Being a blogger, I get a ton of green beauty to try out and I love it. So, I’m giving myself a bit of a challenge. I’ll choose one or two (or three) favorite products from each of these categories. They’ll be a Part II soon with other categories coming soon!
HAIR MOUSSE FOR LIFT/TEXTURIZER
I Create Lift Volumizing Foam from Innersense Organic Beauty I’m absolutely stunned by the performance of this product. Not only is it non-toxic, but it works even BETTER than any other conventional mousse that I have used in the past. This mousse gives serious volume without weighing down the hair or making it feel oily like many green products have a tendency to do. Trust me on this. Take 10% off site wide at Citrine with code: GPJ10. Shop here.
Rose Soothing + Protective Moisturizer by MV Skincare I tell you, this is my second bottle of this and I love the stuff. If you love the subtle scent of rose and like a good, solid cream that is neither too heavy or too light, you’ll love this. I feel like this brand doesn’t get much attention, but it’s one of my favorites. This cream is perfect for under makeup and hydrates in the best of ways. Love it. Shop here.
Skin Dew Coconut Water Cream by One Love Organics So, I used this cream up so fast, it was pretty unreal. Light and so refreshing, this is an excellent moisturizer if you like your cream to feel like you’re applying water to your face in a cream form (crazy, I know). This is great for the Summer as it’s so light and gentle. The scent is subtle and smells so fresh. Honestly, each time you apply it, it gives you a cooling sensation. I’m going to get more. Shop for it here.
The Eye Achiever by Maya Chia Okay, so this is truly one product that really does work on dark circles if applied before bed. Now, I’m not sure how it works, but I know that it does. I also know that I wake up with impossibly soft skin under my eyes. If you’re wearing it during the day, I recommend using as little as possible by rolling the rollerball on a clean ring finger (this finger has the lightest touch) and lightly pressing some of the serum under the eyes. If you’re a Beauty Heroes subscriber, you get 15% off! Shop for it here.
Rose of Castille Eye Contour Cream from Radice Apothecary The Detox Market just started carrying this line (review to come) and one of my favorites from the line is their eye cream. So light and refreshing, it’s one of those products that you want to re-apply over and over just because it feels so good on the skin. The scent is so subtle and pretty (slightest hint of rose) and it just makes concealer look flawless. If you’re a cream fan, go for this because not only does it smell and feel great, but the organic ingredients are stellar, too! Shop here.
Captain Blankenship Mermaid Detox Face Mask I’m not sure what it is in here that’s magic for brightening, clearing out and leaving my skin so soft, but it works. I have to say that this might be my favorite mask all-time. Whenever I’m super ruddy or it just looks like my skin needs a do-over, I grab for this baby. Hope it works for you, too! Shop here.
Max + Me Sweet Serenity Mask I’m not the only blogger who is obsessed with this mask! Okay, how to explain what it does. First off, it calms the skin down, leaves it so soft and hydrated and it just balances everything out. It is an incredible treat. Full review here.
The Petal by Mahalo Skincare This is just so wonderful for calming the skin, plumping, cooling it down and leaving it so hydrated and ready for makeup. This mask is great before a date or a big event and it’s such a treat! If you want more info, go here.
FACE OILS (this is a toughie)
Aknari Brightening Youth Serum from Mun If you love the scent of roses (which I do) you’ll love Aknari. It’s actually been one of my favorites since it first came out. Light and gentle, it hydrates the skin wonderfully and is also great because it can be used under the eyes, as well so if you’re not the type that like 100 products around, it’s a great multi-purpose one. Use code: TGPJ for 15% off site wide here.
The Beautiful Oil by Kjaer Weis This oil is just so velvety that it glides so nicely on the skin. It’s light and easier to spread if you use a toner first. I also love, love, love the herbal scent of this rich oil. You only need very little, too. Leaves skin soft, hydrated and feeling nourished. My readers get 10% off with code: GPJ10. Get it here.
Odacité Literally any face oil from this brand is going to be a winner for you. I also love their boosters that you can add to your face oils or creams for an extra punch of whatever it’s offering! Check them out here.
The Unveil from Mahalo This takes EVERYTHING off so easily and requires zero rubbing, scrubbing or any use of a cloth. It’s incredibly pleasant to use, too, as it’s creamy and smells wonderful. Read more here.
Black Mint Cleanser If you have oily skin, I highly recommend you look into this brand new cleanser from Odacité. My full review is here.
