Forever Living - Review

* I'm very excited about today's post and to tell you about these amazing products 
I've recently sampled!

My lovely friend Jenna is a Healthy Living & Well being guru for Forever Living and very kindly sent me a few samples of her products to try out.
I had six samples to try, plus a massive bar of Avocado Face & Body Soap, which I actually won at one of her online parties! I'll get to that later!

So, I got to try out Forever Bright Toothgel, Aloe-Jojoba Shampoo and Aloe-Jojoba Conditioning Rinse, Aloe Vera Gelly, Aloe Propolis Creme and the Aloe Moisturizing Lotion.

The thing with all Forever products, which there are so many ranging from health & beauty products, fitness & weight management and even products for your pets and home. Forever's products are made from aloe vera plants and are completely pure and so versatile that they can be used as a drink, as well as on the skin.

Forever products carry the Islamic Seal of Approval, Kosher Rating, they are Certified by International Aloe Science Council and my personal favorite, they have the Leaping Bunny Logo, which means they are completely not tested on animals! Happy days!


OK, so here are my thoughts on a few of the products I sampled...

Forever Bright Toothgel
I loved this! I found it to be very gentle and was good with my sensitive teeth. It left my mouth feeling super clean and fresh all day! I definitely had that 'back from the dentist clean feeling'.

Aloe-Jojoba Shampoo & Aloe-Jojoba Conditioning Rinse
At first I found the shampoo quite thick, but then I read 'it is concentrated, so use sparingly'! So this was probably my fault, lol! You really only need a tiny bit! It foamed up and washed out well. I was really impressed with the conditioner, the smell was gorgeous, it really had that 'salon' smell to it and conditioned my hair so well. When I dried my hair it felt so soft, clean and healthy. I had no fly-away bits (which I get a lot!) and my hair had a lovely shine to it!

Aloe Moisturizing Lotion
I really liked this moisturizing lotion. I used this on my legs, arms and hands. I do suffer from dry skin especially on my hands, it can get quite bad sometimes. I found this lotion very moisturizing and felt lovely on my skin! I was really impressed how quickly the dry skin on my hands started to soften, after using this just a couple of times.

Aloe Propolis Creme
This creme helps keep a healthy and balanced skin tone and also helps to soothe irritation. I used this on my face, as it is also recommended as an every day moisturizer too. When I applied it I thought it was quite thick, but as the creme dried it was very light and I didn't feel it on my skin at all. Because it is a natural anti-biotic it is great for eczema, psoriasis, acne, rough skin, chapped hands, stings and dry skin, warts and nappy rash.

Aloe Vera Gelly
I thought this was great! This gel again is really an all rounder which can be used for many different conditions. I had the most awful cut on my finger that had been there for ages and wasn't healing. I applied some of this gel and it healed up the next day! I also put some around the skin by my fingernails, as I'm terrible for picking the skin, gross I know! Anyway, the Aloe Vera Gelly completely softened the area and cleared the damaged skin up really well. I think this Aloe Vera Gelly is definitely a household staple, as it is so versatile, it really can be used on all sorts of skin irritations and complaints. The Gelly quickly soothes the skin, so it's great for sunburn and burns. Also, Aloe Vera Gelly is a good remedy for your cracked heels and then if you apply some Propolis Creme, it will make them nice and smooth - ready for flip-flop season!

I mentioned earlier about 'winning' this soap at one of Jenna's online parties. She regularly holds them where you can read all about the products, take advantage of special offers and at the end you can sometimes win a prize, which is always good fun.

This soap is now in our bathroom and both my husband and I use it every day. It foams up really well and leaves your skin feeling so clean and refreshed. It's ideal for all skin types.

Overall, I was really impressed with the Forever Living products I tried. They really have something for everyone. They have a wide range of health and beauty products, weight management products, products for a healthy lifestyle and even for your pets and home. 
Definitely a brand that you need to check out!

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
