Petit Vours November 2016 Beauty Box

img_9976-1

I am enamoured with this months Petit Vour Beauty Box! It’s full of amazing, gorgeous products that will have your skin singing, even in this cooler weather!

I’ve recently been enjoying the monthly switch-up of illustrators for the description card that comes in each beauty box. The drawings are beautiful, no matter who the illustrator is – every time! This month, the design is by the wonderfully talented @daniellekroll. I particularly love the colour scheme! Pretty pops of red and blue, alongside pinks and other more muted shades. Danielle drew some classic cosmetics and skincare products lining two shelves. I think it’s the cutest thing – I’d personally blow this image up and hang it as a print in my bathroom! (Hmm, maybe I will…)

Petit Vour’s October 2016 Beauty Box

img_9653-1

I’m always excited to announce Petit Vour‘s Beauty Boxes, but this month is somethin’ real special. Maybe it’s the fact that there’s a full size lipstick in there…you know me, I love my lipsticks! Or maybe it’s a combination of that and the rest of the amazing products –  of course it is! ;) Either way, you’re going to love Petit Vour. I mean, how could you not? It’s a monthly subscription box that contains amazing vegan, cruelty-free and non-toxic beauty products…for only 15 bucks! Say what, Sammie?! That’s amazing! Yeah, I know..wait until you see what incredible products you’re getting! The beauty box comes delivered with four deluxe-sized (and sometimes full-sized, hence the lipstick this month) products. Are you sold yet? Okay…sit tight because I’m about to show you what’s in this months box!

Joy Provisions: Luxe Natural Beauty

IMG_9035-2

I’m always on the hunt for new, safe and clean cosmetics, skincare, body care–ALL THE CARE, basically–that I haven’t tried, and will leave me thinking “WOW! This is goooood!”. With that being said, I recently had the chance to connect with Mimi, the owner of Joy Provisions: an all–natural, luxury beauty shop. I’ve had many opportunities to work with clean beauty shops, all of which were (and still are) awesome! So, what sets apart Joy Provisions from the rest? Well first off, Mimi is the warmest, sweetest lady! She is down to earth, so sweet and incredibly professional. There’s something to be said about someone who can be friendly, relational and professional at the same. I feel like it can be a rare trait to find! I also love her company mission:

Support is a big thing. Not everything deserves yours. We only pick the products that truly do.

Maya Water Facial Mists: A Breath of Fresh Air For Your Skin

IMG_8184-2

 

Haaaaappy Monday lovelies! It’s been awhile. Between prepping for marriage, the actual wedding, the honeymoon and getting back and settled into my new home with my new HUSBAND…things have been a bit hectic! But I’m here, aren’t I? :)

Today’s post is something I’ve really grown to appreciate and love. A facial mist! But not just any facial mist…Maya Water Facial Mist: a clean, mineral-rich and pH neutral thermal spa water mist from Skogshorn in Hemsedal, Norway. I mean…you had me at Norway! But in all seriousness, this unique, high-end facial mist truly does wonders to the skin. With added active antioxidants ranging from white tea, goji and acai. It revitalizes, protects and cleanses dry, tired skin. Who needs that? I do! Especially with my recent traveling to Paris for our honeymoon – an 8 hour flight there – my skin was parched. I sprayed a little of the White Tea Mist and I felt refreshed, dewy and even recharged!

The Deodorant To End All Deodorants: Ursa Major’s Hoppin’ Fresh

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

They don’t want us smellin’ fresh…but we’re gonna do it anyways! #majorkey

Okay okay, but really, when was the last time you were able to say that an all-natural stick deodorant really worked? For me? NEVER. Now, as far as the underarm deodorant game goes..Meow Meow Tweet’s Baking Soda Free Cream Deodorant is the show stopper. It works, plain and simple. However, if you’re wanting to not deal with the actual scooping out of the cream and all…then Ursa Major’s newest addition: Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant is where it’s at!
