Mavala Nail Products

I love these nail products by Mavala! They have so many great products for your nails .. in this review I’m going to point out some of my favorite products and show how great they work for me … I love doing my nails and have tried so many different nail companies in the past and Mavala is definitely my favorite one by far .. they have a HUGE variety of nail care products as well as nail polishes and have everything from cuticle care to Stop nail biting polish ! After you read this review I hope you will love this company & there products as much as I do !

Nail Hardener

Ok so this nail hardener is great because it’s super easy to apply .. it’s not like normal hardeners where it’s a polish this is more like an oil and you apply it to the tip of your nails everyday and it really works! You can apply it to bare nails or over a fresh manicure .. either way it won’t mess up your polished nails !

“The tip of the nail is the most fragile, most unprotected part and breaks easily. It frequently needs to be strengthened. Mavala was the first to produce a penetrating nail hardener that actually hardens nails immediately and helps prevent splitting of flaking. Formulated in 1958, Mavala Scientifique is absorbed into the nail tip to harden and strengthen it. One small 5 ml bottle holds a year’s supply.”

I just started using this product and I like how it makes my nails fell hard and so firm . If this product steals my heart I will never buy another brand nail hardener again

Mava Strong is an amazing base cost for regular or gel polish! It leaves your nails smooth and lets your polish look super smooth when applied ! I can’t put polish on without using this amazing base coat!

o you have weak brittle nails that just don’t grow? Then read on as I’m about to introduce you to a product that will put all of that into the past. Drum roll… Mava-Strong! After extensive research and testing Mavala, a Swiss brand famous for their innovative and highly effective nail care products, have launched this new nail strengthener earlier this year. So we expect nothing less than revolutionary from Mava-Strong.

Maria and I have both decided to give Mavala Mava-Strong a try. We both have nails that are prone to breaking so it is easy to test drive a nail strengthener. If it works, our nails grow nice and strong, if not… well, hello shorties. Mava-Strong sounded too good not to give it a chance, and we did!

Read our detailed Mavala Mava-Strong review below to find out how effective this nail strengthener really is…

Claim:

Mavala says Mava-Strong “allows splitting, soft, thus breaking nails to regain their normal, healthy and strong aspect. It combines two actions working in synergy: fortifying and protecting.  …active ingredients combining technicality and efficiency will quickly improve the appearance of nails and make them more resistant and thicker.”

Use:

Very easy to use. Apply 1-2 coats daily for a week. At the end of week, remove. Repeat for at least 3 weeks. Otherwise, simply use it as a base (2 coats) before applying nail colour for a month or longer if you wish.

Formula:

The unique formula is full of natural and nutritious ingredients for nails. With strengthening elements like keratin and arginine coupled with nourishing tea tree oil and Vitamin E makes for a good combination to thicken your nails and keep them healthy

Mavala Stop 

This is the best product on the market for thumb sucking.  It works for kids who suck fingers and bite fingernails as well.  I bought mine on Amazon.  Paint it on the child’s fingernail on the digit they suck.  (My children were quite determined so I had to paint both thumbs.)  Paint it on in the morning and again at night.  Again, the key is consistency.  It is nasty tasting stuff and if you are consistent it will not take long for them to get the picture.It takes about a month to kick a habit so dig your heels in parents and help those kids out. Good luck!

My daughter always bites her nails and Ive tried to many other polishes and remedies and this is the best stop biting polish EVER! it really works and now she never bites her nails and they are actually starting to grow .. I’m very satisfied with this product !

  • Nail biting and thumb sucking habit-breaking and prevention treatment with easy, brush on application
  • Bitter yet harmless taste and the appearance of clear enamel helps break the nail biting and thumb sucking habit
  • Keeps nails healthy and strong and keeps hands out of mouth to prevent spread of germs
  • Safe for children aged four and adults of all ages

Nia Skincare

Nia is a new line of face products for combating the everyday stressors our skin is up against. Think of all those nights you stay up waaaaay too late, or for those of you who enjoy a cocktail (or five,) the Sunday night after a long weekend. (Or how about when you accidentally fall asleep with your makeup on?) Your skin and face look dull and tired, right? That’s what I love about this skincare line. It’s designed for millennials and the wear and tear we put on our skin from our crazy, tech-infused lifestyle. Though I’m excited to try all the products in the line, I started with these three and loved them. Here’s the breakdown:

Nia Sunday Detox Whipped Clay Peel-Off MaskLet’s just call this an instant re-set button. This can of clay mousse draws our dirt and debris from your pores to reduce the appearance of blackheads (yuck), then dries to a peel-off mask to remove all the not so lovely dead skin cells. Result? Baby-fresh skin. Hooray! **Side note: you have have seen reports recently of people ripping off their skin with certain peel-off masks. You aren’t in any danger of damaging your skin with this one. It’s gentle and easy.

Nia Glow On Demand Energizing Illuminator: This illuminator is a great way to perk up skin mid-day or before going out at night. It’s made of light-reflecting ingredients that brighten and give your skin a nice glow. The formula includes things like caffeine and ginger, which are known to firm, tighten, and just make everything look smoother. I love using it around 1:00 p.m. to refresh my makeup instead of reapplying more; I just pat a little of the product onto my skin and that’s it!

Tech Neck Line Smoother: I have lines on my neck that bother me. I know they are from years of repeated texting, typing, and looking down at my Kindle. But what can I do about them? That’s where this smoothing serum comes in. It’s a lightweight serum with a cool massage roller that instantly firms and smooths your skin. It’s supposed to help combat those horizontal lines that keep forming around my neck like an innertube. Thank goodness this stuff exists.

Milk & Sass

When I spotted these adorable little Macaron for Hair™, I knew I couldn’t pass them up. The Macaron for Hair™ from Milk+Sass is a “bite-sized” detangling brush that easily smoothes out tangles while on-the-go! They come neatly packaged in a see-through container and looked identical to actual edible macarons! I was surprised at how easy the Macaron for Hair™ was to use. To start, the size/shape of these brushes make them extremely easy to hold and they are extremely lightweight. Each macaron features a pop-on/pop-off cover. One side of the macaron holds the brush/bristles while the other side features a compact mirror. The silicone bristles on the brush were extremely soft. I have fairly thick hair so I thought they would break easily, however that was not the case. I was able to brush my hair completely without any major pulling and without breaking any of my hair. I initially wanted this brush for on-the-go purposes, but I have actually been using mine inside of my home as well. I much prefer my Macaron for Hair™ versus my basic brushes. It has worked perfectly on my hair while both wet and dry, and also keeps my daughter from screaming that I am pulling her hair too much. These adorable macarons are absolutely perfect for everyone in the family and would make perfect gifts!

The two-length radial bristles are said to work twice as fast as the average hairbrush. Whether you have just hopped out of the shower or are waking up with dry, messy hair, the Macaron For Hair will work its magic and have you looking like Rapunzel in no time.

Did I mention that this hairbrush works on all hair types, even on extensions? Have long, thick and wavy hair like me, or short, thin fragile locks prone to breakage? The Macaron For Hair will have your hair looking fabulous without causing any damage.

I pretty much ditched my regular hairbrush years ago and resorted to using a wide tooth comb, although it would still take me quite a while to get through all of my knots. The Macaron For Hair has performed even better than I expected, and now I get to keep one on my vanity and two in each of my handbags. This will be a great little hair companion for when I will be travelling too as it doesn’t take much space and is lightweight. Can you tell I’m pretty much infatuated with these little (hair) sweets?

The Milk + Sass Macaron For Hair (US$15) is available in six shades and can be purchased online.

Aren’t these simply the cutest? What colour would you pick out for yourself

I absolutely loved the scent on this shampoo when I first opened the bottle.! The first thing I did when I got my box was open it to smell it and it’s as good as everyone claims! It smells like coconuts and berries.

The thing I AM absolutely loving, though, is what is NOT in it: parabens, sulphates, chemicals, or animal tears (it wasn’t tested on animals). I hate using toxic stuff that can absorb into my skin or contaminate water sources anyway, but actually this last weekend I was getting my hair cut and the hair dresser told me that particularly for curly hair, the sulphates can have a chemical reaction with hair (curly hair tends to be more porous, so that’s why more so with curly than straight hair) and make it frizz. So using a sulphate free shampoo is not only good for your health and the environment, but it’s also good for your hair!

Although not a huge bottle, I do think there is really good value for money with Hairgurt. You don’t need to use a lot and for comparable products, it’s really not expensive.

One thing I’m a bit meh about is the idea of prebiotics. I’m not really sure what the point of that is. Although our entire body has its own microbiome, I’m unclear what the point of the prebiotcs is and how it’s even slightly beneficial….particularly in the hair. It almost seems as though the company tried to use all the buzzwords in healthy living and applied them to the shampoo.

Overall, I think it’s a great shampoo that healthy for you and the environment, it does its job (cleans your hair!), and makes your hair look great! Highly recommended

The packaging on this product is SO cute. It looks like yogurt in a yogurt container but on the side of the container it warns you “do not eat”. It is quite tempting. It looks so creamy and smells lovely too.

The actual product itself also looks like a thick yogurt texture. The scent is quite light and not overbearing, which I like. The hairgurt goes on smoothly and my hair does feel much softer after having used it. I still do need to use product on my hair since it does tend to frizz up when I air dry it. I don’t think it’s a one-stop solution to frizzless hair, but it’s a good quality hair masque with a great scent. I didn’t feel like it left a lot of residue and my hair wasn’t sticky like with some other masks.

I also appreciate that the mask is free from a lot of chemicals and sulfates. I feel better knowing it’s a more natural, moisturizing product. It is rather on the expensive side, but it does come with two separate containers so you the freshness lasts longer than if you got one big tub. Overall, I like this product.

#hairgurt

This hairgurt hair mask is very soft in texture and a little bit goes a long way on my hair. I have very thin hair and after using this mask, my hair looks so full and shiny. I love it and I use it every third wash.

Since  I only use a tiny bit of conditioner on a regular basis to avoid weighing down my hair, my regular conditioner lasts me for years at a time. I had noticed that my beauty supply collection was missing a strong hair masque for the summer. I wanted a product that would remove the hardness that my strands can get after being in chlorine all day.

This product delivered great results! I used it about once a week and as needed after long days in the pool. My hair looked and felt much nicer afterwards. After using this hair masque, I didn’t even need additional styling products to help smooth my hair. I used this masque in mainly in combination with the Hairgurt shampoos, but I found that it also worked well with any shampoos I was using at the time.

I like this scrub a lot. It’s a gentle physical exfoliator, well-packaged and it smells great. (This review is for the ‘Out of the Shower’ scent. The packaging is very giftable–it would look really nice in a spa basket for a school fundraiser or in a care package for a college student. It’s a nice big bottle with understated, refined labeling and an expensive-looking shiny metallic cap.

The big selling point on this scrub in my opinion is the scent. It is advertised as the ‘squeaky clean’ option of the line, but I don’t think that really reflects the smell, because “squeaky clean” to me is a one-note scent of either linen or lemon. I would describe this scent as icy (in the way a piece of gum can be), lightly floral, and, well, soapy. It’s a very clean scent, but it’s not the kind of generic “clean” that might get mistaken for harsh detergent or my dad’s Head and Shoulders–a nice, complex scent that really does stick around all day. It feels much more grown up than a lot of other scented or themed products.

As for the scrubbiness itself–the texture is best described as a creamier version of the St. Ives apricot scrub–the little scrubbies are about the same size and texture (though, as another reviewer notes, the scrubbies here are walnut shells, so people with tree nut allergies should probably avoid this product). The creamy bit that the scrubbies are suspended in is a little thicker than St. Ives, which I guess is probably appropriate for a product intended to be used on the body rather than the face. The product boasts additional substances, too: “Arctic vitamins” and a “super fruit blend” that apparently hydrate and improve skin texture. About half of the ingredients are labelled as the extract of some fruit or other. I’m not terribly knowledgeable about these ingredients, but for folks who might know, they’re there.

The packaging is very giftable–it would look really nice in a spa basket for a school fundraiser or in a care package for a college student. It’s a nice big bottle with understated, refined labeling and an expensive-looking shiny metallic cap.

And, if you’re concerned about ethical buying: the product isn’t tested on animals, and because it uses the natural walnut scrubbies rather than plastic microbeads, it’s much more environmentally friendly.

I had the opportunity to try these all natural products by basic naturals and some of my favorite products were “happy feet” it left my cracked feet looking and feeling so smooth after just using it once! Another grea product was the “clean face” its a purifying cleanser that left my skin glowing! I suffer from adult acne so its hard finding an all natural product that actually works and after using this a couple times my face actually started to clear up! Another great product was the “skin repair” which worked great on my psoriasis! You can also use it on bug bites or pretty much any skin problem! And whats great about all these products is that they are made with all natural ingredients so you know your only putting the best on your skin and not putting any toxins or chemicals! Even if you have sensitive skin like mine you could use Basic Naturals because its great for all skin types!

Shampoo That Smells So Good You Won’ t Leave Your Shower

I can’t emphasize enough how much I hate doing my hair. Brushing it, drying it, and worst of all styling it – I don’t know what it is. It doesn’t matter how many Youtube videos I watch or how many products I’ve purchased to try and copy the magic my hairstylist was able to accomplish – I just don’t have the skills. Luckily when I use the right shampoo & conditioner my hair looks great down & I am able to kill the perfect messy bun & sleek ponytail.

I’ve been using natural SLS free products for years and my hair & scalp couldn’t be happier.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a set of Carina Organics Pink Grapefruit Shampoo & Conditioner. Right off the bat I’m a huge fan of anything natural and anything citrus + the packaging was super simple and clean which I love! . First thing I did when I opened it was of course smell it and OH MY GOD! It seriously smells like I just cut open a grapefruit.. i love the smell of grapefruit so I absolutely LOVED the smell of these products!  I have been using both the shampoo and conditioner for about two weeks now and here are my thoughts on these two natural beauties.

In the summer I wash my hair daily – as this product is intended to be used. However, in the colder months (which it has been since I started using it) I usually only wash my hair once every 2 – 3 days. That being said I did wash it daily for four days so I could truly test it for how it’s supposed to be used – and for this it worked great.

It doesn’t form what I would say is a rich lather unless I use a lot (and I mean A LOT) but when your hair is still pretty clean and doesn’t need that deep cleanse it works just fine. It’s also SLS free which is part of the reason it doesn’t lather as much as traditional shampoo. I have found I need to use about a full palms worth so I’ve been going through it quite quickly. If your hair is in need of more of a deep clean I don’t think I would recommend this shampoo for that purpose. But when used daily it leaves my hair nice and soft and very shiny.

It is meant for dry, chemically or colour treated hair – none of which I have so it makes it impossible to address those points. The fact that it is made with organic ingredients, SLS free, smells amazing, and is gentle enough for daily use are all big wins in my book. Other than the lack of lather the only other thing I could ask from this product is that it not contain palm oil (in case you didn’t know palm oil is one of the most destructive ingredients on the planet – but that’s a story for another day).

Daily Light Conditioner

Now comes the conditioning part. Ok! here is a brand which many of you may or may not be familiar with but I am letting you know through my blog that you are truly missing out on a great product if you haven’t tried Carina Organics hair care products. If you are a hardcore Organic Beauty lover then you will definitely enjoy knowing that this brand’s ingredients are sustainably sourced, certified organic, and carefully harvested. Their ingredients are hand selected and harvested through out the year from forests and farms across various regions of Pacific Northwest. They are even open to take in any questions or concerns regarding their ingredients or sourcing. Just contact them (you can click on the underlined brand above to be automatically directed to their website). FYI Carina has been around since 1972 and it is a Canadian brand.

I just love everything about this deep treatment conditioner which also helps to repair dry, chemically treated or damaged hair. Smells like heaven to me. I use it once every week after using my 100% Pure shampoo; leave it on for few minutes and then rinse off. That’s all! You will NOT find one single bad ingredient in it.

Leave-In Conditioner

When your hair needs a little extra dose of hydration, spray this formula onto damp or wet hair and comb through.

What i loved about this product:The Sweet Pea Leave-In Conditioner is a toxin-free detangling leave-in conditioner that can help tame unruly hair. We particularly appreciate its nutrient-rich formula that helps restore your hair’s natural flexibility, shine and luster.

Issue with traditional leave-in conditioners: Just like hair conditioners, some traditional leave-in hair conditioners are made with harsh chemicals and fragrances that can cause cancer or other health issues!

*Why are cosmetics tested on animals? 

Because they are synthetic, NOT Natural ingredients.
One of the only reasons animal testing occurs at all is because cosmetic companies want to continuously synthesize new products with newly designed chemicals. Since these chemicals are artificially designed in laboratories, their effect on human beings (or any organic specimen for that matter) is largely unknown, and therefore must be tested.

The main reasons animal testing is done at all is because these synthetic chemicals are not organic or natural. They are essentially brand new chemical formulations.

Testing is required on these synthetic chemicals to look at the possible toxic
or genetic effects they might have on human beings, both short and long term.

By committing to using natural ingredients and formulations,
animal testing is not required and not necessary.

Complextion Perfection:

Extracts of Sweet Almond and Anise Fruit in Safflower and 2%  Salicylic Acid base are clinically proven to encourage skin cell regeneration, smooth and decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, imperfections, impurities and scarring. This serum has an instant plumping and smoothing effect upon application as well as a therapeutic permanent benefit with regular use. Apply to any area of concern on face, back of hands, neck and decolletage.

This is one of my favorite products!

Pure Hydration:

Organic, pharmaceutical grade hyaluronic acid – a natural form of vitamin C – infuses 1000x its weight in moisture deep into the skin, therapeutically plumping, firming & smoothing fine lines & wrinkles while nourishing cells. Ideal for all skin types, this serum hydrates without added oils. An excellent soothing product for post skin peels.

This is another serum I really liked because I have super dry skin and its so hard finding a good serum that hydrates your skin! Well this  serum really did the job well.. after using it the first time my face felt so hydrated and moisturized I didn’t even have to reapply it throughout the day! Another great thing is that its not to oily were it would leave your face greasy or looking oily.. it has the perfect amount of ingredients to leave your skin feeling hydrated all day long

Cleansing Foam:

The best organic face wash with a specially formulated organic cleansing foam – our most popular facial cleanser. It lightly exfoliates and softens your skin while keeping protective layers intact. Formulated entirely from active botanical ingredients without the use of chemical detergents, it deep cleans your pores while providing a healthy pH balance. You can also use it to remove make-up.

This great organic face wash leaves your face feeling and looking so clean.. what i love is that its not to harsh on your skin so its great for even sensitive skin like mine! But it still does the job by deep cleaning your pores and it even removes your makeup!! This face wash is definitely one of my favorites !

Active plant essences in this mist will nourish, rejuvenate, hydrate, brighten and tighten your tired skin cells, leaving you with a healthy, radiant glow!

I really love this Rejuvenating Mist..  It refreshes your face with just a couple sprays! I always use it in the morning because  It wakes up your face ..leaving it looking bright, radiant, hydrated, nourished, rejuvenated and it even tightens your tired skin cells! Its a great mist to spray on the go especially if i dont feel like wearing makeup that day .. i dont have to worry about my skin looking tired !

Ash Soap:

Unique artisan soap, hand made according to an ancient tribal recipe. A deeply cleansing and clarifying foam appears once the included charcoal bristle brush is moistened and lathered over the soft soap granules. Excellent for pigmented, sun damaged, impure and wrinkled skin. Ideal for the most sensitive skin types, and those who cannot tolerate soaps. If your skin is prone to rosacea, inflammatory conditions, acne or ingrown hairs, this soap is a must have. A great source of Vitamins A & E as well as iron.

 

This awesome soap comes with  chatcoal bristle brush which helps apply the soap and lather it up perfectly on your face! I have suffered with adult acne my whole adult  life and this soap really helps clear up my skin! Not only does it help with just acne but with so many other face conditions.. i like to also use it for ingrown hairs and it really works!

It comes with 6 beautiful colors that illuminate your face! It has every color that you need in a highlighting palette.. If you are a tired Mom like me, you are going to love the yellow shade. Yellow will make under eye dark circles disappear like you just got back from a kid free vacation! WOW! It is also effective at covering dark acne scars as well! Pink is generally used by those with Olive or darker skin tones to neutralize under eye circles. Since their skin tone is different, the dark circles under are generally more green in color whereas fair skinned people have a more blueish tone. Making the need for pink to neutralize them a must. The pink can also be used to brighten around the eyes, or use as a highlighter.The white is for highlighting. Around the eyes, to highlight the brow or just above the cheekbones to really make an overall look ‘pop’.The skin tones in a contour palette generally run from fair to rather dark. These are for concealer (after you neutralize redness and dark circles). As well as contouring areas of your face and creating definition in your look. You can use them as stand alone colors or blend two or more together to get the desired shade you would like. These are especially handy if you want to make your nose appear slimmer, hide a double chin and slim down the entire appearance of your face and many other uses as well.
