This is the BEST nude natural lip color lipstick for me! I am in love with it and it is a nice creamy moisturizing formula LOVE it
I have this in Pomegranite and at first when It arrived I was disappointed in how light it was, but upon trying it I now love it. It is my go to first layer lip treatment. I usually add some layer of more color on top either lipstick or gloss because on me it is basically the same color as my lips. Sometimes I just wear it alone because it even out my lipcolor and it is nicely hydrating and smooth with no real scent. I would buy it again!
Best mineral makeup I've tried! Like it much better than BE or Jane Iredale! Price is very reasonable, they also have great customer service. Alima's color selection is really good. Jane Iredale was always too pink for my light Olive skin. I now wear Alima Olive 1.5 and Love it. Perfect match for me. It doesn't dry me out either or make my skin look shiny. I always wear moistuizer under it and spritz with rosewater or Earth Science hydrating toner right after. I use a JI flat brush to apply and have also played around with mixing it into oil or moisturizer. Highly recommend this brand!
Moisturizers -Aubrey Organics - Rosa Mosqueta Rose Hip Moisturizing Cream

I have been loving this moisturizer all winter long! It feels hydrating and not greasy, sinks in well to my skin and is perfect under my sunscreen(Devita Body Block) and Mineral Makeup (Alima). It has been my go to moisturizer throughout my whole pregnancy as well. I had to put away my Jurlique moisturizer because I couldn't take the scent but the Aubrey Rosa Mosqueta has not bothered me one bit. It has never irritated my face . Only down side is that it does seperate so remember to shake it up well. Sometimes at night I add a little extra oil to it (hemp, coconut or jojoba). Love it
This is the most expensive foundation I have ever purchased, but per the advise of many good reviewers it doesn't take much to provide lovely sheer coverage. This foundation feels so light and hydrating on my skin, I hardly know I have it on. It blends really well and seems to last all day at least in winter, not sure how it will be in the heat. I am very impressed so far. Took off one lippy for the bottle with no pump.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara

This is a fairly good "green" mascara. I like the packaging. It seems to smudge and flake pretty easily however which is a bummer. Don't bother applying on lower lashes as it will smudge extra fast. Pro's are the cost is low , it is widely available in drugstores, and it is a nice green option. There is no real scent which is also nice. It is a "dry" formula as opposed to a glossy mascara , which may be why it flakes so easily. I would not buy again. Think I prefer Gabrielle Cosmetics mascara, but it is a good option because it is easy to find and organic.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Lomi Lomi Body Oil

I stumbled across this at my local Whole Foods Store. It is so amazing. Super hydrating and smells beautiful, like a subtle tropical floral scent with something else I can't place, mango or coconut but not too strong. It comes in a big brown glass bottle with a dropper, which is a great stable design. One could always decant some for traveling. It makes my skin feel like velvet. Here are the ingrdients: Organic Olive oil, sesame, kukui nut, avocado, coconut oil, EO of lomi lomi EO blend, co2 extract of calendula, Vitamin E T-50. It is a small Carmel, CA company and can be found online @ greenvalleylab.com Check it out, cost about $13 for 4 oz, but is quite rich, a little goes a long way.
Tinted Moisturizer -MAC - Studio Moisture Tint SPF15

I am loving this TM. I wear the Medium Dark, which is a great match and the coverage is very sheer and natural looking. It evens out my skin tone nicely and does NOT get shiny or orange as the day goes on. My only complaints are I wish it was SPF 30 and maybe a little "greener" but it is pretty great
I just bought this in the color AUBURN. It was super cheap maybe $6 at Bed Bath and Beyond store. I love it as a lip color. It is a lovely rosey bronze color which is quite pigmented and can be layered for a stronger effect. I tried it on my cheeks and it is a pretty nice bronzer . Doesn't seem to last a s a cheek color but is a great pigmented gloss. I'm uploading 2 pics of the AUBURN color
Shampoo -Aubrey Organics - White Camellia & Jasmine Conditioning Shampoo

Why oh why didn't I read the reviews for this one! I went to repurchase the Honeysuckle Rose one and my local store was out so I though why not try the white camelia one how different can it be...well it sucks it is super heavy greasy and I am hoping they will exchange it even though I lost the receipt!! Can't even use it for washing hand washables Do not recommend!!
stumbled across this yesterday at Real Foods in SF. I had recently bought the Alba version of this in Garnet which is too Fushia for me. This Tinted balm is perfect. Less pinky fushia, has a bit more earth tone too it which I like and the texture is super very creamy and hydrating and no scent or mint oil. It was only $3.49 I love it!
Lip Gloss -Aubrey Organics - Natural Lips Sheer Tint

I am reviewing the color "Autumn Frost" I am loving this gloss so much. I have been using it every day. It is great for day and night. It is a coppery sheer gloss. Shimmery NOT frosty. It looks very subtle on my natural lip color but you can layer it up and make it more intense. Layers really nicely over lipsticks. It feels light No stickiness at all on lips! It is all natural . Smells kind of brown sugary but not too sweet. No noticable taste. I can't wait to try more of the colors. Also in the cold weather it feels quite protective on my lips EDIT: LOVE THESE GLOSSES. JUST BOUGHT SHEER PINK WHICH IS A BRIGHT DARK ROSE SHEER COLOR ( NO FROST) JUST UPLOADED 2 PICS OF THE SHEER PINK. THIS ONE SMELLS LIKE STRAWBERRY. THESE TOTALLY ROCK
This is my perfect winter bronzer! I ran across this at Sephora and it is a lovely warm, peachy tan. Not too orange or brown and not sparkly but also not flat matte. It has SPF 15 which is a nice bonus. Comes in a lovely copper flat compact with mirror. I think it was around $11 Great price. It has a mild scent which I like. Smells like honeysuckle
A beautiful True Red lipstick, made with natural oils. It feels great on the lips. Doesn't seem to feather. It is a color that you can layer for more depth and it is on the matte side of the spectrum but not drying. At $14.99 at my Wholw Foods it is about the same cost as MAC Viva Glam. I'm happy to have stumbled across this red, perfect for my Holiday season
This is my favorite shampoo bar yet. It is less drying than the Chagrin Valley Summer sunshine bar I had been using. I find it cleans well but doesn't strip my hair. It is full of good for the hair Ayurvedic herbs and lathers nicely. The smell is herbal but mild I find it rinses out well and leaves my hair very full. I use a very mild ACV rinse after this bar but not every time. It is not waxy like some bars. Still I find that for my hair it is best to switch shampoos so I like this bar in rotation with Aubrey Organics or Giovanni
