The moment I  decide to  attended Sacred Beauty Salon Sessions  for the first time  I was living a life that was running 200 miles a minute.  As I was a care taker for my lovely mom  & helping to support her during Cancer treatment. A time where I was in & out the hospital 7 days a week, going in & out of  10  different  doctors offices & working over night shifts hour. In  which many days turn to  24 hour days of no sleep as I got out of work to then go back to the hospital to take my mom for treatment. Less to say it was a moment my  body was barley standing . And in this moment Sacred Beauty Salon was present to me through social media. When I  decided to  attend I had no idea what to expect but NEW in my heart that I needed to go. So I did, I made the 2 hour trip to NYC  & the first session  became my awakening of self-love that I desperately needed .

Sacred Beauty became my scared space of peace, love & strength  in a moment that I needed it the most. The women in the group & their stories became up lifting energy . As Rebecca guide the sessions with providing tools of self awareness & allowing to see deeper with in are self as women  & the beauty that in us . In less words the experiences & getting together with this group was one that transform my life . Not only me but many of the women gain amazing awaking experience . Speaking for me  I benefit by keeping my positive energy fuel up  as  I was giving it all to give my mom a reason to keep fighting her battle. She too benefit as the good vibes that I got  transmitted to her & I would teach her the makeup tips that I learn which she love .For this reason I have continue to attend the session that have taking place in NYC & Boston.

Exciting Exclusive News ….You Don’t want to Miss.

Hello  Everyone ,

This time around this post is not about a  product review or about eco-living . This  time I am sharing something that Super Special , exciting & of course a little Green Beauty !   How can I not !

Where it all Began ….

For those  following me  from the  beginning  or just starting to  follow   Boho Chic Meets Organics blog. This is  a space that I created in passion to share my farm  Eco-living lifestyle & some of the green products that I use in my daily life. To bring awareness & information for others that are  looking  into a green life -style or just wanted to know learn .

Beyond blogging , I am a scientists, Researcher & Farmer.  I  work in a lab with organic ingredients & whipping some green magic . As I worked with brands & companies to test & formulate natural beauty products. In helping brands to create safe & Eco-conscious products for all types of consumers Like You & Me. But most importantly to bring more Eco & ethically products to the market.

The thought of creating my own product  just by pass my mind like a bird flying by. Belief me when  your body is cover with ten different oils or 20 different herb powers all you think about is a ” Good Bath with Osmia Soap ” ! jejeje. ” Would You ever create your own Beauty Line “ , was a question that came up multiple times in my life , but I didn’t give much thought until my mom asked me .

When my mother was going through cancer treatment & she became highly sensitive to the beauty products she was using. Makeup was a key part in helping her  still  feel beautiful.  Specially as my MOM is a “Totally DIVA”.  She is the women that wears red Lipstick & high heals  while doing the dishes or feeding the chickens in the Farm. 

When  she was no longer able to use her favorite “Red Lipsticks” that she adore so much I started to get to work and created costume makeup product for her. Through out the time of formulating for 2 years  I got inspired  to make my own makeup products .  That lead to founded  Boho Chic Cosmetics .

In this post I will be discussing some empties from my stash that I have in my  Mom’s house . Yes that’s right I have a stash in PA farm home  & one in my Moms home in which both locations are different  :). Lets get too it !!!

Stash #1

2016 green beauty & tea 040

  1.   Organics Bath CO.  Body scrub in REFRESHMint

Love Love this body scrub ! Its my favorite scent as the mint is  very up lifting  & relaxing specially when coming for a long day of work or travel. This scrub is not over oily and is really soft to the skin. I have tried many scrubs but nothing is like the ones from Organic Bath CO. I always go back to this brand when it comes to body scrubs,they really make the best !  Really been miss this scrub since it ran out !! NEED MORE !

2.        W3ll People  Collection empties 

The W3ll People Expressionist Mascara in Black. I really had high hopes for this mascara but it just slips out of my eyelashes . It just makes me look like a raccoon with in a few hours . Love how it feels  but it just does not want to stick to my eyelashes. This was the second bottle that I use & really wanted to give it a chance but it was a no go !

The w3ll people setting power in  N2. Really enjoy this setting power as it went smooth on my face and set very well with my foundation . It also had a good way to control my T-zones areas & balance my skin. But by the end of the month of  using it the power start to gain a funny smell. I do clean my brushes every week since I am acne prone skin. Found it  wired that it gain a smell. This was not a go sign and I had no choice then to trash it out  😦 . Although it was more then half way done with the powder  I was really bummed  that the product gain a funny smell during the use . Love the product but will not be picking this up.

The w3ll people Stick Foundation N3. Finding a foundation is not easy but this stick foundation worked really well. I love how I did not have to set it with power & made my skin look very natural. It works well to cover dark spots or ant redness in the skin . Its one of my favorite stick foundations and one that works well in term to long lasting & setting into the skin natural . Plus its fast & easy to put on specially when your  in a morning rush ;).

The w3ll people Stick blush in …… I . Love my Stick cream blush by W3ll People it so easy to put on & long lasting all day . This color is a pink Peach tone which is great to get that nice rose look in those dark winter or spring days to brightening up your face . Would love to pick up more colors . Really love the natural color it gives & the great lasting power .

3.   Soap Empties 

Soap may be one of the most items that you find in my empties box . I love soap specially when they smell good & leave your skin soft like Meow Meow Tweet & Osmia Organics Soap do! These two are my favorite brands of soap ever & I always have a big stock of them to make sure I don’t run out . I actually just made a order to both to stock up again as my stash was getting super low !!! What can I say I am a True soap Lovers and these two brands are my LOVE . I love all their scents  by both brand ! And you can’t go wrong with any of them.

4.   Lotus Wei & Cap Beauty  ” Captivator” 

Everything that is Lotus Wei I just love . This brands  product are so much like scent therapy for me. This special mist spray is only found at CAP Beauty store as its a collaboration product. The Captivator smell amazing its sweet yet not a sweet scent but one that is very pleasant with a scent of rose or flowers smell. I enjoy every drop of this bottle and really need to get a new bottle to have. Its just such a nice product to help to up lift you during days work or tasking. A very beautiful mist spray !

5. The Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation N3.

This is a product that I am not going to discuss in much detail as it earns its own review that I really want to share my thoughts in. Its a favorite foundation to use during the dry & cold months as the oils of this product really  help with my skin becoming over dry. Stay tune for a full review  🙂 .

6. Pacifica Beauty color Quench Lip Tint .

Love a lot of the products that I have tried over time by Pacific Beauty but these lip tints  where not the best. Love the tint color that it gave but it was a very drying lip balm to my lips . It has a lovely scent of blood orange  that I like but wish the formula was more nourishing for the lips .

 Stash #2 2016 green beauty & tea 039

7.  Meow meow Tweet .

These two product of Meow Meow Tweet are staples in my stash. The Baking soda free deodorant in grapefruit is my all time favorite. Now they also added the Lavender scent in which I love so much too. This deodorant works but really works !! And guess what They are launching the stick version of these this month !!!  Another product is the body oil in the scent  Frankincense + Flower  is a beautiful flower earth scent that is so amazing. Love this body oil as the scent is not over powering and wears so nice through out the day. Big two favorite , although I love everything from Mew meow Tweet and can’t wait to try more of their new products that they have launched .

Small Samples . ( Right side of photo) 

1.SheTerra Body  Butter in Vanilla  was a very over scent product. It was like putting cake in you body scent . If you love SUPER SWEET scent body butter you my like this . IT was not a go for me at all & the texture of the cream was very thick and hard to rub or sink into the skin.

2.Acure Organics  Face oil Argan oil. The  sample  was great to have on the go. Specially if I felt like my hand or skin was getting dry. Was great to have as a touch up.

3.Rahua Hair Care Samples . The lovely Ru gave me these to try the Rahua hair care line in which I had yet to try. Love the scent so f the product and made my hair feel good. But I can’t say that I would like them as I did not  feel like I can make a good judgement if it works for my hair type. But they sure smell great !

4.The following samples from Primial Pit Paste, Jadlener scrub & toner , HMW toner  where a no go for my skin or my body needs .

 

This stash had a lot of mix products but also some  fall out but happy that I got to try & continue to knowledge myself in what products works for me as a whole. That the fun part right !! I hope you enjoy this  empties stash post from one  of my green beauty home cabinets 🙂 . Next time I’ll share with you some my Farm home Empties which is a different stash cabinet in its own 🙂 .

herds22 2016 080

Springs in the air & so is fresh cleaning  home

After  long winter months of having are home close up building dust, dirt and other debris its calls for some spring cleaning . For this I think Spring cleaning shouldn’t mean choking on cleaning fumes or burning your eyes and skin. But sadly,  we can be exposed to a  number of chemicals during are spring cleaning   through common cleaning products  or home materials that  contain dangerous or questionable chemicals, such as:

  • Ammonium chloride found in toilet bowl cleaners or deodorizers are permanently corrosive to the eyes.
  • Aliphatic petroleum solvent found in carpet cleaners is a neurotoxin, damaging the nervous system.
  • Crystalline sillica in many popular cleaners is a carcinogen, eye, skin and lung irritant.
  • Tripropylene glycol monomethyl ether found in floor cleaners, waxes and polishes has been linked to narcosis and kidney failure.
  • Asbestos  is a toxic found in area of home including  pipes, roof, insulation, floor tiles, siding that  can release  airborne  toxic that can be harmful and cause Mesothelioma a type of lung cancer.

Many healthy organizations has been bring high awareness about some of the toxic chemicals  that we can be expose too  in recent publish articles & research  about chemicals found in are home  including  ones mention above  that can be found in are home & commercial cleaning products that  can be a danger to area healthy both short & long term . The  mesothelioma Asbestos Awareness Center  have been bringing the attention about these chemicals to the public and science research special on ” Asbestos”. Got a chance to discuss this topic  in connections with spring cleaning  with  MAACenter communications Specialist . Mentioning that  many people are not aware of hiding toxins in their home & for this the  MAACenter  states that “bringing awareness & education to the public is key for prevention”. Specially on  hiding chemical know as Asbestos,  know to cause mesothelimoa, a rare & aggressive cancer. It is common found in piping, insulation, floor tiles, siding and roofs of homes . The asbestos is only harmful when disrupted & airborne, so it important to keep a eye on areas that it could be special when cleaning these area’s .  Thanks to MAACenter  for  brings  public  awareness  about this hiding toxic and taking the steps to guide the public about chemical safety .  Read more information about this hiding toxic  and how to prevent been exposed at Mesothelioma Asbestos Awareness Center  .

Spring cleaning should refresh  us, not make us sick!

That’s why  the following spring cleaning tips will help you accomplish your goal in a safe, non-toxic way. In this post I will share with you some safe home tips and Eco DIY cleaning recipes.

 Spring Cleaning Basic Safety Tips

 

Work From The Top Down

This spring cleaning tip is a must. The last thing you want to do is dust the table, then dust the wall or window  only to find you need to dust the table again. By working from the top down, you’ll save time, energy and resources by not repeating tasks.

Make it Fun 

Spring cleaning is about renew and enjoying the warm weather ! Create a playlist of must that you love to put you in great spring mood. To keep you up beat while cleaning away your home .  So go have a clean dance party .

Do your research 

Do your research on safety & use of any cleaning   product . Its important to use any giving product correctly for this its important to read the direction on using any product and the safety of using it in combinations other products that can create a chemical dangers to you & your home .

Natural or non-natural can still be toxic 

Treat natural cleaning products with the same caution as you would with any commercial products. Use gloves and other precaution when using any cleaners.  For safe always open a window when mixing homemade cleaners or  using other cleaning products .

Use mild  cleaning products when possible 

Most hard surface cleaning can be achieve with mild products, such as vinegar, baking soda or commercial products.

Use your Sense 

Use your sense of touch, smell and taste to guide you away from chemicals that may be leaking from a old product bottle or from a area on your home like gas , mold  and other toxic’s like Asbestos found in roof , pipes. Bottom line is to keep your sense  alerts to keep you from potential toxic exposures.

Read Labels

Reading labels to make sure you are using cleaning products for their intended purpose. Pay close attention to labels that contain the word ” CAUTION, “DANGEROUS” or ” WARNING”. These are more series in terms to let you know   the care that should be used in using this giving product.

Take Special Care with food-Prep areas

Products designed to clean food surfaces must undergo safety and effectiveness testing for their intended uses. Its important to use products on your food preparation surfaces that are nontoxic.

Some mixtures can be deadly 

NEVER mix products that contain  beach or ammonia together. The mixture releases toxic gasses. Shop cleaning products that have a neutral pH, nonirritating, nonhazardous, biodegradable and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Relax a bit about bacteria 

Don’t over use   antibacterial soaps instead consider using them to wash hands before and after handling raw food.  Using plain soap and water is enough for clean hands . Over using antibacterial can cause skin dryness or irritation but also in the long term it may increases the risk of creating tougher, resistant bacteria.

Don’t clean with the kids  or pets in the room

When you’re a parent, it’s tempting to multitask — to spray cleaner on the table while your baby is having snack. It’s much better to use household cleaners without your child  or pet in the room. Make sure to ventilate it before your kid comes back in. Let your pet outdoor or in another room while doing household cleaning .

Recycle anything 

What can we recycle? These days we can recycle almost anything. Check your local community recycle list to know which items can be recycle. Many items that are glass, plastic, paper, cardboard and electronics can be recycle and made into new items .

Donate Items  

Nothing makes clutter-cleaning easy than knowing your household items , cloths, shoes are going to a great cause. That’s why donating is such a wonderful as it helps other people while freeing you of stuff you don’t need any more . Check your local church, or shelters or local family organizations for information in taking donations of  use or new goods.

 My experiences & results using :

I been using the  Rose Toner for  the past six months everyday as part of my skin care routine . I tend to have skin issues like redness, dull skin& flakiness specially once fall/winter months roll in as my comb skin type becomes more dry . I use it as a regular toner that then I  follow with organic  jojoba oil as my skin moisturizes. Keeping my skin care simple is important key  element specially when testing out a product functions &  to see the true results .

Product  scent/function:  The  Rose Toner has a  divine scent of fresh roses . So much so that it smells like if I just pick out a fresh rose from my garden .I tend to stay away from floral scents  due to my allergies but this toner didn’t tiger my allergies at all. THANK GOODNESS ! As its a light and not over powerful smell of roses at all.

The spray gives a even spray out  one that is not harsh but instead pleasant without over spraying product into my face . It just gives the right amount , I sprayed it  twice on my face  as my preferences .

Quick 1 Month Product Results  That I Notice  in my skin:  While using  this rose toner  I did notice some changes where occurring  quickly within a month use . My skin had less dry spots in which is a Big issue that  I have even when I was using cream or balms in my  skin ,my dry spots would not go away.  With the Rose Toner it  result that my dry spots where slowly healing & became less and less common of a skin issue for me . Meaning my dry spot instead of sticking around they where slowly going away and not reappearing .

Long Term Product Results That I notice in my skin after 6 months of use : 

As mention I have issue with dry spots & dull skin , after using this product continuously for 6 months my dry spots where no longer a issue . They healed away which result to  having a much smooth skin complexion and looking less dull . My skin just became more smooth making it look healthy  and my makeup end up looking  flawless . So much so that people where asking me what I was doing different because my skin look so great.

Over all thoughts & would I re-buy this product……..

This Rose Toner maybe consider high price for a $40 , 3.5 Oz bottle  . And I agree ! But I used the product for 6  months and I still have a half bottle of product !!! That’s using it everyday .  So  that mean this product would last me at least for close to 8 months to a 1  whole year . Meaning I am saving 🙂 . Instead of having to buy a product every month or two to replace it .

The results that I got over time in using this Rose Toner have been amazing to me ! My skin became less dry, no more dry spots & ended with a smooth complexion.  A result that I have not had with any  other toner that I’ve  use and believe me I try many !!  This one truly did more just just spray water on my face it actually help  my skin heal and its a change I notice just by feeling my skin  & how my makeup looks. With that said YES I would re-buy in a heart BEAT !!!! !

 

I hope you enjoy  and find it helpful this in depth  review of Cecilia Wong Skincare  of The Rose Serum  Toner ♥

RL Linden’s Close to Me Deodorant Spray and La Balmba Rosa are also some favorites. Finally, I love Habit Cosmetics’ Belle de Jour and Diabolique.
