Eco Lips 5-in-1 Beauty Balm

ECO LIPS
LIP + CHEEK TINTS
Evcurlgurl.com

My beauty routine is quick and simple: done in five minutes or less. Seriously. My hair however, is another story (washing, detangling, styling, etc...) but beauty-wise, I keep it simple: I wash my face, moisturize, SPF - mascara and lips (gloss or color). So when I heard from reps for Eco Lip's Lip + Cheek Tints ($8.99 each - set $26.97) about their multi-tasking beauty balm, I was interested in test driving these 5-in-1 beauty balms, and had them sent over. 
Evcurlgurl.com

What is it? A multi-tasking beauty balm that works as a blush, eye shadow, lip color, a contouring & highlighter tool. I received their three shades: Nude, Pink and Red, and was absolutely impressed with the hydrating formula and the perfect pop of natural color - perfect for my on-the-go beauty routine (I'm always rushing). 

Formula: Lightweight, vegan and cruelty-free tints, that are made for ALL skin tones, complimenting every beauty look. Eco Lips uses organic jojoba, coconut oil, organic and fair-trade cocoa butter, and sunflower seed wax. 

Evcurlgurl.com


I love how smoothly it glides over my lips and cheeks, and even the scent and taste. All Eco Lips products are made with wind power offsets, fair trade, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. As a B-corp, they take customer satisfaction, product effectiveness, and good-for-the-world ethos seriously.


More About Eco Lips
The story behind the Eco Lips brand is essentially a love story. As the creators of the first USDA-certified original organic lip balm, the family-owned company has expanded their line over time to encompass lifestyle and beauty products. All Eco Lips products are made with wind power offsets, fair trade, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. As a B-corp, they take customer satisfaction, product effectiveness, and good-for-the-world ethos seriously.

NEW Sol de Janeiro Launches

WHAT'S NEW FROM 
SOL DE JANEIRO?
Evcurlgurl.com

I'm back with my all-time favorite skin care brand - Sol de Janeiro - and their recently launched products. It's no secret that I have been obsessed with Sol's Cheirosa '62 fragrance since it's debut a little over four years ago, so when reps sent me their newest additions, I fell head-over-heels! For those asking "Hey Ev, what does Cheirosa mean?" Well, in Brazil it means to smell irresistible - think: incredibly delicious!

Evcurlgurl.com


I waited a long time for their Cheirosa '62 Candle. It smells absolutely AH-MAZING, and if it's even possible, better than the bum bum cream! Also, new? Sol de Janeiro's Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream launched again. TWICE the size of their regular/larger jar. I snagged one last year before it disappeared (sold out almost immediately) and I still have it.

ARM & HAMMER Invisible Sprays

BEAT THE HEAT WITH ARM & HAMMER 
INVISIBLE POWDER SPRAYS

Evcurlgurl.com

With this unbearable heat and humidity, it seems that there's nothing you can do to stop the sweat and suffering. While I may not be able to help with the suffering (gotta push through it, a few more days - stay cool), I do have something that will definitely help beat the sweat. Arm & Hammer reps send me both products to test, and I took my time thoroughly testing. I used them daily for my 6:00 a.m. sweat sessions at the gym (think hour-long, HIGH intensity cardio. Yep!) And don't worry, both Arm & Hammer Invisible Spray Powders are talc-free, with NO white mess. 
Evcurlgurl.com

Even comes in extremely handy in this jungle-like humidity. Arm & Hammer Invisible Spray Powder BODY is heaven sent when sprayed on your body (back, under boobs), ESPECIALLY when put to the test underground in the NYC Subway platforms, where the temperature seems to be set to hell. Worked like a charm. I use the foot spray in my gym sneakers, and have yet to face the unpleasant sweat funk. Major points scored. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Where skincare is concerned, I'm front and center - so it's no surprise that I joined Palmer's brand for a new product launch event last April when invited, and checked out their NEW Skin Success GLOW line at MNDFL (10 E. 8th Street, NYC). All beauty guru's in attendance enjoyed a relaxing 20 minute meditation session, perfect to help get us glowing from within and learn all about Palmer's new skincare launches with Dr. Valerie M. Harvey, Dermatologist.

GLOWING thanks to Palmer's and this cool mirror

I have been using the GLOW Water Lily Face Cream since late April, and can honestly tell you that my skin has never looked BETTER. I noticed that all the uneven skin around my nose/mouth area evened out; giving me even more radiant skin. Sheet masks are part of my Sunday Skin Serenity ritual, when I relax and gear up for the work week. 

Evcurlgurl.com

Not that I ever wear foundation or concealer, but I have more and more people asking me "WHAT are you using on your skin Ev?" And this is it. #GlowWithPalmers

Herbal Essences & PETA

HERBAL ESSENCES SULFATE-FREE
CRUELTY-FREE & PETA APPROVED

Evcurlgurl.com

Herbal Essences has long been one of my favorite shampoo and conditioner, and things just got better with two major news: 1. The launch of their first sulfate free collections earlier this year. Herbal Essences became the first mass hair care brand to become EWG VERIFIED for their sulfate-free botanical shampoos. 2. They've also joined PETA - earning a spot on their "Beauty without Bunnies" list ๐Ÿ‡(see below). Earlier this month I received official mailing from PETA directly, confirming the news, along with a sample of an Herbal Essences shampoo. 

Evcurlgurl.com

P&G sent me the NEW Herbal Essences Honey & Vitamin B and Birch Bark Sulfate Free Shampoos and Conditioners (Note: the Honey & Vitamin B are my fave of the two).

NEW Sol de Janeiro Sun Care

SOL DE JANEIRO BUM BUM SOL
OIL SPF 30 MY SOL STICK SPF 50
Evcurlgurl.com
NEW #SOLvibes - sent by reps!

Get ready for some serious SOL vibes. Sol de Janeiro finally launched new additions with SPF. I'm seriously obsessed with anything SOL Bum Bum (pronounced boom boom) thanks to their Cheirosa ’62 Brazilian scent, and of course, SPF. Why? It's no secret that I'm hardcore into sun safety (think, skincare and anti-aging) and I never leave the house without SPF, so when I can have the best of both worlds - Sol Brazilian Bum Bum + SPF - I'm SOLd! ๐Ÿ˜Ž My newest faves from the brand: NEW Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil SPF 30 and My Sol Stick SPF 50

Evcurlgurl.com

If you don't know, SOL products are made with Brazilian Body expertise, "they worship skin, while loving the sun" and they care about our planet: Sol de Janeiro never uses coral-damaging ingredients in their SPF products. Aside from smelling deliciously addictive, I could not get over the cute, tiny surfboard floating inside the bottle - remember the surfboard spatula that accompanied the Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream?
