My last heavenly product from Shoreline Body Co is this BALANCE Body Butta’.  This is a very hydrating blend, looking a bit like honey in the jar! It was a bit liquidy when I first opened it, due to the intense heat of the summer right now. However since it’s been inside it has started to thicken a bit more which will make it more manageable.

Leaving my skin smooth and hydrated and my hands not too oily afterwards like some body budders. The smell and aroma I am getting from this is so lovely and calming.

This little guy is a lotion bar which I have never tried before. This little ladybug bar smells like an orange creamsicle dream.

https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/221410770/ladybug-lotion-bar-ladybug-lotion-orange?ref=shop_home_active_4

Price: $6.02

“A Solid Lotion Bar Little Ms. Lady Bug weighs in at 1.30 oz., with a reusable tin included.

Each Bar contains ingredients that are soothing to the skin, senses, body and mind. The scent reminds you of the orange grove you walked in that like Adam and Eve you pick the forbidden fruit off the tree only this time the forbidden fruit is an orange.

Directions for use: Hold the solid lotion bar in your hands when it melts some, rub it on your body for an all over experience of pure soft yummy smelling skin. The best time to apply the lotion is right after you shower or bathe, while your pores are open and they soak in. Enjoy!

Here are the Benefits of the Calendula in the lotion bar.

Physicians have been writing about Calendula and its amazing benefits for the skin for a very long time. The dried flowers of the plant were traditionally used in soups and stews to fight off illness, which is where it got the name Pot Marigold. The name Calendula comes from the Latin word Calendae, meaning the first day of the month, as this plant can bloom every month of the year in its native climate. Calendula is known for many health benefits but is most recognized for its effectiveness in healing skin problems, such as wounds, burns, insect bites, eczema, shingles and skin ulcers, to name a few.

Some of the amazing benefits Calendula oil has on the skin are;

1. Helps in healing wounds, cuts, bruises, scrapes, and inflamed skin.

2. Nourishes and softens dry chapped skin.

3. Is known to have antiseptic, anti fungal, and anti bacterial properties.

4. Very effective for treating sun burn, minor burns, acne, eczema, inflamed skin, and rashes.

5. Is very helpful in treating athletes foot.

6. Is used for relieving diaper rash.

7. Is known to relieve bug bites and stings.

These are just seven reasons why this wonderful plant as earned the name among herbalist, “Mother of the Skin”. This is a must have plant in the garden, not only will it aid you and your household with wonderful medicinal and culinary values but will bring beauty to the garden all season long.”

Next I have these 3 bath bombs in the scents Love Spell & Moonlight Pomegranate.

Price: $1.67 each

https://www.etsy.com/shop/Simplyhomemadesoaps/items?ref=listing-shop2-all-items-count&section_id=16280617

“If you want to relax and sink yourself in to a tub with something, Bath fizzies are the way to go. Pop one in the tub watch the fizzing and relax as the scents take you into dreamland. I suggest two fizzies per bath time.

These bombs will not only relax you, but they will detox the body as well. Epsom salt and Baking soda will help to draw out impurities and heal itching and skin. I also use Chia Seed and Olive Oil.

Benefits of Baking Soda

Are you a shower person or a bath person? I love baths, but I haven’t had the time the past few months and I really missed them, they are so relaxing! This past week though, I caught some type of virus, so I took a bath every night to reap the benefits of Epsom salts, which help detoxify, boost the immune system, relieve aches and increase magnesium. In addition to adding Epsom salts to my baths, I also like to add a little baking soda, Chia seed oil, Olive oil along with essential oils or fragrance for the benefits. What’s the perfect way to add all these fantastic ingredients to your bath? A great bath bomb! They are very popular lately and very cool, like something you would get at a spa.

Baking Soda- I love to add some baking soda to my bath because it aids in drawing out toxins from your body. Not only does it remove toxins, it also aids in alkalizing your body, helps treat common skin problems, hemorrhoids and yeast infections

Benefits of Epsom Salts

Epsom Salts- Many people are deficient in magnesium and Epsom salt baths are a great way to increase magnesium levels! When you bathe in Epsom salts, the magnesium and sulfates are absorbed in the skin, pulling out harmful toxins from your body! Some of the health benefits of magnesium include; fighting inflammation, increasing blood flow and improving oxygenation in your body. Just some of the conditions Epsom salt baths helps are; sprains and bruises, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus and gout.”

Last I have these lovely “Lip Lickers” in the flavour’s Orange Creamsicle and Rum & Coke. These really do have me licking my lips when I’m using them! They are quite tasty and smell delightful. These Lip Lickers come in 33 different flavours!

Price: $ 3.01 

https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/197077969/lip-licker-all-natural-and-homemade-lip?ref=shop_home_active_15

Benefits of some of the ingredients

Bees Wax

One of the most popular ingredients of commercial lip balms is beeswax. Taken from its root word, bees, beeswax is a nutrient-packed substance that bees secrete when constructing a honeycomb. Beeswax in its natural form is liquid and devoid of color. It can be easily mixed in water in oil emulsions and is hypo-allergenic. Beeswax is also an effective emollient, meaning, it has natural soothing and softening properties that makes it a great lip balm ingredient. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial components can help in the prevention of infection and bacterial growth. Beeswax can trap moisture excellently, and can aid in defending the skin against detrimental factors found in the environment.

Benefits of Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is most effective among all the natural herbs. Aloe Vera can be considered as the blessing of the nature for the human kind. It is used in large variety of health and skin products. Aloe Vera creams and ointments made with aloe Vera are very effective for a number of skin problems. The aloe Vera herb is used as stand alone ingredients as well as the combination with other products.
Aloe Vera Lip balms

Lip balm made with aloe Vera is very effective to prevent lips from a number of problems. The following are the major benefits of the aloe Vera cream, made for the lips.

My First Lip Monthly Subscription

06

The month of October I received my very first LipMonthly subscription. I had only watched a video or two before jumping on the website to order my very own. Not knowing really what to expect (besides perhaps a bunch of lip products?!) I was happy to see they had sent me 5 different products!

My first product revealed was this noyah cherry lip balm, which glides nicely onto your lips as if it were a stick of butter. The familiar cherry scent isn’t too strong, but quite subtle and lovely. This product is full size, worth $3.99.

http://noyah.com/cherry-lip-balm.html

 

01

 Next I pull out this lip sugar by Starlooks. Basically just a brown sugar mixed with a bit of oil, very simple to make at home. I definitely would never purchase something like this, but it will be interesting to try out. This is a full size product and you can buy any 5 for $10.

http://starlooks.com/products/all-natural-lip-sugar

02

 Next I have this lip shimmer by Devine in the shade “pinot noir” <– I’m such a wino, i literally love this thing simply because of the colour name hehe. This lip shimmer is very smooth and lush ❤  This product is full size, costing $4.95.

http://devineshimmers.com/products/pinot-noir

04

I’m not really in need of pencil liners, I personally never really use them and Ipsy likes to include them quite often, I feel. This eyeliner by L.A. Girl is in the shade Navy <– No idea when I will use this. Maybe i’ll find someone who could get some use out of it. This product costs $3.00 and is cruelty free, which is rad! ❤

http://www.lagirlusa.com/eyeliner-pencil-223.html

03

So my last and most favorite item I received in this LipMonthly bag is this lovely nude lipstick by JCats. I personally never have worn a nude lip, and I honestly slightly obsessed with this colour. This nude lip works so well with my fair skin. I’M SHOCKED, I AM TURNING INTO A LOVER OF THE NUDE LIP. Do you like nude lips?

This is a full size product at the cost of $2.99, they have sooo many shades and this applies very nicely!
