in , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Friday, July 29, 2022

I know some people that find products and brands they love and they become loyal, repeat buyers. There are a few products and brands that have my completely loyalty, but that leaves lots of room for me to try new products, which I love to do! Especially, new beauty and wellness products.  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been trying out new to me products and today I’d like to share eight new summer products to try with you. 

New Summer Products! 

8 New Summer Products to Try

My thanks to all the brands featured in today’s post for sending me complimentary products to try and share. No other compensation was given, however, I have used affiliate links in the post, where I will receive a small commission should you choose to make a purchase. Thank you.  

FG ♥ BG - Feel Great. Be Great.  

FG ♥ BG - Feel Great. Be Great.

According to the FGBG website, FGBG is more than just a brand! It’s a lifestyle! Founded on the philosophy that when you feel great, you are great! Since I’m a positive vibes person myself, I really connected with their mission to provide high quality products that are ethically sourced.  


FG ♥ BG sent me box of daily pouch supplements to try and even though I’m not normally a gummie lover, I must say, I really like the flavors and how easy it is to take them.  


I tried the Summer Glow tanning gummies first. These gummies are formulated for optimizing your tanning results. Each gummy has nine essential nutrients and antioxidants that trigger natural melanin production and helps with healthy skin. While, I’m not a “tanner”, I do enjoy having a healthy summer glow, so I thought why not give them a try.  

I think the flavor name Miami Vice is cute, but falls a little short of it in my opinion. The pineapple, coconut and strawberry flavor isn’t my favorite, but I’m going to keep taking them to see if I can really see a difference as we head into the hot parts of our summer here in the south.  

Next, I their Hair Skin Nails gummies. This is a tasty strawberry flavored vitamin blend to help maintain healthy hair, skin and nails with a blend of Biotin, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. I love the flavor! I’ll continue taking these as well. 

I also tried their Women’s Multi-Vitamin gummies in mixed berry and orange flavor. These special formulated for women gummies are full of essential vitamins and nutrients like Vitamins A, C, D, E, B-complex and Zinc. Meant to help build up your energy, immunity, bone health, I’ll continue to take these too.  

I also received FG ♥ BG Sol Goddess natural body oil spray.  

FG ♥ BG Sol Goddess natural body oil spray.

This is part of their glow collection to help you perfect your summer tan and look. The oil is an all-natural blend of oils from Marula seeds, Coconut oil, Vitamin E, Carrot seed oil and Sunflower seed oil. I like that it’s unscented, so I can use it anytime without adding a layer of scent. They spray bottle makes for easy application anywhere. You can learn more about FG ♥ BG on their website here.  


Next up I got these fun cans of water made for older kids and kids at heart!  

GEN Z Water- When water is more than just water. It’s an earth friendly movement. 

GEN Z Water

I stopped buying plastic water bottles years ago, and switched my family over to reusable containers, so when I read what Gen Z was doing, I knew I wanted to share this innovative company with you before school gets underway.  


GEN Z believes that happiness is a human right and part of that right is being able to drink water sustainably plays a big part of everyone’s wellbeing. I wholeheartedly agree! GEN Z is committed to ditching wasteful, harmful plastic in favor of a reusable, readily available, recyclable resource instead; aluminum bottles! These bottles can be resealed, refilled, and recycled – keeping water plain and simple for generations to come. Now that is a mission I can get behind! 

I think the water tastes great from the aluminum bottle, and I like refilling it and putting it in the fridge overnight, so I have chilled water waiting for me in the morning. Plus, the fun water bottles come in several fun designs like welcome to the ocean and welcome to the grotto.

At $5.00 each, they are less expensive than most water bottles you can buy today and you are helpful then planet. I call that a win and invite you to learn more about GEN Z water here, or if you are ready to shop, you can use my Amazon link here.  

Speaking of back to school, this next new brand is perfect for adding to school lunches, or having on hand for after school snack time.  

Gnubees: For 2–7.  So good, they won’t know it’s good for them! 


Gnubees is a nutritional snack that is convenient & environmentally friendly, that makes good-for-you taste good! I’m all for sneaking healthier options into my family's food options and I know most parents are. These fun, squeezable, resealable drinks are a perfect to fuel your active kid, while being nutritious. Each pouch is made with real fruit, has 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber, calcium and magnesium. 

I also received some Gnubees for older kids! 

Gnubees Plus- For 9+. 

Gnubees Plus- For 9+.

With Gnubees +, they aged up gnubees for a fresh twist that satisfies our cravings and be that nutritious snack shake older kids (and their parents!) are looking for. They’ve added fun new flavors like tropical punch, strawberry milkshake, and lemon-lime cheesecake.

I really like the strawberry milkshake as an afternoon pick me up! Each of these fruit shakes contain 8 grams of grass-fed whey protein, 4 grams of soluble fiber, and 30% of daily Vitamin C and D. They offer lactose free options as well. Visit their website here to learn more, or if you are placing an Amazon order soon, add them to your cart here.  

Another fun new summer product I’m loving is body scrubs! Of course, I’ve used body scrubs in the past, but I’ve never used a blueberry one. Check out this fun scrub from OSD beauty! 

OSD Beauty, created by the founders of Icon Swim, wants to keep the beachy vibes going all summer long with their luxurious body scrubs.

OSD Beauty

OSD stands for Only Skin Deep and is the core of what this beauty brand is all about. OSD encourages all women to also believe in an all-encompassing beauty and not just a superficial or subjective one. By taking care of your outer beauty in a way that feels good, you’ll also be giving care to your emotional and mental health too. I love that mission statement and I love their body scrubs too, especially the blueberry scrub! 

OSD blueberry scrub

Just look at this fun purple color and imagine taking the time to put on their exfoliating mitt, dipping it into this ultra-thick and delightfully fragrant scrub and massaging it on your body? I’ve been focusing on my legs, but when time permits, I’ll do a whole-body scrub. I invite you to check out their line of body scrubs on their website here.  

With all the BBQ’s and cookouts on our schedule’s this summer, I’m really excited to introduce you to a new brand that has completely won over this small business lover. Meet Elda’s Kitchen. 

Elda’s Kitchen- Small Batch, Artisan Made Sauces. 

Eldas Kitchen Sauces

Elda’s Kitchen, makes all-natural, flavorful cooking and grilling sauces that bring people together.  

The moment I opened up the variety packs of sauces I received, I started thinking of the meals I, or a family member would make and serve with them. The Spkyi Sauce? Perfect for my husband’s wings. The Korean Style Sesame sauce? Perfect for one of my stir fry dinners. The Hamburger Sauce? I’ll bring that to my daughters next cookout.  

I tasted a few and I must say, you can taste, smell and feel the quality and love in each of these sauces. The variety packs offered would make great gifts! As a WAHM running a small business, I absolutely love being able to showcase another small woman owned business here! Please go check out Elda’s Kitchen.

If you’ve been traveling this summer, you’ll enjoy this next new summer product from ATRAC.  

ATRAC magnetic bracelet

ATRAC magnetic bracelet keychain is designed to keep your keys and or cellphone right where they are supposed to be so you don’t have to spend minutes rummaging through your purse. ATRAC is almost like a snap bracelet but with magnets that you can "slap" or "wrap" around your purse or backpack strap without losing them. I tried it out on a recent antiquing trip and can attest that they stay in place! 

Other uses could be your workout pants, or your bathing suit cover up. Any place really where hands free is what you need. The magnets are that strong and secureThe strap is high quality vegan leather, and looks good while being functional. My favorite part has to be the little lip glass pocket! Genius! Check out all the fun color options, their mission to help orphanages in Ghana and more on their website here.  

Last, but certainly not least is a new summer product, is from another woman owned business, meet

A R Z É.

ARZE moon drops serum

A R Z É is the all-natural vegan skincare brand founded by Michelle Gilmore. Her journey into finding organic and non-toxic products began back in 2009 when there were a lot fewer options than today. A pregnancy and cancer diagnosis at the same time was her motivation to look into holistic and wellness remedies.  

Can you imagine being pregnant with cancer? I would really like to hear Michelle’s story, but for today’s post, I’ll focus on this amazing serum I received. It’s part of their collection of natural beauty and wellness products using pure luxe and cruelty-free botanical blends. The eco-friendly brand is sustainable using recyclable glass jars and bottles!  

I am an avid serum user, preferring them over heavy creams, so I was excited to try the Crystal Moon serum I received. It’s a gel-based skin serum that’s anti-oxidant rich, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory. It’s made with pure and organic ingredients like pumpkin seed oil, aloe vera, coconut oil, pomegranate seed oil and more.

The scent is a little strong for my liking straight out of the bottle, but once I discovered how very little, I needed to cover my face, the scent wasn’t over-powering. I really like the feel of it on my face at time of application and in the morning. With a whole line of serums and organic skincare products to choose from, I’m sure you’ll find a product or two to suit your summer skin needs as well, Shop with A R Z É on their website here.  


I had so much fun trying out these eight new summer products and sharing them with you. I hope you find this round up of products helpful.
