Who wants to hear what my natural beauty faves for February are? Ok, well listen up because I’ve got the pulse. I did this in January and you guys loved it, so I’m going to do this every month! It’s hard to keep up on the latest and greatest when it comes to natural beauty products, so I’m going to do all the heavy lifting for you.
Some of these products are new releases, some of them are just new to me. So sit back, grab your drink of choice and listen in as I give you all the juicy details on my natural beauty faves for February!
Ok, so you know how the winter can turn your skin into looking dry and crepey? Basically you end up looking older because your foundation makes your skin look dry and patchy. I’ve seen it on myself and I’ve seen it on countless of people. Not a pretty look! Winter can just be downright harsh!
Well, thankfully there are foundations that not only give your skin the coverage you want but also make your skin look dewy. My skin literally glows with this foundation! I always get so many compliments when wearing this foundation. People always say my skin looks so healthy and dewy.
The texture is different than any foundation I’ve used. It’s an oily paint thinner like feel more liquid feel then creamy- I know so weird but that’s an accurate description. It offers light to medium coverage. I thought I wouldn’t like it because I didn’t think it would offer enough coverage for me, but it actually gives a good amount of coverage. I wear the color 03. If you want your skin to look dewy and moist- this is it! Grab it here!
I was SO excited to try this! I’m all about taking care of my lips. Lips are kind of a neglected area on your body. Did you know that on your lips the stratum corneum is much thinner than anywhere else on your body. Basically it’s the top layer of your skin that helps to protect your lips from the environment. Another interesting fact is your lips don’t have any any sebaceous glands. Sebaceous glands are what helps to keep your lips moisturized. So your lips literally are on their own!
That’s why it’s so important to hydrate them since they aren’t getting any additional help. In comes Fitglow Night Lip Serum. This lip serum is in a league of it’s own! I’ve tried other lip serums, but this one is hands down my favorite! I apply it on my lips at night and I wake up to the smoothest, softest and hydrated lips. It’s a clear formula that is filled with antioxidants that help with keeping your lips from looking weathered and old.
Plus, it has vegetable collagen which helps to keep the moisture intact and gives lips fullness. The plant ceramides in the formula work to hydrate at the very core of your lips which helps to repair your moisture barrier and prevent from future moisture loss. I don’t know about you but my lips need all the help they can get! Especially in the winter. I’m obsessed! Get your lip serum here!
Innersense just knows how to create exceptional hair products. The founders are stylists themselves which definitely helps. They know the hair and they know what it needs. This salt spray is their newest product and I couldn’t wait to try it! I used it once and knew it was going to be a fave.
A lot of texture or salt sprays can weigh the hair down a bit. Not this one. It gives my hair some decent hold, almost like a subtle hair spray, and then it adds texture. Not heavy texture that gets super crunchy. This is effortless texture that makes it feel like your hair just did it on it’s own.
I love spraying it in my hair to break up my curls after I curl my hair. It gives my hair a tousled look. I’m excited to travel because I don’t even think I would bring a hair spray- just this! It offers enough hold. This would work great for those with curly hair too as it would help to liven up your natural curls. SO excited to have this in the summer months! Get your I Create Waves Texture Spray here!
So winter can be brutal like we talked about. I find you almost have to baby your skin a little more. We all know we need to exfoliate, but manual exfoliants can be too harsh for winter months. Well, that’s where Ursa Major 3-in-1 Flash Mask comes in!
This mask gets you glowing in 3 minutes flat- just like the name suggests. It’s perfect for the most sensitive skin types. Worried your skin might react to a mask? This may be the one for you. Instead of using harsher manual exfoliants that can cause your skin to flare or get red, it uses enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells, this mask does in 3 minutes what some some masks take 15 or 20 to do. It looks like a gel and feels light and refreshing on the skin. The perfect gentle exfoliant for winter.
If you’re perpetually running late, this may be the mask for you! I put it on before I brush my teeth and rinse off once I’m done. The perfect amount of time to get a quick glow for the rest of the day. Get your Ursa Major Flash Mask here!
Ok, I literally just posted my True Botanical’s review last Friday, you can read about this natural skincare powerhouse here. But this mask is too good to not share again! I’ve had it in my skincare rotation now and I can’t get enough. This mask really offers some serious hydration. You cleanse your skin and apply your products as you would normally and then you apply the mask.
Instead of rinsing it off you sleep in it! When you wake up your skin is silky smooth and moisturized. Like a big gulp of water for your skin. I put down a hand towel on my pillow so the product didn’t get on my pillow case. But it really does soak in to the skin so well you hardly notice anything.
I can’t think of a better product for your skin in the dry winter months! It literally nourishes the skin so well. I notices minimized redness too and an overall hydrated look to my skin since using. Foundation looks better too! Get it here!
Beautycounter Volume & Shape Shampoo-
If you follow me you know I tried the Daily Shampoo & Conditioner by Beautycounter and it worked for my hair for 2 weeks and then I could tell something was off. My hair just wasn’t styling like normal and it kept falling flat. I knew the shampoo wasn’t going to work for my fine/thin hair. People love it though, so if you have thicker hair, it may work great for you.
So I bought the Beautycounter Volume & Shape Shampoo and Conditioner instead and let’s just say my hair loves this formula!! My hair feels bouncy, has volume, and styles great. It doesn’t feel weighed down at all. My hair feels clean but not stripped. Something that’s hard to find in green beauty.
If you have fine hair and it’s thick or thin, try this. It’s been a game changer for my hair. Plus, I love how it smells good, but doesn’t have a strong smell. Just subtle. So excited to find a clean shampoo that works so well! Get it here!
These little pads have quickly taken up residence in my skincare routine. I’ve never found anything like them in natural beauty. They are little round cotton toner pads that help to tone the skin and give your skin essential antioxidants like Vitamin C and fruit acids to help your minimize fine lines. They also contain lentil seed extract which helps to tighten pores- can I get an amen on that?!
Plus, they have algae extract which helps to brighten- um yes please! And jambu extract that helps skin that youthful, firm look. I cleanse my skin and then take one of these bad boys and swipe it all over my skin. My skin just sings a little every time I use one! I can’t get enough. Another reason I love using them is it shows me if I have leftover residue on my skin. You know, if it’s actually clean?
Sounds silly, but I find sometimes people aren’t actually cleansing their skin properly and that contributes to their skin issues, especially breakouts. If you’re not getting your skin clean, you’re going to have bacteria sitting on the top of your skin. Not the best look. Get these, trust me you will love them!
I know I talk about this nonstop- but for good reason I haven’t found anything else that works as good! Plus, this is the cheapest natural beauty mascara- I mean does it get any better? $14.99 on Amazon!
Ok, so I did try this mascara when it first came out over two years ago and I didn’t like it. It stung my eyes pretty bad and there wasn’t anything amazing about it. However, they re-did the formula and I have to say it is completely different and I LOVE it! This is hands down my favorite mascara in green beauty. I know, that says a lot but it’s true. The formula checks all the boxes.
It offers thickness, length, separation- it’s just awesome! The formula isn’t too dry or too wet and I love that I don’t have to apply 5 coats of mascara to see product on my lashes. In just two coats my lashes are instantly lengthened, thicker and have overall more volume. I’m sold! On one end of the mascara wand is a primer and the other the mascara color. I apply the primer first and then the mascara. Doesn’t smudge or flake on me either! Get it here already!
