The second 30 Day Challenge I’m participating in for the Beauty Channel is the 30 Days of Beauty! Basically someone created a list of things and you talk about 1 topic a day. Please feel free to contribute and join in!
#30DaysofBeauty – Day 1: Favourite Brands
For todays topic, I’ve chosen 3 Brands that I use the most frequently and looooooovee 🙂
The first brand I chose is Organic Skincare Doctor.
I just recently began using their products but I feel like I can honestly say they are one of my top favourite brands. Two products that I use the most are the Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir and the Manuka Honey Hand & Nail Cream.
I use the elixir lightly on my face before I fully moisturize in the morning and apply my makeup. It hydrates and works as a slight toner while being a treatment for wrinkles and aging.
I literally use the hand cream EVERY SINGLE DAY since getting it delivered. My hands have always been super dry and recently were to the point where nothing would stop my fingertips from peeling. The first time I used this hand cream, I instantly noticed the change! It only took a couple of days of using this before the peeling on my hands had gone away. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for something to hydrate their hands.
The products in these lines are certified organic, are cruelty free and safe for vegans!
My second favourite brand is Giovanni.
I had a health fair at my old job and literally got a bag FILLED with different Giovanni products. I still am going through them now!
The very first line I tried was their D: tox System. I have a bunch of samples from their 4 step system that I use about twice a week.
A little bit goes a long way with their products so I’ve been able to get 2-3 uses out of all of my samples!
The entire set is amazing and even if you just use the cleanser, your skin will feel so smooth and clean without feeling stripped or dry like some other cleansers make it feel. The D:Tox products contain activated charcoal and volcanic ash, which I think make the difference between this set and my other facial cleansers that I’ve tried.
The volcanic ash absorbs all the gunk out of your skin and pores and brings them on the surface of your skin where you can easily cleanse them away. Antioxidants such as Fig, Acai, and Green Tea are in the products to help with anti-aging.
I carry A LOT of face and hair towlettes in my bag and pretty much all of them are Giovanni ones xD
Current ones I’ve pulled out of my bag to show you are 1 from the D:Tox system mentioned above as well as 1 from each of the facial cleansing lines: Refreshing & Soothing.
The refreshing wipes contain cucumber (which you know I LOVE) & citrus extracts as well as antioxidants.
The soothing wipes are fragrance free and contain aloe and Echinacea. The wipes from this line are geared toward sensitive skin, so I like to have this option should my skin want to have a crazy “oh no you didnt” kind of day. 🙂
I have some hair touch up towelettes from the Ultra-Moist line which contains avocado & olive oils, that help with frizz and humidity should the weather change or my hair decides to go nuts at some point during the day.
The products in this line are also are certified organic, are cruelty free and safe for vegans!
The last brand I chose for today is NARS.
I’ve absolutely loved my NARS Multi-Action Hydrating Toner since the day I got it. It is alcohol, synthetic fragrance, oil and paraben free and gently exfoliates and brightens the skin. I use this a few times a week by pumping once onto a cotton pad and holding for a few seconds over dry patches on my face and over my eyes. I use an additional pump and rub in circular motions all over my face. This makes my face feel so hydrated and doesn’t clog my pores or irritate my skin.
It contains the Light Reflecting Complex advertised by the company which reflects light off of your skin for a glow.
The second favourite product from NARS is my Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Finland. It’s oil free and is so light on your skin! For the days I’m either too lazy or just don’t need a full coverage face of foundation, I go to this. It hydrates and give a slight tint of color to even out the tone of your face. It makes your face feel smoother as well! It contains SPF 30 should you be concerned about products with/without SPF.
NARS tends to be on the really pricey side of Makeup and Skincare, but these two products are worth every penny I spent!
Sorry for such a long Day 1 post! It would have seemed much shorter in a video Im sure, but until I get a couple of things to add onto my newer equipment, you shall have to wait! 😛
I’d love for you to join in the 30 day challenge or just let me know your response to the days topic! <3
