Nyl Skincare Foaming Hand Soap

Goddess Huntress | Nyl Foaming Castille Hand Soap

In my bathroom, I have been serving dessert. Totally un-hygenic sounding, but that is definitely not the case.

nyl Foaming Castille Hand Soap is my lemon meringue.  The foam is extremely light, airy, and gentle and it smells as if it has been kissed with a couple lemon drops.  It cleanses hands without stripping moisture with coconut, castor, and sunflower oils along with rosemary, bergamot, grapefruit, and lemongrass.

This also comes in a $5 sample size which is perfect to keep at your office or in your purse to steer clear of the triclosan fest with public bathroom soap.

Ella’s Botanicals Hydrating Lotion

Goddess Huntress | Ella's Botanicals Hydrating Lotion

Since I’ve increased my sweat sessions with daily yoga and infrared treatments, I’ve increased hydration big time.  Not only have I increased my water intake, I’ve amped up my moisturizing.

These sweaty days I’ve been refreshing with Ella’s Botanicals Lavender Bliss Hydrating Lotion.  Avocado, coconut, sunflower, geranium, Vitamin E, and lavender oils hydrate the skin after each shower with an extra antioxidant kick of Japanese green tea.  Ella’s Botanicals Hydrating Lotion is not greasy nor oily, which is a fantastic departure for me since my love affair with body oils has left many of my clothes stained.

Ella’s experience in herbal medicine and aromatherapy is leaving me sighing “ah” and relaxing anti-aging breaths each day.  Lavender Bliss’s scent is just as superb as its moisture.

Hydrate with a sigh of relief HERE.

EWG 2013 Sunscreen Report

Goddess Huntress | EWG 2013 Sunscreen Reportewg2

The EWG’s 2013 Sunscreen Report is here!

It is the creme de la creme sunscreen shopping guide. The EWG does extensive testing of hundreds of sunscreens each year to determine the most effective coverage without the photo-carcinogens (ingredients that transform into carcinogens when exposed to the sunlight such as oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate…so much for “sun protection”, eh?). They test for stability, UVB protection, UVA protection, and last, while going through the ingredients with a fine-tooth comb.

Here is the list of the BEST.

The GH Shop proudly carries COOLA Suncare Sport Moisturizer Classic Sunscreen SPF 45, one of the best on the EWG 2013 list!

Get the best sunscreens with the best coverage without the carcinogens.

The GH Shop is donating 10% of each COOLA Suncare sale to the Melanoma Research Foundation during the month of May. Get protected!
