I’m A Choosy Chick

The Choosy Chick box I received

 

Would you just look at all these goods!? The Choosy Chick knows how to supply a girl with some great clean products! The Choosy Chick (TCC) is committed to researching, sampling and selecting the finest non-toxic personal care products.  They’ve developed their very own standard (click to read more about that) for ingredients which has become the foundation for their product selections. What I love so much about TCC is that they are not only wonderful at what they do, but they are not fooled by natural sounding names, or natural looking packaging. They truly dig  deep to find products that meet their standard of organic and natural.  So, as a result of their ‘choosy’ nature, they offer the purest, most effective and unique products available right now. I just love that – getting to choose the products that fit right for you, and knowing that they’ve been hand-picked by some really smart, honest and organic-loving people!

 

The items seen in my box are:

 

All of these products have been used and absolutely loved! TCC really does pick the best products to be sold on their site – I am VERY impressed with the quality! The super cute packaging it came in doesn’t hurt either!

 

A few products I especially love are:

The Au Naturale Eye Pencil in ‘Coco’. It glides on SO smoothly (no tugging needed, hallelujah!) and the formulation is super gentle, so it won’t irritate my eyes. Win!  (Photo below of ‘Coco’ swatched on my arm.)

Josh Rosebrook’s Styling Cream. This. Stuff. Is. Awesome! It provides texture to my hair, with a nice medium hold (as it says) and smells AMAZING! Kind of like a lemon sorbet…YUM! I also love that this styling cream stimulates the cells in the hair follicle and feeds the scalp to keep your hair growing thick and beautiful. All of the benefits! Plus, it’s not stiff and washes easily from the hair. I can’t seem to get enough of it!

Petit Vour Beauty Box

IMG_7213

 

Beauty Boxes have been all the rage lately, containing beauty samples and other skincare products (sometimes full sized) that make you look and feel beautiful, and – if you’re lucky – aren’t even released in stores yet! Not only are they great for the smaller sample sized products that won’t clog up your bathroom cabinets – but many of the subscriptions average out to less than 20 bucks a month, but still provide a value of twice that or more! That’s pretty great! The only downfall these boxes such as Ipsy, Birchbox and Glossybox (to name a few) have is, they don’t always contain products with the friendliest of ingredients. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out you could get a beauty box that carried some safer, organic, cruelty-free and luxury (yes, luxury) vegan brands! It also has the cutest little French name! ;)

 

Petit Vour delivers monthly, wonderful little beauty products right to your doorstep. Inside your cute pink box, you’ll find four to five personalized beauty products for you to apply, blend, buff, lather, soak, and spray. These beauty samples are generously sized (and sometimes full-sized! Love that!), with enough product for you to figure out if it’s right for you. Thank goodness, cus Lord knows I am picky and always love trying samples before making a solid decision.

 

There are a few different options to choose from, one month, three months and six months. My pick and the best bang for your buck, is the one month at only $15. The $15 also includes free shipping and 20% of your order goes back to you! Pretty great deal, if you ask me!

 

What I Received In My Box:

 

  • Suntegrity’s “5 In 1” Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen – Tinted (sample size)
  • Lauren B’s Nail Couture nail polish (full sized)
  • Box Natural’s Luxe Towelettes (2 samples)
  • The Konjac Sponge Co’s French Pink Clay Facial Puff Sponge

 

I highly recommend signing up! It’s super easy and takes no time at all – plus, you can cancel at anytime! Head over to the Petit Vour website to get started!

Oh, and in honour of all things French – here’s a great tune by Christine and the Queens, “Saint Claude”.

Alima Pure, Purely Magical

You know when you love a song so much, you put it on repeat and enjoy it until you seemingly can’t anymore? Well, Alima Pure‘s products have pretty much done that for me. I don’t even think I’d ever get tired of it…truly. The pigment, the ingredients, the overall packaging – THE QUALITY. Good heavens, you guys. They’re amazing. It not only feels great ON my skin, but I know that it is great FOR my skin, and body! If you’re keen on knowing more about what Alima Pure does, the heart and soul (plus ingredients) behind their organic products – read more HERE.

So, here we are again. Talkin’ lipsticks, blush and brush, this time. Some of the essentials that I can’t do without! The lipsticks seen above are “Georgia” and “Emma” (click on the link to see all six of their available gorgeous lip shades). I’ve also swatched them on my arm (below) and have as well posted pics of them on mah lipz (sorry, couldn’t help it). I am smitten with these cool toned pinky colours!

 

Georgia is the perfect vibrant raspberry shade. It stains the lips so beautifully that the colour lasts for hours! It’s quite the pop of colour on your lips! Super rockstar in my opinion. Not to mention it glides on smoothly and is a lovely velvety finish.

 

Emma is a lovely neutral flushed pink. A bit more muted, for those of you who aren’t all about the pop of raspberry that Georgia provides. Just like its sister, Emma provides a long lasting and velvety smooth finish. I just adore it – adore these lipsticks!

As if those beauties above weren’t enough, let’s talk about how amazing their Satin Matte Blush in Mimosa is! The perfect flush of soft peachy rose! It, to me, almost acts as a bit of a bronzer because of the warmth the peachy tone lends to it. So beautiful!

 

I applied this gorgeous shade of blush with Alima’s #7 Half Moon Brush, the softest, most amazing little guy! It is the perfect size, easy to hold, and the silky tapered bristles make this brush ideal for blending, highlighting, and contouring. Also, the bristles are 100% cruelty-free Taklon fiber. The first moment I took this brush out of its packaging, I just ooh’d and ahh’d over how soft it was – probably one of the softest contouring/blush brushes I own!
