beauty products I've used up


skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butter: I absolutely love this stuff. It's thick and ultra moisturizing, but doesn't feel heavy at all. It's made with natural ingredients, like shea butter, coconut oil, and sunflower oil—and it's fragrance and paraben free. I had really dry skin while pregnant, so that coupled with itchy winter skin was no fun. But this product was a big hero for me during that time!

Beautycounter "Wash" Body Wash: By far my favorite body wash—and it's so safe! Soaps and shampoos were some of the big things I wanted to change in my switch to safer products because I didn't want harmful chemicals seeping into my pores when my body is heated up in the shower. (Heat  & steam cause your pores to open up!)  I always feel taken care of with Beautycounter because of all the research they do, the way their safe ingredients are sourced so carefully, and how transparent their ingredient lists are.

Colleen Rothschild Eye Cream: This is something I was using when I originally switched to safer, but I kept using it at night to use it up because Colleen Rothschild products seem to be on the safer end of the spectrum. It's the perfect consistency for an eye cream in my opinion and extremely hydrating. I didn't notice any amazing miracles, but it made my under eye area very soothed and plump! It's also one of the brand's best sellers... and all best sellers are on sale right now!

Charlotte Tilbury "The Retoucher" Conceal & Treat Pen: I didn't really feel that this product was enough to use as a concealer on it's own, so I kept it in my handbag for touchups midday. It's lightweight, doesn't have much coverage, but is brightening. Truthfully, it just wasn't amazing enough for me to consider buying it again, but it was great to have on hand throughout the day to brighten or touchup in certain areas.

Weleda Arnica Muscle Soak: Love, love this! The smell is pretty strong, but it made for an extremely relaxing bath. Weleda makes safe products with sustainable ingredients. I have loved everything I've tried from their line!

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue: Can't say how much I love this product. I reviewed it in great detail here. Someone asked how I think it compares to the Dew Skin. The Complexion Rescue is more of a gel consistency. It's so light. Dew Skin is—well, more dewy! It's a thicker product, so I would recommend it more for people with drier skin. Dew Skin, inevitably, contains safer ingredients, although the Complexion Rescue is fragrance, silicone, oil, and paraben free.

Maybelline Master Conceal: This is one of the only "unsafe" products I've kept in my makeup bag, but I have saved it for just using here and there. I just really love this concealer and didn't want to toss it before running out. I probably won't buy it again, just because I do love the touchup skin concealer pen, but just so you know—it's really good!!

Beautycounter "Hydrate" Body Lotion: The smell of this is incredibly refreshing and it feels great on the skin! Moisturizing without being heavy. Sometimes I would mix in a little of this oil in it for extra hydration at night to soothe my extremely dry skin. Oh, and yes, I would repurchase. Already have a few backups! ;)
