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…

Frozen Pineapple-Kale Smoothie



There is no need to feel guilty over ice cream when you can enjoy a fruity frozen treat. This tropical pineapple kale smoothie is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, as well as vitamin E and Calcium if you use almond milk. And it's so delicious! This green smoothie really just tastes like a pineapple smoothie, so it's an excellent way to sneak in more veggies.

Wal-Mart has recently started to carry frozen chopped kale in large bags for just over a dollar! I put in it everything - smoothies, pasta sauce, rice, soup. It has an extremely mild flavor and doesn't get a mushy texture the way spinach does, so don't be afraid to add it to your own recipes. It's all the goodness of greens without actually tasting them.

This particular smoothie doesn't have a lot of protein, so if you want to have it as a recovery smoothie post-workout, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder, like this Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Sweet Vanilla Bean.

INGREDIENTS
*serves up to two
  • one cup almond milk (or whichever milk you like)
  • half cup freshly-squeezed orange juice (about 2 large oranges)
  • one banana
  • one cup frozen pineapple
  • one cup chopped frozen kale (Fresh is fine too, but I find that the frozen kind blends very well and of course make the smoothie more cold without having to add ice.)
