I use the 100% pure aqua boost hydrating mask when my skin is feeling dry.

2017 Life/Blog Changes

Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I’ve made a list of goals just like everyone else in this world, and I’ve been purchasing more and more things lately related to that goal.

The goal is to switch over to green beauty products in 2017.

The #1 reason I want to switch to green beauty products is because when I switched to cruelty free makeup I was introduced to green beauty products. I never knew that those products existed without chemicals, and at first I wasn’t interested at all. But then around September 2016 I then realized that my skin didn’t feel the same, and my skin felt itchy and irritated by the products I was putting on it. That’s when I was introduced to Laura’s Natural Life on YouTube, and The Organic Bunny blog. I am really interested in making my skin feel good again, and that’s why I want to switch some of my products to green beauty.

The 2nd thing that I want to bring up is that while I will be switching a lot of my products to green beauty, it won’t all be at once. I want to continue using the eyeshadows that I have, because honestly I only wear them for certain occasions and I don’t want to throw them out just yet. But from now on, if I do need to buy certain makeup products because I’m out of it then I will buy green beauty products.

5 Things I’ve Learned My First Year Going Cruelty Free

At this time last year I was researching makeup brands, and finding out which were cruelty free. Here are five things that I learned about going cruelty free.

  • The first thing I learned was that it was difficult to find my holy grail cruelty free products. Mascara was one of the most difficult things to find, since I was obsessed with Covergirl’s orange lash blast mascara. I eventually found my holy grail which is Pacifica’s Dream Big mascara. I guess what I want to say is that it is a lot of trial error in switching to cruelty free makeup products.

  • Shop at TJMaxx for cruelty free brands. I bought Crystal deodorant, and Jason shampoo for a reasonable price at TJMaxx. I also found this gem (pictured) at TJMaxx, I only wish it was a larger container, since it made me feel like I traveled to Hawaii.

  • The brand E.L.F became my best friend. I really liked the eyeliner, and HD translucent powder (pictured). I also love E.L.F brushes. They are soft and affordable, I think the most expensive one is $3. Like are you kidding!

  • Buy samples or travel size makeup products. I bought the Vapour sample kit which was about $17 with shipping, but I got a $10 promo code, and I figured out which product I wanted to buy full size. You should definitely switch to cruelty free products slowly, and I think buying samples or travel size makes it easy because you can decide which product you like the most.

  • I became more aware of the ingredients in the products. I started watching Laura’s Natural Life on YouTube, and she made me aware of more green products that I should be using. Towards the end of the year I found out about The Organic Bunny, and I absolutely love her blog. For the new year I will be switching to more green makeup products. I will upload a blog post about why I am switching to green products later.

Please tell me what you think, and let me know what your experience has been since switching to cruelty free makeup products.

Thanks Beauties!

Review of Juicy Beauty Face Primer & Cleansing Milk

Hey everyone! I’ve been wanting to do a review on these two Juice Beauty products for awhile. I have been using them for about three months. These were the first two products I ever purchased from Juice Beauty.

First off, I didn’t really have an immediate impression about these products, which is why I didn’t review them sooner. I’ll start with the primer. I like that it doesn’t feel rough on my skin. I was using the NYX  Poreless primer, and it made my skin feel irritated. I like that the Juice Beauty primer felt nice, and clean on my skin. My makeup did smudge throughout the day with the Juice Beauty primer, especially on my t-zone, which is where I am oily the most. To be completely honest I don’t think I would repurchase this product.

 

Next, time to review the Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. I have been using this to remove my makeup, and it does the job. I did notice however, that I had to rub coconut oil on my eyelids if I wanted to get my eye makeup off. I think the cleansing milk is good to take off face makeup, but not eye makeup. I don’t think this is the best cleansing remover, but it did make my skin soft. It did irritate my eyes, which is why I would rather use coconut oil.

What are your opinions on these products?
