My Favorite Hard Lotion, Soap & Lip Balms
Do you have rough feet, or cracked skin on your fingers? Do you have sensitivities to chemicals or fragrances that give you headaches? Are you a lip balm addict? MadeOn: Skin Care Products are your solution to all of that & so, so much more! There are no chemicals in any of their products, and only pure essential oils in the products that are scented. It was a complete fluke that I found this company about 8 years ago, and now I could not live with out their products. Not kidding! This may seem like a shameless commercial, but it’s my blog & I’ll gush if I want too. Hee hee hee! I was desperately seeking a source of goat’s milk soap, because my local soap guy just disappeared off the face of the earth one day. Anything other than pure goat’s milk soap makes my skin break out, so this is a non-negotiable item. MadeOn was offering a bonus hard lotion gift with the purchase of a bundle I bought, so I said, “Hey, it’s free, let’s give it a try.” When I went to their site to order I realized they had the goat’s milk soap I was looking for, and the rest is history.
I spend a lot time in the kitchen cooking, doing dishes, and I often can’t be bothered putting on dish gloves. In spite of that, I have not had a cracked or split finger tip in 5 years! And lemme tell you – Maine winters are not forgiving on the skin! (Neither is my summer gardening.) My feet, oh, let me tell you about my feet! I can confidently show you my heels year round. How many women my age can brag about their feet? I don’t get pedicures either! I hop out of the shower, put a little Foot Rub on my heels: Done! Staying well hydrated helps your skin healthy as well. I ditched my expensive face creams too! Nothin’ but their Lavender Roller on my wrinkles, and then Simply Shea all over my face and neck. If you had asked me if I thought I would get regular compliments on my skin after 50, I would have laughed hysterically at you. Crazy, but true, and all the credit goes to MadeOn! I’ve saved a TON of money on my skin care, and my skin has never looked better.
I became Renee’s personal health coach, and then came on board with MadeOn to be their Functional Medicine Health Coach Consultant for their Wellness Workshops.

My Favorite Mineral Make-up
This is my absolute favorite make-up that have been using for several years now. Emily makes every order by hand; it is all custom. It arrives in an adorable gift box, tied with a bow, a little sprig of lavender, and an encouraging note. I made a VERY gradual transition to mineral makeup. The thought of throwing away usable product was just too much for me to bear! Let’s just say I’m thrifty. 😀 As I would run out of one product I would replace it with a Redeeming Beauty Mineral product. I’m sure there are some of you that would gleefully fill your trash can with the old & bust out the new, but that wasn’t me & that’s o.k. I am now 100% RBM & loving every moment of it!!!!
I’d like to give a shout out to my photographer who was an absolute sweetheart! If you are in the New England area, not sure what her radius is, definitely look her up. She has won many awards in our area. Plus: did you see how HANDSOME she made my dog look?!! WOW!!
