Since beginning my journey towards green living many years ago, I wanted to make sure I never compromised on quality or glam factor. This ensured there was no frustration which could cause me to throw in the white flag and give in to the toxic beauty industry. Thankfully, there are so many amazing green beauty brands dedicated to bringing high end and quality products to conscious consumers.

Now that you’ve got all the deets, here is a little bit about each product based on my own opinions so you can get to know these products a little bit better:
ReClaym Salted Deluxe Chocolate Face Mask
ReClaym is an Australian based company that focuses on skin care treatments that are made primarily from clays. They have a range of 4 different clay masks and they’ve perfected this masking game. I am a fan of clay masks for their ability to properly balance oil in your skin, draw impurities from beneath skin layers by their cathartic action, and provide the skin with healing, nourishing nutrients and vitamins that come from the earth. The
salted chocolate clay mask is their detoxifying mask (perfect for holidays when our diets may waiver slightly) and it did not fail me! It smells like a cup of morning coffee as it contains:
Natural Coffee grinds: which add a dose of caffeine to your skin which is well known to tighten, reduce wrinkles and plump the skin delivering some powerful anti-aging properties.
Raw Cacao: which is the rawest form of the “chocolate bean” before it is processed and becomes cocoa products. Cacao is far superior to it’s close relative Cocoa due to the fact that it isn’t processed, therefore contains much higher antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamins.
Australian Beige Bentonite Clay Bentonite clay is well known as being a cathartic ingredient which draws out bacteria and impurities from beneath your skin. This evades current and future blemishes or break outs of the skin leaving you with clearer, brighter, and even looking skin.
Jojoba Oil and Oatmeal: these ingredients penetrate your skin while the mask is on to deliver a hydrating, calming effect, and a silky smooth finish to the skin. This is key as many clay masks forgo moisturizing agents and cause excessive drying to the skin post masking. I noticed that my skin was still bright, dewy and glowing after the treatment and didn’t require an immediate dose of every moisturizer I own!
My skin was bright, well circulated, and smooth after this mask and it even improved tenfold overnight!
Axiology Lipstick in “Identity”
Axiology is a vegan and cruelty free company that delivers the most moisturizing and colour packed lipsticks! They are made with all organic, nourishing ingredients like avocado oil, avocado butter, grape seed oil, coconut oil, elderberry extract, sweet orange oil and more, which basically deliver a treatment to your lips while you wear it.
I fell head over heels with their line and particularily the shade “Identity” which is
my new go to shade that delivers that “my lips but better” colour. Axiology describes this shade best “Inspired by the rush of peony season, Identity is a glittering cool pink with a lavender lean. This dreamy hue is perfect for a look that needs a subtle touch of off-beat colour- while staying classic and collected.” I couldnt have said it better myself!
I have been searching high and low for that perfect shade for years and while I had a few contenders, nothing has held up to my new found love for Identity. The bonus to wearing Axiology lipstick is the level of nourishment your lips receive from the ingredients. I have a tendency to see the lines in my lips while wearing certain brands but I haven’t had that problem once with this lip saver! This lipstick is permanently living in my purse as my go-to everyday colour and I won’t live without it! (I’ve included two additional photos at the end of this article, a close up and a lip swatch, to give you a closer look at the shade of ‘Identity’)
Metta Vanilla Body Butter
Metta is widely known in the green beauty world as one of the higher quality skin care lines. Their body butters are reviewed highly by many top beauty bloggers and the ingredients they make their magic with are so nourishing it is ridiculous! Their vanilla body butter is a skin care dream as it contains high grade ingredients and is handcrafted in small batches to ensure optimum potency and freshness! Metta’s body butters come in a very generous size and are packaged in glass jars which
preserve their potency. Once you open the jar, the gorgeous vanilla scent (which mimics the delicious aroma of fresh baked cookies) will have you hooked. The butter appears solid when first opened but as soon as you start digging into it you will find that it comes fluffy, as soon as you massage the butter into your skin it melts right in with the warmth leaving you silky smooth and smelling divine! This body butter will provide intense nutrients and nourish your skin while protecting it from harsh conditions (like our cold cold weather!).
Hurraw Moon Balm Lip Treatment
(picture in the middle of the photo)
“Lull yourself to sleep with this extra thick, extra creamy night balm that nourishes your lips while you sleep. Infused with vanilla, Peru Balsam and Blue Chamomile it will help calm and soothe your senses for some true beauty z’s!”
-All Natural Collection
…I am addicted! This lip treatment is best applied overnight while you sleep (but really could be worn anytime). It has a soft
vanilla flavour and is infused with blue chamomile. It works and feels exactly as described above. The creamy texture is to die for and I like to look at it as an “overnight mask” for your lips. This is no ordinary lip balm and it has a safe spot in my pockets and bag all day long. Moon Balm is particularily helpful during our harshest temperatures (hot or cold), especially in winter when lips get easily chapped.
Hurraw Lip Balms in Vanilla Bean and Chocolate
(pictured above with Moon Balm)
These balms will pair perfectly with the moon balm lip treatment, offering a continuous dose of moisture to your lips when you aren’t giving them a masking treatment. I chose both Vanilla and Chocolate from their line as these flavours go so well with the holidays and all of the delicious scents of baked goods kicking around! These lip balms are vegan, cruelty free and filled with nourishing ingredients to keep your lips plump, dewy, and hydrated!
Eco Minerals Highlighter in ‘White Light Illuminate’
This product is from an Australian based company that creates mineral make up that is free of harsh ingredients such as Bismuth Oxychloride (a well known culprit in some of the biggest mineral make up companies, which will clog pores and cause break outs). This line has some gorgeous powder foundations that cover beautifully and so I wanted to showcase one of my favourite products from them,
the ‘White Light Illuminate’. This powder is a highlighter that creates a soft glow on cheekbones, nose, & cupids bow. I love the subtle gleam of this powder and the fact that it doesn’t over do it but leaves you with a beautiful iridescent finish.
Eco Minerals Bronzer in Eco Exotic
(pictured above with white light illuminate)
This is a second Eco Minerals product that I thought would be a great addition to our deluxe holiday box as most of us are losing our summer glow more and more everyday. This mineral bronzer from Eco Minerals is a nice warm tone that goes on soft and creates a nice sunkissed glow. This can be used on the apples on your cheeks in place of a blush or can be swept up the cheekbones to provide a bit of a contour.
Eco Minerals Kabuki Brush
Last but not least we just had to add in the Eco Minerals Kabuki Brush to help with application of the Illuminate and Bronzer. This brush is much softer than most of the conventional kabuki brushes I’ve used in the past thanks to the fact that it is made out of synthetic bristles rather than animal fur. In fact, vegan brushes made of synthetic fibres last longer thanks to the fact that they don’t shed nearly as much and don’t break down after being used for make up and brush washing. This brush
will last you for a very long time and can be used to apply any powder foundation perfectly!
This Box is Limited Edition and is a chance to experience a wide range of full size natural beauty products for less! You can buy as a gift for a loved one, split it up for stocking stuffers, or even keep it for yourself (because everyone deserves a personal treat now and then). Dont forget to use code ‘BLOOM’ for an extra $20 off.
