I’ve been working with NOW Foods for over a year now and during that time I’ve been lucky enough to try many of the products in NOW’s 1400+ product line. In 2019, I was lucky enough to visit NOW’s impressive headquarters and labs in Illinois before the pandemic hit. Even before I knew NOW Foods, I already knew NOW Foods because their products are sold everywhere and have been a longtime staple in many American households throughout its 50 year history. Even after five decades, NOW Foods remains a family owned company committed to bettering their customers’ lives.

It’s been five years since I first introduced my skin to Odacite’s highly active formulas, and in this full Odacite skincare review, I am finally sharing my thoughts on the products I’ve tried over the years.

What do bloggers actually do all day? For anyone curious about what I actually do all day as a green beauty blogger and my full time blogger schedule, this is for you.
Managing a blog requires a lot of different skills including writing, editing, photography, social media management, and learning how to run a successful business. While it doesn’t look like a respectable or demanding profession from the outside, I actually find myself working longer hours than I did at my corporate job. The flipside is that I get to make my own schedule, work from anywhere and take days off if I choose to.Read more

Looking for effective organic hair care? After using Evolvh products for years I’m finally getting around to documenting my thoughts on the world wide web. A luxury natural haircare brand based out of the Bay area, Evolvh has certainly evolved a lot over the years with many new additions to their expanding line.
They also switched to an all-natural grapefruit essential oil fragrance!
What I appreciate about Evolvh Hair products is that instead of using ingredients that simply coat the hair to make it “look” healthy, they use ingredients that are backed by science to meet the molecular needs of strands at their very core. They are also a “no nasties” committed brand that is:

I recently discovered the Hey Dewy portable humidifier and was curious to see for myself why celebrity esthetician Shani Darden uses it.
