5 Things I’m Loving… (#2)

IMG_0492

I’m back with my “5 Things I’m Loving” segment.  You can check out my first 5 Things I’m Loving post here if you missed it! This will now be a regular theme on my blog. Winter is here and with the weather being so much cooler I have many new products that I’ve integrated into my daily routine.

Evanhealy Whipped Shea Butter with Olive Leaf – This whipped butter has made me fall in love with oil-cleansing. I’ve always loved cleansing my face with oils but now that I have tried this whipped butter-like heaven I am a little obsessed. I use this three times a week and it keeps my skin hydrated, plump and clear of any blemishes. I am deeply in love with this product. Before I even ran out of my sample I purchased a full size and I can tell you right now before I get half-way through my full-size jar I will be repurchasing again. I will never go without this product, especially in the cooler months. Oh and the smell of this? Like a freshly baked (gluten free-for me) vanilla frosted cupcake! I couldn’t take it one day, so I actually tasted a bit of the cream on my tongue! It’s that pure. However, nowhere on Evan Healy’s site does this say that the whipped shea butter is  for “ingesting”…just saying!  I will have a full review of this product + more Evanhealy products (which my skin has been LOVING lately) very soon!

Konjac Sponge with French Pink ClayAfter using an oil-based cleanser to remove my makeup I  then use my new Konjac Sponge. This is such a wonderful product. I have both the pink and red  sponges and I think the pink is my favorite but I honestly love both. They exfoliate gently without ever irritating my incredibly sensitive skin and I can even use it to exfoliate my eye area which is so delicate and prone to eczema and dry patches in the winter. This has been the secret to keeping my skin clearer and assisting the  oils and moisturizers to apply and penetrate  so much better.

Miyu Beauty Hydrate Mi Tea – This is hands down my new favorite tea. I literally drink this every single day without fail. It’s absolutely delicious and sweet enough that I don’t find myself needing to add any honey. It contains Green Rooibos (contains nine types of flavonoids that aggressively fight free radicals so that complexions will look younger, longer), Goji Berries (naturally rich in vitamin C, necessary to promote collagen production to help keep skin smooth), Rose Petals (used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to improve circulation and soothe from within) and Snow Pear Essence and Candied Pearls for sweetness.

Lotus Wei Inner Peace Serum – This serum and every other  product from the “Inner Peace” Collection is helpful for high levels of stress, anxiety, nervousness, fear, lack of confidence and is helpful for experiencing deep peace, calm, confidence, comfort + contentment; strength + assuredness during times of high-stress. I love to use this oil-based serum on my hands and feet before bed every night. I also use this on my legs and I gently massage the oil into my calves, ankles, feet and hands. This is an incredibly relaxing routine that I look forward to doing every night. The calming and grounding scents of Lavender, Vetiver, Geranium and Allspice help to calm me and the lovely oils leave my skin feeling incredibly smooth.

Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Oil - I am so, so happy with this face oil. I recently purchased it at my local Co-Op.  I was curious to try more from the Damascus Rose collection so I also picked up the Damascus Rose Beauty Balm which I will talk about soon (it’s wonderful!!) but the Rose Face Oil in particular has stood out to me the most. I recently battled some hormonal acne which left me with hyperpigmentation. This oil has helped to diminish redness after just days of use. I use this every night on my face and it’s enough moisture that I don’t need any added creams. It smells and feels beautiful, and it’s quickly becoming one of my new favorite oils of all-time.

Review | Badger Seabuckthorn Apricot and Pomegranate Antioxidant Hair Oil

495

I mentioned this hair oil in my latest Current Haircare Routine blog post. I received some messages regarding the oil (how I use it, how it works for my hair,etc). I have used other oils in my hair before like Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Jojoba Oil. I love to use all three of those oils to deep-condition my hair but was interested to try Seabuckthorn Oil.

The Ingredients are quite impressive:

Ingredients: *Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic Jojoba) Oil, *Helianthus Annuus (Organic Sunflower) Oil, *Prunus Armeniaca (Organic Apricot) Oil, *Punica Granatum (Organic Pomegranate) Oil, CO2 Extracts of *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Organic Seabuckthorn) and *Rosa Canina (Organic Rosehip), Essential Oils of *Lavandula Angustifolia (Organic Lavender), *Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Organic Sweet Orange), *Pelargonium Graveolens (Organic Rose Geranium), and Tocopherol (Sunflower Vitamin E). * = Certified Organic

Benefits:

  • Seabuckthorn Oil protects cells from oxidative damage and aids in collagen production (rich in Vitamins A, B, C, E, & K).
  • Apricot Oil easily penetrates the hair cuticle, delivering nutrition to dry and damaged hair (rich in Vitamins A, C, & E).
  • Pomegranate Oil contains high levels of antioxidants, and also promotes regeneration and strengthening of hair (rich in Vitamins B and C).

Description: Treat your hair to vitamin and antioxidant-rich oils and extracts, and watch the shine and luster return to overworked hair. We’ve selected our most powerful oils to deliver naturally occurring vitamins A, B, C, E, and K to nourish and replenish hair. Seabuckthorn and Pomegranate promote hair strength and elasticity, and Apricot is a potent emollient, imparting moisture and shine. Rosehip possesses regenerative properties, helping hair to return to its healthiest state.

Directions for use:
Step 1: Apply oil evenly to clean, dry hair. Amount will vary depending on hair type and length.
Step 2: Massage oil into hair and scalp. Work from the roots to the tips. Use a comb or your fingers to ensure even distribution.
Step 3: Allow oil to soak into hair for 1 hour or overnight. (Tip: use an old towel to protect your linens.)
Step 4: Shampoo and condition, then style as usual.

My Thoughts: I was particularly tempted to try out the Badger Seabuckthorn Hair Oil after reading many reviews on it. I have been a big fan of Badger ‘s products for years now and think they are one of the most trustworthy and clean brands out there today. I also think their products are very affordable and easily accessible which is always a bonus. I have tried many of their skincare products but never their haircare products so I was excited to try a sample size of this oil. I wanted to use this oil enough times before giving my full and honest opinions on the results and I have been consistently using it for more than a month now. I like to use this oil once a week for the perfect deep-treatment for my hair. I will either leave it on for a few hours or overnight and after washing the oil out and drying my hair, it instantly has a beautiful sheen to it. My hair has also been way softer than usual and just looks healthier. This oil is by far my newest favorite to use!

Over all I think this hair oil is a must have for anyone who is interested in treating their luscious locks to some good and clean hair-loving oils! Also due to the delicious scents in this oil it’s also a wonderful nighttime aromatherapy for the senses!
