REVIEW: LATHER Survive and Thrive Holiday Survival Kit

As I sit looking out the window, the snow is coming down steadily.  It is the day before Thanksgiving, I've been baking since yesterday, and I had to rush out in a panic to get a few ingredients I forgot to get during my initial big time Thanksgiving grocery shopping trip.  I dreaded hitting the grocery store the day before Thanksgiving, I am already tired, sore, and stressed, and one more hiccup on my journey to get everything perfect for tomorrow was not a welcome surprise.  Thank god I had my LATHER Survive and Thrive holiday survival kit on hand to use to help whisk away the pain and stress that the holiday season tends to bring upon us.

I am so thankful and grateful that the innovative brand LATHER has put together such a blissful and delightful Survive and Thrive holiday survival kit to help keep us physically and emotionally prepared to overcome any and all holiday obstacles that may cross our paths so we can be joyous and stress-free throughout the holiday season and beyond into the New Year.

If you are not familiar with the LATHER brand, let me briefly introduce it to you:

REVIEW: Callanan Nylon Puff Trooper Hat

Snow, Cold, Winter, bring it on because I am armed and ready with this awesomely cool Callanan Black Puff Trooper Hat!  The temperatures are dropping but I am going to remain warm and stylish in this super hip designer hat from Callanan.  I have been wanting a hat in this fabulous style for quite some time.  So, when I had the opportunity to review it, I was quick to jump at the chance.  I also felt it was an ideal chance to me to include this Callanan Black Puff Trooper Hat in this season's holidays reviews.  This hat will make a perfect holiday gift!  

If you are not familiar with the Callanan brand, here is a brief introduction to it.

{Adapted from the Lipton Publicity Press Release}

The Callanan brand is a true leader in the women's sector. Established in 1987, the Callanan hat collection has been a marketplace favorite for almost thirty years. John Callanan started on his own but several years later met with Dorfman Pacific, where he has been designing his collection for the last 18 years, as one of the Dorfman Pacific brands. His label is one of the premier, high end brands for this leading hat company that boasts more than 20 brands within its portfolio.

Once again, the hat designs by leading milliner John Callanan carry the Dorfman Pacific standard of great hat styling and high quality. Designer, John Callanan knows how to perfectly proportion shapes and how to incorporate decoration and detailing that is always exactly right, and expertly crafted with the ideal blend of materials. Each hat is supremely chic and elegant and appeals to a wide range of women who like just the right blend of edgy fashion and great taste.   


The folks over at Lipton Publicity sent me the Callanan Puff Trooper Hat in the color black.  It is distinctive and sleek and so super soft and warm!  I absolutely love the look of it and for some reason, when I put it on, it makes me feel young and carefree!  It has that youthful yet classic styling that just makes you feel good about yourself.  Here are the details about it:

Callanan Puff Trooper Hat
Price:  $30
Style No.:  LV231
Color:  Available in Black, Silver, Red and Chocolate


Nylon PUFF TROOPER with a warm fleece lining and faux fur trim. Available in chocolate, red, silver and black, it retails for $30 and is the ideal winter accessory. Since it is one size and has so much universal appeal, it is perfect for a self purchase or gift giving.


The very first thing I noticed when I opened the package and saw this remarkable hat was how shimmery and sleek the hat appeared.   It may be geared for outdoor rugged terrain, but do not be fooled, it is one hip and stately hat that will keep you looking fashion forward, warm and dry during the harsh winter months.  It is expertly rendered, made of the finest workmanship, and it is going to stand the test of time in the extreme outdoor elements for years to come.

The faux fur that borders the entire hat is so soft and feels blissful against your skin.  There is nothing uncomfortable about this hat when you are wearing it, in fact, it feels incredibly soothing and comforting and it will keep you feeling that way all winter long when you venture outside to brave the elements.

Whether you are wearing a sporty winter down coat, or a dressier long winter coat, you can incorporate this hat into your outdoor attire.  The glistening nylon material gives it that versatile styling that works with casual as well as dressy winter apparel.  Also, the faux fur accents that embody this hat also gives it that sort of "mink" look which adds an element of glamour to the hat.

So treat yourself to a chic and warm hat this winter season that is going to protect you as you are out and about in the cold.  And, I highly recommend giving this Callanan Puff Trooper Hat as a gift to someone who thinks they have everything.  It is sure to delight them!!

This concludes my review.

A very special thank you to Lipton Publicity for providing me with Puff Trooper Hat to use for this review.

REVIEW: Vine Vera Resveratrol Skin Care

I would like to kick off my 7th annual season of Holiday reviews with an epic one and this is it! This couture brand of skin care is so indulgent and divine, that I feel it would make an ideal holiday gift for someone you love, who takes pride in the care of their skin and enjoys the finer things in life.  You may think buying holiday gifts is hard because the people you buy for seem to have everything.  Well, they probably don't have a jar of Vine Vera in their homes, so surprise them with the gift of healthy, beautiful skin for months to come!

Giving the gift of a Vine Vera product will make someone's holiday memorable, but also remember to treat yourself and your skin to some major TLC this holiday season.  Get your own skin Winter ready with one of Vine Vera's ultra pampering, highly effective skin care products.  Before I get into my review of the Vine Vera products,  let me briefly introduce the extraordinary Vine Vera Company to you:

{Adapted from the Vine Vera Website}

For centuries people have been searching for the Fountain of Youth to no avail. Vine Vera has found the well kept anti-aging secret, Resveratrol. Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in red wine and grapes. This substance is usually created in the outer layers of the grapes. Years of research has shown several benefits to this miraculous ingredient.

The use of Resveratrol is believed to help slow the aging process and retain a timeless youthful appearance. As a naturally occurring antibiotic, Resveratrol works to cleanse the body of impurities. As a result, it helps maintain the skins health and elasticity while preventing new wrinkles and reducing the appearance of existing ones. Resveratrol contains antioxidants that will eliminate the free radicals responsible for the appearance of wrinkles and is a key ingredient in all our skincare products.

Vine Vera has formulated Resveratrol alongside other extraordinary anti-aging ingredients into miracle formulas for all types of skin. We are committed to rejuvenating your skin so that you may achieve the lifelong younger looking skin you’ve always wanted.


Vine Vera generously sent me three of their best selling skin care products to review.  Within the Vine Vera brand there are a total of seven Collections as well as a category for Eye Care products and products for Men.  I was asked which products I may be interested in reviewing, and I could not make up my mind.  There are just so many sensational sounding products to choose from!  I wanted to say let me try them all, so I asked the company to decide what to send me.  And, Vine Vera could not have sent me 3 better products, because they are all fabulous.

My skin has never been in finer shape and I know it is as a result of the following 3 products I've been using from Vine Vera:

Vine Vera Resveratrol Pinot Noir Longevity Cream
Size: 3.88 oz / 110 gr 


This unique formula was created to lengthen the skin’s natural, youthful glow and restore the radiance that has been lost. Formulated with Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate), Citrus Fruit Extract, and Resveratrol, this light, yet effective, cream will help diminish signs of aging.


As you can see from my image, this face cream is super emollient and creamy!  It is the creme de la creme of face creams, believe me!  I have been using it every morning for over 3 weeks now, I have barely made a dent in the gigantic jar, and my face has never been more dewy and glowing as it is right now.  I am positive it is because of this product.  The cream is so rich and luxurious that you need to use about a quarter size amount for your entire face and neck.  I have been using it on my neck as well.  It has a very slight fragrance, just a sweet fresh scent, but barely noticeable.

My skin is more radiant, the wrinkles I was beginning to see were those frown lines and parenthesis on each side of my mouth, and those are measurably diminished.  I am thrilled with the results of this amazing cream and I know with continued use it is going to prevent further signs of aging from appearing.
I believe that one of the top reasons a skin care product can reap successful rewards is if you remain true and consistent with your daily morning and evening skin care routines.  If you stray from it regularly, you will not experience optimum results.  So I have been applying this product every morning on cleansed skin and my hard work has paid off.  I highly recommend this outstanding longevity cream.

Vine Vera Resveratrol Malbec DNA Midnight Cream

Size: 50 gr / 1.76 oz 


Reverse the appearance of damage done during the day with this light, gentle cream. Formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Vitamin E and Resveratrol, this night formula will give you younger looking skin by morning


Oh my goodness, this nighttime product is the best!  It is a super lightweight semi-opaque lotion that you apply every night to clean skin that works wonders on your skin overnight.  I probably apply more product to my skin than I need to, but for some reason my skin immediately responds to it and soaks it right in.  So I tend to reapply it over areas I already have just to insure my skin is drinking in enough.

The lotion is non-greasy, glides over your skin like silk, and feels totally blissful all night long.  I have in the past had some skin reactions to products that contain some of the ingredients in this product.  But so far I have not experienced any redness, blotchy patches or breakouts from using this product.  In fact, just the opposite!  I wake up with soft, radiant skin that looks much better than it used to look in the mornings when I would wake up.

I cannot express enough how delightful using this product has been.  It is easy to apply to my clean skin, just about 3 pumps of product is all I need to hydrate and treat my entire face.  I am pretty sure this will be the first product from this review that I run out of, and it will be imperative for me to replace it immediately.  I never want my skin to go without it again. I feel confident that by using this product my skin won't be aging any time soon, wow, maybe there is a fountain of youth after all!

Vine Vera Resveratrol Eye Collection Dark Circle Eye Cream
Size: 1 fl. oz / 30 gr


This cream will immediately reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffy eyes. Formulated with Resveratrol (Pitchia/Resveratrol Ferment Extract), Caffeine and Vitamins A (Retinyl Palmitate ) and E (Tocopheryl Acetate) to reduce the immediate look of tired eyes, while hydrating the delicate eye area.


I never get enough sleep, my eyes are always puffy when I wake up in the morning, and the skin around my eyes sags and looks wrinkly crinkly when I don't hydrate it enough.  So, I am very faithful about using an eye cream both morning and night because I am bound and determined to cure all those unflattering, aging issues that I have to struggle to overcome.

I've been religiously gently applying this cream to the area under eyes and along orbital bone using my ring finger. I have not skipped a day in over 3 weeks and I am noticing such a dramatic improvement to the skin around my eyes!  It was not an instant fix, but I believe that my being diligent in consistently applying this product morning and night has allowed the eye cream to work its magic diminish the signs of aging around my eyes.  My fine lines around the eyes are barely discernible and no more signs of sagging eyelids since using this product, YAY!

As you can tell from my picture, the eye cream is a thick rich consistency.  You only need a small amount of this ultra luxurious eye cream.  It is non-greasy and glides like silk over my delicate around the eye skin and it is immediately absorbed leaving my skin feeling moisturized and firm.  I really love it and this jar is going to last me months and months!

This concludes my review.

REVIEW: Mad Hippie Face Cream

We received our first snowfall last night, only a dusting, but I know Winter is right around the corner and I need to make sure that I am ready to battle the harsh cold winter months in every aspect.  I am always on the hunt for the very best skin care products to protect and nourish my skin.  So it is with such excitement that I share my latest skin care discovery with you.  Mad Hippie offers an extensive range of natural, safe skin care products to protect the skin from the harmful effects of environmental factors.  Their goal is to create the safest, most effective products on the market using scientifically advanced actives coupled with Mother Nature's finest antioxidants.  So be prepared to be intrigued and fascinated with Mad Hippie as I already am.

{Adapted from the Mad Hippie Website}

Here at Mad Hippie we take skin care seriously, but we also take corporate responsibility seriously.

We know and appreciate the faith a customer puts into a company when buying their line, and that’s why we strive to always make the safest, most effective products possible. Unfortunately, the beauty care industry is riddled with companies that are strictly profit-minded and willing to fill their products with anything if it is cheap, regardless of the health consequences to the consumer. Call us hippies, but we just don’t feel that’s right.

Here at Mad Hippie we wouldn’t put anything into our skin care products that we wouldn’t feel comfortable putting on to our own skin. Ever.

It can’t stop there though. We also take our responsibility to the planet seriously and that’s why we are always working to further reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. From recently switching to some of the only BPA-free, fully recyclable airless pumps on the market, to printing entirely with soy inks, to running our entire facility off of alternative energy, Mad Hippie is dedicated to the preservation of the environment.

So, give our natural skin care products a try and feel good knowing you are taking a step towards healthier, more beautiful skin, while we work together towards a healthier, more beautiful planet.


I received a full size bottle of Mad Hippie Face Cream which is an antioxidant rich peptide face cream.  Formulated with 12 actives, including peptides, acai, argan oil and resveratrol, this natural revitalizing face cream reduces the appearance of wrinkles and creates smooth, healthy skin.  By leaving out harmful chemicals, parabens, synthetic color and fragrance, Mad Hippie helps skin achieve true harmony.

All Mad Hippie products are made in the USA, never tested on animals and are packaged in BPA-Free, recycleed and fully recyclable bottles.

Price:  $25.99
Size:  30 ml
Available at:  Select Whole Foods Markets and


Packed to the brim with peptides and actives, our face cream is formulated to kick-start collagen production while Mother Nature’s best antioxidants neutralize aging free radicals.

I was not planning to list every super star ingredient contained in this Mad Hippie Face Cream, but as I learned more and more about each one and the benefits of them all, I felt compelled to point them all out to you.  I don't think I have ever used a face cream before that has so many truly superior ingredients in it until now, until this outstanding face cream from Mad Hippie.  I have only been using it for a week now, but already I can say I think it is extraordinary!  It is genuine flower power, natural antioxidants and active essentials that work hand in hand to liberate the skin from signs of aging.  All the ingredients work together to achieve true harmony and my skin is loving the TLC treatment!

From the moment I pumped a dollop of this rich luxurious face cream on my skin, it glides like silk onto the skin and my skin glows with luminous happiness.  You can smell the natural ingredients, it is such a blissful ritual, and I feel a sense of peace of mind knowing that this product is safe and pure for my skin.  The cream is rich and robust, very hydrating, but not overly so.  It is definitely great for my dry skin, but it can work with all skin types.  It is gentle and calming, and you can feel it being absorbed into your skin, slowly feeding it with the nutrients it longs for.

My skin is feeling rejuvenated and I can tell that already that collagen production is being enhanced by the peptides.  I cannot give this product anything but my highest praise and recommendation.  

I am so thrilled to be able to kick start this winter season with a face cream that is going to work magic to keep my skin radiant and healthy throughout the bitter cold winter months.

This concludes my review.

A few weeks back I reviewed some NeoCell collagen based products, if you did not get a chance to read it, you may read it HERE.

Here is a brief introduction to the NeoCell brand:

NeoCell has been developing and manufacturing all natural, premium anti-aging formulas for over 20 years and is the leading Collagen brand in the world. Their products are naturally based, not synthetic, and are designed to promote youthful health, beauty and total body wellness. They manufacture their own products using carefully sourced food-grade raw materials and their facility exceeds all GMP standards.

The fabulous folks over at NeoCell sent me 3 of their top selling products to review.  I should say they sent 'us' because my Mom has been faithfully using one of the products for over 6 weeks now and she is just thrilled with it! Here are the details on these 3 sensational products that are sure to thrill you as well:



Feed Your Skin With Delectable Bursts of Nutrients!

Having beautiful and radiant skin has never been so easy- or so delicious. NeoCell Biotin Bursts deliver high potency beauty nutrients in a delectable, gourmet soft chew. Formulated based off of scientifically proven ingredients NeoCell Biotin Bursts offer a delicious alternative to your daily biotin regimen.

Next up is another spectacular product:



Hyaluronic Acid: Nature's Moisturizer

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) capsules give your skin and joints the quenching hydration that they crave.

HA is one of nature's most water loving molecules and its role in the control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin, as well as provide lubrication to the joints and eyes.

NeoCell’s HA Benefits:

  • Provides the most bio-available form of hyaluronic acid
  • Holds 1,000 times its weight in water for cushioning of joints
  • Assists in cell turnover in the skin
  • Powerful aid in skin hydration and wrinkle reduction
  •  Lubricates the surface of the eye
HA in the Joints:

As we age, the HA content in our bodies naturally decreases. One way this decrease manifests is from UV radiation which breaks down collagen fibers causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Hyaluronidase, an enzyme produced by free radicals, is an enzyme that also breaks down collagen fibers. HA counteracts this enzyme by plumping the inner layers of the epidermis in a more effective way than topical HA application alone; by hydrating the skin from the inside, HA creates a more youthful skin environment, thus reducing wrinkles.

HA is found in high concentrations in the joints. HA’s unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication to the joints.

Eye problems such as poor vision and dry eyes can also manifest when HA decreases in the body. HA is an important constituent of the ocular tissue and is essential for normal functioning of the eye.


Prior to my receiving this product I really was not aware of what hyaluronic acid is and how taking it can be so beneficial to so many aspects of my body that are important to me.  After I learned the importance and significance of taking hyaluronic acid, I made sure to begin this regimen and stick to it faithfully.  I have been very good at taking it twice a day, on an empty stomach, and while it is hard to say with 100% accuracy how much improvement I have noticed, as results are not going to be as visibly obvious, I feel a sense of peace of mind knowing that the hyaluronic acid I am taking is going to give my skin, eyes and joints the quenching hydration that they need.  I am going to stay on hyaluronic acid indefinitely because I truly believe, after discovering what it can do for me, that over time I will see a noticeable improvement in specifically the condition of hydration in my joints and eyes, and skin.  The control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body sounds like a vital process and knowing that by my taking the hyaluronic acid it is aiding in that transport is what will drive me to maintain taking it for years to come.

You can purchase this hyaluronic acid at the following retail locations:

And last I have given my Mom a chance to use this truly innovative and effective product from NeoCell:



Keratin hair volumizer is an all-natural solution for strong, lustrous, and thick healthy hair that starts from the inside. Dry, brittle, thinning hair is associated with a lack of nutrients that are essential to strong and resilient hair. Keratin Hair Volumizer contains clinically proven ingredients to enhance hair strength and reduce normal hair loss.

Key Ingredients:

Cynatine HNS Solubilized Keratin: The ability to convert natural keratin into a functional form that is bio-available to the body is a recent advancement. Cynatine HNS® is solubilized enabling it to be both bioactive and bioavailable in the body, which allows it to bind with hair. Cynatine HNS® has been clinically proven to reduce hair loss from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and luster of hair.

Hydrolyzed Super Collagen: Hydrolyzed Super Collagen™ is a structural component of hair, skin and nail health. Super Collagen™ is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which are the main constituents of collagen in the hair. Research suggests that collagen supplementation stimulates fibroblasts at the hair root, resulting in increased diameter of the hair shaft. NeoCell's pharmaceutical grade Super Collagen™ is enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing a collagen amino acid ratio with low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability.

Keratin Hair Volumizer is available at the select fine retailers below:


As I discussed in my initial review of Keratin hair volumizer, I gave it to my Mom to use because she has been experiencing some hair loss due to age, stress, and perhaps some heredity factors.  So this is a follow up to that initial review.

My Mom has been using the Keratin hair volumizer nutraceutical capsules for over 6 weeks now.  She is faithfully sticking to the regimen and would not be doing so if she was not seeing visible results.  She feels her hair is much healthier, and I can see that it is as well.

Her hair is is stronger, new growth is visible where there had been some thinning, and it is much shinier and less brittle.  Although my Mom does eat a very healthy diet full of nutrients, and she does take daily vitamins, she was obviously missing some of the key nutrients that she needed to help keep her hair healthy.  While I feel everyone will experience different levels of results, I can't help but think everyone who takes Keratin hair volumizer capsules will see some improvement.  For my Mom, it is beginning to look like a significant improvement.  

My mom's results have been subtle over the last 6 weeks, but with continued use I know that over the course of several months her hair will be back in fine health and so much fuller and that will give her so much joy and confidence.  I am thrilled with the results I am seeing with use of Keratin hair volumizer.


I cannot express enough how effective these NeoCell nutraceutical products are and the 3 products I previously reviewed.  The condition of my hair, skin and nails has never been better, and that is saying a lot!  And, my Mom's hair is definitely fuller, shinier, and a whole lot stronger than it has been in several years.  My feeling is that you have to live a healthy lifestyle, eat properly, get adequate sleep, drink plenty of water and follow an exercise routine several times a week, but sometimes adding a few nutritional supplements can ensure that you are getting the accurate nutrients to specifically address areas of concern, which in this case are skin, hair and nails.
