I recently received a sample of this new product that I’d love to share with you. Oliviate is an all natural exfoliating scrub made with organic olive pomace (the pulp leftover after pressing out the oil), lemongrass essential oil and vegan glycerin. The simple, natural ingredients and lack of plastic microbeads make this a great choice for a gentle facial scrub that’s kind to your skin and the environment.   

I’ve used Oliviate for a couple of weeks now and I’m a big fan. It’s the perfect balance of scrubby but not too scrubby. It left skin feeling renewed and very smooth and the olive oil is very gentle and the residue kept my skin moisturized and soft after it was rinsed off.

Oliviate is not yet sold in stores and the company has launched a fundraising campaign to make it available in retail stores. Click here to support this new company and get your bottle of Oliviate! They are also using a referral reward program (info in the graphic below) so you can earn extra goodies if your friends use your link to the Indiegogo campaign!

Oliviate has until June 20th to meet their fundraising goal so please consider donating to the cause, supporting this venture and keeping plastic microbeads out of our oceans! Please SHARE!








Nail polish I’m loving

If I’m feel extra jazzy, sometimes I stay up super late and paint my nails. It’s the only time I’m (almost) guaranteed to be able to paint them and let them dry without smudging. It’s a given that should I try and paint them while baby E is on the loose, she will poop/climb on me/cry/want to nurse/touch me.

I am loving…

And of course, this little baby makes it so whatever color I choose dries smooth, shiny and lightning fast, in case E wakes up whilst my nails are getting fancy (like she did tonight)…

What’s on your fingers and toes? Evidently I’m slow on this plummy/grey trend, so what’s hip now?
