Radiantly You with Erin Brown #HolidayGiftGuideReview




As many of you know, I was recently diagnosed as Gluten Intolerant. Since finding this out, I decided that I needed to make a change not only with my diet, but with the products I use daily. I've been able to make the switch easily with my food, but I've been combing through many different natural products for my skin and for my home. So when Erin Brown gave me the opportunity to try some of the products from Radiantly You, I could not wait to try them. 



I've heard a lot of good things about Radiantly You, but never had the chance to try them for myself. Radiantly You offers All Natural and Organic Products, and I got to choose three different products to try. I had a really hard time deciding on what I wanted to try because they all sounded so amazing. But alas, I was able to settle on their Bug Away bug spray, Dead Sea Mud Whipped Face Wash, and All Natural Tub Scrub

All Natural Tub Scrub, Bug Away, Dead Sea Mud Whipped Face Wash

As soon as the package arrived, I looked through the box, excited to try out my new products. I immediately grabbed the All Natural Tub Scrub and took it to my bathroom. When we purchased our home, the previous homeowners had the master bath tub fitted with Re-bath. The tub and shower look great, but it came with specific cleaning instructions. We could use no chemical cleaners and nothing abrasive. It has been really tough finding a cleaner for this tub, it is really hard to keep clean.

All Natural Tub Scrub

The All Natural Tub Scrubs ingredients are Sodium Bicardbonate, Ry's Castille Soap, Sodium Carbonate, Aqua, Hydrogen Peroxide, Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and is Certified Organic. The directions state to scoop out and little or as much as needed, scrub onto the surface and let sit 5-10 minutes,then rinse with water. So I decided to test these simple instructions on the dirtiest spot in my shower. The Soap try. My husband lets the soap pile up and it becomes this sudsy, soap scummy, mess that I can never get clean. It is disgusting! I usually leave it to him to clean, which means it doesn't get clean. Ever! 


Dirty, Soap Scum, Tub 


I scooped a small amount onto the surface of the shower and began to scrub. I could see an immediate difference in the appearance of the shelf. It was less scummy and the grime was coming right off. I was barely scrubbing and was so happy that it was cleaning the mildew right off the shower. I let the product sit for a little more than 10 minutes, because I got a phone call and forgot about it. I ran back to the shower once I realized how long it had been , but thought, I have nothing to worry about. Since the Tub Scrub is All Natural, there were no chemicals to worry about breathing in and the smell was fantastic, a light orange scent.


Tub Scrub In Action

I was in awe of how well the scrub had cleaned the soap scum, so I decided to scrub the rest of my tub. I didn't do a huge clean, but this stuff works like a charm. It got off built up gunk that I've never been able to clean before. I am in love with how well the All Natural Tub Scrub works, that I will be telling everyone I know to go buy some. It is the best cleaner that I have ever used. I actually look forward to wiping down the shower once a week with this stuff. It's not a chore anymore! 


Sparkling Clean Tub

So a few days later I gave the Bug Away a try. Bug Away is an all natural bug spray that is safe for your kids and pets. Bug Away contains: Witch Hazel, Aqua, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Citronella Essential Oil and Cedar wood Essential Oil. It is also certified organic. You can imagine with all those essential oils, how lovely this spray smells. 

Bug Away

The first thing I noticed about this spray is how light it feels on your skin. It doesn't leave a sticky feeling on your skin, and washes off easily. I generously sprayed my skin and clothing before I headed out into the yard to cut the grass. I waited about 10 minutes before I went outside to give it a chance to soak into my skin and clothes. I had really high hopes for this spray and was intrigued to see if the essential oils helped deter those pesky mosquitoes. I worked in the yard for about 2 hours and had not one single bit. I couldn't believe it! 

Goes On Lightly, Feels Like Water

Now, a few days later, it was chilly and damp out. I was wearing shorts and decided to head out to the yard to cover some holes that my dog had dug up. I didn't even think to spray myself because I wasn't planning on being outside for too long. Well in the few short minutes I was outside, I managed to get about 6 bites. I was so mad at myself for not spraying myself down. Since the Bug Away has Tea Tree Oil in it, I decided to spray it on the bites and see if it would help take the itch out. And wouldn't you know, it did. I stopped the bites from truly forming. It was unreal. I've never seen a product do that before. 

Safe Ingredients

Since the Bug Away is All Natural, it is safe for pets and kids, and that was a big reason why I decided to try this spray. I'm going to keep this with me wherever I go, it's a lifesaver and I can't imagine using any other bug spray. I keep this on the fireplace mantle by my back door. It's always within reach if I have any issues. 

I saved the best for last! It has quickly become one of my favorite skin care products, and I'm hoping that it will become your favorite, too! That product would be the Dead Sea Mud Whipped Face Wash. It's a mouthful to say, but it is something I am so grateful to have. 


Dead Sea Mud Whipped Face Wash

I've been fighting allergies for a long time, and have been receiving shots because of them. On the days that I get my shots, and sometimes a few after, my skin becomes very red and itchy. I try not to wear a lot of makeup on those days and have been looking for a gentle, natural, face wash to use. I normally exfoliate in the shower with my face wash, but I needed something that would help ease some of these side effects. 

The Ingredients are: Olive Oil, Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil, Aqua, Sustainably Harvested Palm Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Dead Sea Mud, Tea Tree Oil, Tocopheryl, and again is certified organic. 

Thick, Moisturizing Face Wash

I waited until I had to get a shot, I go twice a week, and I decided to was my face as soon as I got home. 
I opened the container and noticed the calming, earthy scent, and I began to feel relaxed. The texture of the mud is light, but the consistency is very rich. The directions state to use a pea sized amount to cleanse the face morning and night. Once applied to my face, it began to lather nicely and felt so good on my skin. It had a cooling sensation and I began to wish my husband were washing my face so I could sit back and relax. 

Just A Small Drop Goes A Long Way

Once I felt that I have washed my face well enough, I rinsed and patted my skin dry. I noticed that my face was not as red as it usually is after I wash it. I'm also suffering from some acne that decided to show it's self. I am hoping that the Tea Tree Oil will help reduce the redness and swelling and help clear the acne quickly. I can already tell a difference in the appearance of a few, after just a few days.  I was worried with all the oil in it, it would leave my skin oily, but it doesn't. Oil is so good for your skin and I've been too afraid to try it since I have very oily skin, but this is the perfect amount of oil. I'm so glad that I went for it. 

I could easily see The Dead See Mud Whipped Face Wash in a high end spa, or beauty salon. I just recommended it to a friend who, like me, has large pores. Since the mud is supposed to help reduce the size of pores with out over drying your skin, she could not wait to try it either. I'm trying to get her to come over to my house so she can try it out and see how great this stuff really is. I know she'll love it as much as I do. 

I am so very pleased with Radiantly You and glad that I got the chance to try out their products. All of the Radiantly You products are very affordable. 

The All Natural Tub Scrub comes in a 16oz Tub and is $8.50

The Bug Away is $8.50

  1. I really enjoy your reviews! I am not Gluten Intolerant, but I do have Lupus with complications so I am trying my best to use as many natural/organic products as I can afford. Sadly, some of these natural products don't seem to work that well for cleaning. Glad to know that these do the trick! I'll sure keep them in mind next time I'm in the market!
