Emerald is one of my favorite products from this clean brand. I generally use it when I need extra hydration or when I want to give my face a glowy finish. I love how it smells, TBH the first time I tried I didn’t like it at all, but the next day I loved it, it is a very relaxing smell and sometimes I even perceive it differently. It is excellent for calming redness, if you are looking for an oil for this, this could be a good option. HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil

This beauty elixir has not worked well for me either, it causes me burning when applied. Caudalie is a clean brand that uses essential oils in some of its products. Many people don’t recommend essential oils for topical use as they can cause irritation, photosensitivity, etc. TBH I really believe that the ingredients (essential oils) of this product are the cause of irritation or maybe alcohol. It smells delicious and many people recommend it but it didn't work for me. CAUDALIE - Limited Edition Beauty Elixir

Sometimes a clean product is not for everyone
Speaking of which there are products for each person, I think there are also clean products that are not for everyone. In my case, this herbivore mist caused me irritation and burning. It’s ingredients are good, but I suppose that some of the ingredients of this, no matter how natural they are, my skin doesn’t tolerate them. HERBIVORE - Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist

I try to eat as healthy as possible and stay away from products with refined flours, sugars and unhealthy snacks and eat as much as I can of water or tea a day. When I have time I go for a walk or jump the rope for 30 minutes. To improve intestinal health, I took a shot of coconut kefir in the morning and at night. Regarding beauty products, as I mentioned in another post, my beauty routine is based on retinol that is not from a clean brand. However, I did combine retinol with clean oils occasionally, depending on whether I need a little more hydration (Emerald) or oil control (Lapis). I try to check labels and I prefer products that have less ingredients, both food and beauty products.

Clean beauty 💜
Although I love clean beauty, I don't necessarily rely on it to buy or use it. My beauty routine is based on a retinol brand that is not clean beauty. Clean beauty had a lot of impact a few years ago when the people began to realize that everything we put on the skin or hair was absorbed by the body. It’s very valid to think about this since many people can get irritated with certain ingredients and from others could be fine. It’s basis is not to use chemicals that could be toxic or harmful to health and to use ingredients as natural as possible. Although many companies often say that their products are clean, we must always check that what they tell us is real, since they could be using it as a sales strategy. I have clean products that I love and would really buy again. I like clean products.

perfect companion for travel bags & gym bags
FIRST IMPRESSIONS | I’ve been using this for a week, and so far, really good! A few drops go a long way, and this is what I pack in my gym bag for after my shower - i can’t be bothered packing my entire skincare routine with me, so my post-gym workout skincare routine goes a little something like this: toner, mermaid oil, moisturiser, sunscreen and lip balm! this oil is perfect for dry skin and it got the tick of sensitive skin approval from me because I didn’t react to it at all! this is probably one of the few sample products that I will actually repurchase myself.

Japanese hype product
#MUJI - Moisturizing Milk High Moisture[products]#[FiveStars] MUJI moisturizing milk high moisture My first MUJI skincare product and it’s great. Like amazing. Everyone in Japan was buying so I thought why not. Although, I’m going to start off by that it’s not going to do anything revolutionary. It’s just a great great great moisturizing milk for every skin type and in every situation. You can layer it with any skincare product in any part of your routine, you can use it alone, you can use it on your face etc. And this will results in more hydrated skin and softer skin. It’s so affordable and such a simple formula and I love it because of that. It has radically changed my friend’s skin, when going from no skincare routine to only this and I can say his skin is so soft and supple and glowy. He noticed. I noticed. Everyone noticed. This stuff is amazing and universal! Literally for everyone. So go get this if you’re in a Muji store. They have mini sizes that go for $6 or something. I’ve gone throw 4 minis and two huge bottles so don’t @ me. The milky and lightweight texture will leave a slight residue but it’s fine. Layer it, tap it in or whatever you need to do and you won’t feel it. Super worth it!!

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I absolutely LOVE having my complexion look dewy and glowy. That’s exactly why I decided to purchase the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. Because the weather outside has been much colder, my skin feels really dry after doing my makeup, even after thoroughly moisturizing. I was wanted a product I could apply to my face, after completing my makeup, that would bring the hydration and luminosity back into my face. This mist seemed like the perfect option since it’s packed with hydrating properties: 20% botanical oils, humectants, Okinawa red algae, and hyaluronic acid. Additionally, this product is also made with a trio of anti-aging ingredients — rice, green tea, and algae. Overall I would say that this product is just okay. I am still on the fence of whether or not it is completely worth the money. One thing I really like is the the physical mister. It delivers a very fine mist, that coats the entire face in one spray. It feels extremely luxurious and cooling. The problem that I was facing is that it makes the face extremely shiny, rather than just dewy. I find myself blotting off the excess after spraying my face down. I think I need to experiment a bit more with this product before writing it off completely!

NEW from Glow Recipe! 🍉
A product I’ve been obsessing over since I received it! The Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Lip Pop 😍 What it is: a three-in-one scrub to balm that smooths, hydrates and tints lips in a universal pop of pink. Made for all skin types and those who experience dryness, dullness and uneven texture. The innovative formula that is made with watermelon extract to hydrate and deliver essential vitamins, flower-derived AHA to gently smooth, soften and hydrate and coconut flower sugar to provide physical exfoliation to gently remove dead skin while moisturizing. First impression: IM IMPRESSED! You right away feel the exfoliation but quickly melts to a smooth and moisturizing balm. I love the scent, not an overbearing watermelon scent. Smells sweet and yummy! I love the natural pink color it gives my lips. You can also apply more to build up the pink! I use this probably everyday and I’m pretty sure I’ll finish this one up quickly 🙈 price: $22.00
