@seedphytonutrients is a classic New York story, successful, career-oriented city dwellers fall in love with a farm upstate and creates farm-fresh, natural beauty brand using hand-picked, local, sustainable ingredients. Their branding is as simple and straightforward as their products but I had a chance to get a peak at the formulas a bit before the launch and I loved everything I had a chance to try. A few standouts were their exfoliating hand wash (why aren’t there more of these?!), the pairing of their simple gentle facial cleanser and moisturizer and the hair cleanser and lightweight conditioner which my family literally fought over!
I am loving the waves of kindness flooding Instagram from @axiology_beauty #kindtoallkind campaign! (Sorry for all the 💦water/wave references, a leaky pipe has put water on my mind! 🙈). The super cute sweatshirts (plus the ones for animal babies!) are up on their site and I can personally attest to how soft and comfy they are!
Looking back to autumn, the season of transition, with @5yina's Grace beauty oil, an antioxidant and bioactive rich oil that repairs sun damage, strengthens and perfects the skin for fresh, glowing skin.
The lovely sisters behind @rusticmaka have saved winter skin with their delicious mango + orange calendula infused body cream, a rich yet simple body treatment that works to bring a hint of summery citrus to dry skin.
If you’re an ingredient junkie you’ll be pleased to know the product is created by infusing soothing Calendula in Apricot Kernel oil with a base of Sal butter and Camellia oil with Evening Primrose and Vitamin E, but you may simply want to enjoy the beautiful emollient texture and the way your skin feels and looks!
Feeling the change in 2018! Kaya and I are so happy to be a part of @axiology_beauty's Kind to All Kind campaign. One more reason to love this cruelty-free vegan lipstick that doesn't comprise on performance. Follow the link in my bio to learn more and check out #KindtoAllKind for a total cuteness overload!
Starting 2018 full of hope that our world, our country and our communities will be more at peace, kinder and more accepting. Reflecting on 2017, an incredibly hard year personally and for the country, I know it will make me appreciate the good times and the people who make my life rich - from my family, to my friends and the incredibly talented people I have the pleasure of working with! Here's to a wonderful year ahead! 🥂
Ringing in the New Year with a minimalist lip and a maximalist eye! @flirtcosmetics brings major eye drama with the super-pigments shadows in warm, jewel-tones from their major metallics eyeshadow palette and easy dot dot dot dual art liquid liner! Happy 2018!

Not just for creating drop dead gorgeous makeup, @tartecosmetics has just introduced a duo of super-strong blemish fighters, the knockout tingling treatment (yes, it tingles but didn’t bother my sensitive skin) and blemish bully. Together they’re a one-two punch of a skin-balancing toner that regulates pH and a vegan spot treatment for squelching blemishes when they do crop up and prevent them from causing scaring! #rethinknatural#tarteskin
