Ideal for all skin types
A very light moisturising cream ina very aesthetically pleasing packaging.
The jar is clear plastic with silver lining, making the product appealing at the same time giving it a professional/clinical feel.
Once opened, the cream is a soft apricot color with a slight citrus scent reminding me of other Vitamin C or anti-oxidant products.
The cream is very light and absorbs into the skin easily, leaving the skin feeling silky, soft and hydrated. Despite the light feel of the cream, it gave my skin adequate hydration. Although I didn’t notice any difference in my skin after using this product, it was a pleasure to use and I’m happy to recomend it to ones looking for a good Quality moisturiser.

What Star Rating will you give this product based on your experience with it? (Out of 5)
The heart beats, flutters, pounds, pumps, races and does so much more!
Yet how much thought do you give this much loved organ in your body?
Did you know that your heart beats 60 to 100 times a minute? This time of the year when we are all thinking about our hearts desire, it is fitting to take a few minutes to make sure the heart stays healthy and keeps beating, pounding and fluttering for many more years to come!
The heart is a major organ in maintaining overall good health. It delivers oxygen and nourishment to all parts of the body then removes the waste products. This circulatory function is what contributes to our good health and keeps us alive.
There is much we can do to help the heart along.
An active, balanced lifestyle along with a good diet rich in anti-oxidants will help maintain your health and aid your circulation. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals – harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cell death. Free radicals are believed to contribute to aging as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.
Some of these anti-oxidants are:
• Grapeseed – Studies show grape seed extract substantially increase levels of antioxidants in the blood. It is estimated to be twenty times stronger than Vitamin E and fifty times stronger than Vitamin C.
• Coenzyme Q10 – This naturally occuring vitamin-like compound is found in the highest amounts in the part of the cell where energy is created. CoQ10 levels are highest in the hardest working tissues of the body, especially in the heart. As we get older, the amount of CoQ10 that the body produces decreases especially in people that suffer from heart disease, and low levels of this compound means that the heart does not have the energy that it needs to keep it running normally.
• Hawthorn – Well know for the cardiac benefits it provides, including improved coronary artery blood flow as well as improved blood flow in the extremeties.
Based on evidence provided by clinical trials it has been confirmed that
hawthorn extracts benefit individuals with early-state congestive heart failure.
• Vitamin E – Acts as a powerful antioxidant by neutralizing free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage. Vitamin E also contributes to a healthy circulatory system and aids in proper blood clotting and improves wound healing. It is the body’s major fat-soluble anti-oxidant.
• Vitamin B12 – This very important nutrient helps support higher energy levels, emotional stability, mental clarity and more. Vitamin B12 has also been associated with lower homocysteine levels which helps lessen the risk of heart disease and help support the health of the coronary arteries.

There are some other things that are not of the health-care nature but will make the heart just as happy. These are equally important for the maintenance of good health and a happy life! (Click on Product Name for More Information)

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème – 123g, $21.95
Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème smoothes, softens and moisturises rough, dry and calloused skin on the feet. Coconut oil, olive oil and lanolin all work to deeply moisturise the skin, leaving it supple and healthy, while vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil condition skin and assist with its repair. Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème is 99.4 per cent natural.
The environmentally-friendly tube contains 42 per cent post-consumer recycled plastics and can be recycled again.
Apply the cream liberally to the rough and dry skin on the feet, massage and cover with cotton socks.
What were your first impressions of the Foot Creme when you used it?
I liked the size and shape and the “matt” feeling of the tube, especially knowing it was recyclable. The cream was heavier and stickier and had a much stronger smell than I expected.
How did you find the application and use of the Foot Creme?
I found it fairly unpleasant to apply as it was so “gluggy”. Wearing socks over it was essential, but I personally found that made my feet feel hot and sticky and uncomfortable to wear all night. However, it certainly did moisturise and soften my feet.
How did you find the texture and smell of the Foot Creme?
I found the texture a bit too sticky and the smell of coconut and oils rather overpowering – however my dog loved it. I literally had to fight him off to stop him licking my feet and hands while I was trying to apply it!
As a moisturiser and softener it worked better than a number of others I have used, but I prefer not to have to wear socks overnight, even if it takes longer to work.
Out of five, what star rating would you give this Foot Creme based on your experience with it?
We all like to present our best and most attractive selves to the world no matter what activity we are involved in. Part of this image is how we smell. Due to this fact, the personal care and perfume industry is on the constant quest to produce fragrances that will affect our moods and emotions in a positive way.
It has long been accepted that our sense of smell greatly influences our moods, emotions, memories and even our attractiveness to the opposite sex. Women especially are highly sensitive to smells particularly around ovulation however not all smells produce a positive response.
Widely publicised research findings on female sensitivity to male pheromones have shown that fresh male sweat such as during exercise is very attractive, stimulating sexual desire in women. However the same is also true of males who find the natural scent of women arousing, heightened by slight perspiration. This comes with a word of caution as sweat that has been oxidised or sat on the skin for a while is a positive turn off to both sexes.
So while you don’t want to completely eradicate your natural odour, you want to enhance it with a complimentary perfume that will not only be appealing to the opposite sex but also improve your own emotions and mood! Wearing pleasant fragrances on a daily basis have been shown to reduce mood disturbances such as tension, depression, anger, fatigue and confusion. This in turn will give you a personal sense of well-being, a better frame of mind and self-esteem, good humour and self confidence all of which inevitably will be more attractive to a potential partner.
Different scents affect us in different ways. A light, fresh fragrance can lighten the mood and refresh us; a deeper, more classic perfume can evoke a feeling of sophistication and elegance. Some aromas are designed to produce a tranquil effect, a calming and soothing feeling; other perfumes are designed to smell like the outdoors or a floral garden. Smells are a very personal preference because they are so closely linked to our memories. So while one smell evokes a peaceful feeling in one person it can have the opposite affect on someone else depending on the memories associated with it.
Overall sweeter, tasty, homely smells rate the highest amongst men when asked their preferences. Fragrances that contain ingredients such as Vanilla, Chocolate, Cinnamon and Citrus smells tend to evoke deep seated emotional memories of home, being safe and secure, carefree and fun filled days. Smelling them helps the guys relax, feel safe and secure enough to let their attraction and affection show.
As fragrances and smells are so closely linked to emotions and memories it is likely that you will choose a perfume that will most closely resemble the smells of past occasions. Therefore the chosen perfume can set the mood for any occasion, not just in a romantic way, but also in a peaceful and familiar way.
So don’t be afraid, let loose and play with scents when the mood strikes and choose a different perfume for all the important occasions in your life.
