Spring in a jar! Check out Olivina’s fragrant Wild Cherry Almond candle!

I’m absolutely obsessing over Olivina’s gorgeous new Wild Cherry Almond line! I have the beautiful soy candle with essential oils, in Wild Cherry Almond. It is such a beautiful, refreshing candle. The fragrance is so strong – and it really permeates your whole house! My son walked in from school thinking there was something yummy brewing (I’m such a disappointment!).

I love the scent so much I’m going to have to check out the rest of the line! I can have it in soaps, lotions, wash, room mist and more!

Obsessed much? YES!

Balanced Guru Astringent Masque

balanced_guru

I have been hearing about Balanced Guru for a few months now so I jumped at the chance to review one of their face masques. I received the Astringent Masque to review, a masque designed to detoxifying oily/congested skin.

The first thing you notice with the balanced guru masques is that they come in powder form. It might seem odd at first but its actually quite cool. You just add the powder to a small bowl then activate it with water, toner, raw honey or yogurt. How great you can customize each treatment?

The masque smells amazing and the oatmeal and lemon elements are very soothing. I chose to mix mine with water and did a 50/50 mix and got the perfect consistency.  The masque tingled at first but not in a painful way it was very refreshing. I left it on for a little over 15 minutes. Once I rinse it off my skin feels so revitalized. I can’t wait to try this masque with other liquids to get a whole new experience.

And if your not sure which masque is the right one for you balance guru makes it easy offering small 1oz tubs of the products. Making it easy and affordable to try multiple items.
