Skin Owl

It's no secret that I am a TOTAL product junkie. Last year, I went on a quest to create a whole new clean beauty regimen after I read a few books about the chemicals that are put into your everyday beauty products. For example, women who wear makeup absorb about five pounds of chemicals into their body in an average year. Not only that, but it is known that our skin on our faces absorb more than any other place on the body. Meaning that about 60% of the products we use every day, are being soaked into our bodies. Kinda scary, right? That being said, it's important to not only re-evaluate your make up bag, but also your morning and nightly routine. 

Introducing, Skin Owl. My absolute FAVORITE company, whose products turn skincare into the utmost selfcare routine. I came across their Lavender Beauty Drops a little over a year ago through W3LL PEOPLE, and became obsessed with the idea of using oil rather than moisturizer. Not to mention all of their products are made with the highest quality natural ingredients. Goodbye Toxins!!

 Recently, I decided I wanted to expand my Skin Owl routine and see what else they had to offer. And let me tell you, I am SO happy I did.

After taking their Skincare Scanner Quiz they were able to help me renew my regimen according to my skin type to ensure healthy and happy skin. And let me tell you, my skin has never been healthier or happier.

Beauty Routine

Geranium Beauty Drops - These beauty drops helps balance, decongest and combat first signs of aging, while also boosting radiance. 

Eye + - This eye concentrate is amazing! It is lightweight, and made to help depuff, smooth, and combat fatigued, tired and run down skin.

Charcoal Beauty Bar - At first I was a bit hesitant to replace my nightly face wash with what I thought was a bar of soap. Boy was I wrong though! Charcoal draws out impurities and toxins, while not stripping the skin of its natural oils. 

Mangosteen Beauty Drops - These are by far my favorite Beauty Drops thus far. I seriously get excited for my bedtime routine, all because of the magical Mangosteen powers. Mangosteen is known for its natural antibacterial properties, and antimicrobial compounds that help correct skin blemishes, oily skin and even chronic dry skin. Not to mention, every time I wake up I can tell my skin was been replenished, and shown some serious TLC.

Eye + - Finish off the beauty routine with some Eye + again and BOOM, you are good to go to bed and get some serious beauty sleep.

While this may seem like a expensive routine, I promise you it's worth the splurge. To me when you start to take care of your skin by using natural and high quality products, you no longer feel the need to hide your face with large amounts of make up or obscene Instagram filters. Instead you start to notice the beauty in your raw, and natural self.

In all honesty, I feel my prettiest after using my Skin Owl products. No make up, no large sunglasses, just me in my natural, happiest and healthiest skin.

*Might I add, Skin Owl is not paying me or sponsoring me to say this. This is all my personal opinion based on my skincare experience*

Mallory Choker

Although we are skipping out on a complete "Holiday Collection" this year (due to scheduling reasons), we do want to add a few new goodies for you loyal customers! That being said, we are introducing our NEW Mallory Choker. 

 This necklace is our first Suede Choker from the Little Pieces of Hope shop. In terms of styling, we paired together the infamous Free People cordurouy skirt (that I just can't get enough of) and a white Lululemon top. Making it the perfect go-to outfit for date night, girls night, or whatever else kind of night you're into.
