We Tried Three Natural Skincare Lines And We Think You’ll Love Them All

Three different skincare lines to help you target your problem areas

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve talked many times about my skincare woes. Unfortunately, I am a literal oil slick and I have hormonal acne. Any slight mishap in the ingredients in my skin care routine and I have painful, red cysts popping up. Frequently, I look for skincare lines that have natural ingredients.

Recently, I tried three different skincare lines. Most Noteworthy, each line aims to deep clean pores while also being gentle on the skin. After trial and error, I have favorites from each of the skincare lines that I like and I wanted to share them all with my fellow oily peeps.

Skin Care From Start To Finish

Skin Care From Start To Finish-Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Serum and MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Skin Care From Start To Finish

Vitamin C plays an important role in human health, and now you can get it in a serum to apply moisture and antioxidants directly to your skin. Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Oil is a quick absorbing skin serum that helps to protect our largest organ from UV-B rays and can also help with issues such as hyperpigmentation and age spots. Anti-aging beauty products are always on my radar. None of us are getting younger, but we don’t have to just go with it.

Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Regenerative Oil

Even though it’s an oil, it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking more fresh without leaving behind an oily residue. I am totally on board for this! I hate nothing more than a skin care product that I am constantly feeling like a film has been left behind that I can’t get rid of; I want it to go on and then forget about it. I like that it’s developed to work well on all skin types.

Equal By Nature Velvet Vitamin C Regenerative Oil

I have very little time to spend on a daily skin care routine. What I like about Velvet Vitamin C Oil is that I can take a few drops and just smooth it into my skin after a shower and by the time I’m dressed and ready to apply what little makeup I do wear, my face is silky smooth and easy to finish off with a little concealer, tinted lip gloss, and mascara.

Another Equal By Nature product that I’m really keep to try soon is their Sweet Plum Oil. This neat little multi-tasker is great for moisturizing skin, hair, nails, and scalp. I am always looking for easy products I can use to smooth flyaway and frizz in my hair and apply to my nails and cuticles that at times like to shred like crazy. All hair types can benefit from the moisturizing benefits!

For a boost of moisture any time, anywhere I enjoy toting MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist in my purse. It’s made with Cactus Water, Hyaluronic Acid (to aid in skin moisturization and diminish the appearance of fine lines), Citystem™ Plant Stem cells (to strengthen skin hydration barrier, stimulate natural antioxidants, and help skin appear smooth and soft), and Niacinamide (vitamin B3) to improve complexion.

MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist

What you won’t find in this cruelty-free, vegan beauty mist:

Gluten

GMO

Parabens

Petroleum

Phthalates

Silicones

Sulfates

Ureas

Artificial Fragrances

Artificial Colors

It’s really easy to pull this out anytime my face feels dry or tight and spritz a bit on my skin. It provides soothing moisture in an instant no matter how busy my day gets. It’s an ultra light spray, developed to be used whenever the need arises, either under or over makeup. You can barely feel the tiny drops landing on your skin. I don’t even have to run my hand over my face to rub it in, the droplets are so fine.

I tried to get a picture of how fine the spray is, but I really couldn’t. The closest I could get is this one. If you look really close you can see a bit of the spray coming out of the nozzle, but the mist itself is so fine, that it’s really hard to see it.

MyChelle Hyaluronic Beauty Mist

I was already a MyChelle fan from using one of their facial exfoliant products; until my teenage daughter commandeered it, that is. Now when I want to use it I have to go to her bathroom! We also recently tried MyChelle’s Incredible Pumpkin Peel and Pumpkin Renew Cream, so definitely check out our thoughts on that!

We Put This Popular Skin Care Regimen to the Test

As I age, my skincare needs change. It’s almost as though I finally find a great routine that works for me and my skin reaks havoc all over again. Hormones, stress, and even seasons play such a large part when it comes to healthy skin. So I find myself once again spending countless hours searching the internet for skin care regimen to suit my needs. The problem is, I am clueless on which products to use in conjunction with others or how to nourish my skin in a way that won’t need a change of routine a few months out. Oz Naturals, however, has catered the best skin care regiment for my skincare needs so I decided to put it to the test.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary

The beach is one of my very favorite places in the world to be. So, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to skin care products I love it when I find a quality line of lotions, bath products, and other personal care choices that not only nourish and care for my skin but also can transport me right down to the water’s edge with a breezy, tropical scent.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary - Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nubian Heritage is one of a few favorite brands when it comes to both keeping my skin looking and feeling great, as well as providing a nice variety of scents that I love. Our sense of smell is central to everything we do from preparing delicious meals to recalling nostalgic personal memories to promoting calm and relaxing atmospheric ambiance in our surroundings. It’s no wonder that companies that produce essential oils and diffusers, candles, potpourri, perfume and cologne, air fresheners, etc. are such a big business. We all use these products to invoke a response from within to find peace and calm in our lives.

Self-Care Is Totally Worth Your Time

Self-Care Is Totally Worth Your Time--Shir Organics-NaturaBrasil-Nature Lab Tokyo

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Personal care is important, not because it’s trendy but because we all are worth caring for, all of the time. In the hustle and bustle of daily life with all the exterior demands on our time and attention that being a woman entails it can be very easy to forget that. We often put everything and everyone else above ourselves in terms of importance, don’t we? Especially women, who care for everyone else — their parents, spouses, children, and friends — before giving their own needs more than a passing thought.

I’m certainly guilty of this passive and unthinking form of self-neglect at times. I mean, I apply sunscreen if I’m going to be out in the sun for long enough that I might get a sunburn. I apply lotion to my hands and arms pretty regularly. Though that’s mostly because my hands can get pretty rough from constantly washing them as I go through the average day during cleaning, meal prep, and caring for our various animals. I can’t even remember the last time I treated myself to something as simple as a hair cut, it’s probably been a year or more I’m sure.

There are a lot of different kinds of personal care products on the market to choose from. Products that address areas from skin care to hair care, internal health to physical fitness. Some are clearly better than others, but a large majority of what’s available is all very good and it can be a difficult task to weed through all of the advertising and information to make a choice about which brands to use.

The easiest area of personal care to address, I think, is taking care of one’s exterior, what others see when they look at us. That being our skin and hair. I mean, we all bathe and at least occasionally use nourishing bath products and perhaps apply body lotion afterward. These areas are where I’ve tried quite a few different products to support skin and hair care.

So, today I will be sharing the three most recent brands that I’ve been using and my thoughts on them. Since there are so many brands to choose from, it’s sometimes fun to share those that you might not find on the shelves of every pharmacy or mass merchandise retailer. Don’t you think?

And since I especially like trying new natural/organic products for personal care those will be what I share with you today. Brands you may not have heard of before like NaturaBrasil, Shira Esthetics, and NatureLab Tokyo. I hope you enjoy your introduction to these brands of skin and hair care and that you put yourself first and decide to try one (or more) of them for yourself. You deserve it! [read more]
