Maui Moisture Hair Care | Nourish & Moisture Coconut Milk Collection & Strength & Anti-Breakage Agave Collection: Review
There's a new hair care brand on the market and it's called Maui Moisture! Inspired by the islands of Hawaii, the collection is hand-crafted, vegan, and packaged in eco-friendly materials. Instead of using deionized water as the base ingredient, every product in the Maui Moisture range is made with aloe vera juice (it's the first ingredient) and coconut water that condition and moisturize. I've been testing out the Nourish & Moisture Coconut Milk Collection and Strength & Anti-Breakage Agave Collection and today I want to share with my reviews. To read on, click......

The Juice Truck | My Juice Cleanse Experience

Disclaimer: The juice cleanse was offered at a discounted rate by The Juice Truck.
The Juice Truck Juice Cleanse Review
Lately I've been feeling motivated to adopt a healthier diet (call it a midyear's resolution) so I decided to endeavor on a week-long juice cleanse to help get things started. In Vancouver, the cold-pressed juice craze may have subsided since its emergence a couple years ago but there are still plenty of juiceries offering up freshly cold-pressed juices and juice cleanse deliveries. So I went ahead and chose The Juice Truck, one of the original cold-pressed juice companies in Vancouver. I opted for their 7 Day Cleanse as I'm a fairly experienced cleanser to see how things would go. I'm glad to report that I've completed the challenge and today I want to share with you my experience. This post will be focused on The Juice Truck cleanse and my experience with the cleanse and I won't be giving much background information on juice cleanses in general. So if you are juice cleanse novice, definitely do some research online to see how they can benefit you. To read on, click......
