Beauty Brand Spotlight: The Raw Spa

Beauty Brand Spotlight: The Raw Spa

If  I had to describe today’s featured brand in just a few words, those words would be: fresh, moisturizing, and delicious (even though the products aren’t meant for human or animal consumption). I’m talking about The Raw Spa, a range of nourishing bath, body, and shower products.  I used and adored four of these products and would recommend any of them in a heartbeat.  In fact, they are insanely perfect for winterizing the skin and keeping it from looking and feeling dull and dry. Both the Cleopatra and Selene Exfoliant...

I try not to switch up my skin care too often because I don’t want to freak out my face (I’m sure you feel me), but I recently received some Kari Gran products from The Choosy Chick, one of my very favorite green beauty resources.  By the way, I’m going to devote an entire post to The Choosy Chick within the next few weeks.

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

It always makes me happy when more natural beauty brands hit mainstream stores.  Obviously, I like it because it makes the products easier for me to get without having to make a special shopping trip or online order. However, what really makes me so giddy about it is that it gives other people the opportunity to try a safer brand that they might not have purchased otherwise and hopefully paves the way for other non-toxic brands to enter these stores as well. Well, I am really pleased to announce that one of  my longtime favorite brands,...
