I’m so thrilled it’s March, you guys! It’s my favorite month: Springtime + my birthday = happiness. I’m also excited about this month’s Take the Boot Challenge at EarthFare—they’re offering a free Honeybee Gardens mascara if you trade in a not-so-clean mascara. (Love!) This is a mascara that’s been on my list to try since I read about how much Siobhan at No More Dirty Looks loves it. I agree with her that I’m not super enthusiastic about seeing phenoxyethanol on the ingredients list, but I’m also willing to at least take it for a test drive, comfortable that I know what I’m getting—and that it’s still a much better option than most of the traditional mascaras out there. Now if I can just dig up an old tube of synthetic mascara to exchange…
Here’s what else I’ve been reading+enjoying lately:
- Baking soda doesn’t have aluminum in it. Just ask Crunchy Betty.
- Jolene Hart and O&N Collective are collaborating on a spring giveaway—just leave a comment on this post about how you’re detoxing your beauty routine by midnight March 5 (that’s tomorrow!).
- More great uses for apple cider vinegar (including an acne treatment!) from the Green Beauty Guide.
