innersense organic beauty

I have discovered another great organic and cruelty free hair care line and I couldn't be more excited! 

Pure Harmony Hairbath Shampoo- I love how clean and soft this shampoo leaves my hair. It also has an amazing smell to it that makes me want to stay in the shower forever!!

Pure Inspiration Daily Conditioner- Another amazing smelling product as well as highly effective. It gets all of my tangles out and leave my hair so soft and smelling lovely!

Harmonic Healing Oil- Thhhhiiiisssss. You guys know I love my hair treatment oils and this has joined my loving pack. I love letting this product soak into my scalp before I wash my hair. I leave it in for at least an hour before washing my hair and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny. 

I Create Hold- I like to use a little bit of the product all over my hair when I plan on wearing a high pony and I want my hair to keep that hold and volume.

I Create Finish- This is a great natural spray to hold curls.

Hot or Not (mostly "nots")

Sorry I haven't posted in a week! We've been crazy busy over here getting ready for the Canadian Nantionals but now that the first race is done and everything is settled in, I'm ready to keep the posts coming! 
These are not only "Hot or Not" products but their also empties. I have completely finished all of these products so I'm able to give a full review on each. These are mostly "nots" which I don't try to shy away from on my blog. I want you guys to know the honest truth before going out and wasting your money on ridiculous products. Enjoy <3

Pro-Nu 24k Gold Mask. How many of you have seen or heard of these 24k Gold Face Masks going around?! When I saw these, they looked and sounded so fun and I knew I had to try them. These masks claim to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage, all while hydrating your skin. Nope. Lies. I've tried this specific "Gold Mask" 5 times now and every single time it has disappointed me. It literally has no benefit for my skin whatsoever and it's just messy while leaving my skin feeling gross and sticky with (not cute) gold flex all over it. I truly have no idea why these masks have good reviews online. Waste of money. I purchased mine on Amazon for $21.95 in a 5 pack. NOT.

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. Love. This. Mask. If you've been looking for something to help with any dark spots you may have, look not further. This product is my go-to for any discoloration. Not only does it help with pigmentation issues but it also leaves my skin so soft and hydrated! Side note: don't let the packaging color throw you off, it's the same formula they just changed their packaging. HOT. 

Dior Dream Skin. Nope. Just because a product is made by a high-end brand does not mean it's good quality. This product did absolutely nothing for my skin. I has a skin-colored tint to it which basically just fools you into thinking it's leaving your skin looking better immediately while improving it within, when it's actually just masking it your skin issues. Don't let these type of products fool you. Oh, and it's $95...NOT.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask. I just LOVE this mask in the summer. It is perfect for after-sun use as it is so refreshing feeling. It has that aloe gel texture which feels amazing and leaves my skin feeling super hydrated. A little goes a long way which justifies the price on this product. HOT. 

Strivectin-TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream. Um, no. This was another one that did nothing that it claims it should. It's basically just a think moisturizing cream. Sure it gives your neck hydration but tightening? I think not. Again, for $95?! Mind blown. NOT.

The Innate Life Review & Giveaway (closed)

(Click on images to enlarge)

 The Innate Life is a company that stands strong behind their natural hair products. So many beauty products are loaded with all types of nasty chemicals and toxins but not these products, my friends! They have sent me a Hair Elixir and Scalp Treatment to try out, review and host a giveaway for you guys to get the chance to try it out yourselves as well. 

(Above, I have taking a picture of the ingredients and directions of these two products.)  

I'll start by saying, these are some amazing prices on natural beauty products. Especially ones that are such great quality. I'm very impressed! 
The Rose Hair Elixir has multiple noted uses but my personal favorite way to use it is the scalp treatment. As you may know, I'm obsessed with using natural oils on my scalp before every hair wash. I love this treatment! First of all, smells SO heavenly. It also feels amazing and leaves my hair feeling so healthy. The other uses include using this oil as a heat protectant and as a de-frizzer/hair shine. Great product!
Hair Growth + Dandruff + Repair Scalp Treatment smells like a full blown spa treatment in a jar. I'm obsessed. This product is also another win for me as I just love natural hair treatments. It smells amazing, feels amazing, and my scalp and hair both feel and look great after the treatment. Note, it does have a cooling sensation from the peppermint. When I use it as an overnight treatment I can still feel the cooling sensation the following morning. The texture is so fun as it's like a creamy substance in the jar but when it hits your scalp it just melts in like butter! 

Check out their website here:

New Morning Drink

Every morning, for the last month, I've been mixing these 3 together and drink them in a 4 oz glass of water instead of drinking coffee or tea. About 6 months ago, I quit drinking coffee and switched to tea, and about 1 month about I quit drinking tea (and all other caffeinated beverages) and switched to this new concoction. I can honestly say I feel better all around. I have plenty of natural energy and don't feel as I'm missing out at all since quitting my daily caffeine drinks. The new energy I have is so much better as there is no crash nor do I ever get those jitters from the coffee or tea. I still have tea every now and then but I no longer drink it daily. There are SO many benefits to this drink, I even shocked myself during the research! 

Wheatgrass- Wheatgrass helps with food cravings, treats skin diseases, detoxes cells, stimulates circulation, improves immunity and digestion, treats arthritis, reduces fatigue, natural body deodorant, treats skin wounds, prevents tooth decay, cleanses the liver, treats sunburn, clears sinus congestion, rids acne, prevents cancer, fights the common cold, improves mood, helps with hangovers, fights depression, combats inflation, eases menstrual pain, neutralizes infection, repairs damaged DNA, slows aging, fights radiation, refines and renews body tissue, stabilizes blood sugar, and more!

Chlorophyll- Now, there is already Chlorophyll in Wheatgrass but I like to add an extra splash in there for those extra benefits. Chlorophyll strengthens blood making organs, helps control hunger and cravings, encourages healing, promotes cleansing, protects DNA against fried food, is a super potent antioxidant, has promising potential for cancer therapy, controls body odor, effective against Candida Albicans, relieves systematic redness and swelling, and last but not least promotes healthy iron levels. Unreal, right?! Beware, this stuff loves to stain everything it comes in contact with. 

Multi Green Mix- This product is simply amazing. You can research it yourself and check out all of the awesome reviews. This specific "Green Vibrance" brand supports the 4 Foundations of Health including nutrition, digestion, circulation and immunity with additional benefits to pH, energy, detoxification and stress relief. It also provides immune support, skeletal support, fiber, liver support, enzymes and tonics and a ton of probiotics. 

You can find these products on Vitacost & Amazon.
