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.

BEST NAIL POLISH

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.)
