Oil of Olay Makeup

olay makeup 2The history of Olay is pretty interesting. It is not by chance that they are one of the leaders of the beauty and cosmetics industry. The Olay Logo, which appeared in the Maple Holistics review in 2016, is a well-known one, and with good cause.

People devote a lot of time to their personal development, and rightly so. But physical personal development is also important. A sound mind in a sound body, right? Olay have had some major research and development breakthroughs as a company, and it is part of what sets them apart from so many others who simply go along with the herd.

Originally they were known as “Oil of Olay”, and many still call them that. Sometimes a name just sticks with you, you know? For better or worse.

The 1950’s saw a lot of things happen. After the end of WWII, people wanted to evolve. People wanted to be younger, I suppose in part because war is hell. It really is. And it makes you grow older, whether you want it or not. And in the 50’s, Olay was a budding promising company.

Now, in 2017 (going on 18!), this is a company which is truted by millions and millions of people, all around the globe. There isn’t a way to take a genuine headcount, but I am sure that those numbers are growing. Many people, once they find a product and company they like, will remain pretty loyal. A company would have to screw up in a bad way in order to force others to leave.

Olay has makeup of all kinds, and the products keep on getting better. There is a fair amount of rejuvination and progress going on there. Makeup is something which a woman needs to grow into. I know plenty of women who didn’t start taking it seriously until their early 30’s, preferring the natural look before that.

There is a lot to be said for the natural look, to be sure. I have nothing against it, but once you unlock the secrets of the kind of makeup that looks good on you – AND once you learn how to apply it properly -, I mean there is nothing you cannot do, using polay makeup 1roducts like the ones Olay distributes. High quality stuff which can transform you in the best way, according to what looks good on you.

The name of the game is skin care, people. Obviously, we get older. And more obvious should be the tendency to grow old with grace. But, that does NOT mean not investing time and energy into looking younger when possible. I don’t mean to say that you should get all kinds of surgery. Nope. I am talk primarily about skin. It is amazing, really, how much you can tell about a person – seemingly – just by the look and feel of their skin. And come on, we’ve been there. When your skin is smooth and looking clean and shiny? It is the best!

Legal To Carry

a7b39d9242df0b2b985b5fd278557aca

I got my first gun as soon as I was legally allowed to carry. I had my eye on the Glock 19 for some time, having shot one in the past. Some people said I shouldn’t go for the obvious choices, like a Glock or a Ruger. But you know what? Guns like Glock and Ruger  – there is a reason why they are so popular, and why they would indeed be an obvious choice.

These guns are ones which don’t cost too much, and which are accurate and reliable. What more could you possibly want in an everyday carry (EDC) or home defense kind of firearm?

You want it to do what it is meant to do when the time comes. The gun comes out of the factory in tip top shape, and now it is up to you to break it in, work it, carry it, customize or otherwise personalize it (as a way to make it your very own), and – most importantly – train with it. Get out to the range, spend some money, and get to know your weapon. Do this so when the time comes when you may need it, you will have a history with it. You will know what to do, and will not choke under pressure.Check out amazing Gun Articles at Gunivore.com.deadpool-guns

As for range days – you will probably do it more at first, and then lessen your training as time goes on. I am being very presumptuous, I know, but it is only based on what I know. Some people start training with a gun, get bitten by the bug, and develop a healthy obsession for shooting. Some don’t. Either way, what is important is that you get to know your weapon of choice. It can help save your life, or the lives of those around you.

Whether you choose to open carry, conceal carry, or just keep a gun in your night table or dresser for emergencies – you must be aware of safety regulations and act with caution. Too many innocent people get hurt, most often by the ones they love, due to improper gun care and sometimes due to outright negligence. What can I say? There are people who are not cut out to be gun owners. It’s true. Wave the second amendment all you want, it just isn’t happening. We are not all going to pick up a gun and join the armed population.

I, however, am not one of those people. I made some mistakes early on, but thankfully it was early enough so I learned quickly. The classic rules – such as always treating a gun as if it is loaded, or keeping the muzzle away from anything you do not wish to see destroyed – are the best ones to follow. They will usually give you all the discipline you need.

For me, the choice between arming myself and not arming myself was no choice at all. I had known my desired path long before I could legally carry. So, I ended up going with a Glock 19, and I am very happy with it. What I would really like, though, is to go back in time and by a genuine .38 Detective Special.

Argan Jargin

 

argan-oil-1

When people tell me that they do not do anything special on their hair, and that person is not a man with a buzz cut, I get a little skeptical. I mean, this is only in the case where their hair actually looks nice, if their hair looks like a mess, I just feel pity upon hearing of their lack of hair care. It is just ridiculous to hear that people do not care about how they look. These people could be putting in just a tiny bit of extra work, and they would look much better, but they do not for some undiscernible reason.

I mean, they might say that it is just because they are lazy, but that is among the worst excuses I have ever heard. It is essentially a person saying that they do not feel like improving themselves just because it is too much work. And then you can see these same people doing something that betrays their so called laziness. Just like when my friend with long hair spent 40 minutes doing her hair up in braids, despite never conditioning and having the least healthy hair I’ve ever seen. It is silly, she will put effort into the braids, but not into getting a second bottle of things to put in her hair. And you know what, it is not just women, men also should take care of themselves. Just because their hair is not as long as women (for the most part at least), does not mean that they do not need to take care of it.


Even if they do not end up using conditioner, there is another thing that they can do. And that thing is using a betterbenefits-of-argan-oil-shampoo shampoo. You see, if you have a really good shampoo you do not really need conditioner, although conditioner definitely can only help. Basically, if you get a good enough shampoo, you won’t need much of anything else. This is why I have to suggest that you get argan oil shampoo. You see, argan oil shampoo which is reviewed by Maple Holistics is pretty much the greatest shampoo I have ever encountered. Argan oil shampoo really does change up the shower game. I mean, argan oil shampoo does the job of both the shampoo and the conditioner, rejuvenating your hair with the moisturizing properties of argan oil. In fact, argan oil shampoo can even be used as a body wash, although you might not want to do that as it is wasteful. I mean, technically all shampoos can be used as a body wash, but the operative word there is can. That in no way means that you should use argan oil shampoo as a body wash. Do not worry though, as there is almost definitely argan oil body was in order to get all the moisturizing goodness of argan oil on your body during shower times. There is definitely argan oil moisturizing cream though, to go with your argan oil shampoo. So you can actually get a full suite of argan oil products to make your bath time experience complete.

Whole Lot of Good With Jojoba

To continue from my last post, let’s talk Jojoba oil. Our body has a natural oil, called the sebum. It is produced by the sebaceous glands, which then bring the oil to the surface, and help protect the skin against unwanted elements, and provide the body with a natural smoothness and shine.

There are many hydrating products, meant primarily for the skin, which attempt to emulate the sebum’s pH balance and consistency. A substance which is very similar to the body’s sebum is the oil of the jojoba plant.

The jojoba’s oil contains vitamin E, B complex vitamins, silicon, and several minerals. It is very high in iodine, which is partly what gives jojoba oil its power to heal. It also contains fatty acids, which turns it into a moisturizing wonder. Ironic, considering its natural habitat.

desertJojoba is native to dry, hot regions, such as the deserts of California and Mexico. Its seeds hold an impressive amount of oil within them, all things considered, and they are perfect for use in restoring the body’s natural sebum-production.

If you are experiencing dry skin, dry hair, dry scalp, flaking, or irritation – it could all very well be the result of a pH unbalance. By using a product like jojoba’s essential oil, you are able to give the body and skin some of its shine and vitality back. Being overexposed to damaging elements, such as the chemicals and artificial perfumes found in many cosmetics and hygiene products, can be detrimental for your skin, and especially your face, since it is out in the open air most of the time, unlike other body parts which are usually covered.

Looking for a lotion with strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties? Go for something with jojoba in it as a main ingredient. Maple Holistics makes some effective Jojoba oil based lotions and soaps.  It is one of the body’s most beneficial oils, especially when used more frequently.

NOTE: follow instructions, and use any essential oils in moderation. The jojoba can do a lot of good things, but like all good things in needs to be taken in measure.applying

Jojoba’s oil has many uses: it can be used as a makeup remover, a lube, a skin softener, a shampoo, a hair conditioner, a scalp massager, and an all-around moisturizer. There are also those who use it while shaving, and they report that the plant can help prevent burns and keep the skin smooth.

As for its more ‘medical’ kinds of benefits, jojoba can help with chapped lips; cracked feet; dryness of hands, fingers, and toe cuticles; eczema; psoriasis; acne; and other skin conditions. More studies are needed in order to clinically validate these claims, but the jojoba has had enough research done on it to make it a staple in many American households.

Jojoba wasn’t always America’s first choice. For many years and decades, the use of whale oil was very common. Following a ban on whale oil importing, people sought a new hope, and that was given to them in the shape of the jojoba plant. Jojoba is now used as the basis for many different kinds of products, and it is growing ever more popular.

When Life Gives You Oranges…Oil

When life gives you lemons, don’t you dare make lemonade! What are you doing making lemonade, when you are sitting on such a gold mine! Peel one of those ‘life oranges’, and squeeze the skin between your fingers. You smell that, my friend? That is essence of orange, right there. Yes, indeed. The essential oil which the orange yields is very concentrated, and very beneficial. I should rename my blog “topical” topics after this post:)

Uses of Orange Oilorange oil

The uses of orange essential oil are many, and among them are:

Medically – this essential oil is used for treating the common cold, a slow digestive system, gas, the flu, and even stress. Some use it in their mouthwash, since it has the ability to fight sores and other oral unpleasantness.

Cosmetically – it is used as a skin revitalizer and healer. Oranges famously contain vitamin C, and this is also true to the fruit’s essential oil. Rich with vitamin C, it is able to act as an anti-ager, and fight wrinkles, sunburns, spots, and other skin-related issues.

Other ways of using the orange’s essential oil include:

Mood-heightener / relaxer / chill out session starter – put a few drops in an aromatherapy diffuser, and let it burn slowly. The oil’s fumes have a very calming effect when inhaled, and they can really help unwind after a long day. Works very well in the bath or shower.

All-around kitchen cleaner – take a squirt bottle, and add orange essential oil to water. Perhaps consider adding another essential oil, such as a kind of mint, to the mix. Your call. You now have a great cleaner. Depending on the concentration, it can get rid of many different kinds of stains, grease, and grime.

General revitalizing tonic – this may be an obscure one, which is why I didn’t add it to the medical benefits. Orange essential oil is seen by many as a general remedy. You don’t need to suffer from any kinds of condition to use it. It is wonderful as a standalone “body maintainer”. It keeps you in shape and protects you.

Orange essential oil can help out with any and all systems, physical and mental. It is a wonderful oil which I feel is overlooked, sometimes. With so many other popular oils, such as lavender and rosemary, or the amazing Australian tea tree, it is easy to sidestep an oil made from a citrus fruit which we encounter on a daily / weekly / monthly / seasonal basis. We are used to oranges, so maybe we think less of them.peel

Either way, I hope this little post was able to broaden your orange horizons, and give you a different perspective on this common fruit. It helps your body to do what it is already doing, and it boosts its functions. Get rid of gas and toxins, improve immunity, and facilitate healthy loss of fat, with the orange’s essential oil. Because it is so prevalent, it may be overlooked, but it is certainly one of the most essential oils there are. I leave it up to you, to make that discovery for yourself.

There Are No Doubts When You Glock

 

Even if you are new to guns, you have – no doubt – heard of the Glock. The name Glock is synonymous with quality and durability. Even those who know nothing about handguns, probably know that name. And there is a reason for that fame.

glock in useIn the early 1980’s, Glock released its Glock 17, and history was made. Some years later, still in the 1980’s, the Glock 19 was introduced. It did not eclipse the 17, because they are two different models of the same 9mm caliber. There’s a really thorough Glock 17 vs 19 article on Gunivore.com. If you wanted to see the differences this would be a great place to start.

The Glock 19 has been reviewed so many times, it is probably cliché to even think about posting another little review. But, there is a lot going on there, so I guess there is always room for one more.

The Glock 19 pistol is made of steel and polymer. Polymer is a substance produced and used by the Glock Company itself. It is a compound based on nylon, but it is oh-so-very strong. It is stronger than many different alloys of steel, and it is durable. Combined with the unique kinds of finishes which Glock administers to its guns, it cannot be beat.

When the Glock 17 first came out, it was ridiculed for being a plastic gun. Now, over 30 years later, we know that Gaston Glock was right. It was a great idea, and it has provided countless military personnel, government agents, and law enforcement officers with means to defend themselves, not to mention every day carry civilians.

The Glock 19 is not ideal for concealed carry, by the way, but it can be done. It all depends on the holster and method of carry. Some Glock 19 holsters are really good, and others can barely merit the name ‘holster’. The choice, as always, is yours.

This gun is accurate and reliable. That is a great combination. If you train with this thing, you won’t have to own any other product or accessory. Sure, there are tons of them out there (some of those accessories are really good!), but most of them are not necessary.

glock youcan trustThere are so many comparisons being made between Glock and other firearms. I don’t have that much to offer to the debate, except to say that the Glock 19 has been carry gun for years. It hasn’t been the same model, though. I switched to a Gen 4, but started with a Gen 3. Both of them are awesome, and I recommend this gun to anyone, regardless of their level of expertise with firearms.

My Knife History

victorinox knifeMy father gave my older brother a Victorinox pocketknife when he turned 10. At the time, I was 7, and I desperately wanted one as well. Well, patience is a virtue, right? A few years later, when I turned 10, I got my very own knife. Since that fateful birthday, I’ve been carrying knives pretty much on a regular basis. In my teens it was on and off, but now I am an everyday carry guy.

My knife collection is not large. I have only a few: a simple Victorinox (not the one I got when I turned 10!), a Leatherman Wave, and a half-serrated Spyderco Police.

leathermanThe one knife I carry on me at all times, is the Leatherman Wave which is attached to my belt. I find it to be the most versatile of the knives I have, which is why it is my go-to blade. The Victorinox is stashed in my car’s glove compartment, and the Spyderco is in my toolbox. If and when I go camping, I take the Spyderco with me, since it is a great outdoors knife.

I use these knives on a regular basis, with the Wave getting more use than the others. It is simply a better tool. However, when I need more serious cutting done, I take the Police out and it makes short work of anything.

In a world of guns, drones, and guided missiles, knives seem almost superfluous. However, in my opinion, they are still a great weapon/tool to have around. Knives have a much more personal feel to them than any other weapon I have used.

I have shot guns, assault rifles, and machine guns; I have thrown hand grenades and pushed detonator buttons (set to detonate unexploded mines and tank shells); a knife is something else. I have used my Spyderco to chop, dice, and slice on many different occasions.

Firearms have their place, for sure, but with a knife you can get up close and personal, be it in combat or in the outdoors. It is part of why I appreciate knife carriers so much. A gun may be more powerful, but to me, a knife is a lot more personal.

I appreciate you stopping by my blog, be sure to come back for more great articles!
