This month isn't any different. There are so many new products and finds. Also some old standbys that are coming back into my rotation because of the weather or just because I rediscovered them.
Check out all the best of natural beauty January below!
I've been on the hunt for a new eyeshadow palette since my beloved Beautycounter palette is being discontinued. I was so sad! If you've followed me for a while then you know my love ran deep for those palettes. I was ready to try something new and found the Aether Beauty Palette. I have been loving it! It has the perfect mix of shimmers and matte colors. They also have a great range of colors too. I have the Rose Quartz palette and it is stunning! This would be perfect even if you have mature eyes as the shimmer shadows aren't sparkle looking but more subdued. I also love how conscious their packaging is. They removed the mirror and magnets from the palette so it is fully recyclable. With ingredients like shea butter, rosehip oil and coconut oil, the formula feels so silky smooth on the skin. Trust me, you'll be hooked after your first swipe! Get the palette here!
Well I started using this several months ago when it first came out and haven't stopped. Then my hubs got hooked on it too. I had tried Josh Rosebrook's original Active Infusion Oil without retinoids or Vitamin C but it wasn't until I tried this one that I really understood how magical it was! I love how hydrating it feels on the skin but not like it's going to clog your pores. Not only does it help improve skin tone and help reverse signs of aging but it also moisturizes so well. It has a stabilized Vitamin C that helps to brighten and antioxidant herb and mushroom infusions that help to soothe the skin and calm it. I love hydrating my skin with extra nourishment in the winter but also giving it some serious anti-aging benefits! This is a one-two punch for the skin. I use it at night after I tone my skin. It feels so rich! Check it out here!
I LOVE this moisturizing oil. I knew it had to be in the best of natural beauty January. I don't think I've formerly introduced you to it before. I always have this sitting in my skincare arsenal in case I might need it. Squalene has long been touted as having some serious benefits to the skin. It has anti-aging benefits, as well as anti-inflammatory benefits. It also helps to reverse the signs of sun damage and is incredibly hydrating and nourishing to the skin. The best part? It's tolerated by every skin type! Yes, if you have oily skin, this works for you, if you have dry skin, sensitive skin, inflamed skin- this is for you too. That's what makes this oil so special and unique. Literally the only ingredient in this oil is squalene oil- no other additives. One of the reasons why I love this ingredient so much! Not only is it a powerhouse for the skin but it can be used by so many skin types. Squalene can be derived from sharks but the humane method of extraction is from olives. No sharks involved. This is how Indie Lee's Squalene Oil is extracted as well.
I keep this oil on hand because at times my skin can be irritated or get inflamed from trying out all the beauty products. I'm a beauty blogger at heart but sometimes my skin just needs simple and a break. That's where squalene oil comes in. It literally calms my skin and helps relieve inflammation. I love knowing that I'm not applying 10 different ingredients on my skin but just one! Recently I went through a season where I was testing out so many skincare products my skin started to flare up a little. I quickly stopped using everything and switched to just this squalene oil and noticed a difference immediately! This is incredibly nourishing and hydrating to the skin too. I don't even need a cream after applying this. If you or someone you know suffers from inflamed skin or sensitive skin and even dry skin- try this! I has no smell, no essential oils- just pure squalene oil. Get it here!
I've been using this on my youngest girl who has curly hair and it does wonders for her curls- no pun intended! It feels like a silky balm. When you apply it to the hair it moisturizes and gives shine to the curls. It completely eliminates frizz. It doesn't feel heavy though or greasy. You just need a little product. I apply a dime sized drop all over my hands and then run it through her damp hair. Then I shape her curls with my fingers or with a blow-dryer. I've also used this on my hair at the ends after curling my hair. It helps to give a sleekness and overall smoothness to my hair and eliminate frizz. If you have curly hair this is for you! Even if your hair is thick and coarse but straight I would recommend this. It's really going to hydrate without the greasiness and add some shine. Get it here!
I have read rave reviews about this body oil forever and couldn't wait to try it myself. Let's just say it did not disappoint! First is smells incredible. It has notes of passionfruit, lime, cypress and grapefruit in it. What makes this body oil so special in my opinion is the mineral rich seaweed. This helps to firm the skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Plus, the oil is filled with açaí, babassu and passion fruit. They soil the algae in the botanical oils for 6 months to infuse the nutrients in the formula- so cool. It also comes in a glass pump bottle- another thing I love about it. I apply this right after I shower to soak in all the moisture. My skin feels so hydrated and supple. It feels like a rich oil on your skin- true luxury. If you've been searching for an oil that truly moisturizes the skin, while also delivering nutrients, this is it. Get it here!
I've long been a fan of the Clove and Hallow Lip Velvets but was reminded of my affection for them when I saw they had a new color! The new color is called Roulette and is the prettiest deep red hue. If you haven't tried this lip stains you need too! They are rich, pigmented and stay put. I often get asked what I would recommend for a lip stain in natural beauty and this is it. They are packed with color and really do last. I always make sure and exfoliate my lips beforehand to make sure there is no dry skin and then hydrate them with a lip balm. Next I apply a concealer to help cancel out any competing color and to help the lip color stay even longer. Then I apply the lip stain. Once applied I take a piece of paper and blot once. Presto! Color that lasts. They have some fun colors to choose from. I've been loving Roulette though- perfect color for Valentine's Day! I love the colors Napa and Road Trip– bold but so pretty. Check them all out here!
That sums up my best of natural beauty- January! See anything you're wanting to try?
