Product Rave: Neom Organic Treatment Candles

Ok, so it isn't a beauty product but I'm still loving it.

A couple months ago I posted this picture on our facebook page. I had decided to try these candles after not really enjoying the Air Wick ones I purchased from the supermarket. The apple cinnamon one is aiiite.

Pure Source Barbados is located on the first floor of Limegrove Lifestyle Centre and houses brands that produce natural or pre-dominantly natural products. The staff are courteous and informative...and they let me take pictures! #shade Cave Shepherd

From the site: "Neom Organics, Natural Magic candles are 100% natural and organic and unlike almost all conventional candles (which contain paraffin wax and synthetic oils), they burn cleanly with no black soot deposit and none of the fumes that can contain various carcinagenic toxins. The clean, pure vegetable wax base is scented with the best quality organic aromatherapy oils. They are also twice the size of the average candle (1kg) and with 3 wicks and over 55 hours of burn time. Burning the candles or spraying the Treatment Mists in the home is like having an aromatherapy treatment; they work holistically, having an overall recuperative effect depending on the type of essential oils they contain".

Each display card outlines the notes of its respective candle; so if you're familiar with essential oils, you'll know what to expect. Novices like me can just sniff the candles on display to get an idea of what they'd prefer. Now these candles are more expensive than the Bath and Body Works ones but that must be due to the purer ingredients being used. The minis are suggested for personal use (bedroom/bathroom) while the larger 3 wick size is recommended for greater open spaces. Of course you could burn the larger ones in your bedroom/bathroom too.

As listed above the brand also makes diffusers, room mists, body oils and lotions. So if candles aren't your thing you can still enjoy the lovely scents and get on this smell good train.

I'm a big fan of lavender so instantly I was drawn to the 'Tranquillity' (notes: English Lavender, Basil and Jasmine) products. After using both candles, 'Sensuous' (notes: Ylang Ylang, Frankincense and Patchouli) is my clear favourite. It's just amazing!

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
