REVIEW: Green Beaver Extra Dry Skin Body Lotion and Extra Moisturizing Lip Balm

Sun’s out, meaning my dry and scaly legs want to get out of hibernation. I was sent 2 products from Green Beaver’s Extra Dry Skin Therapy Line to prepare for such an occasion.

Green Beaver is a local, affordable, family-run Canadian brand that focuses on creating safe, natural products for any part of your body. I’ve always seen the brand in many health and eco shops I walk into, and always noticed they had a vast amount of products.

I’ve been using the following Green Beaver products for the past few weeks and am ready to share my thoughts with you all!

Not sure what the Lip Balm has to do with ugly legs, probably to distract the onlookers from how much I’ve let myself go?

Boyfriend Review: WISE MEN’S CARE

Finally, some products that Nick can review for all the lovely men in my life!

Wise Men’s Care is a Montreal indie brand that creates simple, natural men’s care products. Their ingredients are naturally sourced from varying parts of Canada, in recyclable and reusable packaging.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m all about local and natural brands, so I figured Wise Men’s Care is the perfect product line for Nick to try out! For those of you who don’t know Nick, he has very dark, thick hair that grows very fast. He is literally the perfect guinea pig *evil smirk*

We were sent the following for review purposes:

REVIEW: Consonant “One For All” Kit

In light of Canada’s 150th birthday, I decided to browse Sephora with a 10% discount at hand for any limited edition products roaming about the website. Consonant is a brand that has been occasionally recommended to me by friends as a great Canadian, natural skincare brand. I love supporting Canadian products, and I love natural, so I decided to pick up Consonant’s limited edition One For All Kit.

Before reading up on this kit, I must point out that my skin has been around the block. And I mean, I went from oily af to chapped skin in a matter of a couple of years. If you are any skin type, my skin has probably been in your category at one point. Hopefully I provide enough info to cover concerns for all skin concerns, but for right now, mine are acne-prone and dry.
