OSMIA ORGANICS Haul: Lip Doctor + Soap Samples!

This year I honored Earth Day by placing my first ever order with Osmia Organics! I happened to catch their Instagram stories where founder Sarah Villafranco mentioned they plant two trees for every order on Earth Day, upping their year-round practice of planting one tree for every order placed. It’s such a neat gesture and business practice and I thought I’d take the Earth Day opportunity and finally grab a few things I’ve been wanting to try.

In this mini haul I grabbed the fan favorite Lip Doctor lip balm and a few samples including their Purely Simple Face Cream, Black Clay Facial Soap, and Pumpkin Facial Soap. Osmia kindly included two additional samples of their Oh So Detox Soap and Adzuki Nourishing Mask.

EVERYDAY MINERALS Haul – Brushes, Blushes & More

It’s been a MINUTE (years, maybe?) since I last shared some makeup around these parts! I recently started using mineral foundation again (I always come back to my good old powders) which happened to make me feel nostalgic for Everyday Minerals – one of the first indie beauty brands I tried when I discovered the online indie/clean beauty space. I thought I’d see what’s going on in their store and I found a few new items to try as well as some classic blushes that I once owned.

Half of the items in this haul were actually free gifts, believe it or not. Right now they have a great gift offer – spend $20 and choose 4 free gifts, or spend $40 and choose 7 free gifts. They let you choose your free gifts from each category of product which is awesome.

I also just joined their referral program and I’m happy to share a great discount with you all – use my link to save 20% on all products in their store!

Herbal Solutions with Blissoma Holistic Skincare

blissoma_skincare_fresh_pure_peace

I first laid eyes on the Blissoma skincare brand earlier this year and since then have had a long time inkling to try something from the brand, but wasn’t sure where I wanted to begin with the line and what I really needed (or didn’t need) in my skincare collection. In late August after being on the hunt for a cream cleanser I could use for mornings, I came across Blissoma’s Fresh Mild Rice Cleanser once again in a blog review and decided I’d go for it. I couldn’t resist trying a couple of their moisturizers and samples as well! I’ve had a good deal of time in getting to know this herbal amazingness that is Blissoma and have since used up nearly all products in this haul with great impressions and wonderful results so I’m long overdue to share these new skincare loves in my life!
