Skincare + Beauty


The more I dive deep into my self-care and wellness, the more I consciously align with the brands I consume. At least that is what I've experienced this past year. Since I started using these amazing organic skincare brands and consciously consuming foods + supplements, I can proudly say my skin is back to a healthy glow. I use these green beauty products on a daily and weekly basis and sharing to promote consciousness in the products we consume.


Stumbled upon this brand while I was perusing the green beauty section of Anthropologie. I was attracted to the minimal design of the bottle, but ultimately loved the scent of this gentle cleanser. It's certified organic and the ingredients (aloe, flower extract, oils, etc) are anti-inflammatory and hydrating. 


I love this mineral sea mist from this Malibu based organic, vegan skincare brand, OSEA. I spritz this on after cleansing, to prep my skin before adding my moisturizer and oils. I discovered this brand after they gifted me a set of their products last year. The family owned and run business has a beautiful range of seaweed and natural ingredients. I have this mist in both the full and travel sizes.. so I'm obviously obsessed and highly recommend!


I've been using oils instead of cream-based moisturizers and it's so nourishing for my dry/sensitive skin. I LOVE the scent of the combination of superfood and medicinal herb ingredients in this serum (Argon, Jojoba, Carrot seed, Rose, Lavender & more). I add about a few drops and sometime mix it in with my moisturizer at night if I feels extra dry. I wake up with skin that feels soft, rejuvenated and glowy!


Another oil I've incorporated into my skin regimen is the Beauty Booster in Grapefruit from THE BUFF (avail at Urban Outfitters). Met the lovely owner, Jasmine, at Fashion Week years ago. We've both similarly merged our own fashion + wellness journeys into our current careers. So proud of her for launching this amazing brand of customizable skincare. I love the simplicity of her products and she has the beautiful skin to prove that it works!


I am such a minimalist when it comes to make-up. What I consider as "wearing a lot of make-up" involves less than 5 products (eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, bb cream w/ SPF and sometimes blush). This CC cream is kind of amazing. Besides it reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it evens out my complexion and doubles as sun protection with SPF 30. This is minimal make-up user's dream.


Since this post is more a conscious, holistic way of promoting skincare + beauty, I also included my new favorite supplement company, CARE/OF. I am THAT GIRL that has a dedicated cabinet with 12+ bottles of vitamins and supplements. Since I travel a lot and never have the same schedule (or am at the same place each week), it's kind of inconvenient to carry around all my supplements. I've tried bagging individual pills in ziplock bags.. the pills get crushed and mixed up in the bottom of my bag. What I LOVE about Care Of Vitamins, besides the cute customized little packet that says "MADE FOR KRISTINE" is the fact that they make it easy for me to take my supplements. The packets are beautifully designed, small enough to carry in my purse and easy to locate. Also, it's customized to what I need..according to the test I took on their site. Currently taking: PROBIOTIC BLEND (for gut health), MAGNESIUM (for sleep), RHODIOLA (for stress), & VEGGIE OMEGA (for overall health). Use code: KRISTINE50 for 50% off your first month of vitamins at TAKECAREOF.COM
