If you’ve been thinking of jumping into the whole natural beauty bandwagon but afraid to spend too much moolah too early in the game, you might want to check out Human Nature. Aside from the clever name (how can you forget “Human Nature”?), the affordable price point was what drew me to check out this brand. Although I’m guilty of indulging in luxury organic beauty brands, I’m still a bargain hunter at heart.
Review | Affordable Mineral Makeup by Human Nature: Perfect Glow Mineral Blush and 100% Natural Hydrating Lipstick
Yesterday morning, I woke up feeling so ‘toxic’. I was tired, restless and moody and I kept sneezing all over the place. I was dragging myself aimlessly around the house. I knew I needed more than my usual green smoothie so I decided to whip up a simple pick-me-up drink: a Detoxifying Coco Lemonade. Read on to learn how you can create this simple and refreshing tonic!
Review and Giveaway | The Simplicity in ecostore’s Coconut and Vanilla Body Wash & Light Moisturizing Lotion
ecostore’s neat packaging and product range captured my love for simplicity. It offers a range of ‘essentials’ from personal to home care products. It is not an organic brand but it doesn’t use common nasties like sulfates, petrochemicals and synthetic dyes and fragrances. It’s also free from Genetically Engineered ingredients (a concept that is new to me outside food) and is a cruelty free brand.
Reckless sun exposure during my younger years is one of my deepest regrets now that I’m in my late 20s. I knew about the dangers of sun exposure long ago but I just never cared. I thought my skin was going to be 16 forever. But what’s done is done. I might not be able to rewind time but I’m now a lot wiser — by that I mean I’m now a sunscreen hoarder. That counts as wisdom, right?
Luckily, I found a few that sort of worked for me and my skin. Here are my thoughts on five of them:
While a lot of people were probably rocking a Saturday night out, I was locked up in my toilet trying to pull some stubborn blackheads on my nose. After a grueling 15-min battle with pesky oil beads, I knew the night was far from over. I still needed to pamper my skin with a face mask to help it heal. Now, who said spending Saturday night at home was boring?
I don’t usually wake up on a Wednesday morning and say to myself “Time to make a wish list!” I rarely really lust after products and that’s why I can’t do regular wishlist posts. So although I’m publishing this on a Wednesday, these products are actually a compilation of my wishlists for the past few months. Well, you gotta admit, Wishlist Wednesday sounds a lot better than Biannual Wishlist.
Silk Naturals is not a place for the weak-hearted cosmetics addict. Its affordable and extensive collection of mineral makeup makes it hard to resist buying more than what you can actually use. Up to this day, I’m still shamefully keeping a dusty box of never-been-opened pots of eye shadows under my bed. Thankfully, these Kisser Slicker Lip Gloss sticks are so practical for everyday wear that they managed to see the light of day.
I was on a flight last Saturday and since it was a relatively unpopular schedule (midnight), I was quite sure lights would be dimmed throughout most of the trip to give passengers the chance to sleep. With few witnesses, most of them in snooze land while the rest, hopefully, had poor eye sight in the dark, I decided to finally do what I never had the guts to do for the last couple of times I was on a plane ride: Do a face mask treatment.
