|THE GREEN PRODUCT JUNKIE'S FALL FAVES 2013|
Destress Express Hand Therapy: I had tested this hand cream before it came out and immediately purchased it as soon as it was available. This is going to be a staple for me come the colder weather. Why do I love thee? It's hydrating, the consistency is like a gel/cream, it absorbs sooo fast (I have no patience for waiting for a hand cream to dry before putting my gloves - I know, First World Problems...) and it smells like minty heaven. $26
Organic Eye Crème: I'm so happy the people at Dr. Alkaitis contacted me. I truly forgot how great their products are. First off, the ingredients are so pure that all of their products are edible. Now, I'm not suggesting you nosh, but I am saying this is a super clean line. The base of this eye cream is organic Aloe vera and it's so light, it feels wonderful going on. Again, it absorbs fast and leaves the under eye perfect for makeup application...I mean, perfect. I also love the smell of this...so natural. If you don't like heavy creams or oils near your eyes, I highly recommend Dr. Alkaitis' Organic Eye Cream. I'm really enjoying it. $60
Oral Detox: Okay, so you make your own Oil Pulling solution. I commend you for that, but I have to say that whatever I have made in the past paled in comparison to this. This is like thee oil pulling solution to beat all. I love using it.
But what, you ask, is oil pulling? From the GingerChi site: 'Based on the Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling, our Oral Detox combines sesame oil with healing essential oils to kill bacteria, strengthen the gums, and freshen the mouth. Unlike traditional mouthwashes that are harsh and dry the mouth, oil pulling works with your saliva to create an almost soap like effect that truly cleanses the mouth while strengthening the teeth and gums.'
I wake up in the morning and before I eat or brush my teeth, I take a tablespoon of the Oral Detox and swish it around my mouth for 20 mins while I'm doing everything else. My teeth feel wonderful after, and at $15 for a gorgeous bottle, I think the price point is just right.
Demure Lip2Cheek: I'm big into pinks. With my fair skin and blue eyes, it just works better than anything else, so I'm always excited when a brand comes out with some new pinks. Demure? Oh, my! I just love it. I've been wearing it on my lips and my cheeks and, come Fall, I'll use it to give a simple flush of color over my cheeks. It's a great hue...something like a deeper baby pink, but definitely not Barbie. $36
Whipped Face Butter: Creator, Renan Kennedy has created a line that is pure, effective and all homemade. She's new on the scene and really passionate about what she does. This mousse-like Whipped Face Butter is light and creamy to the touch, but is seriously hydrating. You only need a small amount for your entire face. I tried the Lavender, but she also has scents in Gardenia, Unscented, Lemon Lime and Sweet Orange. This comes in a good-sized jar and should last you for the entire Fall/Winter season. $35
Whipped Face Butter Ingredients: 100% Pure Plant Butters and Pure Plant Oils, Vitamin E Tocopherols, Carrot Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, Patchouli Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil, and Lavender Essential Oil.
Moisturizing Sugar Scrub Squares: These are an absolute favorite. If you're like me and love a good exfoliation in the shower, listen up! These little squares are super exfoliating and take quite a bit of scrubbing to wear away. They leave soft and moisturized skin in their wake. One small scrub lasted me about 2-3 visits in the shower and I have to say, there's very few products I've tried that are as fun to use as this! 5 for $15
PureMoist LipStick: I was so happy to attend the launch event of the new PureMoist LipStick colors. I was even more excited to get my hands on them after having seen the new colors at the event. There is definitely a color for everyone and I think that this formulation is absolutely perfect. It's somewhere between a balm and a lipstick. It's hydrating and feels great on the lips. It smells fruity and I just love it! $25
