Go Cruelty Free with Lily Cole and The Body Shop!

Monday, July 30th, 2012

 

 

 

This sum­mer, go cruelty-free with Lily Cole and The Body Shop! Cool­Canucks and The Body Shop are offer­ing you the chance to win an amaz­ing gift bas­ket val­ued at more than $100, filled with the new, lim­ited edi­tion make-up range: Cru­elty Free Make-Up, launched in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Lily Cole.

 

Cel­e­brat­ing The Body Shop Against Ani­mal Test­ing ethos, Cru­elty Free Make-Up con­tains no ani­mal prod­ucts and hasn’t ever been tested on ani­mals. With ultra-expressive colours, shim­mer­ing looks and super soft giant puffs for per­fect appli­ca­tion every time, being cruelty-free has never been so glam­orous! For more infor­ma­tion, please visit: www.thebodyshop.ca

 

 

 

 

Cruelty-free is a gen­eral term that describes an activ­ity that doesn’t require death or harm to humans or ani­mals for the activ­ity to occur.

I am a huge believer in cruelty-free prod­ucts, no mat­ter what it is. I refuse to know­ingly use a prod­uct that tests on ani­mals. When it comes to cos­met­ics, test­ing on ani­mals is absolutely unac­cept­able to me. No ani­mal should have to suf­fer for the van­ity of humans.

 

 

 

 

 

Find­ing makeup brands that don’t test on ani­mals can be a bit dif­fi­cult, but I am now ecsta­tic to announce The Body Shop is a com­pany who really cares and is 100% against ani­mal cru­elty! The Body Shop prod­ucts are veg­e­tar­ian and 100% cruelty-free. Lily Cole’s Cruelty-Free Make-up col­lec­tion is cel­e­brat­ing The Body Shop against ani­mal test­ing ethos, and The Body Shop has been ded­i­cated to this issue for many years!

 

 

 

 

 

Pur­chase these phe­nom­e­nal cru­elty free cos­met­ics at the The Body Shop online, or be sure to hurry to your near­est The Body Shop store to get yours now!!

Win It!!  As men­tioned in my post, Cool­Canucks and The Body Shop are offer­ing you the chance to win an amaz­ing gift bas­ket val­ued at more than $100, filled with the new, lim­ited edi­tion make-up range: Cru­elty Free Make-Up, launched in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Lily Cole!! Open to Cana­dian res­i­dents only.

Sweet Libertine Cosmetics Review!

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

 

Sarah Waller started Sweet Lib­er­tine Min­eral Cos­met­ics on Feb­ru­ary 14th, 2009. Unsat­is­fied with the qual­ity and price of high-priced cos­met­ics, she spent months try­ing to find a bet­ter option. It wasn’t long until Sarah was mak­ing her own eye­shad­ows, blend­ing col­ors and micas and oxides. Her friends heard about it and asked her to list some in her Etsy shop and she did – and the entire store sold out within an hour. Sweet Lib­er­tine con­tin­ued to grow over time and is now run by Sarah Waller and her hus­band, Justin.

 

 

What I like about Sweet Lib­er­tine is that they blend  most of her own colours. The names of the prod­ucts are absolutely awe­some.  I love the humour and wit behind the business!!

I had the oppor­tu­nity of being able to review Sweet Lib­er­tine Shad­ows, I really liked the shad­ows. A prob­lem I have with a lot of min­er­als is that they tend to get muddy/cakey on my lids right away. These colours kept an excel­lent level of iri­des­cence and  clar­ity  through the work­day. As with any min­eral shadow, primer is a must!

 

I give Sweet Lib­er­tine a huge thumbs up! Shop­ping online with them is a com­plete snap as every­thing you are look­ing for is so neatly categorized!

You can shop inex­pen­sively by click­ing here for their website.

“Our skin is a two-way mem­brane.  Just as tox­ins are released from the body through per­spi­ra­tion, every­thing that we apply to our skin is absorbed through

It is impor­tant that our skin can be nour­ished from the out­side; how­ever, we must be cau­tious about the ingre­di­ents in our skin care prod­ucts.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lavera Skin Care Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Lav­era is an organic range of skin­care that in my hon­est opin­ion beats all other’s that I have tried yet. At Lav­era they are com­mit­ted to bring­ing you the health­i­est & safest prod­ucts: organic cos­met­ics, organic makeup, organic skin care, organic sun­screen, and so much more!!

Lav­era Organic Skin­care cre­ates 100% nat­ural cos­met­ics and skin­care, with the main focus on tol­er­ance for even the most sen­si­tive skin. Lav­era boasts that they are the only nat­ural cos­met­ics man­u­fac­turer that offers a com­plete sys­tem of body and skin care spe­cially for­mu­lated for allergy suf­fer­ers and sen­si­tive skin. Their anti aging line Lavere, is quite pop­u­lar among the eco friendly Hol­ly­wood set for being effec­tive, gen­tle and ‘green’. In fact they are the most ‘green’ beauty and skin­care man­u­fac­turer in the mar­ket, with cer­ti­fied nat­ural and cer­ti­fied organic ingre­di­ents. Their prod­ucts are also gluten free, paraben free, and ‘cru­elty free’.

Lavere, the anti aging line, uses repair­ing vit­a­mins, pure plant-based flavones, nutrac­e­ramides, soramides and olive leaf extracts for their nour­ish­ing organic essen­tials, which ensure gen­uine accel­er­a­tion of cell renewal, resis­tance to free rad­i­cals and reduced lines.

Lavera.com sent me some mag­ni­fi­cient prod­ucts to review which I highly rec­om­mend to any­one out there who has not had the oppor­tu­nity to try them for themselves!

I was sent their Famous lav­era Man­gomilch Hair Sham­poo as well as their Mango Milk Hair Con­di­tioner and both of these prod­ucts are com­pletely outstanding!

Not only do these 2 prod­ucts make your hair soft, smooth, silky and shiny — they smell heav­enly to boot!!

NATURALLY EFFECTIVE, ORGANIC HAIR CARE
“What chem­i­cals are you putting in your hair? With Lavera’s Hair line, rest assured that its all nat­ural and free from Sodium Lau­royl Sul­fate and Parabens!

Lav­era offers a Hair Styling Gel with extra strong hold and a full range of sham­poos and con­di­tion­ers that are sim­ply delicious!

You’ll also want to try our sham­poos: Mango Milk for Col­ored Hair, Rose Milk for Dry Hair, Apple Milk for Nor­mal Hair, Lemon Milk for Oily Hair, Almond Milk for Sen­si­tive Hair, Orange Milk for Fine Hair and Corn­flower for Dan­druff Con­trol! You’ll be blown away every morn­ing by the all nat­ural scents we’ve cap­tured in every bottle!”

Shop­ping at Lav­era is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side of their web­site, and their prices are totally rea­son­able as well! They have an exten­sive array of fab­u­lous prod­ucts such as:

  • Best Sell­ers
  • Clear­ance up to 90% off
  • Beauty Kits/Starter Sets
