Why We Love It?

  • Goat whey has demonstrated positive anti-inflammatory effects in the digestive system. Cow whey has shown increased inflammatory effects.
  • Cow whey is considered allergenic whereas goat whey is considered hypoallergenic.
  • Whey protein is the “gold standard” for serious athletes. Goat whey is the “gold standard” of that “gold standard.”
  • Goat whey is amazing for our immune systems, supporting lean muscle growth and repair, as well as optimal body composition.
  • Goat whey has the full range of essential amino acids in ratios that best support the athlete in all of us
  • It is really light and doesn’t ever makes us feel bloated. That’s because there is nothing added to fill up space, just the purest goat whey and flavoring.
  • Activ Whey is a goat whey protein that comes from goats that are grassfed all the way through their lifecycle. There are zero antibiotics or hormones used on the goats or the vegetation they eat from.
  • I personally know the creator and can vouch for the legitimacy of the protein and where it is sourced from.

What I buy at Pharmaca: April Edition

What I buy at Pharmaca: April Edition

What I buy at Pharmaca: April edition is here!  If you haven’t figured out by now I’m a huge fan of Pharmaca.  They really carry it all when it comes to natural living.  I love one stop shops as a mom- even better when they’re online.

*This post does contain affiliate links.  If you do purchase something from one of them I will receive a small commission.  

Want to find out why I can’t get enough of this one stop natural shopping store?  Then keep reading!

1st- Pharmaca carries QUALITY products.

Yes, you read that right.  It’s not some retailer selling random things.  They carry all the big name green beauty brands, natural living brands and supplement brands.  Plus, their selection is amazing!

2nd- It’s all in ONE place.

No more going back and forth between five websites trying to get green beauty brands in one place and supplements in another.  Now, you can just do it all at once and save yourself some precious time.

3rd- Shopping at Pharmaca SAVES you money.

Yes, you heard me right!  They are always having a great sale or gift with purchase.  Plus, you get free shipping after $35- hello.  Most retailers are $50 and higher.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to their website to purchase something and was amazed to find they also carried another one of my products too.  Pharmaca has made my life more streamlined and easier as a mom and fellow natural living enthusiast.

Here are some products you can find at Pharmaca:

Some green beauty brands I love that they carry are:

Every month I’m working with Pharmaca to show you what you can get for $100(it’s pretty incredible).  Here is this month’s order:

*These products were sent to me by Pharmaca, however thoughts and opinions are my own.

Preserve Razor Triple Blade-

These razors are made from recycled materials, some of the recycled products are yogurt cups.  Pretty cool!  Also, the whole razor is recyclable itself. They give my skin a smooth feeling but I don’t feel like they’re so sharp that they are going to nick me easily.  I love that they’re easy to travel with too and budget friendly.  A great pick instead of getting a plastic one you can’t recycle.  Get your Preserve Razor here!

Evan Healy Blue Cactus Beauty Elixir-

Ok, I had heard really good things about this elixir and I was SO excited to finally get my hands on it.  Well, it did not disappoint!  If you’ve been following me long enough on my blog, you know I’m a huge fan of anything Blue Tansy or prickly pear seed oil, well this elixir has them both.  A match made in skincare heaven!  The prickly pear seed oil is perfect for dry or irritated skin, while the blue tansy helps to clam and minimize redness.  My skin literally drank it all up!  I can’t recommend it enough.  I would put it on after cleansing and toning my skin.  My skin felt so nourished and supple.  Plus, the blue tansy smell is intoxicating.  Such a great elixir!  Get it here!

Even Healy Sweet Blossom Hydrating Oil-

Another Evan Healy product but one I’m familiar with!  This body oil has been in my beauty arsenal for 5 years- it’s so good!  I love the smell.  It has notes of frankincense, neroli, and ylang ylang in it.  When you apply it to your skin it soaks right up.  But leaves behind a silly smooth feeling.  Made with a combination of jojoba, sunflower, sesame and apricot kernel oil.  It envelops your skin and leaves lasting moisture.  Get your Body oil here!

Acure Captivating Light Body Oil-

This body oil is great for travel!  I love having it on hand for trips.  It doesn’t come in glass like the Evan Healy one, which makes it perfect for a trip.  You can easily toss it in your bag and not worry about it breaking.  Plus, it smells so good and sprays too- pretty cool.  If coconut isn’t your fave, they also have other scents too.  Snag your body oil here!

U Konserve Mini Containers-

I’m obsessed with these little containers.  Perfect for traveling anywhere.  With kids you always have to have snacks on hand and these are the perfect container. They are stainless steel, which I love- no plastic.  The lids also stay on so easy, another huge win.  I find a lot of small bowls or containers often don’t have great lids.  I fill them with snacks for the kids too even if we’re just at home.  Traveling or not, these hit the mark!  Grab your containers here!

Melissa and Doug Travel Books-

Another reason I love Pharmaca so much- they even have kid’s activities and toys!  I love Melissa and Doug products.  These books are great for when traveling or in the car.  They’re easy to pull out and not make a mess with a ton of markers or crayons.  You just need some water to put in the pen and you’re good to go.  My girls love playing with these.  Get your Melissa and Doug products here!
