Shea Terra Organics

 I treated myself to a few treats and also took advantage of 30% off, it took a wile to get my package and that was the only bad thing about this treat other than that I am happy as happy can be. Items were well packaged and products are stored in glass containers that's a plus and I also received a few samples with my order,  also note that this is not my first time ordering from Shea Terra.
 I got a few things for my hair that I will be reviewing over on Curly Mane so be on the look out for that, now lets get to the other treats first Frankincense Meditation sugar scrub talk about a spa experience in the shower last night. As of lately I have been very lazy and not pampering myself like I used to, the sugar scrub smelled like I was in a different country at a very expensive retreat in Morocco (a girl can dream, can't she?). This was not greasy thank you Shea Terra I did not feel like I was in a slip and slide in my shower, it also contained volcanic stone that help  in polishing my skin. At the end of my shower I was so relax, clean and very soft.
 Treat number 2 Gingered pumpkin whipped body creme need I say more, this smells so yummy and even thought its a foody scent its very grown up and not over powering, the texture I have to get use to, it rubs in on contact almost feels like your not apply any product to you skin but do not be fooled its doing its job and its very good at it. My skin was moisturized for the entire day no itchie feeling of dry skin around mid day and the scent last as well but only when I take my arms up to my nose to sniff.  
Rose water ester-c collagen regeneration facial mist I am just a sucker for hydrosol.

I think I will be giving out Shea Terra treats to everyone on my list this holiday

New Chapter, Organics, Every Woman's One Daily

Bad Picture but these are my new vitamin by New Chapter, Organics, Every Woman's One Daily. I was so sick last week and I knew it’s also because I do not take vitamin so I did some research and decided to try these. One of the reasons I purchase these were because it’s Certified Organic Multi Vitamin + Herbs + Minerals and also most of the reviews on this brand was very good.

It’s a bit expensive but sometime it’s better to buy quality and I have been taking them for a week now and the only thing to do not like about tablets are it’s just too BIG and I have a hard time getting them down on the plus side these have a smooth texture that helps with this problem. I have more energy, I do not get that funny feeling you get sometimes when you take supplement I don’t feel like I am on the edge.

Purchased at Iherb, 72 Tablets for $41.96 and also first time customer get $5 off your purchase and free shipping on US orders over $40.

Vapour Organic

Vapour Organic Beauty entered into my life at a time when I needed to simplify things so I was looking for cream eye shadows, cream blush and 2 in one lip gloss with good coverage, and I found it in this line all of the above + they are Organic. They do have a smell of sweet orange, the ingredient is above and beyond and they wear like a dream staying on all day, I did have a few problem with the cream eye shadow creasing but that is solved now I apply a primer to lid before hand and then apply the cream eye shadow with a brush (problem solved), you can blend and build the cream blushes to your heart desire, and do not get me started on the lip gloss perfect pout is all I have to say ok and yea the colors are amazing they are like liquid lipstick, they condition the lips and last long (loving these can you tell). 

Aura cream blush - in Starlet a pinkie/peach glow with silver shimmer and  Multi use in Courtesan a beautiful rose no shimmer blush this give me the perfect flush look

Mesmerize cream eyeshadow - in Lyric a nice smokey lilac (Vapour call this a warm cornflower blue), Sugar the perfect everyday golden peach, and Trick Stick in Star a platinum highlight.

Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss - in Pout a nude,Begiile perfect berry mauve, Honor a pink with gold sheen, and Discreet a deep tan nude.

Barielle Nail Polish

I have been searching for a more natural nail polish to replace my China Glaze collection, one that does not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP, seen a few but the price tag was out of my spending limit. While in T.J. Max the other night in the sale section I came across 3 Barielle protect plus color nail strengthener and decided to take a read (I read everything before purchasing). To my surprise this nail polish is formulated without Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP so why not try.

These are more nail  treatments than nail polish but they do have color to them as you can see in the pic, the colors are sheer pink, pink, natural beige, I am wearing natural beige. The texture of this treatment polish is tick and  this helps in keeping the polish on your nails. the smell is very strong, next time I will be doing my nails outside.

Overall I like them and decided to take a look at Barielle site, they had a sale going on for buy one get one half off with a extra 30% off plus free shipping over $50 I did not make it to $50. So if your looking for a some what natural nail polish (we are girls after all and we like to look pretty) and you don't wanna spend $14-$8 on a bottle of nail polish give then a try.

Not All Attar's Are Equal

I decided to test out Attar Bazaar, prices were good and reviews were great so that's a go in my book, did I have a surprise coming my way. As soon as I open the book I was like no they did not, then I started unwrapping the cute little bottles and open to take a sniff, no way on the face of this earth were these Attar's pure fragrance oil bottled and sold as Attar such a shame.

Thank you Broken Earth for the real stuff for being honest with your buyers I will never stray again.

Dr Bonner's

I cut down on my spending a bit and decided to trade in my $10 bar of organic soap for Dr. Bonner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap in Lavender, I re-discovered this liquid soap on my trip this summer as I needed to take something with me to shower and I was all out of bar soap (finally finished my box of soap). Purchased it on vita cost along with a bunch of other things and it sure did the job on my vacation, the smell is truly Lavender and gives you a great shower experience, it lathers up like a dream, your left with clean, fresh skin that is not at all dry and I only need to lather once.

A little goes a long way with this liquid soap and you can also use it around the house for other cleaning jobs, I used it the other day to clean my makeup brushes. Dr Bonner's has a wide range of scents to choose from and I have used a few in the past. At the moment Lavender Rocks

Broken Earth Naturals

For over 5,000 years Attars has been one of the most Exotic Natural Fragrance for the Soul not only does it smell good but it has a tremendous effect on the olfactory nerves of a person meaning it is a mood shifter, different Attars do different things to help elevate ones feeling. Nakh Choya Attar helps in boosting the consciousness while calming anger and panic and reduces insomnia. White Sandalwood Attar brings on closer to the divine and helps maintain a person's alertness while in meditation. It is said to be relaxing and has antimicrobial properties.

Broken Earth Naturals Attars are distilled botanical materials that are then aged in white sandalwood base.

My personal mixture and most use Attars at the moment are Nakh Choya Attar and White Sandalwood Attar.

Nakh Choya Attar


At first sniff it smells like burnt citrus leaf and twigs and I was like what the hell is this I think they sent me the wrong Attar, but then I decided to put some on and let it mingle with my chemistry and it still smelled like burnt citrus leaf and twigs but on the dry down it turns into something truly worth a second smell and then it shift into a clean smell with a little orange and a back drop of faint sandalwood and I loved it but the lasting power was not the best, comparing to the other Attars that last all day this last at most 1hr.

White Sandalwood Attars

My all time must have smell, it is not at all a strong sandalwood but a soft, clean and almost delicate scent it reminds me of something "NEW", the lasting power stays all day and it is so relaxing for when you’re having a busy day at work and your body heat sends up wafer of sandalwood to calm you down.

Nakh Choya and White Sandalwood Attar

These two mix together creates my perfect scent one that I can sit with all day and not get annoyed, one that is unique and all me. This combination together has a soft smoky, clean, and fresh scent.

What is your scent? You know like my aunt love wings perfume so every time I smell wings I remember her.

Treehouse Botanicals

Once upon a time called Dawn To Dusk, I like the old name and the new one what say you?  Ok we are not going to talk about names today but we will be talking about my custom blend perfume sprays. A fellow blogger sent me a generous sample of neroli hydrosol and let's just say I am indeed in-love it is the most delightful scent one can use to relax and just refresh. So I have been on a neroli high and requested that Dawn do some custom that incorporated neroli in the blend.

Custom I
Neroli, Citrus, Cocoa & Ambrette, just looking at this from the bottle in all its dark glory I knew it would take me to places I needed to be taken. It's young I know it needs time to mature and grow into it's own but I needed to do this review while it is fresh from the oven, it stink but a good stench one you'll wear when the moon is glowing and in the full, the sweet tart smell of orange and the rich foodie smell of cocoa with a sultry hint of ambrette. Let's revisit this one in a few weeks if I still have any left over to review.
Custom II
Neroli, Citrus, Cocoa & Vanilla
Fist of all no one does Vanilla like Dawn I don't know it's like her vanilla is on steroids, when I envision my neroli scent this was what I had brewing in my head, sunshine with a hint of sweet home made lemonade this is one intoxicating scent that just brings the neroli in full bloom, WOW I am impress.

Ambrozia, this belongs to Dawn perfume oil line up but I wanted it in a perfume spray and Dawn made it happen. Love this it is sweet girlie and just a special blend that I will not be without I also have this in the body oil, sweet jasmine and citrus mingles in this perfect creation it's so sweet its almost like you can taste it.

Now i must say i am all Neroli out.

Look how pretty the packaging is I am not a new customer of Dawns I own almost everything she has listed in her shop so if she sent my order in a plastic bag I would not care but her presentation is always on point never short of making you feel special to open a gift to yourself.

Living Libations

Fountain of Youth

Best Skin Ever
What a name,but they live up to it. The first time I used this oil cleanser that also doubles  as a moisturizer and triples and exfoliate one bottle for all your needs they say, so let's see how it works. It does and I was amazed at how soft my face was, clear and glowing so radiant and it smells yummy I got the chocolate best skin ever oil as they do carry a few others and they all look and sound so good it was very hard to just chose one so the shopper in me got the seabuckthorn best skin ever I use these oils to cleans/exfoliate depending on how much pressure you apply with a bamboo or hemp face cloth and also to moisturize skin after cleansing.

I have been looking into this  line for the longest and wanted to try all the products that they carry but the prices are on the costly side but  now I know why they do not skim on quality they bring it and set the bar high for other companies that claim to be all organic. Now that I've look into to it you get your money's worth because you get high quality products and a little goes a long way.

I love making my own products yes and the ingredient looks simple enough but I do not know what it is but I don't think it would be the same if I tried my hands at it. This product is simple divine skin loving goodness. 

This range covers all your personal needs, and also covers internal needs with serious vibrations to make you feel good and just smile for the rest of the day because you're on the Living Libations truth juice.

Another reason for not trying their line is because they are located in Canada and I was not in the mood to pay for the shipping cost, one day while searching the web I came across a blog review on living libation best skin ever and at the end she had a 10% discount off when you place a $150 purchase from LivingEarthBeauty.com I was like OK cool so when I start playing I see that Living Earth Beauty has free shipping if you spent $99 so it was on.

Skin Apotheke

Skin Apotheke
I have been  eyeing these products from last year December and I fill my cart then empty it over and over and then decided I am going to try this line and made a leap and boy was it the best leap ever.Now these are the only products that touches my face.

This is a product line that I am in love with from ETSY, and Ria is the most amazing person to work with and talk to, she must be tired now to see me popping up in her mail box with question and asking for advise on Ayurveda principles, but she is always patient and answers every question I ask. Thank you I know I have said thank you many times but I seriously mean it and guess what she is local so I get my package like yesterday.

Advance Treatment Repair Cleanser
Every night
I use this cleanser every night before bed and it is amazing, it works like a dream it cleans my pores and my face does not feel stripped after I wash it off but its soft and ready to receive nourishment. I wet my face and work in a small amount really massaging it into my skin taking time to appreciate and acknowledge what I am doing , then I jump in the shower and rinse it off after my bath.

It has some serious properties and ingredient, it exfoliates and brighten skin with the help of dead sea mud, sea minerals, sugar cane and lemon essential oil. It calms and tightens pores with roman chamomile.

Clarifying Ubtan Cleanser @ Radiant Mask
Once per week
Mild but effective Exfoliation duo, do this once per week and trust me you'll be like "WOW" touching your face every time because it is soft (Keep your hands out of your face) and you are going to glow with radiance and your skin will be brighter. 

With herbs like Turmeric it is a natural healer for skin conditions such as eczema, acne, dry skin and psoriasis, Neem detoxifying and  purifying the skin, Methi seed to gentle polish skin to perfection and Ashwagandha with its anti-inflammatory effects for skin prone to acnee lots more great herbs pack into this scrub and when you mix it with the Radiant face mask the magic happens with green papaya extract, aloe, grape juice, sugar cane, and pineapple extracts, you know whats up.

Organic Fabulous Face Vitalizing Mask
Every weekend
Yummy pumpkin step one to exfoliate, detox and reduce dark spots, you know you need to exfoliate well I know I do. I have oily skin and no matter how many times I wash my skin at the end of the day its like I never washed it in the morning. I treat it the gentle way by exfoliating and nourishing with serums and yes oil serums, be gentle people and show your skin some love.

Blueberry step two to firm and tone, and restore vitamins and minerals. Now after you exfoliate don't you think its only fair to nourish and feed you skin give it a drink of blueberry juice, cranberry juice and Aloe.

I am amazed after every treatment and I love my skin all over again, have you ever had a love affair with your skin you should try it some time. Wink Wink

This is part one of a three part review, next weekend will be about Skin Apotheke facial serums.
Much Love
