I’d been hearing such fabulous things about the new AER Next Level Deodorant and was really excited to try it out as I’m always on the hunt for deodorants in green beauty that work. First off, AER comes in three scents: Ginger Grapefruit, Lavender Myrrh (wearing this now) and Palo Santo Blood Orange. Let me just say that they all smell so fantastic, but if you’re a fan of Palo Santo…prepare to be obsessed! I also love the consistency of this: a light gel to powder formula that feels really good going on and definitely left me feeling dry. Now, to be fair, I want to say that this is not an anti-perspirant, as the body is designed to sweat, but it did leave me feeling dry and smelling great. It has a very small bit of baking soda that did not affect me at all, so keep that in mind as you look at the ingredients.

Odacité’s Green Ceremony Cleanser is so unique and inspired from the creator’s trip to Japan! With Matcha and Spirulina as antioxidants todetoxify and reverse free radical damage, watch as this gorgeous green powder morphs into a gritty foam when mixed with water. This cleanser will give you a deep cleanse, light exfoliation and leave your skin clean and definitely brighter. I like to apply it and leave it on for a bit in the shower while I’m scrubbing up. This cleanser comes with a muslin cloth so you can remove all traces of dirt and makeup, too. Honey and sodium bicarbonate are used to remove oils and dead skin (great for acne-prone skin, t00). Includes Green Ceremony Cleanser, Measuring Scoop and Muslin Cloth. Get it here. DEAL: Before you buy, check out the special gifts with purchase that Integrity Botanicals has from time to time,here.
So light and so silky! This brand spankin’ new eye serum from Maya Chia feels so good going on the under eye area (with its cool rollerball). With a host of seriously nutrient-dense ingredients, The Eye Achiever sets out to brighten, revitalize, soften, protect and restore firmness to the under eye. Because it is so fast-absorbing, you can apply it with the rollerball, gently pat it into the skin and then, after a little bit, apply your makeup. What’s in it? “Five macro and micro-algae extracts (astaxanthin, sea fennel, sea lavender, wakame, algae extract), as well as the most nutrient dense plant oils, including supercritical chia seed oil, raspberry, black cumin seed oil, rooibos tea extract, pomegranate, and cranberry.” DEAL: Before you buy, check out the special gifts with purchase that Integrity Botanicals has from time to time, here.
If you’ve never tried one of Rachel’s Body Polishes, this Fall would be thee perfect time to start. Not only do Rachel’s body polishes truly, truly exfoliate the skin and leave it baby soft (I honestly save her scrubs for when I know I’m going to be seeing my beloved and want to be super smooth) but they also come in such wonderful scents that stay on your skin (which I love). This season, because we’re all obsessed with the pumpkin-y scent of Autumn, Rachel has released a limited edition scent, Sweet Pumpkin! If you love pumpkin, this will be your chilly weather favorite as the scent is just so spot-on and so delicious! Made by hand, Rachel uses only the most moisturizing and pure ingredients, too! Oh, this also makes for a great holiday gift, too! Get Sweet Pumpkin (or check out her other scents) here.
