Mother’s Day Gifts 2016 Roundup

Posted by: Jordan

It’s coming!!!  Every mom’s favorite day where she gets spoiled all day long and hopefully taken out to a great brunch and showered with love (and possibly a nice gift!).  So what are you getting the special mom in your life (please feel free to forward these hints to any husbands/sons who desperately need some ideas!)

 

Violets Are Blue

Violets are Blue beloved line

I was recently introduced to this woman-owned, local NY company and have fallen head over heels for their products as well as their  beliefs and mission.  You can read more about Cynthia, the delightfully sweet owner, and how she started her company here.  An incredibly thoughtful gift for a mom going through cancer treatment would be a gift set from their Beloved line, which is unscented and specifically formulated to be safe for dry, parched treatment-ravaged skin which needs some extra love without the possibly intolerable extra scents.  I have been using the White Tea and Carrot Seed creamy cleanser, the Carrot Seed and Rosehip serum, and lip balm from the signature line and love how gentle and effective they are.  My skin feels soft, clean, and calmed after using all three products, plus the scent is fresh and light.

Tata Harper

Tata Harper mother_s_day_set_box We are so in love with this brand, it’s ridiculous!  Our yet-to-be-checked-off-the-bucket-list dream is to visit Tata’s organic farm in Vermont to see this amazing company up close and personal.  This Mother’s Day Spa Kit is a comprehensive, indulgent introduction to the brand that every mom is sure to love.  From now through 4/30 if you spend $150 or more, be sure to use the code MASKLOVE for 3 deluxe samples of their Resurfacing Mask, Moisturizing Mask, and Purifying Mask (Don’t you love getting freebies for yourself when purchasing gifts!  Though I suppose you could be super generous and pass along the free gift to mom…)

Bembli Body

Bembli Body For the budget-conscious gift that seems like you spent a lot more than you did, check out the handmade natural products from Bembli Body.  I have the body scrub, face scrub, and body cream (which my 4.5 year old daughter confiscated from me and now only wants to use that after her baths!).  The scrubs are made with brown sugar, organic green tea, and raw organic honey.  My skin feels insanely soft after using both the face and body scrubs, plus they come in a wide array of natural scents from therapeutic-grade essential oils.  Shipping is free over $25 plus as a gift for PJR readers get 15% off your order using code RJ15.

 

Honest Company Essentials Bundle

Honest Essentials bundle Get mom a gift certificate to an Essentials Gift Bundle.  You can choose a single delivery for about $40 or a 3 month/6 month/full year subscription.  She has the choice of a huge array of body, face, and home supplies to add to her bundle and can customize it how she’d like.  I’m looking forward to trying the newly reformulated sunscreen in my next bundle.

Jane Iredale Greatshape Eyebrow Kit + Brow shaping by Carrie Lindsey

Jane Iredale Greatshape eyebrow kit

For a unique gift idea, how about a gift certificate to have mom’s eyebrows shaped, paired with this handy new eyebrow kit from our well-loved Jane Iredale? I have the kit in Blonde and it’s the perfect shade to fill in my sparse light-colored brows, plus I love having the wax, the dual-sided brush, and brow powder all in one handy little kit.   If you’re local to NYC I recommend a gift certificate for the full shaping and tinting treatment at Carrie’s Lindsey’s new salon in Fort Greene.  I’ve trusted only Carrie with my brows for a few years now, and even though she’s moved from the storefront in my neighborhood to her own salon just a short train ride away, I’m following her.  She’s the BEST.  In Carrie we trust.

Kahina Giving Beauty

Kahina giving beauty Emily wanted to add in that anything from Kahina Giving Beauty would be a great gift for any mom who wants to support other women around the globe.  In this case, Berber woman who inhabit the argan forest in Southwest Morocco. Says Emily, ” I met the founder/CEO at the Elev8 event [earlier this week in NYC] and was so moved by their philanthropic mission and the brand’s incredible ethics, sustainability, and efficacy! Definitely a brand we should all be aware of (and using!).”

Neal’s Yard Remedies

NYR lavender gift set

A brand I was introduced to when I stopped in their London store 6 years ago when I was first venturing into the the world of natural beauty, Neal’s Yard Remedies is offering 20% this month on their Lavender shower gel and lotion set.

 

 

 

 

Cocoon Apothecary

Cocoon Apothecary Kahuna gift set

How cute is the packaging on this organic bubble bath and lotion gift set from Cocoon Apothecary?  The scent, which I’ve yet to try, but sounds divine, is citrus and floral with a tropical twist.

True Moringa

True Moringa Mother's Day Gift Set An incredible Mother’s Day gift set from True Moringa includes their lemongrass body oil, a bar of Theo coconut almond dark chocolate (my favorite–so delicious!), and a soy candle scented with essential oils rather than artificial fragrance oils.  Each hand poured candle was made by a woman who has resettled from a refugee camp and is working to build a better life in the states.

 

 

 

Kosmatology

kosmatology

I haven’t tried anything from this mom-founded organic skincare company yet, but the Mother’s Day gift sets are very cute and at a great price point!  Save an extra 15% off sitewide using code MOM15.  I think I’d have to choose the Grapfruit Gift Set!  Sounds lovely.

 

 

 

 

We want to wish a happy mother’s day to our own mothers and mothers-in-law this year, as well as all of our mom readers.  May everyone’s day be filled with some extra love, attention, and gratitude for all that moms do!

Strange Invisible Perfumes Body Wash & Lotion (+Giveaway!)

Posted by: Jordan

It’s a new year and we’re ready to introduce our readers to some amazing new companies we’ve been loving this Fall/Winter!  First up is the incredible natural perfumer, Strange Invisible Perfumes, who have graciously offered a giveaway to one lucky reader!  Read on for details on how to be entered into this heavenly giveaway.

strange-invisible-perfumes-body-wash-lotion-travel-size-z

Emily and I got to smell a lot of Strange Invisible Perfumes’ products at the Indie Beauty Expo this past Fall, and we’ve been loving the samples we received ever since.  I’ve tried out all the scents of the body wash & lotions and each one is so sophisticated and beautiful.  It’s hard to choose a favorite–they all smell gorgeous–but if forced to choose, I’d have to say the Sage + Rose scent is a standout for me.  But I think my absolute favorite is the Lavender + Vetiver scent.  The scent lasts at least half the day, and every time I catch a subtle whiff of it, I continue to love it.  Ever since switching over to completely natural products with no synthetic fragrances in 2010, I’m extra sensitive to scents.  Anything too strong, cloying, or artificial gives me an instant headache.  All of SI Perfumes’ bath and body washes use only 100% natural botanical scents–nothing artificial here!  So the scents are naturally fresh and pretty.  I’ve found that the Lavender + Vetiver scent seems to last the longest, which I appreciate–I should mention that these high quality products are not inexpensive.  I can justify the price of the body wash and lotion since they basically double as a perfume for me.

SI Perfumes recently came out with their Zodiac line of perfumes.  For a complete review of these, read the beautifully written write-up from Scent Hive.  They’ve created a perfume specifically for your zodiac sign.  So fun to read what your sign smells like!

Aries: The Innovator. Element: Fire. The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is able to make incredible things happen quickly. Hydro-distilled essences of cinnamon, rose, and angelica fuel a vibrant imagination. Frankincense, benzoin, lavender, and sandalwood cool fiery impulses, encouraging the composure needed to realize visionary plans.

Taurus: The Sensual Realist. Element: Earth. Ruled by Venus, Taurus is a compassionate sign resistant to the influence of others. Lush earthy notes of geranium, maté, oakmoss, vetiver, and frankincense encourage flexibility and optimism without compromising shrewdness. Neroli, rose, and grapefruit court the senses and lighten the mood, allowing Taurus to shine even more brightly.

Gemini: The Mastermind. Element: Air. Gemini, symbolized by the twins, is an agile thinker with the dazzling ability to see all angles of an issue. This sign is associated with duality, a concept often confused with duplicity—hence the misguided characterization. Charming notes of violet, gardenia, and angelica echo Gemini’s alluring presence and sparkle against a darker backdrop of amber and leather.

Cancer: The Levelheaded Bohemian. Element: Water. Cancer is the only sign of the zodiac ruled by the moon. While being adventurous and free spirited, those born under Cancer are known for their cleverness, generosity, and devotion to family. Mandarin, patchouli, and lily of the valley encourage Cancer’s mischievous sense of humor, while sumptuous notes of Tahitian vanilla, amber, and leather make this sign feel right at home.

Leo: The Ringleader. Element: Fire. Leo is the only constellation ruled by the sun. Hydro-distilled essences of neroli, bergamot, lemon, and cardamom reinforce Leo’s charisma and inviting style of leadership while smoothing out domineering tendencies. Ambrette seed and jasmine sambac tame Leo’s fire, making gratification come more easily.

Virgo: The Exacting Romantic. Element: Earth. Virgo is the guardian of quality, and this sign’s pursuit of excellence is often mistaken for arbitrary perfectionism. Baked earth and palo santo reflect deep introspection and a dedication to nuance. Sparkling notes of neroli, temple mandarin, and rose speak to Virgo’s need for beauty and precision, sweetly quieting the critic.

Libra: The Connoisseur. Element: Air. Libra, ruled by Venus, is the most approachable of all air signs, balancing elegance, wit, and mischief with legendary skill. Centering essences of rose, grapefruit, and iris fulfill Libra’s unyielding need for beauty, while golden champa, myrtle, and basil calm Libra’s tendency to worry.

Scorpio: The Enigma. Element: Water. Scorpio, the dark horse, the infamous rock star of the zodiac, is nothing if not a mystery. Vetiver and palo santo both respect and soften Scorpio’s iron will, while frankincense and cinnamon reflect Scorpio’s deep spiritual wisdom and vast knowledge. Leather and white Cognac encourage Scorpio’s brooding intellect to lighten up and live joyously in the moment.

Sagittarius: The Rolling Stone. Element: Fire. The iconic nomad sign, Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius lives for adventure and tends to be a social butterfly. Neroli and lime reflect Sagittarius’s innate optimism, mutability, and fiery ambition. Grounding essences of cypress, bay leaf, and honeycomb encourage this nomadic sign to appreciate present surroundings.

Capricorn: The Force to Be Reckoned With. Element: Earth. Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is famous for a nearly heroic sense of commitment, patience, and drive. Iris, frankincense, and Tahitian vanilla speak to Capricorn’s earthy, sensual side and strong need for stability. Neroli, jasmine, and white Cognac invite Capricorn to let go of routine and enjoy the rewards of spontaneity.

Aquarius: The Rebel with a Cause. Element: Air. Aquarius, the third and final air sign, is one of the most charismatic signs of the zodiac. Neroli and rosemary fuel Aquarius’s independence, intellect, and humanitarianism, urging Aquarians to put their global ideals into action. Lavender, white sage, and frankincense soothe anxiety, grounding Aquarius when airy detachment sets in.

Pisces: The Dreamer. Element: Water. Empathic and sensitive, Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac, is seen as the wisest and most reflective of all. Grounding essences of frankincense, cedarwood, and black pepper guide Pisces through occasionally stormy seas of emotion. Night-blooming jasmine, kewda, and lime keep the waters of creativity abundantly flowing.

Now for the really fun part: a giveaway!!!  One super lucky winner will win a lotion of their choice (value $75) PLUS a bottle of the Zodiac Perfume in your sign (value $125)!!  I wish I could win this giveaway myself!  To enter:

  1. Leave a comment with your zodiac sign and the lotion scent you would choose.

DIY Beauty Recipes Courtesy of Yuve Vegan Nutritional Shakes

Posted by: Jordan

 

Yuve shakes I was recently introduced to Yuve, a vegan nutritional shake that is non-GMO, soy-free,  and dairy-free and made with raw chia seeds and cocoa.  According to their co-founder:

Created by a former Russian dancer, Yuve is a new, convenient, and delicious way to consume all of the essential ingredients the body requires to sustain health, beauty and youthfulness on the go. Moreover, it’s formulated using over 25 all natural ingredients and avoids the sins of its industry entirely. No Artificial Colors. No Artificial Sweeteners. No Artificial Flavors. Whatsoever. Yuve was created less than a year ago and had a big success among its consumers.
On a hurried morning–as they all are now that school has started–earlier this week, I decided to put my sample package in a blender with some almond milk and ice.  It was so delicious, you guys!!!  While drinking my yummy, frothy, healthy shake, I skimmed over all the vitamins, protein (16 grams!), minerals, fiber, and lack of calories and sugar in the shake.  There’s nothing artificial, just an easy way to drink a super healthy breakfast!  Yuve shakes also have beautifying ingredients: “Resveratrol, vitamins, and antioxidants improve your skin, hair and fluid balance” I read on the package.  Sounds pretty good to me.  And tastes great too–trust my 4-year-old, who eagerly helped me enjoy it! (Is it terrible that I tried to drink it as quickly as I could so as not to share it??)  After quickly (selfishly) downing my shake, I ran off to volunteer for Organ Donor Enrollment Day which included a fun (read: terrifying) spin class.  Upon completing a sweaty morning of spinning and trying to get NY’ers to sign up to be organ donors, I realized…I wasn’t counting the minutes until lunchtime like I normally am at 11am.  Yuve, thanks for making my crazy morning that much less like a Cathy comic since I didn’t have the typical mid-morning hangriness due to my typical lacking breakfast.  Interested in trying Yuve for yourself?  Sign up for your free sample on their website.
And now, as promised, the DIY beauty recipes from Yuve!  I can’t wait to try out all of these as the weather cools down and I spend more time at home during my free time.

 

Super Facial Mask with Pomegranate

This mask works for pretty much all types of skin. Easy to make, it moisturizes your skin and leaves it looking and feeling softer. It is important to use Manuka honey and not just a regular honey due to its great antibacterial properties. Also, make sure you use unrefined organic Shea butter. There are lots of different types of Shea butter on the market, but keep in mind that refined and ultra-refined Shea butter will not have the same healing properties as the raw one!
Do NOT use canned pomegranate juice! Only natural pomegranate squeezed juice revitalizes skin by promoting collagen and elastin production. It also reduces the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines.  Cacao helps to decrease puffiness in the face and the eye area and brightens skin.  Sounds good, right? Well, simply follow the instructions and enjoy fruitful results!

2 tsp Manuka Honey
1 tsp Raw Shea Butter
1 tsp Fresh-Squeezed Pomegranate Juice
1 tsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 tsp Fresh-Squeezed Apple Juice (use instead of cacao for a more toning effect)

Instructions:

1. Heat up 2 teaspoons of Manuka honey and 1 teaspoon of Shea butter.
2. Add 1 teaspoon of fresh-squeezed pomegranate juice and 1 teaspoon of cacao
3. Cool off the mixture and apply it to the face.
4. Leave it on for 10-15min and then rinse with warm water.

Facial Toning Ice –Cubes Natural Skin Treatment

The benefits of using a facial toner are remarkable. Smaller looking pores, refreshed feeling and the added moisture are just a few of the advantages. But did you know that using a toner also helps prevent ingrown hairs, restores the pH balance, and adds a layer of protection to your face? Toner achieves this by tightening cell gaps and reducing the penetration of impurities and containments in the environment.

Our Facial Toning Ice Cubes mixture is an easy and natural way to gain these benefits and all from the comfort of your kitchen. With only five ingredients you probably already have around your house, you can create a batch of our facial toning ice cubes and use this natural skin treatment first thing in the morning.

Ingredients:
Handful of fresh parsley
2 Cucumbers
4 tbsp Aloe Vera

Directions:

1. Place fresh parsley in a saucepan with water and let water boil.
2. Strain water with parsley and put clear water in a bowl.
3. Place cucumber and kiwi in a juice maker and squeeze juice.
4. Mix juice with the parsley water in a bowl.
5. Add aloe Vera juice and mix everything.
6. Pour liquid in ice cube trays and put it in the fridge.
7. Apply one cube to your face every morning.

Coco Lemon Body Scrub

How well did you care for your skin this summer?  Summer activities can make our skin look and feel drier than normal, and a body lotion may not be enough to replenish your skin and bring back its natural moisture and glow, however, an exfoliating can.  Our Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub recipe will not only save you money but will leave your skin feeling fresh, soft to the touch and smelling yummy.  Whip up a batch for you and while you’re at it make a batch for a friend or family member. Their skin will thank you!

Ingredients

½ Cup Organic Coconut Oil
½ Coconut Flour
¼ cup Grind Oatmeal
15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
15 drops Essential Rose Oil
20 drops Essential Sweet Orange Oil (You can use other essential oils too)

Directions

1. Combine all the ingredients and mix them until smooth texture.

Rub your body with a scrub while taking shower and rinse it with water.

PJR Outing: Jane Iredale “Magic Hour” Launch + Giveaway!

Posted by:  Jordan

Jane Iredale The Golden Hour collection

Last week Emily and I had a fun night out when we attended the launch of Jane Iredale’s new Spring makeup collection honoring their 20th anniversary, the Magic Hour, which refers to the golden  hour of light just before sunset.  Think warm, shimmery colors–just what you’re craving this time of year!  The event was a garden party theme, complete with lawn games, makeovers, Spring-y hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, and beautiful flowers and glowy candlelight everywhere.

Jane Iredale Magic Hour event

The new collection, available in early March, is out-of-this-world stunning.  I’m honestly in love with all of the products, but the new Jelly Jar inky gel eyeliners really stand out as something special.  They’re completely natural and even STAY PUT on my lids, which is something I’ve been searching for in a liner for a long time.  The new angle eyeliner brush makes applying the nearly waterproof gel eyeliners a breeze.  The In Touch cream-to-powder highlighter in the beautiful new golden coral color known as Comfort is gorgeous on cheekbones and just under the eyebrows–it’s glowy rather than glittery, so you won’t look like a disco ball by using it.  Plus, it smells faintly of honeysuckle.  Unexpectedly, I’m really digging the new Lip Fixation stain & gloss.  I didn’t think I’d be such a fan of this product, as I’m usually turned off by the moisture-sucking texture of lip stains (it usually reminds me of applying pretzel dust to my lips).  And, I really can’t stand sparkles in my lip gloss.  Combine the two, and I just didn’t expect to like these lip products one bit.  But, to my surprise, I’m using them every day and loving how they look and feel!  The stains stay put but don’t make my lips feel dry.  The gloss is on the tackier side of glosses, but doesn’t feel gluey.  It just feels like the gloss is going to stay on longer than if it were the watery feel that some glosses have.  The two new stain colors are gorgeous: Compulsion is a pretty berryish mauve and Craze is a perky, bright coral.  I like to mix the two stains together to create a coral-y berry color.  Sounds ugly, but unless my bathroom lighting is really off, I think it looks nice.  Correct me if the next time you see me and my coral-berry stained lips look totally unflattering.  I haven’t used the eyeshadows much yet but here’s what Emily had to say about them:  “Appropriately named Golden Girl, these are the most classic, classy eye shades, ever. I often avoid eye compacts or palettes because they always include some juvenile blue or green I have no use for, but these three shades are mature without being the least bit boring. They are rich and lush and flattering on everyone I can possibly imagine using them. If you’re hesitant about eye shadows, this would be a great starter set. If you’re already a big eye shadow user, this will be your new go-to.”

Here are some (surprisingly entertaining) video tutorials on how to use the new collection to achieve three different looks:
