It is strange that we wash our faces and bodies with so many chemicals daily then wonder why we have allergies, rashes and illnesses. Combined with diet and lifestyle, we get more than our fair share of toxins everyday. Once we had The Kid, I became more aware of how many toxins are in baby soaps and products plus he had super sensitive skin. After his first rash at 2 months old, I gave up on finding a truly natural skin care line in stores and started making my own body butter. After perfect that, I moved on to making hand and body soaps for my entire family. I only use edible ingredients to make everything so it’s all zero-toxin and safe for all ages of skin plus healing for skin ailments. (Sometimes, I sell them.)

HOWEVER, for years I’ve been searching for a face and skin care product that was natural enough to be eaten…until now.

Ladies (and Gentlmen), GET YOUR LIFE with IWI FRESH! Iwi Fresh is a Black-Owned, Farm-to-Skin Spa in Atlanta, Georgia. Unfortunately, I live in Texas but my amazing cousin who knows about my zero-toxin obsession told me about Iwi Fresh. I purchased the entire face line minus the make up remover since I don’t really do make up often at all.

The results of using the Iwi Fresh Farm-to-Face and Farm-to-Body skin care products were so incredible that I made my first video, just so you can really see my skin. It was nighttime and I had no special lighting, just the ceiling fan lights of my sunroom and the glow of my computer screen.

The only thing I wish is that Iwi Fresh’s products came with instructions on how to use each product in the entire line to get the best results. It helps to know which order to use each item. Even without instructions, I got amazing results and you will too. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM as they are this Mom’s indulgence in every shower, now. I can’t wait to see how my skin responds over time to such a natural, healthy skin care routine! Watch the video then head on over to to get you some of their magic. If you live in the Atlanta area, please take advantage of the spa! I can’t wait until my next trip to ATL. Iwi Fresh will be my FIRST stop and I plan to be there all day!

And if you’re interested in some so-pure-it’s-edible Body Butter, let me know and I’ll whip your family up a nice batch 😉


Natural Product: Iwi Fresh Face and Body

I’m on vacation and taking a moment to think to better ways to take care of myself. My face and skin need to get some TLC since having Baby #2. In a few weeks I’ll be embarking on my Mommy Makeover with Alexis Shelton (IG: @lexluniverse), owner of The Groom Room, podcast Hip Hop Across The Board and blogger That will take care of the hair and clothes but my skin is another layer. I’ve decided to turn myself over to the products of Iwi Fresh, I heard about this Black-owned Spa with Farm to Face and Body products from my favorite Mom, Kamille Whittaker (IG: @jumpatthesuns). Iwi Fresh of Atlanta is also where my gorgeous little cousin/niece Kamani, (IG: @kamani.forever) was an intern and is now a summer employee!! Just now, I purchased the Squash-Lettuce-Carrot-Cucumber face kit, the Flax Grits Mato Antioxidant Face Scrub and the Lettuce Strawberry Mint body scrub. I can’t wait to tell you more about these products and my skin responds!! Now, showers can include a spa skin treatment for my face and body! Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

This time, my postpartum recovery was deliberately planned so that I don’t forget about myself. I did that for six months after The Kid’s birth. I was so in love that he came ahead of my self-care. It did no one any favors to put myself last. I knew better so I did better with The Teeny One.

Can’t wait to share about Iwi Fresh!!
