picture-1 Alima Pure is fast becoming my favorite makeup.  I totally dig the huge selection of colors they offer.    I must have 97 samples of their eye shadow and a little goes a long way.    I have fun playing with all of the colors and dressing my eyes up to match my mood.  For me this is big.  I’m a neutral girl at heart and generally pick something up to match my brown eyes.   I’ve been trying to be daring and use more color and thankfully, I don’t have to sacrifice my health in order to do that. All of their makeup is free of chemicals and preservatives and are pigmented with mineral colors.

Now Alima Pure has put out their new spring eyeshadow collection and I have to say, I’m loving it!  It makes me long for warmer spring weather and a cute spring outfit.

Get it: You can get your own samples (which are a great size and are rather inexpensive) directly from

One of the last things I ever really thought to replace in my “beauty” cabinet was personal lubricant.  I’ll venture to guess that it may not have crossed your mind either.  But let’s face it, we all have sex and we’ve all used lubricant.  I’m actually somewhat surprised that I didn’t find this stuff sooner as my, err, girly parts tend to be extra sensitive, so I sought out long ago to find something that was less harsh on my skin.   When I look at the ingredients on something conventional, I’m aghast.  “They expect people to put that WHERE?”

Propylene Glycol, parabens, ALCOHOL.  No wonder this stuff was giving me an adverse reaction, because there’s just nothing natural about that stuff.  Gross.   So as a joke, Kathy and I like to find the most ludicrous thing we can think of and see if they make it in an organic version.   And that’s how I stumbled upon Firefly Organics.  I wish I would have found this stuff years ago.   While the name says organics, the product itself is technically not organic, BUT, all the ingredients are completely all natural and preservative free.  There is nary a paraben nor polymer to be found in this bottle.  In fact, Firefly is so safe, that you don’t even have to wash it off if you don’t want to (and really, have you ever tried to wash off conventional lube?  Forget it).

What can I say about this stuff?  I love it.  When I first opened the bottle it reminded me a lot of olive oil.  The feel of it isn’t at all sticky or overly greasy.  A little goes a long way and unlike conventional lubricants, it doesn’t get tacky over time, so you never need more.  The aloe vera soothes so there’s no burning afterward.   This is just an all around great product.   I’ll never use anything else.  And dare I say that it makes me want to get randy more often.  And being pregnant while chasing around a toddler, that’s saying something.

Get it: You can order Firefly Organics directly from their website.  A bottle retails for $18.95, but it’s a big bottle and it should last you a long time.  Unless of course, you party like a rock star.  In which case, better get a few bottles.

Bonus! LovelyMama has one bottle of Firefly Organics to giveaway.   Here’s how to enter:

Send an email to with the subject “Firefly Giveaway” and include the following:

1. Include in your email, your full name AND address.

2. Tell us what you’re currently using and what you like or don’t like about it.

You must complete BOTH steps in order to qualify.  Don’t worry, we don’t sell or give your information to anyone.  Only to contact you if you are the winner.  One winner will be chosen at random.  We’ll accept drawings until Midnight, December 1st. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.   Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of goods as we’re getting close to holiday crunch time.

AlimaOur friends at Fig+Sage are doing a great giveaway of two gorgeous sets of the new Alima Pure Gift Sets they just released for the holidays.  There are 3 sets in total and they all have really beautiful color palettes.  We reviewed Alima Pure not too long ago and we were both really pleased with the products and the natural feel of this line.  Alima released 3 Holiday Gift Sets that are beautifully complimentary without being overly bright.  Very subtle rich colors.

The lovely ladies at one of our favorite organic beauty blogs Fig+Sage are doing a really great giveaway of Earth Mama Angel Baby Breastfeeding Support Kit. We’ve been long time lovers of all the Earth Mama Angel Baby products and their commitment to providing safe products to treat mom and baby. The Breastfeeding Kit they are giving away (in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!) contains Milkmaid Tea , Natural Nipple Butter, Booby Tubes, and Bosom Buddies (a $45 value of products!). You can enter until October 29th, 2008, check out how on their blog Fig+Sage.

Further, if you haven’t seen Fig+Sage yet it’s a great resource and full of eco-fabulous finds!

Here we are at the end of John Master’s week!  I’ve loved sharing these products with you.  But I saved my favorite for last.  And that would be the sweet orange styling gel.   I tend to hate gels or hair spray because of the crunchy factor, but given that my hair is so fine, it’s a necessary evil.  But with this stuff, not only can I run my fingers through my hair if I so desired (I don’t, as I risk looking like Sideshow Bob if I do), but it holds up all day.

When I get out of the shower and start my hair styling routine, I get kind of giddy when it’s finally time to use this because holy mother, it smells so good.  Like fresh clementines.   I have to smell it several times before and during application.  Citrus smells make me happy and energized, so it’s no wonder it’s a staple in my regimen.

My next goal is to invest in the face and skin care products as I seem to have a handle on the hair care products.   They’re all fabulous.  I think you get that right now.  And really, you just want to get to the good stuff.   Like the giveaway details.
