It is the beginning of December. Here in New York, we have had a drop in temperature and have seen a few snow falls. Like many, when the chilly months hit, my skin gets dried out. I especially feel it in my lips. Portland Bee Balm has been a crucial part of both my morning and night time skin care routines.
Portland Bee balm has an amazing texture. It is hydrating without being greasy or slippery. After applying the lip balm my lips feel healthy all day.
I love both the unscented and the mint scented balms. The unscented has a slightly nutty smell to it, but it’s hardly noticeable. The mint smells just like my favorite peppermint tea. A lot of people won’t use lip products with mint because of the cool, tingly feeling it can cause. This mint balm isn’t like that. It has just enough peppermint essential oil in it to give a nice sweet scent, but not enough to irritate the skin.
The ingredients are so simple and clean: bee’s wax, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, and peppermint oil in the mint balm. All of their ingredients are local to their headquarters in the NorthWestern United States.
Not only is the product incredible, but the packaging that it comes in is beautiful! The plastic tube is wrapped in a thin piece of wood with the Portland Bee Balm logo burned into it. It feels great to hold in your hands and to apply. It’s also wonderful to look at.
I’ve loved using both of these and would repurchase in a heartbeat. If I had to choose my favorite, I would have to go with the mint. But if mint isn’t your cuppa tea (pun intended?), the unscented is beautiful as well.

You can never go wrong with the high quality, luxe products from Vapour. The Mesmerize Eye Color does not fall short. Just like the rest of the brand, these sticks, creamy eyeshadows are made from organic and mineral ingredients and are just beautiful to use as well as have on display…
Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task…
Since graduating high school in 2014 I haven’t done much to further my education. Instead, I took the time to focus on my health and to work on healing. Its been almost four years since I finished school, so it feels like a good time to dip my toes back into the school scene. I decided to enroll in IIN or the Institute for Integrative Nutrition…
Finding affordable, organic skin care and makeup products is a rare thing. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a rare gem in regards to price and quality. Clay face masks are one of my favorites because you can really see where the oil and gunk are being pulled out. The Deep Sea Masque from Lauren Brooke comes as a powder to be mixed with any liquids of your choosing and is created with so many nourishing ingredients, it’s impossible to not be intrigued by it…
