In November Sappho Cosmetics released their new line “Sappho New Paradigm” into the green beauty world. The Detox Market on King St. was hosting their launch party in Toronto and I just had to check it out!
Canadian makeup artist, JoAnn Fowler, founded the company in 2008. She developed Sappho Cosmetics to provide a green and clean alternative to the toxic, chemically laden commercial brands that are currently on the market.
This summer I decided to splurge on one of Coola’s sunscreens. I have been eyeing this brand for the past couple of years, never wanting to spend the money on such an expensive facial SPF.
I opted for Coola’s Unscented Matte Tint because 1) the Rose Tint was sold out at the Detox Market, and 2) the Cucumber Matte Finish pilled on my hand as I swatched it, and showed a white cast with a thin application.
I’ve used this for about half the summer, so it’s time to tell you what I think of the product! Worth the splurge, or save your money?
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.
For the past couple of weeks I made quite a few purchases, all within the realm of green beauty. In my personal experience, natural, good quality ingredients have almost always done wonders for my skin, and always contribute positively to my skin health.
I’ve finished a few products (another Empties coming soon!), so it was time to purchase some goodies to cycle in my routine!
Most of the items are in the beauty category (duh), but there are just a couple of items I’ve included that are just necessary for every day hygiene.
