I bought maca to get a clear skin, but the maca root has a myriad of other health benefits too! It balances hormones and that way treats PMS and I do notice that I’m less moody tan usual during that time of the month. It works wonders with libido (wink)! Maca should increase energy, but in my case I do not know what tho think, as sometimes it seems that it gives me energy, and sometimes it seems that it does not. Maybe I have to take it during a longer period of time to see the effects.
I can't tell much about this jojoba shampoo yet, as I have only used it twice so far. This shampoo smells really nice and leaves my hair squeaky clean without leaving them dry. It does not lather much, so I ended up using too much product the first time. I hoped it will help me to keep my hair clean for a longer time, but I still have to wash it every 2 days.
Works wonders with pores!

As I’m interested in everything activated charcoal, I decided to give this mask a try. I’m really happy with how this mask works! It leaves my pores cleaner than ever, does not dry my skin, exfoliates really gently and also helps to soothe breakouts. The first time I used this mask I got a little bit scared as my face got a little bit red after taking off the mask, but the redness fades fast and in the end I’m left with really clean and healthy looking skin. The tube is big and as just a little amount of mask is needed to cover the face, this tube will last for a long time. Looks like the price of this mask has gone up almost 50%, so I’m glad I bought it when it just became available. Not sure if I would buy it again with this price, though!
These cacao nibs are 100% organic and raw. They contain magnesium, fiber, calcium, and iron, so it's a perfect super food for maintaining a healthy heart, bones, digestive system and blood. They are super crunchy and bitter, too bitter for me. Even my husband who really loves dark chocolate and raw cacao found these bitter. We tried them by themselves and don't like them much. Have to try them with yogurt or in smoothies to see if they taste better then.
Ok, so these chocolate chips did not make to any of my baked goods. I think this is the first time I have ever tried andy Ghirardelli products as they are not so common to find in Estonia nor Spain. I bought these for my husband as he really loves dark chocolate and I thought I could surprise him with something delicious. So I opened the package to give it try. I have to say that I don't like dark chocolate much, but boy, are these chocolate chips amazing! I offered these to my daughter too, and in the end we devoured them in two days. Looks like I have to buy more of them so one day I can use them for baking too!
Great essential oil
My husband asked for a lavender essential oil for his aching muscles. I know that he has had several foot baths with this oil and some peppermint foot soak and he really enjoyed them. I know that lavender oil also works for fighting acne, sinusitis, and headache, but I haven't used them for those purposes yet.
I'm so in love with this zinc cream. I had heard so many good things about it and decided to give it a try. The cream contains Zinc Oxide (10%) and Sulfur (4%) that help to heal and prevent breakouts and blemishes. I use this cream several times a day - under the moisturizer in the morning, after cleansing my skin in the evening and during the day, whenever needed. Margarite Cosmetics Zinc Cream is tinted, so it instantly covers all the redness and at the same time dries and heals the problematic areas. The first few times using this cream the chin area got super dry, but it went away in a couple of days and since then I haven't noticed any dryness when using the cream. Whenever I see a red pump I apply the cream and let it do the work. It's really effective and the pimples dry in a day or two and if you apply the cream in time the pimples do not get a chance to appear! Will be buying it in the future too!

These are so delicious and have a great flavour! Will be buying them again!
Great for my problematic skin
Posted by ataarta on Nov 17, 2016
I’m taking 2-3 pills daily and it really has helped to fight my skin problems. I like these Now Foods Super Omega 3 – 6 – 9 softgels because they don’t have any kind of fishy aftertaste and the natural fish oil concentrate used in these caps is free of potentially harmful levels of contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB’s, dioxins, and other contaminants).
Reaally great product!
I finished the TBS tea tree oil and needed a new one. This Now Foods Tea Tree essential oil is 100% pure and can be used for several purposes. I use it mostly for spot treating the breakouts and also add a couple of drops to my daughter's shampoo to prevent lice. I'm really sad that this product can't be shipped to Spain anymore.
Best nut bar I have tried!
Posted by ataarta on Mar 10, 2017
First of all, this nut bar is the best one I have ever tried! It’s full of flavor and so delicious! I really have to try their other varieties too! These nut bars are sprouted, which means that the nutrients absorb faster and they are easier to digest. These bars contain sprouted almonds, pecans, walnuts, organic blueberries, organic date paste, organic raw chia seeds among other healthy ingredients. They pack a 5g of protein, are vegan, kosher and gluten-free. These bars excellent when on the go or after exercising. I will add a couple of these to my carry-on bag when traveling!
We will be buying more of this tea for sure! Perfect for those cold and chilly winter days!
It's a first time I'm trying any Yogi Teas. I bought this organic Honey Lemon Throat Comfort tea as it's caffeine-free, so I can let my daughter have a couple of sips too. This tea smells really well and tastes better. My husband has used it for several times now, I have used it twice and we love this tea! It does soothe the irritated and sore throat really well. The effect could last a little bit longer, though. I discovered that if I smell the closed tea packages a little (don't inhale the tea mix), it helps me to loosen the nasal congestion a little. We will be buying more of this tea for sure! Perfect for those cold and chilly winter days!
