Finding amazing green beauty products is one of my passions. Many of you know, I’ve been on the hunt for the best natural deodorant.
On my search for deodorant, I usually find myself in one of the two scenarios:
-no stink + broken out pits
-smooth pits + self-consciously smelling myself all afternoon
I began getting frustrated and VERY tempted to go back to conventional deodorant, BUT you sweet friends recommended so many brands to try so I thought I’d give @ursamajorvt a try.
I’m so happy to say, that I’ve finally found my holy grail!!!! This deodorant contains no baking soda, which means no terrible break outs and I can make it an entire day without getting the dreaded whiff 🙈.
Thank you for all your recommendations you guys! One thing I’ve learned about natural products, is it is a lot like hair - just because it may work for one person, doesn’t mean it will work for all....BUT if you’re looking for something new - give this a try!
A few photos from last week's trip to teach stargazing in a mountain meadow of Northern California: dorky road trip selfie, epic view of the magical Hyampom Valley, and wispy lichen forests. Gosh teaching can be so humbling, and also doing so is taking my learning and understandings of the stars and the skies to the next level. And even though driving 12 hours when I'm already exhausted may not be my ideal weekend, that's just not the point anymore. And seemingly in my willingness to show up and do what's mine to do, life makes it amazing. And I saw my first wild bear!
Mid-month pick-me-up curtesy of the @petitvour Beauty Box. This box is all about summer beauty and I felt like all the products really compliment each other. Here’s the rundown:
@ursamajorvt 4-In-1 Essential Face Wipes:: super refreshing, has just the right amount of product to know that it’s working without dipping everywhere and no weird scent. I’ll definitely be using this for travel.
@littlebarnapothecary Aloe + Rosewater Balance Mist:: I think aloe and rose might be my favorite combo. I spritzed this on after using the face wipe and it smells and feels so luxurious. I’ll be using this to set my makeup as well and maybe as a refresher throughout the day. So good for summer heat.
@oseamalibu Essential Hydrating Oil:: while my face was still damp from the mist, I rolled (yes rolled - it has a rollerball applicator!) some of this oil on for maximum absorption. This blend includes ingredients like jojoba, sesame, geranium and lavender and smells amazing. You would think such a blend would be overpowering, but it smells almost like sand dunes - summery, outdoorsy with a hint of water. Weird, I know, but that’s what it smells like to me and I like it.
@lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek Set:: 3 perfect for summer shades in bright, poppy colors. I haven’t used them yet, but I’ll be trying them out later today and will let you know how it goes. I love the colors and always feel like a creme lasts so much longer than a powder.
If you’d like your own monthly shipment of natural and cruelty-free products, I’ve dropped a link in my bio for you to check it out.
Los colores de las estrellas funcionan como un termómetro estelar. Las estrellas más calientes son blancas azuladas, después las blancas, seguidas de las amarillas, anaranjadas y rojas... Pero lo más apasionante sin duda son el mensaje que contienen cuando las ves a través de un espectroscopio.
