Luna Nectar Heliophilia Glow & Fix Serum

Heliophilia is a moisturizer that goes on luxuriously rich yet feels lightweight, absorbing quickly and leaving a protective dewy finish. This multi-tasking face and hair serum addresses skin concerns relating to transepidermal water loss. Formulated with 15 active star botanicals such as Squalane, Baobab, Meadowfoam, Amla, Seabuckthorn, Gotu Kola, Camellia and Rosehip); this serum is rich in naturally occurring antioxidants such as vitamin A and C, essential fatty acids, omega-6, and omega-9. Heliophilia pulls double duty of deeply moisturizing, and producing a radiant, fresh, dewy supple glow.

Due to the seabuckthorn oil, Heliophilia will give you a subtle, beautiful bronzy glow – perfect for those effortless summer days.

For hair, Heliophilia is a nourishing oil to balance and restore moisture to damaged, overprocessed, and chemically treated locks.

I love that it is a multi-tasker, it can be used for both skin and hair. It can also be mixed into your moisturizer or foundation for an added boost of hydration and glow!

Made For Me Classic Experience Box Review

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

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

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

I was sent the Made For Me (MfM) Classic Experience Box to try out and review. Made For Me is a new Toronto based skincare brand, that is made in Australia, and is organic, vegan and cruelty-free [info in italics taken from the Made For Me website]

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

The concept for the Experience Box was modelled after that of the “subscription box” – a trend that was well known in the 2010s where consumers receive a monthly box full of curated products as a way of gifting them. However, not all monthly boxes are created equal, and some came in with mixed results to consumers.

After testing out the concept of the products in different sets, we found what works best and decided to package them together. However we still believe in the concept of gifting so long as it adds to their normal routines. Every few months, when you order a box, you may still get the same 3 core products, but you also get a mystery item that may be different from what you got before. That is, we decided to combine the surprise element with the predictability of our high quality, all organic selections that you would love. You are not obligated to order the boxes at preset durations. 

The Classic Experience Box ($90 CAD), is composed of a Brightening C Serum, a Hydrating Moisturizer and an Eye Cream. There is also a surprise mystery gift (this gift changes quarterly). Let’s take a look at the Brightening C Serum:

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

The serum contains properties from marine collagen, which improves the skin’s firmness and plumpness. It is also a great choice if you’ve been looking to fade dark spots or achieve the smooth, luminous texture that you’ve always dreamed of. Ingredients contain: Kakadu Plum Extract, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C

My skin LOVES vitamin C based skincare, and this is a great serum. If you want luminous skin, then this is the serum for you. I can see this working for all skin types.

Now onto the Hydrating Moisturizer:

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

Our Star product and a fan favourite, this facial lotion helps promote and improve overall glow of the skin. It contains a number of organic and botanical antioxidants to restore the skin’s natural appearance and achieve a supple complexion. Use it after the brightening serum and don’t forget your SPF! It can also be used as a makeup primer, as it leaves the skin glowing and prepped for any product you may be using after.
Ingredients contain: Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, Davidson Plum

This is such a nice moisturizer! It is light, hydrating and works amazingly well with the Brightening C Serum. Hello glowing skin! It plays nicely with makeup too. It can be used both morning and night.

And last, but not least, the Eye Cream:

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

The Classic Eye Cream helps in de- puffing & soothes the skin around the eye area. Its soft, velvety texture enables the skin to absorb nutrients to reduce dark circles and lessen the look of wrinkles leaving the eye area firm and well hydrated. Ingredients contain: Jojoba, Avocado Extract, Shea butter

My eyes are often puffy from allergies, and dark circles from the combination of allergies and occasional insomnia, so this eye cream has been such a great product for me. It really works to de-puff and soothe my under eyes.

And as for the mystery gift box – it is such a great idea, and no I’m not going to spoil it, my lips are sealed!

Made for Me Classic Experience Box

This is such a great skincare set, and it would make a great gift idea. Each of the three products are also sold separately – which I think is a great idea, because I use up moisturizer faster than serums, or eye creams.

Have you tried this brand?

Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum Review

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

Today I’m reviewing the Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum that I purchased and have been testing for a few weeks now. [info in italics taken from the Shoppers Drug Mart website]

Retexturizing night serum that uses gentle encapsulated retinol and two natural botanical retinol alternatives to help speed up cell turnover, boost collagen production, and smooth wrinkles without irritation.

Creamy yet light texture absorbs seamlessly into skin Made for aging, dullness, and problem skin Clean, cruelty-free, vegan.

This would be a great “starter” retinol if you are new to retinol based products, or if you have sensitive skin. After doing my usual 24 hour patch test, I started using it nightly with no irritation or dryness. The serum is milky in appearance and absorbs quickly, and doesn’t feel sticky or heavy.

Reminder – retinol really should only be used at night, and if you are using retinol, always wear SPF – you should be wearing sunscreen daily regardless of retinol usage!

Have you tried this retinol serum?

Skin&CO Truffle Therapy Face Toner Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude! Today I have a review of the Skin&CO Truffle Therapy Face Toner that came in my Winter CAUSEBOX [info in italics taken from the Skin&CO website].

Gentle, powerful, soothing, and healing.  Truffle Therapy Face Toner deeply cleanses and purifies pores with the antiseptic power of Witch Hazel and Sage, effectively removing impurities, clogged pores and dead skin cells to treat, heal, and prevent blemishes.  The natural extracts and antioxidant properties of Black Winter Truffle, Rosemary, Calendula, and Cucumber soothes and protects from environmental and free radical damage.

This is a really nice toner – it doesn’t sting or make my skin feel stripped. My skin seems to be doing really well since I started using this toner approximately four weeks ago. I think that it is really helping to prevent my skin from breaking out or becoming over-sensitive from all the mask wearing.

Have you tried this cruelty free and vegan toner? Do you have a favourite facial toner?

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.
