Become Cleansed and Energized With These Cruelty-Free Skincare Products

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Confession: I’m not much for the gym on a day-to-day basis. More often than not, my intentions to complete a workout have fallen flat before I’ve even stepped towards my sneakers! That being said, I do get myself up and out for the occasional exercise–and when I do, I like to be ready for the aftermath. Post-workout is also usually pre-workday for me, which means that I’ll be refreshed, sweaty, and not even remotely presentable. So what’s a girl to do? Turns out, YUNI has the answer!

Travel To The Tropics With Vegan Sunscreen Products

Beauty Brite Disclosure

We all know that sunscreen is important, and we also all know that the modern environment’s pollutants have made pure, trustworthy, and effective products seem like an impossibly distant myth. But there is hope—and its name is Sun Bum!

Discover Quality Vegan Makeup

Discover Quality Vegan Makeup

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When it comes to all-natural and vegan makeup lines, I’ve discovered a common idea that they are not as high-quality as other brands. I personally cannot tell if that is true in most cases, but I do know that it is false for at least some of them: Pacifica, BOOM! By Cindy Joseph (be sure to read my article about that makeup and skincare line), and the star of today’s article: Mineral Fusion!

Holiday Vegan Nail Lacquers: Add Some Shimmer To The Season

SpaRitual’s Holiday Vegan Nail Lacquers & Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat


Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s that time of year again: red lips and dark nail polishes abound. Whether we mean to or not, most of us tend to get stuck in some holiday beauty ruts–but it’s easy to change that! This Christmas and New Year’s, go for a different kind of holiday fun (at least on your nails): soft pale glitters. And we’ve got the perfect ones from SpaRitual: vegan, subtle, and–when combined with SpaRitual’s new Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat–able to be removed more easily than any of your typical polishes! Just one layer of Unveil manages to lift those otherwise-intractable glitters from your nails without any nail polish remover (and without any need to rub your fingers raw).

Letters From Paris: Introspection and Mystery in the City of Love

Letters From Paris: Introspection and Mystery in the City of Love

Letters From Paris by Juliet Blackwell

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I first saw the book Letters from Paris, I was not incredibly excited. The book’s cover is beautiful, and it is written by bestselling author Juliet Blackwell, but the word ‘Paris’ instantly made me apprehensive. After all, there are many books about Paris that involve a woman’s self-discovery (and romance) whilst visiting the French city; what would make this one different?

Only You: A Summery Romance

 

Only You: A Summery Romance

Only You by Denise Grover Swank

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I admit it; I love romance novels. Sound the alarms! After all, romance novels are not usually listed among the world’s most esteemed pieces of literature (even though they can tell us a lot about different cultures’ romantic ideals), and several of them certainly do lack quality writing or unique plot elements. But I love them anyway, whether they’re historical Westerns or simplistic contemporary novels–and I’m certainly not the only one who does–so I was thrilled to receive an Advance Reading Copy of Denise Grover Swank’s new book Only You as a reviewer!… [read more]

I didn’t know much about ULTA Beauty before reviewing this makeup set; I’m usually more of a Sephora person. But, I was still very pleased with this opportunity to try some of ULTA Beauty’s products out for myself (especially in a kit that included makeup for the entire face!) so I approached my review with vim and vigor!

I’m a fan of cruelty-free products–and even more of a fan if they’re also vegan–so I was pretty excited to try some products from BOOM! by Cindy Joseph. This excitement motivated me to do a little preemptive research into the brand (aka clicking through the BOOM website), and my excitement only increased. Cindy Joseph places an enormous emphasis on women’s “natural beauty”, and has created a line of products that specifically focus on enhancing your individual features.

Summer is certainly some people’s favorite season; after all, it has parties, sunlight, poolside lounging–what’s not to love? However, regrettably–and somewhat ironically–the summer is also a time when your hair and skin can take a bit of a beating. Here are four products that I’ve reviewed, just for you, to help keep those summer woes at bay!

A Beauty Oil For Beginners

A Beauty Oil For Beginners - Josie Maran Argan Oil Light

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When it comes to any oils–including the automotive sort–I’m a bit of an amateur, and beauty oils are a different category altogether. When I first learned that facial oils were the ‘new thing’, I was just as confused as every other average girl. Wasn’t oily skin and hair the bane of our existence? I had also never used a single Josie Maran product in my life and didn’t know anyone else who used it either, so I approached Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Light with a bit of trepidation –trepidation that was quickly removed!
