It’s that time of month again! Best of natural beauty March edition is here. Every month I’m sharing some new natural beauty products with you. These could new releases, new to me or just products I’ve started to use again with the season change. If you haven’t noticed natural beauty is only getting better and better every year! The industry is growing wildly and I’m so here for it.
This month I’ve got some fun new releases I’m excited to share with you! I’m talking about a new natural mascara fave, a new natural cleanser, a new tinted moisturizer/foundation, plus a moisturizer that is giving me life. Check out all the goodness below!
Best Of Natural Beauty March Edition-
This was seriously love at first swipe! Finding a good natural mascara can sometimes seem like a task. However, in recent years formulas have just gotten better with time. I love how easy it is to get lift and pigment with this mascara. It doesn’t take 20 swipes to really get some product on your lashes. AND it does everything! Yes, you heard me right. From giving my lashes lift, volume, separation and length. The only thing I’ve noticed was a few black specks around my eyes after working out heavily. I’m a sweater and have beads of sweat coming from my forehead after a workout- so mascara in general doesn’t always stand a chance. It’s not a big deal and isn’t running off my face but I did want to mention that. It also comes in a glass tube which I’ve never seen and love. Such a eco-friendly alternative to plastic. I’m sure more companies will start doing this! I wanted to mention that the mascara is made for sensitive eyes. So if you do find a lot of mascaras irritate you, you might want to check out this one. Get the mascara here!
Wow, Aillea sent me this cleanser and let’s just say I was so impressed after the first use. This is what I expect from my cleanser. I want it to remove all my makeup and not leave any residue- this includes mascara. I want to be able to just rinse it off with water and not have to use a washcloth. Now most oil cleansers you need a washcloth and I’m not saying I don’t love oil cleansers but overall I prefer a cleanser that doesn’t require an extra step like using a washcloth in this season of my life(hello baby, a 3 year old and a 5 year old). So you can imagine my delight when I used this cleanser for the first time and it removed all my makeup- yes even the stubborn mascara and rinsed off with water. Plus, my skin still felt hydrated and had a subtle glow to it. The only other cleanser that really hits all the marks for me is Beautycounter’s Countertime Cleansing Oil. It does all of the things I mentioned above as well. So if you’re needing a good cleanser- look no further! Get the Beuti Glow Enzyme Cleanser here!
I had to include this moisturizer in the best of natural beauty for March. Another product I received from Aillea and can’t stop using! It has the perfect weight for a moisturizer. Not too heavy, but moisturizing enough so your skin doesn’t feel dry. I’ve been applying this at night over my serum and oil for an extra boost of hydration. My skin feels supple and moist. I’ve also used it for a day moisturizer and love how my skin feels. My makeup goes on easily but doesn’t feel cakey. I love that it not only has ceramides but also squalene, Vitamin C and even some plant-derived retinol. If you’re not familiar with ceramides allow me to explain. They are lipids that help form the skin barrier, while helping the skin keep hydration and moisture. You want ceramides in your skincare. It’s basically a nutrient dense moisturizer that not only offers the perfect amount of hydration but also feeds your skin at the same time. My skin looks brighter after using. After I had been using it for a while I started to read more about it and wasn’t shocked when I saw it was given 5 stars from everyone! This is a moisturizer everyone could use.

This is Maya Chia’s newest product. I’ve been using it for 3 weeks. I always hesitate to talk about a skincare product right away because I like to give it time. If it’s one thing I tell people it’s that skincare products take time! Yes, you can know if you like something as far as texture or feel but serums and oils really take a while to see results. That being said I have been using this for a bit and definitely can speak to the overall experience of it. It contains the plant retinol bakuchiol which I’ve used before in other skincare products and it also contains moth bean extract- another plant derived retinol. But it also contains an advanced retinol using an encapsulated Retinol. This is a derivative of Vitamin A without BHT. BHT has been shown to cause live damage in rats even in small amounts. Plus, the supply chain with BHT is very unstable. Besides the powerful retinols it also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E. These brighten the skin and help fade hyperpigmentation. You’re also going to get some serious hydration from this serum with Buriti oil, and chia seed oil. I’ve only been using this for a bit because they advise not to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. I’ve heard from other bloggers how amazing it is as well. I’ll be sure to test it when I’m done nursing. Get the serum here!
So spring break is here for most people, and even though some of us are staying home I wanted to share this product. You’re going to need it for warm summer months! This is an all over body shimmer oil but it doesn’t leave you feeling greasy like many body oils. Also the shimmer isn’t glittery but just a nice subtle glow. This would be perfect for applying all over your skin before the beach or on a date night where you’re wearing a dress and want to snazz it up a bit. It smells citrusy and fresh. I know I’ll be applying this all the time to my legs especially in the summer! Get it here!
This is not a new product but one I couldn’t not mention since it’s been in my skincare rotation as of late nonstop. Admittedly I do go through phases with masks. Right now I can’t get enough of Leahlani’s Mermaid Mask. My skin is loving it. It really gives my skin all that it needs right now, plus a glow afterwards that I can’t deny. I love the smell too. You really feel transported to the islands where this mask is made. It’s a whole experience as you can tell. Many people ask what mask they should buy when transitioning to green beauty and this is it! I promise you will love it and thank me. It is a little piece of heaven. With ingredients like Chlorella, sea buckthorn, spirulina and raw honey, this mask is pure decadence. A lot of masks moisturize after wearing, but you don’t notice a visible difference to the naked eye. Not the case with the Mermaid Mask, you’ll be glowing! It smells so insanely good too. You’ll be tempted to eat it. If you’re needing a pick me up, or a special treat for you- get the Mermaid Mask and savor every ounce of self care. Get the Mermaid Mask here!
I was so excited to try the Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint. This is Ilia’s newest product launch. If you’ve followed me for a hot minute then you know I love pretty much anything Ilia makes! I had heard mixed reviews about their Super Serum Skin Tint. What’s unique about this serum skin tint is that it contains SPF 40 using the mineral zinc. The zinc is non-nano. It combines skincare, makeup and SPF all into one product. Not a small feat! It really is a little bottle full of goodness. Not only does it have the SPF but also skin loving ingredients like Niacinamide, Squalene, and Hyaluronic Acids. You end up with this dewy soft look but yet with a good amount of coverage. My skin doesn’t feel masked but it doesn’t feel too exposed. It doesn’t feel heavy at all, like I’m not wearing anything but I am. I’ve had so many people ask me about this product that I wanted to share my thoughts! I basically will be wearing this nonstop in the summer months. I love that the SPF is a decent amount. Many tinted moisturizers are 15 or 20 but 40 SPF is not something I’ve seen a lot of when it comes to a product like this. I apply mine after I’ve moisturized with either a day cream or an oil. I also have tried the Ilia Skin Radiant Priming Serum and love that combo too. I used a foundation brush for application but your finders work great too. Oh and did I mention it comes in 18 colors too? Check it out here!
