Lips need to be taken care just like any other part of your body, so don’t leave them out. There are a ton of different lip glosses and chap sticks out there. Way too many to name. My top 4 as of now are the following:
C O Bigelow’s Mentha lip gloss is minty and moisturizing. It lasts a pretty long time. Every time I wear it I know I don’t have to worry about reapplying a million times. There are many other different flavors to try if you don’t like minty ones.
Burt’s Bee’s chap stick is my secret weapon of chap stick. In my opinion it is the best out there. Not only does is do wonders for your lips, but Burt’s Bees is an Earth-friendly company that makes natural products. I recommend all of their products. It’s affordable, good for our environment, and it works.
I’m also a huge fan of lip plumpers. Lip Venom from DuWop is one of my favorites, because I feel it working. I love the tingling sensation. The only thing that sucks is that it costs $16 and it’s really tiny. So I only buy it once in a while.
I had to leave the most interesting for last. Soap&Glory is a line of beauty and body products that are fun to use. Aside from the lip gloss having such a fun name (Sexy Mother Pucker) this lip plumper causes some major tingling. And not just tingling, it feels like if your lips are vibrating. I kid you not. If you want to try a lip plumper or any lip gloss you have to try Sexy Mother Pucker. You can find the line of products at Target. Don’t you want your lips to vibrate? =)
It’s so important to appreciate the earth and everything it gives us. It’s up to every single person to do their part in helping save our planet. There are so many little things we all can do like recycling, making sure we don’t leave water running, turning off lights when they aren’t needed, and reusing bags instead of always getting a ton of bags from stores we know we’ll just throw out once we get home.
Enjoy today and make sure you do something every single day that benefits our earth. And go watch the movie Earth, it comes out today April 22 in theatres. I’m sooo excited for it =).
Beauty also does its part when it comes to helping our earth. There are a ton of natural brands out there that you can buy amazing products from. My top 10 fav are:
Bare Essentials (Ofcourse)
Also pick up the book called, The Green Book. It’s such an easy read, you pick up many tips on being eco-friendly, and it’s really enjoyable. I loved it.
Stand up to whatever skin type you might have. The product you wash your face with is very important. Every ones skin differs; therefore not everyone can use the same product. The company Sabon, which means soap in Hebrew, is a company that offer natural based products for the home and body especially. It has everything your body can benefit from like, hand made natural bars of soap, liquid soaps, body exfoliaters, a top of face products, lotions, and so much more. The great thing about Sabon is that they appreciate all skin types. For now let’s focus on their facial washes.
For Normal/Dry Skin: Try Sabon’s Aloe Vera Facial Wash. It’s hypo-allergenic; making it great for people with sensitive skin.
For Combination skin: Use the Jojoba facial wash. You’ll see a difference.
For Oily skin: Use the Sea Weed facial wash. You won’t have to battle oil and shine after this product.
I personally have really oily skin in the summer. After I started using the sea weed I noticed a difference quickly. They’re only $11 and for how well they work, I’d say that’s a major deal.
Visit sabonnyc.com for store locations near you or order on-line.
Another must have for either combination or oily skin are clean&clear’s oil absorbing sheets. Whenever you feel your skin getting oily or shiny you just blot the little sheet and problem solved. The best part about it, other than getting rid of the oil, is that you won’t mess up your makeup. Only about $5 and you can find it at any pharmacy or Target.
This is the makeup every girl should own. It’s called Bare Minerals. A lot of you guys have probably heard of it already. I have never been let down by it. It’s extremely easy to apply and feels like you have nothing on. Not only that, but it looks so natural on your skin. You look as if you have flawless skin every time you use it, even when you don’t. When you buy what’s called the starter kit, you get all the essentials including all the brushes you need. The kit also includes a DVD that shows you step by step how to do everything. It’s easy to follow. In no time you’ll be a pro. (I’ve had days where I have to be out of the house in 5 minutes and I’m so good at putting the bare minerals on now that I can literally do it in like 2 minutes if I have too.)
I have by bad skin days, (sometimes weeks) but bare minerals hides it from the rest of the world. No one can ever call you cake face when you use bare minerals, because all you need is a small amount each time you use it. This natural makeup gives you a beautiful glow everyday. I’ve been using it for a year and I swear by it. I love practically all makeup, but this is by far my favorite and hopefully it’ll become your favorite too =). Give it a try and I promise you’ll be hooked.
(Bare Minerals is also great for people with sensitive skin and who normally break out with the use of makeup.)
I’m so so sorry guys that I haven’t posted anything all weekend. It’s been hectic. But very soon I’ll be bringing you guys my secret weapon in makeup. I absolutely love it and can’t live without it. I’ve been using it for a year =).
