Natural Beauty Bloggers Holy Grail Products No.5

Another installment for this blog series and this time I'm showcasing the holy grail products of Canadian Blogger Caitie from Naturalla Beauty.

When Sarah asked for more contributions for these Holy Grail posts, I was quick to volunteer, but once I actually sat down to pick products, I really had to mull it over! I knew I wanted items that I keep coming back to, but I also didn't want to repeat any of the favorites already mentioned by other bloggers. I finally settled on these two...

Acure Organics Unscented Cocoa Butter + CoQ10 Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion - I'm quite picky about scents, so when it comes to lotion – or anything else that gets slathered all over - I usually opt for unscented products. My favorite to date is from Acure. The ingredients are top notch and it rubs in easily and won't leave your skin feeling sticky or tacky. And, unlike a lot of other fast-absorbing lotions, it still manages to do a fantastic job moisturizing the skin. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth tube of this stuff!

Kahina Giving Beauty Facial Cleanser - I love argan oil and I have a soft spot for creamy cleansers, so it's not altogether surprising that I fell hard for this cleanser. Alongside Kahina's signature argan oil, it also contains aloe vera to keep skin hydrated, willow bark to eliminate toxins and impurities, and papaya enzymes to brighten and lightly exfoliate. It’s gentle and suitable for sensitive skin and also smells lovely, removes makeup, and has the most perfect light cream/milky consistency that I just love. Kahina is something of a luxury brand, no doubt, but before you let that deter you, keep in mind that you get a full 200ml (6.7 oz.) of product here, so ounce-for-ounce, the price ends up being comparable to a lot of mid-range brands. You also don't need to use a lot - I bought my bottle in early December and it's still got about 1/4 remaining.

I'd like to thank Caitie for taking part in this series. Acure does appear to be a very popular brand across the pond, bloggers are always complimentary about products. If only it was more accessible in the UK without the need for international shipping *sigh*. Please do pay a visit to Caitie's blog, it's one of my favourites and I know will interest many of my readers.

Tofutti Minis Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic Dairy & Soy Free

I do find Dairy free 'cheese' will divide opinion, you either love it or hate it and it does depend on the brand. One of my personal favourites is Tofutti. For me this is the dairy free substitute for Philadelphia. I like that it is available in different flavours and goes perfect on a bagel. I'm always jealous of the US because the Tofutti's range is a lot larger and goes beyond cheese.
