Well…..I have found my all time favorite cream I am yet to use. The main reason its my favorite is the smell is just amazing. So good in fact that I find myself putting on probably too much so that I can rub it in and keep inhaling the delicious aroma.
What does it smell like? To me, it smells like buttercream icing! Slightly sweet with a hint of marzipan. If any of you can already tell, I am really guided by what smells good. I have used some creams that don’t have the best fragrance and I tend not to think too much about them. I love love love naughty food like cakes and chocolate so if anything smells like that and I can use it on my face and body then I am all for it.
I have recently been on a 100% Raw food diet for the past three days and to use a Raw skincare cream just makes perfect sense to me. I am nourishing and healing myself from the inside out and applying and nourishing and healing cream on the surface of my skin.
Live Native are pretty much proving to be my favorite brand at the moment because I just love what they stand for. Organic, LIVE skincare. Nothing has been ‘cooked’ and all the nutrients are still very powerful.
Every Body Every day cream is exactly that, a cream for anybody and to be used anywhere. I was sent the 10g pot and I have already used it but they do sell a big size (120mls) so I will be ordering myself that next week and will get stuck into it. And yes, I have tried to taste this cream! It is raw and food grade after all. But sadly, it does not taste good!
Live Native pride themselves on being a range that is ‘enzymatically active’ and made with ‘Raw Blending’. They describe the process and reasons below:
‘When we heat any living substance in order to cook, pasteurise or process (particularly when it is intended for mass consumption), we are in effect altering or destroying its living components. To cook is to alter the molecular structure. Vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates and enzymes are all affected by heat. Cooking (in excess of 47.7°C) destroys these vital life enhancing components.
What does ‘enzymatically active’ mean? We apply the phrase ‘enzymatically active’ primarily to our base ingredients – coconut oil and aloe vera. They are raw and organic, unpolluted and enzymatically intact. We use fresh hand-filleted aloe which is cold-pressed and unpasturised like our coconut oil, and the shea butter we use comes crude and unrefined. Once ‘raw-blended’ together, Live Native moisturisers provide a clean and readily absorbing source of food for the cells in your skin – a healthy recipe – rich with enzymes, nutrients and the energy to cleanse, repair and build new collagen whilst protecting against everyday environmental stress.
What do we mean by ‘raw’ ingredients? By ‘raw’ we mean: as it occurs in nature – unpasturised, unprocessed and unpolluted. It can be an ingredient, a food or even a substance that is neither tampered with nor tainted by the nutrient depleting methods employed too commonly in the production of today’s popular foods and cosmetics.
And ‘raw-blending’? ‘Raw blending’ is all to do with retaining as much of the inherent energetic integrity, vitality and enzymatic life of every raw ingredient we use in our product. It is a cold blending process, which we have coined to emphasise that we do not wish to degrade or deplete nature’s store of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides, essential fatty acids and enzymes found living in all of our ingredients. We will not cook away what nature has so effectively provided.’
Eating Raw food and using Raw Skincare makes so much sense.
We all tend to just try and fix up the surface of ourselves, using makeup & buying creams that really don’t do too much if you have something going on inside that isn’t quite right. I know that is true for me. And others I see around me too. In fact, the only people I ever look at and think WOW you have that glow are Raw food eaters. Most people think the diet is extreme and a bit nutty but I think more and more proof will emerge (well it already has it just has to be believed by lots more people) that this is the only way to eat. Because let’s face it, the way we have been eating in the last 50 years is the EXACT reason why we are getting sick and dying way too early from food related problems.
I urge people to look into the Raw food lifestyle (not a diet a lifestyle!) it makes so much sense and it actually involves eating lots and lots of food which includes not only fruits,vegetables, nuts and seeds, sprouts but also cakes, biscuits and breads! Yes you heard correctly!
Raw food does not mean no food – there are some incredible recipes that taste even better than cooked foods. And there is no need to feel guilty as every single ingredient is so important for being healthy.
LIve Native is exactly like that as well, every single ingredient has been specially blended to give your skin exactly what it needs.
I cannot wait to get my new 120ml pot of Every Body Every Day cream – I wonder how long it will last me this time?……….
