It’s been a minute since I last shared some of my favorite recent beauty finds. Let’s do this!
St. Tropez Tanning Essentials Self Tan Bronzing Lotion Face– The best self-tanner for your face! Not only gives you a natural looking glow, but is paraben-free and specially formulated for the face so it doesn’t clog pores or irritate skin.
c. Booth Honey Almond Firming Body Lotion– Free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil or petrolatum, this natural moisturizer is ultra light and absorbs quickly for a grease-free finish. I love the subtly sweet scent and how this luxurious, antioxidant-rich lotion drenches skin in moisture, helping to reignite a firmer, more toned appearance…it’s legit!
Marc Anthony True Professional Dream Waves Beach Spray– This delicious, creamy coconut-ness smells exactly like surfboard wax. Intoxicating! And addicting. Far from your average salt spray, it transforms even the straightest hair into soft, flowing, loose waves, adding body and texture. Hydrolyzed Silk and Provitamin B5 protect while adding moisture and shine.
Origins Clear Improvement(TM) Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores– Formulated without Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates, activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China clay absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities. I can feel the mask tingling and working and notice an immediate difference in my skin- it draws junk up to the surface of the skin to speed up the healing process. I’ve had great results using this once a week.
Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum– This botanical blend of pore-decongesting ingredients is a must-have for acne-prone and problem skin types to keep ugly breakouts from happening. Salicylic acid formula helps dissolve dead skin cells and excess oil to improve the clarity of your skin.
One Love Organics® My New Best Friend Skin Shammy– These dirt-trapping microfiber cloths are super soft and meet dermatologists’ standards for gentle effectiveness. They give your skin the daily deep cleanse it craves while cutting down on the amount of product you need to use. Love them!
Waxelene All Natural Petroleum Jelly Alternative– Made of only four natural & organic ingredients, it’s deeply moisturizing with beeswax, soy oil, vitamin E oil and a splash of delicious rosemary oil. Petroleum is terrible for the body, so I was thrilled to finally try this natural alternative! It’s saved my sunburnt, lightly cracked lips overnight more than once this summer!
And finally my favorite favorite, bare soaps! 100% natural and made “with love, for love”. Co-founders Clare and Jessie are two kick-ass girls who strive to provide an affordable luxury for anyone who is seeking an all natural alternative to the commercial “soaps”. These artisan soaps are handmade with care, eco-friendly, and socially conscious! The packaging is plantable (awesome, right?!) and 20% of proceeds are invested in one village in Uganda to help them become self sustainable (bare stands for Bringing Antiseptic Resources to Everyone), so there’s a dual purpose to the soap!
I loved all four that I tried, including Cupid’s Love (rose clay & lavender- calming and relaxing) and Sunkissed (calendula petals & lavender, great for reducing inflammation, anxiety and preventing muscle spasms), but my two personal favorites are The Sunshine Bar (fresh cut orange scent with anti-bacterial turmeric and poppy seeds for exfoliation) and Starry Night (made with activated charcoal and amazing at removing make up!). Pick up a sample pack for yourself and stock up for eco-friendly gifts that really make a difference!
