Is there such thing as #maskmonday? Maybe not, but you should definitely check out Control Corrective's sensitive skin enzyme mask. This opaque white mask contains kaolin which helps renew the skin texture without removing moisture from the skin. 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.

Control Corrective boasts a wide range of professional clinical skin care with product lines for specific skin types/issues including: aging, sun damage, acne, and sensitivity, as well as a core collection. Check out their entire offering here.

There are so many things to love about Sage Stone Botanicals. Products are made in small batches with certified organic ingredients, and without sulfates or parabens. Additionally, products are packaged in 100% recyclable and reusable containers.

The peppermint organic hand and body wash stimulate the senses and contain organic sunflower and coconut oils so the skin doesn't feel stripped afterwards. (Confession: I've used it as a face wash, too, and it worked wonderfully while still being gentle.) The lavender organic body lotion is soothing, calming, and moisturizes wonderfully with a blend of organic almond and avocado oils, and shea and cocoa butters. Be sure to check them out here.

With the summertime heat and humidity upon us, we tried Loving Culture's Revitalizing Organic Hair Oil just in time! So many benefits here. It worked well taming those flyaways that can still pop up when hair has been straightened, as well as keeping those frizzies at bay when hair was worn curly. This product is designed to moisturize and protect your hair, whatever the style, and being vegan and environmentally friendly are added bonuses. A small amount of this powerful stuff goes a long way, too. Bring on your hair challenges, summer...we're ready!

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.
