Every month I list my five favorite things that fall into the health & wellness category. They can be anything from a store, a workout class, a book, or even a recipe. Hopefully these monthly posts with inspire you, get you out trying new things, and above all putting your health first!
If you follow along on Facebook, I previously mentioned how I am slowly switching all of my beauty products to organic, cruelty free, environmentally friendly, etc. I’ve been getting a lot of questions on that topic so, this month’s favorites are beauty themed! These are just a few of my favorite recent purchases. All of these items are available at Target. If you are member of Thrive Market you can purchase them for a smaller cost there too!
#5 Day Cream >> Acure: I have several different moisturizers and dealing with Chicago winters does not help my skin. This has been the best one so far. I’m not left feeling greasy and it has a great scent.
#4 Face Cleanser >> Yes to Carrots: This is a great line and I would buy most anything from them. It has a good scent and lathers really well. It left my face feeling smooth and refreshed.
#3 Moroccan Argan Oil >> Acure: Moroccan oil is good for everything – a facial serum, body oil, hair serum, smooths dry patches, and cuticle repair. I use mine mostly on my cuticles. Being a previous nail biter, I’ve done some damage. Being able to carry this around in my purse has worked wonders for my nails.#2 Shampoo/ Conditioner >> Alba Botanica: I’ve been on the hunt for a good smelling natural shampoo & conditioner. Alba Botanica was my answer! Every time I wash my hair it smells like a tropical day on the beach. I like to mix it up, so I purchased the mango scented conditioner and the coconut milk shampoo.
#1 Mascara >> Pacifica: Love this mascara! It goes on smooth and really defines each lash. Adds volume and has a natural look, which I appreciate as I’m not a heavy makeup user. The packaging is so pretty too!
