Crüe Cosmetics Fast Growth Treatment Bundle – Neptüne Hydrating Oil Review

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

Today I’m reviewing the part of the Fast Growth Treatment Bundle from Quebec based company, Crüe Cosmetics. I’ve been following this brand on Instagram for awhile and decided to purchase the Fast Growth Treatment Bundle out after reading a few of their blog posts about hair care. [info in italics taken from the Crüe Cosmetics website]

Crüe Cosmetics is a Montreal based company that specializes in the creation of products that are all natural, organic and vegan. The process involves the infusion of herbs and essential oils in order to produce highly efficient holistic products that are safe to use on hair and skin. We are passionate about delivering natural alternatives to hair and skin care and our products are all crafted and packaged by hand to maximize quality. We do not test on animals nor do we use any animal byproducts because we believe that within nature lies the cure to any ailment and we strive to use these solutions to help our customers. At Crüe Cosmetics, your beauty is in the hands of nature.

The Fast Growth Bundle is comprised of L’Ör Growth Serum and Neptüne Hydrating Oil. The serum is used on the scalp, and the oil is used on the hair for optimum healthy hair growth. I’ve been using them both for about two months now, so I feel ready to review them. Let’s take a look at the hydrating oil. I’ve already reviewed the Growth Serum here.

Neptüne Hydrating Oil

Neptüne Hydrating oil is a very versatile grape seed oil based product meant to be used on your hair, face and body. Grape seed oil contains more linoleic acid than most carrier oils and is full of emollients and nutrients which make it ideal for moisturizing and conditioning dry hair, reducing dandruff and dermatitis, and aid in the nurturing and growth of healthy skin cells. Burdock Root and Nettle leaf are well known for their ability to cure skin and hair issues such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff and dermatitis. We’ve added the anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial benefits of Lavender, Geranium, Black Pepper, Patchouli and Peppermint to further assist in strengthening of follicles, stimulating healthy hair growth and to treat wrinkles, unclog pores, remove blemishes and treat acne. With its many uses and benefits, Neptüne Hydrating oil is bound to become a staple in the care routine of anyone desiring beautiful hair and skin.

This oil can used used on hair, face and body. I’ve mainly used it on my hair and I have to say that I’m so in love with this one – it makes my hair so incredibly soft and shiny. The scent is beautiful, very earthy / herbal which I absolutely love! If the ends of my hair feel a little dry on my “Next Day Hair”, I just apply a little extra to the ends. It also works great to control frizz.

Just this week I decided to try a little bit of the Hydrating Oil on an irritated patch of skin in my underarm (which is either eczema, or reaction caused by baking soda in one of my deodorants) and the redness is nearly gone. Nothing I’ve tried has worked so quickly to reduce irritation! Powerful stuff.

Needless to say, I love the Neptüne Hydrating Oil!

I’ve been using them both for about two months now, so I feel ready to review them. Let’s take a look at the scalp serum:

L’Ör Growth Serum

L’Ör Growth Serum is a castor oil based serum infused with a special blend of herbs and organic essential oils such as: Ginger, Garlic, Black Pepper, Vetiver and Onion. These oils penetrate deep within the scalp to stimulate hair growth and maintain healthy hair and scalp. We also added 100% pure Rose essential oil and Sandalwood to assist in cooling the scalp and help treat and prevent dandruff. Castor oil has been used for centuries to improve hair growth due to its high ricinoleic acid content which balances the scalp’s pH level and increases circulation to the scalp. This unique combination of natural organic ingredients will improve the overall quality of your hair while accelerating hair growth.

I use the scalp serum once a week, sometimes once every week and a half. My scalp is very sensitive, and I find that it has been so much less easily irritated since I started using it. I also have a bunch of new hair growth – baby hairs. My hair tends to grow fairly quickly normally, but these days it seems like it is growing even faster! It does smell more like garlic and onions to my nose than vetiver, rose or sandalwood – but rinsing with apple cider vinegar after washing keeps the scent from sticking around, and gives my hair a crazy amount of shine!

I’ll be reviewing the Neptüne Hydrating Oil in a separate post this week!

Jamella, the owner of Crüe Cosmetics, calls each and every one of her customers and offers a hair consultation, and asks for feedback on the products. A very personal touch, one that I really appreciated!

Once I use up my current stash of hair masks, I’d like to try the Angëlia Hair Mask.

Öko Creations Makeup Removal Pads Review

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

Today I have a review of the Öko Creations Makeup Removal Pads. I purchsed these a few weeks ago to try, as I wanted a more environmentally friendly and sustainable replacement for disposable cotton rounds. Öko Creations is a Quebec based brand [info in italics is taken from the Öko Creations website]

At Öko Creations, our goal is to help consumers transition to a more eco-friendly lifestyle by offering a range of zero waste products for the whole family such as reusable handkerchiefs, menstrual pads and so much more!

We are actively working to minimize the environmental impacts of our operations from the beginning to the end of our production cycle. Our collections are proudly created and designed in Quebec from high quality and conscientiously chosen textiles such as help and organic cotton.

We are excited to promote local ethical sewing, helping rejuvenate Quebec’s textile industry. We offer good working conditions to our employees, such as fair wages, breaks, a healthy environment, yoga sessions, etc. Our corporate culture is based on human and collective values and we encourage every employee to take an active role in product development and manufacturing processes.

How amazing does this company sound?

Let’s take a look at the Makeup Removal Pads:

Made of natural hemp fleece, these reusable makeup removal pads are gentle on the skin and eliminate the need for disposable pads. Unlike the disposable ones, they will not tear between your fingers when wet. They are also, of course, an economical and environmental choice! An easy zero waste step! Effective for removing all types of makeup, lipstick and mascara, they can also be used for minor wound care, face washing, as ultra-light breast pads or other delicate tasks!

  • Format: 8-pack
  • Colour: natural, undyed with variable coloured trim.
  • Composition: 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton
  • Label: FSC paper, no plastic!
Öko Creations Makeup Removal Pads

These makeup removal pads are so velvety soft – and work amazingly well for removing mascara / eye makeup, and are perfect for applying facial toner.

So far I have not had any issues with staining, but I rinse them with soap and water right after using as suggested on the packaging. I keep the clean rounds in a repurposed glass jar to prevent them from getting dirty or lost when not in use.

The construction is sturdy, comprised of a double layer of the brushed hemp – cotton blend fleece, with brightly coloured stitching around the edges. I can see these lasting quite some time before needing to replace them!

Do you use reusable / washable makeup remover pads?

Routine Moon Sisters Natural Deodorant Stick Review

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

Today I’m reviewing the Natural Deodorant Stick from Routine in the Moon Sisters scent that was purchased recently from well.ca. Routine is a Canadian brand – this is my first time trying anything from this brand [info in italics taken from the Routine website]

Whimsical nostalgia, neroli & roses.
Wearing nothin’ but the moonlight,
summer swimming, striking poses.
CHARCOAL, MAGNESIUM & PREBIOTICS
Scent Profile: Floral & Grounding Predominant Scent: Rose & Neroli (low key floral with nostalgic undertones of summer) Formula: CHARCOAL (with prebiotics) Essential Oils: Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Champa, Vetiver, and Peppermint.

The charcoal detoxifies, magnesium relaxes the pits to reduce stress sweats and prebiotics keep your skin healthy. There is a touch of baking soda for added deodorizing- just enough to keep most sensitive skinned people from getting irritation.

This natural deodorant WORKS really well. Although it says that it only has a touch of baking soda in it, it is just enough that if I use it seven days in a row, it will trigger some irritation – but that is normal for me with any natural deodorant if it has baking soda. So I alternate using with a baking soda free deodorant to prevent reaction / give my skin a break.

Because this deodorant contains charcoal it is grey in colour, so I wouldn’t want to use it with a tank top as it does leave a faint grey cast on the skin. The scent is really nice – not too strong – I love rose and neroli, such a fresh and light floral scent!

I plan to try their baking soda free version the next time I’m stocking up on things from well.ca.

Are you a fan of natural deodorant? Have you tried this one?

Bloomiss Blooming Lashes Mascara Review

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

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen in my stories that I recently received a PR package from Bloomiss – they’re a Canadian brand that specializes in beauty, skincare and aromatherapy. I received the Tension Balm, a Natural Tinted Lip Balm, and the Blooming Lashes Mascara. Today I’m reviewing the Blooming Lashes Mascara. [info in italics taken from the Bloomiss website]

Blooming Lashes Mascara will give your eye lashes a treatment that is nourishing and conditioning, making sure to keep them healthy. That’s not all…we all know volume is key with lashes, so this special formula will lengthen and give your lashing natural looking volume in a deep black to make your eyes pop.  It’s a 100% natural clean mascara that you will feel good about putting on your eye lashes. A mascara that is toxin-free, paraben-free, and free from any harmful chemicals. 

Based on the description of the Blooming Lashes Mascara, this sounds like my kind of mascara. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am admittedly so mega picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I need to use a lash curler and I need a mascara that holds a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant. I have not had a lot of luck with any of the more natural mascara formulations that I’ve tried so far, but I’m always willing to try another one!

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Blooming Lashes Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant  +3/4 Not waterproof, but it withstood my watery eyes fairly well!

2. smudge-proof +1 This was surprising as it is not a waterproof formulation, but I had no smudging!

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Super dark black!

5. volumizing +1 Gave my lashes pretty good volume!

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It held a curl for several hours, but not as long as I had hoped! If it improves as it starts to dry out a bit, I will update my score.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 Probably the most eye friendly mascara formulation I’ve ever tried!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7 – the highest score I’ve ever given to a natural-based mascara!

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?

Founded in 2016 as a natural organic beauty, skincare and aromatherapy company, Bloomiss products were created to help every woman live their life in full bloom.

Anything that helps relieve soreness / stiffness without popping pain killers is welcomed. I really love the giant tube for easy application.

The standout ingredients are camphor, menthol and arnica – arnica works amazingly well for joint stiffness and pain. You can also use this Tension Balm for headaches. This stuff works really well to provide relief!

Attitude Super Leaves Shampoo Clarifying Review

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

Today I have a review of the Attitude Super Leaves Shampoo Clarifying Lemon Leaves and White Tea [info in italics taken from the Attitude website]

Did you know white tea leaf extract is known to delay the aging process thanks to its high antioxidant concentration? It also helps to protect your hair from daily oxidation. Harness the power of antioxidant-rich white tea leaf extract with ATTITUDE’s Super leaves™ Clarifying Shampoo. Plus, thanks to its purifying lemon leaf extract, you can give your hair a deep clean to restore its shine, even more if you are using styling products. Also, you will love its aroma that reminds us of Earl Grey tea and fresh cucumber. EWG Verified™, hypoallergenic and dermatologically-tested, our Clarifying Shampoo includes moringa seed extract, known for its antipollution properties. 

This is a great sulfate free clarifying shampoo – it lathers super well, and leaves my hair feeling super clean and shiny. I don’t find that it dries my hair out like some clarifying shampoos. The scent is very mild – I don’t smell any cucumber though, but it does smell like a lemony tea to my nose.

Also – I love that this brand is made in Canada!

Have you tried this clarifying shampoo? Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

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

Today I have a review of the Bubble Paste from Lowen’s Natural Skincare – I bought myself a few treats from their Black Friday sale, I already reviewed the Salt of the Earth Sea Salt Scrub. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I’ve gotten a PR package from them in the past and have reviewed several of their products. Those reviews are hereherehere and here.

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Salt of the Earth Sea Salt Scrub Review

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

Today I have a review of the Salt of the Earth (Sea Salt Scrub) from Lowen’s Natural Skincare – I bought myself a few treats from their Black Friday sale. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I’ve gotten a PR package from them in the past and have reviewed several of their products. Previous reviews are here, here, here and here. [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s website]

Lowen’s is a Canadian brand, based out of Calgary, Alberta.

Conceived by a veteran Pharmacist committed to using organic, fair-trade, and/or locally-sourced ingredients, Lowen’s creates unique skin care products that are safe, effective, long-lasting, and affordable.

Let’s take a look at the Sea Salt Scrub!

Our amazing (if we say so ourselves) exfoliating Sea Salt Body Scrub, loving made with: 

Vancouver Island Sea Salt

Extra Virgin Fair Trade Coconut Oil

Cold Pressed Organic Alberta Hemp Seed Oil

We’ve also added Soma Spa’s unique customized “relaxing mix” of essential oils. Helping to ease your journey into blissful serenity. All this local goodness will get your skin exfoliated, refreshed, and breathing again. For fans of softened skin, you’ve just found the perfect product win!

How to Use: Grab a pinch of Salt of the Earth Salt Scrub and slowly work it into the areas of your body you want to soften.When the salt granules are reduced to a fine powder. Rinse-off with warm water. Voila, you are off to the races!  Also, you can do a full body scrub in the shower.  Use as a once a week treat (but we do use the scrub on our hands on a daily basis.)

I think that this might be my first sea salt based body scrub! I really love how it exfoliates AND hydrates after using. My skin is so silky smooth after I use it!

The jar is quite big – who am I kidding – it is HUGE at 450g / 15oz! And they sell refills, so you can reduce your plastic consumption and just keep refilling the same jar which I love.

The essential oil blend is made up of:

Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) Oil, Bergamot Fruit (Citrus Bergamia) Oil, Juniper Berry (Juniperus Communis) Oil, Ylang Ylang Flower (Cananga Odorata) Oil.

It is beautifully scented, very fresh and uplifting!

Have you tried this one? Do you like salt based body scrubs?
