Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Review

Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar is an excellent face cleanser for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin.  It cleans very deeply and helps diminish the appearance of acne almost immediately.  I found that it started purging my skin right away.  Within a few days I had significantly fewer clogged pores. The idea of cleansing bars seemed an odd one to me…

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil

When I discovered Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil I was super excited.  I finally found a hair oil that was actually made with only real oils, and they’re organic too! (Read my rant about oils that aren’t really oils HERE)  And it also came in super adorable packaging!  Add that to the name having the word “mermaid” in it and I…

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream Review

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream is amazing.  It is super hydrating and has a nice weight to it for cold weather use.  But it doesn’t clog pores or cause any breakouts, so it should be good in warmer weather as well.  I’ve found that it hydrates deeply and leaves skin feeling supple and comfortable, while soaking in completely and leaving a…

One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm Review

I’m in love with One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm.  I have been using it most nights (but not every night since it’s quite rich).  It is so incredibly hydrating and plumping and nourishing to my delicate under eye skin.  It has been an absolute winter savior in the cold, dry weather my hometown of Victoria, BC has experienced…

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser Review

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser is a great natural foaming cleanser that doesn’t strip or irritate sensitive skin.  I’m a big fan of One Love Organics, and this cleanser didn’t disappoint. It’s a golden gel that produces minimal foaming action when you apply it to your face.  It doesn’t use any sulfates or harsh surfactants, so it…

Empties – December 2016: My Final Thoughts on Stuff I’ve Finished

Something I’ve been meaning to do ever since starting this blog is give my final thoughts about products once I finish using them up.  I started the blog in May 2016, and I’ve been saving my empties ever since.  Originally, I planned to do this every few months, but I’ve been procrastinating…so this is going to be a long post.…

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil Review

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil is only the second cleansing oil I have tried, so I don’t have a lot to compare it to.  But, I really like it.  Just 2 pumps of product applied and massaged into dry skin for about 30 seconds will remove all makeup products.  It will even remove mascara and waterproof eyeliner (although it…

Want to use oils in your beauty routine? Better check the ingredients list

Do you like to use oils in your beauty routine?  Well let me tell you, I’m in love with oils for everything, hair oils, face oils, body oils, bath oils, etc.  I love them all.  Ever since I started using pure oils my life is just better.  I know that sounds kind of ridiculous, but I’m not even exaggerating.  Face oils…

May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate Review

May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate is a spectacular product.  I read so many rave review on other blogs and so I procrastinated on getting a deluxe sample for a long time because I was afraid of liking it.  But guess what, it’s amazing.  So amazing that I am actually willing to consider dropping over $160USD on…

Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist Review

Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist is a great toner-type product for use after cleansing.  It’s definitely one of the most hydrating mists I’ve come across.  If you’re looking for an astringent toner then this is not for you.  But most people (well, all people) shouldn’t be using  alcohol-based astringent toners anyway.  Even a gentle cleanser can be a bit drying, so regardless…
