This morning I attended Marie Claire’s Sustainability Forum (#ad), held at Hearst Tower, the first commercial building in NYC to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold for new construction and LEED Platinum for existing buildings. Anne Fulenwider, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire, opened the breakfast (wearing an amazing dress made out of recycled materials) with some interesting stats. Marie Claire conducted a survey …

When I started learning about all of the potentially harmful ingredients lurking in common beauty products, I swiftly started trading out a lot of the products I was using with nontoxic ones. The one beauty area I’ve had the most difficulty finding clean products in has been fragrance. One thing people don’t realize (and I didn’t even know until recently) is that light damages fragrance; …

I received this sample of Beurre Shea Butter at a trade show and have been using it for the past week and absolutely love it. The company makes products using ethically sourced unrefined Shea Butter from Ghana as the star ingredient (you all already know how much I adore shea from previous posts), so I already knew that I would love it. Add to that …

Natural Brand Review: Summer Fridays40F03BE3-A431-457E-A67A-A4022A421D9Edelialicious40F03BE3-A431-457E-A67A-A4022A421D9E

When I heard that two influencers, Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores Ireland, were coming out with their own product line, I rolled my eyes. As a full-time beauty editor, tons of products come across my desk, and immediately thought Summer Fridays would be some kind of gimmick looking to capitalize on the influencers’ dedicated fan base. So, I attended the launch party in NYC, wrote …

I want to introduce you all to another natural skin care brand I’ve been testing for the last month called Pili Ani. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The company was started by accident after the founder, Rosalina Tan, began buying pili oils from local farmers in the Philippines in an effort to help them out financially. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Known as the “chosen tree”in the Philippines, the pili tree’s bark …

I received products from Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare as a gift over a month ago and didn’t use any of it until now. This week I’ve been using the brand’s Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, and it is amazing! I’m talking I saw an immediate result right after using it. I had the most amazing dewy just-came-from-a-spa skin. The formula is a rich …

In a gift bag from a recent event, I received product samples from a brand called, Pevonia. The company says it has been a “green” beauty brand long before it was trend (although I did find that the brand does use synthetics; however, it’s important to note that not all synthetics are toxic/unsafe). Launched in 1991, the company creates products using phyto-organic and natural ingredients. …

I look forward to Christmas because that’s the only time of year my mom makes sorrel juice (also known as Jamaican sorrel). It has a refreshing, tangy, citrusy-sweet flavor that is absolutely addictive. The drink is made from the leaves of the roselle plant (Hibiscus sabdariffa), a species of Hibiscus native to West Africa, and has a beautiful crimson color. Sorrel is actually as nutritious …
