During my second pregnancy I had a lot of back and leg pains. While browsing at a store I found a similar pillow and decided to try it out. It was very comfy and helped lessen my pain. I used it throughout my pregnancy. After I delivered my baby, my hips and leg were hurting so bad that I couldn’t really sleep. This pillow helped relieved my hip and leg pain whenever I used it at night. It’s very comfortable to sleep with it between my legs when I lay on my sides. I don’t have pain anymore, but I still use it instead of a regular pillow.

Earthen InstantPeel Review

I have received this box of Earthen InstantPeel for free as an exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Earthen InstantPeel

What is InstantPeel?

“InstantPeel is naturally formulated to peel away dead skin cells, debris and impurities, revealing your skin’s natural glow, youth and vibrancy. Your skin texture is dramatically improved and becomes more radiant with each use of InstantPeel.

InstantPeel stops working once all the debris and dead skin has peeled away, revealing your natural, healthy, glowing skin. InstantPeel is safe for all skin types and will work on most of the body.” (Info on the back of the box)

It will only peel away dead skin cells and does not recognize living skin cells.

3. Move to next area and repeat.
4. Rinse thoroughly. If there’s any remaining, remove with soap and water. Discard packet.

Caution: This is not a mask and should be used only on steamed moist skin. Do not let InstantPeel dry on skin.

Honest Opinion

I love what this peel does. I’ve been looking for a peel similar to this. Luckily I was given an opportunity to review this product. The peel is in a thin liquid form. It looks almost like milk. It doesn’t smell bad or good, just neutral.

I have some dry patches on my face and this peel helps me get rid of them. After using this peel, my skin feels smooth and soft. No more dry patches left on my skin. I only use this peel whenever I get dry patches on my face. I like to apply moisturizer after using this. Since this product says “For use on the Face and Body” I tried it on my hands as well. It works well and made my hands soft.

The only thing that I don’t like about this peel is that it comes in packets. Most of the time I don’t even use the entire product and have to discard it after use. That’s a waste of product.

Overall this is a good product to remove any dead skin and impurities. A box comes with 6 packets for about $50. It is a bit pricey. I would give it a 4/5.

Again, all opinions are my own. Hope you find this helpful.

Below is a video I made showing how it works.

One of my favorite dessert is Ambrosia salad. Ambrosia is a variation of fruit salad. It includes mandarin oranges, pineapples, strawberries, bananas, cherries, grapes, and miniature marshmallow. Some recipes include other fruits too. It is super good and easy to make.

A few years ago, a friend of ours told us that ambrosia is food of the Greek Gods. In the ancient Greek myths, ambrosia means immortality. It is often depicted as the “conferring longevity or immortality upon whoever consumed it.” Cool huh?

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb Strawberries, cut into fourths
  • 4 Bananas, sliced
  • 2 cup Grapes, cut in half
  • 2 can 11 oz Mandarin Oranges
  • 2 cup Miniature Marshmallow
  • 1 cup Strawberry Yogurt
  • 16 oz Cool Whipped
Directions:

Cut the strawberries into fourths. If some pieces are big, cut them smaller. Slice the grapes in halves. Sliced the bananas. Drain the mandarin oranges. Put all the fruits in a big bowl.
