Bliss Makeup – The Big Toss

I gathered up five Bliss products in my cabinet, at some point years ago I went through a Blissworld phase when they had a makeup line. Now defunct, I can’t locate these products online or even find their ingredients lists. Being a mystery line that is currently collecting dust, they will be part of my big toss.   I…

Fresh Beauty – The Big Toss

I got a trio of Fresh products for free from Sephora VIP rewards and was excited to try them because I’ve enjoyed Fresh bath products. While expensive, they make very luxurious and beautifully scented lotions, fragrances, soaps, and bath salts. I was in love with the lychee scent, and bought it from time to time…

Aubrey Organics GBP Shampoo – The Big Toss

This Aubrey Organics GBP shampoo… How do I be polite? Well, I’ll just say it, it sucked! No bubbles (suds are my personal preference), smelled like vomit, did not feel like it cleaned my hair at all, and combined with the matching conditioner left my hair dry, oddly chalky, and very dull. The Aubrey Organics…

Colgate – The Big Toss

I don’t think I have to explain too much on this selection for purging, but I have been avoiding fluoride and this is one source of it. I’ve also become blind to this tube, that has sat unused in my cabinet for almost two years and taken up shelf space. In addition to the fluoride,…

Aubrey Masks – The Big Toss

These two masks (on the right) that I purchased from Aubrey promised a lot, but didn’t really work that great. This is a case where I feel natural products can be ineffective for me. The Oil Balancing Mask by Aubrey, is an oily skin mask made primarily with kaolin clay. I found this product very…

Decleor Duds – The Big Toss

Beauty product bombs make me so sad. I’ve been noticing old products decaying and taking up precious room in my cabinet. They’re all reminders of my caffeine induced impulse buys, wasted money, and dashed beauty aspirations! Creamy flawless skin! Wrinkles banished! All life problems miraculously solved by magical cream! I’ve kept these duds around cause its…

Beautycounter Surprise – UPDATED

I had my first experience with Beautycounter from a friend who is a rep for them a few weeks ago. The risk a friend might take in giving me a product to try is well… a negative review. I’m the blogger that wants to spend time digging into product ingredients and write honestly about the performance…

B-12 Shot in my A$$

I just did it today. I had a B-12 shot administered to my buttocks this morning. Why? I’ve been dealing with fatigue for the past few weeks, relapsing into something called “adrenal fatigue.” I was diagnosed with this condition last year and have been effectively treating it with: dietary changes herbal formulas better sleep hygiene supplements…

Vitamin C Serum!

Vitamin C is one of those vitamins you’ll see added to many beauty products across the board. There are many studies that cite Vitamin C as necessary to skin health and is depleted when the skin is exposed to health. By adding it to our bodies externally and internally we can combat sun damage, and…

Turmeric Toddy

Sans alcohol… As we enter fall and winter, one of my favorite things is to snuggle up and sip delicious hot beverages. Hot chocolate has been a longtime favorite of mine but I recently discovered Turmeric Milk, Golden Milk, or Turmeric Hot Toddy’s – as I’ve seem them called online. The benefits of consuming turmeric are numerous…

Tech Gadget for Natural Birth Control

I just came across an awesome new device to help us ladies figure out when we’re fertile. Natural birth control might be a risqué method to promote, but I believe it is effective provided: 1 – you are not a teenager or young woman going through major hormonal fluctuations, 2 – you have a regular…
