Have you ever been close to someone wearing perfume and gotten a headache from it? I sure have! (If you’ve ever wondered why those perfumes give you headaches, check outthis article for some additional info.)
With Inkling Scents, there is a lot less risk of a headache, because these little beauties are made with essential oils and naturally derived perfume oils. And they smell amazing!
With natural perfumes, you may want to re-apply after several hours, but that’s not a problem with the mini roll-ons.
I love Pulse because it’s a perfect mix of sweet and floral, which I love. Of course, perfume is such a personal thing, but Inkling Scents has so many varieties that you’re bound to find one you love. If there’s one in particular you’d like to try out, let us know and we can send a little sample with your next order.
Here’s the thing with this product: if your hair tends to be oily or thin, don’t use this oil!
My hair is thick, coarse and naturally curly. I straighten it almost every day, so it is DRY and can get frizzy.
Here’s how I use HollyBeth’s Hair and Body Silk: I mix it with a bit of styling cream (I personally love Neuma styling creams), and concentrate on my ends, but also put a bit on the top layer of my hair to keep the flyaways at bay.
Plus, I absolutely love the scent. But fair warning: it is a bit on the musky side.
I also love to use this heavenly oil on my dry skin in the winter. ‘Cause you know, those scaly winter legs aren’t too pretty!
If you’ve ever tried finding natural mascara that works and stays on all day, you know what a challenge that can be. I loveLily Lolo’s Big Lash mascara because it gives my lashes the perfect amount of length and volume, and it lasts all day.
Plus, it has a cool hourglass brush that lets you cover all the parts of your lashes.
I also love thePure Anada mascara and it has many, many fans, but for me, Big Lash wins out when it comes to my daily routine.
Truth be told, I’ve been using these toners for years, and wanting to have them on hand all the time is one of the reasons I wanted to start my own green beauty company.
This may seem a bit strange, but I actually use both of them. I have combination skin, so I spray the Clarifying toner first where I tend to break out (chin and forehead), then I use the Strengthening toner everywhere.
I also like to use the Strengthening Toner to set my powder makeup to keep it looking dewy and not powdery.
I use both toners morning and night, even if I’m oil cleansing.
This product is the holy grail of skincare products and I use it every single day. I don’t travel without it either. (It also comes in a handy travel size.)
Because my skin is on the sensitive side and tends to get red pretty easily, I love the soothing properties of this gel. I also love how gentle it is. It’s also an amazing moisturizer if your skin tends to get oily.
My husband uses this gel on his eczema, a friend uses it on his sensitive skin, and another friend uses it as a moisturizer. Also works great on breakouts, sunburns, and rashes.
It’s a seriously great product and I’ve never encountered anything similar!
2. Āether Beauty eyeshadow palettes
Here, we have a three-way tie for second place. Because I love each of the Āether Beauty palettes equally and use at least one of them pretty much every day. These stunning palettes are also great for travel, because they allow you to minimize the number of products in your luggage, while maximizing the number of looks you can create. Each one includes darker shades that I love to use as an eyeliner (with a bit of water and a liner brush) that lasts all day.
Here’s a description of these three perfect palettes: There’s the original,Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone palette. It’s the one that started it all. Perfect neutral shades, with a mix of shimmer and matte. Plus, if you really want to minimize the number of products in your makeup bag when you travel, the pinks can be used as blush and the white as highlighter.
Here you have it beauties, we finally get to my #1 favorite green beauty product.
If you’re not familiar with Agent Nateur skincare, it’s an exquisite, luxury line made of the finest ingredients sourced around the world, but primarily in France.
To be honest, I wasn’t that inclined to even try Holi(c), but I decided to give it a try when I got a sample. From that time on, I was hooked!
This is a unique skincare product, in that it’s a little bottle of actual powder vitamins that you mix with water, toner, or oil/moisturizer to apply to your skin. It has a multitude of skin-refining properties, and I have been loving the results! I use it every morning, mixed withSoothing Gel andHoli(oil).
Even though they didn’t make it to my Top-10 list, here are a couple of amazing products that deserve some recognition:
