New Pacifica Beauty Launch, Unboxing, & Giveaway Announcement!

Last week at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, CA, I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful women of Pacifica!  Such inspirational women!!

100% Vegan & cruelty free, this all natural beauty brand has been one of my favorites for quite some time.  At the Expo, Kimberli, Brook,&  Ixtla gave me their new Dream Big mascara & some other products to try out.

Their coconut facial cleansing wipes and multi-mineral BB Cream have been favorites of mine for a while, so I couldn’t wait to try out some of their other items above.  Pacifica will be launching their new haircare line at the Ulta store opening in Salinas, CA on April 8th, 2016!  In light of the new launch, they sent me some of their new products!  Here is my Pacifica Unboxing video:

Pacifica’s Devocean lipstick is in the shade Beach Goth and makes the most perfect lip stain when applied lightly!  Vamp it up by adding a few more layers of this gorgeous berry shade!

I wouldn’t say it is a matte lipstick, but I also wouldn’t say it is a sheer one, which makes it perfect for day/night longevity as well as for keeping my lips hydrated.  Next, their Dream Big adjustable wand mascara is revolutionary!! Just twist the bottom of the wand handle and you get a long wand for lengthening lashes!

OR twist it down to make the wand shrink to a shorter wand for voluminous lashes.  I am also lovinggggg the shorter wand for applying the mascara to my bottom lashes!

Pacifica’s Dream Big Mascara in it’s shortest bristle mode is amazing for getting those bottom lashes!

To sum it up, this mascara is GENIUS.  I also love the serum type formula. It makes for a smooth application, & doesn’t clump!  The bristles are firm, short, comb-like, & don’t miss a single lash! ❤ that!  When bristles are too long & bushy, it sometimes gets product on my eyelids & shadow which requires touching up. Dream Big mascara does not do that! Nice work, Pacifica!  Included in the bohemian-styled Pacifica boxes were two skincare items: Rice Bright Skin Luminizing Cleansing Paste and Quinoa Sensitive Face Wash.

I’ve been using the Glow Baby Face Scrub and Sea Foam Cleanser (shown at the top of page) over the past week and have been loving them both thus far.  The Sea Foam cleanser’s coconut scent is divine.  It’s not too sweet-smelling, which I really love.  It’s the perfect coconut aroma.  I’ll be trying out the Rice Bright & Quinoa Cleansers asap!  Which leads me to a SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t yet seen my unboxing vid!  The yummy scent of their new Coconut Power Hair Care Products smells identical to the Sea Foam face cleanser! Soooooooo yummmmmy!!!

My hair is always on the dryer side from color-treating and styling, so I’ll be sure to let you know how these products do for S.O.S. on my hair.  I am big lover of kale and use it a lot in my The Daily Vitamin smoothies!  What you eat plays a big role in hair and skin, as does what you apply to your hair and skin.  The more natural, the better! So I absolutely cannot wait to try Pacifica’s new natural Kale Shampoo & Conditioner.  It has a light sweet scent of sweet kale with lovely minty notes.

There was not one product in the unboxing that did not smell like a dream come true!  It will take me some time to try out these new products, but I will provide feedback for you as soon as I try them all out.  I hope you guys enjoyed this Spring Pacifica unboxing!  If you are interested in Pacifica products, here is my Daily Vitamin discount code:

Chocolate Coco Peanut Butter Dip | Superfood Style

Today I whipped up s’more of my Chocolate Coco Peanut Butter dip in my blender! This time I added cacao nibs to this yummy superfood recipe.  Feel free to increase the amounts of your favorite ingredients in this raw and fiber-ful dish.

This recipe has a long shelf life when stored in an airtight container, so it won’t be going bad anytime soon. This dip is great paired with fresh fruit, so delish on crackers & sandwiches, and a great healthy frosting on cakes & cupcakes.

Basically: it’s my version of healthy Nutella!  I hope you guys enjoy it!

 

Ingredients:

2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp Navitas Naturals raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw peanut butter
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
cacao nibs (also optional)

Blend all ingredients with pulse mode until desired consistency.

The Daily Vitamin’s Dr. Oz Green Juice Blendoff!

Hi loves!  The weather in LA is supposed to be amazing this weekend!  It has been feeling a lot like summer in spring here, so why not start the weekend with a uber healthy Dr. Oz green juice detox!?  Learn more about juicing in a blender in our latest The Daily Vitamin Dr. Oz Green Juice Blendoff video!   In this video we put high-end blenders to the test to see which blender could blend the best Dr. Oz green juice!

His recipe is great for boosting energy naturally and for getting super glowy skin!  I personally prefer juicing with a blender over a juicer, because I love pulp.  When using a traditional juicer, pulp gets extracted, so you miss out on all the amazing nutrients that pulp has to offer.  Also, blenders are so much easier to clean! Hehe 🙂  Please be sure to leave us any questions or comments you might have about our blendoff!  Have a beautiful and nutritious weekend, everyone! XO ~Kelle

My Mango, Hot Sauce, & Himalayan Sea Salt Salt Recipe!

One of my favorite fruits is mango with hot sauce and Himalayan sea salt.  If I need to trim down quickly, it is my go to dessert!  Not only does mango taste uber delish, but it also helps to alkalize the bod, is good for skin, and boosts the immune system (plus many, many, more reasons :)).  The hot sauce also boosts metabolism
and the sea salt provides minerals to the bodayyyy!  🙂  Cayenne pepper is also a great substitute for the hot sauce. Growing up we always put salt on our fruit so it’s just something that has stuck with me 🙂  Enjoy!!  Wishing everyone a blessed weekend!! XO ~Kelle
