masks-lifestyle-1-extended

Osea is one of my favorite non-toxic vegan skincare companies, and they were kind enough to send me some more products to sample on account of their Labor Day promotion kicking off!

I just finished a bath session with their white algae mask (my fav! I have reviewed it before) and my skin is very happy with the results. I followed the mask with their sea vitamin boost and the hyaluronic sea serum for moisturizing.Then I took a nap and happily drifted away into dreamland while my skin repaired itself.

EVXO x The Plantbased Jetsetter

So EVXO was good enough to send me some vegan, cruelty free makeup to try, and I am OBSESSED.

This makeup is now a staple in my makeup bag and travels with me everywhere. I was given brow pomade, two creamy lipsticks, and the best foundation ever (which subsequently smells like some sort of delicious cookie) to try.

Here are a few looks I tried with these products; I found that they all applied quite even and smooth; the brow pomade took a few applications to get right because my brows are light, but that was mostly user error from me not using the right brush.

Check out my looks and go pick up these products – I couldn’t give a more glowing (see what I did there) recommendation!!


Foundation color: Bisque
Lipsticks: Temptress and Coral Kisses
Brow Pomade: Light

FoodFlo – a vegan delivery service that slays!

 

Sooo I had the wonderful opportunity to try a subscription to FoodFlo – a vegan food delivery service that delivers to CA, NV, and AZ!

FoodFlo boasts delicious, whole food plant based recipes via French gourmet chef Florence Bertheau.

For more than 20 years, chef Flo cooked for her many students and celebrity clients the way she had learned in her native France, rich in butter and creamy sauces, heavy on meats, eggs and dairy. Then a paradigm shift happened. She began to see how certain foods had a profoundly positive effect on the health of her autistic daughter and on Flo herself. She created her own food pyramid based on three principles: Vegan, gluten-free and alkaline pH-balanced. Menus began evolving. Flo started using dense plant-based hypo-allergenic foods such as sprouted grains, nuts, vegetarian proteins, fresh greens and produce from local farms.

Flo’s journey of ‘health through food’ balances her company values of fresh and raw food nutrition with social and environmental consciousness; being aware of how what we eat affects the earth and all animals that live on it. Purchasing seasonal and local, she is able to provide the best quality products that are cost efficient, reduce the carbon footprint, all cooked with the intention for your good health.

I tried a week’s worth of menu items, and felt absolutely amazing afterwards. The meals were hearty but not heavy, and all of the ingredients were incredibly fresh. I especially enjoyed their handmade snack bars, pictured above!

They packed everything to perfection, as well – the meals came cold and fresh and ready to go. I was very impressed.

I highly recommend this service, especially if you don’t have time to meal prep during the week! You’ll have all the benefits of an organic, gluten-free vegan chef for a great price and a minimum of fuss.

Thanks for the trial, FoodFlo! You have a fan in me. 🙂

Earth Science knocks it out of the park with their new ‘Ceramide Care’ haircare line!

I have always enjoyed Earth Science’s plant based beauty care products, from their minty face masks, to their serums and enzyme peels.

Imagine my delight, then, to be able to sample most of their new plant based Ceramide Care shampoo and conditioner line!

Transform & revitalize your hair with the science of plant-based ceramides. Our exclusive Ceramide Complex repairs the hair cuticle, restoring moisture for softer, smoother, healthier hair. All-natural, sulfate free & color safe formulas add volume, balance oil or tame curls & frizz.

These shampoos and conditioners more than delivered; I used each type for two weeks at a time to get a complete picture of how each product worked.

I would have to say my favorite duo was the Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner.

…fortified with Rice Protein, which has a special ability to bind with oil. Removes just the right amount without drying or stripping, adding natural shine and highlights to hair. Safe for color treated hair. Sulfate free. All-natural orange-cream grapefruit fragrance. Neutral pH for daily use | Vegan | Gluten Free

My hair felt smooth, and looked the most shiny and revitalized after the two weeks with this particular product. And that is what it is supposed to do – strengthen and add shine.

Included in the ingredients are rice protein and panthenol in order to balance oil & restore radiance. I have combination skin, so my scalp can get flaky if I don’t use the right product!

…smoothes and softens wavy, curly and frizz-prone hair. Infused with a rainforest complex of Shea Butter, Jojoba, Argan, Passionfruit, and Açaí Oils to detangle and deeply hydrate. Leaves hair shiny, silky and manageable. Safe for color treated hair. Sulfate free. All-natural sweet almond fragrance. Neutral pH for daily use | Vegan | Gluten Free

My second favorite was the curl and frizz control duo; I noticed a difference in my hair’s sheen with these babies, too, and loved the scent they emitted in particular.

No flaky scalp after using this duo! Joy!

…adds texture and volume without weighing hair down. Fortified with Golden Barley Protein and Panthenol to strengthen and hydrate. Leaves hair looking and feeling fuller, softer and more radiant. Safe for color treated hair. Sulfate free. All-natural vanilla-ginger cardamom fragrance. Neutral pH for daily use | Vegan

Last but not least, the Volumizing Duo!

I loved the fragrance they used in these, but I did see a little build up after using them for two weeks. I had to use the shampoo twice and scrub hard to make sure I had the shampoo rinsed out properly, so something in it makes it stick to the scalp a little more than the others!

Nevertheless, I love the ingredients and would recommend the Volumizing duo to anyone who wasn’t prone to build up like me.

CeramideCare

All in all, I loved this line, and would recommend it to anyone searching for a solid haircare regimen.

PS: They also have an unscented duo, pictured above, but I have not tried it yet. 🙂
