Royal Canadian Mineral Water Spray

Royal Canadian Mineral Water Spray

My name is Chelsea, and I’m a facial mist addict. I’ve tried dozens on the market but I’ve just discovered this new one by Royal Canadian Laboratories. Formulated for sensitive skin, this natural facial mist is the perfect refresher. This product also contains Selenium, an antioxidant naturally found in soil, plants, and in water, which has anti-aging properties. Apparently, the atomizer on this mist delivers a ultra fine, gentle mist of millions of small droplets. There are so many ways to use this product too, so it’s perfect for everyone. Here are some of my favorite ways to use facial mist:

  • While applying makeup: help settle any excess powder on your face
  • As a makeup refresher: give your afternoon or evening makeup a pick-me-up, without disrupting any colored cosmetics or pigments
  • In your spa skin care routine: layer this mist in-between skin care steps for extra pampering
  • At the gym: spritz yourself before, during, & after a workout for a boost of hydration
  • At the beach: chill off or soothe your sunburn
  • While traveling: it’s an air travel & road trip essential that easily fits in your handbag
  • When sick in bed: for when you are feeling ill and can’t be bothered to get up

So go ahead, spritz away!

A+ Botanics Skin Care

A+ BOTANICS Skin Care

A+ BOTANICS is a botanical skin care line from California, rooted in the purest of ingredients. You know I love natural and paraben-free skin care, so this is right up my alley! The line features cleansers, toners, lotions, serums, masques, and more targeted at skin concerns such as acne, aging, and discoloration. So while the products are natural, wholesome, and mostly organic, they promise to be effective too! All of these products are priced at $29, are cruelty-free, and also are proudly made in the USA. For my oily to combination skin, I’m most interested in trying the Bilberry AHA/BHA Anti-Acne Cleanser, the Neroli Nourish Toner and the Rosemary Anti-Acne & Oil-Controlling Masque. I definitely recommend giving their site a visit – I love how on each product page you can easily see all of the ingredients and what exactly they do on your skin.

Sinister Bath Soaps

Goat's Milk Honey Sinister Bath Soaps

You know I love all things indie, so that’s why I’m excited to share another new indie label with you today! While the Sinister Bath Soap brand is marketed towards men, I think the scents are incredibly versatile and suitable for any gender or lifestyle. There are 12+ scents to choose from and all are 100% natural. The Goat’s Milk Honey soap is formulated with olive oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, goat’s milk, glycerin, and date blossom oil among several other oil ingredients, so you know it’ll be gentle on the skin. Of all the scents offered, none appear too sweet, which I love because I don’t want to smell like a strong bakery scent 24/7. Any of these soaps will make an awesome affordable gift or stocking stuffer this holiday season, for the man in your life who doesn’t normally invest in little luxuries like this!

Bella Terra Cosmetics Mineral Foundation

Bella Terra Cosmetics Mineral Foundation

In the summer, I know it can be hard to go through the motions of applying a full face of makeup, let alone a liquid foundation. While I personally do not have a lot of experience in the mineral foundation category, I know when I do dabble in it I’m going to look for products that are more natural but yet effective. That’s why Bella Terra’s line sparked my interest, since their long-lasting mineral foundation formula contains only 4 pure and raw ingredients. Since I have sensitive and acne-prone skin, I have to be super careful what I apply on my face. This mineral foundation is recommended by dermatologists and cosmetologists alike for skin of any color or age. The soft and silky mineral formula can blend away redness and blemishes, giving your skin a more even and radiant appearance. People also say it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing makeup, something that we could all appreciate in the middle of summer. So sign me up… I think I’m ready to make the move to mineral!

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter

Since I’ve been showing a little more leg on vacation, and starting to self tan more regularly, I’ve made it a habit to moisturize my skin religiously every day as soon as I get out of the shower. Besides my 100% pure unrefined extra virgin coconut oil I apply at night, I use a lighter product that absorbs more quickly in the day and I’ve recently been stuck on Pacifica’s Body Butter in Tuscan Blood Orange. This is a fabulous natural product that contains high quality ingredients like shea butter, almond and safflower seed oil, and mango butter. The scent is absolutely strong, bright ,and citrusy, with subtle finishing notes of Madagascar vanilla. While this is a thick body butter, I find that it blends well over my legs and arms and doesn’t leave me waiting long to put on my clothes after application. Nourishing enough to be a daily hand cream and body moisturizer, I was using this product non-stop last week on my trip to Kansas City, where I was strutting a little more skin on the hot and humid Midwest days. I just love that this product is paraben-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan. Replacing it will be a breeze, too, because this product is thankfully carried at Target!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Lashes are by far my favorite facial feature to enhance with makeup, and I’ve recently become curious about what I can use beyond plain old mascara. There are pricy growth serums and treatments, all kinds of false eyelashes, and primers you can use as well to compliment what you’ve already got before mascara goes on. These Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique essentially work similar to a traditional primer and mascara combo, except with hundreds of lash-enhancing fibers that kick it up a notch! You start by using your regular mascara; apply one coat and let it dry. Then move on to the first tube, the Transplanting Gel, in the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes duo, which will help the fibers adhere to the lashes. And you guessed it; the next step is to immediately apply the product from the second tube, the Moodstruck Natural Fibers, while the gel is still wet, to take your lashes to the next level. Lastly, seal it all in with another layer of the Transplanting Gel to top off the look. The Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes give your natural lashes a 300% boost in volume and thickness, leaving you with more full, bushy, and sexy lashes. The best part? This high impact product is waterproof, yet still easy to wash off with warm water and your cleanser or makeup remover. No more tugging at your eyes, rubbing away lash glue and impossible-to-get-off waterproof mascara. If you wear waterproof mascara or falsies daily, you know how much of a pain and chore removal is.

I’ve featured Younique cosmetics in the past, and I wanted to remind you they’re an all-natural and mineral-based brand, that’s free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and yucky cheap fillers! Younique also operates through direct sales reps, like many cult favorite beauty brands, so if you’re interested in a new career in beauty please check out their opportunities page. I’ve heard great things!

Cosmedica Skincare Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Cosmedica Skincare Hyaluronic Acid Serum

We’ve all heard it time and time again, keeping your skin hydrated is best thing you can do for your overall skin health. It’s even easier than avoiding the sun, or remembering to wear and reapply SPF. If you haven’t already heard, hyaluronic acid is a wonderous humectant, a compound that powerfully draws in moisture from the environment. It can hold 1000 times its weight in water and it naturally occurs in various human tissue for lubrication and hydration purposes. But sometimes our bodies could use a little extra serving of this magical stuff, and it’s great to get in a serum as one of the first skin products that touch and sink into your bare skin. This Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Cosmedica Skincare is by far one of the most affordable and 100% pure options I’ve found. It’s made in America and is completely paraben-free; with no added fragrances, oils, or fillers. Hyaluronic acid can help promote skin elasticity and boost collagen production, while obviously adding hydration by helping your skin retain more moisture. It can overall help the appearance of your skin in texture and complexion evenness, so I absolutely think this is something everyone can incorporate in their routine. It’s such an easy small step to take to achieve brighter, more beautiful, and well hydrated skin. I already take HA supplements daily, but I think switching to this serum is the more economical way to go.
