So here’s the deal. I try my best to live a non-toxic life, am I perfect at it? Absolutely not, but I do what works for me, what I can afford and what fits into my lifestyle the best I can. I’m constantly learning and growing in this area, and so far I can say it has made a positive impact for me! I have always had sensitive skin issues, and stomach issues and what I’ve been learning is not only is it important what you put IN your body but also ON your body and what your surrounding yourself with. I’ve gotten quite a few questions on instagram about my favorite products so I thought I’d dedicate a blog post about 3 favorite brands and products I use daily. Among this list you will find: skin care, make up, deodorant, dry shampoo, cleaning products and more!
Y’all have probably realized I use and love this brand - so much that I have become a consultant for them. I love that they are more than a product but a MOVEMENT to get better beauty into the hands of everyone. They are the frontrunners of getting legislation changed to have better ingredients in our beauty products in the US. Any ways I use both their skin care and make up! Below are some of my fav daily products and you can find skin care and makeup tutorials on my Instagram highlights.
Countermatch Adaptive Lotion- I put this on daily before I put on my make up - treating i like a primer, t has adaptive technology to get the moisture your skin needs - since I’ve used it I’ve seen a noticeable difference in the oilily ness in my face! (also for you Riverdale fans - Cami Mendez also uses this)
Charcoal Mask - I use this every Sunday night to get out all the gunk. I can most relate it to glam glow, it really pulls out the nasty and leaves you feeling fresh and ready to take on the week
Overnight Resurfacing Peel - I use this around every other night it’s one of their hero products and leaves your face feeling like a legit baby’s bottom in the morning. (don’t worry it’s not an actual PEEL)
Brightening Vitamin C oil - Vitamin C is so important for your skin care routine, on the nights I’m not using the resurfacing peel I put a few drops in with my moisturizer and I also put a few on in the morning with my countermarch lotion
Flawless In Five - this is everything you need for a face in 5 mins (Foundation, blush, mascara, concealer pen, brow gel and lip gloss) I use all these products.
Dew skin with SPF - Each Day I use a pump of this and a tiny squirt of Tint skin foundation and it’s the perfect amount of coverage for me it’s light! The dew sin is alike a cc cream!
Lip Stick - I’m HUGE fan of it, it feels super moisturizing and doesn’t dry your lips out one bit.

Deodorant - YOU GUYS. I found it. My favorite non-toxic deordarnt. So My mom and sister also love it! I’ve tried many many and this is by far the best. My personal favorite is the charcoal one - it smells like a spa and goes on so easily.
Cleansing oil - i switch between this and beautycounter’s cleansing balm to take off my make up! (Double cleansing has definitely helped my skin i do this and then a normal cleanser, right now I”m using beautycounter’s counter control)
Chapstick - this stuff is too good, I cary in my purse at all times
Dry Shampoo - I swear by this stuff and it comes for blondes and brunettes! You shake it on and it doesn’t leave you feeling like you have build up, and it lasts for ever.
This is what I use for cleaning! It comes with one concentrate, and different bottles for bathroom, all purpose, mirror/glass, and hand soap! I also use their oxygen boost. I swear by this stuff for counters, your bathroom shower/bath and even dishes! The oxygen boost has also gotten out some pretty pesky stains out of my clothes 10/10 recommend this stuff and lasts forever. Use this link for $10 off!
Honorable Mention: Cocokind
I use their sea moss exfoliator a few times a week for my skin to get dead skin off and their matcha stick to brighten up my under eyes and as chapstick!
There you have it! If you’d like a more detailed blog posts on my skin care/make up routine, or more.. let me know! Hope this helps some of you looking to start a non-toxic journey!
