With the introduction of their 3X Bluicer Pro, Breville coined the term “bluicing,” a portmanteau of blending and juicing. That’s exactly what this countertop appliance does—preparing everything from green juices to smoothies and frozen cocktails in its 50oz. jug (and 101-oz. pulp bin). Its interchangeable design and pre-set programs allow for ease of use and precise results. And all parts—except the motor base and food pusher—are dishwasher safe.

Creosote heals sunspots, soothes sunburns, repels mosquitoes and other bugs, and aids in the prevention of infection, as the plant boasts antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Plus, this cream helps to heal tattoos and supports skin after other moments that leave it particularly vulnerable. Available in two or four fluid ounce packages, each cream is made to order.
Employing a plant-based alternative to Retinol called Bakuchiol, Blüh Alchemy botanic concentrate increases the body’s collagen production, making the skin tighter, firmer and smoother—without the side effects from the traditional chemical concentrate.

The light serum boasts a subtle but pleasant herbaceous scent due to its organic nature. Just one pump applied to a clean face absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. And after just a week of testing we’re already seeing positive effects!
Based on the Chinese Medicine technique, facial Gua Sha tools are meant to be used in a gentler manner.

The outcome should not only reduce puffiness and wrinkles, but also accentuate the angles of your cheekbones and jawline. It can also be useful in relieving aches and tension caused by TMJ. Black obsidian itself is believed to help release negativity and offer protection.
Each of Colorado-based Mandara’s Dream CBD gummies boasts 30mg of oil extracted from refined, THC-free hemp plants.

Each container comes with 30 gummies.
The latest iteration of Muse’s meditation-assisting technology, the Muse S multi-sensor headband offers real-time feedback on brain activity, body movement, heart rate and breathing as one meditates. Gone are the rubbery cushions of previous versions, replaced by comfortable plush fabric.
