Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser and Replenishing Nutrient Complex Review

a3af8705e7772339595fe107d9137dd9

I initially subscribed to a green beauty box called Esthoria Box (which has since been rebranded to botanic and terre) just to be able to try out Tata Harper products at a more affordable price point. Tata Harper’s products did not disappoint. First of all, the bright green glass packaging with gold accents screams eco-luxury and is a nice bright contrast from my other black and white minimalist products. I used up these products down to the last drop (!) and have missed them ever since. I’m hoping to repurchase these and possibly other Tata Harper products when another sale opportunity arises.

Current Skincare Routine (Feat. YÜLI, In Fiore, and Josh Rosebrook Reviews)

e5582ca1c7fbb5e7a40593a5493c0185

Lately, I think many people in the green beauty community have been feeling overwhelmed by new products and a pressure to keep up with unrealistic instagram skincare routines that feature a new product every week, claiming it to be the “next best thing” as more brands hop on the healthy living and wellness trend. While I, myself, am also susceptible to falling for the latest skincare trends and social media hype, I’ve been on a journey to curate a more balanced, minimalistic skincare routine that revolves around the Beauty Heroes motto: “Use Less. Love More.” In addition, I think with climate change being in the forefront of recent current events, it’s important to put things into perspective and try to be more conscious about our consumer habits by not only consuming less overall but also by supporting brands that value sustainability, cruelty-free practices, and leaving the world a better place than they found it.

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.
