Really excited about these products! What are some of your most fave beauty products you have tried this month? Leave your comments below!
Topganic HairCare Products
I've just discovered Topganic’s Intensive Oils and Treat Hair Masks, which combine natural oils, extracts and minerals from the Dead Sea to protect and nourish hair, while working to prevent further damage from chemicals, heat styling and pollution. Since I regularly deep treat my hair, these products are perfect for me and my dry, dull hair. My love: Topganic Leave On Silk Serum. This anti frizz and nutritious oil is perfect for sleek looks.With it's water retaining properties, your hair will stay moisturized all day long. Shop: Topganic.com
Pevonia Blemish B Gone
This blemish treatment is effective without all those harsh chemicals of the usual acne products. Pevonia’s Blemish B-Gone is dermatologist tested and uses natural ingredients for a gentle, yet effective spot treatment. To treat a blemish, apply after cleansing, then let dry for 2 minutes. Next, follow up with your moisturizer. Blemish B-Gone kills bacteria and prevents future breakouts, clears away pore-clogging dead skin and reduces redness and inflammation. Blemish B Gone contains coconut, willow bark extract (for antibacterial properties) and horse chestnut extract (skin softening and purifying properties).
Kissamint is a beauty multitasker! It combines the essentials: gorgeous lip care with hardworking oral hygiene. Kissamint's lip conditioning gloss hydrates lips with a luxe balm, while the mint dropper keeps breath fresh without the damaging effects of traditional fresheners. This is the perfect for date night products. Kissamint is available in sheer (Miss Independamint) or tinted lip gloss (Spearamint Ur Ex), Shop: Kissamint.com
Snap Perfume is the perfect clutch-sized fragrance. It's also super-cute – shaped like a little cellphone camera. Snap Perfume comes in a variety of fragrances (snaps) for him and her, all with different top notes, heart notes and base notes to fit your mood. I like Snap / 1 For Her
- Top Note: Releasing the spirit of joy (Tunisian Orange and Italian Mandarin infused with a sweet rich fruit zest)
- Heart Note: Sensual union (Parisian Rose, Gardenia, and Wild Orchid)
- Base Note: Warmth and power (Elegant White Musk and Hearty Cedarwood).
I'm very particular about what I put on my natural nails and strive to keep them as healthy as possible. I approve of Chrome Girl, a collection of nail lacquers and treatments that are all vegan. They are also 8-free, made in USA, and a celeb fave. It really doesn't get much better than that! The colors are fabulous and long-lasting. Chrome Girl has also created a line of nail polish remover pads that I am dying to try - they smell like Apple Spice and have NO Acetone or Parabens.
Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish
Another nail care fave I discovered last month is from Dr.’s Remedy. Dr.'s Remedy has a chic line of ‘healthy’ nail polishes in both vibrant colors and gorgeous neutrals. Dr.’s Remedy is the first-ever podiatrist formulated polish line. It's 100% vegan, toxin free and enriched with natural ingredients such as tea tree oil, wheat protein and Biotin that aid in strengthening nail enamel. I am enjoying Wisdom White – it's a beautiful glossy pearl color, perfect for all of your nail art ideas and for healthy french manicures.
