Welcome to Day 2 of Spring Break Product Review Week! Since I am off this week, I decided to do this because I’ve been finding THE best products and I want to share them with you (and I actually have TIME-whoopie!)
Since I went organic, I’ve had challenges finding a good natural perfume. I tend to not like the overlly floral scents…I adore fresh, citrus scents however. I did review a line of perfectly natural fragrances here, if you want to check it out: Golden Earth Perfume
But today I am reviewing my absolute favorite perfume (so far.) Introducing…..
Essence of Vali…if that name sounds familiar, it’s because their sleep blend was recently featured in Goodebox. I fell in love with that so upon further exploration, decided to order the perfume.
I am on vacay this week! And I mean serious vacay- I already have my spa day planned for tomorrow! I wrote about my first spa day here: One Day in Maui. I’m getting a berry sugar scrub, get to do the wonderful Hana experience again (if you don’t know what this is, read my old post!) and get a Maui pedicure…I wonder if they’ll rub pineapples all over my feet?
Since I am on Spring Break, I decided to do something a bit different here on Toxic Beauty Blog. I want to make this the week of Spring product reviews! So each day I’ll post a new review of a product I’ve discovered that I think would be a great addition to your Spring beauty kit.
I’m a huge fan of body scrubs! I just love the thought of being able to rub a lovely smelling exfoliator on my skin to reveal the smooth, new skin beneath. Do you like salt or sugar scrubs best? Personally, I love a good sugar scrub because I love my sweets! Other times, I prefer salt for it’s detoxifying abilities. If you are more of a savory person, check out my salt scrub recipe here: homemade exfoliator.
Today I want to share this simple sugar scrub recipe that will make you want to lick your lips!
As a matter of fact, you can use it as a lip scrub too!
All you need are some simple ingredients you probably already have in your fridge or pantry.
How long have you been “green” with your beauty routine?
For me, it’s been about five years. It didn’t all happen at once, but it was a gradual switch for me. One of the last conventional products I said goodbye to (with a tear in my eye) was my eyeshadow. All the pretty colors and so vivid! Have you guessed the brand? Yes, MAC. And at $15 a pop, they don’t come cheap. I thought I would never find something comparable to the beautiful colors of MAC….until I did!
Many people think this way…that they can’t give up their conventional product because there will never be a natural counterpart that works as well or looks as good. Wrong! I am here today to prove this to you. Natural and organic beauty products not only can compare with conventional but can beat them by a long shot!
Hello beauties! Today I have a guest post for you detailing some of the best cosmetics from around the world. I must say I’ve only tried 1 out of the 5 brands mentioned (Yes to!- which at first I thought was a good brand but contains some unsavory ingredients!)…but their descriptions really make me want to try them all! Take a look and tell me which ones you’d like to try in the comments section.
Organic Cosmetics: The Best Worldwide
With more and more information surfacing about the amount of potentially harmful chemicals in cosmetics, many people are now opting to go green. Organic cosmetics sales have risen steeply in the last ten years and it is not surprising when you hear that common cosmetic ingredients are suspected of being carcinogenic, allergy causing and simply unhealthy for our bodies long term. Here are five organic cosmetics from around the world and why we think they are a great alternative to standard non-organic products.
