Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce my secret for sun kissed, bronzed summer skin... the @physiciansformula Butter Bronzer in “Deep Bronzer.” 👏🏾 ☀️ To be quite honest, I never thought I needed bronzer since I always had naturally dark skin. However, after playing around with this beauty, I’ve realized a subtle bronzer only enhances my natural tan. I really don’t apply much, mostly just in my creases and cheek bones with my fingertips, yet the result is STUNNING. (Check my previous Summer #motd for proof.) If you are of a lighter skin tone, I can even see this being effective for contouring. All in all, I can’t say anything bad about this bronzer... it’s borderline perfect. Oh, and it’s also free of parabens, gluten, and oil as well as hypoallergenic and cruelty free. Not bad for a $15.00 green beauty bronzer. 💁🏽‍♀️🌿💗 #nurturingbeauty #physiciansformula

One of my favorite forms of self-care definitely has to be polishing my nails. There is something so therapeutic about each brushstroke of color that hits my nails. 💅🏽 • Even before I fully transitioned into Green Beauty, @pacificabeauty nail polish was a fave of mine. It always applied very smoothly and has an average wear time of a week and a half. (W/out base & top coat) Even to this day as a green beauty blogger, @pacificabeauty nail polish is one that I repeatedly reach for when I am doing an at home mani or pedi. They have a 7-free nail polish formula that is 100% vegan & cruelty free. Also, their shades are just too pretty! • I have the shade “Dark Desert Highway” on most of my nails and “Palm Springs” on my ring finger...you know to be extra 💁🏽‍♀️. What is your fave green beauty nail polish? 💗 #nurturingbeauty #pacificabeauty

Happy Friday lovely people! ❤️ Recently, I’ve been on the hunt to find more natural, green beauty products at @ultabeauty and stumbled on these body washes by @vitabath. I’ve only used the “Pomegranate & Blood Orange” scent so far...but dam, these are good. 👌🏽 First off, they smell AMAZING. Like if they made a perfume, I’d be all over it. It has bold notes of citrus without being overpowering. 🍊💗 Second, they are actually pretty moisturizing. In the summer my skin, as most individuals, is pretty dry and in desperate need of some hydration. After I take a shower with this and dry off, I don’t find my skin to be screaming for lotion immediately after. ☠️ Lastly, these beauties are free of parabans, dyes, propylene, phthalate, glycol, and is not tested on animals. Honestly, these body washes have been a win-win in my book. I’ll let you know my thoughts on the “Heavenly Coconut Cream” scent. Stay cool my friends! ✌🏽💗 #nurturingbeauty #vitabath

Cheesin pretty hard because this @physiciansformula The Healthy Lip Velvet in “Red-storative Effects” is too perfect for the summer time. All it takes is one swipe and BOOM...instant pick me up. I mean, with the weather being all crazy in So Cal, I’m not trying to walk out the door with a full face of makeup. #lowmatinence #cleanbeautybabe 💁🏽‍♀️💄☀️

I always get asked what my favorite green beauty mask is and this one from @sheamoisture is at the top of my list! You can tell how much use I’ve gotten out of it by how beat up the container is! 🙈🖤 This little beauty has aided me tremendously in reducing the amount of blackheads on my face. I’ve also noticed that it leaves my skin much softer and smoother. Since it contains African Black Soap, a more potent acne solution, I would recommend only applying this to the more oily parts of your face in 4-5 day increments. Otherwise, you might dry out your less oily sections. At only $12.99 for 4oz, (this will last you FOREVER) this mask is also made without Parabans, Phthalates, DEA, Petroleum, Formaldehyde, Mineral Oil, and Propylene. Last but not least, it’s cruelty-free! 🖤 What green beauty mask has worked wonders for your skin? I’d love to get some recommendations! 🖤 #nurturingbeauty #sheamoisture

Obsessed with these red shades! ❤️💄 If you couldn’t already tell, my go to summer #motd consists of a bold red lip and a whole lot of bronze.✨ I have found these 3 to be the most flattering for my darker skin tone as they have warmer undertones. What is your go to summer #motd? Swatches: (Top to Bottom) 1.) @physiciansformula The Healthy Lip in “Red-storative Effects” 2.) @sheamoisture Shea Butter Lipstick in “Red Rose” 3.) @tartecosmetics Quick Dry Matte Liquid Lip Paint in “Xoxo” #nurturingbeauty #greenbeauty

I’m a happy gal when the temperature rises. My summer plans include soaking up some sunshine, hanging with loved ones, and drinking tons of @gtskombucha kombucha. Their “Watermelon Wonder” is bomb.com. What are your plans this summer? ☀️💗 #nurturingbeauty #summer2018

Happy Monday beautiful peeps! As much as I talk about switching to cleaner and greener beauty products, I also believe it’s important to consider what you are putting in your body. @avieforlife’s “ultramicronized turmeric curcumin” supplement supports my immune system as well as provides it with antioxidants to keep it at its best. Also, it’s the perfect compliment to my morning matcha! 💁🏽‍♀️💗🍵 #nurturingbeauty #avienaturals

Celebrating the official start to summer with this beautiful nail polish by @b_livinn in the shade “What”. It’s my ideal summer neutral, a warm-toned Pink with subtle hints of gold shimmer. Cruelty-free, Vegan, Paraban-Free & 5-Free...pretty sure I will have this on repeat this summer. Stay cool Peeps! 💁🏽‍♀️☀️ #nurturingbeauty #blivinn

Happy Monday peeps! Hope you all had an amazing start to your week! Today I wanted to share my latest obsession that is @typeadeodorant! I have finally found a deodorant that is non-toxic and holds up through my gym sweat sessions. Also, there is no residue left on my clothes or skin! (No dreaded white marks on black clothes 💁🏽‍♀️) This deodorant has honestly checked off every box on my checklist and I wish I would have known about it sooner. What makes it so amazing: • 100% non-toxic formula that is aluminum free and made with natural actives. • Sweat-activated technology ensures long lasting odor and wetness protection. • Their “Visionary” scent is AMAZING. Perfect citrus scent. (For those sensitive to fragrance, they also have an unscented version.) All and all, there is really no con to this product...except that it’s not in your possession! 💗🌿 #nurturingbeauty #typeadeodorant

In LOVE with my new body spray from @lovegoodchemistry in “Gardenia Palm”! 💗 it’s the perfect tropical summer scent without being too sweet or too musky. Just a spritz on my wrists and the back of my neck is enough to last me a while. This body spray is made with essential oils and is available at your local @target for only $9.99 a bottle! I’m not kidding when I say Target is stepping up their natural beauty game! It’s become my go to place for affordable green beauty! 💗🌿 #nurturingbeauty #targetdoesitagain #goodchemistry

Happy Monday peeps! Hope everyone is having a great start to their week! I’ve been running a couple errands and using these @burtsbees rejuvenating eye masks to recover from an adventurous weekend! Formulated with rose-hip seed extract and jojoba oil, they reinvigorate the delicate skin in the eye area. What’s even better is what they are formulated without: Parabans, phthalates, SLS, or petrolatum. My trick is to stick them in the fridge for about an hour and then apply to my eyes. Aside from nourishing my under eye area, the cooling sensation also acts as a natural de-puffer. For $3.00 each, they are a more budget-friendly option for non-toxic under eye treatments. 💗🌿 #nurturingbeauty #burtsbees

Happy Tuesday! 💗 I’ve recently received a couple questions regarding my favorite green beauty products and I’ve decided to share my collection of @physiciansformula The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick. The formula on these are amazing! Packed with with avocado oil, vitamins A & E, hyaluronic acid, and anti-aging peptides, they not only provide gorgeous color but also improve the health of your lips overtime. Why I love them: • They have a “velvet” matte finish, which is a lot less drying than traditional matte formulas. • They are very pigmented! I can use one dip to coat both lips. • They are hypo-allergenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and cruelty free. • They have shades for a variety of skin tones. • Lastly, at a price of $7.95 these are a STEAL! Such a great price for the quality you are getting. •Swatches• (Top to Bottom) - Bare with Me - Coral Minerals - Dose of Rose - Tu-Lip Treatment - Red-storative Effects - Nut-ritious #nurturingbeauty #physiciansformula
