September Beauty Heroes: Skin Owl

Hi Stranger!  Sorry for the radio silence – the last two weeks have kind of done a number on me.  I’ll preface this with the fact that I know that I am very fortunate, and that mostly I’m managing blessings and first world problems.  But, damn, hurricane season is the worst, even if your home […]

Does Your Skincare Routine Need a Boost?

It’s almost Labor Day Weekend!  Yay!!!  But before you go, I want to discuss an awesome new launch that I am really impressed by.  (I think) all of you know that I am a True Botanicals devotee.  When nothing else, natural or otherwise, would help my crazy hormonal cystic acne 3 years ago, their products […]

Beauty Heroes August: Mahalo Skincare

Hi there, Bare Beauties!  Oh, August…..  Summer is almost over, and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad.  I’m a true summertime girl at heart, but having children changes things..  I am really missing having a tighter routine, and I feel like my kids are going nuts without as much of one as […]

100% Pregnancy-Safe Skincare

Last month, True Botanicals launched a much-needed new line, BASICS.  I wrote all about it here, but something I did not discuss much is that it is 100% safe for pregnancy.  Personally, after a lot of research, I felt very comfortable using True Botanicals CLEAR line on my acne-prone throughout my second pregnancy, but some […]

The Nontoxic Primer You’ve Been Waiting For

It’s Friday, so I’m going to get straight to the point.  Hynt Beauty Sun Prep SPF 30 has done what I thought was impossible.  They’ve created a transparent moisturizer, primer (that is silicone-free, I might add) and broad spectrum SPF, all-in-one. It is light, silky, and will absolutely not break you out.  SCORE.  The main ingredient […]

What I Reorder from Ayla Beauty

I am often asked what I really use.  Technically, I really use everything I blog about; I use each product until I have a handle on its full benefits.  If it’s skincare, I test a product for about a month before writing about it, but if it’s a lipgloss, I might just test it for […]

July Beauty Heroes: Josh Rosebrook

How is it Thursday?  How is it mid-July?  How am I 35?  For being known as the time of year during which everyone slows down, this summer sure is flying by.  I’m really excited to tell you about this month’s Beauty Heroes Box.  It’s one of my favorites so far this year.  I promise you […]

Cool Off: The Best Nontoxic Toners

It’s hot, humid and sticky here in Charleston, and I’ve been reaching for my mists, toners, hydrosols, sprays, anything to keep me feeling refreshed.  Back in the day, Clinique and the like drilled into our heads, “Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize”.  It was the thing to do.  Little did we know that most toners were basically just […]

June Beauty Heroes: Honua Skincare

For the last few weeks (which have flown by), I’ve been experimenting with the products from the Beauty Heroes June box.  I have to say, I have a love/hate relationship with testing new skincare.  On the one hand, I know what works for me, so I can be lazy or hesitant to shake things up.  On the […]
