I’ve been using this Lotus Aqua Bloom Cream by Beyond for about a week now. Using this mainly as a night cream as it is quite thick on the skin. The morning after waking up and having this product to fully work its magic into my skin, my skin is left feelings very plump and hydrated. This is definitely a drink for your skin and will help repair any kind of dryness you are experiencing.
As everyone’s skin is different, I have very sensitive skin and most products sting my under eyes. However this lotus aqua bloom cream is safe for my under eyes with no irritation.
Have a look at the products from Beyond (Korea).

Today I am featuring the lovely Beth & Olivia – Handmade bath and body products from Vancouver, BC. They sell their products on Etsy and BigCartel. They sent me 3 lovely items to review for you lovely beans.
This is their lip butter for tea lovers! I myself am a huge tea lover and especially Earl Grey! Using Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Beeswax. All having beneficial properties making a fantastic lip balm! This is a pretty soft lip butter so when applying it be sure to be soft with it.

This green clay face mask is specifically great for oily, combination and acne prone skin. Green clay helps draw toxins out of the skin and pores, helps with redness and inflammation, helps lighten acne scars and allows your skin to heal.

Last is this adorable mini Tea Tree & Eucalyptus soap. Priced for $4.78. I’m personally a big fan of both of these scents. Both being healing and refreshing. Each bar of soap being hand cut and hand wrapped with love!

I’ve been using this tonique/body mist for the last 2 years and i’ve really grown quite fond of it. This mist can be used for your face, body or hair and even on top of your makeup, if you’re needing an extra hydration boost. Great for the beach and after being in the sun, this mist has Aloe and Sea Enzymes as the host. Restoring moisture and helping protect your skin ♡.
I first discovered Doctor Schwabs while I was in college for Aesthetics. I purchased this at a Spa Convention in Vancouver, BC. You can purchase this online if you’re interested though ^.^ Link below.

Passion 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-nameI 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.”
My 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!

My 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.”

I also had the pleasure of doing a quick interview with Francesca from Passion Moon Potions!♡
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. 🙂
Be sure to check out Passion Moon Potions on Etsy! She’s got tons of lovely skin care products for every type of person! ❤
So i know this is obviously a little late since it’s already a week into November. However better late than never we have all been told! I did receive my Glam Bag late, it was around October 25 when I received mine. So if you’re in Canada! Expect to get yours more towards the end of the month.
Next I opened my Glam Bag and pulled out this stylesexyhair texturizing spray clay. I tested it out and it works good for straight hair. It sprays very pressured so a lot comes out at one time, so I advise to spray at least a foot away from your hair. The smell seems very citrusy to me.. Kind of like the wood shiner smell i remember as a kid.
Next I find this very lovely mermaid green ZOYA nail polish in shade Giovanna. I have yet to try it out but will be posting once it’s on my nails! I don’t recall that i’ve ever actually tried the ZOYA nailpolish because i’ve been living in a cave for the last 2 years…
Next i have this “truth creme” advanced hydration by OLEHENRICKSEN. This product smells kind of like a creamy citrus pudding & I am excited to try it out tonight after my shower!
Next I pull out this gorgeous eyeshadow by bellaterra mineral cosmetics. I have never tried anything by bellaterra and have wanted to for a while! This Navy Mineral Shimmer is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to play with it.
I think i’ll get some good use out of Octobers Glam Bag, hopefully my Glam Bag comes in earlier this month so i can post about it before the end of the month!
