Clean beauty is my kind of beauty.💚💚💚 Proud to be one of the judges of the CertClean Beauty Awards 2018.🌱 Last year was my first year judging, and I have to admit, being pretty green to the clean beauty game, I was a little weary of how well the products would actually work -- but I kid you not, it was an amazingly awesome experience.👍🏽 And I can honestly say that clean beauty products WORK.💁🏽♀️ Goodness without all that harmful guck! Pretty damn awesome ❤️ I've been hooked since, and learning a lot, thanks to so many incredible people in the clean beauty industry who are changing perceptions and standards for us all.
Now in its 4th year, the Clean Beauty Awards celebrates the very best performing products, created with the healthiest ingredients, from around the world. Its goal is to celebrate the power of the clean, or "free from", beauty movement through this annual Awards, hosted by CertClean and supported by a wide panel of judges. Thankyou for allowing me to part of this once again. Cheers to clean beauty for all!🍾

TWELVE DAYS OF TOXIC CHEMICALS TO AVOID:
Formaldehyde: Cosmetics companies often use what they call “preservative systems” to preserve their products. These systems employ any one of several chemicals, called “formaldehyde releasers," that, when mixed with water, will decompose slowly over time to form molecules of formaldehyde. The reactions that generate formaldehyde occur silently as the products sit on shelves in stores or bathroom cabinets.
According to the FDA, nearly 1 in 5 cosmetic products contains a substance that generates formaldehyde. These include, Nail polish, nail glue, eyelash glue, hair gel, hair-smoothing products, baby shampoo, body soap, body wash, and color cosmetics.
Horrifyingly, a product label won’t tell you if formaldehyde is present, because it's the result of a chemical reaction rather than a direct ingredient. However, you can avoid products with the following formaldehyde releasing chemicals:
* DMDM hydantoin
* Imidazolidinyl urea
* Diazolidinyl urea
* Bronopol (2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol )
The U.S. government and World Health Organization have classified formaldehyde as carcinogenic when its fumes are inhaled. And research shows that cosmetic products can release small amounts of formaldehyde into the air shortly after they are applied. Formaldehyde is also a potent skin sensitizer and allergen. Similarly, formaldehyde-releasing chemicals are allergens and skin irritants as well.
To be sure, the amount of formaldehyde in a cosmetic product at any given time is tiny. The cancer risks presented by a cosmetic could be considered slight -- however, people are also exposed to formaldehyde by pressed-wood products, cigarette smoke, vehicle exhaust and unvented fuel-burning appliances to name a few. Personal care products that contain formaldehyde make an unnecessary contribution to an individual’s exposure to this chemical.
I am proud to say that Beautycounter does not use any of these formaldehyde-releasing chemicals in any of its products!

🎄 The kids might not look like it, but they were SO excited to pick out this year’s lil cedar tree from our “front yard”. No, really... they were a hot mess 😂. George was angry that we didn’t want to axe a 15 footer and Cecilia was in a mood because it was cold and rainy and she kept dropping Lamby in the mud. Tree decorating yesterday, however, was 👌👼.⠀
Embracing ALL the holiday feels, because let’s face it, this time of year can be stressful and the best gift you can give to your family is a loving presence with a healthy dose of compassion and kindness 🤗 🎁. ⠀
I received the @garnierusa
Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water complimentary from @influenster
and I love it! This mist soaks up into the skin to reveal a healthy glow and leaves you smelling like roses. The Garnier Skinactive mist is made with 99% Naturally-Derived Ingredients so you know the ingredients are both nourishing and beneficial for your skin. This product is my new go-to for preping my skin but can be used as a moisturizer to hydrate, before makeup as a primer, after makeup to set it, and anytime throughout the day to refresh skin. No need to rinse. Suitable for sensitive skin. 💖 🌹

Review: Tata Harper Creme Riche
I hate that I love this because it’s so expensive. Upfront, I got it for less than 50 bucks with a 100 dollar Sephora reward and a 25% off code. It’s absolutely brilliant and some of the best work I’ve seen from Tata Harper. Apparently it took over 2 years to formulate. Read on for specifics or scroll down for the tea.
Price: $185/1.7oz. This is Tata’s most exposure moisturizer (the others are $110) The price puts it squarely in the luxury category; it even comes with a lil spoon. I use less than a pea size so it will last a while. They sell a baby for $33 if you’re uncertain.
Ingredients: “43 high performance ingredients” Tata has always been a more is more kind of brand and that’s very present here. In fact, it’s so lengthy it’s hard to pick out the featured ingredients in this as it’s hard to know what is actually in a high concentration. Note: Also in classic Tata fashion, it has EOs. I find them bothersome in some of her products, but not here at all.
Performance: Wowowow. This is where it got me. I use it as a last step. It’s light, sinks in quickly, and leaves a semi-matte finish. Surprisingly, it also leaves me significantly more hydrated than anything I’ve ever tried. It leaves me with that, “I just woke up from a nap outside and sweat a lil bit” glow. L
TL;DR: An absolutely delicious moisturizer that I know will be saving me this winter. However, you have to be a lover of skincare to appreciate its $185 dollar worth. If you’re new to skincare or don’t have the funds, there are clearly other far less pricey options you’ll enjoy. BUT if you love skincare, got money to burn, have normal-dry skin, and don’t love a crazy dewy finish, you might never want another moisturizer again. Repurchase? If I have that coin, yes.

I’m currently at work and you guys today I had an allergic reaction to CoverGirl Clean Matte BB cream. It made my skin red, itchy, and super warm. Thankfully I had makeup wipes available (I only use wipes when I’m on the go lol) so I took it off but my face still feels pretty sensitized... What do you usually do after experiencing an allergic reaction?? Please let me know ❤️. I usually do a sheet mask but sadly I can’t wear one at work 😂😭 wish I could.

Wintergreen’s refreshing minty aroma is stimulating and invigorating. It’s a great addition to lotions to massage on tired muscles! It’s also the main ingredient in Panaway, which we aaaalllll should have on hand for e.ver.y.thing!! I am especially thankful for it when I feel like my head is going to explode!
