Scrub Your Troubles Away

Summer does a number on skin.  Between the beach and the pool, my skin is dry, dry, dry.  I am so glad I found Nyakio. Nyakio Kamoche Grieco is the founder of the nyakio™ brand, 

a collection of beauty products inspired by her family’s secrets and created for all skin types, all ages and all ethnicities. Nyakio is a first-generation American of Kenyan descent. Inspired by her family of medicine men, farmers and educators, Nyakio created the nyakio™ brand to share her family beauty secrets. Nyakio was most influenced by her maternal grandfather, a medicine man, and by her namesake paternal grandmother, who lived on a sustainable coffee and sugarcane farm. Nyakio carefully selects the best naturally effective African ingredients that have been used by generations for their hydrating, revitalizing, smoothing and anti-aging benefits. Nyakio combines these good-for-you ingredients with modern, result-driven formulas to deliver superb multi-tasking products, formulated without parabens or sulfates. 

I am gaga for a few of her amazing products.  I love the  Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub.

Wake your skin up with this unique fusion of kenyan coffee beans, sugar, mongongo nut oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and avocado oil, that removes dull skin while smoothing, moisturizing and revealing more youthful-looking skin.Nyakio’s family secret: Nyakio’s namesake grandmother worked on her sustainable coffee farm, and after spending the day outdoors under the sun, she would boil down coffee beans with honey and apply the grounds to her skin using a sugarcane rod to exfoliate and soften her skin.

The Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub really invigorates my skin and makes it so soft, plus it smells amazing.  I use this after I have spent too much time in the pool and my skin needs a boost.  I know it will be a winter saviour as well.  Bye dry skin and hello glow!

The other product that has me gushing to friends is the Hydrating Lip Balm with Kola Nut.
Ivory Coast Kola Nut, the African Miracle Oil, Marula, South African Trichilia Oil and Honey combine in this luxurious lip treatment to immediately comfort and soften dry lips for the ultimate lip hydration.Nyakio’s family secret:

  • The use of oils in skincare has been part of Nyakio's family rituals for generations. Oils were also often used in celebrations (baptisms, weddings, rites of passage) to adorn those being celebrated.
  • This lip balm smells (and tastes) just like honey.  One application lasts me all night.  I don't think this tube has left my side since the day I got it.  My daughter is obsessed with it too, which is great because in Winter she usually looks like she had three sets of lips (she is constantly licking her lips).  

    I love that each item in the brand has a history and story, and I cannot wait to try more.

    Clemency Alice

    I love the Internet because it connect us with the most interesting and inspiring people.  Through this blog I was able to connect with the lovely Clemency, a facialist from New Zealand.  She has her own shop and online shop, Clemency Alice.

    Clemency is a leading skincare expert and facialist extraordinaire who has always had a true passion for beauty and organic skincare. This passion has been the foundation of establishing Clemency Alice where she upholds a strong belief in a highly personalised approach. Having obtained her Diploma from the National School of Aesthetics and received distinctions for her work in the spa industry, Clemency aims to bring the highest standard and quality into every facial treatment. She strives to keep abreast of the latest research in skincare, traveling overseas for further training and uses active organic products to assist her clients in achieving measurable, significant results.

    While my husband dragged me away as I was clicking to buy a ticket and visit her immediately, Clemency was packing a gorgeous package of goodies containing the best-selling MV Organic Skincare.  A little bit on MV Organic Skincare:

    A true skincare artisan, Sharon McGlinchey’s passion, love and attention to detail have set a precedent in the formulation of organic skincare. With a cult following around the world; MV is endorsed by everyone from health and beauty journalists, holistic GPs and naturopaths to internationally-renowned makeup artist Dotti, facialist to the stars Nichola Joss, British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely and actor Maggie Gyllenhaal.Sharon’s flair with essential oils and her generous use of rare and precious oils add a unique sensory experience to a daily skin care regime. Transcending ‘routine’ and moving into the realms   of ‘pure ritual’, MV allows us a moment in the day to experience something incredibly nurturing and beautiful.

    Clemency wrapped the package with the utmost care and I opened up what have now become my favorite skincare items!  I am in love with all of the items I have tried and it makes me all the more eager to visit Clemency Alice in New Zealand.

    So back to the goodies from MV Organic Skincare. The MV Gentle Cream Cleanser is formulated with Rose, Chamomile & Mandarin for all skins, particularly extra-sensitive.  It is 75% organic.  
    A beauty editors’ favourite, this unique moisturising cream cleanser removes all traces of make-up and grime, leaving the skin clean, soft and re-energized without stripping.  It is truly universal and works for all skin types.  I adore the scent and better yet it works just as well on my dry parched, skin as it does on my husbands oily t-zone.  

    The 80% organic Rose Moisturiser is so gentle and smells like the freshest cut bouquet.  A favourite with make-up artists around the world, this restorative and protective cream is an ideal make-up base. It also works perfectly blended with all MV Skin Boosters. So gentle it calms and soothes even the most sensitive and reactive skin conditions, including rosacea and eczema.  I am as picky as you can get about moisturizers and I am truly in love with this.  I don't experience the redness and irritation that so many moisturizers give me.  It does its job, but it somehow light enough to use under makeup.

    I think the biggest surprise for me has been the Pure Jojoba.   MV Pure Jojoba is an exceptional eye make-up remover and eye treatment product which nourishes, softens and protects the skin without clogging the pores. The seed of a desert shrub, MV Pure Jojoba is not an oil at all but a unique liquid wax that closely resembles the skin’s own sebum. This makes it highly compatible with the delicate skin inside the circle of the eye. This superfine wax with naturally occurring vitamin A, D & E is also perfect light moisturiser for use on the face, neck and body.  I add a few drops to my moisturizer on super-dry summer days.  I also use this to soothe my daughter's skin.  I was so surprised that an oil could be so gentle, and yet so effective.

    If you live in New Zealand (lucky dog), get yourself as fast as you can to see this wonderful woman and let her give you a facial that will change your life.  If like me, you cannot make it to see Clemency yourself, then place a nice online order of these  MV Organic Skincare beauties.

    I love when I find organic skin care that is really safe and ethical.  A lot of labels make those claims and then you look further to discover that is not the case.  Mokosh is amazing Australian brand that has the goods to back up those claims.

    Mokosh is a small business located in Fremantle, Western Australia. The business arose out of a desire to make skin products from pure, ethically sourced ingredients that are strictly free of potentially harmful additives and unsustainable ingredients found in almost all skin care products.Our full range is certified organic with NASAA, and most of our products consist of 100% certified organic ingredients. Our Face Cleansing Powder contains 5% Argiletz green clay (as a mineral, clay cannot be certified organic), and Exfoliating Body Massage contains 5% wild-harvested Australian sandalwood powder, currently unavailable as certified organic. In the soap range, the bar soaps contain approximately 5% non certified organic essential oils, whereas the essential oils in our liquid soaps are all ceritified organic. The remainder of the range is 100% certified organic. Our key ingredients are Fair Trade - shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, coconut flour, marula oil and coffee. We do not add preservatives of any description - not even those approved for use in certified organic cosmetics, because we are not satisfied with their safety. Nor do we use artificial colours or fragrances, or synthetic ingredients- all our ingredients are used in their natural form. We don't use palm oil in our soaps and other products for environmental reasons. It seems that Mokosh is one of the few skin care brands that is genuinely free of palm oil derivatives. Read more about this in our recent blog.  We use glass to package all our skin care products to reduce plastic waste, recyclable PET plastic for our liquid soaps, and 100% recycled card packaging for our soaps and lip balms. Read more in Philosophy.

    I know the above is a mouthful, but I felt it was important to highlight how great this company really is.  I am in love with the products I was able to try.  My three favorites are the Face Cleansing Powder  which exfoliates and refines skin.  It contains certified organic oatmeal, certified organic neem powder, certified organic lemon peel powder, certified organic coconut powder, certified organic rose petals, Argiletz green clay, certified organic tulsi leaf, certified organic wheatgrass powder.  It can be used as both a cleanser and a mask.  I use it as a mask 2 times a week.  I love it!

    I am also a huge fan of the Moisturizing Lip Balm with Virgin Coconut & Apricot Kernel Oils.  It literally melts into my lips and smells like summer.  I use it at night before bed and in the morning.    I am convinced that the Coconut & Sandalwood body oil is what heaven smells like.  This precious body oil may be used as an overall body moisturiser, or as a cooling, grounding massage oil. This oil combines unrefined virgin coconut oil which is deeply moisturising and rich in anti-oxidants, vitamin-rich apricot kernel oil, and highly nutritious and anti-aging camellia oil. The fragrance is from Australia's own precious organic sandalwood oil, sustainably harvested. The oil is rapidly absorbed, and daily use will soon leave the skin glowing with health. The deep noted sandalwood aroma is soothing, and you will detect its subtle calming influence for hours afterwards.
    The oil combination, in the Ayurvedic tradition, is suited to the 'Pitta' type. Generally, Pitta types are energetic, fast-paced high achievers, who would benefit from the cooling, calming effects of this oil, which will lighten body and mind, helping return both to a state of equilibrium.  I dare anyone to try it and not fall in love.  I took the bottle with me on vacation.  
    I love not only the efficacy of the products, but how pure they are.  I look forward to trying more from this amazing line.

    CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief

    I have already written about my love for CV Skinlabs here.  This incredible company is amazing for even the most sensitive skin.  All of  CV Skinlabs  products are perfect for even the most sensitive skin.  They are also all free of common skin irritants such as : synthetic fragrances & dyes, parabens, formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxiane, hydroquinone, phthalates, mineral oil/petrolatum, silicones, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, PEG/PPG, triclosan, disodium EDTA, hydroquinone, talc, MEA-DEA-TEA or chemical sunscreens.

    We all know about my propensity to burn.  Thankfully most of this summer has been spent by a pool or a beach (and I cannot complain).  I am very careful with sunscreens, but alas, my skin will burn anyways.  
    I have had great success with other  CV Skinlabs products, and then I read about the big one...the cure to my parched and hot skin....Rescue + Relief Spray.  There are so many reasons why Rescue + Relief Spray is award-winning.

    Spray on instant, cooling relief! Soothes itching, burning, irritated and inflamed skin. Guys, this is great on skin after shaving! Featured in US Weekly, People en Espanol, & Real Simple magazines.  This refreshing, milky emulsion provides deep, hydrating moisture while calming and soothing flushed, sensitive skin. A multitasking formula, it brings instant, cooling relief to itching, burning, irritated, and inflamed skin caused by sun exposure, rosacea, eczema, rashes, laser treatments, chemical peels, shaving, waxing, minor burns, and radiation treatments.

    Did I mention it smells like cucumbers?  Because it does and it is heavenly.  I store mine in the fridge for extra cooling power.  There is no stinging, only cool, sweet relief.  My daughter who has a tendency to burn on her shoulders only calls this "Rescue Rescue Spray."  It can be used for relief in so many ways that I cannot imagine a summer without it (or a winter, spring or fall).  Spray away and get some relief from the summer heat.

    This may sound odd, but I cannot use synthetically-scented candles.  They give me a headache and aggracate my astham.  I was pretty stoked to read about LITE+CYCLE.
    Launched in April 2013 by artist and package designer Kristi Head, LITE+CYCLE is focused on fostering better living through the confluence of sophisticated, modern design and ecologically sound, sustainable products. These vessel-less pillar candles integrate renewable biodegradable materials with plant-only ingredients.

    So I have fallen in love with a new skin care company.   Sodashi is an Australian skin care company that has successfully harnessed the benefits of natural ingredients to produce effective, chemical-free skin care products and spa therapies. Founded by Megan Larsen in 1999, Sodashi offers a range of products that work holistically to nurture the skin and enhance overall well being.

    Chemical Free SkincareWholeness. Purity. Radiance. That's the meaning of the Sanskrit word Sodashi, and it perfectly describes the values by which all of our chemical-free skin care products and spa therapies are created-without compromise.Sodashi products and spa treatments are unparalleled in performance and purity, employing only therapeutic-grade, ethically-sourced essential oils and plant actives to effectively heal and nurture.From seed to shelf, Sodashi remains true to its name, dramatically regenerating the skin, and imparting a deep sense of wellbeing to spirit and mind.

    I have tried (and fallen for) a few of the products.  I cannot wait to try more.  The After Sun Recovery Body Lotion was  heaven-scent and on my doorstep when I arrived home from a tropical island trip.  This soothing moisturising lotion instantly cools and deeply hydrates sensitive and inflamed skin. Minimises the effects of sunburn and reduces skin flakiness.  I actually had less peeling which is impressive as my skin is so pale I resemble a vampire.  Usually any sun causes major peeling.  I am love with the Lavender-Peppermint scent, and the cooling it provides to tight skin.  My whole family ended up partaking of this little gem.  It is something that will never leave my healing arsenal.  

    Traveling?  Then be sure to never leave without the Jet Lag Recovery Kit.  Containing a gel and mist rich in plant essences that uplift mind and body during and following periods of travel, this kit will see you arrive at your destination refreshed and revived.  The gel can be applied to pulse points and the spray can cool your face and body during travel.  The scent is relaxing and also contains antibacterial oils which makes it a must for travel.  I actually bring this on long car rides too.  

    I am looking forward to trying more from this exciting line.  Everything is so pure and and works so well.

    Child as Perfumer

    I have written about the incredible line of products created by Véronique Debroise.  I love everything Sentosphere has to offer my curious child.

    After apost-graduate degree from the ISIPCA(International Superior Institute of Perfume, Cosmeticand Food Aromas), she acquired experience in Franceand Brazil within two large groups of aromatic rawmaterial companies which convinced her of the needto foster this olfactive culture to young and old alike.
    The Loto des Odeurs, the French version of “Follow your Nose” was an enormous success as was “My Perfume Maker”, both pursuing this same idea of playing with our olfactory sense and which have now, along with numerous other games, become references in the game world.

    Children love to be the creators.  
    My Perfume Maker is a classic among educational kits. Eight natural essences or fragrances from the world’s most beautiful sources allow children seven years or older to create more than 100 different “eau de toilette.”
    my perfume maker content
    My Perfume Maker uses the highest quality fragrances available on the market, and many have found that the resulting bouquets are also very enjoyable in the bath.
    The kit includes a perfume guide that makes creating perfumes a fun and educational activity.

    We had an absolutely wonderful time creating scents.  My daughter chose to make one that was similar to cookies and one she calls "summer".  I love the high quality of this set and I also love that my daughter gets to be so involved in her creation.  How often does a little one get to create their own fragrance?!
    My Perfume Maker is an instant winner and in fact, my daughter got so creative that she used that wonderful nose of hers to recreate a perfume I have always worn from a very famous fashion house.  How cool is that?!  This set is a dream for both boys and girls and is a great way to sharpen the important sense of smell.  The combinations are endless.  

    Be sure to grab the My Perfume Maker set as well as other exiting creations from Sentosphere.

    Laurel Whole Plant Organics

    The best brands are created by those who have a keen interest in making themselves healthier.  They create lines that are inspired by their experiences and have tried and tested the items they create.  Laurel Whole Plant Organics is just such a company.

    Laurel is first and foremost a plant-loving herbalist, who naturally gravitates towards all things healing. She possesses great passion for nature, organic farming, health, earth science, and resorts & spas. It was these passions and Laurel’s struggles with her own health that brought Laurel Whole Plant Organics to life.
     She began reading labels on everything – from food to skincare to shampoo – and when doing so she quickly learned that so many common everyday items contained chemicals that she could hardly pronounce. At the same time, her mother was also experiencing different forms of endocrine disruption, as well as liver problems. A thorough review of what her mother was using for skin care and sunscreen offered further confirmation that what she was ingesting was possibly adding to her ailments, and from there a vision for clean skincare was born.

     My introduction to this magical line came in the form of the Travel Set
    This Travel Set is the best way to try out the Laurel Whole Plant Organics line. This line is most effective when used exclusively. We include everything you need to get started, or to get on a plane and go. The travel set comes in a cotton zip bag that’s perfect for travel or gifting. For oily, problem or combination skin.
    The kit includes trial sizes of: Oily/Combination Cleanser, Oily/Combination Elixir, Balance Serum, Almond Grain Exfoliant and a Citrus Spice Lip Treatment.

    This was a great way for me to get a feel for the line.  I am in love with the Balance Serum which I have been faithfyully using every single day.  This serum features a whole plant blend of LicoriceChamomileEchinaceaCalendulaBurdock,Dandelion and Passionflower that helps promote the release of toxins, stimulates immune function on a surface level and is powerfully anti-inflammatory. A fresh, herbal blend of organic and therapeutic grade essential oils of LavenderRosewoodHelichrysum, and Clary Sage is added to clear, refresh and balance skin. Some of these oils have even been linked to sun protection.  Pale me is loving that!
      I also cannot get enough of the Cleanser and lip treatment.  The Cleanser smells like grapefruit and sandalwood (aka delicious).  It cleans my pores and shrinks them (what magic is this?!).  This kit is perfect for travel and I cannot leave home without it.   
    Laurel was kind enough to send me a sample of the California Body Oil which smells like pine forest (a scent I happen to adore.  This body oil features AvocadoRosehip Seed and Tamanu for their rich texture, rich vitamin and mineral content, and healing nature. Red Raspberry Seed Oil is a stand out in this formula as well, adding to the other oils already existing sun protection properties. Organic and therapeutic grade essential oils of RoseSandalwoodVetiverScotch Pine and Cedarwood are chosen to reflect on some of the many scents of California.

    I cannot wait to get the full-sized bottles of all of these treats.  Give chemicals the boot and treat your skin with the treasure of Laurel Whole Plant Organics.

    I love books that encourage parents to let their kids create.  Tinkerlab by Rachelle Doorley is is home run for me.

    Design, Build, Concoct, and Discover—55 creative experiments for curious kids!
    Kids are natural tinkerers. They experiment, explore, test, and play—and learn a great deal in the process through problem-solving and hands-on experiments. From art making to simple robot building, magic potion testing, and nature exploration, this book is about creative experiments, in all fields, that help kids explore the world. Perfect for young children up to age six.

    These books is chock-full of wonderful ideas for crafts and activities that you can share with your child.  I ended up bookmarking so many pages that I greeted my daughter (freshly home from school) with "Do you want to make something?"  We have had a great time making things together.  We made "marbled paper" with oil and food dye.  We did "drawings from life" which my daughter set up.  We made "egg geodes" and our own prints by using Styrofoam trays from our broccoli.   Tinkerlab  makes you want to raid your home to find cool and unique items you can create and "tinker" with.

    I highly recommend Tinkerlab  and plan on gifting this treasure trove of a book to many friends.  Tinker away readers!

    Aquarellum Paints my Days Sunny

    I have an arsenal of products to keep my little one busy.  With the ever-changing spring weather, we may be outside all day or hiding from a rain storm.  I always hear the inevitable "I'm bored." My daughter has no siblings of yet, and I am her playmate in the house when friends are busy. I am totally excited to introduce readers to the Aquarellum  line by  Véronique Debroise .  

    When Véronique Debroise created Sentosphère in
    1989, her objective was to have her “nose” talents
    become useful for the general public. 
    Nevertheless, Véronique Debroise quickly noticed that the other senses : hearing, touch, smell and taste – were equally neglected in contemporary teaching.Sentosphère’s new product ranges are filled with instructive fun, encouraging us to uproot more expressive sensorial behavior, pushing for more artistic development and inciting a more open-minded outlook on the world.Aquarellum, Sandimage, Spa Lab, and numerous activity or scientific kits require using all 5 senses, tickling the artistic awareness of people of all ages.In 24 years, Véronique Debroise has created over 28 product ranges with around 12 having received awards.

    These easy to use sets feature a distinct and unique method that makes painting-by numbers obsolete. The painter has complete control. Unique embossed picture cards absorb paint in some areas and repel it in others creating intricate, detailed works of art that even the youngest children can achieve.aquabottom2The vibrant colors provided in these superb painting kits are extremely appealing to children. Parents describe Aquarellum as captivating and relaxing for both themselves and their children.These activities have received the National Parenting Seal of Approval. 
    These sets are amazing fun and come in all shapes and sizes.  We had a great time becoming artists and combining colors in our Coral Reefs set.  My daughter actually reaches for this kit and planning on framing a masterpiece or two for the playroom.  They are so great because they make painting not only fun but less frustrating for young budding artists.  If your child is like mine, she wants everything "perfect."  No matter how many times I try to explain that life does not work like that, she will often get frustrated while making something.  These  Aquarellum  kits come with everything you need to make a masterpiece.  Because certain areas repel the paint, they come out looking "perfect."

    These amazing kits are perfect for budding artists and parents alike.  I could not resist the relaxing painting project.  I cannot wait to get more of these amazing kits!

    Pacific Body Oil

    I pretty exclusively use body oils.  I have used more than you can imagine, but MVO Pacific Body Oil is one the top of my list.  Made with sesame, apricot kernel and watermelon seed oil, this is the trifecta of moisture.  It is scented with tuberose, star jasmine, rosewood, neroli and rosemary.  For some reason it makes me feel like I am at the beach.  I wish they would bottle this scent as a perfume.  It gives dry skin the boot and you emerge feeling pretty, of so pretty.  Big bonus, this oil supports that Breast Cancer Fund ($10 from every bottle is donated).  Slather this on and enjoy how glowing your skin will be.

    Bouncing Balls of Glory

    If I can find an activity to do at home that my daughter not only likes but learns something from, then I am game.  My daughter knows that I hate hearing, "I am bored." so I have a craft closet stocked with goodies for us to create.  My personal favorite was from the education toys brand, Galt.  

    Galt produces and sells quality toys which meet the needs of all stages of child development from 0-10 years. 
    Galt products are designed to be fun and to encourage learning through play. Traditionally the company is associated with art, craft and activity products.

     Galt is like a store for the creative kid in all of us.  We got to try their amazing Bouncy Balls kit!  You and your child layer crystals and water to create your own bouncy balls!  This was a huge hit in our house.  My daughter could barely contain herself when she saw the package, never mind the finished product that she helped create! My husband and I were both very impressed with the ease of the kit and how excited she got.  There is enough in the package to make two large balls or 8 small ones.

    We had a ball doing in and now I know what some lucky kids will be getting for birthday gifts.  These are just too fun to resist.

    I have read amazing things about the brand ila, but it was when I got to finally try them that I could understand what all the hype was about.  This UK-based line is a true treasure.

    Meaning ‘Earth’ in Sanskrit, ‘ila’ reflects our faith in the power of nature as the source of real wellness.We only use the finest natural plant and mineral ingredients, wild-harvested in remote, untainted regions by artisan producers who value traditional, sustainable practices.But that’s just the start of the story…From earth to skin, we go to great lengths to maintain the unique purity of each and every ingredient. The purer the processes used, the purer the end product – and the greater the natural healing energy contained within.
    To achieve this, we go beyond organic. Because it is only by embracing the utmost ethical integrity that we can harness the earth’s highest natural vibrations: vibrations with the power to reach beyond the physical to nourish emotional and spiritual well-being...

    I got to try a few of the products and there were some very big winners for me.

    The Face Oil for Glowing Radiance is a cult favorite of both men and women.  It has argan and rosehip oil.  It works for all skin types.  I quite enjoy using it at night.  The semi-strong rose scent is very calming for sleep.  It is chock-full of antioxidants and fatty acids to heal skin and keep wrinkles at bay.

    The Body Oil for Vital Energy is something I am now addicted to.  It is my favorite ila product.
     Argan, almond and rosehip seed oils are rich in anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids to stimulate circulation and penetrate deep tissue
    • The blend of essential oils cleanse and energise the body, remove toxins, restore energy to the cells and reduce cellulite
    • Wild-harvested juniper berry cleanses and purifies
    • Rose geranium and lavender stimulate the lymphatic system
    It smells amazing and when applied to damp skin, keeps me moisturized for ages.

    I cannot wait to try more from this amazing line.  I have my eye on the Hydrating Toner (because we all know I am now a toner devotee).
