Spring picks for a healthy No-Sugar-Vember

Spring Flowers - Yellow TulipsSpring weather being its usual unpredictable self in Melbourne, our skin is confused, our energy levels fluctuating and for the less fortunate of us, allergies have struck.

We like to reach for a few favourites in times like these – you might like to try them too if you haven’t already?

Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Masque for Sensitive SkinWeleda Almond Soothing Facial Masque: we will be bringing you a review for this soothing miracle very soon – in the meantime, trust us when we say it’s the answer to our erratic mid-season skin woes… The masque is fragrance-free and will balance the most sensitive skin, giving it lasting softness.

Burt's Bees Essential Body Kit
Burt’s Bees Essential Body Kit: a newby in the Echolife catalogue, the Essential Body Kit is perfect to pamper head to toe. You’ll be able to pay special attention to your extremities with replenishing hand and feet creams (it’s never too early to prepare your hands and tootsies for summer!), and soothe your lips with the tingly and nourishing beeswax lip balm. We’re already hooked.

Blackmores Bio C ChewableBlackmores Bio C Chewables: we like to boost our vitamin C intake each change of season, particularly when pollen and allergens are in the air. Our body’s transition into warmer weather is that much easier we reckon. Funny face expressions while chewing a tart vitamin C tablet also add a bit of comedy to anyone’s morning!

Wonder Foods Organic Stevia Powder 25g

Wonder Foods Organic Stevia: stevia will be coming especially handy this month since we’ve decided to reduce our sugar consumption – that’s right No-Sugar-Vember, we’re on board! Also known as ‘Sweet Leaf’, stevia is a great alternative to refined sugar – it’s many times sweeter and has hardly any impact on blood sugar levels. Wonder Foods Stevia is enriched with chromium, and can be used in drinks, sprinkled where sugar would normally be used – even in baking! Perfect right?

To celebrate No-Sugar-Vember, we’re giving away 3 jars of Wonder Foods Stevia – head over to Facebook to enter!

Do you have any favourites you reach for to transition into spring?

    1. I’m not a native Aussie – I’m a French expat – so it also blows my mind this opposite season deal πŸ˜‰ Funnily enough, Christmas always sneaks up on me because it is not supposed to be so *hot* in December!!
