This year, we are just filling Christmas stockings for each other. Actually, it’s what we’ve been doing for quite a few years. Instead, we donate money to The Huron Carole which helps the food banks across Canada.

Filling Christmas stockings with little useful gifts is way more fun anyways! And next to chocolate, eos lip balms have been a regular stocking stuffer ever since they’ve been around in Canada.

This year there are two new eos Limited Edition Holiday packs, and each one has some new flavours too!

eos Lip Balms are 100% natural and 95% organic, and in case you never noticed, the formulas don’t contain water and are sugar-free too. I like that a lot! It means they contain more of the good stuff, like antioxidant-rich vitamin E, moisturizing shea butter, and jojoba oil. There’s no petroleum in eos lip balms either. Instead they use organic beeswax, olive oil and coconut oil. In fact, eos is the largest user of organic beeswax in the world and they buy enough coconut oil a year to fill the two large water tanks at the Toronto CN Tower! That’s a lot of oil you guys!

eos Limited Edition Organic Holiday 2-pack: Winterberry and Vanilla Bean ( $7.49 to $8.99)

This great little two-pack has the flavours Vanilla Bean and Winterberry. Both are equally yummy smelling, but my personal fave is Vanilla Bean! The scent is so warm and comforting and not fake smelling at all. I might just have to keep this one for myself… 😀

eos Limited Edition Holiday 3-pack: New Visibly Soft Honey Apple, NEW organic Wildberry and Passion Fruit ($10.99 to $16.99)

This pack is an awesome deal and has three festive scents. The striped pink sphere is the eos Visibly Soft Lip Balm in Honey Apple and it’s so good! The Visibly Soft formula leaves your lips instantly smoother looking. It’s one of my fave lip balms to use before using a matte lipstick. Of course the Wildberry and Passion Fruit are amazing as well. To be honest I don’t think I’ve ever come across a flavour of eos Lip Balm I didn’t like. My love for them is well documented here on the blog!

Now, sure you can stick one of these new eos Limited Edition Holiday Packs in a stocking as is-they’re cute and come in festive packaging. But you could split up the packages depending on how many stockings you have to fill. That’s what so nice about eos lip balms! Either way, you’ll still see a huge smile on Christmas morning! And there’s nothing more important than that!

You can find these eos Limited Edition Holiday packs at Loblaws, Uniprix, London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart and other mass retailers across Canada. Visit http://evolutionofsmooth.ca/ to find out more!

I don’t even know where to start with this blog post?! It’s not often that I’m blown away by something that my mind gets so jumbled up and honestly? All that I want to type right now is:

BUY THIS. BUY IT ALL. BUY. IT.

Let’s start with Tova Langhans, the creator of  T•LANGHANS Eco~Luxury Body Care, and my new favourite person in the beauty world. And I want her beautiful lips.

Tova Langhans

Tova Langhans

Tova started her business making handmade Castille Soaps out of just 5 ingredients. Her philosophy is, “Use only what’s natural and what’s necessary to make an exceptional product”. And WOW, I’m telling you everything she makes is exceptional. #fanforLIFE

T•LANGHANS CARES.jpg

T•LANGHANS CARES Box

Now, you can find these exceptional products in spas and hotels across Canada, but Tova’s products cause such a stir when someone tries them, that she has launched a subscription box called T•LANGHANS CARES, or the T•L•C Box. 😀  Tova has designed the T•L•C Box to give members the ultimate bathing experience from head to toe.

  • T•L•C only contains full size products made by Tova
  • It is delivered quarterly
  • 9% of the proceeds go to a cause chosen by the T•L•C Community-SickKids is this quarter’s cause
  • T•L•C Members have the option of being part of her Focus Group where they can suggest new products they’d like to see developed (LIP BALM TOVA PLEASE) and also receive samples before they go to market

Each T•L•C Box has a retail value of $225, but with the T•L•C Subscription it’s only  $148 +  Free Shipping. I’m freakin’ signing up ASAP. Each box contains a Cleansing Hair Conditioner, Castile Shower Gel, Sugar Polish, Liquid Castile Hand Soap, Hand & Body Cream, Cuticle Oil, and a Hotel Soap Collection of 4 Castile Bars. And as time goes on, I’m sure Tova will add products she develops as well for members to try. LIP BALM TOVA PLEASE. #hahaha #ImABrat

T•LANGHANS Cleansing Hair Conditioner

T•LANGHANS Cleansing Hair Conditioner

When I say this is the BEST Cleansing Hair Conditioner I’ve tried, I mean it’s the BEST Cleansing Hair Conditioner I’ve tried. HOLY GEEZE my hair loves this stuff. Tova promised me that it wouldn’t strip my rainbow hair colour and to be honest, I’ve heard THAT a million times before so I wasn’t gonna hold her to that promise. But this is the first time someone telling me that actually was truth. No pink going down the shower drain after 5 days now. In fact, the pink in my hair looks brighter?!! What kind of witchcraftery is this stuff? Virgin Coconut Oil my friends, that’s what it’s all about. This is a true Cleanisng Conditioner, and has no foaming action at all. My grey, coloured, curly hair loves this stuff so much! And what is so refreshing is that Tova tells you that every once in awhile, you should use a clarifying treatment. You just need to figure out how often your hair needs to have a clarifying treatment between washes-the oilier your hair, the sooner you’ll probably have to use another shampoo. Tova’s family uses Live Clean Shampoos in between, and HELLLOOOOoooo to my other fave hair brand! That’s a big endorsement right there for me coming from Tova! Me and my curly hair can go for a good week before needing to use a Live Clean Shampoo, but it all depends on how much Zumba I do and how much I sweat. Like Tova says-it’s all up to you and what your scalp and hair need to feel good. All I know is that my hair has never looked so bright, so frizz-free, and feel so CLEAN too. Awesome stuff! And if you want to just try this product, it’s on sale right now. #hurryHURRY

T•LANGHANS LIQUID CASTILE SHOWER GEL

T•LANGHANS LIQUID CASTILE SHOWER GEL.jpg

T•LANGHANS LIQUID CASTILE SHOWER GEL

With the same ingredients as the Handmade Castille soaps, this shower gel is so gentle and leaves your skin clean-almost squeaky clean, yet somehow soft. And it smells so GOOD too-the one I have is lavender and it’s so nice and soothing. I see Tova has a Bergamot one, and you all know I’m a self-proclaimed Bergamot whore, so Imma’ gonna’ need that one!

T•LANGHANS SUGAR POLISH

T•LANGHANS SUGAR POLISH.jpg

T•LANGHANS SUGAR POLISH

WOW. Just WOW. I’m in love with this stuff. Sugar, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Virgin Olive Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Honey, Essential Oils-all of that good stuff just leaves your skin so smooth and soft! And you don’t need a moisturizer after either, which this hot and flashy menopausal lady is so ever thankful for! Sometimes all it takes is a heavy moisturizer and BOOM HOT FLASH. If I can use something like this in the shower to moisturize so that I don’t hot flash? I’m all for it. And this stuff is IT.

The HÔTEL Collection Castille Soaps

The HÔTEL Collection Castille Soaps

Patchouli, Lemongrass, Vanilla, Frankincense & Myr-AHHHHHHhhhhhhh it’s like soap heaven you guys! The main ingredients are Virgin Olive Oil and Goat’s milk so you know these are moisturizing. They’re so smooth and soft and melty, and lather up like nobody’s business. LOVE. My hubby Terry especially loves these soaps-they leave you feeling so clean it’s amazing.

LIQUID CASTILE AND HAND & BODY CREAM and LIQUID SOAP

 photo SAM_3467.jpg

The liquid hand soap is amazing and Marky’s poor eczemic hands adore it. I’m going to have to make sure she takes some with her when we drive her back to dry and hot California. But the body cream HOOWEE so good. SO so SO good. The musky-lemony smell is everything, and I can’t stop feeling how soft my arms are right now.

T•LANGHANS Cuticle Oil

T•LANGHANS Cuticle Oil

No secret that I don’t really take care of my nails what-so-ever. But this cuticle oil is divine, and makes my gnarly cuticles look NICE. And that’s something right there you guys. Get it. T•LANGHANS Cuticle oil softens and nourishes your cuticles using a special blend of Sunflower Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Black Pepper Oil, Blood Orange Oil, Lavender Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Rosemary Oil and Vitamin E Oil. Oh, and if you just want to order this, it’s only $16 for the full size. WHAT.

T•LANGHANS CARES Box.jpg

T•LANGHANS CARES Box

Again, you get ALL of these products in the T•LANGHANS CARES Box, and ALL of them are FULL SIZES. No samples at all people. Nope. Everything is luxurious and fresh-in fact Tova told me that she was going to make a fresh batch of Cleansing Conditioner before my box was sent to me! My skin and hair feel amazing this week, and it’s because I’ve been testing these products and I adore each and every one of them. They are so good that I’m hemming and hawing at having to make a break from using them to have to test other crap  products out.  😛

Order your T•LANGHANS CARES Box HERE . It’ll be the best decision you’ve made in ages. And get ready for the best showers you’ve ever had! If you want to be a founding member of this amazing subscription box service, then know that founding Members receive a FREE 500ml Cleansing Hair Conditioner in every box. But you need to subscribe by August 1st to be a founding member so hurry! Oh, and hey, if you live in the USA, you can order as well as they will ship down south too.

Live Clean Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner

 

Live Clean Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner re-nourishes, replenishes, restores-the three Rs of Argan Oil! Argan Oil of course is rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamin E.  Live Clean Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner are enriched with 100% pure Argan Oil, Certified Organic Grape Seed and Olive Oil to add shine, long term conditioning and smoothing without weighing your hair down at all. If you have frizzy hair like me, then this shampoo will change your life I swear. Why? Well, Live Clean Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner don’t contain silicone which has traditionally been the mainstay in all smoothing, de-frizzing and shining hair products. Your hair will be SO much healthier, I promise. And this new bigger and better 750 ml size is fantastic. The pump makes me so happy too!

In cleansing and body moisturizing products, such as Live Clean Argan Oil Replenishing Body Wash, Liquid Hand Soap and Replenishing Body Lotion, Argan Oil is both nourishing and deeply moisturizing.  And Live Clean’s Body Washes are AMAZING. As is their hand soaps and moisturizer too. I don’t even bother buying any other hand soaps anymore. Why would I?
