Sharing Some Love

Every few months or so, we like to share with our loyal fans some of the other products that we love. We work with Daily Goodie Box to help share some awesome products that came to us in the mail. Part of doing our part for our fans is to recommend some products that they could use in their daily lives too.

We recently received the November Goodie Box and we have really enjoyed the products in it. Here is an idea of what we received and our honest opinion on the products in the Daily Goodie Box.

Love Grown – Kids Cereal Cups
I was super excited to try a kid’s cereal again because I never do. I was slightly disappointed by the flavor of this one. I received the sea stars flavor and it was pretty tasteless, in my opinion. I love this company and their granola products, but I was slightly less thrilled with the kids stuff.
Rise Brewing Co – Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Blood Orange
Coffee!!! How could I not love it? I was so excited about the flavor of this cold brew too. It was delicious after being chilled for a few hours in the fridge! YUM!
Ecosafe – Vitamin C Gummies
The one great thing about these vitamins is that there is no gelatin in them! This is huge for me because I cannot eat it and it is so hard for me to find gummy vitamins that do not contain it. This is huge! I would highly recommend these!
Green Goo – 100% All Natural First Aid
This stuff works wonders! I am so impressed with how well it goes on the skin and how great it made my skin feel!!!
Softer Than Brittle – Cashew
I am now hooked on this stuff! I just wanted more! It was so tasty and was so soft!
My M&M’S® – Personalized M&M’S®
We got the happy birthday ones and they were absolutely perfect!!
Eat Your Coffee – Salted Caramel Macchiato Bars
I was not a big fan of the taste or texture of this bar. It has potential to be awesome.
Choice Organics Teas – Earl Grey Tea
You can never go wrong with Early Grey! I loved this brand of tea and it is probably one of my new favorites.
All Good – SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen Lotion
I like the way that this goes on so smooth. The odor was minimal and it gave me a lot of protection overall in this Colorado sunshine.

2017: New Year, New Products

The new year will bring many changes to people’s lives and that means Passion Flower Beauty as well. We have been testing quite a few products since we opened our online store in 2014. As we go into our third year of business, we have had some ups and some downs. We have had amazing reviews and we have had some terrible reviews. We see this as a learning process, and with every new product we make and try, we have seen our company grow and change.

Many of our loyal customers do not want to see us change very  much. Not to worry, we won’t be changing too much. We will be adding some new products and making some of our older products much better. We will be introducing new eyeshadow colors and a lot more mattes for those who have asked and been so patient. We will add more sparkle. We will add new scents in lotions and build more and more stock in the ones that have become incredibly popular.

We will introduce more and more bath bombs and we have teamed up with some great companies to bring goat’s milk soaps and all-natural foundation. The West Farm Goats will deliver us some great soaps at the same great price. The RAW company will be making foundation and concealer for us as well.

Things are really looking up in the future and it is very close. Thank you for sticking with us for all of this. We are so happy to call you all our customers and friends. Check out all of our current products now at http://www.passionflowerbeauty.com

Reasons to Choose Natural Products

Your body is important so what you put in it should be just as important as what you put on it. The cosmetics industry has finally discovered that more and more women are turning to natural products. That industry alone brings in about $160 billion a year! That is a huge number and just think of how many of those women are not buying natural items. There are plenty of reasons that you should choose natural items.

One of these reasons is because your skin and body will actually take in the products that are put on them. Most doctors and scientists say that up to 60% of the products we put on our bodies ends up in our bloodstream. Lipsticks and lip glosses do get ingested into our mouths so why would we choose one that is filled with chemicals? If we stay with plant-based products, the odds of being infected with an illness because of these chemicals is much lower.

Many women have started to turn to natural products because they do not contain chemicals that have been shown to cause cancer. This is huge for a lot of women. They are also scared of how these chemicals will affect their unborn children. These are all great reasons to start using natural cosmetics and products. In the long run, isn’t it all about your body and health?

The World of Cosmetics

Why do women love to wear make-up? And why do we insist on spending so much money on them? Before I started making my own make-up, I had to buy the Too Faced or Bare Minerals brands. Did I buy them solely for the name or are the products actually really good? I do like the products, but that was before I was so concerned with what the ingredients do to my skin. After reading the ingredients, I knew I had to use better products for my skin. Even Bare Minerals has some ingredients that I do not use or agree with. That is when I discovered the world of natural and organic cosmetics.

makeup1In a recent study, done by Shine Magazine, a woman will spend over $15,000 on cosmetics in her life time. Women spend so much money on cosmetics, so why can’t we spend it on the products that we know won’t hurt our skin in the long run. I personally will apply coconut oil to my face every morning in order to keep it looking its best while other women will use creams and lotions that are full of chemicals and who knows what damage is being done internally from those. We must make a conscious effort to take care of our skin if we are going to use these products.

By checking the ingredients on your products, you can get a better idea if they are harming you or not. Never be afraid to use Google or another search engine to look up what these ingredients are made out of. You never know what you are putting on your skin or in your body unless you check.

The world of cosmetics is one that makes a huge amount of money each year. If you want to contribute to that, I suggest you choose products that are good for your skin as opposed to the ones that are not. If you ever have questions about what Passion Flower Beauty puts in our products, we are always here to answer them. Our ingredients are open and publi knowledge, we have nothing to hide 🙂

As I have gotten into the world of Goat’s Milk Soaps, people wonder why they should use them. What benefits does it have? Goat’s milk is incredibly great for people who have very sensitive skin. For those who suffer from conditions like eczema and psoriasis, this soap can truly help your skin. There are plenty of other ways that it can help your skin.

Vitamins and Minerals for you skin

Goat’s milk has been used for many years to make soaps and it has recently become very popular once again. Goat’s milk contains lactic acid when added to soap can help to remove the dead skin cells from your face and body. This also will help your skin to look and much younger. You won’t see these results overnight, but the more you use goat’s milk soap, the better it will feel.

Vitamin A is a huge ingredient in goat’s milk soap and it has been shown to have great benefits for your skin as well. Vitamin A can help your skin to repair the cells that are dying. What does this mean for you? Goat’s milk can help get rid of lines and wrinkles when it is used regularly. It is not the cure all, but it will help to make your skin look much younger. Because goat’s milk isn’t harsh on your face like water-based soaps, you will start to feel the difference immediately!

All of these reasons are just part of why you should check out our goat’s milk soaps. Not only are they made with the best,natural ingredients and essential oils, they will make your skin feel brand new in no time at all.

Why All-Natural Make-Up?

One of the first times that I decided to start my own make-up company was during a visit to a mall in Florida. (I think it was Florida.) I was with my friend Marcelle. We ended up shopping for make-up and the all-natural brand that I decided on pretty much broke my bank. I couldn’t believe that I had spent $100 on four different eye shadow colors. That is when I said “I can figure this out and do it myself.” A few months later, I opened this company. Passion Flower Beauty is for my lovely ladies who want to have all-natural make-up at the affordable price. If I can wear it, and I am allergic to everything, any of you can. I put my heart and soul into making this product and I want all of my amazing ladies to know that. That is why I started this blog for my website. Each entry will give you a little bit more about me, these products, and other natural ways that you can show others just how beautiful you are inside and out. Thanks for taking the time to read this. It means the world to me.
