Green Beauty Review: The Hits (and the Misses) From the Pura Botanicals Skincare Line

Green Beauty Review: The Hits (and the Misses) From the Pura Botanicals Skincare Line

Pura Botanicals is a Canadian company that believes in packing their products, which they adorably refer to as potions, with minimal yet powerful oils and herbs. Sometimes, when you’re reviewing a whole new line, it can get overwhelming trying to get a handle on all the ingredients, but Pura makes it a cinch to understand...

    Green Beauty Review: Flynn & King Lunar 13 Restorative Oil Elixir

    Use code ECOCULT for 15% off from now until March 30, 2017. As someone with oily skin, I once shied away from serums and found them unnecessary. But my skin has changed dramatically in my 30s, and it now seems to crave extra moisture, especially overnight. When Flynn & King offered me the chance to...

    Green Beauty Review: Humankind Apothecary

    Humankind Apothecary, a new natural skincare line based in the Hudson Valley, was born out of necessity. Founders Andrew Spitaleri and Olivier Solanet began their quest for cleaner products that were free of toxic ingredients after Spitaleri dealt with severe allergies for years.

    Take a Peek in My Medicine Cabinet and See My Clean Beauty Routine

      It’s been three years since I last posted a picture inside my medicine cabinet, and wow, have things change. First of all, my photography has gotten better. (Typical blogger skill arc.) But also, a lot of the products I love and use have changed! I’m looking, and the only things that have stayed consistent...

    Green Beauty Review: Manda Organic Sun Paste Is Quite Paste-y

    I love me some summer fun in the sun about as much as I love coral reefs – which is a lot. However, in some evil twist of modern day chemistry, most standard sunblocks contain toxins that harm the delicate ecosystems of reefs. These same toxins are absorbed through your incredibly porous skin when you...

    Green Beauty Review: Nourish Organic Is Coming Up Roses

    Rose gold, a glass of rosé wine, and dozens of roses are life’s simple pleasures that nourish my summer soul. Summer is also the optimal time to harness the beauty of the rose and strengthen my skin. It’s no coincidence a brand named Nourish Organics does just that. Their Face Lotion has slowly become my favorite beauty...

    Green Beauty Review: Violets Are Blue Skincare Is Perfect for the Most Sensitive and Picky of Women

    Violets Are Blue Skincare, a gorgeous line of natural products, began with a very personal quest. After a breast cancer diagnosis, founder Cynthia Besteman realized many of the products she used daily contained ingredients that were not truly safe or natural. Working with a biochemist, Besteman created her own skincare line filled with all-natural, organic...
    Green Beauty Review: RAW IS EVERYTHING

    Green Beauty Review: RAW IS EVERYTHING

    I ditched my daily moisturizer for a face oil for one week and here’s what happened … I’ve been using the same holistic skincare line for over 10 years. I have my routine down and my products on lock … you could say I’m attached. So the prospect of swapping my daily moisturizer for a...
