I am very obsessed with all things Patchouli & Buriti right now. The scent is so incredible, it’s just the perfect blend and I am using the body lotion every day, the soap in the shower, and the deodorant daily too. Speaking of the deodorant, it’s made with non-GMO glycols from corn and does NOT contain aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, triclosan or silicones.
The “certified organic Shea Butter used in all Nubian Heritage products is ethically sourced from women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana and helps protect sensitive underarm skin.”
I’ve featured Nubian Heritage in the past and I really like this brand. The products are gentle and never irritate my sensitive skin, they smell wonderful and are made with oils and butters.
There are so many products to choose from and I love that they are affordable and easy to find online or in the store.
I am always searching for a good eyelash serum, lashes tend to thin out a little as we age (I just read it might be from lack of magnesium) so I like to take special care of my lashes. I put Plume to the test for the past several weeks and have noticed a thickness in my lashes that was not there before!
Plume eyelash serum is made with natural ingredients such as aloe vera, castor oil, vitamin E, and honey extract just to name a few of the standout ingredients. There’s nothing here that irritates my eye area which is very sensitive.
You apply it to your lash line or brows every night and allow the product to work as you sleep. It took about three weeks to see a difference but I feel my lashes look thicker and seem to be falling out less.
Here’s the full ingredient list:
Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Tussilago Farfara (Coltsfoot) Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Extract, Cinchona Succirubra Bark Extract, Water, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Glycerin, Honey Extract, Prunus Amygdalus (Sweet Almond) Oil, Sucrose Laurate, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Nasturtium Officinale (Watercress) Extract, Tropaeolium Majus (Indian Cress) Extract, Xanthan Gum, Coleus Forskohlii Root Oil, Carya Ovata (Hickory) Bark Extract.
Very natural and nourishing. I love it and highly recommend to those looking to give their lashes a boost! Go here for more information.
I also tried Body Merry Lash & Brow Elixir, another non-toxic lash product for longer, thicker lashes and brows. Instead of applying to the root of the lashes like you do with Plume, you apply with a brush to lashes and brows.
This one contains:
Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber Hydrosol), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe), Algae Extract, Camellia Oleifera (Japanese Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetapeptide-7, Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture Extract (Plant Stem Cells), Biotin, dl-Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Cucurbito Pepo (Pumpkin Seed Oil), Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed Oil), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Caprylyl Capryl Glucoside, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20
The serum is thin and dries quickly. Again, I use this in the evenings before bed and let it work its magic while I sleep. Lately, I have been using this on my lashes and loving how they seem to be healthier looking, both thicker and a little longer.
Body Merry offers many products besides this lash and brow elixir. You can go here to learn more!
Moon Juice is a neat little store both online and in person. Here’s what you need to know:
Moon Juice represents a holistic lifestyle that goes far beyond juices, milks, and snacks. It’s a healing force, an etheric potion, a cosmic beacon for those seeking out beauty, wellness and longevity.
I must get to the shop in Silver Lake because it seems like a place I would love. I’ve been to the Moon Juice website a lot and am so intrigued.
Moon Juice offers tonics and elixirs and I got to try samples of Brain Dust and Spirit Dust. Check it out:
Brain Dust is “an adaptogenic elixir to maintain healthy systems for superior states of clarity, memory, creativity, alertness and a capacity to handle stress.”
Wow, do I ever need help handling stress! This one is made from Astragalus, Lion’s Mane, Shilajit, Maca, Rhodiola, Organic Stevia, Ginkgo.
The Spirit Dust helps you “unwind, expand peaceful awareness and align with bliss.” In other words, its for when you want to relax.
It contains Goji, Reishi, Longan, Astragalus, Salvia, Organic Stevia and reminds me a little of a caramel flavor. You can mix it in anything, I just put it in water and stirred it up.
I personally love it and enjoy nature’s remedies most of all. If I can avoid medication, I will do so and reach for something like these from Moon Juice. Check out some of their other products by going here!
