It's time for another installment of my monthly beauty favorites! This month the products come in at all different price points, so there's something for everybody. I am bringing this post to you a little early because I am having surgery on Monday and won't be able to get it up next week, but I have been trying these products out for over a month. Let me know what you guys are loving this month, if you have tried any of these products, or if there's something you would like me to test out and review down in the comments!
I was so excited to try out some products from Tata Harper because they're based in Vermont. This lip and cheek tint is 100% natural and nontoxic. I tried it in the shade Very Charming, which they describe as a classic petal pink. It's definitely the perfect everyday color for me. It's easily blendable and hydrating which gives your skin a beautiful natural flush. It also looks really good on your lips; I love a good product that multitasks! Also, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, which I know is important to some people. The jars are glass, which is great so product doesn't get contaminated with chemicals in plastic, but I'm always afraid I'm going to drop them because I'm so clumsy so I just have to be extra careful.
I've also been trying out the Tata Harper Very Illuminating Highlighter. I had been on a mission to find a really good, and natural cream highlighter, so I am happy that I found this one. This is a gorgeous pearlescent illuminator. It's creamy, hydrating, and very blendable. It leaves your skin with a natural healthy from the inside glow. I also found it to be very buildable if you are looking for a less subtle look. It's long lasting and wears really well. I can't wait to try more products from Tata Harper. Next on my list is the Natural Lip Treatment Set and some of their skincare products.
You may or may not know this, but I am obsessed with coconut lime scented everything. The first time I opened this lotion I think I stood there for 5 minutes just smelling it out of the bottle. It smells SO good. This lotion absorbs quickly and leaves your skin hydrated without feeling greasy. They have a ton of scents to choose from if coconut lime isn't your thing, but if it is, I highly recommend this one. It's under $13 so it's also budget friendly. Just so you know, all Deep Steep products (including the ones I mention later) are 100% free of synthetics (including fragrance and dyes), vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, paraben free, and cruelty free.
This has easily become my new favorite lipstick. It's the perfect neutral pink. It has no shimmer so it's perfect for everyday. It gives you that "your lips but better" look. Audrey is the swatch on the bottom in the picture below. They say that it is great for all skintones and have some photos on their website that you can see at the link above of it on different skin colors, but I can only vouch for it being a perfect color on myself. The formula has some slip and glides on wonderfully. It doesn't just sit on top of your lips like other natural lipsticks I've tried. It's creamy and hydrating leaving your lips in better condition than when you first applied it. All of the products from Red Apple Lipstick are handcrafted in the USA. They are gluten free, paraben free, allergy free, cruelty free, non-GMO, and corn free so you can feel good about using them.
Unpinkable is the swatch on the top in the image above. This shade seems to have better lasting power than the Audrey, I think because it's a brighter shade and very pigmented so it leaves more of a stain on your lips. It's a wonderful bright pink option if you're not looking for something really bright or if you are looking for a pink with cool undertones this would be a great one to try.
This body butter is thick and creamy but absorbs quickly leaving a beautiful scent on your skin. It's thicker than the body lotion and takes an extra few second to massage into your skin, but I don't mind that. I had recently tried an all natural body butter by another brand that was half the product for triple the price, and it made me laugh. They had very comparable ingredients only the other one had a funky smell. I would never purchase the other one with my own money. This one on the other hand, I want to try in every scent they have available. This would make a great treat for yourself or a gift for someone else.
I got the Honeydew - Spearmint scent which is so refreshing and perfect for summer. It's a unique scent combination that you don't find very often. As is the case with all body mists the scent doesn't last a really long time. However, it's under $10 so you don't have to feel guilty about generously reapplying it. You can see that I've used quite a bit of it over the past month. It's so hard to find a body mist that doesn't contain artificial fragrance and/or colors, so this was an exciting discovery. The body mist also comes in other scents including vanilla, passion fruit guava, lavender chamomile, and grapefruit bergamot. I wish it came in the coconut lime, I would probably buy it in bulk.
