Since writing about beauty, I tend to change out my skin care products about every 6 weeks because they take longer to test out. Two I’ve been delighted with is NEAL'S YARD REMEDIES Deliciously Ella Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Wash ($25/3.38oz @ us.nyrorganic.com ) and Deliciously Ella Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Moisturizer ($40/3.38oz @ us.nyrorganic.com).
Don’t the names of the products just sound good enough to eat? After being diagnosed with a rare condition called Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, Ella Woodward from deliciouslyella.com had to look seriously at everything – from what she put in her body to on her body.
Working closely with the team at NY Remedies, she created two skin care products that incorporated some of her favorite ingredients like rose, toning lime, cooling cucumber and antioxidant-rich blueberries and acai. All of which are inside her two products! Go figure.
And I really love that she put her money where her mouth is and put out a cookbook in addition to the products called Deliciously Ella Every Day ($15.63 @ amazon.com). It highlights plant-based and gluten-free meals, from breakfast to healthy eating on-the-go (including my favorite of the moment to make, smoothies) to easy weekday dinners and even simple sweets. I have a good friend who keeps her rheumatoid arthritis at bay with her diet and can’t wait to share this book with her!
