Graydon Face + Body Travel Essentials | Review + Giveaway!

Graydon Face + Body Travel Essentials | Review + Giveaway!

Graydon Skin Care is a Canadian brand great for label readers like me. The ingredients are natural, nontoxic, cruelty-free, chemical and synthetic free, and organic whenever possible. Each product is made with luxury and pampering in mind. Both the packaging and the product inside are beautiful to use as well as display on your shelves or countertops. These face and body travel essential samples are nothing short of lovely.

Aloe Milk Cleanser

Most of the time I prefer soapless facial cleansers like oils, creams or balms. This Aloe Milk Cleanser is a cream cleanser and makeup remover all in one. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, clean and hydrated.

Elements

This sunscreen is made from zinc rather than chemicals. Not only is your skin protected from the sun’s hot rays, Seabuckthorn oil and aloe juice help to nourish your skin as well. The formula is a slightly thick one. It works well on the body, but it’s not something I would want to wear on my face in the hot weather.

All Over Face + Body Lotion

This lotion smells of lavender and rosemary. Yum! It is very moisturizing, yet light weight. It works well as both a body lotion and a face lotion. I’ve noticed as a face lotion it has a slightly dewy finish. If I were to wear makeup over time I might use a couple extra mattifying products to keep foundation/concealer in place.

All Over Soap + Shampoo

I decided to try this out as a shampoo. It doesn’t suds up quite as much as I’d like and it leaves almost a waxy feeling when rinsing it out, but when my hair dries it feels really clean, healthy and a bit thicker. I haven’t tried it as a body or face soap yet, but I think it is gentle enough so your skin won’t feel stripped and tight.

Hair Smoothie

This conditioner can be used as a mask, regular conditioner as well as a leave-in conditioner for dry ends. I’ve only tried it as a regular in shower conditioner. It doesn’t feel as creamy as I’d prefer but it detangles really well. After I’ve rinsed it out, my hair feels really soft and manageable.

Each of these 5 products is wonderfully made and very effective. These are ones that I would go for in full size. I would love to share how awesome this brand it with you. If you are interested, feel free to fill out the form below to enter for an opportunity to win this little sample kit of these Graydon products.

Acure Organics Sensitive Facial Cleanser | Review

Acure Organics Sensitive Facial Cleanser | Review

Acure Organics is a great brand to find USDA organic, vegan, sulfate free, paraben free, and cruelty-free body care products for the whole family. They have many ranges for different skin types. From babies to acne prone skin all the way up to aging skin. My skin is hard to figure out. One day it can be oily and spotty, and the next day it could be tight and flaky. I decided to give this Sensitive Facal Cleanser a try.

It’s a gentle cream cleanser for dry and sensitive skin. With oils like argan and coconut, it hydrates while it cleanses. Several fruit and flower extracts help to calm the skin. A gentle lather is created when massaged into damp skin.

I didn’t see any improvement in my acne, but after each use, my skin felt soft, hydrated, and clean. I was glad to find my skin wasn’t made to feel stripped, tight of dry like many sudsy cleansers do.

I look forward to learning more about the many products Acure Organics has to offer. What would you recommend I try next?

Mineral Fusion Confetti Nail Trio | Review

Mineral Fusion Confetti Nail Trio | Review

Mineral Fusion is a great brand for healthy beauty. Not only are they healthy, they are also cruelty-free, and give back to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. So all around, choosing Mineral Fusion is good for many.

You can find just about any beauty products you could need ranging from makeup to body, skin, and hair care, to nail polish. Because of my obsession with nail polish, I decided to introduce myself to Mineral fusions with this nail trio.

“Throw kindness around like confetti”

I great quote to live by. It also is fitting for this trio because Mineral Fusion has named this the “Confetti Nail Kit”.

From left to right:

“Shimmering Shale”, a pink glitter top coat. This is a great glitter not only because it’s so pretty, it also stays put! With a few coats, you can easily build up opacity without causing all of the flecks of glitter to go slipping and sliding all over the place.

“Dazzling Diamonds”, a sheer white with holographic pink shimmer. I’m not a fan of sheer polishes but this would go great as an interesting effect to layer over more opaque colors.

“Berried Gem”, a semi-sheer, shimmery berry pink. Two or three coats will make this beautiful, sparkly pink opaque.

3 Coats

4 Coats

These three shades are so beautiful and are joined on Mineral Fusion’s website by so many other shades just as beautiful. They are all vegan, and 5 free (Formaldehyde, Camphor, TPHP, DBP, Toluene).

Bottega Organica Skin Care | Review

Bottega Organica Skin Care | Review

Bottega Organica is a natural, chemical free skin care brand. The ingredients go straight from their farms in Italy and Upstate New York into the bottle. They offer this wonderful little sample pack for just the cost of shipping. Included in it are an eye serum, cleansing oil, facial oil, facial moisturizer, and a hand cream.

Eye Contour Serum

The texture of this serum is very interesting as far as eye products go. It is very liquidy. I would describe it as watery rather than oily. It has a bit of a learning curve if you are used to creams. It has a faint honey-like scent and is a light brown color.

 

Cleansing Face Oil

This reminds me a lot of Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Acne Cleansing Oil. It has the same lemon-thyme scent and moisturizing texture. It feels and smells wonderful on my face!

 

Morning Face Oil

Just a couple of drops of this ginger-scented oil goes a long way. It is incredibly moisturizing and smells wonderful. I wouldn’t, however, use it under makeup. It’s a very oily oil. I enjoy using it on relaxing, no-makeup days.

 

Extra-Nourishing Face Formula

This oil based face cream is incredibly hydrating. It’s not something I would use under makeup. But applying this in combination with the Morning Face Oil smells wonderful. The ginger and vanilla scents go together very well!

 

Comfort Hand Balm

During the dry, colder months powerful hand moisturizers are always great to have on hand (ha). This hand balm is just that. It’s oil based but absorbs into the skin quickly and effectively. According to Bottega Organica’s website, this balm is supposed to be orange scented. To me, it only has a gentle olive oil scent, but it doesn’t linger.

 

All of these products are a liquidy formula. The eye serum is a watery consistency and the rest are oil based. I wouldn’t use any of these under makeup. For someone with oily skin, I think these will work but I’d be careful with the amount I apply. For dry skin, these oils will be loved by your skin! I have combination skin and my dry, flaky patches drink the oils right up.

 

Have you tried any products from Bottega Organica? What are your favorites?

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lips | Review

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lips | Review

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques offers many wonderful, natural, and organic beauty products. These two lip options are nothing short of just that.

(Read my reviews on their foundationeye makeup, and cleanser.)

For me, neutral pink lip colors are my go to lip colors. They are easy to wear, aren’t too bold and have sweet, famine tint to them. This lipstick in the shade Peluche is just that. It is neutral with a slight red-pink shade. On my light skin, it works especially well as a Fall/Winter nude.

Its demi-matte finish is comfortable and moisturizing. It has an average wear time. It does wear away when eating or drinking but I think comfort can be taken in the fact that Lauren Brook makes all of their products from harmless, natural and organic ingredients. Unlike many other lipsticks, you don’t have to worry about ingesting a whole array of illegible synthetic ingredients. EWG scores it a beautiful 1 out of 10.

I don’t often reach for lip glosses, but on occasion, when I’d like a pretty, subtle color and something with a touch of hydration on the lips, a gloss is good to have on hand. And better yet a gloss that has been rated a 2 by EWG.

This purple shade, Candied Plum, isn’t as loud as it looks. It provides a very pretty magenta wash with a hint of micro-shimmer.

One feature across the whole brand that really stands out to me is the ability to order any product in a sample size (like the lipgloss I have pictured above). It can be a little scary ordering makeup online. The sample sizes are a wonderful idea to get a feel for the color and formulation of each product!

These products are comfortable, quality and also healthier options.

Do you have any favorites from Lauren Brooke? Where are your favorite lippies found? Let me know in the comments!

Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy | Review

Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy | Review

Deborah Lippmann is a brand loved by many. I know a lot of you are quite partial to their nail polishes. They have many beautiful shades available, and they are a healthier option to reach for.

The shade that I have pictured above is called She Drives Me Crazy. It is a very pretty teal color. Two coats are all you need to make it opaque.

Unfortunately, a lot of Deborah Lippmann’s other products don’t fare too well with EWG’s rating system but they scored this nail polish at a 2. That makes me pretty happy!

Do you use Deborah Lippmann nail polishes? What is your go-to color?

Juice Beauty Refining Organic Finishing Powder | Review

Juice Beauty Refining Organic Finishing Powder | Review

JuiceBeauty.com

Cakey skin is not fun. Almost every powder I’ve tried has caused my face to look like that. Juice Beauty’s Refining Finishing Powder does not look cakey or scaly at all.

After applying foundation and/or concealer I like to use a big fluffy brush like Real Techniques Blush Brush to dust the finishing powder over my skin. It helps set my makeup and keep it in place for the day. Because this is a finishing powder, there is not any coverage to speak of. Since it is also mattifying, it could be worn on bare skin to reduce any shiny spots.

Most of the ingredients are certified organic. They are plant-derived with many benefits such as antiaging and antibacterial. EWG Skin Deep Database rates it at a 2 out of 10 (10 being toxic).

I really like this powder and would repurchase it. It works really well for my wacky, spotty, oily yet dry and flaky at the same time skin.

Do you have any must-have products from Juice beauty? I would love to try more of their products. Please share your favorites in the comments!

Bella Mari Blemish Concealer Stick | Review

Bella Mari Blemish Concealer Stick | Review

Rather than doing a full foundation routine, I feel more comfortable dabbing a bit of concealer on my spots and panda eyes. Plus it’s a lot simpler to do. One of my first priorities when detoxing my products was to find a good, inexpensive, organic concealer. And here she is! Bella Mari Blemish Concealer.

At a drugstore price, it feels like a high-end product. It conceals redness as well as darkness. The texture is thick, and creamy, yet very blendable. It works into the skin with ease and rarely gets cakey. I find it easiest to blend with my fingertips. From the slightly dewy, creamy finish a light dusting of powder helps to set it and keep it in place for the day. The compact packaging makes it great for small storage space as well as being travel or purse friendly.

The ingredients are in fact organic and wildcraft and score a lovely 1 from EWG. With several antibacterial essential oils, it is made to help heal acne spots while hiding them for the day.

I am glad I stumbled upon this in an Amazon search! When I run out I expect I will be repurchasing it.

Have you found any organic concealers that are to die for? Please tell me about them in the comments!

Andalou Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating Peel | Review

Andalou Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating Peel | Review

Face masks are always a fun way to pamper your skin. I really like using masks from which you can see the results immediately. You can see when clay masks draw out oils. With peel off masks, you can see the gunk that has been pulled out of your pores. When I saw this Kombucha Peel from Andalou Naturals I was very intrigued.

I believe in the be benefits of probiotics. Kombucha is a great probiotic rich drink. When I saw the name of this mask I was very curious about the probiotic factor. I haven’t been able to find much information from Andalou about the reasons behind using kombucha in this mask. Probiotic skincare still sounds really intriguing!

The main focus of the ingredients in this mask are the fruit enzynmes. They are there to dissolve and gently exfoliate dead skin cells and any other gunk in your pores.

It truly is a gentle mask. It is a gel like texture. You apply it, let it dry, then wash it away. It is clear, very light weight and flexible. It’s nothing like a clay mask or a peel off mask. (So in other words, it’s not any fun.)  I imagine this would be great for someone with really sensitive skin. I personly prefer something a bit more rugged. Something that provides grossly satisfying results, and that’s fun to use.

Since I don’t feel excited to use this kombucha mask, I don’t reach for it very often. I imagine, to see real results I’d have to use it frequantly. Because I only reach for it every so often I haven’t seen any improvement in my skin. Although, after removing it each time my skin does feel very soft. So it must be doing its job. You just have to keep up with it.

This gentle exfoliating mask is from the same “Clear Skin” range as the mattifying moisturizer I posted about recently.

I feel sort of neutral about this one. I didn’t love it but I didn’t dislike it. Let me put it this way: I don’t feel like I won’t survive when I run out. I look forward to trying a new mask, but I also would like to try other products from this range.

What kind of face masks do you like? What are your favorites, or do you make your own?

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara | Review

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara | Review

For several years I have been hearing all over the internet how amazing Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is. I have been tempted many times to fork over the $23 for the lengthening effect this mascara provides, but I held myself back. I knew that I would hardly use it because it is not a waterproof mascara. When I saw Kandee Johnson’s promo video for the new waterproof formula I could physically feel the excitement in the pit of my stomach. I knew I had to try it! By some miracle, I received a sample in a subscription box.

Since I haven’t used the original formula I can’t compare the two. But I can say that I’ve enjoyed the waterproof just about as much as everyone said they enjoyed the original. It gives my lashes incredible length and volume. It is buildable and does not get too clumpy. My one complaint is that it’s not quite as waterproof or smudge proof as I’d like. It smudges just a bit (as do many other mascaras on me). I would, however, definitely buy this in a full size! I really like it, and for me, smudging is just part of my day when I wear mascara, regardless.

Another reason for my liking this mascara so much is because it scores a 2 from EWG’s Skin Deep database! It’s not very often that a mainstream, trendy beauty product is low in unhealthy ingredients.

If you like shopping online as much as I do, don’t forget to shop using Ebates to receive cash back. (At the time of writing) you can receive 3% cash back shopping at Too Faced through Ebates.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

I am really happy with the way my lashes look using Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. A score of a 2 from EWG makes me very happy! If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. It’s great!

Do you prefer regular or waterproof mascaras? What are some of your favorites? I’d love to learn what you like in the comments!

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good makes wonderful, organic, and natural skin care products. Their products are high quality, effective and safe.

All Good’s Lip Balms are very buttery and hydrating. When applied, it melts right into the skin, getting to work quickly to moisturize dry lips. The two pictured are Original and Spearmint. Both are great, and there are other scents and even tints available.

Coconut Oil Skin Food is versatile and very handy. I’ve used it as a moisturizer, a carrier oil for essential oils, and even an oil cleanser. I really like the few scent options All Good has available. The two I have pictured are plain coconut as well as lemongrass. Lavender is also available. The lemongrass scent is very sweet. For comparison, it is sweeter that Young Living’s lemongrass essential oil.

Progressing through the drier, winter months my skin feels tight and dehydrated. Body lotions are a must have for this time of year. The body lotion from All Good is so creamy and moisturizing. The scents coconut, lavender, and lemongrass are all wonderful. But my favorite is the lavender. It is so sweet and flowery.

Sunscreen is always important to have on hand. This sport sunscreen is a great non-toxic choice. I am going to remember this for when the summer hits and I spend more time in the hot rays.

All Good products are just that…all good. I loved every single one that I tried. I plan to repurchase the body lotion in the lavender scent first. That was my favorite.

Are you familiar with the All Good brand? Do you have any favorites? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

Shikai Natural Everyday Shampoo & Conditioner | Review

Shikai Natural Everyday Shampoo & Conditioner | Review

When I was little, my mom used Shikai shampoo and conditioner a lot. These bottles were a common occupant of the ledge in our shower. I’d forgotten all about it, so when I opened and smelled these two bottles, all the memories of stealing her shampoo every so often came back. I love the smell but it’s hard to describe; sort of herbally and clean.

Shikai Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner works well for just that, everyday use. I prefer to shampoo my hair every other day, rather than every day. In the long run, doing it that way make my hair feel healthier, but these two couldn’t keep my hair clean for more than a day. When using the shampoo and conditioner every day my hair felt soft and clean…for the day of course.

The EWG Skin Deep rating is okay but could be better. They both score a 4 (1 being safe, 10 being unhealthy).

Do you have any favorite Shikai Products? Please share in the comments!
