Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths

 

Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths are my newest obsession for light makeup removing, or refreshing my face! No, I’m not saying that you should only use a facial cloth to remove all of your makeup, and cleanse your face…that wouldn’t be good for your skin. However, there are times in a gal’s life when disposable wipes are needed. I.e. a hot summers day, or you’re at the gym and need to remove your makeup on-the-go. Or maybe you’re hiking, or camping (or both) and there’s not a sink in sight – the Juicy Bamboo cloths come to the rescue!

 

So, who is/what is Kaia Naturals you ask?

Kaia Naturals is a multi-award winning Toronto based beauty brand with a focus on providing “fast beauty” with a conscience – aka non-toxic ingredients. Their main product, these Juicy Bamboo Natural Facial Cleansing Cloths, were designed as a sustainable alternative to the usual cleansing cloth.

 

Some of the awards Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Cleansing Cloths have won:

Made in small batches, these 100% biodegradable cloths are made of one ingredient: bamboo grass, which makes them super soft and free of any harsh dyes, fragrances and chemicals. The cloths are soaked in organic honey and vitamins B12, C, and E. They’re also 100% biodegradable and act as a cleanser, toner, and eye-makeup remover! They nourish AND re-balance your skin without stripping it bare and leaving it dry. In the past – and generally even now – facial wipes have dried out my skin, but these all-natural bamboo fiber cloths are extremely hydrating and gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skins…I mean, you can use them around your eye area! In fact, they are so gentle, they are also the official cleansing cloth approved for use in oncology esthetics training. That should say enough. :)

These cleansing cloths contain a mixture of:

  • Miel (honey) - non-irritating and known for its healing properties, honey is filled with antioxidants and soothes skin
  • Sorbitan laurate - cleansing agent
  • Sunflower seed oil - emollient
  • Hydrolyzed jojoba esters - emollient

 

Annnnnd they are gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free and paraben-free!

So, as you can see above, these are highly-concentrated cloths with skin-loving nutrients. They’ve got a very distinct, citrusy (and quite pleasant/soothing) scent that comes from a blend of natural essential oils such as spearmint, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and lime. (Yum!) In addition to being eco-friendly, non-toxic, and having amazing ingredients…the packaging the cloths come in are quite unique! Unlike most cleansing cloths which come in a resealable bag (and then dry out super quick), the cloths come in a little plastic container! So, when you’re done using the cloths up you can re-use the container for storing makeup or pencils…or whatever your heart desires!

 

You can find them in a pack of 30 cloths for $15.50 or 20 Individually wrapped cloths for $19.50 – perfect for on-the-go! Even if you don’t need them to remove makeup, they’re a great natural hand-wipe alternative to keep in your bag, car, etc.

 

Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths are available to purchase in some select luxury spas and boutiques across the US and Canada.

Gabriel Cosmetics – Zuzu Luxe Palette

Zuzu Luxe “Peep Show” palette

 

If you’re in the market for a really awesome cruelty-free, gluten-free, and toxic-free neutral palette with a pop of colour (a sizzling gold/yellow shade) – this Zuzu Luxe “Peep Show” Palette by Gabriel Cosmetics is totally for you! It’s been a go-to for me lately, as I love the deeper bronzy/chocolate colours! I love a great summery palette and this one definitely achieves that sun-kissed, summer-look!

 

I really enjoy mixing and matching the super blendable shadows. I apply it with a dry brush for soft day time eye look, or I use a damp brush for a more bold, intense look. It’s however you wish to do it – I personally like to mix the two techniques! The whole palette contains natural ingredients including Titanium Dioxide which functions as a natural sun block. So, you’re not only making your eyes stand out, but you’re protecting them too in the process. Win/win!

 

The Zuzu Luxe Peep Show Palette comes with 4 different eyeshadow shades. They are:

 

Peep Show Shadow Colors
Amber – Sizzling Gold
Toasted – Warm Brown/shimmer
Velvet – Deep Brown/shimmer
Nude – Neutral Ivory

 

Peep Show Powder Color
Translucent – sheer setting powder that leaves skin with a flawless finish (this stuff does some serious mattefying of the skin too, if you have any shine!)

Peep Show Blush Color
Bitten – neutral red for perfectly flushed cheeks (almost as if someone pinched you – in a good way!)

Zuzu Luxe “Peep Show” palette: Nude all over the lid and inner corner of eyes.  Amber on the center of the lid and added more depth/saturation with damp brush.


All in all, I highly recommend picking up one of these palettes, whether it be Peep Show, or one of their other palettes Gabriel Cosmetics will not steer you the wrong way with their high quality, beautifully blendable and pigmented eye colours, blush and powder.

I am currently LOVING this new artist, Amber Bain. She goes by The Japanese House and this 19-year-old London-based singer is blowing me out of the water with her atmospheric 80’s-esque synths and warm, dream-pop sounds. They totally wash over you and make you feel like you’re standing in the middle of an ocean as waves crash in around you. Or, at least to me it does…check it out! ;)
