Now that we are approaching summer and the sun is shining bright, we are in definite need of after-sun skincare. @solarderm after sun facial wash and facial moisturizer have been on heavy rotation for the last couple of weeks after being outside for long periods of time. The facial wash is formulated with green tea and Shea butter, and is super gentle on the skin. The facial moisturizer contains green tea and oat to help calm and hydrate the skin. The combination of the two has helped skin recover after a bit too much time in the sun and gives it the extra love and attention it needs. Check it out here.

Leyos Restorative face balm has become an important part of my bedtime routine. The packaging is minimalistic and functional and the product itself isn’t overly fragrant and feels light on the skin. Not to mention, the recommended “pea-sized” portion of this product goes a long way. It definitely has a thick, balmy texture as advertised so it takes slightly longer to soak into the skin. But it is worth the wait. Every morning that I woke up after applying this the night before, my skin felt hydrated, smooth, and just healthy overall. While I enjoy using essential oils and homemade natural skincare, this product seems to have an effect that you can’t replicate with a DIY. And as someone with combination skin, I am ecstatic to find something I can apply to my entire face. Everyone should give this a try if they are looking for a nightly moisturizer.

Matte lipstick has certainly had its moment in my makeup routine, but I was beginning to phase it out and opt for tinted glosses. But after trying Glam Hippie I might just have to give the matte look another try. The texture isn’t overly drying like most matte lipstick formulas. I have found my perfect color by mixing two shades: 444 (a crimson red) and 33 a (a cool dusty rose).

There isn't anything easier than a multifunctional creme stick to make your makeup routine simple and effective. We are loving these creme stix from Monave which we double as a lipstick and cheek color for a seamless makeup application. There are a wide variety of colors from browns (Brandy, Quick Sand), to pinks (Pinkberry, Pomegranate), and even purple (Lilac, Lavender Ice) with both solid and shimmery options. Check them out here.

Monave is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that handcrafts and extensive range of cosmetics and skincare. Products include lip color, concealers, contour and highlighter, facial cleansers, exfoliators, and moisturizers. We appreciate both the cream and mineral-based products. If you are vegan, Monave even has a page to make it super easy to shop with your preferences in mind. Check out Monave's vegan makeup page here.

In the market for some new lip products? We recently tried Bossy Lipstick. With colors ranging from light to bold, the options are plenty! The Velvet Lip Liner set the stage and completed the look for the Liquid Matte Genius. What impressed us the most was seeing for ourselves how well the color applied and stayed in place. It withstood the test of time, even through eating and workday sipping! Coming from a company that prides themselves on being mission-driven and purpose-oriented, this product definitely follows suit! Check it out here.
