Here’s some green beauty Summer products that I love for hair, body and skin!
NEW SEA MIST
Apoterra Skincare and Lovewild Design have teamed up to create this gorgeous pink Sea Mist to texturize and give body to hair. This mist has been giving me that beachy, tousled Gisele hair that I love, without drying out my hair like so many other salt sprays usually do. Sea Mist contains organic algae extract to deliver vitamins and minerals to the hair, so it’s still soft and touchable. I’m also hooked on the floral/citrus scent of ylang ylang, sweet orange and verbena. This is yet another one of my products that my boyfriend has deemed a new staple for him. He loves how it defines his short wavy curls and how they maintain their shape throughout the day. So, it’s great for men, as well. Bonus? 10% of proceeds are donated to Ocean Conservancy! DEAL: 10% off site-wide at Apoterra with code: GPJ. Get it here.
MOST WANTED TONERS
Amly Toners I’d been hearing about these toners for quite some time before I had the opportunity to try them out. My one wish is that they had bottomless bottles and that I’d never run out. So many people in the green beauty industry count these as a staple now, and I can totally can see why. There are two toners to choose from:
Digital Detox – This toner helps to protect the skin from digital and environmental pollution (cool, eh?) The ingredients were carefully chosen to cleanse energy, purify, hydrate and calm the skin. I recommend keeping a bottle of this on your desk to hydrate and harmonize your workspace. It’s also recommended for air travel and when using any devices such as phones and computers. It’s a truly unique product.
Radiance Boost – This toner is just thee most addictive product that I’ve tried in a long time. Terri from Integrity Botanicals was raving about it a year ago and I now see why. The ingredients are super pure: silver-rich spring water infused with organic flowers, hedgerow fruit, native herbs and essential oils of Neroli, Jasmine, Rose Otto, Chamomile, Linden Blossom and Frankincense. I’m finding it difficult to describe the scent and can only say that it is truly lovely and mood-enhancing. Very hydrating, this toner is given a boost with Hyaluronic Acid, Copper Peptides and nourishing plant Probiotics.

COLOR-TREATED SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER
RAHUA COLOR FULL LINE Okay, so this past weekend I actually sent my hairdresser a note asking her what I should do with my hair because it was just so frizzy and dry, even though I was using lots of hydrating masks and sprays. Between coloring it, humidity and lots of travel without my shower filter, it became really dry. Then Aillea sent me Rahua’s new Color Full Shampoo and Conditioner, which I was dying to try since I first heard about it. I’ll be very honest with you, my hair is now so super soft and shiny that I did not need to use any additional treatment or leave-in conditioner. The best news is that this line won’t weigh down your hair or leave it feeling too oily (as many hair products designed for color-treated hair usually do). If you color-treat your hair, I’m highly recommending this! DEAL: Take 10% off site-wide at Aillea with code: GPJ10 until end of day on Friday. Excludes: Kypris, Vintner’s Daughter and Josh Rosebrook. Shop here.
POST WAXING + BODY MOISTURE
CV SKINLABS I’ve been a fan of CV Skinlabs since I first started using them a few years ago. Perfect for those with sensitive skin, I’m a huge fan of their Body Repair Lotion, which is basically thee most hydrating and lush body lotion you’ll ever use. Body Repair absorbs so quickly, feels so rich going on the skin and leaves the skin with a truly dewy glow. Nothing leaves my skin feeling as moisturized as this lotion does and it’s also ideal for inflamed skins, sun-exposed skin, eczema and post waxing. Speaking of waxings, I also use their Rescue + Relief spray after every treatment as it helps to moisturize and calm down irritated skin. I really do swear by it.
