Happy Tuesday guys!

A few weeks ago, I was invited to preview the new Spring/Summer collection of Essence Cosmetics { along with other blog and youtube babes }. The new collection coming up is so beautiful guys! Luxurious matt lipsticks which feels like velvet on the lips ( not drying at all ), amazing mascara and pigmented palettes for the face and the eyes.

For quite sometime now, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to my health and to what I actually put on my skin, go wonder why ;)
You can easily find natural and organic beauty and make up products. They’ll certainly tend to be more expensive than the others but I think that if you’ve been thinking about integrating natural products into your skincare and make up regime it can be a great investment. After all, your body will thank you for that.
So today, I wanted to share with you some items I use on a daily basis and some I’m coveting and dying to try (& their prices as well). So without further a doe let’s jump right into it!

  1. Ilia Beauty Lipsticks / $26
  2. Yves Rocher Volume Vertige Mascara. I’ve been a big fan of Yves Rocher’s products which are directly derived from vegetal ingredients. I’ve seen and heard great feedbacks on their Mascara and it is on my wishlist
  3. Alima Pure Eye Shadows / $48
  4. Pacifia Radiant Shimmer Palette / $14
  5. Acure Brightening Facial Scrub available here as well / $15
  6. Birch Rose Soft Mask / $32
  7. Bio Beauté Nuxe Moisturizing Emulsion / $30. Overall Nuxe products are very much appreciated. I’ve tried their toner and I have to admit that I did not quite like how my skin felt after applying the toner. I am definitely really picky on toners, so I guess this was not meant to be. However, I do think I’ll give a chance to this cream.
  8. Josie Maran Argan Oil Cleanser / $40. I use it and 100% approve this cleanser. I’m a big fan of Josie Maran cosmetics, I honestly think it’s worth the splurge. I also find the amount of product to be very generous meaning you will use it over a pretty long period of time.
  9. L’Occitane Skin Perfecting Mist / $25
  10. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light / $60. I am seriously coveting this light face oil from Josie Maran. It seems like it’s a killer product!
  11. Tata Harper Brightening Serum / $300
  12. First Aid Beauty Cleanser / $25. I personally use this cleanser every single day. I love the texture and the subtle scent. I’ve already done a review on this. You can see it here if you want to.
  13. Hold On Floral Tonic / $30
  14. Aveeno Hand Cream / $ 10. Aveeno is the best hand cream I’ve found up to date to keep my hands perfectly moisturized all year long. I’m honestly not even looking for something else for now. I’m a satisfied client and I will buy it again and again ;)
  15. Primally Pure Everything Spray / $16
