Reviewed By: Batting A Lash

How amazing! Make-up artist and beauty blogger Jill from the awesome Batting A Lash just sent me this great review of our products:

Bright Eyes: This eye product is an oil but light and absorbs right into the skin leaving no oily residue or greasiness. I love this since I always feel like my eyes are not getting enough moisture and need more love then I give them. This stuff seems to be helping my skin feel better instantly. The little eyedropper is great too...I hate contaminating a product's bottle with my fingers, and now I don't.

Good Day Face Oil: This is a lifesaver for my awful dry cheeks. Once again this stuff is so light that it absorbs right into the skin. No grease or oil is left behind, just soft skin. I like this one the most.

High Five: For my dry little fingers and hands...have you seen my hands. Ick. Dry is not the word, I get cuts and cracks all over my hands. This oil absorbs fast and hydrates perfectly. I love this oil.

I like the Canadian/Local factor, I like that I am helping out a local company with good principles about natural skin care. I love that they have a baby rub product that is safe for babies to use (babies need products that are edible since they stick their parts in their mouths). I love how they moisturize and how well they work. I also find their prices really reasonable. The fact that the oils are not oily is amazing. I love how fast they absorb and how well they work.

Thanks so much, Jill! I'm so thrilled that you're enjoying everything....I'm looking forward to wowing you with more great products soon!

bright eyes

I'm not exaggerating - this has got to be one of my favourite new things!

My wonderful friend Olivia is one of the first ladies that I started making blends for, and thanks to her requests for "something smoothing for under-eye use", Bright Eyes was born. (Who can resist? Total Eclipse of the Heart is such a great song too...)

This awesome lightweight serum comes with a glass dropper, so you can use just a drop on each of your ring fingers to lightly pat the goodness under those soulful peepers of yours.

Key Ingredients:
Fractionated Coconut Oil is deeply nourishing, yet glides on lightly with a silky finish. Carrot Oil is amazing for smoothing delicate and sensitive skin, while my favourite powerhouse oils, Argan, Borage, and Evening Primrose feed the skin with beneficial essential fatty acids. Essential oils of Rose and Neroli help rejuvenate sleepy skin.

I've also been using this as a very light makeup primer, and I've noticed that everything glides on a bit smoother...double duty is always great in my books!

Available in the shop now.
