Clean Beauty Brand Recommendations by YOU!

YAYY! The time has finally come, babes! 

I am so excited to share all your "clean beauty" recommendations and have my community come together to shine light and knowledge on such a fun subject. On Earth Day, when you saw me on stories donate a MASSIVE bag of "not clean" beauty/skincare I no longer use, I asked you one question: "What are your FAV CLEAN beauty/skincare brands?" The feedback has been incredibly overwhelming! I am so pleased that you are just as much into trying out a cleaner lifestyle as I am. Additionally, as you saw from my stories on Saturday, I took my first "clean beauty/skincare adventure. I purchased LOADS of new products to fill my beauty cabinets with and am starting to try them out now. Eeee! It actually makes me happy on another level. Products always excited me, but there is a different feeling with "clean" products since it's all so new to me! I am a huge nerd, I know. 

Oh, and before I forget! Another blog post will be up soon with all the things I bought the past couple weeks/past weekend and feedback on my newfound love for living cleaner. I don't think I will ever 1000% transition my life to be "green" because there are still so many things I just can't give up, but hey, slowly but surely, we are in this together and we have to start somewhere, right?

Let's bring you lovely ladies together, shall we!? Please note: there are A LOT of brands below. Some are "cleaner" than others and made with higher quality, more "pure/natural" ingredients that denote them as "100% clean". For example, if a product has "fragrance" in it, that does not make it 100% clean even though the brand may say they are "clean"! I know, I am learning too!! Ahhh! Please do your research and always read every ingredient, like I am, to find the best fit for you!

Your mind will be blown and you'll have VERY different opinions on what beauty and skincare you use. JAW DROPPING and EYE OPENING!

  • Monika Hormaza

    A good note is a true organic product Has received a USDA certification.
    I have 🐝 doing a lot research since I am going to Chemo. I have been hook to clean Products for 4 years but I still need to get rid of some makeup that’s not true clean. Also I would suggest to you since you are pregnant and have a new angel 👼 coming into your life is to get yourself a kangen water 💦 machine I bought mine 9 years ago and is super clean and alkaline water. I even take my glass bottles of water every where I go I avoid plastic bottles they are not good for your health and nor the environment,

    Cheers and blessings
