Review: Lime & Lotus Organics Daily Face Cream

I recently mentioned in my fall favorites video that I’ve been loving the Daily Face Cream from Lime & Lotus Organics. However, I don’t use it as a daily face cream – and I’ll explain in a minute. I’m a fan of how this product is packaged, and love the all natural ingredients including coconut […] Read more…

Review: Jurlique Activating Water Essence

I’m always for trying products that are supposed to calm and soften my skin. My sensitive skin, much like my nerves, can always benefit from a bit of calming ingredients. The new Jurlique Activating Water Essence starts to relax me before I even put it on my skin by merely looking at it’s beautifully simple bottle. The smooth, frosted 150ml […] Read more…

All You Need Is Me by True Organic of Sweden

A few weeks ago I received a lovely tube of All You Need is Me by True Organic of Sweden. Thank you Detox Market! I was initially intrigued by the simple, modern packaging, but also the simple lineup of organic ingredients. They call this a “high performance natural and organic ointment.” An intensive balm with […] Read more…

Review: Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Collection

As the weather gets cooler (we’ve had snow here already in Vermont!), my skin calls for something a little different than the lightweight summer moisturizers. Lately I’ve been testing out the Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Beautiful Day Cream, Night Cream, Rosewater Mask, and Eye Revive Contour Gel – which I’ll be reviewing here today. I don’t know about […] Read more…

Just Natural Skincare Favorites

Over the past several months I’ve been enjoying a few products from Just Natural Skincare and wanted to share my favorites with you. These items barely scratch the surface of what this company has available in their line, so I’ll be excited to continue exploring their products. But for now I’m loving these four. I really like that […] Read more…

Winter Necessities For Dry + Sensitive Skin

In a way you might also call this my “February Favorites” post since these heavenly products definitely got me through the past month of -20 degree days and so much snow it feels like we’ll never see green again. My skin gets super sensitive and dry during the winter months, but these products are great […] Read more…

Clarisonic SMART Profile Review

A year ago it seemed like I was the only person who hadn’t tried a sonic cleansing device and I was extremely curious about them – but then I had the amazing privilege of trying the new Clarisonic Smart Profile 4-Speed sonic cleansing device months before it was even on the market (so I could consider it […] Read more…

Unboxing: Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

I’ve recently been interested in what kind of subscription boxes are out there that contain natural products. Vegan Cuts sent me one of their beauty boxes to check out (I think it is the November box) and I was very pleased with what I found. It contains more than $53 worth of natural products for just […] Read more…

Review: Miraculous Maracuja Oil

As someone who has combination skin (oily/dry) I was very apprehensive about trying a face oil. Last year Tarte Cosmetics sent me their beautifully bottled pure Maracuja Oil ($46) to be considered for Sweet Violet Bride’s natural beauty guide and so I gave it a try. I feared it would make me break out and hesitantly patted […] Read more…

Review: Osmia Organics Lip Luster & Foaming Cleanser

First of all, the name Osmia just sounds cool doesn’t it? And it really is. The word means to smell (in medicine, the inability to smell is anosmia) and every Osmia product is made with utmost attention to the scent and its aromatherapeutic benefits. I was completely taken by this brand as soon as I […] Read more…
