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.

Skinny Berry Crisp



This skinny berry crisp is so great to help you stay on track. It's just over 250 calories with no sugar or butter, and the fiber from the oats and berries will leave you feeling full with just one serving. It's also pretty easy, so you can have it whenever that sweet tooth strikes. I really prefer homemade and antioxidant-rich treats like this whenever I'm trying to get back into shape. It's not just some processed low-fat quick fix. It's something that will fuel my body, will keep me from feeling hungry, and will make me feel good about what I'm eating. Those things are crucial when it comes to staying motivated with a healthy eating plan. It's such a healthy dessert, you could even make it for breakfast. Add in some raw almonds or walnuts for healthy protein. *This recipe is for a single serving. Double it up to serve two, or make four servings in one regular-size pie pan!

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
