Blissoma Botanical Beauty Rebrand: An Overview

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.

Face Creams from the Mountains: Introducing Catskill Botanicals

Does anyone else love a good face cream or balm to reach for when the weather is warm? It’s no secret here that I have a dehydrated skin type, especially in Summer, and I feel the season is fast approaching where I need layers upon layers of product just to feel comfortable in my own parched skin. It’s one reason why I’m excited to bring you today’s review on Catskill Botanicals, a line who solely produces plant-based creams, which I love to use as an occlusive last layer in my routines. The weather is starting to get QUITE warm here in the South, so I’m now clamoring for mists, serums, and nourishing creams and balms to fight dehydration.
