    My Non-Toxic Lipstick Recs

    One of the biggest reasons that I am so passionate about clean beauty and skincare is because of the lack of regulation in the beauty industry. As a consumer, I was under the impression that if it was available to purchase in a store, that the products on the shelves were safe for my use but unfortunately that’s not the case. The last major federal law that regulates the beauty industry was passed in 1938 by President Rosevelt. The same beauty industry has grown to $511 billion dollars! That’s a very large market with many ingredients that have not even been tested for human safety. With the lack of regulation,…

    Cheeky Clean Cream Blush

    I didn’t think that I’d be a fan of Beautycounter’s new Cheeky Clean Cream Blushes… but WOW they’ve exceeded my expectations! The Cheeky Clean Cream Blushes are versatile, multitasking, and mistake-proof. Use it on your cheeks and (bonus!) use it on your lips too! Go with a sheer flush or build to a bold pop of color, thanks to lush pigments and skin-loving ingredients like squalane. What does squalane do? It provides a silky, luxurious texture so color goes on dewy—not greasy—for supple-looking skin, and jojoba esters help moisturize, soothe, and soften. A few answers to some questions that I’m often asked about these cream blushes: IS CHEEKY CLEAN CREAM…
