My skincare essentials transitioning into summer are all about nourishing and protecting my skin from the sun while preparing for longer hours outside. Here are some of my recent healthy sunscreen suggestions that I’ve been continuing to use this summer and also toted around Italy on my honeymoon:
Minus my massive allergy attacks and the erratic temperature changes, spring is one of my favorite seasons. It’s that time of year when everything is in its prime for a transition. The most obvious thing we do is switch out our clothing to meet the needs of the seasons, but what if the same practice applied to our skincare?
Saison Beauty is a San Francisco-based brand founded on the principle of seasonal skincare. Every season influences a change in our skin therefore, different ingredients and formulations should also adapt with it for the most effective treatment. Each seasonal collection from Saison is concentrated with the highest-quality, organic plant extractsfrom that season.
Pardon this late post, it’s been quite a busy month! My April box from Goodbeing came at a convenient time, right before my Bachelorette party weekend! I always love receiving trial-size products before a big trip since I’ll be able to try out new things and easily bring less with me. Overall, I was very impressed with this month’s box and how appropriate they were to take with me on my weekend trip to Myrtle Beach!
Let’s be honest, I don’t wear a full-coverage foundation every day nor do I necessarily need to. But there are definitely times when I yearn for those heavy-duty, long-lasting conventional foundation formulas that I could easily just slap on and forget about. Can you relate? Thankfully, I’ve been testing products from Sappho Organics and have found what I think is the highest caliber of organic liquid foundations. I feel no need to fall down the conventional makeup hole anytime soon.
This month’s Goodbeing box was probably the best box I’ve received so far! I’ve been receiving these boxes thanks to Goodbeing so that I can experience their services and share my honest response. Goodbeing is the “OG” personalized, monthly subscription box for natural beauty and wellness goods. Previously known as Goodebox, Goodbeing has very affordable pricing plans and partners with many trusted, top-notch brands to provide what I believe is the best subscription box out there for green beauty and wellness. For more info about Goodbeing and to see what I received in January and February, check out my post HERE.
Last year, Sarita invited me to a lovely event at the West Village organic spa, Savor Spa. I failed to blog about the event, but posted some pictures on my Instagram where I met other bloggers, experienced an amazing all-natural facial, and played around with the spa’s skincare products, Om Aroma & Co. I also met Savior Spa’s founder, Angela Jia Kim, an inspiring woman and entrepreneur.
Take a look around the web and you’ll probably find any type of subscription box imaginable. Formerly Goodebox, Goodbeing is a personalized subscription box featuring 4-5 trial-sized natural beauty and wellness products shipped to your door every month. Goodebox was one of the first green beauty and skincare subscription boxes that I’d heard of since I started blogging and now as Goodbeing, the brand still continues to be a subscription box that you can trust for safe and healthy, expertly curated products.
I’ve been receiving Goodbeing boxes* to try out their new services and I wanted to share with you my experience so far as well as what was in the January and February boxes I received.
