As many of you know, I've been cleaning up my act lately... Well, beauty-wise, that is. I'm also trying to shop more intentionally and support companies that are really trying to make a difference. I love that!
Let's start with non- beauty favorites. If you ever scroll through the Salon Hue Instagram, you'll know that we LOVE Purpose Jewelry. These delicate, handmade pieces are made by women rescued from human trafficking. Then, the company uses proceeds from jewelry to help rescue and rebuild the lives of even more women.... How amazing is that?!?!?! The Sundust Earrings and the Journey Ring have, honestly, become my daily jewelry staples. I've also been loving a company called Brandless. It's an online marketplace that has low-cost organic, fair trade, and even gluten free items. They over everything from toothpaste to groceries to dishes for your kitchen. We have loved every item that we've gotten from them, I just placed another order yesterday! An easy, eco-friendly swap I made last month was purchasing these reusable cotton rounds. Most of us use cotton balls or pads to remove makeup, or apply facial toner, and then we just toss them away. These cotton rounds from Marley's Monsters are washable, so you're not just creating more garbage. They are holding up really well, and I think its even a good swap cost-wise. Awesome!
I'm feeling so good about my makeup routine these days. I'm almost completely converted to green, non-toxic makeup, and my skin is feeling happy, calm and nourished. I give a lot of that credit to the Herbivore Lapis Oil. This oil hydrates the skin, but is also naturally anti-inflammatory, so it's great if you're acne prone or even get the occasional hormonal breakout. If I do end up needing to cover a pesky blemish, I reach for this Well People Concealor. Holy macaroni, Its awesome! It's perfect for covering blemishes or even hiding tired under eye circles. It's not at all drying, and can be built up easily for more coverage. Also, you can get it at Target. Its so nice that its that accessible to consumers. My last love for the past few months has been the brand 100% Pure. This is a non-toxic, green beauty line based in California that has skincare, makeup and even nail polishes. I'm mainly using this Pretty Naked Palette for my day to day makeup looks. It has a blush, a highlighter and three eyeshadows. And, if we're being honest, I've used all the shades as eyeshadows depending on my mood. The shadows are easy to work with, and it doesn't have any nasty chemicals in it. If you're in the market for a new lip color, the 100% Pure Lipsticks feel so comfortable on the lips an come in a beautiful range of colors. They're perfect for anyone!
