Goddess Provisions March 2018 | Tap into your body’s wisdom

I was very happy to come home today and find my Goddess Provisions Box on my bed. I had a fantastic experience with last months Box, so I was really looking forward to this one.

This months Box is centered all around Ayurvedic Wellness, and I am very intrigued. I have had some Ayurvedic products in Vegan Cuts boxes, so I have been interested in learning more for a while.

Monthly mantra: “I’m aligned in body, mind, and spirit.”

Idiots Guide to Ayurvedic By Sahara Rose $20

I can not wait to read this. I really want a better understanding of Ayurveda, and I believe this book will be very helpful.

Paavani Tridoshic Spritzer $12

“Aromatherapy mist for harmonizing all three sos has featuring lavender, geranium, and cedar.”

The scent is lovely and very calming. Once I learn more I am interested to see how well this product works.

Copper Cup Turmeric Latte $19

This latte mix is meant to reduce inflammation in the body.

I am not the biggest coffee fan, I prefer teas. But, my person loves coffee so I will probably have him give this a try.

Gonesh Sandalwood Incense Cones $2

I love the scent of sandalwood and I really enjoy burning incense. Sandalwood is a scent I find very relaxing, so I am sure I’ll get a ton of use out of these.

Copper Tongue Scraper $10

This instrument is meant to remove buildup and bacteria from your tongue. I have never heard of one of these, I am going to have to do a bit of research.

Balanced Guru Scalp Treatment $11.50

“Relax your mind and body with a gentle head massage using this scalp treatment that delivers nourishing Botanicals straight to your roots.”

I really like the idea of this product. I do get really bad eczema on my scalp though, so I am hoping this won’t cause a flare up if I try it.

Ahimsa Essentials Zen Oil Blend $13

This blend is made of lavender, peppermint, and bergamot. It smells fantastic. It is very close to the oil blend I have already been using and loving at night. I already know I am going to love this oil.

Carnelian $2

“Good for Pitta imbalance, this stone promotes self-empowerment, boosts will power, enhances vitality, and amplifies life force energy.”

This crystal seems like the perfect worry stone for work. I think I am going to place it on my desk and fidget with it when I become anxious or unmotivated. It is also just really nice to look at, I love the warm orange and brown tones.

That is it for this months GP box. I love everything and I am really glad a book was included! 🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦 out of five pigeons!

What is your favorite aromatherapy products??

Goddess Provisions Feb 2018| Look for Faeries

I am trying to do things to help my mental health. I am trying to cope with a lot right now. So, I decided it’s time I focus on my spiritual side and self love.

I never really believed in anything besides the calming aspects of nature. After searching some, reading, and learning I’ve come to the conclusion that this is what I have needed to really help myself.

I decided to try out the Goddess Provisions Box. It focuses on crystals, aromatherapy, and different calming and healing things. Everything in the box is Cruelty Free. I do believe it is a bit pricey around $33 a month, but very worth it.

This months mantra: ” Those who don’t believe in Magic will never find it.” -Roald Dahl

Cottagewicks Candles “Faerie Magick “$20

“Lighten up your sacred space with this soy candle made with lavender essential oil and sprinkled with strawberry quarts crystals, turquenite, and herbs.”

This is the most beautiful candle I have ever seen. I almost don’t want to burn it. It smells amazing, I LOVE lavender, and I think it will be a fantastic addition to my night time meditation.

Pacifica Liquid Highlighter “Crystal Moon” $13

“Use this magic mans to apply a touch of faerie dust to your cheekbones, eyelids, and/or collarbones.”

I have wanted to try more from Pacifica’s crystal infused line. I have tried one other of the Liquid highlights, but this shade has more glitter in it.

I think this stark white shade with iridescent glitters will look nice on my fair skin. I have been wanting to get into using more cream products.

Element Botanicals Bath Salts “Faerie Garden” $7

“Add a dash of these botanical salts featuring rosewood and lavender essential oils into your bath for a cleaning ritual.”

Unfortunately, I do not have a bath tub just a standing shower. But, I could use them as a foot soak or take them with me when I travel to use while away.

The scent is great and the bottle is really cute.

Bioluminescence Flower Essence “Enchanted ” $15

“Add 3-4 drops under your tongue, to your favorite beverage, diy skincare creation, or bath go to align with the energy with the nature spirits.”

I haven’t read enough to quite figure out the benefits of this type of thing, but it is intriguing. I do have to say, there is something calming about it. I was expecting it to have a terrible taste, but it didn’t what so ever.

Use the code GODDESS for 20% off your flower essence order.

Lisa Junius Pin $12

I really love pins. My leather jacket is covered in them. I even bought an Ita bag to display them all on.

I think this pin is adorable and it seems to be nicely made.

Superfeast Mushroom Blend $28

“Boost your immune system by adding a dose of this blend of 8 medical mushrooms to your smoothie, juice, hot chocolate, or to a cup of hot water.”

I will be straight forward. I am terrified of trying the product. It sounds quite gross. Maybe I will be able to manipulate it into tasting somewhat tolerable. I have been victim to the Flu epidemic, maybe the mushroom blend will help.

Rose Quartz $2

“This stone emits the vibrations of unconditional love, joy, and emotional healing. Hold it close to your heart to increase your loving feelings towards all beings.”

The crystal had a beautiful light pink hue and is the perfect size to put in my jacket pocket. I like to put it in my pocket and rub my fingers around it Sense it is so soft.

That is all through this months Box! What are your favorite spiritual healing and self love items???

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Feb β€˜18 | Compassionate Beauty

I had a completely different post planned for today, but I feel just terrible. My throat feels like I swallowed knives and my entire body is sore. Needless to say I didn’t feel like putting on any makeup today. But, yesterday my favorite subscription box arrived in the mail! So, I decided to do an unboxing.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a box of 4-5 Cruelty Free and vegan beauty products, I believe it is around $30ish a month.

This months theme is compassionate beauty. The card is covered in hearts. Ya know, because of Valentine’s Day.

Let’s look inside.

Jivi Exfoliating Face Wash “Lemongrass” $12

An all natural Exfoliating face wash. This arrived at the perfect time because I just finished up my current face wash. I will be doing a review on this item. After reading a bit about the company, they offer some fantastic things- to the customer and the community.

Luscious Cosmetics Pout Maker “Perky” $12

This months makeup item is a lip crayon. If I am going to use a more traditional lip stick, it’s probably going to be in a crayon format.

The shade is one I tend to gravitate towards, so I am sure I will get a ton of use out of it.

Derma-E Hydrating Night Cream $7.50

I thought it was so funny I received this product. I just watched a YouTube video and the girl (who I can’t remember) was raving about this night cream. I am very excited to try it.

Śaiva Naturals Relaxing Foot Balm $17.50

I don’t think I have ever used a foot balm. But, I may apply it tonight and pop on some fuzzy socks. Maybe it’ll help me feel relaxed and my muscles won’t hurt as badly. It has a citrusy scent, which smells fantastic.

Art Naturals Konjac Sponge Set $10

I also needed a new facial sponge!! Two sponges will last me a while, so I was very excited to see something that is an essential for me.

$59 Value for only around $30. Great box this month VC!

Have you tried any of the products in this months Box yet?

It’s the first VC Beauty Box of the year, and I was stoked when I saw it in my mail box today after work. I definitely needed the pick me up.

But, back to the topic of this post!

“Petal soft soothing contour gel with alpine rose stem cells that gently hydrates-and uplifts.”

Everyone needs a good eye cream. Well, Gel. The 1000 roses line is a really nice line, and none of the products I have tried so far have irritated my sensitive skin. I am excited to give this a try.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo Illuminator $29

“Iridescent highlighter that can be used on the face and body to create a beautiful glow”

I am trying to get into using cream highlighters, but I’m always afraid they will bring out my pores. I really need to give some a go.

I don’t think this one will look good on my skin tone though, but I’ll try it at least once.

Oral Essentials Whitening strips $2.85

“Gel strips that whiten teeth in just 30 minuets!”

I have been trying to find a more natural whitening strips. I am glad I finally get to try one. Hopefully I like them so I can purchase a box.

First of all, the packaging is really cute. Love the little card they included. Second of all, anything that will improve my complexion sounds great. I usually do enjoy rosehip.

Auromere Shampoo Bar $1

I love the Lush Shampoo bars. A less expensive option would be nice. I will give this tiny guy a try and then update you all.

That’s it for this months Box! The grand total of the products of this months Box comes to $72.30. Awesome value! I may not get much use out of the high light, but I have high hopes for everything else.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Dec. 2017 | Bold Beauty

Sorry that I have been away for a few days! Saturday, I had my wisdom teeth and a cyst removed and I am not bouncing back as fast as I thought I would. I have spent the past few days binge watching Kathleen Lights videos and Watching Star Wars.

My Vegan Cuts Beauty Box for December came in today though, so I decided it was time I make myself doing something. I also went to work today.

So, let’s dig through this box while I ignore my swollen face!

Herbal Transdermal Papaya Enzyme Soft and Silky Mud Mask $16

I have tried a toner from Herbal Transdermal before, and loved it. I have never used any skincare with Papaya, but it smells good, and my previous experience with the brand gives me high expectations.

Timeless Organic SkinCare Timeless Eye Serum $30

This Eye Serum came at the perfect time. I just finished up my night eye cream, which you will hear about in my Empties, so I needed another. I have been giving my moms my eye creams, but I am starting to notice how dry and dark my under eyes are. Expect a review on this, I. My opinion, pricey eye cream soon!

Koils By Nature Mositurizing Shealoe Leave In Conditioner $6

I have really dry frizzy hair. I haven’t color treated it in almost a year, but it still appears pretty damaged. I am still trying to find a holy grail leave in conditioner. So, anytime I get to try a new one out I’m excited.

Ellovi Ginger Lemon Lip Butter $5

I have wanted to try the Ellovi Lip butters for so long! They are made of only 6 ingredients, and come in a pretty nice variety of flavors. I have tried their body scrub in the past, which I did not love. But, I am very thankful that I finally have the opportunity to try out the Lip Butter. Especially right now when my entire mouth is so sore and my lips are crazy dry.

Estate Cosmetics Liquid Lip “Shade” $12

I have never heard of the brand Estate, but they have me intrigued. The packaging is very Eye-catching, and that’s coming from someone who isn’t the biggest fan of pink.

The shade I received is called “shade.” It is a pretty rosy shade, which is the type of shade I have really been leaning towards lately. The formula seems very comfortable and light weight.

That is it for my December VC Beauty Box! Are there any of these products you are interested in or have tried? Comment below!

Lush Sleepy Body Lotion | A Bath and Body Care Review.

I have a problem. I am addicted to lotions and soaps. Most recently, I have been really getting into Lush.

For what I think is my first body care post, we are going to focus on Lush’s sleepy!

I am sure you can gather from the body lotions name, it is meant to aid you in sleep, and moisturize your body of course. If you have bad insomnia like I do, anything that offers to help aid in the sleeping experience sounds very inviting.

The sweet lavender and tonka perfume are meant to make you feel at ease, while the glycerin, cocoa butter, and almond oil moisturize your dry skin.


Oatmeal Infusion (Avena sativa) (Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract) Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) Lavender Water (Lavandula Angustifolia) (Lavandula Angustifolia Extract) Lavender Flower Infusion (Lavandula angustifolia) Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) Glycerine Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) Stearic Acid (Stearic acid) Illipe Butter (Shorea stenoptera) Triethanolamine Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia) Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre) (Styrax Tonkinensis Resin Extract) Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata) Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata) Cetearyl Alcohol *Benzyl Benzoate *Benzyl Cinnamate *Coumarin *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool Fragrance Snowflake Lustre (Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide (Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide, Red 28, Blue 1, Iron Oxides, Tin Oxide) Red 28 Blue 1 *Occurs naturally in essential oils

*the ingredient listing is taken directly from the Lush USA website.*

This lotion is cruelty free, free of synthetic preservatives, and is also vegan. The tub it is in is made out of recycled plastic.

How I use it:

*Sorry if my font changed, it occurred when I added the ingredient list from the Lush site.*

Before I start relaxing in bed for the night I apply “Sleepy” all over my body. Making sure to get my chest, so I can really inhale the scent. Then I light a candle and get to relaxing.

A little tip, use the Lush body wash in “Twilight” during your night time shower, it has a very similar scent to the lotion.

What I think:

Sleeping is tough for me, and I wasn’t expecting this lotion to be a fix all. I don’t think it is helping me fall asleep, but it does help me to relax, which is pretty close!

Is this a product I will continue to purchase? I think it is! It smells amazing, is pretty clean, does its general job, and the product itself is purple!

You can purchase the “Sleepy” lotion, Here!

The 3.1oz, which is what I got, retails for $9.95.

I hope this short post was some how helpful! What Is your favorite thing to help you sleep?
