When I was in Toronto last month, my high school friend and owner of Wildcraft Care invited me for a tour of her new studio and gifted me all the products in her line in exchange for my open and honest review. Her studio is absolutely gorgeous! I was so proud of her and extremely happy to share in her success. Who would have predicted that she would become a natural beauty product developer and I would become a beauty blogger! Fast forward to present day, and you have yourself the perfect partnership!

A few weeks ago, I switched up my skincare routine to test out a new Korean skincare line. Belif uses an old apothecary approach for all its products and promises a clean and natural experience. Each container displays a guarantee that products do not contain artificial dies, fragrances, preservatives, mineral oils, or animal byproducts (vegan). The products are also free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates, preservatives known to be bad for the environment and linked to cancer.
Nothing excites me more than testing face cream and moisturizers this time of the year, because my skin is so dry from fluctuating temperatures. I have had a chance to dabble in all the products that were sent my way, and hope to share an honest review to help you with your quest for a new natural skin care routine.
Finally, a skin care routine tailored for me. I have been using the new Idealia skincare by Vichy line for a week now, and it’s too amazing not to share. Sometimes I feel ridiculous using age defying products, maybe it’s because I am blessed with healthy skin, or maybe because I am in denial of my age (33 isn’t old, is it?). Regardless, I don’t want to use old lady cream just yet. I appreciate that most lines have a “protect skin now, enjoy it later” attitude, but it makes me feel old to think that wrinkles are in my not-so-distant future.
Makeup remover is a personal thing. Some like it milky, some like it creamy, some like it oily, some don’t clean their makeup off before going to bed…you catch my drift. Disclaimer: I am guilty of the latter from time to time. I know, it’s gross, but I’m lazy.
