October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as some of you may already know, I have had a few breast cancer scares, and there are many women in my family who have been stricken with this horrible disease.
With it being Breast Cancer Awareness Month and being hyperaware of my own health monitoring, I decided that I wanted to highlight some products that I either use, or brands of curiosity to me personally.
When I was approached to tell you about some select brands and products I was thrilled because many of these products I already use, and some I was sincerely curious about, some I had not heard of but I am glad that I now have them! Let’s discuss…
First a list of the products we will be learning about:
– You have probably seen the ads on television, I know I have, and I almost purchased a kit because with my health issues, and family history I really wanted to learn more! Well now I am going to find out all about me! I admit I am super excited about this.
2. illumai Biome Care System for Hair
– This is a new line to me and it is super luxurious, as well as scientifically beneficial for your hair. This is super important for women as we age. I am eager to tell you more about it, but first …
3. Ultimate Flora Probiotics
– If you have read my blog for a long time you know that I absolutely 100% swear by probiotics, and Ultimate Flora was the first brand my daughter and I ever tried. This is the brand we came back to after messing around trying a few others. While any probiotic is better than no probiotic, I promise you that Ultimate Flora is the best on the market by far!
4. Lancer Intensive Night Treatment
– This is a brand I have heard oodles about but never tried personally until just recently. So far I am loving it and it has such a lovely aroma as well. When something is on your face you want it to smell good!
What does your DNA say about you? Good question isn’t it! I know I want to learn about my DNA and I will with the 23andMe Collection Kit. I may even share my results with you, well some of them maybe.
The 23andMe DNA Collection Kit is easy to use and you can find out a lot of useful information with the 65+ personalized genetic reports you will receive.
The 23andMe Kit is Genetic Test / DNA Test.
You will have an understanding about your wellness, traits and ancestry, such as family history, how to make more informed decisions about your diet and exercise, and even cool things like what makes you truly unique. I think this section is going to be a lot of fun to discover about myself, such as why I make the food choices I do.
If you are planning on having a family, which this may be too late for some of us, you can see your inherited carrier status. I want my daughter to do a kit for this reason.
First I have to just say I squealed when I opened this product box! It’s everything I could ever ask for in a hair care system! The illumai system is a three step system that helps you #DetoxYourLocks from everyday toxins which is something we need even more as we age! It is an innovative system that gently cleanses, nurtures, and protects your biome, which is the living ecosystem of the scalp, follicles, hair, peptides, proteins, moisturizing oils and related microbiota.
That is a lot of info right? Right! This is why we need to learn more about our hair care, and use products aimed at restoring and retaining a natural healthy microbiome for us.
You know what is the best thing about this scientific hair care system? It is PETA certified which means it is vegan, and cruelty free! Yay!
Oh and if you color your hair like I do, it color safe, and in addition your color will stay vibrant longer when you use illumai.

More About Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic Go Pack:
Okay so this is the brand you want to use if you are considering, or currently taking a probiotic. I also can not tell you how important probiotics are. My daughter has to take them daily or her system becomes so off wack that she becomes violently ill! I am not trying to scare you, but I will say I take them religiously and I can tell I big difference when I go off of them, which I never do anymore.
Probiotics are key to good digestive health. I won’t go into all of the scientific details because there are many, but I will say that having a good balance among all the diverse microbes in your gut is key to our well being.
Ultimate Flora is made with multiple, scientifically studied strains of good bacteria that need to be in a healthy gut. Ultimate Flora Probiotics make sure with their once daily, delayed release vegetable capsules that they get where they need to in order to support a healthy intestine.
I had heard of Lancer Skin Care before because it is known to be a celebrity skin care line, and a luxury skin care line as well. Those two things do go hand in hand don’t they?
Formulated by a Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer the intensive night treatment is an anti-aging product that is formulated with skin beneficial hydrating agents that provide a moisture barrier, healing skin retain healthy hydration.
I have been using it and I can say I do notice a remarkable difference already. I love how wonderful it smells, and that it contains bio-engineered soybean extract that helps reduce my skin flakiness, and Marula Oil for high levels of essential fatty acids.
I will admit I also feel rather special using a luxury celebrity preferred skin care line from Beverly Hills! It is pampering and luxurious!
Believe it or not it was my daughter who introduced me to the Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths! I had of course heard of Summer’s Eve products before but I had never heard of the cleansing cloths until about a year ago. They are live savers!
I have ultra sensitive skin, even “down there” and so I was concerned about using cleansing clothes but I love them and I experience absolutely no irritation because they are super gentle!
Now personal care is a subject I have discussed before here on Fashion Beyond Forty because personal care is even more important as we age, and important to good health.
Summer’s Eve is a leader in feminine hygiene products and developed their cleansing wipes which are pre-packaged for on the go! I love that I can toss one in my tote, or if you work out you can toss into your gym bag. They are great for easily cleansing away odor-causing bacteria.
They are hypoallergenic, and alcohol-free and come in various scents. I was concerned about the scents because perfumes are usually irritating to sensitive skin but once again I promise they do not irritate me.
I use Summers Eve Cleansing Cloths when I sweat, or have a bout of LBL. My daughter uses them during her cycle to stay fresh.
Let’s take good care of ourselves ladies. What once may have been considered pampering products truly are necessities for our health and overall wellbeing. I realize we all have budgets to consider, but I have let go of other non-essential items in order to “pamper” myself with products that make me feel good inside, and out. From taking care of our aging skin, and hair, to supplementing our bodies with healthful nutrients, to feeling clean and ready to face the world, to having a greater knowledge of ourselves, the products listed above are a great place to begin your journey of being your best you.
Please go click a few links above and let your own personal wellness round up begin. Oh and don’t forget about those discounts!
I love comments, and I would love to hear about any of the products you have tried listed above.
