Skincare Essentials for a Weekend Away

Summer is too quickly coming to an end, so my husband and I are heading out on one last weekend away.

The recent addition of Odacite's Serum Concentrates into my daily routine has really upped by skincare game. My skin has honestly never looked so good! 

Here are the essentials that will be making the trip with my this weekend!

Skincare Essentials for a Weekend Away. Featuring 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream; Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30; Kari Gran Lavender Hydrating Tonic; Mahalo Rare Indigo Beauty Balm; Odacite Jojoba Lavender Serum Concentrate; Osmia Organics Spot Treatment; and Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser.

100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

I use this cream in the morning and evening to minimize dark circles and calm the puffiness underneath my eyes! The addition of green tea and coffee provides some seriously potent anti-inflammatory power. This eye cream also contains natural anti-aging ingredients that are meant to nourish and brighten. 

100% Pure also makes this product in a 0.3 oz size that is perfect for traveling!

Review of 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30

I know that I mention this product all of the time, but I can't help myself! It's so wonderful! It is unlike any other SPF product that I have used due to it's lightweight, silky texture that doesn't have a hint of greasiness. It also doesn't leave any sort of residue or white cast and the the subtle tint beautifully adjusts to my skin tone. On its own, this cream provides just a hint of coverage and leaves the skin looking dewy and radiant. Underneath makeup, it functions as a smoothing primer that blends flawlessly with foundation. Check out my full review here.

Review of Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30

Kari Gran Lavender Hydrating Tonic

This toner is a soothing blend of 100% fractionally distilled aloe vera leaf, vegetable glycerin, and lavender essential oil. This tonic is so incredibly refreshing on a hot day! The lavender is lovely and calming, but this tonic is also available in a rose version.

Review of Kari Gran Lavender Hydrating Tonic


Mahalo Rare Indigo Beauty Balm

I adore this indulgent, violet-blue balm! It is filled with antioxidants and essential fatty acids that make my skin feel like silk! I also find that it works wonders on the inflammation and redness associated with pesky breakouts. The potent floral scent of this product initially bothered me a bit, but Mahalo reached out and suggested that I leave the lid off for a while. Because all of the aromatics in this balm are from natural essences, they are volatile and will lessen when exposed to air. Now it's perfect!

Review of Mahalo Rare Indigo Beauty Balm

Odacite Jojoba Lavender Serum Concentrate

This serum is a game-changer!! It is like flawless skin insurance in a bottle! The combination of jojoba and lavender helps decongest pores and restore balance to the skin. Not to mention, lavender has amazing antibacterial properties that help gently fight off the microorganisms that lead to breakouts.

Review of Odacite Jojoba Lavender Serum Concentrate

Osmia Organics Spot Treatment

Unlike acne treatments that tend to dry out the skin, this blend of essential oils gently treats blemishes and kills pesky bacteria. Although I find that it takes a bit longer to clear an active breakout, this lemony scented oil seems to eliminate pimples while really nourishing the skin. This treatment is a definite staple!

Review of Osmia Organics Spot Treatment

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser

This cleanser easily removes makeup and effectively polishes the skin, producing a fresh, beautiful glow. It also has an invigorating citrus scent. Check out my full review here.

Ingredient Inventory: Carrot Seed Oil

While you may immediately think of carrots as sweet, nutritious vegetables that are packed with eyesight friendly vitamin A, carrot seed oil is slowly emerging as a coveted skincare ingredient.

Carrot Seed Oil

Carrot seed oil has a viscous consistency, yellowish brown color, and an earthy, root-like, somewhat woody scent. This essential oil is extracted via steam distillation from the seed of the wild carrot plant (Daucus carota), also known as Queen Anne’s Lace. This plant is an annual or biennial herb with lacy, dull white flower that are clustered into umbels.

One of the main chemical components of carrot seed oil is carotol. This organic alcohol is acclaimed for its ability to rejuvenate the skin. Carrot seed oil also contains moisturizing vitamin E and protective vitamin C, which work together to encourage healing and to clear the skin by accelerating cellular turnover.

Because nourishing and tightening the skin's appearance is key to a youthful appearance, carrot seed oil is considered a potent anti-aging ingredient. The high carotol content also makes this oil beneficial for treating wounds and skin infections.

Odacite Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate

As an engineer, Odacite's alchemy-based marketing and Table of Pure Elements is absolute genius! At the top of the anti-aging category, the Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate is designed to restore skin's youthful glow. In addition to revitalizing dull, lifeless skin, I find that this serum is quite balancing. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration without clogging my pores. I like to add two drops of this precious, antioxidant-packed potion to my morning moisturizer or by itself on the days that my skin needs an extra boost of radiance!

Odacite's Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate

Review of Odacite's Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate

It should be noted that although carrot seed oil produces few side effects when used properly, its parent plant, the wild carrot, was found to increase the risk of sun sensitivity due to its high furanocoumarin content, which has photosensitizing effects.

Do you use carrot seed oil?

Review: Kjaer Weis Lipstick

Kjaer Weis's stunning packaging is such a signature of this luxury green beauty brand and the new line of Lipsticks is certainly no exception! Made of white bronze, these chic, refillable bullets are both sturdy and sustainable. Unfortunately, they are also quite pricey! At $56 for 0.15 oz. (4.25 g) of product, these lipsticks are an investment. Kjaer Weis Lipstick Refills can be purchased for the reduced price of $36.


Review of Kjaer Weis Lipstick

Kjaer Weis Lipstick

Consistency + Finish

The formulation of these lipsticks is divine! Not only are they creamy, but the pigmentation is stunning! The texture is buttery, but not too soft, and they melt onto the lips with perfect opacity. I would say that the finish is semi-matte with a slight sheen. Packed with nourishing ingredients such as beeswax, jojoba seed oil, sweet almond oil, and rosa rubiginosa seed oil, these lippes are also incredibly moisturizing, but don't feel heavy or greasy on the lips. I love that their consistency is so smooth and velvety, yet they manage to feel weightless and lasts for hours. The addition of lemon peel oil also gives these lipsticks a lovely citrus scent.


Kjaer Weis Lipstick and Refills

Kjaer Weis Lipstick

Application

Because these lipsticks are so silky, they glide on beautifully! I enjoy using a lip scrub (I like this one from Treat Beauty) to polish my pout prior to applying lipstick so that my lips are smooth, plump, and good to go! I apply these gorgeous hues straight from their respective bullets, but you could also easily use a lip brush.

Wrap-Up

These lipsticks are gorgeous! Packed with clean, nourishing ingredients, these high-quality lipsticks are silky and moisturizing. The color range currently consists of just five hues, but they are all quite classic and should suit a variety of skin tones. I have Honor, a rich, nude pink, and Empower, a cool-toned hot pink. I love that the consistency of these seriously pigmented lippies is so smooth and velvety, yet feels weightless. They also last for hours! While I adore Kjaer Weis's characteristic refillable packaging, my one complaint about these lipsticks is that the tubes are a bit bulky. However, they do have a nice weight to them and protect the product nicely when you're on the go!

These lipsticks are definitely going to become staples in my green beauty arsenal and I can't wait for more colors to be released! 

Have you tried any of these new lipsticks from Kjaer Weis?

Fruit Flavored Ice Cubes

I often mention that my skin is quite dry and that stems from the fact that I don't drink enough water. I don't dislike water, but I work in lab setting where food and drink are prohibited. On the weekends, I refrain from sipping throughout the day because I have the bladder of a small child and my husband and I are always out and about. Needless to say, it's very likely that I am chronically dehydrated and steadily turning into a prune :(

In an effort to get myself to drink more water, I have adopted the fruit infusion trend! These flavor packed ice cubes are super simple to make and can be stored in the freezer for quick access when you're on the go. Not only do they add a refreshing, bright flavor to your water, but they also have a myriad of antioxidant boosting health benefits! These cubes make drinking water irresistible!

Fruit water recipes

One of my secret tricks to spice up these cubes is to make them with fruit juice instead of water. Lemon, lime, and orange juices are perfect for crisp, citrusy summer drinks, but watermelon, cranberry, and pomegranate juices are also favorites of mine! You can also make them with coconut or maple water for a more subtle hint of flavor. I find that adding these cubes to sparkling water or your preferred cocktail is also a lovely way to customize your drink.

Fruit Flavored Ice Cubes

Here are some of my favorite concoctions:

  • Raspberry & Mint in Lemon Juice – I absolutely love raspberries, so this medley is one of my favorites! It is zingy, fresh, and perfect for summer!

  • Cucumber & Mint in Lemon Juice – This classic is so refreshing and using lemon juice really amps up the flavor!

  • Blueberries in Watermelon Juice – This combo is very light and hydrating!

  • Orange & Ginger – This delicious duo is bright and spicy! I love it!

  • Strawberry & Basil – The basil may seem odd, but it adds a sweet, lightly herbaceous flavor!

  • Blueberries in Lime Juice – This is another tasty classic!

  • Cranberry & Lime Juices – These two juices are a perfect match! There is a wonderful balance between tart and sweet with this dynamic duo! 

  • Blueberries in Pomegranate Juice – Packed with antioxidants, this concoction is fruity and delicious! 

  • Maple Syrup in Lemon Juice with a dash of Cayenne Pepper – This detoxifying mix is one of my all time favorites! Yum!


The combinations are endless! Have fun creating your own fruit flavored ice cubes!

5 Product Face in 5 Minutes: August 2016 Edition!

This month's 5 Product Face in 5 Minutes incorporates some amazing hot pinks to embrace the final days of summer! I have been applying a small amount of Mahalo's Rare Indigo Beauty Balm as the first step in my routine to moisturize my skin and prime for these 5 products! I just hit the bottom of my Indigo Balm jar yesterday...Eeks!

5 Product Face in 5 Minutes featuring Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream; Lily Lolo Sculpt & Glow Contour Duo; Glory Boon Passport to Paradise Mineral Blush in Tropical Vibes; W3ll People Expressionist Mascara in Blue; and FitGlow Beauty Good Gloss in Liv.

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream

This cream can be used as both a foundation and a concealer because the coverage builds up so flawlessly! This cream is heat-resistant and water-resistant with SPF 25, which makes it perfect for summer! I also love that while it provides full coverage, it still has a natural finish that gives the skin a beautifully airbrushed look! I like to apply a very thin layer all over my face using a buffing brush and then go back in with my finger to tap a little extra product underneath my eyes to conceal.

(2 minutes)

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream & FitGlow Beauty Good Gloss in Liv

Lily Lolo Sculpt & Glow Contour Duo

I use these silky, weightless powders to give my skin a beautiful glow! I use a fluffy brush to blend the bronze shade onto my temples, around my hairline, and lightly across the bridge of my nose. I also like to subtly contour to accentuate my cheekbones. I then top my cheekbones with the highlighting shade. 

(1 minute)

Lily Lolo Sculpt & Glow Contour Duo

Glory Boon Passport to Paradise Mineral Blush in Tropical Vibes

This is blush is insanely pigmented and blends with such ease! It is a vibrant, hot pink that really gives life to the face. I use a very small amount and a light hand to apply this blush to the apples of my cheeks using the same powder brush that I use for bronzer. 

(30 seconds)

Glory Boon Passport to Paradise Mineral Blush in Tropical Vibes

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara in Blue

The color of this mascara is not as vibrant as it is in the tube, but it brightens the eyes in a way that adds interest to the face. I will often apply this on top of my Lily Lolo mascara to create a sultry dark blue that is perfect for nighttime.

(1 minute)

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara in Blue 

FitGlow Beauty Good Gloss in Liv

This shear gloss is great for when you want that high shine look with just a hint of color! The formula is ultra glossy and nourishing without being sticky or gloopy. It also smells great! Liv is a girly, cool-toned pink the I apply straight from the tube before running out the door.

(30 seconds)


That's it! Natural beauty enhanced with natural products in no time!

Sweet Sugar Soap; Parlo Cosmetics Whipped Shave Cream in Pink Lemonade; RMS Beauty's Nail Polish in Luminizer; One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum; Odacite's Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate; and May Lindstrom's The Honey Mud

It is packed with amazing tropical oils that nourish the hair without weighing it down. Apply throughout your hair for intensive treatment or just to the ends to protect against breakage.

A proper bath requires a seriously fizzy bath bomb! The Spun Sugar Bath Bomb from Parlo Cosmetics has the deliciously sweet aroma of strawberry cotton candy! The addition of avocado, cocoa butter, and shea butter also beautifully moisturizing your skin as you soak! It's divine! 

For a luxe cleanse, I love the glycerin bar soaps from Parlo Cosmetics! Oh! Sweet Sugar Sweet Sugar smells of sugar cane with top notes of lemon rind and and buttery shortbread. The texture of this soap is silky-smooth and it lathers like a dream!

Parlo Cosmetics Oh! Sweet Sugar Sweet Sugar Soap and May Lindstrom's The Honey Mud

Shaving your legs can be an annoying task, but you may change your mind after trying the Whipped Shave Cream in Pink Lemonade from Parlo Cosmetics. Not only is the lemon-raspberry scent reminiscent of a refreshing glass of tart lemonade, but the inclusion of hydrating oils makes this shaving cream so luxuriously indulgent and moisturizing! It's perfect for getting a close shave on those silky-soft summer legs!

Don't forget that code blushingbme saves you 20% at Parlo Cosmetics!

A great face mask is a "me time" must have! My absolute favorite is May Lindstrom's The Honey Mud. This mud is the ultimate indulgent treat! The scent is decadently sweet in a rich, spa-like way that seems to have a lovely, calming effect. The texture is so silky that it really is like applying a perfectly whipped chocolate pudding to your face.

I like to follow up this mask with Odacite's Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate. I am obsessed with Odacite's entire line of serum concentrates and this one has recently won my heart! Under the anti-aging category of Odacite's table of pure elements, this vital glow serum helps improve the complexion of the skin and aid in cell regeneration. It leaves my skin with such a natural, healthy glow!

Odacite's Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate

The Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum from One Love Organics is wonderful! For a boost of moisture straight out of the bath, just spritz this antioxidant-rich blend onto your damp skin. The lightweight formula quickly absorbs into the skin so that you can get dressed without worrying about being sticky or greasy. It has a subtle, floral scent and is packed full of healthy skin goodies like pumpkin seed oil and antileukine 6.

I like to finish up my pamper sessions with a manicure. RMS Beauty's Nail Polish is the best nail polish that I have ever tried!! Mimicking the hues of their best selling creams, the consistency of the polishes is luxuriously smooth, allowing them to glide onto the nails without leaving any streaks. Their staying power is wonderful too! This one in Luminizer is a classic, pearly white.

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Oil Anti Aging Lipstick in Foxglove

Foxglove is a rosy pink with a hint of brownish, mauve that is the most perfect sassy neutral shade! 100% Pure's formulation is divine! Not only is this the creamiest lipstick in my entire lineup, but it is super moisturizing without feeling heavy or greasy on the lips. It is also packed with nourishing antioxidants and the pigmentation is stunning!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Oil Anti Aging Lipstick in Foxglove

This is such a unique color! The Goodness is a lovely blush pink with a silver shimmer suspended throughout.

Axiology Lipstick in The Goodness

This is the newest addition to my lipstick collection and I am completely smitten with it! Temptation is described as a cool, bubble-gum pink. The formulation is comfortably creamy and the pigmentation is rich and vibrant. I find that this flirty pink flatters my fair, cool-toned complexion beautifully!

Lily Lolo Lipstick in Temptation

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Demure

Unlike products that are marketed for both the lips and cheeks, but really only look good on one or the other, Lip2Cheeks are seriously stunning as lipsticks and blushes! Demure is a soft, rosy hue and although its coconut oil-based formulation doesn't last quite as long as its pink peers, it blends flawlessly onto the lips. This color is so alluring and classic! Love it!

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Demure

Vapour Organic Beauty Siren Lipstick in Desire

Desire has a gorgeous pink hue with a touch of coral that instantly brightens the face. Although this shade is slightly warm-toned, it is neutral enough to compliment a variety of skin tones. The texture of this lipstick is quite firm and it will tug at the lips if it isn't warmed up a bit. Once applied, this lipstick has a smooth, silky texture that leaves the lips feeling nicely moisturized. It is so comfortable to wear that I often forget that I have it on. It has excellent pigmentation and staying power, and an understated glossy finish that doesn't feel sticky or cakey. There is also a subtle fruity scent that I just adore!
