As if the beautifully designed, natural lipstick brand, Axiology could not get any cooler, they’ve launched a new collection consisting of natural Lip Crayonsin a stunning variety of colors. Effortlessly chic on the lips and equally stunning to look at, the Axiology Lip Crayons are fun and unique products that have arrived just in time for effortless, spring/summer beauty looks.
One thing I enjoy about following small beauty and skincare brands that I trust and enjoy, is seeing how products and brands develop over time. It’s always exciting to see beloved products get better formulations or more unique packaging, or even brands developing upon their mission and offerings. Such is the case with the evolution of Apoterra Skincare, a brand I’ve been a loyal fan of for their thoughtful product formulations, beautiful packaging, and transparent communications.
When I think of brands I use and trust, there are a variety of aspects that I like to consider, however a factor that’s always intriguing to me is a brand’s history. Weleda is a brand that has upheld their legacy in the beauty industry with not much changing, whether it be their commitment to natural, holistic skincare, or cultivating and sourcing quality ingredients from the brand’s own Biodynamic® gardens (one of the first in the world). Yet with such a legacy (almost 96 years of history), some things do change for the better. Recently, Weleda relaunched and refreshed the branding of their Facial Care line.
Wow, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve chatted about new releases out in the green beauty world! Of course there have been lots of amazing products on my radar in the past few months, but here are a few that are at the top of my list:
Imagine an island paradise, anywhere in the world: sunshine on your face, sand beneath your toes, shimmering waves splashing against your body….and all of this bottled up within arms reach. In skincare? For me, Leahlani Skincareconjures up all the ecstasy of paradise for your skin. Am I a little obsessed? Yes, and for good reason. Read on to hear about my experience with this popular island-inspired skincare brand.
‘Tis the season…and I’m still rounding up some last-minute gifts because I’m a total procrastinator. In any case, I always enjoy any opportunity to sneak in some green beauty gifts for my family and friends! I selected a few of Credo Beauty’s show-stopping green beauty products (available in-store or online,) that will surely impress even the biggest humbug out there:
For the last few years, I’ve compiled tons of green beauty deals for Black Friday. As I’ve committed myself to making more ethical, sustainable, and minimalist purchases, my perspective on Black Friday is a bit different. My hope is that talking about it will encourage others to feel the same.
Trusting in the power of nature is an age-old practice, but still so relevant and necessary in today’s world. While many people find respite in the great outdoors, there are plenty of smaller steps to incorporate nature’s holistic healing into your life, wherever you may be and at whatever time. Lotus Wei is one brand that has been at the forefront of utilizing the amazing and impressive power of nature, specifically in flowers, to create transformative, conscious change in one’s body, mind, and spirit through natural remedies.
If you haven’t been following me on Instagram, I’ve just spent time abroad in Japan for a 2-week vacation (more on my trip soon). What peeves me the most when packing for a long trip is figuring out exactly what skincare and makeup essentials to bring, especially with a limitation on product sizes. Thankfully, Credo Beauty launched their Clean Beauty Kit just in time for me to bring it on vacation and test it out. Talk about a perfect travel skincare solution!
It may sound a bit judgmental, but when it comes to product design and packaging, looks really do matter. From my experience working with various skincare and beauty brands, sometimes the biggest struggle in selling products and spreading the word about a company lies solely with the packaging.
