Gluten free goodness for a healing celiac's gut health

Please select a reason

Beauty for me, means taking care of myself inside and out. I drink lots of water, I workout and while I try and eat properly, I sometimes skip breakfast or lunch.

Because of this, I rely on a whole food protein powder like Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein & Greens to help ensure I get not only 20g of plant based protein, but organic raw veggies such as spinach, kale, alfalfa juice, broccoli, carrots and beets.

The raw, organic protein comes from pea, sprouted brown rice, chia and a navy, lentil and garbanzo beans mix. One of the things I love about this protein is that it also contains probiotics and enzymes for my gut health and digestion. As a newly healing celiac, my gut doesn't tolerate many probiotics without issues and this is the gentlest way for me to get them without upset.

I have the vanilla flavour and I enjoy mixing it with almond milk, banana and peanut butter. This has a true vanilla taste with no earthy or 'greens' taste, which actually surprised me. I do find this a bit powdery or chalky, but adding in banana and ice really helps to smooth it out and the taste itself is really great. The benefits of using a whole food formula, that is not synthetic and that contains probiotics and enzymes far outweighs any texture issues for me.

Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein & Greens is also vegan, gluten free, dairy & soy free and non-gmo.

I've used this for years

I've used L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation for years. It's my go-to foundation when I want full coverage with a nice matte finish. I only need a small amount of this to fully cover my skin. It blends out easily and sets down nicely. This can look heavier if you...

Affordable and effective

Love this micellar water. It's so affordable but it works so well. It removes makeup easily and doesn't leave a film on my skin. No issues with irritation or breakouts either.

Such great blushes

Does not blend

This is one of the worst foundations I have ever used. I could not get this to blend out, no matter what I did. It just moved around my skin looking patchy and cakey. It just sits on top of the skin and manages to look dry and oily at...

Dermaniche Age Defying Formula

Dermaniche Age Defying Formula contains some great natural ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, neem and wheat germ although the main ingredients in this are olive and castor oil. I'm a big fan of hyaluronic acid and products that contain it. I find they really help to draw moisture into the...
