I hope that you’re as excited as I am about it being the long weekend!!! What do you have planned for your weekend? We plan on spending lots of time with family celebrating a couple birthdays and Easter!
I’m both happy and excited about today’s post. Have you heard of Naturallaturallyvain.ca/lovelylife? If not and if you are a lover of natural beauty products and supporting local businesses, you have to check them out. They are an Ottawa based company that makes handmade and natural beauty products.
I don’t know about you but when I was younger, I never really paid attention to whether or not the products I was using on my body were natural, let alone healthy. As I’ve grown older (they do say that you become wiser with age ;)) and gained a greater respect for my body, I’ve been more aware of what I not only put in my body but what I put on it.
One of the many cool things about Naturallyvain.ca/lovelylife is that it started as a small family business. The owner’s mother (side note: you know how much I love and support moms ;)) became concerned with the products that her family was using since they contained chemicals and preservatives so she decided to create her own line of shampoos and soaps using the best natural oils and butters available.
Her passion for creating healthy and natural beauty products for her children was then extended to friends and family. Soon after, she began selling her products locally at trade shows and in small boutiques and due to the increasing demand for her products, her daughters created NaNaturallyvain.ca/lovelylife.
The business stays true to its original intent, which was to create handmade and natural beauty products that families around the world can feel good about using.
So what do they make? Well, they offer incredible soap and bath products as well as products for your body, face, and hair. They also offer aromatherapy products but I haven’t yet had an opportunity to try them out.
So far, I’ve tried the following products:
I don’t know about you but I ‘ve been struggling to find an effective eye cream to help with both my puffiness and dark circles. I’ve tried eye creams made by Khiels, Olay and many others but haven’t found one that I love. I’m happy to report that I’ve been using this eye cream, twice daily, for about a month now and love it. There are many pros to this product, besides being all natural, vegan and cruelty-free. This cream goes on SO well! It’s not only light but it has both a soft and cooling effect to it and it doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. It’s also sold for only $30 and the container that it’s sold in is generously packed with this beautiful cream.
I have to say that I’m super pumped about this product. I’ve noticed a definite improvement in my under eyes. Specifically, my puffiness which is now gone. I still have my dark circles but I don’t think that those will disappear in a month 😉 I look forward to continuing to use this product and I’m happy that it’s become a part of my beauty routine. For those who struggle with dark circles or could use a little pick me up ;), you should definitely give this product a try and check it out at naturallyvain.ca/lovelylife.
Next up is their Vitamin C Fix (anti-aging cream)
This multipurpose cream is great for your both your face and body! Especially this time of the year when our skin needs a great moisturizer. The vitamin C and E in this anti-aging cream rejuvenates tired-looking skin and the rosehip refined carrier oil improves the look of any scars or stretch marks that you may have. I’ve always had sensitive skin and struggle with acne scarring so I have to be very careful with what I put on my face. Typically, I only use Clarins since I react to everything else, however, I didn’t react to either of these products which is impressive. I’m convinced that it’s due to the fact that the ingredients used in them are all natural. Another pro is that this anti-aging cream is also sold for only $30 a bottle. SO affordable, right!? Make sure to stop by their website at naturallyvain.ca/lovelylife and try it out.
Last, but not least, are their bath bombs. You have to check them out!!! They sent me their peaceful zen bath bomb and it was such a relaxing treat and I mean that. It smells so good, you want literally want to eat it. They offer over a dozen bath bombs, each made with a variety of essential oils that are good for your skin. Even better, they only cost $7 each so go ahead and treat yourself. You and your skin deserve it.
Overall guys, I’m very impressed with this local business and their products. Not only do they smell delicious, their products actually work at keeping your skin both hydrated and rejuvenated. I highly recommend that you give their products a try and that you support this natural, local, Canadian company.
For those who have tried their products, what are your favourite ones? I would love to hear about them so please leave a comment below.
That’s all for now. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter long weekend and that its filled with visits with friends and family, fabulous food and lots of choco treats ;).
