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.
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!
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.

I think most people in the green beauty world are of the same camp; we’re all looking for the next best thing that can put up some serious dukes against conventional products.

I recently discovered Philtre, a new online shop based in San Francisco that specializes in eco-luxe, non-toxic products that are made in the USA. Philtre (pronounced “filter”) caught my eye for its unique organic and natural skincare, beauty, and haircare brands that range from affordable to luxurious.

She eventually had a career in marketing and publishing, as well as working with the United Nations for several years, leading her to travel all over the world. Here, Heidi shares about her unique background, her relationship with green beauty, and what sets Philtre apart from other online shops:
