This week we’ve been talking about introducing tweens to natural cosmetics (“natural” is key with still-developing bodies!), plus the Pantone color of the year and the fact that lead in lipstick is still an issue (in my opinion, at least), five years after the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics first released their test results. And I’ve come across some great things on other sites to share with you as well—including this joyous image by Camdiluv ♥ (isn’t it great?).
Here’s what else I’m reading+enjoying this week:
- Alexandra pondered the pluses and minuses of the Clarisonic at No More Dirty Looks. I’ve written about my Clarisonic, too, and I’m firmly in the “love it!” category—but Alexandra has made me re-think how often I should use it. Do you have one? Love it or leave it?
- Crunchy Betty shared 5 Fresh Ways to Use Ginger in Homemade Beauty, and I can’t wait to try these recipes! Seriously, I love ginger. I love natural and homemade beauty. Match made in heaven.
- Over on the Gaiam blog, Gwen Lawrence writes about Kaki Mudra: yoga for your face! I love yoga…this is a new one to me. Have you tried it?
- And a thank you to Sarah of BESkinCareful for the mention in her Versatile Blogger Awards. (She’s convinced of the magical powers of coconut oil…)
What brilliant things have you read this week? —Aleigh
