The KCL Beauty Edit

Welcome to another KCL Beauty Edit! I've really loved so many of the beauty and makeup products I tried last month. There is usually at least one dud in the bunch that I reluctantly have to give a bad review, but I have something good to say about each one of these products. A few of them I very highly recommend, so grab a cup of coffee and check it all out. If you have a question about any of the products mentioned, please leave it below in the comments section. And if you don't have time to read this, you can skip ahead and listen to my video review here while you work or whatever. Enjoy!


The new skincare line I tried last month was from LHB Natural Skincare, which included a facial wash and two different facial serums. I recently posted about LHB in an anti-aging skincare routine blog and video to show how I use each of these products. Of course I started with the facial wash, which I really loved. The LHB Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash is great for any skin type…

Strawberry Banana Feel-Good Smoothie


I typically feature vegetarian main courses and side dishes for my Meatless Mondays, but I'm assuming most of you overindulged on chicken wings, cheese dip, and beer during the super bowl last night. You probably need a light pick-me-up. This banana strawberry smoothie is packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune boosting nutrients that will get your body back on track. And it's easy. You don't need chia seeds or anything else from the health food store to make this feel-good smoothie.

Ingredients
*makes 2 servings

2 very ripe bananas (slice and freeze overnight or a few hours before)

8 medium ripe strawberries

2 cups raw fresh kale

juice of 3 oranges

1 cup low-fat milk or dairy-free alternative like soy milk (I like mine pretty runny. For a thicker, creamier smoothie, use plain yogurt instead of milk.)

Slice and freeze bananas a few hours before or overnight. This is my trick for making a sweet smoothie without having to use sweeteners. By using very ripe frozen fruit, you get the natural sweetness from the fruit without watering it down with ice.

Add all ingredients into your blender and pulse on high for about a minute. Enjoy!
