Becoming eco-friendly: Home Edition

2 Sep

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that my family just recently purchased a new set of washing and drying machines!

So excited about them as they are considered a little more eco-friendly then the kind that my family was using before.

Bonus was that since I live in Canada there was a rebate of $175 which saves a little bit but in about 2 years we will see a big difference in the cost of water.

Those who are curious about the rebate please go to the following website:

Review: Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder

4 Mar

Wow… long title. Anyways… photo!

Review: Physicians Formula has developed a line of organic makeup for those who are scared or allergic to all the chemicals put in any other makeup product. My first loose powder that I purchased… I have to say when I first used it I wasn’t a happy person. First off the smell that greets you when you use this all-over your face is… how to describe it earthy? It was a really bark-like smell that really stood out. It comes in a variety of shades which is great for those who uses powder foundation but I also think that they should develop a translucent version or have a more broad-band color range (doesn’t give us Asians much to work with). The texture is quite finely milled and really doesn’t feel like you are putting powder on your face which is a nice bonus. Other than the smell of the product which you’ll get used to as it takes a while to get through one of these suckers it is a pretty good setting powder.  

Cost: $19.99CDN

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for people who want to be eco-friendly or don’t particularly care about product smells.

Becoming eco-friendly

23 Feb

A while back… about July 2009 I was on an eco-friendly spree… and during that time I was beginning to use makeup so most of my products were eco-friendly or claimed to be. The things that I got from that time was these things:

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder… the state of it now:

 Sorry for the bad lighting but I hope that you can tell that I only have about 5-10 uses left on it. Almost at the way… bottom. And this product:

 Ecotools Brush set + the powder brush. They have withstood the test of time… but the brush roll has not… gotta go wash it. ^_^They’re will be a review on them soon. I think I’ve used them long enough to know what they feel and how well they perform.

This is a new item that I want to add to my eco-friendly self…

 This Bamboo wear compact is from Physicians Formula and I am waiting for it to hit stores so that I can pick it up. There is a rebate on this in which you can get the compact for free if you send in the rebate form. Basically the concept of this is for people to buy the powder or bronzer seperately and then put it in the compact. I have an N.Y.C. translucent powder in which the packaging is horrible so I was thinking to transfer it over to this compact once I get it. Anyone know when these compacts will make its way into Canadian drugstores?? I really want to get one. It is made of sustainable bamboo and the design looks really cute and stuff. The thing is that I know that I probably won’t like the mini brush that comes with the compact. Kudos to magnets for keeping things down and in place. But anyways, love finding new eco-friendly products… hooray!
