Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

Everything by Drunk Elephant. I switched my skincare over to their products this past year and haven't looked back! Smiley Happy 

The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

Just like @marydiva, Bite was the first clean brand I remember being introduced to. I was 21, working at Sephora, and a brand rep came in and everything she said just clicked with me. At 26, I've since went vegeterian (leaning towards Vegan) and ingredients are super important to me. Farmacy, Youth to the People, Herbivore and Pureology are also brands that I gravitate towards. I'm still working on switching my color routine over, I'm still into the "fun" brands but as long as it's cruelty free I can usually get on board.

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

@Nickelliebear1 ...your story sounds like mine. (Never worked in Sephora though, which is probably a good thing for my wallet.) I started with skincare and have since worked really hard to move over to clean makeup.

 

One brand I was super hesitant about but am actually in love with is ILIA. Their cream blushes, bronzer, and highlighter are honestly amazing. Love the mascara too (and I am suuuuuper picky).

 

I am now patiently (and not so patiently) working on finishing up other makeup sets so I can switch everything over. I have yet to try Lilah B, but that line looks great too. RMS is hit or miss with me, but their new powder blushes look intriguing...

RMS beauty is my fav makeup brand. Amazing cream products for aging skinthat nourish the skin. Also like some Origins, Josie, Kora, Kopari, and Tata products. I still find you really need to know your and read ingredients...like most brands have some products that are green and others have super long ingredient lists. Wish Sephora carried Sundari too. So glad Sephora has expanded this area. There's a super cute set Sephora Collection just released that has a rollerball with funnel that is filled with rose quartz that you can add your oils to.

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

I fell in love with Briogeo's haircare line and I've seen a huge difference in the way my hair feels. My favorite products have to be the BRIOGEO - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Shampooand the BRIOGEO - B. Well Organic + Cold-Pressed 100% Castor Oil.I also looove the OLAPLEX - Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 it's my go-to hair treatment and totally worth the splurge.

 

 

For makeup I'm obsessed with Cover Fx and for skincare I enjoy Ole Henriksen, Indie Lee, Origins and Omorovicza. Plus, my ultimate favorite body bronzer Vita Liberata Body Blur also has the Sephora Clean seal (can't seem to tag it for some reason).

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

I have been loving for several months Rahua beauty hair products. RAHUA - Voluminous Shampoo . They have natural ingredients and works perfectly on my fine hair. It doesnt lather  but it feels clean after I have rinsed. It amazes me how much body and shine it gives my hair after drying. It's great! Smiley Happy Got this in a Play box and purchased the full size as soon as I was done. 

 

Other clean brands I love are Drunk Elephant and Biossance of course Smiley Happy Staples for those brands are the  BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer and DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Serum 

 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

I am a HUGE K-beauty fan so I am really glad I can get some of my favorites from sephora. Big fan of Glow Recipe, Kopari, Farmacy, Bite, Coola

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

Growing up, I was a Bite Beauty addict! I think having "clean" beauty products for your lips is especially important, especially when you think about how much of our lip products end up getting transferred onto our food and drinks and ultimately end up being ingested. 

The older I get, the more I recognize the importance of clean beauty products for my skin and hair care routines. I have sensitive, inflammation prone skin, and so it's important that I know exactly what ingredients I am putting into and on my body. 

Some of my favorite clean beauty superstars are: 

1. Farmacy's Green Clean Makeup Cleansing Balm: Ya'll, I could RAVE about this cleanser all day. It smells sooooo good, and just a little warmed up in my hands takes off my entire face of makeup, even stubborn eye makeup! Oil cleansing with makeup-blams like Farmacy's has been amazing for restoring my natural skin barrier to healthy levels, and I didn't realize what I was missing out on! I'm super happy that I got a sample of this in a Play box - I wouldn't have tried it otherwise and now it's one of my all time favorites. 

2. Origin's Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff: This has been a long time favorite of mine since I first promised myself I would try eye cream! I love how the caffeine depuffs my eyes (I have naturally hooded lids) and this eye cream brings down puffyness that makes a WORLD of difference for my eye makeup! You can actually see my eyelid, ya'll! It's a game changer. 

3. Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask: My skin has never been so baby soft! I really, really love this sleeping mask. 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

My favorites are Drunk Elephant, Farmacy, Volition beauty, Kora Organics, and Kopari😊

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

Some of my favorite clean beauty brands are Caudalie, Drunk Elephant, Bite Beauty, Supergoop!, Kora Organics, and By Rosie Jane. I haven’t had much of a chance to dive in to some of the newer clean brands Sephora is carrying, but I’m interested in trying some of the makeup products! 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

A lot of my favorite skincare brands have the "clean" label, like Tatcha; Youth to the People; Glow Recipe; Farmacy; and Drunk Elephant.

 

I have also really been enjoying perfumes from Clean Reserve. 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

I've been loving RMS products the last couple of years, particularly RMS BEAUTY - Lip2Cheekand the highlighters. I've also been wanting to check out more products from Ilia, since I also really like ILIA - Multi-Stick.

 

I'm fairly happy with my skincare routine and haven't tried many of the clean beauty brands, but I do love FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream with Echinacea GreenEnvy™.

 

Edit: totally forgot to mention one of my favorite skincare products ever. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ 25% AHA + 2% BHA Mask. The stuff is pure magic. 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

RMS Living Luminizers are the best for a natural dewy glow. I love all the shades. <333

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

Some of my favorites brands are Omorovicza, Mahalo, Odacite, Intelligent Nutrients and The Body Deli.

 

 

I LOVE Lavanila vanilla + water for peace deodorant but Sephora seems to be phasing out the brand... there's barely anything left. I also love Consonant HydrExtreme (HG) and FARMACY - Coconut Gel Sheet Mask - Hydrating.  I'm sure there is plenty more but can't think of them at the moment. Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

oh no, really!? Smiley Sad well thankfully ulta has them... Smiley Wink

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

I’m finding the definition of Clean Beauty a bit confusing. I feel like “Formaldehyde Releasing agents” was just thrown in there to take up space. Sephora carries absolutely nothing that would fall into this category. There are plenty of ingredients that when HEATED convert to a formaldehyde gas, while THOSE ingredient may be present in some products carried by Sephora, their purpose is in cosmetic nature. Formaldehyde releasing agents are actually banned in Canada anyway and really only found in Keratin Smoothing treatments in some US states. Hence my confusion. Unless this occurs in the manufacturing process of cosmetics and not the post consumer, then I understand. 

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

@KatieBT mine are from Origins and Tatcha

Re: The Best of Clean Beauty: What Are Your Faves?

yayyyy!  this is mostly what I use anyway. Smiley Tongue

 

my fave brands are andalou naturals, dermae, mychelle, pacifica, alba...

 

I like to wash my hair with baking soda, rinse w/vinegar, and add a lil coconut oil.

 

I like ellis brooklyn perfumes, and lavanila is also a nice brand (I've been wanting to try their deodorant and body wash), but I'm not sure why they're not in the clean perfume section, since it's clearly labeled clean.
