Burst Training Will Keep You Fit & Slim Throughout Holiday Season

Yep, it's started – This amazing Holiday, Fun season of Trick-or-Treating, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas and New Years!

And you should have fun in all the upcoming activities and celebrations with your friends, family and loved ones.

But hey, you are entitled to feel and look great. Be at your best every single day. What is the catch? No catch. Just a very tiny effort to an amazing Holiday Season Ever!

When I cannot get into the gym, I fill my workout time with a ten-minute intense workout at home. No weights or any special arrangements needed. Turn on my favorite music play lists on the iPhone – and I'm ready to go. Not to get bored, I am doing various things for my workouts like that.

Just recently, I've discovered Burst Workouts routines on YouTube. I researched many options of the burst workouts, and picked a few for my personal needs.

If you are curious and wish to keep in shape while having a blast during this year's Holiday Season, check a burst work out for yourself.

Here's the one I started with and then moved on to other things. Keep in mind, if you do something regularly, your body adjusts. So we need to challenge it for bigger and stronger things.

Amazon Rain Camu C Serum Giveaway ~ Rafflecopter, 1 Winner (11/05) – Closed, Winner #74 Debra G.

Amazon Rain 6-Product Organic Skin Care System
When it comes down to your skin, especially your facial skin, any person would desire something pleasant to smell, something that truly works. And what’s more important, we want to be assured that all ingredients in the product won’t cause any harm five, ten, twenty years after the initial use of it.

Being a person with a super sensitive skin, I have not used much of cosmetics and skin care products in my life. A few months ago, Amazon Rain skincare came into my life.

I really liked the ingredients in the product, and was willing to try it. All Amazon Rain products are entirely free of synthetic chemicals and artificial additives and made from 100% organic ingredients. What’s not to like?

Behind all these organically formulated Amazon Rain products stands the Amazon Herb Company. Since 1990, Amazon Herb has worked with local tribes in deep Amazonian Rainforest, supporting a sustainable future for the forest and its citizens. Another outstanding fact is that this company dedicated a percentage of all company profits toward scholarships, helping obtain land titles and deeds, and securing the future of the Amazon Rainforest.

Every single sale all year round in Amazon Herb supports two movements: ACEER – Nonprofit The Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Resources

AND

Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Center

What followed my test of the Amazon Rain products shadowed all my expectations or should I say my skepticism?

I bought all six products for my personal use and implemented a regular skin care routine like with any system: Cleanse > Exfoliate > Tone > Feed > Moisturize

Here’s my feedback on every Amazon Rain individual product

1. Amazon Rain Botanical Cleanser (100 ml)
Exceptionally nice smelling and gentle to use. What I liked in this cleanser is that my skin doesn’t feel parched after its use.

Amazon ingredient Iporuru camls my skin and act a topical analgesic. Jatoba is a natural purifying and soothing ingredient with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

2. Amazon Rain Crystal Exfoliator (60 ml)
This is my Steallar product. What’s interesting, I can use it twice a day, AM and PM, and my facial skin doesn’t feel abused by the ingredients in it. It is not a scrub of harsh elements. It is a heavenly rejuvenating solution to my skin. Anybody’s skin!

Pure marine algae energizes skin cells with an increased blood flow to my skin surface, helping to draw out impurities.

Silica micro-crystals clean and polish my skin, giving it a “custom” look!

Herbal mineral ash blend is rich in mineral composites from the Rainforest soil.

This is my aroma therapy at my finger tips! Smell is so desirable and addicting, I just open a bottle and inhale the aromas from the bottle. ;0)

My hubby loves this product so much, he started using it. Guess what, now people throw all kinds of compliments his way. Men need good skin care products like us, too!

3. Amazon Rain Refreshing Mist (50 ml)
This mist is an excellent toner and a quickly-pick-me-upper during the day and after my rigorous workout at the gym. I sprits it all over my face and neck any time I want to feel energized and refreshed. The actives in this toner, aka mist,  shield my skin from environmental stressors.

The ultimate effect I am looking forward to is a like-sponge absorbing effect by my skin. I literally feel my facial skin drinking the applied dews of this ultimate mist.

With super-duper ingredients from Amazon like Suma and Una de Gato, the mist provides soothing, refreshing and anti-inflammatory effect to the skin.

4. Amazon Rain Camu C Serum (30 ml)
This nutrient-dense serum is a high concentration of antioxidants and ingredients with anti-inflammatory action. Feels silky and lightweight. Camu C Serum absorbs very quickly. Within two weeks of my use of the whole system, I kissed goodbye to my fine lines around my eye area. That was something I did not expect or asked for. I applied this serum twice a day, AM and PM.

The Amazon Camu Camu fights fine lines and wrinkles, and nourishes our skin with the world’s hightest concentration of vitamin C.

And amazing Sangre de Drago (aka “dragon’s blood”) promotes anti-aging effects and is concidered to be at the top promotes natural anti-aging processes in the body with a 90% concentration of one of richest antioxidant compounds in the world; oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC's).

5. Amazon Rain Replenishing Moisturizer (50 ml)
Oh, this formula smell so good and feels light and silky. Just a little bit on my face and neck would go long ways! The ingredients in it reduce the aging effect of the sun and protect my skin from the UV rays. This is my daily shield for skin for sure.

The Samabaia ingredient in this moisturizer has been shown in clinical studies to protect skin from sun exposure and radiation. This powerful ingredient boasts of a colorful bouquet of phytonutrients that offer my skin such a powerful protection.

6. Amazon Rain Deep Nourishing Oil (15 ml)
This Amazon Rain product is nothing but a pure distillation of oils from Amazonia. The smell is something that took me some time to adjust to, as all those ingredients are not something I grew up with. ;0)  But the effect from the healing and nourishing power of this mixture is amazing.

I include this oil into my nightly routine about twice a week. In the morning, after I wake up, my skin feels alive, soft and resilient. This is something we need to experience in order to talk about.

My overall analysis of the Amazon Rain 6 Products – EXCELLENT and with A Quick Notice Line. Within two weeks, I saw the results on my skin:

• Dramatic diminishing of fine lines in my around-eye area
• Improved skin firmness
• Brightened skin tone
• Aroma therapy on-the-g0 (it especially applies to the Mist. I Mist myself any chance I get!)
• Assurance that I am using the products with the best quality ingredients that were tested and clinically researched by the 3-rd parties. Most ingredients in the Amazon Rain are from Amazon and possess anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

For being so patient, Amazon Herb company has offered one reader from my blog a free full-size Camu C Serum. To give your skin a more lifted look – use Camu C Serum AM and PM and experience results for yourself.
Amazon Rain Camu C Serum (30 ml)
And Rafflecopter will sure help you to get through the entries with a breeze (thank you Greg from Rafflecopter and his entire team!)

Skin care is a huge part of our overall health, and it does matter what we put on it, and how much toxicity the body and its organs accumulate during their lifetime. That is why the byline for all Amazon Rain skin care products is Deeper Than Beauty. Amazon Rain products feed the body, skin, internal systems to bring out the beauty from within.

Clean & Green Review & Giveaway by Amazon Herb ~ Rafflecopter, 15 Winners (11/16)

Amazon Clean & Green
These days, I clean my house and home predominantly with Clean and Green. My friend introduced me to this cleaning solution a few months ago, and never looked back.

One day, my 3-year-old decided to be a body painter. After a few quiet moments in his room, he came out only to unveil his masterpiece drawn all over his body. Oh my, was he proud of himself! I couldn’t do anything but laugh. Then we headed straight to the tub.
Permanent Markers All-Over. That's the Before Picture
FYI before I proceed. The tools he used for creating his bodily images were permanent markers (he sneaked out into mama’s office to get to them.)

In the tub, I tried soap, kid’s shampoo, body wash. Scrubbed with wash cloth. Used a warmer water. Nothing worked. Then my hubby suggested to use Clean and Green, may be it’d work.

After a few drops on a wash cloth and a couple of minutes in the tub, my toddler boy was free of permanent marker colorings!
This is the After picture. Clean & Green has Done its Job!
WOW! This stuff made me even a bigger lover of it!

Wait a minute. Nothing to worry about when it comes to its ingredients!
• 100% natural and chemical-free formula
•Non-toxic plant-based key ingredients
• Powerful cleaning action for even the toughest stains – I proved this statement through my personal experience!
• Gentle enough to be used on your skin – You bet!
• Safe for households with children and pets – True!

Here’s the Ingredients List for Clean and Green:
Purified water, Processed Extracts of Rainforest Cinnamon and Coconut, Tree Sap, Cactus, Corn, Grain, Grass, Potatoes, Soy, Plant-based Surfactant.

Check the multiple uses of Clean and Green:
• Windows, floors, toilets, kitchen counters – I do ALL of these in my own house with Clean and Green!
• Give your Pet a rub and clean it from dust and soily spots – I have cats and give them a a “bath” by rubbing Clean and Green solution all over their bodies. Non-toxic to swallow for both pets and kids, remember it!
• Stains on clothes – get them off quickly and efficiently with this natural magic!
• Fruit and Veggies – Spray them before you eat to get rid of waxes and pesticide film on them!
• Furniture, fabric and leather – I used it on both and works wonders, really!

In a word, every time I want to clean something new, I just spray a bit on the surface to see if there’s any adverse reaction. So far, there was none! I am loving Clean and Green for its eco nature and effectiveness!!! Natural stuff that works. And I keep my green spray bottle in the kitchen for all immediate spills and dirty concerns.

The company that stands behind this unique product is Amazon Herb Company with its over 20-year experience of working with the indigenous communities in the Amazon and bringing eco clean ingredients to the U.S. to make the products that feed the body and help it heal naturally.

Each year, a percentage of all company profits goes towards providing scholarships, obtaining land titles and deeds, and securing the future of the Peruvian Rainforest. Amazon Herb Company is called a “More Than Fair” Trade company, as it empowers and enriches the local villagers with the gifts they never had, like land titles, water filtration systems, boats, medical supplies, sponsoring Indigenous radio programming and much more.

Would you like to experience Clean and Green in your house where all natural and beautiful thrives? Win it right here on Celebrate Woman Today.

Amazon Herb Company who is a proponent of everything natural and effective, is offering Clean and Green concentrate and a dispensing Bottle to my 15 Readers randomly selected through this review and giveaway.

Yes, you heard it right – 15 Winners for this Rafflecopter-powered Giveaway!

All the best and there are 15 winning chances this time, not one or two.
