Sharing my clean beauty faves for June on the blog! I've got some new skincare faves that are safe for pregnancy, a new natural shampoo I can't stop using, a staple deodorant that is keeping me smelling fresh and so much more. Keep reading to check out all the goodness!
This is Odacite's newest product and I was so jazzed to try it! It's like a micellar water but even more effective. It was created to make cleansing super easy and effective. It's a no rinse cleanser. So you apply some on a cotton round, wipe all over face to clean and that's it. For me personally I like to use it as a second cleanse and tone. So essentially after I cleanse my skin I love wiping my skin with this cleansing water. It acts not only as a second cleanse but also my toner and mist.
It really makes my skin feel extra clean especially with the extra heat as the summer months come. It is filled with Ayurvedic herbs like Holy Basil, Neem, and Tumeric. I LOVE it particularly in the mornings. I don't wash my face with a heavy duty cleanser in the mornings but I love to get the night grime off and wake it up with a toner. This is perfect! It wakes my skin up but also makes it feel clean and ready for the day. Definitely a unique product for clean beauty! Get it here!
I know it might seem weird to put a baby oil in here but I couldn't not! It's been hard to find a clean baby oil that would be safe for my whole body and growing belly as I'm pregnant but I found one. Primally Pure's Baby Oil is not only safe for moms to be but also for baby! I rub this all over my body after showering and my belly too. I love knowing what I'm putting on my body is safe and that I'm helping prevent the beloved stretch marks from forming.
Plus, it's in glass which I love! I always get weirded out when oils are in plastic containers. It makes me think they're soaking up all the plastics! They also have a baby balm too that I rub on my belly as well. Check out the baby oil here!
This has changed my life- no joke. I did a whole IGTV video all about it here. You know how self tanners take a good 4-6 hours to process? I mean who has time for that right?! With this new tinted mineral sunscreen it literally acts like a self tanner and sunscreen in one. You apply it to your skin just like you would sunscreen. But get this…it's tinted so you not only see exactly where you are applying it but also get a tan in seconds. Plus, it gives you sun protection of SPF 30. Best of the both worlds!
I've been applying this to my face as foundation and can't get enough. I look like I have a nice glow and I've got my face protected from the sun. I'm addicted! If you haven't snagged a bottle- do it here!
Whoah…this shampoo is unlike anything I've used. First it comes in a round jar- not a bottle. I didn't even realize it was shampoo at first but then I read the label and was very intrigued. Of course I had to get it! It's not even a liquid in texture but feels more like a facial exfoliant in texture. It has tiny pink Himalayan salt crystals in it too. Plus, it has cold-pressed moringa oil, and rose hip oil. I literally just thought how it this going to clean my hair?
But it did! And so well. You want to make sure your hair is completely damp and then apply some of the product onto hair and massage in. It forms a great lather. Your hair and scalp feels squeaky clean afterwards. It smells minty fresh with peppermint, orange and geranium. I love it! It really is such a revolutionary product. Plus, how awesome for travel?! You wouldn't even have to put it in your checked bag. Just throw it in your carryon. Get it here!
So the sun is out, which also means the sweat comes! Warm sunny days are awesome but smelling is not. I finally found a deodorant that I absolutely am crazy about, and guess what?! So is my hubs!
Primally Pure Deodorants take the cake when it comes to formula and effectiveness. They go on so smooth, keep me fresh all day long and give me no irritation. My hubs loves the Charcoal Deodorant and I love the Blue Tansy. Stop smelling and get them already!
Once I found out I was pregnant I was on a hunt for the best natural skincare that not only was safe but also effective. I didn't want to just start slathering coconut oil on my face since I was expecting- and all the mamas to be said amen! I wanted my products to still be working and giving me the antioxidants my skin needs. In comes True Botanical's!
I love that they have a pregnancy safe line that they have vetted for safety but also effectiveness. I use their Calm Pure Radiance Oil as not only a moisturizer but also to help smooth fine lines and combat redness. I tend to get even more redness when I'm pregnant. I also love their Nutrient Mist. It smells so good, but not overly potent. I find I'm sensitive to scents when pregnant and this is the perfect subtle scent. I spray this on my skin after cleansing before oils. I also use their Vitamin C Booster. A powerful combination of Vitamin C powder that isn't activated until you add water. I mix it with my Nutrient Mist and then apply to my skin. I follow with Calm Pure Radiance Oil. I love knowing my skin is getting active antioxidants even when I'm pregnant.
If you've been looking for safe skincare that still packs a punch when pregnant then I would recommend True Botanical's! I love them even when I'm not pregnant but so great knowing I can still use them when I am. Get their products here! Also, check out my full True Botanical's review here.
I've dry brushed for years but I've really gotten more into it since being pregnant. It can help increase blood flow and be great if you tend to swell. Some even say it can help prevent stretch marks. I dry brush before I shower. I also love it for the added exfoliation. It really gets my skin glowing more than anything! I tend to swell in my pregnancies and didn't dry brush with my last two and so this has been a game changer. It also just wakes up my whole body too in the mornings. Really getting my system moving. If you haven't tried it yet, do it! Such a good way to detox your body.
I have two different dry brushes. This one and this one– this one does shed from time to time. I like them both. The longer handle is nice for reaching my back. This is also a great video of dry brushing if you've never done it before!
