Clean Living All Stars of 2016
I hope that your New Year is off to an excellent start, and I look forward to helping you on your clean living journey and possibly to making it easier for you to stick to some of your resolutions. In addition to all of the green beauty and healthy living tips, you can expect to see even more home care posts this year as well as posts about the things that I use on my little ones.
But first, here is a look back at my all-stars from 2016- basically, the best of all the favorites that I shared with you during the year. I continue to use each and every one of these things today and have repurchased almost all of them at least once. I’ve already reviewed nearly all of these things on the blog before, so I linked the reviews if you are looking for in-depth reviews and explanations regarding what makes them so fabulous.
Enjoy & thank you for your continued support. It means so much to me!
The closest green version I’ve found to the MAC concealer that I used to think I couldn’t live without back in the day.
My go-to every day blush.
This provides excellent coverage for those days when I truly need it.
Hands down, my favorite natural mascara. I never want to be without it!
You’ll want these in every shade.
Even though this kit is intended for more dramatic looks, I actually find many of the colors wearable for the day time, and in fact, I probably used the kit almost every single day last year!
This gives me a glowing, healthy look but in a subtle way.
Step one of my nightly cleansing routine. It has become my very favorite oil.
This product is pure heaven and such a treat. My skin absolutely loves it!
I use this mist every day to keep my skin clear and even.
This serum also keeps my skin really balanced, and the price is definitely right considering how expensive serums can be.
This is probably my favorite sunscreen, and it provides an excellent base for my makeup.
Pricey as can be, but worth the splurge in my opinion. Even Gwyneth Paltrow claims to use it!
The best nontoxic shampoo I’ve used to date. It makes my scalp totally balanced, so I have to wash less often.
Health & Fitness
I simply cannot describe how amazing Lotus Wei is in one sentence. You just have to experience it for yourself.
Collagen in powder form is a million times easier to swallow than those giant horse pills, and I love how I can add it to smoothies, water, or even my coffee.
Joy’s book has fantastic recipes, and they were so helpful to me this year as I transitioned to a plant-based diet.
My tried and true workout for keeping my muscles long and lean.
Since I discovered these, I will never buy dryer sheets again.
And since I got these, I have not purchased a single roll of paper towels!
Food & Drink
My favorite tea- and I am in desperate need of some more.
These are the perfect, easy, convenient snacks! I also like the Trader Joe’s version.
