Born from the potent ingredients found in grapes, Caudalie may seem new to us at Sephora, but in the ultra fine French skin care world, they've made a name for themselves for over 20 years. Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser ($28) was an impulse buy at Sephora. I hate to admit it, but I'm a sucker for those bins at the check out lines where they always seem to get me with one sample/mini product of some kind or the other.
Happens all the time!
At the time I had been dealing with a lot of irritation & inflammation on my face and although I had switched my moisturizer, I was still experiencing some irritation and suspected my face cleanser.
I had been meaning to purchase a cleanser at my holistic skin care store, but never got around to it, I impulsively picked this up in hopes that it would work. At fist I was skeptical about this cleanser's claims because I wasn't too familiar with the brand or reviews but what had me sold was that the bottle indicated it was free of parabens & does not include irritating ingredients like sulfates and others.
Caudalie's skin-care line is based on the polyphenols in red wine, distinctively the compound resveratrol which has been proven to help beat the effects of aging, such as dry & dull skin, wrinkles and premature aging due to sun damage and it's also a powerful antioxidant.
The Brand & its ingredients
Hemp has got to be the most demonized and misunderstood plant on the planet. You would never think that with the strong ban against this plant that the United States at some point thrived economically, due to Hemp aka Marijuana production.
Hemp was grown throughout the United States for industrial purposes from fabric, food, bio fuel and many more essential uses.
It is also said that the Declaration of Independence was drafted on hemp paper and farmers were encouraged to cultivate and grow hemp due to its varied uses and durability from ropes and building structures among many medicinal uses as well. It also got the U.S. through WWII.
So why the aggressive ban on such a self sufficient & fruitful plant?
Social, political and monetary reasons, contributed to the worldwide ban of cultivating this plant which led the misinformation about not just hemp as a drug, but other medicinal plants as well.
Today, a lot of information is resurfacing about hemp and how we can use it in virtually everyday products you can imagine from the foods we eat, beauty products we use and even the clothes we wear can all be derived from this one plant.
What is Hemp Protein & will I get High!?
D.I.Y body treatments with Salt doesn't get much notice considering its use in skincare dates back to thousands of years where even Cleopatra indulged in Salt beautifying treatments due to its healing properties.
Foundation primers are a recent discovery for me and a makeup favorite of the moment. As you all know, I'm on a mission to discover new, natural, organic & toxic free beauty & personal care items. Luckily, Juice Beauty has become a very reliable brand when it comes to those qualities.
For the longest time I steered away from foundation primers because I always felt like it was an unnecessary step, too many questionable ingredients and might make my skin look too "cakey". After receiving a sample primer & trying it out for some time, I realized the purpose of having a good primer under your makeup wasn't so unnecessary after all.
Primers smooths out your skin, improves texture and helps my makeup last longer with little to no touch ups. Although its not a step I do everyday, it is something I make sure I incorporate during those special events where I may wear more makeup than usual.

A few weeks ago I came across this article where Johnson & Johnson awarded a woman’s family $72 Million dollars due to the many years of using the company’s baby powder which contributed to her ovarian cancer and death. Turns out Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder (among many powders) contains Talc, a known carcinogen.
And that stuff is for babies?
I've also read a few articles where hundreds of lipsticks that were tested for heavy metals were found to contain high levels of lead, a neuro toxin and aluminum among other questionable chemicals.
So…all these toxins.…who’s regulating and who’s benefiting?
Tea has seriously become my obsession in these past few years. It's such an easy and convenient way to connect with a variety of herbs + spices allowing you to become more intimate with the healing properties of many herbs as opposed to just popping a supplement capsule or pill.
Drinking tea regularly has improved my digestion, bloating and curbs my sweet tooth. Its also a nice way to get a boost of energy at the start of my day as well as a relaxant before bed.
One favorite tea I'm revisiting today is Turmeric Tea.
Old English wyrd ‘destiny,’ of Germanic origin. The adjective (late Middle English) originally meant ‘having the power to control destiny,’ and was used especially in the Weird Sisters, originally referring to the Fates, later the witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth ; the latter use gave rise to the sense ‘unearthly’ (early 19th century).
