Natural Beauty Favorites

Natural Beauty Favorites

Sharing my natural beauty favorites on the blog today!  I thought what a perfect time to share some of my favorite natural beauty favorites on the blog since two of my favorite natural beauty stores are having their friends and family sales!  You get 20% off essentially everything at their stores- talk about a deal!

I wanted to give you a peak into what I would buy at each store and items you can only get at each.  Sometimes it can seem overwhelming when you’re looking at buying clean beauty products.  I often hear, where do I start?  No worries, I’ve got you covered!  I’m sharing my absolute favorites right here.  Tried and true products that work.  After switching over to natural beauty 9 years ago I’ve learned what products deliver and what don’t.  

I’m going to be covering hair products, skincare products, makeup and everything else in between.  Leave me a comment below if you’re not sure what to order, or need help deciding on a color.

 

Credo Beauty-

Credo Beauty is one of my favorite online natural beauty retailers.  They have it all when it comes to clean and effective products.  They’re like the Sephora of clean beauty.  All the “IT” brands in one place!  The Sale ends on Sunday 11/10!

 

Here are some of my favorite products that I shop for at Credo Beauty:

 

clean beauty favorites

African Botanics is one of the best when it comes to delivering skincare results!

 

 African Botanics- 

You can’t find this brand at The Detox Market, so it’s nice that Credo offers it.  This brand really speaks for itself with it’s products.  They deliver results!  I love so many of them.  From their Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish, to their Marula Resurrection Eye Cream, to Fleurs D’ Afrique Intensive Recovery Face Oil, to their Resurrection Cell Recovery Serum- basically every product I’ve tried has been gold!  I can’t recommend them enough.  They are a heftier price tag so to be able to snag them at 20% off is amazing!  Get them here!

 

Khus Khus-

This is another brand that isn’t at The Detox Market.  I love their body waxes.  They are hydrating and soothing.  Depending on what your body needs, they treat the skin.  I love their Bleu Body Wax.  It uses blue tansy and blue yarrow to help soothe the skin.  It smells amazing too!  It melts right into your skin.  Can’t get enough!  I also love their Sen Face Serum.  It was in my best of clean beauty 2018!  The face oil sinks right into your skin and nourishes it and leaves my skin glowing in the morning.  Check out all of Khus Khus products here!

 

Marie Veronique-

This natural skincare line combines modern science with the natural ingredients found in nature.  I love this line because it really aims to solve skincare problems and not just be another natural skincare line.  It’s effective and natural- the best of both worlds!  I love so many products from them.  From their Soothing B3 Serum that has 10% Niacinamide- a natural form of vitamin B that helps with acne and inflammatory skincare conditions, Barrier Lipid Complex- this helps to restore the barrier function of the skin, something that is often missing when your skin is inflamed.  I also love their oil cleanser.  It’s unlike any oil cleanser I’ve used. It not only is an oil but slightly emulsifies when mixed with water to form a subtle foam.  They even have an E.O. free version for those that can’t do essential oils.  Check out all their products here!

 

Ilia-

This makeup line is a definite fave in clean beauty!  It combines the sought after pigments from conventional beauty with clean ingredients.  Their liquid True Skin Serum Foundation is one of my absolute favorite foundations in clean beauty.  It performs so well and looks so natural on the skin.  I also love their Liquid Light Serum Highlighter. It gives the skin a radiant glow. Their True Skin Radiant Priming Serum is another favorite as well.  It provides a smooth canvas for your whole complexion before foundation.  Check out all of Ilia Beauty here!

 

Clean beauty favorites

Josh Rosebrook and Ilia are both natural beauty favorites among many!

 

Josh Rosebrook-

I mean what’s not to love about Josh Rosebrook!  His products have a cult following and for good reason.  They perform!  My favorites are his Active Enzyme Exfoliant, his Hair Spray, Serum Spray, Cacao Antioxidant Mask and Vital Balm Cream. To have used a Josh Rosebrook product is to love it!  His Active Enzyme Exfoliant is hands down the go to exfoliant for clean beauty bloggers and lovers.  His hair spray is the best natural hair spray I’ve used in clean beauty…like I said his products standout.  I love that Credo Beauty carries all of them. Shop all of Josh Rosebrook products here! 

 

Natural beauty favorites

Tata Harper products deliver!

 

Tata Harper- 

Tata Harper Skincare line is one of those lines that is a hallmark in clean beauty.  It’s been around since almost the beginning.  Effective and natural skincare products that really treat the skin.  I love their clarifying mask- it helps detox the skin, and give it a glow all at the same time.  Last time I was at Credo in San Fran the esthetician there said this mask was her fave!  I was so excited to hear as I always sing it’s praises too.  I also can’t get enough of their Resurfacing Mask.  It literally gets your skin glowing in minutes.  Need to brighten up your face?  This is the mask.  I put it on before a night out, or in the morning to wake my skin up.  I also love their regenerating cleanser.  A bestseller in their line for sure.  It uses BHAs and apricot microspheres to gently buff the skin and get rid of dead skin cells.  Check out all of Tata Harper 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.  I love their Tinted Face Oil- a hydrating spin on foundation that feels light and leaves you glowing.  I also love their 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’m also digging their new lip glosses!  They are more of a serum than a lip gloss feel- which I love. It not only plumps your lips, but hydrates and treats them with nourishing oils.  Check out all of Kosas here!

 

The Detox Market-

The Detox Market has been around since the very beginning and is the first natural beauty store I ever knew of.  I love their wide selection of products and their Detox Box that comes out every month.  The sale lasts through Sunday 11/10- Use Code: GET20.

 

Here are some of my favorite products at The Detox Market:

 

Agent Nateur-

I’m crazy for this deodorant!  Both my hubs and I love it.  I specifically love their Holi Rose Deodorant and my hubs loves their Holi-Man Deodorant.  It really works as a natural deodorant.  I smell fresh all day.  I also love their Holi-Oil Youth Refining Serum.  It sinks into the skin and helps to calm redness, sun spots and hyper-pigmentation with a variety of skin loving oils.  Shop all of Agent Nateur here!

 

RMS Beauty- 

This brand has been around from the beginning of clean beauty.  I love their new foundation, their Un-Cover Up concealer, their lipsticks, their luminizing powder, and Master Mixer.  Their products give your skin a youthful glowing look. You literally look like you’re glowing from the inside out.  Check out all the products here!

 

Natural Beauty Favorites

Innersense takes the cake when it comes to natural beauty styling products.

 

Innersense-

When it comes to hair Innersense knows how to create great products.  I use some many of their styling products on the daily.  I can’t get enough of their I Create Lift Volumizing Foam- it gives my hair lasting volume.  I also love their Inner Peace  Whipped Cream Texturizer for defining my curls after styling and smoothing away frizz without greasiness.  Their I Create Waves Salt Spray is another favorite.  I spray this in my hair after styling and it gives it the beachy look so effortlessly.  Check out all of Innersense here!

 

Laurel-

This skincare brand is squeaky clean, yet entirely effective.  Laurel the founder uses whole plant ingredients that really do change the skin and produce results.  Her products have been featured multiple times in Beauty Heroes Boxes- the it clean beauty box.  I love her Sun Serum, it fades sun spots, nourishes the skin and gives your skin it’s glow back.  I also love her honey berry enzyme mask.  A gentle approach to exfoliation that leaves your skin glowing in minutes.  Her Recovery Balm is another standout product. It’s especially great for even the most sensitive skin types.  It heals and soothes the skin, while hydrating.  Check out all of Laurel products here!

 

Erbaviva-

I love Erbaviva’s products for expecting mama’s and baby.  They are pure and simple in their formulations, yet still products the results I’m looking for.  I really like their baby sunscreen, relax body lotion, and organic lip and cheek balm.  The ingredients are so clean, especially for mama’s and baby skin. Check out their products here!

 

Fitglow Beauty

Fitglow’s formulations are some of the best.  I love how they marry the power of science and natural ingredients to produce products that really perform.  Some of my favorites are their lip serums- it’s similar to a gloss but not goopy and has a little more color pay off similar to a lipstick.  Trust me, everyone loves them!  I also love their concealer, I use it everyday to help conceal redness, imperfections and even out my skin tone.  I also love their night lip serum to help nourish and restore the lips and their Vita-Active Serum- a serum filled with antioxidants.  Check out all of Fitglow Beauty here!

 

Natural Beauty Favorites

Maya Chia’s Skincare products are some of the best in clean beauty.

 

Maya Chia-

This skincare line does no wrong!  I discovered it 3 years ago and haven’t looked back. I love their Super Couple Serum- an incredible antioxidant serum/oil for your skin that transforms it.  I noticed hyper pigmentation fade and an overall glow to my skin.  Also, their Optimist Hydrating Essence is a standout.  The best overall toner in green beauty!  I also love their Highlight of The Day.  It takes the cake for best illuminator.  Brightens and gives your skin a glow.  I also can’t get enough of their Supercritical Omega-3 Chia Face Oil.  It moisturizes like none other.  Perfect for those with extra dry skin.  Check out all of Maya Chia’s products here!

How To Achieve Perfect Brows

How To Achieve Perfect Brows

In today’s video I’m sharing how to achieve perfect brows!  I get asked about my brows multiple times a week, so I thought it was high time I did a video on how to achieve the perfect brow for your face shape.  I walk you through how to shape your brows, what tools to use to shape them, how to pick the best product to fill in your brows and more.  Of course all the products I use in the video to fill in your brows are completely natural!  I’m even bringing on my sister to help me out with this video.  In the video I’m doing her brows to help you see how to achieve perfect brows.  I shape her brows and fill them in.  

Brows aren’t supposed to be complicated.  I’m taking you through the process so you can create your ideal brows on your own.  There are so many different products to make your brows standout.  I’m sharing my favorites in natural beauty.  From a pomade, to an eyebrow gel, to a pencil.  Each one is unique and is meant to be used for certain brows and different brow looks.  I’m walking you through all of this in my latest video.  So many options to help make your brows look their best!

Best Of Clean Beauty October

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!

 

Clean beauty review

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!
