Best All-Around Green Beauty Picks

Memorial Day Weekend is almost upon us and Aillea is jumpstarting the fun today with 15% off your total purchase with the code memorial2019! I thought it would be apropos to share my very favorite products at Aillea with you today so you can get a nice little discount. Promotion is already happening (May 23-27), so let’s get this party started.

Innersense Inner Peace Whipped Cream Texturizer – Just started using this texturizer this year and I am in love! If you are looking for that last finishing step to create a little definition and texture, this is for you. Bonus that it smells so dang good.

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush – You know I’ve talked about these blushes before in detail, but let me just remind you that Sun Touched and Blossoming are SO GOOD for spring and summer. Sunkissed is my summer go-to staple and I get compliments all the time.

RMS Blush Brush – This is the ONLY brush I will use for cream blushes. It creates the most lovely, diffused glow without any obvious stripes or heaviness. You will not be looking like a clown when you use this brush.

Olio e Osso Tinted Balms – Lit from within transparent glow. I have so many shades of these balms and they are the easiest thing to apply ever. You don’t even need a brush with these…just swipe on your cheeks and blend with your finger. I wrote about my favorite shades here.

Vapour AER Deodorant – As we are headed into the summer months, are you happy with your deodorant? The AER deodorant has no competition in my eyes. It is by far the best deodorant in green beauty and I’ve been using it for years.

Lily Lolo Pressed Bronzer in Honolulu – Bronzers make you look like a cheeto? Not this one – it’s brown, not orange, and makes my face look like I’ve spent a weekend in Tulum. Must-have.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser – Oh, how I love this exfoliating cleanser. I’ve tried to move on, but I always come back to using this in the mornings. The perfect, gentle exfoliator for all skin types.

Maya Chia Supercritical Chia Oil – – I’m not even going to start with this one. Just google search “whoorl maya chia oil” and get comfortable. Have been using this every day for years.

Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara – Sammi from Hullo Sam turned me onto this mascara and I’ve used nothing else for the past two months. Long, full lashes with absolutely no flaking or smudging.

Clove + Hallow Conceal and Correct Concealer – Love love love this concealer. As I enter my mid-forties, I’ve noticed many concealers creep into my fine lines and generally make the undereye area look dry and meh. This one does not – I wear shade 2 for brightening under my eyes and shade 3 on the rest of my face for blemishes and/or imperfections.

Kosas Lipstick – Best formula in green beauty and how they make the shades so wearable for so many skin tones, I’ll never know. I am wearing all the shades in this post.

Kjaer Weis KW Red Lipstick – Kosas is my all-time favorite lipstick brand, BUT if I had to pick one lipstick to wear for the rest of my life, it would 100% be KW Red by Kjaer Weis. It is just the most classic strawberry red I’ve ever seen. Here I am wearing it. Always feel like a million bucks when I wear this shade.

(A few more must-haves in my book but aren’t included in the 15% off promotion are Kypris Antioxidant Dew, Josh Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator, May Lindstrom The Problem Solver.)

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

    Thanks for the roundup! I’ve been waiting for Memorial Day sales to pull the trigger on many of these! First – you are SO right on the Vapour deodorant. I would have never found it without your recommendation and it’s the best! Second – Does the coconut in the concealer not cause issues for you? Like you, coconut in other products has been an issue for me so I’ve been hesitant to try this one despite the rave reviews I’ve heard about it….

      Such a great question! No, it doesn’t clog the skin around my eyes at all…or really anywhere because I use it around my nose and on other areas too. I think you should try it! (And YAY re: Vapour deodorant!)
