CLEAN BEAUTY Makeup Product Reviews

Art of Organics July Discovery: Illuminate

It’s here, the Art of Organics July Discovery: Illuminate!  I’m beyond excited for this box!!  Sometimes you just get a beauty box and it checks all the boxes- this one did just that.  We are seeing Leahlani’s Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir in this box, plus Au Naturale’s Powder Highlighter.   I’ve loved getting to sample these two products!

If you aren’t familiar with Art of Organics and this green beauty box, then keep reading as I explain why this box is one to get a hold of.  Their belief is really simple-You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for beauty.  I couldn’t agree more!  Their goal is to bring people the cleanest, best, and most luxurious products.  Claire the founder, has always been a beauty junkie and on the quest to purge her own makeup bag, she realized she wanted to share her journey with others and raise awareness.  I noticed instantly after opening the box, the attention to detail.  They name their boxes each month as well as follow a theme.  The card inside describes the products in the box so well and gave directions for application.  The box is $38, with a value of $70+ and features each month 2-4 full size products.  They have high standards for their product selection, such as being cruelty free, organic and non-toxic.  They have more specifics on the ingredients they don’t use here on their website.

Ok, on to the review…

Leahlani Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir-

I’m a huge fan of Leahlani’s products.  I had a feeling this was going to be a good one the minute I tested it on my hand.  Then as I inhaled the warming Hawaiian scent.  It took me away to Kaui where Leahlani’s creations are made by hand with some serious love.  This is meant to be a morning elixir before you apply your makeup, sunscreen or any oil/lotion.  It really enhances your skin- whatever way you use it.  Made with a balance of squalene oil, mangosteen, goji berry, guava and passionfruit oils.  I love how Leahlani describes the scent, “She smells of jasmine flowers and tropical rain showers.”  I couldn’t have said it better.  It leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated- not greasy.  I applied it before my makeup and loved the way it made my skin feel.  It smoothed cracks and made everything appear brighter.  I would apply it to slightly damp skin after misting it with a toner.  It really hydrates, primes your skin and gives you an all over glow.  I’m hooked!  Another Leahlani win in my book!  If you haven’t used any Leahlani products, be sure to checkout my review on her line here.  Her products are some of the very best in green beauty and really do perform.  The product I would recommend you start with is her Mermaid Mask- you’ll be in love after one use!

Au Naturale Powder Highlighter-

So fun to see a makeup product in the box this month- nice change of pace!  I’ve used a handful of Au Naturale products, but not their powdered highlighter.  This is perfect for summer weather!  Especially when it can get hot and humid quick.  This won’t be sliding off the skin.  The color is in Begonia- a pretty pearlized hue with a touch of peachy pink tones in it.  I loved applying this on my upper cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, middle of eyebrows, and middle of chin.  It looks so natural and gives me a glow without it looking like I’m trying…you know what I mean! It comes in a handy pump bottle- great for applying on your brush and then applying to the skin.  I’ll be wearing this all summer!

I would hop on this month’s box soon if you’re thinking about snagging one.  If you haven’t signed up for Art of Organics box you can sign up here!  Don’t miss out on this fabulous green beauty box!  Not only do you get quality products each month but for a steal. You pay $39 each month and get access to some stellar products.  You can sign up for 3 months, 6 months and 12 months!  At 6 and 12 months you start saving.  Also, each month a theme is chosen around the box.
