Lathering Up with Eco-Truffles Bath & Body

Today I'm presenting another wonderful local company with products made in Trinidad with love. I saw a few of their ads on Facebook but meeting them one on one at the Eastern Market was indeed a pleasure and the start of my journey with their amazing products. 


Turneem Facial Cleanser
  • The name of the cleanser merges the two main ingredients of turmeric and neem.
  • Lathers well.
  • Usually three or four pumps of cleanser is enough to properly cleanse your entire face. 
  • The cleanser is gentle to the skin. I experienced no allergic reaction to it. Note: I have normal to combination skin. 
  • Skin feels clean and appears brighter after use. I had a few small dark spots and after continued use of just this cleanser I feel like they appeared lighter in appearance. 
  • The cleanser does not dry out the skin. I was previously using Clean and Clear which made my facial skin feel dry and tight whilst the turneem cleansed with a fresh feeling. 
  • My niece who is a teenager at this time also used for her acne prone skin and experienced no adverse reactions. She did indicate a brightening of the skin after a few uses. 


Handmade Soaps
  • The Vanilla Sandalwood is quite a large soap (about 6 oz). I decided to cut it into two smaller pieces with a simply kitchen knife. The cutting was quite easy and I got a clean cut with no breakage at the edges that were being cut. The soap is firm but soft enough to cut. 
  • The soap has a woody scent representative of the sandalwood. While it was a pleasant scent I feel this maybe a scent that is more appealing to men. 
  • It lathers well and does not leave a dry feeling to the skin after use. 




  • The Citrus Spice soap is also a large soap at 6 oz. It's shaped like a slice of cake since it is formed with a large round mound. 
  • It smells just like the name implies with hints of the spices and citrus. This was quite a wonderful scent to me. Actually the scent is strong enough to make my bedroom where I stored it (after opening the packaging) to be permeated with the scents of citrus and spices.
  • This soap was double sealed with clear wrapping. 
  • The soap in its form before use feels a bit soft in texture. It was softer than the Vanilla Sandalwood soap.
  • It lathers quite well in the bath but it melted quite easily so I had to store in a dry place. 

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed these three products tested and I'm looking forward to trying more out of their wide range of items. Support this local entrepreneur by visiting their Website

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
