Osea Ocean Cleanser – “This creamy gel cleanser is infused with the mineral-rich abundance of the ocean—red algae and chlorophyll swim with lime, cypress, juniper, and jasmine essential oils to balance skin, while beet-derived lactic acid sloughs off dull cells without stripping. With a light lather and refreshing aquatic aroma, regular use reveals a fresh, glowing complexion. Especially suited for normal and combination skin types.“
I love to use this cleanser when my skin feels like it just needs a really really good deep cleaning. It removes makeup like a charm and it leaves my skin soft and toned. Great cleanser to always have around!!!
Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm – “An ultra-hydrating hyaluronic lip balm delivering advanced lip care powered by active botanicals that transports you to a sport state of mind. Creates a gel-like barrier between lips and the environment, sealing in active nourishment, attracts water and locks in hydration while vitamin e smooths, repairs, and plumps.”
Can Kosas do wrong? Not by me. They recently released their new LipFuel Balms and I love all three. The clear one is perfect to use before bed, before makeup, and the tinted ones are just beautiful. Such a gorgeous sheer color and they make your lips feel sooooo soft!!!! Great for carrying in your purse.
HUM Nutrition Glow Sweet Glow – “You may recognize hyaluronic acid from topical skin care products. We chose to include low molecular hyaluronic acid in our gummy because of its absorbability and 50% of the body’s hyaluronic acid is found in the skin. When ingested it helps keep moisture locked into the skin keeping it plump, hydrated and glowing. As we age, we naturally lose vitamin C in both the epidermis and dermis, which can also lead to a loss of collagen. Therefore, we included Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, to increase collagen production. Like Vitamin C, Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that hydrates and supports the health of the skin. We included mixed tocopherols to give the body access to the most absorbable form of Vitamin E.”
I haven’t actually tried this product yet but I’m choosing it because I want to try it and I think it sounds amazing. If I can chew some of my vitamins – count me in!
Moon Juice Holy Yoni – “Show some love to your intimate areas with this silky, adaptogenic blend of antioxidant-rich schisandra berry, soothing Bulgarian rose, and hydrating sweet almond oil. The lightweight formula promotes elasticity and keeps skin soft and supple—never greasy.”
You might be thinking… “Do I really need an oil for my lady parts?” – Yes, yes you do. I bought this after debating it for quite awhile and now I can’t imagine being without it. I plan to do a dedicated post on it soon.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil – “Tinted Face Oil is a feather-weight medium coverage foundation and deeply hydrating skin elixir. Three types of pigment are delivered in a base of six active botanical oils to instantly even skin tone, minimize pores, and erase imperfections. Designed to be as easily applied as a daily serum or moisturizer, the breathable silky formula’s oils are quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving behind a perfecting layer of self-adjusting color with a velvety finish – no blending required.”
Oh, how I love thee!!! I recommend using a sunscreen underneath this as it does not contain SPF, however it does contain specific oils that help protect the skin in the sun! I ran out of my favorite sunscreen, so I’ve been using any I can but you could use any that you choose. This foundation works well with oils so keep that in mind! I use the shade 02.
Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliners – “Featuring a fine calligraphy tip, our quick-drying Liquid Eyeliner has a water resistant, gluten-free formula that delivers ultimate precision to line, shape and define your eyes.”
I can’t stop wearing the colors Azure and Storm lately. They just brighten up any look instantly. A pop of blue might seem intimidating, but give it a try!!! Also – Raven is the best black liquid liner out there. I’m obsessed with these liners.
RMS Beauty Lip Shine – “Purity made simple. A touch of shine on your lips is now both sensuous and nourishing. This colorful, fountain of youth for lips contains moringa oil, which is rich in nutrients. Due to its natural fatty acids, vitamin A and C properties, these lip shines provide extracellular antioxidant protection. Combined with nourishing organic oils and pure mineral pigments, this exotic formula is highly emollient and visibly hydrating. These are sure to become your newest healthy addiction.”
I love all of the Lip Shine’s I’ve tried from RMS, however, Sublime is my go-to in the warmer months!!! It is one of my absolute favorite colors and products. It’s a must have. I am all out of it and need a new one. Trust me, you need it to.
Have you tried any of these products? If you get any of my picks or something else, please do let me know!!!!!
It’s so interesting to think back to a time when I would never have even thought about wearing any type of crop top in fear of showing off my stomach. Now, I actually search for them and I love wearing them because sometimes wearing things and embracing things that we were always afraid of (for whatever the reason) helps us to not only overcome those fears, but it can help us to feel and ultimately become more confident.
For me, I feel extremely comfortable and confident wearing tops like these and I think every woman should – regardless of your size or shape! If you want to wear something, WEAR IT. Do not wait for weight loss, weight gain or toning up for a special occasion or date and time – just wear what you want and enjoy it.
If you are new to crop tops and still feeling unsure about wearing them, try them with high-waisted jeans. This will help you to not feel like you are showing off “too much” while still being able to show some of that beautiful tummy of yours!
The weather is getting warmer but it’s definitely still time for some jackets. I have found some ways of incorporating crop tops into my outfit on those cooler without sticking out like a sore thumb or being too cold! Try adding a long jacket, sweater or duster. Add a beanie or fedora hat. All of these little additions will help keep you warm even while showing off some tummy!
Hi everyone, I wanted to give you guys a status update on what’s been happening since I switched over to the new Burt’s Bees Toothpaste – specifically the Purely White formula – back in November.
I was really excited when I learned Burt’s Bees was getting into the oral care category. I wanted a toothpaste with ingredients I recognized and could trust, but also tasted great and gave me good results. I’ve finally found that and now I’m a fan!
The Purely White formula I use is fluoride-free (I love that!), but I also like that all of the formulas are made without things like SLS, parabens, triclosan, artificial flavors & sweeteners, and microbeads. And like all Burt’s Bees products, they were not tested on animals. I personally find it so much better than other toothpastes I’ve tried, some of which are full of chemicals and made with things I can’t even pronounce … I do NOT want that in my mouth. For me, when there are products made with simple and effective ingredients, why not go with those?
Since I started using Burt’s Bees Purely White Toothpaste, my teeth are noticeably whiter and I’ve had quite a few compliments lately on my smile! The Zen Peppermint flavor makes my breath fresh and my teeth feel so clean after I brush. Everyone in the family can find their own favorite because there are two other adult formulas, two for kids and people can choose from Fluoride and Fluoride-Free options. I even have my 2 1/2 year old niece using the Fluoride-Free Fruit Fusion Flavor….she loves it!
The price point for the toothpastes is very reasonable and they’re available now at Target and Target.com. One more fun fact … there’s an additional adult formula that’s exclusive to Target called Extra White. It’s like Purely White (my fave), but with Fluoride. Click the link below to purchase for you and your family (there’s 10% off through March at Target too!) and let me know what you think!
When I was approached by Au Natural Skinfood from New Zealand, I was honest with them that I had never heard of their beautiful skincare line before! How had I not known about a sustainable eco-friendly brand that uses Certified Manuka (16+) honey in many of their products? For years, Manuka honey has been a beauty secret of mine. My family is never surprised to see me relaxing and enjoying a full face of Manuka honey slathered all over my face.
I love the fact that Au Natural Skinfood feeds, strengthens and protects the skin by using natural highly concentrated active ingredients and the healing and protective power of Manuka honey and New Zealand botanicals. This line is suitable for all skin types and works synergistically to repair and nourish each layer of the skin.
I also had a quick education in just how much of a problem single-use bottles are for our planet. The company mantra is ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.’ And by ordering and using their amazing products you become part of the solution and are helping to reduce the 480 billion single-use bottles wasted every year. I really was stunned at this statistic! There has been a number of progressive companies that have taken a stand and creatively developed skin care solutions that are part of the solution. Au Natural Skinfood has done this! They have created 100 % chemical free, cruelty-free, vegetarian society approved and pregnancy safe skin and beauty products.
When you decide to order from Au Natural Skinfood, you will receive refillable aluminum bottles that come wrapped in your own reusable carry bag. Everything is delivered to your home in a compostable courier bag.

One of my favorite products from the line is the One The Go Mineral Powder Foundation in Medium. I’m fair skinned but this color blends perfectly over my makeup. It’s so easy to apply by brushing lightly over my makeup before heading out for the day. This product reduces redness and is an instant mineral power sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 25. I keep it in my purse for convenience and touch up throughout the day. It gives my skin such a natural oil-free look.
I think you’ll be really impressed as I am and motivated to rethink how you purchase, use and recycle skin care products. Another fact I learned from Au Natural Skinfood’s website was that it’s estimated that in an average person’s lifetime a person can use over 1,400 beauty and skincare plastic containers. I hope by working with Au Natural Skinfood that I can help educate people to really consider the environment and be a part of the change in reducing waste and helping to be a part of the solution for a more sustainable planet.
What do you guys think about this revolutionary brand? I love being part of the solution, rather than adding to our landfill issues. And when the skincare is this good, then it’s a win/win situation.
