New Years Resolutions: Fitness

If you’re like me, my biggest New Years resolution this year is to shed a few pounds, tone up, and turn into a Victoria Secret model. Sounds easy, right? Starting a healthy life style takes more than good eating choices and working out. Here are a few products to get you on the right path to a better you!

unnamed  If you’re going out for a run, make sure you apply SPF too all exposed areas – yes, even in the winter! With Nios Shield, you can style your hair while added SPF 15 protects your scalp from harmful rays. Nios Shield Whipped Hair Gel is formulated with Moroccan argan oil, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B5 to ensure healthy hair with a medium-strong hold that’ll keep pesky flyaway hair in place. ($26;


unnamed-2     If you’re heading to the gym be sure to bring some Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths – your gym bag essential! These unique towelettes wipe away sweat, cool the body down, and leave a unique soft powder finish, so you’re left feeling completely refreshed, with no sticky residue. Unlike others, these cloths will leave skin feeling smooth and silky, instead of wet and sticky – perfect for when you’re on the go. ($3.29; Drugstores and Mass Retailers)

unnamed When you have time to spare, wash away sweat and oil build-up and pore-clogging impurities with Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. This bar soap features scrubbing jojoba beads that gently exfoliate skin, while natural charcoal powder helps draw out deep-down dirt and grime. Infused with refreshing peppermint oil, this unique formula works 2.5 times better than a basic cleanser to ensure a deep down clean that’ll leave your skin feeling tingly fresh. ($6.49; Drugstores and mass retailers)

Restorative Indian Bay and Clove Bud oils deeply warm and relax the body to relieve tired muscles, aches and pains. Lavender helps ease the mind, while Sweet Almond Oildeeply nourishes for softer, supple skin.




  unnamed-3  Along with working out, shed off holiday weight gain by cleansing your digestive track of wastes and toxins in a gentle, yet effective way with Kimberly Snyder’s Detoxy+.

BUTTERelixir was created by 3 yogis in NYC who have backgrounds in fashion and design.
They decided to marry all of the goodness from a natural holistic product and package it in a modern, clean yet classic bottle.
They wanted something purely moisturizing to put on after they practiced yoga and throughout the day to nourish their skin.
BUTTERelixir was born and quickly developed a cult following among yogis and people in the fashion industry.


BUTTERelixir 3oz + 8oz body + hair oil:

This namesake product BUTTERelixir consists of: Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, French Lavender and Chamomile.
It adds a luscious radiance to the skin and contains vital omega 3 fatty acids.
Together these aromatherapy champions moisturize, dispel bad moods and deliver you to a place of focus and serenity.


BUTTERelixir face oil:

Rose Hip Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Argan Oil and Rose Essential Oil.
The crown jewel of our collection is a gorgeous facial moisturizer.
It dives deep into the dermal layers of your skin and leaves you soft, glowing and moisurized.

A trifecta of skin soothers work in tandem to soften, and invigorate the skin and the senses.

This deluxe gift set includes all BUTTERelixir products and is packaged in a gorgeous, traditional, hand crafted bento box.
The Japanese word Shibusa was the inspiration for this gift set. Shibusa refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty.
