t’s been an excellent week for Bionic Beauty… check out these wonderful mentions that the BB blog has received!
First, the most exciting news which has had me floating way above Cloud 9!! Topsy.com, a social media search engine, ranks Bionic Beauty (aka Jami, aka moi) in the top 0.5% most influential users today on Twitter. And if you’re uber-interested, you can find out how Topsy comes up with their Twitter rankings.
The popular website AnswerBag picked up two of Bionic Beauty’s recent articles:
Bronnie’s review of Earthly Body’s Marrakesh Leave-in Hair Treatment and my review of Sally Hansen’s Quick Treatment nail care pens.
The Truth In Aging blog features Bionic Beauty and YBF Skincare’s “3 Years of Powerful Beauty” giveaways as one of their Five Best Beauty Booty Grabs for July.

By now, most Bionic Beauties now that I’m quite a fan of Earthly Body products! My latest product test was their Marrakesh Oil Hair Styling Elixir.
This product absorbs quickly into the hair follicle, provides brilliant shine, serious thermal protection and works perfectly to defrizz and straighten hair. It has a fantastic fragrance and is made from all-natural Argan and Hemp oils mixed with dimethicone (a silicone based ingredient that you’ll find in 99% of shine serums and most makeup primers). The dimethicone also acts as a “carrier” to deliver the oils throughout your hair. This product also doubles as a great leave-in conditioner! This is a heavier product than the Marrakesh X Leave-in (which I reviewed last week) but also comes in a “light” formula that I didn’t test.
Bionic Bronnie tests Earthly Body's Marrakesh Oil Hair Styling Elixir!
I really enjoy having both the Marrakesh Leave-in and the Hair Styling Elixir to use on my hair. They are each unique and suited for different outcomes. For fine hair, I would lean towards the lighter products (either the Light version of the Oil Hair Elixir or the Leave-in).
Here’s a humorous side note about the versatility of the Marrakesh Oil Elixir~
Earthly Body has captured an incredibly unique, delightfully pleasant aroma in their Marrakesh X Leave-in Hair Treatment & Detangler spray. It smells soooo amazing, again I am astounded by the amazing variety of wonderful fragrances that Earthly Body has captured in all of their products. I haven’t found a fragrance from this company that wasn’t absolutely fantastic. They have done their homework and really searched the globe to bring an incredible variety to their skin and hair care products.
Bionic Bronnie reviews Earthly Body's Marrakesh leave-in hair detangler.
I have very long, thick hair so I am a harsh critic with hair products. Marrakesh X is a spray-in silkening, smoothing, and protective detangler with Hemp, Argan and many other pure oils. It also has Aloe, Oat protein and hydrolyzed silk. This product helps protect your natural (or colored) hair and controls light frizziness. It also adds quite a bit of body, which I actually noticed after sleeping on it. My hair was super soft and full of volume! I would call it a “light” product, meaning you should apply it with a less-is-more approach. If over done, remember it is an oil-based product. With the high-quality Argan and Hemp oils being main ingredients, it conditioned my hair well overnight when I “over did it” (on purpose). I wasn’t going to waste the wonderful properties of the Hemp & Argan oil, so I let it soak in and then rinsed it out in the morning.
For this Friday’s Powerful Beauty feature, we are joined by Emily – a publicist and beauty enthusiast behind Earthly Body skin care. You may remember the recent review of their lovely soy massage candles here on Bionic Beauty. Emily was raised in a very “green”, natural environment, so Earthly Body’s all-natural products are right up her alley. Besides studying to be a journalist, Emily enjoys testing out the large variety of the company’s products and teaching her bosses how to use Twitter.
And now, let’s see how Emily defines Powerful Beauty…
Bionic Bronnie introduces a new eco-friendly skin care brand – “Earthly Body”…
It has been an absolute pleasure to experience Earthly Body’s 3-in-1 Suntouched Massage Oil Candles: in mind, body and spirit. Earthly Body’s candles come in a variety of scents and melt into a warm and easily absorbed massage oil.
Each candle is 6 ounces and comes packed in a cute tin with lid and a mini color-coordinated spoon to scoop the massage oil (but I preferred using my fingers!).
Since these candles are soy based, they burn very clean. To help your candle last the longest possible, follow these simple tips:
- Burn the candle all the way to the tin’s edge to keep an even surface of wax,
- If you extinguish the candle prior to burning all the way to the edge, sweep your finger around the raised ridge to level it – rub the excess wax/oil into your skin.
- Keep the wick trimmed to about one-quarter of an inch.
Earthly Body is a family owned company that is devoted to quality, natural skin and body care. They don’t test on animals, and do not use parabens, dyes, or sulfates. All their products are 100% vegan. Their candles contain hemp, jojoba, avocado, vitamin E and apricot oils.
