Hello readers,
Today I have Girly Bits Cosmetics' contribution to Polish Pickup's September release to share with you. This month's collection is inspired by fall foliage.

The Green Beaver Company Deodorant Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a couple items from The Green Beaver Company to share with you. The Green Beaver Co. is a Canadian brand specializing in natural products that are good for you and good for the planet. Most of their items are vegan as well, with their local beeswax based lip balms being the exception. This is my first time trying anything from this brand though I have heard of them before. I'm looking forward to trying out some new natural options.
