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.

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.
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.
In the midst of my current, busy life transition (moving with my husband to a new state, job searching, continuing with difficult grad school classes), I’ve been searching for a longterm method that would amplify and maintain healthy skin while minimizing my (already extreme) personal skincare product usage. Enter, FOREO’s LUNA 2 facial cleansing brush.
With a reputation for luxuriously simplistic skincare and body products, Indie Lee is a name you can trust for high-quality, natural ingredients and efficacy. The brand’s minimalist, conscious approach to skincare, health, and life is refreshing in an all too busy, cluttered world.
