thingsthatwedo.com - pure anada natural black mascara

A little while back I made the decision to simplify the ingredients used on my face and skin. Knowing that I have relatively temperamental and sensitive skin I thought it was time to be more mindful of what I plastered on to my face.

Most recently, I fell in love with Pure Anada. I love their chapsticks, their mineral foundation, and now I’ve fallen in love with their mascara. I purchased the Pure Anada Natural Mascara at my local health food store and oddly enough, it was roughly the same price (if not cheaper) than many big brand mascaras.  I mean, the answer seemed pretty obvious to me! - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - green beaver wildflower beeswax frosty mint lip balm

Well, that’s quite wordy but hey, I didn’t come up with the name. I picked up these Green Beaver lip balms a while back but didn’t get a chance to try them out until now. They were on sale. I purchased 2 of these Green Beaver lip balms for less than $4. Even though I had so many other lip balms at home, I couldn’t resist and picked them up. I mean, $4 for 2 Green Beaver lip balms?

Talk about an amazing deal!

thingsthatwedo.com - pacifica natural minerals mysterical supernatural eye shadow palette

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to go more natural with my makeup. Given that I’m prone to looking like a raccoon, it’s somewhat inevitable that I wear makeup to go to work lest I scare my colleagues senseless. My makeup used to come from a wide variety of brands usually based on price and colour. As I get older, I realized I wanted something more out of the makeup I put on my face. I wanted more natural products with ingredients that didn’t feed into my paranoid thinking.

I recently went to my local health food store and found Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette on sale for less than $15. It was a decent price especially when you consider that many big box store brands have similar prices.

Let’s just say it was my lucky day!

Well, I could leave this product review at just that but I’m sure you’d want a few details right? - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - physicians formula mascara

Yes, it’s mascara. Yes, it’s by Physician’s Formula and it also happens to be from their Organic Wear line. I posted about this product back in October 2013. I loved it back then and I still love it now. I love having an organic option available in my everyday drug store. The more available organic and natural options are, the better.

Today’s post isn’t really about the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash mascara per se. No, today is a ‘nana nana boo boo’ post. - Continue Reading

Have you seen this little doo da before?

You see, I have. I’ve seen people use it before and I used to wonder, “What is UP with that odd shape? THAT’S a lip balm? You’ve got to be kidding me.”

I may not have used those exact same words but that pretty much sums it all up. I’ve never used it, never ever got my hands on one.

Until NOW.

Welcome to the world of eos.

I like frozen yogurt and I’m sure most of us have tried the Menchies chain of frozen yogurt. Question is though: have you tried their lip balm?

I know, that sounds like an odd question. I mean, did you know Menchies made lip balm? Well, one day while I was paying for my little cup of frozen yogurt I noticed the display of lip balms and decided to pick one up to test.

Why? Well, the price was decent and surprisingly enough, the ingredients weren’t bad. So, I figured I’d pick one up and see how well it worked.

Let’s take a look, shall we?

Chapstick, lip balm, call it what you want, it’s that stuff you put on your lips to prevent them from chapping. Now, I don’t know about you but I find it incredibly difficult to find a decent lip balm. I don’t want a lip balm with questionable ingredients but I also don’t want one that will break my bank either. After all, money is hard to come by.

Now, my kid loves lemon and lime so when I found the Badger Lime Rocket Cocoa Butter Lip Balm I knew it had to be tested. Up to now, I’d never seen a lime flavoured chapstick made with decent ingredients. I’ve tested other Badger products before so I had high hopes this would be a winner and I was NOT disappointed.
