Celebrating Earth Day with Mother Nature Approved Beauty Products
Earth Day is coming up here shortly on Friday, April 22nd.
I remember when I was in elementary and middle school, we would all either plant a seed in the ground or a small tree somewhere. Since I graduated high school, I’ve entered the Air Force and have lived in England, Germany, Texas and now I’m stationed back in my hometown in good ole’ Florida. It’s great now that I can see trees that I planted at the schools 20+ years later! I can say, “I did that!”
I think in the last 10+ years, the world has been a little more earth friendly and health conscious. We recycle way more than we did in the past. While I was stationed in Germany for 4 years, we recycled EVERYTHING! Do you know how hard it was to retrain a child on garage disposal? They are serious when it comes to recycling. We’re not that strict here in the states, but there are other ways that the companies here are taking part in our Earths future.
I’m going to talk about two beauty products that I’ve been using that have been doing their part: Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk and Suki Concentrated Clarifying Toner.
I’ll start off with the Cleansing Milk by Juice Beauty since I use this in the mornings and evenings for a fresh clean face. It’s a love/hate relationship that I have with new products though because you never know what the products are going to do to your skin…dry it out, have a bad reaction or…actually produce the results that it says it’s intended to do.
I’ve started to love the milky cleansers because they do an awesome job at removing full on face of makeup to include my waterproof mascara. I know you know what I mean when I say I product is A-MA-ZING when it can take off your waterproof mascara without you scrubbing your eyelashes off! It’s that gentle yet effective.
I’ve used this with just my hands and also with my FOREO Luna Mini 2, I love how it just melts away my makeup and keeps my skin moisturized afterwards.
My daughter has also been using this because I like to see how products affect different skin types. Right now I have dry to normal skin because I just started Accutane again and she has combination to oily skin. She said she loves it for the same reasons that I love it and that is because it takes off all of our products and worldly impurities that our skin come in contact with on the daily and that it also keeps her face moist and doesn’t dry it out or her skin doesn’t tighten up afterwards.
Now after I cleanse my skin…I like to use a toner just to make sure I balance out my skins phd.
I’ve used several different toners and when I received the Suki toner, I kinda gave it a side eye because of the coloring…
This is the first time that I’ve used a non-clear colored toner but I actually love it. The nozzle spritzes the toner in a perfect mist to cover your whole face. I can comfortable say that it will cover your whole face because my head is pretty big…I mean, I do have a pretty big forehead and I’m damn proud of it. I did however, try it on my daughter so I can see it spray for myself, because when I spray it on myself, I have to close my eyes so I get it everywhere to include my eye lids.
When I say it’s the perfect mist, you know how some facial sprays can drench your face and the product starts to drip off your face? The Suki toner gets just the right amount of product and doesn’t waste any!
I apply this after I cleanse my face, before I apply my makeup, to set my makeup after I apply it and then as needed throughout the day for a refresher.
This toner is safe for sensitive skin and made for combo to oily skin.
