Best Online Green Beauty Retailer: Pharmaca

Best Online Green Beauty Retailer: Pharmaca

I’m back with the best online green beauty retailer: Pharmaca!  I give a monthly haul report and I missed a couple months due to summer craziness!  But I’m back and I’m giving you a full review on my last two Pharmaca orders.  If you’re not familiar with Pharmaca let me fill you in on this amazing online green beauty retailer.  It has all your heart could want when it comes to clean and natural beauty but also organic living in general!  Keep reading below to get the full scoop.

Want to find out why I can’t get enough of this one stop natural shopping store?  Then keep reading!

1st- Pharmaca carries QUALITY products.

Yes, you read that right.  It’s not some retailer selling random things.  They carry all the big name green beauty brands, natural living brands and supplement brands.  Plus, their selection is amazing!

2nd- It’s all in ONE place.

No more going back and forth between five websites trying to get green beauty brands in one place and supplements in another.  Now, you can just do it all at once and save yourself some precious time.

3rd- Shopping at Pharmaca SAVES you money.

Yes, you heard me right!  They are always having a great sale or gift with purchase.  Plus, you get free shipping after $35- hello.  Most retailers are $50 and higher.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to their website to purchase something and was amazed to find they also carried another one of my products too.  Pharmaca has made my life more streamlined and easier as a mom and fellow natural living enthusiast.

Here are some products you can find at Pharmaca:

Some green beauty brands I love that they carry are:

Every month I’m working with Pharmaca to show you what you can get for $100(it’s pretty incredible).  Here is this month’s order:

Inika Organic Baked Mineral Blush Duo(in the color Pink Tickle)-

I’ve quickly fallen for anything and everything Inika Organic!  Their products speak for themselves.  This is the first time I’ve tried one of their baked Mineral Blushes.  This blush is so pretty.  It has a mix of blush rose pink and a soft peach hue.  A great mix!  I love that it’s a pressed blush.  Makes it so easy to use and less messy.  The blush color is very light and subdued.  It really gives an overall natural look.  I like layering this blush on top of a cream blush.  This helps the blush last longer and gives it a little glow too!  A great blush for anyone who likes an overall soft, understated look.  Get your blush here!

Inika Organic Liquid Foundation(in the color nude)-

This foundation had me at first swipe!  I really can’t get over it.  It goes on so smooth, doesn’t look cakey and lasts the whole day.  I tried their bb cream but I prefer their liquid foundation over it.  It makes your skin look so dewy and lit from within.  I would apply it with my fingers or a foundation brush.  It blends so easily into the skin.  A great foundation for those with dry to normal skin types. Grab your foundation here!

Stasher Bags-

If you’ve followed me for a hot minute you know I’m a huge fan of these silicone bags!  Can’t go wrong with them.  They are made of silicone and not plastic, so you’re not wasting plastic bags and you’re helping the environment by not using plastic-a win/win!  I store anything and everything in them.  I put them in the freezer too!  There really isn’t a wrong way to use them.  I love that they’re dishwasher safe too! Get your stasher bags here!

Juice Beauty Sport  Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF30-

I was excited to try a new sunscreen this summer.  I love a good mineral based sunscreen and this one by Juice Beauty did not disappoint!  It is packed full the natural mineral zinc oxide which helps block the sun without the harmful chemicals.  It does go on a bit whiter, which is typical of mineral based sunscreens. But sometimes I prefer that when applying to my kiddos.  It helps me to see where I’ve applied it and I find they don’t burn as easily.  This sunscreen stood the test of pool days quite well!  Can’t recommend it enough, get it here! 

100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask-

I love these masks! They can wake up any tired eyes.  Plus, they are great at de-puffing and minimizing dark circles.  You apply them underneath your eyes and it instantly feels cooling and refreshing.  The eye gels are made from a combination of aloe vera gel and plant cellulose.  I love bringing these with me on trips, and also for early mornings when my eyes need a little bit of help.  Trust me- you’ll be hooked!  Grab your eye mask here!

100% Luminous Primer-

This primer is one of my very favorites in green beauty- it’s so good!  It hydrates the skin but also smoothes it out, providing a perfect base before makeup.  I apply this after my morning lotion or oil.  I then apply my foundation.  It goes on so evenly and helps my foundation last for the whole day.  If you’ve been looking for a green beauty primer- this one is so good! Get your 100% Luminous Primer here!

Alaffia Everyday Shea Body Wash-

This is such a good value!  It has great clean ingredients but doesn’t break the bank.  I love that it comes in a pump bottle.  I use this on the girls.  It hardly has a smell at all, just a light vanilla mint scent from essential oils.  This lasts us for several months.  It suds up well too!  If you feel like you go through body wash really quick- this is a great purchase!  Get your Alaffia Everyday Shea Body Wash here!

ZuZu Luxe Lipstick in Starlet-

This lipstick is another great value for a green beauty lipstick.  It goes on so smooth and doesn’t bleed.  I love the color!  A cool candy apple red.  The perfect statement lip for those days when you want to look pulled together but don’t want to do a full face of makeup.  Check out all their other colors here!

Products I actually bought as a Beauty Blogger

Products I actually bought as a Beauty Blogger

So want to know the products I actually bought as a beauty blogger?! Well, I’m about to divulge.  It’s no secret I get sent a lot of product.  As a beauty blogger it’s both one of the perks and a necessity to stay in the know of what’s working and what’s not.  However, there are products that I buy myself because they’re just so good and because I’m not above buying product myself.

I wanted to share my current picks with you in hopes you might find something you like as well.  These are tried and true faves that never get old.  But are necessary staples in my green beauty arsenal!  I’ve got a little of everything, something for skin, hair and makeup.   Keep reading to find out what I can’t get enough of!

Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask-

If you’ve been around green beauty for even a hot minute you’ve heard of Leahlani Skincare.  Where would green beauty be without Leahlani Skincare?!  But really, it’s true.  I just can’t get enough of their Mermaid Mask and I know I’m not alone.  This mask is all around lovely.  Upon opening the frosted glass jar you’re greeted with the smell of the Hawaiian Islands where this decent skincare line is created.  I can just feel all the love that goes into each jar.  The formula is still handmade by Leah, the founder.  This beauty mask is filled with raw honey, spirulina, chlorella, green microalgae, kaolin sea clay and a plethora of wonderful flower oils.  It was the first green beauty mask I tried and saw a noticeable difference in my skin instantly.  My skin was glowing!  Not only that but my skin felt hydrated and decongested.  My skin is less red, and more even after using.  If you’ve been on the fence about purchasing a facial mask- just do it and snag this one!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  A serious skin treat!  It’s also a great gift too!  Get your Leahlani Mermaid Mask here!

Osmia Organics Soap-

Again, another brand staple in green beauty.  Just the name sounds sexy doesn’t it?!  The founder Sarah is an ER doctor and really knows her stuff.  If you’ve seen her describe her soaps then you’ve probably bought one!  She makes them sound irresistible and then you buy one and realize she was absolutely right!  I was never a bar soap girl until the first day I laid eyes on an Osmia bar soap and I was sold.  First, the packaging is so luxe.  Wrapped in a partially-recycled, watercolor paper and hemp twine that is all biodegradable and compostable.  You’ll love the soap before you even use it.  Then once you unwrap it, you see this beautiful bar of soap with these waves at the top.  It’s just a thing of beauty.  All the soaps are made with organic and natural plant butters, organic and wildcrafted herbs, high quality organic oils and organic or wildcrafted essential oils.  Great lengths go to making this so much more than just a bar of soap and that’s why I just can’t stray from them.  There’s nothing artificial in these soaps!  They have seasonal scents that come out throughout the year and their staples too.  One of their staples I always have to have on hand is their coffee mint soap.  SO good.  Use it in the morning and you just may not need your morning cup of coffee!  I also love to sample the seasonal scents.  I just picked up a bar from their Spring Collection, and it’s all around lovely!  Get your Osmia bar soap here!

Aila Beauty Nail Polish-

My nails can’t stop sporting Aila nail polish for good reason- it’s the best!  The color and pigment in the polish is so vibrant.  It’s easy to apply and is long lasting.  Plus, I love the color selection.  My favorite is Bodega, but I also love I’m Naked, I’m Naked and Namaste.  Some nail polish can feel goopy and hard to work with but not Aila- it glides on the nails.  I bring this with me when I have my nails done and they love the formula!  The founder, Dr. Cary Gannon knows her stuff as a Board Certified Podiatric Surgeon.  She wanted to create a nail polish line that not only worked but also was free of the common harmful toxins lurking in conventional nail polish.  Well she did it and I can’t get enough.  Besides her nail polish colors, I’m also addicted to her better than gel topcoat.  It keeps my nails chip free for 5 days!  And it rates a 1 on EWG!  Get your Aila Nail Polishes here!

Also, check out all my favorites from Aila Beauty and why you want to avoid certain ingredients in nail polish- read my full review here!

Josh Rosebrook Styling Cream-

This styling cream is a favorite for my hubs and I.  He loves how it gives hold to his hair and definition without the “wet” look.  I love using it after I’ve curled my hair to add separation and texture.  It offers the hold but doesn’t get crunch or leave my hair feeling too greasy or weighed down- which I love! The ingredients are so pure too and even help stimulate and feed your scalp for optimal hair growth.  Plus, it smells so good, with essential oils of cardamom, peach and fennel.  My hubs can’t not have this and I feel the same!  Grab your Styling Cream here!

Also, check out all my favorites from Josh Rosebrook- Read my full review here! 

Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation-

This foundation is different than any other foundation I’ve used.  It’s actually a facial serum and foundation in one.  It comes in a bottle with a dropper.  Not only are you putting on a great foundation everyday, but nutrient vitamins your skin will drink up.  The serum doesn’t feel oily like you might think.  But it feels similar to a really watered down, thin paint.  I applied a few drops onto my fingers, and applied it on my face-quite like I would a facial serum.  Once it came in contact with my skin it dries, and creates this flawless finish.  It’s a matte finish but not dry looking.  The foundation covered redness, and gave my skin an overall pulled together look.  However, it looked like I wasn’t wearing anything-which I loved!  It gives you a polished look, but looks very natural at the same time.  Doesn’t every woman want that?  My skin can breathe and it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing a mask.  I also, love how it doens’t feel dry at all, and it looks just as good after a full day.  A little goes a long way too!  I love having this on hand to mix with other foundations too.  If you’re looking for a foundation that makes you feel comfortable in your own skin, then this is it.  I’m wearing the color 3.5.  Get your Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation here!
