What mom really wants: green beauty & uber natural skincare
Mother's Day falls on a Sunday this year (May 12th if you didn't know), which is a perfect day for making her a breakfast in bed or getting the fam together for brunch. What's more important than her well being, health, and happiness? I'm no fan of hallmark holidays, but I love using Mother's Day as an excuse to celebrate her. I've done the charm bracelet thing. She's had enough bad facials never to return to that salon I get her gift cards at each year. I know too much about pesticides to get her conventionally grown roses. So, I rounded up my top 5 decadent, luxurious, and uber natural skincare products I know she'll love. What's more, when you spend $100 in May, you can get one of these for free! Wanna know which one? Make sure you're on our list and follow us on instagram.
The CC cream is great for medium coverage. It feels feather soft and leaves your skin looking fresh and moisturized. Its made with light diffusing minerals and aloe vera juice, which is a wonderful skin hydrator. The CC cream can be used as primer if you like more coverage. It also contains 10% zinc oxide which offers some natural sun protection.
This new vegan serum is a concentrated, restorative formula rich in vitamins, proteins and minerals for the face. Composed of active ingredients such as seabuckthorn, Ontario hemp seed and frankincense oil, this is a heavy hitter for skin renewal. It goes on light and absorbs quickly (even for an oil). We like to use it as a moisturizer when skin is feeling dry or layer it under a cream moisturizer for extra hydration.
Face Glow creates a lovely shimmer when applied to your skin. This face illuminator and highlighter infused with mineral mica helps to redirect light to blur imperfections, and even-out your skin tone which results in a natural, effortless look.
Though absolutely lovely as a moisturizer, it is particularly wonderful when used as a makeup primer and illuminator (alone, under or over foundation).
Clear impurities and remove your makeup gracefully with this fluffy unscented cream cleanser. This blissfully soothing formulation features super-antioxidant Vinanza Oxifend. Nutrient-rich avocado oil and marigold bloom gently yet effectively cleanse, freshen and soften your visage.
Elate Crème Lipsticks keep your lips supple with shea and mango butter, and have a lovely natural scent thanks to organic vanilla essential oil. We love Kink for mom because its wearable for day or night. Kink is a medium brown with rose undertones. Its a great introduction to a natural lipstick.
