The Indie Lee Energize Body Wash came in perfect time because we got a ton of beauty lovers asking for the perfect body wash. This gentle coconut based cleanser is rich in protein, vitamins, and essential oils that revitalize, while stimulating the senses and promoting the clarity of thought that you need to take on the day.
You haven't truly experienced the Roseau Toner by Katari until you've known it's story. Directly sourced from the Delta of the river Nile in Egypt, Katari prides itself on elemental ingredients. Simplicity is key, when it comes to clean beauty, and Katari understands that if it takes 10 lbs of rose petals to make just 1 gallon of the best rose water in the world, then the best rose water in the world is what you will get. I apply this toner everyday with a cotton round, either under my makeup or to set my makeup in place for the day and I want to call this product a crush, but it's more like a personal obsession now. So what do you say? would you like to try the best rose water in the world?
Meet your hair's new best friend! Terre & Botanique's Scalp Balm is not like your mama's, sisters or like any you've tried before. Including this scalp balm to my routine helped during those breaks in between washes where I would worry about the health of my hair, and if it was getting enough moisture. This balm quickly put those worries to rest, with hair nourishing ingredients like blackcurrant seed to thicken hair, and blood orange, to stimulate hair growth. Between you and I, let's say wash day can wait, and for good reason.
For the budgetnista in the crowd, I see you girl! I definitely had you in mind when I choose The Shortcut Overnight Facial Peel by Versed. Now personally, I don't do shortcuts when it comes to good skin; I mean we use products for at least a week, to be able to even write full reviews, but this little tube didn't need a week. In 3 days, I had visibly brighter skin, after 2 overnight uses. This is one corner I would cut, and at a price you can't beat? It's a steal.
So I tried OY-L's Body Butter and what I noticed was the how quickly it absorbed into my skin - which is pretty much expected of most good body butters, but what had me crushing was the scent of Tiare Lime. Gasp! Only one of the 6 gorgeous scents of the OY-L's 3oz body butters, so while you're judging me for being addicted to the new scent of my body, try it for yourself, and see if you'll be able to resist.
Imagine what life was like in Egypt 1000 years ago. What the women ate, and what traditional products the women used to stay looking so young and beautiful, it felt like they didn't age. With Katari Pomegranate seed oil, you don't have to imagine anymore. Each cold-pressed bottle of dried pomegranate seed, will transport you to the farms in Egypt's Delta of the Nile, and the benefits of the secrets to premature aging. Besides the beautiful glass bottles, I loved the versatility of the oil being able to nourish both hair and skin. On a scale of 1-10, we were mind blown.
We needed a gentle face wash that was just as effective for our beauty lovers with sensitive skin, and Anove was our top pick. Anove Cleansing Gel uniquely combines Alpha Hydroxyl acid and Aloe Vera in a way that perfects your natural skin complexion, and still leaves that squeaky clean soft feel we all love.
The uber-violet packaging, may get your attention, but the bright blonde results will capture your heart. I recommended the blonde duo set because quite frankly, what's shampoo without conditioner? you know you'll need the other. Totally crushing on the Blonde Duo set by Amika.
Anyone up for mind blowing orgasms?Anyone? Ok only one small detail, you'll need a functioning vulva. Foria Arousal Oil is the first intimacy & wellness product featured on St. Eden because well we're raunchy like that. I tried the Awaken Arousal Oil with little expectation from myself or my partner, but it's smooth texture and pleasant aroma got us in the mood really quickly. What I really love about this product is that it supports your pleasure & sexual wellness – solo or with a partner. This vagina approves. Cheers to more sex, and less stress.
Ohh-La-La! Salmon is not my favorite color, but it just might be now. What I loved about 41 Terra by Habit Cosmetics was its 'down to earthy' tone, while still vibrant enough for summer. I'm also
more of a matte gal, but my feelings towards Terra 41's creme finish surprised little ol' me. Pair with a sundress, and you're more than ready for the next social distancing picnic.
