It took a bit of time to get this post together. I have so many favourites for different purposes. So at long last here is my list of the things I tried/discovered in 2013 that really made an impression on me.
Cleanser: Holistic Vanity – Rejuvenating Rosewater Cleanser. Full review to come. It’s just so soothing!
Toner: Marie Veronique Organics – Treatment Mist. Full review here.. Great to apply after a freshly washed face & also to set makeup.
Serum: Antipodes – Hosanna Intense H20 Serum. Full review here. So hydrating I can’t do without this for long.
Masks: May Lindstrom – The Problem Solver. See empties post here. It’s the best all around mask I’ve tried so far & I keep coming back to it. Also works great as a spot treatment.
Concealer: W3ll People – Narcissist Concealer & Foundation. See empties post here. I use this as a concealer. Great stuff!
Foundation: Haut Cosmetics – Bio Mineral Foundation. See full review here. Best loose mineral foundation I’ve ever used. Bonus that it’s a Canadian brand & a Clean Care Member.
Eyeshadow: Pure Anada – Read full review here. Nice loose mineral eye shadows. I’m going to try their pressed eyeshadow next. Canadian Brand as well!
Lipstick/Lip gloss: Marie Natie – Lip gloss. Review to come. Just got their lip gloss in December & loving it already. Smells & tastes delicious. Colour goes on smoothly & semi-sheer. A Clean Care Member & Canadian brand!
Rahua – Finishing Treatment & Voluminous Conditioner. See full review here. I use the Voluminous Conditioner as a detangler & leave-in conditioner! Finishing Treatment is perfect for days I want a more natural look. It’s better as a setting cream.
Yarok – Feed Your Do. See full review here. Perfect for giving my natural curls hold without being crunchy.
Soap: I’m torn between Ground Soap (see review here) & Olive Authentique! It’s a tie!
Hand cream: Pure Anada – Read full review here. It’s so luxurious!
Body lotion: World Salon Protect – No review yet. This is a multi-tasking product that also works as a conditioner, detangler, & body lotion. But I like it best as a body lotion.
