Beauty Review: Corioliss "The Wand" Ceramic Curling Iron from

Back in August, I got an email from Misikko asking if I would like to review one of their super high performance curling irons. Misikko is a "family run business" that sells pro-quality flat irons, hair dryers and other hair accessories. I took it as a sign because I've been dying to try a curling iron (haven't used one since I was a little girl), so I readily agreed and within 2 or 3 days, I received my complimentary Corioliss "The Wand" 18mm Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron ($99.99) in the mail. I wasn't feeling all that confident in my styling abilities but I gave it a try—and the results were shocking!

Beauty Review: JASON Citrus Satin Shower Body Wash

Recently I received a complimentary bottle of JASON Citrus Satin Shower Body Wash (approx. $13.79, 30 fl oz), which I have been using on and off for the past couple of weeks. While I had seen JASON brand products before at my local natural foods store, I was never particularly inspired to actually try it, perhaps because of the name (sounds silly and petty but "Jason" just doesn't pull me in) or because I had never heard anything about it from friends or fellow bloggers (a more likely explanation). Nonetheless, I was eager to give it a try because it's a made-in-the-USA, natural, organic option that's readily available and relatively affordable. If you've been curious about JASON products, keep reading to find out how their bodywash worked for me!
