The event called, “Let’s Talk Natural Beauty with Well + Good!” was filled with so much insightful information from how to read beauty product ingredient labels to the connection between skin health and diet. Here are some highlights: Panelists • Ali Finney, Beauty Editor, Well + Good • Tina … Continue reading EVENT RECAP: Clean Beauty Labels and Ingredients

Natural Brand Review: Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

I’ve been trying several natural deep conditioners for my hair and Briogeo is definitely one of my top 3. This is not a sponsored post; I really do use this product weekly. It really softens my hair and keeps my curls looking smooth, especially after heat styling.

Natural Brand Product Review: Inna Organic’s Myrr Detoxifying Mask

I’ve become a sheet mask fan…even though I can’t really tell if they really do anything for my skin. I just think they’re a fun thing to incorporate into a self-care regimen because they force you to not do anything for 10-15 minutes or risk it falling off. I recently tried this Myrr Detoxifying mask from Inna Organic, which is meant to hydrate and give … Continue reading Natural Brand Product Review: Inna Organic’s Myrr Detoxifying Mask

The line was started back in 2011 when the brand’s founder Jonathan realized that many of the products on the market contain chemicals that may contribute to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), a phenomenon that … Continue reading Clean Beauty Find: BEECAUSE

Clean Beauty Find: Soapwalla

Bob’s Red Mill ground oats, pure almonds and organic raw sugar – these are not the ingredients of the breakfast I had this morning (although it sounds delicious!); they are, however, just a few of the ingredients used in products from skin care line, Soapwalla. The line was developed in 2012 by Rachel Winard who has systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune illness, which was … Continue reading Clean Beauty Find: Soapwalla
