Phlur Reviews The fragrance world is shrouded in secrecy. Ever wonder why fragrances don’t list their ingredients? Well, the FDA views fragrance formulas and scent combinations as proprietary “trade secrets”, and doesn’t require fragrance brands to list ingredients on their labels. Great for brands, but not so for us customers. This lack of transparency leaves us unable to know whether our favorite perfume contains harmful chemicals, like endocrine disrupting preservatives and phthalates used to make scents adhere to skin, lift and linger in the air. But things are about to change. A new nontoxic parfum brand is on the scene and bringing…

I was very excited when I discovered the Biologique Recherche Placenta Serum! I’m a big fan of placenta in skincare after I first discovered placenta beauty supplements and skincare a few years ago in Tokyo where it’s everywhere. I even plan on encapsulating my own placenta after my baby is born (I’m currently 39 weeks pregnant!) and ingesting it for the postpartum benefits.

Especially since there’s nothing worse than spending money on a mask that under delivers or causes a reaction. Sensitive skinned ladies you with me?! These past few months, I’ve been on a rampage testing out over forty different masks – yes, I’m just as surprised as you are my face didn’t fall off during the process – and rounded up a list below of the ones I kept reaching for again and again. Now, just a reminder that I…

Putting together a baby registry and figuring out everything we would need for our soon-to-be arriving baby girl was so overwhelming! I did not realize how many options there are for swaddles, cribs, gliding chairs and breast pumps. It’s overwhelming to say the least figuring out newborn needs. Throughout the process of putting together our registry and purchasing the items we needed, I kept oscillating back and forth between thinking – “Do I need all this stuff?!” and “OMG, I’m forgetting something our newborn needs!” But after many, many hours chatting with my experienced mommy friends, culling through Amazon reviews, watching mommy…
