with Larkly’s SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen. Summer is here and you better be protecting your skin. I love the ease of doing touch-ups with this sustainable, mineral based, powder sunscreen. You can keep one in your purse, one in the car, and one in your beach bag. The powder is translucent, yet gives your skin a subtlety filtered look. I use it on my face and body, especially my hands while I’m driving. Larkly offers easy to replace refills, so there is less waste on your reorder. Another bonus of this product is it’s TSA friendly! The ultra soft brush is “self-dispensing”. The sunscreen blocks both UVA & UVB rays, and also includes antioxidants like Resveratrol, Green Tea, Vitamin E, and Licorice Root Extracts. So show some skin this summer, as long as you’re protecting it with Larkly ;)….

can be yours with Lernberger Stafsing skin and haircare. The Line is created by celebrity Hair and Makeup pro’s- Patrick Lernberger and Mattias Stafsing. The company was founded upon the belief that “you are considerably more fantastic, remarkable and exciting than you generally show.” The products are simple and sustainable. I have been using their Night Cream It moisturizes and boosts collagen for smoother revitalized skin. It uses Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Evening primrose to soften and perfect.  Keep things simple yet effective with Lernberger Stafsing. 

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…

and you should too. Attitude is an eco conscious, sustainable, skincare and homecare company. For every product you buy of their’s they plant a tree. I have been using a few of their body lotions. My favorite is the Intense Nourishing Body Lotion. It is designed to hydrate and protect skin to leave it balanced and strengthened. The star ingredient is Avocado Oil. It is blended with anti inflammatory, calming oatmeal & fatty acids. The moisturizer is lightweight and absorbs fast. It’s free of all the bad things, and loaded with the good. So get soft skin with Attitude, and show it off …….:)

and approved. Not all cbd/hemp products are created equal. Kiskanu is family owned and operated. The family has worked in the cannabis industry for over 20 years. All their products are small batch, sustainable, and hand crafted. They use premium organic whole plant extracts in a base of cold pressed, virgin, organic oils. The line is lab tested and all hemp CBD is sourced within the US. “Rather than isolates or concentrates, we believe in the effectiveness of whole plant medicine to imbue healing qualities into our products that are palpable.” I love the Hemp CBD Face Oil. I use it as a serum, but it can also be used as a makeup remover or body oil. It offers major hydration, and absorbs quickly. Rose Geranium is used to soothe inflammation. The oil is anti-bacterial, antifungal, and loaded with antioxidants. So get with Kiskanu for your face, and while you’re there check out their Hemp CBD Intimacy Oil, because omg….

quick and easy with Parissa Wax Strips. I have been using small ones for face & bikini. All Parissa products are natural, cruelty free, and made with sustainable materials. There are no chemicals or bleaches used. They are great to take on vacation for touch ups anywhere. The simple to use strips come ready to use. You warm them up between your hands, apply to area to be treated, and immediately pull off. The strips come with a vile of Azulene Oil. It removes any sticky feeling left over from the wax as well as reduces redness and soothes the skin. It assists in preventing ingrown hairs. So keep things smooth with Parissa, for when you take it all off…

OGX is a sustainable, PH balanced, and cruelty free brand.  So get with OGX for healthier hair, it’s one way to get some flowers…

when you want results you need advanced skincare. I tried out the RE9 Advanced line from Arbonne and I’m really into it. The line uses the gold standard in healthy aging ingredients, powerful peptides, stabilized Vitamin C, Orange Stem Cells, Brown Algae extract and a proprietary sea buckthorn ceramide complex. Sustainable orange stem cells help improve the appearance of skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles by conditioning the skin. Stabilized vitamin C boosts and maintains moisture by supporting collagen, resulting in an improved appearance of fine lines while restoring a natural, youthful glow. I love the whole line, the Toner and Corrective Eye Cream are my favorite. Reach out to my girl Silvia for your personalized skincare lineup. So get with Arbonne for advanced skincare, and leave everything and everyone that’s useless behind….
