Why Sonic Toothbrushes Are Best For Your Teeth And Giveaway

Tooth be told, as we age, our teeth become worn and dull, and no one likes a dull smile.  One way to limit the dull look is to have a consistent oral hygiene regimen in place. This should include regular visits to the dentist, flossing, as well as brushing your teeth regularly with a quality “SONIC” toothbrush, like one from MornWell!

Like anything else that ages, over the years wear and tear, can negatively affect our teeth, like wearing the protective enamel on our teeth, build up and retention of plaque and other issues.

So how can you decrease these from happening or worse yet tooth decay? It’s pretty simple, with good oral care, by properly brushing your teeth at least twice and preferably three times a day.  Of course, dental care professionals have recommended brushing after every meal or snack, and the MornWell Sonic Toothbrush is just the tooth brush you need! SO MAKE SURE TO ENTER TO WIN ONE BELOW!

I’m a big fan of sonic powered devices from a sonic facial cleansing brush and the sonic makeup brush, adding a sonic tooth brush, like the one from Mornwell, was an easy decision for me to make.

Why Sonic Toothbrushes Are Best For Your Teeth With Mornwell And Barbie's Beauty Bits

About The MornWell D01 Sonic Powered Toothbrush
Much faster than hands alone, the MornWell D01 sonic electric toothbrush delivers up to 40,000 brush strokes per minute and can remove up to 10x more dental plaque along the gumline than manual brushing. Another thing I loved about this sonic electric toothbrush is that it can improve gum health up to 100% better than a manual toothbrush.

The MornWell D01 Sonic Powered Toothbrush review by Barbies Beauty Bits

Brushing Modes
Mornwell’s electric toothbrush has four different brushing modes to suit your oral care needs helping to keep your teeth stronger, cleaner and healthier.
  • Clean (Daily Clean)
  • Soft (Sensitive Teeth)
  • Whiten (Tooth Whitening)
  • Massage (Gum Care)
Each mode has a 2-minute automatic brushing cycle with a 30-second reminding interval pause, which is great as I’m sure a lot of you are guilty as I am at not brushing my teeth long enough.

Brush Heads
The  MornWell sonic Tooth brush comes with four sonic toothbrush heads and should be replaced about every three months.

Top Tips To Banishing Adult Acne With ZAPZYT

Top Tips To Banishing Adult Acne With ZAPZYT By Barbie's Beauty Bits and PRIMP

Acne is not something that only 13 years old’s experience during puberty; it can have an onset later in life as well. Think about, life can be stressful, and this stress can have a negative impact on our body, which can lead to an occasional flare up.

Sucks, yeah, I know. So not only could you be fending off wrinkles but also pimples! So what is a girl to do? Why is this happening as I am not a teenager anymore? Well, fret no more as I have partnered up with ZAPZYT and The PRIMP Network to bring you "11 Ways To Help Banish Adult Acne."

Why Do Women Get Adult Acne

While clogged pores can be an apparent reason, most of us in our 30s/40s are pretty good about managing that.  What we may not always be great at managing is the stress in our lives from our work, children, on the go diets, and more.

These stress factors can contribute to those unexpected zits as they can cause women’s hormones to go into a frenzy and when our hormones are out of whack, it can trigger adult acne!

Now I am not going to get too technical here, but for this post, I reached out to a friend of mine that works at a dermatologist office. And she explained that when women experience hormonal fluctuations due to stress, there is an increase in our cortisol levels, AKA stress hormone. This stress hormone gets broken down by our body into testosterone, and causes our skins oil production to sky rocket, causing a breakout!  And if that wasn’t bad enough it can also break down collagen and elastin, ultimately leading to wrinkles!

11 Ways To Help Banish Adult Acne By Barbies Beauty Bits


11 Ways To Zap Your Zits

While there is not a magic wand that can banish those blemishes forever, there are some steps you can take to help reduce them, and I have outlined them below.

TIP 1: Reduce Stress
While being told, don’t stress about it is easier said than done, there are some things we can do that can help alleviate some stress, like getting a good night sleep, sex or for me a workout. Yes, a quick workout to me is a great stress reliever, as it can help to take our mind off the stressful day as well as contributing to reducing our cortisol levels, by producing endorphins, which calms you!

How stress can cause acne in women by barbies beauty bits

TIP 2: Look At The Great Ingredients
An effective zit zapping product can play a significant role in helping to reduce a flare up. It is important to look for products that have some key ingredients in them like salicylic acid, that helps by exfoliating to unclog your pores and benzoyl peroxide that works by killing acne bacteria.

Given that, I am here to share with you ZAPZYT skincare products, to help you zap unexpected flare ups! Before I get into these products, it is important to understand that this product, as well as my tips, are not for people with frequent acne issues, but rather those occasional blemishes due to stress and other environmental factors.

ALSO, I am not a medical professional, as with all my posts I am here to share my knowledge and experiences with a product. So, if you are experiencing severe acne, I would suggest seeking advice from a medical professional first, as this product I am about to share is not for those with extreme acne.

Zap Your Zits With ZAPZYT Products
This line comes with four treatments options. One thing that I liked about this line is that is great at helping to treat your breakouts fast as the last thing we need is to add more stress because of a pimple!

Zap Your Zits With ZAPZYT Acne Products By Barbies Beauty Bits and PRIMP

Tip 3: Cleanse
Being a busy bee and always on the go, I am exposing my skin to tons of damaging elements every day. Elements like dust, sweat, and even makeup can wreak havoc on the skin. So properly cleansing your skin is the first step in your topical treatment and the unscented, oil and alcohol-free ZAPZYT Acne Wash is great at helping to penetrates deep into pores. It is also…
  • Hypoallergenic cleanser, and free of dyes.
  • Has aloe and chamomile to soothe and calm the skin and reduce redness.
  • 2% Salicylic Acid that encouraging exfoliation of dead skin cells, which is essential in helping to clean out those clogged pores, keeping your skin blemish free.
ZAPZYT Acne Wash review by barbies beauty bits and PRIMP

Tip 4: Exfoliation
Next up is the ZAPZYT Pore Clearing Scrub, this product is great for clearing out your pores of dirt, oil and acne-causing bacteria.

The ZAPZYT pore scrub has powerful 2% Salicylic acid and natural wax microbeads that gently exfoliates the skin opening the way for the other ZAPZYT products to penetrate more deeply, making them more efficient.

I like this product because proper exfoliation is essential at all times. Not only does it helps to remove that barrier of dead skin cells that can clog our pores, revealing fresh new skin cells, but it also stimulates cellular turnover that can help with making your skin look brightly polished and radiant.

Exfoliation tips to help acne prone skin by barbies beauty bits

Tip 5: Pore Treatment
ZAPZYT Pore Treatment Gel
This pore treatment gel uses 2% Salicylic Acid, oil and water soluble to cut through greasy skin and penetrates the pores putting the treatment in the heart of that nasty pimple!

I liked that this product was an oil free soothing aloe gel formula as sometimes excess creams can clog your pores and dull the appearance of your skin. Plus, aloe when used in skincare, can help in reducing redness while hydrating aging skin.

Tip 6: Always Have A Spot Treatment Handy
ZAPZYT Acne Treatment Gel
10% benzoyl peroxide – Maximum Strength
The original ZIT Zapper

Nothing is worse than waking up with an unexpected zit on the day of a big event or wine night out with the girls. And this ZIT zapper was created for moments like those to help zap those zits away quickly! Therefore, I keep small sample tubes of this stuff in my purse, at my desk, in my brief case, an overnight bag, as it helps pretty darn quick at Zit Zapping.

A bonus for me, especially with my maturing skin is that it contains no alcohol, so I don’t have to worry about flaky, dry skin.

ZAPZYT Acne Treatment Gel Review by Barbies Beauty Bits and PRIMP

Additional Product Details:
  • Kills acne causing bacteria
  • Clears acne pimples and blackheads fast
  • Oil free, odorless gel vanishes as it clears your skin
  • The maximum strength formula in ZAPZYT Acne Treatment Gel is the same formula recommended by dermatologists.
  • ZAPZYT penetrates deep into your pores where pimples begin, delivering the fastest results possible.
  • ZAPZYT vanishes instantly into your skin giving you quick results.
So as you can see ZAPZYT is a safe, effective and economical skincare solution designed to give you the clear skin you’ve always wanted.

Tip 7: Stop Touching Your Face
Stress can cause us to pick, but don’t! Not only can it cause inflammation, but our hands encounter millions of germs, which you could be transferring to your face. And not only can this make a breakout worse, but bacteria can also lead to premature aging!!!

Tip 8: Your Makeup
Look At The Ingredients
I could do an entire blog post on this, but I will save it for another day.  However, the makeup we are using can cause irritation and dehydration, potentially making your acne stay around longer or lead to more breakouts. So, when you are choosing a foundation, you want to stick with a water-based foundation and stay away from those with alcohol, acrylics, and fillers like mica, silica, and talc.

Makeup ingredients that can cause break out by barbies beauty bits

Remove Your Makeup Before Bed
It is important to remove your makeup every night before you go to bed. Makeup can be magnet and during the day you have picked up dirt and other oils, sleeping in this can lead to clogged pores, it can also contribute to a dull complexion while preventing your skincare products from properly absorbing into your skin.

Tip 10: Beauty Sleep
Beauty sleep is real! The goal is to have 6-8 hours of sleep a night as lacking sleep can cause a lot of adverse effects on your skin besides breakouts, like dark circles under the eyes, bags, and that darn stress hormone can get elevated hurting your skin's quality!

How the lack of sleep can ruin your skin by Barbies Beauty Bits

Tip 11: Eating Healthy
The statement you are what you eat is so true!  Eating foods on the healthier side will make our body feel and look younger.  First, you want to avoid highly processed and preserved foods.  Secondly, reduce the intake of alcohol & salt as these both can cause affect the skin in a negative manner.

So, there you have it, an approach to banishing adult acne that combines quality skincare products from ZAPZYT, alleviating stress, and a daily routine dedicated to improving and preserving one’s skin health!

Where To Purchase ZAPZYT
In addition to purchasing these products on the ZAPZYT website, you can also purchase at some of your local retailers, just in time to ZAP those ZITS!

Until, next time!

Chemical Free Organic Makeup By Suzanne Somers

Chemical Free Organic Makeup By Suzanne Somers And Barbies Beauty Bits

Welcome beauties, to my second post in my Suzanne Somers organic beauty product series. In case you missed the first post which was on skin care, click here.  But today I am going to be sharing with you SUZANNE™ Organics Cosmetics.  For this post, I have once again partnered up with PRIMP and Suzanne Somers to bring you Organic Cosmetics Products. Not only do these products make you look BEAUTYful, but they are also good for your skin, as they are free of parabens and other fillers that can be potentially harmful and suffocate the skin.
Suzanne Somers Organics review by Barbies Beauty Bits

Why Chemical Free Organic Makeup
Before I get into the products, I would like to share some background on the Suzanne Organics line, as there are reasons and passion as to why Suzanne Somers, developed this beauty line.

Many of you may know Suzanne Somers as I do from the popular TV show, Three’s Company.  Being on TV, required makeup and lots of it.  As a cancer survivor, Suzanne became more aware of the stuff she exposed herself to over the years; one was the chemicals in some of the cosmetic products. In all the years of her public appearance, Suzanne used all kinds of makeup, while having no clue about the parabens absorbing into her body.  Nor was she familiar with the fillers that suffocated the skin or that some cosmetics have toxic artificial dyes, which have been banned in the food supply but are still allowed in makeup.  Hence, she came up with SUZANNE™ Organics.

What Is Not In The Makeup
The SUZANNE Organics Makeup Collection is a line that is not only free of some harmful ingredients but as mentioned above it is also good for your skin, now that sounds like a winner to me!  As you can now treat your skin to a nutrient-rich superfood cosmetic line that is also...
  • Pure
  • Health
  • No artificial dyes
  • No synthetic fragrances
  • No lead
  • No chemical binders
  • No PEGs or parabens
  • Cruelty free
  • Made in the USA
  • Gluten-free
The Beneficial Ingredients In The Makeup
While I know people are concerned about what is NOT in the products, what is in them is also ever so important, and this is one thing that I liked about the Suzanne Organics Makeup Collection.

The cosmetics in this line are made with skin-nurturing ingredients like shea butter, jojoba, aloe, argan oil, grape seed oil, bamboo powder, tapioca, rich mineral powders, raspberries, oranges, Vitamin E and more. They also use the power of nature to find the most effective botanical actives for clean, beautiful products to feed, nurture and hydrate our precious skin, while providing the needed coverage that makeup should offer, but with a bonus as this makeup is good for your skin!

Suzanne Organics Makeup Collection by Barbies Beauty Bits

Organic Chemical Free Makeup
I was fortunate to try out a few products from her makeup line. Testing out the products that I most commonly use which is a foundation, mascara, products to highlight and contour and of course a safe UV Free tan with a self-tanner, as the last thing I want it to look older than I am!

Suzanne Organics Sheer Flawless Foundation
First up is the foundation, and this line has four colors. I selected the honey medium foundation, and I will say that the bottle is misleading to the actual color.  Which in my case was a positive as when I first opened the box and pulled out the foundation, I thought it was going to be too dark, but it wasn’t.

The foundation was much thicker than what I like, as I am not a full coverage girl.  I prefer to use foundation to create an even based palette so to speak.  But after applying the foundation, this too while it is heavier than what I like, had superior capabilities to blend seamlessly, so I was pleasantly surprised with the final look. It was not cakey and did not set into my pores.  I did, however, use a primer and a moisturizer before application, which is essential, especially for maturing skin.

Suzanne Organics Sheer Flawless Foundation By Barbies Beauty Bits

Some other things about the foundation
The foundation does have a scent to it, but it is not over powering.  It has organic botanical actives like Aloe Leaf Juice, Tea Tree, Jojoba and Grape Seed Oils as well as some antioxidants, which is a much-added value.

A lot of these ingredients, especially the aloe when used in cosmetics, can help in hydrating aging skin.  Plus, aloe also works as a toner, which can help with keeping your skin firm and glowing! Just what a forty-year-old needs!!!

Suzanne Organics Chemical Free Makeup By Barbies Beauty Bits

Suzanne Organics Perfect Finish Concealer
I was thrilled to see this was a cream based product, as powders, especially when used under the eye can tend to be aging as it settles into fine lines. I prefer a cream base concealer as it is much easier to blend, giving you a dewier look.  Plus, it is usually more pigmented hence it perfect for coverage while only using a small amount.

The ingredients in this camouflaging concealer combines organic shea butter and Jojoba with soothing Lavender and Vitamin E. Lastly, I loved that it was also buildable so you can go from sheer to full coverage without looking cakey.

BONUS TIP: The key to preventing your concealer from sitting in your creases is to moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize under the eye area. With aging skin you do not want a matte look, so make sure to combine the over moisturizing with an eye primer, otherwise you are going to have a problem with your concealer caking into your lines. 

Suzanne Organics Contour Kit
This powder trio includes an organic Contour, Bronzer, and Highlighter all in one set.  This product was the one that I was most excited about as there is so much we can do with contouring kits, like helping to sculpt, define, and highlight our face.

I believe that the older we get that less is more when it comes to some makeup applications. And this trio seems to be versatile enough to allow you to create a very defined and dramatic version or a subtler one that is more elegant and defined, with a focus on highlighting!

Suzanne Organics Contour Kit By Barbies Beauty Bits

As we get older highlighting is a must! It enables us to bring more light in areas, which will offset any imperfections we may have due to loss of elasticity, or fine lines.

To highlight I added the highlighting color down my nose, under my brow bone, on the top of my cheekbone, the middle of my head and the upper part of my lip, which added a radiant glow to my complexion.

One wonderful thing about contouring is you can transform your face. Like giving yourself a thinner face, thinner nose, chiseled jaw or killer cheekbones.

For contouring, I focused on slimming my face by hollowing out my cheeks and adding a more chiseled jaw line by taking my contour brush and sweeping it along my jawline.

Organic Mascara
Mascara is my must have product.  If I were only allowed to have one makeup item, mascara would be it.  This lengthening mascara was created to define your lashes without artificial colorants or petroleum as the last ingredients we want near the delicate eye area are potentially harmful ones.  Suzanne organic mascara contains natural colors combined with the conditioning agents of Aloe and Cocoa Butter that are much safer for the eye area.

Suzanne Organics Golden Tanning Serum by Barbies Beauty Bits

SUZANNE Organics Golden Tanning Serum
I live at the beach, so having a bronzy glow in the summer is a must, but it can be so damaging to the skin. Hence you will not find me laying out in the sun.  Instead, I get a beautiful UV free glow from a self-tanner. Not only do self-tanners even out your skin tone but they can also revitalize and camouflage any imperfections, like helping to make cellulite less noticeable, yeah, right?

To achieve that natural glow, you need to make sure you plan your tan by prepping properly ahead of time, doing so will help to eliminate some of those major self-tanning disasters!

Secondly, you want to do your skin another favor and stay away from products that have high concentrations of alcohol as that can be drying and make your skin look worse over time.  Adding a certified Toxic Free self-tanner like the one from Suzanne Organics not only stimulates melanin production while protecting the skin, it also nurtures and hydrates your skin while giving you a healthy, gorgeous tan.

So, there you have it, some chemical free and organic cosmetics products by SUZANNE™ Organics.  If you are interested in any of the products I suggested or checking out some of her other makeup like her eyeshadows or lipstick, now you can while saving 20% Off by using the code PRIMP20 at checkout!

Must Have Beauty Items For Your Summer Getaway

Must Have Beauty Items For Your Summer Getaway By Barbies Beauty Bits

Every Summer I am always setting aside some must have beauty products to take to my beach house. From smooth bikini ready skin to beach hair, I want to make sure I am prepared for my summer getaway.

So, grab your favorite bikini and sunscreen along with some of these other summer beauty essentials and let’s hit the beach baby!

For this post, I have partnered up on behalf of Single Edition Media, and they have curated a box of summer beauty and fashion products that will help you look and feel your best in the summer heat. So, let’s dig right in!

Must Have Beauty Items For Your Summer Getaway With Babbleboxx By Barbies Beauty Bits

Beach Ready
Beach ready means shorts, sandals, tank tops and of course a bathing suit.  But are you ready to sport those shorts and bikini?

There's nothing more beautiful than the confidence that comes with smooth, radiant skin, and this goes for your bikini line and under arm area as well! And do I have the product for you to help remove those itty bitty and stubborn hairs…

PFB Vanish + Chromabright
This product is perfect for the bikini and underarm area.  Not only does the PFB Vanish + Chromabright help with hair removal, but it also helps with those embarrassing razor bumps and hyperpigmentation. This product has a gentle blend of glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids, so it is not too harsh. It's more than just a hair removal as it helps to lift those ingrown hairs beneath the skin! And bye, bye to those dark underarms areas as it can contribute to diminishing those as well.

I love that this product can be rolled on, it is just the right size to fit into the beach shower or throw in an overnight bag.

Simply Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths
Hanging out at the beach all day can make us hot and sweaty and can sometimes cause a heat rash, yuk I know.  A heat rash is not only uncomfortable it can also be unsightly.  So, having a product that can help us to maintain a natural PH and wipe away that odor-causing bacteria is just what we need in this summer heat.

Simply Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths are perfect for my beach house getaway as they come in portable individually-packaged packets that can easily be tossed into my beach bag to take with me to the beach.  And the scent is tropical as well… Mandarin Blossom & Coconut Water.

Beach Fashion
While I may be relaxing at the beach that does mean my fashion should be on hiatus. Summer is all about mixing fashion and function, and that’s where BABY-G comes in with its latest Casio Baby-G watch.

This beach'n watch in a bold white hue that is perfect for any beach ensemble. And the best part is there is no need to take off this watch when you’re hitting the waves as it is water proof, making it the perfect summer accessory!

Hair And Skin
I love Summertime, weather! However, it doesn't always love us back, especially when it comes to our hair and skin. Every year, people suffer the results of the sizzling summer sun. From sunburns to damaged hair, the sun wreaks havoc upon us in many ways.

So, what is a girl to do? Like my expression, plan your tan, you need to spare the hair too!  So, let’s first start with a hair product...

Treat and Style Your Hair With Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray
This sea salt hairspray does some excellent stuff to my hair, especially the way it allows me to create gorgeous beach waves, with lots of body, lift, and great hold.  The Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray really gives you the textured sexy beach hair look, and it also helps to nourish, protect and heal hair damage with the power of Argan oil, which is a must in the summer months.

Covering Your Hair
When at the beach, I always wear a hat to protect my hair from the hot UV rays of the sun that can be damaging to my locks, so this is one thing I never leave home without.  Additionally, the salt water can turn my blond hair brassy, and that is the last thing I need after spending all that money to lighten my hair.

Even though I may be on a summer getaway, that doesn't mean I should forget about my skincare regimen. The truth of the matter is some adjustments need to be made to maintain the health of your skin under the summer heat and sun. It is well known that the sun can increase the rate at which wrinkles appear, YUK. While those sun rays may feel wonderful, the effects of the sun on our skin is not so wonderful. So, before you run out the door, you want to make sure that you have packed some SPF and some of your other skincare products.

One new skincare product that I will be taking with me is the GLAM Face & Eye Cupping Set.  This cupping set will make a perfect skincare item for my girl's beauty and wine night, and we can all give it a try.

Facial Cupping has been around for a while.  I know recently we have seen a lot more of it on social media. But if done correctly it is supposed to offer an effective and non-invasive way to help stimulate skin renewal. Also, I’ve read that it can assist in minimizing the effects of the sun, environmental damage, and aging. So, since this is being hailed as a natural alternative to Botox or injections, I am going to bring it with me, and the girls and I will give it a try.

What is included in the cupping set?
The LURE GLAM Face & Eye Cupping Set includes 2 Face Cups that can be used for the face, neck, d├ęcolletage, along with 2 Eye Cups and a free exfoliating brush.

Bringing plenty of bottled water is important as you want to make sure you are drinking a lot it! This is one thing I am not good at, but drinking plenty of water will help hydrate and give your hair and skin the internal moisture it needs to look and feel healthy.

Floxsee Portable Tri-fold Mirror
With limited space at the beach house, this mirror is perfect! And the fact that it is portable, adjustable, and hangable, it will be a definite add to my beauty arsenal and will be packed not only for my summer getaway but for all my travels. The Floxsee is tri-fold mirror that allows you to see your hair from any angle, which for me is so important, especially if I am trying to put in my hair extensions!

The mirror can be used in a variety of places like on a table, a vanity, bathroom sink, the beach deck and more!  You can even hang it on a door, as it has adjustable hangers that pull out from the top for easy hanging and if that was enough, it also adjusts to your height and folds flat for easy storage.  In a pinch you can flip this bad boy vertically too as it functions as a foldable full-length mirror. Lastly,  The Floxsee portable tri-fold mirror is made of plastic and break resistant acrylic mirror which makes it safe for travel.
