Clove And Hallow’s Skin Tint Foundation Review

Clove And Hallow’s Skin Tint Foundation Review

I’m so excited to share with you Clove and Hallow’s Skin Tint Foundation Review.  This is their most requested product!  Not surprised.  Foundation can be hard to find in general.  There are so many factors to consider.  I’ve tried a handful of Clove and Hallow Products and I’m always impressed!

Not only are their products affordable but also cruelty free, and vegan.  All the products are made in the USA and follow the EU’s stringent standards.  They have a Clean Fifteen guarantee:

“No cheap fillers or unnecessary fluff. Just the good stuff, delivered in 15 or fewer ingredients per base formula.”

The founder of Clove and Hallow Sarah Biggers went through her own personal health journey that led her to creating Clove and Hallow.  She went through depression, and panic attacks so severe she was bedridden.  She quickly realized after consulting with a naturopath the importance of what we put in our bodies.  Once she went down that road she then wondered what was also in the products she was recommending to clients, friends and family members as a makeup artist.

 

Clove and Hallow Review

Meet Clove and Hallow’s newest addition: Liquid Skin Tint!

 

After looking into many natural beauty brands she quickly realized she couldn’t find the products she was looking for.  She wanted performance but also a product that was affordable.  Soon she realized she needed to create this line she dreamt up and Clove and Hallow was born.

I love that each Clove and Hallow product serves a purpose.  There aren’t a ton of filler products in their line.

One of the products that Clove and Hallow continually was asked about was a foundation.  Something that would hit all the marks.  From texture, to shades and performance.  That’s when Clove and Hallow’s Liquid Skin Tint was born!

This foundation is unlike any other I’ve tried.

 

Clove and Hallow review

Left side of photo I’m wearing Clove and Hallow Liquid Skin Tint in 04, the right side I’m wearing nothing.

Here are some unique characteristics of the formula:

  • It’s lightweight
  • Comes in 12 shades(they even did a focus group with 20 women and all were able to find a shade for their skin type)
  • Provides a demi-matte finish
  • Price Point is really affordable at $26
  • Feels creamy to the touch but dries matte

 

A lot of clean beauty foundations are known for their dewiness.  They add oils to foundations to really give that dewy skin look.  However, it’s hard to get rid of that dewiness once you have it on your skin.

With Clove and Hallow’s Liquid Skin Tint you’re able to add oils of your choice, or a liquid highlighter to bring out the luminosity if you like.  Really making it a truly versatile product all around.

These are some of the color swatches they offer of the Clove and Hallow Liquid Skin Tint.

 

I especially love the Liquid Skin Tint for the summer months when humidity is on the rise and often you want to eliminate any shine from the skin.  This makes it so easy to create that matte effect on the skin without adding more shine to the skin.

I tried several shades: 03, 04, and 05.  04 was a perfect match for my skin!

This is how I’ve been wearing it.  I apply a facial moisturizer first, then wait a minute or two and then apply the foundation with my fingertips.  I’ve tried using a kabuki brush and my fingers to blend the formula and I prefer my fingers.  It helps to warm up the product slightly I’ve noticed.

This would be ideal as I mentioned for use in the summer but also for those with oily skin types that want to cut down on shine in general.  It provides a medium coverage overall.  Nothing too heavy, still feels lightweight on the skin.

I’ve even mixed the Liquid Skin Tint with Clove and Hallow’s Hydraglow and love the result!  It gives some great dewiness and glow to the skin.  Especially great if you are a little older and want more dewiness in the skin or your skin tends to be on the dry side.

Odacite’s new Blue Aura Cleansing Water is so good!

 

Odacite Blue Aura Cleansing Water-

This is Odacite’s newest product and I was so jazzed to try it!  It’s like a micellar water but even more effective.  It was created to make cleansing super easy and effective.  It’s a no rinse cleanser.  So you apply some on a cotton round, wipe all over face to clean and that’s it.  For me personally I like to use it as a second cleanse and tone.  So essentially after I cleanse my skin I love wiping my skin with this cleansing water.  It acts not only as a second cleanse but also my toner and mist.  

It really makes my skin feel extra clean especially with the extra heat as the summer months come.  It is filled with Ayurvedic herbs like Holy Basil, Neem, and  Tumeric.  I LOVE it particularly in the mornings.  I don’t wash my face with a heavy duty cleanser in the mornings but I love to get the night grime off and wake it up with a toner.  This is perfect!  It wakes my skin up but also makes it feel clean and ready for the day.  Definitely a unique product for clean beauty!  Get it here!

 

Primally Pure’s Baby Oil-

I know it might seem weird to put a baby oil in here but I couldn’t not!  It’s been hard to find a clean baby oil that would be safe for my whole body and growing belly as I’m pregnant but I found one.  Primally Pure’s Baby Oil is not only safe for moms to be but also for baby!  I rub this all over my body after showering and my belly too.  I love knowing what I’m putting on my body is safe and that I’m helping prevent the beloved stretch marks from forming.  

Plus, it’s in glass which I love!  I always get weirded out when oils are in plastic containers.  It makes me think they’re soaking up all the plastics!  They also have a baby balm too that I rub on my belly as well.  Check out the baby oil here!

This Countersun Tinted Mineral Sunscreen from Beautycounter is one of my fave products for summer!

 

Beautycounter Countersun Tinted Mineral Sunscreen-

This has changed my life- no joke.  I did a whole IGTV video all about it here.  You know how self tanners take a good 4-6 hours to process?  I mean who has time for that right?!  With this new tinted mineral sunscreen it literally acts like a self tanner and sunscreen in one.  You apply it to your skin just like you would sunscreen.  But get this…it’s tinted so you not only see exactly where you are applying it but also get a tan in seconds.  Plus, it gives you sun protection of SPF 30.  Best of the both worlds!  

I’ve been applying this to my face as foundation and can’t get enough.  I look like I have a nice glow and I’ve got my face protected from the sun.  I’m addicted!  If you haven’t snagged a bottle- do it here!

This shampoo is so unique but has stolen my heart!

 

GOOP Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub Shampoo-

Whoah…this shampoo is unlike anything I’ve used.  First it comes in a round jar- not a bottle.  I didn’t even realize it was shampoo at first but then I read the label and was very intrigued.  Of course I had to get it!  It’s not even a liquid in texture but feels more like a facial exfoliant in texture.  It has tiny pink Himalayan salt crystals in it too. Plus, it has cold-pressed moringa oil, and rose hip oil.  I literally just thought how it this going to clean my hair?

But it did!  And so well.  You want to make sure your hair is completely damp and then apply some of the product onto hair and massage in.  It forms a great lather.  Your hair and scalp feels squeaky clean afterwards.  It smells minty fresh with peppermint, orange and geranium.  I love it!  It really is such a revolutionary product.  Plus, how awesome for travel?!  You wouldn’t even have to put it in your checked bag.  Just throw it in your carryon.  Get it here!

 

Natural Deodorant-

So the sun is out, which also means the sweat comes!  Warm sunny days are awesome but smelling is not.  I finally found a deodorant that I absolutely am crazy about, and guess what?!  So is my hubs!  

Primally Pure Deodorants take the cake when it comes to formula and effectiveness.  They go on so smooth, keep me fresh all day long and give me no irritation.  My hubs loves the Charcoal Deodorant and I love the Blue Tansy.  Stop smelling and get them already!

So glad I can have clean skincare but also effective skincare when I’m pregnant.

 

True Botanical’s Calm Oil Pure Radiance Oil, Vitamin C Booster and Nutrient Mist-

Once I found out I was pregnant I was on a hunt for the best natural skincare that not only was safe but also effective.  I didn’t want to just start slathering coconut oil on my face since I was expecting- and all the mamas to be said amen!  I wanted my products to still be working and giving me the antioxidants my skin needs.  In comes True Botanical’s!

I love that they have a pregnancy safe line that they have vetted for safety but also effectiveness.  I use their Calm Pure Radiance Oil as not only a moisturizer but also to help smooth fine lines and combat redness.  I tend to get even more redness when I’m pregnant. I also love their Nutrient Mist.  It smells so good, but not overly potent. I find I’m sensitive to scents when pregnant and this is the perfect subtle scent.  I spray this on my skin after cleansing before oils.  I also use their Vitamin C Booster.  A powerful combination of Vitamin C powder that isn’t activated until you add water.  I mix it with my Nutrient Mist and then apply to my skin.  I follow with Calm Pure Radiance Oil.  I love knowing my skin is getting active antioxidants even when I’m pregnant.  

If you’ve been looking for safe skincare that still packs a punch when pregnant then I would recommend True Botanical’s!  I love them even when I’m not pregnant but so great knowing I can still use them when I am.  Get their products here!  Also, check out my full True Botanical’s review here.

 

Dry Brushing-

I’ve dry brushed for years but I’ve really gotten more into it since being pregnant.  It can help increase blood flow and be great if you tend to swell.  Some even say it can help prevent stretch marks.  I dry brush before I shower.  I also love it for the added exfoliation.  It really gets my skin glowing more than anything!  I tend to swell in my pregnancies and didn’t dry brush with my last two and so this has been a game changer.  It also just wakes up my whole body too in the mornings.  Really getting my system moving.  If you haven’t tried it yet, do it!  Such a good way to detox your body.  

I have two different dry brushes.  This one and this onethis one does shed from time to time.  I like them both.  The longer handle is nice for reaching my back.  This is also a great video of dry brushing if you’ve never done it before!

How To Save Money On Clean Beauty

How To Save Money On Clean Beauty

Today on the blog I’m showing you how to save money on clean beauty. I hear the phrase a lot, I can’t afford to swap my beauty products out.  Or switching over is so expensive.  I hear you and I totally get it.  It’s not easy to just drop a couple hundred on some new clean beauty products.  That’s why I want to introduce you to my secret weapon when it comes to saving money when buying natural beauty products.  

Have you heard of Pharmaca?  Well, if you haven’t let me introduce you!  They’re an online natural wellness retailer that carries everything from clean beauty products, to natural supplements, kid’s products and more.  

I love finding a one stop shop where I can literally buy my toothpaste, get my favorite lipstick, and grab some clean shampoo.  Instead of shopping at 3 different stores online. 

I wanted to share why Pharmaca is my go too when getting clean products for a good price.  Keep reading to find out why this retailer takes the cake!

Pharmaca Clean beauty

These are some of my favorite clean beauty products from Pharmaca!

 

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:

 

Pharmaca clean beauty

So many great products at Pharmaca!

 

Isn’t it amazing?!  Huge savings plus quality products.  I wanted to share some of my very favorite brands and products that you can find at Pharmaca below.

 

  • 100% Pure Caffeine Eye Cream  This eye cream wakes up my tired mama eyes and helps minimize the puffiness.  I’m so impressed with the price and the quality of the product!  I even put mine in the fridge to help de-puff even more.
  • Radius Floss This floss is always the best deal on Pharmaca.  I love knowing that it’s free from teflon and other chemicals they put on conventional floss.
  • Himalaya Toothpaste I was excited to try this toothpaste for the first time.  I had read rave reviews about it.  I really like the formula.  It isn’t overly foaming and my teeth feel clean and polished after using.  I’ll have to wait and see how much it whitens but so far I’m impressed!
  • Dr. Bronner’s Soaps Love these soaps in general, but love this convenient travel size for all my trips!  You can use it to wash your hands, your body, even get a stain out of a shirt. I love the hemp scented one.
  • Max Green Alchemy Hair Paste- I’ve been on the hunt for a texture paste that works and isn’t going to blow the budget.  Well, I finally found one!  I had heard good things about Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Texture Paste and was excited it lived up to the hype.  It comes in tube form and retails for $14.99, but at Pharmaca they are always having discounts so you can usually get it for 20% off!  This works on my husband’s hair to give him a nice textured look and some decent hold without it looking wet or crispy.  It also works on my hair too.  I take a small dime size amount and rub through my hands.  After, curling I take my hands and work it through to piece out the curls and add some texture and hold.  A great product all around and at a great price!  
  • Evan Healy Sweet Blossom Hydrating Oil-  This body oil has been in my beauty arsenal for 5 years- it’s so good!  I love the smell.  It has notes of frankincense, neroli, and ylang ylang in it.  When you apply it to your skin it soaks right up.  But leaves behind a silly smooth feeling.  Made with a combination of jojoba, sunflower, sesame and apricot kernel oil.  It envelops your skin and leaves lasting moisture. 
  • Preserve Razor Tripe Blade- These razors are made from recycled materials, some of the recycled products are yogurt cups.  Pretty cool!  Also, the whole razor is recyclable itself. They give my skin a smooth feeling but I don’t feel like they’re so sharp that they are going to nick me easily.  I love that they’re easy to travel with too and budget friendly.  A great pick instead of getting a plastic one you can’t recycle.  
  • Acure Captivating Light Body Oil- This body oil is great for travel!  I love having it on hand for trips.  It doesn’t come in glass like the Evan Healy one, which makes it perfect for a trip.  You can easily toss it in your bag and not worry about it breaking.  Plus, it smells so good and sprays too- pretty cool.  If coconut isn’t your fave, they also have other scents too.  
  • ZuZu Lipsticks- These lipsticks are another great value for a green beauty lipstick.  It goes on so smooth and doesn’t bleed.  I love the color Starlet!  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.  
  • 100% Pure Eye 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!  
  • Juice Beauty Sport Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 30- 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!  
  • Inika Organic Liquid Foundation- 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. 
  • Inika Organic Mineral Blush Duo- 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. 
  • All Good Body Lotion- This is a great budget friendly body lotion.  It really performs so well one comes in a tube which makes it so easy to travel with.  
  • Vapour Organic Beauty AER Next Level Deodorant This is such a great deodorant and one of the few places you can find it for a discount online.

May’s Natural Beauty Box Roundup

May’s Natural Beauty Box Roundup

A new month brings May’s Natural Beauty Box Roundup!  This month is a fun one and the savings are through the roof!  If you haven’t hopped on the natural beauty box train this month might be a good month to start.  We are seeing some of the best brands for a serious steal!

Beauty Heroes: Ayuna

 

Beauty Heroes May Discovery

May’s Beauty Heroes Discovery is one for the books! Ayuna is featuring their newest product Velo.

 

This month we are seeing another standout product from Ayuna.  If you’ve been receiving Beauty Heroes for a while then you’re totally familiar with this luxe natural beauty brand.  They deliver results driven skincare with clean ingredients.  Ayuna’s roots are in Spain where the products are made.  I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founders a couple years ago and she was delightful.  

Heroic Product: Velo- This is a new product release from Ayuna and it’s just so good.  At first you think it’s just a face cream but as you dive into this product you realize it’s so much more!  It’s filled with superhero ingredients from lactobacillus ferment, cocos nucifera, olive oil and trehalose to name a few.  Not only does it hydrate the skin but it also protects it from the environment and all it’s pollutants.  It does this by forming a film that help to keep pollution out.  It also helps balance your skin microbiome with probiotics.  The name Velo in Spanish means veil.  The idea is that Velo basically turns into your second skin.  Creating a smooth, even canvas that looks like your skin but better.  

What did I think?  A lot actually.  It really lives up to the hype.  It moisturizes my skin completely but also makes it look so much better.  There is a tint to it.  Nothing too much just a subtle tint that pulls your whole face together.  I actually just wore this by itself like a tinted moisturizer on some days and then on others when I wanted more coverage I touched up with some additional foundation. It really is such a unique product!  

Sidekick: The Facial- I was excited to see The Facial as this month’s sidekick.  I’m no stranger to this beauty.  I have used it in the past.  It seems so small to call it just a toner, because it does so much.  It’s like getting a facial but your in the coziness of your own bathroom and it takes 60 seconds.  Not only does it exfoliate but also balance and completely change your skin.  

You apply it to clean skin.  It feels like lotion to powder formula.  Feeling like a liquid at first but then creating a matte affect on the skin after.  It contains glutamic acid, lactobacillus ferment, apple cider vinegar, succinic acid and non stem cells just to name a few.  These ingredients work together to help exfoliate, calm inflammation and create a smooth even finish.  I was using this before for about a month and people kept complementing me on my skin.  I finally figured out it was The Facial that had changed in my routine. Results are everything!

Best part is you can get this fabulous box right now for such a steal!  This box is valued at $252  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 May Discovery here! 

 

Boxwalla

 

boxwalla review

This limited edition Boxwalla box is one for the books!

 

So technically Boxwalla does not have a box this month!  But is offering a limited edition box.  This box is definitely worth noting and I couldn’t wait to share with you!  It’s a sampling of natural perfumes from SIGIL.  The founder Patrick Kelly creates unique scents that are all unisex.  This is unlike other natural fragrances you’ve used- trust me!   They use essential oils, absolutes, CO2 extracts and house-made tinctures in a base of certified organix sugarcane alcohol. They actually remind me a lot of conventional fragrances but without the headache.  They are woodsy, warm and sophisticated.  Not just a blend of essential oils if you know what I mean.  

So how the Limited Edition Box works is you get to sample their 4 scents.  Then you pick your favorite and they send you a full size perfume of that scent.  It’s a crazy good value!!  The full size perfume is $120 value and the box itself is a $50 value.  This is such a great way for someone to be able to try several natural perfumes before having to commit.  One you receive the box you have 4 weeks to decide which scent suits you best.

My two favorites are Amor Fati.  This is a lighter perfume, which in my opinion is perfect for summer.  It has notes of Bergamot, Palo Santo, Green Pine Needles and Resinous Galbanum.  It changes as I wear it too- my hubs loved it.

My other fave is Solutio.  This feels light as well and a little sweet.  It has lime and citrus scents in it.  I like how fresh it is on.  Really awakens my senses as I wear it.

I can’t recommend this box enough!  So many people ask me about perfumes and this is a great way to be able to try them.  Get the box here!

 

Detox Box

 

Detox Box May

The Detox Box for May contains one of my favorite natural beauty facial oils!

 

This month it is all about Agent Nateur in the Detox Box.  Featuring a travel size deodorant stick in HOLI(STICK)No. 3 and a full size HOLI(OIL).  I’ve long been a fan of Agent Nateur’s HOLI(OIL) for while.  It was fun to see them in this month’s box, plus a travel sized deodorant!  

HOLI(OIL)- This frosted bottle contains a rich oil that smells like roses.  Not only does it help smooth skin and wrinkles but it also is extremely hydrating.  It doesn’t feel greasy at all and seeps into your skin, giving your face a radiance.  My skin looked restored.  I used this after several sleepless nights and it literally brought the life back into my skin.  It’s true to it’s name- giving you your youthful skin back!  There isn’t a long list of ingredients but the ones that are in there are effective.  I also love using this before makeup.  My foundation glides on.  Bonus- my husband can use it too!  

HOLI(STICK)No. 3-  This is great for travel, when you want to pack light.  I personally love Agent Nature’s HOLI(ROSE) Deodorant!  It’s even a fave of mine for a while.  Check it out here!  

This box has a value of $130 but you can get it for $55!  The beauty of the Detox Box is you don’t have to commit to any amount of months.  You can simply just buy this one time box!  Pretty awesome.  Get the box here!

This Follain Everything Soap makes a great addition to any kitchen sink or shower.

Follain Everything Soaps

I’ve been a fan of these Everything Soaps for a while.  They’re packaging is so chic and really makes a statement on any sink counter or shower/bath.  They’re amber glass bottles with attached pumps.  What’s so cool about them is that you can refill them with the soap at any Follain store.  They have large soap dispensers there.  Don’t live next to a Follain, no worries!  Just buy the bottle and when you need to refill it, just use another soap.  If you’re wanting a natural soap but don’t love the look of plastic bottles, this is a great alternative.  Check them out here!

True Botanicals takes the cake when it comes to best natural skincare line!

True Botanicals 

If you’re like most moms your skin could use a little tlc.  In comes natural beauty powerhouse True Botanicals.  This line delivers results when it comes to giving you your youthful glow back.  The formulas are filled with antioxidants that deliver nutrients that will repair free radical damage.

I love their renew line and Antioxidant Booster and Repair Serum.  They offer so many lines depending on what skin type you have.  Renew is more for dry/mature skin, Clear is more for those who suffer from acne flare ups, their Calm line is made for those who suffer from rosacea or irritated skin.  They even have products for pregnancy!  If you’r not sure what line would be good for you, check out their skincare quiz here.  Also, shop all their products here!

The Detox Box is one of my favorite natural beauty boxes delivered monthly!

 

The Detox Box

I love this box!  It delivers natural beauty to your doorstep each month.  What’s cool about this box is that it offers not only skincare products, but also hair, and makeup.  So you’re not overloaded with one beauty product.  They also always offer some of the best brands!  I’m always impressed with their selections.  A great opportunity for your mom to experience green beauty firsthand without having to wade through all the product choices. Plus, the value is insane!  The box is $49.99 but is always valued over $100.  Check out the box here!

These two are the best when it comes to cream blushes in natural beauty.

Cream Blush

If you’ve followed me for a little bit, you know I love a good cream blush.  Especially for those with mature skin.  Powder blushes can settle into fine lines and look cakey.  Cream blushes make your skin look dewy and moist, bringing back the youthful glow.  I love Beautycounter’s Cream Blush Stick and Kjaer Weis Cream Blushes.

Love these organic sheets for SOL Organix!

 

Organic Sheets

Who wouldn’t love getting a new set of organic sheets?!  I have sheets from SOL Organics and love them.  They are soft, organic and keep me cool at night.  Great for going into summer when you want a cooler sheet set for the warmer months.  Conventional sheets are so toxic!

Since we spend about a 1/3 of our life in bed it’s important to know what were sleeping on.  Cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops.  Being doused with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  However, that’s not the only thing we should be concerned about.  Sheets often contain formaldehyde, and toxic dyes too.  There are also toxic softeners that are used now on bedding, creating a recipe for a toxic sleep experience!  Trust me, you’re mom will thank you when she sees a new organic sheet set.  Check them out here!

Love knowing that I’m protecting myself from harmful radiation with this phone case.

Safe Sleeve Phone Case

I recently got myself a Safe Sleeve phone case and have been so happy with it!  Protecting yourself from radiation from EMFs is so important with all the exposure we are receiving today.  A phone emits a good amount of radiation, since we constantly have our phones near or on us, it’s important to know how to protect ourselves.  Getting a Safe Sleeve Phone Case is one great option.   With a Safe Sleeve Case you block over 99% of RF and 92% of ELF radiation.  A gift any mom would appreciate!  Check them out here!

These Ray Ban sunglasses I got last year and I LOVE them!  They are so comfortable and stay on my face so well.  I always get so many compliments on them.  They are polarized too!  I love that I can put them up on my head too, and they don’t get caught in my hair- it’s totally the little things.  They also look super chic- which never hurts.  Check them out here!

Beautycounter’s Flawless in Five is a game changer when it comes to transitioning to natural beauty.

 

Flawless In Five

This is a great beginner set from Beautycounter for anyone who hasn’t made the jump into natural beauty.  It offers 6 staple makeup products.  A concealer, blush, lip gloss, mascara, eyebrow gel, and either Dew Skin- their tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 or their Tint Skin- A medium coverage foundation.  I can’t recommend this set enough!  It really takes the guesswork out of trying to get into natural beauty and also saves you a ton of money.  You’re mom will be looking great without the toxins!  Check out Flawless in Five here!
