Badger Balm Headache Soother Review

I’m talking to my sister at the moment (by the time you read this though it’ll be much later in the evening and she’ll be feeling much better) and she was saying what a terrible headache she had and how she wished I was carrying around some Badger Headache Soother as it would be a great time to try it out.

She’s never tried it before but was willing to have a go considering she’s having a bit of a migraine at the moment.

So what is Badger Headache Soother? Jump ahead for the deets!

Last night I was having my own little headache nothing major just tiny so I broke out my Badger Headache Soother and was feeling instantly relaxed and relieved.

Badger+Balm+Headache+Soother+2

Badger Headache Soother is an organic blend of virgin olive oil, beewax, peppermint, and lavender. This blend is cocktailed into a balm that you can rub onto your neck, temples, and pulse points. I stick to rubbing this on my neck, resting on my back, with my eyes closed and I’ll experience almost instant relief from my headache.

Badger+Balm+Headache+Soother+3

The balm is cooling due to the peppermint which also happens to be the dominant note so as you breath in you’ll get a cool, fresh burst of peppermint. The lavender in the blend breaks the peppermint down a fair bit and gives off the scent of a cooling, herbal blend which relaxes and soothes headaches in a flash.

An aspirin is always a good remedy for a headache but the Muse thinks Badger Headache Soother Balm performs just as good and is a whole lot healthier.

If you experience stress headaches, eye strain headaches, or just a regular old headache here and there, the Muse highly recommends trying out a tin of Badger Balm Headache Soother to relieve and refresh you!

Loves it!

Spring Greens! 5 Great Green Eye Shadows for Spring

spring

I can’t help but associate Spring with the color green. Green symbolizes rebirth somehow and the beginning of a warmer season when the new flowers begin to bloom, the grass begins to peek it’s head up from the cold melting blanket of snow, and nature begins to come alive with the warmer weather.

You should probably be prepared as Spring is right around the corner and what better way to brace yourself for the up coming season than with five great green eye shadows that are sure to help you kick off Spring!

Musings of the Day: Choose It Wisely!

musings

Oh my god how painful would it be if you could only select from one, single makeup brand? If you had to choose one single brand which would it be?

Jump ahead for the Muse’s choice!

Asking me to choose a single brand is like taking the color right out of my life. It would be too difficult to settle on just one but what if I had to? What if I had absolutely no choice and had to select from only, one single brand? Which would I choose?

Of course, I was leaning towards MAC because it has the most variety plus has a pretty nice user friendly price tag! But….I actually changed my mind quickly and decided on…..

Drum roll please!

Bobbi Brown.

I choose Bobbi because she has plenty of collections that release almost as often as MAC but with alot less fanfare so I’m not left feeling like I absolutely have to have everything released. I also feel as I get older the colors released from Bobbi Brown Collections are way more friendly and easier to use for evening or day looks.

I was thinking if I choose MAC, as cheap as it is, I’d probably end up going for heaps more money as I always want everything from their releases. Plus on top of that as I got older, if I had to settle for the one brand for life, I think that Bobbi Brown would be best as MAC would be a bit too loud for me at say 80!

So, if I had to settle on a single brand, I’d go with Bobbi Brown!

How about you?

If you had to choose only one single brand to purchase from for your entire life which would it be?

Choose wisely.
