EVOLVh Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Screen Shot 2017-04-15 at 8.04.22 AM

Over the years, I’ve tried countless green beauty haircare products and it’s been a struggle to find haircare products that I really love. I had originally heard about EVOLVh a few years ago when I first heard about Petit Vour, but for some reason I had never tried their shampoo and conditioner. I think at the time, the most popular natural haircare brands were Rahua and Yarok and there weren’t very many bloggers talking about EVOLVh. However, now there are much more green beauty haircare options like Innersense Beauty (another brand I recommend) and Siam Seas (this is on my wishlist!). While I tend to rotate my haircare products, EVOLVh has quickly become one of my favorites! If you haven’t found a natural haircare product you like, you have to check out EVOLVh.

After almost 2 years of trying different beauty box subscriptions, I’ve accumulated a lot of products and figured out what works best for me and what doesn’t. I’m currently trying to find a balance between my love of cruelty-free skincare and beauty products and being more thoughtful about my consumption. These are my current favorite green beauty boxes that make going green and cruelty-free super easy and fun.

A Beginner’s Guide to an Ethical & Sustainable Wardrobe

For anyone interested in green beauty, once you’ve transitioned to more natural, ethical brands for your beauty and household needs, the next logical step would be to review and refine your wardrobe. I think a lot of us are guilty of supporting and participating in fast fashion without realizing the consequences it has on our environment and the retail industry in general. Thrifting is a great way to still partake in fashion trends and find unique pieces to add to your wardrobe. There are also so many ethical fashion companies that make the transition a little easier. Here are my current favorites:

Boxwalla Beauty Box Review | FACEts of Spring April 2016

I feel like the amount of beauty boxes in the natural/vegan category has nearly doubled in the past year. There’s a lot that I still have yet to try (e.g. Art of Organics, Glowing Beets,  Klover Box, etc.), but I’ve been working on reducing my beauty box subscriptions so I can use up all the products I’ve accumulated over the past several months before I sign up for any new ones. My goal is ultimately be more minimalist about my beauty and skincare routine, but as you can tell, it is still a work in progress.

After making a commitment to clean up my skincare and beauty routine, I never thought I’d ever try Birchbox.

For $59, you get a box of 8 products (7 full-size and 1 sample-size) along with a makeup bag, making the box value a total of $215!

Tinted Sunscreen Reviews

Despite being a self-proclaimed skincare junkie, I still like to keep my daily skincare routine simple. I’ve been on the hunt for my HG (Holy Grail) tinted moisturizer/BB Cream but have yet to find a product that I absolutely can’t live without. However, I have tried several tinted sunscreens and while the Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted with SPF 30 is still on my wishlist, these are the four tinted sunscreens that I have tried recently:
