for proper sleep. My son heads off to college next month and I hear the dorm rooms get real muggy so he gets to take Cilio with him.

I like to keep cool towels and we have a lot of water cooled in the fridge but I had not thought about keeping hand fans available even for my youngest son. Mainly because I figured he’d damage a finger touching the spinning blades. Cilio is a fan I can get for everyone, even the 8 year old.
Cilio is a fun personal fan with one speed that has flexible rubber blades that stop immediately with contact to anything including fingers. It comes with the 2AA batteries requited so it is ready to use right away. He spins some serious cool breeze and it makes cilio a great hot day friend. Cilio comes in orange, blue, green and pink colors. At under $9 a fan you can stock up so everyone in the family has a cool breeze whenever they need it. Find your Cilio at Frieling Fresh Solutions.
