I've Been Reassembled:)

This past Saturday I was at a local fundraiser, put on by Mona Sultan, to support Syrian refugees. I donated and received this lovely package from Reassembly, a company that creates "high quality, organic and well sourced ingredients and re-assembles them into something finer, beautiful, more - through the magic of alchemy.". I love natural and organic products that use essential oils and beyond so I was delighted with this gift!

I woke up today and was excited to play! I began with purité rose, a Moroccan clay powder that forms into a paste when water is added (be careful not to add too much water!). The deep cleansing mask left my skin feeling refreshed and purified as it claims. It's also safe for sensitive skin. I used the face pad to help with the removal of the mask and I felt like it gave an additional scrub, which was nice.

I followed with a few drops of the elixer and it was lovely! The oils absorbed quickly into my skin and it felt moisturized and hydrated. The list of benefits for this elixir is endless. It's anti-aging, rich in vitamins, it protects, heals damaged skin, it nourishes new skin, etc! Check out the link to learn more.

I finished off with the lavender lip balm with soothed my lips. My lips are a touch dry as of late so the balm felt great. You can really feel the moisturizing oils:) 

All in all, I am a happy customer and I would recommend this products! They would be great gifts as the packaging is so nice:)


DIY - A White & Yellow Lifter

A super quick and easy face lifter and refresher! This egg white and lemon mixture is one of the best skin firming masks to tighten pores and get a natural face lift. So simple yet sooo effective.

Face masks made from egg whites and lemon juice will not only help to tighten the pores of your skin but will also lend to a more vibrant and youthful skin tone. The egg whites will deliver an instant facelift, while the lemons tighten pores and, because they are loaded with vitamin C, they will also help rejuvenate your skin cells. Applying this combination also aids in clearing dead skin cells and preventing wrinkles and fine lines.

The Recipe: Egg White & Lemon Lifter
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1/8 tsp of lemon juice (perhaps a little less)
Separate 2 egg whites into a bowl and whip with a whisk for 60 seconds or so. Add 1/4 of a teaspoon of lemon juice and continue to whisk until egg whites stiffen. If it's not completely stiff, don't worry. Mine was a bit runny but still gave all the benefits. Spread this egg white face mask on the face and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water.

You don't feel anything at first, but then, WHOA, you are tightening! So much so that you can hardly speak! For more DIY recipes, click here.

My New Favourite Thing is Rosy

As most of my readers know, I am all about witch hazel. The benefits are endless. For a reminder, please read my post The Witch is POWERFUL. Most of my readers also know that I love creating DIY potions that are super skin friendly. My latest love is my Rose Refresher

The benefits of Rose Essential Oil are substantial. It is an excellent hydrator for dry skin as it helps lock moisture into skin, keeping the skin feeling smooth and supple. Combine four drops with two tablespoons of coconut oil and you'll notice results instantly. Coconut oil absorbs quickly and is non greasy so it is wonderful for our faces.

Rose oil is also super high in Vitamin C which helps prevent skin cell damage. It's also anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce redness or puffiness on your skin. My favourite is rose toning. It is a natural astringent so it tightens pores and restores suppleness for a glowy complexion. 

I added four drops of rose oil to about a cup of witch hazel to create my Rose Refresher. Mine is stored in an amber bottle with an atomizer and I spritz it on my face morning and night. I'm addicted to it. It smells almost as good as it feels!
