Let's talk about Canadian love, beauty product edition.. +a guest post!

It's a wonderful thing meeting fellow Canadian beauty bloggers and I have the pleasure of introducing one of my favs to you today..

Check out Miranda's post below and link up/leave us some Canadian love if you have a product or story to share :)


Hey Everyone,

It's Miranda, from Miranda Loves and I'd like to thank Holly for allowing me the opportunity to guest post on her blog this month. With that being said, the theme is Canadian Love. Being a Canadian Blogger I try my best to focus on Canadian Brands, so I was quite excited when this theme came up and I can share my loves :) 


The Brands with my favorite products (and why I love them) are included below:
1. Saje Natural Wellness - I was introduced to this brand by my friend at work who said that she used the Stress Relief blend and the Peppermint one to help with her migraines naturally. Being a person who has migraines quite frequently, and tries to stay clear from taking tylenol or advil unless I have to, I decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, it honestly works. You put the peppermint oil on your pressure points and within a few minutes, you feel relief. I love it! Because of that, I decided to get the diffiuser for my condo and i love the natural scent and calmness it creates in my space. I really would ask that everyone try Saje out, everyone who uses it, loves it.

2. B.Kamins - this is my current skincare right now. Being a purely Canadian created and produced brand, it adds to my Canadian love. My favorite right now is the Night Cream and Earth Mask. The night cream contains little balls of pure Vitamin E that provides restorative properties to your face. 

3. Soapstones - I found this brand when I was in Muskoka 2 years ago. I used to have lots of issues with regular drugstore deodorants as it created rashes, and ingrowns (not a pretty sight). This one is created with natural ingredients and does not contain titanium dioxide so it won't irritate your armpits. 

4. Graydon Clinical Luxury by Nature - My favorite product from this is the Hair Smoothie. I am on my 2nd bottle and already have a 3rd one waiting to be used. This is a conditioner that is light enough to be used in your scalp. In addition, it is made with natural products like brocolli seed oil, sage, rosemary and lime. This product, when applied to my scalp and massaged in, has helped with hair growth! My hair feels thicker already and I see little short hairs coming out :) 

5. Love Fresh - I was introduced to this brand at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, and normally I am quite picky with hand lotions with either the texture or scent. This one, Guava, is a perfect blend of fruit and isn't too overwhelming. The lotion is moisturizing but not greasy at all and quickly absorbs into the skin. 

6. Annabelle Cosmetics - To be honest, I stayed clear from drugstore makeup in the past, however, when I was sent a few Annabelle Products to try - I became a convert. I realized that just because it is drugstore, doesn't necessarily mean that it is better or worse than higher end products you can find at Sephora for example. Obviously you have to pick and choose what you try out. Anyways - of my favorite products, this one takes the cake. I have never found a product that smelled like Lychee. I LOVE lychee - lychee bubble tea, the fruit itself... and when  i found a lip balm that is Lychee scented, I had to try it. Let me tell you, this smells legitimate, not artificial .. I LOVE IT! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post of my favorite Canadian products - what are some of yourss? I'd love to hear from you. 

Thanks again Holly for hosting me on your lovely blog!!

Until next time, XO - M.
