Chocolate Truffle Disks

Here is a quick and simple recipe for when a sweet tooth strikes, which let's face it, is every day.


Ingredients you most likely have on hand:

1/2 c Coconut Oil
1/4 c Cocoa Powder (OR PB2- it's a powdered peanut butter.  I haven't tried this yet, but if you do- let me know!)
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1/3 Vanilla Bean OR 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Toppings of choice- No need to measure, just sprinkle as much or as little as you like!:
Nuts
Coconut
Dried fruit
Cocoa nibs
Seeds

The possibilities are endless!  I used almonds and coconut this time for a healthy almond joy-esque treat.



Melt the coconut oil.  Add in the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla of choice.   I like to use an immersion blender to mix it, but if you don't have one of those a food processor would work.  Whisking by hand is a last resort if you must.  Blend until it's a beautiful homogenous mixture!

Pour in molds of choice (I like silicone for ease of popping out).  Sprinkle on toppings.

Let set in fridge.

Pop out and eat.

 {As you can see, they were still a little cold from being in the fridge.  I prefer to let them sit out at room temp before eating so they soften up a bit.}







I hope you enjoy this recipe and be sure to let us know if you make them!

Klurskin Skincare Review

I stumbled upon Klurskin on Instagram and I was immediately drawn to their clear, modern packaging.  I love the minimalistic look.  It just screams "clean" to me.  Klurskin kindly offered to send me some products to try and share my experience with you!

First- a little background on the brand; Klurskin is a small family business in Los Angeles.  They "believe that natural, botanical ingredients are the key to beautiful skin."










Rose & White Tea Gentle Glycolic Cleanser



This cleanser has a very light scent, not overpowering at all.  It's an outstanding makeup remover.  Just to note- I remove my mascara prior to washing my face, so I haven't tried using it to remove mascara.  My skin definitely feels clean after use, but not overly dry or tight.  Glycolic acid is used to help exfoliate and aid in cell turnover.  It is formulated for combo, oily and/or acneic skin types.  I like this cleanser, but I think their other cleanser (Gentle Hydrating Cleanser) might suit my skin better for the winter months.  For me, washing once a day (at night) with this has worked well.

It contains 100% natural and 65% organic ingredients.

Active Ingredients: Glycolic Acid 5% (AHA), Organic Salix Alba 2.8% (Salicylic Acid BHA) 
Other Ingredients: Water, Aloe Barbadensis Juice (Aloe Vera), Organic Rose Mosqueta Extract, Organic White Tea Extract, Organic Yucca Extract, Decyl Glucoside, Allantion, Glycerin. *ORGANIC INGREDIENTS


Green Tea + Chamomile Essential Nutrients Serum



This serum is formulated to relieve redness and irritation and helps with rosacea, eczema, and sensitive skin.  It's like a daily vitamin for your skin and it's very easily absorbed.  I used 3 drops for my whole face and I enjoyed the fresh scent.  I love how it adds a little moisture and extra oomph to my skincare routine.  It just feels like I'm doing something good for my face!

It contains 100% natural and 75% organic ingredients.

Ingredients: *Aloe, Distilled Water, *Green Tea, *White Tea Extract, *Chamomile Flower Extract, *Thyme, *Sage Leaf, *Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, *Lavender Oil, *Chamomile Flower Extract, *Marigold Extract, Vitamin K, Vitamin C Ester, Tocopherol Vitamin E, Coenzyme-Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Vitamin B Complex, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin. *ORGANIC INGREDIENTS


Rosemary + Willow Oil Control Serum




This gel serum is formulated to help control oil and tighten pores, so it is best for oily and acneic skin types.  It has an earthy eucalyptus scent.  I have been using it in my T-zone and as a spot treatment, and it's been working well for me.  A little goes a long way- I literally use one drop.  Keep in mind, you can use it all over your face if you have more oily skin.

It contains 100% natural and 70% organic ingredients.

 *Aloe, Distilled Water, *Willow Bark, *Rosemary Leaf Extract, *Lavender Oil, *Green Tea Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Co-Enzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C Ester, Tocopherol *(Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin. *ORGANIC INGREDIENTS


Organic Fusion Radiance Oil



The Fusion Radiance oil has a great blend of oils in it.  It's scented with Lemongrass essential oil making it an uplifting aromatherapy experience when applied.  It only takes a few drops (unless you have very dry skin), and it blends in and absorbs well.  You can also use it on your hair and nails.   Hello, multitasking!  Who doesn't need more products like that?!

It contains 100% natural and 90% organic ingredients.


Ingredients: *Squalene, *Rose-Hips Seed Oil, *Argan Oil, *Carrot Seed Oil, *Avocado Oil, *Safflower Oil, *Sea-Buckthorn, *Borage Seed Oil, Silk Amino Acids, *Marigold Extract, *Green-Tea Extract, *Cucumber Extract, *Tangerine Essential Oil, *Lemongrass Essential Oil, *Neroli Essential Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate-Vitamin E, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides. *ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
