Best Probiotic: MegaFood’s MegaFlora Review

As we all know, having beautiful skin is largely correlated by how healthy we are on the inside. Heck, I’d even say there’s causation. :) For this reason, I’ll be periodically blogging about good things to put in your body (such as the Mighty Green Smoothie). Why Do I Need Probiotics? Today it’s all about the probiotics.  I’m a huge proponent of taking probiotics to help rid your intestines of toxins, improve your immune system and help build up the {Read More}

Natural Eyeshadow: Dr. Hauschka Stone Eyeshadow Palette Review

Creating a naturally pretty look has a lot to do with your skin, but also your eyes. Using colours that play up the eye colour instead of distract from it, is the best way to go. I have always found that for my fair skin, a nice grey or matte brown eyeshadow and a pale lip gloss works well for me. So, when I found this eye shadow pallet I fell a little bit in love. Why Dr. Haushka? Dr. {Read More}

Best Eyelash Curler: Shiseido Eyelash Curler Review

Although this post might be shying away from the “natural” it is still very much beauty oriented — and I had to share this one with you. I am an eyelash girl. I LOVE big thick and gorgeous eyelashes. I go through mascara like it is my day job, but before that is applied I always grab the essential: the eyelash curler. You already think I’m going to tell you about Shu Uemura, right? Well, no, it isn’t. THERE IS {Read More}

Natural Foundation: AnneMarie Borlind Fluid Makeup Review

The process of moving has left me stranded without internet for the past week. I have to admit, however, it was a mixed blessing. I actually had time to pick up a book…and do some shopping, of course. I have a few products on my radar as of this week, but I am going to get started with my one of my favourites – a natural foundation.  I am not a huge fan of powder foundation, as my skin has {Read More}

Natural Shampoo: Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo for Dry Hair Review

I have really long hair. I’m not talking below the shoulders; more often than not my hair is almost hitting my bellybutton, so for me, shampoo is a big HUGE deal. I have always had a difficult time keeping the entire length of it shiny and soft (naturally) until I found this glorious product. Aubrey Organic’s Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo for Dry Hair is brilliant. It contains sweet macadamia nut and rose oil, so it smells lovely and the pretty honeysuckle {Read More}

Best Green Smoothie Recipe: Blended Beauty Food

Many of us know that drinking green smoothies do great things for our skin, energy and everything else in between; however, not many people know that this is probably one of the best breakfasts for which your body can ask. Packed with nutrients and essential vitamins, it is no wonder you start the day feeling more energetic than you did the day before. Green Smoothie Recipe I’ve tried a multitude of Green Smoothie recipes, so here is an adaptation to {Read More}

Natural Dry Shampoo: Lulu Organics Hair Powder Review

We all run a little late sometimes, and lets face it, washing your hair every day is one of the quickest ways to strip it of its natural shine. That is where dry shampoo comes in – and thank goodness for it! Over the past while I’ve used a multitude of variations of dry shampoo, until I realized that most of the powders had Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate – an ingredient boasting a dangerous number 9 on the Cosmetics Database safety {Read More}

Best Natural Cold Cure: Joy of the Mountains Oil of Oregano

When the seasons start changing I usually feel cold symptoms coming on. But they tend to stay at bay because of my love (and hate) of Oil of Oregano. This immune boosting miracle oil has prevented and healed sickness for me on numerous occasions. And the best part is that it is completely natural. What is Oil of Oregano Good For? Essentially Oil of Oregano discourages the growth of harmful microrganisms, parasites, and viruses.  It also is great for candida, {Read More}

Burt’s Bees Natural Tinted Lip Balm Review

I’m obsessed with having something on my lips. As soon as the lip gloss, lip stick, chap stick, coconut oil – whatever – has worn off, I immediately beeline for the cosmetics cabinet or rifle through my purse. I’m not a fan of dark colours, so using lipstick has never been much of an issue for me. However, I am addicted to glosses. For those of you that do wear lipstick keep heed warning: lead is an ingredient in many {Read More}
