Top Shelf Skincare Favorites Part 2
Happy Friday friends! The weekend is back and I am looking forward to spending some time with my bestie and celebrate her birthday! What are you looking forward to doing?!
This is my second blog post on clean/chemical free products that I have been testing out and I am so excited about it. Now, whenever I put products on my body I feel so good about the decisions I am making! I am not wondering what is in the products or if it will adversely affect me later on down the line anymore, it is such a great feeling! One thing that is super important to me, besides what is in the products, is the price. I try to steer clear of unreasonable expensive products because chances are I will not purchase them more than once. I have a budget and I need to make sure I am buying reasonably priced products that work.
Below are 9 new products that I have been using for a while and my thoughts on all of them! Most of them are staples in my everyday routine and have some amazing ingredients in them free of all the crap you find in most of the stuff out there! Check it out below and let me know what you think!
These 3-in-1 Facial Towelettes are my favorite, infused with aloe and chamomile and extra gentle for delicate eyes and sensitive skin! They are perfect to throw in the gym bag after a workout, in a toiletries bag during travels, in the morning after a long night or at night to quickly get makeup off. They are such a great find that doesn’t break the bank, they smell great too! Other towelettes that are sold at drug stores have a lot of different and unnecessary chemicals in them and they tend to really dry out my skin. I couldn’t find these on the EWG but I was able to find clean and clear cleansing wipes as well as the Neutrogena towelettes to take makeup off your face and they were rated a 4! The Honest Company’s rating in general is 1-3 so it has less crap in it while doing the same thing!
I have been using this Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser for a few months now and it has become my go-to face wash at night to get my make up off. It smells good, lathers well and takes everything off of my face! It is combination botanical blend of chamomile, calendula, yucca root extract and Saponaria. There is no residue after the fact and my face feels so fresh after it is removed!
I have had this Foaming Cream Cleaner for a few months now and it is not the best face wash I have ever tried because it is super thin and doesn’t lather too well but I have not fully discounted it. I like to keep it around for when I don’t wear makeup and still want to lightly wash my face before bed. I also use it as a second face wash on days I wear heavier makeup and need a little more help getting it all off! It smells good and the charcoal helps draw out impurities from the skin which is always a plus! If you are the type that does not wear a lot of makeup and like to gently cleanse your skin this would be a great product for you!
If you have been looking for an everyday moisturizer I would highly recommend this Nourishing Day Cream(EWG rated: 2). It is a really great weight and it hydrates the skin very well, a little goes a long way so it lasts for a decent amount of time. It is unscented which I love and it contains a mix of organic coconut oil, safflower oil, and aloe plus antioxidant-rich acai to protect against dry skin. I always have this face lotion on hand, especially in the winter, and I like to use it along with face oils to help battle the severe dry skin I tend to get.
This Purifying Charcoal Mask is THE BEST (EWG rated: 2)! For the times you want to pamper yourself you put it all over your face, let it dry and remove with warm water. You will feel like a million bucks afterward and it is so satisfying! You can also use it as a spot treatment to dry out zits and it works like a charm! I use it both ways and it is one of my favorite skincare products that I have. It also makes an amazing gift for a girlfriends birthday or the perfect products for a girls night watching the Bachelor!
I don’t know what I would do without my Peppermint Lip Conditioner (EWG rated:1). You know how people say that chapstick is addicting? Well, this is one addiction I can get behind. The peppermint cools the lips and it is so soothing. I use it before I go to bed and wake up with the softest lips ever, I also use it before I put on my lip liner and lipstick and my lips feel amazing all day long! Since we are constantly eating the chapstick we wear (by accident of course) it is important to put products on them that are chemical free and safe to injest!
The Organic Retinol Facemask is so good! My girlfriend gave it to me for my birthday and I am hooked on it! If you know me you know that I am obsessed with trying different face masks but this one takes the cake. There are a few different options in the line and all of them work in different ways. I love putting on a facemask and taking 20 minutes to do nothing or meditate. It has become one of my favorite way to relax after a long day! CLICK HERE for the 5 pack to get more bang for your buck!
Everyone needs this Spot-On Remedy treatment in their life, this one has 2% salicylic acid. I use it at night on my blemishes before I go to bed as well as before I put my makeup on in the morning and it helps decrease the size and redness a lot faster than they would on their own. It is made with rosehip and neem extracts and I have replaced it with the clean and clear spot treatment!
Though I have not been using this Instant Eye Makeup Remover for a very long time, I can already tell you that I am loving it! I don’t need a lot of it to get my make up off and there is no residue when I am done. The best part is that it does not irritate my skin like lots of other drugstore makeup removers do! I will keep you guys update on my thoughts after using it for a while but so far so good!!
