As much as I love the fall, this fall has hit me kind of hard. As of tomorrow, I will have had a virus-turned-to-lingering cough for 3 weeks. That’s 3 weeks of interrupted sleep. At least I’m not feeling sick and achy any more….but this cough continues to cramp my style!
I was excited to receive the latest BabbleBoxx (did you see my first BabbleBoxx? It was incredible!) – this time with a women’s wellness theme (I know…kind of ironic, after the month that I’ve had, wouldn’t you say?). I’d say that these health-related products were exactly what I needed this month, and I’m so excited to share them with you!
23andMe Saliva Collection Kit
The first item in the #BabbleBoxxHealth delivery was something that I’ve been dying to do for quite a while. In fact, my mom was trying to convince me to get a kit a few months ago, after she and my (adopted) dad got their DNA test results back. I am eager to compare my DNA results with my mom’s to see how my dad’s side of the family will come to play. I’m especially excited about the 23AndMe test because it tells you so much more about who (and how) you are than just a simple window into your ancestry (although I do find that fascinating in and of itself).
I’ll be sharing more about 23AndMe once I get my test results back, so be sure to check back.
How it works: Provide your saliva sample from home. Mail it back to the 23AndMe lab in the same kit it came in; the postage is prepaid.
Receive 65+ personalized genetic reports in four key areas:
1. Ancestry reports: Your DNA can tell you about your family history. 3 Reports: Ancestry Composition, Maternal & Paternal Lineage, Neanderthal.
2. Wellness reports. Your genetics can help you make more informed choices about your diet and exercise. 5+ Reports: Caffeine Consumption, Lactose Intolerance, Muscle Composition, Alcohol Flush Reaction, Deep Sleep and Sleep Movement.
3. Traits Reports. Explore what makes you unique, from food preferences to physical features. 19+ Reports. Example reports: Hair Loss, Sweet vs. Salty Preference, Unibrow.
4. Carrier Status: If you are planning to start a family, find out if you are a carrier for an inherited condition. 35+ Reports. See 23andme.com/beforeyou-buy important information about these reports.

Simply Sensitive Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths
Women will understand me on this one…Sometimes you just don’t feel fresh, whether it’s that time of the month, after working out, or simply during the course of a day. It’s not always possible to take a shower everytime you feel less-than-fresh, so Summer’s Eve®, has developed Cleansing Cloths, which provide an easy and discreet way to feel fresh. The individually-packaged cloths are lightly fragranced (including scents like Island Splash®, Sheer Floral®, Aloe Love, or Simple Sensitive, with no fragrance) and quickly and discreetly wipe away odor-causing bacteria. I tried Simply Sensitive and loved the fresh feeling!
Here’s what makes them so perfect to have on hand:
• Gentle formulas won’t irritate sensitive skin
• pH-balanced and dermatoligust & gynecologist tested
• Hypoallergenic and alcohol-free
• Perfect to toss in your purse, gym bag or pocket – whenever you’re on the go
To use, just open up a foil packet, unfold a cleansing cloth, and gently wipe from front to back. Use and then throw away; do not flush.

Lancer’s Intensive Night Treatment
I celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago (luckily, the birthday was BEFORE I got sick!) and let’s just say…I’m not getting any younger! The fact that I’ve now got a married daughter and another one applying to college makes me feel so old some times. I’m determined, though, to not LOOK old, and Lancer’s Intensive Night Treatment helps me do just that.
I love the way that Lander’s Intensive Night Treatment makes my skin feel – it really does feel like luxury skin care! All you have to do to experience celebrity skin care is apply a small amount of cream to face and neck, including the eye area, in the evening, after cleansing the skin.

I don’t know about you, but I have become increasingly aware of the harmful ingredients in so many of the personal care products that I’ve used for years and years. I love finding products that work well and DON’T contain harful ingredients, just like illumai Biome Care System for Hair.

I’ve been wanting to do the 23&me test for about a year, luckily they lowered the price back down for the raw data, so will be doing it soon. You can download the data and then use other sites to interpret such as LiveWello.
Janet W. says
