September Favourites

I haven’t done a monthly post like this yet, but I thought it’d be fun to start.  I’ve broken it down into categories and picked my favourite from each one.

Skin Care

I was completely blown away by Pai Organic’s Camellia and Rose creamy cleanser (review).  I didn’t know that a cleanser could completely clean my skin, remove all of my make up and not leave my skin feeling tight and dry.  It took only a week for my skin to adjust to this cleanser and the adjustment period only left me with one small zit.  Since that time things have been back to my normal, clear skin.  Will I repurchase? I already have.


This month I kept reaching for my Hugo Naturals All Over Lotion (review) in Grapefruit and Shea Butter & Oatmeal.  The company has great standards, the lotion kept my skin moisturized and they smell so good!  These two are my favourite scents, but with such a wide range of scents to choose from there’s a scent to suit everyone.  And with an EWG rating of 1? Can’t get much better than that. Will I repurchase? Absolutely.

Hair Care

After a conversation with someone in the comments section on my blog I was intrigued enough to try the sample of the Extra Honey and Beer shampoo bar (review) by Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve and I am very happy that I did.  It has turned my hair around and has given me the silky soft hair I was used to while using conventional hair care products laden with sulphates and silicones.  The shine this bar has given my hair is incredible and it rinses so cleanly that I have been able to go for several days without shampooing without the slightest hint of greasy hair.  The scent is so subtle it’s virtually non-existent so that leaves tons of room for my conditioner and hair oils to take over.  Will I repurchase?  I already have repurchased it in the full size.


Cheeky Cosmetics is a Canadian mineral makeup company that caught my eye with their vibrant on-trend eyeshadows that are highly pigmented and blend so well together.  This great pigmentation and long lasting staying power with minimal fall-out makes these shadows top the list of my favourite makeup for September.  This past month I was reaching for Frost, Hottie, Sugar Plum and Sultry to blend together a nice, feminine, summer look.  For a full review and swatches click here.  Will I repurchase?  Yes, and I already have purchased a few of my samples in the full size.  With so many shades to choose from it’s so much fun to mix and match and so hard to choose which ones I think I’d use the most!


Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Facial Cleanser

After trying Annmarie Gianni’s aloe-herb cleanser (review) I wanted to try and find something similar without the high international shipping costs.  I liked the idea of a creamy cleanser that still removed oil, dirt and makeup, but without leaving my skin with that tight, dry feeling.  After reading a bunch of reviews and ingredients lists my internet travels brought me to Pai Organics.

Their trial/sample size of the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser was 50mLs!  Great for being able to truly test out it’s effects on my skin!  And with a nominal shipping fee, I couldn’t turn it down.  Look what it arrived with:
