Green Beauty Round Up

I do these posts from time to time.  Often I get an accumulation of products that are standouts and instead of doing a ton of smaller posts, I just do one big post.  People seem to really like them-I’m guessing because everything is in one place.  It’s also really beneficial for the companies because they get more exposure then if I was to do them individually.  A win/win!

I’ve come across some serious green loot recently and had to share some recent faves!

Malaya Organics-

I’ve sampled Malaya before but was excited when the owner Katya Slepak reached out and sent me some of their goodies.  They have a whole new look and I was excited to see it.  The products are beautiful themselves and the new look is so chic.  I’m a big fan of their face serum, it melts right into your skin leaving a dewy finish.  It isn’t overly scented either- perfect subtle scent.  I’m also digging their Calming Botanical Bath, talk about relaxation at it’s finest!  I love a good bath and these are the perfect thing to help de-stress.  A mini spa right in your own home.  The facial steam is also a great de-stressor for not only the skin but the mind as well.  It helps to pull out toxins and gives the skin a glow.  The body oils are also luxurious.  I’m a big fan of the Woods scent.  It’s smells just like the name suggests-woodsy with a hint of citrus.  I love how the body oils feel on the skin, a truly decadent oil!  Last but not least their hair oil is perfect for giving parched hair a good drink of water.  I lightly apply it to my hair and style as usual.  For a more intense treatment I add it all over my hair and leave it on overnight.  My hair is silky and smooth the next day.  Did I mention their products are organic, biodynamic, wild crafted and ethically sourced-hello!  The products are housed in luxe glass bottles.  The whole line screams spa-a truly decadent line.  Use coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN for 15% off and snag some Malaya Organics here.

Teri Miyahira-

I was so excited when I received my first box from Teri!  Teri has her own green beauty YouTube channel and now has created a monthly subscription beauty box.  The box has become so popular that now there is a waitlist for the November box because it’s sold out!  All the makeup is vegan, and cruelty-free.  I have been loving the boxes!  The Harmony Compact Color for face and eyes has been a fave of mine.  This product is so versatile.  You can use them as eyeshadows, but also as a blush, bronzer, contour or highlight.  Such a great multi-tasker.  I’ve also been digging the pressed eyeshadow color in Strength. Goes on so smooth and stays put.  The crushed colors offer the perfect shimmer for going out, and this mama needs all the help she can get!  Oh and can we talk about her brushes- so luxe!  They are so soft and beautiful, love the rose gold.  She also has skincare products.  I loved sampling the gel cleanser and toner/mist.  I couldn’t believe how much came in each box.  This is one beauty box that is here to stay!  Grab your’s here.

Loving Naturals-

If you’ve followed me long enough, you know I’m crazy for Loving Natural’s Sunscreen for babies.  It has only a handful of stellar ingredients.  Plus, it works and keeps my babies skin protected from the sun.  It doesn’t leave that ghostly hue on the skin either like most natural sunscreens.  They recently sent me their Anti-aging cream too.  I was amazed at how moisturizing it was and how good my skin felt in the morning.  I have dry skin and even used this during the day and it wasn’t too greasy.  I love that it’s budget friendly compared to other natural anti-aging creams.  If you haven’t tried their sunscreens you’re missing out!  Check out all their products here.

Square Organics-

I love me a protein bar!  Especially since becoming a mom,  it’s often easy to skip meals because of time-can I get a witness?  I end up making a smoothie or grabbing a bar.  These ones have been perfect.  Not only are they satisfying but full of organic ingredients.  They honestly taste like a candy bar!  All of them are chocolate coated with a different flavor on the inside.  My personal favorites are the coconut and mint.  I’ve even been grabbing them mid-day for a quick snack since I’ve been nursing my 8 week old like crazy.  They have hit the spot for those sudden hunger urges.  If it’s been hard for you to find a protein bar that tastes good and has decent ingredients, then check out Square Organics- you won’t be disappointed.  Also, use coupon code: gurlgonegreen for 20% off a box!

The Simply Co.-

I love testing out new natural laundry detergents!  I’m always curious if they’ll actually work.  I’m sure I’m not alone.  Well, I have good news, The Simply Co. is some legit stuff.  With only 4 ingredients: Baking soda, washing soda, and Organic Vegan castile soap (+ Organic essential oils), this laundry powder packs a big punch. It comes in this sleek glass container-so chic looking.  You simply add one to two tablespoons to your laundry, depending on the how big the load is.  You can use it in standard machines and HE machines.  The proof is in the pudding they say and I can say that this powder successfully made my clothes smell good and clean.  Did I mention the ingredients?!  They’re also vegan, organic and cruelty-free.  I’m in awe of the power of them.  The laundry powder comes in lavender and unscented.  If you’ve been looking for a natural laundry detergent with little ingredients that gets the job done-this may be just your ticket!  The whole concept of The Simply Co. is pretty awesome too.  Founded by a blogger who wanted the most natural cleaning products.  They aim to protect the environment by creating sustainable products.  Use coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN for 10% off your purchase.  Shop here.

      Haha! I know I hadn’t really taken that much of a break in a while-but it was needed. Think I found my groove again and it feels good! P.S. You’re the best!
