While I've been busily doing hair, changing my life and planning for a more simple future, I've managed to try some new beauty things I'm going to throw your way.
Here are some quick hit Friday Finds:
In my Ipsy December Glam Bag I scored a full sized Pacifica lipstick. The completely vegan, naturally-based cosmetic line is one that I had yet to try. I've got a few more natural cosmetics that I put on my own face every day that I enjoy but I've never tried this. I'm so glad Ipsy sent me one because I really like it! It's a smooth glide on and supple feel. I don't feel like it's caked on or drying. It has a pretty coverage. Simple and lovely and looks more satin on finish.
Another change I've made is I've tossed my standard moisturizer in favor of natural oils. I moisturize my skin with these instead.
Simply put, I get out of the shower and, while the skin is still wet, I put some oil on and there you go. On my face I use small drops to distribute evenly. I currently alternate between Aveda's Beautifying composition (with it's Jojoba Oil base) and Sweet Almond Oil.
If you suffer with acne prone or irritated skin, Hemp Seed oil can really help that.
It can also be used to remove eye makeup easily.
I'm enjoying how it's making my skin feel.
Jojoba is the one that is closest to our own skin's composition so you may want to start with that if you're into trying this.
Super bonus - I can also run it through my hair from ends up as I'm moisturizing because the oils are great for the hair, too! My magenta 'do is still holding up wonderfully because of the care I put into my hair.
I suppose that's all for now. I may not blog again before Christmas so have a wonderful holiday time. Enjoy it doing whatever it is that feeds your beautiful soul.
