20 Jan Clean Beauty
I just got back from Denver and I found the most amazing store for clean beauty products. From makeup, to skin care, to hair care they have the most incredible assortment of clean beauty I have seen. The store is called Aillea and was founded by Kathryn Dickinson, a former NYC cosmetics executive whose mission is to provide high-performing clean beauty products free of toxic and endocrine disrupting chemicals.
Our skin is our largest organ and the products we put on our skin are absorbed directly in to the blood stream (think about how a hormone or nicotine patch work). I wear lots of makeup and I’m constantly slathering my skin with different creams. That’s why I am on a mission to clean up my beauty routine. Here are some of my favorite products that I found at Aillea. They are available both in store and online.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush – the packaging alone (refillable silver compacts) makes this product a dream. But the cream to powder formula blends in to the most beautiful tints that can be built to a more dramatic cheek. Lovely is my personal favorite shade.Kosås Weightless Lip Color – New on the scene – this line has 8 flattering shades in sleek packaging with a full coverage and long lasting formula. For the perfect Nude pink I love the shade Rosewater.
Agent Nateur Deodorant – This one has stood the test of hot yoga, and sweaty NYC summers. It is the gold standard of clean deodorants.
MUN No. 11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner – Age defying ingredients including Rosewater, Aloe, Prickly Pear and Willow Bark leave your skin hydrated and polished.
Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner: Developed by NYC stylist Fabian Lliguin – it was designed to be high performing. I have fine hair so I like to mix the formulas and use the volumizing shampoo and the regular conditioner.
