Favorite Clean Skincare Products
It’s no secret that I can be a bit of a product hoarder when it comes to skincare and beauty. I am constantly trying new things to optimize (and indulge) my skincare and makeup routines. I keep a list on my phone of products and brands that catch my interest (I usually learn about them from my favorite beauty gurus on Instagram and Youtube), and then I’ll “add to cart” when I’m ready to replace a comparable product. This helps keep me from going too crazy on the redundant products.
I’m working with Grove Collaborative (more on them below) and they carry a great selection of clean beauty and natural skincare products — a few of which were already on my list! Here are my favorites:
One Love Organics Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil: This is the first step in my evening skincare routine. I pump a quarter size amount of the cleansing oil in my palm, warm it up a bit in my hands and then rub onto my face to dissolve my makeup. It’s really soft and calming, and the smell is divine. It melts my makeup away (even mascara and eyeliner!), then I rinse with water before my cleanser. You don’t need to use an additional makeup remover, or wipes or cotton pads!
Weleda Skin Food Ultra Rich Cream: This brand has a cult following for a reason. Their skin food moisturizer is super hydrating and creamy. I have another tube on my desk to keep my hands hydrated during the work day. It has a fragrant scent — it kind of smells like juniper and mint. I find it to be a calming and fresh fragrance.
Indie Lee Stem Cell Serum: While this is a higher priced product, if you’re battling dry/aging skin, it’s a life saver! I layer this serum under my moisturizer and it’s fabulous. My skin is noticeably brighter and more hydrated. It’s a 30ml bottle, and you only need to use a few drops at a time — so it will last you awhile!
OSEA Undaria Algae Body Oil: This is my first body oil product and ooooo girl I am sold! I love that it’s hydrating and soft and gives my legs a subtle glow — and also makes my tattoos POP. I like that it doesn’t require a lot of rubbing, it just kind of melts into your skin. It’s a very fragrant product (it smells kind of like candy) which doesn’t bother me, but I know some folks are very sensitive to product scents.

About Peach Bars
I first discovered haircare bars last year, and the obsession has only intensified since. When I saw that Grove Collaborative carried the Peach line, I was super excited to try them. We swapped our bottled body wash for soap bars years ago, but the shampoo/conditioner bar thing is newer to my shower routine — and with all new product discoveries, I’m always looking to try different brands to find the best one. I love the colors and shapes of the Peach bars — they have a few varieties depending on your hair needs (strengthening, moisturizing, and volumizing) and they have skincare bars as well! A few more factos about the Peach personal care line:
- 1 Peach shampoo bar = up to two 8.5-ounce shampoo bottles
- 1 Peach conditioner bar = up to three 8.5-ounce conditioner bottles
- Each hair care bar lasts, on average, for 100 washes
- 100% plastic free and cruelty free
- Free of parabens, phthalates, silicones, synthetic fragrance
- The packaging is 100% recycled content paper board (no plastic in the packaging!)
