My AM Skincare Routine + Products in Rotation – 08.2019

Hello, friends! I can’t remember the last time I shared a look into what my skincare routines look like so I thought it’d be fun to overview my AM and PM skincare routines + collections this week. I like to switch up the skincare I’m using on an as-needed basis so my routines do change day to day/week to week, and the routine I share today might not even be what I use tomorrow, but it’s a general idea of the kind of minimal routines I have been using.

August BOXWALLA Beauty Review: HEART OF GOLD SKINCARE

“The Secret Symphony of Skincare”

I am exceptionally excited to share the contents of this month’s Boxwalla because it is showcasing a brand that is much coveted around the green/plant-based community over on Instagram. It’s one of those brands that you see on another’s feed and you’re just like, what it this and why do I already want to throw all of my money at them for the entire line? Exquisite plant-based formulas, unique product names, and rich tones are the visuals you’re immediately inundated with when you see this line – just take a look at their shop! It’s a sensory experience before you’ve even tried a product.

REVIEW: Blissoma’s Photonic Light Shifting Sunscreen + Moisturizer

Ahhh, sunscreen. That one thing that a lot (maybe even most?) of us don’t like, yet year round we have to talk about it and wear it rain or shine. Even some of the best ones are still like, “it’s okay, but I STILL have to wear it and I’m not happy about it because it’s another icky layer.” The best sunscreens I’ve tried in the past were on that level, in that they were just okay but I’d definitely rather wear nothing than to have that nice titanium dioxide + zinc layer that feels like it interferes with life.

All of this grumpy sunscreen talk leads me to today’s review and how I FINALLY, miraculously, no longer have those sunscreen woes thanks to this awesome one that Blissoma (one of my all time favorite skincare brands, yeah!) launched late last year. I’m not kidding – I freaking love this sunscreen and I am thrilled to share my review after many months of testing. Blissoma did kindly offer me the opportunity to test Photonic when it launched, but I would like to mention that Blissoma became one of my favorite brands through my own discovery of their products and I did purchase all past Blissoma products shared here on the blog with my own money.

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.
