Say ‘hi’ to hydration

Hyaluronic acid is a must-have in your skin routine. The primary function of hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep your skin hydrated at all times, so you can think about it as a BIG drink of water for your tissues. This is the holy grail for supple, youthful skin.

Lightweight and suitable for all skin types, our Hyaluronic Acid formula alleviates dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeding up wound healing. It improves skin elasticity, making your skin appear dewier and brighter.

Always Vegan, Cruelty-Free, and Paraben-Free.

grace & stella hyaluronic acid serum

grace & stella is a Canadian company that is Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free – so I was super excited to try something from this new to me brand!

I love facial serums, especially ones that are hyaluronic acid based as they give an extra boost of hydration. This one is light and quickly absorbs into my skin. I love that it has a pump. I’ve even used it mixed in with my foundation to make it a little more hydrating.

Wyld Skincare French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I have a review of the Wyld Skincare French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge that I got recently in my summer intro box 3 from CAUSEBOX  [info in italics taken from the Wyld Skincare website]

Wyld Skincare 1

Gentle exfoliating sponge made from 100% natural Konjac plant. Infused with ultra-soothing French pink clay to purify pores without drying your skin. Nourishing vitamins and minerals help brighten complexion and promote healthy skin. Leaves skin soft and dewy after every use.

Wyld Skincare 2

  • French pink clay gently removes dirt, oil, makeup and build-up in pores
  • Contains natural calming properties to soothe and nourish skin
  • Removes dead skin without stripping healthy oils
  • Infuses pores with rich minerals and vitamins (A, E, D, B1, B2, B6, B12, and C)

Wyld Skincare 3

This is a super gentle way to exfoliate my skin. I love that it is just the Konjac sponge and pink clay – that’s it – nothing else! It can be used by itself with water, or with the facial cleanser of your choice. And it comes with a little string loop so it can be hung to dry between uses – which is a nice touch!

Wyld Skincare 4

Have you tried using a Konjac sponge before?

CAUSEBOX Summer Intro Box 3 – Unboxing & First Impressions

Hello, hello! Welcome to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m sharing my unboxing and first impressions of my first ever CAUSEBOX – the Summer Intro Box 3. It is a quarterly seasonal subscription. [info in italics taken from the CAUSEBOX website]

CauseBox Summer 1

Five cornerstones define everything that we do at CAUSEBOX. We are: community focused, ethically made, environmentally conscious, for women, and impact driven. 

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3

Let’s take a look at what is inside:

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3

I ordered the Summer Intro Box because I really wanted the Zoe Crossbody Bag from Pixie Mood – I received it in Sage. It is a gorgeous bag, and photos just don’t do the colour justice! It is a beautifully constructed vegan leather handbag, and the interior lining is made from recycled plastic bottles.

CauseBox Summer 10

The next item is the 10-Piece Makeup Brush Collection from La Beauté Soi. These brushes are cruelty free. And I love the brush roll – great for travel! (Review to follow once I’ve tried them out)

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3 - La Beauté Soi Makeup Brush Collection

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3 - La Beauté Soi Makeup Brush Collection

The next item is a set of 6 silicone stretch lids from Altcooking Hub. I’m actually really happy about getting them, as we were talking about buying a set.

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3 - Altcooking Hub 6 Silicone Stretch Lids

The next item is skincare – yay! The Grace & Stella Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Super happy to get a facial serum, especially from a brand that I’ve never tried before! (review to follow once I’ve tested it out)

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3 - Grace & Stella Hyaluronic Acid Serum

The final item is another skincare product – yay! Wyld French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge. I’m always happy to get skincare. (review to follow, once I’ve tried it out)

CAUSEBOX SUMMER INTRO BOX 3 - Wyld French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge

It cost me $32.90 USD for the Summer Intro Box which with the exchange rate of 1.3784 worked out to be $45.35 CAD so the value of this box is $148 USD which works out to $204 CAD!

The regular quarterly subscription is $54.95 USD plus $7.95 for shipping to Canada. The yearly subscription is cheaper, but I didn’t want to commit to a year just yet.

Have you tried CAUSEBOX? So far I like it!

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the Indeed Labs Canada Retinol Reface that I purchased for myself a few weeks ago. [info in italics taken from the Indeed Labs Canada website]

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface 1

retinol reface™ is a 3-in-1 formula combining retinol, bakuchiol, and a retinol-like peptide to help deliver softer, smoother, and visibly younger-looking skin. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, and bakuchiol are considered to be two of the most effective ingredients in helping those with aging concerns. This super-concentrated night cream quickly and effectively targets signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while minimizing redness. Additionally, it enhances skin tone, hydration, elasticity, firmness, radiance, and brightness. retinol reface™ is gentle enough to use on all skin types.

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface 2

Benefits

  • Reduces visible signs of skin aging
  • Improves skin texture and can be used by acne-prone skin
  • Delivers softer, smoother looking skin
  • Formulated with retinol microspheres to minimize sensitivity

This is a surprisingly gentle retinol formulation – a great “starter” if you are new to using retinoid based skincare, or if you have sensitive skin like me.

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface 3

If you are new to retinol, try using it every couple of days to let your skin adjust. And don’t forget to always wear SPF in the daytime, as retinoids make the skin more sensitive to sun exposure – and well, you should be wearing it anyway!

It does help improve my skin texture, and smooths things out, and it helps with fine lines and wrinkles. Price-wise, it is quite budget friendly at less than $20 CAD!

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface 4

Have you tried this one? Do you have a favourite retinol product?

BeOnMe Face Cream Sensitive Skin Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have the third part of a three part series of sponsored posts of the newly launched organic skincare line from Italy called BeOnMe – this brand has three main lines – Beauty (face, body, hair), Tattoo, and Sport – all of which are certified-organic, and they are vegan, cruelty-free, with recyclable packaging. They are carried by Pure Stem Beauty / Organic Beauty is Easy [info in italics taken from the Organic Beauty is Easy website]

BeOnMe1

Organic Beauty is Easy is the main retail site for Pure Stem Beauty.

PureStem Beauty’s mission statement is – WE ARE ON A MISSION TO BE MORE THAN A MISSION AND WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO JOIN US.

We believe that everything that we put in and on your bodies must be nutritious and safe.

We are not only distributors of eco-luxe products, we are also business owners who believe in having products that are both safe for the customer as well as safe for our staff who are constantly in contact with the products.

PureStem Beauty is continually searching for the safest beauty products available that are renowned for their proficiency. They hand pick only the best skin care and hair care products while partnering with ethically minded brands that share the same or similar ethos. They do this not only because they want to provide you with the safest products but also because they own and manage one of Canada’s leading organic spa. They firmly believe in using and distributing products that are environmentally safe, sustainable, and non-toxic.

BeOnMe

BeOnMe arose out of a desire to create and a creative instinct that came from our quest to provide people with the pure, natural and organic cosmetics they need and want—cosmetics that are free from synthetics, allergens, and components of animal origin.

BeOnMe Face Cream 1

The BeOnMe Beauty Line has skincare for various skin-types: oily, combination, dry, sensitive, reactive, and first wrinkles.  Today I’m reviewing the Face Cream Sensitive Skin from the BeOnMe Beauty Line. This face cream can be used on all skin types except for oily and combination – they have another face cream recommended for those skin types.

BeOnMe Face Cream 2

BeOnMe FACE CREAM SENSITIVE SKIN is a special blend of natural, organic ingredients selected to hydrate and nourish your skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Special ingredients such as organic aloe gel and hyaluronic acid, known for their extraordinary ability to improve the elasticity of the skin, ensure long-lasting hydration and invigoration for the skin of your face and neck. Organic Helichrysum italicum hydrosol has astringent properties, while organic damask rose hydrosol reduces the appearance of the signs of skin ageing, refreshes your skin and relieves redness due to dryness. The protective and revitalizing blend of organic shea butter and oil, such as organic sunflower oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), and organic olive oil, provide intense nourishment and makes your skin look visibly energized while respecting its natural equilibrium.

This is a gorgeous facial cream – on par with many luxury brands in terms of the quality. It is hydrating and soothing, but doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. And, it plays nicely with tinted sunscreen, concealer and foundation!

BeOnMe Face Cream Sensitive Skin

Key ingredients include: aloe gel and hyaluronic acid for hydration and healing, helichrysum hydrosol for circulation, and anti-inflammatory properties, damask rose hydrosol for anti-aging, anti-redness properties, and a blend of shea butter, sunflower oil, vitamin E, and olive oil for anti-oxidant and nourishing properties.

I love skincare with rose based ingredients – it works well for my sensitive skin that is quite often prone to mild redness.

The scent is very mild, and does not trigger any reaction for me – but as always, if you have sensitive skin, or ingredient sensitivities, ALWAYS do a patch test before using!

BeOnMe Face Cream 4

Ingredients: AQUA (WATER), ALOE BARBADENSIS GEL* (ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE*), GLYCERIN, SUNFLOWER SEED OIL GLYCERIDES* (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL GLYCERIDES*), CETYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE SE, ROSA DAMASCENA FLOWER WATER*, SODIUM CETEARYL SULFATE, COCOGLYCERIDES, GLYCERYL STEARATE, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII BUTTER * (BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER*), DICAPRYLYL CARBONATE, HELICHRYSUM ITALICUM FLOWER WATER*, BENZYL ALCOHOL, BETAINE, COCO-CAPRYLATE/CAPRATE, OLEA EUROPAEA OIL* (OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL*), DICAPRYLYL ETHER, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), CETEARYL ALCOHOL, XANTHAN GUM, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, TOCOPHEROL, SODIUM PHYTATE, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS SEED OIL (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL), GERANIOL, LINALOOL, LIMONENE * Ingredients from organic farming. 98% of the total ingredients are from natural origin, 20% are from organic farming

BeOnMe

The BeOnMe Beauty Line has skincare for various skin-types: oily, combination, dry, sensitive, reactive, and first wrinkles. Today I’m reviewing the Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid from their Beauty range. According to their skincare routine chart, this serum is targeted for all skin types except for oily, and reactive – they have other serums for those skin types.

BeOnMe Face Serum 1

BeOnMe FACE SERUM is a combination of natural, organic ingredients designed to hydrate and nourish your skin without being heavy. With a light texture, it absorbs rapidly and is ideal for warm weather in place of facial cream or as a foundation for makeup. BeOnMe FACE SERUM features organic thyme extract, organic lavender hydrosol, and organic cornflower: this blend provides a purifying and astringent action, relieves redness thanks to its moisturizing properties, and reduce the look of dark circles under the eyes. Organic aloe gel and hyaluronic acid have an extraordinary capacity to protect the skin’s moisture barrier. The revitalizing combination of organic goji extract, organic macadamia oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), and olive oil nourishes the skin and improves its elasticity. These ingredients are often used in treatments to reduce skin imperfections.

BeOnMe Face Serum Hyaluronic Acid

Facial serums are one of my favourite skincare products. This is a lightweight serum that can also be used as an eye cream (gotta love multi-purpose products). It helps to tame redness, and adds a nice level of hydration to my skin without feeling heavy or sticky.

BeOnMe Face Serum 3

It works great as a lightweight hydrator, and can be used as a makeup primer. It plays nicely with the two tinted SPFs that I’ve tested it with, and concealer. Texture-wise, it is somewhere between an emulsion and a cream – not too runny, and not too thick.

Key ingredients are thyme extract, lavender hydrosol, and cornflower hydrosol – these are soothing, and redness reducing; hyaluronic acid and aloe gel add the hydration, and healing, and goji extract, macadamia and olive oils, and vitamin E add the anti-oxidant content.

There is fragrance / parfum listed in the ingredients, but it is very very mild, almost no scent at all and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. But if you are sensitive to certain ingredients or fragrances – always do a patch test!

BeOnMe Face Serum 4

Ingredients: AQUA (WATER), THYMUS VULGARIS EXTRACT* (THYMUS VULGARIS (THYME) FLOWER/LEAF EXTRACT*), GLYCERIN, ALOE BARBADENSIS GEL* (ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE*), DICAPRYLYL ETHER, LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA WATER*, OLEA EUROPAEA FRUIT OIL (OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL), CETEARYL OLIVATE, COCO-CAPRYLATE/CAPRATE, CENTAUREA CYANUS WATER* (CENTAUREA CYANUS FLOWER WATER*), SORBITAN OLIVATE, HYDROGENATED OLIVE OIL, MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE, BEHENYL ALCOHOL, BENZYL ALCOHOL, DIPALMITOYL HYDROXYPROLINE, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), TOCOPHEROL, XANTHAN GUM, SODIUM HYALURONATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, OLEA EUROPAEA OIL UNSAPONIFIABLES (OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) OIL UNSAPONIFIABLES), HELIANTHUS ANNUUS SEED OIL (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL), MACADAMIA TERNIFOLIA SEED OIL*, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM PHYTATE, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, LYCIUM BARBARUM FRUIT EXTRACT*, GERANIOL, LINALOOL, LIMONENE * Ingredients from organic farming. 98% of the total ingredients are from natural origin, 20% are from organic farming

BeOnMe3

The BeOnMe Beauty Line has skincare for various skin-types: oily, combination, dry, sensitive, reactive, and first wrinkles. Today I’m reviewing the Cleansing Mousse:

Used twice daily (morning and evening), BeOnMe CLEANSING MOUSSE delicately cleanses face and neck from impurities. This soft foam is ideal for removing oil-based makeup residue and other pollutants and impurities accumulated throughout the day, or for cleansing oily skin. BeOnMe CLEANSING MOUSSE is fragrance-free, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. Organic aloe vera moisturizing properties provide the skin with a relieving, balancing effect. Known for its high content of linoleic acid, oat oil enhances the skin’s natural protective properties, while tocopherols and tocotrienols help the skin to improve its elasticity and are suited as cleansers also for thinner or more mature skin types. The deep, yet delicate cleansing properties prepare the skin for subsequent moisturizing treatments.

BeOnMe4

This foaming cleanser is formulated to work with all skintypes – and it is SO GENTLE, and SO EFFECTIVE – it removes sunscreen and makeup really well – even eyeshadow without leaving my skin feeling dry or irritated. It doesn’t burn the eyes – which is a huge plus! It does have a little trouble with my mega waterproof mascara which usually needs a cleansing oil to fully break it down and remove all traces.

BeOnMe Cleansing Mousse

I love that it is fragrance free, because with all of the sunscreen and daily mask wearing, my skin is a little more sensitive than usual, so I need products that will soothe my skin.

The packaging is recyclable, and the pump causes the cleanser to foam, so you don’t actually need to shake up the bottle before using it. Price-wise, the Cleansing Mousse is $26.95 CAD for 150ml / 5.07 fl. oz.

BeOnMe Cleansing Mousse

Ingredients: AQUA (WATER), ALOE BARBADENSIS GEL* (ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE*), AMMONIUM LAURYL SULFATE, GLYCERIN, CAPRYLYL/CAPRYL GLUCOSIDE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, LAURYL GLUCOSIDE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, SALICYLIC ACID, SODIUM PHYTATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, SORBIC ACID, AVENA SATIVA KERNEL OIL (AVENA SATIVA (OAT) KERNEL OIL) * Ingredients from organic farming 98% natural origin of total. 20% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.

Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30. I purchased this awhile back from well.ca and have been using it for several weeks. [info in italics taken from the Sun Bum website]

Sun Bum 4

Some of us like to go as au naturel as possible, so we’re really proud to introduce our new zinc-based Mineral collection for your lounging and earth loving pleasure. Lightweight, silky, SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion glides on like butter and provides a chemical free sunscreen and primer with a matte finish.

Sun Bum 5

The first time I applied this zinc-based mineral sunscreen, I almost threw it out – it goes on so buttery (and not in a good feeling way, but in a greasy feeling way) – BUT wait – it actually sets to a semi-matte finish that feels very light. The tint is minimal – basically just enough to eliminate the white cast effect that often comes with zinc-based sunscreens. The coverage is light, and basically just evens out my skin. I’ve worn it on its own, with concealer, and with powder and it works well each way. I haven’t tried it with full foundation as I don’t wear foundation in the summer time, but based on how it plays with concealer and powder, I think that it would work well if that’s your thing.

Sun Bum 3

Tint-wise it works well for my fair to light skin tone. I’m not sure how well this would work for medium skin tones, and am doubtful this work work for darker skin tones – I think that there should be several skin tone options – having just one shade is pathetic!

Sun Bum 6

Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 5.3%, Zinc Oxide 2.4%, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isopropyl Myristate, Polyamide-5, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Polysilicone-11, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Plankton Extract, Glycerin, Mica, Iron Oxides, Propylene Carbonate, Synthetic Wax, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Isopropyl Titianium Triisostearate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Silica Silylate.

Eco by Sonia Driver Super Citrus Cleanser Review

Hello, hello!

After a brief hiatus, I am back with some new reviews for you. Today I have a review of the Eco by Sonia Driver Super Citrus Cleanser. I received this as a part of my judging package for the CertClean Annual Beauty Awards. I wanted to hold off on reviewing this gel based cleanser until after judging was completed – this was one of my top three cleansers from my judging package [info in italics taken from the Eco Tan / Eco by Sonia Driver website]

Eco by Sonya Driver Super Citrus Cleanser

It is also works great as a second step after oil cleansing!
