Love & Toast Perfumes- These are natural perfumes I really like if I'm in the mood for something that is more like the conventional perfume experience without the chemical-laden, synthetic-smelling aromas of typical perfumes. These are light and fresh and are fairly long-lasting considering they lack chemical fixatives.
DIY Perfume- That little amber essential oil bottle contains a truly natural fragrance that I made from various essential oils like jasmine, vanilla, cedarwood, etc. I often use it as deodorant and also dab it on my neck and wrists as you would a concentrated parfum. It's warm and sweet so I like to use it at night.
Those are vintage hairnet envelopes in the frames! I just like these and have some framed. There's anther one on the shelf above that you don't see in the picture.
This cutesy initial cup holds my 100% Pure lip glazes. There are some on this shelf and more in my bag. I haven't met one that I didn't like yet! Most of them are creamy and semi-sheer so they're great for casual wear. They are pigmented with fruit so they are as natural as you can get! I love the pop of sheer color I get from them. Fave shades include Watermelon and Daiquiri.
Wild Beauty Rose Gold Elixir- This is the first of the Wild Beauty skin care line and I don't go a day without it! This multi-tasking oil serum keeps my skin balanced while addressing any signs of aging or acne-related texture and pigment issues. Every time I cleanse my skin I tone and use a few drops of the Rose Gold Elixir on my face and neck. You can find it on this site here and if you haven't tried it yet, you must!
Giovanni Ultra-Sleek Leave-In Conditioning and Styling Elixir- Hair products are the one category that I haven't been able to find TRULY ultra-natural products in that don't either dry out my hair, leave it feeling heavy, or strip my color (which is also not natural- there's no such thing as a plant that can make your hair rose red and I just have to have hyperreal red hair right now soooo...). But I only wash my hair once or twice a week and when I do, it's usually just a co-wash (washing with conditioner instead of shampoo) and I follow with this serum (back left) to keep my hair smooth. I run it through with my fingers and let it dry naturally. I'm not in love with this product or any hair product actually, it just does the job.
100% Pure Healthy Skin Foundation- This is just left of center. I love using this fruit-pigmented foundation over my Rose Gold Elixir whenever I leave the house because it contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide and leaves my skin feeling really balanced and protected. It's a cream to matte finish that is perfect for my fairly oily skin.
Wild Beauty Radiant Earth Mask- The unlabeled cobalt blue jar in the center is my upcoming Radiant Earth Mask. It's not available yet but you can stay posted on upcoming products here. I use this amazing detoxifying mask once or twice a week to keep my skin bright, clear, and firm and to minimize pores. It's incredible and I can't wait to share it with you!
Organic Citronella Essential Oil- (back right of center) Here in central Texas we have a major mosquito issue during summer and they love to multiply in the creek running through our property so i literally cannot step a foot outside without being bitten unless I'm covered in something like citronella oil. So I need to keep this with my daily beauty products. I'm currently working on a sexier version of a bug repellent so I don't feel like I'm also wearing boyfriend repellent! On the other hand, if you ARE trying to repel a gentleman caller, I suggest this as an effective option.
GratefulBody Velvet Phytonic- Last but certainly not least is the Velvet Phytonic by GratefulBody (far right), which is a liquid treatment that I use as toner step. I take a pump or two of this serum in my palms and saturate my skin with it. Then I apply the Rose Gold Elixir while my skin is damp from the Phytonic. The Velvet Phytonic is incredibly nutrient-rich and yet totally weightless. It is a clarifying formula that my oily, congestion-prone skin really loves to drink up! Wild Beauty clients can find this in the Client-Only Shop, or you can purchase it directly from GratefulBody.
So that's it! These are what I reach for on a regular basis to keep my skin glowing and healthy. I have lots of other formulas on my counter but they are prototypes that are still being developed so I'll share those with you later.
