Bernard Cassiere – Micro-Gommage

001

Bernard, Bernard, Bernard… This luxurious Micro-gommage runs about $34 Canadian.  I’ve been using this for just over a year now and I have fallen madly in love with the smell, the texture and the results. I would love to repurchase this again once this tube comes to an end. The only way I can really describe the scent is like.. the sexiest man you could imagine. It smells absolutely divine. My eyes almost roll in the back of my head every time I take a sniff. It leaves my skin feeling super smooth and soft. Great for removing dead skin and blackheads!

Passion Moon Potions – Natural Hawaiian Skin Care

Passion_08Passion_06Passion Moon Potions is a Luxurious and Indulgent Skin Care line, handmade in Kona Hawaii. I was fortunate enough to collaborate with Francesca Azar, the founder and creator of Passion Moon Potions to review and share some of her luxurious products with you!

You can check out Francesca’s Etsy store here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/PassionMoonPotions?ref=l2-shopheader-namePassion_01I received this Moisturizing Leave in Condition in the scent “Sweet Orange” which I have been really loving. This leave in conditioner comes in 9 different scents, I have quite curly hair naturally and this leave in conditioner really helps the curls stand out and hold bounce. This is perfect for at the beach and just everyday use after showering! My roommate and I are absolutely in love with this leave in conditioner and can’t get enough of it! It smells so refreshing with a creamy orange scent and leaves your hair looking and feeling nice and smooth.

Moisturizing Leave in Conditioner $9.07+ :  https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/225381168/moisturizing-leave-in-conditioner-hair?ref=shop_home_feat_1

“The perfect easy-to-use conditioner for all types of hair. This light spray won’t weigh down even the finest hair. Our Leave-in Detangler uses Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and Castor Oil to smooth and condition the cuticle making it easy for combs and brushes to get through all your curls, waves, and knots! It’s perfect for after swimming in the ocean, or for any extra frizz.  Scented with pure essential oils and fragrances.”

Passion_02My next product i’ve been really loving is this Clarifying Cleanser for Oily Skin. This is a super gentle cleanser that feels silky smooth on the skin. I love that Francesca includes directions on how to properly use this face wash. Advising to be gentle and to not add too much pressure, cleansing in circular upwards motion. These are all natural, handmade, vegan and cruelty free products which I truly admire!

“This Clarifying Cleanser is an incredibly adsorbent, refreshing one-step cleanser which is packed with extracts, vitamins and oils that will moisturize so as not to destroy your lipid barrier, while the charcoal deeply cleans. Blended with lemon and lemongrass essential oils, perfect for oily skin types.”

She also offers cleansers for all types of skin, so be sure to check out the other cleansers if this one isn’t for your skin type!

Passion_09Passion_010My last product I have from Passion Moon Potions is this Lip Tint in the colour “Cherry Merlot”. If you’ve read other posts of mine or watched some of my youtube you will know I am a redwine fan so this was perfect for me! The tint isn’t too pigmented so it can be used as an everyday lip moisturizer. This lip tint is deffinitely on the smoother side of lip tints, it glides on very nicely and keeps your lips hella moisturized. Made with olive and coconut oils, cocoa and kokum butters, beeswax and natural flavors, xylitol (naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables) and Aloha ❤

“Sweet Cherries, with a deep merlot red color. A perfect lip color for a night out, or just a bit of color for your day. This lip tint is made with lip softening oils and butters, and colored with lip safe mica. Sweetened with stevia, tastes and smells, and looks beautiful.”

Miz Lulu [Q]: What inspires you to create Passion Moon Potions?

Passion Moon Potions [A]: I love to create products that make people feel good. I’m inspired by this gorgeous island. Flowers, foods, desserts. Anything that entails you to be nice to yourself.

Q: What are two products you use on the daily?
A: Whipped sugar scrubs and Kau’i Oil

Q: Where did the name Passion Moon Potions come from?
A: Passion Moon Potions began from my love of pastry and desserts combined with the importance of lavishing oneself in quality skin care. I always loved being in the kitchen creating delicious things to eat. Baking sweets & decadent desserts was a way for me to express my love for this art through complex flavors and textures combined. As a coffee connoisseur, I also enjoyed making gorgeous designs in lattes using my artistic nature with the creamy coffee textures. I always enjoyed making desserts for people and was happy to put a satisfied smile on their faces. Finding the baking world to be far too fast paced, I decided to start my own business to continue following my love of this art and keep my passions alive. I made the leap from desserts to skincare and combined my love for desserts and sweet smelling skin products into literal desserts for the skin. Flowers have always drawn me in for their sweet scents and beauty. These floral expressions are embodied within my skin care products. For women, the moon represents a source of connection with nature. As I was experimenting with my own recipes and creating luxuries for the skin, I created many potions in my laboratory, evolving into Passion Moon Potions.

Q: When did you start creating your own skin care products?
A: I started back in 2000, went from a hobby to a business somewhere around 2006.

Q: What do you do when you’re not creating potions and filling orders?
A: I work a couple days at my family’s organic cafe. Enjoy Island life. Head to the beach, swim, relax, read. Play around with new product ideas. I focus my life on feeling good and having fun. 🙂Passion_011

Recently I’ve been on the hunt for cheap candles in glass container/wear and have found it rather difficult coming across candles that aren’t $10+. Unless of course you are at Dollorama which nothing is less than $3 but sometimes not what you’re looking for. Sometime last week I made my way into town, alllll the way to the Canadian Wholesale and have found these adorable $1.25 vanilla bean “starlytes”. They smell e-x-a-c-t-l-y like vanilla cake with Betty Crocker’s vanilla icing…. You know the one, and they come in these adorable “mason jar” looking containers. LOVE!

Over the past year or so, i’ve been experimenting with different drug store face wash’. I finally feel like I have hit the jack pot with this one! ST.Ives Naturally Clear, Green Tea Scrub, smells absolutely divine. It has a very mild scrub to it, and leaves your face feeling amazingly fresh and soft. It contains salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, which really does make a noticeable difference after washing your face. I’m pretty sure you can pick this up at almost any drug store & I will definitely be picking this one up again.

I got this argan oil for a christmas present, probably about 3 years ago. Which is absolutely ridiculous that I didn’t really start using it until last year. I did come across this product at Wall-Mart for only $10, and I believe that any human that applies heat or dye of any sort should have a bottle of argan oil. It is so unbelievably repairing for dry/fried, dead ends & damage of any kind to the hair. It really leaves your hair feeling healthy, with enough nurture for silky goodness! I brought this to Mexico with me last November and this helped save my hair from sun damage & all the salt water swimming can be harsh on your hair. I’ve been using it ever since. Also this bottle will last you what will seem for ever, I only use a drop ever time I get out of the shower. I do find if i use too much (over 2 drops) it can leave me hair feeling a bit oily, hence the argan “oil”.

If you come across this white tea & blueberry at the store, pick it up! It is sooo yummy! The only ingredients are filtered water, cane sugar, white tea, natural blueberry flavour and citcric acid. They also have just a regular ice tea which is also delicious. Random, simple and very worth trying 😉
