Pacific Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20

It’s that time of year… When it comes to tinted moisturizer + SPF, there is a handful of Clean* choices out there.  To me, most of them seem more like “beach day” sunscreens; they just feel a little too thick and heavy for daily use, especially when applied over other skincare products and under makeup.

A Green Man is a Good Man

I know this Ryan Gosling joke is played out (except that it’s not, I still laugh every time). Lately, so many friends, family members and readers have been asking me about Clean products for men.  My personal guinea pig, my husband, is no metrosexual.  He is a man’s man; he’s never had an arsenal of […]

One Last Word on Sunscreen Spray

Wow!  I received an overwhelming amount of interest on my sunscreen spray post last week.  With all the side-conversations happening, I thought I should let the rest of the readers in on this accidental forum. I was chatting with my friend Dara of Ayla Beauty, and she brought up a really good point – something […]

Time to Toss the Sunscreen Spray

In case you’ve been in summer mode and haven’t caught the news lately, listen up.  Consumer Reports recently advised against using spray sunscreens on children.  The FDA has been “investigating” the safety of sunscreen sprays since 2011, but The EWG has been warning us of the dangers of spray sunscreens for years and years.  They […]

Review: Beautycounter, Part II

Yesterday, I covered my top six favorite Beautycounter products.  I could have easily made a top-ten list; they are that good.  Beautycounter is also a totally transparent Green Beauty company; no secret ingredients, no suspicious origins.  I really love their “Never List”.  Print it out and carry it in your wallet so you never have to […]
