April 2017 eco- beauty favorites
Am I the only one ready for some actual serious sunshine? Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for the rain and etc… but some bright days are highly needed in my life! Ya feel me?
We just celebrated Earthday, have you done anything special for our generous mother Earth?
I have decided to be less wasteful. I know that’s ambitious and a bit pretentious some might say…
That’s why I am doing it one step at a time, starting little. As of last month, I will only be using reusable face wipes. I found those super soft organic bamboo face wipes from Amazon prime. I looove them! They are advertised as baby towels. I got some for my daughter and snag half a dozen for myself! They are strong, soft, 100 percent organic bamboo. I haven’t had any issue with getting them clean. You know those wipes that get really yucky with stains just after a few uses? These are perfect!
I am finally out of all foundations! Luckily I have a long wishlist waiting for me to dive in! Don’t get it twisted I still love my Alima Pure liquid silk foundation, and Juice beauty foundation will always be my go to for Winter!
But, this Zero gravity foundation from Au Naturale cosmetics is a winner! That’s my first try at stick foundation. I am impressed. It applies really well, no tugging, smooth and nice coverage! Although it’s intended for dry to normal skin, my oily self really like it! It gives me natural coverage, long lasting when topped with a great setting powder.
Talking about setting powder, the only one I have used is the pressed mineral powder from Honeybee gardens for all over my face since I switched to green beauty and I don’t plan on switching anytime soon! It’s talc free, fragrance-free with the most beautiful finish! The color sultana is spot on!
It’s been a battle between liquid and powder highlights for me. I am split between the beautiful, eco-chic, organic baked blush from antonym and the gorgeous Lumiere luminous complexion fluid from Gressa skin. They both apply beautifully.
Still with me?
I cannot get enough of the Aila polish remover. God knows some of those all-natural nail polish removers can be quite a pain in the neck! I got a sample last year and got so hooked that I had to have the full size! It requires a little work, sure, but It comes through beautifully! It’s also quite nourishing!
I hadn’t bought any new lipstick since last year. I was very excited when I got this cocoa butter matte lipstick! from 100 percent pure! The Marrakesh color is fantastic for Spring and Summer! It’s very smooth and last all day! Believe me, I am quite a messy eater!
Let’s just stopped here, if you made it that far of course before I bore you to sleep!
There is more but let’s save it for another time!
So, what have you been loving lately? Please share!
