Summer Clean Beauty must haves.

Summer: when days get longer and hotter.

If you want to enjoy to the fullest the upcoming summer days, protection and staying hydrated are a must!

With this being said, I would like to recommend you the perfect clean beauty trio that will help your skin stay healthy, protected, and hydrated.

 

1. Sheer Zinc Sunscreen

by Babo Botanicals

  • vegan, organic, nontoxic
  • won’t leave any residue
  • calms redness
  • no irritation
  • fragrance-free

You can rest assured that no harmful chemicals are going in/on your skin with this one. This SPF 30 sunscreen will protect the whole family (yes, it’s good for babies, kids, and grown ups too). Also, it’s water and sweat resistant.

I personally have sensitive skin, so this spray is a must for me if I want to avoid any type of irritation or sunburn.

2. Tinted Facial Moisturizer

by Raw Elements

  • natural, organic
  • eco-friendly
  • SPF 30

Mom deserves the best. The perfect gift for every mom. Mother’s Day.

You cannot go wrong when choosing to gift skincare!

And this is not any type of skincare, but products that are clean, nontoxic, and are meant to nurture and take care of your skin.

My favorite clean beauty retailer is Follain. Why? Because they are the best of clean beauty, thoughtfully curated! Because you can rest assured that everything you buy from them is CLEAN, HIGH-PERFORMING & HAND-PICKED.

They have the largest list of restricted ingredients because they don’t like to compromise health for beauty. And this is something I also truly stand firm for (that’s why I became a Follain ambassador).

All the products that I recommend below are products that I personally tried and currently use in my daily skincare routine.

 

1. Indie Lee Duo

COQ-10 Toner & Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil

 

I have been raving about these products for quite a bit now because they really work. You actually get what they promise they’ll do. And there is nothing more satisfying than knowing you invested your money in something that truly works.

Perfect Christmas gift for a clean beauty lover.

If you know a skincare enthusiast that cares for using clean, healthy, nontoxic beauty products, then this is the perfect gift you can give.

Everything about this set convinced me to write a review about it and to recommend it to you. Thanks to Malie Organics, my clean beauty Christmas gift arrived earlier this year, so I was able to test all the products for a while now and write this review.

 

 

Let me tell you more about this BotanyBeauty box. First things firsts:

1. The packaging:

High-end, elegant and very well thought. Why do I say this?

They paid so much attention to details: from the beautiful gold logo, to the details inside the box, the greeting “Aloha”–that shows their origins–to the clear lists of ingredients. They even added – to each product box – a small tag that has 5 informative categories:

  • what it is
  • what it does
  • how to use
  • who is it for
  • ingredients

Also, the Botany Beauty box comes with a guide that shows a description of some of their other products, listing all the ingredients and honest reviews from real people.

2. The ingredients in each product:

Malie Organics is powered by plant science, organic and fragrance-free. They blend botanicals with essential oils from flowers and herbs. All their formulas are clean formulas.

 

3. What’s inside the box?

You will get 4 amazing products:

Illuminating Serum (this one is my number 1 favorite)

I apply it at nigh, after I remove my makeup, to a fresh clean face. Then I use my rose quartz roller and massage my face for 5 minutes (if you haven’t try it already, you are really missing out!)

Luxe Eye Cream

It takes just 1 minute to apply this age-defying cream around my eyes in the morning.

I wake up with a glowing looking skin because of the oil that I applied at night, and this cream makes sure my under eye area is well hydrated. The serum and the eye cream are also a perfect makeup base. I sometimes go out wearing just these 2 because my face doesn’t need anything else. It glows and looks healthy.

I have been using this  eye cream for a month now and I already see how it helped with the thin lines that I was having under my eyes. That is due to the plant based Alpha Hydroxy Acids that this formula contains. Also, the Hyaluronic Acids, the Plant Peptides, and the Witch Hazel will help with calming any irritations, reduce puffiness, and enhancing a firmer looking appearance.

 

Hydrosol Facial Tonic

This one is perfect to have and keep in your purse! You can use it to refresh your skin throughout the day, you can use it on your hair (controls frizz and gives a nice texture to curls).

I like to use it to refresh my face before applying my makeup. I have to be honest with you: I am using it a lot because it’s an aromatherapeutic blend that helps calming my face from redness. It’s 100% pure Jasmine and Rose Hydrosols.

 

Cleansing Polish

The texture of this one is awesome! I like to let it stay on my face for 3-5 minutes then rinse it with cold water. After using it for quite a while I’ve been noticing that my skin feels very soft and much brighter. This polish helps decongest and exfoliate dull, dead skin cells without harming or irritating the skin.

I was so excited when Malie Organics contacted me and told me that they are sending my way this gorgeous set from their line Botany Beauty. All they asked in return was for me to post a picture on my Instagram account. But as soon as I tried these products, I fell in love with them. That’s why I decided to share my honest opinion about this set.
