Non-Toxic Perfume Review: Thorn & Bloom

Featured image credit: www.wellsummit.org

During my second pregnancy, I was even more conscious of the beauty and hygiene products I was using. I even gave up using perfume! At last year’s W.E.L.L Summit in NYC, I stumbled upon botanical perfume brand Thorn & Bloom. After about 6 months of thinking, I finally decided to purchase a sample set from them online and give it a try. Here are my thoughts!

What I Purchased

thorn & bloom, non toxic perfume, pregnancy safe perfume, breastfeeding safe perfume, organic perfume, w.e.l.l summit, well summit, eco beauty, beauty blogger, clean beauty
I’ve been using Thorn & Bloom Since June 2017.

My Thorn & Bloom Discovery Set included 5 samples and I was able to pick the scents beforehand. I loved that concept rather than relying on someone else to curate a set for me! The scents I chose were: Limestone, Citrine, Bird of Paradise, Wild Rose and Orange Blossom. The first thing that drew me in visually was the packaging. Do you see that? Gorgeous right?!

I ultimately decided to purchase a sample set from Thorn & Bloom because the ingredients were clean and non-toxic. Since I am nursing my son, the thought of toxic chemicals leaking into my bloodstream or milk made me cringe.

Here is an ingredient list from Thorn & Bloom’s website. This list details what you will find in all of their perfumes and how they go about harvesting their scents:

“100% botanical aromatics,  Essential Oils, Absolutes, CO2 Extracts and Tinctures in a base of triple-filtered USDA Organic Grape Alcohol. Our perfumes are 100% natural and over 90% organic. All aromatics are ethically harvested through sustainable agriculture. We support traditional production methods and source from many small artisan distillers.” 

The Reason I Made The Switch

Many popular brands, regardless of price, are loaded with toxic ingredients that can be detrimental to your health. The following is a list of toxic perfume chemical ingredients in many popular brands: acetone, benzaldehyde, benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, camphor, ethanol, ethyl acetate, limonene, linalool and methylene chloride. Many of these toxic ingredients are considered neurotoxins and hormone disruptors. The only limitation on fragrance manufacturers is that they cannot use banned substances. Ironically, many of these substances have yet to be tested for safety. You can read up on the long list of negative effects these ingredients can have after prolonged exposure here.

My Thoughts

Which Thorn & Bloom scents did I love? Were there any that I didn’t care for so much?

  • My absolute favorite scent is Limestone! It has a lightweight citrus scent yet is strong enough to last an 8 hour day. I was super bummed that my husband dropped the bottle on our bathroom floor and it shattered instantly. While my bathroom smelled amazing by heart definitely hurt a bit..lol.
  • Citrine was my second favorite scent. It’s fairly close to Limestone with the exception of having a bit of a woodsy citrus scent. Both are very uplifting and energizing!
  • The last scent I loved is Bird of Paradise. This scent has a stronger presence than Limestone & Citrine. It also has a spicy yet woodsy, citrus aroma.

The two Thorn & Bloom scents I was not a big fan of were Orange Blossom and Wild Rose.

  • Orange Blossom was way to musky for me.
  • Wild Rose was too floral and musky for me.

I realized after trying these perfumes out that I lean more towards citrus scents.

Swapping out your traditional perfume for something cleaner and safer is the one of the best things you can do for your health! We may not be able to eliminate 100% of toxins everywhere just yet but we can educate ourselves to be ingredient conscious consumers and take our health back.

I’m grateful for the W.E.L.L Summit exposing me to a wide array of clean eco-beauty brands, especially Thorn & Bloom. I’ll be attending W.E.L.L Summit 17 next month in NYC! I’m looking forward to learning about more non-toxic eco-beauty brands to share with you guys! Have you tried Thorn & Bloom botanical scents? Are you attending the W.E.L.L Summit this year?

Non-Toxic Plant-Based Makeup for Women of Color

NARS Creamy Concealer Dupe, NARS All Day Weightless Luminous All Day Foundation Dupe, non toxic vegan makeup, vegan makeup for African American skin, vegan makeup for black women, beauty, non toxic makeup, non toxic beauty, plant based makeup, healthyhairtotoe

This is NOT a sponsored post.

Hey loves! I’ve been slowly swapping out my makeup for toxin free plant-based makeup. I can’t lie, it hasn’t been an easy process. I’ve been wanting to make the change beucause I value my health more than anything. Many of these chemicals have been linked to hormone disruption, cancer and even harmful to reproductive health and baby’s development. Unfortunately, most companies either aren’t inclusive of shades for women of color or completely miss the mark with shades available. I’ve finally found a brand that not only can account for my unique hues, undertones and complexion as a whole, but is inclusive of ALL shades and tones!

Back Story..There’s Levels To This

I originally decided to stick with NARS for my face and cheeks until I could find a brand that was right for my skin tone with clean ingredients that I could trust. I had pretty much given up on trying anything new because of my terrible experiences with other brands and color matching. I’ve literally dropped $100+ on other brands that would claim to match my skin tone, only to find out their shades did the exact opposite. I’ve even gone back and purchased additional products in hopes that mixing shades would give me the perfect color and coverage with no success. Sound like you?

 

The Brand & How I Found Them

Au Naturale is a plant-based non-toxic cosmetic line that I found through my Back To Basics Box last month. NARS Creamy Concealer Dupe, NARS All Day Weightless Luminous All Day Foundation Dupe, non toxic vegan makeup, vegan makeup for African American skin, vegan makeup for black women, beauty, non toxic makeup, non toxic beauty, plant based makeup, healthyhairtotoe
I reviewed their lip stain and fell in love! I didn’t realize that in my box came a swatch card for their face makeup. The shades available were abundant!
NARS Creamy Concealer Dupe, NARS All Day Weightless Luminous All Day Foundation Dupe, non toxic vegan makeup, vegan makeup for African American skin, vegan makeup for black women, beauty, non toxic makeup, non toxic beauty, plant based makeup, healthyhairtotoe

I contacted Back To Basics Box on their official IG page. I told them what brand/shade of products I used & and they were able to color match me in less than 5 minutes! I was excited but nervous at the same time. I kept asking myself, did I just shell out $83 to be disappointed again? Well, judgement day came. I got my package and cracked that baby open right away!

What I Bought & How It Held Up

Au Naturale Completely Covered Creme Concealer

This concealer comes in stick form. I’ve only used liquid concealers so I was a bit worried. I wasn’t sure if it would have the same coverage effect as well as match my complexion. Au Naturale’s Completely Covered Concealer in Baja was an exact dupe to my previous NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Medium Dark 4 (Hazlenut).IMG_0658 I found that I didn’t need as much concealer as I did in the past. It did go on a smidgen lighter than my previous concealer from NARS at 1st which did scared me..lol. Then I remembered, I am probably darker than usual during the summer months…lol. Once I applied the foundation it all blended well together and very smooth!

Au Naturale’s Completely Covered Concealer is formulated without animal bi-products, synthetic preservatives, nano particles, gluten, parabens, fillers, dyes or toxins, 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan.

Ingredients: Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed Oil), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Seed Oil), Organic Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender Oil), Manihot Esculenta (Tapioca Root Starch), Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Micas, Zinc Oxide, Silica, Copernica Cerifera (Carnuba Wax). May Contain: Ultramarine Blue, Chromium Oxide Green.

Au Naturale Semi-Matte Powder Foundation

This Semi-Matte Powder Foundation in Cali is an exact dupe to my NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Macao.  Y’all, this foundation was mind-blowing. It’s a powder in a pump bottle that covers like a liquid foundation. I’m no makeup guru but I’ve never seen a product like this before. It’s much less messier than liquid! I hate when I apply liquid foundation and a drop gets on my clothes..especially when I’m heading out somewhere! Also, The coverage was FLAWLESS!!!! It was as if an airbrush had been applied to my face to remove any imperfections. The plus side was that I still looked like myself…just a glowing version!

Au Naturale Semi-Matte Powder Foundation is formulated without gluten, parabens, fillers, animal by-products, synthetic preservatives or toxins. It’s also 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan.

Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxides, Micas, Silica, Copernica Cerifera (Carnuba) Wax May Contain: Ultramarine Blue, Chromium Oxide Green

Au Naturale Pure Powder Bronzer

Au Naturale Pure Powder Bronzer in Kissed gave me the perfect final touch! The bronzer comes packaged the same way as the Semi-Matte Powder Foundation. I just applied to my cheekbones and was good to go! It gave me an airbrushed sunkissed glow which I love! I have NEVER gotten this effect from any bronzer I’ve ever worn. Hands down, one of my favorite plant-based makeup products!

Au Naturale’s Pure Powder Bronzer is formulated without animal bi-products, synthetic preservatives, nano particles, gluten, parabens, fillers, dyes or toxins, 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan.

Ingredients: Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Micas.

Price Point

Normally I would spend  close to $130 on conealer, foundation and bronzer. I figured that wasn’t bad since I don’t wear makeup everyday and my look is very minimal. Au Naturale through Back To Basics cost me $83 even.

Final Thoughts

Normally I would have this heavy (slightly itchy) feeling on my face after wearing makeup for a few hours. Au Naturale left my skin feeling so fresh and natural that I kept forgetting I was wearing makeup! Removal was also easy and quick. No breakouts occurred after use as well. Winning all over the damn place!

I will be sticking with this brand but I’m open to trying other non-toxic plant-based makeup brands as long as they’re inclusive of all shades!

Thank you all so much for the love on my IG post and IG stories regarding this Au Naturale Cosmetics! I’m beyond excited to finally use plant-based makeup! What I love even more though is sharing my love for  clean beauty and holistic beauty tips with you all! As a black woman in the green beauty space, it’s important for me to find & highlight brands that are ethical & inclusive of all. I really hope this helps all of you!

Vegan Beauty Must Haves With 100% Pure Cosmetics

IMG_8904

Hey loves! It’s no secret that I follow an extremely non-toxic & holistic lifestyle from hair to toe. When it comes to skincare & makeup, I only use non-toxic and/or plant-based products.

One of my favorite plant-based beauty brands is 100% Pure Cosmetics and Skincare. Their products are vegan, certified organic and use only good for you ingredients. I ordered their Coconut Oil Body Scrub during a holiday sale a few years ago and was blown away! I recently decided I’d give their facial skincare & makeup products a try to see how they hold up.

1st up is 100% Pure’s Coffee Bean Eye Cream. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairI don’t suffer from dark circles but I do have extremely puffy eyes with smile lines. I’ve been dealing with increased puffiness since giving birth to my second son back in September. I bought an eye cream a few months back but saw no improvement. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairThe 1st ingredient in this Coffee Bean Eye Cream is aloe, which is known to increase skin’s elasticity naturally. 2nd ingredient is moisturizing rose-water then rose hip oil. The magic ingredient in this vegan eye cream is caffeine rich green tea and coffee de-puffs and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles. After reading the reviews I knew I had to try it. All I can say is O..M..G! While it didn’t eliminate my puffiness off the bat, I did see a reduction almost instantly! I’m going to continue using over the next 30 days and I will give you another update then.

Next up is 100% Pure’s Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone.vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair I love matte lipsticks but they can be so over drying within minutes of applying. I usually end up adding a hint of Vaseline or Almond oil to my lips to prevent that dreaded dry, cracked look. This lipstick eliminated all that for me!vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairRemember, skincare & food ingredients are listed by order of concentration (highest to lowest). Check this out, the 1st ingredient is raw cocoa butter! 2nd is raw shea butter, 3rd is cherry, then plum..I can do this all day but I’ll let you see for yourself..lol. My lips were very moisturized and the color matched my skin tone perfectly! What I loved the most is that I didn’t have to reapply my lipstick since there was no dryness (double win!). There’s a total of 10 shades in this collection including Tempest, Blood Orange, Cactus Bloom and more!

Free Bright Eyes Mask & Coffee Bean Eye Cream

Last is 100% Pure’s Maracuja Mascara in Dark Chocolate.  This is the PERFECT mascara for those with sensitive eyes like myself.vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair I love that this vegan mascara is colored from black tea leaves! There are no harmful dyes in this mascara at all. 🙂 Some of the conditioning ingredients include aloe, cocoa seed butter and maracuja seed oil. I can’t stand when mascaras have that chemical-like scent and make my lashes dry and clumpy. This mascara had a faint chocolate scent that smells divine! The brush helped to lengthen, separate and create just the right amount of curl & volume I wanted while looking fairly natural. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairIt’s also water and smudge resistant! Random fact: I always forget I’m not wearing my glasses when I wear eye makeup. I end up rubbing my eyes and smearing the eye makeup!..lol. Am I the only one that does that? Safe to say this mascara held up! This was my 1st time using any mascara from 100% Pure and I’m definitely a fan!

Naked Sugars Body Scrub Review

img_5342

Hey guys! I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving holiday! How did you guys ring in turkey day? Are your bellies still as full as mine?..lol. We celebrated with lots of family and friends locally. It was also my youngest son’s 1st Thanksgiving which was loads of fun in itself. These last few weeks have been pretty hectic trying to balance both kids, blogging, meetings but more importantly self-care. I was recently gifted an all natural & organic body scrub from Naked Sugars. I’ve been incorporating this scrub into my self-care & beauty regimen. Here are my 1st impressions.

About the Brand

Naked Sugars is an all natural and organic skin care line that uses and combines holistic herbs, essential oils, sugar and salts to curate handmade bath soaks & body scrubs. nakes sugars, organic body scrub, vegan, vegan scrub, vegan bath product, vegan beauty, plant based, organic, natural, black owned, shop small, holistic beauty, holistic, eczema, psoriasis The company was founded by beauty & fashion blogger Nakia Chiron. Nakia suffered from eczema and created these scrubs in an effort to find relief from this painful skin condition.

Morning Riser Body Scrub

Morning Riser scrub is the brand’s best seller and I see why! The lemon and sweet orange scent is extremely energizing & invigorating! It’s just what I need for my mornings since I’m usually in desperate need for a pick me up. img_5339I’m often up at least twice overnight to feed my 8 week old and I try to workout before the kids wake up. Morning Riser has become just as much a staple in my morning routine as brushing my teeth! I love that I don’t have to question what’s in Naked Sugars products, especially since I’m exclusively nursing my son.img_5332 This scrub is formulated with the following pregnancy and breastfeeding safe ingredients:

  • Magnesium Sulfate| Cell Rejuvenation & Alkalizes the body to promote better sleep.
  • Organic Coconut Oil| Hydrating & natural antibacterial.
  • Organic Sugar Cane|Exfoliates & hydrates.
  • Organic Sweet Almond Oil|Relieves dry itchy skin, moisturizes , natural remedy for Psoriasis & Eczema.
  • Sweet Orange Essential Oil|Increases mental alertness, improves memory & reduces stress.
  • Lemon|Brightens and balances the skin & stimulate positive energy.

Final Thoughts

All Naked Sugars scrubs are blended with organic coconut, sweet almond and vitamin E oils to give you the perfect balance of healing and moisturizing properties. I’ve been suffering from extremely dry skin & hair postpartum. I’m very pleased & highly recommend Morning Riser scrub for anyone dealing with dry skin or inflammatory skin conditions. It left my skin so hydrated and supple that I didn’t even need to apply moisturizer after showering! How’s that for time management?..lol. One tip I would say is to maybe store your scrub in a mason jar after opening for easier access while showering.nakes sugars, organic body scrub, vegan, vegan scrub, vegan bath product, vegan beauty, plant based, organic, natural, black owned, shop small, holistic beauty, holistic, eczema, psoriasis

One of the best things about Naked Sugars is that if you’re not ready to commit to an 8oz scrub you can purchase their sampler scrub pack for just $5!! These sample sized pouches are perfect if you’re going on vacation and want your favorite scent with you to get through TSA.

You don’t want to know how many times I’ve lost beauty products to TSA (insert ultimate side eye emoji here). The sampler scrub pack also makes for a great and affordable stocking stuffer for loved ones this holiday season. The packaging is extremely convenient as well. It’s compact so it doesn’t take up too much space at all. All Naked Sugars scrubs have a shelf life of 6 months unopened and 4 opened. They are also safe enough for daily use.

Product Review: TréLuxe for Kinky Curly Coily Hair

image

Happy 4th of July weekend guys! Wash and go season is upon us! Since wash and go’s are my go to style, I figured I’d share with you one of my favorite lines to use all year round. TréLuxe is an all natural and organic hair care line that uses refreshing & certified organic ingredients that you can actually pronounce and feel comfortable using on your entire family. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikkiI’ve been using the TréLuxe line since December of 2015. I first used the line to achieve a wash and go for the holidays. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

My hair was going through a bit of a dry rut at the time and needed a major moisture boost without compromising definition, volume & the health of my hair. The 1st thing I love about the TréLuxe line is that their products are formulated with cruelty free, gluten free, certified organic ingredients. As an ingredient conscious mom this is an important factor when determining what products I use on my hair and skin. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

As you can see, my curls were poppin! Seriously guys, I have never achieved so much definition with any wash and go!

TréLuxe‘s Untie the Knot leave-in conditioner uses natural plant based ingredients such as broccoli seed oil, aloe vera juice, coconut oil and marshmallow root to replenish moisture while making detangling a cinch! Next, I styled with Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer Styling Gel for a medium-high hold. This styling gel is formulated with avocado oil, honey extract and sage to improve elasticity, hydrate hair and give curls a polished look. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Fast forward 6 months later: My hair has grown a ton between pregnancy, self trims and healthy hair maintenance! I recently decided to give TréLuxe a try again but with a twist. This time I used Untie the Knot leave-in conditioner as my styling base & ReFlex Curl Styling Serum to seal the deal on my wash and go. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

ReFlex Curl Serum is a lightweight liquid styler formulated with grapeseed oil, aloe leaf juice and coconut oil. This lightweight styler has major slip yet it’s strong enough to add definition and elasticity for voluminous bouncy curls. I also loved the shine and softness this styler gave my hair. My hair literally felt like air! Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki
