SkinOwl Lavender Beauty Drops Review


SkinOwl is a brand that is local to me and I actually met the founder, Annie Tevelin, several months ago at a small green beauty event in Studio City, CA. She was very kind and knowledgeable. She helped me pick out the Lavender Beauty Drops since my skin is blemish-prone and a bit on the sensitive side. I was already a fan of the Mangosteen Beauty Drops PM, so I wanted to try one of her AM Beauty Drops and instantly fell in love with the lavender scent.

Winter Skin Saviors

After living in London and in New York, I’ve come to appreciate our mild California winters. It doesn’t mean that my skin doesn’t get any less irritated or dry around this time of year, but at least I don’t have to worry about wind chill or snow. These are some of my favorite natural, non-toxic products that have been saving my skin this winter:

If you love green beauty as much as I do, then there’s a high possibility that you’ve either heard of these beauty subscription boxes or are already subscribed to them. When I first started transitioning into green beauty, I didn’t really know where to start. Sure, I could’ve explored my local Whole Food or Sprouts to pick up some products, but I am the kind of person that loves to do my research before investing in any product. I used Google to find blogs to get some suggestions and reviews on brands that I had never heard of and were only available online. Now, the search for cruelty-free, non-toxic beauty products is simplified with beauty box subscriptions that allow you to try samples or full-size products that have been curated for you based on certain criteria. With so many beauty box options, the hardest part is choosing which beauty box is right for you.

Finally! More pressed eyeshadow palette options in the green beauty world! While we do have some from Jane Iredale and Lily Lolo, a girl can never have too many palette options. These palettes are super cute and if they’re anything like the Pretty Naked palette (which I own), then the pigmentation is going to be amazing. They even have cute names like Sex Kitten, Punk Princess, and Mermaid.
