Summer Favourites

Over the last few years, instead of talking the talk, I’ve decided to walk the walk when it comes to eliminating toxins from my body. Eating clean, free of processed garbage has been a big step that is now apart of my daily life. The next step is eliminating toxins from my daily beauty routine.

I wanted to share with you the products I’ve switched to.

Shampoo:

I use Lush’s solid shampoo called Karma Komba a couple times a week and I’m hooked. I switched to solids last year, for ease of travel. But another perk is that they last WAY longer than liquid because you add the water to the bar when you lather it up in the shower!

Conditioner:

I LOVE Lush’s solid conditioner called Jungle. It smells AMAZING and leaves your hair feeling clean, soft, and doesn’t leave behind those nasty sulphates! UH MAZE ING

Beachy Sea-Spray:

Lush’s Sea Spray Hair Mist changed my summer! I love wavy hair but I hate having to curl it, especially in the hot summer time. This summer, I got in the habit of washing my hair, braiding it, spritzing the sea spray into my tresses and letting it set! The end result was beachy waves, like I’d spent the day at the beach! Plus it also smells amazing!

Moisturizer:

Obviously I’m a huge fan of Lush’s Karma products. If you’ve never smelled Karma Kream, get to your nearest Lush ASAP. It’s life changing! It smells fresh like flowers and clean like soap. When I’m feeling down, a wife of Karma Kream and I’m feeling brighter.

Make-up Remover:

Straight up olive oil. Before you think I’ve gone of the deep end, take a cotton ball with some olive oil on it and try and take off some mascara! I dare ya! You’ll be instantly converted! It’s gentle and natural!

Feminine Hygiene Products:

A good friend posted an article on Facebook about the chemicals found inside tampons and pads and it got me wondering why I’d never questioned whats inside something I put inside me. It never occurred to me to question it but after some digging, I found a product I can trust. Natracare doesn’t use harsh bleaches to whiten their products and they only use cotton. I’ve been using them for quite some time now and I’ve noticed their absorbency is even better than the others, which makes up for their price tag, which is a few more dollars a box than their competitors.
