Sharing my best winter beauty hacks with you in my newest video. As the seasons change it’s easy important to switch up your skincare and makeup routines. The products you used for the fall or even summer aren’t going to cut it for winter. No one wants to have skin that cracks or is really dry. So many simple tips can help keep your skin glowing and smooth. I’m sharing them all in this latest video.
From what creams and balms do for the skin in the winter and why their essential for glowing skin. I also cover how to keep your lips smooth, the power of exfoliation, choosing a moisturizing foundation and what a cream blush can do for your overall makeup look. There’s so much goodness in this video. I recommend products for each winter beauty hack too!
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 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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Josh Rosebrook and Ilia are both natural beauty favorites among many!
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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!
Innersense takes the cake when it comes to natural beauty styling products.
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!
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!
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’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!
Maya Chia’s Skincare products are some of the best in clean beauty.
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!

Sharing my full review on Josh Rosebrook’s new Serum Spray!
Organic Beauty Products- August is here! Is it just me or did summer fly by? As much as I love summer, I’m SO ready for fall and to meet this little babe! 6 weeks out- crazy.
So this month I have some new products and some old ones as well that I’m sharing with you. I should say I rediscovered some old products! I forgot how awesome they were. Trust me, it happens when you’re a clean beauty blogger!

These new Honest Beauty Liquid Lipsticks are giving me all the feels!
This was an easy one to include in my organic beauty products- August roundup! These are a new product for Honest Beauty. They are highly pigmented like a lipstick, but go on similar to a gloss and come in a tube form. They give your lips some nice sheen too. I love how high impact they look on your lips! They come in 7 colors and are super hydrating too. I was really impressed by the longevity as well, they lasted for a good 6 hours on my pout! And the kicker? They’re $12.99!! I mean talk about a steal. Get them here!
Ok, I still get this question all the time- “What’s your favorite natural mascara?” I feel like a broken record but it’s Honest Beauty through and through. Why do I love it so much? It separates my lashes, gives them volume, and doesn’t smudge on me. I don’t have raccoon eyes by the end of the night and I get compliments on my lashes all the time- I’m telling you, this mascara doesn’t mess around! It has a primer on one end and the black pigment on the other. The primer definitely helps give your lashes some extra volume and length.
I also use this Beautycounter Mattifying Powder to give my lashes an extra boost of vavoom every now and then too. I just use an eyeshadow brush and apply it right on top of my lashes after I’ve applied a couple coats of mascara. Then I go back and apply more mascara on top to make them really stand out. This mascara is only $14.99! I guess maybe this August clean beauty roundup should also be called best budget clean beauty! Get the mascara here!
These new W3ll People Nudist Shadow Palettes are the perfect everyday eyeshadows.
These are a new release from W3ll People. They come in a palette with 5 different eyeshadow colors. I love that they have matte and shimmer shadows in them. Sometimes I’m feeling matte and sometimes I want something a little more pumped up. One palette is violet hued and the other is taupe. Both equally gorgeous colors! I definitely am drawn more to the taupe palette. It has basics for everyday wear or for kicking it up later on. A great palette to take you from day to night. PLUS, these palettes are so budget friendly! You get an entire eyeshadow palette for $25! I’m definitely hitting it out of the park this month when it comes to going easy on the wallet- your welcome! 😉 Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN for 10% off!Check out the palettes here!
I’ve been wearing this blush and loving it! It’s not a new find but one that I definitely can’t get enough of lately. It gives the perfect hint of blush color with some slight shimmer. I’m not talking teenage glitter makeup but a mature glow look. It’s so pretty even in the package! I love the color Lily, it’s the perfect punch of color without being too dramatic. No more dull, lifeless blush! This will make you glow from the inside out. Check it out at Pharmaca.com and save 20%! Get it here!
Some oldie’s but goodies- these two have been taking up residence in my makeup bag lately!
This is another oldie but goodie! First of all it’s pressed, which is nothing short of awesome- who wants to deal with bronzer everywhere. But it’s also a pretty taupe color and not orange. I’m partial to the Miami Beach color but it also comes in several other colors too depending on how dark you want to go. And get this, another budget find! I know it’s kind of awesome this month for saving a little money. Check it out here!
Best exfoliator in green beauty- active enzyme exfoliator by Josh Rosebrook!
Still my favorite exfoliator. Gets my skin super smooth and clean. Haven’t found anything else like it. This exfoliator uses a mechanical exfoliant of walnut shells, and also an enzyme exfoliant. Not only does my skin feel smooth after but it looks brighter! It is chockfull of plant oils and active honey- a serious treat for the skin. I’ve tried to pinpoint the smell and I’ve come to the conclusion it smells like black licorice to me-which I love or used too…haha. I apply this to slightly damp skin and then I massage a small nickel size amount all over my face. I let it set for 15 minutes, I found that’s my sweet spot. But you can do it up to an hour. This is another must have! If you’ve been looking for an exfoliant that leaves your skin feeling smooth but also looking bright-this is it. Get it here!
Foot File And Pumice Stone
Ok, this might be random but this is something I use literally every time I shower and I realized I’ve never told you about it! Especially in the summer my feet can get pretty nasty. Being outside, and barefoot and just in elements can do a number on the feet. Before I get in the shower I’ll file down any calluses I have with the foot file and then once I’m in the shower I take the pumice stone and add some soap to it. Then I scrub the bottom of my feet with the pumice stone. I’ve found my feet will get rough and dirty and this helps to really smooth things out and keep them looking clean. I’m obsessed! If you have feet that could use a little tlc between pedicures this will be your best friend! Get the foot file here and the pumice stone here!
That sums up my organic beauty products- August edition! Want to see some of my past favorites from previous months? Check them out below!

All the it brands from Kosas Lipstick, Kari Gran Lip Whips and Ecobrow at Credo Beauty.
This is a new favorite of mine! It literally takes me a minute to do my brows- which is pretty awesome. I really wanted to find a natural brow pencil for my readers because a lot of them struggled with brow gels. I really love Beautycounter’s Brow Gel but I know for some the application can be tricky. I really wanted something straightforward for people. This Ecobrow Defining Crayon is it!
It looks natural and doesn’t look fake or drawn on like so many eyebrow pencils can. One end is the crayon and the other end is the spooly for brushing the product through the hairs. I wear the color Penelope but I’m getting the color Liz in the mail too- I think I might need something a little more ashy. Penelope has a touch of redness. I’ll keep you posted. They offer 6 colors so you’re bound to find one that works for you. This comes in at $26! Check them out here!
Jade rolling is where it’s at if you want to reduce facial puffiness, remove toxins and soften fine lines.
I’m a huge fan of facial rolling! It really works. It helps to get the lymphatic system moving, and flush out toxins. It also helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles. As it gets the lymphatic system moving you will notice less puffiness and overall more radiant complexion. All it takes is 5 minutes in the morning. I apply my favorite oil all over my skin. Then start my facial massage. Watch this video on how to use the jade roller if unsure. I love how she explains what it’s doing. Not only does my whole complexion look more awake but also less puffy and tired looking. Bonus: my facial oil really gets to seep in my skin! This is $28. Get a facial roller here!
This was an easy one to add to my budget friendly organic beauty at Credo roundup. Say goodbye to puffy eyes and dark circles with these eye gels! Not only do they help to minimize unwanted bloat under the eyes but they also brighten the whole eye area. I love using these first thing in the morning. I apply them right before I start brushing my teeth. My eyes feel more awake and vribrant. These are especially great for travel! Airplanes are so dehydrating and can really suck all the moisture right out of you. These are great to do while flying or when you land for an extra surge of moisture. One of my secret weapons to looking awake even with small kiddos. They’re $12. Get them here!
This is one of Ilia’s newer products and I’ve fallen hard for it. The formula comes in a tube and is perfect for under the eye area. It instantly hides dark circles and brightens the whole area. I just dab a few swabs under my eyes and then blend in. It doesn’t look cakey at all! Something I’ve found is hard to find in a concealer. I also love it for helping to hide hyper pigmentation and highlighting and contouring on my face. I’ll apply some down the bridge of my nose, and then right in the middle of my forehead and cupids bow for an all over brightening effect. It’s like a highlighter and concealer in one! I wear the color Yucca. Only $30! Check them out here!
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! You can get them for $28- Check them out here!
Natural shampoo and conditioner that works can be pretty spendy. It’s hard to find brands that deliver great results with a natural shampoo and conditioner but also are effective. Ursa Major’s Go Easy Shampoo and Conditioner is the exception. I tried them out a while back and was really impressed with the formula and results. Not only did my hair feel clean but the price tag wasn’t as high as some others and it lasted me a while. My hubs liked it too! It doesn’t smell super feminine either but light and fresh. My hair had body and bounce and no extra oil. A total win! You can get it for $26. Check it out here!
Innersense I create Lift is the best volumizer in clean beauty and this Herbivore Sea Mist is a sea salt mist that adds amazing texture.
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! $28- you can get it here!
I definitely had to add this to my budget friendly organic beauty credo roundup. This sea salt spray really lives up to it’s name. It gives hair that beachy vibe instantly. I love using it after curling my hair. It brings some definition and hold to my style and makes the curls look less perfect. It comes in two scents- coconut and lavender. I’m partial to the coconut smell! Especially great for adding lots of texture to lifeless hair. And it’s only $12! Snag one here!
If you’ve been looking for a shave cream, look no more. This shave cream keeps my legs silky smooth with no razor burn! It also keeps them feeling super soft for days. I love that the scent is mild and just smells fresh. It really is great for even the most sensitive skin types. Even on Credo Beauty they have 33 reviews that add up to a rating of 4.8- pretty awesome! $24- Get the shave cream here!
I’ve been a fan of Kari Gran Lip Whips for as long as I can remember- seriously. They are just a staple in my routine. They are the one product that really can keep my lips hydrated. I love the naked peppermint one. It’s essentially colorless and smells like- you guess it, peppermint. They come in frosted glass jars and look like little jars of decadent frosting. You can get tinted versions too. Not only do you have a pop of color but some serious hydration as well! $20- Get them here!
