Clean Beauty Catch-up

I’m still here!  This past month has been a whirlwind.  We finally moved into our new home, we didn’t have internet for 3 WEEKS, I was sick twice, and Woody has been undergoing lots of physical therapy (more on that below).  BUT, I haven’t forgotten about you.  In fact, I’m very happy to be back.

For the Face Oil-Averse

Long ago, I switched over to oil-everything, (oil cleansers, face oils, eye oils) and kissed creams and lotions goodbye.  I usually recommend oils over creams to readers and followers, too.  But, some of you just want a cream.  Some of you still want a face wash that lathers.  I get it.  We all have our […]

Your Ritual, On Rotation

I was so bummed when True Botanicals discontinued their subscription service, but they told me not to worry; they were coming out with something even better.  They delivered.  True Botanicals just launched their Sun & Moon Box, and if you are particular about using their skincare above all else, like me, you’re going to want […]

Pregnancy-Safe Skincare

There is so much controversy these days about what is truly safe to use/take/do during pregnancy.  I personally find it so strange that doctors in the US will tell a woman that Cheetos are safer to eat than an ounce of organic unpasteurized goat cheese, (I understand the risks of listeria, but still…) but if […]

Lazy Perfection + A Giveaway

Summertime, and the living’s… lazy…  The warmest season is my favorite season.  I love how we give ourselves permission to eschew the tight daily grind, the layers upon layers of clothing and serious skincare and makeup for spontaneous fun, easy dressing and paired-down beauty routines.  I thought this would be a great time to introduce […]

Summer Favorites at The Choosy Chick

Full disclosure: I love being tan.  However, I’m not in my twenties anymore, and my sun damage is starting to show, so you’ll find me using self tanner at night, and lots of SPF during the day.  (See my annual nontoxic sunscreen review here.)  Readers, followers, friends and family have been asking me nonstop lately, […]

AILLEA Opens in Charleston + A Giveaway

In case you haven’t heard, AILLEA, one of my favorite clean beauty retailers, just opened a new location here in Charleston.  It is a 10 minute walk from my house downtown, so to say that I am excited is an understatement!  AILLEA has two other locations in Denver, and one in Atlanta.  They are also […]
