Even though I work in the beauty and wellness industries, I’m not always able to keep up with every single product launch — there are just so many! But over the past few weeks, I’ve been working to find products from both well-known and indie brands so I can continue to grow my collection of products. Below, take a look at a few products I’ve found in the last few weeks and have started to incorporate into my regular routine.
Tone It Up Plant-Based Protein + Greens Powder — Vanilla
You all already know how much I love Tone It Up’s at-home workouts — especially since I’m still sheltering at home — and now I’m a fan of their protein powders too. One I’ve been using a lot is their vanilla-flavored Protein + Greens powder, which is totally vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and is free of the eight major allergens. With 15 grams of protein and almost 20 grams of veggies per serving, it’s the perfect addition to my healthy smoothies for breakfast or post-workout.
Pantene Paraben-Free Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner with Coconut Milk & Jojoba Oil
Summers in LA can be pretty brutal. The hot temps and extreme dryness seriously take a toll on my skin and hair, so I’m so glad that I found this new Pantene Mist Behaving dry conditioner mist. It’s compatible with all hair types and is formulated with hydrating ingredients like coconut milk and jojoba oil to nourish and revive dry, damaged hair on rough days.
Pantene Sulfate-Free Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray with Wild Mint & Melon
With hot summers also comes more sweating, so it’s especially important to keep my hair clean in between washes. Pantene’s new Never Tell dry shampoo has been one of my favorite discoveries this month because it sucks up all of the excess oil in my hair without making it feel crunchy or stiff. Plus, it doesn’t leave any residue so even dark-haired people can use it too.
Playa Monoi Milk Leave-In Conditioner
While in quarantine, I’ve been loving masking my hair every time I wash it, and this Playa Monoi Milk Leave-In Conditioner is perfect for continuing treatment after I get out of the shower. It helps reduce frizz and boost shine, and even heat protects so I can heat style my hair afterwards.
Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream
If your hair is even slightly wavy, you can benefit from adding the Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream into your hair care routine. It contains argan oil to nourish and condition hair, while other (more scientific sounding) ingredients help your hair hold its curls and coat strands to protect from future damage. I use this on damp hair after washing and before styling so that my hair air dries to perfection.
Nyakio Manketti & Mafura Anti-Aging Oil
I always love face oils because of how delicate they are on the skin while still feeling ultra-hydrating. The Nyakio Manketti & Mafura Anti-Aging Oil was just introduced to me this month and I seriously can’t get enough. It’s certified clean at Target and is formulated without any nasties (phthalates, sulfates, parabens, etc.), so I can slather this all over my face totally guilt-free.
Golde Matcha Turmeric Tonic Blend
If you’re not a coffee person but want something that can give you a jolt of caffeine to get you through the day, try out Golde’s Matcha Turmeric Tonic Blend. All you have to do is mix two teaspoons of the powder with water or your milk of choice for an energizing drink that won’t make you crash.
Each & Every Worry-Free Deodorant
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been trying to make the shift to natural deodorant for awhile. One that I’ve landed on and am really loving so far is Each & Every’s Worry-Free Deodorant. It’s made without aluminum, parabens, baking soda, or phthalates, which is perfect for clean beauty lovers like me. Plus, it’s safe for sensitive skin and cruelty-free.
Klur Elements of Comfort Botanical Body Oil
This Klur Elements of Comfort body oil is seriously one of the most luxurious things I’ve ever put on my body. It’s packed full of botanical extracts from flowers like neroli orange blossom, Bulgarian rose, and French lavender, as well as nourishing and organic hempseed, avocado, and grapeseed oils. It makes my skin feel super soft, especially after exfoliating or shaving.
