Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Wash Review

I picked up the Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Wash  (13 oz) on a whim when there was a BOGO Free sale at my local Sprouts store. While I’ve tried other scents, the Coconut & Papaya scent is my current favorite! I’ve already repurchased one as a back-up during the past Black Friday sale. If you prefer bar soaps instead, Nubian Heritage also offers their scents in bar form, which is even more affordable and uses less plastic packaging. The bar soaps are also great for no-fuss traveling.

Tata Harper Review – Regenerating Cleanser and Replenishing Nutrient Complex


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)


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.

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.

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:
