Friday Follower Freebie x Five!

Today's FFF includes a product review, and in staying with the St. Patrick's Day theme, we've tied everything together in a nice little green display! Because of the generosity of Reviva Labs, we're going to have 5 winners instead of the customary 1 or 2. Each winner will receive 2 bars of Reviva Lab's All Natural Seaweed Soap, 1 bottle of Studio M (formerly Massini) Jade or Energy nail lacquer, and a sprinkling of mint cup candies, all tucked into a festive green bucket!

Reviva Labs is as a company whose origins are in professional skin care salons, and they produce some of the finest skin care available. I know this for a fact because I've been reviewing some of their other products (which I'll post about later this month), and am nothing short of being very impressed with them. I don't post all of the product lines I review, because honestly, if I don't care for them, I don't want to spend the time to post a formal review. Now if something were to be completely unacceptable for whatever reason, I would certainly inform you of that, because I would want you to be aware. There are many mediocre beauty/skincare products out there, but the ones I'm interested in and the ones that I want to make you aware of, are the ones I choose to spend my time on. With that being said, on to the review!

The All Natural Seaweed Soap, is a vegetable based soap made from palm and coconut oils. The seaweed grains provide gentle exfoliation while also removing impurities from your skin. Seaweed has long been touted as a skin care product for it's diverse cleansing and anti-cellulite properties. This soap also contains glycerin to help your skin maintain the softness imparted from the coconut and palm oils. I've been using this soap for over a week now and have no negative issues with it. It lathers up nicely and rinses clean without any drying effect on my skin. It has a light fragrance and the seaweed grains seem to be just the right size to do the job right without any scratching on my skin. What I like the most about this soap is how moisturized my skin feels. Normally, especially in the still-cool weather we're having, my skin feels like I need to apply a moisturizer to it. After using this soap, I no longer have that feeling. I was even able to enlist my husband to help me out with this review, and if you knew my husband, that doesn't happen too often! He was just as pleased as I was with it and has been using his bar faithfully. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I always enjoy using natural based products. Reviva Labs is known for their ability to provide many natural and effective products, and although I had heard of them, it wasn't until I read through some of their literature that I realized exactly what this company was all about. They have been in business for over 37 years, and their founder, Stephen Strassler, was one of the first Aestheticians in the U.S. They offer a wide range of basic and specialty skincare products, which can be found in many health food stores, and on their website. All of the ingredients for each product can be found on their site, and there are a number of navigational links at the top of the page filled with useful information on skin care.

THE RULES: You must be a follower to enter. You must leave your eMail address below in the comments section as your entry. You must submit your entry no later than midnight tomorrow, March 13. Remember, there will be 5 winners! Good luck!

*Reviva Lab products were furnished by the company for a review and prizes.
