Link to Waxelene (The Petroleum Jelly Alternative) Review

Yeah yeah yeah, I get it. Vaseline is a miracle worker. The uses are endless. I've heard it all before, and I even moisturized with it once or twice before I knew any better. Unfortunately, as versatile as that little guy may be, it's petroleum jelly...meaning it's a petrochemical. That's a big deal breaker for me (regardless of the differing opinions on the matter), and it isn't doing any favors for the environment either. Why on earth would we want to coat our skin in something that has to...

What exactly is in a moisturizing strip?

Link to What exactly is in a moisturizing strip?

    One of the least green things about me is that I use disposable razors. It's shameful, I know, but I've been known to use the same one for at least two weeks in hopes of being less wasteful, and I simply cannot afford the upkeep that a reusable Venus or an Intuition requires. The complete deterioration of the moisturizing strip or a serious case of razor burn are usually my signals to throw out my old razor and replace it with another, and unfortunately it's usually the...

When Stevonne from Beija-Flor Naturals contacted me about trying the company's Beija-Flor Naturals Amazon Anti-Oxidant Treatment, I was intrigued.

Link to The Perfect Homemade Deodorant?

  Danielle made Angry Chicken's version of homemade deodorant a while back, and while she found the tiny heart bars (pictured above) she made using a silicone muffin pan very easy to apply, the combination of ingredients didn't eliminate and prevent her body odor like she'd hoped. Danielle promptly went back to her prior homemade deodorant, and left her unused bars in our refrigerator. I'm always up for trying new things, especially those that are health and beauty related, and Danielle knows this. So...

    1) This Balancing Cleansing Oil makes the Oil Cleansing Method seem like much less of a hassle.

Enter this Klara Coco giveaway for a chance to win a jar of your own!   3) I'll admit to having a G0d-given mustache. You've...
