As many of you know, I have been working to eliminate chemicals from my home, food, and personal care products for several years now. I even started a Facebook group earlier this year called Chemical Free 2017 to connect others who are on the same mission, and to share ideas, recipes, and support.
Because of this, I was recently given the opportunity to try a new line of skincare products called Fountain of Youth Skincare. Fountain of Youth is based here in Portland which I love. All of their products are organic, cruelty-free, and farm grown – another big plus!
The first product I tried was the Blueberry Acai Mask. According to the information card that comes with the product:
This amazing anti-aging secret is sure to make you look your best. A creamy concoction of rare earth ingredients and fruits will have your skin feeling young and looking fresh. Glycol acid & Lactic Acid exfoliates the skin from the inside out. Your skin will feel and look refreshed and rejuvenated after each use.”
The product itself smells good enough to eat, and has a very rich and lush texture.
When I first put the masque on my skin, I could feel it working immediately. I put it on right before I got into a nice warm bath and left it on for 25 minutes.
After my bath, I rinsed off the masque and was very pleased with the results. My skin looked noticeably cleaner and shinier and definitely felt smooth and soft. I will definitely plan to use this masque as part of my regular skincare routine.
I also tried the Dream Skin Serum and have been using it twice a day after cleaning my face. The product feels great on my skin and absorbs quickly. I was especially excited to try the Serum because I have sensitive skin and a little rosacea. It feels great, and I am already seeing an improvement.
According to the product card:
Formulated for all skin types, this magical syrup reduces fine lines, calms redness and irritation, reduces pore size and texture problems, and can even reduce inflammatory skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis. Safe for Dermatitis and Rosacea. Geranium is a natural anti-bacterial and can help curb breakouts. Results can typically be seen within 7-14 days of regular use.”
Fountain of Youth Skincare has a broad range of cleansers, toners, moisturizers, serums, exfoliants, and body care products to choose from. They provide healthier alternatives to department store brands and are small business supporters.

Ok, I never thought I would be SO EXCITED about a bleach alternative before but I am about this one!! It totally works. I was up early testing it and am sharing my results with you.
You ONLY NEED 3 Ingredients!
And BOOM – you’ll be bleaching your way to clean!
I recommend spraying the product on and letting it set for 15 minutes so it can work its magic. I also used an old toothbrush to lightly scour the caulk around my sink with the bleach alternative but I’m so pleased with the results.
So you might be saying (like Dave did this morning) – but isn’t Peroxide a chemical too? Good Point!
So I did a little research on the EWG website. The ingredients in bleach received an “F” rating as there are concerns with this product for asthma, but also lower levels of concern for cancer. Peroxide on the other hand, received a “B” rating with no concerns. That’s a win in my book, and it works!!
Let me know if you give this a try and how it works for you.
If you’re looking for a nice glass spray bottle, this is the one I use. I recommend using glass when you’re using essential oil. And for essential oils, I recommend using Young Living. Young Living has the best oils in the world and is the only company that provides the Seed to Seed Guaranty so you know the oil is the highest quality, Grade A Therapeutic. No yucky fillers that are common in other oils.
Did you know the average woman uses 300 chemicals per day? YIKES. That may sound like a lot but when you read the label on a single product, the list of chemicals is often lengthy.
These chemicals are in our beauty products, soaps, shampoos, and more. Not to mention the chemicals we encounter in cleaning products, food, and in the air. It’s no wonder many of us feel taxed and depleted, we’re experiencing chemical overload. What chemicals are in your products? Check out this handy list.
Moving from our known beauty routines to a more natural lifestyle can sometimes feel overwhelming. We’ve used some of these products for many, many years. But you’re not alone in this process. Join me and many others on this journey in my Facebook Group: Chemical Free 2017. You can also sign up for my free e-mail course. We’ll be taking it step-by-step and tackling fun new challenges each month, learning more about chemicals and healthier alternatives, and providing encouragement and support.
In this group, we’ll share how to create your own DIY products using inexpensive ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, coconut oil, olive oil, essential oils, and more to make our own low-cost, healthier products. We’ll also share pre-made non-toxic products in case you’d prefer convenience. We’ll share experiences, best practices, and recommendations.
Here’s a list of areas we’ll be tackling by month:
Change happens one step at a time and you don’t have to do it all at once! We’ll take this journey together finding fun and healthy alternatives to chemical-filled yuck!
