New Natural Brand “be Delectable” from Cake Beauty

be Delectable

be Delectable is a new collection of bath & body products from Cake Beauty that will be sold at Kohl’s stores across the USA and online at kohls.com.

Made with all natural ingredients, these uniquely formulated bath and beauty products come in some very decadent scents including Strawberry & Cream, Lemon & Cream, Coconut & Cream, and Vanilla & Cream. Of course, the sweet packaging makes these products a bit irresistible! Choose from body polish, body wash, body mist, hand cream and body lotion.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the Coconut & Cream products and I have to say, my entire family fell in love. My almost 7 year old daughter is obsessed with everything cupcakes, so naturally, she was immediately smitten upon seeing the cute bottles and graphics. My son who is almost 4 years old, loves anything coconut so he was eager to try the lotion. (He LOVES putting lotion on his feet.) My husband, who usually doesn’t like coconut, surprisingly has been using the hand cream every single night. Of course, I am happy with all the products and could never resist anything coconut scented either. We all love coconuts!

be delectable

The part I like the best about this new line is that on top of smelling absolutely heavenly, it’s made with all natural ingredients. Be Delectable is as good for your skin as for the environment. Their luxurious formulas are never tested on animals and are made with up to 95% natural products. Best of all, they are free of Parabens, Sodium Chloride, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, GMOs, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Gluten and Triclosan. Yay!

Be sure to look for be Delectable products next time you are in Kohl’s or head over to kohls.com. Good luck picking just ONE scent to try! I think you are going to want to try all four decadent scents…

Products range in price from $10 – $14. Find out more at CakeBeauty.com

Soothe and Heal Dry Winter Skin Before Spring!

curel heals hands

How can you even think of cheery summer colors, sandals and lightweight dresses when your skin has “WINTER” written all over them?! Start the healing process with Hand & Cuticle Therapy ($6) from Curél.

Washing my hands constantly and using hand sanitizer all winter long has really done a number on my poor little hands. They have never been this bad! I’ve tried to keep them moisturized but it’s hard to remember with everything else that is going on. I’m ready to start some intensive therapy on these puppies though and I’m going to be slathering this Hand & Cuticle Therapy on my hands 2x a day for the next few weeks to see if I can get my hands back into shape in time for Spring!

Get It: Drugstore.com, Target.com and Target Stores, Walgreens.com and Walgreens Stores, and Walmart.

Being pregnant and all, it’s getting challenging to reach my toes to give them the TLC they deserve. I’m going to make an effort for the next few weeks though so they will be ready for sandals by the time warmer weather gets here! Curel’s Intensive Healing Cream ($12) promises to deliver moisture quickly and efficiently. Sounds like exactly what I need. It proposes to heal even the driest and most chapped skin. Perfect for toes, ankles and heels. Sign me up!

Topricin

My other challenge has been lower back pain, which I’ve been using Topricin for. It’s a pain relief AND a healing cream that not only provides soothing relief to uncomfortable dryness of the skin on the face, hands and feet but it also provides rapid healing and relief for symptoms associated with Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Calluses and dry flaky heels and other dry/cracked skin on the body.

Topricin provides pain relief by improving circulation and attracting and stimulating the body’s healing chemistries at the site of pain. Topricin delivers reliable pain relief, improving quality-of-life, and providing a strong adjunct to professional care with no side effects or contraindications. Topricin’s 11 homeopathic medicines are proven to be safe and effective for the elderly, children, pregnant women and all skin types and will not interfere with any medication you may be taking. No odor or fragrance, no petroleum, no mineral oil, no lanolin, no capsaicin, no menthol, no parabens, non-greasy and non-staining. [Click here to learn more.]

When I was having some pregnancy related lower back pain, I started using Topricin Pain Relief & Healing Cream several times a day. I noticed an improvement in the way my back felt immediately and even moreso after several days of use. I was quite impressed so it has now become an important part of my medicine cabinet. I’m so glad I discovered Topricin!

One of my questions was can I use this in the shower, and yes I can!  The brushes are easy to change and clean.

5 Ways To Get Ready for Spring

Spring is officially here, even though I still see about 2 feet of snow in my yard, I’m holding out hope that I will see Robin’s soon! I’m itching to break out the pastels and floral prints. Meanwhile, here are 5 ways to get ready for Spring!

Got spring fever? Dial knows just how you feel and they want you to feel like you can escape without even having to leave your own home! Dial’s new Coconut Water Body Wash and Skin Therapy Body Wash with Himalayan Salt. Dial brings the super popular and ultra-hydrating powers of coconut water right into your own bathroom! You’ll be ready to face your busy day with a essence of the tropics. These new Body Washes pair perfectly with their new 7-Day Moisturizing Lotion that I’m already totally in love with!

Clean your mouth out with Listerine Mouthwash, Listerine Whitening Toothpaste and an Oral-B Power Toothbrush. You’ll blast the winter layers right off your teeth and your mouth will feel as fresh as spring smells. Delightful!

Don’t forget your pores! Unclog those holes with Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser for a clean start that you’ll be able to see AND feel.


If you have around 20 pounds to lose, you might think it’s impossible to lose that weight before summer… Guess what? IT’S NOT! I lost 18 pounds in 8 weeks on the Dukan Diet and a total of 20 pounds total so I am now down to the weight I was when I got married almost 10 years ago! I’ve had two children and I gained 50+ pounds with both my pregnancies. I thought I would never lose the weight, but I DID! All thanks to The Dukan Diet!

If you don’t need to lose weight (Good for you!) you still want to firm and tone your skin before slipping into that new swimsuit. Products like Bliss FatGirlSlim coupled with the cellulite-fighting power of the Bliss Lean Machine will get those gams ready for the beach. I also love the Mama Mio Bikini Confidence Travel Kit and the Bootcamp for Butts Kit is amazing!

Every woman should own a pair of Anti Cellulite Shorts! One of the fastest ways to lose a few pounds (along with diet and exercise!) is Anti Cellulite Shorts. They help to increase your body’s core temperature which makes you sweat, dumping excess water retention. It also helps to increase the rate at which you burn calories, making your exercise routine more effective. A must-have for every girl!

Check out our article Get Fit Quick Just Like A Celebrity and How To Get Back In Shape After Holidays Binging for more tips on losing weight quickly and find out how you can Lose 2 Jean Sizes in 2 Weeks with Zaggora Hot Pants.

If you are desperate for fast results, consider i-Lipo Laser Liposuction Treatment. It costs about $250-$500 per session and you will visibly lose INCHES within an hour. Check out my before and after photos from just one session!

Whish Body Products, Luxury for your Skin!

Whish body products offered us the opportunity to highlight some of their pretty great products, here on The Fashionable Housewife. We obviously jumped at the chance because as women, we are always looking for the next great beauty product and you won’t find it unless you try all sorts of different stuff. Whish offers a great line of products from body scrubs and lotions all the way to luxury shave products (because we all need those!).

Whish Sugar Scrub, $38.00 EXFOLIATES- Bamboo Powder– an exfoliant that is loaded with minerals and natural silica to moisturize. Raspberry Seed – loaded with anti-oxidants that are a great natural exfoliator. Brown Sugar & Organic Sugar Cane – When brown sugar and organic sugar cane are combined with the bamboo powder and raspberry seed that result in an all natural, effective and moisturizing exfoliant. MOISTURIZES- Organic Shea Butter, Organic Aloe, Organic Raspberry Butter easily absorb into the skin to provide triple the moisture. RENEWS- Vitamin E and organic avocado oil combine to leave the skin young and bright with a daily dose of anti-oxidants.

OUR VERDICT?- Sweet smelling and does a great job of scrubbing off that excess skin for a smooth as a baby’s bottom feel. Also, this product does not leave granules at the bottom of the tub as with some of my other body scrubs.

Three Whishes Body Butter, $24.00 MOISTURIZES- Organic Aloe– a soothing, natural anti-septic with anti-bacterial properties, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. Organic Shea Butter – has a high content of non-saponifiable fats that are the best natural skin moisturizers and are also high in anti-oxidants. Organic Raspberry Butter – high in anti-oxidants, this attacks free radicals making it a magical moisturizer. FIRMS- Organic Seaweed Extract– loaded with firming peptides and anti-oxidants. PURIFIES- Organic Rice Bran Oil – very high in tocotrienols; a super anti-oxidant that can be 30 times more powerful than vitamin E and early studies have shown prevents skin cancer and improves sun screen efficiency.

 OUR VERDICT?- Mmmmm, also sweet smelling! While I didn’t notice any huge differences between this “body butter” or other lotions, I definitely love something that has a great smell like this. It also did it’s job as far as moisturizing, so I will give it my thumbs up.
