Crème de la Crème: The Kari Gran Lip Whip Edition

Can I take the title Queen of Lip Balms? I’m doing it. Lip Balm Queen, comin’ atcha! From my early teens, I have been obsessive when it comes to having something on my lips at all times. The feeling of dry, chapped lips just doesn’t fly with me. I loathe it. No, No, NO!  Sometimes I feel like I’ve tried everything on the market, and because of … Continue reading Crème de la Crème: The Kari Gran Lip Whip Edition

Clarify and Restore with Vapour

I’ve loved Vapour from the very start, so I was so excited to try the Clarity Oil Cleanser and the Essence Restorative Night Treatment. I’ve only used their makeup until trying these two oils, but much like my love for their makeup, these skincare picks are easy to love, too. I’m a huge supporter of oil cleansing.

With names like Sweet Tea, and Blackberry Wine, what’s not to love about this charming line? It is southern elegance and hospitality wrapped into pretty little glass jars and stamped … Continue reading FarmHouse Fresh

  Something I am working to do more of; actively seek out companies who have sustainable sourcing and strong ethical practices. Those requirements intersect in LXMI (pronounced LUXE-ME). The entire line is built around the prized ingredient, nilotica (NILE-oh-TEE-CA). It’s an incredibly rare form of shea butter that grows near the Nile Valley with a composition of 25% higher essential fatty acids than shea butter … Continue reading LXMI

Glow up with Kypris: Antioxidant Dew & Beauty Elixir II

Holy GLOW, Batman! Kypris does not disappoint. Let me just start with that. From the very first application of Antioxidant Dew, it immediately brightened and hydrated my skin. I swatched it on my hand before applying it to my face to see if there was an immediate effect, and sure enough all the little lines on the top of my hand were plump and smooth! Delighted, I … Continue reading Glow up with Kypris: Antioxidant Dew & Beauty Elixir II
