As a blogger, I’m constantly testing beauty products, searching for the best ones to share with you. But even in the midst of ongoing testing, there are certain products I come back to again and again. These natural beauty products are so good, I use them on a daily basis!
This is my green beauty regimen (updated August 2018) →
In the morning, I cleanse with the True Botanicals Hydrating Cleanser. I follow up with the COQ-10 Toner from Indie Lee and three drops of the Pure Radiance Oil from True Botanicals. I wear zinc oxide sunscreen every day, no matter what. I’m on my third bottle of Ursa Major’s Daily Defense Lotion SPF18. My skin is prone to hyperpigmentation, and this stuff has protected my skin better than other sunscreens with significantly higher SPFs. It also doesn’t feel heavy in the midst of a humid Toronto summer.
For my body, I wash with Dr. Bronner’s iconic Castile Soap—the unscented baby version in the light blue bottle. I moisturize with jojoba oil from Desert Essence. For deodorant, it’s all about Ursa Major’s Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant.
When I’m feeling a bit fancy, I’ll switch out my mineral foundation and tinted balm for the Nu Evolution Complete Coverage Foundation and the twist-up Precision Eye Pencil from Juice Beauty in a warm brown shade. On my lips I wear Nu Evolution’s Sassy lipstick with their gloss in Bling on top. The gloss, in particular, is a favorite. It’s a luminizer for lips, adding dimension and softness.
In the evening, MyChelle’s Micellar Water and a plain cotton round removes my makeup. I follow up with a quick wash with the True Botanicals Hydrating Cleanser.
Then the fun begins. I apply True Botanicals’ Cellular Repair Serum with targeted mix-ins; I alternate between the Vitamin C Booster and the Antioxidant Booster. I then lock it all in with a thin layer of the Pure Radiance Oil, RENEW.
For perfume, I use two drops of Jasmine Oil on my wrists and neck. The scent is seductive and intensely feminine, but as a pure essential oil it also supports my mood, hormone balance, and resilience to stress.
