Much to my dismay, as soon as the season changes, so does my skin and it’s not for the better. Winter typically means dry irritated skin that nothing can seem to heal. This year, I’m taking preventive action and saving my skin from winter before snow even hits the ground.
You know those giveaways that you always enter, but never win? Yeah, me too, except I actually won an Au Naturale lipstick giveaway! I think you won too because now I can review and swatch three shades of their Eternity Lipsticks, so you know how they perform. Let’s get to it.
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.
So far this autumn we’ve talked about my fall wardrobe essentials, how to eat seasonally and I thought it was only right to include a festive makeup tutorial because I, like most, love warm reddish tones on the eyes. Today I’m showing you how to create this easy halo eye look using all nontoxic, vegan and cruelty free makeup. I love how cool, effortless and a little grungy it looks. I could happily wear this everyday. I’m not even good at applying eye shadow either, so if I can do this, you totally can.
It feels like I just shared my September favorites, but somehow I already have a few things I’m itching to share. I would save them for an October favorites post, but I have something a little different planned for the end of the month, which I think you’ll enjoy. As for today, there will some products and some rambling because it’s Sunday and on Sundays, we keep it casual.
Happy Friday! I thought we’d do something a bit different and fun today. Some of my favorite posts to write are green beauty reviews and you all seem to love them too. My last review was rather luxurious and it made me wonder what other high priced items are worth every penny. Here are five nontoxic, vegan and cruelty-free beauty products that are totally splurge-worthy.
Up until this point I’ve featured what I deem to be fairly affordable products, but today I’m breaking the routine. We’re talking green beauty luxury, specifically the Triesta Organics moisturizing haircare collection that retails for $110. Quality natural, cruelty free and vegan beauty products are usually a bit more expensive, but this is a new level. A few months ago they ran a promotion to get the whole set for just $15, so I had to try it.
Should you invest in your haircare? Let’s find out.
It’s not often that I make an impulse purchase, but I made a sneaky detour into my grocery store’s natural beauty section, which is surprisingly great, and I saw the Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Treatment. You know I love their seriously glowing serum and brightening scrub, so I decided to give it a try. The claims? Reduce blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, which are all too familiar to me. I’ve used it for one month now and honestly, I’m conflicted.
A few weeks ago, I gave my skincare routine a little makeover. My previous routine was preventing my skin from getting worse, but I knew it could be better. I finally changed how I cleanse my skin and it changed everything! All this time, I’ve been focusing on finding the right serums and moisturizers when how I washed my face was the culprit.
I’ve been aware of oil cleansing for a couple years and used it to take off my makeup, but I never realized what a difference oil could make by using it as my primary cleanser. The best part? It’s suitable for all skin types! If you have dry, oily, mature, acne prone, textured, irritated or sensitive skin, you have to try oil cleansing. My skin is the best it’s been in years.
I love when my hair is done. When I have effortless voluminous waves and bangs that are behaving, I just feel a bit better. Love good hair days, hate doing my hair. Are you with me? We don’t often talk about hair here, but I thought it was time I shared how I wash mine about once a week and maintain my look with minimal effort.
