Did you know Teami Blends makes skincare and that it is Leaping Bunny Certified? The products are tea-infused, and filled with beneficial, recognizable ingredients. The Green Tea Detox Mask contains matcha green tea, lemongrass, and bentontine clay, and smells so fresh. After applying a light layer to the skin, it dries within 10 minutes. You can easily remove it with a warm, wet washcloth. Skin is revealed to be bright, fresh, and renewed. The Hibiscus Flower Vitamin C Serum is light and absorbs quickly to brighten and smooth the skin. Since it is not oil-based, it's the perfect base to use before your daily moisturizer. It also smells like grapefruit, which is refreshing and invigorating. Be sure to check out the entire skincare line here.

Pro-tip: The Plush Beauty Headband is perfect for an in home spa experience and takes your skincare routine to the next level with cuteness.

Individuals often rely on artificial means to get the appearance of sought-after long lashes. We are loving Luna Nectar's Moon Boost Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum, which offers a more natural approach to getting real results. The list of ingredients is two fold: moisturizers, which include aloe vera juice, argan oil, Vitamin E, and sweet almond oil, and lengtheners, which include arginine, algae extract, castor oil, and biotin. We also appreciate the bamboo packaging.

Take a look at the website and check out the pictures of real results here!

We recently had the pleasure of venturing into the world of DIY gel manicures, and believe us, it's definitely worth trying if you haven't already! Madam Glam has made it possible to have gel polish that is vegan, 9-free, and Leaping Bunny Certified. It's not easy to find a salon that offers all of this, especially without leaving the house! One round of the 60 second option in the dryer between the base coat, color coats, and top coats was all the time needed. After following the recommended instructions carefully, nails were dry and ready to go after the last set. None of that continued fanning, blowing, and extra dryer time is necessary. Removal of the polish after it lasted about a week and a half (because nails grew, not because polish chipped or cracked) was easier than we thought. Nails remained strong fared well. The most difficult part about this was deciding on colors- the selection is super extensive! Color pictured is Spring Petals.

During the hot, humid summer months, there is nothing like a great facial scrub to help cleanse and purify the skin. Some exfoliators can be a bit harsh and drying, but Beauty By Earth's superfruits and chlorophyll facial scrub is the opposite. It is gentle while also deeply cleansing to rejuvenate the skin. Since the first ingredient is organic aloe vera juice, the consistency is gel-like with bamboo powder and volcanic pumice to exfoliate. Additionally, this facial scrub is packed with beneficial ingredients including a variety of fruit and botanical extracts, as well as chlorophyll, and has a light minty scent. Check it out here.

Is there such thing as #maskmonday? Maybe not, but you should definitely check out Control Corrective's sensitive skin enzyme mask.

About 10 minutes after applying, the mask is dry but is removed easily with a washcloth. Skin is left super refreshed, cleansed, and smooth. Check it out here.
