Farm House Fresh

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another blog post ! Lucky you this week getting posts back to back. I am so excited to do this post as it is a product line I have tried awhile back and it doesn’t get out there much also because not much people know of it. But this is a line that can pretty much relate to everyone and to be honest its a pretty fun line.

Farm house fresh is a founded brand from its name of course, their ingredients is made from their fresh grown ingredients on the farm. This brand is a natural based skin care brand their farm house is based in the united states, 99.6% of the ingredients are healthy and fresh. Story behind the brand itself !

All About Farmhouse Fresh

Being such an interesting brand, even for the green beauty space, the story behind FarmHouse Fresh is one to hear. Like many small, indie brands, FarmHouse Fresh was created with one flagship product that went on to become the cornerstone of a full line of skin care products. Just over 10 years ago, FarmHouse Fresh launched an exfoliation trio with sea salt as the main ingredient. This exfoliation system was developed by FarmHouse Fresh founder Shannon McLinden to heal cracked heels. It was that one simple product that launched FarmHouse Fresh to almost instant success after it snagged a coveted feature on Oprah’s O-List. That achievement was just one of many with FarmHouse Fresh products scoring numerous nods from esteemed publications like Elle, Southern Living Magazine, and Redbook.

So aside from the fact that FarmHouse Fresh literally uses farm fresh ingredients, there are many things that make this brand so unique. FarmHouse Fresh princes itself on being a USA made product that specially crafts each and every one of its growing skin care line. Their message of farm life and freshness goes beyond their skin care products as evidenced by just a quick tour around their site. You’ll see that FarmHouse Fresh is dedicated to their farm and all the animals that live there.  – FarmHouseFresh 


Farm house fresh has collection of face, body, fragrance and bath products. They carry oils, exfoliates, lotions, creams, moisturisers, soaks, cleansers and much more. Farm house fresh boy oils are perfect to moisturiser the skin after a nice bath or shower, the unique formulation they have is created to lock in moisture. The oils each have a formulation of blended oils and each farm house fresh oil is 99.6% natural formulation. To achieve the best results with the oil is best to drop in a bath or just apply right after a shower. The farm house fresh lotions they have has a great formulation like aloe, shea butter that benefit the skin. They have a number of different scents like back country caramel, fresh melon, ginger sorbet and sweet cream.

The first time I ever tried this brand was back in college when I was studying spa management and this was sold in the college spa, and I personally was hooked on this brand. There products smell so good I purchased the melon scrub with vodka in it and the back country caramel lotion, that lotion was my all time favourite I must say. If you are looking for the all time organic brand that does the job and smells great this would be the one. I love how farm house fresh does their scrubs, their bourbon bubbler is infused with brown sugar and real Kentucky whiskey.

There is a watermelon basil vodkatini, which is watermelon, organic vodka and basil. This has watermelon seed oils with sugar and rice bran for a great exfoliation. The rasmopolitan which is raspberry and vodka, and sugar with rice bran oil. The raspberry extract and the vitamin E in it help hydrate the skin and the salt and sugar help lift away any dead skin cells on the skin. The brand has a great variety of products, you can look at here on their site Farmhousefreshgoods.com. I hope I had the answer to all your cleansing, exfoliating and skin needs if you would like to know more have some time to visit their site. Thank you for reading I hope you all have a great rest of our Wednesday ! Look out for Monday post which will be posted at 9am EST.

Valentines Red Lip

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another post ! Happy Wednesday I hope your Wednesday is going good so far. I am super excited because tomorrow is valentines day, I am not much into this holiday because I believe we should share our love with our loved ones everyday but I just love the fun of it so I do participate with my husband but i try not to go to crazy. But anyways I thought of valentines day and of course comes to my mind is a nice chic red lip. So i decided to do a post on the perfect red lip for us, not many might not know but there is so many shades of red so how do we know which looks best on us?

There is so many varieties of the shade of red, we all learn this in art, they all differ in hue, chroma and lightness. Very fair skin tones the best red shade to look for would be more of a pink tone red, this is because these are much of a cooler tone and would compliment your skin tone. Next would be fair skin tones the best red to go for is more of a blue to red shade this is because this can very much bring out the colour with you tone shade. Olive skin tones are more to work with a red to orange red shade, because of the undertone they have this red shade would make there lips pop ! For a dark skin tone your going to want to work with a full on red lip. More cool based tones look really good on more of a dark skin tone, rather than like a orange based red etc. More darker skin tones go with a lot of different red shades, bright shades compliment their skin tones and really make a statement.

There is a wide variety of reds out there, its best to have some fun and play around and find that red that suits you. I believe every women should have that one red lipstick that suits you, I have one and to be honest I bought it out of spite. I just pick a red lipstick from the kat von D line and I received tones of complements on it like every time I wore it out. And I came to realise that was the shade of red that suited my skin tone and the undertone. When choosing your going to want to always consider your skin undertone, and the three undertones to skin are cool this is pink, red and blueish undertones. The next is warm a yellow, peachy and golden undertones and then next to that is neutral a mix of warm and cool.

Final steps to determine your perfect red lip :

  1. Determine what your skin undertone is whether it be cool or warm.
  2. Warm reds are with warm skin and cool reds for cool skin
  3. Your going to want to match the depth of the shade to the depth of your skin !

And there you have it ! How to determine the perfect red lip for the perfect night out. Thanks for reading I hope this helps, remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all! My next post will be up this Monday.

Acne Scaring – How to diminish it!

Good afternoon everyone! and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone is having a great day so far? Here we are half way through the week already. For today blog post we will be digging into skincare and talking about a big issue for a lot of people, I’ve noticed working in the skin industry which is acne. For this post we will be looking into skin and at different segments to understand how skin works and the steps needed to diminish acne scaring.

So first things first the questions we always ask ourselves “how does acne scaring start?” and “why does it almost always leave a scar?” well now to answer these questions. There is different types of scaring their not all the same but acne scars most occur when acne occur and it is irritated before time. From picking to popping when it is not ready or it is inflamed or even when touching your face all the bacteria from you fingers get onto your skin this can lead to scaring, the best thing to do is to leave it alone and find the best products to assist your skin.

So the question now “how do I diminish my scars”, well to be honest with you all this is not going to just go over night. I can be honest again and tell you if you start with this and keep doing it you will see results, I am one to say it works I did have a few scars and now my face is pretty clear. We all know we always have dead skin cells on our skin and new skin cells are produced, and to get the cycle going and make sure we are on top of removing old skin cells the key to that is to always exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! This process removes the dead skin off your body and allows new skin cells to come, this is so important because the more you exfoliate the more overtime your pigmentation on your face will slowly but surely go. Make sure you know your skin type also this would help you determine in what exfoliate to get and also how many times a week to exfoliate and help you start a skin regimen. Keeping up this process will start shedding away those scars and your face will start glowing, and trust me your skin will thank you.

The next thing you want to keep up is your products, its not recommended to exfoliate and not apply product afterwords or even sunscreen/sunblock. When exfoliated your skin is exposed to the sun and pollution. Other ways of removing acne scars a bit of a faster way and skipping some steps for the process is more costly but someone who tried it I would recommend. The first one is having micro-dermabrasion done, this is a technique which someone is working with crystals. The top of the skin is peeled, this is a type of exfoliation on the skin which allows the skin to renew process (this treatment does not hurt lol) . I have had this treatment done more than once and given this treatment more than once I highly recommend this one. The next treatment which is great is chemical peels this is a treatment used to improve the appearance of your face, neck and even hands. So a mixture of a chemical fluid is applied to your face and this exfoliates the skin and causes the skin to soon peel off, and the new skin then comes through and is much more smoother. The next is laser skin resurfacing, its a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a laser to improve the appearance of the skin. This treatment treats minor facial flaws, by removing thin layers of the skin.

There is more medical treatments that’s can help improve the appearance of the skin, but of course I cannot go on and on. But for advice id recommend buying your favourite exfoliate and exfoliating as much as needed and following up with products and serums. That is it for Wednesday post there will be a new post up Monday, remember to comment & like even post questions I love always hearing from you all! I hope you have a great rest of your Wednesday.

Favourite Lip Products

Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday back to a whole new week, I hope everyone morning is going good so far? I noticed I haven’t been doing much make up haul or posts lately and I want to start posting more posts related to beauty for the next upcoming weeks. I decided to do a post on my current favourite lip products I am loving so far, I am so obsessed with these products I am using these four for pretty much every make up look I do. The first three I am obsessed with is from the Fenty beauty line, I am loving the glosses and lipstick. I love the texture and how it feels I first bought the shimmering rose nude loved that and had to try the diamond milk one. I was first hesitant to buying it because I honestly thought it would be like all the other clear glosses but I decided to give it a try, it was more like a last minute quick pick up purchase. But to be honest I love it as much as the fenty glow one it is pretty much the same result I love how it just looks on me. One of the things I love about the fenty beauty line is that the beauty products she makes is for all skin tones and women everywhere, and that is one thing the beauty industry needs more for women. As a women of colour one of the hard things for me when it comes to buying products especially either foundation or lip shades is that its hard for me to find ones that match or go with me perfectly. This is a brand I would continually buy from, I haven’t tried wearing it over other lip shades I usually just wear it alone.

The next product shown that I love is the Blackup gloss, I got this on sale but sadly I found out that it is not for sale on the Sephora site anymore and I am not sure if it would be back. So backup is a brand dedicated to women of colour and it was developed by women of colour and it caters to women of darker skin tones. This is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this product it does what the brand says, this gloss looks so good on me it blends in so well with my skin tone. The gloss is kind of like a clear gloss with a nude undertone it carries different under tone colours, so you can get a rose tone or a more brown tone and etc that is the best way I can explain since I cant bring it up on sephora. The gloss doesn’t come off to sticky the only issue is that when used it sometimes comes out separated from the colour so sometimes clear gloss comes out first then it coming out together.

So those are so far all and current favourite lip products am using when doing my make up. I do not want to go further in more detail with these because i just currently did a Sephora review post on my blog and I did go through these products already. But I wanted to do a separate post on what am currently loving at the moment for winter, if you haven’t tried fenty yet I recommend you do I can not find one thing I dont like. And if you are a women of colour and find it hard like me finding shades that go with your skin tone there is your brand, even if you are not of colour you can also check out the brand they have other products pretty much any one of any shade can still use. That is it for today’s post like & comment i love hearing from you all my next post will be up Wednesday at 3pm Toronto time lol, I am so happy I am finally on a posting schedule!
