Working for a company that offers over 24,000 products across 17 different departments definitely has its perks. We are also given the chance to try A LOT of products so we are equipped to answer your questions and make recommendations. Sometimes a product comes along that we love and we soon discover that it has other uses that make us fall in love with it even more! Without keeping you in suspense any longer we want to share our six favourite product hacks with you.

Earth to Body Argan Oil

Just add one or two drops of argan oil to your mascara and give it a good stir. This beauty trick will keep your lashes looking great and flake-free all day long, and extend the life of your go-to mascara

BunchaFarmers Stain Stick

If you walk into any terra20 and ask a staff member what the best product is for removing stains they will all say, “Let me show you the BunchaFarmers Stain Stick.”

We discovered that for extra dirty laundry or a load of whites, you can use a grater to shave off a few flakes of this stain stick and toss them in with your laundry for some extra cleaning power or to make your whites a little bit brighter.

Paddywax Candles

If your mind went straight to homemade leg wax you’d be wrong... funny... but wrong. Paddywax hand-poured soy wax candles come in beautiful glass, enamel, or metal containers.

Once you’ve enjoyed the candle you can reuse the container for plants of all shapes and sizes. They’re perfect to display a little greenery on a shelf, desk or windowsill.

H2Only Cleaning Cloth

Some of you may already do this if you found the H2Only cleaning cloth a little too big. We recommend cutting the cloth in two so it’s a little easier to manage and it’ll last longer.

If you wear glasses, or use a tablet or smartphone often, cut one of the halves in half again and you have the perfect little cloth to clean glasses and screens. Just add water, ring out well, and enjoy streak free clarity!

Aura Cacia Grapeseed Oil

This oil is extracted from the seeds of wine grapes and contains an excellent balance of skin-supporting compounds, including oleic, linoleic, palmitic and stearic fatty acids.

This light, absorbent grape seed oil will restore balance and firmness to combination and oily skin, but we discovered it’s also great for removing makeup. Dual purpose skin care oil- we love it!
