Bare Minerals High Shine Eye Color

photo 3The ultimate high shine eye color- hence the name High Shine Eye color! I seriously love these eye shadows. Super shiny, extremely pigmented- foiled metallic gleam! Simply gorgeous for those who love their eyes to glisten!

I used the Bare Minerals High Shine eye colors as full shadows and as liners- They were so smooth and spectacular. The colors were all so lovely- and really brought bold attention to my eyes.

-Colors from left-right~ Moonshine (Plum/Pink), Glisten (Light Golden), Frost (Silver), Patina (Khaki green with gold sheen)-

They come in a convenient cushion tip- on the go applicator but I did not find that the best way to blend the color. I used the cushion tip to apply the pigment- and would blend with the brush of my choice- depending If I was wearing it as a full lid color or liner! It was so long lasting- even without a shadow base it lasted from the morning until the evening!

Neuth Cosmetics is an elegant and simple skincare line that uses all natural and organic ingredients that are all sustainably harvested by fair trade suppliers. The line currently consists of two skincare products designed for your nightly care routine, and they truly do prepare your skin for the best beauty sleep possible.

Organic Crème de Visage (Cleansing Cream)

Literally the most decadent, luxurious, plumping, hydrating cleanser I have EVER tried! And since returning from humid, hot Turkey back to dry- cold Canada, my skin started to resemble raisin bran… Seriously! I was in desperate need of this cleanser!
The Neuth Organic Creme de Visage is an amazing nightly cleanser designed to nourish, cleanse and remove makeup. It feels like butter- literally, and is complete relief and repair for dry, sensitive, mature or damaged skin. With ingredients such as Grape seed oil, coconut oil and rosewater it’s no wonder my skin is soothed, hydrated and plumped after each use! It removed all my makeup, including mascara and long wear liner!
This luxurious cream is stored in a classic dark glass jar to ensure potency and integrity of the ingredients, while looking completely elegant.

How to use?

Take a quarter sized amount, cleanse into dry skin, all none waterproof makeup can remain on the skin! Gently massage the Organic Crème de Visage into the skin for 30-60 seconds. Moisten a cloth with hot water and gently wipe away the Crème from your skin. I liked to splash my skin after I wiped the Crème away, although it is not necessary to do so. Reveal- glowing, instantly hydrated skin!

Ingredients: Organic Grape Seed Oil, Rosewater, Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Organic Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Lanolin

Organic Afterglow Serum

A delightfully smooth, lavender infused night serum that compliments the unbelievable hydrating experience of cleansing with Organic Crème de Visage! Light weight yet deeply nourishing- this oil based serum calms and smoothes skin. Great for complexions that are dehydrated, dry or mature. I loved the way the Organic Afterglow Serum felt on my skin, extremely soft and soothing, it was a treat to experience before to sleep. In the morning my skin was radiant, soft and in one word- comfortable. I did not feel dry or tight, nor did I feel overly oily or as if I needed to wash my face immediately- It felt great! Also housed in a dark pump to preserve the sustainably harvested, fair trade ingredients-Rosehip oil harmoniously blended with Lavender essential oil for a peaceful beautifying experience before bed- sweet dreams!

How to use?

Right after cleansing- while skin is still damp apply two-three pumps of the Organic Afterglow serum over face, neck and decollete .

Ingredients: Organic Rosehip Oil, Lavender Essential Oil

I was sent a lovely package containing a couple of the SBT Seabuckthorn products to try and tell you about!

Berry Essence Skin Salve

The Berry Essence Skin Salve is a perfect, basic every day skin salve good for all skin types and all concerns along the way. Completely naturally unscented- it is also ideal for those who are concerned with scent or irritation to essential oils. It is formulated with a high concentration of Sea Buckthorn seed and fruit oil. With the high nutrient content of Sea Buckthorn oil- rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids- this salve is a skin loving, anti aging awesomeness in a tin!

How to use the Salves?

By scraping a small amount of the salve from the tin and warming it in my palms to create an oil, I used the salve everywhere including my face (favorite place). I really loved them on my cuticles, hands and heels! They are so compact and easy for travel, you don’t have to worry about any oil spills. It softens, soothes and smoothes my skin. I loved to use it after shaving to keep my skin extra smooth and soft while soothing any irritations I had. You can apply 2-3 times a day!

My favourite would have to be the Sensitive skin soothing salve, because of the light lavender scent- I found it so soothing. They have so many different Soothing Salve options including Rosacea, Sunburn, Stretchmark and Scars etc!  As mentioned previous SBT Sea Buckthorn makes many other different product options all infused with Sea Buckthorn goodness! Please keep your eyes peeled for SBT Seabuckthorn in my next Giveaway! Coming soon!!!

Since my skin is ever changing its mind on which type it would like to be, the Morning Dew moisturizer was perfect for my oily or acne days! I love the way it feels on the skin, it is so lightweight but you still feel comforted by the hydration it offers. I used it both morning and night, but found it perfect for day, underneath my makeup!

With pure ingredients such as Sweet Orange, Lavender, Carrot Seed and Geranium, I definitely noticed a softened look and feel to my complexion. It left me matte to the touch, and helped to reduce the redness and inflammation of my blemishes.

It has so many uses beyond treating dry skin; Infused with ingredients such as Arnica, Rosemary and Peppermint, this cream can help with a wide range of skin rashes, aches and pains and just for relaxation.

ohm
The Aroma Crystal Ohm cream is a decadently rich anti aging cream. It is amazing at nourishing dry, dehydrated skin and perfect for those concerned with combating the signs of aging! Rich in Carrot seed oil, Shea Butter, Lavender and Geranium it is the perfect blend for those with dry, sensitive and maturing skin. I used the Ohm in the evening because it is quite rich, but it is water soluble, so you can opt for a lighter application by applying to a damp skin!

Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant

strawberrydermafoliantEverything I review on my site I enjoy very much, but some things that I try, I cannot live without! The Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant by Eminence Organic Skincare is one of those cannot live without products! It is a rice based powder for all skin types that gently exfoliates the skin to reveal a smooth, radiantly clear complexion.

image(11)
It is a dry powder that must be activated with water. You can mix it with your cleanser, mask or just with water alone! I personally use mine in all the above ways, and find them equally as effective! The Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant literally leaves my skin so soft and refined that my skin feels completely reborn after using it. It is so gentle that you can use it 7 days a week, although I do not recommend such frequent exfoliation (read my exfoliation article)!

photo(5)
I live a busy life (as we all do) and sometimes find it hard to fit in all my skincare steps. So I often will mix my mask with the Dermafoliant and get a 2 in 1! Just add equal parts mask and Dermafoliant on damp hands and massage on damp face and leave on for 15-20 minutes! Rinse and notice visibly softer, refined skin.

photo(6)

The Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is loaded full of amazing skin nourishing ingredients! Read Below, I could not describe them better myself!

image(10)

When you mix the powder just with water, you can really smell the Strawberry Rhubarb and it is like rubbing pie powder on your face! YUM! I absolutely love it. You use such a small amount of the powder (about a quarter size) per use, so it lasts such along time!!! This Dermafoliant is a must!!! There is nothing like it.

*Please note

DO NOT KEEP IT IN THE SHOWER, THE POWDER MUST REMAIN DRY!

AVOID EYE AREA, THE FINE RICE POWDER WILL IRRITATE THE EYES IF IT GETS INSIDE!

Simple and effective DIY mask collaboration with Habiba Da Silva

It’s nice to read reviews about products you can purchase, but it is also great to have DIY recipes that are fast, cost effective and deliver results. My fellow blogger Habiba from lifelongpercussion.blogspot.com and I decided to do a fun post and switch DIY recipes for face masks. We each picked one for the other and tested them out!

I asked Habiba to try my Milk, Honey and Rose Face Mask. This mask is designed for smoothing and soothing the complexion. Great for all skin types, but especially sensitive, dry, dehydrated and lack luster complexions.

Recipe:

1 TBSP of milk (Preferably whole milk)

2 TBSP of honey

1 TBSP Rosewater

(For the ingredients above, organic is the best!)

Milk- Contains Lactic acid which helps to exfoliate dead skin and reveal a smooth, radiant complexion. Also has incredible soothing qualities.

Honey- A natural humectant, it helps skin retain moisture. Honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties and is wonderful for soothing and gently purifying the complexion.

Rose- Powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. Aids in redness reduction and helps to increase skin circulation leading to a more even toned complexion.

Directions:

Saturate a cotton round in the mask and rub liquid on the skin, wait 10-15 minutes, or until dry, rinse and reveal beautiful skin!

Habiba’s Thoughts:

I really loved how cleansed, radiant and moisturised my skin looked and felt after this mask, the surface of my skin felt much more smoother. I loved it! I will definitely be using this again! I love the toning properties  and scent of rose water too :)

Recipe:

1 TBSP of Honey

1 TBSP of Yogurt

(For the ingredients above, organic is the best!)

Oats- Act as a manual exfoliation

photo(3)

Honey- A natural humectant, it helps skin retain moisture. Honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties and is wonderful for soothing and gently purifying the complexion.

image(5)

Yogurt- Antibacterial, Anti fungal and great for reducing blemishes. Contains Lactic acid for gentle exfoliation, for very soft skin!

image(4)

Directions:

Add all ingredients together to form a paste, spread over skin and leave for 15 minutes. Before rinsing the mask, gently moisten skin and rub softly for a manual exfoliation with the oats! Rinse completely

image(6)

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this mask! Not only did it smell and taste (yes I tasted it) amazing, It left my skin really, really soft. The oats were so gentle on my skin and left me very smooth. The combination of the Yogurt and honey worked wonders to increase my hydration. I will for sure be re-doing this home made delicious concoction! Thank you Habiba, xo

Jurlique Purely White, Love Balm, Eye Makeup Remover and Purifying Mask

jurlique11

Welcome to my collaboration post on many Jurlique products I have been testing out lately! If you are not familiar with Jurlique, you should be! They are an Australian Spa grade Skincare brand with bio dynamically grown ingredients! With scents and extracts that will remind you of a  walking through lush floral garden, Jurlique is a true skincare experience. Let’s begin…

Jurlique Purely White Moisturizers and Serum

The Jurlique Purely White Range of products are designed for people with concerns such as hyper pigmentation, dull complexion and premature aging. With key ingredients such as Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract and Hyaluronic acid the skin is infused with antioxidant and complexion brightening ingredients! I used the Purely Bright Serum, Day and Night moisturizer, for 3 weeks and noticed some great results!

image(2)

The Purely White Radiance serum was a light weight serum gel that absorbed into the skin in seconds. It made my skin very soft without any residue.

The Purely White day and night moisturizer were incredibly lightweight and left my skin hydrated but matte to the touch! Although recommended for All skin types, I feel they are better suited for a normal/combination or oily skin. The smell is a classic Jurlique floral scent with a slight undertone of licorice. The combined ingredients left my skin smooth and bright. I do not have any serious pigmentation problems so I cannot say I noticed a decrease in pigmentation, but my overall radiance was noticeable and my redness was diffused.

Key Ingredients in the Purely White Products :

Hyaluronic Acid- Improves hydration and gives a plump appearance to the skin.

Kakadu Plum Extract– helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation or any skin discolorations.

Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract– helps to inhibit melanin synthesis and fade existing pigmentation.

African Birch Extract– Antioxidant with skin firming qualities.

Vitamin C – Antioxidant known to help even skin tone.

Love Balm

image

The Jurlique Love Balm is one of those simple yet can’t live without products. A multipurpose balm that works wonders on chapped elbows, lips, hands and cuticles, or anywhere that needs a little TLC. I use the Love Balm mostly for my cuticles and lips, and is something I always have on hand… literally!

Key Ingredients in the Jurlique Love Balm:

Olive Oil, Safflower Seed Oil and Beeswax– Moisture and smoothing of the skin

Vitamin E and Soybean Oil–  Hydration and Antioxidant Protection

Bisabolol– Soothe the skin and help reduce redness or irritation

Jurlique Eye Makeup Remover

image(3)

The Jurlique Eye Makeup remover is a lotion based remover that is so gentle and effective at removing makeup. I really adore this Makeup remover as it easily removes my makeup without any residue or irritation to my skin or eyes. The lotion texture allows me to either massage into my skin and eyes with my finger tips, or remove using a cotton round. Although it is marketed as an eye makeup remover, I find this product equally as effective for my face makeup, as well! It deeply nourishes and protects my skin and instead of pulling on my skin as I usually do with other makeup removers, the Jurlique eye makeup remover is so effortless it practically melts off the makeup.

Key Ingredients in the Jurlique Eye Makeup Remover:

Jojoba Oil:  Protects and Hydrates skin

Sunflower Seed Oil: Deeply hydrating and smoothing

Dandelion and Calendula Extracts: Soothe irritation and protect fragile skin

Jurlique Purifying Mask

image(1)

The Jurlique Purifying mask is an awesome mask that helps to tighten pores, control oil and lift away impurities. This Clay based mask is great for those breakout prone times or when the skin is feeling congested. I noticed instantly a more refined and purified complexion, with even just one use of the mask! My pores were tighter and my skin felt clean!!! I used the mask 6 times and noticed that it really helped keep my complexion clear of blemishes. This mask also has a manual exfoliation property so it can act as your weekly exfoliant and mask, bonus!

Key Ingredients in the Purifying Mask:

Kaolin Clay: Purifies complexion and absorbs excess oil

Almond, Oats and Oat Bran: Gentle manual exfoliation

Vitamin E and C: Antioxidant skin brighteners

Chamomile Extract and Allantoin: Soothing, anti inflammatory as well as hydrating

Iwilla Remedy

iwillalogo

I am so happy to introduce a brand that until a few months ago was foreign to me, Iwilla Remedy!
Iwilla Remedy is a Natural wellness brand specializing in Deodorants, Lip Balm, Face & Body oil, tea and more!
I was sent two AMAZING products from the lwilla Remedy line; I love my armpits Deodorant in Baby Powder scent and My Skin Glows herbal face oil!

I Love my Armpits Deodorant in Baby Powder

baby-powder-tube

I will begin by saying that one of the most difficult products to switch when going Natural, is deodorant… At least for me. Reason? They typically do not work, either very well or at all! I have found only 3 deodorants thus far that have actually worked, and worked well! The Iwilla Remedy I love my armpits deodorant is one of them!
I applied the Baby Powder I love my armpits Deodorant once daily in the morning and had all day odor protection. I can also say it helped keep me dry! I smelled fresh and was totally confident with how well this deodorant worked. I absolutely love my armpits using this product. The Baby powder scent is not your typical ‘baby powder’ scent. It has a powdery undertone mixed with earthy notes; simply it smells great! This deodorant is one of a kind and again, it REALLY works!!! If you have not tried it I highly recommend you do! The I love my armpits deodorants come in a travel/sample size as well, great for trying it out if you are unsure and they come in a variety of different scents.
With ingredients that we all know and love, you can be at ease with this non toxic yet effective deodorant.

Ingredients Baby Powder Deodorant: Fractionated Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Arrow Root Powder, Brown Rice Flour, Sea Clay, Neem Seed Oil, Essential Oil Blend of Bergamot, Geranium and Ylang Ylang

My skin glows- Skin Spirit face oil

Skin_Spirit_Oil

The Skin spirit face oil is an herbal face oil for dehydrated and acne prone skin. Although my skin is not Acne prone, it is dehydrated and once a month, blemish prone. I absolutely adore face oils and this one is no different! I used this oil when I was breaking out and when my skin was acting its usual self! It helped to control my blemishes, smoothed and deeply hydrated my skin.

Apricot Kernel oil, Sweet Almond oil and Rose hip oil deeply nourish the skin. Neem seed oil provides anti bacterial/ anti fungal properties; Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils calm, balance and purify the complexion.

I adore the smell of this oil, it has a soft herbal/ medicinal scent. I used only a little more than a pea size for my entire face and found that it absorbed very nicely and I was able to wear it during the day, even under makeup! Although the Skin Spirit face oil says for Acne prone skin, I believe it can work for all skin types! It is a real treat to use and is a perfect everyday, simple, effective way to maintain the health and balance of your skin.

Ingredients Face Oil: Apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, rose hip seed oil, essential oil blend of helichrysum, ylang ylang, frankincense/myrrh, lavender, mandarin red and tea tree, neem seed oil, vitamin e.

Bailey Blush Beauty Blurb #9

Some ladies are blessed with fast growing, thick, strong hair… And then there are the rest of us! Here are some basic, tried and true tips to help you grow your most beautiful, healthy hair, as fast as possible!

hair

1. When washing your hair…massage your scalp! Healthy hair starts with the health of your scalp. With a simple massage over your scalp with the tips of your fingers, you will stimulate circulation and deep clean follicles. This step will aid in speedy hair growth and overall hair health.

2. Choose the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair and scalp type! Finding the right product will make all the difference, and of course shop natural/organic!

3. Massage the scalp with oil, pre wash. Coconut oil, peppermint oil and Rosemary oil to name a few; work wonders to stimulate healthy hair growth and nourish existing hair!

4. Color, Perm, Straighten, Curl etc less often or not at all. These chemical processes and heat, damage the hair more than is eluded. If you strive for long beautiful hair, work with what you have and leave the tinkering alone.

5. Brush your hair frequently, to distribute natural oils and stimulate scalp circulation.

6. Use a good leave in product for the ends of your hair! Argan oil is a great basic oil that is wonderful for hair and skin!

7. Eat more Salmon, Nuts, Yams and lean proteins. All these foods contain essential nutrients that hair loves!

8. Over all health will show in your skin and hair. Avoid extra stress, get 8hrs of sleep a night and exercise regularly.
