Green Beauty Recap – August

This month, I’ve got green beauty finds in skincare, hair care, cosmetics, and fragrance. Let’s get started!


First off, let’s talk about some new, lovely colors from the Root Pretty Fall collection. Shown here are the Sugar and Spice lipstick, XOXO lipstick, Bliss eye shadow, and Sophie Pressed Blushing Bronze. LOVING the blush, as it adds the perfect amount of color and sheen to the cheekbones. Also, the XOXO lipstick is the pretty berry for Fall.

Here I am wearing XOXO, Bliss eye shadow, and the Sophie Pressed Blushing Bronze.


Such a great look for Fall, right? I’m loving it. (Seriously, how great is that sheen on the cheekbones?)

Next up, Innersense Organic Beauty hair care.

Y’all know I love me some Innersense. The brand is still my #1 in the organic hair care realm. (I wrote about it in detail here.) Well, now they have a travel-sized kit, which I’m so thrilled about, considering I’ve been traipsing around a fair amount this past year.


This would be a great starter for those of you who want to try the brand out. I highly recommend!

Oh! I think I’ve found the best organic beachy hair product ever.


French Girl Sea Spray. It’s perfection. Adds that perfect wavy, tousled look, yet doesn’t smell like coconuts or tanning lotion. Nope, it’s much more sophisticated – jasmine and neroli to be exact. A must-have for me. (Also, Rodale’s is starting to carry a lot of great green brands as of late!)

Next up, fragrance.


This is the brand new Flourish Calming Perfume by Hollybeth Organics. This handcrafted proprietary blend of marjoram and geranium essential oils evolve to spicy middle and bottom notes of bergamot and ylang ylang.

This is definitely a calming scent, however, it didn’t jive with my body chemistry, so I probably won’t be wearing it very often. (Still on the search for the perfect organic/natural perfume. It’s a tough one! Anyone have any recommendations for me?)

Now, let’s talk skincare.


If you haven’t heard about Maya Chia, you probably will very soon. I’ve read glowing review after review after review.

While I’m not ready to dish a full review (I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks), I can tell you this. The products are definitely worthy of praise – the scent, the quality, yep…I’m enjoying them. The Supercritical Omega-3 Chia Oil has the most lovely light, fresh scent, and although lightweight, it provides good hydration. (Although, not sure about that during the dead of winter. Will have to see…)

The Super Couple smells divine. Like luxury in a bottle – jasmine, rose, frankincense, and lavender – well, you just need to take a whiff for yourself. It’s legit. I’m personally more interested in this particular oil since it has many anti-aging benefits.

I will keep you posted!

Last, but certainly not least, Ilia Beauty has some fun new additions for Fall. Specifically, Silken Shadow Stick in And She Was, Pure Eyeliner in Nightclubbing, and the Multi-Stick in I Put A Spell On You.


I just received these this week, so I haven’t had the chance to photograph myself wearing them, but I have to say, the Multi-Stick was such a pleasant surprise! I Put A Spell On You is touted as “a bright tangerine that looks fabulous on warm-toned skin.” Now, I do not have warm-toned skin nor does the thought of tangerine entice me, but oh my goodness, it looks just lovely on the cheekbones. In fact, I’ve been wearing it the past few days and have received compliments on my glowing skin.

All to say…don’t knock it ’til you try it.

That’s a wrap for this month! As always, leave me questions in the comments and I’ll do my best to help out!
