Facial Balm vs. Beauty Butter - Which should I choose?

Facial Balm vs. Beauty Butter - Which should I choose?

Okay, so, yeah... I went and made another product for your face. I couldn't help myself!  I know, I know, you just figured out what to do with this thing I call beauty butter. Or maybe you've just started with a natural skincare routine period, and now I've gone and changed it up on you.  Well, kind of, it's not really a change! You can TOTALLY keep doing what you're doing if it works well for you.  If you've read my other blogs, you know that I was inspired to make this matcha green tea facial balm during a time when I was having...

Two-minute Cleansing & Exfoliating Treatment

Because my daily powder cleanser is exfoliating, and I use it almost every night, I try not to over-exfoliate my face. But sometimes, we all just need a really good polish!  Why?  Because...  Exfoliating removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which makes your face look brighter.  It helps your moisturizer penetrate more deeply into your skin; and over the long term, can boost collagen production, reducing the signs of aging.  Rosehip Seed Powder + Cleansing Oil is my new favorite way to exfoliate. It's super simple, and incredibly good for your skin thanks to the anti-aging benefits of rosehip, and of...

Easy Lip Scrub DIY

One of the things that I LOVE about DIY beauty is that you don't have to buy a lot of useless products. Whenever someone asks me if I make a lip scrub, my answer is, A) You need to buy my lip balm cause it actually works, then B) Just make a scrub yourself! It's so easy!  Seriously. Pick any exfoliant, mix it with oil, and rub it on your lips. Boom.  Done. Lately I've been loving rosehip seed powder as my go to scrub. In the event that my lips get chapped, (pretty rare because I apply lip balm...

Stefanie's Skincare Diary: Part 2

Hi!  Are you ready to hear how I washed my face all week? So exciting, right?! Ha.  I've been taking down notes of everything I did to care for my skin this week, (actually, this will be for last week, the week of January 23rd, AKA the darkest week in recent American history.) In addition to politics, I've also been thinking about why it is that I do everything I do to my face. What are my skincare concerns? My goals?  Truthfully, I don't have many concerns. While I've struggled with clogged pores, oily skin, breakouts, and freaking out about...

Matcha Mask DIY

Finally - I'm getting to share one of my favorite (and ridiculously easy) skincare routines with you today! You're going to LOVE it.  BEHOLD:  The Matcha Mask!  Ok, first of all... let's talk about matcha. If you're not familiar, matcha powder is a finely ground whole green tea leaf that has been sipped in ceremonial Japanese and Chinese tea ceremonies for centuries. It's an acquired, grassy taste, which I personally happen to love. It's known for being a superfood that's full of antioxidants and for giving a caffeine boost without the buzz and crash of a cup of coffee.  It's also...
