Ilia takes the cake when it comes to natural beauty that is both affective and clean!

 

Ilia True Skin Serum Primer

I was SO excited to get this in the mail.  It was backordered for a while from Aillea and I was on the edge of my seat to get one of the first bottles the minute it came back into stock.  Ilia is on of those green beauty brands that’s been around from the beginning and keeps producing stellar products.  They work like conventional products and offer the same benefits. 

I love their True Skin Serum Foundation so I knew I had to try their True Skin Serum Primer.  It basically had my name written all over it.  It’s a liquid primer with a hint of shimmer.  Nothing crazy people.  You can’t even see it.  It gives your skin a lit from within glow.  It’s meant to be applied after your moisturizer, right before foundation application.  You will feel your skin tighten slightly and your fine lines filled in.  It creates such a smooth even canvas for your makeup to be applied.  It even helps to diminish pores.  My skin looked lit from within and had such a glow.  I can’t get enough!  It doesn’t make your skin feel greasy at all but has a weightless moisture feel to it.  You’re skin really does look like it’s glowing.  Check it out here!

 

Ilia 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!  

I apply it to my eye lid all over.  Then take my finger and tap it into my eyelid.  Then apply my shadow. (BTW, check out my favorite eye shadow in green beauty here- seriously nothing compares)!  It gives my shadow something to adhere to.  If you haven’t found a natural beauty eye primer yet, then look no further.  This wand eye primer does the job so well! Check it out here!

Suntegrity 5-in-1 Moisturizing Lotion Tint is such an amazing BB cream that offers sun protection.

 

Suntegrity 5-In-1 Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted

This BB cream is so good!  It definitely hits all the marks for a great tinted sunscreen.  From superb coverage, hydration and good tint.  Plus, it offers a broad spectrum spf of 30.  It provides spf coverage with non-nano zinc oxide.  It also comes in four colors which makes it easy to find one that matches your skin tone.  

I love this tinted moisturizer because it feels more like a foundation to me then just a lotion with a slight tint.  I like a little more coverage and this provides it without looking cakey or overly done.  It wears well in the water too!  I love how smooth and even the formula looks on the skin.  Trust me, you’ll love it!  Grab yours here!

Fitglow Beauty Colour Lip Serums are in a league of their own!

 

Fitglow Beauty New Lip Colour Serum Duo in Kind+ Rose

This is one of Fitglow’s newest launches.  If you’ve followed me you know I have a thing for their lip serums!  They are like nothing you’ll use.  I’m not a huge fan of glosses but these are so different than a traditional gloss.  They don’t look goopy or tacky but glide on your skin effortlessly and provide such a smooth finish.  What’s even cooler is that they’re filled with antioxidants and vitamins that not only nourish your lips but keep them looking young and fresh.  It’s like a lip serum with color and a subtle shine- what more could you want?! 

My lips stay hydrated and have a subtle shine.  I also love how the color pigment looks.  It’s not overwhelmingly but just enough to give your lips a little pop.  They have so many amazing color options to choose from so if you’re not a fan of Kind and Rose, check them all out.  I also can’t get enough of Bliss, Go, Gospel and Nudie.  Ok, clearly I have a problem they’re all gorgeous!  Check out all the colors here!

Maya Chia’s newest product the Refresh Mint is a mask you’ll keep coming back too!

 

Maya Chia Refresh Mint Mask

This mask is one of the newest products to hit Maya Chia’s line.  To try a Maya Chia product is to love it!  They perform so well.  So when I was sent the newest Refresh Mint Mask, I basically had to hold myself back from using it the minute I got it.  This is unlike any mask I’ve used before in natural beauty. 

It’s a resurfacing moisture mask.  It takes a drab complexion and instantly awakens it and gives it a glow.  If your skin is feeling less than, this mask is for you.  It uses 4 different types of acids, enzymes, moisturizers to help slough off dead skin cells, hydrate and give you your glow back.  A little magic potion in a bottle.  I apply it to dry clean skin.  Once applied I let it sit on my skin until its dry.  Then rinse off with warm water.  My skin is left with a glow, and smoothness that makes your skin look radiant!  I’m so excited to keep using it and see my skin improve overtime. Get it here!

Malu SPF Moisturizer by Honua Skincare not only hydrates skin but also acts as a primer!

 

Honua Skincare Malu 

Malu is a protection day cream with spf 30.  It comes in a dark glass pump bottle- I love that you can turn the cap for when you travel.  It comes out white when you apply it to your skin but quickly fades to clear as you rub it in.  The natural sun protectant in the formula is non-nano zinc oxide.  It feels SO nice on the skin.  It hydrates but doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue.  

It really feels like a nice primer too.  Really filling in lines and creating a perfect canvas for makeup application.  I also felt I had a bit of a glow using it.  I really dig it!  Some facial sunscreens can feel heavy or greasy but not Malu!   A great way to protect your skin in the summer months but even year round it would be great under makeup or by itself.  Get it here!

Aluminum Free Deodorant

Aluminum Free Deodorant

I’m sharing my favorite aluminum free deodorant with you today!  Primally Pure! I have tried my fair share of natural deodorants in my day.  Trust me, it seems a new deodorant shows up on my doorstep every week.  But I didn’t land one that was great for everyone until Primally Pure.

Their deodorant takes the cake for my husband and I!  (Scroll to the bottom for my full review on my faves).  They not only create amazing deodorant but also provide so much education on natural deodorant in general.  I wanted to share what sets them apart and why it’s so important to make the switch to a natural deodorant. 

 

aluminum free deodorant

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

 

Now let’s back the truck up and talk about why you want an aluminum free deodorant in the first place. 

I really wanted to share the toxic burden mainstream deodorants carry.  This is one area of going green that I want to shout from the rooftops!  Why?  Because people use deodorant everyday, or at least most of us should.  Maybe you can get away with every other day, but you get my point.  Multiply that by 365 days and you’re rubbing toxins on yourself daily!

So what is this toxic load I speak of?  Well, let’s first talk about the biggest offender when it comes to mainstream deodorant, aluminum.  Aluminum is put in deodorant for the sole purpose of blocking your pores from sweating.  In essence, so you don’t get wet.  There’s a problem though, we were made to sweat, and our body uses sweat as a way to rid ourselves of toxins.

So where does the aluminum go?  Into our blood stream, fatty tissue, and can settle into breast tissue.  Unlike toxic food that can be broken down once digested, chemicals we put on our body cannot.  Instead they find a home in our fat and can wreak havoc.  Specifically in breast tissue.  A quote from the Journal of Inorganic Bio-chemistry states, “Over 50% of breast cancers start in the upper outer quadrant of the breast local to the underarm region.” Although, that doesn’t equate to aluminum causing breast cancer, it certainly lays a case for it.  Plus, it’s not just the application of the antiperspirant but the application onto underarms that have just been shaven.  The broken skin makes it even more permeable for the aluminum to get into the body.  Why take the risk if you don’t have too?!

And the crazy part about it all?  Aluminum isn’t the only toxic ingredient in your mainstream anti-perspirant.  Even if you’re using a mainstream deodorant without the aluminum you’re still putting harmful toxins in your body.  I can’t forget triclosan, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and fragrance.  These all do a number in your body too, and I’m not talking a happy number!  Your best bet is to make the switch over to a non-toxic deodorant that’s free from all the toxic offenders.

Now, I know this can be a tricky thing to do-trust me.  I sweat and I sweat a lot!  However, I have picked up some tips to make the transition easier.

 

aluminum free deodorant

Primally Pure’s Blue Tansy Deodorant and Charcoal Deodorant have won my heart!

 

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION TO A NATURAL DEODORANT:

 

 

  • DRINK WATER– Sounds like a no brainer but not drinking enough water can leave your body stagnat-nothings moving and that’s not good.  Make sure you’re drinking enough water for your body weight and having consistent bowel movements.

 

  • CONSIDER YOUR FOOD- Often times what we eat has a direct effect on our smell.  If you’re putting junk into your body, i.e. refined sugar, white flour, processed foods etc. then chances are you’re going to smell it too.  Eating more leafy greens and fruits causes your body to have a sweeter smell.  Also, some foods even if they are healthy can cause you to smell just because of their makeup. Be mindful of when you eat odor causing foods that may take your stench to a whole new level. Avoid these foods for a bit to see if your odor improves.  

 

  • EXFOLIATE UNDERARMS- It’s time to slough off all that bacteria and make sure your underarms are clean.  Getting rid of the bacteria and creating a clean canvas will help ensure you’re not creating further stench.

 

  • SWEAT- Many people don’t like to hear it but sweating is actually one of the best ways to detox naturally.  It pushes the toxins out of your body.  I’ve noticed myself I always smell better when I’m consistently getting a good sweat on through some form of exercise.  Also, epsom salt baths are great for helping to sweat, as well as saunas.  If your glands have been blocked for so many years chances are they have some mucous and bacteria buildup.  Remember sweating is a good thing!  Your body may even go through a period where you sweat a little more during the transition-totally normal.  Your body will adjust.

 

  •  CLOTHING- For the first several weeks consider the clothes you wear.  Opt for material such as merino wool, bamboo, hemp and cotton-all natural fibers.  Avoid synthetic fibers which can trap sweat and help breed bacteria.  Choose loose fitting, breathable clothing.

 

  • WATCH YOUR SHAVE- To avoid irritation, don’t apply your deodorant right after you shave.  Since your pores will be open and fresh, it’s best to avoid putting the deodorant on right away.  It may cause irritation and redness.  Give it some time.  If you can, shower the night before and apply in the morning or wait an hour to apply after you shower in the morning.  An hour gives your pores a chance to close up.

 

  • DON’T GIVE UP– Just because one natural deodorant doesn’t work or you’re still feeling like you smell, don’t give up!  It takes time for your body to acclimate and this may not be a quick fix.  Ask around, be diligent de-toxing, and eventually you’ll reap the rewards.

Some of my favorite natural beauty products from Primally Pure!

 

Primally Pure as I mentioned takes the natural deodorant cake in all areas.  From an affordable price, squeaky clean ingredients, smell good scents and no irritation.  Overall the formula works so well!  They have a couple blog posts that really help understand natural deodorant.  Check out what you need to know about using natural deodorant and also their blog post on the science of natural deodorant and why their formula works so well. 

My hubs loves the Charcoal Deodorant.  I love their Blue Tansy.  Although I tried the Charcoal and I have to say I would use that any day too!  It’s crazy because the more I tell people about their deodorants the more feedback I hear on how amazing they are.  It seems to work for the majority of people.  

If you haven’t been able to get your husband to make the switch I recommend grabbing him a Primally Pure Deodorant.  My hubs is picky and when he says it’s his fave, I know it’s good.  The Formula goes on so smooth and doesn’t cause any irritation.  I smell fresh all day long.  The Blue Tansy smell is just so good!  I also love how the charcoal smells minty fresh- you know I’m all about anything mint.

If you’re also wanting to switch your products over in the skincare arena, check out Primally Pure’s skincare products.  I’ve tried a handful of their products and I can’t get enough of their simple ingredients, and effectiveness.

 

Some Favorite Skincare Products From Them Are:

  • Blue Tansy Beauty Cream- This cream soothes skin so well.  Blue Tansy is known for it’s soothing and calming properties.  It also smells divine.  It melts right into the skin and leaves behind complete hydration.  It also has emu oil which is known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Dry Shampoo- This is my favorite dry shampoo I’ve used in natural beauty!  They have it in a darker shade for dark hair and lighter shade for light hair.  It soaks up excess oil in hair so well and really adds some great volume!
  • Blue Tansy Body Oil- This body oil also has blue tansy…I know can you tell I’m a huge fan of blue tansy.  This oil is so great for the skin and calms irritation or inflammation.

Pregnant With Baby #3!

Pregnant With Baby #3!

So excited to finally share I’m pregnant with baby #3!  It’s been a secret I’ve been keeping under wraps for what feels like forever, but I’m so excited to finally be able to share the news with you!

Hope you guys love the video! I plan to do more videos so let me know what you want to see in the comments of the video or blog post here.

Beautycounter Must Haves

Beautycounter Must Haves

Beautycounter must haves is here!  In light of the 15% off sale happening at Beautycounter I had to share my favorites with you.  I’ve been using Beautycounter now for 5 months and I’ve definitely found what products I love and can’t part with.

I thought it only fitting to share them with you!  After all, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t give you the full run down?!

Now let’s talk faves!  If you’ve perused Beautycounter long enough then you know they offer a ton of products.  Not every product I love- I know shocker.  Some have worked and some haven’t.  Today I want to share all my hands down favorites with you.  These products have taken up permeant residence on my bathroom shelves and they’re not going anywhere.

What I love to about Beautycounter is that they not only offer skincare and makeup but body products, hair products and baby products.  Basically your one stop shop when it comes to natural beauty!

Volume and Shape Shampoo and Conditioner- 

 

beautycounter Volume and shape shampoo

My favorite natural shampoo in green beauty!

 

I feel like a broken record with this one but I seriously cannot stop talking about it because it’s so good!  This shampoo is an all star when it comes to fine/thin haired gals.  It suds up so well.  My hair feels clean and it doesn’t weigh it down.  The conditioner still does feel like it hydrates without adding weight.  My hair is color treated so I do like a little hydration otherwise my lighter pieces can look a little dry.  I wash my hair every other day. Basically if you’ve been searching for natural shampoo that legit works- this is your gem! Get it here!

 

Eyebrow Gel-

This eyebrow gel has stolen my heart!  It give my eyebrows a natural look and also provides some good hold.  I love how there is no red in the formula!  Something that is hard to find in natural beauty.  They even offer a clear version for those that don’t need color but just some hold.  Get it here!

 

Lip Sheers

 

Beautycounter lip sheers

These lip sheers are the perfect lippy for spring and summer!

 

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I tried the lip sheers and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked them.  I’m not a gloss girl and so this is the perfect middle ground between a lipstick and gloss.  One of Beautycounter’s best sellers for good reason.  It feels like a really hydrating lip balm but not goopy or tacky.  Glides on your lips giving a hint of sheen and some color. The color pigment is more translucent and just a hint.  The perfect everyday lip color to throw on.

I can see myself wearing these a lot especially in the spring and summer.  These would be great for teenagers especially in my opinion.  Not as dramatic as a lipstick but still offers a little color.  I love the colors Rose, Poppy and Petal!  But those are the only colors I have so I’m pretty sure I would love any of them.  Petal is the perfect nudist pink- I can’t stop wearing it!  See all the colors here! 

Eyeshadows

 

Beautycounter eyeshadow review

These are the best natural beauty eyeshadows I’ve tried!

 

Ok, if you’ve been following me then you know I love Beautycounter’s eyeshadow palettes!  They are the BEST in green beauty.  Seriously- I’ve tried them all and nothing compares…nothing.  The pigment is rich, the texture glides on and the longevity- SO good.  They stay the whole day no creasing.  I use the Ilia Primer before I apply the shadows and it works like a charm.  I can’t tell you how many people compliment my shadows too- it’s because they’re seriously gorgeous.  I can’t get enough of them.  I have the Classic Palette, and Statement Palette but I want them all!  Get a palette and thank me!

Bronzer

 

Beautycounter Blush and bronzer review

Beautycounter blush and bronzer offer so much pigment in clean beauty!

 

This bronzer is another fave.  People ask me what bronzer I have been using lately and it’s this one!  The moment I tried it I knew I would love it.  I’m picky when it comes to bronzers- super picky.  I find it’s really hard to find a true bronze brown color and not have it look orange.  Anyone else feel me on this?!  Then Beautycounter’s came into my lap and I haven’t been able to stray since using it.  It doesn’t look orange and it’s pressed- I repeat pressed!  Loose bronzers are just one more step and messy- not what I want to add to my plate.  Get the bronzer too- everyone needs bronzer in my opinion, it warms you up in seconds!  They have several different colors, I wear the color Dune.  Get it here! 

Blush

 

I was sold after my first swipe of their blushes- literally these are the best powder blushes I’ve used.  I love that they’re pressed and not loose- less mess.  I also love the color pay off. They nailed the color Nectar!  It’s the perfect Nars dupe of Orgasm and basically goes with almost anyone’s skin tone.  It’s SO pretty!  I also have the punchy pink color Guava and can’t get enough of it either. They stay on so well and blend great into the skin.  They don’t look cakey at all.   I’m telling you, try the blushes already- you’ll thank me!  Check out all the color here!

 

Resurfacing Peel

Beautycounter Resurfacing Peel

This peel gives you a glow in no time!

 

I had to share the resurfacing peel!  If you haven’t tried it you’re missing out, plain and simple.  It works so well at minimizing fine lines, dark spots and sloughing off dead skin.  It uses 3 different acids, malic, lactic and glycolic to improve texture and tone of the skin.  You put it on your skin like you would a serum at night and wake up with skin that looks refreshed, smooth and glowing.  I’m not surprised this is a best seller!  Get the peel already.

 

Countermatch Eye Cream

Beautycounter eye cream

Love Beautycounter’s Body Cream and Eye Cream.

 

This eye cream is one of the best eye creams.  I find it hard to find eye creams that aren’t too heavy.  This one is just the right amount of moisture.  It hydrates but quickly soaks right into the eye area.  I love using this at night or in the morning before I apply my makeup.  It’s also not crazy expensive too!  Get it here!

 

Makeup Wipes

Say hello to your new favorite wipe…but really!  These are in a league of their own.  I kept hearing people say to try the wipes and so of course I did!  These wipes have the perfect moisture amount.  I had yet to find a green beauty wipe that worked so well.  They were either to dry or not soft enough.  Beautycounter hit all the marks on these wipes.  They are soft, moist and even biodegradable.  If you’re a wipe gal you need these!  Perfect for travel too.  You could even cut them in half to make them last longer.  Get them here!

 

Body Cream-

Beautycounter Review

Sharing my full review on Beautycounter’s makeup remover wipes and Rejuvenating Toner Pads.

 

I’ve been lathering this on after showering and not sure when I will stop.  It is truly so hydrating and indulgent.  It has a citrus mimosa scent that is so decadent!  I’m more of a body cream gal and I can’t get enough of this.  It keeps my skin moist long after applying and isn’t oily feeling.  Plus, it absorbs so well into my skin, no greasy feeling.  Get your body cream here!

 

Rejuvenating Toner Pads-

I’ve been using these for a month and I can’t stop.  I haven’t found anything like them in natural beauty.  They are a toner pad.  So it’s a cotton pad that already has the toning elixir on it.  You just take a pad and wipe it all over your fave.  It Instantly  refreshes your skin.  I love that I can see how clean my skin actually is!  It shows if I’m really cleansing my skin well enough.  Plus, these are perfect in warm weather when we tend to get a little sweaty.  I love having these on hand to wipe away the sweat quick so it doesn’t just sit on my skin and cause…you know breakouts.  Trust me, you’ll love them!  Get them here!

 

Ok, clearly I have some favorites that I’ve come to love!  If you’ve tried Beautycounter products I want to hear what you love and can’t stop using.  Leave me a comment!

 

Also, if you’re interested in becoming a consultant and sharing the mission of getting safer products into people’s hands, then send me an email to [email protected] and I can give you more details.  Beautycounter has changed my life and is one of the best decisions I’ve made!

April Natural Beauty Box Roundup

April Natural Beauty Box Roundup

The April Natural Beauty Box Roundup is here!  I always get excited for a new month and of course for new beauty boxes too. I mean once a natural beauty blogger, always a natural beauty blogger!  This month is another great month for discovering some stellar clean beauty products. 

Always keep checking back, I’ll keep the natural beauty boxes coming as new ones show up!

 

Beauty Heroes: April Discovery de Mamiel

April Beauty Heroes

Beauty Heroes is sharing a stellar product combo this month with de Mamiel!

 

This was such a unique brand to get to try out this month! How often is it that you get to try out a line that is made by a Chinese medicine doctor, aromatherapist, esthetician, artisan, teacher and formulator- pretty awesome!  I was intrigued right there but even more so when I understood that the basis of the line is also centered around stress.  From physical stress, to emotional stress and chemical stress.  

I admire the attention to detail with the line.  The founder Annee really focuses on treating the skin both externally and internally. Each product is handmade and carefully sourced.  I love her whole approach!  I feel this is the way skincare is going and trending.  It’s no longer another product to apply to the skin but a whole body approach to skincare and how overall wellbeing is the answer. 

Heroic Product Brightening Cleanse & Exfoliate- This is such a unique product!  I was excited when I read about it’s many uses.  It can be an exfoliant, mask, skin soother and more.  It just depends on what you need it for.  I also love that it’s not activated until you mix water with it!  Since it’s a powder it doesn’t need any preservatives.  So you’re getting the most potent version of the product the minute water touches it- brilliant!  The ingredient list is substantial.  With rhassoul and rose clay, vitamin C, colloidal oat, rose quartz and red jasper just to name a few.  It’s loaded with active ingredients that really do the work for you.  You can use it as a cleanser and exfoliant or you can use it as a mask and leave it on your skin for 10 minutes. 

It brightened my skin, helped to minimize redness, ease congestion and overall create more even skin tone.  I just mixed a teaspoon of the powder into my hand and then added a few drops of water to it.  I ended up with this pasty goodness that can be a little messy but I don’t mind! 😉  I find messy often means beautiful.  I loved leaving it on my skin in the mornings as I brushed my teeth to help give my skin a glow and take away ruddiness.  You can use it everyday if you’re skin can tolerate it but some may prefer 1-3 times a week if they’re skin is sensitive. Such an all around all star product!

Sidekick: Skin Recovery Blend- This balm is definitely a noteworthy product.  When I saw that it was blue in color and caught a whiff of the smell I knew it contained blue tansy- one of my favorite oils.  It’s known for it’s calming and soothing benefits.  It feels so cooling on the skin as well.  Besides blue tansy, the balm also contains a host of other powerhouse oils from Cape Chamomile, Blue Cypress, Yarrow, and German Chamomile.  Overall the balm helps to calm inflammation, clarify acne prone skin, protect the skin from environmental stress and also plump and minimize fine lines. Definitely a multitasker!  I loved applying this at night after my serums to help soothe and moisturize my skin.  It just sunk in and felt light, even though it is a balm.  My skin felt so hydrated the next day and supple.  The smell and texture are so good!  Definitely more than a sidekick in my book.

Best part is you can get this fabulous box right now for such a steal!  This box is valued at $107 but you can snag it for $42.95.  This really is such stellar box- I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell out!  Hop on it now if you’re thinking of getting it. Get Beauty Heroes April Discovery here!  

 

Boxwalla April Box-

 

Boxwalla April Box

Sharing these skin treats from Boxwalla’s April box!

 

This is a bi-monthly box. I really love that it’s bi-monthly!  It makes you really savor each product.  This month we are seeing two different brands in the box.  Flowerspice and Malaya.  

Flowerspice Soothe and Repair Daily Moisturizer- This moisturizer is so lovely!  It completely hydrates your skin but doesn’t leave it feeling greasy or oily.  The scent is so nice too.  Very different but I love it.  It’s a mixture of rose and coriander.  It comes in a glass jar.  I would scoop some out and apply it to my skin after my serums at night.  My skin would feel so hydrated and supple in the morning.  I even have been using it for my hands as they have been drier and loving how moisturized they feel.  This isn’t your average moisturizer.  It’s filled with aloe, prickly pear and Swiss Mountain Spring Water.  A serious treat for the skin!

Malaya  Advanced Repair Mask- This mask is unlike any mask I’ve used. It is both clarifying and nourishing at the same time.  Made with neem flower honey, bentonite clay and aloe, this mask really is a powerhouse when it comes to hitting all the skincare needs.  I love how my skin feels cleared, yet hydrated and glowing after using it.  And the smell!  I just love the smell.  It’s a lemongrass, blue tansy smell that I can’t get enough of!  I love how the ingredients are soothing like aloe and blue tansy, but at the same time clarifying from the honey, and clay.  Can’t stop using it!

I would snag this box soon!  It’s a $160 value but you can get it for $49.95!  Get it here!

The Clean Beauty Box: April Balance-

 

Clean Beauty Box April

We are seeing WabiSabi in this month’s Clean Beauty Box!

 

This month is all about balance in The Clean Beauty Box.  From the Illuminative Ritual Cleanser to the Balancing Act.  Wabisabi as a brand cares very much about where ingredients come from.  Sourcing is of high importance to them.  Not only for sustainability but for ethical reasons and ensuring all workers are treated fairly.  Something I love about the brand!

They use organic and wildcrafted ingredients that are active.  I love that they donate 10% of their profits to Kiva micro-loans that provide for women.  These loans help women across the world to have the option to live out their purpose and dreams- how cool!

Illuminative Ritual Cleanser- This cleanser is such a skin treat.  It’s an oil cleanser that gets rid of all the grime and dirt from the day.  It smells like coffee to me!  It has roasted coffee bean oil and cacao in it.  Also, Moringa Oil and Rosella Hibiscus Oil.  I massage it on to dry skin and rub in circular motions to release the dirt and oil.  Then I take a warm washcloth and wipe it off.  It doesn’t sting my eyes at all.  My skin felt balanced and not stripped after using.

Balancing Act This is a serum but in rollerball form.  Something I haven’t seen before.  This is actually a pre-launch specifically with The Clean Beauty Box.  This offers both Omega-3 and Omega-6 to help soothe the skin and calm inflammation.  You can wear this underneath your makeup during the day or at night after cleansing and toning.  I just rolled it onto my skin and then blended it.  It contains Guava Seed Oil, Sacha Inchi Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil and Brazilian Tiger’s Eye.  A skin treat for sure!

You can snag this box now for $41.95!  A $112 value!  I would hop on this while it’s still available.  Get it here!

Detox Box For April-

 

This month in the April Detox Box we are seeing Indie Lee!  I’ve used a handful of Indie Lee’s products and was excited to see this natural beauty brand in the box.  This skincare line is based around nature but backed by science.  Indie Lee uses some of the best natural ingredients to deliver results driven skincare. 

We are seeing some of the newest products from Indie Lee in this month’s box.

Daily Skin Nutrition- This everyday lotion is perfect to apply to your skin daily, in the morning and at night to hydrate your skin.  It leaves it feeling moisturized but not greasy.  Some of the powerhouse ingredients include squalene, rosehip seed, olive and avocado oil.  Plus vitamin C and the moisture boosting hyaluronic acid!  A serious skin lover’s dream. My skin felt nourished but not overly hydrated.  Perfect before applying your makeup for the day.

Daily Vitamin Infusion- This serum is so lovely!!  It includes an array of plant oils and ceramides and lipids that help to bring moisture to the skin and protect barrier function.  It also has vitamin C!  I loved how this felt on my skin.  I would apply it at night and in the morning.  It feels like a big gulp of water for my skin and acted like a primer before I applied my makeup.  I can’t get enough!  My skin felt so dewy, soft and smooth.  If you struggle to really get your skin to feel hydrated this would be perfect to apply before your oils at night or night cream.  Then in the morning right after cleansing and toning to hydrate the skin before makeup.  It just fills in all the cracks so well.  New fave!  

Rosehip Cleanser- This cleanser washes off all the grime for the day and makeup but leaves my skin feeling balanced still.  It’s not a cream cleanser but more of a gel consistency.  It definitely gives your skin the clean feeling all around but without stripping it.  Rosehip is so soothing and really helps to calm the skin.  It was a great compliment to the Daily Vitamin Infusion and Daily Skin Nutrition.  

I would get this box ASAP!  It’s so good and the value is crazy amazing!  You can get this box now for $49.95 but it’s a $150 value!!  Hop on it before it’s too late.  Get it here!
