Ecoya Lip Balm, Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit Guava

Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit Guava
Vsestranska krema oziroma maslo v obliki stika. Imam močan in zelo sladek, tropski vonj, diši po guavi. Vsebuje sestavine, kot so sončnično in kokosovo olje, karitejevo in kakavovo maslo, ekstrakt marakuje in guave, čebelji vosek. Kremico uporabljam predvsem za nočno nego rok in ustnic. Ker je v obliki stika, je res zelo preprosta za uporabo, kar je občasno ob večerih nadvse priročno. :) Hitro se vpije v kožo, jo krasno navlaži in zmehča. Super pa je tudi za stopala in komolce!

Ecoya Lip Balm
Balzam za ustnice luksuzne avstralske znamke Ecoya vsebuje olje makadamije in pšeničnih kalčkov, avokadovo olje, karitejevo maslo, čebelji vosek, manuka med, eterično olje poprove mete (pepermint) in vitamin E. Balzam je zelo vlažilen pa še lepo in sveže diši po meti. Všeč mi je črna tubica, še ljubši pa mi je pečatni žig na škatlici. Zelo lep detajl! In če že omenjam embalažo, pozimi balzam ni bil najbolj priročen, ker so se masla strdila in balzam je bilo iz tubice skoraj nemogoče iztisniti. A ob trenutnem vremenu, je odličen!

This week I've been loving Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit - Guava. It has a strong and sweet tropical scent, it smells kinda like guava. The scent really grow on me! It contains coconut and sunflower oil, shea and cocoa butter, passion fruit and guava extract, beeswax and some more. I love using it in the evenings on my hands and lips. It absorbs quickly and moisturises really well. It's also great for dry elbows and feet!
Next product is a Lip balm from the beautiful and luxurious brand Ecoya from Australia. It contains macadamia nut oil, shea butter, avocado oil, beeswax, manuka honey, wheat germ oil, vitamin E and peppermint oil. Lip balm is very moisturizing and it also smells nice and fresh. I guess I like mint smelling products on my lips, didn't know that. :) I like the sleek black packaging but the one thing I'm in love with is the "wax" seal on the box. I love small details like that! The one thing I wasn't to keen on is in fact the packaging which isn't the best for winter because the butters solidify and it's kinda hard to squeeze out the balm from the tube. But at the moment I've been really enjoying it!

What have you been loving this week? :)

My Take On Lavender Grains

March 24, 2014


Tiste, ki poznate ameriško znamko Hana Organics, potem po naslovu veste o čem govorim. Tiste, ki ne, pa naj vam povem, da je Lavender Grains eden izmed čudovitih izdelkov, ki jih znamka ponuja. Gre za nežno čistilo za obraz, ki je sestavljeno iz preprostih sestavin, ki so me navdihnile, da sem ustvarila svojo različico. Če vas torej zanima kako narediti domače čistilo za obraz, potem le berite naprej.
Ingredients for DIY Homemade Face Cleanser Exfoliator
Sestavine lahko prilagodite po želji, za moj recept potrebujete:
- rhassoul in zeleno glino,
- ovsene kosmiče,
- mandlje,
- posušen ognjič,
- posušeno sivko in
- posušene vrtnične cvetove.

V izdelku naj bo največ ovsenih kosmičev in najmanj cvetlic. Vse skupaj zmeljite v kavnem mlinčku, premešajte in stresite v steklen lonček. Glina se v stiku s kovino kemično spremeni, zato za uporabo priporočam keramično ali leseno žličko in ne kovinske.
DIY Lavender Grains Cleanser Exfoliator
DIY Cleanser Scrub Mask
Izdelek uporabljam kot čistilo, a ne za odstranjevanje ličil temveč kot zadnji korak pri čiščenju obraza. Kot prvi korak pa ob dnevih, ko nisem naličena in zjutraj. Čistilo v roki zmešam z malo vode, nanesem na obraz in s krožnimi gibi zmasiram. Čistilo obenem deluje tudi kot nežen piling, ki kožo pusti zelo mehko in prav nič suho. Zaradi ovsenih kosmičev pa kožo tudi pomirja. Poleg tega pa ga lahko uporabite še kot masko za obraz. Običajno jo zmešam z žličko medu in nekaj kapljicami arganovega olja, lahko pa zmešate tudi z vodo. Zaradi gline odstranite po 10 minutah. Čistilo diši po sivki ter je primerno za vse tipe kože. Glina deluje očiščevalno, ovseni kosmiči in rože, sploh ognjič, pa kožo pomirjajo, zato je izdelek primeren tudi za občutljivo kožo.
DIY Face Wash Cleanser and Gentle Exfoliator
DIY Face Wash Clay Flowers Oats Almonds
Čistilo ima trojno delovanje, je super preprosto za izdelavo, učinkovito ter primerno za vse tipe kože. Za razliko od originalnega izdelka, ki stane več kot 25€ pa je moja različica tudi zelo poceni. In če vas zanima še več o podobnih mešanicah glin, cvetlic in hrane, kliknite tukaj. Lise je napisala nekaj objav na to temo, tako da le pobrskajte po blogu še za kakšen recept.

If you know about the beautiful brand Hana Organics than you probably guessed what's the deal with the title. I'm talking about a cleanser and exfoliator that goes by the name Lavender Grains. I'd love to try it, it looks so lovely that it inspired me to do my version of the face wash and I've been really loving it! If you are like me and you can't afford the product than you can try making your own. I used rhassoul and green clay, oats, almonds, dried calendula, lavender and rose. You can see that I used lots of oats and just a little bit of flowers. Grind and mix them together with a coffee grinder and put in a glass jar. Scoop out with a ceramic or a wooden spoon and avoid metallic spoons because they change the chemical compound of clay. 
I've been using it as a face wash on days when I don't have any makeup on and in the mornings. It doesn't work as a makeup remover but as a second cleanser. I mix it with a bit of water and gently massage onto my face. It works great as a gentle scrub, it leaves my skin so smooth and soft. Oats really calm and soothe my skin, I'm sure all you regular readers know how much I love them! But if all that is not enough for you, it can be also used as a face mask. I love to add some honey and a bit of vegetable oil of choice to the mixture but you can mix it with water too. Because it contains clay I only leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off.
So there you have it, a DIY face wash/scrub/mask which is really simple to make, effective, inexpensive and suitable for all skin types. If you wanna know more about these face washes with clays, flowers and food head over to Lise's blog. She wrote a few recipes that are definitely worth a try!


Have a great week,
Jana xx

Acure Calming Body Lotion

March 19, 2014


"It's been a long day. Luckily, this calming lotion is here to help you decompress." 

Današnja objava je namenjena vsem ljubiteljicam sivke. Že nekaj časa nisem pisala o Acure izdelkih, zato vam bom predstavila njihov Pomirjujoči losjon za telo s sivko.
 Acure je ameriško družinsko podjetje. Izdelki niso testirani na živalih, so brez parabenov, sulfatov, ftalatov, škodljivih konzervansov in umetnih barvil. Losjon za telo ne vsebuje nobenih sestavin živalskega izvora in je primeren tudi za tiste, ki uporabljajo le veganske izdelke.
Vsebuje mešanico antioksidantnih sestavin, kot so acai jagode, robide, šipek in granatano jabolko, ognjič, kamilico, rooibos, aloe vera sok, kakavovo maslo, kokosovo in arganovo olje. Seveda vsebuje tudi sivko in losjon neverjetno lepo diši, zelo naravno, kot da bi vonjal pravo sivko. Verjetno tako dišijo sivkina polja, čudovito! Vonj se na koži nekaj časa tudi obdrži in lahko si mislite, da deluje res pomirjujoče. Več kot odličen je za večerno uporabo. Poleg tega pa kožo odlično vlaži, in to cel dan. Tekstura losjona je dokaj gosta, a ne tako kot masla za telo. Krasno se razmaže in takoj vpije.
Losjon lahko kupite na iHerbu, 240 ml stane malo več kot 6€. Priporočam, sploh, če obožujete sivko! Če pa vas morda bolj navdušuje vonj citrusov, potem nedvomno potrebujete ta losjon.

It's been quite a while since I talked about Acure products so today's post is about one of their body lotions. Now, if you're a fan of lavender this one is a must! Acure Calming Body Lotion contains some amazing ingredients like acai berry, blackberry, rosehip, calendula, aloe vera juice, cocoa butter, coconut and argan oil and more. The hero ingredient is lavender essential oil. And let me tell you, it smells exactly like fresh lavender! The scent is very natural and I really like it. You can imagine how calming it is, I absolutely love using it in the evenings! The texture is lovely, kinda like a more runny body butter, just perfect. Lotion absorbs quickly, almost right away and leaves no sticky feeling or anything like that. And it moisturize my skin all day. I mean, all night. :) 
I really recommend it, especially if you love lavender. But if you prefer a fresh citrus scent then go for this one.

Calendula Balm

March 16, 2014


Vsake toliko časa moja koža postane zelo občutljiva. Na obrazu se mi pojavijo rdeči madeži za katere sploh ne vem kaj so in zakaj se pojavijo. Po eni strani izgledajo kot brazgotine zaradi mozoljev in po drugi kot rdeče lise suhe kože. Običajno se mi pojavijo na enem licu in takrat moj najljubši prijatelj postane ognjič oziroma ognjičevo mazilo. Ognjič je ena izmed najbolj zdravilnih rastlin, jaz jo nedvomno obožujem. Flavonoidi, eterično olje in triterpeni v ognjiču delujejo pomirjujoče, protivnetno ter pomlajevalno. Pripravki iz ognjiča pomagajo pri različnih kožnih obolenjih, pri celjenju ran in odrgnin, pri modricah, blažijo opekline, krčne žile, akne in kožne izpuščaje. Moja mami vedno pravi, namaži se z ognjičem pa bo hitro izginilo. :)
Ognjičevo mazilo, Calendula Balm
Ognjičevo mazilo je torej zelo zelo praktično in vsem ga toplo priporočam. Zanj potrebujete:
- 200 g macerata ognjiča v olivnem olju
- 20 g čebeljega voska
- (za lešnik smrekove smole)

Najprej je potrebno izdelati macerat ali zeliščno olje. Zanj potrebujete sveže cvetove ognjiča, ki jih položite v steklen kozarec za vlaganje. Cvetove nato prelijte z deviškim in hladno stiskanim olivnim oljem, pokrijte z gazo in pustite stati na temnem 3 tedne. Izdelovanja macerata se sicer rahlo razlikuje glede na spletne strani, nekateri svetujejo hranjenje na soncu in dlje časa a mislim, da je tudi na temnem dobro. Če pa kdo ve zakaj je boljše na soncu, pa naj le pove. :)

Po treh tednih olje precedite. Nato v dvojni posodi - v skledi nad vodo stopite čebelji vosek. Če v mazilu želite več močnih protimikrobnih učinkovin, dodajte malo smrekove smole. Smola je prav tako zelo zdravilna. Ko sem bila mlajša, sem imela po prstih kar nekaj bradavic in smola je uničila vse! Ko se obe sestavini počasi stopita, posodo odstranite s štedilnika, počakajte, da se rahlo ohladi in dodajte olivno olje z ognjičem. Premešajte, po potrebi ponovno stopite in vlijte v posodice.

Mazilo lahko uporabite večkrat na dan in za praktično karkoli! Odlično deluje pri zdravljenju ran, komarjevih pikov, mozoljih, rdečici. Ognjičevo mazilo je čudovit pripravek za občutljivo kožo, preobčutljivost nanj se pojavi le redko.
Zdaj pa hitro posadite ognjič, sadi se od marca do zgodnjega poletja in nato izdelajte ognjičevo mazilo! :)

Za tiste, ki se vam z izdelovanjem mazila ne ljubi ukvarjati pa priporočam enega izmed naslednjih izdelkov. 
Products with Calendula, Fushi, Spiezia, Trevarno, MuLondon, Odylique

Je še katera tako navdušena nad ognjičem kot jaz? :)

Every now and then my skin becomes really sensitive. I don't know what happens but I get red spots or rashes, usually on one cheek. Not all over but just on one part, it's strange. On one hand it kinda looks like red scars like you get after acne and like red dry rashes on the other. I don't know what that is but when I get them I go straight to my calendula balm. Calendula or marigold is one of the most healing herbs, definitely one of my favourites! It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and rejuvenating properties. It works wonders on irritations and infections of the skin, it's amazing for treating wounds, cuts, scrapes, bruises, acne, rashes. 
For calendula balm you'll need 200 g of calendula infused extra virgin olive oil and 20 g of beeswax. First you need to infuse your oil. For that you'll need fresh flowers that you place in a clean, glass jar. Pour olive oil on top and cover with gauze. Leave it in a dark place for three weeks. My mom does it like that but some recommend placing it on a warm, sunny window sill. After three weeks strain it and you're ready for the final step. In a glass bowl melt beeswax over a double boiler. If you want more antimicrobial properties you can use a small amount of spruce resin. Melt both together and then add infused olive oil. Mix, pour into jars and use for whatever skin problem. It's an amazing ointment for sensitive skin and you can use it several times a day.
For those who can't be bothered with making your own balm, I also chose a few products that contain this beautiful flower. :)

Are you in love with Calendula as much as I am?

Have a lovely Sunday!

Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream

March 12, 2014


Pai Nežna krema za predel okoli oči s trpotčastim gadovcem in arganovim oljem* je bogata z gama-linolensko kislino in stearidonsko kislino - naravnima sestavinama, ki dokazano delujeta proti staranju. Pai izdelki so zasnovani za vse tipe kože, še posebej pa za občutljivo, zato je krema idealna za tanko in nežno kožo okoli oči.
Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream
 Veganska krema med drugim vsebuje različna olja, kot so arganovo in šipkovo olje, ter olje mareličnih pešk, karitejevo maslo, eterična olja geranije, pomaranče in jasmina. Ključna sestavina je trpotčasti gadovec, rastlina z visoko vsebnostjo stearidonske kisline. To je redka oblika omega 3 maščobne kisline, ki obnavlja kožo in gladi gubice. Vsebuje tudi velike količine gama-linolenske kisline, ki učinkovito deluje proti staranju in spodbuja obnavljanje kože.
Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream Ingredients
Pai Nežna krema za predel oči s trpotčastim gadovcem in arganovim oljem
Obožujem embalažo na pumpico in preprost a lep dizajn. Krema ima nežen, nevsiljiv vonj, je lahke teksture in odlične mazljivosti. Uporabljam jo več kot mesec dni, vsak dan zjutraj in zvečer. Nanesem jo na blazinico prstanca, segrejem med prstama in s tapkajočimi gibi nanesem okoli oči. Začnem pri zunanjem delu očes in kremo porazdelim po spodnji in zgornji veki. Krema se krasno in skoraj takoj vpije v kožo ter je odlična podlaga za nanos korektorja. Običajno zvečer nanesem še malo Pai Šipkovega olja* ali pa katerega drugega olja, ki ga uporabim za nego obraza. Kreme se porabi izjemno malo, en pritisk pumpice je zame preveč. 
Glede zmanjšanja gubic okoli oči ne morem veliko povedati, mislim, da bi za to morala kremo uporabljati dlje kot le en mesec. Je pa koža dobro navlažena in mislim, da pomaga tudi z zabuhlostjo. Sicer tega ne morem trditi z gotovostjo, ker s tem na srečo nimam težav, a eno jutro sem se zbudila z rahlo zabuhlimi očmi in po nanosu je zabuhlost takoj izginila.
Ker je krema še posebej oblikovana za občutljivo kožo, moram povedati, da so se mi po enem tednu uporabe na spodnji veki desnega očesa pojavili majhni izpuščaji oziroma rdeče pikice. Sprva sem bila rahlo razočarana nad izdelkom, a lišaji so hitro izginili in se po tem niso več ponovili. A naj vas to ne odvrne, ker je krema sicer čudovita, in ko sem prebirala ocene drugih, tega problema nisem zasledila nikjer. Morda pa je le tako učinkovita, da moja koža ni bila vajena. :P
Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream swatch
Kremo sem želela preizkusiti že zelo dolgo in res sem vesela, da jo končno imam saj sem z njo zelo zadovoljna. Priporočam! Izdelki proti staranju kože nikoli ne škodijo in mislim, da ni nikoli prekmalu, da jih vključimo v svojo nego. In če morda ne veste, krema je v prenovljeni 15ml embalaži, kar pomeni, da dobite več za enako ceno! :) Kupite jo lahko tukaj.


Translation
Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream* is a nourishing but gentle organic and vegan cream perfect for sensitive skin. It contains amazing ingredients like argan, rosehip seed and apricot kernel oil, shea butter, vegetable glycerin, some essential oils and others. The main ingredient is echium seed extract which is the richest known plant source of both gamma linolenic acid and stearidonic acid, two powerful skin conditioning and calming agents.
I love the bottle and the pump, really good for travel. Cream has a nice, delicate scent, nothing overpowering and a light and smooth texture. The application is amazing. You just gently tap it into your skin and you're good to go! It absorbs really quickly which is great because you don't have to wait to apply concealer. In the evenings I usully apply a bit of Pai Rosehip Oil* or some other oil on top of it but you don't have to. It's moisturizing and I think it also helps with puffy eyes. Fortunately I don't have problems with that but one morning I woke up with a bit of tired and puffy eyes and after applying the cream puffiness disappeared immediately. 
The one thing I didn't like about it is that it actually gave me a small rash on the lower lid of one eye. No, not rash but some kind of red spots, I don't know what was that but it was annoying. I really didn't expect it and I was slightly disappointed. Lucikly it quickly went away and I didn't get it since! And just so you know, I didn't use any other new products so I blame the eye cream. :) Really strange because I read other reviews and I guess it's just me who had that reaction. I don't know, maybe I wasn't used to such powerful ingredients. :P
That being said, the cream is great and I really recommend it! Eye cream looks beautiful, feels great and who doesn't want a cream that reduces the apperance of fine lines? :)

Brands I'd Love To Try

March 09, 2014


Nobena skrivnost ni, da rada testiram nove izdelke. Vedno najdem nove znamke, ki nato obtičijo na mojem predolgem spisku želja in trenutno me tri še posebej mamijo.

Prva je May Lindstrom Skin. Luksuzna naravna ter organska kozmetika, ki je razen enega izdelka tudi vegan in kot vsi izdelki o katerih pišem na blogu ni testirana na živalih. Brez sulfatov, pesticidov, umetnih barvil, ftalatov in tako naprej. Vse odkar sem to prečudovito znamko zasledila na različnih blogih želim preizkusiti vse!
May Lindstrom Skin
1. The Honey Mud - čistilo za obraz, ki se lahko uporablja tudi kot maska. Glavna sestavina je med, jaz pa sem v trenutni fazi popolne obsedenosti z medom, res je čudovita sestavina. Med drugim vsebuje še olje makadamije in kakavovo olje ter različna eterična olja, kot sta olje pomaranče in ylang ylang. Zgleda kot čokoladni puding in nekaj kar nujno potrebujem! :)
2. The Youth Dew - vlažilni serum za obraz vsebuje mešanico rastlinskih olj, kot so avokadovo, jojobino in šipkovo olje, olje rakitovca, eterična olja vrtnice, limone in grenivke ter koencim Q10. Z veseljem bi ga vključila v svojo večerno nego (zaradi določenih fototoksičnih eteričnih olj ga ne bi uporabljala čez dan).
3. The Blue Cocoon - balm oziroma maslo za čiščenje kože. Vsebuje olje kamelije, karitejevo in kakavovo maslo, baobab olje in še vrsto drugih organskih sestavin.
4. The Problem Solver - med vsemi me najbolj mika ta maska za obraz, že samo ime me takoj pritegne! Maska v prahu vsebuje izjemne sestavine, kot so rhassoul glina, surovi kakav, vitamin C, kurkuma in še in še. Maska naj bi se v stiku z vodo spremenila v mehki mousse in kdo tega ne bi želel preizkusiti?!

Druga znamka je Ravenscourt Apothecary za katero sem prvič slišala na Lizinem blogu, Smells Like a Green Spirit. Popolna kozmetika za vse ljubitelje klasične angleške književnosti in nasploh angleškosti ali kako bi se sploh izrazila. :) Kot ljubiteljica serij in filmov iz konca 19. in začetka oziroma prve polovice 20. stoletja mi je dizajn čudovit. Če obožujete Downton Abbey in podobne serije, potem bo brez dvoma tudi za vas. Med drugim imajo tudi parfum Elizabeth Bennet in Mr. Darcy. :)
Ravenscourt Apothecary
 1. Florida Rose Rooibos - milo, ki vsebuje moj preljubi rooibos. In med drugim še kokosovo in olivno olje, karitejevo maslo in eterično olje mandarine. In prosim kliknite na link ter poglejte zadnjo stran mila, odtis žiga na "vosek" je meni tako lep detajl. :)
2. Agnes Grey - balzam za ustnice z vonjem bergamotke in medu.
3. Lavender & Chocolate Body Butter - maslo za telo s kakavovim in karitejevim maslom, različnimi rastlinskimi olji in mešanico eteričnih olj. Ja prosim, želim dišati kot čokolada in sivka. :)
4. Calming Salve - večnamenski balm za celo telo z vonjem po vrtnici in sivki.
5. Alice - med vsemi izdelki so mi pa nedvomno najljubši parfumi. Alice me je še posebej pritegnil, predstavljam si, da je vonj po neroliju, jasminu in mandarini krasen.

Zadnja je še Green Love, kozmetika, ki sem si jo ogledovala že pred kakšnim letom, morda manj, a na žalost je ni bilo mogoče dobiti pri nas. Še dobro, da obstaja Ecco Verde, kjer je sedaj na voljo. :) Gre za švedsko znamko organske kozmetike, nekatere sestavine so tudi del pravične trgovine. Izdelki so primerni tudi za vegane.
Green Love
1. Face Mask - o tej maski sem pisala že v tem wishlistu in še vedno čakam na dan, ko jo dobim v roke. :)
2. Pretty Berries - balzam za ustnice, ki je na strani opisan kot sadno-jagodni desert, njam!
3. Boost Oil - nisem še videla izdelka, ki bi vseboval klorelo! Mešanica jojobinega olja, klorele, zelene kave in črnega ribeza zagotavlja optimalno nego pri pordelosti in izginjanju podočnjakov. Vsebuje polno antioksidantov in druge vitamine, ki skupaj tvorijo učinkovit izdelek proti staranju kože.
4. Elixir Oil - tudi to olje vsebuje klorelo, a v manjših količinah. Druga zanimiva sestavina je olje iz fig kaktusa, ki je prav tako odlično v boju proti staranju kože. Vsebuje tudi šipkovo in avokado olje, acai jagode, ognjič in še kaj. Oh, zveni krasno!
5. Ice Cream Butter, Vanilla - kremasto maslo za telo.
6. Face Scrub - piling, ki ga nanesemo kot masko. Take imam najraje. Med drugim vsebuje indijsko kosmuljo, rhassoul glino, jojobino olje, kakavovo maslo ter vitamin C.

There are so many A-mazing natural and organic brands and today's post will be dedicated to three brands I really wanna get my hands on! You can also say the post is one massive wishlist. :)
In no particular order, the first one is May Lindstrom Skin. Luxurious brand that looks gorgeous, I love the sleek black packaging! And the ingredients! Two products I think I'd love are The Honey Mud and The Problem Solver. They both had me with with their names, I mean come on, who doesn't want the problem solver? :) The Honey Mud sounds great too, lately honey has been my best friend and having a product that looks like a chocolate pudding is all I need. The Youth Dew has great mixture of vegetable and essential oils, perfect for night time and The Blue Cocoon with that blue color looks so much fun. :)

Next one is a new brand for me, I've discovered it when the lovely Liz wrote about it. Ravenscourt Apothecary was an instant love! I really like the beautiful packaging, the design is so cool! If you're obsessed with Downton Abbey and those kind of series and films I think you'll definitely love it. :) I especially adore the design on the perfumes and although I'd love to smell "like Elizabeth Bennet" I think that Alice would be the one for me. Scent of neroli, jasmin and mandarin sounds like something I'd enjoy. The same goes for the Florida Rose Rooibos Soap and Chocolate & Lavender Whipped Body Butter, delicious! I really wouldn' mind having the Calming Salve, a multi purpose balm and the Agnes Grey Lip Balm. The scent of bergamot and honey sounds great.

Last but certainly not least is another gorgeous looking brand, the swedish Green Love. I've already talked about the Face Mask in this post. It contains beutiful ingredients like rhassoul clay, barbery fig, olive oil, goosberry, acai and more. Boost Oil and Elixir Oil sound like something I really have to try. They both contain chlorella and I've never try a product with this ingredient! Elixir Oil also contains barbery fig, jojoba oil, sea buckthorn, acai and other great ingredients. I'm also eyeing the Face Scrub which can be used as a face mask, Ice Cream Body Butter and Pretty Berries Lip Balm

Have you tried any of these lovely brands? What do you think about them? 

Love,
Jana
