noyah cosmetics review
I would like to introduce everyone to noya cosmetics! I am "over the moon" impressed with both their all-natural lipsticks and lip glosses. I tried their Empire Red lipstick first, because red begs to be noticed. This is my favorite red lip stick that I have ever tried...period. This lipstick is semi-matte and goes on smooth. Not only that, the staying power is truly strong all-day long.

African Nights noyah cosmetics lipstick

I love African Nights just as much as the Empire Red. The Empire Red is a bright and vibrant red, whereas the African Nights is a richer and deeper brick red. Again, it is a semi-matte shade that stays all day. I am so impressed with these shades. I do not even need a lip liner! Trust me when I say, you will adore these lip sticks.

Description for lipstick on noyah.com
The lightweight formula leaves lips looking hydrated, while the super-pigmented red shade goes on perfectly opaque in just one swipe. Our all-natural lipsticks are formulated with ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and skin-protecting Vitamin E, hydrating lips while adding a punchy pop to your pout. They come in a range of shades from a vibrant red to a flirty pink, versatile enough to take you from daytime chic to a fun-filled, sultry evening look. This lipstick comes in stunning earth-friendly bamboo packaging that not only looks good, but also results in a 60% reduction in plastic.

Latte Love noyah cosmetics lip gloss

These lip glosses are for bosses only! They have incredible staying power and oh so smooth application. I love the nude shade of Latte Love...just a hint of warmth. This is a very natural shade for those who do not like too much pizazz on their lips.

Deeply In Mauve noyah cosmetics lip gloss

This color is a beautiful pop of mauve! My lips feel smooth and moisturized after application. For a lip gloss, they have a very strong staying power. I feel more in love with noyah cosmetics every single day. You need to try these lipsticks and lip glosses!

Description for lip glosses on noyah.com
Our glosses are all-natural and add a rich sheen with a pop of subtle color. Ingredients like Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter and antioxidant rich Vitamin E pack on the moisture to protect and soften the lips - a no-fuss way to add a little boost to a natural daytime look or pack on some luster for an edgier lip combo. This lip gloss comes in packaging made with beautiful, earth-friendly bamboo that not only looks good, but also results in a reduction in plastic.

I absolutely love Flora Polish! It is an incredibly soothing mask full of anti-oxidants and natural minerals to exfoliate and aid in skin elasticity. This is a beautiful anti-aging mask chocked full of skin-loving ingredients for your face. I love the smell. It smells like a field of wildflowers and the lavender really comes through.

The next Esteli product I tried was the Rose + Hibiscus Coconut water Toner Mist known as Hydrate. This toner is so incredibly light and relaxing when the mist hits your face. A very light scent of Rose + other herbals is noted. My skin has definitely been hydrated, no flakes here, since using Hydrate. I use Hydrate after the Flora Polish after my face is sparkling clean and dry.

PurUrth Cosmetics Review
Loose Powder(Mica) Eye Shadows
I have tried the beautiful emerald green shade of "Mountain High" and the majestic purple color known as "Eyes-Ready". I love love love love love them both. Did I say I love these eye shades? They give you a pop of color and blend magnificently well. The stay power is strong all day.

Organic Botanical Mist + Toner
Comprised of Organic Neroli + Bulgarian Rose! You will not want to spritz anything else on your face after trying this incredible toner. It is light, refreshing, and feels utterly spectacular. My skin has been break-out free and smooth as a baby's bottom ever since using this product.

Lip LOVE
I adore this product! This is probably my favorite product from PurUrth Cosmetics. This balm is luscious and make your lips silky smooth. Perfect for all year round. I am using Lip Love in place of my favorite lip sticks. You cannot help but LOVE Lip Love!

Ever-lasting Miracle Balm
Whether you are going make-up free or prepping for a big night out, you will want to use this balm first! Light and silky smooth. This balm sinks in your skin fast leaving it smooth and hydrated. I am very impressed with this balm...I just wish I had more! This balm is comprised of skin-loving ingredients such as: Immortelle, Sea Buckthorn CO2, Rosehip CO2, Foraha Oil, Comfrey, Virgin Coconut Oil, Calendula CO2, Lavender


PurUrth Cosmetics Review
Blush for Me
I tried two "Blush for Me" blush variants. The first is the Natural Lip Cheek Tint in Merlot, which I love. See the photo above! It is light and natural looking, but you can definitely tell it is there! This product is Vegan and Gluten-Free. Comprised mostly of Castor Seed Oil. It is a luxurious experience for your cheek bones! Although, I prefer the cheek tint, I also tried "Rose Pink" loose mica blush in the "Blush for Me" series. What I like about this variant is how you can layer and achieve the desired color as light or dark as you wish.

Omega-7 Serum
This Anti-Aging Treatment known as Omega 7 is amazing! Put this on a clean face right before bedtime and wake up to glowing skin the AM. Feed your skin with this seemingly magical elixir! Skin-loving ingredients include: Calendula CO2, Rosehip CO2, Sea Buckthorn CO2, Comfrey, Aloe Vera, Horse Tail, Wheat Germ Oil, and Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol.

PurUrth Cosmetics Review
A Solid Foundation
A Solid Foundation is a loose powder buildable foundation for your face! I enjoyed how smooth and matte this foundation is. I sampled the Alabaster and found it to be a perfect match for my fair skin-tone. You need to try this!

Hydrate is the first product I tried from Alma Botanicals and it did not fail to impress. Below you will see the list of ingredients. I absolutely love lavender and frankincense oil! The floral notes of lavender really come through in this oil. I love how multifaceted Hydrate is. You can use Hydrate for your body, your scalp, your hair, and even in your bath. You can use this oil in combination with facial exfoliated products for a moisturizing face wash. It will even gently remove your make-up whilst giving you a hydrating experience. Hydrate also absorbs efficiently and quickly. Two thumbs up for Hydrate!

Alma Botanicals Review
Next is the Polish, which is excellent in combination with Hydrate. Below you will see the list of ingredients. I love how fine in texture this exfoliating scrub is....like sand. This is not only a great exfoliator for your face, but your body and lips too! The exfoliating is gentle, soothing, and moisturizing simultaneously. Do yourself a favor and buy both Polish and Hydrate together, because they are not only excellent, but can be used hand in hand with each other.

Lastly, is Alma Botanicals Natural Deodorant. I love this natural deodorant! It keeps me from smelling like B.O. and it keeps me dry. I love how stiff the natural deodorant is and how it applies in a thick manner. The rosemary and peppermint is a nice touch...this scent is light and heavenly! I love the cardboard tube packaging too, which is absolutely stunning and very Eco-friendly!

Pranic Forest Apothecary Review

The first product I picked up and was completely drawn to was the Yuvata. Yuvata is a youthful skin mist and toner that includes rose, lavender, hibiscus, and hamamelis virginiana. I am completely in love with this product! I am already fretting over running out of it. The scent is a strong all-natural rose that lingers for a long time. I kept spraying it on my face just to "smell the roses". I also really like the mister itself. The mist is vey fine and feels wonderful as it gently falls to your face.

Pranic Forest Apothecary Review
The next product I explored was the Calm Balm. The Calm Balm is made of candelilla wax, vitamin e, kaolin clay, and coconut oil. You will also find essential oils of sandalwood, vetiver, h. cedarwood, catnip, mandarin, marjoram, and lavender! Just like the Yuvata, the scent lingers and is incredibly relaxing. I think I can replace my Ativan with Calm Balm, because it works! As you may have noted from the previous sentence, I am prone to anxiety. Upon applying the Calm Balm, I immediately felt calmer and more serene. I even put some Calm Balm right under the tip of my nose for an extra calming effect.

Pranic Forest Apothecary Review
After the Calm Balm, I spritzed some Portal on my face. Ahhhh, this is one refreshing spray! Comprised of juniper + thyme. If you have skin that is prone to break outs, you need this spray! Portal smells like you are walking through the forest just after a good rain.

Pranic Forest Apothecary Review
Last, but certainly not least, is the Tree Foot Medicine. Comprised of coconut oil, beeswax, kaolin clay, st. johns wort, grapefruit see extract. Also, essential oils of, st. johns wort, h. cedarwood, ylang ylang, rosewood, peru balsam, eucalyptus globulus, cinnamon bark, and vetiver. This balm smells like delicious cake batter. I love how light this balm is and how it absorbs right into your feet. It was great for the hands too! Perfect for wintertime feet.
