Product Review: Modern Hippie Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Mask with Green Tea Extract & Bentonite Clay


I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September already. Truth to be told, I’m one of those people who actually enjoys Fall. Maybe it’s the fresh start, or the cool crisp air, colourful leaves on the ground, and sunny afternoons… but it reminds me of when my own school days.

And now, my eldest is in full-day school… so every morning and afternoon, I get to walk with him to school and enjoy the beauty that is Fall.

Speaking of fresh starts, Modern Hippie sent me the Charcoal Face Mask with Green Tea Extract and Bentonite Clay to try! (more…)

Product Review: Modern Hippie Hydrating Facial Toner – Rose & Lavender

MH Facial Spray
It’s been super muggy and hot in Vancouver, with the forest fires and the heatwave that we’re having — it can be quite a struggle to keep cool. Having lived in Edmonton, I’m used to the hot summers there. Usually in the evenings there’s some rain or a thunderstorm to cool down. This year there hasn’t been much precipitation, so it’s definitely been a dry summer in the Lower Mainland.

I’ve been trying to keep myself and the kids cool by running the air conditioner, drinking lots of iced berry water, eating cold ramen, and spraying my face with this refreshing Hydrating Facial Toner from Modern Hippie.

This soothing face mist smells faintly of rose and lavender, which are both scents that I love. What’s great about this toner is that I can use it not only to freshen up, especially after yoga, but I can use it to set my makeup as well.

The Hydrating Facial Toner is a blend of rose water, witch hazel which is a natural astringent, and rose geranium and lavender essential oils. And as usual, Modern Hippie uses safe and sustainable all-natural ingredients, free of chemicals or artificial fragrances.

Product Review: Modern Hippie Exfoliating Sugar Scrub

MH Sugar Scrub The sun’s been out for most of July in Vancouver (yay!), which means I’ve been wearing lots of short-sleeved tops and dresses and skirts. But what this really means is that I’ve been taking more yoga classes and being barefoot.

Now I don’t know about you, but I cringe when I see feet that are calloused and flaky — ugh, yuck! Luckily for me, Modern Hippie sent some Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, made with all-natural sugar (rather than those plastic microbeads) and a blend of essential oils… plus the grapefruit scent smells amazing!
