It’s been awhile since I chat about skincare on here. Like, truly went in depth and shared with you why I don’t typically switch up my skincare routine often, if at all. But let me say, IF and when I do add new products to my regimen, it’s gotta be good. I mean, everything I talk about or promote is going to be stinkin’ good – and I’m going to support it 100% – but with skincare, I’m even more specific. Not only cus it’s my delicate, sensitive skin and it’s basically me bathing in it…lol but also I’m implementing something new into my daily/nightly ritual and I want it to be effective and really wow me.
Adaptogens and herbal supplements. We hear about them all the time! They’re in smoothies and matcha lattes (my personal favourite), people add them to baked goods…they’re taking over! But why? What’s all the hype? Is this a trend? Well, not only do adaptogens promote wellness…but they promote beauty on the inside. And when you’re using quality, organic products – not only on the outside, but internally – your skin and body will thank you! As far as this being a trend, eh..I definitely think more people are coming onto the whole adaptogens in your smoothie and lattes deal, which I love! I think that it’s awesome more are becoming aware to the powerful healing abilities of plants! But, remember, too much of a good thing isn’t always good. So, to learn more about adaptogens, read on..
Happpppy September! I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been to finally share with you this months Art of Organics + Laurel Whole Plant Organics September Clean Beauty Box collaboration! This Clean Beauty Box – through the Art of Organics monthly subscription- is incredible and particularly special as I had the chance to test it for about 6 weeks (3 times a week or so)to see how my skin took to it. As you can see in the photos below, it also came with a gorgeous masking brush and perfectly sized masking bowl! Let’s just say this may be one of my new favourite masks, and I know you want to know why…it’s why we’re here, no? ;)
Live Inspired Organics; hand-crafted, body care created out of a passion cultivated in the belief that behind every superior product, there is a powerful story – now I can get behind that!
A story of all-natural, no harm and organic beauty as told by each beautiful ingredient.
So, what’s the story behind Live Inspired? Well, it’s pretty simple really – aren’t those the best kind of stories anyhow? ;) – nourishing, healing and renewing products are a result of the use of superior all-natural, pure and organic ingredients. These incredible ingredients, combined with all of the love and gratitude that’s poured into the products made make this company really stand out. Gina, their founder, is one of the sweetest souls! It’s been such a pleasure connecting with her over the past couple of months. She has a heart of gold, and you can really sense that in conversation (whether that be on Instagram or e-mail) and yep…products!
Welcome back and happy August 24th! Can you believe it’s already almost September? I can’t. The summer flies by!
Let’s not waste any time! This month’s Petit Vour Beauty Box was all about Green Beauty Bliss! It came with such a cute description card too – as always – illustrated by the lovely Mia Charro. If you’ve never heard of Petit Vour, where’ve ya been!? Just kidding..haha. Petit Vour is a monthly subscription box that carries amazing non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty products…for only 15 bucks! Yeah, that’s a steal for all the amazing products you’re getting – which are way over $15 by the way. The beauty boxes each come packed with four deluxe-sized (and sometimes full-sized) products. So great!
Welcome back to the second part of my skincare routine! Today we’re chatting about my Evening Skincare Routine. My end of the day, get-ready-for-bed, winding down skincare regimen is fairly simple…although my husband Davey would probably say it takes forever! Haha, it’s true though, I love to take my time with skincare. Cleansing and massaging and masking…it’s truly my favourite part of the day. If you read my Morning Skincare Routine, then you know all about my skin type, issues and all that fun stuff.
Here I am again, back at it with another Beauty Box from Petit Vour! I know, I know…I’m late…but hey, no worries because this post should give you a little taste of how awesome these monthly beauty box subscriptions truly are – then you’ll just have to sign up for next months box….and the following months ahead! ;) Never heard of Petit Vour? PV is a monthly subscription box that hosts some amazing non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty products…for only $15! Each box comes packed with four deluxe-sized (and sometimes full-sized) products – which, I think is an awesome deal. Not to mention, you’ll discover some wonderful new brands that are safe for your face, body and more! Oh, and of course it comes with the cutest little description card, describing all of the products within the box – along with the perfect illustration by Mia Charro(which so happens to be an adorable mermaid print, for the month of June!) Love it!
