products i’m digging this spring

for those who don’t know me very well and those who do… i love to use easy, all-natural, clean, vegan products as much as possible (not all of the products a completely all of the above… like i said, it try as much as i can)! if you’re looking for some clean product inspo or just a peak into some of the products i’m loving and use, then this post is for you!

hair care

olaplex 3, 4 + 5

i recently got a blowout for an event i went to an event in march, c3 toronto’s vision builder’s gala. this was the first time i treated myself to a blowout. i had been feeling like i’ve been stuck in the biggest rut with my hair and desired a healthy styled look that I knew I wouldn’t have the products to do it at home!

have you ever felt like your hair is getting shorter and shorter because of breakage? that it’s so dry and frizzy no product has been able to trim it? i went to elevate beauty lofts here in etobicoke and they used all olaplax products to wash and style my hair, it had been about a year since my hair had looked so healthy! they used olaplex 3, 4, 5 & 6 on me. I purchased olaplex 3, 4 & 5 at sephora, each bottle i $38 (so, not the cheapest… but i found it to be worth it, a little truly goes a long way!). these products help to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage, leaving your hair feeling healthy! 

no 3. is the hair protector, an at-home treatment that reduces breakage and visibly strengthens hair, improving its look and feel.

no 4. is the bond shampoo, it repairs and bonds while gently cleansing all types of hair.

no 5. is the bond conditioner, restores, repairs, and hydrates without adding excess weight. eliminates damaged frizz for strong, healthy, shiny hair.

skin care

summer fridays jet leg mask

tbh when it comes to face masks i love them but i’m lazy! this is my favourite go-to mask to apply just before bed!

if your skin is anything like mine it’s in need of hydration (especially after our canadian winters!), and this hydrating mask is just what you need! it soothes thirsty, stressed-out skin by steeping cells in a nourishing mix of vitamins, ceramides, and antioxidants. i find each time i use this mask my skin looks instantly renewed! bonus, this mask is free from phthalates, surfactants, petrolatums, BHT, BHA, or silicones!

so, disclaimer - i’m 24 and went 23 years without wearing deodorant… consistently (i tested it out in high school for a short period of time - half of that time i was lazy and forgot to apply it, then i realized no one was telling me i smelled so i figured why bother using it if i didn’t truly need to). recently i’ve noticed a shift in my hormones (could just be stress and anxiety related tbh) causing me to sweat more than usual and i’ve felt more self-conscious of the fact that i may smell because i’m sweating more… i was talking to erica about it and she recommended the natural deodorant she uses!

this deodorant has been my saviour! it’s made with 100% active ingredients, including pure coconut oil and water. it’s free from aluminum, baking soda, parabens, silicone, phthalates and it glides on clear - what’s not to love!? i find i only need to apply this deodorant once in the morning and i’m good for the whole day (gym included)! it doesn’t leave that sticky feel and it smell like fresh coconut milk (which i love… you may not!).

makeup

milk makeup highlighter stick (lit - champagne pearl)

i don’t wear much make up at all, the make up products i use on my face daily is this highlighter, a contour palette, eyebrow gel/pencil, and mascara! i love the natural radiant glow this cream highlighter stick gives my skin (especially after my tan and freckles fade in the winter)!

this highlighter is a vegan formula is infused with coconut oil, mango butter, and avocado oil! not only is it luminous, it’s hydrating! it’s so easy to apply too!

revive organics smoothies delivery

typically when it comes to smoothies i have very high expectations (i make a smoothie almost everyday and i like them fairly thick and packed with nutrients - so, i find it difficult to spend money on a smoothie that i can make or make better at home)! good thing i have friends with similar taste… another product recommended to me by erica! recently i’ve been running tighter for time in the morning, and have been valuing my sleep a bit more! erica, being a mom, is always moving and also values good quality smoothies! so when she texted me raving about these smoothies i had to try them - having a 50% off code and referral definitely helped me buy into it! i’m not typically one to buy into a delivery or food service but this was worth it for me!

revive organics delivers healthy, organic, preservative-free smoothies in the most convenient format possible: frozen, ready to blend, and right to your doorstep (i mean… i signed up!)! they have weekly and monthly package options, and you’re free to pause/cancel anytime before your upcoming pay period (with no extra charge, you manage this through your account)! i signed up to receive 24 smoothies each month, giving me a smoothie almost everyday! the larger the package the more bang for your buck - but keep in mind you need freezer space (i’m lucky to have 2 freezers)! they have 12 different smoothie flavor options and 3 oat bowl options! i’ve tried one of each, other than the grass is greener - i love green smoothies but this one just didn’t appeal to me! erica’s fave is the rise & chai, and my faves are the berry blu, rise & chai, and hint of mint!

if you’re interested here’s my referral code for 3 free smoothies: ref-5668


i hope you enjoy reading about some of the products i’m digging! i’ll probably write another post like this soon (maybe seasonally), so if you have any suggestions for products i should try, please lmk!
