Kypris Cleanser Concentrate

Kypris Cleanser Concentrate

Whenever your favorite brand comes out with a new product, it always feels like Christmas Day! As you all know by now, I am a huge fan of the Kypris skin care line, not only because of it’s squeaky clean perfection, but more so because of the genuine effort that goes into each of the items, that really is rare so I appreciate it! There are no quick shortcuts or thoughtless launches, everything Kypris does is well thought out and given 100%. This really is one of the most luxurious, good-for-you-and-your-skin lines on the green beauty market so this post is for those that really want the very best for their skin and overall health.

When I first heard that they were releasing a new Cleanser Concentrate, I was so excited. After suffering from dermatitis and not knowing the culprit, finding a really gentle cleanser was important to me. At first, I was bummed that this cleanser did not remove makeup because I prefer my cleansers to do it all, however, I learned that most cleansers that remove makeup are too harsh to be using on your full face each day and really, we should only be using a cleansing oil to remove makeup, following up with a gentle cleanser like this one from Kypris. So yes, it is a bit more work but for those wanting their skin in tip-top shape, like I do, it’s worth the work.  Continue Reading

My all-time favorite lipstick used to be MAC’s Faux, so for anyone who loved that color also, but wanted a safer swap, here are some similar colors! I find that if I add Gabriel Cosmetic’s Taupe color with the Lauren Brooke Peluche, it’s pretty much identical but I’m still looking for one lipstick that is the perfect match. Have one to suggest? Comment below! In the meantime, here are some colors that are similar for anyone else who loves a taupe mauve color like I do! Continue Reading

Arya Essentials Luxury Oils

IMG_9904

Every now and then I tend to splurge, however, whatever it is, always has to be worth it. I recently came across a brand called Arya Essentials, and while yes, it is a bit on the pricier side, when you learn more about the line you realize that the luxurious ingredients certainly justify the cost! So, for anyone who wants the best of the best when it comes to their oils, Arya Essentials is it! Of course, there are more affordable options, but today I will share more about this line for those interested!

Arya Essentials Philosophy-

  • Always use Organic, Wild-Crafted, and Biodynamic ingredients from sustainable sources.
  • Their products never contain GMOs, sulfates, mineral oils, synthetic dyes or scents, gluten or fillers.
  • All products and ingredients are Cruelty-Free, always.
  • Arya Essential always strives to bring you products of the purest and highest quality to heal and revitalize your skin as you embark on your personal journey to a more naturally beautiful you.

Now that you know how amazing their brand is, let’s talk about the two items I tried from the line! Arya Essentials was kind enough to send me these two items, however, I was not obligated to share them with you unless I enjoyed them. I am happy to report that I did! Continue Reading

Even Gisele Skips Toxic Sunscreens

gisele-bundchen-sunscreen

I love that more and more influential women like Gisele are speaking out about how toxic conventional sunscreens are. Back in 2011 Gisele publicly spoke out saying “I cannot put this poison on my skin, I do not use anything synthetic.” Her tips for safer sun protection? She avoids the sun during peak times and instead opts for heading outside earlier or later in the days.

So, what’s the deal with sunscreens? Well, most contain Oxybenzone, a hormone-disrupting chemical that can penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream where it’s shown to attack DNA cells. Many even contribute this chemical to the rise of Melanoma, yes that’s right SUNSCREEN may cause cancers more than the actual sun! Oxybenzone also comes with links to breast cancer, eczema, allergic reactions and more. For the full article on chemical based sunscreen risks, click here.

If you have to go out in the sun, here are some tips!

  1. Avoid peak hours, head outside earlier or later in your day.
  2. Wear a large hat, and loose clothing to protect your skin when outside.
  3. If you still need a sunscreen, choose a safer brand like Raw Elements USA that is Organic, Non-Nano mineral based and super clean, they even have tinted ones to avoid white streaks! Code organicbunny saves $$ too!
  4. Re-apply your sunscreen after getting wet, sweating, or just after 2 hours or so of being outside. 1 application of sunscreen never equals all day protection.

These are such important tips, please share these with your friends before Summer hits!

How To Naturally Treat Dermatitis

How To Naturally Treat Dermatitis

As many of you know by now, for the past 4-5 months I have been dealing with dermatitis, both under my right eye as well as along the bottom of my right jawline. I really have never had skin issues before in my life, so figuring out what the heck was going on was at the top of my to-do list. At first, I really thought I just had hormonal acne, as many others probably do, but after some online research and speaking with dermatitis specialists, I quickly realized I had regular dermatitis under my eye and perioral dermatitis on my chin. Gross. All I wanted was for it to go away, but the more I learned, the more I realized this would be a long journey and the only way to really beat this was to stick to a new routine and to not give up!

Because my skin is finally clearing up, I wanted to quickly share with you what I have been using. I do not have too much time today to get into what dermatitis is, but here is a good article on it if you want to see if you might have the same thing I did. Sarah, the CEO of Osmia Organics has become an expert in this area, and considering she is a Doctor as well, this is a great video and article done by her on Perioral Dermatitis. Continue Reading

Nu Evolution Cosmetics

Nu Evolution Cosmetics

Dashing out the door to pick Kyle up from the airport but wanted to post this look really quick! I just tried out a bunch of new items from Nu Evolution Cosmetics and I am really, really pleasantly surprised with the results! For anyone not familiar with Nu Evolution yet, they are a new makeup line that uses certified Organic, Non-Nano, clean ingredients, and never uses the bad guys like Parabens, Bismuth Oxychloride, BHT, Artificial Fragrances, Phenoxyethanol and more!

I rarely mix my makeup routine up, because I am very picky with the makeup I use, but today, I am glad I did because I just might have a new favorite liquid foundation! I really did enjoy the Nu Evolution foundation as it doesn’t sit super dewy like most of the natural ones I have do. It’s really nice to finally have a medium matte foundation back, comparable to my old Estee Lauder Double Wear. While the finish is matte, it’s not too matte if that makes sense? It’s like the perfect, non-dewy, but still flexible finish! I also am obsessed with the lipsticks, they’re SO soft, smooth and pretty on, and their shadows? Kiss MAC goodbye, no seriously, they’re so pigmented and pretty, I am forever a fan!

Anyway, here are the items I used to complete this look, and for anyone wanting to try this new line out, a code is below!
