Origins Plantidote Mega Mushroom Face Serum – Is it any good?

June 18, 2009

I am one of the millions of people who suffer from eczema. It’s not too bad at times, but I always get flare ups in the face. Because of this, I’ve taken a liking to all natural skin care products. The lady at the Origins counter swore by this stuff from Dr. Andrew Weil. It’s a face serum that’s made specifically to combat inflammation from a blend of Hypsizygus ulmarius, Cordyceps and Reishi Mushrooms, Ginger, Turmeric and Holy Basil. It’s not cheap as it’s $66  for 1.7 fl. oz.

HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS? I would LOVE LOVE LOVE some feedback!

Bolthouse Juices…. the best “healthy” stuff on Earth!

December 11, 2008

In the last month or so, I have been really making an effort to eat healthier. I’ve been getting fresh veggie juices across the street at the health food store for about $6 bucks a juice. It’s kind of a rip off but they are so delicious that I keep going back. I’m hoping that if I keep up this gluten free, healthy, more veggie diet, my eczema will dramatically disappear. After searching and searching for a juice that won’t break my bank, my coworker turned me onto Bolthouse Farms. Bolthouse Farms is located in my hometown of California – San Joaquin Valley. Started as a commercial farming company, they started to branch out into juices (which they made from their veggies), and many other products like dressings.

I am eager to try these because of all the rave reviews, however, where I live (East Harlem), our grocery stores aren’t that great and don’t carry stuff like this. The health food store does carry them, but I would really love to try the purple carrot juice. Carrot (and green) juice is my favorite, so this seems amazing. Has anyone tried these? What other juices (or other healthy tips) would you recommend?

Lush’s Dream Cream

May 21, 2008

I absolutely love this Dream Cream from Lush. (Well, I love everything except for the price – it’s $22 bucks a pop!) It is VERY mosturizing and contains great ingredients, including Camomile Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Cocoa Butter and more. After a few days it leaves dry skin feeling great, especially those rough spots on elbows and hands. It’s also recommended for people with sore skin or eczema – which is why I use it – it’s all natural. (And it smells great!)

*If you’re hesitant about dropping the big bucks on such a small tub of lotion, you can visit a store and get a free sample to try out!

Dry, Chapped, Irritated Skin Therapy!

April 4, 2008

Maybe you live in city with dry, horrible, relentless weather, like I do in New York City. Maybe you have a skin disorder such as eczema, like I do. Well I’ve done a bunch of research and I’ve come across both of these creams. I don’t really like to use the generic Aveeno or Cetaphil lotions that you find in the stores because I don’t think they have the essential minerals and ingredients that someone like me needs.

Has anyone tried either or both of these? If so, I want your reviews!!! They are both pricey – about $25-$35 bucks for a jar.
