Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

What's New in Green Beauty?

I thought I'd share some new beauty items that I am enjoying right now!

New {and fabulous} from Jane Iredale

First up, Jane Iredale has a new starter kit! I've long been a Jane Iredale fan and if you're new to the brand, this is a really great way to try their best products before you commit to buying the full sizes.  The new Starter Kit comes in a metallic grey bag and comes with deluxe travel sizes of Amazing Base loose (for a more radiant look) and Pure Pressed Powder (for a more polished, semi-matte look), Pommist facial mist with pomegranate, Smooth Affair Primer, and a makeup brush.

*Gluten free
*Foundations have the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation. These are the ONLY face bases I will use in the summer, in fact!

Each set has a $77 value and is available for $55.

As an FYI to my local readers, Jane Iredale is now available in Brighton at the Michael Spitale Salon on Monroe Avenue! While you are there shopping for makeup, do treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure with Elizabeth!

Also new--

Jamberry Nails made an appearance once again at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York as part of the Ann Yee Collection's show. As seen in Nail It Magazine, too! What's great is the wraps used in Ann Yee's Fashion Week appearance, Modern Chic, are available right now at Jamberry Nails for the rest of February.

An {buzzworthy new-to-me} bath & shower gel to consider

Since I will not be purchasing more 100% Pure products in the near future, I need a new "staple" in the shower. Enter Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Shower Gel. I prefer this to another natural body wash I used to use (Nourish), as the consistency of this one is superior.


A portion of the proceeds of this product are donated by NYR to Save the Bees.  What I love about this product:  you only need a dime sized amount for the whole body, has a nice lather without SLS, feels moisturizing, smells SO comforting with a gentle honey-orange scent. The scent comes purely from the natural essential oils, as this is free of artificial fragrances.
