Father's Day Gift Guide

    Its that time of year again to celebrate all the men and dads in your life. Today we're showing you some incredible gift options that are nontoxic and great alternatives to chemical ridden products for those special men in your life. These are all easy to use and because they are made with healthy ingredients you can feel good giving these items. Some of these are so amazing you may want to borrow them or buy two so you have one for yourself!
1. Weston and Lawrence Bar Soap: A necessity for every man! This soap comes in an easy to use bar and is made of olive oil and shea butter. This will be very hydrating while providing a gentle and effective cleanse. It's great to have in the shower or by the bathroom sink.
2. Beard Oil:  This oil nourishes, hydrates, and protects those precious beards. It is excellent as an aftershave or anytime a 5 o'clock shadow needs some hydration. The rosemary oil in the bottle will also calm irritated skin from razor burns and will help with any breakouts that can occur in the scruff zone.
3. Bkr Bottle: The essential gift for the dad on the go! He'll use this to put his favorite drink in and the loop cap makes it easy to carry around and hold. Not only will he be hydrated all day and he won't be using plastic since it's a glass bottle. The chemicals found in the plastic of water bottles are known to lower testosterone levels. There is no need to worry the glass doesn't break easily because it has the protective sleeve around it.                                                                                      4. Handsome Plantain Bar Soap: This is for the gentleman in your life that may experience acne or oil throughout the day. This soap can also double as a shaving cream. It's a great 2-in-1 product! Ladies if you see this bar in the bathroom lather it up and use it as shaving cream too!                                                5. Pai Handcream and Eco Tan Coconut Body Milk: Say goodbye to rough, dry, calloused hands with Pai hand cream. This unscented hand cream fits perfect in the center console of a vehicle and absorbs quickly so hand can feel relief without any greasy or residual feeling. We also have Eco Tans coconut body milk which has Coconut, Aloe Vera, Jojoba and Macadamia oil that will help keep skin hydrated and provides long term nourishment so skin will stay hydrated long after using.                                                                                           6. Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser: This is a great cleanser that will wash away impurities and any dirt from a hard day's work. This also doubles as an exfoliating mask if you leave it on for a few minutes. Easy to use tip: keep it in the shower and work into the skin and leave it on as you wash your hair. This gift is the answer to any mans acne, oil, buildup for those who work with grease, and great for men who work outdoors.                  7. Native Unscented Deodorant: I'm sure the last time you walked down the deodorant isle of your local drugstore you saw many common brands. What you don't know about the deoderant you and the men in your life are wearing contain aluminum which is linked to Alzheimer's. Paraben is also found in those deoderants that have their own commercials that is a toxic ingredient that mimics estrogen which negatively affects everyone. Do everyone you know who wears deoderant a favor and pick up our Native unscented deoderant. Native will last all day, is easy to use, and is only made of clean and safe ingredients.

5 reasons why you DO actually need a toner!

    Toner is often times a skipped step in most people's beauty routine but it could be the missing link to making your products work together beautifully. To enlighten you we have compiled a list of reasons to use them and why your skin will thank you.

The main benefits are:

 

1. Toner is part two of cleansing your face.                         

The conditioner to your shampoo, if you will. Toner will remove any residual makeup, dirt, oil, and anything that your cleanser didn't get rid of.

 

2. Balanced skin at last!

A spritz of toner will leave your skin in perfect balance. Not too dry or too oily.....just right. Our skin has a pH level (which means the balance of the skin) and our toners will be at the perfect level to create beautiful skin. Excess oil and blemishes occur when the pH of the skin is out of wack. In order to help banish breakouts and keep oil away you need to be using a toner everytime after you cleanse your face.                                   

 

3. Hydrating                                                                               

Toners quench your thirsty skin so your skin will not just look better but feel better too. Our skin get hydration from the ingredients in toners because they are considered humectants. Humectants don't just bind moisture to the skin but they also attract moisture to the skin. Even after you use a toner it will keep working throughout the day, or when you use this products at night your skin will hydrate as you sleep.                 

 

4. Absorption 

Your other products will absorb and work so much better when you incorporate your toner into your daily routine. You will see more results when using a toner after cleansing because this step will allow your other products to work their magic.            

 

5. Great for anytime.

You can use your toner to set makeup or to use as a pick-me-up throughout the day. (Especially if your skin is looking dull or your makeup needs a refresher.) We love to keep a toner in our gym bag for after workouts and we suggest you do too!

    We carry different toners for all your different skincare needs. We listed below our favorites and who they are best for so you can become a toner fanatic too!

  •  100% Pure Jasmine Green Tea Tonique: Great for drenching your thirsty, dry skin with hydration. This also has hyaluronic acid which is so hydrating it will start to plump fine lines and wrinkles
  • 100% Pure Mint White Tea Tonique: This toner will balance oil production and is for oily and breakout prone skin types. You can expect to see clear skin and a reduction in pore size. What more could we ask for?
  • Fitglow Beauty Sea Toning Mist: If you are looking to calm any inflammation and to keep skin clear than this is the toner for you.This is a go to product for cranky skin that has a lot of redness too.
  • Indie Lee Coq-10 Toner: For the antioxidant and anti-aging product lover! The Coq-10is one of the most antioxidant rich ingredients available and will help neautralize harmful free radicals that are one of the major causes of aging!

Summer Essential: Primers & Setting

Posted by Ashley Hufford

Summer is here and it's one of our favorite times of the year! We love everything about summer except when the heat, sunshine, and being outside all day start to ruin our makeup. Luckily We have amazing solutions to any makeup issues that are great all year round but especial in the hotter months.

To start off with great makeup we need a great primer. The Coola Daydream Mineral Primer will help makeup stay on longer, look better, and it will help smooth out any imperfections. And with SPF 30 it will protect your skin from sun. Daily sun exposure is the main cause of aging so once you do your makeup you will want to set it with the Coola Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30. This spray contains green tea - an antioxidant will help protect against any potential environmental damage from being out doors enjoying summer. Aloe is also a key ingredient which aids in calming and hydrating.

If you have a dry, dull, or mature skin type we recommend the 100% Pure Luminous Primer. Light reflective pigments diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles and makes skin instantly appear more luminous, bright, healthy, and glowing. Infused with red wine resveratrol, vitamins and antioxidants to shield from free radical damage. Once your makeup is done don't forget to throw you 100% Pure Blotting Sheets in your purse to help eliminate any unwanted shine. With the added bonus of being antibacterial they will purify the skin and prevent any potential breakouts

Sea Toning Mist from Fitglow Beauty is another favorite of ours. Packed with organic aloe vera and sea extracts to refresh skin while botanical hyaluronic acid retains skin essential water balance. Sea Toning Mist balances skin post cleansing, sets make up and refreshes skin during the day.

You can shop all of these products in store and online now!
