I’ve recently been on a bit of a kick to reduce the amount of harmful and unnecessary toxins that have innocuously made their way into my life, beauty or otherwise. Albeit, being a skincare junkie who is constantly experimenting with different products and lines out there, I do not have the willpower to go completely organic and natural when it comes to makeup and beauty. I do however get really excited at the opportunity to try products that are! I originally came across the Good On Ya skincare line through one of my first beauty interviews with my friend, Alison Halleran. She spoke so highly of this 100% natural, east-coast, Canadian, mother-daughter run labour of love, that I had to give them a try.
Since Good On Ya products are handmade in small batches, I patiently waited for their fall product line to launch to ensure there was full stock of everything I might want. I quite literally salivated at the sight of every single item. I suppressed my urge to order everything I set my eyes on, and exercised self control by only ordering the Charcoal Detox Mask, Atlantic Kelp Hydrating Mask, Mint Lip Balm, and Bare Lip Balm. Self contol/schmelf control, I will be ordering more.
