Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer | Review

Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer | Review

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes, there is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of our eyelids. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick.

I really like Tarte because they are a trendy brand, keeping up with all of the social media hype and demands, as well as making a strong effort to create wonderful products without all the nasty gunk. They never use parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, or gluten. Not to mention, they are also certified cruelty-free, and vegan-friendly.

The Clay CC Eye Primer lives up to all the hype that surrounds Tarte. It keeps shadow in place very well. It also offers an even-toned base and can conceal any concerns of veiny-ness or other discoloration on the lids, and even under the eyes.

The only complaint I have about this product is the cap is really snug. It takes a good amount of effort to get it off, and to snap it back on again.

All in all, this is a good ‘on. For an added bonus I often see it in a lot of Tarte’s sales.

What are some things you do to get the most out of your eyeshadows? Let me know in the comments.

Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

My mom and I recently made our first ever order from Lemongrass Spa. They are an affordable organic/natural/non-toxic skin care, hair care, and makeup brand. One thing we had to add to our cart was the Healing Elements Balm. I’ve heard many good things about it both online and from my chiropractor.

It is such a multi purpose product. You can use it anywhere on your body and it improves the health of your skin pretty quickly. With ingredients like coconut oil, apricot oil, jojoba oil, chamomile and lavender essential oils, as well as vanilla for a yummy scent, it’s no wonder that it works so well and is so loved.

Our Success Stories:

A couple of weeks ago I had a pretty deep, raw rug burn on my pinky knuckle. My nerves burned from the tip of my pinky to my elbow. I stupidly tried straight, undiluted lavender oil on my boo-boo. That was too harsh and made the burning worse. I added a touch of The Honest Co. Healing Balm and did not find any relief. Next, I gave Healing Elements a try. I dabbed a tiny scoop (it came with a little spatula for easy, less messy application) on my raw knuckle, topped it off with a band-aid and found instant relief from the pain. I carried on with that combo a couple of times a day for about a week until my knuckle scabbed over.

Mom has been using it as a night time moisturizer and we both agree that her eyes look less puffy and overall, her skin looks smoother. We have been trying to find a Vaseline replacement for her lips. This didn’t quite match up. She said it absorbed too quickly. She likes the barrier that the Vaseline provides. Do you know of any alternatives for her? Let us know in the comments.

We have been loving this and plan to keep our cupboards stocked with it at all times. It’s such a great multi purpose product that everyone should have on hand!

What are your favorites from Lemongrass Spa? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

The lipstick is a perfect natural pink shade that has great pigmentation. It has a demi-matte/satin finish and is comfortable and hydrating without feeling slippery or oily.

With out a doubt, I would purchase more shades!

Tarte Tartelette Tease Clay Palette | Review

Tarte Tartelette Tease Clay Palette | Review

Tarte is a popular mainstream brand in the makeup addict community. They create beautiful products with natural ingredients. Parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances, and gluten are never used in any of their products. As an added bonus, Tarte is also a cruelty-free company.

The Tartelette Tease Clay Palette, a sextet of pinky-neutral eyeshadows has the most beautiful formula.  Each shadow is high in pigmentation, very easy to work with and blend, and has a luxe buttery texture.

For me, someone who doesn’t wear a lot of eyeshadow, this is a perfect palette. It gives me a couple of different color combinations to work with. For minimal eye shadow days, I’ll use the lighter shades as an inner corner highlight, or the darker shades as a soft eyeliner. This baby Tartelette Palette is compact, minimal, yet diverse. It’s impossible not to love it.

In the comments, tell me your favorite Tarte products, and tell me about your other favorite non-toxic eyeshadows.

The Honest Co. Bubble Bath | Review

The Honest Co. Bubble Bath | Review

Some times all you need to relax is toasty soak in the tub. I always enjoy some essential oil scented salts in my bath, and adding bubbles makes it even better. A lot of organic bath products are quite pricey. I love getting my bath and body supplies from The Honest Co. because they are inexpensive yet I know they will be made from safe ingredients and they will smell divine.

Honest’s Bubble Bath comes in four scents: Sweet orange Vanilla, Dreamy Lavender, Apricot Kiss, and Fragrance-Free. I have tried each of these scents in many of their body care products and I can report that they are all lovely.

For the purpose of a relaxing bath, I selected Dreamy Lavender for my bubbles. It’s awesome. It smells wonderful, It feels wonderful, and the bubbles last for a decent amount of time. If I had a complaint, it would be that the bottle isn’t big enough. If Honest had an option to buy a larger size, I would probably order that one next time.

What are your bath and/or relaxation must haves? Please share with everyone in the comments below.
