Derma e Recommend

A friend asked for a skin cream recommendation – something that falls in the range of low toxin but with some anti-aging benefits and at a good price point. The Derma E brand ranks high for me. I’ve used a good share of their products over the years; including their Hyluronic Acid eye cream and serum, scar remedies,…

Resolution: Wear Eco Sunscreen

A 2014 resolution. Wear sunscreen everyday. Or you will die. Maybe. However, if you live (because you wore that sunscreen), precious sea critters will die. Maybe. I don’t want to alarm you yet, but that chemical sunscreen running through your veins, suffocating your blood cells is also tearing up our coral reefs. So yeah, the…

January BirchBox – Ecolicious

Got my Birchbox! This January’s Birchbox came with a few treats worth mentioning. I’m excited to try them out, they look effective, fun, and there’s even a perky nontoxic nail polish. Four out of the five products stood out to me as conscientiously low toxin. Score! 1. 100% Pure, Pink Grapefruit Nourishing Body Cream Good…

High-end Hylunia

I’ve spent some shameful amounts of money on skincare, and the Hylunia brand is one where I once made a big honkin’ drop of cash. Two years ago or so, I went to a med spa for a series of groupon facials and the lovely folks upsold me on Hylunia, a hyaluronic acid based line….

Weleda Skin Food – Done and Done

I bought this tube of Weleda Skin Food a few years ago and am now finishing it up. All part of the plan to get closer to getting to try new products! Skin Food is a very thick and rich cream good for dry spots. I find it too oily however, as it leaves a…

Vegas – MGM Eco surprise

I came across hotel bottles of MGM Grand conditioner and lotion from a trip last year to Las Vegas and decided to use them up rather than throw them out. My preconceived notions don’t typically link Vegas to eco friendly or low toxin, but low and behold my perceptions have been blown. I kind of…

TheraBreath tasty mouth paste

I don’t like brushing my teeth. I kinda avoid it and skip a brushing here and there. It’s pretty gross that I do that BUT I’ve got all my teeth, they’re pretty white, I’ve just got one or two fillings, and I go to the dentist twice a year with a clean bill of oral…
