Healthy Skin starts with Niacinamide

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is absolutely essential for healthy skin.  Niacinamide helps moisturize skin by preventing water loss, improves elasticity and fatty acid levels in the skin, and evens out skin tone and rids you of dark spots and acne scars.

I am very skeptical when it comes to new skin care products as I am prone to a sensitive reaction to the chemicals.  I braved it one more time and tried out this product, and I am glad that I did.  The Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer is a very thick cream that is perfect for dry skin.  This moisturizer also balances out the elements of combination skin.  I have combination skin (a lil more oily) and I used this as a night cream.  My face was very well hydrated, but not oily at all.  This is also a great moisturizer for the skin on your neck and other dry areas on your body.

Remember, when applying moisturizer to use light upward strokes and to massage gently into the skin.


Pair the Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer with the Vitamin C Serum and your skin will have a natural, youthful glow.  I have noticed less blemishes and breakouts and my skin appears more radiant.  I recommend both products as a regular beauty regiment for healthy skin.

Body Merry Serum for beauty regimen

Do you use serums in your every day beauty routine? I use a vitamin c serum on a regular basis and the benefits are endless. So when Body Merry gave me the opportunity to try out their Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the 2.5% Retinol Serum I was super excited. The skin on my face was like yayyyy! Using a serum is super duper easy! After cleansing your face you want to gently massage a couple of drops onto your skin and follow with a moisturizer. Now that we covered the how to use, let’s take a look at the benefits.


The Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a professional grade vegan Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin C and Green Tea.  Super packed with the nutrients your face needs!  This serum will hydrate and bind moisture to the skin for a supple and silky feel, all while firming and smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines  Your skin will be more resilient and will appear healthier and radiant.

Both products are thick and have a light desirable fragrance.  Due to the thickness you will not need to use more than two or three drops for your entire face.  I do have sensitive skin and my face had a reaction to the serums.  I recommend testing the serums on a small area before using on your entire face.

Pink Parchment Soaps

I think my secret has been let out of the bag!  I love all natural soaps!  And I have another fantastic soap review for ya’ll this week.  What I absolutely love is no two soaps are alike.  Like really!  Because soap making is an art.  The artisan develops his/her own signature and style and may use a variety of different ingredients.  Pink Parchment Soaps specialize in handmade Shea butter soaps, handmade sugar scrubs, and handmade body butters.  Using all natural vegan ingredients that will leave your body nourished and revitalized.


The natural oils used in their products will create a balance in the properties of your skin, while the essential oils used can help stabilize your mood.  I like the thick creaminess of the body butter and it absorbs into the skin quickly.  The body butter is pack full of skin loving oils, butters, vitamins and botanicals. The Cocoa and Shea butters help to retain moisture, while Vitamins A, C and E help to nourish your skin. Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Lavender extracts all work together to help soothe and pamper the skin. Rich, thick and very luxurious and you will be amazed at how long the scent lingers on your skin.  The peppermint is very light and airy.  I love to use this body butter after a long day at work or when I feel stressed. The scent of peppermint helps to relax me and keeps headaches at bay.


The Mango Papaya Sugar Scrub is fantabulous!  It is like all natural botox for the skin!  It is perfect for all skin types; young and old.  It is packed with Mango butter, Mango fruit extract, Papaya fruit extract, Turmeric, honey, and Coconut milk.  This combo reduces the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles.  It is amazing to me the scars that I had on my hands for years (from a dog bite and rabbit scratch) are fading.


Beautiful and sweet soaps…this cucumber melon shea butter soap will leave your skin silky and soft.  The smell is sweet and is intoxicating.


There is also something for the kiddos!  The Ninja Soap makes bath time super uber fun.  My son was tickled pink that there was a fun soap made just for him!
