A Guide to Safe Natural Sun Protection + Natural & Cruelty Free Sunscreen Options

Sun safety is something that I have taken very seriously over the years following the rebellious sun worshiping days in my teens and early 20’s. Now being in my 30’s, I understand the damage I have done to my skin in the past while sun bathing irresponsibly. I have had my fair share of sunburns and am seeing the effects of sun bathing on my skin through fine lines and discolouration over the years. For many years I have been on the path to prevent any further damage and to try and reverse some damage done (not so easy to do). This article is a compilation of some of my favourite sun safety tips as well as mini reviews of many of the natural and cruelty free sunscreens I’ve tried over the years (some I love, some are okay.. I think it is important to keep an honest dialogue on which products work best, are safest, and my personal thoughts on them). I’ve included products that are multi-purpose, for face, for body, for children, for beach days (ie. waterproof), and for regular days where you don’t want to necessarily feel all greased up. To start off, I wanted to share some facts on sun care that I’ve learned over the years to help you along on your own sun safety research journey and to make your own informed choice when it comes to safe sun practices.

Clove + Hallow Review + Swatches: Lip + Complexion

Clove and Hallow is a high performance green make up brand that has taken the green beauty world by storm since it unveiled a few years ago. It’s no surprise that this makeup performs, as it was formulated by a Makeup artist who was becoming uncomfortable with the ingredients she was seeing in conventional beauty brands and wanted to create a makeup line that would work just as well but didn’t come with the added unnecessary chemicals. This goal has transformed into a growing line of intense beautiful pigments that STAY on the skin and don’t lose their lustre by the end of the day.

Fitglow Beauty Lip Colour Serum Review + Swatches

A few weeks ago I wrote about fitglows 3 in 1 lip cream treatments as a luxury replacement for conventional lipsticks. I featured my favourite lip palette, nudes. Today I wanted to share my love for their lip colour serums (also known as, lip glosses infused with skin boosting and anti aging benefits) and swatch four of my favourite tones from their line which are also in the nude and berry palette.

I’m always excited to try new cruelty free and natural Makeup lines and there are a lot of times where the testing phase just doesn’t pan out so I don’t share, but I REALLY wanted to share a real winner in my books today called Salty Girl Beauty.

Natural + Cruelty Free Hair Product Guide

Hair care is something I get excited over.. I have long, naturally curly, colour treated hair so I find it can be difficult to find shampoos and conditioners that perform, don’t weigh down my hair, leave a sticky residue or leave my hair tangled and unmanageable. It can be even more tricky to find options that are natural as the products in health food stores tend to not really work for me. They seem a bit archaic in their formulations and don’t really cater to the girl who wants clean products that work just as well as salon brands. Not to mention, a lot of the brands in the health food stores still aren’t quite as clean as I would like them to be. But this just leaves the excitement of the hunt to find the best hair products that are still super clean, something that I think I’ve managed to crack over the years of testing out product after product. I’ve really narrowed it down here to hair products that I use regularly.. and while I may add some more here and there down the way, you can be sure that these are the top performers of the bunch.

May’s Detox Box Reveal + Review: One Love Organics

The weather is finally coming around and May is bringing some sunshine and warmer temperatures along with it. I always like to switch up some of my products when the seasons change and that is why I am SO excited to talk about May’s Detox Box from the Detox Market.

Fitglow Beauty Lip Colour Cream 3-in-1 Lip Treatment Review and Swatches

There has been a huge buzz surrounding one of my favourite EVER green beauty brands, Fitglow beauty. This is a well deserved reaction to the Canadian born makeup and skincare line. Fitglow is known for its makeup that doubles as skincare as well as a nutrient dense skin care line that delivers some of the most potent and skin boosting ingredients around. Not many brands have been able to perfect both makeup and skincare but if I had to choose just ONE brand, Fitglow would hands down be my deserted island choice. I have been a huge fan of this brand for years now as it  was carried by one of the green beauty spas I went to in Toronto in its earlier years.  Fitglow Beauty has always had rave reviews and it’s become the standard for green beauty. I have been using their foundation boosted with seaweed bio extracts and hyaluronic acid for about three years now and it has been my go to for everyday wear. You can check it out in my natural and cruelty free foundation guide HERE.

Vegan “Chicken Soup” Broth: Just as savoury & high in nutrients

This is a recipe that I created out of no where. It isn’t something I was necessarily craving but now that I’ve tasted it and know the nutrient profile in the recipe, I can’t stop making it! I have been making this to eat on its own and to freeze into ice cubes as a nutrient dense broth that you could throw into cooking (ie. cook with your quinoa or add to soups). It will especially come in handy whenever I get sick next and in need of a light comfort food like broth. On top of all that, it’s super simple to make!
