Phew, I'm glad we're at the end of July. For some that might be a bad thing, because school is right around the corner. I, on the other hand, am exactly 5/9 of the way through with my marathon summer organic chemistry course, and I can't wait to be done. I am practically having a countdown to my last day of class, August 23rd. In the mean time, I have blown through quite a few products and samples this month.

Lily Organics is a natural skincare company with a super sustainable twist. Founded in Colorado in 1986, many of the ingredients in their products are drawn directly from their own USDA Organic farm. Always open to new facial oils in my life, I was happy to try their Seven Facial Rejuvenating Oils Treatment.

I recently discovered Jurlique, an Australian brand that has been making natural concoctions for over 25 years. I have a special fondness for companies that were doing things naturally before it was a giant marketing trend, so I was super excited to try out of of their best selling products, the Rose Body Oil ($45).

Does hand soap belong on a beauty blog? I am not entirely sure, so in the interest of avoiding a five paragraph essay on a product I use only to wash my hands, I will keep this review succinct.
