A Fresh Looking For This Beautiful Spring in Nic + Zoe

Hi girls, Spring is officially here. Do you feel happy to see the temperature getting higher and higher everyday? Of course yes! One of my favorite things to celebrate the beginning of the Spring is to rearrange my closet. How excited it is – packing all  the thick heavy jacket away and take out all the light dresses.

A clinically proven and dermatologist-recommended dietary supplement

Free radicals are everywhere. We are exposed to free radicals every day. Alcohol, tobacco, chemicals, and sun radiation are all common ways we are exposed. Antioxidants can help. Providing free radicals with antioxidants to replace their missing electrons helps stop the damaging oxidation chain reaction. Foods high in antioxidants and dietary supplements like Heliocare, feature powerful antioxidant properties that help maintain the skin’s ability to protect itself from the harmful effects of free radicals.

Heliocare Daily Antioxidant Formula contains an antioxidant called Polypodium leucotomos (PLE), which aids in eliminating free radicals and their harsh effects on your body.* Reducing free radicals can help with “beauty fatigue” as well, as it helps to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin.* Only the PLE extract in Heliocare, which has been studied for over 25 years, has been extensively tested by leading American and international dermatologists.

Heliocare is a simple, one-a-day dietary supplement made with Fernblock® Polypodium leucotomos extract (PLE). This natural extract is packed with antioxidant properties that help maintain your skin’s ability to protect itself against the aging effects of free radicals.*

Heliocare’s improved capsules are now:
•  Vegan  •  Gluten-Free  •  Free of Artificial Dyes

But how does a capsule help your skin protect itself? The unique Polypodium leucotomos fern (native to Central and South America) has developed its own protections against harmful free radicals in the environment. For centuries, the unique traits of this natural fern have been used to treat many skin-related conditions and promote skin resilience and youthful appearance. Now it’s your turn.

Help your skin protect itself from the aging effects of free radicals.*

  • Take daily to promote younger-looking, more resilient skin*
  • Antioxidant-rich formulation
  • Clinically proven, proprietary extract (Fernblock®)
  • Gluten-Free & Vegan
  • No Artificial Dyes
  • Dermatologist Recommended

Usage: Take 1 capsule daily in the morning. An additional 1-2 capsules can be taken at equal intervals throughout the day.

Where to get it: Walgreens nationwide at a retail price of $29.99 (60 capsules)

For more information, please visit Heliocare.com or Ferndalehealthcare.com.

As seen on Shark Tank, its patent pending Dissolvable Protein Scoops will have you ditching big containers and messy powders forever.

About VADE Nutrition:

VADE, meaning “to go” in Latin, was founded by power couple Joe and Megan Johnson. The former Michigan State University athlete and former University of Arizona cheerleader originally thought of these “pods” when they began to realize that scooping protein powder in the car after a workout made quite a mess. So they prepped ahead of time by pre-measuring the protein powder and put them in baggies. In the summer of 2016 VADE Nutrition was born. The Johnson’s goal is to make lives easier with their patent pending Dissolvable Protein Scoops and give back to the community through creating jobs and donating VADE’s products to feed the hungry.

Father’s Day Gifts for All of The DILFs Out There!

It is always a good idea to prepare the gifts earlier than last minute, especially for Father’s Day. You know what I mean – it is so difficult to hunt nice gifts for guys, no matter for boyfriend, husband or dad. Father’s Day is coming, not very soon, but trust me, now is the perfect timing to prepare the gift in advance. I’m looking to spice things up for the men this year and introduce you to sassy gift ideas for the Zaddy (and I do mean Zaddy) in their lives.

Tame the Beast is a revolutionary, arousing line of head to toe grooming products. With a focus on raw, energizing properties and all natural botanicals, Tame the Beast covers all the basics of manscaping. Shower, shave, style, beard, skin…they got it covered.

NEW Beast Blue Bar Soap ($15.00):

The bar is BACK! 100% natural bar soap with heightened levels of organic essential oils and crisp Beast Blue™ scent. Extra moisturizing for beasts of all kinds, including tender beasts with sensitive skin.

Invigorating at first sniff and smooth to the touch, this gentle hydrating soap features only plant-based ingredients like Organic Palm Oil (Rainforest Alliance Certified™), Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Almond Oil. Beast Blue™ brings notes of Juniper, Citrus, Eucalyptus and a hint of Musk of the Beast. Perfectly complements Tame the Beast® Sandpaper Scrub Bar Soap, which adds a heightened level of exfoliation from lava rock.

100% vegan, cruelty free and produced in the U.S.A.

DIRECTIONS: When not using, keep soap as dry as possible. Pro tip: cut your natural soap bar (especially the brick) in half and alternate use of each half (this gives your soap more time to dry).

Nutt Butter ($19.00)The first ever multipurpose lotion for the boys – with an exhilarating eucalyptus tingle! It’s a blend that checks all the boxes: Anti-Aging, Anti-Shriveling, Anti-Chafing, Anti-Dryness, Anti-Sagging, yet botanically bountiful. Don’t be shy, check out Nutt Butter Edibles.

The ‘other’ down-there products (powders, creams, wipes) for men are all about anti-wetness and anti-odor, leaving a strong, distinctive scent of artificial chemicals. TAME the BEAST® Multipurpose Nutt Butter is a creamy anti-chafe skin and body experience derived from ingredients such as Jojoba, Aloe, Comfrey Root, Calendula, Chamomile, Shea, Cocoa, Mango, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Vitamin E, giving your skin and body a more natural and welcoming scent.
