Clean Living

 

SOL Organics down comforter review

SOL Organics down comforter takes sleeping to the next level.

 

 

My Green Mattress

This is such a great affordable organic mattress option. I have the Natural Escape Mattress and love it!  It’s their most luxurious mattress. My hubs even raves about it.  I love My Green Mattress because they’re a budget friendly organic mattress brand. This weekend you can save $200 off their Natural Escape mattress using code: REMEMBER.  Check out their mattresses here!  Read my full review here!

 

SafeSleeve EMF Protection Phone Case

I have a SafeSleeve phone case for my phone and love it. I feel so much better knowing my phone is blocking EMFs from my body.  It’s one simple thing that can make a huge difference.  I also have an iPad case too and it works so well. Check out all the SafeSleeve Cases here!  

 

Berkey

I’ve had the Berkey water filter for many years and I’m super happy with the performance.  It removes bacteria and parasites, heavy metals like lead and mercury, VOCs and toxic chemicals like benzene, chlorine and chromium-6, pesticides, pharmaceutical drugs and more, to levels higher than 99.99%.  The water sits in a stainless steel container on your counter.  When you buy the Berkey water filter you get the black purification elements with it but you have to buy the fluoride filters separately.  The fluoride filters also filter out arsenic too.  Obviously I would recommend buying the fluoride filters!  I have both and have been happy with their performance.  Check out their website and enter your email to get all the details on their sales!  Get a Berkey here!

 

Almond Cow

This is another gadget that I really thought would be unnecessary but I’ve come to love!  It makes creating nut milk so easy.  When I stopped drinking dairy milk I quickly was thrown into the world of non-dairy milks.  When I realized there wasn’t great options to buy I knew I would need to start making my own.  This makes it so easy!  Just add the nuts and water- push a button and then poof!  You’ve got nut milk!  I can’t recommend it enough.  Use Code: GURLGONEGREEN for $15 off.  Shop Almond Cow here.

 

White Lotus Home

Looking for a nontoxic organic mattress?  Maybe organic pillows?  Well look no further- White Lotus Home is your go to store!  I have their pillows for our whole family and we all love them.  You can choose from so many varieties- kapok, latex, organic cotton and more.  Our personal favorites are the latex and the kapok.  My daughter also has their twin Organic Cotton and Wool Foam Dreamton Mattress.  Free of harsh chemicals and fire retardants.  We love it!  Use coupon code: GGG225 for 25% off your order!  Shop all of White Lotus Home here! 

 

SOL Organics

I love my SOL Organics sheets and comforter.  Sheets are one of the worst offenders when it comes to chemicals.  When you think of how much you sleep the toxic load adds up.  Getting organic sheets was a must for my family and I.  I also love their down comforters.  It’s filled with 100% Canadian White Down, that’s responsibly grown and harvested.  It is also 100% GOTS cotton down proof.  It has an even fill and is hypoallergenic.  I love how it lays flat and even, something that my last didn’t do.   We have the summer down, since we tend to run warm at night.  Use SPRING for 25% off!  Shop all of SOL Organics here!

Natural Beauty Box Roundup For May

Natural Beauty Box Roundup For May

It’s that time!  The natural beauty box roundup for May is here!  Every month I get a little giddy peaking into the boxes as I get them in the mail wondering what could be inside.  This month is no different!  Another month brings new brands in clean beauty that I haven’t tried.  I love when the seasons start to change too because then you start to see different products for the seasons.  The sun is starting to shine everywhere and it’s feeling like summer is getting close!

*This month we are seeing boxes from Beauty Heroes and The Detox Market.  I also share about Boxwalla and The Clean Beauty Box but they are bi-monthly boxes, so I only receive them every other month.  

If you want to check out past reviews on those boxes, check them out below:

On to the reviews!  

Up first this month is Beauty Heroes, next will be The Detox Box which you can subscribe to here.

 

Beauty Heroes: Bathing Culture

 

Natural Beauty Box Roundup

Never was there a more perfect time for us to consider the importance of bathing!

 

This is my first time seeing and experiencing Bathing Culture as a brand.  It was founded by two city dwellers who loved going outdoors to explore and get adrenaline highs.  Tim Hollinger and Spencer Arnold wanted to create a business that would both be clean and environmentally friendly.  They did just that!  As they delved into the beauty industry- specifically body wash, they were struck with how toxic it actually was.  They realized they had their work cut out for them and created a gender neutral, regional organic, Rainforest Alliance, personal care products that truly performed.  Oh and did I mention the formulas are housed in biodegradable and reusable bottles?  They really go to the extra milel to create clean products that are both sustainable and truly clean.  They have gone so far as even opening up 50 refill locations and planted a tree for every 5 gallons sold- talk about next level! 

Mind and Body Wash- This month’s heroic product is not just any body wash.  It has organic ingredients that not only cleanse your skin but add hydration with shea butter.  The scent is a blend of balsam, vetiver, ylang ylang, ho wood, and frankincense.  It comes housed in a glass bottle and pump.  (I did want to note on the pump due to the COVID pandemic, the founders have had manufacturing issues supplying the pump.  They have worked tirelessly to try and source more, however, it has been hard to find replacements.  Boxes will be delayed as a result, unless you don’t mind not having a pump and just having a screw top).

Outer Being Face & Body Oil- Inspired by their outdoor adventures, the founders created this face and body oil.  A perfect oil to use all over your body.  Filled with raspberry seed oil, sea buckthorn, and marula seed oil to name a few, this oil truly hydrates the skin.  This helps to continue your bathing ritual after you use the Mind and Body Wash.  It helps to lock in the moisture and keep your skin feeling soft and supple.  A skin treat for sure!

Golden Hour Hydrosol- This hydrosol is filled with Bulgarian Rose Oil, Moroccan Rose Oil, Turkish Rose Oil and hand harvested Moroccan Neroli Flower Oil.  It will take you back to the scent of flowers and the memories they hold.  This is perfect for post sun skin, in the morning to awaken your senses, and as an all over body mist.  It has such an uplifting scent that isn’t over powering.

This box is valued at $127 but you can get it for $58.95!  Get it here! 

 

Detox Box: One Love Organics

 

Natural Beauty Box Roundup

This month’s Detox Box is showing up with One Love Organics!

 

The Detox box for May is all about One Love Organics.  We are seeing their popular Enzyme Cleansing Oil, Vitamin C Facial Serum, and their Botanical A Facial Cleanser.  This brand has been around since the beginning of clean beauty!  They know skincare.

Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil- This cleanser is full of vitamin B complex.  I love how it’s an oil but then when you add water it slightly emulsifies and the formula turns into a milky consistency.  It not only removes my makeup, but everything else too.  My skin is left feeling smooth and hydrated, not stripped at all.  It smells like a tropical paradise with hints of coconut.

Vitamin C Facial Serum- This facial serum it packed with vitamin C and also includes rosehip, baobab, and jojoba oil that transforms dull/lackluster skin into radiant/glowing skin.  I apply it to clean skin that’s still slightly damp.  You can use it in the morning or at night.  I love how rich the oil feels on my skin.  It really feels so nourishing.

Botanical A Facial Cleanser- This facial cleanser contains AHAs, BHAs and wintergreen extract.  It lathers up and helps to cleanse your skin even more.  I start with the Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil and then I follow with this.  It really is the perfect cleanser to really achieve that deep clean feeling.  My skin feels so clean!

You can get all of this- $156 value for $55!  Such a good deal.  I would hop on it now before it sells out!  Get the box here.

Best Natural Beauty And Clean Living Brands

Sharing some of the best natural beauty and clean living brands with you in this blog post.  I really wanted to do something tangible to support some of my favorite natural beauty and living brands.  These brands are all small businesses run by real people trying to make a difference in this world when it comes to natural living.  I wanted to also help my readers in this time as well.  Together we are so much stronger.  This is a phrase I keep thinking on.  It’s not about just helping my family but helping those around me in some way.  One way I know how is to keep supporting the small businesses I’ve come to love over the years.  I know it helps you my audience when you are offered a coupon code when purchasing.

Maya Chia Review

Maya Chia makes natural skincare products that give results!

 

Maya Chia

This natural beauty skincare line has it all!  The all star ingredient in Maya Chia is the supercritical chia oil.  Not only is chia oil heralded for it’s fast absorbing ability, but also for it’s antioxidants, minerals, and omega’s- a skin’s dream team!  You can say bye to fine lines and wrinkles.  Plus, it has clinically been proven to increase hydration. Check out my full review on Maya Chia I did to learn about how they extract the chia oil!

aluminum free deodorant

Primally Pure is the best aluminum free deodorant I’ve found in natural beauty!

 

Primally Pure

I couldn’t leave out one of my favorite products in clean beauty out of the best natural beauty and clean living brands blog post.  One of my favorite natural deodorants in clean beauty!  My hubs loves it too.  I just stocked up last week and placed an order.  He loves the Charcoal and I love the Blue Tansy scent.  I also love their simple approach to skincare, from their body butters, to body oils and their baby products.  I love how this company was started by a woman who wanted to know exactly what was in her products, just like what was in her food.  Check out my full review on Primally Pure here!

Some of my favorites from them are:

*Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN for 10% off!  Shop here!

 

Leahlani Skincare Review

To have used a Leahlani product is to love it!

 

Leahlani Skincare

One of the first natural skincare lines I used in clean beauty that stopped me in my tracks.  As they say, the proof is in the pudding and Leahlani Skincare delivers just that.  Started by Leah, who had her own skin issues and found a way to heal her skin and countless others.  She lives in Kaui, HI where she creates all her formulations.  I guess you could say you get a little aloha with every product!  Check out my full review on Leahlani Skincare here!

Some of my favorites from them are:

*Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN for any orders over $130 get a Serum Duo($56 value) for free!  Shop here!

 

Live Botanical Review

Sharing some of my new favorites from Live Botanical.

 

Live Botanical

I first discovered Live Botanical at IBE Dallas.  I had the pleasure of meeting the maker and founder Carolyn.  It was so great to connect and hear her enthusiasm for herbs.  Sometimes people merely create a line but I could instantly tell this was Carolyn’s passion.  Although she is an herbalist, much of how Carolyn sees skincare is based on her 15+ years in the technology field as an analyst.  It’s always so fascinating to see how people get their start in skincare. Check out my full review on Live Botanical Skincare!

Some of my favorites from them are:

*Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN for 20% off!  Shop here!

 

Osmia Organics Bar Soap Review

One product that can be found on Beauty Heroe’s Essential page is this luxe bar soap by Osmia Organics.

 

Beauty Heroes

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie last year at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people.  Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands.  Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box.  The products typically range from skincare to haircare products.  However, every 3 months Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box as well that’s optional for members or non-members.  I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy.  By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them.  Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards.  What’s not to love about this whole concept?  As a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement. Check out past review of Beauty Heroes Boxes here! 

*Use Coupon Code: ESSENTIALS to shop a special Essentials Collection where you can get special member pricing on all the products on the page.  That’s a 15% savings!  Shop here!

 

Kosmatology Review

This hand soap takes the cake when it comes to getting your hands squeaky clean without the chemicals!

 

Kosmatology

Kosmatology’s founder is Janis, a pharmacist who had a daughter with eczema.  As a pharmacist, she knew the steroid cream prescribed for her daughter had side effects, and she wasn’t comfortable living with that.  As a result, she started experimenting with different oil combinations, and it wasn’t long before people were asking her to make products for their families.  How cool is that?!  One thing I love about Kosmatology is their commitment to organic, pure ingredients.  There’s no fluff or toxins in these products.  Also, there is something for the whole family.  From bug repellant, to hand sanitizer, even face wash, they are your one stop shop.  Check out my full review on Kosmatology here! 

Some of my favorites from them are:

*Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN to save 15%.  Shop here!

 

OSEA review

OSEA not only has clean ingredients but effective products!

 

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.  Check out my full OSEA review here!

Some of my favorites from them are:

*Use Coupon Code: gurlgonegreen2020 for free travel size of choice with any purchase of $40 or more(must add travel item to cart).

 

SOL Organics down comforter review

Purity Coffee Review

Once you drink a cup of Purity coffee you’ll never want to go back!

 

Purity Coffee

If you’ve followed me for a hot minute then you know I can’t stop talking about Purity Coffee.  This coffee is the best when it comes to pure standards.  It’s organic, mold and mycotoxin free, and full of flavor.  It’s the next level when it comes to organic coffee!  My hubs and I can’t get enough.  I just bought a 5lb bag- we’re obsessed! 

Some of my favorites from them are:

  • Dark Roast
  • Decaf Coffee- I drink decaf and I love how rich and full bodied the coffee tastes even though it’s decaf. 

*Use Coupon Code: gurlgonegreen for 10% off.  Shop here!

 

Beautycounter Countertime Cleansing Oil

When you purchase a cleanser yourself for the second time as a beauty blogger, you know that it’s good!

 

Beautycounter

Beautycounter is doing something they’ve never done before!  They are offering 20% off for anyone who has not placed an order with them before- talk about awesome!  I’ve never seen that much of a discount.  If you’ve been on the fence and wanting to try something new- I highly recommend you snag some of their products up while the sale is happening.  It’s good on everything except Counterstart and Countermatch Foaming Cleanser and anything else that is already on sale.  So that means some of my faves like Countertime and Flawless in Five are 20% off!!  Check out my Beautycounter Review here!

Some of my favorites from them are:
