Transparency is the new trend; throughout modern society, people are endeavoring to learn more about what they’re eating, what they’re wearing (did you know that, according to a recent mindbodygreen article, one fast-fashion T-shirt “uses 700 gallons of water” to be made?!), and where their trash is going (check out The Story of Stuff for more on that subject). The beauty world is also following this trend by heading down the vegan and cruelty-free road. While “vegan” does not necessarily mean perfect, its “cruelty-free” partner is usually the tagline that actually sells me on a product.

Items That Are Great For Traveling

Beauty Brite Disclosure
With it being full blown traveling season I know lots of people are either headed out for spring break or getting ready for summer vacations. I don’t know about you, but when I travel I like to have things that make me feel comfortable and make it convenient to travel. I know sometimes weather in other places can take a huge toll on my skin and not having to use travel samples from hotels and having my own personal items can keep my skin from flaring up and breaking out.

Three Ways To Boost Your Beauty Quotient

Three Ways To Boost Your Beauty Quotient-AHAVA-Philip B-Jojoba Co Australia

Beauty Brite DisclosureMy skin, well, sometimes we have a love/hate relationship. My hands especially tend to be dry all the time due to the constant hand washing that I put them through during cleaning, meal prep and just general trying to avoid the spread of germs. And then there’s my face. I’ve been noticing some dry spots developing occasionally over the last year or so. They’re not bad, just a bit of an annoyance. And my long hair has been dry, too. I really think it’s because I don’t drink enough water, but I’m glad to have some beauty products to help out with these issues, as well.

Lately, I’ve been using three really awesome beauty products that are helping me like what I see when I look in the mirror. AHAVA, The Jojoba Company Australia, and Philip B® are most definitely on my “good product” list for the benefits I’ve been enjoying due to using them…. [read more]

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!

Skin Care For Every Lifestyle

Skin Care For Every Lifestyle - True Results Retinol Skin Care and ELEWA Holistic Skin Care

Beauty Brite DisclosureSkin care is a topic that I find myself becoming more interested in all the time, now that I’m in my forties. I still enjoy relatively clear, smooth skin. But, I do have some slight sun damage on my cheeks from past sunburns and have noticed the skin (mostly around my eyes) getting a little less elastic.

I’m not really picky about whether I try skin care lines that are all natural or whether they are developed with some chemical ingredients. I know some women do have definite preferences when it comes to the ingredients in their skin care, though. Here, for your consideration, I am offering up my experiences with two skin care lines I have recently given a test drive, True Results Retinol Active and ELEWA Natural.

Get More from Your Cleansing Routine

Get more from your cleansing routine 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Growing up I never gave too much thought to the type of cleanser I used on my face. As long as my face was clean I was happy. However, as I got older I realized I needed more than clean skin. I wanted a product that refreshed, hydrated, and treated my skin to some beneficial ingredients.  I now have it all with Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

 

Founded in New Zealand, Snowberry is all about creating premium natural anti-aging skincare. Their products are designed to combat the effects of free radicals, dehydration, and discoloration, just to name of a few. Perhaps this is why they won the 2011 Discover Beauty Award at Cosmoprof USA.

One of my favorite aspects of the Snowberry skincare line is the fact their products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors, alcohols, or petrochemicals. Every product is also dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals. Snowberry is also the first skincare company in New Zealand to receive the carboNZeroCert™ certification. This means they have a low carbon footprint and strive to be a more environmentally sustainable company.

After reading about Snowberry, I was excited to try their Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Toner

When you have sensitive, dry skin like I do, you want a cleanser that is gentle and doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. The Gentle Cleanse & Tone does exactly what its name says, cleanses and tones.

This is thanks to ingredients like:

  • Plant saponins from the nut of the soap tree
  • Kiwi fruit, kumquat and green pea protein extracts
  • Naturally humectant vegetable glycerin, vitamin E and oil from the Andiroba tree nut

Snowberry Gentle Remineralising Toner Swatch

Each time I use the Gentle Cleanse & Tone my skin always feels hydrated, replenished, and nice and smooth. I never have to worry about any skin irritation or that dry, tight sensation some cleansers cause.

 

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser

I also tested out the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser. Known as “the supernatural cleanser and makeup remover,” by Snowberry insiders, this cleanser uses highly concentrated oils to cleanse and re-hydrate skin.

The cleanser features a blend of:

  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Indian neem oil
  • Inca Inchi oil
  • Lingonberry oil
  • Coenzyme Q10

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser Swatch

Even though the Instant Deep Cleanser is formulated with oils, it can be used on all skin types. It worked well on my dry skin. I only need a few pumps to remove all my makeup and get my skin nice and clean. But what I love most is how my skin feels after I use the product; soft and smooth. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes, which is especially nice when I need to remove my eye makeup.

After using the Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and the Instant Deep Cleanser, my skin is getting more from my cleansing routine. It no longer feels stripped of moisture or dulled after cleansing. Instead, my skin is soft and smooth and has a nice healthy glow.
