Aftelier Face Elixir Reviews

Aftelier Face Elixir

Naturals Week April 22-April 29th

My skin has changed. It’s been very dehydrated and dry. My usual skincare is not working for me now. Inspired by Beauty Huile and Eyeliner on a Cat, I’ve decided to start using oil-based facial moisturizers at night. Many years ago I only used oils as moisturizers. I’m such a product flirt. I moved on and starting using whatever new shiny thing there was out there. Why did I ever stop using oils? My… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Strange Invisible Perfumes Fire and Cream Review

Review of Strange Invisible Natural Perfume in Fire & Cream

I have limited Strange Invisible Perfumes exposure. I’ve been too busy dwelling into DSH Perfumes natural blends and the less expensive thrills of LUSH. Finally, I’ve gotten around to sampling the natural perfume line, Strange Invisible. There’s a few that I like, Fire and Cream being one of them.

Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser Review

Burt's Bees Orange Cleanser

Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser is a rich, glycerin based cleanser with a “Vaseline” like texture. It smells of orange oil which kind of reminds me of furniture polish but in a good clean way, not a gross chemical way. The cleanser is enriched with olive oil, aloe vera, rosemary and orange oil. It is deep cleansing without leaving the skin dehydrated feeling. Actually afterward my skin feels “nourished”. I have normal/combination skin (towards the drier side) and this stuff does a great job. It… Continue reading | 2 Comments
