I have some of the nicest/most considerate friends around, I SWEAR. For my birthday this year, my lovely friend Tash sent me a customized beauty box that is WAY BETTER than anything I've received from Topbox, Julep, Loose Button and Beauty Box 5 combined. And these are all organic, vegan, raw and/or non-toxic products, so let's dig in...
Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara - I know many ladies who swear by this mascara for sensitive eyes or those concerned with all the gunk in the mascaras you get from Sephora or the drug store. I'm really excited to use this when my Glam Natural vegan sample bites the dust. I've read some really good reviews about this mascara and Pacifica's line hasn't failed me yet. You can buy Pacifica online, but many organic shops/beauty places carry their line of products (the shipping to Canada is high.)
Piggy Paint Trio - I've heard a lot about Piggy Paint the last little while. While I've started purchasing more 3/5/7 FREE nail polish lately, I haven't completely gone towards Piggy Paint because of it's 'kid-friendly' tag. I loved the colour and the finish of the polish, but it took SO LONG to remove, and when I investigated,it's formulated with the intention that kids will chip them off, so it's not as conducive to the lifestyle of a beauty blogger who changes her nails twice a week :) I HIGHLY recommend this for the little budding polish-lover in your life though. A great alternative for kid-polish with really gorgeous results.
Faerhaven Walkerville Beer Soap- Perfect for any beer lover in your life... like me. I like bar soap for the bathroom and this gives me a full, heady smell of all the good-hoppy beer flavour while washing my hands. Who needs flowers when you have an ale to rinse all the dirt away? Also, another bonus, these guys operate out of Harlow, Ontario but sell a lot of their wares in Walkerville (in Windsor) which is basically a little oasis of awesome! They sell in some stores locally and online.
Faerhaven Orange Organic Coconut Milk Facial Bar- This thing smelled amazing but I packed it away in my move and haven't found it yet. I'm a huge fan of orange as an aromatic and coconut oil/milk so I'm sure that WHEN I FIND IT, it'll be pretty popular in my house.
Last but not least... Hurraw Orange Lip Balm - This stuff tastes like an orange creamsicle and it MOISTURIZES my lips while also working as a good base for lipstick. I love it, love it, love it. It's organic, vegan and GMO-Free. The secret to the amazing aromatic orange smell is a mix of TWO different orange peel oils and it makes all the difference in the world. You can get flavours like Earl Grey and Root Beer too. You can buy this online or at local natural beauty product stores.
