REVIEW: Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

Hey beautypuffs!

I have been blessed with the first ever product sent to me to review! It’s the Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub provided by WishTrend.

This opportunity came up at the best time! Lately I’ve been feeling like some parts of my body have chicken skin (like my butt), and that I’ve been developing a bit of congestion on my body (my chest and back).

What’s really attracting me to this product are what they feature in it: their round-cut nutshell granules and all the natural oils! The granules are from real walnut shells, making them a perfect alternative to the plastic microbeads. The plastic ones do not break down properly, and remain in our sewage system and waters. The walnut shells are biodegradable, and will not contribute any toxic chemicals to our environment!

This will be the first ever body scrub I have tried, so I’m definitely going to give you an honest review*!

Supplementing Sunshine: Remember to Get Your Vitamin D

Hey Lovelies!

I’ve been meaning to write this one for a while. Since the warm, amazing weather is coming around in Toronto, I thought it’s the perfect time to talk about the sun and sunscreen!

I’ve noticed in the past few years the obsession with sunscreen. Like OBSESSION. People applying it daily, summer or winter, as an anti-aging measure, preventing hyper-pigmentation (post-acne marks) from darkening, as well as preventing skin cancer.

There’s been so much hype about sunscreen and wearing SPF50+, I feel as if people have forgotten how healing the sun is, and that it is our best source of vitamin D.

Now I’m not saying that SPF doesn’t protect you, or that the sun will not burn you and damage your skin.

I wrote this post to document the updated facts for not only myself, but my family, friends, and you! With this information, I hope you’re able to cater it to your own personal lifestyle (where you live, skin type, etc.).

REVIEW: Josh Rosebrook Deep Hydrating Serum

Hey everyone,

At the beginning of the year I made a spendy purchase and bought the Josh Rosebrook Deep Hydrating Serum. Josh Rosebrook is well known for having products with pure, organic ingredients with zero toxicity results in his formulas. I was running out of my current facial oil, so I thought this would be an amazing replacement!

The price is quite high ($105 CAD) considering it is a 1oz (30ml) bottle.

I have used it consistently for about 2 months, mostly mornings morning and sometimes night, and now it’s time for a review.

OOTD: Shibuya109

Hey everyone! Welcome to my first fashion post.

About a month ago I went to the amazing city that is Tokyo. While there, my sister and I noticed how fashionable everyone was. You could definitely tell the trends, and that everyone has put effort in what they wore. We were very inspired during our travels, and had to shop at the monumental Shibuya109 – a women’s clothing mall that has 9 floors to shop on.

Hey peoples, welcome to part 1.2 of my skincare routine!
