Schmidt’s Charcoal & Magnesium Natural Deodorant – This is one of the best natural deodorants that I’ve used. Review is here. I’ve already repurchased this one.

Aromatherapy Empties:

Empties Feb 2018 5

Saje Natural Wellness Liquid Sunshine, Now Essential Oils Peppermint and Eucalyptus – since getting our new diffusers, we’ve been using them non-stop. The peppermint and eucalyptus were majorly used when the Mr. and I had the dreaded winter plague (thankfully just a crappy cold and not the flu). We are slowly building up a collection of essential oils.

Were you able to finish up many products this month?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Weekly Recap Nov 20th to 26th

Hello, hello!

Just a little recap of the past week’s blog posts in case you’ve missed out and want to catch up…

Monday, Nov 20th – Kani Botanicals Moon Milk Review

Wednesday, Nov 22nd – Plant Apothecary Get Happy Bodywash Review

Friday, Nov 24th – Poetic Blend The Ghost Oil Review

This coming week, I will only be posting on Tuesday and Thursday instead of my usual Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule. I’ll still be reading and commenting daily as usual.

By the way, the Kani Moon Milk works great as a hair oil! My hair was soft and under control. And no one commented that my hair looked like a disco ball.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Plant Apothecary Get Happy Bodywash Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Get Happy Bodywash from Plant Apothecary that came in my October box from Petit Vour [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Plant Apothecary Get Happy Bodywash

The GET HAPPY Organic Bodywash is enriched with organic essential oils of geranium and peppermint, which are known for their uplifting properties. Take a sniff and lather up to boost your mood and make it a happy day! The all-natural, honeylike gel is made of only eight simple ingredients, and is completely free of parabens, SLS, petroleum, silicones and harsh, mysterious chemicals. And its gentle, low-sudsing formula is gentle on even sensitive skin.

Plant Apothecary Get Happy Bodywash

This bodywash smells so amazing and uplifting. It reminds me of the Buff Face and Body Scrub from Wildcraft that I absolutely love (review is here). This is a really lovely and gentle bodywash. Definitely a great one for those dark and cold mornings when you need a little extra oomph to get going!

I love that this bodywash has minimal ingredients, and that they are all organic.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

October Petit Vour Unboxing + First Impressions

Hello, hello!

When I signed up for a Petit Vour subscription, I had thought that I would not be getting my first box until November, so getting the October box was a nice surprise! (info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website)

Petit Vour October 2017

Elevate or recreate your beauty routine with a subscription to Petit Vour’s luxury-curated, cruelty-free beauty box. Each month you’ll receive 4 products ($45-$60 value) of non-toxic and plant-based beauty, curated to your beauty profile.

There were five products in this month’s box, and according to the info sheet, this month’s box is worth $47 USD. Let’s take a look at what is inside:

Petit Vour October 2017

It comes with an informational card that lists the cost of both the sample and full sized versions of the products, as well as a product description and instructions for use.

Petit Vour October 2017

Kani Botanicals Moon Milk – I was nervous when I read the description since I really do not like most jasmine based scents, but the combination with the  tuberose somehow works for me. It is quite glittery looking, but I’ll at least try it out. If it ends up being too glittery on my skin, I’ll use it as a scented hair oil.

Petit Vour October 2017

Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme Masque – I was super happy to see a facial mask in this box as I’m down to the last bit of my Incredible Pumpkin Peel Mask from MyChelle Dermaceuticals. It smells great, so I can wait to test it out!

Petit Vour October 2017

Petit Vour October 2017

Poetic Blend Ghost Oil – I love facial oils, and with the recent change to colder weather, I will be putting this and several other facial oils to the test! It has no real scent (yay!) and in quickly swatching it on my hand, it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a greasy residue, so I have high hopes for this one!

Petit Vour October 2017

Mai Couture Highlighter Paper – I don’t really get the purpose of this other than for travelling light. I doubt that this is something that I would ever purchase, but I’ll try it out.

Petit Vour October 2017

Plant Apothecary “Get Happy” Organic Body Wash – This shower gel smells amazing, it will be great to use on sluggish mornings as the geranium and peppermint scent is super upifting! It smells similar to the Wildcraft Buff Face and Body Scrub that I love.

Petit Vour October 2017

Full reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to try test things out!

Petit Vour October 2017

What do you think? I like knowing that all of the products are cruelty free. And as an added plus, they are also vegan!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
