I’m nearly too tired to function and it’s only Tuesday. It was a busy weekend moving into my new place, but it all went well. Combined with coursework and not enough sleep, I’m feeling a little exhausted. You know what I always have enough energy for though? Shopping.
A few months ago I did a post about all the green beauty products I’d love to try and surprise, surprise, there’s more to add to the list. Trying new makeup and skincare is so much fun. Is there anyone that doesn’t like it? If there is, then this isn’t the post for you. I love every part of it, especially reviewing it for all of you. Anyway, enough of my sleepy rambling. Let’s get into the products.
Everything featured today is available on Petit Vour. Not sponsored (though I wish), I just love them because everything they carry is vegan, cruelty free and nontoxic. Plus, you get 20% back in store credit. So it’s basically a dream.
1. Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme Masque– This is quite possibly the most festive face mask I’ve ever seen and I’m into it. Pumpkin banishes dull skin, and the orange, cinnamon, allspice and ginger surely have great benefits too, but all I can think about it how delicious this must smell! The ingredients almost look like a pie recipe. If you seriously love fall, this is the one for you.
2. After creating my halo eye tutorial, I decided that a wash of color all over my lids was my go-to look. It’s a little disheveled and while that might not normally be a positive adjective for makeup, I like it. A cream shadow would be great for that look, but I don’t want potted ones because I always have long nails. Cue the Au Naturale Creme de la Creme Eye Shadows. They are conveniently in stick form and there are 15 shades to choose from. I love the browns and greens, but there are bright blues, yellow and pinks if those are more your style.
3. I love my glow, but I do not love the shiny under eyes I always seem to end up with. The 100 Percent Pure Bamboo Blur Powder is pricey ($39) but it’s supposed to control shine while smoothing fine lines and pores. I think this could be an oily girl’s, or shiny under eyed girl, best friend. I haven’t tried anything from 100% Pure I didn’t like, so even though it’s 4 times the price of my usual powder, I don’t think I’ll be disappointed.
4. I’m a must wear nail polish all the time kind of girl. There’s just something about painted nails that makes me feel more together and just a little happier. All of the Habit Cosmetics Nail Polishes look gorgeous, but the shade retrograde, a true olive, is calling to me. I always wear dark muted colors or nudes, so if you like those kinds of shades too, I think this could be a winner.
5. You know those brands that you always see, but no nothing about? That’s what OSEA is for me. After finally looking into their skincare, the Hyaluronic Sea Serum made its way right on to my wish list. Hyaluronic acid is wonderful for hydrating and plumping your skin. I’ve been meaning to it add to my skincare routine for months now because I’m on the dry side. This serum also has seaweed extracts and apparently my skin loves aquatic plants. The only problem is the $88 price tag. I believe in investing in your skincare, but that’s a bit too much for my student budget.
6. Though the 100% Pure BB Cream has been good to me, I’m always on the lookout for other base products. The Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream is constantly popping up on green beauty blogs and Instagram accounts. I love a natural glowy finish and no fuss makeup, so I think I’d enjoy this. I’m curious how it compares to my beloved BB cream. If you’ve tried both, please share your thoughts.
7. Another option is the Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation. What can I say, I love skincare infused makeup. Though dewy light to medium coverage is my choice for everyday wear, sometimes I want flawless skin. Don’t we all? The reviews are very inconsistent, but the common thread is great coverage. I just want to see for myself what it’s like.
8. Honestly, hair care isn’t very interesting to me, but the Rahua Voluminous Spray intrigued me. It’s an alcohol free hair spray and volumizer. Better yet, the essential oils are said to break down excess oil, keeping hair fresher longer. I almost forgot, it’s even USDA certified organic. It sounds like an all-in-one product that’s too good to be true, so naturally I’m skeptically but want to buy it immediately.
9. Not exactly a beauty product, but it is pretty to look at. Petit Vour is expanding to lifestyle and apparel, which is very exciting, but bad for my wallet. The Little Barn Apothecary Soy Candles caught my eye because they’re clean, cute and feature some interesting scents. I’m most attracted to Rosemary and Lemon. I love bright fresh scents and I think it would fit the bill.
10. After falling in love with another Au Naturale lip product (more on that later this week), I really want to try their su/Stain Lip Stain. It’s supposed to have serious staying power while still feeling light and moisturizing, which is everything I want. Typically, long-lasting products have toxic ingredients, but not only are these lip stains clean, they are organic, ethically sourced and made with Eco Cert pigments for $25. That sounds perfect to me, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing my review soon.
Are you interested in any of these products? Have you tried any? Let me know and if you have any reviews of them feel free to link them below. I’m curious to see what’s on your wish list so share that too!
