You guuuuuuuys. It’s been a while. The blog was something that had to be put on the back burner, when quarantine started and my kids were all home with e-learning. But, I am BACK and excited to share some favorites I have discovered over the past months.
First things first (and I KNOW we are all sick of wearing and talking about masks) but this is life right now, so I couldn’t write this without mentioning my favorites masks I have found.
Hygiene Hero just nails it, ya’ll. They JUST launched Version 2 last week! I thought version 1 was fabulous, so when they reached out and let me know they were coming out with an even better mask I was so excited! Here is the breakdown of why they are so much better than the other masks I have tried:
- Inner Layer: Independent lab tested antibacterial, odor-resistant and sweat resistant eyelet fabric infused with silver, charcoal and ceramic compounds.
- Fabric pre-treated with silver compounds proven to be antibacterial
- Silver is a naturally occurring element. It releases silver ions and creates an environment that continues to kills germs once they are on the mask, providing extra protection from contamination.
- Middle Layer: Non-woven cotton for extra filtration
- Outer Layer: Waterproof nylon/PU fabric to prevent droplets penetration
- 3-D Design with plenty of breathing room and forms to most face shapes
- Completely adjustable & flexible straps for ear comfort
- Comes in a nice sealable semi-transparent bag for safe storage between wear to prevent cross-contamination
- Currently available in Adult size in 6 colors:
- Dark shades: Classic Black, Midnight Blue, Olive Green
- Bright shades: Royal Blue, Hot Pink
- Light shades: Dolphin Blue
**My kids wear these to school daily and do not complain- which to me is the ultimate test. The design makes them much roomier and easier to breathe in. **
They have a promo going on where you can buy 4 masks and get ONE FREE

Second, is the Hand Sanitizer. I have a few brands I trust on this- and please, please do your research before slathering this on yourself and your kiddos multiple times a day. The FDA has issued warnings on many brands already and I am sure there are more to come on dangerous ingredients that are in the sanitizers on the shelves.
Here are the brands I trust when it comes to sanitizer:
Dr Brite They make a gel in a few sizes, which is easy to send with kids to school and a larger size you can gift to teachers for the classroom. They also make wipes as well! Amazing brand, I trust when it comes to clean products.
Hygiene Hero: Again, they nailed this formula- its actually hydrating and not drying! It is a spray, so if you prefer that- it really is a great product.
Puracy: I love this brand and have met the owner myself. I trust their process and their products to be vetted and good for you! They just created their sanitizing products and I am so excited about them.
Everyone/EO brand: I use this brand for so many body products and I love their sanitizers as well. Great pricepoint too!
Ok, next up let’s talk SAFER HAIR CARE. Proooobably one of the things I get asked about most. It’s trial and error, ya’ll.
I have been truly impressed with Rahua‘s products over the last 2 months of using them. I have the volume shampoo/conditioner, the UV Protection leave in conditioner, and the Freestyle Texturizer. All of them have been a WIN for me! I really encourage you to try out this brand, they have a TON of products to choose from. Next on my list to try is the volumizing spray.
Next are these fall candles I just got from GOLD + IVY. And yes…its still summer weather here in Alabama, but STILL! They are so delightful and a clean formula.

Next up is this Mascara….you guys know I am always testing new clean mascara’s because I like to have options to suggest to people. Mascara is extremely personal, and not a one size fits all product. My friend, and clean beauty guru Suzi, from Gurl Gone Green tried this one and loved it so I ordered it right away!
Its called Erins Faces Matcha Mascara,
and the formula is super clean and good for your lashes! It lengthens, volumizes and treats your lashes without smudging! Definitely worth a try if you haven’t found a clean mascara you love yet!
A few of my other clean mascara faves are Lily Lolo Big Lash, Honest Co, and Ilia.
I found a new Body Brand I LOVE. Its called Necessaire,
and I am obsessed with their body exfoliator especially. I bought the trio with the body wash, body lotion and the exfoliator and they are all SO GOOD. The lotion is super hydrating without being greasy at all. The body wash is a super thick consistency, which I actually like- seems like it lathers really well for a safer formula too and its super hydrating. I really have been impressed with all three products and cannot wait to try some other things from them in the future.
If you buy the body trio, you save $20 on the set.
Last, is the Beautycounter Brow Gel–
Beautycounter has a new and improved formula for their brow gel and it was relaunched in August! AND since your brows are one of the only things people see these days, it’s a great investment in your routine. I think brows make all the difference, and this brow gel is just bar none. It’s made with conditioning plant-based waxes and butters. Flake-proof, foolproof, and easy to use, a tapered applicator allows for precision while you are applying it and it gives you fuller but NATURAL looking brows! I wear the shade dark, but there are 4 shades plus a clear, if you don’t need tint but you just need hold.
Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Jojoba Oil: condition brow hairs to keep them soft and flexible.
Carnauba Wax and Sunflower Seed Wax: add structure to help define, groom, and condition brow hairs.
Elderberry Extract: a superfruit extract rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants that protect and condition.
September 3-8th Beautycounter is offering a FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE of $125 as well.
You will get a Melting Body Balm- so good for dry skin! Comes in a manoi scent, which is a gardenia dipped in coconut- delightful!
Let me know if you ever need help shade matching.
That’s all for this month, ladies but I plan on being consistent with sharing my monthly favorites with you all.
