22 Mar

Hi everyone! I hope spring is coming quickly to wherever you live.

Last week, I received a 2021 Natural Spring Beauty Box with products that are perfect for kick-starting a spring beauty routine.

Beauty Box Details

Here’s an overview of the products in the 2021 Natural Spring Beauty Box courtesy of Farleyco, who represents brand names found at major chains and independent drug stores across Canada.

This beauty box highlights natural products so if you’re into clean beauty products, check out the details below.

Splat Naturals Semi-Permanent Hair Color
Whether you’re looking for an all-over color, streaks, ombre, or dip dye, Splat Naturals has a 95% natural formula that makes color transition easy and gentle. The one-step color lasts for 4-6 weeks and has an ultra-conditioning base infused with Baobab Seed Oil, Quinoa Extracts, and Pro-Vitamin B5. It’s also free of bleach, parabens, sulfates, PPD, ammonia, and fragrance.

The environmentally-friendly packaging is also unique with an easy squeeze pack that reduces color waste.

Splat Naturals is available at ShopHali and more retailers to come.

Inectco Naturals Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Inecto Naturals haircare contains 100% pure coconut oil that quickly penetrates hair to make it grow stronger and thicker. It also helps to lock in moisture and reduce hair damage.

You can use the shampoo daily to cleanse and moisturize hair (it’s tailor-made for dry and frizz-prone hair). The conditioner is super-creamy and great for detangling hair!

Inecto Naturals is available at Rexall Pharma Plus, London Drugs, Guardian IDA, and Pharmasave stores.

Hawkins & Brimble Elemi & Ginseng Face Wash

Hawkins & Brimble is a men’s grooming line packed with natural ingredients.

I received the new face wash which removes excess oil, dirt, and debris. It contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, known for its nourishing and soothing properties.

I can’t wait for my favorite guy to try this face cleanser!

Hawkins & Brimble is available at ShopHali and more retailers to come.

Foamie Hibiskiss Bar Soap and Conditioner

Have you tried solid bar shampoo or conditioner yet? Solid haircare bars are great for travel (hopefully, we will all be traveling soon!) and more environmentally friendly than a conventional shampoo bottle.

I received a sample of the Hibiskiss Solid Shampoo Bar for Damaged Hair and the Hibiskiss Solid Conditioner Bar for Damaged Hair. This shampoo and conditioner are designed to strengthen and repair damage to bleached or coloured hair. The subtle scent of hibiscus also lasts all day long due to cold-pressed formulation.

All products in this vegan line are free from mineral oils, PEG, soap, parabens, and silicones.

Foamie products are available at ShopHali and London Drugs.

The Humble Co. Bamboo Toothbrush

If you want to go natural when brushing your teeth, this toothbrush includes a 100% biodegradable bamboo handle. Bamboo, which is the fastest growing plant on earth, is naturally anti-bacterial which means that there is no need to use fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation.

The Humble Brush cleans just as well and lasts just as long as a regular plastic toothbrush. It also features an ergonomic grip and high-quality bristles.

Foamie products are available at ShopHali and more retailers to come.

7th Heaven Superfood Masks

7th Heaven is always ahead of the curve when it comes to innovative masque options. Here are the superfood masques that I’m sampling:

  • The Olive Oil SHEET Mask is a deep skin quenching sheet mask infused with a superfood blend of cleansing Olive Oil for long-lasting 24 hour hydration.
  • The Matcha and Chia CLAY Mask is loaded with skin calming matcha, moisturizing chia seed and purifying moringa seed for a glowing complexion.
  • The Avocado CLAY Mask comes in a rich, hydrating clay formula with exfoliating walnut, softening avocado, and aloe vera. All of these ingredients also help to reveal brighter skin.

7th Heaven products are available at London Drugs, Rexall, Pharmachoice, Jean Coutu, and Uniprix.

Thanks to Farleyco for all of these natural beauty samples!

PRO:VOKE ILLUMINEX Touch of Silver Strengthening Purple Shampoo and Conditioner

4 Mar

Hi everyone! I hope spring is in the air wherever you are. 🌹

Since I have highlighted hair, I’m a big fan of purple-based shampoo and conditioner. For a color pick-me-up, nothing beats purple pigments in a hair formula for cancelling out brassy tones (yellow or orange).

Awhile back, I was sent hair products from the PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver line. Overall, this line quickly has become one of my favorites for keeping my highlights looking bright.

The Touch of Silver shampoo and conditioner use violet pigments to neutralize yellowing, fading, and dullness, The formula contains Optical Brighteners and Sunflower Seed Extract to protect color. A blend of conditioners, moisturize, soften, and add shine.

PRO:VOKE ILLUMINEX Touch of Silver Strengthening Purple Shampoo

The PRO:VOKE ILLUMINEX Touch of Silver Strengthening Purple Shampoo with a vibrant purple pigment not only removes yellow and orange brassy tones, it also strengthens damaged hair.

The vegan formula is sulphate-free and tailored to meet hair color needs. It’s also created with UV filters, active ingredients, and advanced technologies.

PRO:VOKE ILLUNIMEX Touch of Silver Strengthening Purple Conditioner

The PRO:VOKE ILLUMINEX Touch of Silver Strengthening Purple Conditioner uses an advanced formula, which is silicone & sulphate-free to deeply hydrate. This conditioner also smooths cuticles and restores hair.

I use the Touch Of Silver shampoo and conditioner every other wash to keep things fresh (I leave the shampoo on for a minute, then rinse well). Not only does my hair color look better, the condition is improved with more body.

In Canada, you can find the PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver line at these retailers:

  • LondonDrugs.com
  • Rexall
  • Select Lawtons Drugs
  • Select London Drugs
  • Select Pharma Plus
  • Select Pharmasave
  • Select Save-On-Foods

Extra Info: If you haven’t noticed any grey hairs yet, here’s something to keep in mind. Grey hair is hereditary and your hair will change around the same time as your parents. Yikes! 👵🏻

 

 

Youth To The People: 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum

1 Feb

Happy February, everyone!

I feel like I just blinked, and we’re well into 2021.

Last week, I was fortunate to receive a sample from Youth to the People. Founded in 2015, this California-based, family-owned company creates consciously-sourced, nutrient-dense superfood blends that are paired with vegan ingredients for powerful results.

The sample I received, which I’ve just started using, is the 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum. As a side note, it came in this amazing recyclable PR package full of “juicy” information. More good news about the packaging: the bottle that the serum comes in is also recyclable!

This Vitamin C serum is different in that it’s boosted with caffeine to visibly brighten, reduce hyperpigmentation, even tone, and firm the look of skin (among other benefits). The caffeine comes from Yerba Mate and Guayusa, which is a clean source with antioxidants that help to visibly depuff (yes!) and contour.

The serum is gentle, and the Vitamin C complex is ultra-stable with ethyl ascorbic acid, thd ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. It’s also lightweight, non sticky, fragrance-free, and suitable for sensitive skin.

You just have to apply the serum once a day: preferably in the morning. Experts recommend applying Vitamin C serum in the morning because it becomes less effective when exposed to light.

What I’ve noticed so far is that the serum soaks in nicely and hydrates my skin. A little goes a long way, and and helps with morning puffiness. I can’t wait to see the results with continued use, including:

  • Even skin tone
  • Visibly reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Firmness

Thanks to Youth To The People for this sample.

All the best!
