Clean beauty is 100% my jam and Follain is my favorite place to shop for it. They opened a beautiful shop here in Seattle, but it’s also an amazing online resource for non-toxic, effective, and luxurious skincare and makeup. In fact, they have a rigorous approval process before they allow a product to be sold in their shops! So you can trust that whatever Follain offers is amazing.
Recently, Follain launched their own collection of wonderful exclusives in the clean beauty category. I was lucky enough to be given a set of every item to try out, so I wanted to share my favorites with you today. Plus, there’s a giveaway for one lucky reader!
One of my favorite things to do is fall down the rabbit hole of beauty products. For instance, I’ve been reading more and more about the different ingredients in the skincare products I swear by. One favorite of mine, Osmia Vital Nectar Rose Drops, features rosehip oil, so I started researching that. Turns out that there are tons of amazing benefit to this organic ingredient! Not only is it fab for the face skin, but it is also wonderful in hand creams, body lotions, and more. I’ve actually noticed a big difference in the brightness and texture of my skin, so I wanted to share more with you. Let’s dig into more of why you need to add Rosehip Oil to your skincare arsenal!
We spent new years in a cabin in beautiful, snowy Leavenworth which means that my skin is totally wrecked. The cold, dry air really did a number on my skin, especially my hands. As I was reaching for my trusty collection of hand creams last night, I realized that I am probably not the only one in this boat. Today’s post is all about my absolute favorite, holy grail hand creams and what exactly I love about each!
You all know by now that I have a major soft spot in my heart for beauty and skincare. It’s basically the one self-care thing that I can commit to on a consistent basis (although, I’m working on that). I feel like makeup is a really personal item, so I didn’t include much of that in this gift guide. Instead, it’s focused on anything beauty-related and tools to make a solid skincare routine easier and more fun. Today’s gift guide is all about taking the guess work out of finding the ultimate gift for the beauty buff in your life. I rounded up some amazing beauty and skincare gift ideas in a variety of price points and styles to make your shopping easier. Happy shopping!
It took me awhile to figure out how to make my skin soft and happy during the cold, drying winter months. Now that I have a good routine, I feel like I finally have it on lock though! It took a bit of trial and error, but I have a group of winter skincare products that can be classified as nothing other than ‘holy grail.’ Also, side note: does anyone else feel like suchhh a beauty Youtube-r when using that phrase? Something about it makes me feel silly, but also in-the-know at the same time.
Are you a bath taker? I totally am. To me, there is nothing better than stepping into a hot, relaxing bath… I literally do this at least twice a week! I haven’t been able to indulge in many baths since the kitchen renovation started because it also took over the bathroom. Over the weekend, I lost my patience and did a crazy deep clean on the tub so I could finally get back to my favorite indulgence! You better believe that I took the most epic bath of all time that night… But while I was soaking, I thought a bit about how my bath routine was really the best type of self-care. It’s the only time when I leave my phone in another room and when Sean knows not to disturb me. So this week’s Wellness post is all about how I set the scene for the most relaxing bath EVER!
It’s definitely been a while since I last shared a beauty and skincare post with you… I’d like to blame the renovation because it’s taking over my life! It’s not exactly a secret that natural skincare is really important to me, so I wanted to share a few of the products that have been sent my way for a review. In case you’re on the hunt for a new natural body wash, scrub, or lotion, these picks will definitely help you. There are also a few natural beauty products for the face area, as well. You know me… I can never say no to trying out more facial products!
