Sonic Chic Deluxe Toothbrush

slide1

 If you’re going on holiday, to a festival, or just like to stay out and party, I have found the perfect product for you – The Sonic Chic Urban Toothbrush.

When I discovered these toothbrushes, I was so happy I couldn’t believe it. I brush my teeth 3-4 times a day which I find a bit of a chore, especially when I am not home. A portable electric toothbrush which comes in a super cool design (6 designs in Blue Maze, Ziggy, Starlight, Twister, Lovehearts, Tribal Quest) can easily fit into any handbag. It’s light, comes with its own battery, and a USB charger fuelling 32,000 brush strokes per minute. It has a vented cap so it can stay hygienic, and the blue strip across the bristles fades as the head needs replacing. It really is an essential for holidays, festivals, and those nights when you think you wont be home until the morning… yes your walk of shame can be less humiliating.

I have been using this toothbrush for a week now and its amazing. Its light, the sound is discreet and soft so when you are in public, no one will know what you are up to, unless they listen really hard. It’s definitely not as powerful as my home Oral B, but for a portable quick clean, its perfect and definitely more effective than a manual one.

Magic and the Moonlight – Suti Skincare

‘Everything is energy’ – Einstein

I do yoga, try to meditate, own a lot of crystals, love the moon, and believe in the power of the universe. It’s kind of a cliche… but these days, you don’t have to be an avocado eating, unicorn loving bohemian to be spiritual. If you search any of these hashtags on Instgram, there does seem to be a mystical movement going on alongside the clean living/eating trend. Being healthy and in touch with your true self, and your environment has a lot to do with nature. One way people can connect is through through the Earth’s natural resources – plants, flowers, and crystals. The crystals hold properties that vibrate and resonate to frequencies that can help with healing and aligning the chakras. They have been used for centuries, and today, even celebrities such as Victoria Bekham, and Miranda Kerr carry them. Every crystal has a vibration that works with your own chemistry to help restore your body’s highest potential, so if you apply this healing power to skincare, there’s magic there that would probably turn the most sceptical people into believers.

I discovered Suti Skincare in Whole Foods a few months ago through organic skincare specialist Donna Ryan. Suti Skincare is a British Organic Skincare brand based on Energy Healing. Each ingredient is carefully selected for its unique, nourishing, and energetic properties to help improve,refine the appearance and feel of your skin. The range contains the finest organic essential oils, while working the energy of Reiki, crystals, the moon cycle and flower essences. They have dedicated Clear Quartz Crystals that work specifically with each product. Physically Clear Quartz Crystal has a high silica content, which is fundamental to skin, energetically it works with the whole body, reputed to purify, amplify and send healing to where it is needed.

Donna reccomended I try two of their products, Nourish Face Oil for Night (£39) and the Facial Cleansing Balm (£33).

The Organic Face Oil contains Avacado Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Jasmine and Patchouli to heal, replenish and rehydrate the skin. Also, Macadamia and Geranium balance the production of sebum for a healthy glow, Argan oil calms, and Apricot Kernel promotes elasticity. The Energetic Intuition of this oil is ‘Stillness’ as it creates balance for rest, release, and renew, promoting skin to transform as you sleep. The flower associated to this oil is Jasmine, the Goddess of the night sky which like your skin, illuminates the darkness. I found this product to be really intense and thick compared to other night oils I have used from other brands. It does blend in easily, and leaves the skin feeling nourished and soft. It takes a while to get used to because the smell is quite strong, but the benefit is that you don’t need much, just a couple of drops will cover your entire face and neck. I started using this at the same time as another oil and I could feel and see the difference in the Suti one in quite a dramatic way – the Suti face oil leaves skin looking and feeling amazing. The oil makes skin glowy, soft, and youthful. I also noticed how good it was compared to other leading organic brands once it ran out, my skin hasn’t looked the same since.

The Facial Cleansing Balm’s Energetic Intention is ‘Purification’ for release and renewal. This stuff is insane! The smell is so intoxicatingly good, I got a little obsessed by it. Every time I used it I would have to inhale it before I applied it like some sort of sick junkie! It contains Lime, Geranium, Avacado, Sunflower and Apricot Kernal Oil. The texture, as you can see below is thick and lumpy, but once applied to the skin, it rapidly melts and glides on, easily removing all traces of makeup – even black eye makeup. If I had to choose between these two products, I would definitely go with the cleansing balm as its unlike anything I have used before. It feels home made, yet the results are really powerful. The Avacado, Apricot Kernal, Sunflower, and Shea Butter intensively nourish, protect and replenish as well as removing dead skin cells. The Olive Oil smooths and calms inflammation, as well as tightening pores.

I would highly reccomend Suti Skincare as its mostly organic, and has a romantic/mystical ethos behind it. If you don’t believe in any of the magic, and hippy stuff, I still think you should try it out anyway, as the products I used do what they say on the tin – they smell great, feel good and make you look healthy and glow. I feel like I haven’t even covered half of what they do as I needed to keep my word count down. Check them out and let me know what you think.

Dr Jackson Detox Tea

It’s the new year and this is my first post of 2016! Happy New Year everyone…I hope this year will be wonderful and magicical for you all!
My 2016 so far has been super fun…mostly because I have been so bad, and doing all of the naughty things I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing at the end of last year, such as late nights, partying, drinking, and eating bread and sugar.  I was really sick before Christmas and really bored which made me realise I needed to get some fun out of (or in) my system, even if it was in January when the rest of the population hit the gym and the nutribullet.  The last week has been amazing, and I have been extremely happy.
Unfortunately, I seriously cannot maintain this lifestyle, and as it’s nearly mid Jan (already) it’s time to get back to reality and detox. I’ve finished off my last Pierre Herme Macaroon, and replacing it with a rice cake! Back to normal life of salad, fruit, and vegtables…Snore… This will not be easy, but the benefits will do wonders for my skin.

 

One easy way of detoxing and cleansing the body is by drinking tea.  Its not tiring, and it tasted pretty good.  The Detox Tea by Dr Jackson is one of LibertyLondon’s fastest selling products.  Its amazing. It contains ingredients with ntural ingredients and medicinal properties, such as digestion boosting Fennel, Aniseed, Elderflower, and Senna Fruits, to de bloat, and detox. Also, the Spanish liquorice, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, gives the tea a sweet taste due to its natural glycyrrhizin content.
I have really got into tea over Christmas, so I am really excited about trying this cult product out. The tea is to be enjoyed every morning and once in the evening over a 4-5 day period, however, if you suffer from a weak stomach, I would take it only in the evening.  Use like any other tea, bags, or loose, and let it brew for 3-5 minutes.
Enjoy, and good luck! Happy detox January 🙂
