LITE+CYCLE FOUNDER - KRISTI’s TOP TEN!
Because of how intense I am about the purity, ethics, and transparency of our products, people often come to me for advice on what beauty products to buy for themselves. I thought it would be fun to open my beauty cabinet and see what was there and share it! I hope you enjoy.
1. SALT & STONE DEODORANT
All I can say is, after much trial and error including giving up on deodorant all together! I found one I like. It works, it smells good, and it doesn’t leave weird stuff under my armpits. Get it from the brand here.
2. EREWHON HAND SANITIZER
Of all the hand sanitizers I have used this year this is my favorite. It has a nice non-sticky consistency and the eucalyptus adds a great scent, as well as natural anti-bacterial properties. You may have to go into the store for this one. Runner up is here if you want to purchase something online.
3. RMS "UN" COVER-UP
I admit, I have strayed from this staple to try and find one that doesn’t require digging my finger in the pot - BUT I always come back. This is hands down the best pure, clean and natural concealer. It doesn’t get stuck in the wrinkles, and sinks into the delicate skin around the eyes nicely. It is moisturizing and helps hide those pesky dark circles. I use it daily and don’t even mind if I forget to wash it off. Get it from the brand.
4. BEAUTY COUNTER THINK BIG MASCARA
Natural non-toxic mascaras are not always the best at staying put, but this one doesn’t disappoint. It is not clumpy or fake looking either. It gives your lashes an extra boost without feeling like they will fall off at the end of the day. Get it from the brand.
5. L+C LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL CANDLE
Beauty is all around us, and in us. I believe we must nurture our home, our heart and spirit to feel beautiful. That is why I consider a candle part of my beauty regiment. The LITE+CYCLE Lavender is my favorite. It can transform my mood and stuffy room in 15 minutes. Get it from us here.
6. CLOVE + HALLOW LIP VELVET
This is a big impact bold lip color that stays on for hours and won’t poison you with lead and nasty additives. I am in love with the Fiesta color for a big mood, bold lips and of course keeping it clean. Get it from the brand here.
7. MOON JUICE ACID POTION
I was surprised to love this product the way I do. I bought it on a whim and have been so pleased with the results. I use it at the end of the day on a dirty or clean face and let it do its thing. It tingles, and clears away dirt. I have noticed a smoother texture on my skin after a month of daily use. Also, I adore the packaging. Get from the brand here.
8. WELDA SKIN FOOD
Original Ultra Rich Cream - Hands down the most nourishing hand cream. It is super dense and a tad greasy so best to use at night. Make-up artists boast about using it on the face for a dewy look. My face didn’t like that, so I keep it to hands, elbows and toes! Get it from the brand here.
9. JUICE BEAUTY STEM CELL CELLULAR CC CREAM SPF 30
Everyday dang day! This product is a can’t live without for me. It is a daily moisturizer and SPF 30. Because it is tinted it also evens out my skin tone. I love the dewy look it gives and it smells awesome. Get it from the brand here.
10. DR. BRONNER’S LIQUID SOAP
This is a staple in my house. I get the unscented and mix in some essential oils depending on where I am using it. If in the shower, I drop in some rose and sandalwood oil. If as a hand wash I drop in some lavender and peppermint. And, of course unscented is great for washing delicates in the sink. I truly can’t live without this versatile and gentle soap.
