No More Dirty Looks

I get asked what all natural beauty/skin care products I use quite a bit by friends and family, so I thought I would quickly post about one of the websites that has helped me as I transition to all natural skincare and make up, please say hello to…

NO MORE DIRTY LOOKS

No More Dirty Looks (NMDL) is a website that launched in 2010, it’s also a book and a community for people who are passionate about natural beauty, wellness and healthy living. Founded by co-authors Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, these ladies are queens of green beauty in my eyes. Their book, posts and the website community helped me personally deal with a dermatitis flare a few winters ago (more on that soon…) so I feel like it’s my duty to support and share my love of their site.

Some things you’ll find on NMDL:

PETIT VOUR APRIL 2015 BOX REVIEW

Better late than never, right???Petit Vour April 2015 Box SubscriptionI’m pretty backlogged in writing these reviews, but I’m going to try to catch up before the summer ends, so wish me luck.  Oh, and please don’t think the lack of posting reviews is because I don’t like the products. I actually get really excited to receive the box each month. I wouldn’t repurchase every product I’ve tried, but I have found some real gems, which is great.

The Detox Market Toronto

Erin and I had the pleasure of visiting the The Detox Market Toronto a few weeks ago. I’m obsessed with watching beauty/makeup videos on YouTube, and one of my favourite channels is celebrity make-up artist Jamie Greenberg. Recently, she went to the LA Detox Market, and all I could think was…

I Want To Go To There

Jamie doesn’t post exclusively about natural products, but she is so damn hilarious that I love watching her anyways. She does Kaley Cuoco’s make up, and the videos of them two together crack me up. Anyway, after I watched her video I immediately went and Googled the store to check for a website/on-line shopping, and found that they had a Toronto location:

Test Dummies: Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Coconut Magic Lotion

Dr. Bronners Lotion

WHY I BOUGHT IT
I was in the habit of using coconut oil to moisturize after I showered, but sometimes that can get a bit oily/takes a while to absorb. I thought I’d try something new and really like Dr. Bronner’s products, so gave this lotion a shot.

PRICE
$13.99 for 237 ml

MY THOUGHTS
I really like this lotion, the consistency is more of a mix between an oil and a cream. It’s kind of runny, but absorbs quickly and I don’t need that much to moisturize my whole bod (4-5 pumps). I also really like how smooth it makes my skin feel after using it and doesn’t have a heavy scent. (more…)
