Clean Beauty Catch Up: October

It’s Halloween, so I’m going to make this a quick post.  (I’m so excited to take the kids trick or treating in our new neighborhood tonight!)  I recently went into AILLEA, and there were so many new releases.  I picked up one of each to try and review for you.  True Botanicals also just launched […]

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, […]

New Lily Lolo Favorites

A clean cosmetics line that I don’t talk about nearly enough is Lily Lolo.  Yes, I have been raving about their mascara for years, (it is my all-time favorite clean mascara, and I’ve tried them all), but the rest of the collection is amazing, too!  And, their packaging is really great.  It’s sturdy, it’s attractive, […]

Favorites from Integrity Botanicals

Sometimes, I look at my product closet, and I find a perfect, cohesive story (i.e. 5 awesome bronzers you need to try).  Other times when I look, all I can see are some amazing products that are completely unrelated – that I really want to talk about.  Today is one of those days.  Integrity Botanicals […]

Want Soft Focus Skin?

We’ve all heard claims like “makeup-and-skincare-in-one”.  I don’t know about you, but that term usually makes me skeptical.  However, this cooler, drier weather does have me thinking…  Even with my combination to oily skin, I’ve needed an extra boost of moisture lately, and my Summer glow is GONE, so I need a little help in […]
