This just in! Into my mailbox anyways. The April @theboxwalla has arrived a tad early this time so I can give You guys my review in case anyone was thinking about signing up. I’ve put together this little video of me masking with the @twelvebeauty London Mask and using the Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum. First up, the mask. The London Mask was created to counter the damaging effects of the pollution that is an inevitable part of living in a city. As you can see it’s a light pink color with a fluffy whipped texture and it’s made with ingredients such as kaolin, mallow flower extract, rice starch, vitamin B, olive squalane among many others. It’s very soothing and nourishing, and paired with some other super Hydrating after products my skin feels really good! Also included in the box is the Brightening Serum, and since I’ve only used this once so far I can’t tell you whether or not it actually helps brighten, I can tell you that it’s super Hydrating, antioxidant rich, and even acts as a light moisturizer if you don’t need much more than that. It’s got a lotion like consistency that’s made with mallow, peppermint, cowslip, willowherb, lady’s mantle, heath speedwell, cucumber, white genepi, lemon balm, yarrow, masterwart, and buddleja. The pamphlet says it takes 10-14 days of consistent use to see results so I’ll report back!! Link to subscribe to the April box in my bio. I think you’d love these!! #boxwalla#theboxwalla#twelvebeauty#thelondonmask#crueltyfreeskincare
I never got a chance to post my review for the February @theboxwalla before it completely sold out, but luckily you already know how I feel about the @munskincare Aknari serum. It’s been one of my favorite serums for years now and was my very first luxury green beauty purchase. It’s amazingly simple yet totally effective at Brightening skin tone and making my skin look amazingly glowy. Also included was a second @amlybotanicals mist. We received the Radiance Boost in a box last year and to pair with Aknari last month we received Beauty Sleep. I do only like to use this one at night as I feel the scent is great for calming the senses and mind. Perfect paired together for night time to wake up with great skin. This also marks the last of my snow shots. Now if you will slide on over to the second picture you will catch a glimpse of the April box! Guys, I can’t express how excited I am about next month. I’ve had the @twelvebeauty London Mask on my radar for months now and was thrilled to find out it was going to be included, along with the Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum. I really love the Ideal Level Moisture Serum we got to experience from Twelve Beauty last year so I can’t wait to experience more of their skincare. April subscriptions are now open so if you too would like to try out some @twelvebeauty I’ve left the link for you in my bio. I think subscriptions will close early April so don’t wait too long. Who’s excited for a new face mask?? Only 50 of these are usually made every month due to its complexity so we are in for a real treat! #boxwalla#theboxwalla#boxwallabeauty#munskincare#aknari#amlybotanicals#beautysleepmist#twelvebeauty#thelondonmask#brighteningserum#veganskincare#crueltyfreeskincare
Check these books out! New Pretty Zen collection by @julesaron! I’ve reviewed her newest additions over on my channel today. First up, Fresh & Pure is a DIY beauty book with 75 recipes for cleansers, moisturizers, hair, body, and of course face masks. I tried out the Acai Berry Facial Mask and loved the results. I’m definitely not a DIY’er when it comes to skincare but this book makes it super easy with amazing recipes and beautiful pictures. Would be a fun book to use to throw a DIY party with some friends! Her second release is Nourish & Glow, a vegan cookbook with 75 more recipes to nourish your insides with whole food, plant based, gluten free recipes. The first one I tried out was the Banana Bread and it was pretty amazing. I hadn’t attempted gluten free baking in a really long time but the blend of oat flour and almond meal gave the bread a really nice texture and flavor! Check out my review and you can pick these books up on Amazon! @julesaron also makes a Vegan Cheese cookbook I think I might need to try out! #julesaron#prettyzenbooks#freshandpure#nourishandglow#veganbooks#plantbased#glutenfree
Late night post but I’ve finally got my @mahalo.care Winter Grace review up. If you hadn’t seen, Mahalo has opened up the entire Winter Grace collection for individual purchase. Up till now you had to purchase the entire kit together but now if you only wanted one or two pieces you can purchase them on their own. I highly recommend picking up one of the custom steam towels! It’s so pretty and breathable. I also love the serum and balm. Perfect for dry skin in need of extra moisture. A smaller size of the Circadian Balance is also available. Check out my video and I’ve linked the collection in my bio as well. Did you pick up the collection when it was first released? Planning on picking up anything individually now that the entire collection is open on their own? Maryna makes some of the most amazing collections. Oh and of course if you would love a @mahalo.care toner to add to your collection make sure to pick up the Winter Grace Botanical Toner. It’s super Hydrating! We are still waiting on a permanent Mahalo toner so this is the next best thing. #mahalocare#wintergracecollection#veganskincare#crueltyfreebeauty#winterskincare

When you take 40 pictures and in the end this ends up being the best of the lot. So I’m basically a stay at home mom. I work from home, but I’m able to be with my kid all of the time, and honestly that tends to mean I’m in pajamas all day. I’ve been wanting to get some actual lounge type clothes for awhile so I can actually get dressed without dressing up and feel like I’ve put myself together. Which to be honest has been one of my biggest struggles since becoming a mom. Making time for myself and making sure I’m keeping up with myself and not looking like a homeless bum, which 90% of the time I tend to do. So recently I’ve picked up some lounge pieces from @wearpact. They make organic, fair trade clothing that is sort of made for people like me. It’s comfortable styles, not flashy, and affordable. I’ve bought baby stuff for Oliver from @wearpact before but never for myself. I picked up one of their bralettes which happens to be the most comfortable thing I’ve put on in awhile. No wires, no snaps, and I can even easily still breastfeed in it. They’ve even added some new bralettes styles and colors since I’ve placed my order, so a new order will be happening soon. Also picked up this slouchy long sleeve you see here. And yes I did dress my child to match myself. Don’t all moms do this? But it’s comfy, soft, and I’m loving it! I did also grab a pair of jogger pants buuuuuut I might have put on a few pounds and they don’t quite fit right now . Have you ever shopped at @wearpact? They sell their clothes at Whole Foods too! Love how easily accessible organic clothing is becoming. #wearpact#organicclothing#loungemodeactivate#momlife#stayathomemom#workfromhome
Here are my faves from my February empties that I just posted. I went through a surprising number of products last month and seeing the totals add up is oddly satisfying! Usually I get sad when I finish up my favorite products but now I’m actually excited when I do. I’ve already finished up like six things so far in March! But these are all loves. Some I’ve finished for the first time but have backups of, some I’ve gone through multiple bottles of. See a @joshrosebrook Hydrating Accelerator hiding back there? That makes two for the year so far. Love that stuff. Check out my video for all of my thoughts! #februaryempties#mahalocare#joshrosebrook#naturallogic#earthwisebeauty#skincarempties#skincarefaves
Another snow shot! I thought the snow made the perfect background for the March @artoforganics box featuring @luxebotanics! I’m absolutely loving the Marula Pre Cleanser and the Camu Brightening Cleanser that came in the box this month. The pre cleanse is an oil cleanser that is light and silky but really gets your face clean and leaves it hydrated and fresh. Followed up by the Brightening Cleanser, which is a lightweight cream cleanser that removes dirt and oil to refresh and purify. Both of these together leave my skin soft, clean, and nourished. They really make a great cleansing pair. Check out my video that’s up now for more details and the link to subscribe is in my bio if you wish to try them out. Have you ever tried anything from @luxebotanics? After trying their Camu serum and mist from @pearlesquebox last month and now these cleansers, I really want to try their moisturizers! #artoforganics#luxebotanics#marula#camucamu#veganskincare
Chatted up some skincare goodness and subscription boxes as well as used them all in a routine over on my channel today. Filming videos has gotten so much harder the older Oliver gets. All he wants to do is play with my camera and press the buttons lol. It’s starting to get nicer outside so I’ve picked up some outside toys for him and I may have to start filming in the backyard while he plays since his naps are so inconsistent these days. Sometimes he sleeps for three hours. Sometimes thirty minutes. Always keeping me on my toes. Right now he’s rolling around on the floor of the living room . He cracks me up. How is everyone’s Monday so far??
I’m in the middle of uploading a video and while I was editing it realized I completely forgot to talk about the March @thedetoxmarket box!! I blame Mom brain. But I was super excited to see that @hyntbeauty is being featured this month with the first makeup feature for The Detox Box. Included is a full size of one of my favorite makeup primer type products, the Sun Prep which is a primer with SPF 25 protection! It’s non greasy, doesn’t leave any sort of white cast, and made with fabulous ingredients: aloe, green tea, wild pansy, algae extract, Hyaluronic acid, and chamomile just to name a few of my favorites. I’m stoked this showed up as my current bottle is a bit old so I’m glad to have a new bottle! I featured this in my vegan makeup favorites video if you want to hear more about it. Also included is a full size of the Finale Finishing Powder which is an ultra fine milled powder that provides a pore-less satin matte finish that sets makeup beautifully. I use powder foundation and always set my makeup with a finishing powder. I like this one because it creates a really nice blurred effect. Two smaller additions are the beauty sponge and a deluxe sample of the blush in Nude Apricot. I just caught Oliver eating the sponge so safe to say he likes it lol. I think even if you are not a fan of makeup subscription boxes you will get on board with this one Because the products in here are universal. I’m really loving all of The Detox Boxes so far. If you haven’t checked out this service yet I’ll leave it linked in my bio for you to go read about. Have you tried @hyntbeauty before? What about The Detox Box? Thoughts? #thedetoxmarket#thedetoxbox#hyntbeauty#veganmakeup#crueltyfreemakeup
Here is another March box I’m really excited to share with you. @pearlesquebox this month is featuring the French skincare brand @c.lavie_cosmetiques with two full size products. The 19 Crème Fe Jour and the 11 Contour Des Yeux, their face cream and eye product. I’m really loving both. The cream is a lightweight but moisturizing formula made with prickly pear, jojoba, and desert date oils that protect against external attacks and limits dehydration. It’s moisturizing, repairing and strengthens the natural skin barrier. The eye gel is such a cool product made with Hyaluronic acid, aloe Vera, immortelle and green coffee seeds hydrates, tightens, provides efficient drainage and reduces dark circles. I haven’t been using it long enough to know if the dark circle claim is true, but I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s cooling and Hydrating yet lightweight enough to use for daytime as well as at night. Works nicely under makeup. There are still a few days left to subscribe to the March @pearlesquebox. DANIELLE15 saves you 15% off your first box. Have you ever tried this brand, they are available at @thedetoxmarket as well if you want to read more about them. #pearlesquebox#claviecosmetiques#veganskincare#crueltyfree#greenbeauty#cleanskincare
It’s the first of the month so you know what that means!! @beautyheroes reveal day! This month we are seeing a feature by @siam_seas. The hero is the Yen Heal and Hydrate Toner, and this is actually the first ever toner hero for Beauty Heroes! I hadn’t even thought about how we hadn’t seen one until this showed up, and now I want to see more! Yen is a toner and serum in one product that hydrates and refreshes the skin. It’s made with a ton of awesome ingredients, really too many to name, as well as some I’ve never seen before. Check out the ingredient deck. Pretty great. The sidekick is a new product called the Morning Delight Cleanser which is a water soluble oil cleanser. It’s actually made with garlic and onion! How unique is that?! I’ll have my full thoughts up in a video hopefully soon. My goal was to have one up today but that didn’t happen. But if you are thinking about it at all I wouldn’t wait. With the rate the @beautyheroes boxes are selling out these days I would expect this one to go pretty quick. And then you will be stuck on the waitlist again!! Link to subscribe in my bio. Have you ever tried? What are your thoughts on @siam_seas? There are a couple other products I have my eye on especially. #beautyheroes#herogram#siamseas
Powder cleansers and facial grains are one of my favorite skincare products. You can customize the level of exfoliation you get by adding more or less water, and there are so many formulas out there that there is something for every skin type. Here are a few of my favorites. @leahlaniskincare Kalima Cleansing Powder is made with coconut milk, hibiscus, and Camu Camu to soften, clarify, and brighten the complexion. She smells like the most delicious dessert you will ever eat and when mixed with water creates a beautiful, fluffy mousse that gently exfoliates. I also love mixing this with Kokoleka for an ultra decadent face mask combo. @earthwisebeauty Catharsis is perfect for those suffering from skin redness as this helps to soothe and hydrate the skin. There are no exfoliating particles in here so it’s perfect for those with ultra sensitive skin, but yet somehow manages to soften amazingly. @odacite Green Ceremony Cleanser is a unique foaming powder cleanser that’s perfect for more acne prone and oilier skin types as it purifies by removing excess dirt, oil and dead skin without stripping the skin. Also greatly helps with skin inflammation and redness due to the aloe in the formula. @oseamalibu Vitamin C Probiotic Polish will have the highest exfoliation particles of any of these options and when mixed with any of the OSEA cleansers it helps with skin congestion and brightening. Love this on days I want my skin to GLOW! Lastly, the @malayaorganics Herbal Facial Polish is the most recent release and it’s a serious multi tasker. It’s ingredients work together to clarify, soften, brighten, and even skin texture. I love the ingredients in this: oat, hibiscus, flax, brown rice, honey, coconut milk, rosehip, and ginger just to name a few. It’s so beautiful. I posted a powder cleanser collection and declutter today as well if you want to hear more about these and which ones didn’t work for me so much and I will be removing from my collection. Have you ever used a powder cleanser? Which one is your fave? #powdercleanser#facegrains#exfoliate#crueltyfree#greenbeauty#cleanbeauty#greenbeautyproducts
You know I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures in the snow! It’s just so pretty and no extras needed. If only I had brought more with me to photograph. No matter. I did bring a few of the items from the Crazy In Love Bundle gift with purchase being offered by @thedetoxmarket and had a spa night the night we stayed in Flagstaff. I’m loving these three items in particular. The @goop Exfoliating Instant Facial is like the Juice Beauty Apple Peel but only more intense. I really like the way my skin looks and feels after using this and the sample in the bundle is a really decent size. Which is good because the full size is pretty . I also loved the @olverum Bath Oil. Just a tiny amount of this totally moisturized the water and I came out smoother than Oliver! I hardly get to take baths at home so that was a super nice treat. And I’m really enjoying the @kahinagivingbeauty Argan Oil. It’s light and nutty and ultra Hydrating. There is so much good stuff in the bundle honestly. Check out the link in my bio to shop the store and any purchase over $190 gets you the bundle valued itself at over $190. If you want me to do a complete review of the bundle over stories later today give this post a like! If the bundle interests you i wouldn’t sit on it. They sold out of their first batch a couple weeks ago really quickly and restocked to relaunch today. So get to shopping! Actually it’s available today ONLY! #thedetoxmarket#crazyinlovebundle#freegift#giftwithpurchase
This post is a double feature! I’ve just posted my review of the @naturallogic Balance line on my channel, which in short has been so beneficial in doing exactly what it says it will. When using this line my skin is balanced, clear, and acne and inflammation is greatly reduced. It has got to be the best acne regimen I have ever used. For full ingredients and my thoughts check out that video. Second picture is a new launch! New from Naturallogic is the Universal Serum. I’ve been trying out this serum for the last month or so and it is one of the best Hyaluronic serums I have found yet. Not only is it designed to impart moisture to the skin, it greatly reduces acne flare ups and can be used as a spot treatment on individual areas of the face, but it can also be used as an eye serum or an all over face serum, as I like to use it. It really is wonderful! Check out the fancy new serum bottle as well! If you ever feel like shopping anything at @naturallogic use code DANIELLE to save yourself 15%. There is even a new cleanser on the website that I’m super excited to try and tell you about once I have! More newness coming from @naturallogic in the near future as well! Toni is just on fire! Keep creating these amazing skincare products! #naturallogic#veganskincare#acnetreatment#naturalskincare#balanceyourskin#universalserum#hylauronicacid
I’ve got another addition of my series “flatlay vs real life” for you today. After a rough start this morning I finally got a chance to take my shot for my @beautyheroes video and post and Oliver was playing so nicely in my room on his own but the second I took out my stuff to shoot, he used his toddler laser vision to sniff out exactly what I was doing and came to play. Well, to throw all my @fitglowbeauty stuff around really haha. Good thing he’s cute. Anna, this will be your future soon. . Anyways, check out my video for my review on the February monthly box and the elective makeup box! It’s up now! #beautyheroes#herogram#olivergram#babyolivertomás#fitglowbeauty#fitglow#thegoodlash#crueltyfreebeauty
