KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

DIY Hot Cocoa Mix


Homemade hot cocoa mix is a great make-ahead Christmas present. You can give it as a gift all on its own, or pair it with other yummy treats. Arrange it in a gift basket with a mug and sweet treats. A canning jar is perfect for packaging edible gifts like hot cocoa mix. Use a colorful ribbon and matching ornament (preferably a flat ornament) for a festive touch. Use chalkboard canning lids to label them by flavor. You can add other things like toffee bits, candy cane crumbs or candy baking chips to the mix. You can also add in spices like cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Simply whisk the ingredients together. This recipe makes enough for 5 cups of dry mix, so make one for a friend and keep some for yourself!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • optional - 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • optional - add baking chips like butterscotch or mint to the top
