Clean Nontoxic Self Tan Routine

CLEAN Nontoxic Self Tan Routine hero | Beauty By Earth Self Tan Routine

I’m so glad I’ve perfected my clean, nontoxic self tan routine! Years ago, I did my old self tanning recommendations and routine and it’s fair to say that you wouldn’t catch me using ANY OF those products anymore. Although they did/do get the job done, I don’t feel comfortable recommending those products due to the ingredients being questionable for safety. With that said, that doesn’t…

5 Clean Tinted Moisturizers with SPF To Try

5 Clean Tinted SPFs To Try | Nontoxic Tinted Moisturizers with Coverage that have SPF

Maybe it’s just me because I’m in my mid thirties now, but the importance of SPF is RAGING all over my social media! Rightfully so, since it is the number ONE way to prevent aging signs from catching up with us, as well as, other sun related damage. But for me, as someone with imperfect skin from acne scarring, I prefer my face SPF to…

My Favorite Clean Living Products

My Favorite Clean Living Products

Yes, this is normally a beauty/lifestyle blog… but since I’ve been on this clean journey for the last (ALMOST) two years now, I wanted to share how the clean living lifestyle has extended beyond my beauty products. In fact, my clean journey STARTED with these products. Beauty was the LAST thing I switched. We’re talking self tanners, home disinfectants/all purpose cleaners, cookware, food storage, utensils,…

KOSAS Bronzer vs ILIA Bronzer … Which looks better?

KOSAS vs ILIA Bronzer | Which clean bronzer is better?

A few months ago, two favorite clean makeup brands – KOSAS and Ilia – launched new talc free powder bronzers at the same time! It was hard to decide which to try, so naturally, I bought both. This post has taken me awhile to update though, because I needed to try a couple different shades in the formulas and I’m glad I waited because I’ve…

10 Clean Mascaras To Try 2021

Clean Mascara Round Up | Comparing 10 Clean Mascaras to see how they stack up

Mascara is a really tough formula to nail in clean beauty. There’s a few categories I’ve learned that are tough for clean beauty… neutral/cool bronzers, liquid foundation for oily skin and mascaras. I’ve tried a LOT of clean (or cleaner) mascaras in the past year or so and although I may not currently have them all in my stash, I want to compile my thoughts…

Getting In Shape After Pregnancy C-Section Edition

Getting In Shape After Pregnancy C-Section Edition

I have to start this blog post off the bat with it’s going to be long. This is NOT a ‘lose weight quick’ plan and it goes a lot deeper than just what I did postpartum. It’s also some things I’ll be doing differently if/when I get pregnant again in the future. But most importantly, it’s a new way of understanding health and fitness for…

Guys… it’s the season of listicles… I cannot get away from them! I swore I would be able to have time to publish a couple traditionally photographed blog posts I have on deck, but I also would miss the opportune shopping window of this famous week! Particularly this year, with shipping carriers having major delays across the board, I think many of us are being…

What to get from the Sephora Sale 2020

What to get from the sephora sale 2020 _ Foreo Luna, Olaplex, Lawless the baby one, biossance, sephora clean fragrance sampler

I don’t really *love* writing two ‘listicles’ back to back on the blog (where you use images from the website and just list products/items), BUT it’s also that time of the year (YAY HOLIDAYS!) when people just want to hear what’s good and order, am I right?! Plus, some of these items I don’t currently own (because I need to re-order myself and was waiting…

Cleaner Self Care Products for Tweens or Teens

Cleaner Self Care Products for Tweens or Teens

I had a friend ask me about cleaner, ‘fun’ bath products for her ‘tween’ daughter recently and I realized this is a topic I’m sure many moms of tweens (and teens) may be thinking! So much of those face masks, bath bombs and soaps sold at Target and Claire’s are full of harmful ingredients that can really mess with young girls’ endocrine systems. They’re SO…

Beautycounter Skin Twin Foundation Review [YouTube]

Beautycounter Skin Twin Foundation Review and Demo

When I first joined Beautycounter over a year ago, you KNOW I had to test out their foundation before saying I felt confident representing this brand. Back then, it was Tint Skin. Tint Skin was light/medium coverage with a natural finish in a limited range of shades. Almost a year later, Beautycounter gave Tint Skin a makeover. Skin Twin came out a few months ago,…

One Year Later: Becoming a Beautycounter Consultant

Wow, that went by fast! I officially joined Beautycounter as a brand consultant one year ago this month, August 18 to be exact. It was also, I guess, my unofficial start to a cleaner beauty lifestyle. Now, let’s get this straight… I am a firm believer in progress over perfection in this whole ‘clean living’ world. I am not 100% clean and I don’t judge…
