5 Things I’m Loving… (#2)

IMG_0492

I’m back with my “5 Things I’m Loving” segment.  You can check out my first 5 Things I’m Loving post here if you missed it! This will now be a regular theme on my blog. Winter is here and with the weather being so much cooler I have many new products that I’ve integrated into my daily routine.

Evanhealy Whipped Shea Butter with Olive Leaf – This whipped butter has made me fall in love with oil-cleansing. I’ve always loved cleansing my face with oils but now that I have tried this whipped butter-like heaven I am a little obsessed. I use this three times a week and it keeps my skin hydrated, plump and clear of any blemishes. I am deeply in love with this product. Before I even ran out of my sample I purchased a full size and I can tell you right now before I get half-way through my full-size jar I will be repurchasing again. I will never go without this product, especially in the cooler months. Oh and the smell of this? Like a freshly baked (gluten free-for me) vanilla frosted cupcake! I couldn’t take it one day, so I actually tasted a bit of the cream on my tongue! It’s that pure. However, nowhere on Evan Healy’s site does this say that the whipped shea butter is  for “ingesting”…just saying!  I will have a full review of this product + more Evanhealy products (which my skin has been LOVING lately) very soon!

Konjac Sponge with French Pink ClayAfter using an oil-based cleanser to remove my makeup I  then use my new Konjac Sponge. This is such a wonderful product. I have both the pink and red  sponges and I think the pink is my favorite but I honestly love both. They exfoliate gently without ever irritating my incredibly sensitive skin and I can even use it to exfoliate my eye area which is so delicate and prone to eczema and dry patches in the winter. This has been the secret to keeping my skin clearer and assisting the  oils and moisturizers to apply and penetrate  so much better.

Miyu Beauty Hydrate Mi Tea – This is hands down my new favorite tea. I literally drink this every single day without fail. It’s absolutely delicious and sweet enough that I don’t find myself needing to add any honey. It contains Green Rooibos (contains nine types of flavonoids that aggressively fight free radicals so that complexions will look younger, longer), Goji Berries (naturally rich in vitamin C, necessary to promote collagen production to help keep skin smooth), Rose Petals (used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to improve circulation and soothe from within) and Snow Pear Essence and Candied Pearls for sweetness.

Lotus Wei Inner Peace Serum – This serum and every other  product from the “Inner Peace” Collection is helpful for high levels of stress, anxiety, nervousness, fear, lack of confidence and is helpful for experiencing deep peace, calm, confidence, comfort + contentment; strength + assuredness during times of high-stress. I love to use this oil-based serum on my hands and feet before bed every night. I also use this on my legs and I gently massage the oil into my calves, ankles, feet and hands. This is an incredibly relaxing routine that I look forward to doing every night. The calming and grounding scents of Lavender, Vetiver, Geranium and Allspice help to calm me and the lovely oils leave my skin feeling incredibly smooth.

Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Oil - I am so, so happy with this face oil. I recently purchased it at my local Co-Op.  I was curious to try more from the Damascus Rose collection so I also picked up the Damascus Rose Beauty Balm which I will talk about soon (it’s wonderful!!) but the Rose Face Oil in particular has stood out to me the most. I recently battled some hormonal acne which left me with hyperpigmentation. This oil has helped to diminish redness after just days of use. I use this every night on my face and it’s enough moisture that I don’t need any added creams. It smells and feels beautiful, and it’s quickly becoming one of my new favorite oils of all-time.

The Best of 2013

best of 2013

Happy New Year to All!!!

“You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you came from…”

Let’s take a look back at 2013, shall we?

Thank you all so much for helping and continuing to support me to do the thing I soooo love to do! Bring you honest reviews of natural & organic beauty, as well as  introduce you to niche companies that maybe you had never heard of before.

I love to discover. I love to find a company that has sustainable business practices as well as clean beautiful ingredients. One that also helps to make the world a better place by giving back to causes close to their heart. And finally by creating products that do what they promise.

2013 was a huge year for me personally as well as for  this site. Between being asked to be part of the Organic Beauty Talk Team, working with Eco Diva Beautycontributing to Lucky Magazine, being interviewed on MyChicLifeMarigtMaeArantha’s Gourmet Life, and Bailey Blush. And then reaching over 1,500 likes on my Facebook page!

Wow, it was a milestone year for me! Mostly because of YOU.  Because of your loyalty, comments and likes, these have meant the most to me. I’m honored that you allow me daily to help you navigate the “murky” waters of the cosmetic & beauty industry!

Attending A Night For Green Beauty Event in NYC  was one of the biggest highlights of all 2013 and being able to connect with so many like-minded individuals in this community and to be able to call so many of you friends has been the most amazing experience of this journey.

I discovered and re-discovered so many amazing brands and products this year. It was hard to narrow down my favorite stand-out products from the entire year. I am mentioning the brands and products that I used the most this year and that I recommended the most to friends, family members and readers.

CV Skinlabs was by far the best brand discovery for me in 2013. Between the Restorative Skin Balm which is my savior for eczema, the Calming Moisture Cream that completely cleared up my contact dermatitis (proof here), the Body Repair Lotion which is literally the only lotion I use on my skin currently because it helps rid me of ANY itching! The Rescue + Relief Spray which helps to set makeup and relieve any skin irritations such as itching, redness, eczema, etc. This entire line has been a miracle in my life. I recommend this brand to literally everyone.

R.L. Linden & Co Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist was such a blessing to discover. I have said this before and I will say it again: I have no idea how I ever lived without this uniquely refreshing, hydrating and calming facial mist. It doubles as the perfect complexion pick-me-up as well as an aromatherapy treatment.

I simplified my cleansing routine drastically this year because my skin was incredibly sensitive. The one consistent cleanser I reached for throughout the year was Pai Skincare Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. It doubles as a face and eye makeup remover and it’s gentle enough to use every day.

I found my holy-grail pesky blemish fighter in Osmia Organics Spot Treatment which literally works overnight for me at getting rid of any breakouts. I also have to mention Osmia Organics Active Gel Nutrient Serum because it’s the best oil-free serum I have ever used. Any redness is instantly diminished within one use of this product. It is a genius product.

My favorite oil-based serum for all of 2013 was One Love Organics Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Serum. It does what is claims to do; brighten, as well as moisturizing and  triples as the the perfect pre-makeup primer.

My go-to foundation and SPF of choice most of 2013 was Jane Iredale’s DreamTint Tinted Moisturizer. It was the only foundation I would wear while my skin was reacting and I found the coverage was just enough to cover any redness while still letting my skin breathe.

May Lindstrom Skin The Problem Solver was my favorite mask all of 2013. Perfect for spot treating or for using on nights when your skin needs a little extra love.

The best blush hands down goes to Kjaer Weis Desired Glow. It gives the most beautiful color to the cheeks and you just can’t get much sleeker which packaging! Did I mention the formulation? Like cream and silk combined~

RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer made me a believer in bronzers.  It somehow manages to work on all skin-tones including extremely fair skin like mine! It never looks muddy or orange and blends beautifully as an all-over bronzer and to contour.

Ilia Beauty Neon Angel Lipstick was my favorite lipstick find for the entire year. It is so pigmented and long-wearing.

I helped to keep my anxiety at bay the last few months with H.Gillerman Organics Stress Remedy. This blend has helped to combat stress, anxiety and panic attacks. It also really helps with insomnia. I cannot say enough good things about all of Hope’s remarkable blends!’

***
May 2014 bring you all Health, Peace & Happiness and remember to keep Living Beautifully, from the Inside/ Out, of course!!

Look for more beautiful and wonderful things coming soon,

Blessings,

Beauty Buzz | Elizabeth Dehn For One Love Organics Active Moisture Vitamin E Eye Balm

VitaminEEyeBalm-500x500

full size is 15 ml | 0.5 oz and retails for $48.00 / photo credit: One Love Organics

***

After my last review of the One Love Organics Morning Glory Serum I have become more and more impressed with One Love Organics and their products. I have very sensitive skin and when the winter months roll around my skin becomes even more sensitive. Unfortunately I am prone to eczema, especially around my delicate eye area. I have suffered from a number of severe eczema bouts around my eye area that made me so concerned about putting any eye cream near my skin that I actually swore off of eye creams altogether for a long time. I just couldn’t find anything that didn’t make that area feel even more sensitive. That is until I find this Vitamin E Balm

Elizabeth Dehn For One Love Organics Active Moisture Vitamin E Eye Balm contains powerful blend of vitamins A, D & E and active antioxidants, this luxurious, intensely hydrating waterless eye balm melts into skin to restore radiance to the delicate eye area. Organic fennel, a natural anti-inflammatory, helps to reduce puffiness. Pomegranate, Eyebright and Ginseng naturally lift and plump while providing continuous hydration throughout the day.

Why do I love this eye balm? For starters it sinks right into the skin without leaving over a greasy residue (unless you apply a lot). I even use this in the morning, under my makeup and it not only helps my concealer to look more natural but it gets rid of that dryness that looks even worse when you apply concealer! This has made me look forward to applying my under eye concealer because I know that I won’t look like a cakey mess when wearing it. I even notice a difference in my dark circles when I use this every night. That is saying a lot because I suffer from pretty bad dark circles. The scent is very subtle. A mix of Fennel and Lavender. Very relaxing and not even slightly over powering.

Let’s take a look at the wonderful ingredients in this beautiful balm:

Ingredients: Raw Organic Shea Butter, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Pomegranate Sterols, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Vitamin E, Raw Raspberry Seed Oil, Eyebright Extract, Organic American Ginseng Extract, Organic Licorice Root Extract, Organic Lavender Root Extract, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Fennel Oil.

I can’t stress enough that the littlest bit goes the longest way. For $48 this jar will last you an incredibly long time. I have a sample of this eye balm and although I can see it lasting me months and months, I do still want to purchase the full size jar just because I love it that much.

You can purchase the Vitamin E Balm on Amazon, on One Love Organics or Eco Diva Beauty.

How To Become a Natural Beauty Warrior

It’s been a little over a year since I began my journey to switching over to all natural & organic products. I can’t believe how far so many of us have come in such a short period of time. I just had to make this post because I firmly believe that; There is no sane reason to subject ourselves to the chemical onslaught that is included in so many  traditional beauty products!  There are so many natural alternatives!

*The 515 Chemicals Women Put on Their Bodies Every Day
chemicals-on-the-body

***

When I saw this incredible info-graphic picture from MindBodyGreen.com I just had to re-blog it (again). In fact I featured this photo on this post over a year ago. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? I wanted to write about it again because sometimes we all get into a rut with buying the same thing over and over again. We need a little push. We don’t take the time to do our research. We are worth it. If we don’t take care of ourselves, then who will?

 

Where To Start?

There is reputable information everywhere to enable to us to make the switch. Start by searching trusted and respected natural and organic beauty blogs and websites. Don’t forget about your local bookstore! Or search on Amazon and read all the reviews and comments for a book that looks informative. No more excuses. Some people hesitate because they feel the natural way is more expensive. It’s clearly not. You can find so many basic food grade beauty ingredients at your grocery store. There are hundreds of tutorials on YouTube that show you exactly “how to”. You can check out my DIY recipes for many different beauty concoctions. Or another of my favorite resources for instructions on DIY beauty is Mountain Rose Herbs.Your body is your temple~ Treat it exquisitely and with tender loving care. Please. I feel so proud to be a part of this “Green Beauty Revolution”. Together we are changing the future of not only our individual health, but our future children. We are also contributing to preserving our precious Mother Earth. Now that’s a cause to be proud of.
 

Take a Stand

We won’t stand for the cancer causing “questionable” ingredients in mainstream “beauty” products any longer. Or their multilevel advertising propaganda. What a waste of money. We are fully aware of the corrupt marketing that companies employ to try and paint their products as healthy. It’s just so unethical. Often I reach for my very worn and dogeared copy of Siobhan O’Connor’s incredible book, “No More Dirty Looks”. It never ceases to inspire me to keep “fighting the fight” toward a healthy and sustainable future for us all. We can choose to make our voices heard through our dollars. The money we spend can speak for us and show support to the brands that we trust and that are in business for our benefit. Support companies you know that combine organic & natural sustainably sourced products with ethical business practices. Many of the small women owned companies that I do business with rely on word of mouth and miniscule advertising budgets. They believe in putting their hard earned dollars into superior efficacious  beauty materials. Clean, organic and sometimes exotic ingredients are sourced by these talented artisans .These are small businesses with integrity. They believe in life affirming principles and the old adage, “Do No Harm”. You read about them here on my blog. They are my go-to companies.

Make The Switch

Remember there is absolutely NO reason for us not to be more conscious about what we are applying to our skin. There is no shortage of highly-pigmented, long-lasting and delicious natural alternatives on the market compared to the chemically laden products we’ve all been so accustomed to using in the past.

Between my reviews, wonderful and informative blogs like Organic Beauty Talk, No More Dirty Looks, The Green Beauty Team, and some of my favorite blogs, there is incredibly useful information and more reasons then ever to make the switch over to non-toxic products.

I hope you will join me. There is power in numbers!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

What’s on my Wishlist…

wishlist2

I was inspired to start doing Wishlist posts after constantly adding things to my wishlist thanks to the lovely Seed To Serum and her weekly wishlists that I am always going crazy over. I am not sure I will do it every week but definitely at least every month or at least when I have enough products I am obsessing over, which is quite honestly, all the time. I am a self-proclaimed product junkie and the only thing that makes me feel better about my addiction is the fact that the products I obsess over are all healthy and good for your skin!

Onto the goodies…

  1. Ilia Beauty Multi-Stick in “All Of Me” - Ilia is one of the natural brands I still have yet to try but have been eying for a very long time. I hear so many rave reviews about their multi-sticks and I have seen many fellow natural bloggers wearing and raving about this specific shade which looks right up my alley.
  2. Roots Rose Radish Blue Chamomile Face Cream – I have been oogling and ogling at this company for quite a few months now. Between the beautiful name of the company, their stunning packaging and the clean ingredients, this brand is one that I must try eventually, especially this cream which sounds like heaven.
  3. Kjaer West Mascara – So I still have yet to find “THE” best natural mascara out there (I am on a constant hunt) and this new mascara which is rich in clean ingredients really, really caught my eye. The brush looks like something I would really love and the packaging is just so classy.
  4. Ilia Beauty Lipstick Crayon in “Karma Chameleon” – Another Ilia product I am dying to try. These lip crayons are a new release and it seems like almost everyone in the natural community is talking about these. I am personally drooling over this specific color because it looks so bright and beautiful for Spring and Summer!
  5. RMS Beauty Oil – Oh how I love RMS Beauty. I have yet to try any of Rose-Marie’s skincare products from the line and this facial oil sounds so decadent that I just must have it! I have heard it works wonders with the “Un” Cover-Up which is a daily essential of mine, so it makes me need this product even more. (see how I justify my addictions?) :)
  6. Kjaer West Eyeshadow in “Cloud Nine” – The entire collection of Kjaer West eyeshadows look so delicate and luxurious. I am a sucker for packaging and their packaging is so sleek and classy. This shade seems like it would be the perfect all over lid color as well as a wonderful highlighting shade! WANT!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts? Any products you are lusting over? I’d love to know what is on all of your wishlists!

What I’ve Used Up | Fall 2012 Beauty Product Empties

I have never done an empties post before but was intrigued to do it. I have a horrible habit of not finishing products up. Although I “hit pan” every now and then, It is very rare that I finish any product as I am always trying out so many different products and never seem to reach the end of something. Lately I have been trying to change that and am motivated to start finishing things before I purchase or try out anything new. I think doing these empties posts is a great way to show readers the things I am currently using and the things that I use the most and also to do mini reviews on everything.

Onto the empties:

 IMG_0813

Osmia Organics Rose Clay Facial Soap(review here) – You can barely see the teeny tiny reminisce of soap left over but I used up the entire soap bar over the course of a few months or more. It lasted me quite awhile. I repurchased this soap immediately after using it up as it’s a staple of mine. It works wonders at removing makeup and doesn’t dry my skin out one bit.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Osmia Organics Body Oil: Wood(review here) – I had a tiny amount of this oil left when I took this photo but used it up soon after. It is super moisturizing and wonderful to apply on wet skin after getting out of the shower. The smell is extremely relaxing. I will definitely be purchasing more of Osmia’s body oils.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Osmia Organics Purely Simple Facial Cream (review here) – It took me awhile to use up this sample because a little bit goes a long way. I now have the full-size version because it’s my go-to moisturizer. Whenever my skin is feeling dry or irritated, I know that I can count on this cream to calm and hydrate my skin.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil – I have used up two bottles of Tea Tree Oil in the past few months. I love this stuff. I use it for everything from spot treating acne, cleaning my bathroom, adding in to face masks and hair washes, cuts, etc. It’s an essential.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Leahlani Skincare Aloe Day Dream Cream (review here) – This is another sample that I used up quite fast. It was wonderful to use as a daily moisturizer and I love how fast it absorbed into my skin. I love everything from this line and think this is a great daytime moisturizer.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sugared Beauty Happy Face Scrub – This scrub was featured in my one of my Goodeboxes and I instantly fell in love with it. Right after running out of this scrub I placed an order for a full-size version and am currently using it nightly. I plan to a full review on it soon because I really, really love it.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Simple Sugars Sugar and Spice Body Scrub – This body scrub featured in my November Goodebox.I seriously used this up really fast because it smelled SO GOOD and made my skin feel really soft and moisturized. I am not sure if I will purchase a full size as I tend to make my own body scrubs.  The scent of this is very unique though and if I were to purchase a body scrub it would most likely be this one!
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

BFree Organics Facial Toner(review here) – I used this toner up pretty fast as I literally used it every single night after cleansing to remove excess makeup and to help fight blemishes.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Nature’s Gate Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner – I really love this shampoo and conditioner but have since switched over to only using oils to clean my hair (see my current haicare routine blog post here) I had no intentions of changing over to anything else when using this shampoo and conditioner but I found that the ingredients just weren’t as clean as I would like and I also wanted to try to do the “No-’Poo” method for at least six months to see how my hair responded. If I do decide to go back to using natural shampoo again I will probably use this again as I just love the smell of it so, so much and it makes my hair feel so soft.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Heritage Rosewater and Glycerin Spray – I go through bottles of these all the time because I use it for just about everything and many times throughout the day. It works wonderful as a facial moisturizer and body moisturizer. It is great for spraying on the hair. It is so incredibly moisturizing. I even dedicated an entire video about it on my youtube awhile back. I swear by this for glowing skin!
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Lauren Brooke Creme Concealer- I had a sample of this concealer in “Light” and it lasted me quite awhile. Luckily I have another back up concealer sample to finish before I purchase the full size. It is definitely one of my favorite concealers — it is very creamy and perfect for covering redness and blemishes. I like it for under my eyes too but it does tend to crease throughout the day.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Tom’s Of Maine Simply White Toothpaste - This is my favorite natural toothpaste that I have found so far. I plan to try out others since running out of this but it really is a great toothpaste. Helps to whiten my teeth and leaves my mouth feeling extra clean.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Rainwater Botanicals Pumpkin Facial Mask - Wonderful product. A few months ago I had breakouts left and right and I had some hyper-pigmentation left over. After using this sample within a few weeks the redness and irritation was completely gone. It smells like delicious pumpkin and spice. It stings a little bit but that just means it’s working! I will be getting myself a full size version of this because it’s nice to know it’s there in case I need to clear up any pigmentation or blemishes! It works FAST.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sequoia Beauty Honey Berry Enzyme Mask (review here) -This sample was not hard for me to use up within a matter of days. It is just so delicious. The scent, the texture – everything about it. I am sad to be out of it already because my skin literally craves it now! it is so incredibly moisturizing and did I say delicious!?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I would love to know if you like to see these types of posts from me or not. If so I will continue to do them!!

Britanie

Look Of The Day | Dramatic Smokey Eye and Subtle Pink Lips

6

I had the desire to do a super dark, smokey-eye look using only clean ingredients as I haven’t done a dramatic look like this in quite some time!

This look is really easy to do. It only took me fifteen minutes! It’s perfect for a night out, but not too intense that you couldn’t wear it during the day!

When you do a dark eye-look I always recommend going lighter on the lips so that your lips and your eyes aren’t competing for the intensity!

I know that when considering switching over to non-toxic products that a lot of people are concerned that the products won’t work as well and that you won’t be able to achieve such a glamorous and pigmented look with natural and organic ingredients. This is not true! Proof is shown below :)

I have decided to start making videos on my YouTube channel again. I really have slacked off on doing so because I created this blog and am so passionate about it that I put all of my focus here. I do, however, want to start making videos every few weeks or so. My main priority will always be my blog but I think it will be nice to have a few tutorials and things of that nature once and awhile! So definitely check out my channel for future videos!

look of the day | subtle purple sparkle

I really love purple eyeshadow especially for brown eyes. I think it really adds a wide awake look to the entire face. I added subtle shimmer to the inner corner of the lids to further brighten the look. This was my first time using the Lip Plumpers from Jane Iredale and I love them! They are super moisturizing and wear really well. This color paired perfectly with the look I was going for.
