Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser

Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser

If you wear make up a important part of application is obviously your brushes. I only really started wearing make up in the past few years and I didn’t realize there was so much to learn. While I was having my make up done at a friends house recently she brought out her tool box, as I like to think of it, and then started spritzing this stuff on her brushes. I always thought it was a major no no to get your brushes wet unless you were going to let them sit for days to dry off. This is when my friend explained to me that she cleans her brushes regularly especially before she uses them on anyone else. The spritz she was using was indeed a brush cleanser that she would spray lightly on the brushes, wipe them on a paper towel and let them sit for a little while to make sure they were all dried. I never heard of this before but then I realized I have never cleaned my brushes which made me skeeve a bit.
When I got home I did some research to find a respectible brand of organic brush cleanser if it existed and so I did. Afterglow Cosmetics has the Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser!  The cleanser is only $15 and includes safe ingredients that won’t ruin your brushes or face.  The Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser was something I needed to try immediately because I was now too scared to use my makeup brushes without it.  It never occurred to me that this was something you should do.  Using Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser will help your brushes last longer and if you have a favorite brush you don’t want to part with Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser will help you keep it fresh and clean.

Product Info:
Afterglow’s Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser is the natural way to disinfect your brush collection and keep your skin clean and clear.
Cosmetic brushes can build up oil and bacteria, which can contribute to skin irritation and acne. We recommend that you disinfect your brushes every few days and wash them every few weeks. Avoid makeup and bacteria buildup with our all natural, non-toxic, quick drying, spray on Organic Lavender Brush Cleanser. It’s a quick drying alternative to disinfecting brushes between washes.

Lush Almond & Coconut Smoothie

Almond & Coconut Smoothie

Almond & Coconut Smoothie

I am not sure if you have tried LUSH products but besides smelling awesome it is a great company that respects the end user as much as it does the environment. LUSH’s Creamed Almond & Coconut Shower Smoothie wash not only smells amazing but is incredibly soothing to the skin. Here are some interesting facts about why the Creamed Almond & Coconut Shower Smoothieis great for your skin. Oh, and did I mention this is a vegan product?? Have you ever tried LUSH’s Creamed Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie or any of their other products? Let us know how you feel about LUSH.

About the Ingredients:

Vanilla pods are made up of sugars, vanillin, fats and mineral salts. When applied topically, the sugars in vanilla act as a humectant. The humectant action also forms a barrier on skin, which prevents moisture loss. Vanilla extract adds the beautiful vanilla scent to the product.
Creamed Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie is for days when your skin is in need of care and attention. We like it best for the shower, but if you haven’t got one, you can stand up in the bath to smooth the fluffy, moisturizing and creamy soap all over you.
This Smoothie will scent your skin with jasmine, ylang and vanilla, and the moisturizing coconut and almond oils make your body silky soft.
Almond oil is unscented and excellent for the skin. It is emollient, demulcent and nutritious with a high vitamin E content. It is smooth to apply and leaves a silky feel to the skin

Some of Lush’s Green Feelings:

We take our commitment to this seriously. Since LUSH began, our founders have been conscious of how our products interact with the environment. We have always used creative and innovative solutions to make a positive impact on the planet. Our invention of the first-ever solid shampoo bar is testament to this practice.

Anti-Frizz Hair Lotion

Anti-Frizz Hair Lotion

Just Natural Skin Care’s breakdown of frizzy hair and the problems that cause it:
Frizzy dry hair is under stress from the environment,
hard water, cleansers or blow dryers that may weaken it by removing
moisture from your hair. Weak hair becomes drier, dull, & frizzy.
This is when split ends can occur with breakage.
Most hair lotions use harsh chemicals to make your hair look and feel
good but they don’t help improve your hair. You
don’t get the intended results and your hair suffers for it.
Just Natural Skin Care’s natural hair lotion for frizz feeds and nourishes your hair with real natural ingredients that add value to improve your
hair each time you use the anti-frizz lotion.
Just Natural Skin Care’s Anti-Frizz Lotion is light weight and dries to the touch for a salon look finish with soft shiny hold that controls your frizz.

Anti-Frizz Hair Lotion’s Ingredients:

Sweet Orange Blossom Hydrosol, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Olive Fruit Oil, Shea Butter, Banana Fruit Powder Extract, Avocado Fruit Oil, Burdock Root Extract, Jojoba Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Mango Butter, Essential Oil of Sweet Orange, Essential Oil Patchouli, Vegetable Emulsifier, Fig Fruit Powder Extract, Essential Oil of Geranium, Vitamin E, Arnica Extract, Helichrysum Essential Oil.

Vegan Wine Trio

Vegan Wine Trio

Vegan Wine Trio

When I drink I always try to use organic or vegan alcohol and at the very least I research which companies I purchase from to make sure they are at the very least responsible. This Vegan Wine Trio can make a great gift for a New Years party, to any dinner party or event. This wine trio contains a 2006 Cabernet-Carmenere, Nuevo Mundo (Chile), a 2008 Côtes-du-Rhône, Domaine des Cèdres, and a 2007 Entre-Deux-Mers Château Laubarit. You can bring this set with you on a picnic or to an evening bbq when weather permits.

For those of you that are unsure what a vegan wine was here is a small definition:
Many wines are made using animal-derived ingredients to help during the processing of the wine. These ingredients are filtered out of the wine before it is sold, the use of animal ingredients in the processing of the wine makes them unfit for consumption by vegans. This filtration or fining is done to end up with a clearer, brighter, better tasting and more presentable wine.

Have you tried vegan or organic wine or liquor before? Do you notice a difference? Fill us in on how you feel about organic alcohol we would love to hear from you!!
