Organic Beauty Products- July

Organic Beauty Products- July is here!  It’s that time of the month where I tell all when it comes to my favorites I’ve been loving for the month of July.  This month is no different.  There are some stellar organic beauty products.  I had to restrain myself from wanting to share too many!

Think organic beauty products don’t work, or aren’t effective?  Then you better keep reading, because it’s 2019 and organic beauty products are taking over!

To think when I switched over 8 years ago the market had so little when it came to organic beauty products.  Now, the tables have turned and there’s so much.

This month I’ve got a new eyebrow pencil I’m loving, highlighter, lip and cheek stain, a natural skincare line that uses plant-derived retinol and a foundation that’s perfect for summer.  Plus, a salt spray that gives anybody beachy hair in minutes.

You ready to get the lowdown?!

This Ilia Liquid Light Highlighter is so easy to use and creates a lit from within glow.


Ilia Liquid Light

You’ll see a theme in this blog post as I share about Ilia’s products.  They are too good to not share!  When it comes to organic beauty products that work Ilia doesn’t mess around.  I feel like a broken record with their products because I always love all the products I use.

The Liquid Light is no different.  It comes in a glass bottle and you pump it out.  It comes in three colors.  I’ve tried 2 and they’re both so good.  I have Nova and Astrid.  Nova is more of a champagne color, and Astrid is more bronzey.  You can wear these so many ways.

My favorite way is to mix them with my liquid foundation.  I put a pump of the Liquid Light on my hand and then add my liquid foundation.  Then I blend it together with a brush and apply to my skin.  It creates this all over illuminated look.  My skin looks like it’s glowing from the inside out.

You also can apply it after you put on your foundation.  Check out the diagram below to see where you would apply a highlighter.

This wakes up your whole look- can’t stop using!  Get them here.

These Ilia lip conditioners are the perfect summer lip!


Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner

I’ve tried Ilia’s lip conditioner’s in the past but my love for them has been revived.  They are hydrating, offer SPF 15 and they give a subtle hint of color.  The perfect summer lip product.  Want some color, but also SPF when you’re out in the sun?  They check all the boxes.  I just tried Crimson and Clover and I LOVE it!  It’s a bright yet subtle see through red that takes your whole look up a notch.  If you want a lip product that protects, moisturizes and makes you look put together- this is it.  Get it here.

These Ilia Color Haze Multi-Matte Pigments are changing the game when it comes to a multi-use product.


Ilia Color Haze Multi-Matte Pigment

These are a newer product by Ilia as well and they definitely live up to the hype.  They look like a lipgloss.  They come in a variety of colors.  I have three, Waking Up, Before Today, and Sing.  They have five colors total.  You can really make a statement with these depending on how much you apply.  If you want a subtle look, just blend a swipe of color and then blend out.  If you want a more dramatic look, apply more for a pop of color.

They also work for cheeks or lips!  They give a great matte lip effect for the lips.  The formula is so creamy.  I love how they feel on the skin.  The longevity on these is awesome too!  I keep reaching for these lately.  Get them here.

Wearing Clove and Hallow’s Liquid Skin Tint and Ilia’s Color Haze Multi-Matte Pigments.


Clove and Hallow Liquid Skin Tint

This has quickly taken up residence in my bathroom.  A lot of clean beauty foundations are known for their dewiness.  They add oils to foundations to really give that dewy skin look.  However, it’s hard to get rid of that dewiness once you have it on your skin.  This is especially great in the summer months when humidity is so high and your makeup can end up on anything but your face by the end of the day.

What makes it so unique?

  • It’s lightweight
  • Comes in 12 shades(they even did a focus group with 20 women and all were able to find a shade for their skin type)
  • Provides a demi-matte finish
  • Price Point is really affordable at $26
  • Feels creamy to the touch but dries matte

With Clove and Hallow’s Liquid Skin Tint you’re able to add oils of your choice, or a liquid highlighter to bring out the luminosity if you like.  Really making it a truly versatile product all around.  I’m addicted!  I love that it offers light to medium coverage, depending what I want for the day.  I literally feel like I’m not wearing anything when I have it on.

I’ve been mixing the Liquid Skin Tint Foundation with Ilia’s Liquid Light- perfect combo.  It gives my skin a glow but doesn’t look too shiny.  Try it!  Get the Clove and Hallow Liquid Skin Tint here.

This new Ecobrow defining crayon is a new fave for eyebrow definition.


Eco Brow Defining Crayon For Eyebrows

I couldn’t wait to share this new find with you!  This is one of those products that I didn’t expect to love as much as I have!  I keep reaching for it.  I was surprised how much I liked it since it’s an eyebrow pencil.  I’m not typically drawn to an eyebrow pencil.  They are too harsh and look overdone in my opinion.  But not this one!

It is so easy to use, which I’m super excited to share with you because I know a lot of you have had a harder time using Beautycounter’s Eyebrow Gel.  This is fool proof!  Really, so simple and looks so natural.  I love how it has a slanted tip, so it’s easy to draw on realistic pigment.  I have the color Penelope- it’s for brunettes.  It comes in a total of six colors. This is a newer product from Ecobrow and I have to say they nailed it!  Get it here.

Rahua’s newest product Hydration Detangler + UV Barrier is the perfect summer hair product.


Rahua Hydration Detangler + UV Barrier

This is Rahua’s newest product and I was pumped to try it!  If you’ve followed me for a hot minute you know I’m a fan of their products.  They deliver when it comes to effective hair products.

I’ve been searching for a product like this, so naturally it had to go in my organic beauty products- July post!  Whenever I go in the pool I love knowing I’m protecting my hair from the elements.  This not only helps to detangle the hair but also protect it with a UV barrier.  When you apply something to your hair before you jump into water, the water then has a tendency to just slide off versus being absorbed into the hair.  When it comes to chlorine water I’m especially mindful of this.  I just spritz this all over and then the hair doesn’t just soak up the chlorine.  It’s especially great for protecting color treated hair from the elements.  Clean beauty has needed this product!

Plus, it detangles the hair SO well!  Any of you mamas out there have little girls with hair that tends to knot?  This is your answer.  It moisturizes and leaves hair feeling shiny and tangle free.  Get it here.


Beautycounter Countertime review

The new Beautycounter Countertime line has plant-derived retinols that are bringing natural skincare to a whole new level.


Beautycounter Countertime Line

I mean if you follow me you know I haven’t put this skincare line down since I got it!  I definitely had to include it in my organic beauty products- July edition.  It hits all the marks and some.  I’m not saying this because I’m a consultant, or connected with Beautycounter, although why not promote something I’m associated with but I’m sharing this line with you because I truly think it’s different.

If I was given this skincare line and it wasn’t Beautycounter I would still be wanting to share about it, when you find good skincare products, that not only work but also are natural you want to shout it from the rooftops- or at least that’s how I feel as a natural beauty blogger!

This line uses plant-derived retinols to literally transform your skin.  What I love is they are using plant-derived retinols that have been proven to give amazing results!  I have the whole collection and I LOVE it all.  Trust me, you will go crazy for this.  My skin has never felt better!  So many ask me for effective anti-aging skincare lines- well this is it.  I did a whole blog post dedicated to the line.  Read about it here!

If you don’t want to buy the whole line, I would suggest just starting with the Tripeptide Radiance Serum or The Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream.  These not only have the plant-derived retinols but also the peptides in them.  Giving you a one, two punch against fine lines and wrinkles.  Get the line here!
