If you’re like me, you like to keep your lips from cracking or peeling in cold weather. That’s why I wanted to include shea nut & rosehip organic lip formula. First off winter is literally trying to break the door down in Toronto with gale force winds, and dropping temperatures this week. I used this lip formula last winter, in fact, I saved it for this winter, keeping warm and moisturised is a definite priority in Canada. So what can I tell you about it?
Lips Are Delicate
The skin on the lips is very thin and prone to stress especially during extreme bouts of weather. Shea nut & rosehip organic lip formula has organic shea butter and rosehip oil with two base oils consisting of vitamins A & E. It will replenish lost moisture, protect your lips and make them very soft and smooth when used frequently. It smells deliciously delicate, but not synthetic. If your lips are dry or chapped the essential oils have a natural antiseptic to reduce possible infection.
Is It Gluten-Free?
Yes, it is! This is a big deal if you’re allergic to gluten. I worked with a colleague who suffered from Celiac’s Disease and it was challenging for him to find food and products that were gluten-free. Apparently, it’s in everything. So look no further the shea nut & rosehip lip formula can be used by everyone. Made with 99% organic ingredients and retailing at $12 it’s great value for your money because it lasts a long time. There are three more mystery products going into this box, I’m determined to get it into the hands of one lucky winner before Christmas. Don’t forget, enter to win and tweet @thinkmaghq using the hashtag #coldweathercomfort to let me know. This contest is open to Canadian Residents Only.
This seaweed salt scrub could be the answer you’re looking for. If you suffer from those nasty little bumps on the back of your arms and legs then you’ll be happy to know they’re on their way to vanishing for good. You see exfoliation is great for turning over new skin cells and getting rid of the old sticky ones that form layer upon layer of dead skin producing those pesky little bumps. Plus for so many of us winter sucks all the moisture from our skin making those bumps show up even more. Now if you don’t suffer from this skin ailment, exfoliation is great for everyone. It stimulates new cell growth, it leaves your skin very soft and silky, and it gives your skin a nice healthy glow.

What are Freedomes and why should you care? Well if you’re a camper this is a glamorous way to take your camping level up to the next level. They are space-age pop-up domes that can go up in rapid speed to accommodate as many people as you like. It can be used as a pop-shop for events or conferences and it will draw attention which could mean more sales. Freedomes have white powder coated stainless steel frames that create an extremely strong geodesic dome. They can be heated or cooled down using air-conditioning. Just imagine attending the Burning Man Festival with your very own A/C domed utopia? You can even join up two domes via a transparent tunnel if you require more space.

They are an answer for sun-protection or even a temporary space in your back garden. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. A private party for 20 of your close friends with entertainment of your choosing can be easily accommodated. The membrane offers a white background ( and now comes in forest green, lake gray, or canyon brown) or you can backlight with any colours you desire. Setting up A/V equipment isn’t a problem, the structure can support sound systems or projectors.The smallest dome fits up to 44 people standing room only or 20 people seated at tables. Throw down a couple of rugs, a few comfortable chairs, pouffes and you’ve got yourself an easy pop-up sanctuary or add a desk and you’ve got a new office space for your next entrepreneurial venture. Do you know what you could use this for?
Wild Rose Beauty Balm is the first product to be included in the Nea’s Yard Giveaway and it is definitely a product you need in your life. I’ve been testing it out for two months now and I must say it has exceeded my expectations. I have oily skin, so I’m always reluctant to put anything oily on my skin. Even though I know there are non-oily oils and oily oils, the thought of putting oil on my skin makes me a little nervous.
With optimism taking hold I started using the Wild Rose Beauty Balm at night only. The first thing I noticed was the incredible fragrance of roses and the calming effect it had. Sometimes the smell of roses can be rather nauseating but this had such a natural pure smell, you won’t be able to get it enough. I was surprised to see how fast it absorbed too so I started using it day and night. I also noticed it really calmed down my skin, it felt really buttery and dewy, and my skin produced less oil.
Not only can this balm be used as a moisturiser, it can also be used as a lip balm, an exfoliator, a cleanser, even a masque. So far I’ve used it as cuticle moisturiser, a lip balm (I tend to put any residue I have on my fingers on my lips) and I’ve even used it on my feet. The Wild Rose Beauty Balm should be called the wonder balm for all its uses. It can also be used on psoriasis and eczema, insect bites, scar treatment, Shall I keep going? The list is endless. If you can think of a reason to calm down your skin, soothe your skin or alleviate dryness the Wild Rose Baum is your go to product.
Wild Rose Baum is 99% organic ingredients. It is gluten free and comes with a muslin cloth. It has a cult-like following with everyone who has tried it. It is an award-winning product and can be used on all skin types. It comes in a beautiful dark blue glass jar and is highly concentrated. A little goes a long way so expect to have this product for quite awhile.

The cyclist’s companion has been the trusted compass for as long as I can remember, but as technology is at the heart of almost everything these days it came as no surprise to learn about a new app for cyclists called Haize. Recently funded through Kickstarter, Haize is set to be in the market sometime in 2016 but what is it exactly and how does it work? Well, Haize acts like a compass, guides you like a compass but by using wearable technology to make it far more efficient and safer for urban cyclists.
Haize is the cyclist’s companion for the 21st century because it has reinvented the compass combining smartphone and GPS technology so you can find your destination safely whilst your mobile remains in your pocket. Made of anodised machined aluminium a reusable material it’s built to last so if you do take a tumble it should hold up well from wear and tear. Once Haize is attached to your handlebars of your bicycle setting the app on your phone is quick and simple, the phone goes back in your pocket and the guided navigation will now appear on your handlebars through an LED display. It will tell you where to go and how far away you are from your final destination by using two different types of navigation. The first is the compass mode; it will allow you to get to your destination and discover things along the way. The second is the navigation mode; this will guide you through a specific route mapping out every turn necessary. All you have to do is keep peddling and glance at your cyclist’s companion to keep on track it’s just that simple. To find out more about when Haize hits the market visit their site here.
