Sometimes, I look at my product closet, and I find a perfect, cohesive story (i.e. 5 awesome bronzers you need to try).  Other times when I look, all I can see are some amazing products that are completely unrelated – that I really want to talk about.  Today is one of those days.  Integrity Botanicals keeps adding great brands and product to their selection; I can barely keep up!  (A good problem.)  All of the products listed below are available at Integrity Botanicals, and they have a great reward points system that I’m always taking advantage of – you’d be crazy not to.

I mentioned Captain Blankenship last week, but none of my favorite retailers were carrying it yet, so here it is again!  Who doesn’t love a good beach-wave-sea-salt-spray in the summer?  Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray outshines the rest – literally.  They have taken their original Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray (which has a cult following, by the way) and added golden mica to make your waves shimmer.  And, don’t worry, you won’t look like you poured glitter in your hair; it will just softly glisten, and it works on all hair colors.  Some sea salt sprays make my hair feel overly-dry or sticky, but not this one.  The combination of aloe vera, sea salt and sea kelp extract gives me the perfect volume, hold and texture, and essential oils like palmarosa and rose geranium provide a light, beautiful natural fragrance.

W3LL PEOPLE has come out with some fantastic new products, including my new favorite, Bio Correct Concealer.  This concealer manages to do the impossible; it conceals, corrects and moisturizes the under-eye area without creasing (or, if you are like me, very minimal creasing, since everything creases on me except for air-brushed makeup).  I really love the brightening effect it imparts, and it also contains organic coffee to de-puff.  This will be your new favorite, too; it sells out quickly and often, so get it while you can!  (I wear Light.)

W3ll PEOPLE Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara now comes in three more colors: Brown, Blue and Purple.  The original True Black has a CULT following, as the unique rubber wand builds both length and volume.  The new colors are so fun for summer, and they really open up the eye and highlight your own eye color.  (Full disclosure: this mascara, like 99% of natural mascaras, smudges on me, so I cannot wear it.  Apparently, I have a smudgy, crease-y under eye area or something…)

I’ve also been loving Gressa Lip Boosts, which are essentially beautifully tinted lip balms. Castor Oil, Shea and Mango Butters and  Seabuckthorn Oil ensure moisturized lips, long after the color has worn off.  These Lip Boosts are the perfect everyday lip product, but the colors are elegant enough to wear with a fully-made-up face, too.  My favorites are Bare, Jolie and Lavish.  I’m also dying to try Gressa’s Eye Tints, which are supposed to be a smudge-proof velvety-cream….  Well, if they don’t smudge on me, they won’t smudge on anyone, we all know that by now.  Stay tuned for the verdict on that!


I’ve talked about Axiology Lipstick a few times before; I am obsessed with their formula, packaging, colors, message, everything.  Integrity Botanicals just received a new shipment, so I thought it would be a good time to highlight it before it sells out again!  The formula couldn’t be more Clean or pure.  Ingredients like avocado and mango butters moisturize and protect; this lipstick has never left my lips feeling desperately dry and the product just glides on when I apply it.  This is a lipstick-girl’s lipstick line.  Axiology’s 100% natural colors are so unique and very densely saturated, and they wear incredibly well hour after hour.  And, the beautiful packaging?  It’s ethically sourced from recycled materials in Bali.  To top it all off, Axiology is Vegan, never tests on animals and donates 6% of their profits to The Orangutan Foundation.  A few favorites are Noble, a deep pink coral, The Goodness, a pearly mauve and Philosophy, a creamy, pink-nude.
