BelEssence

This product was recommended by Chris Williams from N/A

BelEssence, a skin care company making effective skin care products from natural and organic ingredients. BelEssence creates its products based on a simple principle – nutrition for the skin. Our skin has an amazing ability to heal, rejuvenate and regenerate and look young and healthy, and if we give our skin the nutrition it needs, it will become soft, healthy, youthful and glowing.

The skin care combines plant oils that are the richest natural sources of vitamins, omega 3s, fatty acids and other nutrients important for healthy skin to give the maximum nutrition and get the maximum results. It is a very effective skin care that shows results quickly, and gives long term transformation. All the ingredients are natural and/or organic, and the packaging is minimal and recyclable.


Bloomiss

This product was recommended by Crystal Leochko from Bloomiss Naturals

The clean product line was created to help women live their healthiest lives by providing access to products that are toxin-free, luxurious, and give them the results they are intended to do. I created the line while struggling with infertility and learning the huge importance of what we put on our bodies and how it can disrupt our hormones.


4Curls

This product was recommended by Marissa Atiya from 4Curls

The 4Curls Curly Hair Growth oil features the plant-based ingredients: coffee and peppermint oil. Studies have shown coffee to significantly increased follicle stimulation thus resulting in hair growth. Additionally, peppermint oil performed better at promoting hair than minoxidil. These two ingredients are the foundation of our healthy hair growth supplement. As part of our clean hair care beauty line, 4Curls Curly Hair Growth oil is backed by science and powered by nature.

Birdie Botanicals

This product was recommended by Mary Winkenwerder from MaryWinkenwerder

Birdie Botanicals is an eco friendly brand that produces great results with every use. The owner/developer is great to work with. Sally takes pride in developing products that work very well!


LaliCup

This product was recommended by Mateja Kalin from LaliCup

Women spend around 1,800€ in their lifetime on tampons, which makes menstrual cup (that can be used for multiple years) an amazing alternative that saves us a lot of money. Sure, it is an investment at first; LaliCup costs 31€, but it ensures the best quality material and it definitely pays of in the long run. It is great for traveling as it takes up considerably less space in the luggage and you can wear it continuously for up to 12 hours.

I will spare you the rant on how much better LaliCup is for the environment compared to tampons and pads. Lalicup is healthier, more comfortable, ecological and wallet-friendly alternative to traditional feminine hygiene products that lets you focus on whatever you are doing (traveling, swimming, running after kids …) instead of worrying about where to find the next toiletsice it can be worn for up to 12 hours.


BOLD & BARE

This product was recommended by Magda Ziółkowska from BOLD & BARE

BOLD & BARE is an essential collection of simplified, multitasking skincare for the modern woman, that lives a full life and doesn’t have much time to spend hours on her daily skincare routine.
