So…..once again when my friend Tammy asked for someone to check out a new Younique product, I jumped at it!! I am a ghost. So anything that makes me look less ghost like, I’m all for. That fact that it’s a product from one of my favorite companies, is a definite bonus.
You’ve got 3 choices, a lotion, a spray or an instant bronzer. The bronzer washes off in the shower. I wanted something that would last longer, so I didn’t choose it.The lotion was what I was looking at, but it was on back order. So I went with the spray. I actually think it was more appropriate for what I wanted anyway. I didn’t want to go home ghost white and show up at work and everyone think—oh she got a fake bake tan last night. The spray from what I’m told is a lighter tan.
My New Spray.
Tiny but mighty.
So when I got the bottle of spray, I must say I was a bit surprised. It’s tiny, as you can see in the picture there by the soda can. So instantly I messaged Tammy and said “I sure hope a little goes a long way with this.” She assured me it did. She said it covers an entire body twice. Well….I’m only spraying my legs (I run so I’ve already got some color on my face and arms-yes I use sunscreen!!) She figured I get 4 or 5 applications at least.
So off I went to make sure my legs were clean, dry, exfoliated and shaved. I hopped out of the shower and sprayed my legs, rubbed in the spray and washed my hands. I just used a light spray I wasn’t sure how dark it would turn me. Well….first things first….that stuff dries almost INSTANTLY!! Oh hallelujah! Finally a spray tan I can use and get dressed right away!! Totally LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I noticed a change within seconds. Then I checked back 15 minutes later and an hour later. It was slight, but it was there.

This is what it looked like 24 hours later. I was a happy girl. Now…it might not look like much to you. But…to me it was exactly what I wanted. As I mentioned earlier, I’m a runner. I occasionally have to tape my legs due to shin splints. Well….when I pulled the tape off, the tan came off with it. Which, I completely expected, it happened when I had a spray tan done as well. But, the great thing is, I’m probably the only one who would notice it and reapplication of the spray worked great!

I was given the opportunity to do a review for Purely. They are a direct sales company that sales products related to and including essential oils. I spoke with Dianna Anderson (https://www.facebook.com/diana.anderson.585559) one of their consultants.
After reviewing her website http://bepure.ly/index.aspx I decided that I’d love to try their bath bar. First Dianna sent me some small samples of both Relaxation and Shield, while I was waiting on the full size bar of Relaxation. Relaxation is described as “Relax Bath Bar contains essential oils that help promote relaxation and stress relief.” I’m a mom of 3 kids! I can definitely use that!! The Shield Bath Bar “contains essential oils that help support your immune system and cleanse impurities.” The Relaxation sample had a very strong smell, even in a tiny sample. The Shield Bar smelled strong as well, but it was more of clean scent.
When I got the full size bar of Relaxation, it had the same strong smell as the small sample. It has a combination of lavender and bergamot oils in it, I’m guessing that’s what I was smelling. I know some people really like the smell of bergamot, but apparently I don’t. Shortly after I received the bath bar I was at a shop that had bergamot soap. I didn’t care for the smell of it either.
However, it was a very pretty bar. The unique blend of ingredients marbled thru it and it’s unique shape from being hand crafted made it very pleasing to look at. It is a 4 oz. bar, that makes it slightly smaller than a store bought bar of soap for those of us who can’t visualize 4 oz. of soap (yup, that’s me too). It didn’t dry out my skin as some soaps do, likely because it’s made with goats milk and olive oil. It lasted about 2.5-3 weeks.
It’s priced at $12 a bar which from what I’ve seen in hand crafted soaps is on the higher end of the price range. Similar soaps range in price from $4 up from what I’ve seen.
Purely has a ton of other products as well. They have everything from olive oil for cooking to men’s body care and they have individual essential oils as well. If you’d like to learn more about Purely and their products feel free to contact Dianna and I’m sure she’d be glad to help you out.
