My Favorite Cruelty Free Lip Balms

Lips balms are a staple in my makeup and skincare collection. Every night before bed, I like to put on a thick, lip balm or lip mask. My lips are always very dry, so lip balm is a must in my beauty routine. Here are top picks!

Sara Happ The Lip Slip Balm $24
1
The Lip Slip is one of my favorite balms. It is perfect for an overnight balm because it is thick and super hydrating. I actually wake up the next morning and it’s still on my lips. It has very fine shimmers in it, so you could wear it over lipstick for added dimension and shine.

Kari Gran Naked Lip Whip $20
2
I first heard about Kari Gran on Instagram. I love to discover natural, indie beauty brands and I came across the Lip Whip. They have the Lip Whip in different scents and even tints. Since I use balms before bed, I didn’t want a tinted color. I got the naked peppermint and it’s so nice. I keep this right on my night stand. It’s my current go-to.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask $26
3
Bite Beauty is one of my favorite brands for lip products. This mask is so thick and smells amazing, exactly like agave syrup. This also comes in different tints, but my favorite is the clear.

Lanolips 101 Ointment Strawberry Multi-Balm $13.50
4
I love Lanolips’s products. Their lip products, balms and hand creams are awesome. Lanolips contains lanolin which is an oil that is extracted from wool. It is the closest oil that mimics our skin’s naturally produced oil. Lanolips acquires their lanolin in a cruelty free manner. Sheep need to be sheered regularly for their own well-being and comfort. Once their wool is sheered, the lanolin is extracted. Don’t worry, no sheep were harmed in the making of these products.

Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom $12
5
Glossier is a well known brand in the beauty world. It seems like every influencer these days is promoting and raving about Glossier. I have to admit, I do enjoy the products I have tried, especially the balm dotcom. I like that this is a multi-purpose balm because I will use this around my mouth where I might get dry. Also on dry spots on my forehead.

Clean Beauty Brands I Want to Try

It feels good to know that what I am putting on my face is made with natural ingredients. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, so most of the time, fragrances and harsh chemicals bother me. I am always looking for great, clean beauty brands and here’s a few i’m interested in trying.

logorms1rms2rms3

RMS beauty is well known among clean, cruelty free beauty lovers. I can’t believe I have never tried anything from them. Their cream eyeshadows are a star product. Those are number one on my wish list.

RAWW Logo PMS v2 With Tagline 350x175raww1raw2raww3

Raww Cosmetics is an Austrian beauty brand that has both clean makeup and skincare products. I first came across them on instagram and was immediately intrigued. What I love most is that their products are made with superfoods such as kale, ginseng root, avocado oil, green tea, manuka honey and many more. I can only imagine how amazing these products smell and the fragrance is all natural.

I heard about Thrive Causemetics from beauty influencers such as Kathleenlights and Allie Glines. They both raved about their Sun Chaser bronzers. Thrive is unique in the sense that for every product that is sold, a product is donated to a woman in need. Not only is this brand formulated without parabens and sulfates, it also gives back to women. I am always on board with that.

purelogopure1pure2pure3
100percentpure is another well known brand in the clean, cruelty free beauty community. If you go to their website and read their about section, they go into in depth detail about how they have define “natural” and the difference between natural and synthetic ingredients. It’s very fascinating. I want to try their cocoa infused bronzer and their mascara that is infused with berries. Now doesn’t that sound like a delicious treat for your face?

Hair Care Go-To’s

I have struggled with my hair ever since a few years ago when I noticed it starting to get very thin. There were factors in my life that I believe may have led to this and now it’s an everyday battle to figure out how to get my hair looking healthier and thicker. Although I can’t actually make my hair grow thicker, there are products I use that help make it look shinier and healthier. Here are some of my favorites that help my thin, dry, damaged hair.

Juice Organics Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner

81Q5FGMeGNL
I am really into natural hair care and after receiving a sample of this shampoo and conditioner from Ulta, I fell in love. This helps give my hair volume and thickness without looking dry. I also feel great putting it in my hair because if you look at the bottle, there are so many bad things they don’t use.

Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Superfoods Hair Pack

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 8.12.42 PM
Let me start off by saying, “how cute are these?!” They were made to look like green juices. Please don’t drink haha. I heard about these from beauty Youtuber, Allie Glines and she raved about them. When I heard that they were formulated with super foods like apple, kale, matcha and spinach, I was super intrigued and wanted to try. These smell just like apple, it’s delicious. What I also love, is that the shampoo lathers so well. I have never tried a shampoo without sulfates that lathered. This gives you a full soapy lather which I like, because I feel like my hair is actually getting clean. This leaves my hair feeling super soft and it blow dries so shiny.

Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Crème
briogeo-rosarco-blow-dry-perfection-heat-protectant-creme
Since I have thin hair, after I wash it, I have to blow dry it. If I let it air dry, it gets super thin feeling and oily the next day. Before I blow dry, I love to take a smoothing cream and run it through my hair. You only need a pea size. This helps control frizz after a blow dry and leaves my hair shiny.

OUAI Treatment Masque

ouai-treatment-masque-sample-01w

This is my favorite leave-in-conditioner of all time. First off, I am obsessed with the scent. The smell lasts in my hair until the next day which is incredible. It’s hard to describe the scent because its not a fruity or floral scent, it’s just some sort of perfume scent. I use this in the shower after I shampoo my hair. You are supposed to leave it in for 10 minutes and then rinse out, but sometimes I can’t wait that long if I’m taking a shower. Even if I leave it in for five minutes, I notice a difference. My hair looks like I got it professionally blow dried. Seriously, this product is a gem!

Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream
supershine_moisturizing_cream_1_1
I started using Oribe a few years ago when a salon I went go to used Oribe products on their clients. I absolutely love Oribe hair care. This is the most expensive product I’ve mentioned, but it’s worth it. This is another product like the Briogeo Rosarco, that you apply to your hair damp right before a blow dry. The cream is white with shimmer in it, which is supposed to help give shine to your hair. I definitely notice after I dry my hair, that it’s softer, shiner and not frizzy.

Best Bronzers for Deep Skin Tones

It can definitely be difficult for women and men of deeper complexions to find bronzers that enhance their skin tone. One of my friends who has a deep skin tone actually requested I do a post like this, because she has trouble finding a bronzer that shows up on her skin. I personally don’t have a deep skin tone, but as a beauty blogger who is knowledgable about makeup, I have a good idea of what products may work for any of you with deeper complexions. I wanted to give you guys as many options as I could, so if you want to see more posts of different products for deeper skin tones such as highlighters, eyeshadows, etc, comment below!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer in Mahogany

s1942150-main-zoom

These bronzers are new to ABH and I have heard amazing things. It has a matte finish with a beautiful, warm undertone. This is going to warm up your complexion without looking gray.

BECCA Sunlit Bronzer in Maui Nights

zb_p

I am obsessed with the Becca Sunlit bronzers. I have one for myself in a lighter shade but I love the formula and the warm, glow it gives. You might be looking at this and thinking, wow, that looks really red, however, for deeper skin tones, it does not look too red on the face. It perfectly warms up your complexion and gives an incredible, natural, shimmery sheen.

NYX Bronzer in Dark Tan

nyx

Not only is this bronzer super affordable, it’s also a stunning shade. The undertones in this bronzer are more yellow toned than the others I have mentioned, so if the redish undertones are intimidating, try this one.

Beauty Bakerie Coffee & Cocoa Bronzer Palette

Beauty Bakerie is a black owned makeup brand so they know exactly what is going to work best on deeper skin tones. They are your go-to. I wanted to include a palette because this gives you so many options. You can use these shades the top left shade as a setting powder, the top right shade as a bronzer, bottom left shade as a highlighter or bronzer topper and bottom right shade as a blush or bronzer. I think this palette is so versatile and a great staple in your collection.

Black Radiance Pressed Powder in Rich Mahogany

Black Radiance is also a black owned brand. This is a labeled as a powder which means it can be used to set your foundation or even as a bronzer. This product is matte with a cooler undertone.

Secret Garden

The other day when I was outside, I was looking around and noticed all the natural beauty around me. I decided to capture it using my iphone 8 camera. I am super impressed at how awesome that camera is.

Sephora Summer Wishlist

Farmacy Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy™
BRIGHT_ON_LgStraightSmearProd_041618.R3_RGB2000_2000x
Farmacy has become my favorite skincare brand, so when I found out they were releasing a new mask, I knew I had to get it. This Vitamin C mask detoxes your face removing impurities. Plus, it changes colors which is pretty fun.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer
38723532_027_b
Now that it’s Summer, I want to get into using more cream products. I have heard amazing things about this product and I think it’s a perfect way to start. You get a ton of product in this stick and it’s creamy and easy to blend.

Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara
Captura-de-Tela-2018-04-17-às-15.35.56-620x341
Another product from Milk I have to try is the new Kush mascara. This mascara made quite the buzz on social media because of well, it’s name. The mascara is formulated with cannabis oil which allows for the creamy, nourishing formula.

Becca Be a Light Face Palette
Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 8.45.48 PM
Becca makes some of my favorite face products. I use their First Light Primer almost everyday along with their bronzer and highlighter. When I saw this new palette release, I was very intrigued. The product looks so beautiful and I like how you can get your entire face done in one palette. This palette contains a brightening powder, blur powder, blush and contour that you can also use as a bronzer.

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation
peach2
I usually never try foundations labeled as “matte” but this one has caught my eye. This foundation didn’t create too much of a buzz when it released with the Too Faced Peaches n’ Cream collection. For some reason, now it’s becoming popular and a lot of beauty influencers are talking and raving about it. I’m interested to see what a “comfort matte” is. I wonder if it will be more hydrating than a regular matte foundation.
