Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and while I believe it’s a silly commercialized holiday, I always think celebrating the ones you love or yourself is totally justified. If you’re single, treat yourself! Because you’re pretty damn awesome and deserve it.
Mahalo Skin Care is launching their much-anticipated, The Petal facial mask on February 14 (Valentine’s Day) and to celebrate, Mahalo has released You Are Loved, a limited edition gift set just in time for the big day of love! This thoughtfully-curated skincare gift was inspired by sharing and receiving special moments of self-care with the ones you love. Read on to find out more about this limited-time offer and why you should pick it up before they’re sold out!
It hasn’t really started to feel like winter until recently. The temperatures are dropping and my skin is feeling it! I’ve been determined to continue focusing on skincare and maintaining a healthy routine. Here are some skincare products I’ve been using to successfully combat the effects of cold weather:
This was the year that natural deodorant ruled the green beauty community and beyond! So many brands have released new and innovative products to keep your pits healthy and fresh that there are now tons of options that make it easy and chic to kick those nasty, traditional deos to the curb. Ursa Major introduced their Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant, an all-natural stick deodorant with 24-hour protection claims. The brand also released the Citrus Riot Body Wash and Perfect Zen Body Lotion, truly elevating their variety of luxe unisex products for head-to-toe natural goodness.
Last year on Black Friday, Pai Skincare, my favorite natural skincare brand from the UK had one of the best deals I’d ever seen. No better time to review it like now, right? Pai usually has great holiday deals but they never reveal any info until Black Friday or after. So maybe this review will help you decide to jump on the deals this year and get excited for what’s to come. (Stay tuned for that!) Although, I personally never need much persuasion when it comes to Pai Skincare goodies…
Previously known as Caru Skincare Co. (which I’ve featured and raved about in past posts), Apoterra Skincare is the rebranding of the same plant and mineral based, all-natural, sustainable, organic skincare line that I fell in love with. The new vintage floral, apothecary-inspired design and product packaging are refreshing and beautiful as ever. And the products? Founder Dominique Caron has refined and enhanced her formulas for even more effective and delicious skincare products. With moisturizers, serums, toners, facial treatments, and bath/body products, Apoterra Skincare has a great product offering that reaches all areas of every skincare routine.
Bottega Organica is a natural, organic skincare brand formulated with farm-fresh ingredients and healthy, effective scientific processes. There is so much to say about this high quality, thoughtfully-crafted brand that it requires such care and reflection when writing about them. I find it difficult to describe in words the caliber and luxury of these quality formulas but I’m hoping my in-depth commentary and photographs will suffice…
The much anticipated, first ever Indie Beauty Expo was last week and it was probably the biggest green beauty event to hit New York City since A Night For Green Beauty 2 years ago. Of course, I had to attend and I was honored to not only be attending as a blogger and beauty aficionado, but also representing the editorial team from Thoughtfully Magazinealong with our beauty editor, Rebecca Casciano.
There’s something about summer that causes a crazy surge in new and exciting product releases. A Night For Green Beauty (ANFGB) also happened this month in Chicago and many brands released new products or sneak peeks in time for the event. I generally distance myself from the seasonal frenzies (to protect my wallet and my sanity) but I had to share some of my favorite, lust-worthy new releases:
You know those brands that seem to have it all? Highly effective, pure formulas, sexy-simplistic design, and a cult following? I’d say that is what Josh Rosebrook’s hair and skin care products were for me. A gorgeous natural/organic brand I had heard so much about but realized I’d never experienced for myself. As my quest for cleaner and greener haircare evolved, I made known my curiosity in the shampoo and conditioner that everyone in the green beauty world seemed to be gushing over.
