Clean Beauty


Recently, my friend Marysia Reeves of Marysia Swim tapped me to curate a Clean Beauty Gift Box for some upcoming out-of-town guests.  She was one of my first friends to jump on the Green Beauty bandwagon, and she and I can gab for hours about the elements of a healthy lifestyle, so when she asked for my help, I was so excited!  Here are the Clean beauty items that we decided Marysia’s friends needed in their lives:

  1. Earth Tu Face Skin Stick: Put this stick in your bag and you’ll find yourself reaching for it constantly.  This multi-use salve is perfect for chapped lips, a dull complexion, dry cuticles, rashes, you name it.  Olive oil and beeswax protect, heal and moisturize, and essential oils like vetiver, lavender and geranium not only soothe inflammation, they provide some serious aromatherapy.
  2. May Lindstrom The Honey Mud: A blend of Raw Honey, White Halloysite Clay and plant-based oils create a silky, pudding-like treat that decongests pores while infusing skin with moisture.  Apply as a mask for a gentle, hydrating skin detox, or add water for a milky cleansing experience.  Your skin and your senses will be left soft and calm.
  3. Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30: This is a totally natural, broad spectrum SPF that thinks it’s a day cream and acts like a lotion.  Active herbal extracts, plant-based oils and non-nano zinc oxide treat, moisturize and protect skin without ever leaving it feeling greasy or sticky.  Makeup slides right on over this sunscreen, making it perfect for both work and play.
  4. RMS Beauty The Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipe: These biodegradable wipes soaked in 100% raw, unrefined coconut oil will save your skin on a late night.  High levels of lauric acid make coconut oil anti fungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial, and its natural antioxidants protect skin from free radicals and premature aging.  These hydrating wipes are perfect for removing makeup and a must-have when traveling.
  5. Shiva Rose Rosewood Vanilla Candle: Finally, a natural candle that is beautiful enough to show off on the coffee table.  Free of synthetics, this handcrafted candle is made of pure coconut wax, essential oils and a lead-free cotton wick, and it smells equal parts ethereal and earthy.  Shiva Rose can do no wrong.
  6. RMS Nail Polish: The 5- Free Nail Polishes come in the most beautiful, on-trend colors. The formula goes on smoothly, dries in a flash and lasts forever! I also love that 5-Free Nail Polishes are made to match the brand’s Lip Polishes and Lip 2 Cheeks.
