Meet Sappho New Paradigm

I have tried a LOT of different cosmetics brands, all with their own pros and cons. It is incredibly rare for me to find a brand that I love every single product, but Sappho New Paradigm has won that slot. I'll be completely honest, when I first applied a full face of Sappho, I don't... Continue Reading →

Gressa Bronzing Serum

The more I play with makeup, the more I realized I needed a solid liquid bronzer. You can really sculpt out the face before laying down your foundation to create a beautiful, natural contour. Most of the bronzers I've ever used (both powders and creams) contain some form of mica/shimmery component. While gorgeous, that doesn't exactly... Continue Reading →

Vered Divinité

Famed New York esthetician Vered Back is the master creator behind VERED organic Botanicals. Several years ago, I recall seeing an article about her and her hand crafted skincare and perfumes. At the time, I was just beginning my transition to clean beauty and searching far and wide for products and solutions. Fast forward several... Continue Reading →

Glossier Play Nite Shine

Glossier: the brand that doesn't get enough credit in the clean beauty space. It isn't touted as clean beauty per say, but most of their formulas rank low in the EWG database. It is not super natural necessarily, however their products are high performance. I love Glossier's concept of letting your natural beauty shine and... Continue Reading →

It makes for a streamlined routine (and bonus, less products to carry if you're on the go). If you're looking for richly pigmented organic makeup, look no further than Habit! These Multi-Use cremes pack... Continue Reading →

LXMI

  Something I am working to do more of; actively seek out companies who have sustainable sourcing and strong ethical practices. Those requirements intersect in LXMI (pronounced LUXE-ME). The entire line is built around the prized ingredient, nilotica (NILE-oh-TEE-CA). It's an incredibly rare form of shea butter that grows near the Nile Valley with a... Continue Reading →

My skin’s new best friend: the Elevare+

  Anti-aging. We're all familiar with the concept. It's everywhere - Magazines, creams, the latest celebrity  dermatology obsessions (hello vampire facials) and how to fight it. The truth is, aging happens to all of us, and it's a privilege! Aging means you've lived to see another day, and that is something none of us should... Continue Reading →

A’del Natural Cosmetics

If there's one thing I love when it comes to my makeup, it's a short ingredient list with a long wear time. That's often a tough order; however, somehow A'del magically pulls it off. If you've read through some of my other posts, you may remember the one about me being a Sephora addict. Yeah.... Continue Reading →
