As an Ambassador for NOW Foods, I get to try a lot of their products, so I figured I’d share a few of the things I’m currently using & loving at the moment! You can also read about some of my long-time FAVES from NOW here!
3 Things I’m Loving from NOW Foods
- Vitamin E Cream 28,000 IU Intense Moisture – You’ve heard me talk about this before, but I’ve never really relied on a product as much as I have with this one, especially in the last few months! An absolute must-have! It’s currently Winter here in NJ, which of course means dry skin… but on top of that – I recently had my 8th Breast Cancer Reconstruction Surgery, which adds another layer of itchiness, & irritation to my already sensitive skin. In the past, I’ve only really used it on incisions & scars for the most part – but I’ve recently been using it from head-to-toe (including on my face, under my eyes & on my hands), & it’s made such a difference in my skin! So much so… that even though NOW sent me some of this, I actually ordered more on my own (from PureFormulas – they have FREE & Fast Shipping!) because I was running really low & couldn’t bear to be without it! And… I actually got to see them making it when I went to their HQ in Chicago last summer, which makes it even cooler! Definitely check it out!
- Clear The Air Essential Oil Blend – I snagged this Blend in NOW’s Seasonal Changes Balancing Essential Oil Kit – which I love, BTW! The Kit includes 4 bottles of different oils that are all really great for colds, allergies, germs, natural air purification, etc., but you can also but this one on its own! It has: Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Hyssop, & Rosemary Oil in it, & works really well for my Sinuses, as well as my Mom – who has COPD. When I’m not feeling well, I either diffuse it or, I add a few drops to the shower (away from the stream of water so it doesn’t wash away immediately). I currently have their Ultrasonic Glass Swirl Diffuser, but really want their NEW Ultrasonic Ceramic Stone one, because the base seems a little more narrow & I think it will fit better on my desk. I also use this daily by adding it to my Mini Himalayan Salt Stick Inhaler (FYI: I have a different brand, but this one’s similar). I like to get them without any oils added, & add my own – since I’ve purchased a few where the oils were rancid & I had to throw them out. Keeping my Salt Stick next to the bed reminds to take a few breaths each day, & Pro-Tip – it also helps with dryness on an airplane if traveling!
- Coconut Water Slender Sticks – My first time trying these was on my trip to NOW in Chicago last summer, & although I don’t love the taste (yep, you read that right), I love the product! While I definitely don’t count calories, & they don’t taste like the Coconut Water I was wanting & expecting, they definitely get the job done! Last summer I did a 30-Day Detox program where electrolytes were absolutely vital, & I used these religiously, along with my usual Electrolyte Drink – Ultima Replenisher. I personally use like using both together, not only for the taste… but, I also find that I have better results, then when using either of them separately. I use these during & after Work Outs, Infrared Sauna Sessions, Coffee Enemas, & on sweltering Summer Days! While I love the little stick packets that fit perfectly into my water bottles, I wish there were an option to buy it in bigger containers as well, since I go through it so quickly!
