Ursa Major: Skincare to Share

Ursa Major1

I’d be lying if I said converting my family and friends to organic and natural skincare has been an easy task. Everyone has their misconceptions and protests but in all honesty, it’s always easier for me to convince the ladies in my life of cleaner, greener skincare habits. The men in my life, well let’s just say they’re not really into it. And maybe that’s also due to men not having a very complex skincare routine or rather, no routine at all. My mission was to find unique and clean skincare products catering towards men that my fiance might be willing to try, but it proved harder than I thought. That is, until I was introduced to the ultra-cool, simplistic, natural and organic unisex skincare brand, Ursa Major.

Peachy Pretty: Lily Lolo Pressed Blush and Lip Gloss

LilyLolo_lipglossblush2

If you’re a lover of neutral or nude colors, peach-colored makeup is a great way to transition to bright, bolder colors. A variety of peach colors can range from neutral to more pigmented. I also love that in general, peach shades look good on all skintones. Known for their high performance mineral makeup, Lily Lolo has recently released two beautiful peach shades: Life’s a Peach Pressed Blush* and High Flyer Natural Lip Gloss*.

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.

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:
