BareBlissBox Eco-beauty subscription box review

A new subscription box debuted in September, BareBlissBox, with a focus on natural and organic beauty products. (they also included a lifestyle product in there too!) This is exactly what I have been looking for (I love trying new and green goodies!) so I was psyched to receive a box from BareBlissBox to review. I have been enjoying this box for the past several weeks now and let me tell you, I can't WAIT for the next one.. I'm been loving each and every single product here!

Here's what I got:

* A.dorn Nail polish - in Silver  - this 5-free polish has just the right amount of sparkle! I saw other subscribers receive this in a dark red and a lime green.

* Aromaflage fragrance sample (which doubles as an insect repellent!) This smells pretty good with its dual purpose. Will probably need to get the full size by next year's mosquito season..

* Kosmatology lotion bar- Scented in Grapefruit, this has got to be the CUTEST packaging ever! Reminds me of a small deodorant bottle, so I will have to figure out how to reuse this once I'm done with the lotion. The note card says it is best applied on damp skin, but I've found it to work just as well on dry skin. It's great for touch ups around the elbows, knees and even heels.

* Palmetto derma Eye Cream- this retinol * peptide lifting cream contains firming antioxidants to help smooth and soothe your delicate skin around your eyes. Want to make it feel even cooling? Pop it in your fridge! Feels like you're wearing an eye mask but without anyone knowing!

* SW Basics- Vegan cocoa lip balm (Not gonna lie- I was hoping it would be a toner or exfoliant as they published on their Instagram page.) This lip balm is amazing though.

(Here's another photo of the box from a friend who was one of the first 100 subscribers! She received an extra goody too!)

Thanks to BareBlissBox for this amazing box! Don't forget to subscribe on BareBlissBox.com to get your October box today! ($16.99/monthly OR get a 3 month subscription for $12.99/month)

Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil Review

One of my favorite oils to use for my skincare routine is tea tree oil. Its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties help clear skin and also has aromatherapy benefits too! Some facial cleansers that I have include tea tree oil and I have seen it work well. There are many other uses w/ Tea Tree Oil, including helping with dry skin, sunburns and scars.

Through BrandBacker, I've been using the Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil and many recipes included to make my own DIY solutions- think facial cleansers, spot remover and masks! One of my go-to recipes is the air mist filled with essential oils to help calm and provide clarity (at least it does for me). The recipe includes lavender, clary sage, and lemon essential oils so it smells amazing. All of the recipes is a mixture of something with the tea tree oil- never use oil by itself.

Interested in getting this tea tree oil bottle PLUS an e-book w/ 50+ recipes? Check it out on amazon.com  to get your bottle today!
