My Foundation + Concealer Routine for Acne-Prone Skin

May 22, 2017

Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation and Illusionist Concealer swatches 115 15 review organic natural green makeup brand hellolindasau
Ever since transitioning into a green beauty routine, I've tried many makeup and skincare items and discovered what worked for my skin and what causes my skin to break out. And there's actually a lot of ingredients found in natural beauty products that trigger my acne.

Firstly, I have combination skin and am very prone to breaking out. I didn't know I was sensitive to coconut-derived, slightly comedogenic, and highly oleic ingredients until this year—full list and details here and here

I had to re-analyze the ingredients in my beauty stash and search for products that wouldn't break me out. Unfortunately, almost all cream or liquid foundations and concealer contained some type of coconut ingredient or oils that were really oleic. Powder foundations, on the other hand, had an average of 3 total ingredients which is perfect for sensitive skin types but I just wasn't a fan of how cakey it gets throughout the day.

My search for the perfect, non-clogging base makeup with a skin-like finish is finally over when I tried the Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation and Illusionist Concealer—the ingredients are safe enough for my blemish-prone, sensitive skin! Both are made with a base of sunflower and castor seed oil which luckily worked well with my skin.

Ingredients: Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Silica, Mica, Essential Oils & Natural Fruit Essences, Wildcrafted Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense) Gum, Organic Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil) Leaf Extract, Organic Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) Leaf Extract [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499)]

Meet my new go-to foundation! Super easy to apply and blends out like a dream. I usually use a dense brush to buff out the foundation. I use the shade 115 which has neutral undertones.

The Luminous Foundation features medium coverage with a weightless feel. As the name implies, it leaves the skin with a natural looking, dewy finish which I'm all about (no cake face here)! Plus, it doesn't accentuate dry patches or fine lines.

Though my t-zone gets oily throughout the day, setting the foundation with a translucent powder helps minimize shine. I find that the foundation lasts 6-8 hours, depending on how oily my skin gets.

I got the concealer in shade 15 which I assumed would be the same color as the foundation in 115 but this concealer is more cool-toned. I noticed that the shades offered cater to neutral and cool-toned complexions rather than warm or olive toned folks like me.

The concealer has light to medium coverage and the same texture and finish as the foundation. I find that I have to layer the concealer to cover up my blemishes and scars. Blending it with a flat concealer brush works the best to preserve the coverage.

When used under the eyes, it doesn't accentuate fine lines but will crease if I don't set it with powder.

Have you tried anything from Vapour Organic Beauty? I've become such a huge fan of their products including their cream blush and highlighter. I even bought a back up of the foundation! If you'd like to see how it works on my actual skin, watch my YouTube video here.

My Beauty Essentials for the Desk

May 15, 2017

My Beauty Desk Essentials hellolindasau grown alchemist hand cream soul sunday the stell honey girl organics
Hello! This week I'm sharing my current beauty essentials I keep on my desk at home and at work! Most of these items I'm sharing are new to me, in terms of brand, but I generally keep something similar with me either on my desk or in my bag at all times.

Side note: A bug bit my middle finger on my left hand on Saturday (boohoo) so it's kind of hard to type so I'll keep it short and simple today.

Lip Balm
First and foremost, let me tell you, my lips need to be coated with lip blam or lipstick at all times. Whenever my lips are naked, they feel extremely dry and uncomfortable so I always keep one on my desk so I can easily reach for it and reapply.

I'm currently loving this one from Honey Girl Organics. It retails for $5.39, contains 96% organic ingredients, and is free from toxic ingredients. Doesn't leave the lips feeling oily or looking greasy.

Aromatherapy Roller
I'm a firm believer of aromatherapy and always keep at least one essential oil with me—most of the times it's lavender because it helps ease headaches, calms my mind, and also relieves stomachaches which I frequently suffer from. 

I got this one recently from The Stell x Soul Sunday which retails for $28. It's a beautiful blend of geranium, rose, and neroli. The girly, rose scent lifts my mood and the act of rolling it against my wrists makes me feel like I'm taking care of myself. The fragrance is light and doesn't last too long but I prefer that because 1) the scent isn't offensively overpowering and 2) it feels good to reapply!

Hand Cream
If you know me, then you know that I have dry, peasant hands. No, seriously. My hands and cuticles are always so rough. That's why I must have a hand cream with me, in all areas possible! Areas include my nightstand, handbag, and desk—I have a lot lying around and am always open to trying out new hand creams. :)

I decided to get this when I purchased the Stell x Soul Sunday fragrance because it said "rose" on it. I'm into anything rose-scented. This Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream retails for $27 and has a nice lightweight lotion texture to it. I thought it would be thick and creamy like the name suggests but it feels like any other lotion. Also, this doesn't smell like rose—it smells like pepto bismo to me... :( but, hey, at least it makes my hands softer!

Cuticle Oil or Balm
So most of the times, hand cream is not enough to keep my hands and nails in tip-top shape. I often need some sort of oil or balm to really seal in the moisture and nourish my crusty cuticles. An added bonus is that it makes my nails shiny!

I received this LAIA Skincare December Facial Balm through a giveaway on Instagram and my cuticles have been loving it! It's quite pricey at $44 but contains only organic ingredients: mango butter, baobab seed oil, argan oil, and camellia seed oil.

That's it!
Thanks for reading! If you have any natural hand cream recommendations, I'd love to hear—never enough hand cream, y'know!

What do you keep on your desk to keep you feeling and looking 100%?

My Latest Obsession: Innersense Organic Beauty

May 8, 2017

Beauty Heroes Discovery Innersense Organic Beauty Hairbath Shampoo Conditioner Natural Nontoxic hellolindasau
Happy May! I've become so obsessed with Beauty Heroes' March 2017 Beauty Discovery featuring Innersense Organic Beauty's hair care and have been using it on a daily basis since. Note: I rarely use something on a consistent basis because I'm often trying new products so that signifies... love.

The great thing about Innersense Organic Beauty is that they source high-quality, organic ingredients ethically and empower their customers to practice self-care by implementing the "Hair Ceremonies" as a daily ritual. When I received this in the March Beauty Heroes box I was sooo ready to jump in the shower and pamper myself.

Plus, they recently redesigned their entire brand—isn't the minimal design so pretty?

Also, I would describe my hair as flat, thin, brittle, frizzy, and oily. It's not too dry since I chopped off the color-treated parts and am now embracing my natural hair color but it gets very oily if I don't wash it the next day.

Beauty Heroes Discovery Innersense Organic Beauty Hairbath Shampoo Natural Green hellolindasau
Hydrating Cream Hairbath, $28 for 10 oz
Ingredients: Water, Aqua- EAU, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine1, Sodium Chloride10, Glycerin1, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate1, Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate1, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate1, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside1, Glyceryl Stearate SE*6, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (Shea Butter)2, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride9, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil5, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil7*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis* 8, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil10*, Vanillin, Pogostemon Cablin Oil*9, Glycine Soja Oil*, Sodium Benzoate, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil3*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract*, Citric Acid, Hydrolyzed Quinoa*, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein*, Calophyllum Inophyllum Tamanu Oil4, Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract*, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract* *Organic

This shampoo is supposed to deliver salon quality results and contains a ton of nourishing ingredients like avocado, coconut, and shea butter. It's meant to transform dry, frizzy hair and balance the oil of the scalp. It has a light, pleasant scent that reminds me of orange cream soda (the conditioner smells like that too)!

I am quite impressed with the thick, frothy texture of this shampoo—the creamy texture lathers and foams up luxuriously with little effort. And I must say, I agree that this shampoo is comparable to salon products! Most natural shampoos are very watery but this one is super creamy.

Beauty Heroes Innersense Organic Beauty Conditoner Natural Cruelty Free hellolindasau
Hydrating Cream Conditioner, $30 for 10 oz
Ingredients: Water, Aqua- EAU, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine1, Sodium Chloride10, Glycerin1, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate1, Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate1, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate1, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside1, Glyceryl Stearate SE*6, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (Shea Butter)2, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride9, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil5, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil7*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis* 8, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil10*, Vanillin, Pogostemon Cablin Oil*9, Glycine Soja Oil*, Sodium Benzoate, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil3*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract*, Citric Acid, Hydrolyzed Quinoa*, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein*, Calophyllum Inophyllum Tamanu Oil4, Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract*, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract* *Organic

Like the shampoo, this conditioner is formulated with a majority of the same moisturizing ingredients and has a thick, creamy texture. It actually feels like a body cream.

It pairs really well with the shampoo and locks in the hydration—leaving my hair soft and silky feeling. It doesn't weigh down my hair or make it feel or look oily at the end of the day.

Beauty Heroes Innersense Organic Beauty Leave In Conditioner Natural Safe hellolindasau
Sweet Spirit Leave-In Conditioner, $24 for 10 oz
Ingredients: Water, Aqua- EAU, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Gel*1, Behentrimonium, Methosulfate2, Glycerin4, Rice Amino Acids*, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein*, Nelumbiaum Speciosum (Lotus) Flower Oil*, Citrus Sinensis Peel Oil*9, Caprylic Triglyceride, Calophyllum Tacamahaca Seed Oil3, Rosemarium Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract* Agropyron (Wheatgrass) Extract*, Honey Extract*, Cinnamomum Zelyanicum Bark Extract*, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract*, Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Root Extract*, Thymus Valgaris (Thyme) Extract**, Nelumbium Specoisum (Lotus) Flower Extract*, Plumeria Alba Flower Extract5, Aspalathus Linearis Extract6**, Cymbopogon Schoenan-thus Extract7*, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil*, Echinacea Angustifolio Extract8**, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract9**, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate *Organic **Certified Organic 

I typically stray away from leave-in conditioners as they often leave my hair feeling too oily and weighed down but this is like no other. Besides the pretty sweet orange blossom scent, it contains aloe vera, lotus flower, cranberry, and honey to soften and detangle. 

The lightweight texture absorbs into my wet hair after shampooing and conditioning. I pump a dime-size of product onto my hands then apply to my hair everyday (unless I forget) in the morning and allow my hair to air dry while driving to work. It usually takes an hour to get to work and for my short hair to completely air dry. 

I notice a huge difference with this! When I don't use it, whether I'm going to air dry or blow dry my hair, my hair feels rough and frizzy. My hair feels softer and more manageable when I apply a little on the ends of my hair. It also helps calm down the fly aways on the top of my head when I apply the remaining product left on my palms. 

Final Thoughts
I'm extremely impressed with Innersense! Since discovering Innersense, I always look forward to washing and treating my hair! I am definitely going to repurchase the shampoo, conditioner, AND the leave-in conditioner once I'm done with what I have.

The 10 oz bottles of the Innersense shampoo and conditioner retail for $28-$30 per bottle and last such a long time (I think it'll last me until the end of August?). Both the shampoo and conditioner have a rich, frothy texture, which means less product is required per wash. I use less of the leave-in conditioner so it will last me even longer. And because of that, I think their worth the price.

P.S. Thanks to Kevin who helped press the button to capture these images while I was blowing bubbles, lol.

Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30 Review

April 25, 2017

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF 30 Review hellolindasau natural skin care
It's always sunny in So Cal but now that it's spring (and almost summer), the sun has been shining even brighter. I'm always on top of protecting my skin from the harmful UV rays by using SPF on a daily basis—it's one of the easiest steps to prevent premature wrinkles.

I decided to pick the Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day with SPF 30 because I wanted to try a new sunscreen out. Prior to using this one, I've been a loyal fan of MyChelle's SPF 30 sunscreen, however, I wanted to find another natural SPF without any coconut derivatives like caprylic/capric triglyceride and glyercin as those ingredients cause my skin to break out.

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF 30 Review hellolindasau natural skin care
Ingredients: Aloe Juice**, Shea Butter**, Evening Primrose Oil*, Hemp Seed Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Borage Oil*, Almond Oil*, Grape Seed Oil*, Sesame Oil*, Sea Buckthorn Oil*, Zinc Oxide (Min. 12%), Lecithin*, Calendula*, Bilberry*, Chamomile*, Burdock Root*, Rosemary*, Fennel*, Dandelion*, Rose Hips*, Catnip*, Chickweed*, Neem*, Skullcap*, Gingko*, Linden*, Hawthorn Berry*, Green Tea*, Flaxseed*, Nettles*, Sage*, Marshmallow Root*, Cayenne*, Ginseng*, Peppermint*, St. John’s Worth*, Alfalfa*, Vitamin E Oil**, Candelilla Wax+, Guar Gum* and Gum Arabic*, Plant-sourced Xanthan Gum and Potassium Sorbate, Mica, Benzoin Tree Resin*. **Certified Organic. *Organic. +Wildcrafted

The Tinted Nutrient Day Cream retails for $55—the price is pretty steep but I told myself it will be worth it since it's supposed to be a moisturizer, sunscreen, and a tinted foundation at the same time.

The lightweight, non-greasy texture sinks into the skin quickly and adds the perfect amount of moisture without a shiny finish. Although it's called a "day cream," it doesn't have a thick texture like most creams do—instead, it feels like any conventional lotion which I really like!

There's only one shade option for the tinted version of Josh's day cream but the coverage is extremely minimal that it wouldn't even matter. Plus, it doesn't leave a white cast!

The day cream-sunscreen hybrid is formulated with a lot of antioxidant-packed and nourishing ingredients to repair and transform skin. I appreciate the fact that it contains a lot of anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and discoloration-fading ingredients.

Pros

  • Doesn't contain any type of coconut ingredients
  • Contains a lot of vitamin-rich ingredients
  • Made with naon-nano zinc oxide
  • Acts as a moisturizer and sunscreen at the same time
  • Quick-absorbing, smooth texture—not oily or drying on the skin
  • Creates the perfect base for makeup
  • No white cast
  • High quality, leak-proof glass bottle
Cons
  • The tint is barely noticeable so I still needed to follow up with foundation and concealer
  • Although it claims to be suitable for all skin types including acne prone, it clogged my pores and made my skin texture bumpy (this could be because it contains shea butter and sesame oil which are highly oleic)

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF 30 Review hellolindasau natural skin care
Overall, I really enjoy the refreshing, light texture and the convenience of this 2-in-1 day cream and SPF. I think people with normal, dry, and even oily skin would like it as well—however, if you are acne-prone and sensitive to shea butter like me, it might cause your pores to clog up. Everyone's skin chemistry is different so I would suggest trying a sample out first. Had it not clogged my pores and congested the texture of my skin, I would use this every single day because the texture is that good!

Let me know if you have any acne-safe sunscreen alternatives I should look into! I think the only hope I have is applying powder SPF since majority of liquid sunscreens contain some kind of coconut, pore-clogging, or highly oleic ingredients that don't agree to my skin.

My Top 3 Easy, Low Maintenance House Plants

April 17, 2017

Easy Low Maintenance House Plants airplants air plant tillandsia hellolindasau kinfolk

I was first introduced to house plants through my boyfriend, Kevin, about two years ago and from there, my house plant knowledge and collection has expanded drastically. Back then, I was still in school, working two part-time jobs so I knew I could the best option was to opt for low-maintenance, easy-to-care-for indoor plants. Kevin and I spent majority of our days off at the nursery, exploring new botanical babies to add to our family.

The reason I was drawn to plants was because of the aesthetically-pleasing pop of green that it adds to my room and the air-improving qualities associated with them so here are my top 3 low maintenance house plants.

Easy Low Maintenance House Plants air plant tillandsia review hellolindasau darling magazine
Airplants
Also known as tillandsia, these cute plants don't require soil (yay for no mess) and thrive off of bright light and weekly misting or bathing, depending on the environment it's in. They look great on its own or paired with an object.

My room doesn't get a lot of light since my windows are facing east so I was able to get away with misting my airplants instead of submerging it into water. I actually didn't have a good experience with the first few airplants I owned because relative to my room's lighting condition, I gave it too much water and the roots eventually began to rot—lesson learned: always make sure you adjust how you care for your plants depending on its current environment!

Kevin has a collection of 20 (and counting) which is often used as a prop in my photos. Part of his collection here.


Snake Plant
One of my very first plant babies, the snake plant releases oxygen at night, making it the perfect bedroom buddy for a better night's sleep. It filters out air pollutants like carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, benzene, and more. It's also named as NASA's top air-filtering interior botanics.

This is by far the easiest plant to care for since it survives low-light conditions and only needs watering once the soil is completely dry. I honestly only water my snake plant once every 2-3 months. Kevin has two of these guys and I barely see him water it, too.

Easy Low Maintenance House Plants golden pothos hellolindasau
Golden Pothos
Here's another indoor plant that improves air quality and looks good at the same time. The golden pothos prefers bright, indirect light and waterings when the top part of the soil is dry. It drapes as it grows so you can prune as you prefer but I personally love it when it drapes!

I would say this is probably the second hardest plant to kill (first being the snake plant) because it has a high tolerance towards extreme environments, whether it be low light or missed waterings, it will still survive!

Overall, these are my top 3 recommendations for anyone who struggle to keep plants alive. If you have suggestions for other easy-care indoor plants, let me know!

100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick Review

April 10, 2017

100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone swatch review natural hellolindasau green beauty

Lipsticks are a girl's best friend—or mine, at least. The newest addition to 100% Pure's lip collection, the Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipsticks are supposed to deliver rich pigmentation colored by fruits and long lasting performance. This is the first lipstick line where 100% Pure is offering a variety of shades from vibrant purples and oranges to pinks and nudes (finally, a break from the usual pinks and berries).

I've never owned a truly matte lipstick so seeing that this was labeled as "semi-matte" made me feel like I'm taking baby steps and training myself to more matte lippies. It's formulated with nourishing ingredients like cocoa and shea butters and retails for $29.

I picked up the shade, Sandstone, which is described as a "camel nude." I personally would say it's more of an apricot than camel as the shade leans towards the warmer orange side.

100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone review swatch green beauty natural hellolindasau
100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone review swatch green beauty natural hellolindasau

Ingredients: Theobroma Cacao (Organic Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Extracts of Prunus Cerasus (Cherry) Fruit, Prunus Domestica (Plum) Fruit, Vitis Vinifera (Cabernet Grape) Fruit, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Cacao (Chocolate), Rosa Centifolia (Rose Petals) Flower, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem, Oryza Sativa (Rice Starch), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Silica, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract

Pros
  • Very opaque color pay off
  • Applies smoothly because of the butter ingredients
  • Has a wearable, matte finish
  • Easy to reapply, doesn't get cakey
  • Feels powdery once it dries
  • Lasts super long even after eating
  • Fades/wears nicely—doesn't get patchy
  • Doesn't dry out the lips but proper prep is recommended (lip balm and scrub)
Cons
  • Tends to accentuate dry patches but exfoliating and prepping the lips with a balm will prevent it
  • Packaging feels cheap—putting on & taking off the lid makes screechy sounds and scratches the surface

100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone review lip swatch hellolindasau

All in all, this has been one of my go-to lipsticks! This is saying a lot because I am a BIG lipstick junkie! I find the shade to be flattering on my skin tone as it looks like an updated 2017 version of "my lips but better." Also, the color stays put and doesn't slip or slide and I really appreciate that there's hardly any shine. I think I'm ready to take on more matte lipsticks!

Naked Truth Beauty Arwen Highlighter Review

I was extremely ecstatic when I discovered the Naked Truth Beauty products—all are free of coconut and come in a biodegradable, retractable tube.

I was lucky enough to try the all of the products at Indie Beauty Expo LA and meet Lauren, the amazing founder of Naked Truth Beauty. I received the Arwen Highlighter ($34), a pretty metallic pearl shade and have been loving it since!
