Welcome to the last official post of 2022! I shared this in my weekly newsletter but wow having a kid really does crazy things to your sense of time. 2022 has simultaneously been the longest and fastest year of my life.
I feel like I’m only just now getting back into a good groove with my skincare and makeup. The first few months with a newborn were a doozy and both just fell onto the back-burner. But now, skincare and makeup are my escape from mom life.
My start of day makeup routine makes me feel like a whole human even though Sydney couldn’t care less and my end of day skincare routine helps me unwind from the very long days.
We’ve moved past the days of self-preservation and back into self-care territory. Along the way I’ve found some really great products that I’m excited to share.
Also of note: Almost everything on the Best of Clean Beauty 2021 list I am still using. There were just so many great finds last year! So these are really just add-ons to last year.
For a full recap of previous year’s posts check these out:
Best of Clean Beauty 2022
01. True Botanicals Calm Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm
My favorite product of 2022! I have a lot of cleansing balms I love and this one definitely needs to be added to the list. It truly does melt away everything on your skin.
02. True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster
I wanted to add vitamin C to my skincare routine but didn't necessarily have to buy a whole new serum (I'm still loving the evolve hyaluronic serum). This allows me to just add a vitamin c boost without replacing a product I already love.
03. Lovinah Dragon's Blood Stem Cell Soothing Balm
This oil/moisturizing is incredible! It's on the heavy side but perfect for Minnesota winters. Definitely an oil to add to your list.
04. TOK Beauty Clear Brow Mascara
I love my Ere Perez clear brow gel but it doesn't have crazy strong hold if you're looking for more of that feathery brow look. This definitely brings the hold and keeps my brows in place for when I'm trying to achieve that volume.
05. Kosas Airbrow (Medium Brown)
I love the Kosas Airbrow (I had their clear gel on last year's list!) but their clear gel was sold out for a while so I decided to try their tinted brow gel. I'm so glad I did because it is the perfect shade match and goes on so smooth! I haven't found much success with tinted brow gels until this one.
06. ILIA Fullest Volumizing Mascara
I'm a huge fan of ILIA's mascaras and while I didn't love this one on the first few applications, something magical must have happened because now it is a favorite. So fair warning it may need a little time before you fall in love with it!
07. Westman Atelier Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer
I have been looking for a good warm-toned bronzer ever since Lily Lolo discontinued theirs! This is the PERFECT warm shade! I find I don't even need blush because it warms up my skin and makes me look tanned even in the winter. I know it's an investment but it's so worth it.I have it in the shade Coup de Soleil.
08. Kosas Feathery Cloud Set
The perfect setting powder! I've been on the lookout for a powder this great for a long time and Kosas pulled through. It gives a matte look without being cakey and the product doesn't go flying everywhere when you put it on a brush!
09. Each & Every Deodorant
I wrote a whole post about my love for Each & Every Deodorant. While I don't think it's necessarily perfect for everyone, I have had a lot of success with it and love the White Chamomile + Bergamot scent (limited edition).
