Flavoured Liquid Coconut Oil by Nature's Way #review via Social Nature

I was fortunate enough to get to try this flavoured liquid coconut oil free from socialnature. Social Nature is a product sampling community focusing on natural products.

I love my coconut oil and use it daily; whether I'm putting it in a smoothie or cooking or baking with it. But, in the colder months it turns solid and being kind of lazy, I find it a pain to melt it before using it in my smoothies and recipes. So, I was quite happy to hear of a liquid coconut oil that will save me from this tedious step.

So far, I am really having fun with this coconut oil. I love that it's in liquid form so I don't have to melt it before adding it to smoothies or baking recipes. I have the Raspberry flavour and so far I have been adding it to chocolate smoothies, fruit smoothies and my weekly black bean brownie recipe. I plan on using it in a salad with some spinach and strawberries too. The possibilities are endless. I love the flavour and the convenience. Now I want to try all the flavours! It's non-Gmo too!

$1 Eye Makeup Brushes: 224, 222 and 217. Mac Dupes!?

Recently, I heard about these "Mac dupe" brushes selling on eBay and I had to check them out. At $1 a piece with FREE shipping, I felt I really couldn't go wrong. Here are the four that I purchased.  

From the top: #224 #224 #222 #217

The close up pictures above and below are after washing them two times and using them for two weeks,

My order:

Pictured above is a screenshot of my eBay purchase. 

As I mentioned, I heard that these were dupes for Mac brushes and I was in need of some pointed crease brushes. Again, not much to lose since they are $1 per brush and FREE shipping! yay!

I can't tell you how they compare to Mac brushes since I don't own any Mac ones, but I can tell you that I am LOVING these brushes! I can honestly say that I have been using these 4 brushes on the daily since I got them, and I haven't touched any of my other eye brushes since! Yes, I'm loving them that much. 

How they arrived:

They are really soft and washed well with no shedding. They also work amazingly well and blend my makeup like a dream. The handles feel like high quality IMO and each are stamped with their corresponding number. I would never guess that these are low-end brushes, let alone $1!

I ordered:
 2 x #224
1 x #222
1 x 217

I am so happy with my purchase and if I need anymore brushes I would definitely order these again or some others from this seller. Of course, only time will tell how they will hold up in the long run, but so far, so good. *Fingers crossed

Note: I've had some people on Instagram ask for a link. I will provide a link to one of the brushes from my purchase (not affiliate), but keep in mind that it may eventually expire. In that case I would recommend searching on eBay for makeup brushes with the number you are looking for eg. ``eye makeup brush 224`

All products were purchased by me and all opinions are my own.
