I have been discovering a lot of seriously awesome brands and products lately. I had so many favorites for the month of December that weren’t makeup related, but also weren’t strictly skincare or lifestyle or whatever, so I decided to combine all of my December non-makeup faves into one post!
Let’s start with Canvas Candle Company. I spied their booth at a local market I went to about a month ago and took advantage of a 2 for $25 sale (or something around that price, I can’t quite remember now) they were having. I ditched ALL of my Bath & Body Works candles the minute I learned how awful they are for you and have since replaced them with natural, clean-burning versions. Canvas Candle Company makes their candles with 100% ecosoy wax, phthalate-free fragrance oils, essential oils and cotton wicks. I bought two of their fall/winter scents, Apple Spice and Pumpkin Chai, and ooooh my gosh. They smell SO GOOD.
Next up- I put this mug in the photo, but really it’s supposed to represent the entire subscription box that is The Pink Box. The first month that I received this box, I thought it was aimed at younger women- maybe in their preteen to early teen years. It was cute, but something that I’d gift rather than buy for myself. Then I received December’s box, and I totally changed my mind. They stepped up their game and made the box so much more appealing to me as a 20-something! You can see everything I got in my December The Pink Box here and then use the code CHELSEALOVESPINK for 10% off any of their subscription plans.
I have been raving about The Takesumi Detox Bamboo Charcoal Deodorant by Kaia Naturals for at least a month now. Anytime I see someone mention natural deodorant, I’m like, “BUTHAVEYOUTRIEDKAIANATURALSBECAUSEILOVEIT.” Yeah, I get that excited about it! I’m just super stoked to have totally weaned myself off of conventional deodorants (good riddance, aluminum) and this one gets full credit for getting me there.
I first fell in love with Province Apothecary via their name. I don’t know why, but it speaks to me, haha. Next was with their beautiful packaging, and then close after, their amazing products! I got their Moisturizing Cleanser + Makeup Remover in my Best of Green Beauty Canada Box from The Detox Market (which you can still get, by the way! And there’s a US box, too) and love it. They also sent me their Radiant Body Oil to try out, and I knew from then on that Province Apothecary and I were meant to be.
LUSH Rose Jam Shower Gel. It’s one of my many last hurrahs of products filled with ingredients I’ll no longer be using after the new year because the scent is just too good to part with.
How gorgeous is this Kendra Scott bracelet I got in my last POPSUGAR Must Have Box? It’s basically my most favorite subscription box of all time because you get an awesome variety of beauty, fashion, food and lifestyle products in every box. I’ve been subscribed for years! Use code SHOP5 for $5 off your first box.
One of my finer late night impulse purchases- these Good JuJu Apothecary treatment candles are the beeeest. They have them for a few ailments, like coughs & colds, stress, sore muscles, etc and when you melt them down a bit you can then dip your fingers in the melted down ointment and massage it into your temples/back/chest/wherever it’s meant to go. So awesome!
These wireless Sudio Vasa Bla headphones are a game changer! I didn’t think not having a cord attached to my phone would make much difference, but it totally does. I’m no longer getting all wrapped up in my headphone cord when I’m on public transit and trying to take off my jacket or when I’m in bed all tangled up in blankets and headphone cords. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re really pretty!
Lastly are the beautiful set of rosewater skin mists from Imbue Goods. I am allll about facial sprays (seriously, I spritz myself at my desk all day long- they’re so refreshing and smell so nice!), and these are definitely my current favorite. There are four different mists that are all made of rosewater and a blend of essential oils:
- Heaven (summery, fresh and effervescent)
- Muse (sweet and refreshing with notes of citrus)
- Soothe (minty, cool and calming)
- Lust (seductive, woody and floral)
And guess what? Imbue Goods has been so kind as to offer a full set of their rosewater skin mists to one of my readers! That’s right, one lucky person will win all FOUR of these beauties. All you have to do is enter using the Rafflecopter below! This giveaway will end as soon as the clock ticks over to the new year (PST) and it’s open to my US and Canadian readers. Good luck!
