A Pretty Philosophy: Axiology Lipstick

Axiology Lipstick

Nothing gets me like beautiful, clean lipstick with killer pigmentation and sexy packaging. In a nutshell, Axiology Beauty’s lipsticks fulfill all of these characteristics and then some! From humble beginnings sold through Etsy (where you can still purchase them as well as at the brand’s website) Axiology lipstick is, in my opinion the best new organic lipstick brand in green beauty. Plus, use my exclusive discount code for 20% off Axiology lipstick after the jump!

In Tinted Wonder: Badger SPF 20 Damascus Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen

Badger Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen
With warmer weather and sunnier days in our future, it couldn’t be a better time to find a daily face sunscreen. I’ve had trouble finding a good, organic and natural everyday moisturizer with SPF so I’ve resorted to using a separate sunscreen and moisturizer on my face. This year, Badger released their SPF 20 Damascus Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen*, a non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic product that has broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with non-nano, uncoated mineral zinc oxide. The ingredients are 95% certified organic, 100% certified natural, while the formulation and packaging are also cruelty-free, reef safe, biodegradable, and planet-friendly.

It’s been quite busy around here, hence the lag in my writing: planning my wedding, prepping to move, working a full-time day job, doing 2-3 freelance jobs on the side, and just going about regular life. As usual, I’ve got a million products I’m hoarding trying out but in particular, there have been a lot of skincare products I’ve really been enjoying lately. Brace yourself, this might be a bit long… Here’s what I’ve been testing, liking, and using regularly:

Beauty Chat: Heidi Craig, Founder of Philtre

HeidiBeautyChat
I recently discovered Philtre, a new online shop based in San Francisco that specializes in eco-luxe, non-toxic products that are made in the USA. Philtre (pronounced “filter”) caught my eye for its unique organic and natural skincare, beauty, and haircare brands that range from affordable to luxurious. There is also a robust selection for men, kids, and even some products for “lovin”. (Wink, wink.) Philtre even has helpful resources like an ingredient glossary, easy & informative product symbols, and personal advice so that you can shop confidently and consciously.

I had the honor of meeting Philtre’s sweet, hilarious, and fearless founder, Heidi Craig. Raised by hippie parents in California, Heidi was always influenced by her crunchy granola upbringing. She eventually had a career in marketing and publishing, as well as working with the United Nations for several years, leading her to travel all over the world.
Here, Heidi shares about her unique background, her relationship with green beauty, and what sets Philtre apart from other online shops:

Seeking Serenity With Soul Sunday

Soul Sunday 1

Until recently I wasn’t really much of a fragrance-obsessed girl and truthfully, I wasn’t all that into aromatherapy either. I’ve always had a sensitive nose with very particular scent preferences and cleaning up my skincare and beauty routine has only heightened my sensitivity to fragrances. But dipping my toes in the eco-luxe fragrance world has really opened the floodgates to my new scent-loving tendencies. And aromatherapy, that’s a whole other beast I’m easing into now too.

Enter Soul Sunday, a handcrafted brand made in the USA which melds the best of two worlds: beautiful, minimalist design and effective, natural essential oil-based formulas. I’ve been obsessing over this small-batch apothecary goods brand and their standout aromatherapy blends are my current addiction.
