Charcoal + Rosehip Face Cleansers by Holistic Apothecary

Activated charcoal and rosehip is great for skin care. I never thought about it till now but together that would be pretty awesome! But that's not what today's review will be.

Calendula and Chamomile Face Cream for Dry Skin + Rose Water Toner for Hydration

As I venture into natural skin care, I've been looking to balance out my dehydrated oily skin and dry skin. So far I've found that my skin is best treated with separate products. It's extra work and money, but if that's what it takes then that's what I'll do. (All my combo skin people out there understand the struggle T 0T)

MoistureRose Me Soap for Soft Skin + Natural Deodorant

*this is a repost from my old blog so it will have the old watermark, but will be the only repost!

This review will consist of an awesome natural soap and natural deodorant in the MoistureRose Me scent! I'm super thrilled to share this!

Welcome to Opal Jelly!

My name is Lorina, previously blogging on April Fool Romance! I used that name for more than a handful of years and I feel that I've outgrown it, but also, I have been wanting to start over. Blogging as a hobby had become cluttered and forced with no passion but I'm revitalized and ready to share again!

Originally, I began blogging for fun and for people like me. I wanted to be the puzzle piece that didn't quite fit in with other bloggers that are conventionally beautiful. I wanted to be an example that not fitting today's standards of beauty doesn't mean you can't feel beautiful or confident. I was still learning that myself, using my blog almost to create something like a support group or safe place.
Somewhere along the way I got caught up with appearances and lost myself and my drive.

Here, I want to have a positive atmosphere for self care, self love, and healing. So I'll occasionally post a few words of encouragement, cause sometimes it's in the random moments when we need them. Other than that, my blog will consist of stuff that I want to show everyone and I'll have fun again in the personal space I've created.

I hope you enjoy my posts and I look forward to sharing with you!

Drink some water, take a breath, and take care!
Lorina xoxo
