Natural skincare and makeup products have been making a huge splash in the beauty industry lately. Natural ingredients are better for your skin, as they don’t contain any artificial additives that could cause long-term irritation. They’re also more eco-friendly and ethical. With the demand for great natural beauty products increasing, innovative new brands are stepping up with lines of all-natural and organic options. Here are some of our favorite natural beauty brands that have been making waves. 
Belif
This popular K-beauty brand is now available stateside, and they have a wide range of natural products to choose from. Their philosophy is to combine herbal apothecary traditions with modern Korean skincare research to create effective natural beauty products. Their formulas are rich with natural herbs, and complete transparency means you know exactly what you’re getting when you shop with them. 
Belif’s range of moisturizing products are particularly popular - their Aqua Bomb sleeping mask has a soothing gel texture and can help you wake up feeling glowy and refreshed.
Another unique product is the Pore Cleaner Bubble Foam, which soothes the skin and evens out skin texture. It’s a gel mask that foams and fizzes when applied for a fun skincare experience. 
Ren Clean Skincare
Ren is a brand that really prides themselves on being completely clean, and good for both your skin and the environment. They make products for both face and body care, as well as shampoo and conditioner. The brand has ranges for many different skin types, ranging from dry and oily as well as anti-aging, acne prone, and even products for pregnancy. All of Ren’s products are not only made from sustainable ingredients, but they also are packaged sustainably. Their products are also entirely vegan and cruelty free. 
One of their most popular products is their Clean Jelly Cleanser, which has a unique texture that can remove dirt and makeup without drying out the skin or removing healthy natural oils. The cleanser starts as a thick jelly but melts into an oil as you massage it onto the face. As you continue to rub in the product, it switches to a milk-like texture that’s easy to wash off.
Another favorite is their Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Ocean Plastic Body Wash. It has both moisturizing and toning properties to keep the skin on your body free and clear of dirt. 
Sand and Sky
Sand and Sky is a skincare brand based in Australia. They are known for using ingredients that are unique to Australia, most notably their Australian pink clay, which is very soothing and rich in minerals that can heal the skin. Founders Emily and Sarah Hamilton have studied skincare all over the world, but are bringing a unique Australian perspective to the beauty industry. 
One of the products that Sand and Sky is most well-known for is their pink clay mask. This thick clay mask is a great way to draw toxins out of the skin and is very helpful for those dealing with large pores and acne. In addition to Australian pink clay, this product contains a number of other natural ingredients that refine the skin’s appearance, helping it to stay clear and bright. With the success of their pink clay mask, they have expanded to offer a wide range of products. Some of their other popular products include their Australian Pink Clay smoothing body sand as well as their Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask. 
These natural beauty brands are changing the face of the industry, offering products that are good for the skin and the planet. With natural beauty products in your collection, you can feel confident knowing you’re using safe and environmentally friendly ingredients.

A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!

GRWM! New products and some old!
GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
