Foreo LUNA mini 2

Foreo LUNA mini 2

My LUNA mini 2 is the best thing that I purchased in 2017. This facial cleansing brush saved my sensitive face. I thought that once I was going to start using a vegan face wash I was going to struggle more with the rosacea-like pinkness on my face. This facial cleansing brush allows the user to choose the vibrating intensity right for their skin, and one charge lasts for minimum six months. The mini 2 is suited for all skin types, and as someone who has sensitive skin, I am very pleased with the results. The best part is that the company Foreo is cruelty-free! BONUS: Unlike other facial cleansing brushes, this is a one time purchase. This means the buyer will not have to worry about buying replacement brushes. LUNA mini 2 is perfect for saving money, saving the environment, and cleaning your face. 

LUSH's Kalamazoo

Lush's Kalamazoo Beard and Facial Wash

The partner-in-crime to my LUNA mini 2, Kalamazoo is one of the best facial washes I have tried. Thank goodness it's vegan! Lush has many facial wash options but I fell in love with this one because I feel like I am getting the best deep clean out of it. Maybe it's the fresh pineapple enzymes they add to this wash that gives your face that squeaky clean feeling. But I am never left feeling dried for this creamy textured wash feels so nice and silky on my face. 

Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops

Cover FX E + Chamomile Custom Infusion Drop

If you wear a lot of makeup all day, do you ever have concerns about the damage it is doing to your face? I definitely do. I suffer from some weird pinkness that occurs on my right cheek if it's irritated. I drop some of this on my foundation, mix it in, and apply to it my face. It feels refreshing. I can feel the difference on my face after a long day with it in or not in my foundation. Chamomile is very good for calming redness on the skin and vitamin e protects the skin from any harshness that can come with wearing makeup. This makes the perfect combination for someone with sensitive skin. They have three other target options: hydrating, anti-aging, and radiance. BONUS: Cover FX is a cruelty-free and vegan makeup company! 

Starbucks Reusable Cup

Reusable Cups

Reusable cups are very cute, and that's the main reason people purchase them. I see many people buy them constantly but I wonder if they return to their coffee shops with their cups for their drinks to be poured in. I admit that with all of the drive-thrus and mobile ordering systems it's really easy to become lazy and not want to get off to request your barista to use your reusable cup. But the difference can create such an impact on our environment. Millions of coffee cups are found in our landfills. Embarrassing. I personally enjoy iced drinks more, so my go-to cup is this lovely glass double walled tumbler. It looks like it holds the venti-sized drink at Starbucks but it is more of a grande, with extra ice. Sometimes I want a hot drink, and I have a hot mug as well. But since iced is my way to go, this cup is my cold brew holding best friend.
