Green Beauty Collaboration | Products I’d Repurchase

My good friend Brianna had a brilliant idea of collaborating with other green beauty bloggers to do a tag where we either make a blog post or video (or both) showing and talking about the products we would or have repurchased. You can see her original post and rules here. I thought this was a great idea and knew that I wanted to participate since I am a lover of beauty products and I would definitely repurchase more items that I own but these were the main ones that came to mind.

If I were to run out of any of these I would have to immediately go find them! I ended up picking 16 – I went a little overboard!

MAKEUP:

  1. Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Bronzer – I love this bronzer because it is great for my fair skin. I also love that it’s affordable and easy to find!
  2. Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream – The best liquid foundation/tinted moisturizer I have yet to find. This BB cream provides full coverage and a beautiful long-lasting finish.
  3. Jane Iredale Amazing Base Mineral Foundation – My new HG foundation. I don’t know how I managed to go so long without this foundation. I love it so much. It gives the perfect amount of coverage and doesn’t irritate my skin like many mineral foundations tend to do. It is talc and bismuth-oxychloride free and great for sensitive skin!
  4. Vapour Organic Beauty Muti-Use Blush – Courtesan is my favorite blush shade, possibly ever. I wear this blush whenever I wear makeup. It goes on so creamy and lasts all day. I am a huge fan of all of Vapour’s products but their blushes are one of my favorite items.
  5. RMS Beauty Living Luminizer – Wonderful, must-have product. There are so many uses for this. It instantly brightens any area of the face.
  6. Gabriel Cosmetics Lipstick – This lipstick color in “Pomegranate” is my all-time favorite red lipstick. It is perfect and is also gluten-free!
  7. MarieNatie Cosmetics Lip Gloss – I have done a review on these glosses before. This color is “Love Struck” and it’s the perfect bright pink shade.
  8. Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer – Such a wonderful concealer! I plan to do a review on this and show how amazing this concealer works for dark circles.

 

SKINCARE:

  1. Suki Skincare Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser – I love this cleanser because the tiniest bit goes the longest way. I love how it lathers and cleanses my face. I only use this once a week and have had amazing results. It also smells so fresh like lemon-grass!
  2. SkinOwl Geranium Argan Infusion Oil – I recently did a review on all of SkinOwl’s Argan Infusion Oils. I am obsessed with all of the oils but especially the Geranium. It suits my skin type so well and moisturizes beautifully. My skin has never looked softer and more supple since I started using this oil.
  3. Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Cream – My new HG facial cream. This helps my dry skin and is so calming. I have already repurchased another tube!
  4. Alba Botanica UN-Petroleum Jelly – I use this for deep cleansing on my face, for my lips, hands, body and for dry patches on my skin. This is a wonderful product.
  5. Osmia Organics Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair – My all-time favorite lip product that I cannot be without. I always have a back up of this. review here.

 

HAIR & BODY:

  1. Dr Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap – I have a bunch of these liquid soaps around my house. I use this to wash my hands, body and sometimes my hair.
  2. Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque – I recently discovered this line at Target and was so excited to see that they were selling organic and natural products. This hair masque was $7.99 and although it says it is for “dry, damaged hair” it works great on all types and leaves my hair feeling so silky and soft.
  3. Bijabody Daily Body Serum – Best smelling body product I have ever used. I love that this is a spray bottle so you can easily spritz this oil on your damp skin after getting out of the shower and it moisturizes so well. The beautiful scent lasts all day and leaves your skin looking silky and beautiful!

Aquarian Bath | Cinnamon Stick Tooth Powder for Cleaner, Whiter Teeth!

You might think the idea of cleaning your teeth without using toothpaste sounds strange but in fact it’s quite amazing and so much healthier for you and your teeth!

Many natural toothpastes can often throw in a few not-so-great ingredients in them and many contain Baking Soda which is fine in small quantities but when used too much or too often it can wear the enamel off of your teeth. All of the Tooth Powders from Aquarian Bath contain no baking soda.

I have been using the Cinnamon Stick Tooth Powder by Aquarian Bath (you can also find them on Etsy) for over a few weeks in place of my usual Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. If you are looking for an all natural, completely clean, affordable and non-abrasive tooth powder then definitely check out this powder. Since using this powder in such a short time I have noticed that my teeth are whiter and less sensitive and I also feel like this powder cleans better than any toothpaste I have ever tried (chemical-filled or not). It doesn’t irritate my gums like many toothpastes tend to do and I never experience tooth sensitivity anymore which I used to quite a bit, especially when drinking cold or hot drinks. I am proud to say that I am now a tooth powder convert!

This tooth powder is pretty much the most natural way you could clean your teeth but when used regularly you will see how these few (and incredibly potent) ingredients will help to not only whiten your teeth but heal gums and fight any bacteria or bath breath. It also leaves your teeth looking and feeling smoother and healthier within just a few uses.

***

Let’s take a look at the ingredients and the benefits of each:

Ingredients: Bentotine Clay, Organic Cinnamon Powder, Activated Charcoal, 5x Myrrh Powder, and Organic Stevia.

Benefits:

  • Bentonite Clay and Activated Charcoal help to detoxify and wash away bacteria from the mouth.
  • Activated Charcoal helps to whiten teeth.
  • Myrrh extract powder helps to tone the gums.
  • Cinnamon has been used for dental care prior to the invention and regular use of toothpaste and can help prevent cavities.

How To Use:

Note: Because of the natural darkness of the Activated Charcoal, you will need to take extra care when rinsing your mouth. Make sure to rinse until there is no residue left over. The powder is very easy to rinse off. Make sure to clean out your sink immediately after brushing as the Charcoal can tend to leave a dark residue left over!

**Do not add water to the jar of dry powder. Only add water to the palm of your hand or directly to your brush and massage gently into your palm to pick up the powder on the bristles.

Price, Size and Where To Purchase: This tooth powder comes in a 1 oz ($4.95) or 2 oz ($6.95) container. You can purchase this powder or any other tooth powder directly on Aquarian Bath’s Website or on their Etsy Shop.

Other Flavors: If you aren’t a fan of Cinnamon, no worries! This tooth powder comes in Mint, Black Licorice, & Berry Hibiscus.

Have you ever tried this or any other Tooth Powders? If so what were your experiences? I’d love to hear your thoughts and if you would ever be interested in trying out something like this!
