Link to Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Lip Plumping Gloss Review

  When I see a lip gloss that claims to have plumping effects, I'm always reminded of an incident in a Sephora that involved Danielle, her swollen/red face, and some questionable cosmetic brand's version of plumping lip gloss. Needless to say, I was a little wary of trying Vapour Organic Beauty's Elixir Plumping Lip  Gloss, regardless of how dreamy the ingredients seemed. Fortunately, I didn't have an allergic reaction after I summoned the nerve to use it. What I did have was some seriously...

The final Persephenie product I'm reviewing is the one I was most excited to try. If I had to choose, it's also probably my favorite of the three, but I'm sure I've made it painfully obvious in the past that I'm a sucker for a hot bath. Ingredients (provided at persephenie.com)- "Sodium bicarbonate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera), Certified Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Denditric Salt, and a combination of botanical essential oils and absolutes." The preliminary report that I created in the

Link to A New Monthly Feature: Not Quite Natural

While browsing the health and beauty section in Ross recently, I came up with what I think is a pretty fun idea for a new feature on the blog called Not Quite Natural. So here's the deal- once a month or so I'll post a few pictures of products I've either seen while out or read about online whose ingredients aren't quite as safe as the product's brands/labels/packaging make them seem. I'm the worst about quickly skimming ingredient lists of products that boast the words "natural" and "organic" and doing little research before making a purchase. Hopefully these posts will...

Link to Yes To Carrots Eye and Face Makeup Remover Review

    I've had my bottle of Yes To Carrots Can you C Me Eye and Face Makeup Remover for at least two years. I've had it for so long, in fact, that the company has stopped selling this product and replaced it with a Makeup Removing Cleanser. Since it is still being sold online elsewhere, I figured a review wouldn't be entirely pointless. Ingredients (provided on product packaging)- "Spring Water and Carrot Juice and Rosemary Extract, Algae...

I couldn't locate Neolone 950 in the database, but that ingredient isn't actually listed with the others on my bottle. In its place is Methylisothiazolinone, which has a hazard score...
