Bloomiss Naturals Review + An Instagram Giveaway!

B-l-o-o-m-i-s-s: A word that encompasses a (blooming) beautiful woman (miss) when she is striving to be her very best…

Bloomiss Naturals, a Canadian aromatherapy and skincare + beauty line founded by the lovely Crystal, was created and inspired by two specific reasons: her love for natural and organic products (trying to eliminate toxic products from her daily life) and for the calming effect that creating and making had on her. Crystal struggled with infertility and the stressful emotions that come along with it and says that having a Type A personality has her in a mode of “go, go, go” with never being able to shut her mind off, so the creation process and her actual aromatherapy products themselves have been a big change on her life. Bloomiss offers a decent selection of skincare and body care including day and night moisturizers, a serum, a face mask, body lotions and scrubs, super pretty lip glosses, and range of aromatherapy rollerballs.

EMPTIES V.1 – Stark Skincare, H IS FOR LOVE + More

It’s been a hot minute (more like a hot year) since I’ve shared some empties! I used to combine empties and mini-hauls in my monthly “green beauty journal” posts, but I’ve since stopped posting those because I don’t try many new products (or quickly use up products) to have content for monthly posts. This will be my new way of sharing empties, breaking them down into short volumes.

Chronicles of a Plant Lab: April Boxwalla Beauty Review

I’ll go ahead and spoil this whole review by saying that this box is one of the best ones yet curated by Boxwalla. I know it’s a cliche statement (and every blogger is most likely using this same phrase, albeit TRUE!), but I swear that each box keeps getting better and better with their selection of plant-based skincare. This one marries everything that I appreciate in a skincare product: science backed ingredients with clinical effectiveness, beneficial herbs, sleek and sturdy packaging, and a founder that strives to bring only the best to their customers. This April, Boxwalla reunites us with Twelve Beauty.

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!
