is my new mascara. It’s called The Best Little Mascara Ever. I use the length + definition formula. I am very picky when it comes to Mascara’s. I’m often not won over by popular, trendy ones. This one is made with over 90% natural ingredients, include Candelilla Wax and Restorative Palm Oil. It’s smudge proof, sweat proof, smear proof, so no Panda Eyes. It is easily removed with water, and seems to come off like a tubing mascara (even though it is not). It has a short, curved want to really get onto each lash. It has a wet consistency, yet bonds to lashes fast. You can subscribe to get it delivered on subscription. So bat your lashes, and get the best little mascara ever!

your nails, with Butter London’s Mellow the Yellow nail brightening treatment. I prefer to do 3 coats with a clear quick dry top coat on top. It gives a pretty pink glow while remaining natural. My favorite thing about the product is that it is not just for a look. It is designed to actually help your nails get brighter, healthier, and stronger. I have tried a few polishes before that give a similar pink glow, but none of them provide ingredients to actually improve your nails. This polish has the lemon fruit extract built in, so while you’re beautifying your nails you’re helping them. The line is “10 free”. Which means no there is no formaldehyde and parabens, as well as many other toxins. It is cruelty- free. So mellow out your nails and your self 😉

with Sea Witch Botanicals all natural Incense. When it comes to adding scent to your home you want to be careful what you’re using. Many candles, and fragrance products, are actually spreading toxic, endocrine disrupting ingredients in the air. Lately I’ve been using Sea Witch Botanicals incense to add scent and lift my mood. Each of their incense’s has a specific aromatherapy goal, from reducing anxiety, to grounding energy. The sticks are all natural, essential oil based, and air purifying.  25 bamboo sticks come in a box, and you can also get a 50 piece eco set in a compostable bag. They use activated charcoal which purifies the air as you burn it. So light up with Sea Witch, and drift away…

natural deodorant favorites! I love both of these brands; Kinko & Corpus. First I’ll discuss Kinko. It is powered by their Microbiomix. Which is a patent pending blend of prebiotics and postbiotics that are designed to balance your microbiome to prevent body odor. It is aluminum free, baking soda free, all natural, and free of preservatives. It soothes and conditions the underarm area, and is oil free so it won’t stain your clothes. Corpus uses advances in plant based chemistry to create effective products that are vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, aluminum free, talc free, and baking soda free. They have a variety of scents to choose from. So sweat less and smell better, the natural way.

to your options. Feeling sluggish, unsexy, not in the mood, there’s help. Thanks to House of Wise’s Sex Gummies. These are the best gummies I have ever tasted, and they’re gluten free! Each gummy contains 200mg of Horny Goat Weed Extract (increases blood flow to the right areas/promotes energy and stamina), 100mg Maca Root Extract (reported to promote sexual desire & energy), 10mg Ashwagandha Extract (increases calmness), and 15mg Full Spectrum hemp derived CBD. House of Wise takes CBD very seriously.  “Every ingredient used in our oils is derived from select hemp plant cultivated in the USA. They are all completely natural, organic, gluten-free and ethically sourced, with no additives or preservatives. Our products are lab tested to ensure purity and potency.” I love that proceeds from every purchase support the Last Prisoner Project. So get with House of Wise, because a wise woman takes control of her pleasure….

Skintensive is a skincare line created by two Harvard trained dermatologists. It uses natural, ethically produced ingredients for results you can see. The formulas are designed form maturing skin, but of course work on all types. They believe “nature is our inspiration and science is our guide”.  I have been using the Bruise & Scar Cream. It is designed to help with bruises and scars especially post procedure. The power ingredients are Arnica Montana (anti-inflammatory), Vitamin K (bruise healling/collagen forming), Coconut Oil(anti inflammatory/hydrating/soothing)and Vitamin E.  I have been testing it on a scar and it has definitely sped up the healing time. So get intense on your scars with Skintensive, because no one needs to know you had a procedure or are just a clutz ;)…

are easy to attain, thanks to Kelley Baker. Kelley is a renowned makeup artist turned brow expert. She has many celebrity clients, including the Kardashians. “A Kelley Baker brow has a very distinctive, natural look. Kelley is a minimalist and a stickler for straight lines. She believes the key to a sleek, natural brow is not overdoing it with the product. Her signature collection of brow products was created to subtly enhance the brows in a soft manner without them looking drawn on.” I love every product I’ve tried of hers. My favorite is the Camo-Light Highlighter Pencil. It is a soft, creamy , gel like pencil. It camouflages and flaws and adds lift to the brow bone. It brightens the eye area with a subtle light affect, not a glitter or shimmer. I recommend getting the Highlighter Smudge Brush to perfectly blend the product. The Brow Defining Pencil is as good, if not better than any one of tried. It is a long wear formula, that glides on easy with and ultra fine tip. The spooly perfectly blends out the pencil for a precise, natural look. Lastly, the Tinted Brow Gel keeps your perfectly done look in place. It volumizes and tames, and is sweatproof for all day long wear. So even if your life is a mess, get with Kelley Baker to get your brows in order!….

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…

because they look amazing and are soft and shiny. My new favorite lip products is Locked & Lit from Smith & Cult. It’s a CBD lip balm gives the most perfect, natural, shine and look. It uses hemp derived CBD to soothe and protect. Coconut derived MCT oil provides intense hydration. I have the clear, which is green in the jar, and it gives the most perfect natural lip color boost. I love how long it lasts, as apposed to many balms that seem to dissipate in minutes. So pucker up for Smith & Cult and make your lips luscious…

have stepped up these days. I have a new favorite oral care company. Lumineux is all about creating a healthy microbiome in your mouth. They feel if “your mouth is healthy, diverse and thriving, the rest of your body will thrive too.” They’re nontoxic whitening strips work immediately. They are enamel safe, and made from natural ingredients. They use mineral rich super salt for the benefits of calcium, potassium, and magnesium. I saw results the first day I used them. I also love their Whitening Toothpaste. It too is non toxic and enamel safe. It uses Dead Sea Salt, Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, and Essential Oils to care for your mouth better than leading brands. So clean up that mouth with Lumineux, because it is dirty…..
