Jordan Essentials Review !!

Jordan Essentials May Joyful Jordan Box !! 




I have tried the Products in the May Joyful Jordan Box and love them all!!  Joyful Jordan Box Opening!! 

The Salt Scrub that came in the box  is unscented, it is not greasy or oily! I used it on  my hand  I wet them first and then I  got  a small amount of the salt on  2 fingers! I scrubbed  my hands and arms and it left them feeling really soft!!
 I especially love the nail serum, My nails tend to get real brittle and  since using this their growing much better! 
It is a roller ball  and I rolled over the tips  of my nails and then I rubbed it in!! I have been using it everyday and it  has made them feel much better!! 
Then the last thing in the box is the Sea Spa Lotion Bar!  It reminds me of like clean laundry.   It has a very fresh airy type scent.  It is a very nice size  bar.  I  held it in between both hands to warm it up it is a bees wax  base  rubbed  the bar!  You can feel the lotion on your hands then I rubbed on both sides of my hands!  
I have to say these products are amazing!!   The box is valued at 42.00   and you get it for $20  dollars amazing deal!! 
You can order the box 1 month  and skip the next!  Or you can sign up to get boxes monthly!! 

Here is a little about our hostess!! Kim Thompson and her story!! 
You can visit her Facebook page  Jordan Essentials with Kim T
Recently I got a request to do a review for Jordan Essentials for Kim. Kim loves supporting her friends, and could not help but RSVP to her friend's launch party. She had never heard of Jordan Essentials but liked the concept of their "no no list" - what they DON'T put in their products. 


Kim loved the idea of the Joyful Jordan Box - $20 for that month's featured products and valued at SO much more. She saw it as a great way to try out the products while supporting her friend. That first box contained basic skin care products - complexion bar, toner mist, and face brush, just to name a few. Within 3-4 days, She noticed a change in her complexion (her had mild rosacea...focus on the word HAD). Within a week, She stopped using the RX from her dermatologist, which only dried out her skin. Needless to say, She was hooked!

Having recently battled breast cancer, She became a label reader as She knew her diagnosis was linked to the products she used (26 seconds is all it takes for chemicals / ingredients, to enter our bloodstream - yikes!).

Jordan Essentials focuses on product education and helping others with their "healthy skin - healthy life" concept, so the more She learned about the products, the more she found she loved them - the quality, the price points, the health benefits she experienced from head to toe. My friend shared the JE opportunity, and when She learned of their FREE opportunity for military members/spouses, she jumped at the chance (and the 25% instant commission wasn't a bad thing either!). That was almost 2 years ago...and as the days go by, she  loves sharing JE with friends and family, whether it's their magnesium products for relief from aches/pains/cramps & headaches to bath & body to skin care...She knows helping make a difference in their life!

The Ultimate Mother's Day Gift Guide by Moms for Moms




Finding the perfect gift for mom can sometimes be a little tricky. As a busy mom, we rarely get the opportunity to think about what we need, so we go with the classic “whatever you get is fine.” Instead, we’ve asked moms point blank what they wanted, and noticed that many of them were asking for the same things! Here is the ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide by moms for moms.


Every mom dreams of a world where she doesn’t have to clean her own home! One of the most requested gifts was the ability to not have to worry about cleaning their home!

When was the last time you replaced your handbag? As a busy mom, we rarely have time to do any kind of purse browsing! Give the gift of a quality bag that will last the test of time!

Whether you are trying to go out on a date night or just get some time without the kids, having a babysitter prepaid for is an amazing gift!

A comfortable pair of pajamas is on every mom’s list! Especially ones that will last more than a single wash!

Having to unplug and carry around your vacuum is a huge chore! Give mom the gift of a cordless vacuum with less work and allow her to get the cleaning done faster!

If you want to give mom the night off, give her the gift of a meal delivered! Door Dash will allow her to get her favorite food delivered so she can stay in her pajamas and not worry about dinner.

Especially in the summer months, yard maintenance is a huge time suck and one that no one likes to do! This is seriously the best gift you can give!

A Costco membership is an amazing gift idea! Not only are their hot dogs SO GOOD, but she can stock up on all her essentials! If she already has a membership, gift her a cash card to Costco instead!

The gift of books is the gift that keeps on giving! If your mom likes to read, give her the gift of a monthly book box sent right to her door!

Slow cookers are amazing, but they require a lot of think ahead work! Instead, get her an Instant Pot! She’ll be able to whip up dinner really fast and have it taste amazing!

If your mom uses a blow dryer, she will love this upgrade! Her hair will look amazing, and it will be styled in half the time!

Moms everywhere know the struggle of cold coffee! Instead, get her this mug warmer so she’ll never have a cold cup of coffee again!

Does your mom hate to vacuum? Then get her a Roomba so it can get the job done for her!

One of the biggest disappointments is getting a new diffuser but then paying twice the price for the oils! Instead, get her both with this amazing kit!

What mom doesn’t love a glass of wine? Now she’ll never run out with this fun subscription box!

With this list, you can’t go wrong! No matter what you get her, you can just about guarantee it will be something she’ll love!
