Best Of Clean Beauty October

The best of clean beauty October is here!  It’s the last day of the month which means, it’s Halloween- Happy Halloween!  And it also means my bubs is officially a month old- where did the time go?  This last month literally flew by.  I have a feeling the third babies grow up so much quicker.

Ok, clearly I could talk about mom stuff all day but that’s not what this post is about.  Bring on the beauty talk!  Specifically green beauty.  So there are some new products and a couple of old ones that I’ve been loving lately and can’t get enough of- they’ve been my go too’s especially as a mama to a newborn- there it is again the mom talk! Sorry I literally can’t help myself.

As the weather is changing and it’s going from crisp to chilly I’ve been loving a few seasonal things as well.  Check out what best of clean beauty for October I’ve been loving.


Beautycounter Starlight Palette-

This eyeshadow palette is part of Beautycounter’s new holiday collection.  It’s all together dreamy!  I love how it only has 5 shadows.  It keeps things simple and I know a lot of people like that.  Too many shadows can get overwhelming for people, especially if you’re not used to applying eyeshadow.  I love that the palette can work for day or night depending on what I’m doing.  It can be worn more neutral or more smokey and drama.  Plus, it even has a little sparkle shadow too for the holidays.  I can’t get enough.  Plus, it’s the perfect gift for the holidays!  Get one here before they’re sold out!

African Botanics creates amazing products, I haven’t found one I don’t love yet!


African Botanics-

So I have been trying a ton of their products and I’m going to share a few standouts already.  I’ll be doing a full review soon but for now these are products that I haven’t been able to stop using.  

  • Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish- This enzyme polish is what enzyme exfoliant dreams are made of.  It gently removes the dead skin, while revealing a brighter complexion.  You’re left with glowing skin!  The formula has sun dried buchu plant, mixed baobab fruit, micro algae and fine granules of ancient volcanic minerals. This combination feels so good on the skin.  Then papaya and pineapple helps to clear pores and improve overall glow. Great for even sensitive skin types.  I use this twice a week.  Get the Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish here.
  • Stretchmark Botanical Body Oil- I just had a baby as I mentioned earlier and I did get some stretch marks on the belly with this babe- thanks SJ!  This oil came at the perfect time.  I started to apply this right after I had him on the stretch marks.  It has blend of organic and cold pressed oils.  The oils include African Marula, Avocado, Baobab and wild rose.  These oils help tone and and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. I’ve only been using the oil for a month but I can already tell the texture has softened and smoothed!  I can’t wait to see what it does with more time.  I’ll keep you updated. Get the Stretchmark Botanical Body Oil here! 


Aleavia Body Wash

I mentioned this in my video the other day but I can’t not share it here too.  This body wash is a prebiotic body wash.  Prebiotics help to feed the skin and rid the skin of bad bacteria.  The enzymes help to heal the skin by stimulating the cells.  This results in helping to heal the skin of wounds, scars and blemishes.  It helps to strengthen the skin barrier, which slows down the aging process. It’s so different than a typical body wash. You’re feeding the good bugs on your skin instead of washing them off.  I use this on my kids, my new baby and my husband and I use it.  Especially great if you have psoriasis,  acne, or inflamed skin in general.  Get it here!

Juice Beauty is showing up with this Stem Cellular Vinifera Replenishing Oil- can’t get enough!


Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Vinifera Replenishing Oil-

This oil is a new find for me and I’m hooked!  I was so excited to receive it when I did because of the weather change.  It is meant to act as a primer before makeup or you can use it as a stand alone oil by itself.  I wish you could feel how soft my skin is after applying.  I add two to three drops to my face before makeup.  I let it fully absorb before applying makeup.  I brush my teeth while waiting.  I love that I can use one product to prime and hydrate.  Often I’m reaching for a moisturizer and then a primer.  But with this baby I only need one.  It feels in the cracks and fine lines of my skin making it appear plumper.  And it makes my skin SO dewy!  I love how soft and hydrated it looks.  The oil does fill rich initially when you apply it but it seeps into the skin so well.  I can’t recommend it enough!  Perfect for normal to dry skin, especially in the colder months.  Get it here!

Wearing RMS Beauty Hidden Desire Palette and Fitglow Lip Serum in Koi.


RMS Beauty Hidden Desire Palette

I had to include this palette for the best of clean beauty October!  This is a new launch from RMS Beauty.  I love when companies do palettes like this!  It’s such a great gift and so easy to travel with.  I love having everything in one spot.  It really simplifies the makeup process.  The palette includes 6 shadow colors, a highlighter and a blush color.  They are all pressed powder pigments.  It comes in a sleek white case and with a big mirror.  The colors are perfect for everyday wear.  You can also jazz it up too with some richer browns and a navy blue. Below you can see me wearing the full palette for you.  It’s rich and beautiful!  Check it out here!


Fitgow Beauty Lip Serums

Have you tried these yet?  I talk about them all the time on my Instagram account.  For good reason, they really take the cake when it comes to moisture, shine and pigment.  They’re a cross between a gloss and a lipstick.  I’m not a huge gloss girl, but these aren’t a gloss completely.  They’re like a serum with color but for your lips.  I know sounds weird but they’re truly special. Glosses can be too gunky for me, but these offer the perfect amount of subtle shine.  I pretty much have every color- there’s not a bad one.  Get one already if you haven’t!  


That sums up my best of clean beauty for October!  What are you loving lately? Leave me a comment!
