Now you might be wondering what a Chilipad is, or an Ooler Sleep System.  Allow me to explain.  It is a topper that goes underneath your sheets, and on top of your mattress to deliver cooling temperatures to your body.  It is a thermal delivery system that uses a water-based hydronic pad that keeps you cool at night so you can have better sleep.  They have the original Chilipad and the Ooler Sleep System.  The Ooler Sleep System includes all that the Chilipad offers but some added functions.  You fill a tank with water and it runs it through the pad delivering cooling temperatures with it.  Before I get into the Ooler Chilipad review I wanted to share a few more things with you about the sleep systems.  Read my full review here.

I’m going to share my faves and brands that are absolute standouts.  These would be great for you(of course) and any other friend, mom, sister, co-worker…you get the idea.  So many of these would make great stocking stuffers too. 

Without further adieu let’s get down to my Vert Beauty Clean Beauty Favorites!

Leahlani Skincare Review

To have used a Leahlani product is to love it!

Leahlani-

First, before I tell you about the skincare line, I must tell you about the creator herself, Leah.  A true artist when it comes to skin, Leah dealt with her own set of skin issues.  Through her own skin struggles, she believes fate led her to pursue a career in skincare, and become a holistic esthetician.  Leah learned so much firsthand being a spa director, and then having her own practice.  This journey not only led her to find her passion, but it paved the way for Leahlani Skincare to be born.  Leah wanted to create a skincare line that would be a, “ritual and not a routine.”

She not only healed her skin through her creations, but has helped so many others achieve healing as well.  Every time I open a jar, or bottle of Leahlani skincare I feel like I’m getting a hand signed love note written just to me.  It may have to do with the fact that each, and every creation is made by hand. 

  • Mermaid Mask- This mask is seriously so good.  I was out of it for several months(shame on me) and the first time using it again I promised to never be without it again!  This green goodness makes me happy every time I put it on.  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.  Her mask 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. Perfect for any skin type.  Get it here!
  • Honey Love- This is an enzyme cleanser and exfoliant.  A great exfoliant option for those with sensitive skin or acne skin as it uses enzyme to exfoliate the skin and not a mechanical exfoliant. It has a potent blend of anti-inflammatory noni fruit, toning hibiscus flower, stimulating clays, and microdermabrasion crystals.  It helps to smooth the skin and improve texture and tone. It gets your skin glowing in no time!  Get it here.
  • Pamplemousse Cleansing Oil- This tropical cleansing oil removes all your makeup and debris from the day and gives your skin some serious hydration.  It also smells amazing!  It slightly emulsifies as you add water to it too- giving it just the right amount of slip.  Get it here.

Osmia Organics Bar Soap Review

Osmia-

I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah the founder years ago.  She was pure gold and so fun to talk too.  Did I mention she’s the fittest person?!  Sarah is an ER doctor and started Osmia.  She had no intention of starting a skincare company but after taking a soap making class she knew she was in love.  After two years of relentless soap making, product testing, perfume making she jumped full force into Osmia, leaving the medical field.  Now years later, Osmia is a household name in the clean beauty industry.  The mission of Osmia is to incorporate their luxe products into people’s everyday lives.  With top notch natural ingredients, Osmia will inspire you towards a healthier lifestyle.  Big on educating the consumer, I love how Osmia lists products they use on their website and products they don’t use and why.

  • Night and Naked Body Oil- This is definitely one of my very favorites.  I’ve gone through several bottles and I’m always sad when it’s gone.  If you’re into luxe products then you need to snag some Osmia Night Body Oil.  A blend of lavender, chamomile and cedar wood overtake your senses.  It’s meant to be applied after you shower on damp skin and at night.  The combination of the essential oils help you drift off into a blissful sleep.  With a combination of almond oil, jojoba, rosehip seed oil and hemp- to name a few, this oil will take your skin to a new level of hydration and tone in a couple weeks.  I can’t get enough!  I also love how they have small bottle- perfect for travel.  If you prefer to have an essential oil free body oil, check out their Naked version.  Equally delectable but free of any scent but the oils.  Get the Naked oil here. Get the Night oil here.
  • Body Mousse- This body mousse is straight up decadence!  Trust me, you’ll try it and never want to stop using it.  It feels like a whipped frosting going on your body.  So light and fluffy.  It melts into your skin the second it touches it and you’re left with the softest baby skin ever.  I’m warning you now though- you will be hooked!  Get it here.
  • Vital Rose Drops- The name is so appropriate for it, it truly feels like nectar on your skin, a rich luxe oil.  Some oils feel thinner but this one feels fatty-haha are you still with me?!  Let’s just say I love the feel of it.  And the smell, amazing!  Subtle rose, sandalwood and jasmine envelope you.  I applied this at night and in the morning.  At night I applied it after the toner and my skin just drank it up.  In the morning my skin felt silky smooth and hydrated.  It was as if it had a big drink of water at night and was infused with oxygen.  Seriously, it’s SO good!  You only need a few drops too.  Having dry skin once the weather starts to turn I like adding a heavier moisturizer/oil in the morning.  This was just the ticket.  I allowed my skin to soak it up for 5 minutes before applying my makeup.  You guys will love this, trust me!  With only 8 ingredients, this 99.6% organic nectar is seriously so lovely. Get it here.

OSEA review

OSEA

If you’re not familiar with OSEA allow me to fill you in on this natural skincare line.  This brand is truly unique.  I was so intrigued by the founder Jenefer’s story of how she started it.  She was inspired by her grandmother who credits the ocean to healing her.  She had been on bedrest after a severe leg injury.  Her grandmother recalls having a dream about the sea and the next day went for a swim.  A few weeks later her grandmother was healed!  Jenefer went to her roots when creating OSEA.  From what she learned from her grandmother of the healing properties of the ocean and her knowledge, she chose seaweed as the base of her skincare line.  Seaweed contains powerful minerals and ingredients to help restore and nourish the skin.

  • Ocean Cleanser- This is one of my favorite cleansers in clean beauty.  It isn’t drying but not overly hydrating either.  A good balance for sure.  If you tend to have oily skin, or live in a pretty mild climate during the winter this would be a great cleanser.  I first get my skin damp, then apply this cleanser all over my skin. Grab it here!
  • Undaria Body Oil- This body oil is full of antioxidants!  It has Undaria seaweed which is then mixed with a ton of skin loving oils like açaí, babassu and passion fruit.  This combination helps to smooth and firm skin from stretch marks, as well as tone your skin.  It doesn’t feel too heavy or greasy.  It absorbs nicely into the skin.  The Algae alone is soaked in barrels for 6 months in order to extract all the rich vitamins and minerals from it.  It’s basically a living oil that transforms and treats your skin!  It feels very energizing too with an overall citrus scent.  Great for in the morning after your shower and you want a little zesty pick me up!  Get it here.
  • Atmosphere Protection Cream- This protection cream is one of the best.  It feels so hydrating for everyday wear and not greasy at all.  Light enough under makeup as well.  Love the pump bottle.  Get it here.

Bluh Alchemy-

The products are infused with highly potent plant actives that really complement one another.  The whole Bluh Alchemy line is meant to target the signs of aging skin and to deliver highly active plant ingredients that help protect against the environment and stress.  Their formulations are filled with bioactive, organic and wild harvested ingredients.  This is what skincare dreams are made of!  The founder Becky is so thoughtful in her formulation approach and a serious gem.  This line has been in all the clean beauty boxes- so you know it’s one to take notice of!

  • Botanic Retinol- This is one skin transforming product!  It contains the beloved Bakuchiol. The only plant-derived retinol that has been proven to produce results!  I’m talking increase collagen, improve the skin’s elasticity and support skin’s firmness.  You could say it’s a one-two punch for giving skin it’s youthful glow back.  It does what you want conventional retinol to do but without the negative side effects.  Not only does it include the superstar Bakuchiol but also a ton of other active plant oils from carrot, fig, cacay and watermelon.  All rich with Vitamin A.  Plus, it doesn’t stop there.  This also hydrates your skin with lupine ceramides and lupine amino acids.  It’s basically your new BFF when it comes to effective skincare. Get it here!
  • Multi-C Serum- This serum has a multitude of Vitamin C’s all wrapped into one.  From quandong and sea buckthorn berry oils.  When you combine them together they are a force to be reckoned with!  It’s no secret Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can brighten, lighten and create a glowing complexion.  Plus, this unique formula has peptides that help to firm the skin, green coffee, and ferric acid.  Say bye to dull, ruddy skin and hello to glowing, radiant skin!  I use it after toning my skin at night and in the morning.  I noticed an improved overall texture, glow and evenness to my skin.  I love how it absorbs so effortlessly into the skin.  And can we talk about the luxe frosted glass bottle?  I love how it pumps how and has a cap- so easy for travel. I can’t wait to keep using it! Get it here.
  • Eye Oil Serum- I’ve been testing this eye oil serum out and LOVE!  I’m not big into creams for the under eye area for me personally because I tend to get milia if I use anything too heavy.  This is just the right amount of hydration but not too much.  It comes in a glass rollerball and you just apply it right onto the under eye area.  I love how it feels cooling with the rollerball.  The formula doesn’t feel to greasy.  It really seeps right into the eye area.  I use this in the morning and at night. I find in the morning it’s nice for a little de-puffing with the cooler rollerball.  Get it here!

Ecobrow-

This natural brow line has it going on!  They specialize in all the brow products.

  • Defining Crayon- This brow pencil is my favorite!  It’s what I use everyday.  If you follow me on Instagram then you know I can’t stop using it.  It works so well.  I like it for many reasons.  One, it is so easy to use.  Something I find a lot of people struggle with.  Second, it lasts the whole day and looks natural. No Cleopatra eyes going on.  I wear the color Liz, but they offer so many colors.  Get it here.

Fitglow Beauty

This was definitely going in my Vert Beauty clean beauty favorites.  Anna, the founder is a longtime fitness and health guru that battled sensitive rosacea skin.  She wanted products that would help her skin not turn bright red during workouts and be effective.  With over 10 years of research in plant based ingredients, Anna discovered ingredients that feed and nourish the skin. FitGlow Beauty, a Canadian born company, was created to be with you wherever the day may take you.  From yoga, to the office and everything in between.  They actually have subjects test their products while running and doing yoga, to ensure they perform in any condition…how cool is that?  Their beauty products are not only clean, and non-toxic but nourishing to the skin.  Full of active ingredients-vitamins that feed your skin, and organic extracts.  

  • Lip Serums- Ok, this product is just gold!  Trust me when I say there’s nothing else like it out there.  It feels like a gloss but doesn’t look gooey, or sticky at all.  It isn’t fully a lip gloss though.  I’m not a gloss girl and if you’ve read my blog long enough you know that.  The name really says it all- it’s a lip color serum.  A serum that performs so well!  It offers color pigment but isn’t all over the place.  Plus, gives you all the hydration.  Love the colors, Bliss, Nudie, Go, and Root.  Get them here.
  • Fitglow Conceal +- This is the best concealer for covering hyperpigmentation in clean beauty- no joke.  It’s too heavy for under eyes but for covering redness, scarring, it’s perfect.  It’s thick enough and stays put the whole day.  Get it here.
  • Night Lip Serum- I use this every single night!  I even use it in the morning sometimes when my lips need a little extra moisture.  Since the skin on the lips is the thinnest and ages so quickly you want to make sure you’re taking extra care to ensure it is well nourished. The Night Lip Serum is full of actives that help to plump the lips, fight signs of aging and keep moisture intact.  It feels so good on the lips!  Get it here.

Ilia-

They are one of my favorite natural beauty makeup brands!  They were one of the first on the clean beauty scene years ago and continue to keep making exceptional beauty products.  From their True Skin Serum Foundation, to their Ilia Beauty Lipsticks- Ilia Cosmetics has it going on.  Besides there staples that I’ve loved over the years they’ve also come out with some stellar products within the last year that I can’t get enough of.  I wanted to share a new update of what products I’m using and how they go on.  

  • Limitless Lash Mascara- This is a newer natural  mascara find and I’ve been loving it.  They created a patented brush.  One side is for curling and the other side is for lengthening. It really does give my lashes a curl boost and makes adding length to them even easier.  The formula is a little on the wet side, but not too wet that it smudges all over.  I’m really able to build length with this mascara too.  They also have a smaller travel size too!  I love this option.  You can easily try it out without breaking the bank. It doesn’t smudge on me at all. Get it here.
  • Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation- I actually prefer this over Ilia’s Vivid Founation because it doesn’t feel greasy to me and the longevity is great.  It is a liquid but then it sets after a while and you get a great long wearing foundation.  It really feels and acts like your skin, yet I still feel like it gives my skin great coverage. This is definitely one of my favorites in my organic beauty foundation guide. Get it here.
  • Chromatic Liquid Eyeshadows- These are everything!  My newest obsessions in natural makeup.  They came out this fall and I haven’t been able to stop using them.  They go on so smooth and stay put!  Yes, they don’t budge. Which is unheard of in clean beauty for a cream or liquid eyeshadow.  They’re great for acting as an eye primer before your powder eyeshadow too. I even use the lighter shades for highlighters for my face!  So many uses.  Such a great gift for a teen, young adult or mama.  Get them here.
  • Eye Primer- I’ve talked about this nonstop but as the weather has warmed up there is no denying my need for this even more.  It keeps my eyeshadow in place like nothing else.  The pigment stands out and is richer because of this primer.  Gone are the days of creasing shadows that fade as the day goes on.  This Primer is in a league of it’s own!  Get it here.

I

Innersense Hair Products-

The founders of Innersense, Greg and Joanne Starkman, were in the beauty and wellness industry for years when they realized their beliefs weren’t matching up with their professional lives.  This birthed Innersense, a company that prides itself on integrity.  Their whole philosophy is so commendable and just down right amazing!  From actually listing every ingredient and why it’s in there, to environment sustainability, kindness to animals, and giving back…the list could go on.  I mean the ingredient glossary alone is so cool.  I love that they’re both hair stylists.  They are really able to test the products so well.

  • Innersense Whipped Cream Texturizer- I use this product everyday on my girl’s hair and on mine and my hub’s uses it.  You could say it’s well loved.  It helps to define curls, eliminate frizz and smooth hair, as well as add a bit of texture.  I love using it on my hair after I curl it to leave it with some texture, and give it a tousled look.  Can’t recommend it enough! Get it here.
  • I Create Lift Volumizing Foam- This foam is the best for giving your roots and hair the body and volume that lasts all day!  Literally my hair will still have volume after a couple days.  The best volumizing hair product I’ve found in organic beauty.  A lot of times I’ll wash my hair and then blow dry it before bed.  Once I’m done blow drying it I’ll stick it up in a high pony tail.  In the morning my hair is full of body from being up in the pony tail and using the volume foam- it’s so good!  Get it here.
  • I Create Waves- This is another favorite.  I spray this in my hair after styling and it gives it the beachy look so effortlessly. Get it here.

Kosas

I mean if you’ve followed me for a hot minute you know I can’t get enough of Kosas products!  They remind me of my conventional favorite MAC products.  From the packaging to formulas.

  • Kosas Tinted Face Oil- a hydrating spin on foundation that feels light and leaves you glowing. I thought I wouldn’t like it originally but after using it I realized how wrong I was.  The formula is a lot thinner than I expected.  It reminds me of Gressa’s foundation consistency.  I always say Gressa’s foundation reminds me of paint thinner.  Haha, I know a crazy example.  The Kosas Tinted Face Oil offers such good coverage, a lot better than I thought.  It gives my face an overall polished and pulled together look.  Plus, it looks so dewy and fresh.  My skin literally looks like it’s glowing! Especially great for skin in the winter as it gets colder. Get it here.
  • Lipsticks- They’re definitely a go to of mine in clean beauty.  Their formula is unlike any other.  Not too hydrating where they bleed but moisturizing enough. I feel like as the season changes to cooler temperatures and fall leaves come- it always calls for richer pigments. A lipstick does just that.  One of my faves is Kosas Lipsticks.  I may have every color!  If you follow me then you know I love a good Kosas lipstick.  These lipsticks are highly pigmented, last and plump the lips all at the same time.  They come in so many great colors too.  Honestly, I haven’t found a color I didn’t love.  Some lipsticks feel too heavy, or not hydrating enough- Kosas really nailed the formula on this one.  Everything you want in a lipstick- but clean!  Often I don’t have time for a full makeup look but I have time for a swipe of lipstick- pulling my whole look together.  Get them here.
  • Revealer Concealer- I included this new concealer in my Best of Clean Beauty Concealer here.  But wanted to pay a little tribute to it here.  I have been loving the formula.  It’s a new release for them and really is unique compared to other brands I’ve used in the past.  It’s very brightening and really wakes up your whole complexion.  It also helps to hide dark circles.  Kosas calls it a lightbulb for your skin and I couldn’t agree more!  It instantly gives your skin a glow. I love that it has caffeine to help de-puff the under eye area and hyaluronic acid to add hydration.  The formula is so creamy too.  It provides medium to full coverage for a concealer.  I love this under my eyes.  If you’ve been looking for a new concealer, look no further! Get it here.

Marie Veronique

Why is their skincare line so different?  For starters they rely heavily on research to determine what is best for your skin and what ingredients actually work.  They really address each skin issue on it’s own.  Their website alone is a wealth of info. from the ingredients they use to the ones they don’t.  Plus, they have a great blog resource on skincare.  They’ve done the leg work for you.  Their formulas contain a lot of actives too, so you see a difference in your skin.

  • Replenishing Oil Cleanser- have to start with their cleanser…because it’s my favorite!!  This one is in a league of it’s own.  It is an oil but more of a creamy oil.  It comes in a glass pump bottle which makes me love it even more.  I always shake it up before I use it to make sure the product is evenly distributed.  I get my skin slightly damp and then squeeze out a small amount and massage into my skin.  The best part?  It removes not only my face makeup but also my eye makeup-with no stinging!  Yes, a miracle cleanser is what I call it.  After I massage it all in, I then take a warm wash cloth and wipe off. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all but helps keep it so balanced. Get it here.
  • Marie Veronique Pure + E.O. Free Cleanser- Similar to the replenishing oil cleanser but this is essential oil free and perfect for those with sensitive skin.  Get it here.
  • Soothing B3 Serum- that has 10% Niacinamide- a natural form of vitamin B that helps with acne and inflammatory skincare conditions.  Love this!  Get it here.
  • Barrier Liquid Complex- this helps to restore the barrier function of the skin, something that is often missing when your skin is inflamed. It helps to soothe and calm the skin.  Get it here.

Best Natural Home Gifts

Sharing my best natural home gifts with you today!  I get asked this question a lot.  What natural home gifts would I recommend.  Well, here they are!  After detoxing my beauty 10 years ago I slowly started to also detox my home. From the sheets I bought to the mattresses, cleaning supplies and water.  I was determined to get the toxins out!

The holidays are the perfect time to stock up on some natural home products. Especially when the savings are so huge.  I’ve listed below some of the best natural home gifts in hopes it will help make detoxing your home a little easier.  

 

Best Natural Home Gifts

 

Berkey Water Filter-

Having a water filter is one of the best things you can do for your family.  This filters out everything, even fluoride with their fluoride filter.  I would recommend for most average size families the Big Berkey but you may want a smaller one or larger one depending on family size.  I always tell people to think about not just drinking water but also water that you use to cook with.  It might seem like a lot initially but really you go through the water quick for daily use.  Once you buy it, you will only have to replace the filters every couple years, except the fluoride filter usually every 8-12 months.  A worthwhile investment knowing you will have clean water for a lifetime!   This year Berkey has their sales on their website through email.  You just enter your email and you’ll get access to all their sales.  Check it out here!

 

Blendtec Blender-

I don’t know what I would do without my blender? Seriously. I use it everyday- sometimes twice a day.  I make my hubs smoothie and my smoothie every morning.  Then I also use it for sauces, blending pancake mixes, juicing, making nut butters- the list is endless!  I have the small twister jar but I also have the large blender jar too.  The small one is great for sauces and nut butters.  They came out with their Blendtec Go this year and it has been a game changer!!  I can just put the ingredients in the jar and put it on the blender, push start and walk away!  No more holding the blender while it blends.  Plus, once it’s done blending you can simply take the cup with you- no more transferring to a different blender.  If you don’t have a high speed blender I can’t recommend it enough!  Shop Blendtec here!

 

Purity Coffee-

If you’ve followed me for even a week you’ve probably seen me post about Purity Coffee.  I’m obsessed with it!  This coffee goes beyond organic. It is also mold and mycotoxin free.  Check out my full review here.  There even have subscriptions!  Plus, coffee sachets that are great for travel.  Perfect gift for the coffee lover.  Check out Purity Coffee here.

 

SOL Organic Sheets- 

These sheets are what luxury is made of!  They are made with fair trade certified cotton, and certified organic cotton.  The second party certifications include GOTS, Oeko-Tex and FLOCERT- a global fair trade certification.  These 300 thread count cotton sheets wrap you up in softness the minute they touch your skin!  They come in a variety of colors too. We chose white and are happy with how crisp and clean they look.  They also have 3 different sheet sets.  You can get a hemmed version, classic or pleated.  We got the hemmed version.  Each set comes with two pillow cases, a fitted sheet and a flat sheet.  And yes they stay on our mattress too!  They also come in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King and Split King. Can’t say enough about these luxury sheets.  They also offer organic duvet covers and bedroom sets that include the duvet and sheet set. 30% OFF using code: BF20 for Black Friday. Get them here!

 

White Lotus Home Pillows-

They are a store that offers pure and natural mattresses, bedding, and home furnishings all made in the USA.  It’s your one stop shop to clean up your bedroom!  When I was choosing my pillow options to try out they were so helpful.  Walking me through the whole process and asking questions to ensure I had the best options for how I sleep.  I love that you can get a zippered pillow option, so you’re able to take out the filling if it’s too firm.  Making it so customizable!  We have their shredded latex pillows for my husband and I and we love them!  My girls have the kapok pillows and love them!  They even have toddler pillows. *Use Coupon Code: GGG25 for 25% off!  Shop White Lotus Home here!

 

Branch Basics-

This is the perfect gift for someone who may not have switched over to natural cleaning products but wants too!  Cleaning products can be so toxic!  Branch Basics makes it so easy to make the switch.  You can buy products individually or in sets.  It’s so nice to get the whole set for someone then they won’t have to think twice about switching over their products.  Check out Branch Basics here!  20% off all starter kits with code: GURLGONEGREE.

360  Cookware-

This has become my favorite when it comes to cookware. This nontoxic cookware has exceeded all my expectations.  It’s the king of cookware you will have for the rest of your life.  An heirloom collection.  The absolute safest stainless steel cookware I’ve found.  I have a full review on what makes it different here.  I can’t recommend it enough. I have the 3.5 Quart Saucepan, the 6 Quart Stainless Steel Stock Pot Slow Cooker, and the Stainless Steel 8.5 in. Fry Pan.  Needless to say after using them I want to add more to my collection!  Check out the full collection here.  Use coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN25 to save 25% off!

 

Caraway Cookware-

This is a ceramic coated cookware.  It makes the transition to nontoxic cooking so easy.  However, I don’t think these last as long as the 360 Cookware.  The 360 Cookware you will have for the rest of your life.  The Caraway definitely has knicks on my pots and pans now, which I don’t love.  I cook a lot and have a family so if you don’t have a family your cooking for these might be a good option.  I love how easy they are to use but I wish they held up a little better.  Check out my full review here.  Check out Caraway here! 

 

Excalibur Dehydrator-

Another gadget I can’t live without!  I use this all the time for raw veggie bread and kale chips.  Also for dehydrating nuts.  I love that it keeps the nutrients intact because I can keep the temp so low.  An oven just does’t go that low.  You can get great deals off Amazon! Take your health to the next level!  Get it here!

 

Cuisinart 14 Cup Food Processor-

This food processor is amazing.  I got it last spring and I’m not sure how I lived without it.  I thought I could use my blender for everything but really the food processor is different and does things the blender can’t because of it’s wide bowl.  I use this for my raw veggie breads, more on that below, making paleo granola, bars, hummus, random recipes- so much!  Shop my food processor here!

 

Soda Stream Glass Sparkling Water Maker-

This has been a game changer for us!  My hubs and I love sparkling water but don’t want to buy it in plastic bottles or buy a ton of glass bottles.  This solves the solution!  It makes sparkling water in seconds and it’s with glass bottles not plastic.  I love that my water is filtered too!  The best of both worlds.  We use this all the time and add fresh lemon or lime juice and even some liquid stevia at times too.  Get your Soda Stream here!

 

Almond Cow Nut Milk Maker-

This nut milk maker has changed my life!  It literally makes the best nut milk in less than a minute.  I’ve never had nut milk so creamy and delicious.  It does it all for you from straining, and grinding.  You rinse the container and colander and you’re done.  Trust me- worth every penny! They are having their once a year sale on Cyber Monday- so wait to buy until then! 🙂 Shop here!

 

Oster Titanium Infused Waffle Maker-

If you follow me on my stories then you’ve heard me rave about this waffle maker!  It’s not made with teflon and is nontoxic.  I used to not make waffles because there wasn’t a great toxic free option.  But now there is!  Plus, it’s so inexpensive.  Get it here!

 

Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser-

This is the essential oil diffuser I have and love!  It looks modern and blends well into decor.  I like that it isn’t plastic and has 3 hour continuous or 7 hour interval settings. Plus, you can get it on Amazon! Get it here!

 

My Green Mattress-

This organic mattress company is it when it comes to organic mattresses that are budget friendly and comfortable. I can’t recommend them enough!  We have the Natural Escape and love it.  Sometimes an organic mattress just seems impossible to get because the price is so high. But My Green Mattress makes it so easy! $250 off their certified organic mattresses and 20% off on all accessories from November 13th – 30th with code: HOLIDAY.   Shop all of My Green Mattress here!

 

The Sill-

My sister originally introduced me to this company and I’ve been hooked ever since.  They are indoor potted plants delivered to your door. This is the perfect gift!  I’ve sent this as a gift and my friend loved it!  They do such a good job with the whole presentation and quality of plants is awesome.  Can’t recommend them enough!  Shop The Sill here!

1. Madewell Beanies- 

I’m obsessed with these beanies!  If you follow me on Instagram stories then you know I can’t stop wearing these!  They not only are super comfortable and keep my head warm, but they are so chic looking.  They come in a variety of colors too.  I have the recycled cotton beanie in neon flamingo and love it.  I also have the wool cuffed beanie in desert from last year and it’s still one of my faves.  A great stocking stuffer too!  Check them all out here.

 

2. Beautycounter All Bright C Serum 

This is vitamin C serum really takes your skin to the next level.  Any women(or let’s be honest man) would be so excited to get this!  It is uses two forms of stable vitamin C and is formulated in such a way that it doesn’t lose it’s potency like many vitamin C products.  It not only protects your skin from environmental damage, helps to fight fine lines and wrinkles but gives your skin an overall brightness with camu camu and turmeric.  I can’t recommend this enough!  I use it first thing in the morning.  Get it here!

 

 

 

 

3. Madewell Jeans

These are my favorite jeans!  They are so comfortable.  If you have never tried them, I encourage you to pick up a pair for yourself!  Not only are they just comfy, and chic but they are made from 97% organic cotton, and 3% recycled elastane Candiani denim.  They also are made at a Fair Trade Certified Facility, ensuring the working conditions for the workers and equal pay for workers.  It’s really the best of both worlds!  They have so many styles too.  Sometimes it can be hard to shop for jeans but gift cards are a great option too. I have several pairs of this style of jean.  Check out all the jeans here! 

 

 

4. Patagonia Sherpa Vest

Fleece is still going strong this year and I’m so here for it!  I love how cozy these feel, yet still feel a little more chic than throwing on a sweatshirt.  This is one item I haven’t actually bought but is on my Christmas list! 🙂 They have so many colors to choose from but I love the color el cap khaki color.  Check them all out here.

5. Suede Booties-

I’ve seen so many bloggers model these shoes!  The’ve been on my Christmas list for a while. 🙂  I even tried them on at a Nordstrom.  So chic looking and literally go with so many outfits.  I love how they have a little heel too.  The color cloud suede is what I’ve been eyeing!  Check out all the colors here.

 

6. Beuti Sleep Elixir Oil-

I was introduced to Beuti Skincare a couple months back and didn’t think much until I started to use their Beauty Sleep Elixir Oil product and was wowed. The Sleep Elixir feels rich on the skin but not overly oily.  It sinks right into my complexion and leaves it feeling dewy and with a glow.  I’ve never read so many rave reviews about an oil- for real!  It has over 305 on Credo Beauty’s website.  It’s definitely a fan favorite.  I apply it at night after cleansing and toning and in the morning after cleansing and toning.  It’s made especially for sensitive skin tooThen I did a deep dive into the brand to discover more and had to share an official Beuti Skincare review with you.  I then learned that Princess Kate loves the Beauty Sleep Elixir too- not surprised!  Get it here.

 

7. Water Bottle

I love this water bottle!  I’ve had it for a year which is a long time for me and I still love it!  It hits all the marks.  It’s glass, holds 32 ounces of water and has a wide mouth cap so it’s easy to clean.  It really helps me drink all my water everyday.  Plus, it’s a steal on Amazon!  Get it here.

 

8. Purity Coffee

The purest coffee!  Not only is the coffee organic but mold and mycotoxin free and tastes amazing.  This is hands down the best coffee- no joke.  You can get subscriptions too so you never forgot to order your favorite coffee!  They also have coffee sachets too.  It’s like a tea bag but filled with coffee.  Makes it great for travel! Check them out here.

 

9. Slippers

I’m a total slipper gal all the way!  I’ve had two slippers that I really love.  Ugg slip on slippers and Mahabis slippers.  Out of the two I would choose Ugg slippers because they are cozier and just easy to slip on.  Mahabis are nice too but they aren’t as cozy as Ugg and not as convenient to slip on.  However, the Mahabis slippers are a lot more chic looking overall.  These are the Ugg slippers I have in the color chestnut suede.  These are the Mahabis slippers.

 

10. Underwear-

These are not organic- sorry but I haven’t found any organic thong underwear that I love!  I’m a thong girl and these ones are everything.  They don’t show when you wear them under pants, even yoga pants. I give mine a little stretch when I first get them so they aren’t pinching me anywhere.  I also wash them in EM1.  It removes any chemicals on them.  Check them out here.

11. 360 Cookware 

This nontoxic cookware has exceeded all my expectations.  It’s the king of cookware you will have for the rest of your life.  An heirloom collection.  The absolute safest stainless steel cookware I’ve found.  I have a full review on what makes it different here.  I can’t recommend it enough. I have the 3.5 Quart Saucepan, the 6 Quart Stainless Steel Stock Pot Slow Cooker, and the Stainless Steel 8.5 in. Fry Pan.  Needless to say after using them I want to add more to my collection!  Check out the full collection here.  Use coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN25 to save 25% off!

12. Blankets- 

I discovered these blankets from Target this fall and have quickly become obsessed!  They are soft, great size- the perfect throw blanket and they’re OEKO-TEX certified. The material may not be grown organically but they are tested for unhealthy chemicals in the final product.  These often tend to be a little less expensive and easier to find.  It’s a world wide certification and really does hold a lot of weight.  So when I see it on a product I know there’s been some thought into the whole production process.  Check out the blankets here!

13. Low EMF Hair Dryer-

I’ve been wanting this for quite some time.  My hair dryer finally gave out and I knew it was time to upgrade to the Elchim.  As a former hairstylist I have had my fair share of hair dryers in my day.  Having learned more about EMF’s I also knew I wanted one that wasn’t going to give off high EMFs.  I had researched about hair dryers and came across the Elchim.  Not only is it a high quality hair dryer- it’s made in Italy which is always a good sign, but it gives off low EMFs as well.  As I’ve learned more and more about EMFs it was really important to me to get a low EMF hair dryer. Since I blow dry my hair fairly often I knew I wanted to decrease my overall exposure as much as I could.  I found with many low EMF dryers you were either getting low EMF and horrible hair dryer quality or higher EMF and great hair dryer quality.  I of course wanted the best of both and I think I found it!  Elchim not only produces some of the lowest EMFs for a hair dryer but it actually performs by being fast drying, quiet, lighter weight and powerful.  It has 2 air speed options and 3 temperature settings.  It has a ceramic and ionic system that helps to dry hair quickly and close the cuticle.  My hair is shiny and bouncy!  The drying time is 30% less than the average hair dryer.  I’m basically obsessed with it!  If you’re in the market for a new hair dryer- look no further!  Get it here.

14. Countertime Travel Set

If you’ve followed me for a hot minute then you know I’m obsessed with Beautycounter’s Countertime line.  Well, now you can get it in a travel set!  It’s the cutest, chicest set.  They launched it in July of this year but it sold out and now they’re brining it back for the holidays!  Anyone would be over the moon to get to sample this plant-derived retinol line.  It’s specifically made to combat signs of fine lines and wrinkles with plant-derived retinol, antioxidants, and peptides.  Plus, it’s so hydrating!  Check it out here.

15. Lead Free White Dishes

I was on the hunt for white dishes that were not only simplistic and chic but lead free as well!  These hit all the marks and I absolutely love them.  Did you know most dishes are filled with lead?  If you’re eating on it everyday it can really build up.  These dishes are lead free!  Plus, they are easy to stack, not super heavy and don’t take up a ton of room.  I have the winter frost white large plates, salad plates and bowls.  I also bought the winter frost white versa meal bowl and we use them all the time!  We have open shelving and they look so good on the shelves.  

16. Blue Light Blocking Glasses

I don’t know what I would do without my blue light blocking glasses!  I love these. They are crucial for me as I spend so much time on the computer  They put less strain on your eyes and eliminate headaches from digital eye strain.  Blue light from screens can disrupt are natural circadian rhythm and upset are bodies natural way of winding down.  These are great to wear if you work on the computer or at night when looking at screens.  These are the style I have.  Bonus they look super chic too! 

17. Minted-

I love everything Minted does.  From holiday cards, stationary, framed art, framed photos- I use them every year for our holiday cards and I’m always so happy with them.  I also love their framed art!  I have so many photos I’ve had done from them, and independent artist art too. Check out Minted here!

18. GHD Flatiron

This award winning flat iron is the best.  I love how smooth it gets my hair and how it doesn’t pull my hair when I curl my hair with it too. It hits all the marks and is still my fave after all these years.  Check it out here!

19. Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser-

This is the essential oil diffuser I have and love!  It looks modern and blends well into decor.  I like that it isn’t plastic and has 3 hour continuous or 7 hour interval settings.  Get your Vitruvi here!

20. Alpyn Beauty Huckleberry 8-acid peel-

This mask from Alpyn Beauty has been taking up some serious residence in my beauty routine since it came out!  It leaves your skin smooth, hydrated and soft- all within 5 minutes.  It’s a mini facial in a jar.  I mean what more could a woman want?  Perfect before putting on makeup for the day or at night to unwind. Plus, it smells so good you might be tempted to eat it!  You’ve been warned. Get it here!
