First ladies, let me tell you that Michelle, the owner and founder of Blended Naturals has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is a beautiful lady, inside and out! I am excited to announce that Michelle has generously donated 2 wonderful prizes for one of my readers in celebration of my Mad About Mama Mother's Day event. Let me tell you these products smell absolutely heavenly! So good, in fact, that I may just have to order several for myself! I would bathe in this stuff if I could! But I have an odd obsession with always smelling good and feeling soft. Seriously. Any of my friends in real life will attest to the fact that I probably own more "girly" products than anyone has a right to.... My products have taken over the space underneath 3 sinks, plus I have a linen closet full, as well as a bookshelf that is now literally a bath, beauty, and cosmetic shelf! And while my obsession with these types of products may be more than a tad out of control, I know that I am not alone in the desire to only use the BEST products for my face and body. I love products with tons of natural ingredients that nourish my skin, and the products MUST smell good, too!
Although Blended Naturals is geared primarily towards women of color, (African American, Indian, Native American, or Hispanic descent) and the unique skin care challenges they face, I truly believe that these are products that would benefit ANY woman and keep her looking and feeling her best. I consider myself Caucasian, but I DO have an olive complexion, thanks to the fact that while I am basically a European "mutt" of sorts, I am primarily Hungarian and Croatian. I have dark eyes, dark hair, and a year round tan. If I weren't so conscious of protecting my skin with sun-block and other UV protection, in the summer, I would get extremely dark. However, it is fake bake all the way for this mama, as I do not want to damage my skin and prematurely age, let alone invite skin cancer!
Anyway, enough about me. I want to talk more about the Blended Naturals line of bath and beauty products. Like I said before, these products are geared towards women of color. I know I have several readers out there that fit this description, so I jumped at the chance to include this line in my event. But please, my fellow Caucasian mamas, don't let this deter you! These products are luxurious, moisturizing, and smell better than most other similar products I have encountered. (And I have encountered HUNDREDS of them!) I have spent a lot of time at the Blended Natural's website, and I was blown away by the vast amount of information available there! Michelle has created not only an online store, but a one-stop "Beauty Bible" with everything from recipes for homemade beauty treatments that can save you time and money, to a huge amount of information about various skin conditions IN PLAIN ENGLISH, and different ways you can treat them naturally, safely, and effectively. She also has articles addressing different additives found in many skin care products and the dangers associated with them, how to improve acne with dietary changes, home remedies for sunburns, even a glossary of definitions of words commonly used in the cosmetic industry, free E-books, as well as TONS of tricks and tips to help you always put your best face forward and look and feel your best! Michelle even has a downloadable Beauty Guide for free with subscription to her newsletter!
Also on the website you will find many wonderful products that Michelle has lovingly created with your unique skin care needs in mind. And ALL of the Blended Naturals products contain essential oils that feel great on the skin and smell AMAZING. (I cannot stress the smell enough, ladies!) Also, every ingredient found in these products are free of harsh, skin damaging chemicals and all have names you can actually pronounce! And let's face it...If you can't pronounce it, you probably shouldn't be putting it on your skin!
Blended Naturals offers a myriad of specialized ethnic skin care products aimed towards many different skin types that combat many different skin problems. Here are just some of the categories Blended Naturals offers products in:
