Summer Beauty Must-Have: The Flex Brush #WelcomeSummer

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to The Flex Brush for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


Guys, we just found one of the best summer beauty tools!  Check out The Flex Brush:


A has super thick hair that tangles easily and our ridiculous south Texas coastal humidity just makes things worse.  This means we are allows on the lookout for products to help combat the crazy tangles and "rat's nests" as my mom always called them.  Between hair products and brushes, we've tried tons of different things to help make hair brushing tearless over the years.  Oh, how I wish we would have found The Flex Brush sooner!


The Flex Brush is The Ultimate Detangling Brush.  It bends to perfectly meet the contours of your head, massaging your scalp and stimulating the production of natural oils; hence promoting hair growth, reducing static and preventing breakage.


A fan of blow drying?  With vents allowing heat to pass through, blow drying won’t damage your brush.  The Flex Brush is made from natural rubber; with a soft touch finish on the handle...very comfortable and easy to grip.


We tried the XL Mixed Bristle for A's hair and the Petite Mixed Bristle for my hair which is a 
tad less unruly than A's.  Soft bristles made from boar bristle and flexible nylon is perfect for sensitive scalps, so this worked really well for us.  Don't worry, the bristles are harvested humanly and sheared the same way wool is sheared meaning no harm is done to the animal.


The Flex Brush works wonders on both wet and dry hair, detangling without too much pressure.  It flexes to release knots, meaning no tears, just soft, smooth hair!



With all the time we spend in the pool, at the beach and just outside in general this summer, The Flex Brush is proving to be a summer beauty must-have!

#FathersDayGiftGuide: Give Dad the Gift of Comfort with Marc Skid Undies!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Marc Skid for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


Nothing beats a comfy pair of undies, except maybe a comfy pair of undies that give back! Marc Skid undies do just that and would make an awesome give for dad this Father's Day!


Skid Marc undies are uber comfortable since they are made from Organic Pima Cotton (which is sustainable and non-GMO, btw!)  One recycled plastic water bottle is used in the making of every waistband, meaning one less bottle in a landfill per pair!  But wait, there's more and it gets even better!

Philip Boxer Brief

$4 per purchase goes to Save, Feed and Cure the World.  What does this mean?   Based on the color of undies you buy, you get to have a hand in either Saving (Blue) Feeding (Green) or Curing (Red) the world by choosing one of three charities for each cause to donate $4 of your purchase to.  Marc Skid chooses awesome 4 star charitable partners that have proven to do good with the donations they receive, so you can feel confident your donation is really helping out just where it's needed.


Here's how it works: 
When I placed my order for 2 pair of Marc Skid undies, I got to choose a charity for each pair.  When you put in your size info, you'll also find a drop down menu that allows you to choose from three awesome charities for your cause.  Our cause was Saving the World and we chose for our donations to go to Water.org
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

How cool is that!?  

Joan Bikini

Marc Skid undies offer unparalleled comfort thanks to the Pima cotton.  I mean, they are ridiculously comfortable and the cuts are very flattering making them look great on!  


It really doesn't get much better than a high quality product made by a company that cares so much for the world.  My hat is off to the folks at Marc Skid for their amazing vision and follow-through on this wonderful endeavor.

Give Dad the gift of comfort this Father's Day with a pair of Marc Skid undies and help some of the best causes in the world!
