Pact Organic Underwear

 I like helping the environment in all ways possible. I bet you didn't think you could help the world by changing your underwear. Well, with Pact Organic Underwear you can.

 The folks at Pact sent me a pair of their undies for review. These are some super soft and really really comfortable underwear. Best of all they are made from premium organic cotton that is sustainably grown. Pact ensures there are no pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, chlorine bleaches or other nasty stuff anywhere near their cotton undies.Pact even keeps it's carbon footprint down by making sure every part of the manufacturing process is done within a 100 mile radius .

 Pact gives back too, by donating a portion of the proceeds from each pattern to its designated non profit organization. Artists design each pattern for promoting and supporting their particular cause. For example, the pair I received, Scales Thong,  helps out Oceana.
 The Scales Thong is very well made. The elastic is stretchy and strong. These undies are so comfortable it feels like you aren't wearing any at all.

Description from website:
Oceana, the largest international organization focused solely on ocean and marine conservation, inspired these three prints designed by Yves Behar. A portion of sales from our Save The Sea collection will support Oceana’s work to protect the ocean and recover sea turtle populations affected by the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

And y'all know Hubby found the Vivoderm Foot Cream Cocoa Butter. There were these "Come on Baby " eyes.  Needless to say he got his foot rub. The cream is unscented and softened Hubby's feet very well. No greasy feel, left Hubby's feet feeling great.

Foot Cream Cocoa Butter Cocoa butter, Soothing

A highly effective treatment for cracked, dry and tired feet. The moisturizing foot cream’s rich and thick texture leaves feet soft, smooth and fresh. The soothing cocoa butter foot cream works very well as diabetic foot cream.
If you have dry, cracked and tired feet, this super moisturizing and rich foot cream is perfect.

 I tried out Vivoderm Intense Moisturizer on my face as well as my hands after coming in from working in the hay field. It has a subtle clean scent that is comforting and relaxing. Puts lots of moisture into my skin. Slighty oily feel but you can still open a door knob so it's not too slippery.

Intense Moisturizer For very dry, dehydrated, tired skin.

 This cream is designed to quench very dehydrated skin. A combination of soothing plants, vitamins, anti-oxidants and minerals penetrate the skin to return moisture to it for up to twelve hours while adding a fresh glow.
This natural rejuvenating blend contains the traditional healing and regenerating power of nature for a softer, smoother, healthier looking complexion. Even the driest complexions are healed and aging lines and wrinkles become noticeably less visible after using the intense facial moisturizing cream.

Weekends are the time for cleansing masks at my house. Last weekend I tried out Vivoderm's Anti Aging Mask You get to add the water to this powdered mask. Careful that you add the water slowly til you get the hang of mixing your batch. This mask is cool and refreshing and leaves your face feeling fantastic.

Anti Aging Mask 100 % Herbal 100% Magic

This miraculous mask is 100% natural and herbal and contains absolutely no preservatives or chemicals. Its microscopic texture allows for the absorption of vitamins and enzymes from the herbs into the skin. After application, your skin’s circulation dramatically increases, stimulating regeneration, rejuvenation and repair. You will notice the immediate difference on your skin after the first use. Often, you will experience temporary tingling and rosiness of the skin; due to increased circulation. To allow their natural and unrefined properties to be maintained, we use the actual herbs in the anti-aging mask.
The secret to this formula, is the delicate mixture of the herbs in the exact amounts and their synergetic interaction with each other. This natural mixture exfoliates dead skin cells, to reveal beautiful, radiant, soft skin while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time it protects against future skin damage. This natural anti-aging mask refines the appearance of enlarged pores, purifies your skin, removes black heads and minimizes sun, acne and pregnancy spots. The anti aging mask increases your skin’s resilience, firmness and freshness.
Brings your skin back to life, diminishes lines and discolorations. Use 2 to 3 times a week.

Vivoderm also has a Anti-acne Facial mask This is another great mask that has the additional benefit of fighting acne.

Anti Acne Facial Mask 100% Natural 100% Beautiful

This miraculous mask is 100% natural and herbal and contains no preservatives or chemicals. Acne begins with an enlarged hair follicle, commonly known as a pore, plugged with oil, dead skin and bacteria. As the skin continues to produce more oil, bacteria flourish and are trapped within the swollen follicle, forming acne.
We have formulated this product to penetrate the skin, unplug pores, and create an outlet for impurities. In addition we use herbs with natural antiseptic properties to attack acne causing bacteria. This anti-acne treatment removes dead skin cells and repairs blemishes without drying out the skin. The result is smooth, clear blemish free skin.
Used to exfoliate skin and fight against acne. Use 2 to 3 times a week.

 Vivoderm Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream comes in a solid that glides around the eye easily. Not sure how to describe the fragrance. The lavender, lemongrass, almond oil and bees wax blend beautifully.

Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream
Vitamin Rich, Hydrating

The soft skin around your eyes is particularly vulnerable to stress, time and the harmful effects of the environment, thereby requiring special gentle care from you. The Vivoderm natural eye cream is infused with exotic herbs, plants, minerals and a variety of vitamins such as vitamins A and E.
The anti-aging eye cream protects, hydrates, repairs and dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It delivers a boost of moisture to the delicate skin around the eyes.

  I dabbed a bit of Vivoderm's Zinc Repairing Facial Cream on a blemish that I had. By the next day their was almost no evidence that the blemish was ever there. Day after it was gone.

Zinc Repairing Facial Cream Replenishing, Rebuilding

Made with 15% pure mineral Zinc Oxide, his water-based, natural facial cream is infused with Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and the anti-inflammatory properties of Chamomile and Comfrey. The Vivoderm Zinc Cream maintains the skin’s moisture while diminishing the visible signs of aging and reducing acne breakouts. Zinc Oxide, the active ingredient of this cream is essential for tissue growth and healing. It is a natural antiseptic and anti-bacterial agent which helps fight acne causing bacteria.

Zinc naturally balances the production of the oil in the skin, making it very effective in the prevention and treatment of acne. As a physical sun block, it naturally protects against UVA and UVB light and can be used as a natural, non-toxic sunscreen.

Replenishes and rebuilds, regulates oil production, sun protection. For normal to oily skin. Use morning and evening.
 Chamomile Body Butter is the generous prize that Vivoderm has offered the winner of this sweepstakes. I love the smell of this one. Very Calming. Feels really nice on the skin. Made my skin super soft.

 Finding the right jewelery to accessorize your outfit is a must. Being able to afford really classy looking jewelery on a normal salary is a rare find. Town Square Jewelry is a really great way to get exactly the right piece that is custom fit for you and at a price you can afford.

 I was sent a beautiful 14K Gold Soldered French Rope Bracelet for review. My bracelet arrived in a very nice black jewelry case with a pretty metallic red rose embossed on the top. Very nice for gift presentation. And get this y'all the gift box and message gift card are free with your purchase.

 The bracelet itself is very classy looking. The clasp on this one is a lobster clasp.  I like these because they make it harder to loose your jewelry. Town Square Jewelry also has magnetic clasps available for those who might have trouble putting on and taking off their own jewelry. This is really nice for those with arthritis or the like.


 My bracelet looks really expensive on . The gold is layered so the price isn't near what you would think it would be. I like that the chain has some weight to it. I really like that the golden spiral catches the light perfectly giving the look of elegance.
