Hi everyone! I can hardly believe it’s finally summer, I’m so excited 😀 I wanted to share some of my May favorites with you. They are all in the makeup/skin care cathegory 🙂
100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Brightening Concealer SPF 20, White Peach
I have been really wanting to find a good under-eye concealer thats more natural in terms of ingredients, and I heard about the brand 100% pure a few years ago but had never tried anything from them before. In fact, as far as I can remember the only “natural” concealer I’ve ever tried is from the brand Terre d’Oc, and although I love their mineral foundation and mascara, the concealer wasn’t quite the right concistency for my personal preference as an under-eye concealer.
I read a review online after ordering the 100% pure one that it didn’t offer enough coverage but I actually find it to work really well under the eyes, although I do agree that it might not have enough coverage for blemishes. It feels a bit “dry” in constency, but it’s light and doesn’t really crease on me. I think its quite wonderful!
Coola Organic Suncare Collection, Face Mineral Suncreen, Matte Finish, SPF 30, Cucumber
I had heard a lot of good things about Coola so I wanted to try out their sunscreen. It is a bit on the pricier side, but I’ve struggled to find a good natural moisturizer and sunscreens these days have so much icky stuff in them that really aren’t good for you. It is a really teriffic brand, quote from their website http://coolasuncare.com

Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, Cool Mint
I think this is a lovely lip balm, it’s quite long lasting and you get a nice large tube with the cutest packaging. And I just love peppermint!
100% Pure Creamy Nail Polish, Kiss
I’ve really missed using nail polish after I started wanting to try to use mostly products which are gentle, and a lot of nail polishes can in fact be quite toxic. I’ve tried a brand called “Piggy paint” (so adorable!) which I thought was nice, but it didn’t last for too long on my nails (I should add that almost no nail polish does though..). After it dried up I didn’t wear any for a long time, but I really enjoy having some color at least on my toenails, and the shop had a sale on 100% pure nail polishes and oh my, so many nice colors! It feels and look so lovely on my nails, and I’m quite impressed with the staying power! Definetly recommended.
