Product Review: Só Luxury


If you’ve been here for a hot minute, you’ll know just how much I love Só Luxury products. Not only are they a female owned local small company, but their products legitimately work. Living in the Prairies, the dry air is a sensitive skinned person’s nightmare and Só Luxury is one of the only brands that I can use without reacting to. My daughters also have dry skin and patches of eczema and this is all I use on them too. I thought it would be helpful to share what Só Luxury products we use the most around here, how they work, why I love them, and why you should love them too. Please note all opinions are honest and my own.

Why Do I Bento?

IMG_20190823_184251_886000

Can we just real talk for a hot minute? I was born in the mid 1980’s and grew up in the 1990’s and I have observed something about this certain subsection of adults now that not only applies to me but almost all my similarly aged peers. We all tend to have some really disordered eating habits. The generation whose parents raised us on “no leaving the table until you finish your plate”, and “treats are BAD”, and “if you’re good you can have a cookie” – all while themselves surviving on slim fast bars and meal replacement shakes and chain smoking cigarettes.

THIS. THIS is why I bento box for myself. It’s to combat 30+ years of using food as rewards and punishments, of not listening to my body’s intuitive cues of hunger and satiety, of restricting so severely binges are inevitable, and to silence the critics in my own head.

Bento boxes make me mindful – to choose a variety of healthy(ish) options in a portion controlled size. It helps me see all my food laid out, and take the pedestal off “I deserve this treat” items. It also helps me mirror what healthy eating habits are for my kids. It’s reasonable and sustainable. Can any of you relate to this?
