Green Beauty Review | Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorant

Happy Friday lovelies! I’m back with another review. I posted a pic on the ‘gram showing off my latest clean beauty find – Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorant Stick.

Nontoxic Nails | Pacifica #7Free “Cinnamon Girl”

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re well. Just stopping by to show off my favorite shade of red — “Cinnamon Girl” by Pacifica Beauty.

Green Beauty Review | The Honey Pot Company

Happy Wednesday lovelies! As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids in 2013 and had a painful reminder of their presence again in 2017.

Green Beauty Review | Galaxy Bomb by da Bomb Bath Fizzers

Hello lovelies! The dust has settled on my content plan for 2018. Yay! I thought I’d kick things off with a review of the Galaxy Bomb by Da Bomb. I stumbled upon this brand of bath bombs at Target a few days ago, and thought it was super cute that two teeny bopper sisters founded…

Green Beauty Review | Honestly pHresh Natural Deodorant

Hello lovelies! After years of using Primal Pit Paste without any issues, my skin decided it no longer liked baking soda. I never developed a rash, but the color of my arm pits began to change.
