Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit that came in my Spring CAUSEBOX. As you all know, I adore lip products, so I had high hopes for this. [info in italics taken from the Three Ships website, and kit packaging]

Here’s a little bit of info about this Toronto based, Canadian brand:

We embrace this less is more mindset and use this philosophy to chart our course as a company. We believe you don’t need a long list of unnecessary ingredients in your skincare products, and you don’t need a 12 step skincare routine to achieve beautiful results.

[…]

Our goal was to solve the problems we faced as consumers and create the most effective and affordable natural skincare products available.

This is why every Three Ships product is made with 100% natural ingredients and is certified cruelty-free. It’s why nothing goes to market unless it has been scientifically proven to work. And it’s why all of our products will forever be under $40 USD.

The Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit is composed of the Vanilla Lip Exfoliator, and the Buttercream Hydrating Lip Mask. Let’s look at the Lip Exfoliator first:

This triple-action scrub exfoliates and conditions lips. Fine sugar crystals remove dry skin / flakes and make lips look plump and full while natural shea butter and oils hydrate and soothe. This scrub contains zero artificial colors and is naturally flavoured with vanilla.

This is a beautiful lip scrub, it mega exfoliates, but at the same time adds so much hydration. My lips are SO SMOOTH after I use this!

Now, let’s take a look at the Buttercream Hydrating Lip Mask:

Natural oils of sunflower, coconut and avocado deeply replenish moisture to dry lips. Use overnight for extra soft lips when you wake up.

As a lip balm addict, this lip mask is a DREAM! So hydrating. It can be used night and day!

The combination of the scrub and mask is the perfect recipe for achieving soft and smooth lips!

Unboxing & First Impressions – CAUSEBOX Spring 2021

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m sharing my unboxing and first impressions of my Spring 2021 CAUSEBOX. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen my unboxing, but here I share my first impressions, and total value of the subscription box. [info in italics taken from CAUSEBOX]

FIVE CORNERSTONES DEFINE EVERYTHING THAT WE DO AT CAUSEBOX. WE ARE: COMMUNITY FOCUSED, ETHICALLY MADE, ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS, FOR WOMEN, AND IMPACT DRIVEN. 

This quarter’s artwork was done by Charlotte Molas.

I have a basic subscription, so I don’t get to choose the items that I receive. But I like the element of surprise.

Now lets take a look at what I received:

Product 1 – FEED Projects Canvas Market Tote $108 USD

All subscribers received the tote, in one of three colours – glacial grey, coastal stripe or sea blue. I received glacial grey. I was excited about this reusable shopping bag, it is a great size, has loads of pockets, and is sturdy and well made. I will be using this for groceries / errands.

Product 2 – Palm + Perkins Set of 4 Upcycled Napkins $38 USD

For the second product, there were three possibilities: the Upcycled Napkins, a Nimble CHAMP Lite Portable Charger, or the DIFF Charitable Eyewear Finn Sea Tortoise Blue Light Glasses. I received the napkins – they’re made from upcycled cotton and plastic water bottles – they feel almost like a linen blend fabric, they’ll be well used in our house as I needed to replace a few of the cloth napkins that we’ve had in rotation.

I would have liked to receive the portable charger as well, this is something that I would definitely use. The blue light glasses, not so much, as I wear prescription glasses (with the blue light filter).

Product 3 – This Works Stress Check Sleep Spray $25 USD

For the third product, all subscribers received this aromatherapy bed spray. It smells really nice, and I will definitely put it to use.

Product 4 – Glass Ladder & Co Katherine Tech Organizer Roll $35

For the fourth product there were three possibilities: the Tech Organizer Roll, the Stojo Collapsible 16 oz cup, or Maji Sports Stretch & Exercise Bands. I received the Tech Organizer which I will definitely use, because I hate having all my chargers get tangled up, or misplaced.

I also would have liked to get either the travel cup or exercise bands, and would have used both.

Product 5 – Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit $30 USD

For the fifth product there there three possibilities: the Lip Kit, a PUR Lit Mist Illuminating Setting Spray, or a Province Apothecary Regenerating Exfoliator + Resurfacing Mask. I received the Lip Kit and as a lip balm addict, I couldn’t be more thrilled. It contains a lip scrub and a lip mask.

I also would not have minded getting either of the two alternates, but the Lip Kit was made for me!

Product 6 – Adesse New York Power Couple Nail Care Duo $36 USD

All subscribers received the nail care duo. It contains a Nail Growth Optimizer and a Cuticle Oil. Because of the past year of constant hand washing and hand sanitizer use, my nails need strengthening and hydration, so this is perfect for me.

The Spring 2021 box cost me $62.90 USD ($54.95 + shipping to Canada) which works out to $81.89 CAD based on the exchange rate that I paid ($1.3019), so the value of this box is $272 USD which works out to $354.12 CAD! The yearly subscription which you pay in full works out to be cheaper per box and you get customization choices, but I’m liking the element of surprise so far!

I’m super happy with everything that I received! All are things that I will use. My only complaint is that it takes forever for the boxes to ship out!

Reviews to follow for the Sleep Spray, Lip Kit and Nail Care Duo once I’ve had a chance to try them out!

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel that came in my Fall CAUSEBOX. [info in italics taken from the Aromatherapy Associates website]

Our best selling De-Stress Muscle Gel first cools inflamed muscles before imparting a deep, comforting warmth. Invigorating Black Pepper and warming Ginger are the perfect antidote to an intense workout, a demanding day, or in-flight heavy legs, leaving muscles soothed and relaxed.

Not only is this muscle gel great for sore muscles, it smells amazing with the black pepper, ginger, rosemary and lavender – much like the De-Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil which I have previously tried and absolutely loved!

You can also use it on the back of your neck or temples when you have a headache!

INGREDIENTS: Aqua (Water), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Water, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Water, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavendar) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Leucadendron Cajaputi (Cajput) Oil, Parfum**, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Leaf Oil, Juniperus Communis (Juniper) Fruit Oil, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil, Pinus Sylvestris (Pine) Leaf Oil, Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper) Seed Oil, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Citral*, Coumarin*, Geraniol*, Limonene*, Linalool*. *Natural Essential Oil Contents **Natural Plant Extracts

Alima Pure Natural Definition Eye Pencil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Alima Pure Natural Definition Eye Pencil that came in my March Petit Vour box. I finally got around to testing it out! [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

Alima Pure Natural Eye Pencil

A long lasting, highly pigmented natural eyeliner pencil. Natural Definition Eye Pencil is filled with soothing natural oils, waxes, and Chamomile extract to protect the delicate eye area. This eyeliner glides on smoothly, blends beautifully, and lasts all day.

Alima Pure Natural Eye Pencil

On the Petit Vour website it shows three shades: Coffee (rich cocoa brown), Ink (carbon black) and Patina (shimmering taupe). I received the shade Coffee thankfully as I have way too many black liners in my stash!

Its super pigmented, long wearing, and applies smoothly too! The Coffee shade is a gorgeous deep dark brown. Perfect for when you just don’t feel like wearing black liner!

Alima Pure Natural Eye Pencil

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Simmondsia Chinesis (Hydrogenated Jojoba) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Gossypium Herbaceum (Hydrogenated Cottonseed) Oil, Mangnifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Mica (CI 77019), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Cera, Glyceryl Caprylate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Cera, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate [+/- CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxide-Red), CI 77492 (Iron Oxide-Yellow), CI 77499 (Iron Oxide-Black)].

Inkling Scents Roll-On Perfume Review in Sultry

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Inkling Scents Roll-On Perfume in Sultry that came in my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Inkling Scents Sultry

Wearing this smooth fragrance is the art of seduction. The base is creamy sandalwood and white amber, the heart is lotus flower, orchid and Bulgarian rose, while the top is silky vanilla. The blend is provocative, but clean. This mix is deep and rich enough to leave you with a sense of pleasure.

This sounds like a perfect scent for me – a mix of woody / spicy and floral notes!

Inkling Scents Sultry

Perfume reviews are very subjective in my opinion. It is a combination of body chemistry and personal preference.

Sadly, this scent does not mix well with my body chemistry and pulls almost musky on me – the floral notes disappear completely! In the bottle it smells really pretty, so I might just use it to scent clothing, because it is quite lovely when not directly on my skin!

Inkling Scents Sultry

Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Sandalwood Essential Oil, White Amber Essential Oil, Lotus Flower Essential Oil, Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil, Vanilla Natural Isolate

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly Review

Hello, hello!

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly

Today I’m reviewing the Styling Jelly from MoMi Beauty that came in my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

This innovative jelly stays flexible and maintains movement, allowing easy styling and a no-frizz finish. Every hair type can achieve different textures using the jelly, which blends organic hydrating olive oil and clarifying apple cider vinegar with floral and gem-essences for inner and outer balance. 

  • Pump a small amount into palms
  • Evenly apply to damp or air-dried hair
  • Style as desired
  • To add volume and body to fine hair, apply to lengths from root to ends
  • For medium hold: scrunch into wet hair and diffuse with a blow dryer
  • For some extra hold to style: pump a small amount into palms and style as needed
  • To tame fly-aways: pump a small amount into palms and very lightly apply to smooth strands

MoMi Beauty Styling Jelly

I’ve been using this to add volume and tame frizz in my wavy hair. It feels hydrating yet lightweight. Mega waves! It kind of feels like a cross between a hair gel and a facial serum texture-wise. And the scent is very minimal (almost non-existent) to my nose! I really like it a lot!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Deionized Water, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Calendula Extract, Pro-Vitamin B5, Organic Guar Gum (Natural Plant Based), Organic Sweet Orange Oil, Organic Lemongrass Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (Raw unfiltered), Organic Green Tea, Organic Sage Herb, Organic Bilberry Leaf, Xanthan Gum (Natural Gum), Lotus Wei blend of organic essential oils of Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender), Anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile), Rosa damascena (Rose absolute), Citrus aurantium (Neroli absolute), Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) flower essence, gem essence of Rose Quartz, Leucidal (Radish root ferment).

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic from my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic

We make it easy to be good with this simple step in cleansing that requires no water and no rinsing. Fortified coconut, calendula and grapefruit waters, this powerful tonic helps capture and lift away dirt, oil and impurities without harsh rubbing or over-drying. For all skin types

First off, this smells very strongly of coconut, which I have an aversion to. It smells like bad suntan lotion to me – but if you like coconut scented products, then you will probably like this.

I only used this micellar water once because it triggered a reaction! The one rare occasion that I didn’t do a skin patch test first – my skin felt like it was burning and turned red! I immediately ran to wash it off with my most gentle cream cleanser and then put on a soothing facial moisturizer and managed to calm my skin down within about an hour.

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic

I don’t see any obvious sensitivity triggers for my skin in the ingredient list so I’m assuming that it is something in the “parfum (natural)” blend in the ingredients that is not specified. I’m not willing to test this on my face again. I’ve had no problems with any of their skincare that I’ve tried before, so I was quite surprised!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | aqua (purified), sorbitan oleate decylglucoside crosspolymer, decyl glucoside, glycerin, cocos nucifera (coconut) water, calendula officinalis (flower) extract, citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit water, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, parfum (natural).

Hello, hello!

My March Petit Vour box finally arrived on April 15th! I often show my Petit Vour box on my InstaGram, but here on the blog you will get the unboxing AND first impressions. Full reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test things out. [info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour March 2020

I have temporarily cancelled my Petit Vour subscription, so I will not be getting the April box. I plan on re-subscribing as soon as life returns to some state of normality.

Petit Vour March 2020

Petit Vour is a cruelty-free and vegan monthly subscription box with four (occasionally five) products. The subscription is $18 USD a month in the US, $23 USD for Canada, and $25 USD for the rest of the world. With the exchange rate @1.3804 my box cost me $31.75 CAD this month.

Let’s take a closer look:

Petit Vour March 2020

MO MI Beauty Styling Jelly (travel size 30ml $22 USD, full size 100ml $38 USD)

Every hair type can achieve different textures using the jelly, which blends organic hydrating olive oil and clarifying apple cider vinegar with floral and gem-essences for inner and outer balance.

Petit Vour March 2020

This sounds interesting, especially the no-frizz finish.

Alima Pure Natural Definition Eye Pencil (0.04oz / 1.14g $18 USD)

A long lasting, highly pigmented natural eyeliner pencil. Natural Definition Eye Pencil is filled with soothing natural oils, waxes, and Chamomile extract to protect the delicate eye area. This eyeliner glides on smoothly, blends beautifully, and lasts all day.

Petit Vour March 2020

Sigh. Another  eye liner. I have so many liners in my stash! Hopefully it is a good one. Thankfully it is in the shade Coffee (rich cocoa brown) and not Ink (carbon black) as I have SO MANY BLACK EYELINERS in my stash!

Inkling Scents Roll-On Perfume in Sultry (sample size 5ml $15 USD, full size 10ml $25 USD)

Wearing this smooth fragrance is the art of seduction. The base is creamy sandalwood and white amber, the heart is lotus flower, orchid and Bulgarian rose, while the top is silky vanilla. The blend is provocative, but clean. This mix is deep and rich enough to leave you with a sense of pleasure.

Petit Vour March 2020

Oooh, this sounds like a scent that I will love!

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic ( sample size 2 oz $5USD, full size 8oz / 236ml $12 USD)

Petit Vour March 2020

Hopefully this will be a nice micellar water. I don’t like the ones that are soapy or leave a filmy feeling on the skin.

The March box is valued at $60 USD, which works out to be $82.82 CAD! I’m most excited by the Mo Mi Beauty Styling Jelly and the Inkling Scents Sultry Perfume!
