This past Sunday I had the best experience at the Project Beauty Expo, in New York. I was excited to visit the expo and see all of the health-conscious and organic skincare beauty lines that were featured there. Founder, Brittney Brown, started in Baltimore and grew her cosmetics line into this awesome project. In addition to the companies present, there was also a panel of gorgeous #bossladies that are changing the face of beauty and wellness industries.
As an esthetician, you can pretty much call me a product snob! I believe in a balance between organic and scientifically proven effective ingredients. So the idea that an organic a product is actually effective enough to treat your skin doesn’t sound like a true statement to me. Alas, I had to eat my words because there were products that I tested and actually believe would be really good for a client’s skin. Here are the two favorite products that I found to be the most effective while being totally GREEN!
Base Butter: Radiant Face Jelly
I can’t get enough about this facial moisturizer! It’s a gel based moisturizer that’s super hydrating! On top of that it’s pH balanced for the skin. This means your skin will drink it right in and it’s less likely to be irritating for a sensitive skin type. It’s Aloe vera -based and has Lavender oil, Evening Primrose oil, plus Omega-6 fatty acids for an anti-aging effect. Besides all the technical aspects of this moisturizer, the feel of it is amazing, and the smell is enticing. It glides on so smoothly and feels amazing on the skin. I definitely say go online to pre-order this product now because I’m sure it will fly off the shelves. It’s priced amazingly at only $27! Pre-order Here!
Coola Mineral Face Matte Tint Moisturizer
Ladies of color, this is the sunscreen you all have been looking for!!!! OMG I just love the texture! This SPF goes on smooth and matte, almost like a primer. It’s unscented so you don’t have that awful sunscreen beach smell that screams to everyone around you, “HEY, IM WEARING SUNCREEN!”. This mineral BB cream gives you all the benefits of a BB cream plus SPF protection, so it’s going to enhance your complexion as well as keep you protected from the sun. It’s cruelty free and apparently TSA approved so it safe to travel with. Besides this product, their website also has a ton of different SPF options for everyone’s preference. One of my favorites, that I’m looking forward to trying would be the moisturizng Coola sunscreen with cucumber. I definitely recommend the Mineral Face Matte Tint Sunscreen for normal to oily skin types. It’s a great buy at $36. Buy here
