I am a huge fan of Mineral Fusion and use quite a bit of their products so when the chance came to write about them as a Whole Foods Ambassador, I decided to share with you my favorite Mineral Fusion products.

#1 Hydrating Primer. My dry skin loves this primer. It smoothes and evens my skin tone and allows my foundation to glide on smoothly for a flawless look.

#2. Lash Curling Mascara. The curved brush on this lash lengthening mascara separates and defines lashes and is made with a hypo allergenic formula.

The Trilogy line now crafts over 40 incredibly effective natural alternatives to use in place of all the synthetic skincare, body care and hair care products that are out on the market. These natural and effective alternatives are sold in over 20 countries around the world.

I’ve been using these products for about a week and I am loving the way my skin feels and looks.

The samples included a holiday limited edition Bare-Faced Beauty Kit, Ultra Hydrating Face Cream and Vital Moisturizing Cream.

The Bare-Faced Beauty Kit included a mini bottle of the rosehip oil antioxidant plus. Hydrating beauty mist and make up be gone cleansing balm.

My skin is on the drier end of the spectrum and I found it soaked up the rosehip oil without leaving a greasy film. I have been applying it to my face after I shower to help lock in some moisture then again at night before the ultra hydrating face cream and my dry skin is loving it!

I carry the hydrating beauty mist with me in my purse. The scent is intoxicatingly floral and when I just need a little refreshing pick me up during this day this mist does the trick.

The make-up be gone cleansing balm gently removes make up and I really like using it under my eyes to get that last bit if eyeliner off that my face soap just can’t seem to get.

trilogy make up gone

I have been using the Trilogy ultra hydrating face cream at night after I wash all of my make up off. The ultra hydrating is no joke. This face cream is thick and rich but glides on smoothly and is easily absorbed and no greasy film.

The vital moisturizing cream is lighter than the hydrating cream and absorbs well. I have been using it the mornings as a moisturizer for under my make up.

My niece is an esthetician at a dermatology clinic and is always giving me samples of other high end and high priced skincare products so I have tried quite a few and I have to say, so far the Trilogy line seems just as good and it is half the price!

I encourage you to pick up a variety of Trilogy products at Whole Foods Market to try for yourself. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Word Addiction Game App

Word Addiction Game App

I will admit I am a Words with Friends junkie, so when I got contacted to try the new Word Addiction game app, I was very intrigued to see how it worked. After downloading the app and playing a few games,  I decided to do a little research about the game. It turns out the game was recently developed by a lady in Washington, Missouri, a suburb just outside of the St. Louis metro.

This is a girl after my own heart as she is a WWF addict as well as avid scrabble player. Word addiction is an elevated rendition of the other popular word games but takes the challenge a step further by offering a variety of boards to choose from, the ability to start a word wherever you choose and bridges and blocks to detour opponents from scoring more points.

Games can be played with a friend, a random opponent or solitaire.

I currently have all three types of matches going on at the moment. My phone is quite full of game apps as I like to play to pass the time when we travel. I really like the solitaire option of this game as it can be played while the phone is in airplane mode or when I’m looking for something to pass the time while waiting on an opponent to take their turn.

If you like scrabble or other word games similar to that, i would suggest you give word addiction a try. Download the app and then come find me under sharminmeadows.

I look forward to playing you soon!
