Green Beauty Empties !

Hello Everyone ,

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 ¬†ūüė¶ . 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 ¬†ūüôā .

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 ūüôā . Next time I’ll share with you some my Farm home Empties which is a different stash cabinet in its own ūüôā .

‚ô•

NOW LETS GET too SOME CHICK TALK !!!!

Now lets get more personally with the CHICK behind this amazing Online  store created by Margot & Joe . A  green shop created by a couple to bring a healthy lifestyle to their family  and of course to US. I got the honor chance to chick chat with Margot about all things green !

And for this special chat I bring you a FUN Interview with Margot ¬† ! Oh… get ready to laugh tooo !

 

Question : As a go-mom that you are, what products are found in your hand bag right now as we speak?

Margot : As we speak – here we go: ¬†Au Naturale Lip Gloss: ¬†Nothing like a sweep of shiny, natural gloss to brighten your lips and your day. ¬†MUN No. 1 Aknari Youth Brightening Serum. ¬†I apply this as needed throughout the day to moisturize and brighten my skin and the aroma makes me feel so good! ¬†Splurge Skincare’s Melted Buttah – for those emergency dry spots and lip¬†treatment¬†in cold weather – ¬†DN-UNIK’s Eye Contour Serum – for when my tired eyes need a pick-me-up and to bash dark circles! ¬†This is just my bag. ¬†My bathroom is another story!

 Question: If you could be a cartoon character for a day who would you be & why?

Margot:  Definitely Merida from the movie Brave!   I admire her spunky spirit, her fearless nature and her ability to be comfortable with who she is.

Question : Kids & family members LOVE to take over are product cabinet, what is one product you hide away from them? And why?

Margot : Oh my gosh. ¬†Funny you should ask! I found my Kari Gran Lip Whip in my 11 year old son’s backpack and my hubby takes the Josh Rosebrook Cacao Mask and my Solavedi Organics ZAP! Blemish Spot Treatment – so I have to keep those concealed! ¬†We also fight over the Griffin Remedy and Ahnesti shampoo – my kids ALWAYS use way too much. ¬†And please don’t dare mess with my Graham Gardens Avocado Oatmeal soap!

¬†Question: The one ‚Äúquote‚ÄĚ that you read & ¬†keeps you going :

Margot: This quote from Herbert Needleman is so inspiring to me and literally fuels me to help make a difference. ¬†‚ÄúSince 1950, at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment. Only a¬†fraction of these have been tested for human toxicity. We are, by default, conducting a massive clinical toxicology trial, and¬†our children and their children are the experimental animals.‚ÄĚ

 Question: Green beauty had a big year in 2014, what 2014 products where you’re favorite & what new brand discoveries you found?

Margot: I honestly have favorites from all of our lines! ¬†In terms of brand new discoveries, I ¬†am very pleased that DN-UNIK found The Choosy Chick. ¬†I am very impressed with this age-defying line from France and can’t wait to see what they will come up with next!

 Question: What flower or plant best describe you as a person & that you feel a nature connection with?

Margot:¬† I absolutely adore Hydrangeas. ¬†Their big, bold flowers just always make me feel so good. ¬† I love all the shades: blue, the pink, the lacey ones. ¬†All of them! ¬† I am not a happy camper when mine won’t bloom! I love them outside, ¬†inside in a vase and even dried.

 Question: The green community love to meet up and get everyone together, if you could have the chance to have Tea Time with some of them (brand owner, store owner, etc ) who would be sitting in the table ?

Margot: Oh my gosh what a great question. ¬†Their are so many people that I would love to meet, including you, Yeiza ¬†with your amazing childhood story. ¬† I would also love to meet some of the first people that helped get me off the ground – so here we go: ¬†Katie – ¬†The Green Product Junkie, Cori at Well Beauty Blog, Little Ru at Short Small and Sweet (I wonder if I am actually taller than she is – I’m 4’11), Danielle ¬†– The Glamorganic Goddess, ¬†Kasey at Plein Vanity. ¬†Then at each end of the table I’d pick a king and queen. ¬†HollyBeth from HollyBeth Organics and Josh Rosebrook!

 Question: What can your customers expect form Choosy Chick in 2015?  We look forward to an exciting 2015!

Margot: We will be adding some new products from existing lines and taking on a few more. ¬†We also will be hosting more interviews with “people in the know” via our blog and¬†would like to offer our repeat customers a rewards program.

Thank you Margot for the chick chat and the many good laughs !!! in doing this fun interview !! Looking forward to that TEA TIME in A NEAR FUTURE. ‚ô•

  ♥Goddess Garden Organics Sunny Body Natural Sunscreen (sunscreen)

I am always looking for a sunscreen as they all tend to break be out pretty bad and was help to try this one out. And when I did I felt in love as it did not break me out at all. It goes on well and sink much faster into skin then most sunscreens . I love how it does not give you that mask feel or like your wearing a extra layer on your skin.

Love how this is a travel size and one can just put it in a bag to take for those dry hand moments.Although I am not a fun of its scents It smells SUPER sweet. I actually pass this alone to my mom who likes sweet scents. Also the texture is so solid . You really have to rub it into the skin . It also doesn’t skin in well into the skin it kind of just sits on top of your skin. Not so great :(.
