Good Medicine Beauty Lab Review

IMG_7293new

I hope you’re as excited as I am today, to introduce to you some of my new obsessions in the skincare world! I know, I know..I say that a lot, right? “These are my all-time fave!”, “I can’t live without this!”, and “It’s my holy-grail!” – but it is possible to have a lot of specific favourites. :) These are no exception. They are truly exceptional products!

 

You’re wondering why? Well, for one, Good Medicine Beauty Lab is a desert-born, small batch, organic skincare company. (I know, a mouth-full…but so amazing!) They refer to their products as “desert-born” because their skincare formulas are inspired by the types of plants that are able to thrive in harsh desert environments.

Good Medicine feature extracts of wildcrafted desert botanicals such as Larrea, Desert Sage and Juniper Berries. These plants grow in the wild where they are nurtured by sunlight and rain and are neither crossbred, chemically fertilized or even irrigated. They remain free of the harsh chemicals so prevalent in plant life today.

Super rad, right?


One of the first things I notice about skincare (besides their packaging) is their scent. Their products smell SO GOOD.  They have a sort of warm, somewhat masculine, herbal scent. They really are created uniquely! Their ingredients stand out from any other skincare products I’ve come across.

 

A few of their common ingredients are:

  • Desert sage – Powerful antioxidant, rich in Vitamin CThe foliage of sagebrush is rich in Artimitin, a powerful disinfectant and antiseptic rich in Vitamin C. So rich in Vitamin C in fact, that except for rose hips, there is no greater source found anywhere in North America’s deserts.Sage’s antiseptic and disinfectant properties combine with the antioxidant power of Vitamin C to create a germ-free environment to reduce harmful ions and prevent free radical formation.
  • Juniper/berries – Reduces puffiness, purifies & smooths the skinThe berries of the Utah Juniper are best known for their antiseptic (elimination of micro-organisms), aromatic, diaphoretic, diuretic (increases cellular fluid exchange) and rubefacient (increased blood circulation) qualities.The combination of these amazing qualities removes unwanted waste and fluids from the underlying tissues when applied topically, reducing puffiness and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
  • Larrea – Brightens, strengthens & softens the skinLarrea (commonly known as Chaparral or Creosote) is antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-protozoan. It contains high levels of Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid (NDGA), a very powerful antioxidant.These potent properties eliminate acid-forming microbes that cling to the surface tissues, thus preserving the skin’s natural barrier. It guards against rough patches, lesions, red areas, age spots and inflammatory breakouts.

 

Now that you know what amazing ingredients are put in their products, and how truly unique Good Medicine Beauty Lab is, let’s take a look at the products sent to me!


IMG_7295

RAIN / replenishing oil wash – APRICOT + TAMANU + PRIMROSE

Oh, this oil is sooo lovely! This indulgent oil blend is a deep cleaning, intensely hydrating, skin balancing dream. Good Medicine created this specific blend of oils to penetrate into the deepest layers of your skin to release dirt, makeup and pollutants that bind to your skins natural oils. With the perfect ability to balance any skin type (no matter if you are oily, dry or both), Rain will restore you natural skin tone, heal scaring and red spots, and make your complexion glow with perfect health. Oil washing is a beautiful thing….really, really beautiful.


GM_Jar_9oz_Sand__23745.1440019358.1280.1280SAND / red mineral polish – YUCCA + RAW HONEY + VETIVIER

Now, if you know me, you know that I love the beach. Love may even be an understatement! Sunshine, ocean breeze, salty, freckled skin, the feeling of sand between your toes. Speaking of which, ever notice how your skin feels silky smooth after a beach day? That glorious sand (that also can be a pain and get into every nook and cranny) is one of natures best exfoliants! I remember my mum telling me this when I was younger, and how most people know that sand is a great exfoliant, but few ever think to add it to their skincare regime. Well, you don’t have an excuse anymore – beach or no beach!

 

This beautiful head-to-toe mineral polish uses the ancient cleansing powers of wildharvested yucca root, naturally rich in saponins (natural surfactant and emulsifier) to melt away dead skin cells. Its gentle but effective exfoliation actions tightens and tones, while maintaining the skin’s delicate pH balance. Combined with tiny desert crystalized minerals, this vitamin-rich creamy compound reveals smooth, soft, enlivened skin without scratching or damaging cells.


Good_Medicine_Skincare_Clarity_Face_Cream__94119.1438982283.1280.1280CLARITY / awakening face cream – WILD SAGE + DESERT ROSE + GARDENIA

This is my absolute favourite product (besides the eye cream, which I’ll get to) Good Medicine has created. This face cream is silky smooth, goes on like a dream (a little goes a lonnnng way!) and it plumps up my skin, making me look well-rested and glowy – without being oily!

 

It’s a nutrient-rich herbal cream that delivers a power boost of vitamins and minerals, free-radical fighting antioxidants and quickly restores your natural moisture barrier. Its ultra creamy texture and divine aroma quickly rejuvenates the senses while bringing balance and hydration. Anti-aging properties lift and clear the skin revealing a bright, soft and enlivened complexion.


GM_Jar_9oz_Ashes__66664.1440017686.1280.1280ASHES / reincarnation cleansing grains – JUNIPER + POWEDERED PEARLS + LILY OF THE VALLEY

 

Can a germicidal, soapless cleanser be breath-takingly beautiful. This one is! This a gentle non-soap germicidal cleaner that quickly softens and brightens the skin without altering its natural pH balance. It is pretty cool, if I do say so myself! Ashes burst and bubble as they deep clean the dirt, daily pollution and bacteria from your lovely skin. It won’t strip your skin of its natural oils or disrupt its delicate pH balance. This silky soft combination of potato, Vitamin C, 50 plus trace mineral salts, citric crystals, pearls, milk and sugar cane naturally purifies the skin, tightens pores, controls excess sebum and reduces acne and hormonal breakouts. It simply brightens and clarifies for clean, smooth skin.

 

TIP: Use it with your favorite shampoo to revitalize, heal and nourish your scalp.


GM_Jar_1oz_StarryEyes__23887.1440020134.1280.1280STARRY EYES / brightening eye cream – CARROT SEED + ROSEWOOD + COQ10

 

This my second most favourite item that Good Medicine has created.  It does an amazing job hydrating, soothing, smoothing out fine lines and firming puffy eyes. As soon as I apply it I can feel it start to warm and tingle – which I love, cus it means it’s working! (Not to mention I see results!)

 

It quickly brightens and hydrates the delicate skin around your eyes by boosting the production of collagen and proteins. It’s packed with a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, humectants, antioxidants and free radical scavengers. Starry Eyes repairs the skin’s natural defense system to guard against environmental stress. This intense therapy formula promotes blood circulation, cell reconstruction and deep hydration. If you use it daily, it will improve skin elasticity, appearance of fine lines, puffiness and lift dark circles. Your beautiful eyes will be smoother, brighter and refreshed – who doesn’t want that?!


GM_Jar_2oz_HoneyBee__20059.1440014170.500.750HONEY BEE / blossoming revelation mask – WILD HONEY + APPLE PECTIN + ALOE VERA

 

Transform your skin in 1 minute! ONE MINUTE. You definitely have time for that! This wild desert honey mask is truly a miracle worker for dry, tired skin. Good Medicine wild desert tinture blends with age-defying essential oils, creating a hydraulic motion that quickly rebuilds moisture levels in the skin.

 

As Honey Bee purifies and restores balance to every skin type, it stops bacteria growth and acts as a mild alpha-hydroxyl acid to reveal a new layer of skin. This vitamin and mineral-rich formula clears and evens out skin tone, smooths fine lines, firms, hydrates and softens the delicate facial tissue restoring a healthy, youthful glow. Lovely!


IMG_7294

Orange / Celebration Bath Salts – ACCEPTANCE / LAUGHTER / INDIVIDUALITY

Yellow / No Worries Bath Salts – POSSIBLITES / OPTIMISM / MENTAL CLARITY

Though these salts are disguised as a simple luxury to delight the senses, they are actually much more. While working to repair and rejuvenate sore tired muscles, and dull sallow skin, the pure essential oils and color activate the olfactory and neural systems to elevate mood and enliven visual imagery. A little more time spent in our Bath Salts is all it takes to increase mobility, lighten a heavy heart, alter a dismal perspective, and discover anew hidden parts of yourself. Ten short minutes is all it takes to loosen muscles and quiet the mind. Bath Salts leave the skin resilient, smooth and receptive.

How To Indulge:  Sprinkle desired amount into a warm bath just before entering the water and watch as it bubbles and bursts around you, turning first into a frothy lather and then dissolving to a silky colored pool.


There you have it! I hope you enjoyed this (somewhat lengthy) review and now want to go out and buy all the Good Medicine Beauty Lab products! ;) Oh, and of course I have a special lil discount code for ya! 15% off anything in their store with the code “hullosam“! ENJOY! xo

MooGoo Hair Care FOR THE WIN!

FullSizeRender

Alright everyone, I’m about to get real serious – cus this shampoo and conditioner has completely changed my hair/scalp game. Like…FOR REAL WORKS.

 

I was a bit hesitant to try another hair care product that claimed it was all natural, great for scalp, etc etc…but the reviews I kept seeing, reading and hearing about were just too good! I couldn’t pass it up – and boy, am I glad I didn’t!

 

Moogoo is an Aussie company known for being one of the most environmentally friendly companies out there. They’re incredibly honest about their ingredients, customer care and sustainability. They’re also known for their skin and hair care range – for anyone, really – but especially those with troublesome skin. (I.e. Sensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.)

 

My sensitive skin can be an issue when it comes to my hair care, cus even if it’s organic and has decent ingredients – if it isn’t tackling the areas I need it to (dry, itchy scalp and somewhat dry hair) then it’s just a no go for me and sometimes makes my condition worse! Well, I have completely converted to the Moogoo family! Their Milk ShampooCream Conditioner have both soothed my dry, itchy scalp (and yes, it was even like that in the summer – not just cold, dry months) and I have had zero flakiness! Zero! This shampoo for me, removes all – and I mean ALL – product build-up with just 2 rinses! The end result is my hair and scalp feel and look squeaky clean without the typical stripped-of-any-moisture feeling I’d typically get with other hair care. The moisture retention (without feeling weighted or greasy whatsoever) my hair is left with is amazing! I still sometimes can’t get over how amazing it is, and often chat with my sister about it being a miracle product! (She uses it as well, and raves about it too!)


If you’re into green beauty, and non-toxic hair care..then you know the crap that’s in conventional shampoos and conditioners. Irritants, fragrances, carcinogens and crazy toxins. Yep, even in a “mild” scalp care shampoo. Stay far, far away!

 

So, what Moogoo has done is they’ve utilized the use of many mild and gentle cleansers (in small amounts), to control the micro-flora of the scalp that can cause all of the many scalp problems we experience. It’s pH balanced, and is suitable for adults through babies. They explain why your scalp is having issues, they even list every ingredient on their site so you can research and know what’s up!

My scalp is causing me “ big issues”

“Psoriasis of the Scalp” can sometimes be confused with Seborrheic Dermatitis. Seborrheic Dermatitis will cause an itchy or flaky scalp, but can also spread to the hairline, ears, the eyes and eyebrows or along the side of the nose as well as other areas. It is related to Cradle Cap and is a reaction to the Malassezia yeast which is a normal part of the skin’s micro-flora. Our Milk Shampoo and Conditioner are natural and do not irritate the scalp, and we include Piroctone Olamine. As these are wash off products, the time that they can remain in contact with the skin to help is limited. If the condition is severe, a cream such as our Scalp Cream can be rubbed onto the affected areas. Please see our “We got mail page” to read of other people’s experiences.

Plaque Psoriasis can be much more difficult to control and there are specialized products that may need a prescription from your doctor.

 

Moogoo also have a Scalp Cream that they recommend using prior to washing your hair, if you’re really dry and itchy on the scalp. I applied it at night, (in damp hair) and the next morning washed it out. Not only did it give me immediate soothing relief when I first applied it (and throughout the night), but within 2-3 uses my flakiness and itchiness was completely subdued and gone. Along with the shampoo/conditioner – my hair and head was like new!

 

I cannot rave enough about this hair care, and this company! If you have normal hair, that’s awesome – I still recommend it. If you have coloured hair – get it. If you have dry hair, oily hair, scalp issues, no scalp issues – GET IT. It will make your hair not only feel silky smooth and healthy, but it’s just plain good for your scalp and body. Thank you, Moogoo for your dedication to customers, great ingredients and for creating incredible products! You’ve got a permanent fan.

Feelin’ Lippy: Vegan Lipsticks by Lippy Girl

IMG_1971

 

Ladies! We’re talkin’ lipsticks today and I couldn’t be more stoked. If you know me, you know I love me some lip products. I dunno, there’s something special about a tube of lipstick. Maybe it’s cus they’ve been around for aaaages…

“Ancient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago.[1] They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes.[2] Also around 3000 BC to 1500 BC, women in the ancient Indus Valley Civilization applied red tinted lipstick to their lips for face decoration.[3]Ancient Egyptians extracted red dye from fucus-algin, 0.01% iodine, and some bromine mannite, but this dye resulted in serious illness.”

…or maybe it’s just because I’m a makeup lover, and a definitely lipstick hoarder. Lipstick can change your mood, your look..your whole persona, if you really want it to! But enough of why I love it and let’s jump right into why these featured Lippy Girl Lipsticks are rockin’ my life right now!


Focused mostly on lip products, this Canadian-based beauty company Lippy Girl Makeup has been around since 2011. They’ve been making a name for themselves – a great one – when it comes to vegan, cruelty-free and organic makeup. So far, I’ve been incredibly impressed with these amazing, affordable, all natural, top quality makeup products. Here are a few tid-bits that makes this cruelty-free company pretty neat:

 

Natural ingredients. They use all natural ingredients and none of their products contain chemical preservatives like Parabens, Phthalates or petroleum products.

 

Organic. Yes! Lippy Girl uses organic oils to create their fabulous makeup products.

 

Vegan. You read right, everything created by LG makes sure to exclude any animal products. They are formulated with organic oils, bee-free waxes, and natural mineral pigments. Since many people are allergic and get irritated by animal ingredients like carmine, lanolin, keratin, lactose, elastin and more, you will never see these items in their products.

 

These are a few of the main non-vegan lipstick ingredients, but there are certainly others to watch out for, including casein (from milk), collagen (from animal tissue) and glycerin (from animal fat).

 

Cruelty free. Lippy Girl Makeup is a PETA certified cruelty free company. They make their promise to never test their products on animals, but they’ve made agreements with their manufacturer and ingredient supplier that they’ll never test on animals either. So solid.

 

The lipstick containers, which may look plasticky in pictures, are actually made of recyclable aluminum tubes – which make that lovely satisfying little click on closing – and the boxes are made with non-coated cardboard that you can easily recycle!

Okay, let’s get to the good part – SWATCHES!! I’ve taken swatches on my lips, and on my arm so you can get the full gist of it!

“Boss Lady” – A gorgeous matte, brick red with orange undertones.

 

Overall, I adore these lipsticks. They’re incredibly smooth, buildable in colour and Lippy Girl has such a great shade selection! I will definitely be adding to my collection (cus I need more to hoard, duh) very soon.

Here’s a smooth little number for your Tuesday by Sensi Sye – “Forgive“! Enjoy! :)

Vampy Fall Makeup Tutorial!

 

Fall is almost here, and in honour of my favourite season, here’s one of my favourite “dark” looks. Call it goth, call it vampy… I love it. Read on for how to achieve it!


Eyes: I kept the eyes pretty simple, actually. It’s basically all about shading and creating a deepset eye. I applied a matte beige eyeshadow (i.e. Fleur by Alima Pure) all over my brown bone, as well as my lid, as a base for my other shadows to blend onto.

 

 

Then, I took a shade similar to Blond (also by Alima) and applied that into my crease and all the way to the inner corner (with a fluffy crease brush) with small circular motions, as my transition colour. (A transition colour makes the other shadows that are darker blend better over top.)

 

Next, with a smaller brush, I applied a deeper brown shade (i.e. Cocoa) and created an almost sideways ‘v’ shape across my crease and into my lid. Blend, blend and then blend some more to create a super soft eye. I then took a pinky-mauve shade and applied it to the edges of the sideways ‘v’ to soften up the edges a bit. Taking a mix of matte black (i.e Alima Pure’s Satin Matte Eyeliner in Black – also can be used as a shadow) and brown (i.e. Earthy Calm by Kjaer Weis) shades and I deepened the ‘v’ a bit more, to create more depth, intensity and definition. Again, blend it out well!

 

Now, take a black crayon eyepencil (i.e. Hypnotist Eye Pencil in Ebony by W3LL People) and line your upper waterline – aka tightline.

 

Get your favourite black liquid or gel eyeliner out and start mapping out a thin wing/cat eye shape. This is completely optional! I love the dramatic effect it gives, but you can do without the liner if you like!

 

Apply your standard coat of mascara, whichever brand or kind you prefer – I love this W3LL People Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara. It has hyper pure mineral pigments which create the blackest of black for highly defined, luxurious lashes without irritating your eyes. So good!

 

There you go, you did it! You finished the eyes! Continue with your base/foundation and concealers etc, per usual. Check out my post on How-to Apply Creme Foundation, if you’d like a more in depth tutorial on that!

 

Lips: The easy part! Pick your favourite deep wine/berry/plum/raisin lip colour (basically any deep, dark and vampy shade you have) and apply it to your lips with a lip brush. (I love this Kjaer Weis one!)

 

I think a lipstick shade such as ILIA’s Femme Fatale is gorgeous! I sometimes mix it with my black Onyx shadow by Kjaer Weis to give it a deeper, vampier depth.

 

 

Ooh la la, you’re now ready to captivate everyone around you with your bold, vampy fall look!

Santevia Alkaline Water Pitcher Review

 

Santevia_Alkaline_Logo_EN_Reg-01-01

 

The importance of hydration is so real guys, and to be honest, I have always struggled drinking water. But ever since Santevia Water Systems and their Alkaline Water Filtration Pitchers came into my life…I haven’t had as hard of a time.

 

These Water Systems and Alkaline Water Filtration Pitcheres reduce chlorine: taste and odour, heavy metals (not the musical kind…lolol), industrial chemicals and contaminants. Plus it remineralizes your water with important minerals like calcium and magnesium to create alkaline, pH balanced water with high anti-oxidant potential.

 

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 12.09.22 PM


 

Santevia not only makes On-The-Go products, but they also offer Counter Top Dispensers, and my personal favourite: the Alkaline Water Pitcher! This pitcher holds over two litres of water at a time and the filters last for two months! It even has a digital display, counting down the days to when your filter needs to be replaced – and Lord knows I always forget stuff like that!

 

At just $59.99, for the pitcher and $15.99 for a replacement filter, it’s an awesome way to get clean, nourishing water without breaking the bank! If that isn’t enough goodness for ya, Santevia donates 10% of their profits to help people around the world! Including two orphanages in Thailand, a school in Bangladesh, water projects in Africa and Haiti and more! So, so great.

 

If you’ve made it this far…I’ve got some great news! Santevia will be holding a 15% off Pitchers online special starting this Thursday (September 24-27)! Head on over there starting Thursday so you can get in on the deal! ?

Zabana Essentials Review

IMG_1452

Zabana Essentials. Where do I start? Hm, let’s see…this company creates amazing products, and Shanell, the founder and owner of ZE is the sweetest person ever! Friendly, timely, super helpful and overall just a great person. Want to know more about the company and products seen above? Keep reading…

11817136_917885648277452_8633568757638627616_n

Shanell Edwards, is the founder of Zabana Essentials (Pronounced: Zab-Ana Essentials), which is located in San Diego, California. Zabana Essentials got its start when Shanell began her quest to find affordable natural-hypoallergenic bath and body products that would not irritate her sensitive skin. (I feel you girl!) She was a college graduate, attempting to start her career in the workforce and was on a tight budget (like many) and found it difficult to afford many of the well-known natural products on the retail shelves. After reading labels and realizing that she had some of the natural ingredients already in her kitchen, she decided to begin researching and experimenting and found that the answers to her quest were right at her fingertips!

 

It is now Shanell’s mission to offer affordable Natural, Vegan, Human Friendly and Cruelty Free Cosmetics that are not only nurturing for the skin, but enjoyable, attractive, and smell great! Her goal is to reach individuals who may not fit the stereotypical natural products consumer of the past, but people just like herself. People who are seeking healthy, non-intimidating alternatives, for their everyday lifestyle. Pretty great, if I do say so myself!

 

What does Zabana mean:

It is definitely a unique name! Zabana means Savannah in the Native American Taino dialect. What is special about a Zabana to Shanell and her business? A Zabana is a grassy plain eco-system that may contain an abundance of herbaceous plants that lend benefits to us humans. For centuries therapeutic oils have been extracted from natural plant matter to promote good health and well-being. All Zabana Essentials products are of plant derived origin, and every formulation they use the essence of herbs, whether it be through the use of dry herbs or essential oils, herbal or vegetable based body oils and butters. ZE believe’s it is vital that they use the nutrients provided to us by mother earth, as we can find an abundance of benefits using what has been provided to us.


Shanell kindly sent me a few products to try out (the French Green Clay Facial pictured above was my own purchase!) and here are my thoughts on them!

Coconut Charcoal Clay Armpit Detox Bar

(I just swipe it under my pits and rinse out in the sink.)

*Organic, 100% NATURAL & VEGAN, Net wt. .35 fl. oz.  (10g)

 

My experience with the deodorantAs you know, everyone’s body responds differently to products. Deodorant is no exception, in fact, it’s probably the most fickle, in my opinion. I strive to create content for my blog that is honest, positive and generally encouraging to the audience, consumers and the companies that I have the opportunity to interact and sometimes work with!

 

I have had people rave about how amazing they’ve smelled wearing this deodorant, about how long it lasts and how terrific it is overall. I completely agree, and at first…I smelled amazing! Fresh, lemongrass/nectar-y, hah! The protection was awesome too. However, after a long day..the deodorant started to smell a bit sour on me. I can’t really explain it, but it just didn’t mesh well with my body/skin/personal odor. This absolutely does not mean it is a bad product, or that I am even implying to not go and buy it, because it could TOTALLY work for you just like it worked for so many other ladies I know that own it!  Bottom line is it just didn’t mix well with me! Typically I wouldn’t even review something I dislike strongly, but this isn’t the case. I didn’t hate it, and still don’t! In fact, I’m kind of sad my body rejects it. It truly is one of the most amazing smelling stick deodorants I’ve ever come across. It just wasn’t for me! :)


Clay Facial Blemish Drying Lotion: French Green

Gotta a zit?! Zap it with this powerful drying lotion (ironic name, right?)! This stuff treats & heals blemishes, reduces redness, inflammation, & irritation. It’s infused with HEALING, DETOXIFYING, TONING & REVITALIZING essential oils of Tea Tree, Clary Sage, Lavender, and Grapefruit.

 

This stuff is truly potent (in the best way) and miraculous. It really, really works!

INGREDIENTS: Distilled Water, *Hamamelis (Witch Hazel) Virginiana Extract, French Green Clay, *Vegetable Glycerin, *Maranta (Arrowroot) Arundinacea Powder, Zinc Oxide, Essential Oils

Lotion Stick Lavender-Lemon: Thirsty skin? Quench it with this awesome Lotion Stick! A rejuvenating, moisturizing, and fast absorbing blend of plant botanicals leave your skin: soft, supple, smooth, and smelling good – lavender lemon-y good! ;)

 

TO USE: Apply to damp freshly showered skin and pat skin dry for a super velvety effect. On the go? Simply glide the Lotion Stick to the warmth of your skin. I keep this in my purse at all times, and it’s seriously the best on-the-go lotion!
