5 Men-Approved Nontoxic Products

June 16, 2017

As a true beauty fanatic, I enjoy continually trying new products until I find the ones that work just right for me. My husband? Not so much. It has been a long road to find ones that are effective, do not cause skin irritation, and are not exorbitantly expensive (I mean we all want a good deodorant, but I just can’t justify spending $40 a pop!). After patiently experimenting with a variety of cleanly-formulated alternatives to his usuals, he found…

How I Am Keeping My Skin Summer Worthy With OY-L

June 13, 2017

Summer recently arrived here and with it, shorts season. I knew that my legs were in need of some good exfoliation, but what I was not prepared for was a drier than normal face. While my skin is not chronically dry, I do have patches of flakiness pop up from time to time and unfortunately, this is one of those seasons. After gushing over their beautiful pictures on Instagram, I recently took the plunge and picked up a couple of…

The Foundation That Is Holy Grail Worthy

May 8, 2017

A smooth, flawless face with every blemish and spot concealed. Coverage without cakeyness, plus a dose of natural glow that somehow manages to look even better as the day goes on. That’s not too much to ask, right? I had been doubting that possibility ever since calling it quits on my beloved Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation a couple of years ago. I tried Honest Beauty’s Everything Cream Foundation, W3ll People’s Narcissist Foundation Stick, and the Jane Iredale Glow…

New To The Family: Ilia, Antonym, and Han

April 28, 2017

Around the time I decided to take the plunge on a few wishlist items last week came the realization that all of them could be found on the Credo Beauty site (does anyone else endlessly search for that one website where you can find every item on your list?). I’ve never ordered from Credo, so I was excited to see what the experience was like from their company. For standard shipping, my order arrived surprisingly fast (2-3 days, I believe)…

April 2017 Beauty Heroes: Lilfox

April 19, 2017

This month’s Beauty Hero selection was enough to make me giddy when unpacking the box. It is brought to us by none other than the glorious Lilfox, with which I had zero previous experience. This brand was founded by Alexis Rose, a woman who has maintained a fascination and passion for plant alchemy since childhood. Her line of thoughtfully crafted products is notorious for the playful packaging, which features a floral design. The Hero product this month is the Jungle…

How I Clean My Home

April 14, 2017

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning, so I thought I’d share my tips with you. One of the first and easiest things I did to rid my home of unnecessary chemicals is to switch to using natural cleaning products. Not only is it better for our health, but I have found that it saves our family a lot of money. It gives me peace of mind when using them around children, and I feel better while cleaning now that we…

Testing Juice Beauty Skincare

April 5, 2017

I got this kit from my husband as a Christmas gift and am finally now getting around to reviewing it. Its only been what, four months? I have tried makeup from the Juice Beauty line before and liked most of it. Most recently I picked up their Flawless Finishing Powder in ‘Translucent,’ which has now found a place in my daily makeup routine. I was pretty excited to get to try their skincare items via the Juice Beauty Daily Hydrating…

Skin + Body Care Empties

March 21, 2017

The beginning of a new year usually ignites in me the urge to declutter and deep clean my house. This year that didn’t hit until about mid-February, which was around the time that my obsession with watching minimalism videos on Youtube coincided with a period of using shiz up. Is there anything more satisfying? Hence, my first empties post is here! I think I can now officially call myself a blogger. I have been so inspired recently to continue cleaning…
