My beauty routine is ever evolving. It started off in my teenage years with Neutrogena then to overly priced “magazine worthy” facial scrubs in my twenties now to my current favorites of natural, inexpensive and simple products in my thirties. These days I’m all about the simple and natural option. Although I have a few more items I use daily these are the ones I feel are the most underrated but highly respected items in my cabinet.
Konjac Sponge: THE best facial sponge!!!
“Ideal for all the family, our bestselling 100% Pure Konjac Sponge deeply cleanses, removes blackheads and gently exfoliates the skin. The unique net like structure of the vegetable fibres helps to stimulate blood flow and promote skin cell renewal. Approximately 8cm wide, it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand for easy cleansing. Just add water for the ultimate in natural skin care.”
Rosemary Essential Oil: Add a few drops to your shampoo!!!
“Rosemary oil is one of the most popular essential oils for its wide array of health benefits including its ability to stimulate hair growth.”
Redmond Clay: Facial Mask that will change your life!!! I also use this for my underarm detox. So many ways to use this!!!
“Redmond Clay is a completely natural bentonite clay, extracted from the earth and brought to you in its pure, natural state. Redmond Clay is available as a fine powder, pre-hydrated gel, or in easy-to-swallow capsules. Redmond Clay™ remains as pure today as it was when the Fremont indians discovered its uses long ago. As our world returns to more natural lifestyles, more and more people keep Redmond Clay in their medicine cabinets, first aid kits, and purses. Discover for yourself the healing benefits of Redmond Clay.”
Humphrey’s Witch Hazel: My go-to for a quick and easy wipe down. Great for spot treatments!!!
“Pure. That’s how your face and body will feel after every encounter with our Witch Hazel Astringent. It’s the perfect way to wake up in the morning and unwind at the end of the day. Unlike other astringents, our 100% all-natural formula has been used to gently cleanse and soothe even the most sensitive skin. Made from extracts of the Witch Hazel plant, our exclusive formula penetrates deep into pores, removing dirt, oil and makeup – leaving your skin soft, smooth and younger looking without drying your skin the way some artificial products can.”
Alba Lip Balm: Hands down best lip balm!!!
“Organic coconut oil moisturizes thirsty lips while natural plant waxes protect against drying.”
DevaCurl: Since making the decision to embrace my natural curls I feel like I’ve tried tons of “curly” hair products. If you have curly hair let me help to save you time and money. This is the absolute BEST shampoo & conditioner. Literally my curls have never been so manageable. If you are looking to LOVE your curls make sure you also book an appointment with the curl Dr. himself aka Shai Ariel.
“No-Poo Decadence® Zero Lather Ultra Moisturizing Milk Cleanser was created specifically for curly and super curly hair craving extra moisture, strength, and nourishment. It gently cleanses without stripping away the natural oils your curls need. The soothing formula provides maximum moisture and nourishment for your hair and scalp.”
