Organic Skincare | Glow by JS47 Canadian Brand | Review

 Hello lovelies,

   With all of the time that I have been spending at home the past year, skincare has been of the utmost importance. I have been focusing more on using natural and organic products and dedicating more time to my self-care routine. Having a solid skincare and self-care routine has allowed me time to be more centered, calm and less anxious, plus my skin looks and feels amazing! 

  I was recently introduced to a new organic skincare brand that is not only female owned but also Canadian, which is not that common to come by, so I was very excited to partner with them and try their products. GlowbyJS47 offers a range of products that can be used on your body, face and hair. All of their products are organic and contain ingredients that you can actually read. Their products are for everyone - men, women and children, which I love as I am also able to use them on my kids who all have sensitive skin. 

Here are the products that I have tried from GlowbyJS47 and my favourite benefits of each:

Shea Butter and Olive Oil Moisturizer

The texture of the Shea Butter and Olive Oil Moisturizer is hard as it is cold pressed, however it melts into your skin. I use this as an overall body moisturizer and on the ends of my hair. It has a light smell that is not at all too strong, which is perfect for those who are sensitive to smell. All three of my kids get eczema and when they have flare ups, this is my go-to product. I put it on my kids skin before they go to bed and their skin is clear by morning.

Shea Butter and Lemon Moisturizer

Similar to the above moisturizer, the Shea Butter and Lemon Moisturizer is a cold pressed product. With the addition of lemon, this moisturizer is packed full of vitamin C and it also offers a light exfoliant. I love using this moisturizer of my face after I do any treatments, as the vitamin C helps with cell turnover and provides anti-aging benefits. I also use it on my body where I have stretch marks and it has greatly helped to soften the texture of my skin and aid it the reduced appearance of some of my street hair marks.

Carrot Oil Face Serum

The Carrot Oil Serum is by far one of my favourites. During the winter months I have had some hormonal breakouts and this face serum combined with the Lemon Moisturizer, have both drastically helped to clear up my skin. Carrot oil has antibacterial, antifungal and and anti-inflammatory benefits that directly help to heal and prevent acne. The serum is not too thick and has a light smell to it. A little goes a long with this product.

Balanite Oil Face Serum

The Balanite Oil Face Serum helps to soften textured skin, while also providing intense moisture, as it is extremely absorbable, allowing into to penetrate into the dream levels of the skin. This oil contains linolic acid and oldie acid, as well as a natural steroid diosgenin which helps heal acne and acne scarring, which is also something that I was dealing heavily with during the winter months.

Organic skincare products are usually offered at a much higher price range, but this entire line from GlowbyJS47 is incredibly affordable. All of their skincare products are under $30 and the amount of product that you get, especially with the Shea Butter Moisturizers is incredible. I cannot rave about their products enough. The fact that their products are clean, organic and safe to use on my kids is a huge plus. The effectiveness of their products and how quickly they have changed the appearance of my skin is another bonus. With some other product lines, you have to commit to only using their brand for 3+ months until you see a noticeable difference and that is not the case with the GlowbyJS47 product line. I noticed a difference in both the appearance and texture of my skin within DAYS of using their products. I also still continue to use some of my favourite products from other brands (toners, treatments, eye creams etc..) and it has not disrupted their effectiveness in any way. 

If you are looking for a new skincare brand that is organic, Canadian and female owned, then I highly recommend you try out the GlowbyJS47 product line. They also offer skincare packages under $40 that would make the perfect gift for a girlfriend, sister or even for your mom. Giving the gift of skincare is also giving the gift of self-care and every man and woman deserves to have some self-care time.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope that you all enjoyed this post and if you try our any of their products, leave me a comment below and let me know your favs.

Swipe Your Look | Review | A New Way to Shop Online

Hello lovelies,

  If you are an avid mall goer and shopper like me, then you miss going into stores and trying on the latest fashion and styles.  Depending on where you live in the world and with everything going on, shopping and trying on clothes may not be something that is even possible right now. This is why I am so excited to share a new way to shop with Swipe Your Look

  Swipe Your Look is a new website that allows you to rate clothing and accessory styles just like Tinder - it is like a dating website, but for clothes - by answering a few questions and literally swiping to choose your favourite styles. After you have finished swiping through and choosing styles that you like or don’t like, you are then mailed a curated box of 5 clothing and accessory items just for you. With over 150+ brands, believe me when I say that you will absolutely love the style selections that they have to offer. 

  Once you have received your box, you have 10 days to try on and style your items to decide which pieces you want to keep. You can keep one item or you can keep all 5 of the items that you are sent. The best part is that you only pay for what you keep. An amazing thing that Swipe Your Look offers, is price matching. If you find a lower price for one of the items that you receive, they will match the price. There are no upfront or subscription costs. You choose the frequency of how often you want to receive your boxes and you pay a $20 deposit that you can then use towards the payment of the items that you decide to keep. Which ever items you choose not to keep you can ship back for free. Swipe Your Look has so graciously sponsored this post and is offering a $15 discount off your first deposit when you use my code “MELANIE15”, 

  I am so excited to show you all of the items I received and I cannot wait for you all to try out the service for yourselves. Once you do, I know that you will love Swipe Your Look as much as I do.

  I am literally obsessed with each piece that was sent to me, I only sent back two items. I sent back the bracelets, although I loved them, they were a bit too small and I also sent back the earrings, just because I know that I won’t wear them that often. To see my try on haul be use to check out my video on Instagram.

Start swiping with Swipe Your Look to find your new favourite items and try them on in the comfort of your own home. Don’t forget to use code “MELANIE15” in order to save $15 off your first deposit.
