Hello, friends! Today I am so excited to share my winter go-to, my favorite body mousse from Beauty Barlour. Winter is the worst time of year for skin, especially if you live somewhere where you get a lot of snow like here in Michigan. It’s always a struggle for me to find something that works great, smells good, and is good for my skin. I found Beauty Barlour and I’ve been over the moon excited!
Beauty Barlour is a vegan, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free brand in Canada. All of the products are handmade and packaged in violet jars that are super fun to repurpose. A little about the name, “By coupling the ready-to-scoop convenience of an ice-cream PARLOUR with the customization aspect of a BAR, we curate a toxic-free, skin food parlour to feed your skin’s wellness needs.” (from their website here).
There are 5 different mousses made with Do Terra essential oils. The mousse has a lightweight texture and melts into a rich oil (it’s a little bit of heaven on earth). I love the scent and how rich and moisturizing it is. A little bit goes a long way since it does melt into an oil, so start with a tiny bit. I love having a scent for different moods and different times of the day, for example, the orange is perfect for energizing and waking me up in the morning and the lavender helps me wind down and get ready for bed. There are also different scents for different doshas which I will explain below. Here are the ingredients from the website:
C L E A N I N G R E D I E N T S |
• Wild-grown shea butter (direct trade from Ghana)
• Organic, cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil
• Organic, unrefined, cold-pressed sweet almond oil
• Organically grown cocoa butter (direct trade from Ghana)
• Gluten-free, vegan-certified, full spectrum Vitamin E
• GMO-free, organic, centrifuge extracted Himalayan Seabuckthorn fruit flesh oil
• Do Terra essential oil
These ingredients have SO many benefits that I never knew about, like the UV protection from sweet almond oil and the natural SPF in shea butter. Beauty Barlour never uses petroleum based products, water, PEG compounds, parabens, fragrances, synthetics, dyes or animals products.
So another thing that is super interesting about Beauty Barlour is that they’re an Ayurvedic skincare company, Ayurveda is based on the balance of the mind, body, and spirit. Basically, there are three doshas and when our doshas are in balance we experience wellness, vitality, ease, strength, flexibility & emotional well-being. The three doshas are vata, pitta, and kapha, you can read more about this and get self-care tips on their website here.
Beauty Barlour uses violet glass jars because they are better for us and the environment. The jars also protect the mousse from light which can damage it. I am doing a video soon on how fun it is to repurpose and recycle the jars so look for that soon!
Vegan, ethical, sustainable, I can’t think of a person these wouldn’t be absolutely perfect for, they even have a Naked choice which is scentless for those sensitive to that sort of thing. You can shop Beauty Barlour here. Use code TOREY15 for 15% OFF! xo
