March 2013 Faves!

Last month, I didn't do a faves post mostly because I had nothing new to talk about. This month I have a bunch of new favourites to share. Be forewarned, I haven't even done a review on some of the items mentioned but I will.

Hair Care

Badger Seabuckthorn Antioxidant Hair Oil - review here - My scalp and hair just drink up this oil to reveal beautiful, luscious locks and a healthy, happy scalp. It's so nourishing and rich and amazing and I love it and you should go out and buy it and I'm done saying and. I think a 2nd grader could of written a better sentence. I've been absolutely loving it this month.

Skin Care

Homemade Makeup Removing Oil Cleanser - no review - I made this oil cleanser because I wanted to make use of the oils that I had sitting around. It removes my makeup so nicely and has been aiding in keeping my skin clear (I think). It's literally 3 parts apricot kernel oil, 1 part castor oil and chamomile (to calm) and lime (to brighten) essential oils. I don't enjoy the scent but it doesn't linger. I'll do a full DIY/review soon.

Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream - review here - I literally reach for this cream when my skin is dry, irritated, breaking out or just angry in general. It's my go to moisturizer.

Camocare Organics Instant Radiance AHA Lifting Peel - no review - This stuff smells like straight up lemon vodka. Please refrain from drinking. I use it only a couple of times a week, at night only, because it tingles and burns but it does make my skin look brighter and dries up any acne that I might have. I have been really enjoying it this month.

Dr. Alkaitis Nourishing Treatment Oil - no review - omg this stuff smells absolutely amazing!! It's like walking into a health food/natural store but better. I love using this on my face, morning and night, for extra hydration. The full size is $80, so I'm clinging to this for dear life lol.

Dr. Alkaitis Eye Cream - no review -  This eye cream is moisturizing and I find that it does help with fine lines. It's like an instant eye lift when first applied, sadly the effects don't last. Maybe they do, I haven't been using it long enough to notice an obvious difference. It works great under makeup, doesn't irritate my eyes and I literally need a tiny, tiny amount for both eyes.


Ilia Lip Conditioner in Arabian Knights - no review -  My boyfriend bought this for me and I have been wearing it every single day since receiving it. It can be applied as a wash of colour, built up or layered. It's hydrating and just a gorgeous colour that I can see myself using in any season.

MarieNatie Lip Gloss in Nearly Wild - review here - These glosses taste like cinnamon and sugar, so delicious! I love applying this over any lip colour to add some shine and moisturize my lips. MarieNatie is going to be at the Green Living Show in Toronto and I plan on picking up a couple of lip glosses.

Pure+Simple Blush in Glow - review here - I think it's obvious that I absolutely love this blush colour. If not, then it will be now! I apply this on it's own or over the next fave because it's just gorgeous.

The All Natural Face Cream Blush in Touch of Rose - review here - This was my least favourite cream blush from TANF because the shade didn't match what was on their website, however, it is now the blush I reach for daily. Let me explain. This is not really a blush, it's more of a highlight than anything. I like using this on no makeup days to give my skin a dewy appearance/finish and I love layering it under Glow for the same dewy finish. I call this the "make your skin glow" blush. Love it.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bronzer & Blush - review here - I have been using the bronzer side of this duo for months as my crease colour. It is the perfect matte brown shade to use with any look.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush - no review - How did I live without this brush for so long?! It works fantastic for buffing mineral makeup into the skin and for cream blush. I love it and will do a full review of the RT brushes soon.

What have you been loving this month?


  1. Great choices! I completely agree with you about the ANF cream blushes - once I got over them not looking how I was expecting, I actually love them all :)

    1. Thanks! They are pretty wonderful huh? Looking forward to summer to wear some of the brighter ones!

  2. Some great choices! I love the look of the badger hair oil and the real techniques buffing brush is what I use for my mineral foundation everyday. The RT kabuki is great too :) x

    1. Thanks! You must try the hair oil, it's so nice! Kabuki brush you say, hmm, haven't seen it here yet but I'll pick it up when I do. Xo

  3. I wish we had Physicians Formula in the UK

    1. I'm surprised that you don't. If there's something that you really want I don't mind sending it to you :)

  4. Definitely want to try the Badger Hair Oil! I'm interested in that Pure+Simple brand as well, but not sure how to get it in the US!

    1. For a Badger lover, I'm blown away that you haven't lol. Pure+Simple ships to the US but it's like $20 and the blushes are very likey to break during shipping

  5. This Badger oil is haunting me :p I need to get my hands on this baby :)


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
