October 2017 Favorites

Hello beautiful friends! It’s that time again where I share with you all of my favorite products from the past month! Truth be told, I debated typing up this post, and even publishing a blog post today in general, because I haven’t felt very inspired. Not only that but I couldn’t really think of specific new products or brands I have been loving. I’m typically a creature of habit so it’s rare I switch up what I’m using. I decided to go ahead and write up a post for you anyways because I truly do love blogging and I am very grateful I get to do it and share it with all of YOU!

So, without further ado, let’s just jump right in and get to sharing!

ESSENTIAL OILS

“Fall” essential oils. You guys know already that I’m obsessed with using essential oils. They’re such an easy swap to start living a healthy, more toxic free life! About mid-September I started diffusing ALLLL the fall scents. My favorites are Nutmeg, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Christmas Spirit, Orange, and Peppermint!

 

SKIN AND HAIR CARE + MAKE-UP

 Nubian Heritage African Black Soap. If you follow along on Instagram then you also probably already know I struggle with Perioral Dermatitis. I am constantly on a hunt to find the “perfect” face wash for me and I am currently loving this one. It’s a bar of soap so it last forever, it smells great, looks beautiful, and is of course, toxic free!

Acure cleansing towelettes. To go along with the African Black Soap, I am always using and loving Acure make-up wipes. These are also clean and toxic free and get the job done while still being really gentle on your skin.

Pixie brow duo. I’m always searching high and low for a good quality, non-toxic make-up brand and products that don’t cost an arm and a leg. While the majority of my make-up comes from 100% Pure Cosmetics (see my product review here), I was in a desperate need of a new brow pencil. This brand isn’t 100% toxic free but it’s a whole lot better than all the other drug store brands! I like to follow the 80/20 rule to keep myself sane.

Dessert Essence fragrance free shampoo & conditioner. This is another brand/product I purchased to help soothe my PD. The stuff I was using before, again, wasn’t completely toxic free so I swapped it out for this shampoo and conditioner. They are fragrant free but still smell amazing and make your hair feel so luxurious.

 

FOOD

 Full fat coconut milk, unsweetened. THE BOMB. ‘nuff said. But really. I don’t know why I didn’t start buying this stuff sooner??? My love affair with full fat coconut milk started a few weeks ago when I made the most delicious thick and creamy smoothie that tasted like strawberry ice cream. We’ve been loving one another since ❤

 

Annnnd there you have it! I kept it pretty short this month but I like to keep my post real and honest and I refuse to share anything I don’t use or like! I hope you guys get inspired to try some new products and maybe even make the switch to non-toxic living!
