I've been a self-confessed beauty freak since a very young age. Even as a Sophomore in High School I remember saving my allowance and doing chores so I could buy a few of my favorite pieces from Benefit. High Beam anyone? That cheek highlight tho? Obsessed. Before my time on the dewy cheek situation. Take that Kim K!!! ;) Now, as an adult, I've only become more obsessed. I love the artistry of makeup and love that a good skincare routine can change your skin (and your attitude) with just a few weeks of diligence.
After a very intense last few months (moving, 6 straight weeks of travel, prepping to launch a business, ect.), I'm finally getting around to writing about my transformation from mainstream skincare products to an almost fully organic skincare routine. Over the coming weeks, I'll write a series of posts that go more in-depth about my story and what ultimately sparked the launch of Paradox. For now, I wanted to give a quick update and write a post on some of my favorite products of the moment. If you're interested in organic or almost-organic skincare. These products are a good way to jumpstart your journey.
Onomie - Love the fact that Onomie's products are makeup + treatment. I'm currently using their bright concealing elixir and love it. New go-to for dewy under eye concealing.
Immunocologie - I cannot say enough good things about this line - it's beautiful, based on science, and works. I was lucky enough to meet the Founder, Karen Ballou, during my time at the CosmoProf Conference in Las Vegas a few weeks ago. Karen is a 30 year beauty industry veteran who's developed a range of products focused on the source of the skin’s performance and wellbeing: immune health. I'm currently using Immunocologie's cleansing system including the Cleanser & Toner and can't wait to add more products into my routine.
Mullein & Sparrow - Let's start with the overview: I love their body oils because they smell amazing and keep my sensitive skin feeling comfortably hydrated. I also love supporting female-owned business, and even better - businesses run by sisters who I also got to meet at CosmoProf Las Vegas this year.
True Moringa - I also recently picked up the True Moringa, Moringa & Lemongrass Oil. Loving this one as a great multi-use oil for my hair & body. I also love their mission! Awesome company, awesome Founders.
Jenny Patinkin - Shout out for her amazing brushes. I'm recently addicted. So. Freaking. Soft.
Paradox Beauty - Yes, you're seeing a preview of that gold bottled, multi-purpose moisturizing oil I'll be launching as the first product in the Paradox line in just a few weeks. I have to stay tight-lipped for now but I'll be sharing more soon. Follow along on the Instagram here and make sure you sign up for updates.
