Test Dummies: Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

WHY I BOUGHT IT

I wanted to alternate my typical routine of brushing my teeth with soap (more on that here), with a paste that had a baking soda base. Erin just featured Joyous Health as her Book of the Month and I wanted to learn more about it, so I checked out Joy’s website. Guess what… she has a toothpaste with a baking soda base (SCORE).

When I visited The Yoga Show last month I knew I wanted to pop by the Joyous Health booth to purchase it. Little did I know, Joy would be there in real life. She was so kind and helpful, I was going to buy the toothpaste anyways, but it made me feel extra happy that I was supporting a local business and a fellow female!

Now that spring is here and the weather is (…slowly) warming up in Canada, I thought I’d do a post on choosing a more natural sunscreen. I’m a huge sun-lover. If someone told me I was some type of fabulous water lizard in another life, I would believe them. There are few things I love more than a beach and sunny weather. That being said, I also don’t want to end up looking like a human lizard as I age – so sun protection is important.

WHY I BOUGHT IT
I had just run out of my old cleanser and needed something to replace it. However, I was in a rush and grabbed this without reading the ingredients as well as I should have, and now I have regrets 😦 (more…)

Ethical and Cruelty-Free Beauty Subscription Services: Petit Vour

wi-fi organic

I’m trying to transition all my makeup and skin care to natural, cruelty-free products and it’s going well so far. I feel like there is way more variety at Whole Foods or your local supermarket, drug store etc. than before, but some natural brands can be preeeetty pricey. To the point where, when I buy something and it isn’t working, it bums me and my wallet out.

It’s tough to get samples at the grocery store, and I could just return the full size product if it’s not working out, but I hate being wasteful and always ask myself: “Where do those lightly used products go once people return them?”. I ended up asking someone at Sephora what they would do with a concealer I was returning and they said it would probably be thrown out…
